Last Chance Products: Dawn's Floral Favorites

This time of year I'm often asked what my favorites are from Stampin' Up!'s retiring Last Chance List.  Today I'm sharing my Floral Favorites - my must haves that I will miss!

You know the saying, "April showers bring May flowers".

Well, you won't want to wait to pick up these floral beauties, as they will be retiring soon.  No matter what type of flower tickles your fancy, I'm sure you will find something to love.

Beary Comforting Paper Pumpkin kit December 2020 #dostamping #paperpumpkin #alternatives #birthdaycards

How'd She DO That Quick & Cute Hooray Card:

  • Trim out a 2-1/2" x 5-1/4" piece from a printed envelope (from kit).  Adhere to 4" x 5-1/4" white panel, and then to 4-1/4" x 11" folded Blackberry Bliss card base.
  • Cut a Coral Calypso heart using the Heart Punch Pack. 
  • The sentiment (from kit) is stamped with Coral Calypso ink .  It's cut with the coming soon Double Oval Punch (154242).  The Blackberry Bliss scallop oval is cut with the same punch.  I think this is gonna be a new favorite of mine!
  • Finish off with the cute cupcake die cut (from kit) and Elegant Faceted Gems

 

Beary Comforting Paper Pumpkin kit December 2020 #dostamping #paperpumpkin #alternatives

  • Trim out 2-3/4" x 4" pieces from the striped card base (from kit).  Both the front and back.  Adhere them to 4-1/4" x 11" folded Crumb Cake card base.
  • Arrange the bears and flower die cuts and adhere to card.
  • Stamp sentiment with Coral Calypso ink on small label die cut and adhere with dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Gorgeous Posies Get Well card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdSheDOthat #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting

  • This is a *Distinktive* stamp set; it has a special texture that gives added depth and dimension in a single step, creating photo-realistic images

  • Stamps:  Gorgeous Posies
  • Paper:
    • Whisper White Thick (11" x 4-1/4" card base and scrap for smallest Stitched Shapes circle)  
    • Whisper White (4" x 5-1/4")
    • Just Jade (scrap for Story Label Punch)
  • Ink:  Magenta Madness, Just Jade
  • Other:   Story Label Punch, Stitched Shapes Dies, 1/4" Magenta Madness Ribbon, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Stampin' Seal, Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals

Stampin' Up! Gorgeous Posies Get Well card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdSheDOthat #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

DOstamping Tips:

  • Stamp the entire Whisper White panel with large flower (Magenta Madness) and leaf (Just Jade) images - but STAMP OFF on a piece of scratch paper first.
  • Stamp “dots” & sentiment at “full-strength".
  • Adhere ribbon to Story Label punch out.  Lay out like a "bow" shape.  Then adhere sentiment with Stampin' Dimensionals.

 

If you like the Gorgeous Posies stamp set (153289), you'll love the Gorgeous Posies Project Kit (153131) too!

Stamping with the STARS #311: Spotlighting Technique Inspiration

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts311.  This week we're having fun with the Spotlighting Technique!

DOstamping with the STARS, Spotlighting Technique Inspiration Hop #DOswts311 #dostamperSTARS #stampinupSpotlighting Technique using Dandelion Wishes byStampin' Up!, created by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #DOswts311

OK, I have to admit it.  When I was going through my stamp sets to select just the right image for the Spotlighting Technique, I did not even consider the Dandelion Wishes set.  But for some reason it "spoke to me" and  jumped into my hands.  So I went with it.  I'm glad I did, as I'm happy with the results.

How'd She DO That? Dandelion Wishes card:

  • Whisper White Thick (11" x 4-1/4" card base) 
  • Whisper White (4" x 3" and scrap)
  • Night of Navy (4-1/2" x 3-1/2" and scrap)

Spotlighting Technique using Dandelion Wishes byStampin' Up!, created by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #DOswts311

Spotlighting Technique Instructions:

  • Select a stamp set to use ("outline images" work nicely for this technique)
    • I used Dandelion Wishes
  • Stamp image with black or neutral ink
    • I used Night of Navy
  • Stamp again with same ink on a scrap piece
    • or a different colored ink for more "solid image" type - I used Mango Melody
  • Die cut or punch out only a PORTION of the extra stamped image into a circle (or square, etc) to become the spotlight.
    • I used the 1" Circle and 1-1/8" Scallop Circle Punches. 
  • If needed, color the spotlight piece and layer onto a colored cardstock matte.
  • Then adhere the spotlight piece over the original image, lining up both images.

Wouldn't this be a nice card to let someone know you're thinking of them?

Let your stamps "speak" to you and give the Spotlighting Technique a try!

Enjoy~Dawn O

October 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit: Last of Friends of a Feather Alternates

I can't get enough of the Friends of a Feather October Paper Pumpkin Kit!

I was determined to use up the entire kit before the November kit arrives....and I finished them up last week.  Here's my last two ideas (plus one from a team member)...

Friends of a Feather October 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit ideas by Dawn Olchefske #stampinup #paperpumpkin #cardmaking #cardkit #rubberstamping #diy #friendsofafeather

Friends Stick Together Note Card

  • Trim off the Fresh Fig panel from the 3-panel note card (save for card below)
  • Adhere 3-3/8" x 4-7/8 piece of Night of Navy cardstock under card front with glue dots (in the 4 corners and the "label" area)
  • Adhere Night of Navy label to card front (from kit).
  • Stamp greeting with Night of Navy ink on blue flowered label (from kit).   Add SNAIL adhesive to backside.  Don't attach yet
  • Wrap Silver Metallic Thread around 4 fingers, 4-5 times, then press into the adhesive.  Add Stampin' Dimensionals and adhere to card front.
  • Attach two Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Friends of a Feather October 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit idea shared by Dawn Olchefske #stampinup #paperpumpkin #cardmaking #cardkit #rubberstamping #diy #friendsofafeather (Bernadette Baio)

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)

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!
