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

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

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #292: Tropical Chic

Stampin' Up! Tropical Chic card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC292 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping  #papercrafting #tropicalchic

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

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #292 - Home Sweet Home #dostamping

For this week's challenge, I knew immediately what Stampin' Up! products I would use, the Tropical Escape Suite

Stampin' Up! Tropical Chic card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC292 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping  #papercrafting #tropicalchic

From the first time I looked at the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog - I completely fell in love with this suite.  Two reasons, 1) I adore the color combination used in the Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper and 2) The window leaf shape from the Tropical Thinlits Dies is to die for!  And I got to incorporate them both today!

How'd She DO That tips for Tropical Chic card:

  1. Stamps: Tropical Chic
  2. Paper:
    • Basic Black (11" x 4-1/4" card base)  
    • Blushing Bride(4" x 5-1/4")
    • Granny Apple Green (scrap for leaves die cut)
    • Whisper White (3-3/4" x 3-3/4" behind window, 2-3/4" x 1" greeting, scrap for flower & leaf.
    • Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper (4" x 1")
  3. Ink:  Blushing Bride, Granny Apple Green, Tuxedo Black Memento
  4. Other:  Big Shot, Tropical Thinlits, Granny Apple Green Ribbon, Basic Black Baker's Twine, Mini Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals
  5. Tip: 
    • After die cutting window shape in Blushing Bride panel, adhere 3-3/4" white square to back side, keeping the adhesive to the edges of the square.
    • Die cut Granny Apple Green "nested" leaves together at the same time.  Adhere with glue dots.
    • Fold 3-1/2" of ribbon in half, wrap black twine around it and finish in a bow.  Adhere with a glue dot.

Trim Your Stockings With This Darling Stocking Pillow Box

 If you haven't tried the Trim Your Stockings Thinlit Dies yet, you're missing out!  This absolutely darling die set is a must-have.  It's filled with lots of holiday images and is designed to create two styles of pillow boxes too.  One is a traditional pillow box and the other is a Stocking Pillow Box.   

Stampin' Up! Trim Your Stocking by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #stamping #diy #rubberstamping #gift #packaging #trimyourstocking, #christmas

Last night was my local stamping club and the club members couldn't stop stop talking about it.  It's easier to assemble then you might think.  And once you have the completed Stocking Pillow Box in your hands - you'll be in love too!


Stampin' Up! Trim Your Stocking by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #stamping #diy #rubberstamping #gift #packaging #trimyourstocking, #christmas

Trim Your Stocking Thinlits Tips from Dawn:

  • Decorate the stocking shape before assembling. 
  • Use lots of adhesive, as the final shape will pillow out and you don't want your cute decorations to fall off.
  • Tear & Tape is a must (as shown in the video).  Then burnish edges with a Bone Folder

Below you'll find a video by Stampin' Up! sharing tips and tricks for putting the pillow box together.  Note:  They do recommend the precision plate.  However, I found, for my Big Shot, it wasn't necessary.  I suggest playing around with scrap paper first to determine what your Big Shot will require. 

 WATCH VIDEO:  Trim Your Stockings Dies in action

If you're looking for fun ways to package small gift items this year (candy, gift cards, jewelry, etc), then the Trim Your Stockings Thinlits Dies are the answer for you!  You're recipients will ooh & aah over it, just like my club members did.

For my one of Stamping Club Classes we did an oldie but goodie technique, Polished Stone...but with a twist, using the Clear Wink of Stella Brush.  I also shared it at the Creative Connections event in September and a few people have asked about a How'd She DO That? video.  So that's what I have for you today!

Polished Stone with a Wink Technique

The Polished Stone Technique has been around for a long time.  With the return of Glossy White Cardstock , it was a perfect time to play with it again.  It uses ink refills, rubbing alcohol, cotton balls and often times it has a "metallic" ink as well.  That's where the Clear Wink of Stella Brush comes in.

Add rubbing alcohol to a cotton ball along with drops of ink refill (Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder) and drops of Clear Wink of Stella Brush (squeeze hard).  Pounce repeatedly all over Glossy White Cardstock.  Let dry.  To see it in action, watch the How'd She DO That? video below.

It's hard to capture the glimmer that the Wink of Stella Clear Brush adds to the Polished Stone with a Wink Technique.  But in real life - it's gorgeous and your recipient will love it!  Give it a try! 

If you're looking for a special Christmas card this year, you can't go wrong with the Night of Bethlehem Bundle (save 10% with the Bethlehem Edgelits Dies). Add it to your shopping bag today!
