Last of my Bone Appetit Paper Pumpkin kit alternative samples!

Here's the last of my Bone Appetit Paper Pumpkin alternative samples.  Plus a couple more from my fabulous DOstamperSTARS team.

4 Bone Appetit Paper Pumpkin kit alternative ideas shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #papercrafting  #craftkitsinthemail

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!

Happy Halloween Dancing Skeleton  Card

This card couldn't be easier to do.  With just a few extra supplies, you'll have your skeletons dancing in no time at all!

  1. Adhere 1-1/4" x 5-1/4 Whisper White piece to folded 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" Gorgeous Grape card base
  2. Assemble tags, add Nature's Twine, then adhere to card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  3. Stamp sentiment with Tuxedo Black Memento ink on label die cut.  Adhere with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals (tuck under the arms)

 

Paper Pumpkin September Bone Appetit Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #halloween

Happy Halloween Spider Web card

For this card, I cut open two of the treat boxes - one of each pattern.  The easiest way to do that is to trim off the top and bottom of the box.

  • On to 2-7/8" x 4-1/8" piece of Pumpkin Pie, adhere treat box pieces measuring 3/4" x 3-7/8" (top), 1-1/4" x 3-7/8" (bottom).
  • Adhere 3/4" x 4-5/8" strip of Basic Black between the 2 box pieces.  Then adhere to folded 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" Gorgeous Grape card base.
  • Assemble tags, add Nature's Twine, then adhere to card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Stamp sentiment with Tuxedo Black Memento ink on label die cut,  and adhere with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.

A Paper Pumpkin Thing August Blog Hop: Gift of Fall

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 August 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Gift of Fall.

Now onto my Paper Pumpkin Gift of Fall alternative projects...

Grateful Family QC Card

Paper Pumpkin August Gift of Fall Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

If you like quick & cute cards AND prefer full-sized cards, this one is for you!

DOstamping Tips for Grateful Family QC card:

  • Trim the front panel from the Gift of Fall Add-On ombre card to 2-1/4" x 4".  Adhere to 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" folded Thick Whisper White card base. 
  • SAVE your "negative" die sheets (don't throw them away).  Use the Sprig & Leaf Punches to cut a variety of shapes and colors.
  • Adhere die cuts and punched shapes to behind stamped sentiment label, and adhere to card with dimensionals.

 

Thanksgiving Treat Envelope

Paper Pumpkin August Gift of Fall Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #treatholder

Since I used one of the Gift of Fall Add-on Note Cards, I had a leftover envelope.  With such a pretty envelope, I knew I had to make something sweet! 

How'd She DO That? Treat Envelope 

  • For Treat Tag: 
    • Cut 2" x 3-1/2" piece of Crushed Curry with Scallop Tag Topper Punch. 
    • Thread twine through hole.  Adhere candy with glue dots.  
  • For Treat Envelope: 
    • With envelope closed (but not sealed), from the back side fold the sides over and into the center (like a gate-fold).  Reopen envelope and trim away the top corners of the flap.  See photo below. 
    • Stamp sentiment in the center panel.  Slide treat tag into center section of treat holder
    • Fold sides back into the center and flap down.  Wrap seam binding ribbon around flap and tie in a bow. 
    • Stamp "enjoy" on white side of narrow label.  Fold over at about 1-1/2" and adhere with a glue dot.  Create small hole with Take Your Pick Tool and Stampin' Pierce Mat.  Attach tag to ribbon with thread and tie in a bow.

Thanksgiving Wreath Tag

Paper Pumpkin August Gift of Fall Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin

Here's probably my favorite Gift of Fall project...a handmade wreath.  ALL of the items used to create this project are from the kit.  No extra supplies needed!

How'd She DO That? Thanksgiving Wreath Tag

  • Gently remove the handles from a bag.  (You only need one per wreath)
  • Soften up the handle with your hands so it is more pliable.  
  • Shape into a circle approximately 1-1/2" to 1-3/4" wide.  Then use the long end to "weave" it in and around until it meets back where you started.  Use glue dots to "seal" the ends together (reshape as necessary).
  • Use glue dots to adhere leaves (I placed them where the ends met). 
  • Then use 3-pieces of twine, wrap around wreath over leaves and tie in a bow.  Finish off with a sequin
  • Place several glue dots on back of wreath to adhere to stamped tag.

Paper Pumpkin August Gift of Fall Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin

I had SO much fun creating with the Gift of Fall Paper Pumpkin kit.  I still haven't yet put the kit away.  But I think my favorite part about this month's kit is the Gift of Fall Add-On Note Cards & Envelopes.  With SO many leftovers from the kit, there was plenty to play with to create fabulous cards.

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

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

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.

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)

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

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop: To You and Yours Nov 2018 Holiday Acetate Gift Box

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

Welcome to the A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop! 

I'm excited to join this talented group of stampers to share alternate ideas for Paper Pumpkin Kits.  Today we're sharing the November 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit - To You and Yours.

Nov 2018 Paper Pumpkin To You and Yours Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #toyouandyours #simplestamping

The Holiday Paper Pumpkin kit always one of my favorites that I look forward to receiving and this year's "To You and Yours" didn't disappoint.  I'm sharing a quick & cute Holiday Acetate Gift Box.     

