Clean & Simple

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).

  • Stamps/Bundles: Painted Poppies (Bundle with Painted Labels Dies & SAVE 10%) , Peaceful Moments

    • Old Olive (scrap for 2 leaves dies)

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...

I had so much fun playing with this month's kit.  See below for three easy Paper Pumpkin Winter Gifts alternate projects...

Birdhouse ornament with Paper Pumpkin November Winter Gifts Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin

Birdhouse Ornament

With last month's Paper Pumpkin kit, the envelopes had a printed wood pattern.  The flap reminded me of a roof.  So, I was excited to find a large bird die in this month's kit and created a fun birdhouse ornament.

DOstamping Tips:

  • Envelope paper (from October's Paper Pumpkin kit): 3" x 3-1/2", plus flap for roof (cut off adhesive edges), then trim down to about 2" tall.
  • Cut large hole in center of rectangle piece.  I used 1-7/8" Stitched Shape Circle, but a 2" Circle Punch could work too.
  • Poppy Parade:  adhere 1/2" strips to "rooftop", trim as needed.  Then adhere roof to rectangle piece.
  • Early Espresso:  2-7/8"  x 5-1/4" piece to back of birdhouse.  Trim off roof edges.
  • Decorate as desired

Paper Pumpkin November Winter Gifts Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #christmascards

Winter Gifts Sled Card

This card couldn't be easier to make.   Adhere die cuts to 4" x 5-1/4" white panel and then to 4-1/4" x 11" folded Paper Parade card base.  The small bird die cut and sentiment are from last month's Winter Woods Paper Pumpkin kit (stamped with Early Espresso).

 

Paper Pumpkin November Winter Gifts Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #christmascards

Deer Snowflake Card

This turned out to be one of my favorite alternates this month.  The design came together quickly and was exactly what I had in mind (that doesn't always happen - lol).

DOstamping Tips:

  • Adhere 4" x 5-1/4" (October Winter Woods envelope paper) to 11" x 4-1/4" folded Whisper White Thick cardstock
  • Cut a 2-3/8" Stitched Shape circle from center of tag.  Adhere to  a 2-3/4" x 3-1/4" piece of Pool Party cardstock.
  • Sentiment is from last month's Winter Woods Paper Pumpkin kit (stamped with Real Red).
  • Decorate as desired.

Stampin' Up! Most Wonderful Time Product Medley shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting

This was one of the cards I designed for a card ministry group I belong to.  This year our group made 385 Christmas cards...all in about 3-1/2 hours - we had lots of helping hands!

How'd She DO That? Most Wonderful Time card

  • Paper:
    • Thick Whisper White (11" x 4-1/4" card base)

Stampin' Up! Most Wonderful Time Product Medley shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting

DOstamping Tips:

  • Forest of trees: stamp tree image (from product medley) several times in Old Olive ink, create color variation by stamping off a couple times.
  • Brush on Wink of Stella to make your trees shimmer and shine!

Welcome to A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop! 

I'm excited to join in with this talented group of stampers to share alternate ideas for Paper Pumpkin Kits.  Today we're sharing the October 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Winter Woods.

Here's my Paper Pumpkin Winter Woods alternative projects...

Paper Pumpkin October Winter Wonder Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #christmascards

  • all three cards are Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes (finished size 5" x 3-1/2"
  • when using note cards, I like to do my stamping on a 4-7/8" x 3-3/8" Whisper White panel.

Winter Wishes Snowflake  Card

This card couldn't be easier to make.  Just randomly stamp snowflakes with Pool Party ink.  Stamp and trim down sentiment (add a twist of silver thread).  Finish off with rhinestones in the center of the snowflakes...and you're done!

 

Paper Pumpkin October Winter Wonder Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #christmascards

Seasons Greetings Tree card

For this card, I trimmed off 3/4" from both the top and bottom of the card front, and used that for the greeting.

  • Stamp "dots" on the right side of white panel.  Use Pool Party ink - stamp off on scrap paper first.
  • Adhere a set of trees to panel and trim off excess.
  • Stamp sentiment on a piece from the card front.  Adhere both pieces and trim off excess.
  • Adhere bird and finish off with rhinestones.

 

Paper Pumpkin October Winter Wonder Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #christmascards

Garland Holiday Card

I wanted to try something a little different and create swath of color in the background.  I know it's a little hard to see the details on this card, but I think it's my favorite! 

  • Use an Aqua Painter and Pool Party ink (pooled in the lid) and quickly "scribble" a swath of color.  
  • After it dries, stamp the "dots" with stamped off Pool Party ink and greeting with ink from kit.
  • Create "garland" by using the Sprig punch.   Cut two Shaded Spruce Sprigs.  Cut them in half.  I used the curved sprigs and adhere them down with glue dot.  
  • Adhere bird and finish off with rhinestones.

NOTE:  When I make this card again, I would either not water down the Pool Party ink as much as I did, or maybe try a watered down Night of Navy (but I was thinking that might be too dark).

Here's a card we made at my Stamp-a-Stack class last night using the Gather Together stamp set.  And it was a hit with my stampers!

I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest with "wheat" stamping and put my own twist on the card.  Take a look...

How'd She DO That? Harvest Wheat card

  • Stamps: Gather Together & Country Home 
  • Paper:
    • Merry Merlot (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base) 
    • Very Vanilla  (2-3/4" x 5-1/2", 1/2" x 5-1/2")
    • Crushed Curry (2-7/8" x 5-1/2")
  • Ink:  Terracotta Tile, Merry Merlot, Crushed Curry 
  • Other:  Designer Elements & SNAIL

DOstamping Tips:

  • For stamping the wheat images, I recommend:
    • start with stamping both ends with Terracotta Tile ink
    • then stamp in the center with Merry Merlot
    • then fill in between by stamping wheat upside down with Crushed Curry ink  

The Country Home stamp set was used for the greeting.  It has several images that would compliment nicely with the Gather Together stamp set

The Designer Elements were added last.  They are a nice finishing touch and they have a lower profile for ease of mailing.

Add them to your shopping bag today, so loved ones near and far will feel your love and appreciation when they receive this hand-stamped card from you.  

Enjoy~Dawn O

Last of my Bone Appetit Paper Pumpkin kit alternative samples!

Here's the last of my Bone Appetit Paper Pumpkin alternative samples.  Plus a couple more from my fabulous DOstamperSTARS team.

This Bone Appetit eye-catching Trick or Treat/skull border was not only fun to stamp, but it was really easy to create. 

Just stamp the bottom row of sentiments first with Pumpkin Pie ink, filling in with the skulls with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then repeat on top.

The Bone Appetit Pencil Holder also came together quickly and is a great way to use the Bone Appetit kit for non-candy treats! 

  • Trim off the top/bottom of one of the treat boxes. 
  • Cut the 4 "middle" panels into two panels each (you'll get two holders from one box). 
  • Fold in half around pencils and staple shut.  Decorate as desired.

Here's two more ideas from the STARS:

I thought it was clever the way Bernadette used the negative area from the label dies and backed it with black cardstock.

The die cut skeleton, spider webs and foil labels from the Bone Appetit kit are a great way to decorate the new Coffin Boxes!

Two More Wonderfully Wicked Ideas

Like I said on Saturday, as I was playing with the Wonderfully Wicked stamp set, I came up with a couple more ideas.  Both of these cards are quick and perfectly spooky, great for Halloween cards.  Check them out...

If you're looking for some quick & spooky Halloween card ideas, check out these Stampin' Up! Wonderfully Wicked cards shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #halloweencards

This one was directly inspired from Saturday's card - the inside of the card.  I combined individual greetings & images to create a custom sentiment.   I thought it would make for a fun focal point, and it did!

How'd She DO That? Wicked Good Time card

  • Stamps: Wonderfully Wicked
  • Paper:
    • Highland Heather (11" x 4-1/4" card base) 
    • Pumpkin Pie (1" x 4-1/4")
    • Mango Melody (3/4" x 4-1/4")
    • Whisper White (scrap for 2-1/4" circle punch)
    • Gorgeous Grape (2-1/4" circle punch)
  • Ink:  Tuxedo Black Memento, Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather
  • Other:   2-1/4" Circle Punch, SNAIL, Stampin' Dimensionals

DOstamping Quick Tips:

  • Stamp a few spider webs at the top of the folded card base with Gorgeous Grape ink.
  • NOTE:  the spider web on the circle was stamped with Highland Heather ink.

This card is actually going in the mail to my hubby's sister who's birthday is 10/31 - that's right, Halloween.  I always question him, "are you sure she wants a Halloween card for her birthday?".  His answer is always, "yes".

This next one with the googly eyes is perfect for my grandsons - especially the goofy looking cat.

For this card, I used a sketch shared by my friend, Julie Davison.  I enjoy working with sketches and this one was an easy one!

How'd She DO That? Wonderfully Wicked Trio card

  • Stamps: Wonderfully Wicked, Itty Bitty Greetings
  • Paper:
    • Highland Heather (5-1/2" x 8-1/2" card base)

The googly eyes take the cat to a whole new level - ha! 

You'll have a wicked good time using the Wonderfully Wicked Stamp Set.  I definitely did...it will be hard to put it away.
