It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge.  This week we're having a Sketch Challenge!  For today's sketch, you'll want to get out your 1" Square Punch.

Maritime & Sea Street birthday card created by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #106, dostamping  #birthday #male  #stampinup

I really liked this week's sketch, perfect for a QC card and for my Dad's upcoming birthday.  He was a Navy man, so I chose Stampin' Up!'s Maritime Designer Series Paper.  It's perfect for both the sketch and my Dad.  Didn't turn out great?!

Today I'm sharing a favorite of my customers.  They keep oohing and aahing over it It's the DOstamperSTARS latest birthday themed Seasonal Sampler Squares Swap.  The STARS went nuts for this theme and outdone themselves.

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #081: Blue Ribbon Congrats

It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge!  This week it's a Color My World Challenge. 

#cardmaking, #dawnolchefske, #diy, #dostamping, #papercrafting, #stampinup, #thursdaychallenge 

  #cardmaking, #dawnolchefske, #diy, #dostamping, #papercrafting, #stampinup, #thursdaychallenge

Funny thing about this card...

I had the card mostly done, but I thought it needed some texture.  So I got out the Alphabet Press TIEF and a quarter sheet of Midnight Muse.  When I went to adhere it to the card - it turns out, I used Night of Navy on the rest of the card.  So that's what you get today.  Either color would look great.

#cardmaking, #dawnolchefske, #diy, #dostamping, #papercrafting, #stampinup, #thursdaychallenge

Punch and Framelit Tips:

  • Whisper White 1-3/8" Punch
  • Cherry Cobbler Circle Framelit (size 3)
  • Night of Navy Starburst Framelit (size 2)
  • Whisper White Banner Framelit (size 4)
  • Crushed Curry Banner Framelit (size 5)
  • NOTE:  For cooresponding # sizes - check out my Framelits Measurements Page

I think any graduate would enjoy this card - especially if you slide a gift card in there!

Enjoy~Dawn O

QC: Fabulous Stippled Blossoms, Catalog & Retired List updates

Today's QC card (quick and cute) was inspired by a Stippled Blossoms swap card I received from fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator, Michelle Lynch.  It's actually kinda of funny that I cased her card, because she said her card was inspired by one of my cards.  That's the beauty of sharing our creations.  

#dostamping #stampin #dawnolchefske #quickandcute #stippledblossom #cardmaking #cas

You can't go wrong with the Stippled Blossoms stamp set.  Here's why:

  • Every card you'll make with it will turn out beautifully
  • No need for perfect alignment with this 2-step stamp set - it's very forgiving
  • Works with lots of different color combinations
  • Makes you feel like an artist (and who doesn't like that!)
  • A must-have for every stamping collection  

Finish off with the "fabulous" greeting from Million and One stamp set, then stand back and admire.  Anyone would love to receive this card!

Enjoy~Dawn O

It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge.!  This week it's a Home Sweet Home Challenge. 

#cardmaking, #dawnolchefske, #diy, #dostamping, #papercrafting, #stampinup, #thursdaychallenge

#cardmaking, #dawnolchefske, #diy, #dostamping, #papercrafting, #stampinup, #thursdaychallenge

Don't recognize the decorative border?  It's leftover pieces from the Lattice Bigz Die. I've been wanting to create something using those pieces.  So, when I first saw this week's DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge, I immediately thought of my favorite Lattice Bigz Die and away I went.  The only sad thing is... it's on the retirred list.  So you'll want to get yours today before it's gone.   

#cardmaking, #dawnolchefske, #diy, #dostamping, #papercrafting, #stampinup, #thursdaychallenge

  • Stamp the Hostess Simply Sketched "leaf" image a couple times coming out from just underneath the folded edge (Early Espresso)
  • Attach Quantrafancy "window sheet" DSP under the folded edge with Sticky Strip
  • Adhere folded edge down over the window sheet with Sticky Strip
