The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts327.  Today we're showcasing a non-card ideas

#DOswts327 | Stamping with the STARS non-card inspiration hop #DOstamperSTARS #dostamperSTARS

There's so many non-card ideas to choose from.  But at this time of year, I thought of ornaments or packaging, and landed on a Folded Star Ornament.  I made one of these easy ornaments 8 years ago (oh my).  Now is a good time to "bring it back"

I pulled out the Wrapped in Plaid Suite of products for my ornament.

  • Stamps: Perfectly Plaid 
  • Paper:

    • Shaded Spruce or Cherry Cobbler (1-1/2" square)
    • Whisper White (scrap for Classic Label Punch)
  • Ink: Cherry Cobbler

I made two ornament, using two different ribbon/twines.  I like the look of the Shaded Spruce/Gold ribbon, but preferred working with the Nature's Twine, as it was easier to thread through the Jingle Bell.

DOstamping Tips:

  • Fold each 3" DSP square in half.  Then open and fold in half the other direction.  Then open and flip over...fold corner to corner.  Use Bone folder to crease folds.
  • Once folded, it should naturally want to fold down into a "squash" fold...to a 1-1/2" square.
  • Adhere folded squares together (keeping them folded and making sure the "open" corner match up. 
  • When the 5 squares are adhere, adhere a piece of twine or ribbon onto each each- approx 10" each.  The "ends" of the twine should come outwards from the "open" corners.  
  • Cover over the ends/twine with the 1-1/2" squares.  
  • Thread on Jingle Bell through both pieces of ribbon/twine (one piece at a twine).  Then tie the twine together with an overhand knot.  Pull down the bell to close the ornament.
  • Stamp/punch out sentiment and tie onto one of the pieces of ribbon with Whisper White Baker's Twine.
  • To open - pull bell out toward the knot.  Flip open the folded star and match ends up.  Then pull bell back down to the ornament.
  • If you want to see it in action, CLICK HERE.

The Folded Star Ornament is a great TV project.  Just put on your favorite Netflix show (we're watching The Crown right now) and settle in for some crafting and TV fun!

Stamping with the STARS #325: Sketch Toile Christmas (Cardinal or Bluejay)

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts326.  Today we're showcasing a fun Sketch! 

#DOswts326 | Stamping with the STARS Sketch inspiration hop #DOstamperSTARS #dostamperSTARS #christmascards #DOswts325 | Stamping with the STARS Shaker card inspiration hop #DOstamperSTARS #dostamperSTARS #christmascards

This sketch/layout has been a favorite of mine lately.  It's super easy to play with, and lots of stamp sets & suites will work with it too.  I chose to feature the Toile Tidings Suite.  Focusing on the...

The trick to this sketch is the Designer Series Paper.  Choose three coordinating patterns and cut each to 4" x 1-3/4"

DOstamping Tips:

  • The cardinal is stamped tone-on tone, Real Red. 
  • Finish off with a greeting and a touch of bling, with Gold Faceted Gems. 
  • For mass-producing Holiday cards, I recommend setting up your Stamparatus and you'll be done stamping in no time at all.

So, maybe red isn't your color.  Maybe you like blue.  Check out the bluejay!

For the bluejay, pull out your Pretty Peacock ink & paper.   Substitute Feels Like Frost 6"x 6" Designer Series Paper and you'll have a beautiful bluejay card.

Stamping with the STARS #325: Shaker Card Inspiration with Frosted Foliage

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts325.  Today we're showcasing Shaker cards! 

#DOswts325 | Stamping with the STARS Shaker card inspiration hop #DOstamperSTARS #dostamperSTARS #christmascards

I knew right away I was going to reach for the Feels like Frost Suite of Products.  I'm tickled with the way it turned out.

