Holiday Inspiration Week: Tiny Treat Box with Many Mittens Framelits Sneak Peek

Holiday Inspiration Week continues with a fun Clear Tiny Treat Box, that combines some Annual Catalog products with new products from the 2017 Holiday Catalog, coming September 1st.  

DOstamping Holiday Inspiration Week showcasing Stampin' Up! holiday products

Little known fact about me...I love to decorate packages!  I like to add handmade tags, ornaments, ribbons and doodads to made my packages look pretty.  When I saw the Green Sprigs (144627), I went giddy!!  

So, if you're anything like me, you're gonna love Stampin' Up!'s 2017 Holiday Catalog.  It's filled with lots of great holiday products for both card making and packaging!

  4. Create mitten tag from 6" x 2-1/2" piece of Whisper White Cardstock.  Fold in half and die cut large mitten shape (from coming soon, Many Mittens Framelits Dies 144672), by place "cuff" edge a smidgen past the fold.  Die cut another mitten from Be Merry Designer Series Paper and adhere to front of folded tag.  Die cut "cuff with texture piece" from Garden Green cardstock.  Adhere to mitten.  Cut hole in corner of tag with 1/8" Circle Handheld punch.  Stamp "to/from" (coming soon Smitten Mittens stamp set) on inside of tag with Garden Green ink.

Sneak Peek: Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies (coming in August)

Are you shopping in July to get Bonus Days Coupons ($5 coupon for every $50 spent)?  Yes!!  Are you wondering what you're going to spend your $5 coupon(s) on in August (when you can redeem them)?  

Here's a sneak peek at one of two new items that will be available on August 1st...Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies (the Carols of Christmas stamp set will also be available too and in a Bundle - both a sneak peek from the upcoming Holiday Catalog).

Stampin' Up! Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies coming August 1, 2017 #dostamping

As a Minnesota gal, the Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies are a must for me as they include a deer and two tree images to choose from, as well as 8 other shapes for the holidays.  (My official "measurement" graphic will be available in August for you.)

Stampin' Up! Thailand Incentive Trip Wallet #dostamping

As many of you know...I'm currently on the trek home from the Stampin' Up! Thailand Incentive Trip.  It will take a couple of travel days and I plan to be back in my office on Wednesday.  I brought a few treats for some of my international friends, a little "sweet" from Minnesota...Nut Goodie.  Of course I needed to package them up in a special way and here's what I came up with using the Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies.

Stampin' Up! Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies Candy Slider pouch by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping

Minnesota Hello Candy Slider

  1. Score 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" piece of Garden Green cardstock at 1/2" and 4".  Fold on score lines.  Place Tear & Tape adhesive along 1/2" edge
  2. Before assembling...adhere 2" x 8" strip of Be Merry Designer Series Paper to scored piece (not over the Tear & Tape).   
  3. Refold and place another strip of Tear & Tape adhesive one of the "bottom" 4" sections (this will secure the bottom of the package).  Adhere edges together, them bottom.
  4. Cut a hole at the top of the package using 1/8" Handheld Circle Punch.  NOTE:  punch through both sides.  
  5. Wrap about 24" of 3/8" Crumb Cake Classic Weave Ribbon around candy (from top to bottom and back up) and slide into the card sleeve.  Thread "back" ribbon through back hole and "front" ribbon through front hole and tie together in a bow.
  6. To open:  pull up on the ribbon and the candy slides out...yum!

It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge.  This week we're having a "Home Sweet Home" challenge.  

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #237-Home Sweet Home #dostamping

So many things came to mind for today's inspiration photo...flag, Jar of Love stamp set, Swirly Scribbles Thinlets, etc.  However, I was at Walmart last week and found some patriotic candy.  I just had to create a cute packaging for it and here's what I came up with using the Wood Words Bundle with Wood Crate Frameltis

Stampin' Up! patriotic Wood Words Bundle craft by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC237 #dostamping

Patriotic Wood Crate:

  1. Use Wood Crate Framelits Dies to cut two wood crates out of 11" x 4-/4" piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock.
  2. Before assembling, stamp "stars" (Wood Words stamp set) onto crate pieces with Real Red & Dapper Denim ink.  Stamp "mini stars" under the crate "handles" with Real Red ink.
  3. Assemble with Tear & Tape Adhesive
  4. Stamp greeting on white cardstock with Dapper Denim ink.  Die cut with tag shape.
  5. Fill 3" x 6" Gusseted Cello Bag with candy kisses.  Tie off with Cherry Cobbler 1/4" Double-Stitched Ribbon.  Then add tag with Dapper Denim Baker's Twine.  
  6. Die cut 3 stars (Dapper Denim, Silver Glimmer & Real Red).  Adhere stars together with Glue Dots, then adhere to "candy stick" or skewer with glue dots.  Tuck stick under ribbon.

