How'd She DO That? Tips:

I'm not the best at watercoloring, so this Quick Wash tip was the way to go for me.  Plus, I made 36 of them, so it had to be fast! 

  • For the Aqua Painter, keep it more on the dry side.  If it's too wet, the paper will start "pilling.
  • Squeeze ink pad before opening, then pick up pooled ink from the lid with the Aqua Painter.
  • Color images fast with a quick "swipe" across them - using a light touch.  
  • For more tips and to see it in action, be sure to watch my How'd She DO That? video below (a replay of my facebook live from 1/9/20)

Sale-a-Bration Power of Hope Bundle tent card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

DOstamping Tips:

  1. For the coloring on this card, I just did a quick color wash with Aqua Painter and Real Red ink.  Let it dry and then added additional color on her kimono.
  2. I highly recommend using Multipurpose Liquid Glue for the sequins.  Add a small dot of glue to card, then press sequin on it.
  3. A Tent Card is a full-sized card, yet with a smaller card base, so the focal points sits on it showing past the fold line.  As I as playing around with a card base for this card, I recalled the Tent Card style and it was exactly what I was looking for.
  4. I stamped and colored a small image to the inside, bringing the card all together.

Easy Painted Poppies Birthday

Today I'm sharing my first creation made with product from the new Peaceful Poppies Suite!

The Painted Poppies Stamp Set is inspired by a field of poppies and features beautiful line-art images you can fill in with your choice of coloring techniques (see DOstamping Tips below).

Stampin' Up! Painted Poppies Bundle quick & cute card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #paintedpoppies #birthdaycards

How'd She DO That? Happy Birthday Poppies card

  • Stamps/Bundles: Painted Poppies (Bundle with Painted Labels Dies & SAVE 10%) , Peaceful Moments
  • Paper:
    • Poppy Parade (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base) 
    • Whisper White (2-3/4" x 4", scrap for flower die)
    • Basic Black (3" x 4-1/4", 3/8" x 4-1/4")
    • Old Olive (scrap for 2 leaves dies)
    • Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper (1" x 4")
  • Ink:  Tuxedo Black Memento, Poppy Parade
  • Other:  Painted Labels Dies, Gold Faceted Gems, SNAIL, Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals

Stampin' Up! Painted Poppies Bundle quick & cute card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #paintedpoppies #birthdaycards

DOstamping Tips:

  • You'll notice that the "textured flower background" image doesn't fully match the flower outline image.  It was designed that way, to give the look of watercoloring.
  • If you prefer a fully colored flower, here's a couple of coloring options to choose from:
    1. Color with ink and Aqua Painter
    2. Use Stampin' Blends to color flower
    3. Stamp on solid colored cardstock or Designer Series Paper (the backside of this DSP has LOTS of colors/textures to choose from!)
  • I found the Gold Faceted Gems to be a perfect fit for the center of the flower.

Speaking of Poppies...

With new products calling out to me, I reached for the Birthday Bonanza Suite of products (coming January 3).  I don't always purchase these type of images, but I finally gave in and got them on my last pre-order.  And...I'm glad I did.  They are super fun to play with!

DOstamping Tips:

  • For the Lion's party hat - I chose the square "gift package" image instead of the hat, for a different look.
  • I thought it needed a little something to bring it all together and the Sale-a-bration Metallic Baker's Twine & Sequins Combo Pack was the perfect touch.  The sequin colors match the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper - yay!

Stamping with the STARS #328: Money Gift Card Holder

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts328.  This week we're showcasing Money/Gift Card Holders!

Stampin' Up! product name card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC328 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting

Today's Gift Card Holder Inspiration came at just the right time, as I was in need of one for a friend. 

Jan-Jun 2020 NEW product, So Sentimental Bundle gift card holder created by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #DOswts328 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #giftcardholder #papercrafting #dostamperstars

At the Stampin' Up! Atlanta OnStage event last month, I had a bit of a travel mishap.  My friend, Brian King saved me at the emergency room, as well as throughout the  entire weekend.  I'm not sure what I would have done without him (and several of his team members who pitched in too).  Even though I was traveling alone, you are never alone when you're at a Stampin' Up! event!

