BSS IDEA - Beach Pups

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff  Idea


Hello friends hope everyone is doing well.
Are you tired of all the rain, we are. But
this coming week is supposed to have some
nice cooler days, let's hope.

Before I get to this week's card, just an update
on the pond.....WE HAVE A BRAND NEW BABY
FISH!  Yep, orange and white just like it's Mama
and only about an inch long, so cute.  The Mama
looks like a cow with a bloated belly, so I am
assuming there will be more.  Happy news
since we netted the pond and got rid of the Heron.

This week's card



Stamp - Newton's Nook Designs (NN2106S04)
Sentiments included and small seashell stamp
(see inside of card below)
Card Stock - Doodlebug Designs-Petite Prints
Blue Jean dot/stripes (6124)
Green Glitter paper
I added the sand, sea and sky to the background.
Colored with Copic Markers

Inside Sentiments

Hopefully we will have some warm beach days
in August.

That's it for me this week.
Have a good week
Thanks for stopping by today,
Until later...

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 -

WELCOME TO THE BUFFALO STAMPS AND STUFF IDEA

Hello friends.  Hard to believe that July is coming
to an end in just another week.  
Have you been watching the Olympics on TV?
Have watched quite a bit of it here.

This week's card








The flower die is Gina Marie Designs

Light Blue Cardstock  41/4 x 5 1/2 inch tent fold card
Designer paper that flower die is cut from is Craft Consortium
6x6 inch Ink Drops-Vivid Pad .
I cut the stems and leaves from green card stock and
shaded with a Copic Marker and glued them in place
over the ones cut from the main die.
I covered the entire die with Wink of Stella and it looks
beautiful, but hard to photograph.
The butter fly die is from an older spellbinders die set
which I cut out in yellow glitter paper and vellum and covered
the vellum with gold wink of stella..
Inside sentiment is Altenew (ALT3201) and says
"In a world where you can be anything, BE KIND"

That is it for  me this week.  

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a good week.
Until later..........

BSS IDEA - Christmas in July

WELCOME TO THE BUFFALO STAMPS AND STUFF IDEA.

Hello friends, another week has passed,
and  a very wet one it was.  Lots of flooding
and damage all around us.  Our yard had
standing water where the neighbors driveway
sits higher than our yard and there is always
runoff when it rains.  AND the pond filled
up right to the top and over.  Good thing we have
small boulders instead of flat rock around the
entire pond, or we would have had goldfish swimming
in the grass!!

This week I thought we would celebrate
Christmas in July with the super cute
stamp set from Colorado Stamp Co.
called Christmas Presents (AJ392)
The sentiments  used on the card came
from this set also.




I colored with Copic Markers and used
various inks to ink the backgrounds.
Lots of  Stickles, but hard to catch on
the camera.  These sweet images by Children's book Author
and Illustrator, Anita Jeram are so very endearing
and fun to color too.

That's it for me this week.

Thanks for stopping by today,
Have a good week.
Until later.....
