Tuesday Newbies

An early post this week. Summer appears to be over and cooler weather is moving in. We're moving out our summer stamps and moving fall to the forefront. Fall is my favorite season. I love the colors of the season. It's great  inspiration for wonderful card making and paper crafting. Here are some new products and some inspiration for you. 

We just got in this awesome new Pion paper. So fun for Halloween and a new color pallete for them. 


A Janelle creation using Right at Home stamps

I love Lawn Fawn! Here are a few stamp sets and dies we've had for awhile but we also have some new card samples for you. First up, "Sprinkled with Joy". 

A pop up die and examples of the cards you can make. 

More slider fun. Trees on the roof of a car is a recurring theme with several stamp and die companies this fall. 

Classic House Mouse and a box card, great for those a Taylored a Expressions mini's!

Love this fox!

Lastly this is our sample for the Altered Book class for Friday. Give the store a call and sign up soon! 

And a little decoration for you!
See you next week!

BSS MONDAY IDEA - PUPPY LOVE

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff  Idea.

Fall is definitely in the air.  And, I am loving it.

I bought this wonderful Christmas puppy stamp a few weeks ago.

Four years ago, we got a new puppy, after losing our beautiful dog
who was 13 1/2 years old.  We drove for six hours one way to pick her
out, and six hours home.  We did this because we had the pick of the litter.
Two weeks later, we drove back again to pick her up.

There is absolutely nothing like puppy breath and cuddling a furbaby.
So, when I saw this stamp, it reminded me of her and I wanted to color
it up to look like her at 8 weeks old.



Stamps - Stampendous - Patient Pup (W174)
Holly Sprig - Stampendous Cling Winter Tweets (CRS5092)
Inside Sentiment - Impression Obsession  (D8500)
Paper - White, Red Card Stock, Candy Striped Designer Paper
Gold Mirror Paper
Candy Cane Stickles
Colored with Copics

 Here she is just after bringing her home.



The stamp is just so sweet, who wouldn't love to
get a Christmas card with a darling puppy with a Santa Hat on?
And, you can color it up any color you want.

Thanks for stopping by today.
 Have a great week.

As  wandered through the store this morning the thing that caught my eye was our new selection of embellishments from Little B. First up, Christmas, 

These would be great for scrapbook pages, planners, school pages and casual cards. 

Boo! Great Halloween 3-D embellishments!

BSS MONDAY IDEA - HOW MANY DAYS...........

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

I saw a post the other day on Facebook with the days before Halloween, 
Thanksgiving, and Christmas listed.

So, I thought I should at least get going on a few Halloween cards
for my little friends I send cards to.

I bought this image at Sharon's booth at the Stamp Show recently.
My Granddaughter went away to college this month, and she misses
her kitty (an all black cat with yellow eyes), and her kitty misses her.
So I thought this sweet stamp was perfect.




Stamps - Wild Rose Studio - Halloween Cat (C1491)
Love you to the Moon and Bat - Hero Arts
Paper - Pearl Purple, black, white and orange dotted card stock.
Card is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches with a white mat and a purple mat.
I used a small star hand held punch and punched some stars 
and small holes into the purple paper before adhering it
to the white card stock mat.
Bat and witches hat on inside are a Mega Marvey punch
Inside word die is Tim Holtz, Sizzix
A punched circle is sponged with a light yellow then a deeper 
yellow ink leaving the center white, for the moon.
Cat is colored with Copics, then fussy cut out.
Various stickles used.
Self stick star gems

So, how many more days until Halloween, 43
Thanksgiving 67, Christmas 98.

Thanks for stopping by today.
  Have a great week,

BSS IDEA - QUIRKY SNOWMAN ORMAMENT

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Idea.

Finally, some relief from the oppressive humidity that we have had
for what seems like forever.  Was nice to open windows and actually
sit outside yesterday.  And  the plants in our yard  soaked up the
needed rain like sponges. 

I LOVE Woodware stamps.  And when I saw this quirky
 snowman ornament, just had to have it and could not wait to color it up and
make a card.  So many new Christmas and Fall stamps in the store
right now!!!

Card is a 4 1/4x5 1/2 inch white card stock card base
Stamps - Woodware-Large Snowman Bauble (FRS024)
Inside Sentiment - docrafts - Magical Christmas (PMA907935) 
Paper - My Mind's Eye - Comfort and Joy 12x12 Paper pack
Die - Impression Obsession - Pine Bough (DIE021-N)

I fussy cute the ornament out, ran a black marker around the edge.
Ran the red twine through the hanger on the stamp, and
tied it to the popped up pine bough, then made a bow.

Would make a cute tag too!!!

Thanks for stopping by today. 
 Have a great week.
