Apple Builder Punch: Pumpkin & Mercury Glass Designer Acetate

Today I'm sharing a couple of new products from the 2019 Holiday Catalog...Apple Builder Punch and the Mercury Glass Designer Acetate.

What happens when you combine the Apple Builder Punch to create beautiful die-cut apples (or pumpkins) for your projects with Mercury Glass Designer Acetate featuring a faux mercury glass finish on acetate sheets?

DOstamping Tips:

  1. The Mercury Glass Designer Acetate is rather thick.  DO NOT cut narrow strips (to save on paper) when punching out shapes using the Apple Builder Punch.  Be sure to punch all three shapes at the same time (apple/pumpkin, stem & leaf) to extend the life of your punch.
  2. Tips for assembling acetate pumpkin:
    1. adhere acetate to same shape of Come to Gather Designer Series Paper (I used the white pumpkins with Pretty Peacock leaves - but you can use any color/pattern behind the acetate.)
    2. adhere leaves trinket with glue dot
    3. tie off 2-1/4" piece of Crumb Cake ribbon with coordinating Cajun Craze linen thread - in a bow.  Adhere with glue dot.
    4. flip pumpkin over and adhere stem with glue dot on the backside.

The Mercury Glass Designer Acetate will add a touch of vintage shimmer to all your projects this season.  Don't forget to get the Apple Builder Punch so you can create a bushel or two of beautiful die-cut apples (or pumpkins) for your projects. Add these seasonal favorites to your shopping bag today!

Enjoy~Dawn O

Stampin' Up! Beauty & Joy: Easy Spotlight Card

Today I'm sharing a card that made me smile when I made it...love it when that happens.  First off, I'm using a new 2019 Holiday Catalog stamp set called, Beauty & Joy.  

2019 Holiday Catalog Beauty & Joy stamp set, with EASY Spotlight Technique by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

This Distinktive* stamp set has a special texture that gives added depth and dimension in a single step, creating photo-realistic images.  The basket particularly shows off the Distinktive style. 

How'd She DO That? Beauty & Joy Spotlight card

  • Stamps: Beauty & Joy
  • Paper:
    • Crumb Cake (8-1/2" x 4-1/4" card base) 
    • Very Vanilla (3-1/2" square)
    • Early Espresso (3-5/8" square)
  • Ink:  Crushed Curry, Terracotta Tile, Soft Suede, Early Espresso
  • Other:   Sponge Daubers, Stitched Rectangle Dies, Linen Thread, SNAIL, Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals

2019 Holiday Catalog Beauty & Joy stamp set, with EASY Spotlight Technique by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

DOstamping Tips:

  1. I recommend stamping the images from the bottom, building to the top.
  2. For the leaves, ink stamp first with Crushed Curry.  Before stamping, use a Sponge Dauber to add Terracotta Tile ink randomly to the leaves.  Breathe on stamp to re-moisten and then stamp.
  3. Stamp sentiment slightly overlapping leave image.
  4. To create the "spotlight" - die cut sentiment with Stitched Rectangle Die.
  5. When assembling card - adhere sentiment last with Stampin' Dimensionals.

2019 Holiday Catalog Beauty & Joy stamp set, with EASY Spotlight Technique by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

When I first started stamping this card, I wasn't sure what direction I was going.  I thought I'd add the sentiment as a separate layer.  But I didn't want it to cover up the two-toned leaves.  Then the idea hit me..."spotlight" the sentiment.  It was the perfect way to step-up this card just a little bit.  And...it was a hit at my club class last week!

Your day with bloom with beauty and joy as you create amazing projects using the Beauty & Joy Stamp Set.  I definitely recommend adding it to your Shopping Bag today!

Enjoy~Dawn O

Gorgeous Stampin' Up! Tasteful Textures Bundle Card!

Here's a card we made at my Stamp Club class a couple weeks ago using the new Tasteful Textures Bundle (save 10%)...

