Stampin’ Up! Bloom Where You’re Planted Suite card byDawn Olchefske  #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #DOswts367 #DOstamperSTARS-cu

DOstamping Tips:

  • I chose three different "gray" patterns to resemble a tiled background and I love the look of it!
  • Arrange the nine 1"squares onto the Smoky Slate square.
  • For adhering, I like to start in the lower corner.  Then adhere the opposite corner, then middle.  Continue around the outside edges, then finish with the center piece.

Stamping with the STARS #366: Sketch with Bloom Where You're Planted

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Stamping with the STARS Inspiration Hop #DOswts366.  This week we're sharing a sketch.

Stamping with the Stars #DOswts366 Sketch Inspiration #dostamperSTARS #dostampinup #stampinup
366-Sketch
I created today's sketch.  It's a copy of a layout I used on another card that I haven't shared yet, but will soon.     

Stampin’ Up! Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper sketch card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #DOswts366 #dostamperstars-P

I reached for the Bloom Where You're Planted Suite products.  It's currently my favorite suite that I'm playing with.  Love the colors, images and sentiment/fonts.

How'd She DO That? Bloom Where You're Planted sketch card:

  • Stamps/Bundle: Plentiful Plants
  • Paper:
  • Ink:  Just Jade, Cinnamon Cider 
  • Other:  Just Jade & Gold 3/8" Braided Ribbon, Genial Gems, Stampin' Seal

Stampin’ Up! Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper sketch card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #DOswts366 #dostamperstars-CU

DOstamping Tips:

  • To create a fuller leafy image:  Ink image with Just Jade ink and stamp once.  Then without re-inking, turn image slightly and stamp again.  Stamp a third time without re-inking, turning image in the other direction.
  • How to select just the right color card base?  For this card, I tried three different colors, Just Jade (which seemed too dark), Cinnamon Cider (which I was leaning towards), and then landed on Smoky Slate - which felt just right.  I call that the "Goldilocks" feel.  You know, that feeling when something doesn't feel quite right - you change the color or size and voila - now it works!

The Bloom Where You're Planted is part of the current Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper Promotion.  Add it to your shopping card now at 15% off!

Thank you for shopping with me!

Stamping with the STARS #361: NEW Spiral Dye with Baby Wipe Technique

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Stamping with the STARS Inspiration Hop #DOswts360.  This week we're sharing a super fun technique, the Baby Wipe Stamping Technique.  An oldie, but goodie!

Stamping with the Stars #DOswts361 Baby Wipe Technique Inspiration #dostamperSTARS #dostampinup #stampinup

I'm super excited to share my Baby Wipe Technique card with you today.  Not only does it feature the fun stamping technique, but also a new stamp from the upcoming 2021-2022 Annual Catalog (coming 5/4/21), called Spiral Dye!

NEW Stampin’ Up! NEW Spiral Dye background stamp with baby wipe technique card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #DOswts361 #dostamperstars-P

As soon as I soon the Spiral Dye stamp, it reminded me of my girls tie dyed t-shirts they made in Girl Scouts.  Fun memories.  I also thought my grandson, Max (who turned 14 yesterday), would love a card made with it.   

How'd She DO That? Spiral Dye Tie Dyed card:

  • Stamps/Bundle: Spiral Dye-156927 (coming 5/4), Happiest of Birthdays, Sweet Ice Cream
  • Paper:
    • Pacific Point (4-1/4" x 11" card bases)
    • Basic White (3-7/8" x 5-1/8", scrap for sentiment) 
    • Daffodil Delight (4" x 5-1/4")
  • Ink Refills:  Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point, Real Red
  • Other:  Stamparatus Plates, Stampin' Pierce Mat, Mini Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine, Stitched Rectangle Dies, Stampin' Seal, Stampin' Dimensionals


NEW Stampin’ Up! NEW Spiral Dye background stamp with baby wipe technique card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #DOswts361 #dostamperstars-c

DOstamping Tips:

  • As the Spiral Dye stamp is a large background stamp, I used a Stamparatus Plate to build my "custom baby wipe stamp pad" on.
  • ALSO - I recommend cleaning the stamp prior to use, to remove any manufacturing film.  Either a pencil eraser or very fine sand paper.

