guestSTAR Sunday: Connie Plaumann with So Very Grateful

Today I'd like to introduce DOstamperSTAR, Connie Plaumann.  She joined my STARS community two and a half years ago and has been a wonderful addition to our group.  She's always ready to share and was a perfect choice to be a guestSTAR on our DOstamperSTARS private facebook group (a social sharing gorup for members of my downline).  

Connie's So Very Grateful Frame Card

So-Very-Grateful-sm

She selected the stamp set So Very Grateful (133050w or 133053c) as her feature and came up with several projects, sharing them throughout the month.  

Check out all her So Very Grateful projects:

Thank you Connie for sharing your time and talents with us!

Enjoy~Dawn O

PS: this Occasions Catalog stamp set did not make it in the new Annual Catalog.  So you'll want to get yours today!

guestSTAR: Bobbi Peterson, Love You to the Moon!

We have a guestSTAR program for the DOstamperSTARS community on our private facebook group.  Each month, someone shares 4 projects with our group, one each Saturday.  Last month our guestSTAR was the fabulously talented Bobbi Peterson, who shared some adorable Valentine Theme projects using Stampin' Up!'s Love You To The Moon stamp set (from the Occasions Catalog).  Take a look...

Speaking of DOstamperSTARS...

Recently I've been receiving several "requests to join" our private facebook group.  This is a private group, exclusively for STARS.  You too can join our wonderful community of STARS, when you join Stampin' Up! with me!  With Sale-a-Bration going on, now is one of the best times to join and I'd love to have you join my Community of STARS!

PLUS:  Stampin' Up! is offering free Convention Registration to new demonstrators.  Wowee!  That's like a $295 gift, to experience the most awesome Stampin' Up! event of the year!

SAB-Join

When you join the STARS Community, here's what I can offer you...

  • A variety of ways to connect, learn, and grow (and of course, have fun!)
  • Connecting online:
    • Private Blog - for reminders, swaps, videos, challenges, training and more.
    • Private Facebook Groups - general business and creative chatting/sharing, swapping, blogging, convention group and more!
  • Meetings - both local and online or virtual
  • Recognition & Incentives

I also get frequently asked... "How can I make it work?"
That's a great question!  The answer is...that's up to you, your goals and the amount of work/effort you put into it.  Everyone is different, so success looks different to each individual person.  For some, success is making their $300 quarterly order requirement.  For other's, succss is making additional money to cover a household bill or more (or buy more stamps!).  Either way -  I'm here to support and guide you in through the process.  That's what I do best.  If you reach out and want the help - I'm here for you!

Here's some basic information about joining Stampin' Up!:

I look forward to you joining my STARS!

Guest Stamper Sunday: Robin Anderson

It's Guest Stamper Sunday and today I'm featuring another DOstamperSTAR, from Minnesota, Robin Anderson.  

Robin joined Stampin' Up! a couple years ago and this year started doing stamp classes.  She's having a lot of success with them and has been sharing some of her class cards with our group.  She doesn't have a blog.  However, I believe she shares on Facebook.

Here's a couple cards from her most recent class...

stampin up, dostamping, dawn olchefske, demonstrator, robin anderson, jolly bingo bits, christmas

Jolly Bingo Bits (120857w or 121187c)

 

stampin up, dostamping, dawn olchefske, demonstrator, robin anderson, poinsetta, bird builder punch,, punch art, christmas

Poinsettia made with Bird Builder Punch (117191)

 

stampin up, dostamping, dawn olchefske, demonstrator, robin anderson, merry minis punch pack, punch art, christmas


How clever is this card?  She used mulitiple Silver Glimmer Paper (124005) trees to make a full tree!  The tree and star shape are from the Merry Minis Punch Pack (126882) and includes an ornament shape too. From the Holiday Catalog ending Jan 2nd.

 

stampin up, dostamping, dawn olchefske, demonstrator, robin anderson, christmas, punch art, bell

Robin's last card is a personal card she made for her fellow handbell choir members.  The bell uses oval punches.  The clever handle is from a retire set called Something Sweet.

Doesn't she do a great job?  Thank you Robin , for sharing your talent for cardmaking with us.  It makes me smile!

Guest Stamper Sunday: Heidi Vinkemeier

DOstamperSTAR Heidi Vinkemeier is my Guest Stamper today.  Heidi is in my second level and just celebrated her one year Stampin' Up! anniversary!  I recently found out that not only is she a stamper, but she sews!

She's been wowing us we some fabric projects and is sharing some of them with you today.  Here's the first one I fell in love with...her Fabric Tabletop Organizer!

Guest Stamper Sunday: Laurie Zoellmer

DOstamperSTAR Laurie Zoellmer is my Guest Stamper today.  The one thing (among many) I like about Laurie is, she isn't afraid of trying new things.  Someone like myself, might say, I'll try that some day.  Not Laurie, she just dives right in and does it!  Like her first project, No Sew Fabric Paper Snip Holder.

stampin up, dostamping, dawn olchefske, demonstrator, laurie zoellmer, new sew, fabric paper snips holder, summer smooches designer fabric

First of all, Laurie chose the super cute Summer Smooches Designer Fabric - love it!  Plus, the beauty of this little holder is, it's cut with the Petal Cone Die.  I love her finishing touch of the flower (Blossoms Party Originals Die) and button.  She even put together a photo tutorial on her blog, so you can make one too!  See the link below.

stampin up, dostamping, dawn olchefske, demonstrator, lacy and lovely, betsys blossoms, laurie zoellmer

This card is a perfect example of Laurie's stamping style, clean and simple (CAS).  It features the Lacy & Lovely (122885w or 122887c) and Betsy's Blossoms (126004w or 126006c) stamp sets.

I have to let you know...Laurie has been laid up for a couple weeks as she had surgery on her thumb.  She is on the mend, but it's been a struggle for her to stamp and prepare for her classes.  She hasn't asked for any help.  I even offered to help her with cutting for her classes and she said no, thanks.  It's gonna be a few more weeks before she's fully mended and back to her normal stamping activity.  So be sure to stop by her blog and give her some lovin'!

You can find her at Laurie's Stampin' Spot Blog and be sure to:

Thank you Laurie, for sharing your talent and love of Stampin' Up! with us!

It's Guest Stamper Sunday again and today I'm featuring  DOstamperSTAR Jan Carlson, aka: The Halloween Queen! 

That's right, Jan loves everything Halloween.  If I'm looking for Halloween inspiration, she's my go-to person.  Jan is also celebrating her Stampin' Up! 5 year anniversary this month!  

Today's she sharing a couple Halloween projects (of course!) with us.  First up is a spooky, Googly Ghouls Soot Stamping Technique card.  (Soot Stamping Video)

Guest Stamper Sunday: "Out of the Box" Bobbi Peterson

Oh my gosh...you are in for a treat today. It's Guest Stamper Sunday again and today I'm featuring a DOstamperSTARS from MN, Bobbi Peterson.   As a hobby demonstrator for the past 3 years, I've seen Bobbi grow as a stamper and as a person.  I always enjoy her out-of-the box card making style and color choices...she has a knack for it!  As she's from southern MN, I don't get to see her as much as I would like to.  But it's always a joy when we do get together. 

Today, Bobbi is sharing a couple cards that she submitted for some of our DOstamperSTARS Creative Challenges this past summer.
