Paper Pumpkin Gift of Fall: I've Got Alternatives For YOU!

Today I have a few alternate ideas for you to create with the  August 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Gift of Fall.

Paper Pumpkin Gift of Fall Add-On Bundle| Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

152885 Gift of Fall Add-On Bundle* - includes:

  • 24 card bases of 2 different designs with coordinating envelopes (note card size)
    • Cards: 5" x 3-1/2" 
    • Envelopes: 5-1/8" x 3-5/8" 
  • Not included with an August Paper Pumpkin subscription
  • The Gift of Fall Add-On Bundle is not needed to complete August kit projects
  • *Must be a current Paper Pumpkin subscriber to order this item.

When I first saw this kit, I felt it was too busy with too much color (for me).  Having said that, I had SO much fun creating with this kit.  You'll see a few creations below where I used a few of the kit's elements, yet toned them down which is more pleasing for my eye.

 


First up are two Note Cards made from one of the large printed tags (love it when I can get two cards from one element)!

Happy Thanksgiving Note Cards

Aug 2019 Gift of Fall Paper Pumpkin Kit Alternative ideas from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #paperpumpkin #stamping #cardmaking #papercrafting

How'd She DO That? Happy Thanksgiving Note Cards

  • Die cut 2-5/8" Stitched Shape Square (Merry Merlot and Pretty Peacock)
  • Using the 2" Circle Punch, carefully cut two circles from the printed leaves tag.  Adhere one to each square.  Then adhere squares to folded Whisper White Note Cards (and Envelops)
  • Decorate corner of square/circle with leaves dies - using glue dots
  • Stamp sentiments on narrow labels from kit, with coordinating colors (Merry Merlot and Pretty Peacock).  Adhere with dimensionals.
  • Finish off with a linen thread bow and sequin.

I'm super happy with the results of these cards.  I will definitely be making more of them!

Grateful Card & Treat Wrap

Aug 2019 Gift of Fall Paper Pumpkin Kit Alternative ideas from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #paperpumpkin #stamping #cardmaking #papercrafting

Here's another set of projects that I had fun creating.  Both are quick & cute projects, that I know you'll enjoy creating yourself!

How'd She DO That? Grateful Stencil Card

  • Use one of the leaves negative pieces from the kit as a "stencil"  (once you've removed all of the leaves). 
    • Place stencil over 2-3/4" x 4-1/2" piece of Pretty Peacock 
    • Use a Sponge Dauber and Versamark Ink Pad to dab ink over open spaces in the stencil, then remove.
  • Adhere to 3" x 4-1/4" piece of Crumb Cake.  Then adhere to 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" folded Old Olive card base.
  • Stamp sentiment with Pretty Peacock ink on the white back side of a Merry Merlot circle die cut from kit.  Add dimensionals to the back.
  • Arrange leaves with glue dots onto card, then attach sentiment.  Finish off with a sequin.

Enjoy Treat Wrap

Aug 2019 Gift of Fall Paper Pumpkin Kit Alternative ideas from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #paperpumpkin #stamping #cardmaking #papercrafting

How'd She DO That? Enjoy Treat Wrap

  • Stamp "enjoy" with Pretty Peacock ink on narrow label.  Trim down to 1-1/2".  Use Take Your Pick Tool and Stampin' Pierce Mat to create a hole in the label.  Also create a hole at the opposite end of the printed leaves tag.
  • Wrap Tag around treat (Hostess Mini Fruit Pie).
  • Thread twine through both tag holes and the label, tie off in a both.  
  • Decorate with leaves dies and sequin.

Again - I can see myself making more of both the card and the treat wrap - YUM!

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.

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop: Grown With Kindness

Paper Pumpkin Thing Monthly Blog Hop Dawn Olchefske #paperpumpkin #dostamping

Welcome to the A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop! 

I'm excited to join in with this talented group of stampers to share alternate ideas for Paper Pumpkin Kits.  Today we're sharing the February 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Grown With Kindness

Wanna get more cards out of your kit this month?  Then I've got the perfect alternate card idea for you!

Paper Pumpkin Grown With Kindness Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

All four of these cards use the same layout, using only one of the photo card panels.  Yes, that's right...4 cards from 1 panel.  I love it when I can stretch my Paper Pumpkin kits further!

Paper Pumpkin Grown With Kindness Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

Wrap them up in a Belly Band and give to someone special.

How'd She DO That? Measurements for (4): 

  • Cut one photo sheet into 4 pieces, measuring 2-1/8" x 1-7/8"
  • Basic Gray: (4) 2-1/8" x 1" pieces  (repeatedly stamp border image)
  • Whisper White: (4) 3" x 1-3/4"pieces - (stamp greeting)
  • (4) 3-1/4" x 4-1/4" (Fresh Fig, Basic Black, Mint Macaron)
  • (4) 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" card bases (Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Lemon Lime Twist, Fresh Fig)
  • Fresh Fig (1-1/4" x 11" for belly band)
  • Medallion:  1-3/4" Circle Punch (Lemon Lime Twist), 2" Circle Punch (Fresh Fig), Starburst Punch (Whisper White

I couldn't decide which color combination to go with, so I tried 4 different combo.

