DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #207: Hang Your Stocking Bundle

It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge.  This week we're having a "Sketch Pad" challenge.  

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #207-Sketch Pad


For today's sketch, I knew I would be using Stampin' Up!'s Delicate White Doilies for the half circle layer.  Since I haven't had a chance to use the new Hang Your Stockings Bundle yet...I thought that would be a good choice.

Stampin' Up! Hang Your Stockings Bundle by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC207 #dostamping
Dawn's Hang Your Stocking Card

  1. Adhere 3-7/8' x 5-1/8" Whisper White cardstock to 4" x 5-1/4" Emerald Envy cardstock.  Then adhere to folded 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" Cherry Cobbler card base.
  2. Adhere 1/2 of a doily to top of 3-5/8" x 4-7/8" piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock.   Wrap Bakers Twine Trio Pack (Cherry Cobbler) around panel twice and tie in a bow.
  3. Stamp greeting (Hang Your Stocking stamp set) in lower right corner with Whisper White Craft Ink.  Set aside to dry.
  4. Adhere 2-3/4" x 2" piece of Presents & Pinecones Designer Series Paper to same size piece of Whisper White (use a lot of adhesive).  Then die cut with Christmas Stockings Thinlits Die.  Die cut cuff and toe pieces from Dazzling Diamond Glimmer Paper.  Adhere to stocking with Glue Dots.  Adhere 7-/8' x 1" piece of glimmer paper to backside of stocking under snowflake opening.
  5. Stamp berries (Cherry Cobbler) and leaves (Emerald Envy) on scrap of Whisper White, and die cut.  Adhere together with Glue Dots, then to stocking.  Adhere completed stocking to card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  6. Adhere completed panel to card front with Stampin' Dimensionals

Quick & Cute Tin of Tags with Stitched Shapes Framelits (& update)

Need a quick and cute card for the holidays?  I have a perfect one for you today featuring the Tin of Tags stamp set (25% off) and the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

But first...an update from Stampin' Up! on the Stitched Shapes Framelits

We are happy that the Stitched Shapes Framelits have been so well received. And while we thought we had sufficient inventory to last through the end of the year, were are surprised to find that it all sold in about two weeks!  From the beginning of the promotion, we could see that sales were exceeding our forecasts, and we immediately sent in a second shipping order. Since then, sales have continued to increase.

Because of the extreme demand, the Stitched Shapes Framelits (145372) will go into backorder very soon, and will be placed on non-orderable status on November 21, 2016, at 10:00 AM (MT).  At that time...when you enter this product’s item number you will receive a pop-up notification asking if you would like to be notified via email when this product is back in stock. This allows you to find out immediately when the item’s status changes and it is again available for purchase. 

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause for you. In the meantime, stamp sets included in the Stitched From The Heart promotion are still available. 

Stampin' Up! Tin of Tags stamp set and Stitched Shapes Framelits card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping

Today's card share is a project I did at my local Stamping Club last night.  It features the popular diagonal cut paper trick, as well as the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  

My favorite thing about this card (besides the super cute stitched circle), is how it makes your pattern paper go farther.  Typically you'll get 6 pieces of 4" x 5-1/4" pieces from one sheet.  But with this fun diagonal cut, you only need either a 3-7/8" square or 4" square...which means you'll get 9 pieces from one sheet...yay! 

This Christmas Diagonal Cut Card

  1. Diagonal cut a 3-7/8" x 3-7/8" piece of This Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Adhere pieces (to top and bottom edges) of 4" x 5-1/4" Cherry Cobbler cardstock.
  2. Wrap 30" of Baker's Twine Trio Pack (Cherry Cobbler) twice around panel and tie in a bow.
  3. Adhere panel to folded 4-1/4" x 11" Very Vanilla card base with Stampin' Dimensonals
  4. Stamp greeting (Tin of Tags stamp set) with Cherry Cobbler ink on scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock.  Die cut with 2-3/8 circle Stitched Shape Framelits and adhere with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  5. Attach 3 small Basic Jewel Rhinestones.

So, if the Stitched Shapes Framelits haven't yet moved from your wish list to your shopping bag, you may want to do that sooner than later.  And...don't forget to review the 25% off Stamp Sets list too!

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #206: Christmas Pines Baker's Box

It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge.  This week we're having a "Product Spotlight-Packaging Dies" challenge.  

DOstamperSTARS Challenge #206-Product Spotlight

For a packaging die, I chose the Bakers Box Thinlit Dies.  And it was a good thing, as I hadn't used it yet - yikes.  What I discovered was...this box is super easy and comes together really fast.

Stampin' Up! Baker's Box with Christmas Pines box created by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC206 #dostamping

  1. Cut one sheet of 8-1/2" x 11" piece of cardstock down to two pieces of 5-1/2" x 6" pieces.  Die cut 2 box shapes.
  2. Die cut "double circle" at top of each box shape, and die cut window.  
  3. Adhere 2" x 2-1/2" piece of Window Sheet to the inside of the box to cover the window area.
  4. Adhere box with Tear & Tape adhesive and fold box together
  5. Fill with treats
  6. Tie off with Kraft Rope Trim

Stampin' Up! Baker's Box with Christmas Pines box created by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC206 #dostamping

  • Stamp greeting from Christmas Pines stamp set with Real Red on scrap of Whisper White.  Die cut with small "label" shape
  • Punch 1/16" circle.  Thread Candy Cane Baker's Twine thru hole and under/& around rope trim.  Tie in a bow.
  • Die cut pine (Cucumber Crush) and berries (Red Glimmer Paper) using Pretty Pines Thinlits.  Adhere with glue dots under greeting.

I'm definitely going to be using the Baker's Box Thinlit Dies more often! 

Enjoy~Dawn O
