BSS IDEA - You're a Classic

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Idea

Hi friends.
Awesome weather if you love the heat!

For those of you who follow my blog,
the fish finally came out from hiding for
10 days, after the Heron was in the yard!
They are coming up to get food twice a day
but are nervous. (can't blame them)
Of the 13 fish we had, 8 remain, one being
a 12 year old that is an original from the day
we opened the pond!

This week's card

Don't forget, Father's Day is Sunday the 20th!








Stamp - Cling Classic Car - Stampendous (CRP348)
Blue, Black, Silver Mirror and white card stock.
Silver embossing powder
Word - DAD and inside sentiment is from a large
family stamp set from Kitchen Sink Stamps that I have
had for a very long time.

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

BSS IDEA - Flowers in the Garden

WELOME TO THE BUFFALO STAMPS AND STUFF IDEA.


Hello Friends.  WOW, I spent the weekend watching the 
wonderful presentations from the 3rd Maker's Mania.
So many great ideas.  AND our very own home store
Buffalo Stamps and Stuff featuring Sharon, participated
for the second year and her cards and project were awesome
and she did a fabulous job teaching us all the how to's of each
one.  Twenty store owners from across the US, Canada and the UK
participated, and it was awesome.

This week's card



Stamp -Large Mixed Florals-Slim Scenes, Impression Obsession 3259
I water colored this beautiful scene, then cut it into four equal parts
(and if you don't think it scared the heck out of me to do that, you would
be wrong!!) matted on yellow paper and glued to a blue card.

The butterflies are stickers.
And they didn't photogragh well.

Word sentiment on the inside is Spellbinders Spring Quotes STP-026

Going to be hot this week, so crank up the AC and craft!!

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

Seashells

I'm so excited about this card.

The set, including the die, stamp, and embossing folder is
from Stampin Up"  It was a pretty pricey purchase, but
it is so beautiful AND my daughter and Granddaughter
love anything to do with the beach or ocean. So it will
get plenty of use.




The outside layer is holographic silver card stock (from Michaels) and
it catches the colors in the image and from the light in the room
when you take pictures of the card.

The inside sentiment from the stamp set says "Love you to the Beach and Back.

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

Mermaid Love

Hello Friends.  I have a card today that I have been wanting to make
for awhile and just did not get around to it.  

My Dad was in the Navy and my Mom loved to dress us in 
little sailor dresses.  So, this sailor and mermaid caught my eye
because I love both of these.

I stamped it in light gray ink  because it is quite a dark stamp, then
colored it.  The mermaid is covered in star dust stickles after I
colored her to make her look wet.







This beautiful stamp is called Mermaid Love by Techniquejunkes (#698)

Card uses Kraft cardstock, turquois card stock, white cardstock, and
turquois glitter cardstock

Colored with Copics and a white gel pen.

Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a good day.
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
