How to

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

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

Vintage Style Daisy Lane Card & 3 Ways to Sponge

Last weekend we spent an extended weekend at our cabin.  It was nice and peaceful, which gave me time to stamp for fun. 

One of the stamp sets I brought with me as the NEW Daisy Lane stamp set.  Also available in a Bundle & Save 10% with the NEW Medium Daisy Punch.  This was one of the projects I came up with...

Vintage style Daisy Lane (from Stampin' Up!) card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #daisylane

For this card, I kinda went "old school" and reached for my Stamping Sponges, which I haven't done in a long time.  It actually brought back memories from when I first began stamping.  Sponging was all the rage!

DOstamping Vintage Daisy Lane card:

  • Stamps/Bundles: Daisy Lane
  • Paper:
    • Sahara Sand (11" x 4-1/4" card base, scrap for "tag") 
    • Whisper White (4" x 5-1/4")
    • Old Olive (scrap for 3-1/8" x 1-13/16" rectangle)
  • Ink: Sahara Sand, Old Olive
  • Other:  Stamping Sponges, Timeless Label Punch, Linen Thread, SNAIL, Glue Dots, & Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Shopping List:  see below

Vintage style Daisy Lane (from Stampin' Up!) card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #daisylane

How'd She DO That? tips:

Create a different kind of background with a "swiped" direct to paper look from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #papercrafting #stampingtechniques

Direct to Paper Technique:

  • On Whisper White panel, swipe Sahara Sand ink using Direct to Paper technique.  Drag ink pad across cardstock.  
  • I did the top half in one direction and the bottom half in the other direction
  • TIP:  depending on how firmly you press on to the cardstock will determine how dark the ink will transfer.  I prefer a light to medium "press" (you can always add more if you want).

Learn 3 types of sponging from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #papercrafting #stampingtechniques

Three Ways to Sponge:

  1. For the "swiped" panel, first stamp multiple leaves with Old Olive ink, stamp a couple times before re-inking again.  Then sponge the edges using a "circular" motion.  Start off the cardstock (on scratch paper), moving onto the edges of the panel.  Repeat on all four sides.  Repeat again for a darker edge (the photo shows a darker edge)
  2. For the Old Olive Rectangle, I used a "flicking motion".  Hold the cardstock in one hand and the sponge in the other.  Press sponge onto ink pad, then "flick" the sponge against the edges of the cardstock.
  3. For the Daisy pieces:
    1. The flowers I pounced ink in the center, carefully moving outwards a little bit.  Then "flick" the tip of the petals.  NOTE:  you'll need to flower punch outs for each flower.
    2. The flower center is stamped stamped tone-on-tone (Sahara Sand) using the large daisy image.  Sponge the center, then fussy cut out (or use 1/2" circle punch.  Then "flicked" the edges.

03

Transform Timeless Label punch out into a tag by trimming off one end.  I see myself using this "trick" a lot in the future!

Vintage style Daisy Lane (from Stampin' Up!) card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #daisylane

I have to admit, this was not the card I started out to create.  But as I only brought limited supplies with me, it forced me to go in a different direction.  In the end, I was more than pleased with the finished card.  What do you think?

So...you may have noticed over the past few weeks, I seem to have a new "favorite" stamp set each week.

This week, my favorite is the Daisy Lane Bundle (151118 - save 10%)

  • It's easy to show your friends & family how much you love and support them with a stunning daisy card, like today's card.
  • And...the Medium Daisy Punch is a fun way to add daisies to your projects (size is approximately 1-5/8")

You'll definitely want to add the Daisy Lane Bundle to your shopping bag today!  And while there, be sure to stop by the Clearance Rack, as it's been refreshed with new deals!

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 #316: Above The Clouds Bridge Fun Fold Card

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts316.  Today we're showcasing Bridge Fun Fold Cards. 

Stamping with the Stars #DOswts316 #dostamperSTARS #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting, #funfold


Bridge Fun Fold card using Stampin' Up! Above the Clouds Bundle.  Card by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the Stars #DOswts316 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting, #funfold

Bridge cards are a fun fold style of card, named for the piece that "bridges the two sides together.  It's surprisingly easy to make and fun to decorate.

How'd She DO That? Above the Clouds Bridge card:

  • Bundle:  Above the Clouds Bundle (save 10% on stamp set and matching Hot Air Balloon Punch),
  • Paper:
    • Whisper White Thick (4-1/4" x 8" card base, score at  1-1/4" & 2-1/2" from each end)
    • Whisper White Thick (scraps for punching)
    • Coastal Cabana (5-1/2" x 1-1/4")
    • Designer Series Paper ( 1-1/8"  x 4-1/4 strips - two of blue and two of "colored stripes", 5-1/2" x 1-1/8")  )
  • Ink: Coastal Cabana, Calypso Coral, Pacific Point, Basic Gray
  • Other:  1-1/2" Circle Punch, SNAIL, Mini Stampin' Dimensionals and Tear & Tape.

