DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #256: Merry Cafe Gift Card Holder

It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge.  This week we're having a "Color My World" challenge.  

  DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC256 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy

Today I'm at the Stampin' Up! Annual On Stage event in Salt Lake City.  I'm excited to be spending time with some of the STARS, as well as friends I've made along the way (14 years - wow!). Looking forward to lots of inspiration, fun, laughs and more!  I'll share some of my experience next week when I return home.

Today's color combo is straight from the Be Merry Designer Series Paper.  It's a great collection of paper with designs for both Christmas and non-Christmas events.

 I love having gift card holders on hand for a quick gift idea. This one is 4-1/4" square so it still fits into an envelope.  Enjoy making your own gift card holders!

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #248: Painted Harvest Sunflower Seeds Treat Pouch

It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge.  This week we're having a "Color My World" challenge.  

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC248 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy

I had to think a little bit with this week's color combo on how to tie it into the Painted Autumn Suite Week.  As the colors are very Halloweeny (if that's a word?), I thought maybe a treat pouch of some kind would do the trick (or treat - ha!).  Here's what I came up with using the Painted Harvest Bundle..

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest Bundle treat pouch by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC248 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #treatpouch #stamping #diy #packaging #paintedharvest #leafpunch #sunflower

Sunflower Seeds Treat Pouch

  1. Stamp sunflower images (from Painted Harvest stamp set) on Very Vanilla scrap with the following inks
    1. Pumpkin Pie = large flower
    2. Cajun Craze = small flower
    3. Memento Tuxedo Black =  flower center & dots (multiple times)
    4. Use Paper Snips to cut out
  2. Cut 2-1/2" off 2" x 8" Cellophane Bag.  Fill with sunflower seeds.  Fold bag over about 1-1/2".  Place cut out sunflower near the top of the bag.  Then staple flower to the folded bag along with a piece of Basic Black Bakers Twine.
  3. Stamp sentiment (from Thoughtful Banners stamp set) with Cajun Craze ink on scrap of Very Vanilla.  Cut with Classic Label Punch.  Optional: cut label down to roughly 1-3/4".  Cut hole with 1/8" Handheld Circle Punch.  Thread Bakers Twine through hole and tie in a bow.
  4. Cut Cajun Craze scrap with Leaf Punch.  Adhere to under sunflower with Glue Dots.

I'm super excited about the way the treat pouch turned out.  These would make sweet little co-worker gifts, party favors, a cute fall-themed wedding favor and more!  Imagine them on your Thanksgiving table this year.

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #244: Be Merry Mistletoe

It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge.  This week we're having a "Color My World" challenge.  

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #244-Color My World #dostamping
In staying with Holiday Inspiration Week, I naturally selected the Be Merry Designer Series Paper for this week's color combo.

Stampin' Up!  Merry Mistletoe & Be Merry DSP card shared by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC244 #dostamping
This surprisingly easy card is elevated with the use of embellishments, like the Boxwood Wreaths.  See how...

Merry Mistletoe Reindeer Card

  1. Wrap Garden Green 3/8 Stitched Satin Ribbon around 4" x 5-1/2" piece of Be Merry Designer Series Paper.
  2. Stamp reindeer image with Versamark ink on scrap of Basic Black cardstock.  Cover with White Stampin' Emboss Powder, tap over excess and melt with Heat tool.  When cooled, use a Stampin' Sponge and lightly rub a little Whisper Whisper Craft ink around the image to give it a "chalkboard look".  
  3. Die cut with 3-1/4" oval from Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  Adhere to 3-1/2" Cherry Cobbler scallop oval from Layering Oval Framelits Dies.  Adhere to panel from step #1 with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Slide ribbon/bow into place.  Then adhere completed panel to folded 11" x 4-1/4" Basic Black card base.
  4. Attach Cherry Cobbler Enamel Dot (Regals) to nose.
  5. Cut a 1/2" piece from a Boxwood Wreath Embellishments.  Shape and adhere with Glue Dots.

Go ahead and cut up the Boxwood Wreath Embellishments - makes them go a long ways!

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #240: KISS with Petal Garden DSP

It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge.  This week we're having a "Color My World" challenge.  

DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge DSC#240 - Color My World #dostamping

As I just returned from the fabulous Stampin' Up! Thailand incentive trip, I'm still having a bit of trouble with jet lag.  So for today's card I'm using the KISS method, Keepin' It Super Simple!  I noticed that these colors are in the Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack...so that was my starting point.

