This Bone Appetit eye-catching Trick or Treat/skull border was not only fun to stamp, but it was really easy to create. 

Just stamp the bottom row of sentiments first with Pumpkin Pie ink, filling in with the skulls with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then repeat on top.

The Bone Appetit Pencil Holder also came together quickly and is a great way to use the Bone Appetit kit for non-candy treats! 

  • Trim off the top/bottom of one of the treat boxes. 
  • Cut the 4 "middle" panels into two panels each (you'll get two holders from one box). 
  • Fold in half around pencils and staple shut.  Decorate as desired.

Here's two more ideas from the STARS:

I thought it was clever the way Bernadette used the negative area from the label dies and backed it with black cardstock.

The die cut skeleton, spider webs and foil labels from the Bone Appetit kit are a great way to decorate the new Coffin Boxes!

April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit: More Alternate Sentimental Rose Ideas

Have you seen the Sentimental Rose April Paper Pumpkin Kit?  

This Distinktive kit showcases a beautiful flower image and the perfect variety of greetings for upcoming occasions.

Sentimental Rose April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit ideas by Dawn Olchefske #stampinup #paperpumpkin #cardmaking #cardkit #rubberstamping #diy #sentimentalrose Paper Pumpkin color combo Gray Granite, Calypso Coral, Flirty Flamingto, So Saffron, Mint Macaron, Basic Black from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup #paperpumpkin #colorcombo #sentimentalrose

Coordinating Stampin’ Up! colors:  Gray Granite, Calypso Coral, Flirty Flamingo, So Saffron, Mint Macaron, Basic Black

The Sentimental Rose Paper Pumpkin kit is gorgeous and was fun to play around with.   I have several ideas to share with you today.  Check them out below...
Sentimental Rose April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit alternate ideas by Dawn Olchefske #stampinup #paperpumpkin #cardmaking #cardkit #rubberstamping #diy #sentimentalrose

I'm starting off with a couple of quick and cute cards using only the products that come with the kit.

How'd She DO That? Happy Birthday :

  • Trim 1" off from front edge of So Saffron card base. (save for "Thinking of You" card below)
  • On 4-1/4" x 3" card front layer (from kit), score 1-1/2" in from the "less colored" end.
  • On larger end, stamp flowers/leaves over color splotches.
  • Turn card base around so it opens from the left.  Adhere fold-over piece to the back of the card base & decorate.

Sentimental Rose April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit alternate ideas by Dawn Olchefske #stampinup #paperpumpkin #cardmaking #cardkit #rubberstamping #diy #sentimentalrose

How'd She DO That? Thinking of You:

  • Adhere 1" x 5" So Saffron piece about 1-1/4" from bottom edge of "dotted" card base (from previous card).
  • Trim 5" x 2-3/4" card front layer (from kit) in half at 1-3/8" (you'll have two 1-3/8" x 5" strips). Cut one strip to 4-1/8" in length.
  • Stamp flowers/leaves as desired. Cut into three 1-3/8" squares.  Adhere squares to card using dimensionals, & decorate

Sentimental Rose April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit alternate ideas by Dawn Olchefske #stampinup #paperpumpkin #cardmaking #cardkit #rubberstamping #diy #sentimentalrose

How'd She DO That? 9-Square card:

  • Trim envelopes to reveal pattern paper. Cut (3) 1" squares from each pattern - total 9 squares.
  • Arrange squares on 3-1/4" Whisper White square, then adhere down. (TIP:  Start in lower right corner, then lower left corner, then the space in between them...etc)  Adhere completed panel to 3-1/2" Mint Macaron Square.
  • Stamp sentiment on label from kit with Mint Macaron ink.  Mat with Calypso Coral 1-3/8 Scallop Circle.
  • Before adhering everything to So Saffron 11" x 4-1/4" card base with dimensionals, arrange pieces to eyeball  where to stamp the leaves.   (which are stamped off first).   Adhere everything down in place.
  • Adhere twine bow (from Nature's Twine) with glue dot. Adhere enamel dot.

 

Sentimental Rose April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit alternate ideas by Dawn Olchefske #stampinup #paperpumpkin #cardmaking #cardkit #rubberstamping #diy #sentimentalrose

Don't discard the blue tissue paper that comes in your Paper Pumpkin box.   Make in into flowers using the 4-Petal Punch.   

Create TWO flowers:   1 for card, 1 for box.