Wipe technique card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #DOswts361 #dostamperstars-1

 

  • Layer 3-4 baby wipes onto plate.  Use reinkers to add ink onto wipes.  Can do it randomly and strategically, like I did.
  • I was going for a tie dyed look, so I thought spreading the ink outwards like sunrays would be a good start (see photo above)
  • Then I filled in with more ink in the white spaces, moving it around with the ink bottle nozzle.  The photo below shows it ready for stamping.

Wipe technique card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #DOswts361 #dostamperstars-3

 

  • Press stamp into the inked baby wipes then stamp onto white cardstock.
  • I stamped it 3 times - cleaning stamp between each time.  The photo below shows the first time. 
  • Then for the 2nd & 3rd times, I rotated the stamp about 3/4" each time, to get a more filled in look.

NEW Stampin’ Up! NEW Spiral Dye background stamp with baby wipe technique card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #DOswts361 #dostamperstars-s

  • As I was thinking about what ink color I would use for the sentiments, it occurred to me to use the baby wipe stamp pad for that too (uh, duh).
  • I used it for the inside sentiment too.  It looks so cool, doesn't it? 

NEW Stampin’ Up! NEW Spiral Dye background stamp with baby wipe technique card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #DOswts361 #dostamperstars-i

I totally had fun with the Baby Wipe Technique and making this card for Max.  I think he's gonna love it.  It turned out better than what I envisioned in my head!

Be sure to stock up on Ink Refills, so you can play with the Baby Wipe Technique too.   Then add the Spiral Dye to your wish list, so you can get it first thing on May 4th!

Thank you for shopping with me.

Enjoy~Dawn O

Stamping with the STARS #359: Butterfly Inspiration

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Stamping with the STARS Inspiration Hop #DOswts359.  This week we're sharing Butterfly Inspiration.

Stamping with the Stars #DOswts359 Butterfly Inspiration #dostamperSTARS #dostampinup #stampinup

Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Bundle card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS-#DOswts359 #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #papercrafting-P

Stampin' Up! has several choices of stamp sets with butterflies.  But it's always more fun to play with the newest one, the Butterfly Brilliance bundle.

I discovered a few things while making this "stencil" card.  See DOstamping Tips below.

How'd She DO That? Stenciled Butterfly Wings card

  • Stamps/Bundles: Butterfly Brilliance Bundle (SAVE 10% with Brilliant Wings Dies), Sweet Ice Cream 
  • Paper:
    • Gorgeous Grape (11" x 4-1/4" card base) 
    • Basic White (4" x 5-1/4", 1" x 4-1/4") 
    • Highland Heather (1-1/4" x 4-1/4")
    • White Backer Board (5-1/2" x 6-1/2")
  • Ink:  Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape
  • Stampin' Blends:  
  • Other:  Brilliant Wings Dies, Purple 3/8" Tricolor Ribbon (RETIRING), Basic Rhinestone Jewels, Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine, Blending Brushes, Stampin' Seal, Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals

Stencil with Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Wings Dies shared by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS-#DOswts359 #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #papercrafting

DOstamping Tips:

  • Stamp butterflies on white panel with Gorgeous Grape and let dry
    • note the above photo doesn't show the stamping, as I wanted to let you see what only the stenciling looked like (as you could just do that without stamping.
  • Create & Use Stencil:
    • I recommend using a thicker cardstock or thin cardboard, like the white backer board that comes with our Designer Series Paper Packs.  Especially if you want to save and reuse the stencil.
    • Die cut the "group of butterflies" single die from (5-1/2" x 6-1/2") backer board.
    • On a piece of scratch paper (to protect your surface), place a small amount of Stampin' Seal.  Rub fingers over it to take away some of the stickiness.  Place the stamped white piece over the adhesive (this will keep it in place so it doesn't slide around.  I learned this the hard way - ha!).
    • On the back side of the stencil, add adhesive to a couple corners (rub away some stickiness).  Place stencil over white piece - aligning the butterfly images.
    • Use Blending Brush to add Highland Heather ink through stencil in a circular fashion.  (Start with a little ink and then add more to get your desired shade).
    • Remove stencil and stamped piece from scratch paper.