Stampin' Up! Tasteful Textures Bundle card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

If this card looks familiar to you, that's because I CASE'd it from the Tasteful Textures Bundle sample found in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog (pg 11).  The sample immediately caught my eye and I knew I had to make it.

Stampin' Up! Tasteful Textures Bundle card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

However, once I started to make it, I wasn't feeling the color combo.  I changed the color of the card base (from Mint Macaron to Mossy Meadow) and then...aahhh, I was feeling it. 

Do you feel colors?  I know I do.  Sometimes when I'm not feeling like my card isn't quite what I had in mine, I change up the color and then I'm satisfied.  I literally feel much more content.  Weird, huh?

DOstamping Tasteful Textures card:

  • Stamps:  Tasteful Textures
  • Paper:
    • Mossy Meadow (5-1/2" x 8-1/2" card base, score at 4-1/4")
    • Soft Sea Foam (scrap for 2-5/8" Stitched Square Die)
    • Whisper White: (1-1/4" x 2-1/2")
  • Ink:  Mossy Meadow
  • Other:  Linen Thread, Bird Ballad Trinkets, 3/8” Reversible Pretty Peacock/Old Olive Ribbon (7"), Tasteful Background Dies, Stitched Shapes (largest square), Stampin Dimensionals, Snail Adhesive, Glue Dots

Stampin' Up! Tasteful Textures Bundle card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

How'd She DO That?

  • Stamp "medallion" from Tasteful Textures stamp set randomly all over the folded card front
  • From Soft Sea Foam scrap, die cut largest Stitched square.  Then die cut "window" shape from Tasteful Background Dies on same piece.  Adhere to card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Stamp greeting.  Fold 7" of ribbon in half and adhere greeting piece to it.  Then adhere to card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I think this card would work with a lot of color combos:

  • Pretty Peacock & Seaside Spray
  • Highland Heather & Gorgeous Grape
  • Purple Posy & Blackberry Bliss
  • What color combo would you try?

If you'd like to get class project packets in the mail with cards like today's, you'll want to check out my TO GO option...CLICK HERE.

With it's variety of images, sentiments and cool die "windows"...you'll be reaching for the Tasteful Textures Bundle a lot!  You'll definitely want to add it to your shopping bag today!  

Enjoy~Dawn O

Accented Blooms Watercolor Wash Technique

Today I'm sharing a technique card that uses one of my favorite stamp sets that was introduced last year...Accented Blooms.  

Accented Blooms Watercolor Wash card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

The technique is called Watercolor Wash and is surprisingly easy to do.   It was a huge hit with my Stampin' Club Members.  See below for more details.

DOstamping Accented Blooms card:

  • Stamps: Accented Blooms
  • Paper:
    • Blackberry Bliss (8-1/2" x 4-1/4" card base) 
    • Shimmery White (3-7/8" square) 
    • Whisper White (3-7/8" square for inside, scrap for punch)
  • Ink: Versamark, Blackberry Bliss, Flirty Flamingo
  • Heat Emboss: Stamp image with Versamark ink on Shimmery White paper.  Cover with Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder.  Remove excess and melt with Heat Tool.
  • Other:  Tailored Tag Punch, Nature's Twine, AquaPainter, SNAIL, Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals

Accented Blooms Watercolor Wash card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

How'd She DO That? Accented Blooms Watercolor Wash Tips:

  1. Heat emboss image as described above.
  2. Use Aqua Painter to lightly cover the areas to be colored with water. 
  3. Squeeze ink pad together and open.  Pick up some of the ink pooled in the inside cover and "wash" color over the floral images (Blackberry  Bliss and Flirty Flamingo).  NOTE: You may want to pull a little ink off the brush before coloring - as you can always add more color.  Let completely dry.  Then adhere to 4-1/4" x 8-1/2" folded Blackberry Bliss card base.
  4. Stamp sentiment on scrap of white and cut with Tailored Tag Punch.  Adhere with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  5. Loop a piece of Nature's Twine and adhere behind tag with Glue Dots.

