Stamping with the STARS #313: Last Chance Inspiration

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts313.  This week we're showcasing Last Chance projects using products that are retiring. Stamping with the STARS Last Chance inspiration hop #DOswts313 #dostamperstars #papercrafting #stamping #cardmaking Quick & Cute Incredible Like You card from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #DOswts313 #quickandcute

The Last Chance products I chose were the Incredible Like You stamp set and Gingham Gala 6x6 Designer Series Paper.   

The card was one of four featured at my Stamp-a-Stack last this week.  I was inspired by a swap I received from one of my STARS team members, Dawn Thomas.  

How'd She DO That? Incredible Like You card:

  • Stamps: Incredible Like You (retiring)
  • Paper:
    • Lemon Lime Twist - retiring (11" x 4-1/4" card base and scrap for 3-1/16" scallop circle die)
    • Whisper White (4" x 5-1/4" and scrap for 2-7/8" stitched circle die)  
    • Gingham Gala 6x6 Designer Series Paper - retiring (5" x 2")
  • Ink: Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape, Lemon Lime Twist, Tuxedo Black Memento
  • Other:  Big Shot, Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies, Layering Circles Framelits Dies, Gorgeous Grape 1/4" Striped Ribbon, Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals

Quick & Cute Incredible Like You card from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #DOswts313 #quickandcute

This card was definitely a favorite at the class. 

One of the conversations we had during the class was, for 2-step stamping which do you prefer?  Stamp the lighter solid image first OR stamp the darker detailed first?  Which do you prefer?

If you like the Incredible Like You stamp set, not only for the floral images, but the fabulous greetings (with a fun mix of scrip and text fonts), then you'll also like the Incredible Like You Project Kit (also retiring)!

Stampin' Up! Incredible Like You Project Kit shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #projectkits

I purchase several (5) of the Incredible Like You Project Kits. Why?  Because these cards are AMAZING!  I've made up all but one of the kits and have mailed out all of the cards.  Everyone who receives one is very impressed with the card.  Not only are they gorgeous, but they are easy to make. 

Stampin' Up! Incredible Like You Project Kit shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #projectkits

DOstamping Incredible Like You Project Kit Tips

  • When I'm making up a project kit, the first thing I like to do is sort all of the pieces into piles for each card.
  • Then I do the stamping.  For this kit, the only stamping is the sentiment labels which use Lovely Lipstick and Coastal Cabana ink...easy!  (great for beginning and experienced stampers alike)
  • Then I'm ready to assemble each style of card, by using the photos provided in the kit!

The kit features delicate laser-cut overlays that let the color peek through on these all-occasion cards.  Store or gift your cards in the reusable plastic storage envelope.  Makes 16 cards, 4 each of 4 designs. Folded card size: 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" (10.8 x 14 cm).

Kit includes:

  •  16 printed card bases
  • Laser-cut card front overlays
  • 16 printed envelopes
  • Glimmer, printed, and silver foil die-cut accents
  • Grapefruit Grove Baker’s Twine
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals, Adhesive dots
  • Adhesive-backed rhinestones
  • 6-5/16" x 5" x 2-5/16" (16 x 12.7 x 5.9 cm) printed polypropylene storage envelope

Coordinating colors: Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Grapefruit Grove, Lovely Lipstick, silver, white

You're friends are going to be so impressed when they receive an Incredible Like You Project Kit card from you.  OR make up the whole kit and package them up in the kit's storage envelope and give them as a gift.  They'll love you for it!

Stock up now before they are gone!

Enjoy~Dawn O

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop: Sentimental Rose

Paper Pumpkin Thing Monthly Blog Hop Dawn Olchefske #paperpumpkin #dostamping

Welcome to A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop! 

I'm excited to join in with this talented group of stampers to share alternate ideas for Paper Pumpkin Kits.  Today we're sharing the April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Sentimental Rose.

