BSS IDEA - SUMMERTIME and FRIENDS

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

Hot enough for you guys!!  WOW, a little less humidity would be nice.
My poor flowers start to wilt by 9 am.

Do you color up an image and then look for papers to use on
your card, or do you color your stamped image to go with
certain papers?  I have always, ever since I started stamping
colored the image up first without any thought to how I will
use it on a card.  Then I agonize over what papers to use.
Probably not the best method, but how I have always done
it.  It kinda makes you look at color schemes you most
likely would not have chosen first.

Here is my take on summer and friends for this week.


Orange a royal blue color combo.


Close up of sweet image.


Inside of the card.


Stamp - Penny Black Tandem (40-454)
The inside sentiment is included.
Die - Lil'Inker Designs -Dual Dotted Rectangles
Base card is 5x7 Royal Blue card stock.
Used an orange dotted and striped paper and bright orange card stock
 for the panels and some of the bright orange and royal blue
for the added 1/4 inch strips.  Flowers are from my stash.
I added green and yellow Stickles to the image too.

I stamped the image on white card and colored it up 
with Copics.  Using a paper cutter, I trimmed around the image
Leaving part of the mouses tail and part of the umbrella
outside the cut out area.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Hope you have a great day.  Until later.........

Fence - Rounded Fence - Memory Box 98287

I cute a Piece of paper 5x6 inches and sponged the clouds

I cut the cityscape die twice, once with light gray card stock

I off set the light and dark matching buildings
and adhered them together.  Matted the finished piece

Stamp - North Wood Rubber Stamps (PP10007)

I glittered the entire image by stamping a clear

I had covered it completely.  Then just sprinkled
the embossing glitter on and shook off the excess

Love these hydrangeas in the bucket, so pretty.

BSS IDEA - Group Therapy

Welcome to another Monday Idea at Buffalo Stamps and Stuff.

Happy 4th of July!

Love this stamp and the sentiment.



Stamp-Whipper Snapper Designs-(MZ109)-Group Therapy
5x7 inch white  card base
designer paper is Graphic 45 Enchanted Forest Collection-Sumptuous Floral
Circle dies-Spellbinder's Nestabilities
Stickles - Ice
Colored with Copics
I cut two umbrellas so I could pop it up with a foam dot.
Green and white striped ribbon bow


Close up of Stickles on drinks


I ran ice stickles around the edges of the glasses
to make them look frosty.


Sharon wanted me to show you this new die.  It's from
Kaiser Craft, and it leaves stitching lines and
it pops up the center of the squares when you emboss
it after cutting it.

Don't those drinks look delish!!!!
and you gotta love the sentiment
Group Therapy which is on the stamp,
what are friends for, right!!

Enjoy your 4th of July!
Thanks for stopping by today.  Until later..............
