Stamp Stock & Save: Last Day to Choose Happiness at 20% off

 Don't forget...Stamp Stock & Save sale ends today at 11:50pm (MT) tonight.  See details below and stock up tonight!

Here's one of the stamp sets on sale for 20% off, Choose Happiness...

#dostamping #stampinup  #stampinup #stampstocksave #choosehappiness #cardmaking #holidaycards #blendabilities

Every since I saw this stamp set, I wanted to create a holiday card with the leaves image.  I stamped the leaves from Choose Happiness with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, colored with Blendabilities, then sponged the edges (that's what makes this card pop, the sponging).

I used all three shades of Old Olive Blendabilities to color the leaves.  

  • Light at the tip of the leaves
  • Dark at the bottom of the leaves
  • Medium in middle to blend the two together.  

Color Rhinestone Jewels with the Cherry Cobble Blendabilities Marker (dark) before adding to the card.

Just another way to use the Choose Happiness stamp set.  Change out the greeting and you have a Thinking of You, Sympathy, etc. 

Get yours today at 15% off!

Don't Be Afraid...Stampin' Up! Frightful Wreath!

ok, ok...I gave in and ordered the new Frightful Wreath Simply Created Kit.  People have been raving about it and I thought - "what, it couldn't be that cute".  Well, I was wrong...it is that cute!  And fun to make too!

#dostamping #dawnolchefske #stampinup #diy #frightfulwreath #wcmd2014 #halloween #homedecor

The Frightful Wreath came together at my very first Craft the Night Away get-together.  A night designed for me to do some personal crafting.  I invited a few friends & customers to join me to craft their own projects with me.  The event was timed to coordinate with World Card Making Day, which is this weekend.

#dostamping #dawnolchefske #stampinup #diy #frightfulwreath #wcmd2014 #halloween #homedecor 

Note: a hot glue tool is needed to adhere the end of the black "wrap", the glittered web to the wreath and the paper rosette.

#dostamping #dawnolchefske #stampinup #diy #frightfulwreath #wcmd2014 #halloween #homedecor

A closer look at the beaded spider may appear intimidating - especially to a non-beader, like me.  But it was so easy (a little time-consuming, but not hard at all).  I love the results - he's so cute!

#dostamping #dawnolchefske #stampinup #diy #frightfulwreath #wcmd2014 #halloween #homedecor

Both the wreath and the night was a huge success for me.  It was fun getting to know some of my customers better, fun to spend time in my new classroom crafting and not working.  I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate World Card Making Day. 

#dostamping #dawnolchefske #stampinup #diy #holidayhomebundle #wcmd2014

 Here's my friend, Terry with one of her creations for the night...a card for a friend who just bought a house.  Features the Holiday Home Stamps & Framelit Bundle (135857).

#dostamping #dawnolchefske #stampinup #diy #holidayhomebundle #wcmd2014

I'll definitely be doing more Craft the Night Away get-togethers in the future.  Hope you get a chance to do some crafting this weekend.

Enjoy~Dawn O

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #101: Party Pennants Treat Pouches

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

#cardmaking #dawnolchefske #diy #dostamping #papercrafting #stampinup  #dostamperstars #thursdaychallenge #homesweethomechallenge #cardmaking #DSC101 #halloween #treatpouch #partypennants

Today's Home Sweet Home photo inspiration made me naturally think of Halloween.  When I think of Halloween, I think of treats!

#cardmaking #dawnolchefske #diy #dostamping #papercrafting #stampinup  #dostamperstars #thursdaychallenge #homesweethomechallenge #cardmaking #DSC101 #halloween #treatpouch #partypennants

So, I reached for my new Party Pennants die that arrived just last week and put these darling treat pouches together in no time at all.  Didn't they turn out cute?

I'll put together a How'd She DO That? video, so you can make them too.  Stop back in a few days

Four Feathers Bundle Card

#dostamping #stampinup #dawnolchefske #2014holidaycatalog #fourfeathers #bigshot #feathersframelit

Four Feathers...the name says it all, but these feathers are more than just a stamp set. Combine them with the Feather Framelits Dies for one-of-a-kind accents and save 15%.  That's right...it's a bundle!

The above card was featured at my local Just Cards Buffet class last night and it has a huge hit!  I drew inspiration from a swap I received at Founder's Circle from Catherine Saunders.
