Stamping with the STARS #357: Color Blocking Inspiration

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Stamping with the STARS Inspiration Hop #DOswts357.  This week we're sharing a Color Blocking Inspiration.

Stamping with the Stars #DOswts357 Color Blocking Inspiration #dostamperSTARS #dostampinup #stampinup

During our Monthly STARS Zoom Meeting last month, my team member and friend, Jan Carlson shared a Color Blocking Technique with everyone.  It looks really fun, so we decided to make it our theme inspiration for this month.

Stampin' Up! Hooray To You Color Blocking card by Dawn Olchefske for #DOstamperSTARS #DO357 #DOstamping #HowdSheDOthat-P

I'm lovin' the bright colors I chose to go with this fun birthday stamp set, Hooray To You.  I just pops off the card with a black card base.

How'd She DO That? Hooray To You card

  • Stamps: Hooray To You
  • Paper:
    • Basic Black (4-1/4" x 11" card base)
    • Whisper White (3-5/8" x 4-7/8") 
    • Highland Heather, Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight & Magenta Madness (3-1/2" x 4-3/4")
    • Basic White (scrap for punch)
  • Ink:  Tuxedo Black Memento
  • Other:  Stamparatus, Paper Trimmer, Classic Label Punch, Snail Mail Twine Combo, Black Matte Dots, Stampin' Seal, Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals

Stampin' Up! Hooray To You Color Blocking card by Dawn Olchefske for #DOstamperSTARS #DO357 #DOstamping #HowdSheDOthat-CU

DOstamping Tips:

  • Using the Stamparatus, stamp images on all 4 panels of colored cardstock with black ink.  (I did need to stamp each one 2 times to get a nice clean stamped image)
  • Use the Paper Trimmer to cut each panel as follows:
    • 1-1/4" off the top,
    • turn and cut off right edge at 1-1/2" ,
    • then turn and cut off 1" of the "birthday". 
    • NOTE:  I cut two panels at a time.  If you can - cutting all 4 panels at a time is optimal.
  • Sort pieces into 4 piles of 1 color/shape per pile.  You'll get 4 cards - yay!
  • Assemble on white panel, like a puzzle.

Sale-a-Bration Approaching Perfection FREE stamp set card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup #cardmaking #howdSheDOthat-B

DOstamping Tips:

  • I didn't want to stamp each sentiment individually.  So I mounted several stamps into a grouping on a clear block.   
  • I'm always looking for ways to be more efficient, and this fit the bill.
  • Experiment with different "layouts".
  • Then stamp in a variety of directions to create your own customer background!

If you're looking for some fun birthday sentiments, then Approaching Perfection stamp set is for you!  Add product totaling $50 or more to your shopping cart and it's yours for FREE. 

Remember - Sale-a-Bration ends February 28th.  Just days away.

Thank you for shopping with me!

With one quick pass through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine, you're halfway there to a cute little treat box.  Just fold on the score lines and assemble - no adhesive required! 

With a box like this, it would be perfect for party favors - wedding, birthday, showers and more!

Stampin' Up! Little Treat Box by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #DOswts350 #DOstamperSTARS

DOstamping Tips:

  • For sentiment - use Early Espresso Stampin' Write Marker to ink up a portion of the stamp, then stamp on Very Vanilla strip.  Use Paper Snips to cut a banners shape in one end.  Make hole with Take Your Pick Tool.
  • Loop 6” of the Basket Weave ribbon through both slots of the treat box.
  • Thread two 8” pieces of thread through sentiment tag, Crumb Cake leaf (also put a hole into the end) and the acorn trinket. Then wrap tightly around the Basket Weave Ribbon (at the top of the box) and tie in a bow.
  • For the Belly Band - change the color of the pattern paper by sponging Mint Macaron ink directly to the paper.

Curvy Christmas card by Dawn Olchefske (coming Nov 3) #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

DOstamping Tips:

  • For stamping pine boughs, stamp several times along the curve.  Don't try to connect, instead stamp halfway over the previous images and continue along the curve. About halfway through the curve, turn the stamp around to finish stamping along the rest of the curve.
  • For double ribbon, fold ribbon into thirds, then use thread to tie off in the center (tight).  Thread on Jingle Bell and tie into a bow. Adhere with Glue Dots.

Your Creative Connection #YCC117: Poinsettia Dies

Welcome to another Your Creative Connection tour, #YCC117.  Our theme today is: Dies to Die For

Your Creative Connection - a bi-monthly tour showcasing Stampin' Up! product

As I've been playing with the Poinsettia Place Suite lately, it was a natural choice to select the Poinsettia Dies for my project today.

It's hard to see in the photo, but the petals have embossed lines on them.  

At first glance at the dies, I was concerned about the process for cutting and embossing.  Do I have to cut first, then emboss afterwards?  The answer is no!  They cut and emboss at the same time.   See tips below.

DOstamping Tips for Poinsetta Dies:

  1. Place all 7 dies on a 5-1/2" square of cardstock.  Nest the matching "emboss" dies inside the large shape dies. 
  2. I was excited to cut/embossed all four petal sizes at the same time.  Phfew - what a time saver!
  3. Adhere flowers together with Stampin' Seal &/or Mini Glue Dots.
  4. Adhere Beaded Pearls to the center with Mini Glue Dots.

The Poinsettia Place Suite was an instant favorite for me!  If you like poinsettias like I do, then you'll be thrilled with the suite too.

DOstamping Tips:

  • If you take a closer look at the sentiment tag - you'll see I used two colors.  Cool, huh?
  • Ink the stamp up with Highland Heather ink.  The use a Sponge Dauber to add Pacific Point ink on the words.  Some ink will overlap onto the other areas, but that gives it a fun look.
  • Breathe on your stamp to remoisten, then stamp on scrap of Whisper White and die cut.

Be sure to check out all of the Designer Series Papers on Sale for 15% off this month.  Add your favorites to your shopping cart and SAVE today!

Thank you for shopping with me!