Fun & Easy Shaker card using Stampin' Up!'s Frosted Foliage Bundle from Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS Inspiration #DOswts325 #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #dostamperstars

How'd She DO That? Frosted Shaker card:

  • Stamps/Bundles: Frosted Foliage (bundle with Frosted Frame dies and SAVE 10%)
  • Paper:
    • Purple Posy (5-1/2" x 8-1/4" card base)
    • Seaside Spray (5" x 4-1/4 for die cut frame)
    • Window Sheets (2-5/8" x 2-7/8)
    • Feels Like Frost 6x6 Specialty Designer Series Paper (2-3/4" x 5-1/2")
  • Ink:  Versamark
  • Heat Emboss:  Swipe Embossing Buddy over Window Sheet.  Stamp greeting with Versamark ink (being careful to stamp straight down, then pull straight up).  Cover with White Stampin' Emboss Powder, then flick off the excess.   To avoid warping the window sheet, melt with Heat Tool by starting under the window sheet, then above window sheet, rotating back and forth until powder is melted.
  • Other:  Frosted Frames Dies,  Shimmery Crystal Effects, Ice Stampin' Glitter, Snail Adhesive & Foam Adhesive Strips

Fun & Easy Shaker card using Stampin' Up!'s Frosted Foliage Bundle from Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS Inspiration #DOswts325 #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #dostamperstars

DOstamping Shaker Card Tips:

  • Adhere DSP to folded card base.
  • Die cut "frosted frame".  Then die cut a "window frame" from center. 
  • Stamp and heat emboss window sheet as described above.  Then adhere window sheet to back of frame using Foam Adhesive strips.  (note: half will be on the window sheet and half will be on the frame.)  
  • At this point, I do recommend swiping the embossing buddy over the inside of the window sheet (will help a lot with static cling)
  • ONLY remove 2 backing sheets (the top and one side) from the Foam Adhesive strips and adhere those edges to the DSP on the card.
  • Then add approximately 1/2 teaspoon of Snowflake Sequins to inside the window.
  • Remove the last two strips of backing sheets to seal off the shaker.
  • OPTIONAL:  prior to adhering the window sheet to the frame, use the new Shimmery Crystal Effects and Ice Stampin' Glitter to add "frost" to the foliage on the frame (will take about 15 minutes to dry).  I like to do this on the Silicone Craft Sheet.

That might seem like a lot of steps, but it came together surprisingly fast.  

If you enjoy making fun technique cards and want to spread a little yuletide cheer, this Frosted Shaker Card is for you!  Be sure to  add the Frosted Foliage Bundle to your shopping bag today!

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.

4 Bone Appetit Paper Pumpkin kit alternative ideas shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #papercrafting  #craftkitsinthemail

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:

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

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

Stamping with the STARS #322: Come To Gather Sketch

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts322.  This week we're showcasing a fun and easy sketch.

#DOswts322 | Stamping with the STARS Sketch inspiration hop #DOstamperSTARS #sketch #dostamperSTARS #DOswts322 | Stamping with the STARS Sketch inspiration hop #DOstamperSTARS #sketch

For today's sketch inspiration, I pulled out some new product from the 2019 Holiday Catalog Come To Gather Suite.

Holiday Catalog Come to Gather sketch card by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #DOswts322 #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #dostamperSTARS

Fall is my favorite time of year! 

So it was natural the Come To Gather Designer Series Paper caught my attention.  It was a perfect choice for today's sketch.

How'd She DO That? Come To Gather card:

  • Stamps/ Bundles: Gather Together Bundle (includes Gathered Leaves Dies - save 10%)  
  • Paper:
    • Gray Granite (11" x 4-1/4" card base)
    • Whisper White (3" x 4-1/4", scrap for punch)
    • Cajun Craze (3/4" x 4-3/4")
    • Early Espresso (scrap for leaf die)
    • Come To Gather Designer Series Paper (1-1/4" x 4" wood, 1" x 4" dots )
  • Ink:  Early Espresso
  • Other:   Darling Label Punch Box (punch), Leaves Trinkets, Come To Gather Ribbon Combo, SNAIL, Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals

One of the fun things about the leave dies is, three of them both emboss and cut.  It adds a nice dimension to the card, don't you think?

This sketch is a keeper.  It's going in my bag of tricks for future card designs.  I definitely recommend giving it a try.

And...if you're a fall-lover like me, then you'll enjoy the Come To Gather Suite of products!  Add them to your shopping bag today!  

Enjoy~Dawn O
