BSS IDEA - EAT DESSERT FIRST


WELCOME TO THE BUFFALO STAMPS AND STUFF DEA.

Even though we are staying home mostly, it seems like the days and weeks 
are passing quickly. I am keeping busy in my craft room, making masks,
catching up on new hints on Ancestry with the many family trees I am researching, and
of course, cleaning cooking and the laundry.  I would like to be out in the yard
more, but it has just been too hot, and redheads with light skin don't do well
in the sun!

This weeks card




Stamp set-Stampendous Sweet Treats SSC1298 clear set.
This set includes 13 clear food stamps, and 4 sentiment
stamps.  The inside sentiment is one of them.

Martha Stewart punch.

Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a great week.
Until later......
Stay Safe.

BSS IDEA - Stained Glass Sunflower

WELCOME TO THE BUFFALO STAMPS AND STUFF IDEA.

Hope everyone is finding a way to keep cool.  Just when we are restricting
going out, the weather turns into the hottest summer we have had in years.
Can't even enjoy being outside for very long in the yard...........ugh.

Hope you are all keeping well and using your spare time for creating.

This weeks card.




Stamp - Stained Glass Sunflower-Whimsy Stamps (SGD102)
I stamped the image with clear embossing ink on Vellum .
I sprinkled silver embossing powder of the ink and heat set it.
I then colored the image on the BACK side of the vellum using
Alcohol ink markers. coloring the background light blue and leaving
some white spots for clouds.
I cut out the image and framed it in black and mounted it onto a
white 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch white card.

I love how it turned out.  In person, the silver looks just like
the lead of a real stained glass window.

That's it for me this week.  Was in the store on Saturday and I have lots
of new stuff I bought to show you in the weeks ahead.

Stay safe.

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

The Elephant

Hope you are enjoying our Sunday.  I just discovered that I never posted this card
so I thought I would do it today.

It is so very hot here today almost 90 degrees and it has been
like that for a couple of weeks now, hardly cooling down at night.



This wonderful elephant stamp by Colorado Crafts is one of their stamps from their 
big ones line.  Isn't he gorgeous.  I colored with different shades of gray and
put a drop of glossy accents on the eye.  Paper is an old sheet I have been hanging
on to for so long............
The sentiment is from the stamp set, and so is the inside sentiment which
says......TONS. in big about 1 1/2 inch letters.

That's it for me today.  Off now to write up Tomorrows post for my local 
stamp store.

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

BSS IDEA - Birthday Cake


WELCOME TO THE BUFFALO STAMPS AND STUFF IDEA

For all of you that love the heat.............this has been
a HOT couple of weeks.  Thanks goodness for air conditioning.

This week's card






Cake Die - My Favorite Things/Die-namics,  Happy Birthday Centerpieces (MFT-942)

I had fun with this die.
I cut it out 7 times, first with white card stock that i had run through a lined embossing folder. Secondly, with the different colored dotted card stock and the 
silver glitter paper.
Then I just removed the white pieces and filled in the cake with
the dotted and sivler cutouts.  Lots of pieces  left over so you could
make more of them if you wanted.
Then I simply mounted it on a green piece of the dotted paper and
onto a sunny yellow card 4 1/4 x 51/2.

Would be a fun card with the saying "A birthday without cake is just a meeting"
on the inside.

Hope everyone is well and staying safe, and cool.

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

BSS IDEA - FOR THE BIRDS


Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Idea.

WHEW - has it been HOT or what!!  No in a long time
can I remember temperatures in the 90's for so many 
days in a row.  Having to stay at home most of the time
I was so excited when the weather got nice so we could
at least enjoy working in the yard and sitting on our patio.
Now we are hibernating in the air conditioning!!

This weeks card


Stamp - Large Birdhouse Set - Art Impressions (5261-WC)
The set includes two birdhouses and three birds.
This stamp is one of their water color series, but I colored
with water based markers 
I added the ground and grass and the flowers and greenery
around the birdhouse base.
The purple background paper is Cuddlebug Designs
I used a 1/4 x 51/2 inch white card stock base.

Stay Cool and Stay Safe!

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