Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff  Idea.

Finally some sun after so much rain!  All the plants are popping up
in my yard, and the fish in my pond are swimming around near
the top, and not only did they all survive the winter, but we have
spotted a baby, which was probably born in late Fall.

This week's card is a simple design of a very girly bike.
All in pink with a basket of lovely flowers, who wouldn't want
to peddle around on such a pretty ride.

Stamp - Bicycle Basket (CRW180) Stampendous
Papers - White and Pink card stock
Designer paper - Lawn Fawn Winter 6x6 Stack
White card base 4 1/4 x 5 1/5 inches
Colored with Copics

Note:  I stamped the basket of flowers a second time
and colored it up and fussy cut it out.  Then just popped it up to give
the card added dimension. 

Thanks for stopping by today. 
Have a great week.

Better Late...New Stuff!

Better late than never, or so they say. My schedule was all screwed up and I completely forgot to do my entry! So I'll get right to it  These are new floral cling stamps from Prima. These would be great for practicing your Copic, watercolor or pencil coloring!

Mother's Day is coming up and we're starting to get in and pull forward our Mother's Day stamps and dies. Think of what a great card you can make using the new papers we have in from Kaiser, Fab Scraps, Alexandra Renke, BoBunny, Doodlebug...the list goes on and on!

Up for a little whimsy? These adorable Stampendous fairy stamps are great for your spring cards and projects.

Laurel Burch is back and we'll be doing a coloring class with Laurel Burch designs in our next class cycle beginning in May. These stamps remind me of coloring book colors, bright vibrant and so much fun to color.

I did say paper before so here is a peek at the new spring Doodlebug line. We also have new 3-D embellishments that coordinate with these papers right above them

Got Ink? Yes we do! We've got a good selection of Altenew mini pads in four pad packs. We made some sample cards so you can see the beautiful colors they come in. We'll be making more sample cards as we go.

The initial rush for Oxides may be over but don't count on it! I believe we have a full complement of the oxides and their refills. We are also looking to do another oxide class the next cycle.

Ranger has just released their Archival Inks in mini pads. These are a little different in that they are not the square but slightly larger rectangle pads - they'll have to make a new tin!

I don't know it you've noticed but large background dies are all the rage these days. The Taylored Expressions interlocking circles used in the Oxide class has been insanely popular and we have more on order just waiting for the postman to deliver. Look at some of the great cards you can do. MFT, Reverse Confetti, Taylored Expressions and more companies make these great dies.

I strolled past the Concord and Ninth display and thought, "Hmm, have I seen these before? Are these new?" So on the chance I haven't seen these before - here you go!

We are working on our website update for May and June that means new classes for you. We continue to get in new stock almost every day and are so looking forward to more temperate weather and warmer temperatures. Mother's Day, Father's Day and graduations are right around the corner, so stay with us and see what we've got in store, literally, for you!

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter Day.

Are you old enough to remember when children's wagons were
made of metal or wooden with slates?

Today's card is the metal version of what was popular
long ago.  Now they are all plastic and have cup holders and

This wonderful image is using the wagon in the garden.

Good Friday

I was MIA for a week but I'm back with a short post and a few new things. Sharon is away this weekend celebrating Easter with her granddaughter and family so the rest of us are loose to rule the roost!

First up, TODAY ONLY! there is a coupon in the email featuring a sale on the Misti and it's supplies, check it out! If you haven't signed up for e-mails - DO IT, SOON! You are missing out on what's new along with coupon and sale offers. We are open until 8 pm tonight, Friday. We post emails about twice a week.

Next, there was an error in the photo of one of our classes for tomorrow and I have a new picture for the other. The interactive card class has three cards by Mona and each has a different pull, pop-up or cut out.

The Space Boys class has three adorable cards by Debbie. Here is the latest photo,
It's so hard to find boy card designs so this really a great class for those of you with little boys. The class is tomorrow Saturday, April 15, so you need to call now to sign up.

We also have all Easter stamps, dies and embellishments on sale for 40% off through Saturday, April15. This sale does NOT include paper. Here is our Darcie's display to show you some Easter fun.

