Stamping with the STARS In Color Inspiration #DOswts320 #dostamping #stampinup #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #DOstamperSTARS

For my 2019-2021 In Color inspiration, I chose to feature Seaside Spray and Pretty Peacock.  They pair up real nice, don't you think?

After selecting my colors, I reached for a new stamp set, Beautiful Friendship.  The stamp set was on one of my first orders from the new Annual Catalog.  But I hadn't had a chance to ink it up yet.  I'm so glad I finally used it, as it's as described...beautiful. And of course...it's now my current new favorite!

  • Stamps:  Beautiful Friendship
  • Paper:
    • Seaside Spray (11" x 4-1/4" card base)

Stampin' Up!'s It Starts With Art Bundle: Border Dies

Here's a card I made over the weekend as I was playing again with the Follow Your Art Suite of products.

It Starts with Art Bundle from Stampin' Up!, card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting 

I started off by playing with the Arts & Crafts Dies:  

  • I cut each of the dies out first to see what they really look like.
  • There are three border trim dies.  Two of which cut out completely.
  • However, the "ribbon" border die I found does not cut out completely.  It only cuts the edge.  I actually like that feature as it makes it easier to adhere.  

Stampin' Up! Arts & Crafts Dies sizes shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup #papercrafting #diecutting #stampindies

DOstamping It Starts With Art card:

  • Bundles:  It Starts with Heart (includes Arts & Craft Dies)
  • Paper:
    • Whisper White Thick (11" x 4-1/4" card base)
    • Pacific Point  (2-1/2" x 4-1/4" die cut end with "ribbon" border die) 
    • Calypso Coral (1/2" x 3")
    • Designer Series Paper (1" x 4-1/4", 5/8" x 4-1/4")
  • Ink:  Pacific Point
  • Other:  Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit, SNAIL, Stampin' Dimensionals & Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.

It Starts with Art Bundle from Stampin' Up!, card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting 

How'd She DO That?:

  • The focal point of this card was created using pieces from the the Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit
  • It includes tons of fun embellishments (including the adorable heart shaped charms) for your handcrafted projects.   
  • Store them all in the designer box (included), which will also fits your completed cards!
  • TIP:  Thread twine through charm and paper clip, and clip onto felt heart.  Then tie twine in a bow. 
  • Sentiment banner was also slipped into the paper clip.  Then use dimensionals to adhere to card.  A Mini Stampin' Dimensional fits perfectly on the charm  - as shown below.

See card made with149491-Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit  #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #followyourart 

149491 Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit includes:

  • 4 sheets of stitched, die-cut felt accents (1 sheet each of 4 colors: Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry)
  • 12 paper clips (6 Blushing Bride, 6 Coastal Cabana)
  • 3 yards Pacific Point Linen Thread
  • 3 yards Calypso Coral Linen Thread
  • 6 silver charms (“Made with Love” on one side, blank on the other side)
  • 6" x 4-3/4" x 1-1/16" designer box
  • Coordinating colors: Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry, Pacific Point

When I was done playing with this card, I gathered up all the extra die cuts I hadn't used yet, and put them in the Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit box.  It's a great way to not only clean-up, but to keep things organized and all in one place!

I made a couple more cards with the Follow Your Art Suite , which I'll share at another time.  In the meantime, you can get the entire suite by using the Follow Your Art Suite Bundle item #152181Add it to your shopping bag today!  

Enjoy~Dawn O

More Paper Pumpkin Inspiration: On My Mind

One of the fun features of this month's Paper Pumpkin kit, On My Mind...is the 3 different styles of cards.   Last week, I focused on the Come Sail Away coordination.   Wasn't that "sailor" card cute?

Today, I'm featuring three cards mostly focusing on the Garden Lane kit contents, supplementing with pieces from the sailboat cards. 

July 2019 On My Mind from Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits, Paper Pumpkin

How'd She DO That? Garden Lane Card #1:

  • Trim main panel down to 4-1/4" in length.  Adhere to folded card base.
  • From the green striped card base - trim off 1" x 4-1/4" from Mossy Meadow back side - adhere to card.
  • Use Mossy Meadow ink to stamp greeting, then add paper clip and twine.  Adhere with dimensionals.
  • Adhere leafy die cuts under greeting label with glue dots.

 

July 2019 On My Mind from Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits, Paper Pumpkin

How'd She DO That? Garden Lane Card #2:

  • Trim a variety of green pieces to 13/16" x 3-1/2", then adhere to folded card base.
  • Use Mossy Meadow ink to stamp greeting,  Adhere with dimensionals.
  • NOTE:  you could make multiples of this card.   Just change out the card base to either Sahara Sand or Crumb Cake, and cut your own 1" x 2-1/4" sentiment piece.

 

July 2019 On My Mind from Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits, Paper Pumpkin

How'd She DO That? Garden Lane Card #23:

  • Trim 2 pieces from the green striped card (front & back) - both measuring 2" x 4-1/2".  Adhere to folded Sahara Sand card base.
  • Adhere Old Olive stitched die cut (from kit).
  • Use Mossy Meadow ink to stamp greeting,  Adhere with dimensionals.
  • Adhere leafy die cuts & twine bow with glue dots. (Note: flip over Old Olive leaves to the white side)

I'm happy with the results of these cards that I created cards while at the lake.  It could be a nicer day here today.  Which I think is good for my mojo!