Paper Pumpkin Sentimental Rose Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

This month's kit is gorgeous!  I'm enjoying playing with it. 

Today I'm sharing two cards, one for Mom and one for Dad.  That's right, with the black and yellow tones, my mind went to a masculine card.  Check them out...

Paper Pumpkin Sentimental Rose Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

How'd She DO That? Happy Mother's Day card

For this card, I used only the elements from the kit, just in a different way.  I really wanted to bring focus to the beautiful Distinkive floral image, which is stamped on a 2-1/2" white square panel.  Then mounted to the large corrugated piece that was trimmed down to a 2-7/8" square.  Add the twine, greeting and enamel dot...and voila!  A cute and quick card came together just like that.

Paper Pumpkin Sentimental Rose Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits #masculinecards

How'd She DO That? For You card

After cutting apart some of the card bases in my kit, my eye was drawn to the black and yellow shades.  Which screamed "masculine" to me.

  • Cut a 1" x 1-1/8" piece from each of the three card base patterns.
  • Adhere them to a 3-1/4" Whisper White square.   Then adhere to a 3-1/2" So Saffron square.
  • Stamp greeting on yellow banner with black ink.  Trim the ends off, then adhere them under the greeting to create a dimensional banner.
  • Tie a piece of Black/Silver 1/4" Striped Metallic Ribbon on to a Classic Garage Metal Element.
  • Adhere to folded 8-1/2" x 4-1/4" Basic Black card base.

I hope you enjoyed these ideas. The next stop on our blog hop is Tracy Elsom.  See the full list below. 

Enjoy~Dawn O

Head on over to the Clearance Rack to shop and SAVE!

 


Speaking of the Clearance Rack...today I'm sharing a fun little gift I made for my DOstamperSTARS Team Members who attended OnStage.  It uses the adorable Nine Lives Stamp Set and the Sweet Soiree Ready Shreddie from the Clearance Rack (a great product to have around for gift packaging).  

Nine Lives Gift Box created by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #giftboxes #ONSTAGE2019 #minneapolisonstage2019 #dostamperSTARS

For each Stampin' Up! event, I try to do something special for my team.  This year, I found these cute Suction Cup Cat Phone Stands (see below) that I thought would be fun to package up using the Nine Lives stamp set.  They turned out super cute and everyone loved them!

How'd She DO That? Cat Gift Boxes:

  • Stamps: Nine Lives
  • Paper:  Smoky Slate (scrap for punch)
  • Ink: Tuxedo Black Memento Ink
  • Other:  Clear Tiny Treat Boxes, Cat Punch
  • Retiring:  Berry Burst Ribbon Metallic-Edge Ribbon, Petal Pink/Silver Baker's Twine, Mini Silver Sequin Trim
  • Clearance Rack:  Sweet Soiree Ready Shreddie

Nine Lives Gift Box Tags created by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #giftboxes #ONSTAGE2019 #minneapolisonstage2019 #dostamperSTARS

For a little added bling, I gave each cat tag a Silver Mini Sequin Trim collar...how cute!

Nine Lives Gift Box created by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #giftboxes #ONSTAGE2019 #minneapolisonstage2019 #dostamperSTARS

Here they all are at OnStage, along with DOstamperSTARS lanyards and name tag banners!

We had such a great time at OnStage, being together, swapping and seeing all of the "coming soon" products.  If you're looking for a fun group of stampers to join, you will enjoy the STARS.  Learn more here.

If you know me, I really love adding little touches like ribbon, trim and bling to my projects.  And if you're like me, you'll miss some of the retiring ribbon/trims (see shopping list below).  So, be sure to stock up on your favorites before they are gone.

Enjoy~Dawn O

Tips for shopping the Retires List:

If you've never gone through a Stampin' Up! retired list before, let me give you some pointers:

  1. If you have any bundles from the Occasions or Annual Catalog on your shopping list, get them NOW.  Even if the individual products carry over, the bundle price will not.  (Bundle pricing is only good for the catalog they appear in first)
  2. Retiring 2017-2019 In Color products tend to sell out fast.  So stock up on paper, ink refills, ribbon and more - sooner than later!!
  3. Products only available while they last.  

