DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #103: Tag Talk Boy or Girl

It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge.  This week we're having a Sketch Challenge!

#cardmaking #dawnolchefske #diy #dostamping #papercrafting #stampinup  #dostamperstars #thursdaychallenge #colorchallenge #cardmaking #DSC103 #baby #lullaby #tagtalk

I am lovin' this week's Sketch Pad challenge.  Not only is it a great QC card layout (quick & cute)...it's also perfect for Stampin' Up!'s Designer Series Paper.  Pull out just about any DSP pack and Stampin' Up! has already done the work for you with mixing and matching patterns.  All you need to do is decide what kind of greeting you want to add and you're done in no time at all.  

#cardmaking #dawnolchefske #diy #dostamping #papercrafting #stampinup  #dostamperstars #thursdaychallenge #colorchallenge #cardmaking #DSC103 #baby #lullaby #tagtalk

I choose the Lullaby Designer Series Paper.  It's perfect for baby cards and this sketch too!  I couldn't decide if I wanted to do a boy or a girl card, so I made both.  Which do you like?

#cardmaking #dawnolchefske #diy #dostamping #papercrafting #stampinup  #dostamperstars #thursdaychallenge #colorchallenge #cardmaking #DSC103 #baby #lullaby #tagtalk

 Dawn's Paper Measurements:

  • Cardbase 8-1/2" x 5-1/2"
  • Left piece 2"x 4"
  • Top right 3-1/8" x 1-1/2"
  • Bottom right 3-1/2 x 2-3/8"

I can see myself reaching for this sketch again.  I think you'll enjoy it as well.

Thanks for stopping by~Dawn O

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #102: Bordering Blossoms

It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge.  This week we're having a Color Challenge!

#cardmaking #dawnolchefske #diy #dostamping #papercrafting #stampinup  #dostamperstars #thursdaychallenge #colorchallenge #cardmaking #DSC102 #borderingblooms #ageawareness #birthday

#cardmaking #dawnolchefske #diy #dostamping #papercrafting #stampinup  #dostamperstars #thursdaychallenge #colorchallenge #cardmaking #DSC102 #borderingblooms #ageawareness #birthday

For today's Thursday Challenge card, I pulled out a couple of stamp sets that have yet to see ink to create a QC card (quick & cute).  

  • Bordering Blooms - large flower is Island Indigo, smaller flower is Blackberry Bliss
  • Age Awareness -greeting is Island Indigo, candles are Blackberry Bliss

At first glance, I didn't think the style of these sets would really go together very well, but I'm really happy with the results.  Both of these stamp sets are photopolymer and I'm really lovin' the see-thru clear.  It really makes the positioning of the Bordering Blooms images a snap!

You're probably wondering where I used the third color, Old Olive.  Look closer and you'll find it...Old Olive Bakers Twine.
