Stampin' Up! Perennial Flower Punch Tips shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup #papercrafting #punchart

DOstamping TIPS:

  • If you're looking for "fuller-looking" Perennial Flowers:
    • Cut part way into the petals of one flower (as outlined in photo above), then "weave" it into the second flower.
  • For unique textured leaves:
    • Fold 2" of Pretty Peacock 1/2" Scalloped Linen Ribbon in half (secure with a glue dot), then adhere to back of flower with glue dots 
  • Adhere flowers to card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Don't forget to finish off with Perennial Essence Floral Centers (they're awesome!)

Quick & Cute: Come To Gather Card

Today I'm sharing a Quick & Cute (QC) card using the Come To Gather Suite of products.

Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog Gather Together stamp set card from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #thanksgiving #cometogather

I have to admit...at first I wasn't too sure about the color scheme of the Come to Gather Designer Series Paper.  But after playing with it, I'm totally in LOVE now!  Especially the addition of Pretty Peacock.

150454 Come To Gather Designer Sereis Paper from Stampin' Up! | 2019 Holiday Catalog #dostamping #stampinup #papercrafting #cardmaking

150454 Come to Gather Designer Series Paper

Coordinating colors:

  • Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, Merry Merlot, Mint Macaron, Pear Pizzazz, Pretty Peacock, Whisper White
  • Also - I'd recommend Crumb Cake &/or Gray Granite too

How'd She DO That? QC Season of Thanks card

  • Stamps: Gather Together
  • Paper:
    • Whisper White thick (11" x 4-1/4" card base and scrap for Timeless Label Punch)
    • Pretty Peacock (3-1/8" x 3-3/4" size)
    • Early Espresso (scrap for 2" Circle Punch
    • Come To Gather Designer Series Paper (three pieces each 1-3/4" x 4")
  • Ink:  Pretty Peacock
  • Other:  2" Circle Punch, Timeless Label Punch, 1/2" Pretty Peacock Scallop Linen Ribbon,  SNAIL & Stampin' Dimensionals

Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog Gather Together stamp set card from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #thanksgiving #cometogather

DOstamping Tip:

  • This card comes together quickly with the 3 strips of DSP.  The hardest part is picking out your favorite patterns.
  • When stamping the pumpkins on Pretty Peacock layer... mount both stamps on same block for ease of stamping. 
  • Punches are my favorite way to add greetings and layers.  Sandwich between ribbon and it finishes off a card nicely!

Not only will I be reaching for the Gather Together stamp set again, but I'll also be using this layout again...it's a winner.

Get ready for the fall season now by adding Come To Gather Suite of products to your shopping bag today.

Enjoy~Dawn O

Stamping with the STARS #322: Come To Gather Sketch

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts322.  This week we're showcasing a fun and easy sketch.

#DOswts322 | Stamping with the STARS Sketch inspiration hop #DOstamperSTARS #sketch #dostamperSTARS #DOswts322 | Stamping with the STARS Sketch inspiration hop #DOstamperSTARS #sketch

For today's sketch inspiration, I pulled out some new product from the 2019 Holiday Catalog Come To Gather Suite.

Holiday Catalog Come to Gather sketch card by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #DOswts322 #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #dostamperSTARS

Fall is my favorite time of year! 

So it was natural the Come To Gather Designer Series Paper caught my attention.  It was a perfect choice for today's sketch.

How'd She DO That? Come To Gather card:

  • Stamps/ Bundles: Gather Together Bundle (includes Gathered Leaves Dies - save 10%)  
  • Paper:
    • Gray Granite (11" x 4-1/4" card base)
    • Whisper White (3" x 4-1/4", scrap for punch)
    • Cajun Craze (3/4" x 4-3/4")
    • Early Espresso (scrap for leaf die)
    • Come To Gather Designer Series Paper (1-1/4" x 4" wood, 1" x 4" dots )
  • Ink:  Early Espresso
  • Other:   Darling Label Punch Box (punch), Leaves Trinkets, Come To Gather Ribbon Combo, SNAIL, Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals

Holiday Catalog Come to Gather sketch card by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #DOswts322 #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #dostamperSTARS

One of the fun things about the leave dies is, three of them both emboss and cut.  It adds a nice dimension to the card, don't you think?

This sketch is a keeper.  It's going in my bag of tricks for future card designs.  I definitely recommend giving it a try.

And...if you're a fall-lover like me, then you'll enjoy the Come To Gather Suite of products!  Add them to your shopping bag today!  

Enjoy~Dawn O

DOstamperSTARS Inspiration hop - #DOswts321 - showcasing Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper #dostamperSTARS #stampinup #papercrafting #stamping

Stampin' Up! Woven Threads DSP card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC321 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting

I chose the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper.  It gives the look of woven rugs and textured fabric with printed variations and irregularities for an authentic feel.   Plus, it coordinates will all of our 2019-2021 In Colors!

149497-WovenThreadsDSP

The card comes together quick and easy.  See below for measurements, as well as a ribbon tip.

How'd She DO That? Woven Threads QC card

  • Stamps: Woven Heirlooms
  • Paper:
    • Rococo Rose (11" x 4-1/4" card base) 
    • Seaside Spray (1-7/8" x 5-1/2")
    • Sahara Sand (1" x 3-1/2")
    • Woven Threads Designer Series Paper (1-3/4" x 5-1/2")
  • Ink:  Pretty Peacock
  • Other:  Sahara Sand 5/8" Woven Threads Trim, Woven Threads Sequin Assortment, Tear & Tape Adhesive, Fine-Tip Glue Pen, SNAIL & Stampin' Dimensionals

Stampin' Up! Woven Threads DSP card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC321 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting

I really like the look of the Sahara Sand 5/8" Woven Threads Trim transformed into tassels.  It was easy to do - see my tips below.

DOstamping Tips:

  • Stamp sentiment on Sahara Sand piece, then cut end into banner shape.  Place a strip of Tear & Tape on backside of banner.
  • Gently remove the "tassel" thread from 3" of the Sahara Sand 5/8" Woven Threads Trim.  Adhere to backside of banner (on the Tear & Tape).  Then adhere banner to card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Adhere sequins to card using Fine-Tip Glue Pen.

  • 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.

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.
