SO...if you see babies (grandbabies), or concerts for your little stars in the future, you'll want to order Twinkle Twinkle Suite products before they are gone, or before the Bundle and SAVE price disappear. 

Well, that wraps up this stop of the tour. I hope you enjoyed my Goodbye to Old Friends projects!  Now on to more creative inspiration from my friend, Julie Davison.

Everything is Rosy Day 4: Triple Time Stamping & FB Live Replay

For Day 4 of  Everything is Rosy Product Medley, I have a couple of cards for you using the Triple Time Stamping Technique.

Triple Time Stamping with the Everything is Rosy Product Medley kit (available May 2019 only) shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #cardmaking #papercrafting #everythingisrosy #tripletimestamping

The trick for Triple Time Stamping is to stamp all three of the white panels at the same time, by "stacking" them on top of each other.  Then add a mat for each layer and adhere together on the card re-aligning images.

How'd She DO That? tips for Triple Time Stamping Rosy card:

  • Product Medley: Everything is Rosy
  • Paper:
    • Night of Navy (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base) 
    • Whisper White (2" x 3-1/4", 3" x 4-1/4"and 4" x 5-1/4")
    • Rose Gold Foil (from kit) (2-1/4" x 3-1/2", 3-1/4" x 4-1/2")
  • Ink: Melon Mambo, Night of Navy, Balmy Blue (note: flower center & pink leaf is Melon Mambo stamped-off)
  • Other:  Ribbon & label (from kit), Snail & Stampin' Dimensionals

Triple Time Stamping with the Everything is Rosy Product Medley kit (available May 2019 only) shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #cardmaking #papercrafting #everythingisrosy #tripletimestamping

Take a closer look...the flower center & pink leaf are Melon Mambo ink stamped-off first.

 

Triple Time Stamping with the Everything is Rosy Product Medley kit (available May 2019 only) shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #cardmaking #papercrafting #everythingisrosy #tripletimestamping

After making the first card, I challenged myself to make a masculine card with the Everything is Rosy Product Medley

Can you tell what's different?  There isn't the small top layer.  Let's call it, Double Time Stamping.

How'd She DO That? tips for Double Time Stamping Leaf card:

  • Product Medley: Everything is Rosy
  • Stamps: A Good Man (coming June 4)
  • Paper:
    • Night of Navy (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base, and 3-1/4" x 4-1/2") 
    • Crumb Cake (3" x 4-1/4"and 4" x 5-1/4")
  • Ink: Night of Navy, Crumb Cake
  • Other:  Tailored Tag Punch, Nature's Twine, Snail & Stampin' Dimensionals


Triple Time Stamping with the Everything is Rosy Product Medley kit (available May 2019 only) shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #cardmaking #papercrafting #everythingisrosy #tripletimestamping

Take a closer look...the leaf on the sentiment piece was stamped with Crumb Cake.  The sentiment is from A Good Man stamp set, coming June 4.

I was excited that I could create a masculine card with the Everything is Rosy Product Medley - as it gives it even more versatility!

Everything is Rosy Day 3: Flip It Cards

Today I have 4 Quick & Cute (QC) "Flip It" cards to share with you.

4 Flip It cards made with the Everything is Rosy Product Medley kit (available May 2019 only) shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #cardmaking #papercrafting #everythingisrosy #flipitcards 

What is a Flip It card?  Good question.  I've probably been doing them for years, but never realized there was a name for it until I saw Karen Titus share a quick demo of it at CentreStage last month.  Oh my gosh, Flip It is the perfect name.

How'd She DO That? Flip It cards:

  1. Cut Designer Series Paper to 4" x 5-1/4"
  2. Cut that piece into two pieces - ie: cut in half or cut one third/two thirds.  (I cut mine at 1-1/2")
  3. Then... here's the "trick"...FLIP one of your pieces over.  Yes, that's it!
  4. Adhere both pieces to the front of your card, add a sentiment and decorate as desired.

These cards came together in no time at all.   

  • The sentiment labels, tag & die cut flowers were included in the kit, 
  • along with both ribbons (which I love!), 
  • 6x6 Designer Series Paper and rose gold foil, 
  • and...I almost forgot,  mirror embellishments used on the last card.

I can't decide which card is my favorite.  But I'm leaning towards the "birthday tag" card (love the bold flowers).  How about you...which one is your favorite?

If you're looking for quick & cute cards, definitely try "Flip It" cards with your Everything is Rosy Product Medley kit.

Farewell Lovely As A Tree

What can I say...I'll definitely be missing the Lovely as a Tree when it officially retires June 3rd. 

Did you know...it is 18 years old?  The longest running stamp set.  It's timeless tree images will fill any landscape and keep you in tune with nature.  They're great for watercoloring, stamping techniques and more.

