DOstamping Tips:

  • For Watercoloring:
    • Stamp Rooster on Watercolor Paper and watercolor while you make the card. 
    • This way each color layer is completely dry before another layer of color. 
    • Start with the lightest and worked up to the darkest color.
  • For Double Z card:
    • Score and fold Mango Melody card base, and then adhere Designer Series Paper (as shown)
    • Score and fold Real Red strip.  Adhere smallest area of the strip to the right edge of the card. 
    • Fold strip and card closed at the same time, and then adhere left edge of strip to left edge of card.

The Double Z Fold card is one of those Fun Folds that's quick and easy to do.  Also easy to get addicted to, as you'll want to create a variety of cards with it.   

Tomorrow is my Bi-Monthly Facebook LIVE with Dawn (Thursday, March 14th at 4pm central time).  I'll be demonstrating this style of card (hopefully Facebook will be up and running again).  Be sure to visit my Facebook Business page here:  https://www.facebook.com/DOstampingwithDawn/

DOstamping with the Stars Chevron Folding Inspiration Hop #DOswts310 #dostamperSTARS #stampinup

 

Chevron Fold Technique using Stampin' Up! Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #chevronfolding #birthdaycards

I'm using the Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper The minute I saw the paper, I was drawn to the butterfly and stitched pattern.  It works perfectly for today's Chevron Fold.

How'd She DO That? measurements for Needlepoint Nook Chevron card:

  • Night of Navy (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base) 
  • Whisper White (5-1/4"  x  3-3/4")
  • Balmy Blue (5-1/4" x 4")
  • Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper (five of 1" x 2-1/2")

Chevron Folding Technique from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping

DOstamping Chevron Folding Tips

  • Cut 5 pieces of Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper to 1" x 2-1/2"
  • For 3 pieces, fold left corner over, squaring it off with the opposite edge.  Turn and repeat on the other end.
  • For 2 pieces, fold right corners over
  • Arrange pieces on a panel that is 5-1/4" long by whatever width you desire.  Start with a left corner fold, then alternate every other piece.
  • Once satisfied with the layout, adhere in place.

As you can see, Chevron Folding is not only fun, but easy!  Be sure to give it a try!  

And...if you like this cute butterfly stitched pattern from the Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper, you'll want to add it to your shopping bag.

Stamping With The Stars Inspiration Hop: Pop up Diorama Fun Fold cards

I've heard from many of you that you've been missing the DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenges.  We took a break from them during the holidays.  Then decided we wanted to change it up. 

Stamping with the STARS inspiration hop #dostamperstars #stampinup #dostamping

I'm excited to introduce...Stamping with the STARS!   

We'll now be sharing inspiration on Saturdays, twice a month.   Not only will you be able to see creations shared on our inspiration hops, but you will also be able to see inspiration shared on Facebook via hashtags.  This week's hash tag is #DOswts308.  

NOTE:  as this is the first time we've added Facebook to our sharing, it may take a couple months to get up and running on that platform (as more STARS join in).  But we're excited to give you another option to see our creations!

This week we're sharing ideas made using the Pop-up Diorama Fun Fold card!

Stampin' Up! Sweetest Thing Pop Up Diorama Card by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #DOswts308 #funfold  #birthdaycards

There are lots of tutorials out there with different measurements.  I used the Splitcoaststampers Tutorial, that was done by my friend, Julie Davison.  See measurements, scoring and tips below.

How'd She DO That? tips for Sweetest Thing card:

  • Stamps:  Sweetest Thing
  • Paper:
    • Gorgeous Grape (10-1/2" x 5-1/2" - score at 3-1/2, 6-1/2, 7" and 10") 
    • Gorgeous Grape (1/2" x 3-1/4", 1/2" x 2-3/4")
    • Whisper White (2-3/4" x 5-1/4", scraps for labels
    • How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper (5-1/4" x 6-1/2", 2-3/4" x 1", and scraps for die cutting jars)
  • Ink: Highland Heather, Coastal Cabana
  • Other:  Big Shot, Jar of Sweets Framelits Dies, Rhinestone Basic Jewels,  Tear & Tape, and Stampin' Dimensionals

Stampin' Up! Sweetest Thing Pop Up Diorama Card by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #DOswts308 #funfold  #birthdaycards

DOstamping Tips:

  • Score card, then fold on all score lines.  Then fold flat, it into thirds, to make sure everything lines up.   
  • Then burnish the edges with a Bone Folder.
  • Before adhering together, cut opening with a punch or die shape.  (this is important to do in the right order...how do I know?  ha!)
  • To adhere, fold it flat again, into thirds, allowing the adhesive to naturally adhere where it needs to go.  
  • Burnish the adhesive area, then open it up and voila!