Control Freaks Jan 2017 Tour: Love Pocket Card and Candy Sleeve

Control Freaks Tour Badge - Dawn Olchefske #dostamping

Welcome to the Control Freaks January 2017. We are thrilled to have you join us the 20th of each month. Our tour features some of your favorite Control Freaks Stampers sharing projects made with Stampin' Up! products. In fact, you may have just come from the always creative, Wendy Weixler's blog.

Our theme for this month is: Occasions or Sale-a-Bration...I chose both!


So In Love Bundle

Stampin' Up! So In Love Bundle (2017 Occasions Catalog) & Delicate Details (Sale-a-Bration) card by Dawn Olchefske for Control Freak Blog Tour #dostamping

I created this lovely pocket card for my niece, Lindsey's wedding a couple of weeks ago.  I used Sweet Sugarplum because that was one of her colors.  I wanted something that would hold a gift card and I love the way it turned out.

So In Love Pocket Card

  1. Score 11" x 4-1/4" Sweet Sugarplum cardstock at 1-1/4" x 5-1/2".  Fold into pocket shape and adhere down the top 1-1/4" flap, then adhere 4-1/4" x 1" strip of Falling In Love Designer Series Paper to the flap.
  2. Stamp "lace" image (FREE Sale-a-Bration Delicate Details stamp set) with Sweet Sugarplum ink, just below the flap.
  3. Wrap gold Metallic Ribbon (FREE Sale-a-Bration choice) around the entire card (this keeps it closed) and tie in a knot
  4. Stamp "so in love" image (So In Love stamp set) with Sweet Sugarplum ink on scrap of whisper white.  Die cut with Tags & Labels Framelits Dies.
  5. Punch 1/8" hole at top of tag. Thread several piece of Gold Metallic Thread through tag hole and tie onto ribbon knot. 

Stampin' Up! So In Love Bundle (2017 Occasions Catalog) & Delicate Details (Sale-a-Bration) card by Dawn Olchefske for Control Freak Blog Tour #dostamping

For the inside, I created a clever little pocket using the So Detailed Thinlits to hold a gift card

Gift Card Holder 

  1. Slide 5-1/4" x 3-1/2" piece of Shimmery White Cardstock into the completed pocket card (from above).  Make a small mark with a pencil to mark where to stamp the greeting.  Pull out panel and stamp greeting (So In Love stamp set) with Sweet Sugarplum ink.  Let dry and erase pencil mark.
  2. Die cut 6" x 3" piece of Sweet Sugarplum cardstock using So Detailed Thinlits (Big Shot & Precision Plate, remove excess pieces with Big Shot Brush). 
  3. Place stamped white panel over floral die cut - center it side to side.  Use Bone Folder and score the floral piece along the left & right edges of the white panel.  Fold floral piece along the score lines.  Add Fast Fuse Adhesive to only the bottom strip of the floral piece and adhere to the front/bottom of the panel.  Fold edges over each side and adhere in back.  (I did add a little bit of Fine Tip Glue to the back pieces of the floral piece, so the edges would stay down.)
  4. Insert a Gift Card into the floral pocket, then insert completed panel into pocket card. 

Sealed With Love Bundle

Stampin' Up Sealed With Love Candy Sleeve by Dawn Olchefske for Control Freaks Blog Tour #dostamping

These darling candy sleeves will be just perfect for the upcoming Valentine's Day.  They are quick to put together and you can change out the greeting to anything you want.  Give them to co-workers, teachers, your husband, etc.  They will be thrilled that you thought of them!

