Big Day Control Freak Swap

Control Freaks Blog Tour Feb 2015 Sale-a-Bration Big Day & Best Year Ever card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup 

This was my Control Freak Sale-a-Bration card swap.  I was waiting for just the right time to share and today is the day!  It actually looks great with several of the patterns from the Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper (free Sale-a-Bration choice).

The DSP has a window cut-out using the Label Framelits.  Be sure to save the cut out, as I'll show you how I used it on my next card below.

Big Day Cake

Control Freaks Blog Tour Feb 2015 Sale-a-Bration Big Day & Best Year Ever card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup 

Here's where I used the Label Framelit cut-out (leftover from the card above). I had the focal point of this card put together for several weeks.  But for some reason, the rest of the card just wasn't coming together.  Then it hit me...try a Z-Fold.  Then in minutes - the rest of the card came together - love that when that happens.  

Control Freaks Blog Tour Feb 2015 Sale-a-Bration Big Day & Best Year Ever card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup

A Z-Fold can be made with any size card by folding the front of the card back towards the fold, like shown in the photo.  Do you see the Z?

Stamp Stock & Save: Last Day to Choose Happiness at 20% off

 Don't forget...Stamp Stock & Save sale ends today at 11:50pm (MT) tonight.  See details below and stock up tonight!

Here's one of the stamp sets on sale for 20% off, Choose Happiness...

#dostamping #stampinup  #stampinup #stampstocksave #choosehappiness #cardmaking #holidaycards #blendabilities

Every since I saw this stamp set, I wanted to create a holiday card with the leaves image.  I stamped the leaves from Choose Happiness with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, colored with Blendabilities, then sponged the edges (that's what makes this card pop, the sponging).

I used all three shades of Old Olive Blendabilities to color the leaves.  

  • Light at the tip of the leaves
  • Dark at the bottom of the leaves
  • Medium in middle to blend the two together.  

Color Rhinestone Jewels with the Cherry Cobble Blendabilities Marker (dark) before adding to the card.

Just another way to use the Choose Happiness stamp set.  Change out the greeting and you have a Thinking of You, Sympathy, etc. 

Get yours today at 15% off!

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #093: For the Birds

It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge!  This week it's a Color challenge.

#cardmaking #dawnolchefske #diy #dostamping #papercrafting #stampinup #thursdaychallenge #colorchallenge #DSC093 #dostampingstars #forthebirds #blendabilities #sweettaffe

#cardmaking #dawnolchefske #diy #dostamping #papercrafting #stampinup #thursdaychallenge #colorchallenge #DSC093 #dostampingstars #forthebirds #blendabilities #sweettaffe

These colors remind me of a bright summer's day.  So I reach for the "For the Birds" stamp set and pulled-out the adorable wagon image.  Quickly added color with Stampin' Blendabilities Markers.  And when I say quick - I mean quick.  These markers are SO easy to use, especially for basic coloring.  I am not an artistic colorer, but I'm feeling like these markers were made for people like.  Just grab and color, and viola - done.  Quick and Cute!

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Each month on our private DOstamperSTARS facebook group, we feature one person as our guestSTAR. This past month, Robyn Rasset was our guest.  She shared several projects featuring the new Stampin' Blendabilities Markers.  Take a look at some of her fabulous projects...

Sweet Briar Rose

Coloring Embossing with Blendabilities

Robyn's Tips for Blendabilities and Heat Embossed Images & Pearls:

  • Heat emboss the Sweet Briar Rose (133806) stamp (with White Embossing Powder), then use the StampinBlendabilities Markers to color the embossing.  Just run the tip of the marker over the embossing to give it a sheen of color.
  • Use StampinBlendabilities Markers to color Basic Pearl Jewels for a glossy colorized look.
  • Click here for more details

Blended Bloom

Hamburger Box Blended Blooms Close Up

Isn't Robyn's Blended Bloom (135906) flower dropped-jaw gorgeous?!  Find more details on Robyn's Blog here.

Be sure to check out more of Robyn's Stampin' Blendabilities Marker Projects:

Didn't she do a fabulous job?  I never knew you could color heat embossed images with Blendabilities.  I can't wait to give it a try myself.  Thank you Robyn for sharing your talent with us!
