Million Sales Achiever Stamp Set: Music from the Heart

I'm beyond excited that I can finally share my Million Sales Achiever stamp set with you!  It's called "Music from the Heart".  Which is perfect, as every time I look at, it makes my heart sing!

"Music from the Heart" samples by Dawn Olchefske, Stampin' Up! Million Sales Achiever  - coming Jan 3, 2020 #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #OnStage2019 #millionsalesachiever 

You might be wondering, "why music"?  That's a good question.

Growing up, music was a huge part of my life.  I played several instruments: oboe, guitar, saxophone, but particularly piano (classically trained).  I was in any band I could be in...concert band, jazz band, orchestra, musical theater practice piano and of course...marching band.  Officially - I'm a band geek!  I'm sure I have some fellow band geeks out there, right?  In addition, I sang in choirs and co-directed our church's children's choir for a couple of years.  

My girls were also in band and choir growing up (of course).  My daughter Becky is now a musician, singer/songwriter.   And now a 3rd generation is developing a love of music...my grandsons.  Max plays piano and percussion.  Sam plays saxophone.

So...music was a natural choice for me!

I was thrilled to be able to share my stamp set and samples at the Stampin' Up! Atlanta OnStage this month.  See below for my creations (note: I will be creating a couple of videos on how to use the stamp set, as well as some of the specific projects):

  • Songbirds can be stamped on music staff

I didn't get to play a grand piano very often - only at recitals.  But when I did, it made me feel like a real musician!  

  • I've heard from so many of you that are just like me, who love music! 
  • Your response has truly touched my heart - Thank you
  • I'd love to hear  your music stories...please share in a comment.

Come January 3, 2020, you can add "Music from the Heart" (151674) to your shopping card (part of the  upcoming Jan-June 2020 Mini Catalog).  Band Geeks unite!!

Accented Blooms Note Card & Envelope

Lately I've been receiving several inquiries about the cards I made during my $1 Million Milestone trip to the Stampin' Up! home office.  It was originally posted here.  So I thought I'd answer them today.

Stampin' Up! Accented Blooms Note Card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #rubberstamping #papercrafting #accentedblooms #stamparatus

I was so excited to play with with the Accented Blooms stamp set, as it's one of favorites from the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog. Plus to stamp with Shelli and Sara, that made it even more fun!

One of the questions I've been getting about the card is...did we color the larger flowers white?  That answer is no - it seems to be an optical illusion.  Though - I'm not sure why.  But it's a happy accident (gotta love that!)

How'd She DO That tips for Accented Blooms Note Card:

  1. Stamps: Accented Bloms
  2. Paper:
    • Color (11" x 4-1/4" card base)  or (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base) 
    • Very Vanilla (scap for punching)
  3. Ink: Gray Granite (for stamping large floral image), Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie
  4. Other: Tailored Tag Punch, Aqua Painter & Stampin' Dimensionals
  5. Tips: 
    1. We used the Stamparatus for stamping the large flower image.  (When I say "we", I mean my hubby.)  For best results...create a template area to line up the note card away from the hinge edge.
    2. For the Aqua Painter - use a drier brush and a light touch for coloring.
  6. Shopping Links:  See below for a full supply list with links to shop online

The Accented Blooms stamp set is a must-have for any card maker.  Whether you want to say "hello" or "thank you", you'll be reaching for it all year-long! Add it to your shopping bag today!  

Enjoy~Dawn O

Million Dollar Sales Milestone Celebration Trip Day 2

Continuing from yesterday...

When we arrived in Salt Lake City, we were greeting by a very friendly driver, Terri and driven to the Grand American Hotel.  The hotel lived up to it's name...it's very GRAND!

As we were delivered to our room, we found it to be top-notch.

In addition, we found a treat box filled to the brim with all sorts of treats and snacks!

On the second day, we had planned to do a hot air balloon ride, but the weather didn't cooperate.  So we took a tour of Salt Lake City, which included a stop at the Mormon Tabernacle for the daily organist recital, which was amazing.  

Then I travel back to the home office to join in a brainstorming session and Gene went to the Aquarium (the perfect place for him to spend a couple of hours).

Treats galore throughout the entire trip!

 

Dawn Olchefske $1 Million Sales Milestone Trip to Stampin' Up! home office #stampinup #dostamping
Our trip ended with an unexpected snowy drive up to Snowbird Mountain for dinner at the Steak Pitt with Sara, Sean, Shelli and Sterling.  Not only was the meal delicious, but the company and conversation was fun and relaxing.  I enjoyed getting to know Sara and Shelli a even more and found we have a lot of things in common!   In fact, I think the best thing about the trip was spending time, stamping and dinner, with Sara and Shelli.  They are both a delight!

