Pining For Plaid Alternate Card Ideas

If you've already started to play with your kit, you've probably found that you'll have lots of white circles leftover (from the shaker windows).  I knew I had to put them to use and here's what I came up with using the smaller of the two circles...

Stampin' Up! Pining for Plaid October 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit ideas by Dawn Olchefske #stampinup #paperpumpkin #cardmaking #cardkit #rubberstamping #diy #piningforplaid #quiltcard #christmas

As you probably know by now, this 9-square quilt is one of my go-to layouts with pattern paper.  I never tire of this look. And with a little stamping, I created a little custom pattern paper of my own!

Seasons Greetings Quilt Card

  1. Cut five 1" squares of the paper paper (from an envelope). Stamp snowflakes with black ink on 1" strip (and at least 4" long) of Old Olive cardstock, then cut into four 1" squares .
  2. Adhere all nine squares to 3-1/4" square of Whisper White, then to 3-1/2" square of Old Olive  The adhere to folded 11" x 4-1/4" Basic Black card base.
  3. Ink up only the word "greetings" with black ink and stamp on scrap of Whisper White.  Clean stamp and ink up only "season's" and stamp above previous image.  Cut with 1-3/8" Circle Punch.  Adhere to 1-1/2" Basic Black Circle.  
  4. Use Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler scraps and Holly Berry Builder Punch.  Adhere holly/berries with glue dots.  Then adhere completed greeting circle to card with Stampin' Dimensionals
  5. Tie Basic Black Baker's Twine in a bow and adhere with glue dot

Retiring: Stampin' Up! Designer Tin of Cards with Dawn Olchefske, #dostamping

After we were done making the kit cards, he wanted to make a card of his own design.  I don't generally bring too many supplies with me, so he had me hopping a little bit to find just the right things for his cards.  Though, he mostly used the leftover supplies from the kit.  Take a look...

Max's creations with #dostamping

He used the Designer Tin of Cards (coordinating stamp set for the kit above - now sold out).

Max's creations with #dostamping

Max turned 10 a few months ago (and his brother Sam is 8).  He recently got glasses and looks so grown up.  He was really excited to stamp with me.  Each time we thought his cards were done, he thought of something else he wanted to add.  The final addition was the small balloons on the inside of the card.  He wanted to make sure that I told you, "he purposely left some space on the left side for you to add your own message".  Didn't he do a great job?  He'd love it if you left a comment for him.

We had so much fun stamping together...nothing is better!

It's the final hours of the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog!  Get your favorites tonight before they are gone for good - ends at 11:50pm (MT) tonight, 5/31!

For shopping from the new catalog tomorrow, the online store will be unavailable starting at midnight and should be back up & ready to shop from starting at noon, June 1st.  My blog will be updated with the new catalog information, wish lists and more, so be sure to check back tomorrow!

Birthday Bright Project Kit Alternative Card Idea

Today I'm sharing...Birthday Bright Project Kit alternative card idea.  You'll find this kit in the 2017 Occasions Catalog (pg 13) or here.

Stampin' Up! Birthday Bright Project Kit Alternative idea shared by Dawn Olchefske 

Using all the pieces from the Birthday Bright Project Kit and suggested ink colors & coordinating Birthday Bright stamp set...this alternate card idea comes together quick and CUTE!  It especially shows off the fun embossed card base.  Here's how... 

Birthday Bright Alternative Card

  1. Stamp on white tag from Birthday Bright Project Kit as follows using the Birthday Bright stamp set:
    1. "big" = Archival Basic Black
    2. "wish" & balloon = Watermelon Wonder
    3. candles = So Saffron
  2. Adhere stamped tag to black striped tag 
  3. Thread twine through holes and tie in a bow.
  4. Adhere tag to folded black base with the clear embossed dots.
  5. Adhere honeycomb circle over balloon shape.
  6. Place 3 yellow enamel stars on card .

Stampin' Up! Birthday Bright Project Kit Alternative idea shared by Dawn Olchefske

Tip: when mailing this card...only adhere one side of the honeycomb circle done.  Slip in a note for the receiving to tear off the adhesive backing and stick the other side down.  Then it won't get squished in the mail.

Remember, when you shop during the Sale-a-Bration promotion and your order totals $50 (before shipping/tax), you can choose a FREE a Sale-a-Bration product!  Shop Here

Put your Oh What Fun Tags to use!

Do you remember the Oh What Fun Tags Project Kit I shared a several weeks ago?  This kit makes 30 tags and I'm starting to use them up for my holiday packaging.  Here's a few ideas I've used them with...

Oh What Fun Tags project kit ideas share by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup

Here's one added to a gift bag for my postal carrier.  Each year my husband makes a fabulous quick bread called Wine Bread, which we gift to our family, friends and neighbors.  Our mail person gets one too.  She's a fabulous mail person who always thanks me for using USPS for my deliveries - even when she has to back up her truck into my driveway to haul six big bins to her truck...always with a smile.  I so appreciate her, as she makes my life easier!

Oh What Fun Tags project kit ideas share by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup

These were a treat for my husband's co-workers.  I just whipped up a few Mini Treat Bags using the Real Red Envelope Paper (love this paper...it would be great for birthday treats too!  It's on sale right now, perfect excuse to stock up!).  In goes the treat and just attach the tags with Clothespins

Twix bars

The actual treat was a gift from one my STARS, Judy Strickling.  She knows I have a sweet tooth for Twix Bars.  With 18 in a pack, I knew I would be sharing them.  My grandkids have been eyeing them to, so I'm sure they will find one in their stockings (among other fun things).  Thanks Judy!

Oh What Fun Tags project kit ideas share by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup

In addition, I've already started add them to my holiday packages.  I think I may go through all 30 tags after all.  I'm so happy with this kit.  It was fun to make and I'm thankful I have them all done and ready to go!  You can still get this Oh What Fun Tags Project Kit.  It's actually one of the retiring items on sale - now for only $14.70.  Stock up now for next year! 

What kind of treats do you give co-workers and service providers?

Enjoy~Dawn O

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #128: Feel Goods with Reverse Mask Stamping

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

DSC#128

When I saw this week's Thursday Challenge I was kind of stumped.  My first thought was of the "sunshine" greeting from the Feel Goods stamp set.  Then next...how to create the sunshine.  And it hit me...there's a "sunshine" stencil (mask) in the Hooray It's Your Day Card Kit.  So that's where I started.

Reverse Mask Stamping technique card created by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Challenge Thursday DSC#128 #dostamping #stampinup 

When I started playing around with the mask, I found I wasn't really getting the look I was going for...the rays AND a sun. Then it hit me...use the mask like a stamp, which is where the "reverse mask stamping" comes in to play. Here's what I did...

Reverse Mask Stamping

  • Ink up the mask itself using ink refills (Daffodil Delight & Rose Red) and Stampin' Sponges. Randomly dab on the color.
  • Liberally spritz the inked up mask with water (spritzer came with the kit - woohoo!)
  • Place a piece of Watercolor Paper onto mask, press and hold to make sure the paper absorbs the ink and water.
  • Remove paper from the mask and delight in your awesomeness!
  • (Hmm...I'm feeling a How'd She DO That? video coming in the future.  What do you think?)

Reverse Mask Stamping technique card created by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Challenge Thursday DSC#128 #dostamping #stampinup

NOTE: Let dry before stamping the greeting.  Also...I recommend stamping the greeting with Stazon Jet Black Ink.  I tried the Memento ink and the results were disappointing; not nice and crisp like the Stazon.

Now that I've cracked open the Hooray It's Your Day Project Kit, I may have to play with it some more!

Enjoy~Dawn O