Stampin' Up! Sweetest Thing Pop Up Diorama Card by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #DOswts308 #funfold  #birthdaycards

Did you know?

  • Some of the shapes on the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper match the shape of the coordinating Jar of Sweets Framelits Dies.
  • How sweet!!

Stampin' Up! Sweetest Thing Pop Up Diorama Card by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #DOswts308 #funfold  #birthdaycards

  • When you use a darker color for your card, you'll want to add a white layer to the left inside panel. 
  • Then there will be a place to sign your card.

I had SO much fun putting this card together.  The Pop-Up Diorama card is not only a fun fold, but it's an easy fold!  Give it a try...I think you'll like it.

In addition, the How Sweet It Is Suite of products was also fun to play with.   Add it to your shopping bag today!  

Enjoy~Dawn O

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #298: Country Home Fun Fold Card

It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge.  This week we're having a "Product Spotlight" challenge.  

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC298 Product Spotlight #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy

If you're looking for stamp sets that are perfect for coloring with Stampin' Blends, the 2018 Holiday Catalog is filled with lots of choices!  One of them being, the Country Home stamp set, which at first look, I didn't get.  I know, I know...what was I thinking? 

After seeing my DOstamperSTARS stamping community's creations, I broke down and got it.  And...I'm so glad I did. The images are perfect for Stampin' Blends.

Double Dutch Door Fun Fold Card by Dawn Olchefske, uses Stampin' Up!  Country Home, Tin Tile Texture Folder & Stampin' Blends for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC298 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #stampinblends, #countryhome

This is one of the cards I offered at my Local Stamping Club Class this week (I have a TO GO option too).  It was a hit, as it featured the Double Dutch Door Fun Fold and the Stampin' Blends

The card "style" was shared with me by my friend & fellow demonstrator, Julie Davison (I love her work!),. Let's dive into this fun fold card.  

How'd She DO That? tips for Double Dutch Door Fun Fold card:

Everyone had so much fun coloring this Country Home image with Stampin' Blends.  I heard many comments on how soothing it was to color with them.  For me, my favorite thing about Stampin' Blends is...they make me feel like an artist.  Here's the list of what was used.

  • Mango Melody Combo Pack
  • Mint Macaron Combo Pack
  • Old Olive Combo Pack
  • Blackberry Bliss Combo Pack
  • Dark Crumb Cake
  • Dark Soft Suede

Stampin' Blends are not just for paper.  You can also color our Basic Pearls and Rhinestone Jewels (among other surfaces), which were colored with the Dark Blackberry Bliss Stampin' Blend Marker.

Be sure to check out all of the products from the Country Lane Suite and add them to your shopping bag today!

Healing Hugs: Card Cutting Trick

Today's project feature's a new stamp set called Healing Hugs.  It's a "Distinktive" stamp which allows different shading to come through a single stamped image for a photo-realistic flower (scroll down to learn more about this stamp set.)

Card cutting trick by Dawn Olchefske, Stampin' Up! Healing Hugs #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #getwellcards #healinghugs

When making this card, I wanted to create a simple but unique card front.  It needed to be easy, as I was making 26 of them for a swap.  So here's what I came up with...

Card cutting trick by Dawn Olchefske, Stampin' Up! Healing Hugs #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #getwellcards #healinghugs

DOstamping Card Cutting Trick:

  • After folding a 11" x 4-1/4" card base in half, I trimmed off 3-1/4" from the front (at the time, I just eye-balled that measurement).   
  • Then I thought, "how can I incorporate the cut-off piece into my card?"  
  • As the cut-off piece now measured 4-1/4" x 3-1/4", I cut a piece of white to 4" x 3", stamped and layer them together.  
  • That layer is adhere to the left side of the card only, with Stampin' Dimensionals
  • It was exactly what I had in my head and worked out perfectly (which doesn't always happen)

Card cutting trick by Dawn Olchefske, Stampin' Up! Healing Hugs #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #getwellcards #healinghugs

Measurements for Healing Hugs card:

  1. Stamps: Healing Hugs
  2. Paper:
    • Rich Razzleberry (11" x 4-1/4" card base, score at 5-1/2", then trim off 3-1/4" from the card front - save) 
    • Whisper White (4" x 5-1/2" inside, 3" x 4", scrap for punch)
    • Gray Granite (4-1/4" x 3/4")
  3. Ink: Rich Razzleberry
  4. Other:  Tailored Tag Punch, Tea Room Combo Pack Ribbon & Stampin' Dimensionals

Besides the beautiful flower, what drew me to the Healing Hugs stamp set was the greetings.  I don't have many "Gel Well" greetings and this stamp set has four to choose from (I like choices).  Add it to your shopping bag today!   

Enjoy~Dawn O
