Happy Mother's Day 

We attended a nice breakfast with our daughter and son-in-law this morning
and they brought me a beautiful Fuchsia hanging plant for the patio that the hummingbirds
love to come to.  I have had one of these plants each year for as long as I can
remember, so very pretty.

Playing again with my Lavinia Stamps. 





Love these night time dancing fairies . 

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

Tulip Delight

WELCOME TO THE BUFFALO STAMPS AND STUFF IDEA.

Hello friends

Another week has passed. They seem to go so
quickly,  which I attribute to my craft rooms.
Always a couple of project going at a time to
keep me busy.  

Do you love Tulips?
Well if you do, your going to love this!

This Week's card.








The inside


This card was made with the new Altenew Tulip 3D Embossing Folder.


I ran a 6x6 piece of white card stock in the folder through my die cutting machine.
I colored the tulips different colors with copics, and cut each one out.

OR, YOU COULD chose different colors for the tulips and place a small piece
of colored card stock on each tulip in the folder and again run it through.

 I ran a green piece of card stock through for the leaves and stems.

I then fussy cut out each tulip and stem and leaves.

Lastly I glued the flowers and leaves and stems to a slightly
 trimmed piece of 6x6 inch  light blue card stock, which I had
run through my die cutting machine using 
the tulip 3D embossing folder.

The blue card stock piece was glued to a 6x6 inch piece of
silver holographic paper (DCWV 6x6 pad)
 and attached to a 6x6 inch white card.

I cut  one additional tulip,leaf and stem for the inside.
The inside sentiment is from A Spellbinders Spring Quotes (STP-026)

The bee charm is from BSS-Tell the Bees, Hackney & Co.
The butterfly stamp is an older stamp from my stash.

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

Sea Life

Hello friends.  I have been playing with my Lavinia stamps, some I have had
for awhile, and lots of new ones.  I watched some recent videos and
got a lot of different ideas, from some very talented ladies.

I made a card using some of their techniques.  Will improve with
some more practice.  It's messy and time consuming, but fun.




All of the stamps used are from Lavinia Stamps
3D embossing folder is Crafter's Companion
Corners are Spellbinders
Inks used for background Ranger Distress Oxides
Inks used for stamping - Elements by Lavinia, and Clair
by Versafine Clair

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