What do you think?  Cool, huh?

If you haven't added the Accented Blooms stamp set to your collection yet, be sure to add it to your shopping bag today!  Oh, and don't forget to get the Tailored Tag Punch too.  

Enjoy~Dawn O

Pop of Petals Wreath Panel Card

Often I get asked where I get my inspiration from.  There are several answers to that question.  However for today's Pop of Petals Wreath Panel card, the inspiration came directly from Stampin' Up!. 

Four times a year, Stampin' Up! demonstrators receive a Stampin' Success magazine filled with creative and business inspiration.  I fold over the corners of the pages that inspire me and CASE those projects for my classes and clubs.  Why not, right?   I appreciate that Stampin' Up! provides samples for us to copy.  Just a little something to make my "job" easier.

Stampin' Up!  Pop of Petals panel card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #popofpetals #birthdaycards

Today's card is an example of a Stampin' Success project, that I used for my Stamping Club Class last month.  I left most everything the same with the exception of the greeting.  Other changes I made,  the white piece opens (like a "mini card"),  with a 1/4 sheet card base panel.   (Yes - I like panel cards!)

How'd She DO That? tips for Pop of Petals Wreath Panel card:

  • Stamps:  Pop of Petals, Itty Bitty Birthdays
  • Paper:
    • Soft Sea Foam (4-1/4 x 5-1/2" card base and 5/8" x 4" sentiment)
    • Whisper White (3-1/2" x 5-1/2" score at 4-1/4", and 4-1/2" x 1-1/2" for border punch)
    • Petal Pink (scraps for flowers)
  • Ink:  Soft Sea Foam, Mossy Meadow, Petal Pink
  • Other:  4-Petal Flower Punch, 2-1/4" Circle Punch (for wreath template),  Gold Faceted Gems, Linen Thread, Glue Dots, & Stampin' Dimensionals

Tips for creating a wreath using Pop of Petals stamp set from Stampin' up! - by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #popofpetals

DOstamping Tips:

  1. On 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece of Soft Sea Foam - stamp "flower group" with same ink in upper left and lower right corners
  2. Fold 3-1/2" x 8-1/2" Whisper White cardstock in half (to create a mini card)
  3. Creating the stamped wreath:
    • Cut a circle template with 2-1/4" Circle Punch. 
    • Place on front of folded "mini card" and use a pencil to draw around the circle.  
    • Stamp leaf image around circle with Mossy Meadow ink (the line will be the center of the leaf).  Stamp one leaf, then before reinking, stamp again (moving around the circle). 
    • Repeat until the wreath is complete.
  4. Cut 1-1/2" x 4-1/2" strip of Whisper White with Decorative Ribbon Border Punch and adhere to back of folded white piece.  Then adhere stamped mini card to stamped Soft Sea Foam panel.
  5. Stamp greeting on 4" x 5-/8" strip (towards right edge), and adhere over wreath.
  6. Stamp (3) flowers on Petal Pink scrap with Petal Pink ink.  Cut out with Four-Petal Flower Punch.  Adhere to card with Glue Dots.  Attach Gold Faceted Gems to flower centers.
  7. Tie (2) 10" lengths of twine in a bow, adhere with a Glue Dot 

Stampin' Up!  Pop of Petals panel card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #popofpetals #birthdaycards

I'm lovin' that the Pop of Petals stamp set is for more than just flowers.  Anything that can make a wreath, I'm all for!!

When you purchase this stamp set, be sure to add the matching punch to your shopping bag too!

Enjoy~Dawn O

Stamping with the STARS #309: Texture Folder Stamping Inspiration

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts309...Texture Folder Stamping Inspiration!

309

Here's my interpretation using the Tin Tile Dynamic Texture Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF)...