On Tuesday, my Stamping Club Members made this box using the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper and thought that it might look nice with this month's Paper Pumpkin kit.  Again, I started with the patterned paper on the inside of the envelope (my favorite!)  See the instructions below...

How'd She DO That? Holiday Acetate Gift Box:

  1. Cut an Acetate Card Box in half at 4"  (this will make two boxes).
  2. Create Insert using a card base from the kit. 
    • Cut a 5-5/8" x 2-7/8" piece (don't worry where the score line lands). 
    • With 5-5/8" side against straight edge of trimmer, score at 3-1/4", 3-7/8" and 4-1/2". 
    • Ignoring the original score line - fold on score lines and insert into box
  3. Create cover using an envelope from the kit. 
    • Cut a 4-3/8" x 5" patterned piece.
    • With 5" side against straight edge of trimmer, score at 3" x 3-5/8". 
    • Fold on score lines and insert into box. 
    • TIP: I like to tuck the back piece to rest between the box and the closed lid.  Or you can put a couple glue dots on the back as well.
  4. Wrap completed box with twine from kit and tie in a bow - position it at the lower front of the box.  Put one dimensional over the twine near the bottom of the fold-over flap.
  5. Stamp greeting on a label from the kit.  Adhere one leaf to back, then adhere to fold-over flap with two dimensionals (one in each upper corner).  

Nov 2018 Paper Pumpkin To You and Yours Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #toyouandyours #simplestampingCreate two Mini Cards/Tags:

  1. Cut two 3" x 6" pieces of Very Vanilla cardstock.  Fold in half.
  2. Stampin greeting.  Stamp leaves with Garden Green ink (one stamped-off)
  3. Add sequin from kit.
  4. Use as gift card or tags.

Nov 2018 Paper Pumpkin To You and Yours Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #toyouandyours #simplestamping

Candy Bar Wrap (a small Hershey's Chocolate Bar). :

  • You should have a scrap leftover from the card base.  Cut down to 2-7/8" x 2-1/2".
  • Wrap tightly around the card, "creasing the edges" as you go around.
  • Adhere ends together on the back with glue dots.

I hope you enjoyed this fun Holiday Acetate Gift Box.  They make for great last minute gifts or for co-workers, teachers, etc.

Next stop on our blog hop is Candy Ford.  See the full list below. 

Enjoy~Dawn O

Welcome to Toil & Trouble Suite Week Day 5: Double Treats!!

Stampin' Up! Toil & Trouble Suite Week from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #halloween #packagingideas #spidercider

For day #5 of Toil & Trouble Suite week, I have a couple of treats for you!  A quick and easy Spider Candy Wrap and a darling Pumpkin Takeout Treat Box!

Stampin' Up! Toil & Trouble Suite Week -Day 5 Double Treats from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #halloween #packagingideas #takeouttreatbox

I found some Peppermint Patties Candy with spider packaging at my local grocery store (Cub Foods) and immediately thought of the Cauldron Bubble Bundle.   This little "spider wrap" took no time at all.  You could make a whole pack of them and you'll be done before you know it!  Great for Halloween parties, co-workers, teachers and more! 

How'd She DO That? tips for Spider Candy Wrap:

  • Stamps: Cauldron Bubble
  • Paper:
    • Highland Heather (2" x 5-1/2" card base, score at 2-5/8" & 2-7/8") 
    • Lemon Lime Twist, Pumpkin Pie & Whisper White (scraps)
    • Gorgeous Grape (2" x  1/4")
    • Black Foil Sheets (2-1/4" square)
  • Ink: Tuxedo Black Memento 
  • Other:  Big Shot, Cauldron Framelits Dies, 1/8" Circle Handheld Punch, Spider Trinkets, Basic Black Solid Baker's Twine, Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets (for web), Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Tip:  I discovered the greeting fits on the ghost image for a fun shaped greeting!  (stamp first, then die cut)

Stampin' Up! Toil & Trouble Suite Week -Day 5 Double Treats from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #halloween #packagingideas #takeouttreatbox

How'd She DO That? tips for Pumpkin Takeout Treat Box:

  • Stamps: Cauldron Bubble
  • Paper:
    • Pumpkin Pie (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" piece will die cut 2 Takeout Box pieces)
    • Thick Whisper White (1/4" x 2-1/4" banner)
    • Window Sheet (approx 2" square - trim as needed)
    • Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper (cut out pumpkin)
  • Ink: Tuxedo Black Memento, Pumpkin Pie (for sponging)
  • Other: Big Shot, Take Out Thinlits Dies, Call Me Clover 1/8" Grosgrain Ribbon (to tie off candy bag), Leaf Ribbon, Linen Thread, 2" x 8" Cellophane Bag, Stampin' Dimensionals, Glue Dots, Tear n Tape
  • Non-Stampin' Up!: Gold Paper Straw (Target), Reeces Pieces
  • Tips:
    • Cut off 1" of the straw and place on a dimensional, then adhere to one of the box tops.  Then wrap Linen Tread around dimensional to hide.  
    • To make the linen thread look like "vines", dip in Liquid Starch and wrap around a "sucker stick" to curl them a bit.

That's a wrap for the DOstamping Toil & Trouble Suite week.  I hope you enjoyed all of the Halloween projects.  If you missed any, check out the list below.

 You'll want to add Toil & Trouble Suite projects to your shopping bag today, so you can make this week's creations and be ready by Halloween!  

Enjoy~Dawn O