The boxes came in as I was leaving so I don't have much else new but I know we got in some Taylored Expressions graduation stamps and dies; it's coming up soon! Some Authentique - I wish I could have seen into that box. I love their papers and a big box from Ranger, more oxide inks?!?

I'm not sure if posted yet but we have new Altenew,

That's about it. On behalf of everyone here at Buffalo Stamps and Stuff I want to wish you all a Happy Passover and a Happy Easter. We hope all our customers near and far have an enjoyable and blessed holiday weekend.

BSS IDEA - Stamping on Black Card Stock

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff  Monday Idea.

This weeks idea was to color a stamped image on black card stock.

Stamp - Stampendous - Hummingbird Blossom (LBCR003)
Stamped with white Brilliance Pad, and heat set.
Colored with Prisma Color Pencils
Went back over some areas with a white Gel Pen
Yellow Stickles and White Liquid Pearls on flower center
Used a Cuttlebug embossing dot folder to emboss the front
of the card.
The purple mat is cut from a Grand die by Spellbinders
and embossed with a Cuttlebug Anna Griffin EF.

For the inside I used the same stamp stamped in white and
the sentiment.

Try coloring on a dark card stock for a different effect.

Thanks for stopping by today.
  Have a great week

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamp and Stuff Monday Idea.

This week, I made a really cute note card set from the Tim Holtz,
Stampers Anonymous Hipsters Stamp Set (CM5288)

These quirky stamps were fun to color up.  I just matted them with
a coordinating color card stock, popped them up onto
 various embossed backgrounds on
a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 note card.  Would make a great gift.  Also came with
some quirky words, but I left the inside blank.

I colored with copics.

These are fun images, and would be great for teens too.

Thanks for stopping by today.
  Have a great week.

Friday From Now On

Hi! Donna here with my weekly blog post of what's new at Buffalo Stamps and Stuff. It's official, I'm switching over to Fridays for my blog from now on. I've got lots of cool new stuff so lets get right to it.

NEW! - From Memory Box these sea and beach themed dies. Get ready for summer or spring break photos and cards.

NEW! - From KaiserCraft - I've decided butterflies are the 'insect of the year'. Each year it seems the stamp and paper companies decide to feature one insect or animal. No clue if these companies get together and say "Let's do caterpillars this summer!" but it seems many of the companies choose the same animal or insect. This year I'm seeing a lot of butterflies. Here is Kaiser's new release and MFT isn't far behind (you'll see soon) in featuring butterflies this summer.

NEW! - Blue Fern laser chipboard elements. Sharon is featuring a bunny in her layout of the month. Love using these on my scrapbook pages.

NEW! - Our latest european import, Alexandra Renke! This is the endcap display of the dies we still have left. These dies started flying out of the store before we even had prices on them and put them out! I posted a photo of their papers earlier and they are beautiful!

Alison made several cards (she LOVES this line!)

NEW! Multiple card kit from Reddy. Sharon used one of these as a basis for her vintage Easter card class. We have one open on the front counter for you to check out. In this kit you receive EVERYTHING to make four cards, four treat boxes and MORE - including envelopes! All you need is the adhesive!

This just tickles my funny bone. Taylored Expressions has a series of stamps called Grumplings. There are Birthday Grumplings and other collections too. This is the Exercise Grumplings. I loved the card and wanted to share! (notice they used TE's doughnut mini die!)

 NEW! Altenew is in! We have several new sets along with restocking favorites.

NEW! Cheery Lynn has new packaging and new dies! Love, love, love the card below done by Dimitra.

If anyone out there is crazy like me you are following April the giraffe who is very patiently awaiting the birth of her calf. Right now she's a MONTH past the date her handlers thought she'd have her baby! Thousands have been following her live camera feed from Animal Adventures Park outside Binghamton, NY and I'm one of them! She inspired me to get this set from W+9.
Me and many others think this is the weekend. It looks like April will be having an April Fools Baby! Keep your fingers crossed and I'll see you next week. Happy Crafting!
