Bridge Fun Fold card using Stampin' Up! Above the Clouds Bundle.  Card by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the Stars #DOswts316 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting, #funfold

Bridge cards are a fun fold style of card, named for the piece that "bridges the two sides together.  It's surprisingly easy to make and fun to decorate.

How'd She DO That? Above the Clouds Bridge card:

  • Bundle:  Above the Clouds Bundle (save 10% on stamp set and matching Hot Air Balloon Punch),
  • Paper:
    • Whisper White Thick (4-1/4" x 8" card base, score at  1-1/4" & 2-1/2" from each end)
    • Whisper White Thick (scraps for punching)
    • Coastal Cabana (5-1/2" x 1-1/4")
    • Designer Series Paper ( 1-1/8"  x 4-1/4 strips - two of blue and two of "colored stripes", 5-1/2" x 1-1/8")  )
  • Ink: Coastal Cabana, Calypso Coral, Pacific Point, Basic Gray
  • Other:  1-1/2" Circle Punch, SNAIL, Mini Stampin' Dimensionals and Tear & Tape.

DOstamping Tips:

  • Start with the card base (largest piece).  Complete the scoring, folding, stamping and decorating.
  • Then create and decorate the "bridge" piece.
  • Note:  For the "balloons solid shape" - stamp off the Coastal Cabana balloon image once.  Stamp-off the Calypso Coral balloon twice.
  • I recommend using Tear & Tape to adhere the "bridge" to the card base  (on the end panels only).
  • To see a video demonstration of  making a Bridge Fun Fold card, be sure to check out my How'd She DO That? video from last year.

Everything is Rosy Product Medley Day 2: #DOswts314 Collar Fold

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts314.  This week we're showcasing Collar Fun Fold cards! 

Stamping with the STARS Collar Fun Fold inspiration hop #DOswts314 #dostamperstars #papercrafting #stamping #cardmaking #funfolds Everything is Rosy Product Medley Collar Fun Fold card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup  #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting, #DOswts314 #funfold #dostamperstars

I knew right away I would be using the Everything is Rosy Product Medley for today's challenge. 

Immediately I was drawn to the light pink paper with small flower bunches.  It reminded of the dresses I used to put my daughters in when they were little.  I thought it might be fun to decorate the collar area to give the impression of a dress.

How'd She DO That? Everything is Rosy Collar Fun Fold card:

  • Product Medley: Everything is Rosy (stamp set, dies, DSP, mirror embellishments)
  • Paper:
    • Balmy Blue (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base) 
    • Whisper White (scraps for stamping & die cutting)
    • Designer Series Paper (4" x 5-1/4")
  • Ink: Night of Navy, Melon  Mambo
  • Other:  Big Shot, Pearlized Doilies & Stampin' Dimensionals

Everything is Rosy Product Medley Collar Fun Fold card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup  #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting, #DOswts314 #funfold #dostamperstars

Collar Fun Fold Tips:

  • At the middle of a long edge of 4" x 5-1/4" DSP, use scissors to cut in towards center about 2"  (experiment on scrap paper as needed)
  • Fold each side away from the cut edge.  I kept about a 3/4" edge at the top of each side (again, experiment as needed)
  • Adhere to folded card base, and stamp greeting.
  • Cut a doily in half, adhere under each "flap".  Then adhere each flap down with a Stampin' Dimensional.
  • Decorate with flower die cuts

DOstamping Tips:

  • On Whisper White cardstock, stamp large flower with Melon Mambo and large leaf with Night of Navy.
  • Ink smaller flower with Melon Mambo, stamp off on scratch paper, then onto Whisper White.  Repeat.  Stamp small dots with Night of Night.
  • Die cut all images with matching shapes.  
  • Arrange around collar and adhere with Stampin' Dimensionals and glue dots.
  • Finish off with mirror embellishment

I had so much fun with the Collar Fun Fold.  I know I'll be trying it again.  Have fun creating your own Collar Fun Fold cards and playing with the Everything is Rosy Product Medley!

Enjoy~Dawn O

Nine Lives OnStage Team Gifts & Clearance Rack Refresh

It's always exciting when the Clearance Rack refreshes! 

April 2019 Stampin' Up! Clearance Rack Refresh #dostamping #clearancerack #stampinup #bargainsgalore April 2019 Stampin' Up! Clearance Rack Refresh #dostamping #clearancerack #stampinup #bargainsgalore
If you're new to shopping with me, you may not be familiar with Stampin' Up!'s Clearance Rack.  You'll find discontinued items deeply discounted - awesome bargains.  Even I'm going to stock up on a few things!

Head on over to the Clearance Rack to shop and SAVE!

 


Speaking of the Clearance Rack...today I'm sharing a fun little gift I made for my DOstamperSTARS Team Members who attended OnStage.  It uses the adorable Nine Lives Stamp Set and the Sweet Soiree Ready Shreddie from the Clearance Rack (a great product to have around for gift packaging).  

