Snowman

No card today.  I have been working on this snowman wreath for a couple of weeks now, and finally finished it up today.  I just love him.  Lots of cutting and attaching the mech to a wire wreath, but he is so cute.  Thought I would share it with you.






A cardinal and some green above his earmuff


The mess is very sparkly, but picture doesn't show it.
I also added some snowflakes and jewels in the center of them.


Such a handsome snowman!!!  LOVE him.



Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a great day.

BSS IDEA-Santa Gets Framed

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Idea.

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving with friends and family. 

Did you go out into the Christmas Shopping madness?  I did not.  I used to
get up to get to the stores for certain toys and games, but those days are
over.  I did run out later at night on Friday to get a new game for
Christmas Eve, but by then the crowds were over and I just zupped in
and out quickly.

Well, in the spirit of the upcoming visit by the man in red here is
this weeks offering.

Close up of stamped image.





Stamp - Santas Pick up - Stampendous (CRR274)
Paper - Gold Mirror Paper
Snowflake Dies - Penny Black
Red Pearls - Kaiser
Cuttlebug Snowflake Embossing folder
Sponger Snowbanks
Colored with Copics
Stardust Stickles
Liquid Pearls-White

Cut a piece of the mirror card stock to fit
the front of your card.  Center a die that is big enough
for your image on the mirror card stock and cut.
Place the frame you created in the embossing folder
and run it through.  Adhere your stamped image
so it is centered in the frame.  Adhere the framed
image to the front of your card.

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

BSS IDEA-POP AND TWIST PANEL CARD


Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Idea.

Each Monday, we try to spark your creative juices with a new idea, 
technique, or product.

I saw this card a week ago, and knew I had to have a go at it.
If you love cards that have movement, you are going to love this one.

The link to this card tutorial on youtube is:

This gal, Rina, takes you slowly through each step, AND
you won't believe how easy this card is to make.

If you love decorating cards, you are going to love this one.





Stamp Set - My Favorite Things -Polar Bear Pals ((BB40)
Snowflake Print Paper - My Mind's Eye-Cozy Wishes
Dark Red Card stock - Coordinations
White Glitter paper
Red Gingham Paper
Large Snowflake die inside - Poppystamps - Laurette Snowflake 1592
Colored with Copics
Stickles - Star Dust
WOW  embossing powder- white sparkly

Give this card a go, you will be surprised how easy it is to put together.
Hint:  There are three main pieces to the card, The base card, the
folding mechanism, and the panel.  Make up your panel with all the
layers and images before attaching to the mechanism.  Harder to decorate
if you attach the panel then try to decorate.

BSS IDEA - Scenic Stamp

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Idea.

I bought a Penny Black Stamp a few weeks ago because it had
a beautiful scene.  I tried coloring it up several times with 
terrible results. 

Last week, Penny Black ran a week of tutorials and I was
notified by email.  When I opened the tutorial up, lo and behold,
Jill was showing how she does this type of stamp.

A lightbulb went on and after watching the video I could
not wait to try her method.

Here are the results


The stamp is Penny Black-Hidden Lane (40-416)
This could also be done like a winter scene by leaving the
ground white.

Here is a link to the youtube video.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PtgxFaNhg-A

I can't wait to get some more of these beautiful scene
stamps, love the one in the video!

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