2009/10 Idea Book & Catalog

Holly and Jolly Rub-on's: Christmas Trees

Here's the last of my Holly and Jolly Rub-on's, that uses the Holiday Tree images.  I've paired it again with the Jolly Holiday Designer Series Paper and the wonderfully soft Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon (from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog)!

Stand by for tomorrow for the adorable Stationary Pack I made to hold all four Holly and Jolly cards/envelopes!

Trees 

Cherry Cobbler is swiftly turning into one of favorite new colors (of which there are six)!  It's such a beautiful deep rich red hue.  If you haven't got your Cherry Cobbler Classic ink yet - I highly recommend getting it in the New Color Retrofit Kit.  Check out the details below:

Dawn's Birthday Celebration: Concord Crush meets Because I Care with Vellum Dry Embossing Technique

Welcome to Dawn's Birthday Celebration

This week I'm sharing some of my favorite things from the 2010-2011 Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog.

Dawns Favorites:
Because I Care
Stamp Set (Level One Hostess Stamp Set)
Stylus (#100663)
Vellum Cardstock (#101858)
5/8" Organza Ribbon (#114319) 

Dawns Card:
...is a card I made at a shoebox swap I attended at the end of June.  The card designer was Lisa Petricka (a fellow demonstrator).  I instantly fell in love with her card and have been using it at several events this summer, where my customers have fallen in love with it too! It's a simple, fast card that has a WOW vellum technique feature!

Vellum-Hydrangea 
Dawns Stamping Tips - Dry Embossing Vellum:
1.  Stamp onto vellum and let dry
2.  Turn vellum over
3.  Use end of Stylus to rub over areas of your stamped image, either by tracing the image outline or rubbing on areas of "white space".  (which was what was done on this card)
4.  Watch rubbed areas "turn" white.
5.  Turn back over and attach to your project

Uncle Sam Punch Art

Are you interested in Punch Art?  If so...I've got a treat for you today!  First off...here's a fun Patriotic Theme Card for you...Uncle Sam, using Stampin' Up! punches!

Uncle Sam Punch Art card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup

He was one of four cards we made at my Getting Punchy Summer Stamp Camp last week.  Other cards included Tinkerbell, Monkey Tiki Hut & Japanese Doll. 

The mustard panel is stamped using the new Red, White & Blue Jumbo wheel from the 2010 Stampin' Up! Summer Mini Catalog.  I love the look of the Real Red ink on the Mustard...gives it an "old" look.

See below for the "recipe" card for the punches we used to make Uncle Sam.   (NOTE:  The Small Star punch is a retired punch)

June Wicked Challenges for Splitcoaststampers

I received a message from my friend Jana Emmert a few months ago and the subject line read, "Do You Feel Wicked?"  I said, "Huh?"  But when I read it, to my delight, she invited me to host Splitcoaststampers June's Wicked Challenges on their demo forum.

Not a demonstrator?  That's OK.  Feel free to play along and share your creations using the challenges below. 

What are Wicked Challenges?  Wonderfully Inspiring Challenges Keep Educating Demos!

Here are my challenges for June 2010:

1.  Say Goodbye to Stampin' Up! In Color Dusty Durango.  Because...I'm not sure why... but I have a lot of it!  Maybe you do too, so use it up!  (Don't have Dusty Durango? Then use Crushed Curry or Bermuda Bay.  All three In Colors will be retiring at the end of this month!).  Throw in a twist and use my color combo:  Dusty Durange, Soft Suede and So Saffron!

Cupcake


 

2.  Get your WHEELS turning!  Stampin' Around wheels that is!  Did you purchase the new Builder Wheels?  Haven't used them yet?  Is there dust build-up on your "old" wheels?  Whether new or old...dust off your wheels and take them out for a spin!

Box

NOTE:  Watch for Two Tags Box Video coming soon!
(Box inspired by fellow demonstrator Lisa Curcio)

3.  Button, Button, who's got the Button?  I fell in love with the new Bitty Buttons.  How about you?  If you have the new Bitty Buttons, use them on a card - don't hoard them.  If you don't have them, use any other Stampin' Up! button you have to add some fun and whimsy to your project!!

Flower-Pot2
 

NOTE:  Watch for Big Bold Cupcake Video Coming Soon (yes, the flower pot was made entirely from the Big Bold Cupcake Sizzix Dies!)