Lovely as a Tree Stamp Set

 

As I take a stroll down memory lane, I'm reminded of how I developed as a stamper, card maker, photographer, as well as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  We all start at the beginning, but we don't always realized how far we've come.

Lovely as a Tree - Clear Block Shadow Background Technique

 

Stampin' Up! Lovely as a Tree - Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup

Lovely as a Tree Embossed Resist Glitter: 

TIPS before starting: 

  1. Mix Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder and Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter together to get a glittery embossing powder.
  2.  Create "masking template": 
    • Temporarily adhere a 2-3/8"  x 4" piece of scrap cardstock in the very center of a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of scrap cardstock (I used crumb cake). 
    • Trace around it, then remove it.  Use the tracing lines to cut out the center of the cardstock. 
    • Now the crumb cake piece will have a "window" for you to use for stamping and sponging.

Lovely as a Tree - Versamark Resist 

Tips for best results:

  1. Use Glossy Paper (retiring)
  2. Stamp images with Versamark Ink.
  3. Brayer or sponge ink over entire piece of stamped glossy paper.  Versamark stamped images will resist the ink.
  4. Optional:  add additional stamped images with another color.

Saying Farewell to Stampin' Up!s Lovely as a Tree shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting

Last, but not least, here's a Lovely as a Tree blast from the past (2005).   Not only does this card remind me of my earlier days, but reminds of where I  started with my stamping, as I had only been stamping for a couple of years by then. 

This card was created prior to starting my blog.  At the time, I was sharing my creations on the Splitcoaststampers online community.  I actually used a scanner to "capture" my cards and then uploaded them to the community.  I've come a long way since then.  To a camera, then added a photo tent, then upgraded my camera and now use my phone.  

Lovely as a Tree - Multicolored Heat Embossing

  1. Stamp tree with Versamark ink.
  2. Then sprinkle various colors of embossing powders in specific areas.  Just take a pinch for each area.
  3. When removing the excess - don't put it back in the embossing powder jars, as all of the colors will be mixed together. 
  4. Melt with heat tool and watch your creation come to life!

If you do own the Lovely as a Tree stamp set, I hope you enjoy this retirement showcase.  

If you don't have the Lovely as a Tree stamp set, you'll want to get it now, before it's gone.  As you can see from above, there is so much you can do with it!

Enjoy~Dawn O

Everything is Rosy Product Medley Day 2: #DOswts314 Collar Fold

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts314.  This week we're showcasing Collar Fun Fold cards! 

Stamping with the STARS Collar Fun Fold inspiration hop #DOswts314 #dostamperstars #papercrafting #stamping #cardmaking #funfolds Everything is Rosy Product Medley Collar Fun Fold card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup  #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting, #DOswts314 #funfold #dostamperstars

I knew right away I would be using the Everything is Rosy Product Medley for today's challenge. 

Immediately I was drawn to the light pink paper with small flower bunches.  It reminded of the dresses I used to put my daughters in when they were little.  I thought it might be fun to decorate the collar area to give the impression of a dress.

How'd She DO That? Everything is Rosy Collar Fun Fold card:

  • Product Medley: Everything is Rosy (stamp set, dies, DSP, mirror embellishments)
  • Paper:
    • Balmy Blue (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base) 
    • Whisper White (scraps for stamping & die cutting)
    • Designer Series Paper (4" x 5-1/4")
  • Ink: Night of Navy, Melon  Mambo
  • Other:  Big Shot, Pearlized Doilies & Stampin' Dimensionals

Everything is Rosy Product Medley Collar Fun Fold card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup  #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting, #DOswts314 #funfold #dostamperstars

Collar Fun Fold Tips:

  • At the middle of a long edge of 4" x 5-1/4" DSP, use scissors to cut in towards center about 2"  (experiment on scrap paper as needed)
  • Fold each side away from the cut edge.  I kept about a 3/4" edge at the top of each side (again, experiment as needed)
  • Adhere to folded card base, and stamp greeting.
  • Cut a doily in half, adhere under each "flap".  Then adhere each flap down with a Stampin' Dimensional.
  • Decorate with flower die cuts

DOstamping Tips:

  • On Whisper White cardstock, stamp large flower with Melon Mambo and large leaf with Night of Navy.
  • Ink smaller flower with Melon Mambo, stamp off on scratch paper, then onto Whisper White.  Repeat.  Stamp small dots with Night of Night.
  • Die cut all images with matching shapes.  
  • Arrange around collar and adhere with Stampin' Dimensionals and glue dots.
  • Finish off with mirror embellishment

I had so much fun with the Collar Fun Fold.  I know I'll be trying it again.  Have fun creating your own Collar Fun Fold cards and playing with the Everything is Rosy Product Medley!

Enjoy~Dawn O

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