Paper Pumpkin Grown With Kindness Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

  • The Belly Band was used to wrap all 4 cards together.
  • The medallion was fun to create using one of the border stamps.  Stamp once horizontally, then again vertically (forming a cross).  The stamp two more times filling in between the spaces.
  • Experiment with the border images to see what you can create, outside-the-box.

Paper Pumpkin Grown With Kindness Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

For the above three cards:

  • I used the Fresh Fig Stampin' Spot included with the kit. 
  • The twine bows are attached with a glue dot.

Paper Pumpkin Grown With Kindness Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

  • This was the first one I made using Tuxedo Black Memento ink, for a classic black and white look. 

Well, I still couldn't decide which one I liked the best.  Which one do you like?

I hope you enjoyed these ideas. The next stop on our blog hop is Jenny Hall See the full list below. 

Enjoy~Dawn O

Meant to Be Sweet Cups

Oh my gosh - I'm so excited to share a fun Sweet Cup with you today!

I was shopping at Target and came across heart shaped Mini Mousse Cakes (Archer Farms) and they spoke to me! 

I haven't event eaten one yet.  It was my swap for my STARS team get-together potluck and shoebox swap that we had on Sunday.

Stampin' Up! Valentine Sweet Cups by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #stamping #diy #papercrafting #valentinetreats

It was so easy to put together and fun too!  I reached for the obvious, the All my Love Suite products.  When looking at this suite, don't forget to check out page 6 too, for the Meant To Be stamp set/bundle.

How'd She DO That? All My Love Sweet Cup:

  • Meant To Be stamp set
  • Sweet Cup
  • All My Love Designer Series Paper (for 2-7/8" Stitched Shape circle die)
  • Whisper White (scrap for Pretty Label Punch
  • Tuxedo Black Memento Ink
  • All of my Love Ribbon Combo Pack

Stampin' Up! Valentine Sweet Cups by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #stamping #diy #papercrafting #valentinetreats

DOstamping Tips:

  1. Use the 1/8" Circle Handheld Punch to cut two holes in the Sweet Cup (near each other) for the ribbon to thread through (so the ribbon stays in place)
    • NOTE:  Stampin' Up! just announced the 1/8" Circle Handheld Punch will be retiring and is currently only available while supplies last (due to the manufacturer discontinuing the product.)
  2. Thread ribbon through both holes, wrap around Sweet Cup and tie in a bow.  Slide bow all the way over to the holes (to cover them).
  3. Cut 3 pieces of tissue paper into 4" x 4" squares and place into Sweet Cup.  (I found the "valentine" colored tissue paper at Target)
  4. Place "Mini Mousse Cake" into Sweet Cup (mini cakes also found at Target)

Stampin' Up! Valentine Sweet Cups by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #stamping #diy #papercrafting #valentinetreats

I'm pretty sure any of your Valentine sweethearts will love receiving a cake filled Sweet Cup (or filled with any treat).  Add them to your shopping bag today, so they'll arrive in time for the special day!  

Enjoy~Dawn O

Stampin' Up! Be Mine Stitched Framelits Window Box (for Dove candy) by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperstars hop -  #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #papercrafting #diy #packagingideas #valentine

I was strolling the Valentine candy aisle a few weeks ago and came across these fun Dove Love Notes Caramel & Milk Chocolate Candy. 

Come to discover, when I opened my package, I was able to spell out a couple of words like; kiss & love.  I knew right away I wanted to make some sort of window box packaging.  So, through trial and error, I came up with a cute heart shape window box using the Be Mine Stitched Framelit Dies.

How'd She DO That? tips for DIY Dove Love Notes Candy Box:

Template for Stampin' Up! Be Mine Stitched Framelits Window Box (for Dove candy) by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperstars hop -  #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #papercrafting #diy #packagingideas #valentine

  • Whisper White (scrap for Classic Label Punch) 
  • Window Sheets (2-3/8" x 2-5/8")

  • Use the 2-1/8" x 2-1/4" Be Mine Stitched Heart Framelit to die cut window. 
  • Adhere window sheet with glue dot in each corner.
  • Assemble box with Tear & Tape Adhesive
  • Punch 1/8" hole on each side.
  • Thread ribbon through and tie off each end.
  • Add greeting (punched with Classic Label Punch) with Whisper White Baker's Twine.
  • Fill with Dove Love Notes candy

I forgot to tell you...I'm completely in love with the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies (you had me at "stitched"!). 