Stampin' Up! Petal Garden DSP card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC240 #dostamping
Petal Garden KISS card

  1. Cut 4 patterns of Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack into 6" x 3/4" strips.  Cut ends with Triple Banner Punch.  Arrange strips on 4" x 5-1/4" panel of Sweet Sugarplum at various heights.  Adhere and trim off excess.
  2. Wrap 1/8" Fresh Fig Sheer Ribbon around panel and tie in a bow.
  3. Stamp greeting from Happy Birthday Gorgeous with Fresh Fig ink on scrap of Whisper White.  Die cut with Stitched Shapes Framelits.  Adhere to card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  4. Adhere completed panel to folded 11" x 4-1/2" Sweet Sugarplum card base.

Stampin' Up! Petal Garden DSP card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC240 #dostamping

Designer Series Paper is one of my favorite products to reach for when I'm in a hurry to make a card.  It not only helps me narrow down the choice of colors to use, but also creates beautiful cards in an instant!

TIP:  whenever I purchase Designer Series Paper, I also purchase the matching cardstock, ink and accessories.  Then I'm ready to go at a moments notice!

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #236: Beautiful Bouquet Bundle

It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge.  This week we're having a "Color My World" challenge.  

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #236-Color My World #dostamping
With today's color combo, I knew I would be reaching for a floral set.  As the Beautiful Bouquet Bundle products just arrived, I grabbed them and started stamping.  For this bundle, I think just diving in and playing is a good start.  The sample in the catalog (pg 93) caught my eye and I decided to CASE it - changing the colors to match the challenge.  

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Bouquet Bundle card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC236 #dostamping

Beautiful Bouquet Bundle card

  1. Run 4" x 5-1/4" Fresh Fig through Big Shot with Polka Dot Basic Texture Folder.  Adhere to folded 11" x 4-1/4" Fresh Fig card base.
  2. Stamp greeting (Beautiful Bouquet stamp set) with Soft Suede ink in corner of Whisper White Stitched Shapes Framelit (2-5/8" square).  Adhere to 3" Old Olive Layering Squares Framelits (3" scallop square).   Adhere to card front.
  3. Build "bouquet of flowers":
    • stamp flowers = Sweet Sugarplum & Coral Calypso (with Soft Suede for centers) - die cut with matching shapes (Bouquet Bunch Framelits Dies)
    • die cut leaves = Old Olive, flowers bunches = Sweet Sugarplum & Coral Calypso
    • stamp "wrap" = Soft Suede ink (stamped off) - die cut with matching shape
    • arrange & assemble bouquet on Silicon Craft Sheet with Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals (I found the craft sheet to be forgiving when I wanted to rearrange the flowers).  
    • Wrap 1/8" Coral Calypso Sheer Ribbon around "bunch" and tie in a bow.  
    • Adhere bouquet to card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  4. Attach Gold Faceted Gems

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Bouquet Bundle card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC236 #dostamping

What better way to play with a new bundle set then CASEing a catalog sample.  That way you get a feel for how the stamps work with the dies.  Then the creative juices take over from there to make your own creations.  With so many awesome samples to choose from this year, you'll always have new ideas at the ready!

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #232: Happy Birthday Gorgeous Sneak Peek

It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge.  This week we're having a "Color My World" challenge.  

DOSstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #232-Color My World

For this week's color combo I substituted the new Berry Burst In Color for Melon Mambo.  It's a deeper richer shade of Melon Mambo and I think it works.

Today's sneak peek is the new Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.  This set is filled with lots of greetings and blend of floral and balloon images to create the perfect card for several different occasions.  It's also features the new Lovely Words Thinlits Dies.  But unlike yesterday's card -  just the word cut out is used for today's card.  I really think I'm gonna enjoy the versatility of these dies! 

Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday Gorgeous card created by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC232 #dostamping

Happy Birthday Friend QC card

  1. Die cut Old Olive 3-1/16" wide oval (Layering Oval Framelits).  Place on 4" x 5-1/2" piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Use a pencil to mark a few spots around the oval (so you know where to stamp).
  2. Around the "oval pencil marks" stamp flowers/leaves (Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set) with Berry Burst, Fresh Fig, Perfect Plum, Sweet Sugarplum & Old Olive inks.
  3. Die cut "friend" from Berry Burst cardstock with Lovely Words Thinlits dies.  Snip off word and adhere to oval with Fine Tip Glue Pen.  Then adhere to card with Stampin' Dimensionals
  4. Tie a bow with the new Crushed Curry 3/8" Mini Chevron Ribbon and adhere with glue dots.
  5. Attach Glitter Enamel Dots
