BSS MONDAY IDEA - Christmas Card to "DIE" For

Welcome back to another Monday Idea here at
 Buffalo Stamps and Stuff.

This week's idea is a gate fold Christmas card that you make
from a new Sizzix die.  Everything on the card is made
from the dies included in the set.




How cute is that!

Die set - Sizzix - Christmas Tree Thinlits Fold-a-long (660665)
I used two shades of green card stock, plus white card stock
for the sentiment die. 
Designer paper is Echo Park, the Story of Christmas.
The tiny ornaments on the inside of the tree were cut
from foil and glitter paper, as well as the poinsettia
for the top of the tree.

The card cuts all in one piece and you just
decorate it however you want on the front.
6 dies include
The folded Christmas tree
The small insert Christmas tree
The sentiment
Three small ornaments on one die
The holly in the sentiment die
Poinsettia tree topper die

Fun card to put together, and I am sure the recipient will be
thrilled to receive it.

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

BSS MONDAY IDEA - A SIMPLE CARD

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

Today, I'm sharing a simple card, letting this wonderful stamped image speak
 for itself.  Whether you guess that the boy stops on his way home from school, or
that he actually skips going on to school and takes one of the last nice warm Fall days
to relax and fish you have to just love the story this stamp tells, however
you interpret it.

Close up of stamped image.


My finished card.


Stamp - Impression Obsession-G1996
Inside Sentiment - Just Rite Clear Set-Colorful Brush Strokes CR02143
The small words Escape and Explore are old tiny stamps that came
in sets, and Sharon started to break up the sets and sell them 
separately so you could pick and choose the words you liked.
Sorry, I don't remember who make them.
Die - Spellbinders Rectangle Die, but you could cut your own
Gray, blue, white card stock, and the yellow designer paper
is a piece of card stock from DCWV.
Corners were punched out with a Fiskars corner punch
Onyx Liquid pearl dots on curved corners
So they are all uniform, Do a dot on each end
of the curve and one in the middle, then one
in between the end and middle one on each side.
Yellow twine
Used Wild honey and vintage photo distress in to ink the edges
of the designer paper.

This little guy has the right idea, take the time to do
more of what YOU want to do.

Thanks for your visit today.  Have a great day.  Until later.....

Nice Ride

Hi friends. Cold here today, Fall is definitely in the air.  I must get out in my yard and start disassembling all the yard ornaments, lights and plants one of these days soon

I made this card for the color challenge at Split Coast Stampers.  Colors were
Pistachio, Pool Party and Sahara Sand.  They use Stampin Up colors, but you
just need to get close to the colors of the week.


Stamp - Serendipity Rubber Stamps (old)
Sentiment Stamp is from dollar bin at Michael's
Card stock using colors of the week, plus wood plank
designer paper
Leaf die
Braided twine
Colored with Copics

That will do it for me.
Thanks for stopping by today  Have a great day.  Until later........

BSS MONDAY IDEA - SNOWMAN GATE FOLD CARD

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

Before we get started with this weeks card, I apologize for being late
with this post.  I pulled a muscle in my back on Saturday, and this card
wasn't finished.  And I was off my feet and resting my back until today.
It is getting much better each day.

This week I made a gate fold card with a wonderful
Christmas image.



Close up of adorable image.



What I used:

Stamp -Impression Obsession -Merry Kiss-Mas (L19021)
Papers - Light blue and white card stock, White and blue
glitter card stock, and Designer paper - Painted Poinsettias
6x6 stack Wild Rose Studio ((PP047)
Dies - Memory Box Frosty Border - (98171) and
Have a Jolly Christmas ( (99016)
WOW Clear Sparkle Embossing Powder (WS15R)
Red Gingham Ribbon

Card was made by cutting the light blue cardstock
12x6 inches.  Score on each end at 1" and 31/2"
The one inch score line is a valley fold and the 31/2 score
line is a mountain fold.  After folding you have a
6 x 5 inch gate fold card (will fit in a 5x7 envelope)
I cute the white mats for the 1 inch fold at 3/4 x 5 3/4.
*For the inside 2 1/2" end mats I cut at 5 3/4 x 2 1/4"
I ran these white mats through a snowflake embossing 
folder, I used a Darice folder.
*The outside designer paper mats were cut the same size
as the inside mats.
I colored the image with Copic Markers then inked the
entire image with Versafine clear embossing ink and
sprinkled with the Wow embossing powder and heated.
I cut a mat of  blue glitter paper to go behind it.
Adhere it with foam tape to the left side 1 inch piece
only, centering it on the front of the card for placement.
Add the die cuts to the inside.
Add ribbon bow.

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