Be sure to shop the RETIRE LIST early so you don't miss out on your favorites!

Two Fable Friends Cards: Not Just For Easter!

Last week I shared a few Easter cards using the Fable Friends stamp set

But did you know...Fable Friends Cling Stamp Set [148670] is not just for Easter.  Who can resist these cute animals for baby, friends and spring projects too?  Check out the darling baby and friend cards below...

Stampin' Up! Fable Friends cards shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #babycards

How'd She DO That? tips for Darling Baby card:

  • Stamps: Fable Friends
    Paper:

    • Soft Seafoam (5/8" x 4-1/4" for sentiment)
    • Thick Whisper White (scrap for bunny)
    • Twinkle Twinke Designer Series Paper (1-1/4" x 5" stripe, 1/2" x 4-7/8" dots)
  • Ink: Gray Granite, Tuxedo Black Memento-bunny

Stampin' Up! Fable Friends cards shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #babycards

The bunny is so cute and hard to resist his sweet face!


Use Stampin' Up! Catalogs for inspiration!

If you found the bunny card a little bit familiar, that is because it was inspired by the layout from the kangaroo card on page 26 of the Annual Catalog.   Even though the original sample is from the Animal Exhibition Suite, it works perfectly with the adorable bunny image, don't you think? 

So don't forget, Stampin' Up! catalogs make for a great resource to use when you are feeling "stuck" on a layout.

Stamping with the STARS #312: Recessed Panel Card Inspiration

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts312.  This week we're having fun with Recessed Panel cards!

I've seen Recessed Panel cards around for years, but have never made one.  If you search for them, you'll find samples of horizontal, vertical and diagonal versions.  I chose the diagonal version, as I like the visual interest.   I got out the Needlepoint Nook Suite of products and started to play!

DOstamping Needlepoint Recessed card supplies:

  • Whisper White Thick (11" x 4-1/4" card base) 
  • Whisper White (5-1/2" x 4-1/4" and scrap for punch)
  • Old Olive (5-1/2" x 4-1/4")
  • Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper (3" x 6")
  • Rich Razzleberry (scrap for punch)

How'd She DO That? Recessed Panel Instructions:

  • On folded card base, adhere Designer Series Paper at a diagonal.  Align it at the bottom right corner, then align the opposite corner with the left edge of the card - see above.  (You could use a full panel of Designer Series Paper.  However, if you want your DSP to go farther, use a 3" x 6" piece.)
  • Cut both white and olive 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" panels at the same time.
    • Near the top left side, make a mark at 3/4" & 1-1/8".  On the right side, make a mark at 3" down from the top.
    • For top "half" - start at 3/4" mark on the left edge and cut diagonally over to 3" mark on the right edge.  Trim off 1/8" from top edge of white panel.
    • For bottom "half" - start at 1-1/8" mark on the left edge and cut diagonally down to the bottom right corner of the panels.  Trim off 1/8" from bottom edge of white panel.
    • Adhere white and olive panels together
  • Optional:  before adhering cut panels to card, add texture.
  • Adhere panels to card with Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Decorate as desired

Take a Closer Look:

  • Look at all of the fun "stitching" on the lower panel and the greeting label.  I was giddy to discover how fabulous it looks.  Both are from the Needlepoint Elements Framelits Dies.
  • The Pretty Label Punch is perfect to cut the greeting label.
  • The finishing touch is the Needlepoint Nook Mini Buttons and Old Olive Linen Thread.

Not sure why I waited so long to make a Recessed Panel card, it was fun to make.  Whether you make your panel vertical, horizontal or diagonal (like mine), I'm sure you'll have fun too!  Give it a try.

Enjoy~Dawn O
