DOdesigner Shelley: Autumn Days Card and Composition Book

Before I share today's project, I want to tell you a little bit about Shelley. She's what I call a Stampin' Up! Preferred Buyer.  What's that?  Well, basically that is what most people refer to as a Hobby Demonstrator...but who wants to be called that?  Preferred Buyer makes you sound like someone special and she is (as is all of the Preferred Buyers on my DOstamperSTARS team).

What makes Shelly even more special is her charming personality and the permanant SMILE she has on her face.  She is such a happy, delightful person.  I'm so pleased that Shelley joined my group last year. She makes me happy everytime she walks into the room.  PLUS...yes, there's more...she's an awesome cook!  She brings the most wonderful desserts to our meetings. 

Well...on to her fabulous 3-D project with matching card.  She picked the AUTUMN COLLECTION and used the Autumn Days stamp set.  I just LOVE this composition book that she made.  Didn't she do a fabulous job?!

Look at the detail on the Pheasant - isn't that beautiful?

Great job Shelley - thank you so much for sharing!

Very Thankful: Peacock & Quick Tip Video

Each year Stampin' Up! designs an exclusive stamp set to raise money for the Ronald McDonald House Charites (RMHC).  This year's stamp set is called Very Thankful (#115338, $14.95) and comes with 4 images.  They've done a great job creating a versatile stamp set.  Plus with every set sold, Stampin' Up! donates $2 to the RMHC (read more about it here)!

Very-Thankful

Last month I held a Very Thankful Stamp-a-Stack event featuring the Very Thankful stamp set.  Each person received their very own set.  Plus, they stamped 3 of 4 cards... one design for each of the images.  They kept 8 cards and donated 4 cards to the RMHC!  It was a really fun camp.  A few people purchased my "to go" kit option and I wanted to share with them a quick and easy technique used on the Peacock card.

Peacock

PeacockCU 

First off...I have to say, I totally cased the the color and layout of the Peacock card.  Though - I wasn't sure how they created the Peacock coloring, so I just winged it and used a quick sponging technique to create the mutilcolored look on the peacock.  Plus, I added Dazzling Diamonds Glitter...just because I thought it needed it - LOL!

So here's a DOstamping Quick Tips Video for the Easy Multicolored Peacock.  (It's my first video, so be kind!)


So...what did you think?

Supplies:  Very Thankful, Basic Gray, Sage Shadow, Whisper White, Nouveau Chic Designer Series Paper, Sage Shadow & Basic Gray Ink, Sponge Dauber, 2-way Glue Pen, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Sage Shadow 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals

Enjoy~Dawn O

DOdesigner Jan: From the Crypt Coffin & Card

Last month a few of my DOstamperSTARS did a 3-D Project exchange.  Boy - there were some awesome projects.  I really have talented crafters on my team!

Today I'm sharing Jan's project (which also matched her swap exchange card) - clever girl!  The theme for our swap was Stampin' Up! Collections.  Have you noticed several collections in the current Stampin' Up! catalog?  I love these collections!  Jan selected the HALLOWEEN COLLECTION and used From the Crypt for her projects below.

From-the-Crypt-Group

Skull-Card
Coffin

I believed she used a blender pen with Whisper White Craft Ink to color in the skulls - love it!  This is her "small" coffin.  She's sharing both the large and small coffin patterns on her new blog here:  Stampin With Jan - Coffin Templates 

Jan has really grown this past year as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  I really appreciate her taking on more of a leader position with our group.  At our DOstamperSTARS meeting last week, she demonstrated a cool BLING effect that I videotaped for our DOstamperSTARS video blog.  She always volunteers to help - which I sooo appreciate!  Thanks for all you do Jan!

ENJOY~Dawn O

DOdesign: Laurie's Twick or Tweet Fuzzy Card

Here's a darling fuzzy bird card that my friend and downline Laurie sent me.  Ain't it cute!  She used Stampin' Up!'s Twick or Tweet stamp set from the Holiday Mini catalog.  Laurie's kind of the "NUT" of our group - so this is a perfect image for her!!

TweetBird

If you're interested in seeing how she made the "fuzzy"...she has a short "how to" on her blog (which is great!).  Check it out here.  Thanks for sharing Laurie!

Enjoy~Dawn O
