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

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

    • Purple Posy (5-1/2" x 8-1/2" card base)

    • Basic Black (7/8" x 4-5/8")

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

Nothing's Better Than meets Happiest of Birthdays! (and Video)

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...

Nothing's Better Than from Stampin' Up! - card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #happiestofbirthdays

DOstamping It's Your Day Pink Lemonade card:

  • Stamps/Bundles: Nothing's Better Than Bundle, Happiest of Birthdays
  • Paper:
    • Flirty Flamingo (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base) 
    • Whisper White (3 x 4-1/4", scrap for cocktail die)
    • Playing with Patterns Designer Series Paper (both strips 3/4" x 5-1/4")
  • Ink:  Tuxedo Black Memento, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Coastal Cabana
  • Other:  Love You More Than Dies, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Stampin' Seal & Stampin' Dimensionals

Nothing's Better Than from Stampin' Up! - card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #happiestofbirthdays

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:

I think both of the Nothing's Better Bundle and Happiest of Birthdays stamp set are must-have for any stampers collection.  For me - I'll be reaching for both of them all-year long!  Add them to your shopping bag today so you can craft with me.

Thank you for shopping with me!

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

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

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.

More Masked Celebrate Sunflowers

Here's another Celebrate Sunflowers masking technique card.  This time using Stampin' Blends to color the beautiful sunflowers!

Masking Technique with Celebrate Sunflowers from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #stampingtechnique #celebratingsunflowers #stampinblends

DOstamping Masking Instructions:

  1. On the Whisper White panel, stamp smaller sunflower image near the right edge/center. (shown as the 3rd flower from the bottom).
  2. Create masks: on sticky notes, stamp flower and leaf images, then fussy cut each one out separately.
  3. Use sticky note flower mask to cover stamped flower (pull slightly away from image), then stamp leaf as shown. Repeat for stamping flower/leaves above & below the first image. Then again for top & bottom images
  4. Color with Stampin’ Blends.

This Celebrate Sunflowers card made me feel like an artist.  With the right tools & technique, you can feel that way too.  Give masking a try, then color your images with Stampin' Blends!

This stamp set also comes in a bundle...Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle.   Add it to your shopping bag today.

Thank you for shopping with me!

Stamping with the STARS #340: CASE the Catalog, Lovely You Bundle

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Stamping with the STARS Inspiration Hop #DOswts340.  This week we're CASEing the Catalog

Stamping with the Stars #DOswts340 #dostamperSTARS #dostamping #stampinup
Stampin' Up! Lovely You Bundle card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #DOswts340, #DOstamperSTARS
CASE stands for Copy And Share Everything

For my CASE, I was inspired by a sample found on page 22 of the 2020-2021 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog, using the NEW Lovely You Bundle.

Stampin' Up! Lovely You Bundle card - pg 22 (2020-2021 Annual Catalog) #lovelyyou #stampinup

  • I was inspired by the colors  (Night of Navy, Crushed Curry & Gray Granite) and started with that. 
  • There was a pink color too, but I switched out with Mint Macaron.  Why?  Because I had a Mint Macaron card base sitting on my crafting table.  Just call me an efficient stamper! 
  • Though, I have to admit I would have never thought of this combination of colors, but somehow it works.   Good to get outside my comfort zone.

How'd She DO That? Lovely You Bundle card

  • Stamps/Bundle:  Lovely You (Bundle & Save 10% with Lovely Labels Pick a Punch)
  • Paper:
    • Mint Macaron (11" x 4-1/4" card base,  3/4" x 2-3/4") 
    • Whisper White (4" x 4-1/4")
    • Crushed Curry (4-1/4" x 4-1/4")
  • Ink:  Night of Navy, Crushed Curry, Gray Granite & Mint Macaron
  • Other:  Lovely Labels Pick a Punch, Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack, Basic Rhinestones, Stampin' Seal  & Stampin' Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Lovely You Bundle card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #DOswts340, #DOstamperSTARS

DOstamping Tips:

  • When using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch, keep in mind that 1/8" will be cut off from each end.  If cutting both ends - add 1/4" to your measurements.  When cutting only one end add 1/8"
  • You'll also notice that I loosely CASE'd the layout too - just turned it to a portrait position
  • Don't forget to try ribbons from different Suites and Colors.  This ribbon is actually Just Jade (from the Flower for Every Season), but I found it coordinates nicely with Mint Macaron too.

Personally, I think the Lovely You Bundle is a must-have!  The cute images and nice variety of sentiments can be used all-year long.  Be sure to add it to your shopping bag today.

Thank you for shopping with me!
