Time for the Stamp Review Crew to put another great stamp set in the spotlight!  Today’s blog hop is featuring the amazing Buffalo Check background stamp.  Buffalo Plaid is very trendy and yet timeless.  It can be found all over fashion and home decor.  With this stamp, your card making can be on top of one of the hottest trends too!  It is great for any occasion and can be the star of the show, or a great supporting role.

Let’s start with featuring Buffalo Check in a supporting role.

Buffalo Check Wishing You Well - Center Stage Stamping

Stamped in Crumb Cake ink on Whisper White card stock, Buffalo Check makes a great base for this bouquet from the Wishing You Well set.  The layers and ribbon look black in the photo, but it is actually Night of Navy. The flowers and heart are Lovely Lipstick.  I love the little corrugated tag!

The next card puts Buffalo Check in the leading role.

Have a cup of Cheer - Center Stage Stamping

Stamped in black ink on Real Red card stock, you get the iconic buffalo plaid.  I used the tiny cup from the Coffee Cups framelits and layered it on a white Stitched Shapes circle.  I hand wrote the sentiment to get just what I wanted and to fit the space.  The ’tis the season repeated on the right is from Itty Bitty Greetings.  Final touches are a few pine sprigs from the Pretty Pines Thinlits and tree from the Festive Farmhouse Elements.  I used the backside of the tree and colored it with my Garden Green Stampin’ Write marker.

One last card.  I know I have shared it before, but it showcases this stamp so well.

Buffalo Check Christmas - Center Stage Stamping

I think this is one of my favorite Christmas cards I have made this year.  I love Buffalo Check paired with the log patten from the Wood Textures designer series paper stack.  (I don’t know why the tiny bit got blurred out in the photo.  must have blended with my backdrop too much.)

If you are #madforbuffaloplaid like me, this stamp is a must have.  Check out the rest of the stops on the blog hop for more amazing Buffalo Check inspiration!  You can go back to the wonderfully talented Nikki or move on to the uber creative Stesha.  Enjoy the rest of the hop and join me again to put a spotlight on creativity.

  1. The pop of red and black with the Crumb Cake card is just gorgeous, Mary! And Your Christmas cards are so sweet…..it looks like Buffalo Check was just made for Christmas!

  2. Fabulous cards, Mary! The positioning of the plaid on the first card is perfect. It has such a country feel. However, the tiny cup on the second card stole my heart. It’s adorable!
