More Card Ideas with Buffalo Check and Painted Harvest Stamp Set


I have been playing with the Buffalo Check background stamp again! It seems to work well with the Painted Harvest Stamp Set! The color here is Rich Razzleberry. To make the flower I stamped off on scratch paper first with the Rich Razzleberry Stampin’Pad to get a pale image and then stamped the second image on top of the first without stamping off. Hope that makes sense! I had to fussy cut the flower with paper snips. There are no cutting dies with this set.


I stamped and punched out the leaves with the Leaf Punch. But also stamped the other leaves that come in the set directly on the Whisper White cardstock.


I added Soft Suede cardstock behind the Whisper White panel. Also the center of the flower is stamped with Soft Suede Stampin’Pad.

These are two of my favorite stamp sets from Stampin’Up!. Of course there are many ideas with both stamp sets. I have more to show you with both of these sets just by changing the layout and colors, so stay tuned.

I hope you enjoy my card and it inspires you to CREATE!

Using the Buffalo Check Background Stamp and StampinUp! News


Here is another idea using this wonderful background stamp! This is the new background stamp called Buffalo Check from the new 2018 Holiday Catalog by Stampin’Up! I stamped the image on Real Red cardstock using the Memento Black Stamp Pad. The stamped panel is then layered on Thick Whisper White cardstock.


Isn’t the reindeer cute! This is an image from the Cookie Cutter Christmas photopolymer stamp set which is in the Annual Catalog.  I simply stamped the image on Crumb Cake cardstock using the Memento Black Stamp Pad. I colored the antlers with the Crumb Cake Light Stampin’Blend Alcohol Marker. I used the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch to cut the image out.

I hope you like my project and it inspires you to CREATE!

Buffalo Check Background and Cat Punch


It is sweltering hot and humid today in Minnesota! But I know I shouldn’t complain, at least we don’t have hurricanes here. It just seems like we get everything else though! Anyway, too hot to be outside, so it is perfect day to be inside in the air conditioning PAPERCRAFTING!

Here is what I made today! I wanted to show you more samples with the Buffalo Check Background Stamp. I made a halloween card and treat holder.  I used the Cat Punch as the focal point.


I stamped happy halloween on a crumb cake piece of cardstock and added a pearl to the corner which I colored with a black sharpie.


I punched out the cat with the Cat Punch and mounted on a circle of Crushed Curry cardstock.


Here is the treat holder. Again using the punched out cat as the focal point! Don’t you just love the Buffalo Check Background stamp?


This treat holder is so easy to make. Just cut to fit the width of your cello bag. Stampin’Up! does have 3 x 6 gusseted bags in the catalog. This particular bag is a flat bag. But the gusseted ones you can really make some cute treat holders that are 3-D.  I am out of the gusseted bags right now so I will show you one by Kathy Maurer a fellow Stampin’Up! Demonstrator.

Halloween Treat Bag made with Stampin' Up!'s Spooky Cat Stamp Set and Cat Punch. For details, go to my Wednesday, September 20, 2017 blog at http://www.stampinup.net/blog/2130686/entry/spooky_cat_treat_bag

Isn’t Kathy’s treat holder just darling!  I made a bunch of these last year for Halloween, which is why I am out of the gusseted bags. It is time to reorder these, they are so much fun to work with and I like the fact that they will stand alone.


I hope you all like my projects! I sure enjoyed making them. Supplies will be listed below. Be sure to take time to CREATE! It is good for you!

Buffalo Check Background Stamp meets Painted Harvest Stamp Set


This is a quick and easy card, other than fussy cutting the flower! I love background stamps! They add so much to a card. I just stamped the Buffalo Check background stamp with Cajun Craze Stampin’Pad on Cajun Craze cardstock.


I also used the new Corrungated Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to make the Crumb Cake cardstock panel. The flower was stamped with So Saffron Stampin’Pad first and then the second stamp to the flower was stamped with Cajun Craze Stampin’Pad, the center was stamped with Soft Suede Stampin’Pad. The leaves were stamped with Old Olive Stampin’Pad and then punched out with the Leaf Punch.


I always add a piece of white or vanilla cardstock to the inside of cards that are made with dark cardsock. You can’t see the inside panel very well due to the shadow but I stamped  a little acorn from the Painted Harvest Stamp set in the bottom left corner and stamped a greeting from the stamp set on the inside.

I hope you enjoy my card and it inspires you to CREATE! I plan to work more with this new background stamp so stay tuned.
