Video: DAD, Pop-Up Name Card

I shared a cool Pop-Up Name Card last week on the Control Freaks Blog Tour.  I've had many requests for a How'd She DO That? Video.  Well you're in luck!  As I did a similiar card with my Big Shot Club this month.  Measurements are slightly different, but the concept is the same.

If you're interested in learning ways to use your Big Shot Die Cutting Machine, or considering purchasing one...this online club may just be the club for you!  You don't need to own a die cutting machine to participate.  You'll receive 3 projects each month.  Big Shot items are cut for you.  However, stamping is not included (in accordance with Stampin' Up! policy).  You'll have access to a private club page to view the completed projects (some with videos and some with written instructions, when necessary).  Currently, I have openings for new members.  Contact me if you'd like to join!

Control Freaks NEW Stampin' Up! 2013/2014 Catalog Sneak Peak Tour!

 

Control Freak Welcome, Stampin' Up!, DOstamping, Dawn Olchefske

Welcome to the Control Freaks May 2013 Tour (officially starts May 20th, but should be live by 8:00pm central time May 19th- so be sure to stop back later to take the full tour). We are thrilled to have you join us today. Our tour features some of your favorite Control Freaks Stampers sharing projects made with Stampin' Up! products. In fact, you may have just come from the fabulous Mary Brown's Blog

Our theme for this month is: "Stampin' Up! New Catalog Sneak Peaks!".   

Sketched Birthday Invite

stampin up, dostamping, dawn olchefske, sketched birthday, 2013/2014 Stampin' Up! catalog, chalkboard technique

This is the invitation we used for my grandson's Max & Sam's 6th and 4th birthdays.  It features the popular "Chalkboard" stamping technique, which is a perfect match for the new Sketched Birthday stamp set.

DAWN'S TIP:  Mount all 5 images on clear block "I" for fast and easy stamping!

 

Sketched Birthday Personalized Card

stampin up, dostamping, dawn olchefske, sketched birthday, 2013/2014 Stampin' Up! catalog, chalkboard technique

Of course, I had to make matching Birthday Cards too.  But with a fun twist, by personalizing one for each of them.  When they open their card, their name pops up by using 1/2" strips of window sheets and the letters of them names.  Good thing they have 3-letter names!!

I was inspired to create their "name" cards from a idea shared on my recent Stampin' Up! Fiji trip by fellow demonstrator, Candy M.
