Bio.
I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with like minded people.I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself.This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!

BSS IDEA - Pinecone Christmas

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff  Idea.

Wow it's getting dark so early now.  Worked in
the garden Sunday morning, cutting down the
Annuals and cleaning out all the potted plants.
Hauled the cushions for the patio furniture to 
the basement and stacked the furniture to cover 
later this week.  Loving the cooler weather,
but not looking forward to what comes next.

Speaking of what comes next, I have a Christmas
card for you today.



Pine Cone image - Colorado Craft Company
Big and Bold - Pine  Branch & Pine cones (BB264)
Papers - Green and white card stock
Red mirror card stock
Designer paper is Simple Stories-Country Christmas Pack
Sentiment is a sticker from the paper pack.

I colored the image with distress inks.
I first stamped the image with Versafine Black ink.
Then embossed with clear embossing ink.
I colored the pine cones with a Copic E31
I then used a blending tool and Vintage Photo
to darken some areas of the pine cones
I used Lucky Clover distress ink with the
blending tool all over the pine branches
I then cute out the bottom of the pine cones and
around the pine branches.

Made a very pretty card and it didn't take forever.
I did pop up the image with foam tape.

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

BSS IDEA - Ghost Pups

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Idea.

Wow, October is just zipping by.  I have been
 making some Halloween cards to send to
 my little friends in our family.

 Need to get out in the yard and start
putting the patio furniture away for the winter, and close
the pond, already too cool at night to to feed the fish anymore.
You don't really ever need to feed them, they can survive
and thrive perfectly off the pond plants and nutrients.
They will winter under ice.  The oldest one in our pond
is 10 years old, and two new little fish were born this year.

Cute stamp set used for my card this week.


Stamp set - Stampendous -Lick My Feet (SSC1322)
Papers - Background paper - Pebbles
Flag Strips - American Craft Halloween Stack
Torn Edge Die 
Colored with Copics
Finished card is 5x7 inch tent fold card.

There are two more Ghost pups in the set,
along with 7 sentiments.

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