Another card using Buffalo Check background with the Make the Cards Challenge in mind.


I stamped the Power Poppy set So Grateful in Versafine Ink and dried it with a heat gun. I colored the image with watercolor pencils and a water brush which was very dry. This is not watercolor paper, so I didn’t want to add too much water. The buffalo check is stamped with SU Buffalo Check stamp set in SU Early Expresso ink, which matches the card base. The Kraft layer is SU Crumb Cake cardstock.

I decided to give the Make The Cards Challenge a try since the theme has Buffalo Plaid and I like plaid. I found a few other challenge with the help from Buddy Bonnie, so will add those as well.

I used older stamps and retired product on this card. It is so enjoyable to pull out older product and use it rather than it sitting. The background is stamped using Stampin’ Up Buffalo Check, the flower is from Painted Harvest, both retired from SU. The greeting is from a set called So Grateful from Power Poppy. I added a piece of ribbon, matted the focal, popped it up on foam squares and called it complete.

Autumn is my favorite season as I love the cooler weather and the colors as the leaves change. I love mums in my yard and a pumpkin on my front porch. My explanation is for the As You Like It challenge to explain which is my favorite season between Autumn and Winter. I truly do not enjoy winter. I like seeing snow the first time it happens then get very tired of the cold and dreary weather.

Autumn is often a time to be thankful to someone who has helped me. I receive a lot of help from my Buddies and an honored to call them each a friend.
