As many of you know - I mail out a free 12 Week's of Christmas Newsletter this time of year.  And this year is no exception.  These 12 projects are created and shared by a cooperative group of demonstrators that I'm a member of.   Below you'll find my contribution to the newsletter!

For week #2, I shared a couple of Holiday Character Curvy Keepsake Boxes.  Specifically the Santa and the Snowman boxes.  After I created the project sheet, I later created the Rudolph box (but it was after the publication deadline).  So I thought I'd share all three with you today.

Speaking of that...I've been receiving a few questions on one of 12 Weeks of Christmas newsletter projects. - the Joyful Christmas Poinsettia card.  So I thought I'd share it here today, along with some tips.

Joyful-Christmas2

Poinsettia

Dawn's Blender Pen Technique Tip:

  • This technique is great for a subtle watercolor look without as much work as traditional watercoloring
  • Stamp and color in "stages"
    • Stamp poinsettia image with Cherry Cobbler ink
    • Immediately use Blender Pen to "blend and move" the ink color around
      • Do not pick up ink color from the inkpad
      • Just "pull" color directly from stamped image using a circular motion with the blender pen
      • Be quick and don't over blend, as the paper will "pill" if overworked
      • Not every area needs to be completely colored in
  • Repeat for the leaves, stamping with Always Artichoke

Below you'll find the Joyful Christmas Poinsetta project PDF sample with a complete supply list, measurements and step by step instructions:

Sign up for #DOstamping 12 Weeks of Christmas Newsletter, holiday projects featuring Stampin' Up! products

Here's what people are saying: 

  • Love your Week #1 - Magical Christmas ~ Jo C
  • Can't wait to see more! ~ Beth A
  • WONDERFUL!!!  Thank you Dawn ~ Terry I

My 12 Weeks of Christmas Newsletter is the results of the collective efforts of several demonstrators, each taking turns designing a holiday project (cards, gifts, packaging, etc.) - just for you! 

Week#1 was my project, that was a card using Stampin' Up!'s Santa's List stamp set.  I shared a couple of options for a Quick & Cute (QC) layout.  Today here is another option using the same QC layout.  But with a twist...Santa's belt!    

Stampin Up, Santa's List and Magical Season stamps, Dawn Olchefske, #DOstamping, Christmas Cards

I'm lovin' the addition of the belt and think it's my favorite!  Whether you need a few or a lot...this card could easily be mass-produced for your holiday cards in no time at all!

NOTE:  You might be wondering what catalog you'll find the greeting stamp in.  It's not in any catalog, it's a Holiday Single Stamp - Magical Season.  I thought it was a perfect match for Santa!  check out all the...

Video: Easy Sale-a-Bration Petite Treat Box

If you're on my newsletter list (which is different from my blog email subscription list), then you just received my Week#5 of my DOstamping 6-Weeks of Sale-a-Bration Inspiration Newsletter.  It included a written tutorial for an adorable Petite Treat Box, created by my friend, Tammy Fite.  

I was so taken with these cute little boxes that I put together my own version of the Petite Treat Box, along with a short video tutorial.

How cute are these?  Super cute!!  They hold a fun-size Twix candy bar...my favorite!  You only need a 4-3/4" x 4-1/4" sheet of card to make this sweet Petite Treat Box (say that 3 times fast)!

Get out your Simply Scored Tool and follow along with my How'd She DO That? video below.