Celebrate 4th of July: Patriotic Daisy Lane Card

I was wondering what I'd use for a 4th of July card this year and I recalled t-shirt I used to have that had red, white and blue daisies on it.  I thought that could translate to a patriotic card.   

With the Daisy Lane stamp set & Medium Punch (Bundle & Save 10%) - in Red, White & Blue, it's the perfect size & color for today's card!

Patriot Daisy Lane (from Stampin' Up!) card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #daisylane

DOstamping Patriotic Daisy Lane card:

  • Bundles: Daisy Lane stamp, with Medium Daisy Punch (SAVE 10%)
  • Paper:
    • Blueberry Bushel (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base)
    • Whisper White (5/8" x 4-3/4" and scraps for punching)
    • Real Red (scrap for 2-1/8" Stitched Shape Die square) 
  • Ink: Real Red, Basic Gray (stamp off), Blueberry Bushel
  • Other:   Clear Faceted Gems, SNAIL, Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals

Patriot Daisy Lane (from Stampin' Up!) card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #daisylane

How'd She DO That? tips:

  • Be sure to stamp and punch two daisy punch out for each flower.
  • For the "white" daisy - I used Basic Gray ink, but stamped off first.  (I tried using a white flower with no stamping, but that didn't look right to me)
  • Adhere flowers together with glue dots, then to card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Have I told you..."I love this medium size daisy flower".  It's the perfect size!!  I know you'll like the size too.  Add the Daisy Lane Bundle (151118) to your shopping bag today!  

Enjoy~Dawn O

If you already have this kit, you'll have found the cards/envelopes are business card sized.  Great for keeping in your purse (which is what the storage bag is for), or using for a gift cards, etc. 

However, for everyday card making/sending, you may find them too small.  No problem, Stampin' Up! Note Cards & Envelopes to the rescue.

June 2019 Paper Pumpkin A Little Smile Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

First up is one of my favorite alternate designs I like to do with Paper Pumpkin kits.  It's kinda two cards coming together to make one card (so worth it!)  

You'll need one of the "mini cards" from the kit and one Note Card & Envelope (5" x 3-1/2").   I don't have a name for this style of card, but had a few suggestions...ie: Dawn's Delight or Flip Flap card.  After making one - you decide (and let me know what you think). 

How'd She DO That? Flip Flap Note Card

  • Decorate a mini card from the kit and fold in half  
  • Trim off  1" from front panel of a Whisper White Note Card...along the 5" edge
  • Wrap mini card around Note Card (mini card will open from the left, note card will open from the right)
  • Adhere back side of mini card to back side of note card.
  • Adhere 4-1/4" x 2-3/4" piece of Pool Party cardstock to inside of card (optional, but I liked the added dimension it gave the card)
  • Stamp envelope using Crumb Cake ink

Here it is fully open.

Next up is also an easy alternate card, using a full-size 5-1/4" x 4-1/4" card.

I have my friend, Julie Davison to thank for the inspiration for this card.  She shared a similar style card using last month's Paper Pumpkin, and I thought it was a brilliant idea.  I promised myself I'd give it a try with our next Paper Pumpkin kit that had small cards. 

How'd She DO That? Beach Card

  • Do not fold the card base from the kit...keep it flat and use as a full panel for a regular 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" card
  • Decorate with die cuts from kit - near the center of the panel (this will hide the score line)
  • Adhere to 4-3/4" x 3-1/2" piece of Pool Party cardstock.
  • Then adhere to folded 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" Crumb Cake card base.
  • Stamp envelope using Crumb Cake ink and Coastal Cabana from kit (sand dollar was stamped off)

So...what do you think?  Fun and EASY cards that you can mail - yay!

Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration: Quick & Cute Painted Seasons

I'm smiling as I write this post.  Why?  Because, I'm totally in love with today's card.  The colors, the Painted Seasons Designer Paper, the layout and the beautiful sentiment (from Strong & Beautiful stamp set).

Quick & Cute Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration Painted Season Designer Series Paper card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #paintedseaons

It was one of the cards from my popular Stamp-a-Stack class this week, and...was a huge hit!  Leave a comment to let me know what you think.

How'd She DO That? Painted Seasons QC card:

  1. Stamps: Strong & Beautiful
  2. Paper:
    • Call Me Clover (11" x 4-1/4" card base)  
    • Whisper White (4-1/8" x 5-3/8")
    • Painted Seasons (Bundle) Designer Series Paper (4-3/4" x 2-1/4"
    • Calypso Coral (4-3/4" x 2-5/8")
  3. Ink: Call Me Clover
  4. Other:  Petal Pink/Silver Baker's Twine, SNAIL

Quick & Cute Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration Painted Season Designer Series Paper card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #paintedseaonsDOstamping Tips:

  • The DSP was cut a bit larger than normal, because I wanted to position it at an angle. 
  • Adhere DSP to Calypso Coral, then to white panel at an angle. 
  • The edges will come over the sides of the white panel.  You'll need to trim them off.
  • Then wrap 27" of twine twice around panel, cross over on the front and tie in a bow.

I was giddy when I made this card.  It not only came together quickly, but I was delighted with the end result.  You'll want to give it a try!

When your order is $100 or more, you can choose the 2nd release item, Painted Seasons Bundle (DSP and stamp set).   I think you'll find yourself reaching for this bundle all year-long.   Add it to your shopping bag today!
