BSS IDEA - HE SEES YOU WHEN YOU'RE SLEEPING

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Idea.

Are you freaking out a little wondering how you are going
to get everything done in time for Christmas?
Me too.  Don't you wish the pilgrims would have
had Thanksgiving in October so the two holidays
didn't come so close together?

I am full swing in the Christmas Card mode.
Here is this weeks card, featuring a wonderful little
image of Santa and one of his reindeer peeking in the window.





Stamp - Art Impressions - UMM3185 
Windows to theWorld Series
Dog Stamp is Penny Black - Dog Gone Sweet 40-391
I hand cut the curtain shape and used a Martha Stewart punch
for the valance. 
Cuttlebug Swiss Dot Embossing Folder
Sentiment on the front is computer generated.

Good luck with your Christmas shopping, card making, wrapping,
cleaning, decorating, baking and getting enough sleep!!!

Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a great week.

Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas, Thursday!

Thanksgiving down, Christmas is up! It was a busy morning so I only have a few photos for Christmas ideas. 
 
We still have a cute selection of Memory Box dies designed to make felt ornaments. These work beautifully with our wool felt and make a great personalized gift or a project you can do with children.

 
A restock of Nuvo glitters and enamels.

 
One of Jennifer McGuire's crafty things for 2016. Spellbinders magnetic pick-up tool. This works great for picking up stray metallic dies. It also looks great on your craft table!

 
Arches watercolor paper, great for your Zig Clean Color Markers!

 
Altenew mini pads. Great for Altenew or any layered stamp sets!

 
Holiday papers in an alternate color scheme! 

 
We've carried over several of our Black Friday sales and our Small Business Saturday sales. 

Check out our great classes for this weekend and next week and don't forget to pick up your raffle basket tickets when you're in. We hope to have the details for our Christmas family this weekend - we'll keep you posted! 

Gotta go back to work tonight so that's all I've got for now. See you next week!

BSS IDEA -SANTA GETS FRAMED

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Idea.

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving with friends and family. 

Did you go out into the Christmas Shopping madness?  I did not.  I used to
get up to get to the stores for certain toys and games, but those days are
over.  I did run out later at night on Friday to get a new game for
Christmas Eve, but by then the crowds were over and I just zipped in
and out quickly.

Well, in the spirit of the upcoming visit by the man in red here is
this weeks offering.

Close up of stamped image.





Stamp - Santas Pick up - Stampendous (CRR274)
Paper - Gold Mirror Paper
Snowflake Dies - Penny Black
Red Pearls - Kaiser
Cuttlebug Snowflake Embossing folder
Sponger Snowbanks
Colored with Copics
Stardust Stickles
Liquid Pearls-White

Cut a piece of the mirror card stock to fit
the front of your card.  Center a die that is big enough
for your image on the mirror card stock and cut.
Place the frame you created in the embossing folder
and run it through.  Adhere your stamped image
so it is centered in the frame.  Adhere the framed
image to the front of your card.

Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a great week

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Idea.

Each Monday, we try to spark your creative juices with a new idea, 
technique, or product.

I saw this card a week ago, and knew I had to have a go at it.
If you love cards that have movement, you are going to love this one.

The link to this card tutorial on youtube is:

This gal, Rina, takes you slowly through each step, AND
you won't believe how easy this card is to make.

If you love decorating cards, you are going to love this one.





Stamp Set - My Favorite Things -Polar Bear Pals ((BB40)
Snowflake Print Paper - My Mind's Eye-Cozy Wishes
Dark Red Card stock - Coordinations
White Glitter paper
Red Gingham Paper
Large Snowflake die inside - Poppystamps - Laurette Snowflake 1592
Colored with Copics
Stickles - Star Dust
WOW  embossing powder- white sparkly

Give this card a go, you will be surprised how easy it is to put together.
Hint:  There are three main pieces to the card, The base card, the
folding mechanism, and the panel.  Make up your panel with all the
layers and images before attaching to the mechanism.  Harder to decorate
if you attach the panel then try to decorate.

Thanks for stopping by today.
 Have a great week.
