Dawn's Simple Stamping Tips:

  • When creating your own stamped background, start with the largest image working down to the smallest image.
    • tool box = Real Red
    • gas can = Crushed Curry
    • bolts = Basic Gray
  • I like to turn my cardstock as I'm stamping so the images are all in different directions.

The Classic Garage Suite of products are perfect for ALL of the men in your life. With it's classic car styling and variety of sentiments, it's a must-have for any card maker.  Add it to your shopping bag today and earned Salebration FREE product (see below)!

Rooted in Nature: Stunning Embossed Resist Leaves! (& last day of FLASH1018 sale)

You're in for a treat today.  I have a stunning Rooted in Nature Embossed Resist technique card for you today.  If you need a special card for a special friend,  this is the card to make.  See below for detailed instructions.

Stampin' Up! Rooted in Nature emboss resist card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #rubberstamping #papercrafting #thankyoucard #rootedinnature 

Emboss Resist Technique is an oldie but goodie stamping technique. Here's how...

  1. Wipe Embossing Buddy all over a panel of Whisper White cardstock.
  2. Stamp images onto cardstock with Versamark ink.
  3. Cover with your choice of Stampin' Emboss Powder, remove excess powder.
  4. Use Heat Tool to melt powder, let cool.
  5. Sponge ink over the entire panel.  (either Stampin' Sponge or Sponge Dauber will work)
  6. Use a paper towel to remove any ink from the embossed images.
  7. The areas where there is embossing - it will resist the ink and the images will "pop"!

The "skeleton leaves" from the Rooted in Nature stamp set are a perfect choice for the Emboss Resist Technique.  

How'd She DO That? tips for Embossed Resist Rooted In Nature card:

  • Stamps: Rooted in Nature
  • Paper:
    • Blackberry Bliss (4-1/4" x 11" card base, & scrap for oval)
    • Copper Foil Sheets (4" x 5-1/4" & scrap for oval)
    • Whisper White (3-3/4" x 5")
  • Ink: Versamark, Blackberry Bliss
  • Other: Big Shot, Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies (smallest oval), Layering Ovals Framelits Dies (smallest scallop) , Heat Tool, Embossing Buddy, Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder, 1/4" Copper Trim, Sponge Dauber, Mini Stampin' Dimensionals

Stampin' Up! Rooted in Nature emboss resist card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #rubberstamping #papercrafting #thankyoucard #rootedinnature

My camera had a hard time capturing the complete beauty of this card - due to the shine of the Copper Embossing and Foil sheets.  Trust me - in real life, this card will make your recipient gasp as they take it out of the envelope!  What a way to say "Thank You".

If you haven't purchased the Rooted in Nature stamp set (or bundle with framelits dies - saves 10%)...what are you waiting for?   At the very least, you'll want to add it to your wish list, and maybe someone can get it for you for your birthday or upcoming holidays.

If you're ready to get it now...add it to your shopping bag today!  (see shopping links below) 

Enjoy~Dawn O

Myths & Magic Suite Showcase Day #5: Draw Bridge Fun Fold Card

DOstamping sharing 5 days of Stampin' Up! Myths & Magic Suite ideas by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #rubberstamping #papercrafting #magicaldaystampset #myths&magic #birthdaycards #packagingideas

Welcome to day #5 of Myths & Magic!  

I think I saved the best for last.  A couple weeks ago I went on a crafting retreat and one of the projects everyone was making was a Bridge Fun Fold card.  I had to get in on the fun and make one of my own and this is what I came up with.

Stampin' Up! Magical Day Bridge Fold Card & video by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #rubberstamping #papercrafting #magicaldaystampset #myths&magic  #birthdaycards #howdshedothat #bridgefoldcard

I'm calling it a "Draw" Bridge as it goes with the Myths & Magic theme - don't you think?  ALSO - it's surprisingly easy to make despite how it might look.  

How'd She DO That? Magical Day "Draw" Bridge Fun Fold Card - measurements

  • Whisper White Thick (8" x 4-1/4" card base, score at 1-1/4" & 2-1/2" from both ends)
  • Lemon Lime Twist (four 1-1/8" x 4-1/4" strips, 5-1/2" x 1-1/4", 2-7/8" x 4-1/4")
  • Myths & Magic Specialty Designer Series Paper-retiring 
    • tree pattern (four 1" x 4-1/4" strips)
    • demin pattern (5-1/2" x 1-1/8")
    • fussy cut dragon & knight, use 1-3/4" Circle Punch to cut out castle

Festive Phrases: Starting the Year with a couple of Valentine's Day projects

With only a day left for the Festive Phrases stamp set, I thought I better share this beautiful card and fun Mini Pizza Box before the stamp set retires on January 2nd (along with most of the products from the 2017 Holiday Catalog).  The card features a colorful "alcohol" inking technique with a twist!   

Stampin' Up! Festive Phrases stamp set for Valentine's Day by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #love #valentine #valentinesday #festivephrases #bigshot #minipizzabox #treats

The twist is the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush and you're gonna love it!.  Not sure what it's called, but I'll be referring to it as Ink Blending with a Twist.  Here's how...

Instructions for Ink Blending With a Twist Technique:

  1. On a Silicone Craft Sheet, squeeze "dots" of ink refill around the mat.  Use various sizes of dots.  Start with your "primary" color - here it's Melon Mambo. 
  2. Then add a few dots of a secondary color - again various sizes.  Here it's Crushed Curry.
  3. Now for the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.  You'll need to "over-squeeze" the brush to get "drips" of the glitter mixture to come out to add to craft sheet.
  4. Next, fill a Stampin' Spritzer with rubbing alcohol.  Spritz the rubbing alcohol onto the ink so they start to blend together a little bit.
  5. Now you're ready to add it to Glossy Cardstock.  Place the cardstock glossy side down onto the craft sheet and "push" it into the color.  Lift up and see where else the color needs to go and continue moving and pressing until the cardstock is fully covered. Let dry
  6. NOTE:  the color will move around a little bit and continue to blend as it dries.  Each time you do it, it will look different.  Have fun experimenting!

How'd She DO That? Video: Night in Bethlehem & Polished Stone with a Wink!

I'm so excited to share this project & video with you today.  If you're looking to make a few extra special cards for the Holidays, for those extra special people in your life...this Night in Bethlehem Bundle card is the one!

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.

4" x 5-1/4" Elegant Eggplant cardstock

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!