Bridge Fun Fold card using Stampin' Up! Above the Clouds Bundle.  Card by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the Stars #DOswts316 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting, #funfold

DOstamping Tips:

  • Start with the card base (largest piece).  Complete the scoring, folding, stamping and decorating.
  • Then create and decorate the "bridge" piece.
  • Note:  For the "balloons solid shape" - stamp off the Coastal Cabana balloon image once.  Stamp-off the Calypso Coral balloon twice.
  • I recommend using Tear & Tape to adhere the "bridge" to the card base  (on the end panels only).
  • To see a video demonstration of  making a Bridge Fun Fold card, be sure to check out my How'd She DO That? video from last year.

Everything is Rosy Day 3: Flip It Cards

Today I have 4 Quick & Cute (QC) "Flip It" cards to share with you.

4 Flip It cards made with the Everything is Rosy Product Medley kit (available May 2019 only) shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #cardmaking #papercrafting #everythingisrosy #flipitcards 

What is a Flip It card?  Good question.  I've probably been doing them for years, but never realized there was a name for it until I saw Karen Titus share a quick demo of it at CentreStage last month.  Oh my gosh, Flip It is the perfect name.

How'd She DO That? Flip It cards:

  1. Cut Designer Series Paper to 4" x 5-1/4"
  2. Cut that piece into two pieces - ie: cut in half or cut one third/two thirds.  (I cut mine at 1-1/2")
  3. Then... here's the "trick"...FLIP one of your pieces over.  Yes, that's it!
  4. Adhere both pieces to the front of your card, add a sentiment and decorate as desired.

These cards came together in no time at all.   

  • The sentiment labels, tag & die cut flowers were included in the kit, 
  • along with both ribbons (which I love!), 
  • 6x6 Designer Series Paper and rose gold foil, 
  • and...I almost forgot,  mirror embellishments used on the last card.

I can't decide which card is my favorite.  But I'm leaning towards the "birthday tag" card (love the bold flowers).  How about you...which one is your favorite?

If you're looking for quick & cute cards, definitely try "Flip It" cards with your Everything is Rosy Product Medley kit.

Remember:  Everything is Rosy is only available during May - only while supplies last.  Get yours today!

Stamping with the STARS #312: Recessed Panel Card Inspiration

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts312.  This week we're having fun with Recessed Panel cards!

Stamping with the STARS Recessed Panel inspiration hop #DOswts312 #dostamperstars #papercrafting #stamping #cardmaking Needlepoint Nook Suite Recessed Panel card created by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #DOswts312

I've seen Recessed Panel cards around for years, but have never made one.  If you search for them, you'll find samples of horizontal, vertical and diagonal versions.  I chose the diagonal version, as I like the visual interest.   I got out the Needlepoint Nook Suite of products and started to play!

DOstamping Needlepoint Recessed card supplies:

  • Whisper White Thick (11" x 4-1/4" card base) 
  • Whisper White (5-1/2" x 4-1/4" and scrap for punch)
  • Old Olive (5-1/2" x 4-1/4")
  • Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper (3" x 6")
  • Rich Razzleberry (scrap for punch)

Needlepoint Nook Suite Recessed Panel card created by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #DOswts312

How'd She DO That? Recessed Panel Instructions:

  • On folded card base, adhere Designer Series Paper at a diagonal.  Align it at the bottom right corner, then align the opposite corner with the left edge of the card - see above.  (You could use a full panel of Designer Series Paper.  However, if you want your DSP to go farther, use a 3" x 6" piece.)
  • Cut both white and olive 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" panels at the same time.
    • Near the top left side, make a mark at 3/4" & 1-1/8".  On the right side, make a mark at 3" down from the top.
    • For top "half" - start at 3/4" mark on the left edge and cut diagonally over to 3" mark on the right edge.  Trim off 1/8" from top edge of white panel.
    • For bottom "half" - start at 1-1/8" mark on the left edge and cut diagonally down to the bottom right corner of the panels.  Trim off 1/8" from bottom edge of white panel.
    • Adhere white and olive panels together
  • Optional:  before adhering cut panels to card, add texture.
  • Adhere panels to card with Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Decorate as desired

Needlepoint Nook Suite Recessed Panel card created by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #DOswts312

Take a Closer Look:

  • Look at all of the fun "stitching" on the lower panel and the greeting label.  I was giddy to discover how fabulous it looks.  Both are from the Needlepoint Elements Framelits Dies.
  • The Pretty Label Punch is perfect to cut the greeting label.
  • The finishing touch is the Needlepoint Nook Mini Buttons and Old Olive Linen Thread.

Not sure why I waited so long to make a Recessed Panel card, it was fun to make.  Whether you make your panel vertical, horizontal or diagonal (like mine), I'm sure you'll have fun too!  Give it a try.

Enjoy~Dawn O

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.

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
