Today's card feature's the nostalgic seasonal paper called, Home For Christmas Designer Series Paper.  When you zoom in on some of the small details of each of the pattern papers, you'll find wonderful choices for cutting out with the banner punch.  The large floral piece measures 4" x 4".

I've been hearing from many of you and you're looking for ways to get your hands on this fabulous Six Sayings stamp set.  Here's a couple of ideas:

  1. Place your own order for $150 or more and choose Six Sayings with your Stampin' Rewards.
  2. Share your Stampin' Up! catalogs with your friends and place an order for everyone, and choose it with your Stampin' Rewards when the order totals $150 or more!
  3. Have your friends place an order with your very own HOST CODE.  Contact me to set up a code for you.  You'll share the code with your friends/family and get the Stampin' Rewards based on the total of everyone's order.  After everyone places their order, we'll total everything up and place your order with me along with selecting your Stampin' Rewards Six Sayings (and maybe more!)
  4. Let me know how I can help!

Enjoy~Dawn O

QC Six Sayings: Into The Woods Thankful

Oh my gosh - I can't stop making cards using yesterday's card design.  The layout came from a project shared at a virtual meeting I attended on Tuesday.  I totally fell in love with the layout and can't stop making cards with it.  

For today - I stayed with the Six Sayings stamp set (free choice with a $150 or more order).  But selected the "thankful" greeting that features a beautiful scroll-like font.  Take a look...

Six Sayings Thankful card (a must-have Stampin' Rewards choice) shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup

The only difference from yesterday's FaBOOlous card is the textured Mossy Meadow card stock panel replaces the Happy Hauntings DSP and is slightly smaller (4" x 3-3/4") to accommodate the larger greeting.  The texture comes from the new Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Six Sayings Thankful card (a must-have Stampin' Rewards choice) shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup

You're probably thinking, "what pattern paper is that?"  Good question.  It's from the Into The Woods Designer Series Paper.  Several of the patterns are very "woodsy" styled images.  But a few patterns feature Rich Razzleberry and Mossy Meadow floral & greenery images.  Pair it with the Into The Woods 3/8" Cotton Ribbon and you've got a winner! 

Several greetings from the Six Saying Stampin' Rewards stamp set are perfect for this style of card.  Just add some DSP and matching ribbon, and you're done in no time at all.  It's the perfect QC design!  I'm sure I'll be using this design layout again (maybe even in the near future...just saying!) 

Enjoy~Dawn O

DOstamperSTARS Challenge #155: FaBOOlous Six Sayings

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

DSC#155 DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge 

For today's card, I honed in on the bats coming out of the chimney and came up with a QC card (quick and cute!).  The "bats" pattern paper from the Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper is a perfect choice.  Another perfect choice is the FaBOOlous greeting from the Stampin' Rewards set, Six Sayings (from the 2015 Holiday Catalog).  I think I've said it before, but I'll say it again...this is a must-have stamp set!  When your Stampin' Up! order is $150 or more, you can purchase it with the Stampin' Rewards that you've earned

FaBOOlous Six Sayings card shared by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge DSC#155 #dostamping #stampinup.

FaBOOlous Halloween Card Instructions:

  1. Color Pearl Basic Jewels Embellishments with orange Sharpie marker.  Set aside to dry.
  2. Position (don't adhere yet) 4" x 4" piece of Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper onto 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.  Stamp greeting at top with black ink.  Now adhere DSP piece to stamped panel.  (NOTE:  I recommend this way of positioning, stamping, then adhering because if you need a second chance at stamping, then you won't have the challenge of trying to pull off adhered DSP without tearing it.)
  3. Wrap 24" of Basic Black Baker's Twine around the panel twice and tie in a bow.
  4. Punch four pieces of DSP using the Banner Punch.  Adhere to panel.
  5. Adhere completed panel to folded 4" x 11" Basic Black card stock.
  6. Attach orange pearls to greeting.
  7. Send your card to someone to enjoy!
