Glitter Window Technique: Happy Scenes, Hearth & Home Bundle

I received a swap card earlier this fall that brought back memories of the Glitter Window Technique.  I taught the technique to my club members many years ago, but I thought it was time to do it again.  I cased Brenda Sprenger's swap card that used the Hearth & Home Thinlit Dies from the Holiday Catalog.  Below you'll find my version, as well as a How'd She DO That? video.  Get out some packing tape and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, and let's get started!

WATCH VIDEO: Hearth & Home Glitter Window

 The snowflakes were created using the Flurry of Wishes bundle and heat embossed on Vellum cardstock.

These photos don't do justice to this card (very hard to photograph).  You'll just have to try it to see how beautiful it is in real life.  Have fun creating your own Glitter Window Technique cards!

DOstamperSTARS Challenge #159: Mistletoe & Holly Money Holder

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

DSC#159 Color Challenge DOstamperSTARS

For this week's color challenge, I immediately thought of Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Catalog.  But as you'll notice, I ended up using the Season of Cheer Designer Series Paper.  Why?  Because before I actually made the card, I had already die cut MERRY letters from the Little Letter Thinlits Dies and mounted them to 1" Whisper White Circles.  So - what was the problem?  Well...the Home for Christmas DSP coordinates with Very Vanilla.  So I switched over to Season of Cheer DSP and changed Pool Party to Soft Sky, as it coordinated better.  As Tim Gunn would say..."make it work"!

Mistletoe & Holly Money Holder card shared by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge DSC#159 #dostamping #paperpumpkin

This card is actually a money holder.  The finished size is 7" x 3-1/4".   As for an envelope - it would fit in a legal envelope.  But if prefer a better fit, you can make your own envelope out of the Real Red Envelope Paper (from the Holiday Catalog) and the Envelope Punch Board, like I did.  

Tips for envelope:

  • It requires a 8-5/8" square piece of Real Red Envelope Paper  
  • Follow the instructions on the Envelope Punch Board for a 3-1/5" x 7" card size
  • After scoring & folding, you'll find that the bottom and top flaps are a little too long.  
  • Cut 1-1/2" off from the bottom flap
  • Cut 3/4" off from the top flap

 

Money Holder card shared by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge DSC#159 #dostamping #stampinup

Tips for Money Holder:

  • Start with 8-1/2" x 7" piece of Soft Sky card stock
  • With 8-1/2" edge at top of Simply Scored board, score at 3-1/4" & 6-1/2"
  • Turn and place the smaller scored end into Envelope Punch Board.
  • Align left edge at 4-1/4" mark and punch
  • Use Paper Trimmer to trim away from punched area to the right edge.
  • Stamp greeting from Six Sayings stamp set (a free Stampin' Rewards choice with $150 order)
  • Place a 1-3/4" piece of Tear & Tape Adhesive along the left side edge and fold up to secure. 
  • Insert money
  • Fold over top of card and decorate
  • Enjoy!

Mistletoe & Holly Money Holder card shared by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge DSC#159 #dostamping #paperpumpkin

 Tips for Card Front:

  • Adhere 1/2" x 7" strip of Mossy Meadow card stock to card front
  • Adhere 1" x 7" strip of Season of Cheer Designer Series Paper to card front
  • Die cut Real Red M E R R Y letters with Little Letters Thinlits Die
  • Use Fine-Tip Glue Pen to adhere to (5) 1" Whisper White Circles
  • Use holly leaves from Mistletoe & Holly Paper Pumpkin kit to stamp on scraps of Whisper White
  • One with Real Red Ink and cut with 1" Circle punch
  • One with Mossy Meadow ink (quickly blend ink around to fill in leaves). Fussy cut leaves out and adhere with Stampin' Dimensionals over red stamped leaves.
  • Position and adhere completed circles to card with Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Enjoy!

If you are anything like me, you might have a couple of people on your gift-giving list who would enjoy the gift of money this year.  This would make a great birthday card idea too.  Hmm... 

Enjoy~Dawn O

Happy Thanksgiving with Lighthearted Leaves (Baby Wipe Technique)

Do you remember the Baby Wipe Stamping Technique?  It's an oldie by goodie technique.  It was a hit with my Stamping Club Members this fall.  A little messy, but fun!  We used the soon-to-be-retired Lighthearted Leaves Stamp Set.  (Check out the full retired list)

Lighthearted Leaves Baby Wipe Stamping Technique card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup

Baby Wipe Stamping Technique

  • Supplies: 
    • Baby Wipes, Ink Refills (Pool Party, Blackberry Bliss)
  • Instructions:
    • Fold a couple of baby wipes to create a surface large enough for your stamp.
    • Press stamp into the baby wipe to get an impression of the image.  (optionally...you could then use pencil to outline the areas you want to use for each of the colors you're using.)  
    • Use the ink refills to squeeze drops of ink onto a baby wipe.  For the "maple leaf" image, I put the Pool Party ink near the center of the leaf and Blackberry Bliss ink for the rest of the image.  This basically creates an inkpad.  (optional:  randomly drop ink onto the baby wipe in an area large enough for the stamp image.)
    • Tap the stamp onto the inked up baby wipe, then stamp onto Whisper White cardstock (Shimmery White cardstock would work great too)  
    • Let dry.