How'd She DO That? Gift Card Holder:

  • Holder:  Cut 10" x 3-1/4" Night of Navy cardstock.  Score at 4" and 8".  To the smallest section, add Tear & Tape to both side edges, fold up and secure
  • Sleeve:  Cut 7-1/2" x 3-1/2" Smokey Slate cardstock.  Score at 1/2" and 4".  Add Tear & Tape to 1/2" section and fold/secure together)
  • NEW Country Club Designer Series Paper ( 3-1/4" x 3-1/4")
  • Whisper White (3" x 3-3/4" for inside panel and scrap for sentiment die cut)

Jan-Jun 2020 NEW product, So Sentimental Bundle gift card holder created by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #DOswts328 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #giftcardholder #papercrafting #dostamperstars

For the greeting - I used a NEW Jan-Jun 2020 Mini Catalog product, So Sentimental Bundle.   The Designer Series Paper is Country Club and that too is coming 1/3/2020Jan-Jun 2020 NEW product, So Sentimental Bundle #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking

I was immediately drawn to this bundle because of the sentiments and the size of them.  I think I'll be reaching for this set a lot.  And the coordinating dies...come with both scallop rectangles and fancy shape dies.  Lovin' it!

The Jan-Jun 2020 Mini Catalogs and 2020 Sale-a-Bration Catalogs are starting to arrive in mailboxes already - yay!.  You'll not only love the new product, but there is a new layout and organization to the mini catalog that you'll enjoy too.

Enjoy~Dawn O

Million Sales Achiever Stamp Set: Music from the Heart

I'm beyond excited that I can finally share my Million Sales Achiever stamp set with you!  It's called "Music from the Heart".  Which is perfect, as every time I look at, it makes my heart sing!

"Music from the Heart" samples by Dawn Olchefske, Stampin' Up! Million Sales Achiever  - coming Jan 3, 2020 #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #OnStage2019 #millionsalesachiever 

You might be wondering, "why music"?  That's a good question.

Growing up, music was a huge part of my life.  I played several instruments: oboe, guitar, saxophone, but particularly piano (classically trained).  I was in any band I could be in...concert band, jazz band, orchestra, musical theater practice piano and of course...marching band.  Officially - I'm a band geek!  I'm sure I have some fellow band geeks out there, right?  In addition, I sang in choirs and co-directed our church's children's choir for a couple of years.  

My girls were also in band and choir growing up (of course).  My daughter Becky is now a musician, singer/songwriter.   And now a 3rd generation is developing a love of music...my grandsons.  Max plays piano and percussion.  Sam plays saxophone.

So...music was a natural choice for me!

I was thrilled to be able to share my stamp set and samples at the Stampin' Up! Atlanta OnStage this month.  See below for my creations (note: I will be creating a couple of videos on how to use the stamp set, as well as some of the specific projects):

Features of  the "Music from the Heart" stamp set:

  • Create your own greeting by mixing and matching images
  • Curvy keyboard can be stamped multiple times to create a border
  • Music notes can be stamped randomly on music staff, or stamp out a favorite tune ie: Happy Birthday 
  • Songbirds can be stamped on music staff 
  • Stamp the treble clef, then 2-step stamp the partial guitar image to create a "full" artsy guitar

  • Tip for the "grid" square:  Stamp music staff horizontally, and then vertically.
  • The word "music" uses the Lined Alphabet stamp set and Real Red Stampin' Blends

I didn't get to play a grand piano very often - only at recitals.  But when I did, it made me feel like a real musician!  

  • I've heard from so many of you that are just like me, who love music! 
  • Your response has truly touched my heart - Thank you
  • I'd love to hear  your music stories...please share in a comment.

Come January 3, 2020, you can add "Music from the Heart" (151674) to your shopping card (part of the  upcoming Jan-June 2020 Mini Catalog).  Band Geeks unite!!

Enjoy~Dawn O
