A Little Something For You

Here's another card using the Holiday Catalog stamp set, A Little Something

A Little Something Card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup

The greeting on this card could have turned out a little boring...but by adding some fun details, a great color combo (Watermelon Wonder, Smokey Slate, Basic Black), and the adorable Dotted Lace Trim... it turned out sweet, don't you think?! 

A Little Something Card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup

Be sure to add this to your Stampin' Up! 2015 Holiday Catalog Pinterest board for future reference, as well as the Trick or Treat card from Saturday.  I'm looking forward to using more of the images from the A Little Something stamp set for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Enjoy~Dawn  O

A Little Something: Trick or Treat Pumpkin

Today I'm sharing one of my Holiday Catalog swap cards, featuring the Happy Haunting collection. 

Happy Haunting Collection by Stampin' Up! #dostamping

For one of my swaps I recently participated in, I wanted to use the fun Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper.  However, I didn't purchase many Halloween stamps (don't know what I was thinking!).  Then I remember, I received the "A Little Something" stamp set as a prize at the July Stampin' Up! Convention, and it has several fall/winter occasions images to choose from, including a Trick or Treat image.

This card is a great QC card (quick and cute) and a fun layout too!  The DSP measures 4" x 2-3/4".  You can get 12 pieces from one sheet of pattern paper.  Great for mass-producing cards!

The selection of patterns from the Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper are so much fun!  I couldn't decide which pattern I liked the best, so I made several variations.  Fun, huh?!

  DOstamping sample VIP Newsletter project PDF from Dawn Olchefske #stampinup

For all the details on this card, check out my A Little Something Pumpkin PDF.  This is a little sampling of the type of bonus PDFs my customers receive from my DOstamping VIP Newsletter that is sent about two times a month.  With each VIP Newsletter, I share 4-6 projects that include all the supplies and instructions for you to create them on your own.

So...how do you get on the VIP list?  All you have to do is be a customer of mine.  When you place an order with me, not only will you be on the list, but you'll receive awesome creative project ideas.  In addition, you'll receive free Stampin' Up! catalogs from me and be eligible for VIP Host Code Gifts (see program here).  I enjoy pampering my customers and giving them the VIP treatment!

Got questions...just let me know.

Enjoy~Dawn O

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge DSC#150, Color Combo #stamping #dostamping

As soon as I saw this week's color combo, I recalled some Halloween candy that I picked up from Target's Dollar Spot for my grandson's.  I wanted to make some sort of pouch or wallet to hold them. Here's what I came up with...

Sweet Hauntings Mini Treat Bag Pouch

DOstamperSTARS Challenge #149: No Bones About It

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

DSC#149 DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge

Today's inspiration screams boys!  And there's nothing I like more than to celebrate my grandsons.  So I reached for the new No Bones About It stamp set and set myself to creating a card for them. 

No Bones About it card shared by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge DSC#149 #dostamping #stampinup

My card was inspired by a convention swap I received from Stacy Piepkorn.  I really liked the "fold" on her card.  Though I did change up the colors and and texture folder.  

I'm not sure what kind of card this is, as it has a fun fold feature.  The card is basically a quarter sheet panel with a partial flap fold that reveals the measure underneath (flap measures: 1-3/4" x 5-1/2" score at 4-1/16").  If you know what these cards are called, I'd love it if you would leave a comment...thanks!

No Bones About it card shared by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge DSC#149 #dostamping #stampinup

Here's a look at the message underneath the flap...just love the fun RAWR! greeting.  I think the boys will get a kick out of getting this card in the mail.  A  little thank you for helping their Umma (that me!) sort the Holiday Catalog product shares.

Enjoy~Dawn O