I'm grateful that Stampin' Up! recognizes their demonstrators in so many different ways.  This trip wouldn't have to be something they do for us, but I'm glad they do...Thank you!

And lastly - thank you to my fabulously loyal customers who have supported me over the years and helped me earn such a fabulous trip.  Without YOU...this wouldn't have been possible.

Enjoy~Dawn O

You might be wondering what I'm holding in my hand.  It's a million dollar stamp (both rubber and photopolymer) and a beautifully etched clear block.  What a lovely surprise!

What is this?  Two HUGE baskets of Stampin' Up! product.  Rett explained that this was their donation area and they had one ready to go out along with a letter.  He had me read the letter out loud.  It turned out to be a donation to a Girl Scout Council in Minnesota!  I was deeply touched by their generosity.  Girl Scouts was a very big part of my life growing up, as well as my girls as they grew up.

I had to get a shot of Shelli training Gene on the Stamparatus!  He was a good sport and stamped all 100 note cards and envelopes!


Dawn Olchefske $1 Million Sales Milestone Trip to Stampin' Up! home office #stampinup #dostamping

While stamping Shelli even thanked me for selecting "stamping with Sara & Shelli" as one of my activities.  Are you kidding...I wouldn't have missed it.  I felt like I was stamping with my BFF's.  It was so much fun and both Sara and Shelli were a delight to spend time with.

Stampin' Up! Accented Blooms Note Card, stamping session with Sara Douglass & Shelli Gardner #stampinup #dostamping #cardmaking
Here's the card we made.  I selected my favorite stamp set from the upcoming 2018-2019 Annual Catalog, Accented Blooms.  Along with my favorite, Note Cards & Envelopes.  As we stamped and colored, the coloring evolved into a simple and clean look, which is more my style.  I love it!  It's going out to my top 100 customers - watch for it soon!

Dawn Olchefske $1 Million Sales Milestone Trip to Stampin' Up! home office #stampinup #dostamping

Here's the stamping crew...thanks for an awesome time!

The day ended with dinner at the Paris Bistro with Corporate Team members, Jill and Paula. 

It was a perfect day from the incredible welcome at the door, the flowers, all the sweet hugs and congratulations we received through out the entire day, the donation baskets, a fun lunch, product sneak peeks, treats everywhere and stamping with my besties!  It couldn't have been better.  We enjoyed every minute - thank you Stampin' Up!

I do have more pictures, which I'll share tomorrow. 

Enjoy~Dawn O

Beautiful Million Dollar Achiever Card & Flowers

Several of you have asked about the card I received from Sara Douglas & Shelli Gardner, (Stampin' Up! CEO & Founder) for my Million Dollar Sales Milestone achievement. 

Stampin' Up! Petal Passion Suite card from Sara Douglass & Shelli Gardener for Million Dollar Sales Milestone achiever Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #rubberstamping #papercrafting #petalpassionsuite #milliondollarachiever

What a fun surprise it was when it arrived!  The flowers are gorgeous and the card is just perfect!  Using Berry Burst & Basic Black, paired with Petal Passion Suite products and the Music Sheet background stamp (music is a big-deal in my family).

I appreciate all of the little details on this lovely card - Thank you Sara & Shelli.

Stampin' Up! Petal Passion Suite card from Sara Douglass & Shelli Gardener for Million Dollar Sales Milestone achiever Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #rubberstamping #papercrafting #petalpassionsuite #milliondollarachiever

When I first started papercrafting, I started with scrapbooking.  After being introduced to cardmaking via my sister who made me go to a Stampin' Up! party, I was hooked!  I joined to save money on my hobby, but soon saw the advantages of sharing my passion.  I guess it pays to stick with your passion. 

Though, a million in sales never crossed my mind when I joined.  I could never see myself selling anything.  I still don’t see myself as "selling", but I do see myself as teaching and sharing my passion.  I’m ever so grateful for my loyal customers, incredible team, and supportive family.  Also, I’m thankful to Shelli who was brave enough to start Stampin’ Up! 30 years ago!

As I have shared with my DOstamperSTARS team before..."We have something very special to offer.  A grasp at happiness, making a difference in ours and others’ lives, to bring a smile to someone’s face.  In the end, it may seem like just a card, but the journey of that card comes from our heart straight to their heart. What a place to touch!”

Thank you~Dawn O
