DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #289: Broadway Bound

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

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #289 - Sketch Pad  #dostamping

As it's Day #4 of my Broadway Bound Suite Week - I reached for the adorable little shapes included with the Broadway Lights Framelits Dies. Specifically, the ice cream cone, diamond shapes and party hat. 

Stampin' Up! Broadway Bound Suite Week Day 3 from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #packaging #stamping #papercrafting #birthdaycards #broadwaybound   For DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC289

I took my cue from today's sketch, but was also inspired by the cute sample in the 2018-19 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog (pg 68 - pink tag on the package in the lower right corner).

How'd She DO That? tips for Birthday Medallion card:

  1. Stamps: Broadway Birthday (bundle with Broadway Lights Framelits to save 10%)
  2. Paper:
    • Whisper White Thick (11" x 4-1/4" card base, 1/4" x 2-1/2" greeting strip, scrap for ice cream) 
    • Lovely Lipstick (scrap for 2-5/8" Stitched Shape Framelits square)
    • Basic Black (scrap for Starburst Punch)
    • Broadway Bound Designer Series Paper (5" x 1-1/2" - red, scrap of party hat)
    • Gold Foil (scrap for cone & diamonds)
  3. Ink: Jet Black Stazon - cone, Lovely Lipstick - ice cream (stamp off) & greeting)
  4. Other:  Big Shot, Broadway Lights Framelits Dies, Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies, Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush, Basic Black 1/2" Satin, Ribbon, Candle Embellishments, Fine Tip Glue, Mini Stampin' Dimensionals

Stampin' Up! Broadway Bound Suite Week Day 3 from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #packaging #stamping #papercrafting #birthdaycards #broadwaybound   For DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC289

I recommend stamping and die cutting all of the little pieces first.  That is actually when I discovered the party hat die matches the party hats on one of the sheets of the Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series Paper - wahoo! 

Stampin' Up! Broadway Bound Suite Week Day 3 from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #packaging #stamping #papercrafting #birthdaycards #broadwaybound   For DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC289

Then one final touch that is hard to see in the photo...I added a little bit of shimmer to the ice cream with the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter brush.  It looks yummy in real life!   Ooh - you could slip in a gift card to their favorite ice cream shop...yum!

We're coming near the end for Broadway Bound Suite inspiration - Friday will be the last day.   Get ready to make your own Broadway Bound creations by add it to your shopping bag today!

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #282: We Must Celebrate

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

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #282 - Home Sweet Home #dostamping #stampinup

For this week's inspiration photo challenge, I chose to focus on the colors, as I don't have much in the way of "beachy" themed stamp sets.  I pulled out the soon-to-be-retired We Must Celebrate stamp set (from the 2018 Occasions Catalog) and had a little fun with those cute critters.   When you do the stamping, these cute critters do the celebrating

Stampin' Up! retiring We Must Celebrate card shared by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC282 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #rubberstamping #papercrafting #kidscards #masculinecards #wemustcelebrate #birthdaycards

The Tree Rings background stamp is great for pairing with nature sets, but also a good choice to compliment these woodsy critters as well!

How'd She DO That? tips for We Must Celebrate card:

  1. Stamps: We Must Celebrate (retiring), Tree Rings
  2. Paper:
    • Thick Whisper (11" x 4-1/4" card base, 2" x 4-1/4")
    • Crumb Cake (4" x 5-1/4")
    • Black (two scraps of at least 4-1/4" long strips for Decorative Ribbon Border Punch)
    • Pool Party (1/2" x 3/4" for small banner)
  3. Ink: Tuxedo Black Memento, Crumb Cake
  4. Stampin Blends:
    • Squirrel = Ivory & Bronze
    • Raccoon and Rabbit = Light and Dark Smoky Slate
    • Rabbit nose = Light Pink Pirouette (retiring)
    • Bear = Light and Dark Crumb Cake
    • Shadow = Light Pool Party
  5. Watercolor Pencils: Snail = Pumpkin Pie & Early Espresso
  6. Other: Linen Thread, Decorative Ribbon Border, Blender Pen, SNAIL, Glue Dots
  7. Tips: Watercolor Pencils were used to color the "snail" so the color wouldn't bleed through to the back of the card.
  8. Shopping Links:  See below for a full supply list with links to shop online

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

Welcome to day #4 of Myths & Magic!  

Myths & Magic Specialty Designer Series Paper

Today let's talk Myths & Magic Designer Series Paper:

  • Enter the wonderful world of make-believe, where unicorns prance, mermaids sing, dragons breathe fire, and wizards enchant. Iridescent glittered designs on one side, colorful all-occasions imagery on the other.
  • Coordinating colors: Basic Gray, Bermuda Bay, Berry Burst, Dapper Denim, Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist, Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Pool Party, Powder Pink, Tangerine Tango, Tranquil Tide, Whisper White

Today's cards focus on only one of the double-sided sheets - the playful glittery mermaids on one side and Old Olive "scales" on the other side to create two completely different, but fun cards.

Welcome to day #3 of Myths & Magic!  

If you're anything like me, you are always on the lookout for cute items that match Stampin' Up! product. While shopping Target's Dollar Spot earlier this year, I came across a mini coloring book with a unicorn on the cover and knew I had to have it!  In addition - a friend of mine and team member, Judy sent me a package of "unicorn gum" with a note that she thought I could come up with something fun to make with it (also from Target).  

I created cute unicorn packaging for both...check them out!

This fun unicorn mini coloring book from Target's Dollar Spot is about "half-size", only 5-3/8" x 4" x 1/2".  If you are unable to find any, a small notebook would work too.  Just change the size of the "belly band" to fit.

  2. Paper:
    • Whisper White (3-1/2" x 3")

    • Myths & Magic Specialty Designer Series Paper-retiring (11" x 1" for belly band)
  3. Ink: Tuxedo Memento Black
  4. Stampin' Blends: Dark Pink Pirouette (ear), Dark Pool Party (mane), Light Rich Razzleberry (mane, hooves)
  5. Other: Big Shot, Magical Mates-retiring, Tutti-Frutti Adhesive-Backed Sequins-retiring, Lemon Lime Twist 3/8" Mini Striped Ribbon-retiring, Basic Rhinestone Jewels, Clear Wink of Stella, Stampin' Dimensionals
