Do MORE with Buffalo Check


From Woodsman to Sweet Baby, BUFFALO CHECK background stamp #147797 has you covered!


The Stamparatus Positioning Tools lets you print perfect checks. If you don't have that tool yet, this is my preferred printing method for large background stamps: lay the stamp rubber UP, ink up the stamp well, lay cardstock on top. Place a large piece of scrap paper on top and RUB thoroughly with your hand both horizontally and verically. You see my scrap paper on the right. Lift the cardstock straight up.


The dark colored cardstock does not grab the ink as well as Whisper White and Very Vanilla. But this looks like FANNEL to me, perfect for masculine, outdoorsy cards! Black ink on Soft Suede Cardstock. Black ink on Cherry Cobbler Cardstock.


The soft colors on Whisper White are Balmy Blue, Powder Pink and Sea Form. They remind me of Spring, Easter and BABIES!


Crisp, bright Mango Melody and Real Red look like PICNICS and summer!


CHANGE your check to a PLAID!! Simply draw consistent straight lines - SO EASY. I love BLENDS for this because the color goes on even. Start your lines OFF the edge of the cardstock. This is Cajun Craze ink on Whisper White Cardstock with Old Olive and Daffodil Blends. Definitely AUTUMN!


Just check out the variety and VERSATILITY of Buffalo Check!! You MUST add this multi-occasion stamp from the Holiday Catalog to your collection!


Thanks. Ordering this TODAY. I adore plaids and was just wishing SU would offer more. Now I can make my own. You’re the best.

I stamped black on Poppy Parade and drew lines with Gold Metallic Sharpie. Nice Christmas look.

Vicki, thanks for viewing. Hope I inspired you!

Joanne, the BRIGHTS checks look like picnic table clothes!! Thanks for clicking by!

Love this thanks for sharing.

now I know why I could not get a bright, sharp color on red card stock - thanks for lots of tips

IT's SOO easy! Glad you are trying it. Any old straight edge works fine.

I'll have to dig out my old ruler!
Thank you!