 

Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Bundle card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS-#DOswts359 #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #papercrafting-C

At first, I wasn't sure I'd like all these butterflies on a single stamp.  But it actually saves time, which is great for anyone who wants to spend just a little of their extra time stamping and card making.  Try to think of it like a background stamp with lots of versatility. 

Add just about any sentiment to the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle and you've got a card for any occasion.  Add it to your shopping cart today!

Thank you for shopping with me!

Enjoy~Dawn O

Well Suited Suite: The Basics

In January, several members of my DOstamperSTARS team hosted a virtual customer event.  We each featured either a suite or bundle during the event.  I chose was the Well Suited Suite.  

Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited Bundle card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #papercrafting #masculine-p

Today's card shows-off the basic use of the Handsomely Suited Bundle.  Specifically the Suite & Tie Dies.  See below for card measurements and tips.

How'd She DO That? Well Suited Sweater card

  • Stamps/Bundles: Handsomely Suited Bundle (156240) – includes the Suit & Tie Dies (SAVE 10%)
  • Paper:
    • Basic Gray (11" x 4-1/4" card base and scrap for buttons die)
    • Smoky Slate (2-1/4” x 3-1/4” for “shirt”, scraps for dies; pocket, collar and long strip)
    • Basic White (4" x 5-1/4" for inside panel)
    • Well Suited Designer Series Paper (4" x 5-1/4" for sweater, scrap for bow tie die  )
  • Ink:  Tuxedo Black Memento
  • Other:  Suit & Tie Dies, Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine, Stampin' Seal, Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals

Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited Bundle card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #papercrafting #masculine-cu

DOstamping Tips:

  • Adhere the following die cut elements (from above) to the Smoky Slate “shirt” piece:
    • collar die cut with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals placed more towards the center area,
    • 2-3/4” of the long strip die cut (trim off excess),
    • bow tie die cut with Stampin’ Dimensional,
    • buttons with Mini Glue Dots.
  • For this card, use the “V” die and cut about 3” into the “sweater” DSP piece. Add adhesive on the backside along the “V” edge and adhere to shirt, under the collar.  Then adhere to folded card base.  Experiment with the V die.  You don't always have to use the entire area of the die. 
  • Stamp sentiment on Smoky Slate pocket die cut and adhere to card with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • And in no time at all, you're done!

I have to admit, I thought this suite might be limited.  But the more I played and created with it, the more I began to really enjoy it and could see all of the possibilities.  Over the next couple of weeks, I'll share the wide variety of projects I made (5-6 of them), both male and female cards!

In the meantime,  you might want to add the Well Suited Suite Collection to your shopping cart so you're ready to play with the Handsomely Suited Bundle.

Thank you for shopping with me!

Enjoy~Dawn O

Stamping with the Stars #DOswts358 Sketch Inspiration #dostamperSTARS #dostampinup #stampinup

I was not going to use the Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper for this sketch, as I thought you might be tired of me sharing Butterfly Brilliance Collection ideas.  However, I just couldn't help myself!

Speaking of not being able to help myself...I made 3 cards using the sketch as I could decide what I liked the best.

DOstamping Tips:

  • Each card uses two 2"x 2" squares of Designer Series Paper.
  • Then cut each square on the diagonal to get 4 triangles.  Adhere in each corner.
  • Stamp & decorate the center area.

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.