  • Fold tissue paper over several times and flatten,  checking to make sure it can fit into the punch the 4-Petal Punch. 
  • Use punch to cut out several flowers at once. (I punched the folded tissue paper 3- times to get enough flower shapes to create (2) flowers.)
  • Stack them up randomly. Use the "Take your Pick" tool with paper piercing tip and Stampin' Pierce Mat to push through all the flower layers to create a hole for a Metallic Brad. 
  • Once secure, scrunch up the layers of flower. May take several "scrunches".
  • Punch an extra flower from corrugated element piece, to use as the leaves. Adhere to bottom of tissue paper flower with glue dots

 

Sentimental Rose April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit alternate ideas by Dawn Olchefske #stampinup #paperpumpkin #cardmaking #cardkit #rubberstamping #diy #sentimentalrose

How'd She DO That? Flower card:

  1. Stamp flower image with Pool Party ink on "text" card base (from kit)
  2. Adhere scrunch flower with  glue dots to Blushing Bride cardstock cut with Story Label Punch. then to card with dimensionals.
  3. Add decorative touches with Silver Mini Sequin Trim and Pool Party/Silver Baker's Twine. 


Sentimental Rose April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit alternate ideas by Dawn Olchefske #stampinup #paperpumpkin #cardmaking #cardkit #rubberstamping #diy #sentimentalrose

How'd She DO That? Flower Box:

  1. Fold & fill Clear Tiny Treat Box.
  2. Wrap with Silver 3/8" Metallic Edge Ribbon, tie in a knot.  Attach flower to ribbon, using the brad prongs wrapped around the ribbon knot. 
  3. Add decorative touches with Silver Mini Sequin Trim and Pool Party/Silver Baker's Twine and stamped tag. 

Sentimental Rose April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit alternate card shared by Dawn Olchefske #stampinup #paperpumpkin #cardmaking #cardkit #rubberstamping #diy #sentimentalrose

And last, but not least, a card that my grandson Max (12) made for his mom.  He really wanted to use the flower/leave images and fussy cut them out.  For the flower, he inked the stamp with Flirty Flamingo and then used a Coral Calypso Stampin' Write Marker to color in the center area of the flower before stamping (I guess my stamping is rubbing off on him!).  The design is completely his own and I'm so proud of him.

It's always exciting when the Clearance Rack refreshes! 

April 2019 Stampin' Up! Clearance Rack Refresh #dostamping #clearancerack #stampinup #bargainsgalore April 2019 Stampin' Up! Clearance Rack Refresh #dostamping #clearancerack #stampinup #bargainsgalore

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

Birthday Monday: Gummy Bear Sweet Treats

Ever since I laid my eyes on the How Sweet It Is Suite of products, I knew I had to do something with Gummy Bears candy.   

I bought a bag of Haribo Gold-Bears and it's been sitting on my desk for about a month.   Before I eat the last of them (orange is my favorite flavor), I thought I better make a treat package.

  1. Stamps: Sweetest Thing
  2. Paper:
    • Daffodil Delight (3-1/2" square scored at 1-3/4" and fold over bag, and scrap for jar die) 
    • Whisper White (scraps for labels - die & punch)
    • How Sweet it is Designer Series Paper (3-1/4" x 1-1/2")
  3. Ink: Melon Mambo, Tuxedo Black Memento
  4. Other:  Big Shot, Jar of Sweets Framelits Dies, 3" x 6" Gusseted Cellophane Bags, Sweet Pins & Tags, Classic Label Punch, 1/8" Handheld Circle Punch, Whisper White Bakers Twine, Stampin' Dimensionals (and stapler to secure "fold over" piece to bag).

TreatBag-CU

The How Sweet It Is Suite is not just for yummy treat packaging, but for sending your favorite people sweet messages too.   Who wouldn't want a treat bag filled with goodies!?

Whether for parties or just thinking of you...the How Sweet It Is Suite is a treat that you can use all year-long!  Add it to your shopping bag today!

Meant to Be Sweet Cups

Oh my gosh - I'm so excited to share a fun Sweet Cup with you today!

I was shopping at Target and came across heart shaped Mini Mousse Cakes (Archer Farms) and they spoke to me! 

I haven't event eaten one yet.  It was my swap for my STARS team get-together potluck and shoebox swap that we had on Sunday.

Stampin' Up! Valentine Sweet Cups by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #stamping #diy #papercrafting #valentinetreats

It was so easy to put together and fun too!  I reached for the obvious, the All my Love Suite products.  When looking at this suite, don't forget to check out page 6 too, for the Meant To Be stamp set/bundle.