Sale-a-bration Home to Roost card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting 

How'd She DO That? tips for Texture Folder Stamping:

  • Select a Texture Impressions Emboss Folding 
  • Open the folder and on inside, front (the side with Sizzix & Stampin' Up!)...add ink to the folder.  You can use direct to folder with an inkpad, or sponge daubers to add different colors.  I used both.  I swiped the Mango Melody ink pad across the folder.  Then used a Sponge Dauber to add Poppy Parade ink in selected areas.
  • Use a Stampin' Spritzer to spray with water. 
  • Then press the cardstock onto the folder.  For a more of a watercolor look, "dance" your fingers across the paper.  For a more even look press down on the entire paper.
  • Optionally - skip the water - for more of a printed look.
  • When using water, use watercolor paper, Whisper White Thick or (what I prefer is) Shimmery White Paper.

When using the instructions above - using the inside/front of the folder.  This is what kind of impression you'll get.  However, for me...it was a little to busy for what I was looking for (will use it another time).  

Instead, I tried it on the opposite of the folder and I got a different pattern, more of what I was looking for.  So experience with both sides of Texture Impressions Embossing Folders.  You'll never know what you'll get.

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #305: Snow is Glistening - Sponge Dauber Trick

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

  DSC#305-Update

For todays, my eye focused in on the cute embellishment in the lower left corner, so that's what I'm casing!

Stampin' Up! Snow is Glistening Sponge Dauber Trick card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC305 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #snowisglistening #snowflakeshowcase

Talk about a card that is simple, but wow...this one fits the bill.  With it's easy Sponge Dauber Trick (see below tips) - you'll get stunning results in no time at all

My Stamping Club Members couldn't get enough of it.  I heard surprised oohs, aahs and wows throughout the night.  Made me smile.  It's always fun to learn a new stamping technique.  But even more fun when it's so easy that you can go home and do it yourself!

How'd She DO That? Sponge Dauber Tree card:

  • Stamps: Snow is Glistening (avail until 11/30)
  • Paper:
    • Real Red (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base, scrap for 1-3/8" scallop circle punch) 
    • Whisper White (4" x 5-1/4", scrap for 1-1/4" circle punch)
  • Ink: Real Red, Tuxedo Black Memento
  • Other:  1-1/4" Circle Punch, 1-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch, Real Red 3/8" Mixed Satin ribbon, Snowflake Trinkets (avail until 11/30), Sponge Dauber, Mini Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Tip:  see below

Stampin' Up! Snow is Glistening Sponge Dauber Trick card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC305 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #snowisglistening #snowflakeshowcase

Tips for creating multi-colored tree with a Sponge Dauber:

  1. Ink of tree image with Real Red ink
  2. Before stamping, add black ink with Sponge Dauber to the larger snowflakes
  3. Breath on stamp to remoisten
  4. Stamp on 4" x 5-1/4" Whisper White Panel
  5. Then - ooh and aah!

Happiness Surrounds: Snowflake Showcase Ends 11/30

It's hard to believe that there is only 2 days left of November.  What happened to 2018?  It seems to have flown by so fast this year.

Today's card using the Happiness Surrounds stamp set from the Snowflake Showcase special that ends Friday.  This stamp set is named correctly, as every card I make with it, makes me happy!

Stampin' Up! Happiness Surrounds card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #happinesssurrounds #snowflakeshowcase

This card was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest made by fellow Demonstrator, Leonie Schroder.  Her card used different colors, but I've been in a purple mood lately, thus - purples!  We made this card at my Stampin' Club Class night and it was a BIG hit!

How'd She DO That? tips for Happiness Surrounds card:

  1. Stamps:  Happiness Surrounds
  2. Paper:
    • Whisper White Thick (4-1/4"  x 8-1/2" card base)
    • Highland Heather (4" x 4")
    • Whisper White (3/4" x 3-1/2", and scraps for flower dies)
    • Lemon Lime Twist (scraps for leaves dies)
  3. Ink: Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape
  4. Other:  Big Shot, Snowfall Thinlits Dies (11/30 - last chance), Lovely Floral Texture Impressions Embossing Folder, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals
