Stamping with the STARS #355: Slimline Cards Field & Flower

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Stamping with the STARS Inspiration Hop #DOswts355.  This week we're sharing the latest trend in card making...Slimline Cards.

Stamping with the Stars #DOswts355 Slimline Cards Challenge #dostamperSTARS #dostampinup #stampinup

If you're not familiar with Slimline cards, here's the skinny:

  • They are a narrow & tall card (or short & long - depending on the orientation of your card)
  • They measure 3-1/2" x 8-1/2" (finished)
  • Just cut 4" off an 8-1/2" x 11" sheet of card stock.  The piece will measure 8-1/2" x 7".  Then score & fold at 3-1/2"

DOstamping Tips:

  • When I first saw the daisy pattern sheet in the Field & Flower Designer Paper, I immediately knew I would make a that featured the daisies.  Here's how I made the daisy:  
    • Cut two white flowers with Medium Daisy Punch.  Use Sponge Dauber to add Pool Party ink to the flowers center area (to resemble the daisies on the paper)
    • Cut So Saffron flower with Medium Daisy Punch (for flower center).  Hand cut off all of the petals.  Use Sponge Dauber to add Pool Party ink to the edges.  
    • Adhere flowers & flower center together with Glue Dots

When you fill  your shopping cart with $50 worth of product, you can qualify to select the Field & Flower Designer Series Paper as your FREE Sale-a-Bration item!  Get yours today.

Stamping with the STARS #350: Little Treats Box Dies

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Stamping with the STARS Inspiration Hop #DOswts350.  This week we're sharing packaging & treat inspiration with you.

Stamping with the STARS #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #DOswts350 #DOstamperSTARS Stampin' Up! Little Treat Box by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #DOswts350 #DOstamperSTARS

One of my favorite new dies is the Little Treats Box Dies, from the Aug-Dec 2020 Mini Catalog. 

With one quick pass through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine, you're halfway there to a cute little treat box.  Just fold on the score lines and assemble - no adhesive required! 

With a box like this, it would be perfect for party favors - wedding, birthday, showers and more!

How'd She DO That? Gilded Autumn Little Treat Box

  • Stamps/Bundle:  Beautiful Autumn (Bundle with Autumn Punch  Pack and SAVE 10%)
  • Paper:
    • Mint Macaron (5-1/2" x 7" for Little Treat Box Die)
    • Very Vanilla (1/2" x 2" for sentiment)
    • Crumb Cake (scrap for punch)
    • Gilded Autumn Designer Series Paper (1" x 6 for belly band, two 1"x 3" for nugget coverings)
  • Ink:  Neutrals Stampin' Write Markers-Early Espresso, Mint Macaron

Stampin' Up! Little Treat Box by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #DOswts350 #DOstamperSTARS

DOstamping Tips:

  • For sentiment - use Early Espresso Stampin' Write Marker to ink up a portion of the stamp, then stamp on Very Vanilla strip.  Use Paper Snips to cut a banners shape in one end.  Make hole with Take Your Pick Tool.
  • Loop 6” of the Basket Weave ribbon through both slots of the treat box.
  • Thread two 8” pieces of thread through sentiment tag, Crumb Cake leaf (also put a hole into the end) and the acorn trinket. Then wrap tightly around the Basket Weave Ribbon (at the top of the box) and tie in a bow.
  • For the Belly Band - change the color of the pattern paper by sponging Mint Macaron ink directly to the paper.

Stamping with the STARS #347: Sketch with Festive Post

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Stamping with the STARS Inspiration Hop #DOswts347.  This week we're sharing a fun sketch with you.

Stampin' Up! Festive Post Halloween card by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #347 #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #DOswts346 #DOstamperSTARS #halloween

This is a classic layout.  Use 3 shapes and layer on a strip of cardstock.  Couldn't be easier!


Stampin' Up! Festive Post Halloween card by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #347 #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #DOswts346 #DOstamperSTARS #halloween
Using the Festive Post stamp set and the Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch, I created a fun Halloween card.  I also added a few extra features to mine for visual interest.

How'd She DO That? Festive Post Halloween card

  • Stamps/Bundle: Festive Post
  • Paper:
    • Purple Posy (5-1/2" x 8-1/2" card base)
    • Mango Melody (scraps for postage punch)
    • Highland Heather (1/2" x 5-1/2" for banner punch) 
    • Basic Black (7/8" x 4-5/8")
  • Ink:  Tuxedo Black Memento
  • Other:  Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch, 1-1/2" Metallic Mesh Ribbon, Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Stampin' Seal & Stampin' Dimensionals

Take a closer look...I'm lovin' the texture the 1-1/2" Metallic Mesh Ribbon brings to the card.  I adhere it will a strip of Stampin' Seal adhesive.

  • Don't be afraid of customizing your stamps!
  • Use our Paper Snips scissors to trim stamp images.  I like how they cut to the very tip of the scissors.
  • I just use the tip and cut very slow - be patient.
  • You'll get a lot more use out of your stamps!

Your Creative Connection #YCC114: Strong & Beautiful

Welcome to another Your Creative Connection tour, #YCC114.  Our theme today is: Shades of Black & White

Your Creative Connection - a bi-monthly tour showcasing Stampin' Up! product

For today's challenge, I reached for the NEW Magic in This Night Designer Series Paper.  The pattern paper was designed for Halloween, but there are several patterns that could be used all-year long!  Take a look...

Stampin' Up! Strong & Beautiful with Magic in the Night Designer Series Paper card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #stamping #papercrafting  #YCC114 #YourCreativeConnection

How'd She DO That? Strong & Beautiful card

  • StampsStrong & Beautiful
  • Paper
    • Basic Gray (4-1/4" x 11" card base)
    • Blackberry Bliss (4" x 5-1/4" and scrap for banner shape die from Tasteful Labels)
    • Smoky Slate (scrap for Stitched So Sweetly Die for the sentiment)
    • Magic in this Night Designer Series Paper (two of 2" x 3")
  • Ink:  Blackberry Bliss, Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush
  • Other:  Tasteful Labels Dies, Stitched So Sweetly Dies, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Stampin' Seal, Mini Stampin' Dimensionals

Stampin' Up! Strong & Beautiful with Magic in the Night Designer Series Paper card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #stamping #papercrafting  #YCC114 #YourCreativeConnection

If you have seen this paper, you might be wondering where the coloring on the flowers came from.  I took some liberties with the challenge of black and white, and added Blackberry Bliss (ha...it has black in it's name, right?!)  See my tips for more information.


DOstamping Tips:

  • For coloring the Magic in This Night Designer Series Paper , I used a Blackberry Bliss ink pad and the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.  
    • While the pad is closed - squeeze the lid into the pad and then open to find a "pool" of ink in the lid.
    • Pick up some ink with the Glitter Brush to add color and glitter to the flowers at the same time.
    • This card looks amazing in real life!
  • The Blackberry Bliss banner ends come from a single banner die from the Tasteful Labels Dies - just cut in half.

I have to admit, without this challenge I would have never made a card like this.  And I'm SO happy with the results.  Give this challenge a try for yourself.

If you like Black & White cards, then you'll definitely want to add the Magic in This Night Designer Series Paper to your collection

I'm excited about sharing today's card, as it was a card both my grandson, Max and I made together.  He picked out the bundle, Nothing's Better Than, and then we started playing!  

As he turned 13 this spring (yes, he's now a teenager - wow!) - I was actually surprised (but delighted) he still wanted to craft with me.  And, since he is only 13, we called it a pink lemonade card

He also wanted to make sure I tell you all that he helped design the card.  Even at 13 - he melts my heart (in between the moody teen times - ha)!  Here's what we came up with...

I really liked the way the Nothing's Better Than stamp set went with the greeting from the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set.  To see how it all came together, be sure to check out my How'd She DO That? video.  It showcases THREE birthday cards, including this one:

Stamping with the STARS #342: Star Inspired Card

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Stamping with the STARS Inspiration Hop #DOswts342.  This week we're sharing "star" inspiration.

Star inspired card by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #342 #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #DOswts342 #DOstamperSTARS

Today's inspiration was suggested by my STARS team members and I thought it was a great idea.  After all, we are the STARS!  I chose to use Magenta Madness and Basic Black, as those are the colors of my DOstamperSTARS Team.

Star inspired card by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #342 #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #DOswts342 #DOstamperSTARS

Even if you don't have any star images or die shapes, you could use a sentiment that represents "you're a star!"  I found the perfect sentiment in the Daisy Lane stamp set (It's your time to shine) and then built my card around that.   

ALSO - I used two NEW Aug-Dec Mini Catalog items, as they had just arrived (Banner Pick a Punch, Glitter Star Ornaments - available August 4) .

How'd She DO That? Time to Shine Star card

  • Stamps: Daisy Lane
  • Paper:
    • Basic Black (11" x 4-1/4" card base, 1/2" x 3-1/8" for Banner Pick a Punch) 
    • Whisper White (4" x 5-1/4")  
    • Magenta Madness & Silver Foil Sheets (scraps for 2nd largest star die)
  • Ink:  Versamark
  • Other:  Stitched Stars Dies, Banner Pick a Punch, Glitter Star Ornaments,  3/8" Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon, White Stampin' Emboss Powder, Heat Tool, Stampin' Seal, Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals

DOstamping Tips for Heat Embossing:

  • I haven't heat embossed in a very long time. I forgot how much fun it is!  If you haven't heat embossed in awhile, or you don't know how to...here you go:
    • Stamp image on strip of Basic Black with Versamark Ink
    • Cover with White Stampin; Emboss Powder
    • Remove excess powder by "flicking" back side
    • Use Heat Tool to melt powder.
    • Adhere with Stampin' Dimensionals

I was super giddy when I finished this card.  It's even better than what I had envisioned in my head.  Love it when that happens!

If you don't have the Stitched Stars Dies yet, they are a must-have.  Whether you're celebrating someone's accomplishment or birthday, or it Christmas or 4th of July, you'll find LOTS of uses for them.  Add it to your shopping bag today!

Thank you for shopping with me!

DOstamping Tips:

  • For the two-tone flower image, ink flowers with Petal Pink ink.  Before stamping, use a Sponge Dauber to add Calypso Coral ink to the flower centers.  Then stamp.
  • To get vertical texture on the entire strip of Just Jade - add texture to one end of the strip and then again on the other end.   
  • Adhere the stamped label die cut to card with Stampin' Dimensionals, covering the "seam" created by the texture embossing.