Nine Lives Gift Box created by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #giftboxes #ONSTAGE2019 #minneapolisonstage2019 #dostamperSTARS

For each Stampin' Up! event, I try to do something special for my team.  This year, I found these cute Suction Cup Cat Phone Stands (see below) that I thought would be fun to package up using the Nine Lives stamp set.  They turned out super cute and everyone loved them!

How'd She DO That? Cat Gift Boxes:

  • Stamps: Nine Lives
  • Paper:  Smoky Slate (scrap for punch)
  • Ink: Tuxedo Black Memento Ink
  • Other:  Clear Tiny Treat Boxes, Cat Punch
  • Retiring:  Berry Burst Ribbon Metallic-Edge Ribbon, Petal Pink/Silver Baker's Twine, Mini Silver Sequin Trim
  • Clearance Rack:  Sweet Soiree Ready Shreddie

Nine Lives Gift Box Tags created by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #giftboxes #ONSTAGE2019 #minneapolisonstage2019 #dostamperSTARS

For a little added bling, I gave each cat tag a Silver Mini Sequin Trim collar...how cute!

Nine Lives Gift Box created by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #giftboxes #ONSTAGE2019 #minneapolisonstage2019 #dostamperSTARS

Here they all are at OnStage, along with DOstamperSTARS lanyards and name tag banners!

We had such a great time at OnStage, being together, swapping and seeing all of the "coming soon" products.  If you're looking for a fun group of stampers to join, you will enjoy the STARS.  Learn more here.

If you know me, I really love adding little touches like ribbon, trim and bling to my projects.  And if you're like me, you'll miss some of the retiring ribbon/trims (see shopping list below).  So, be sure to stock up on your favorites before they are gone.

Enjoy~Dawn O

Sharing Stampin' Up! OnStage Mpls: Swaps, Make & Takes, Loot

Last Saturday I had the pleasure to spend the day with over 1200 demonstrators (of which 18 were my STARS!).  Why?  Because Stampin' Up! was in Minneapolis, practically my backyard.  And as always - the event was fabulous.  

The Make & Takes

There's always time at a Stampin' Up! event to create with new products coming June 4th.  Below you'll find our four fabulous make & takes!

  • Fold flaps you fold in and attach together (use adhesive, brads or stapler). 
  • Then decorate.

Stamping with the STARS #312: Recessed Panel Card Inspiration

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts312.  This week we're having fun with Recessed Panel cards!

Stamping with the STARS Recessed Panel inspiration hop #DOswts312 #dostamperstars #papercrafting #stamping #cardmaking Needlepoint Nook Suite Recessed Panel card created by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #DOswts312

I've seen Recessed Panel cards around for years, but have never made one.  If you search for them, you'll find samples of horizontal, vertical and diagonal versions.  I chose the diagonal version, as I like the visual interest.   I got out the Needlepoint Nook Suite of products and started to play!

DOstamping Needlepoint Recessed card supplies:

  • Whisper White Thick (11" x 4-1/4" card base) 
  • Whisper White (5-1/2" x 4-1/4" and scrap for punch)
  • Old Olive (5-1/2" x 4-1/4")
  • Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper (3" x 6")
  • Rich Razzleberry (scrap for punch)

Needlepoint Nook Suite Recessed Panel card created by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #DOswts312

How'd She DO That? Recessed Panel Instructions:

  • On folded card base, adhere Designer Series Paper at a diagonal.  Align it at the bottom right corner, then align the opposite corner with the left edge of the card - see above.  (You could use a full panel of Designer Series Paper.  However, if you want your DSP to go farther, use a 3" x 6" piece.)
  • Cut both white and olive 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" panels at the same time.
    • Near the top left side, make a mark at 3/4" & 1-1/8".  On the right side, make a mark at 3" down from the top.
    • For top "half" - start at 3/4" mark on the left edge and cut diagonally over to 3" mark on the right edge.  Trim off 1/8" from top edge of white panel.
    • For bottom "half" - start at 1-1/8" mark on the left edge and cut diagonally down to the bottom right corner of the panels.  Trim off 1/8" from bottom edge of white panel.
    • Adhere white and olive panels together
  • Optional:  before adhering cut panels to card, add texture.
  • Adhere panels to card with Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Decorate as desired

Needlepoint Nook Suite Recessed Panel card created by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #DOswts312

Take a Closer Look:

  • Look at all of the fun "stitching" on the lower panel and the greeting label.  I was giddy to discover how fabulous it looks.  Both are from the Needlepoint Elements Framelits Dies.
  • The Pretty Label Punch is perfect to cut the greeting label.
  • The finishing touch is the Needlepoint Nook Mini Buttons and Old Olive Linen Thread.

Not sure why I waited so long to make a Recessed Panel card, it was fun to make.  Whether you make your panel vertical, horizontal or diagonal (like mine), I'm sure you'll have fun too!  Give it a try.

Enjoy~Dawn O