Valentine Candy Sleeve

  1. Insert candy into 2" x 8" Cellophane Bag and tie off with Silver Metallic Ribbon (FREE Sale-a-Bration choice).
  2. Die cut the following and adhere together with the Fine Tip Glue Pen:
    • Sweet Sugarplum "slotted heart" & Silver Glimmer Paper arrow using Love Notes Framelits Dies.
    • Whisper White heart (#3) from Sweet & Sassy Framelits
  3. Stamp greeting (Sealed with Love stamp set) with Sweet Sugarplum ink on scrap of white cardstock.  Cut with Classic Label Punch. 
  4. Punch 1/16" hole in both the heart and label pieces. Thread Whisper White Baker's twine through holes and tie onto the metallic ribbon.
  5. Give away to someone you love!

Greetings From Santa: Candy Jar

I haven't been doing much shopping yet, as I can only tolerate it for a short time with my knee replacement.  But I needed to get some ink for my printer.  So off to the office store, where I discovered small old fashion style canning jars.  I can't resist unique styled jars.  Plus the lids were different colors...fun!  I knew I could find a use for them and here's what I came up with using the Jolly Hat Builder Punch and Greetings From Santa stamp set.

Greetings from Santa candy jar created by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping

Greetings From Santa Candy Jar

  1. Stamp greeting (from Greetings From Santa stamp set) with Real Red ink on scrap of Whisper White.  Cut with 2" Circle Punch.
  2. Create Santa hat using Jolly Hat Builder Punch, Real Red cardstock and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper (and glue dots).  
  3. Adhere hat to circle with Stampin' Dimensionals, then adhere completed circle to jar lid with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  4. Wrap Candy Candy Lane Baker's Twine around lid and tie in a bow.
  5. Fill jar with candy.  I used five Lindt Lindor Truffles (my favorite holiday candy!)

Greetings from Santa candy jar created by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping

I found the jars at my local Office Max...on clearance.

Say Thank You with Stampin' Up! Paisleys & Posies Bundle

I'm in need of some quick, but cute thank you cards and this monochromatic Paisleys & Posies Bundle card & treat will fit the bill.  

You see, exactly 3-weeks ago I had knee replacement surgery.  I have to admit...the first 2 weeks were incredibly painful.  But this past week I felt like I was turning a corner.  And at physical therapy yesterday, I passed a milestone and was able to bend my knee 90 degrees.  Oh my gosh...I worked hard to get there.  I still have a lot of work to do, but I started working part time this week and discovered I can only tolerate sitting at my desk for about 60-90 minutes at a time.  I hope by the end of 6-weeks I'll be back full-time.  

I do have a lot of people to thank...people lent me equipment, sent over meals, beautiful flowers, my fabulous virtual assistant and oh my...all of the lovely cards I received in the mail. 

Stampin' Up! Paisley & Posies Bundle card created by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping

This project features the Petals & Paisleys Designer Series Paper.  The beauty of use this paper, is there is a matching 3/8" Ribbon Trio Pack and you could choose most any of the paper designs and create a lovely monochromatic design.  I chose Rich Razzleberry.

HSDT Video: Cherry Lollies Treat Pouch

I have the cutest little treat pouch to share with you today AND a How'd She DO That? video too! 

Cherry Lollies Treat Pouch

Cherry Lollies Treat Pouch created by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup

These treats pouches were a little gift for my downline and friends at the April 2016 On Stage event a few weeks ago.  I've had the Cherry Lollies for several month and haven't had a chance to make anything with them yet.  I knew I'd pair them with the Apple of My Eye stamp set (retiring May 31st).  But wasn't sure exactly what I would make with them.  The pouch idea came together the night before I left, at midnight (that's when I do my best work - ha!).  Luckily there wasn't too much trial and error with measuring and in no time at all, I cranked out ten cute little Cherry Lollies Treat Pouches.   They were a big hit!

Oh my gosh...wasn't that cute?!  I also envisioned treat pouches for jellied fruit slices...that would be cute too!  Great for Mother's Day, co-worker treats, year-end treats for teachers and coaches, and more.  Have fun making your own treat pouches.

  Stampin' Up! Annual & Occasions Catalog Retiring List #dostamping

Before the new catalog can come out, we have to make room for it by saying good bye to retiring products from the Occasions Catalog and Annual Catalog retiring lists:

NOTE:  All "current bundles are being discontinued (even ones not listed on the retiring list).  You'll notice that some of the current bundle products are also not listed on the retired list.  Those "unlisted" individual products will carryover into the new catalog, but will not be available in a bundle.  So take advantage of bundle savings and get your bundles today before they are gone!  (If you have any questions about a specific product, feel free me to contact me).
