Man's and Girl's Best Friend


Happy Sunday.  Well the temperature went up and the snow is melting fast. Leaving behind
puddles everywhere.  Hard to believe a foot of snow could go down so fast.
Glad for the little wild animals who feed at my bird feeder, bunnies, squirrels and
two young deer, as food is scarce when is that cold and snowy.

I bought this digi from the January release at Whimsy Stamps and then hadn't had
a chance to color it up.  So Whimsy is running their monthly facebook challenge
and they want you to use a Whimsy image that you would not normally think to
use for a theme of Love/Valentine.




Who doesn't think of  love when they think of their dog!!!!

Two small red hearts punched
Paper White, black, royal blue cardstock
Sentiment is computer generated.
Colored with Copic Markers
Clouds sponged with Marvy blue die ink against
a torn paper towel.

Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday.

Snowman


Hello blogging friends.  Rough week here in the Buffalo, New York area.  We had
a foot of snow here in a northern suburb and the temperatures were below zero all
week.  Schools were closed for the last three days.  The Thruway and some 
main arteries were also closed.  So since we are retired we just hunkered down
except to clear snow and stayed warm. I made soup and baked cookies.
 Both my daughter and son-in-law are
teachers and kids are in college, so everyone was home too.

So, I bought this Whimsy snowman stamp (Candle Light) SZWS193) back
in early December and never got the chance to color it up and make a card.
This week seemed like a great time to do just that!!!




Paper - Glitter white,Gray and green card stock, and designer paper BOBunny
Evergreen tree die unknow, Wooded trees die, Gina Marie
White card stock base, card is 51/2x51/2 inches square.
Colored with Copics

Thanks for stopping by today,  have a good day, Until later....

BSS IDEA - ALCOHOL LIFT- INK

WELCOME TO THE BUFFALO STAMPS AND STUFF IDEA.

For this weeks idea, I pulled out the Alcohol Inks and The Alcohol Lift-Ink I had bought
and not used yet.  My inspiration was a video by Jennifer McGuire, which I have linked to
the word video, just click on it.




The cards are 5x7 inches. The mats are 43/4x63/4 inches.
The Imagine butterfly stamp set is Laurel Burch from
Stampendous (CR508) and includes the sentiment.
I used Yupo card stock from Tim Holtz and various colors of Alcohol
Inks.

The idea is using various alcohol inks on a piece of the Yupo cardstock
and getting a pattern you like, you let it dry thoroughly..
Then after it dries completely, you ink up your stamp with
  the lift ink,and stamp the image/images.  Set this piece aside to dry, then wipe with
a soft rag or paper towel. Using a piece of regular cardstock,
 immediately stamp the lifted image. Two completely different cards!

Please remember to clean the stamp thoroughly after the lifted ink
stamping and before stamping into the lift ink pad or you will
contaminate the pad with color.

Hope you get to try this, it is addicting!

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