When you begin to die cut with them, you'll be surprised at all of the clever cutting options there are.  It's definitely a must-have for any papercrafter!  You'll find LOTS of uses for them.  Be sure to add it to your shopping bag today, so you can get started on your Valentine and love crafting.

Featuring DOstamperSTAR Terry Rajala

Today's stunning card was created by one of my DOstamperSTAR Team Members, Terry Rajala.  

Let me tell you a little bit about Terry.  She was a local customer of mine for many years, who attended any event/class I held.  Terry was the kind of customer who knew a lot about stamping and generously shared it with others.  She always helped someone who might have been struggling at her table and more!  For the past few years, I've been suggesting that Terry become a demonstrator and join my team, as she would be a natural.  Well...last Sale-a-Bration she joined!  And I'm so delighted to have her on my team.

Terry Rajala's Easel Calendar Card #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting 

Her card was SO stunning on the outside, that I never opened the clear envelope we use when swapping, to see the inside.  When I opened it to take a photo, "WOW" was all I could say!  I can't believe I waited so long.  Lesson learned...open the cards, there might be something special inside!  

I'm happy to share her card with you today!

Terry's Easel Calendar card:

  1. Stamps: Merry Christmas to All
  2. Paper:
    • Tranquil Tide (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base, score at 2-1/8" & 4-1/4", and scrap for punching) 
    • Whisper White  (5" x 3-375") 
    • Frosted Floral Designer Series Paper (5-1/4" x 4", 4-1/2" x 1-1/2")
  3. Ink: Tranquil Tide, Shaded Spruce Light Stampin' Blends (to color rhinestones)
  4. Other:  Big Shot, Seasonal Wreath Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Sprig Punch,  Rhinestone Basic Jewels
  5. Non-SU:  3" x 2-1/4" tear off calendar

Terry Rajala's Easel Calendar Card #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting 

This close-up gives you a better view of just how stunning her card is!

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop: To You and Yours Nov 2018 Holiday Acetate Gift Box

Paper Pumpkin Thing Monthly Blog Hop Dawn Olchefske #paperpumpkin #dostamping

Welcome to the A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop! 

I'm excited to join this talented group of stampers to share alternate ideas for Paper Pumpkin Kits.  Today we're sharing the November 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit - To You and Yours.

Nov 2018 Paper Pumpkin To You and Yours Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #toyouandyours #simplestamping

The Holiday Paper Pumpkin kit always one of my favorites that I look forward to receiving and this year's "To You and Yours" didn't disappoint.  I'm sharing a quick & cute Holiday Acetate Gift Box.     

On Tuesday, my Stamping Club Members made this box using the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper and thought that it might look nice with this month's Paper Pumpkin kit.  Again, I started with the patterned paper on the inside of the envelope (my favorite!)  See the instructions below...

How'd She DO That? Holiday Acetate Gift Box:

  1. Cut an Acetate Card Box in half at 4"  (this will make two boxes).
  2. Create Insert using a card base from the kit. 
    • Cut a 5-5/8" x 2-7/8" piece (don't worry where the score line lands). 
    • With 5-5/8" side against straight edge of trimmer, score at 3-1/4", 3-7/8" and 4-1/2". 
    • Ignoring the original score line - fold on score lines and insert into box
  3. Create cover using an envelope from the kit. 
    • Cut a 4-3/8" x 5" patterned piece.
    • With 5" side against straight edge of trimmer, score at 3" x 3-5/8". 
    • Fold on score lines and insert into box. 
    • TIP: I like to tuck the back piece to rest between the box and the closed lid.  Or you can put a couple glue dots on the back as well.
  4. Wrap completed box with twine from kit and tie in a bow - position it at the lower front of the box.  Put one dimensional over the twine near the bottom of the fold-over flap.
  5. Stamp greeting on a label from the kit.  Adhere one leaf to back, then adhere to fold-over flap with two dimensionals (one in each upper corner).  

Nov 2018 Paper Pumpkin To You and Yours Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #toyouandyours #simplestampingCreate two Mini Cards/Tags:

  1. Cut two 3" x 6" pieces of Very Vanilla cardstock.  Fold in half.
  2. Stampin greeting.  Stamp leaves with Garden Green ink (one stamped-off)
  3. Add sequin from kit.
  4. Use as gift card or tags.

Candy Bar Wrap (a small Hershey's Chocolate Bar). :

  • You should have a scrap leftover from the card base.  Cut down to 2-7/8" x 2-1/2".
  • Wrap tightly around the card, "creasing the edges" as you go around.
  • Adhere ends together on the back with glue dots.

I hope you enjoyed this fun Holiday Acetate Gift Box.  They make for great last minute gifts or for co-workers, teachers, etc.

Next stop on our blog hop is Candy Ford.  See the full list below.
