and what supplies you need to achieve these beautiful foil backgrounds

LONE WOLF

Hello blogging friends.  I recently watched several videos on you tube by Kevin Nakagawa, owner
and artist behind the Stampscapes line of stamps.  Many years ago, I became interested in
scene stamping, and was fortunate enough to take a couple of classes with Kevin at the
Adventures in Stamping, Akron Ohio Stamp Show.This led me to teach several classes
at my local stamp store.  I amassed many of the stamps in his collection and enjoyed
scene stamping for a long time.  Then, the stamps became neglected and packed in
plastic bins with covers on a shelf.  

After watching the latest video on his you tube video, I got the itch to get the
stamps out and create a card.  So, long story short, here it is, and since I ordered
some new unmounted stamps and have watched more of  his videos, this won't be
the last of the cards you will be seeing involving scene stamping from me.


The card was created on deep purple card stock using pigment inks which are all
new techniques since I last used the stamps.

I am also a Wolf lover, and Kevin recently released an unmounted plate of
rubber stamps with wolves.  This is my first attempt , so expect to learn something
new each time I create a card.

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

BSS IDEA - MISS YOU

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Idea.

Wasn't it nice to see the Sun?  Even the dog stayed out in the yard 
longer to investigate what winter has left behind.

We installed a new kitchen floor last week and finally got the new
baseboard up and put everything back in place.  Looks great, but
these two old people now know it is the last floor we will be doing
ourselves!  And of course, in the middle of doing that, the sump pump
quit and we had to install a new one, never fails folks!!!

Today's card is a stamp from a  sweet new Penny Black clear set.




Stamp - Penny Black -Space Reserved (30-535) Clear Set
Grass die and Frame die - Gina Marie Designs. Branch die-Spellbinders
Tiny Blossoms on tree are from a hand punch.  Pink Stickles on blossoms.
Sky sponged with Salty Ocean distress ink.
Colored with Copic Markers.
