Stamping with the STARS #330: From My Heart Foil Tin

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts330. Today we're showcasing a fun Valentine Treat Inspiration!

#DOswts330 Valentine Treat Packaing Inspiration Hop #stampinup #handmade  #valentinesday #DOswts330 #treatpackacking #dostamperSTARS

For today's Valentine Treat Packaging project, I knew exactly what I'd be creating with...the new Heart Foil Tins

Stinkin' cute Heart Foil Tin make by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade  #valentinesday #DOswts330 #treatpackacking #dostamperSTARS

So I pulled out some products from the From My Heart Product Suite and started playing around.  It didn't take long for this super cute Heart Foil Tin to come together.  Here's what you need...

How'd She DO That? Heart Foil Tin:

  • Stamps:  Heartfelt Bundle (with Heart Punch Pack - not just 1 punch, but TWO punches!)
  • Paper:
    • Whisper White Thick (scraps for Scallop Heart Punch, and Classic Label Punch) 
    • From My Heart Designer Series Paper (for Heart Punch, (6) 1" x 3" pieces for candy wraps)
    • Heart Doilies
  • Ink: Real Red
  • Other:  Heart Foil Tins, Real Red 3/8" Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon, Whisper White Baker's Twine,  Classic Label Punch, Mini Glue Dots, Stampin' Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive

DOstamping Tips:

  • For the Heart Foil Tin: 
    • Adhere white scallop heart to Heart Doily.  Then add a couple strips of Snail Adhesive to adhere folded ribbon to.
    • Stamp sentiment on scrap and cut out with Classic Label punch (positioning sentiment on the left).  Adhere under DSP heart punch out (several patterns of hearts to choose from that will match the punch!).
    • Adhere DSP heart/sentiment with Stampin' Dimensionals.
    • Tie a bow in twine and adhere with a Mini Glue Dot.
  • For Candy Wrap:  wrap 1" x 3" piece of DSP around Hershey Nuggets and secure with Mini Glue Dots (6 fit nicely in the tin)

I was giddy when I stood back and gave a look at the completed Heart Foil Tin, for two reasons:

  1. It turned out so stinkin' cute!
  2. It came together very quickly!
  3. Also - when I showed it to my husband, he asked where I got that from.  I said, "I made it".  I was horrified that he thought I bought it!  But also flattered that he thought it looked that good!

If you're looking for something quick & cute to impress your co-workers, crafty friends and more...I highly recommend Stampin' Up!'s new Heart Foil Tins and the From My Heart Product Suite!

Thank you for shopping with me!

Enjoy~Dawn O

Stamping with the STARS #328: Money Gift Card Holder

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts328.  This week we're showcasing Money/Gift Card Holders!

Stampin' Up! product name card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC328 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting

Today's Gift Card Holder Inspiration came at just the right time, as I was in need of one for a friend. 

Jan-Jun 2020 NEW product, So Sentimental Bundle gift card holder created by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #DOswts328 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #giftcardholder #papercrafting #dostamperstars

At the Stampin' Up! Atlanta OnStage event last month, I had a bit of a travel mishap.  My friend, Brian King saved me at the emergency room, as well as throughout the  entire weekend.  I'm not sure what I would have done without him (and several of his team members who pitched in too).  Even though I was traveling alone, you are never alone when you're at a Stampin' Up! event!

How'd She DO That? Gift Card Holder:

  • Holder:  Cut 10" x 3-1/4" Night of Navy cardstock.  Score at 4" and 8".  To the smallest section, add Tear & Tape to both side edges, fold up and secure
  • Sleeve:  Cut 7-1/2" x 3-1/2" Smokey Slate cardstock.  Score at 1/2" and 4".  Add Tear & Tape to 1/2" section and fold/secure together)
  • NEW Country Club Designer Series Paper ( 3-1/4" x 3-1/4")
  • Whisper White (3" x 3-3/4" for inside panel and scrap for sentiment die cut)

Jan-Jun 2020 NEW product, So Sentimental Bundle gift card holder created by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #DOswts328 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #giftcardholder #papercrafting #dostamperstars

For the greeting - I used a NEW Jan-Jun 2020 Mini Catalog product, So Sentimental Bundle.   The Designer Series Paper is Country Club and that too is coming 1/3/2020Jan-Jun 2020 NEW product, So Sentimental Bundle #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking

I was immediately drawn to this bundle because of the sentiments and the size of them.  I think I'll be reaching for this set a lot.  And the coordinating dies...come with both scallop rectangles and fancy shape dies.  Lovin' it!

The Jan-Jun 2020 Mini Catalogs and 2020 Sale-a-Bration Catalogs are starting to arrive in mailboxes already - yay!.  You'll not only love the new product, but there is a new layout and organization to the mini catalog that you'll enjoy too.

Enjoy~Dawn O

Last of my Bone Appetit Paper Pumpkin kit alternative samples!

Here's the last of my Bone Appetit Paper Pumpkin alternative samples.  Plus a couple more from my fabulous DOstamperSTARS team.

4 Bone Appetit Paper Pumpkin kit alternative ideas shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #papercrafting  #craftkitsinthemail

This Bone Appetit eye-catching Trick or Treat/skull border was not only fun to stamp, but it was really easy to create. 

Just stamp the bottom row of sentiments first with Pumpkin Pie ink, filling in with the skulls with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then repeat on top.

4 Bone Appetit Paper Pumpkin kit alternative ideas shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #papercrafting  #craftkitsinthemail

The Bone Appetit Pencil Holder also came together quickly and is a great way to use the Bone Appetit kit for non-candy treats! 

