BSS MONDAY IDEA - Snow and more Snow


WELCOME TO THE BUFFALO STAMPS AND STUFF MONDAY IDEA. 

Hope everyone was able to dig out and stay warm these past few days.
This has been some winter!  I know we are all looking forward to
Spring this year, but seems like it is a ways off yet.

This week's card is of a beautiful stamp I purchased at BSS last week of
a snowy scene of a cabin the the woods.


Remind you of our snowy weather this winter?

Click to enlarge to see the sparkly snow.


Base card is 5x7 inches white card stock
Layers are navy and forest green with white between each layer.
Tabs are made from a strip of the green card stock with rounded
corners, or you can leave them square.
Stamp is from Impression Obsession (J7763)
Deer Trio die is Memory Box (98166)
I used a snow writer from DecoArt to add snow texture to
the trees and ground snow.  Then while still wet, added
white glitter.
Colored with Copic Markers

Hoping for a warm up this week and some melting, running out of 
places to put the white stuff.

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

Wise Kitty

Hello friends.  It is downright freezing here.  Ran some errands today and stopped in at my favorite stamp store for some goodies.  Going to be below zero with the wind chill factor for the next few days.

Made this card with a new stamp I purchased at Stampendous.  I have this stamp from years ago, but it is smaller and the scene includes another book on the table with a little bird sitting on it.  I always loved this stamp and when I saw the kitty up closer, just had to have it.






Stamp - Stampendous, inside sentiment (Whipper Snapper) and sentiment on front (Stampa Rosa) are old. stamps.
Cream base card, light blue textured card stock
Small glass hearts
Bow die is Tim Holtz Alterations by Sizzix
Embossing folder frame is also by Sizzix
sponged with Vintage Photo distress ink around edges
Colored with Copics

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

BSS MONDAY IDEA - ALL GLITTERED UP


Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea. 

Today's idea is one last Valentine and this one is all glittered up!  Gotta love that bling!










Card base is white card stock 5x7 inches
Silver, white, and red glitter paper is docrafts
Papermania, which is the only glittered paper I
have had that cuts die cuts perfectly!

Dies - Cherub is Impression Obsession (125-M)
Cascading Hearts - Spellbinders (S4-457)
Inside die - 5x7 Enchanted Labels 28 (S6-003)
Inside sentiment is a poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
that I did on word and printed out.  I found the poem online
just by googling the title.

Hope you get your Valentines finished up this week in
time for the big day.  I am wrapping 25 Hershey bars in Valentine
designer papers, for my daughter's 1st grade class.

Silver glitter mat is 43/4x53/4 inches
The white glitter heart die cut is backed with a red glitter piece.
I popped up the little cherub and his arrow.  Because
I was adhering them to glitter paper, I put Tombow glue (green cap)
on the pop dots that would be against the glitter paper.

Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a great week.

HERE'S MY HEART


Hi friends, hope everyone is keeping well and warm.  We have about 10 -12 inches of snow on the ground and it is piled everywhere.  Below freezing temps too.  So, have stayed snuggled in and warm and stamping.

I pulled the drawer full of Magnolia stamps out and went through the Valentine ones to make some cards  for some of my little friends.

Oh goodness, I forgot how cute these little ones are.


My finished card.


                    

Stamp, Magnolia, sorry don't know the name of it,
when I bought these, they didn't label them!
Paper - Carta Bella - Words of Love 6x6 pad.
Spellbinders die
Stamp sentiment - My Favorite Things
Softly wired ribbon tucked behind the image
is my new favorite thing, it;s called Crazy Mesh, by Wyla, Inc.
I got it at Christmas, comes on rolls in two sizes and all colors
and I just cut the width and length I need.  Makes great bows too.
Got it at JoAnn's.
Colored with Copic

I'm going to enter this card into the following challenges

Midweek Magnolia #106- Valentine Love

Thanks for stopping by today, have a great day, until later.........
