BSS- MONDAY IDEA - SHUT THE DOOR!!

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea

A while back, Sharon introduced this die cut, exclusively made for Buffalo Stamps and Stuff of a screen door.  She made up kits, which include two die cuts for each card one for the front and one
for the inside and the screen.  Enough to make four cards.


So, this week, I had a play with one of the kits.  I chose white doors, she cuts them in all colors.
The first one, I sponged on bundled sage distress ink, added a yellow brad and a sequin for the door knob.
The inside bird bath scene is by Inkadinkado.

The second one, I decided to make a winter door.  I used the little rectangles that were cut from the bottom of the door, which are included in the kit, and cute smaller blue panels, and glued them back into the holes, after adhering the door to the card.  For the window in the top I used a piece of acetate. The inside stamp is by B-Line Stamps.

For the third one, I used paper from the Stella and Rose, Mabel papers by My Mind's Eye.  I ran the door through the wood grain cuttlebug embossing folder and sponged with Vintage Photo distress ink.  Added a brad for the knob.  The kitten is an old unmounted stamp I've had forever and the inside stamp of the boy building a tree house is from The Rubber Cottage.

For the last one, I also ran it through the wood grain embossing folder, sponged with Barn Red distress ink. Added a brad knob.  The inside scene is a stamp by Impression Obsession.




These are fun little cards to make and give. 
Thanks for stopping by today.  Hope you have a great Monday. Until later......

Reminds me of my families summer camp in the Adirondacks. We had a screen door just like that.
