Guest Stamper Sunday: Robin Anderson

It's Guest Stamper Sunday and today I'm featuring another DOstamperSTAR, from Minnesota, Robin Anderson.  

Robin joined Stampin' Up! a couple years ago and this year started doing stamp classes.  She's having a lot of success with them and has been sharing some of her class cards with our group.  She doesn't have a blog.  However, I believe she shares on Facebook.

Here's a couple cards from her most recent class...

stampin up, dostamping, dawn olchefske, demonstrator, robin anderson, jolly bingo bits, christmas

Jolly Bingo Bits (120857w or 121187c)

 

stampin up, dostamping, dawn olchefske, demonstrator, robin anderson, poinsetta, bird builder punch,, punch art, christmas

Poinsettia made with Bird Builder Punch (117191)

 

stampin up, dostamping, dawn olchefske, demonstrator, robin anderson, merry minis punch pack, punch art, christmas


How clever is this card?  She used mulitiple Silver Glimmer Paper (124005) trees to make a full tree!  The tree and star shape are from the Merry Minis Punch Pack (126882) and includes an ornament shape too. From the Holiday Catalog ending Jan 2nd.

 

stampin up, dostamping, dawn olchefske, demonstrator, robin anderson, christmas, punch art, bell

Robin's last card is a personal card she made for her fellow handbell choir members.  The bell uses oval punches.  The clever handle is from a retire set called Something Sweet.

Doesn't she do a great job?  Thank you Robin , for sharing your talent for cardmaking with us.  It makes me smile!

DOstamping Celebration Day#1: Holiday Wreath Interlocking Card & Give-a-Way

We kick off our DOstamping Celebration Day #1 with a fun Interlocking Floral Frames Wreath Card & Video

This suprisingly easy and fun interlocking card was shared by my friend Julie Davison.  Her card was a summer floral card, but I switched it up for the holidays.  Thanks for your inspiration Julie!

Retiring Stampin' Up!: Autumn Days Ideas

Autumn Day's is another one of my favorite stamp sets that is on Stampin' Up!'s Retired Stamps List.  It's actually a very versatile set.  Especially if you're looking for masculine.  But it's even great for Christmas too!  With only two days left to get Stampin' Up! retired merchandise, you'll want to take a look below.  Then be sure to add it to your retired wish list and get it before it's gone, gone, gone!

Only available until May 31st:

 

stampin up, dostamping, dawn olchefske, demonstrator, autumn days, double embossing, fathers day

This first project is one I did for my Big Shot Club this month. It features a great Double Embossing Technique. Be sure to stop back later for a how-to video featuring a brand new stamp set!

Edited to add Video Link:  Double Embossing Wow!

stampin up, dostamping, dawn olchefske, demonstrator, autumn days, double embossing, fathers day

stampin up, dostamping, dawn olchefske, demonstrator, autumn days

I absolutely adore this Christmas card from a couple years ago.  It went out to some very special people.  I don't generally make a lot of time consuming cards like this one, but some people are really worth it, don't you think?

Details for the card above and below can be found at Autumn Days Christmas Cards

Now, this next one is more my everyday style!
