BSS IDEA - 'Tis the Season


WELCOME TO THE BUFFALO STAMPS AND STUFF IDEA

Hello to everyone that didn't blow away yesterday!  How about
that wind?  Hope everyone remained safe and no power outages
or tree limbs down.


This week's card


No stamping!
This beautiful design is an embossing folder from
Crafters Companion 'Tis the Season (5x7 inches)
(GEM-EF5 3 D-TS)
I ran a pink pearl piece of cardstock (5x7 inches) through
my machine to emboss it.  Trimmed 1/4 inch from one 5 inch
side and 1/4 inch from one 7 inch side.  Mounted on a pale pink 5 x 7 inch
card base.  I colored the image before mounting it.

I used a green and white gel pen and the Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Midas Touch 
pen on the leaves and words..





For the inside of the card, I used a beautiful piece of paper from
the Prima Sugar Cookie Paper Pad.  I love that it is all pastel Christmas
paper and they are beautiful.  The jolly Santa that I used on the inside
of the card is my favorite, but they are all wonderful.
The green glitter die plate on the inside is Gina Marie Designs
The Word die is Impression Obsession (Die236N)

Thank for stopping by today.
Have a wonderful week.
Until later....

BSS IDEA -Red Pickup Truck

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff  Idea.

How about that gorgeous Sunday weather! I finally
got to get into the yard and cut back all the dead plants, dismantle my summer pots, and rake some leaves.
And all this in short sleeves in NOVEMBER!

This week's card

 
A new card design for me.  It's called a tent card.
Stamp Set - Truck Load Die Set, Stampendous (DCP1019)
includes 19 pieces, including Fall and Christmas items
to include in the truck and sentiments.
Background stamps are Impression Obsession Slim Scenes, Clouds and Large Tree-lined Hillside Duo
Designer Papers are from Graphic 45-Christmas Time Collection.
White card stock and green glitter paper.




I cute two 3 inch by 12 inch strips from the two 
designer papers in the package.
Fold in half and crease with a bone folder.
Insert the one you want to use on the inside
with glue.




You will need two die cuts,  1 for the front of 
 the image, and one for the inside.


Glue the inside die centered.  Close the card
and glue the front die, onto the front of the card
using the inside die to position it in the same place
on the front.

You can adjust the size of the card strips
to make a 41/4 x 5 1/2 inch card by cutting
the 2 strips at 3 inches x 81/2 inches.

Thanks for stopping by 
Have a great week.
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!

Many thanks to our generous sponsors for
their continued support.
