Christmas

Featuring DOstamperSTAR Terry Rajala

Today's stunning card was created by one of my DOstamperSTAR Team Members, Terry Rajala.  

Let me tell you a little bit about Terry.  She was a local customer of mine for many years, who attended any event/class I held.  Terry was the kind of customer who knew a lot about stamping and generously shared it with others.  She always helped someone who might have been struggling at her table and more!  For the past few years, I've been suggesting that Terry become a demonstrator and join my team, as she would be a natural.  Well...last Sale-a-Bration she joined!  And I'm so delighted to have her on my team.

Terry Rajala's Easel Calendar Card #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting 

Her card was SO stunning on the outside, that I never opened the clear envelope we use when swapping, to see the inside.  When I opened it to take a photo, "WOW" was all I could say!  I can't believe I waited so long.  Lesson learned...open the cards, there might be something special inside!  

I'm happy to share her card with you today!

Terry's Easel Calendar card:

  1. Stamps: Merry Christmas to All
  2. Paper:
    • Tranquil Tide (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base, score at 2-1/8" & 4-1/4", and scrap for punching) 
    • Whisper White  (5" x 3-375") 
    • Frosted Floral Designer Series Paper (5-1/4" x 4", 4-1/2" x 1-1/2")
  3. Ink: Tranquil Tide, Shaded Spruce Light Stampin' Blends (to color rhinestones)
  4. Other:  Big Shot, Seasonal Wreath Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Sprig Punch,  Rhinestone Basic Jewels
  5. Non-SU:  3" x 2-1/4" tear off calendar

This close-up gives you a better view of just how stunning her card is!

Below is the card open so you can see how it was decorated.  The tear-off calendar measures 3" x 2-1/4".   If you do a Google search, you'll find some options.

Terry, thank you for sharing your love of stamping with the STARS.  So glad you finally made the leap!   

Maybe this upcoming Sale-a-Bration, some of you will also make the leap to join Stampin' Up! and my DOstamperSTARS Team.  Sale-A-Bration starts January 3rd and there are some special add-on's for you during that time!

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Blizzard card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting 

I'm completely in love with the greetings from the soon-to-be-retired Beautiful Blizzard stamp set.  Not only are they playful and meaningful, but the fonts are super fun!  

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Blizzard stamp set from Stampin' Up!  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping

How'd She DO That? Beautiful Blizzard card:

  1. Stamps: Beautiful Blizzard
  2. Paper:
    • Balmy Blue or (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base, 3-3/4" x 1" for greeting) 
    • Whisper White (4-7/8" x 3-5/8")  
    • Night of Navy (5-1/8" x 3-7/8", 3-1/8" x 3/4")
  3. Ink: Balmy Blue (stamp off), Night of Navy
  4. Other: Everyday Label Punch (trick), Silver Metallic Thread, Rhinestone Basic Jewels & Stampin' Dimensionals
  5. Tip: see below

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Blizzard card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting 

Wondering how I created the greeting shape?  That's a punch trick, with the Everyday Label Punch, here's how:.

Everyday Label Punch Trick:

  • Have Everyday Label Punch facing upside down
  • Insert 3-3/4" x 1" strip into punch from the left edge and as it enters the punch, lift up the right edge so it slides up & over the right edge of the punch.
  • Align the left edge of the strip to the left outside edge of the punch.
  • Before punching, make sure the strip is centered in the punch shape.

DOstamping Everyday Label Punch Trick #stampinup #punches #papercrafting #HowdSheDOthat #stampinup #dostamping

This was the last card from my Christmas Stamp-a-Stack class.  I hope you enjoyed seeing them as much as my class attendees enjoyed making them. 

Be sure to add the Beautiful Blizzard to your shopping bag today, before it's gone for good!  

Enjoy~Dawn O

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #307: Punches are a Stampers Best Friend!

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

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge DSC#307 #dostamperSTARS #thursdaychallenge #punches

That's right, punches ARE a stampers best friend.  Why...because with a quick stamp and punch, you've got an easy-to-make embellishment for your cards.

Stampin' Up! Making Christmas Bright Bundle card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC307 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #howdshedothat #christmascards

Stampin' Up! has a large offering of punches.  I chose the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch, and the coordinating Making Christmas Bright stamp set (bundle % save 10%).  It was an easy choice, as it was another card I offered at my Christmas Stamp-a-Stack class.  The ladies found it a little fussy at first, but when their card all came together, I heard a lot of, "oh, that was worth it"!

How'd She DO That? Christmas Bulb card:

  • Stamps: Making Christmas Bright
  • Paper:
    • Paper Parade (11" x 4-1/4" card base) 
    • Color (2 of 4" x 5-1/4", scraps for punching)
    • Galvanized Metallic Paper (scraps for punching)
  • Ink: Poppy Parade, Lemon Lime Twist, Coral Calypso, Call Me Clover, Granite Gray
  • Other: Stamparatus, Christmas Bulb Builder Punch, All is Bright Paper Clips, Silver Bakers Twine, Clear Wink of Stella, Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Shopping Links:  See below for a full supply list with links to shop online

Stampin' Up! Making Christmas Bright Bundle card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC307 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #howdshedothat #christmascards

Dawn's Tips:

  • For the best stamping impression...be sure to clean the "bulb" stamps before stamping.  This will remove any manufacturing film.
  • Use the Stamparatus to stamp the greeting and string of lights - makes for quick and perfect stamping alignment!
  • Though you can't see it in the photo, Wink of Stella was added to the word "shine".

Today I'm sharing a richly colorful Christmas card using the soon-to-be-retired Beautiful Baubles stamp set.

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Baubles card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #howdshedothat #beautifulbaubles

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Baubles card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #howdshedothat #beautifulbaubles

Dawn's Tips:

  • Stamp the bauble image in the middle of the paper and then stamp to the left and right of it.
  • Use the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch to create the scallop edging.

As I mentioned, the Beautiful  Baubles stamp set is retiring.  There are matching dies available and a bundle too!

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #306: Under the Mistletoe Tree Card

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

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge DSC#306, #dostamperstars #thursdaychallenge

My eye was drawn towards the plaid patterns on the packaging for today's challenge. I first thought of the retiring Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Catalog.  But then thought I should give the Annual Catalog a little attention and pulled out the Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper.

How'd She DO That tips for Sweetly Stitched Tree card:

  • Stamps: none
    • Paper: Real Red (4-1/4" x 11" card base)
    • Old Olive (scraps for dies - Stitched Tree, 2-1/2" Scalloped Square)
    • Early Espresso (scrap for 2-1/8" Stitched square)
    • Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper (4" x 5-1/4")
  • Ink: Early Espresso Marker (coloring wood "joy")
  • Other: Big Shot, Sweetly Stitched Framelits Dies (retiring), Layering Square Dies, Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies, Festive Farmhouse Elements (sold out), All is Bright Paper Clips  (retiring), Whisper White 3/8" Classic Weave Ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals, Fine Tip Glue

NOTE:  the wooden "joy" element is sold out.  Sorry, this card was completed prior to the announcement.  But if you have the Festive Farmhouse Elements, you can change the color by adding color with a marker.

The Sweetly Stitched Framelit Dies are really cute and could kind of stand on their own, as you can see.  If you look closely at the tree shape - that is not a stamp for the stitching - that comes from the die itself.  Both dies & stamps are retiring, so if you're interested in them - I'll include the stamps and bundle in the supply list below, so you can add them to your shopping bag today!  

With so many of the Holiday Catalog Designer Series Papers selling out right now, don't forget to check the Annual Catalog for holiday supplies!  The Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper has some fabulous patterns too

Enjoy~Dawn O
