Today I'm sharing Thanksgiving card featuring the Snow Front stamp set (found on pg 45 in the 2019 Holiday Catalog).

Stampin' Up! Snow Front and Day of Thanks card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #thanksgivingcards

You can create tranquil scenes with the Snow Front Stamp Set, whether it's cozy cabins with dainty deer or playful cardinals in a winter forest.  This Two-Step Stampin’ set allows you to layer two or more images to create one final image with extra texture and dimension in the colors you want. 

How'd She DO That? Snow Front Thanksgiving card

  • Stamps: Snow Front and Days of Thanks (sentiment)
  • Paper:
    • Very Vanilla Thick (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base) 
    • Very Vanilla (3-7/8" x 5-1/8" and scrap for label die)
    • Old Olive (4" x 5-1/4" and 1-1/2" x 5-1/8")
  • Ink:  Old Olive, Mango Melody, Soft Suede, Cajun Craze

DOstamping Tips:

  • It's hard to see in the photo, but after stamping the greeting, add texture with the Subtle embossing folder
  • To create even more texture and varying colors, use the "stamping off" technique method of stamping.
    • Stamping Off = stamping same image two or more times without re-inking in between.

So don't let the name of this stamp set fool you.  Snow Front can be used for several seasons, that you'll find yourself reaching for it all-year long. Add it to your shopping bag today!

Thank you for shopping with me!

Enjoy~Dawn O

Easy Thanksgiving Card with Stampin' Up!'s Gather Together set

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...

Easy Stampin' Up! Gather Together card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #thanksgiving

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

Easy Stampin' Up! Gather Together card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #thanksgiving

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

Stamping with the STARS #324: Fall Halloween Inspiration - Wonderfully Wicked

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts324.  We decided to move up our hop a week to participate in World Card Making Day, which is today.  Hope you get some card making done today.

Today we're showcasing Fall & Halloween inspiration!

#DOswts324 | Stamping with the STARS Fall Halloween inspiration hop #DOstamperSTARS #dostamperSTARS #halloweencards #DOswts324 | Stamping with the STARS Fall Halloween inspiration hop #DOstamperSTARS #dostamperSTARS #halloweencards

For my card, I pulled my inspiration from the Trick or Treat image...the color scheme and the word as the focus.  

Stampin' Up! Wonderfully Wicked Bundle card from Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS Inspiration #DOswts324 #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #halloweencards #WCMD #dostamperstars

I'd been itchin' to give the Wonderfully Wicked Bundle a try and I'm wickedly pleased with the way it turned out - he he!  

How'd She DO That? Wicked card:

  • Stamps/Bundles: Wonderfully Wicked Bundle (includes Cup of Cheer Dies - saves 10%)
  • Paper:
    • Gorgeous Grape (5-1/2" x 8-1/4" card base, scrap for "wicked" die)
    • Whisper White (two 4" x 5-1/4" for inside and out)
    • Mango Melody  (3/4" x 5-1/4")
    • Pumpkin Pie (3/4" x 5-1/2")
    • Basic Black (scrap for spider die)
  • Ink:  Highland Heather (webs), Gorgeous Grape (sentiment), Tuxedo Black Memento (sentiment)
  • Other:  Wicked Dies, Assorted Googly Eyes, Monster Bash Enamel Shapes,  Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Snail Adhesive, Mini Glue Dots, Black Stampin' Dimensionals Combo Pack

When I made this card, I was delightfully surprised to discover the word just pop out of the die.   Just give the die a little tap and voila!   So I quickly die cut a few more to send out to some wicked cool friends - he he!

DOstamping Tips:

  • I recommend adhering the two strips together first, then adhere to the white panel.
  • Then adhered the die cut with Multipurpose Liquid Glue - use a light touch, a little goes a long way (I tend to have a heavy hand).
  • Adhere googly eyes with glue dot & spider with a Mini Stampin' Dimensional.
  • For the inside sentiment, stamp "wicked" first (with Gorgeous Grape ink).  Then stamp the bat, so you'll know where to stamp the rest of the images. 
  • NOTE:  I was so excited when I stamped the inside of the card - I made another card using that as inspiration.  I'll get it posted soon

Wicked-in

The Wonderfully Wicked Bundle was lots of fun to play and create with, I'm sure you'll love it too.  And if you're thinking it's only for Halloween, you really can use it for other occasions (mix and match with other sentiments).   

  • You're wicked cool
  • Have a wicked day
  • You're so wicked
  • Have a wicked birthday
  • I'm sure you can think of more  (leave a comment)

Add the Wonderfully Wicked Bundle to your shopping bag today!

Enjoy~Dawn O

Stampin' Up! Beauty & Joy: Easy Spotlight Card

Today I'm sharing a card that made me smile when I made it...love it when that happens.  First off, I'm using a new 2019 Holiday Catalog stamp set called, Beauty & Joy.  

