Bio.
I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with likeminded people.
I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself.
This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!

BSS IDEA - COFFEE

WELCOME TO THE BUFFALO STAMPS AND STUFF IDEA


We have been plunged into our second of two seasons, Summer.
The furnace has quieted down and the air conditioner is on.

We are redoing our living room completely.  Total new
look, furniture, rugs, the works.  What was I thinking!!!
More work than I remembered, and since I am many years
older than the last time we did this, it isn't as much fun as
I remembered.  But will be so nice when it is done.

Cute stamp and word set for today's card.
Here is one for all you coffee lovers!



Stamp and word set - Cup of Java-Penny Black (30-475)
Paper - Turquoise, White, and Red Card stock
Designer paper is from Graphic 45, Mother Goose Collection.
Small flower cut from designer paper.

MAGICAL

Hi Friends, hope all is well, and back to normal after our long weekend here in the U.S.
We had a quiet weekend, redoing our living room completely, so boxing up the "stuff" we
don't want.  Furniture is sitting in warehouse, waiting for the carpet to be delivered and installed.
Forgot how much work all this is and we were a lot younger the last time we did it!!!




The inside


Today's card is a cute fold and I love the image.

Stamp - Whimsey Unicorrn
Sentiment is old
Papers are old, 
Aqua and white cardstock

The card fold is made by scoring an
81/2 inch x 11 inch sheet of card stock at the half
way mark on both edges (4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches)
After scorning, place the sheet in your paper cutter
diagonally from corner to corner.  'That is it
now you have two cards ready to fold and crease and decorate.

The mats can be made the same way as the card, then just
trim 1/4 inch off the first one and 1/2 inch off the second,
or whatever measurements you choose.

Adhere half your image to the left side.  If you colored with
markers that show through, remember to put an extra backing
on this piece as the back will show when the card is opened.

Place a sentiment half on the right side, this will insure
that the card will stay closed.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.  Until later....
