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

Stampin' Up! Suite and Tie Die-card from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdSheDOthat #papercrafting-PH

One of the ideas I had rolling around in my head was a pocket filled with a pen & pencil.  I thought of Bill Nye the Science Guy when I was making this card.  Which would be something my hubby would like to receive - as he's kinda of a nerd.

How'd She DO That? Well Suited Nerd card

    • Basic White (2-1/2" x 6-1/2" for die cutting)

Your Creative Connection #110: Happiest of Birthdays Easy Fun Fold Card

Welcome to another Your Creative Connection tour, #YCC110.  Our theme today is: Hey Dude

Your Creative Connection - a bi-monthly tour showcasing Stampin' Up! product

I chose to use, what I personally think is one of the new must-have stamp sets, Happiest of Birthdays!  

Stampin' Up! Happiest of Birthdays card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #stamping #papercrafting  #YCC110 #YourCreativeConnection #masculinecards

Stampin' Up! Happiest of Birthdays card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #stamping #papercrafting  #YCC110 #YourCreativeConnection #masculinecards

DOstamping Tips:

  • Color the Playing with Patterns Resin Dots with Stampin' Blends!  I colored one of them with Night of Navy dark for this card.  With our Stampin' Blends these resins dots can go with anything!
  • To assemble this fun fold card:  fold bottom half into a Z fold.  Only adhere the top of the sentiment piece to the card (with Stampin' Dimensionals).  It holds the bottom half in place, until you unfold it to reveal the inside of the card.

I definitely recommend adding the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set to your collection - you'll use it all year long!

Thanks for stopping by.  Be sure to check out more creativity at our next stop on Your Creative Connection tour, Barbara Meyer.

Country Club Suite: Easy Color-Block Card

Today I'm sharing an easy color-block card using products from the Country Club Suite!

Celebrate all things masculine and sporty with the detailed golfing, line-art images in the Clubhouse Stamp Set.  Create a golf-themed greeting card for the men in your life.

Stampin' Up! Country Club Suite Color-Block card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #masculine #clubhouse

One of my favorite things to do with Designer Series Paper is to create blocks of color.  The more "neutral" patterns from the Country Club Designer Series Paper are perfect for Color-Blocking.
