DOstamping Tips:

  1. Create your own background paper by collaging images.
  2. Pick out three images and three colors.
  3. Stamp one image at a time, randomly all over the white panel.  Then move on to each image/color until your paper is filled as desired. 
  4. Stamp-off some images to varying the colors (like the pumpkin image)
  5. Don't forget about the Holiday Rhinestones - there's lots of colors to coordinate with a variety of projects!

The Banners For You is not just for Halloween.  It also includes images for fall, Thanksgiving, Christmas & Valentine's Day, making it a very versatile set.  PLUS it's bundled with my favorite new punch, Banner's Pick a Punch!!

Stampin' Up! Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper Herringbone card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #herringbone

Herringbone is a pattern made up of rows of parallel lines which in any two adjacent rows slope in opposite directions.  Mine wasn't done is the traditional way. But it turned out fun!

Stampin' Up! Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper Herringbone card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #herringbone

DOstamping Tips:

  • Cover the 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" panel with Stampin' Seal + (or use Adhesive Sheets #152334)
  • Cut a variety of patterns in widths varying from 1/4" to 5/8".
  • Start by laying 1-3 strips down in a diagonal direction (as shown above).  The strips will hang off the sides of the panel.  Just trim off to the edge with a scissors.
  • Continue by laying down strips perpendicular to the first strips and trim to edge of panel.  Repeat in various perpendicular directions until the panel is completely covered.  Make sure all edges are trimmed off nicely.

Gilded Autumn Suite Week Day 4: Fun with Designer Series Paper

Today is Day 4 of  Gilded Autumn Suite Week.   Today I have two cards with the same layout, but have completely different looks.

Stampin' Up! Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #quickandcute

These quick & cute (QC) cards let the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper be the star!

How'd She DO That? Hey There cards:

  • Stamps/Bundles: Beautiful Autumn Bundle (Save 10%)
  • Paper:
    • Early Espresso or Mint Macaron (4-1/4" x 11" card base) 
    • Cajun Craze or Brushed Metallic  (scraps for punch shapes)
    • Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper (four of 3/4" x 4" strips for each card)
    • Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper (3/4" x 4" strip of "speckled crumb cake" pattern for each card, for sentiment)
  • Ink: Early Espresso
  • Other:  Autumn Punch Pack, Linen Thread, Stampin' Seal, Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals

Stampin' Up! Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #quickandcute

DOstamping Tips:

  • Stamp the sentiment on the "speckled crumb cake" patterned strip first.
  • Start by adhering the center strip first and work upwards, then downwards.  NOTE:  the sentiment strip is adhere with Stampin' Dimensionals - optional.
  • Wrap linen thread around card front twice and tie in a bow.
  • Finish off with an Autumn Punch Pack shape - adhere with Stampin' Dimensional.

Stampin' Up! Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #quickandcute

I have to admit...I had an "oopsie" with this card.  The sentiment was stamped crookedly.  So instead of discarding it - I adhere it down.  Then stamped it again on a slightly narrower piece (5/8" x 4") and popped that one up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  In the end, I think it was a happy accident, as I really like the look of it better.

I  like the way both of these cards turned out:

  • The Early Espresso card shows off the colors of the pattern paper. 
  • The Mint Macaron card is a soft and elegant card. 
  • Which one to you like?

Here's a closer look at the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper
