All is Calm Square Diamond Border and How'd She DO That? Video

What do you do with leftover pattern paper?  Hoard them like I do?  Well, here's a way to use them up. These Square Diamond Border cards are a great way to use up those scraps.  Be sure to scroll down for the How'd She DO That? video from last week's Square Diamond Border card.

Oct 2014 Paper Pumpkin: Clown Easel Card

If you're a Paper Pumpkin Subscriber, you received a fun surprise in the mail last month...Pie Boxes!  These fun boxes were created to celebrate the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.  But you know demonstrators - we can't leave things alone, we've got to make something else with it. Here's a fun Clown Easel Card idea for you and a How'd She DO That? Video!

Clown Punch Art Easel card shared by Dawn Olchefske, dostamping  #paperpumpkin #sweetaspie #stampinup

How stinkin' cute is this?  It actually started as a Clown Hat, Party Hat card and evolved into an Easel Card to reveal the clown face.  

Do you do that?  Make something and know it's not quite done, not quite what you were going for.  Then set it aside and bam!...the next day, it hits you and you know exactly what to do with it.  That's what happened here and I'm just giddy about the way it turned out!

So, what did you think?  Cute, huh?  They could even be used as Place Cards for a kids party.  Just write their name on the hat or below the clown face.  What fun that would be!

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.

106

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?!

guestSTAR Sharon Bennett: Fall Idea with Truly Grateful

Each month on our private DOstamperSTARS facebook group, we feature one person as our guestSTAR of the month. This past month, Sharon Bennett was our guest.  She had a "Fall" theme for her projects.  Take a look at one of them...

guestSTAR Sharon Bennett of DOstamperSTARS made with Stampin' Up! Truly Grateful, Autumn Accents Die, shared by Dawn Olchefske, dostamping  #fall #cardmaking  #stampinup

This one was probably my favorite project (though, they all were fabulous!)  I loved the way Sharon created the leaves...they look so real. Plus she used one of my all-time favorite stamp sets, Truly Grafeful (131730w or 131733c)

She's posted all four of her projects on her Crafty and Creative Ideas Blog.  Be sure to check it out.

I want to thank Sharon for being such a fabulous guestSTAR!

Enjoy~Dawn O