How'd She DO That? All My Love Sweet Cup:

  • Meant To Be stamp set
  • Sweet Cup
  • All My Love Designer Series Paper (for 2-7/8" Stitched Shape circle die)
  • Whisper White (scrap for Pretty Label Punch
  • Tuxedo Black Memento Ink
  • All of my Love Ribbon Combo Pack

Stampin' Up! Valentine Sweet Cups by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #stamping #diy #papercrafting #valentinetreats

DOstamping Tips:

  1. Use the 1/8" Circle Handheld Punch to cut two holes in the Sweet Cup (near each other) for the ribbon to thread through (so the ribbon stays in place)
    • NOTE:  Stampin' Up! just announced the 1/8" Circle Handheld Punch will be retiring and is currently only available while supplies last (due to the manufacturer discontinuing the product.)
  2. Thread ribbon through both holes, wrap around Sweet Cup and tie in a bow.  Slide bow all the way over to the holes (to cover them).
  3. Cut 3 pieces of tissue paper into 4" x 4" squares and place into Sweet Cup.  (I found the "valentine" colored tissue paper at Target)
  4. Place "Mini Mousse Cake" into Sweet Cup (mini cakes also found at Target)

Stampin' Up! Valentine Sweet Cups by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #stamping #diy #papercrafting #valentinetreats

I'm pretty sure any of your Valentine sweethearts will love receiving a cake filled Sweet Cup (or filled with any treat).  Add them to your shopping bag today, so they'll arrive in time for the special day!  

Enjoy~Dawn O

Come to discover, when I opened my package, I was able to spell out a couple of words like; kiss & love.  I knew right away I wanted to make some sort of window box packaging.  So, through trial and error, I came up with a cute heart shape window box using the Be Mine Stitched Framelit Dies.

How'd She DO That? tips for DIY Dove Love Notes Candy Box:

  • Use the 2-1/8" x 2-1/4" Be Mine Stitched Heart Framelit to die cut window. 
  • Adhere window sheet with glue dot in each corner.
  • Assemble box with Tear & Tape Adhesive
  • Punch 1/8" hole on each side.
  • Thread ribbon through and tie off each end.
  • Add greeting (punched with Classic Label Punch) with Whisper White Baker's Twine.
  • Fill with Dove Love Notes candy

I forgot to tell you...I'm completely in love with the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies (you had me at "stitched"!). 

When you begin to die cut with them, you'll be surprised at all of the clever cutting options there are.  It's definitely a must-have for any papercrafter!  You'll find LOTS of uses for them.  Be sure to add it to your shopping bag today, so you can get started on your Valentine and love crafting.  

Enjoy~Dawn O

Featuring DOstamperSTAR Terry Rajala

Today's stunning card was created by one of my DOstamperSTAR Team Members, Terry Rajala.  

Let me tell you a little bit about Terry.  She was a local customer of mine for many years, who attended any event/class I held.  Terry was the kind of customer who knew a lot about stamping and generously shared it with others.  She always helped someone who might have been struggling at her table and more!  For the past few years, I've been suggesting that Terry become a demonstrator and join my team, as she would be a natural.  Well...last Sale-a-Bration she joined!  And I'm so delighted to have her on my team.

Terry Rajala's Easel Calendar Card #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting 

Her card was SO stunning on the outside, that I never opened the clear envelope we use when swapping, to see the inside.  When I opened it to take a photo, "WOW" was all I could say!  I can't believe I waited so long.  Lesson learned...open the cards, there might be something special inside!  

I'm happy to share her card with you today!

Terry's Easel Calendar card:

  1. Stamps: Merry Christmas to All
  2. Paper:
    • Tranquil Tide (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base, score at 2-1/8" & 4-1/4", and scrap for punching) 
    • Whisper White  (5" x 3-375") 
    • Frosted Floral Designer Series Paper (5-1/4" x 4", 4-1/2" x 1-1/2")
  3. Ink: Tranquil Tide, Shaded Spruce Light Stampin' Blends (to color rhinestones)
  4. Other:  Big Shot, Seasonal Wreath Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Sprig Punch,  Rhinestone Basic Jewels
  5. Non-SU:  3" x 2-1/4" tear off calendar

This close-up gives you a better view of just how stunning her card is!

Below is the card open so you can see how it was decorated.  The tear-off calendar measures 3" x 2-1/4".   If you do a Google search, you'll find some options.

Terry, thank you for sharing your love of stamping with the STARS.  So glad you finally made the leap!
