Feels like fall! 

At least that's what I saw when working on this week's DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge.   

Stampin' Up! Winter Woods Bundle card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC302 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #masculinecards #birthdaycards #winterwoods

My husband had a birthday last week and this was the card I made for him.  It wasn't exactly what I had in my head when I first started, but I think it turned out nicely.  And more importantly, he really liked it. That's why we make cards, right?

How'd She DO That? tips for Fall Winter Woods card:

  1. Stamps: Winter Woods, Beautiful Day

Dawn's Sponging Technique Tips:

  • To get the ombre look, use Stamping Sponges
  • Sponge on ink using a circular motion
  • Start with the lightest color, working from the bottom to the top with the darkest color. 
  • I used Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody and just a touch of Pumpkin Pie.
  • I actually make a panel with Crajun Craze at the top, but it was too dark for my liking.

Even though the name of this stamp set/bundle is called Winter Woods, it makes fabulous fall card too - don't you think?!   Add it to your shopping bag today - see shopping links below.
