Shaping UP!

Not me, definitely not me... Spring IS shaping up! We are shaping up here at BSS along with it. I think we've finally gotten rid of the snow, hail, 30 degree temps and all those hanger-ons from winter. At least I hope so :-) Anyway, we are forging full speed ahead for a fun and colorful spring and summer. We have a great line-up of classes coming up utilizing new product from almost all our favorite companies. Just to give you a little taste...

     A NEW Travel Journal class using Photo Play papers...

     At least 2 - probably 3 new Penny Black classes...

     A NEW Fairy class with Lavinia Stamps...

     A NEW watercolor class using Impression Obsession...

     A NEW Stamping Bella class...

     A NEW Alexandra Renke card class using her latest papers...

     Guest Artist Debby Shuh with TWO unique album/journal offerings...

     and more!

It's going to be a busy spring and summer! Check our website at Buffalo Stamps and Stuff for descriptions, dates and photos. We will be posting ALL info and photos as soon as they are available.

New product...Newton's Nook. They make really cute stamps, many animal based. They have a farm yard set out the we have already sold out of and have more on order. The phrases in it are too fun, but you'll have to wait til we get the stamp set back in the store. In the meantime, here are some samples and photos of their other new sets.

Stamping Bella is next up with some new, slightly different but very colorable stamps.

Next up are some samples from Penny Black. Look for these to be part of the PB classes we have coming up. 

New Sizzix

I'll have photos of the new Alexandra Renke papers next week. They are just delightful. Until then, happy crafting!

BSS IDEA - Foiling, Butterflies and Flowers

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Idea.

This weeks idea, involves flowers and butterflies.  You know what
they say about April showers......looking forward to sun and flowers!!

I made this card using a sheet of black paper that was foiled by Sharon
using  Deco foiling products.  For more information on the how to's
and what supplies you need to achieve these beautiful foil backgrounds
stop in the store and ask Sharon all about the process.

Sparkle and shine are so hard to photograph and I have a photo box.  This card
is in the store now and it is so much prettier in person, so check it out when you are there.

Stamp - Northwoods (No-041)
Die - Spellbinders
Paper - White, blue and silver mirror card stock
Foiled sheet
Colored with Copics

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


The Colors of Spring!

Yeah, I know, I'm always telling you my favorite season is fall, true - BUT...I love the colors of spring especially after a Buffalo winter. We haven't quite gotten to the springy floral part of spring yet but we have in terms of the colors we are seeing in the new product and supplies that are coming in. I also found an interesting photo I'll share at the end of this post.

If you haven't heard we have the new Wendy Vecchi Make Art STAY-tion in! Sharon ordered 30, we have several special orders and we've had a steady stream of people who want it. If you are one of them, get it while you can! Once our initial order is gone it may take a while to get it back in - just a gentle warning. Also new is the latest release from My Favorite Things. They have a really cute set of animals taking selfies. If you are on Pinterest, search MFT and you will see samples. They also have a really cute treat bag topper that is a great multi-use occasion die. You can decorate the topper with your favorite stamps, dies and embellishments, fill a glassine (or other) bag, adhere and you have a great treat gift. The new release will be in the store soon, if not this week.

Now, on to what I have for new product photos. Janelle's son, Judah, helped me put these Whipper Snapper stamps out on Saturday. He's a great helper!

We have a great new selection of Impression Obsession (IO) dies in.

How cute are these little guys!

For a little inspiration, we have several cards made with new releases from MFT and IO.

Lastly, who said you could only color eggs?
Keep on crafting and have a great week!


Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Idea.

Wasn't it nice to see the Sun?  Even the dog stayed out in the yard 
longer to investigate what winter has left behind.

We installed a new kitchen floor last week and finally got the new
baseboard up and put everything back in place.  Looks great, but
these two old people now know it is the last floor we will be doing
ourselves!  And of course, in the middle of doing that, the sump pump
quit and we had to install a new one, never fails folks!!!

Today's card is a stamp from a  sweet new Penny Black clear set.

Stamp - Penny Black -Space Reserved (30-535) Clear Set
Grass die and Frame die - Gina Marie Designs. Branch die-Spellbinders
Tiny Blossoms on tree are from a hand punch.  Pink Stickles on blossoms.

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


Kits to Go...and more!

Kits To Go and More!

We're trying something new. We are often asked if we have kits for the classes we run. Many times it depends on wether the instructor has extra kits and more importantly if it is a class that can be done independently from our store setting. Many times there are parts of the class that require a certain die, stamp or technique that you get from taking the class. Those classes are harder to provide stand-alone kits for. That said, we do have several classes each month that can be done with the basics provided in the class kit. We have decided to take these classes and provide a limited number of class kits for purchase.

Each month if there are classes that we can easily create kits that can be done with basic instructions, we will offer class kits for sale. There will be a limited number of these kits available. There will be a "Kits to Go Available" sign on each class sample we have kits for. The cost of the kits will be the same as if you attended the class. We will provide a basic instruction sheet at the time you purchase the kit or you will be sent instructions via e-mail.  Kits will be payable by Cash or Check Only. You will be able to call and reserve a kit and we will hold it for you, but not indefinitely.

Look for a display behind the register for the classes that are available and if you see something you like, welcome to Buffalo Stamps and Stuff - To Go!

A few new products this week and some inspiration from new products. First up is new Altenew products. Altenew makes doing their layered stamp technique easier by using their coordinated ink cubes.

Many Altenew stamps are also a great product for watercoloring. To help you achieve the similar results to those you see in their samples and videos, we have their Watercolor Brush Markers in stock.

More product photos. New florals, great for coloring from Impression Obsession.

We have a Stamping Bella class coming up with these little floral topped cuties.

Gnomes are not just for Christmas any more!

If we can have Oddball teens (and who doesn't). We can have Oddball animals.

What would a Thursday post be without paper! Looks like Kaiser to me.

I love Newton's Nook! Here is a little inspiration from them.

Next up is a few cards from this vibrant new collection from Graphic 45

I love, love, love this watercolor and gold embossed image created with this stamp set from Penny Black, LOVE IT!

 Adorable epoxy stickers from Doodlebug!

I have some more great inspiration for you this week. Mona is the queen of die cuts and she has gone to town with these spring and Easter dies. What fun!

Whew! That's it for this week. Come on in and check everything out! Have a great week and happy crafting!
