I may be a little bit late to the Buffalo Check party, but I’ll be making up for lost time for sure! As soon as I saw the Buffalo Check background stamp in the 2018 Holiday Catalog, I knew I had to have it! But since I was pacing my budget with the trip to Orlando, FL for OnStage, I didn’t get it right away. My order arrived a few days before Thanksgiving but today was the first day I could actually ink that stamp up and use it. This is the first card I made with it:
I used Black Momento ink on Whisper White cardstock to stamp the Buffalo Check image. If you subscribe to my mailing list, you’ll be able to download my free report ““The 8 Essential Tools Every Paper Crafter MUST have to be Successful” . #2 is a clear flexible ruler. I used this ruler and my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write marker to draw lines between the checks to create more of a ‘plaid’ than Buffalo Check. I really love the way it turned out.
I used the Country Home stamp set to stamp the milk can and colored it using the Basic Gray Stampin’ Blends markers. I added hi-lights with the Stampin’ Blends Color Lifter. (You can get this FREE from me; see below.) Then I cropped some pine needles from Old Olive cardstock, a berry spring in gold foil sheets, and leaves in Vellum. I stamped the candy canes in Cherry Cobbler ink and fussy cut them out. I stamped the sentiment from the Winter Woods stamp set onto a scrap of Whisper White and fussy cut that out as well.
Every where I look, I see Buffalo Check patterns, from clothing to housewares, to Christmas decor. It’s so on trend. I love that Stampin’ Up! offers us products that are so trendy. I stamped several pieces of cardstock, in different colors, so I plan on making lots of cards with Buffalo Check backgrounds! Follow my Facebook page to see them all.
