BSS IDEA - FLOWER LANTERNS

WELCOME TO THE BUFFALO STAMPS AND STUFF IDEA.

I hope you are enjoying the last bit of summer before
kids start to return to school.

This week, I tackled the Flower Lanterns stamp
from Penny Black.  The card I am showing here
today is my third attempt.  But I finally figured it
out.  I stamped the image onto water color paper
using Antique Linen distress ink.  I then 
water colored it using various colors of my
distress inks.  Just tap your pad onto your
craft sheet and spritz with water to create
water colors.  




Stamp - Penny Black - Flower Lanterns (40-547)
Embossing Folder - Sizzix 3-D Textured Impressions
Basketweave
Candi embellishments
I loaded the brush with dark brown and then
green water color paint and tapped it over
the image to create splatters.
Gingham bow to complete.

Then
I used the same method
of stamping, so you get the detail, but colored

with my Copics.


I think I like the copics the best, but have
to admit that watercoloring is not my talent.

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

BSS IDEA - STENCILING

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Idea

A few cooler days brought on some productive craft time!

I bought these two beautiful stencils a couple of weeks ago
while in the store, and finally got round to checking them out.

The card below is my first attempt, and I just love how it
turned out.



The stencils are by Altenew

Layered Dahlia Stencil A
Layered Dahlia Stencil B
Butterfly Punch - Martha Stewart

I used a yellow dye ink pad, and
Wild Honey distress ink on my card.
You end up with  white border, but I cut
the white border off so I could mat with
a deep yellow card stock.

The Stencils make a large card 6x6 inches
But you could always use a portion of the stencil
and make smaller note cards like these 5 x 3 3/4 inch cards.


Loved using these stencils, make a very pretty card.

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

BSS IDEA - YOU ARE JAWSON

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff  Idea.

I took a class with Mona and we made the most adorable
magic color card using this stamp set and die set.

And, it seemed like summer swim time was the perfect time to
make a card to share with you with it.

The card design I found on youtube by Dawn Griffin
and it is called a Peekaboo Slider Card.
If you would like to see how it goes together, here is
the link.

The magic is that the message changes on the inside when you open it.
If you watch the video, you will see how it works.
