FRENCHIE

A quick post for this Sunday night.  I saw this adorable pup stamp at Buffalo Stamps and Stuff, my local stamp store.  On a card sample that is.  Unfortunately (I'm an immediate gratification girl) for me, they were sold out of the stamp.  So when I got home, I went on a search for it.  It's from Impression Obsession , but everyone was out of it.  I finally found it and when it arrived I headed up to my stamp rooms to color it up and make a card.


AWWW....right?



Stamp - Impression Obsession -Dina Kowal Designs H13581
Fancy Square dies are Spellbinders Grand Dies
White flower soft on hat
colored with Copics

Hope you had a wonderful weekend.
Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great day. Until later....

BUTTERFLY

Good Saturday Morning.  Snowing again and cold here after a two day respite.
  Temps are down again and winter driving skills are needed!

Just before Christmas, I purchased the Gemini Jr. during all the hype on HSN.
I really didn't need another die cutting machine, but the lure was it was small, electric,and
could be used right on my work table instead of having to get up to go to the back room
of my two room stamp room to cut a die.  It came as a bundle with some beautiful dies.
I am loving the dies, the machine, not so much.  This is one of the dies that
came in the bundle.




Butterfly die - Crafter's Companion
White Scallop die - Little B
Additional butterfly die - Little B
Flower sprigs - Dee's Distinctively die
Designer Paper - DCWV
Gold Mirror card stock
Black 6x6 card base

Keep warm if you are somewhere cold!

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

BSS IDEA - WINTER SCENE DIE

WELCOME TO THE BUFFALO STAMPS AND STUFF WEEKLY IDEA.

Cold enough for ya?  WOW, we turn our heat down at night, and the kitchen floor has been
so cold in the mornings, we have adjusted how much to turn it down.  

I feed the squirrels and birds, and they have been coming in flocks to eat.
Even a bunny or two has been visiting to eat the seed on the ground.  

Supposed to get more normal this week.  Keep warm and cozy.

This weeks card is made with a beautiful winter die.  
I cut the die out and colored some things, and paper pieced behind
the lights, the windows, and the mountains and ground.

Then I cut a piece of glossy card stock and sponged it with distress ink, 
stamped the snow with white pigment ink and set it with a heat tool.
I placed a small circle on the paper before I started to ink it to form
a full moon.I then adhered the sponged piece behind the die.


Die - Amy Design - Village Frame Straight ADD10121
Paper - Royal Blue, White and Glitter White Cardstock

Inside


Snowflake die is Martha Stewart.

Keep warm and drive carefully, stay safe.

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