2019 Holiday Catalog Beauty & Joy stamp set, with EASY Spotlight Technique by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

This Distinktive* stamp set has a special texture that gives added depth and dimension in a single step, creating photo-realistic images.  The basket particularly shows off the Distinktive style. 

How'd She DO That? Beauty & Joy Spotlight card

  • Stamps: Beauty & Joy
  • Paper:
    • Crumb Cake (8-1/2" x 4-1/4" card base) 
    • Very Vanilla (3-1/2" square)
    • Early Espresso (3-5/8" square)
  • Ink:  Crushed Curry, Terracotta Tile, Soft Suede, Early Espresso
  • Other:   Sponge Daubers, Stitched Rectangle Dies, Linen Thread, SNAIL, Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals

2019 Holiday Catalog Beauty & Joy stamp set, with EASY Spotlight Technique by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

DOstamping Tips:

  1. I recommend stamping the images from the bottom, building to the top.
  2. For the leaves, ink stamp first with Crushed Curry.  Before stamping, use a Sponge Dauber to add Terracotta Tile ink randomly to the leaves.  Breathe on stamp to re-moisten and then stamp.
  3. Stamp sentiment slightly overlapping leave image.
  4. To create the "spotlight" - die cut sentiment with Stitched Rectangle Die.
  5. When assembling card - adhere sentiment last with Stampin' Dimensionals.

2019 Holiday Catalog Beauty & Joy stamp set, with EASY Spotlight Technique by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

When I first started stamping this card, I wasn't sure what direction I was going.  I thought I'd add the sentiment as a separate layer.  But I didn't want it to cover up the two-toned leaves.  Then the idea hit me..."spotlight" the sentiment.  It was the perfect way to step-up this card just a little bit.  And...it was a hit at my club class last week!

Your day with bloom with beauty and joy as you create amazing projects using the Beauty & Joy Stamp Set.  I definitely recommend adding it to your Shopping Bag today!

Enjoy~Dawn O

Stamping with the STARS #323: Holiday Catalog Inspiration

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts323.  This week we're showcasing the 2019 Holiday Catalog!

#DOswts323 | Stamping with the STARS Holiday Catalog inspiration hop #DOstamperSTARS #sketch #dostamperSTARS Stampin' Up! Cup of Christmas Bundle card  by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #christmascards
I chose that new Cup of Christmas Bundle (from the 2019 Holiday Catalog).  It will spread tidings of comfort and joy, and a cup of cheer to all your friends and family this season.

NEW Stampin' Up! Cup of Christmas Reversibles Stamp Set

This fun holiday stamp set includes a special feature, called Reversibles: 

  • It includes specialized photopolymer stamps that allow you to stamp with both sides of the stamp for greater versatility.  (*Patent pending) 
  • I've noted the stamps that are reversible in the graphic above. 
  • Reversibles is  a pretty cool feature.  I love that Stampin' Up! continues to innovate with their stamp sets!

How'd She DO That? Cup of Christmas card:

  • Stamps/Bundles: Cup of Christmas Bundle (includes Cup of Cheer Dies - saves 10%)
  • Paper:
    • Cherry Cobbler (11" x 4-1/4" card base)
    • Whisper White (scraps for cup and flower die)
    • Shaded Spruce (scrap for 2-1/8" stitched square die)
    • Gold Foil (1-1/4" x 4-1/4"
    • Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper (1" x 4-1/4")
  • Ink:  Cherry Cobbler, Shaded Spruce
  • Other:  Cup of Cheer Dies, Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush, Whisper White Baker's Twine, Metallic Pearls, SNAIL, Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals

DOstamping Tips:

  • If you look closely, you'll find that the "sprig" images on the "Cup of Cheer" stamp are not stamped on the cup.  Why? 
    • Well...to be honest, I'm not that fond of them.  So I trimmed them off! 
    • I used our Paper Snips.  They are nice thin scissors that cut to the tip. 
    • Make sure your snips are nice and sharp.   (I use a Fiskars scissors sharpener that I found in the sewing section at Walmart). 
    • NOTE:  I did save the sprig images, and could use them not only with the cup again, but anywhere on my cards.
  • Color the poinsettia by stamping the image with Cherry Cobbler ink, move/blend color around with Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush (one of my favorite quick and easy coloring techniques!)

The Cup of Christmas Reversibles stamp set gives a lot more versatility to stamping!  If you enjoy a good cup of coffee or hot chocolate, this is the bundle for you!  Add it to your shopping bag today!

Enjoy~Dawn O

Stampin' Up! Perennial Flower Punch Tips shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup #papercrafting #punchart

DOstamping TIPS:

  • If you're looking for "fuller-looking" Perennial Flowers:
    • Cut part way into the petals of one flower (as outlined in photo above), then "weave" it into the second flower.
  • For unique textured leaves:
    • Fold 2" of Pretty Peacock 1/2" Scalloped Linen Ribbon in half (secure with a glue dot), then adhere to back of flower with glue dots 
  • Adhere flowers to card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Don't forget to finish off with Perennial Essence Floral Centers (they're awesome!)