  • Trim off the top/bottom of one of the treat boxes. 
  • Cut the 4 "middle" panels into two panels each (you'll get two holders from one box). 
  • Fold in half around pencils and staple shut.  Decorate as desired.

Here's two more ideas from the STARS:

I thought it was clever the way Bernadette used the negative area from the label dies and backed it with black cardstock.

The die cut skeleton, spider webs and foil labels from the Bone Appetit kit are a great way to decorate the new Coffin Boxes!

A Paper Pumpkin Thing August Blog Hop: Gift of Fall

Paper Pumpkin Thing Monthly Blog Hop Dawn Olchefske #paperpumpkin #dostamping
Welcome to A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop! 

I'm excited to join in with this talented group of stampers to share alternate ideas for Paper Pumpkin Kits.  Today we're sharing the August 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Gift of Fall.

Now onto my Paper Pumpkin Gift of Fall alternative projects...

Grateful Family QC Card

Paper Pumpkin August Gift of Fall Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

If you like quick & cute cards AND prefer full-sized cards, this one is for you!

DOstamping Tips for Grateful Family QC card:

  • Trim the front panel from the Gift of Fall Add-On ombre card to 2-1/4" x 4".  Adhere to 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" folded Thick Whisper White card base. 
  • SAVE your "negative" die sheets (don't throw them away).  Use the Sprig & Leaf Punches to cut a variety of shapes and colors.
  • Adhere die cuts and punched shapes to behind stamped sentiment label, and adhere to card with dimensionals.

 

Thanksgiving Treat Envelope

Paper Pumpkin August Gift of Fall Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #treatholder

Since I used one of the Gift of Fall Add-on Note Cards, I had a leftover envelope.  With such a pretty envelope, I knew I had to make something sweet! 

How'd She DO That? Treat Envelope 

  • For Treat Tag: 
    • Cut 2" x 3-1/2" piece of Crushed Curry with Scallop Tag Topper Punch. 
    • Thread twine through hole.  Adhere candy with glue dots.  
  • For Treat Envelope: 
    • With envelope closed (but not sealed), from the back side fold the sides over and into the center (like a gate-fold).  Reopen envelope and trim away the top corners of the flap.  See photo below. 
    • Stamp sentiment in the center panel.  Slide treat tag into center section of treat holder
    • Fold sides back into the center and flap down.  Wrap seam binding ribbon around flap and tie in a bow. 
    • Stamp "enjoy" on white side of narrow label.  Fold over at about 1-1/2" and adhere with a glue dot.  Create small hole with Take Your Pick Tool and Stampin' Pierce Mat.  Attach tag to ribbon with thread and tie in a bow.

Thanksgiving Wreath Tag

Paper Pumpkin August Gift of Fall Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin

Here's probably my favorite Gift of Fall project...a handmade wreath.  ALL of the items used to create this project are from the kit.  No extra supplies needed!

How'd She DO That? Thanksgiving Wreath Tag

  • Gently remove the handles from a bag.  (You only need one per wreath)
  • Soften up the handle with your hands so it is more pliable.  
  • Shape into a circle approximately 1-1/2" to 1-3/4" wide.  Then use the long end to "weave" it in and around until it meets back where you started.  Use glue dots to "seal" the ends together (reshape as necessary).
  • Use glue dots to adhere leaves (I placed them where the ends met). 
  • Then use 3-pieces of twine, wrap around wreath over leaves and tie in a bow.  Finish off with a sequin
  • Place several glue dots on back of wreath to adhere to stamped tag.

Paper Pumpkin August Gift of Fall Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin

I had SO much fun creating with the Gift of Fall Paper Pumpkin kit.  I still haven't yet put the kit away.  But I think my favorite part about this month's kit is the Gift of Fall Add-On Note Cards & Envelopes.  With SO many leftovers from the kit, there was plenty to play with to create fabulous cards.

Paper Pumpkin Gift of Fall: I've Got Alternatives For YOU!

Today I have a few alternate ideas for you to create with the  August 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Gift of Fall.

Paper Pumpkin Gift of Fall Add-On Bundle| Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

152885 Gift of Fall Add-On Bundle* - includes:

  • 24 card bases of 2 different designs with coordinating envelopes (note card size)

  • Not included with an August Paper Pumpkin subscription

When I first saw this kit, I felt it was too busy with too much color (for me).  Having said that, I had SO much fun creating with this kit.  You'll see a few creations below where I used a few of the kit's elements, yet toned them down which is more pleasing for my eye.

 


First up are two Note Cards made from one of the large printed tags (love it when I can get two cards from one element)!

Happy Thanksgiving Note Cards

Aug 2019 Gift of Fall Paper Pumpkin Kit Alternative ideas from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #paperpumpkin #stamping #cardmaking #papercrafting

How'd She DO That? Happy Thanksgiving Note Cards

  • Die cut 2-5/8" Stitched Shape Square (Merry Merlot and Pretty Peacock)
  • Using the 2" Circle Punch, carefully cut two circles from the printed leaves tag.  Adhere one to each square.  Then adhere squares to folded Whisper White Note Cards (and Envelops)
  • Decorate corner of square/circle with leaves dies - using glue dots
  • Stamp sentiments on narrow labels from kit, with coordinating colors (Merry Merlot and Pretty Peacock).  Adhere with dimensionals.
  • Finish off with a linen thread bow and sequin.

Aug 2019 Gift of Fall Paper Pumpkin Kit Alternative ideas from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #paperpumpkin #stamping #cardmaking #papercrafting

I'm super happy with the results of these cards.  I will definitely be making more of them!

Grateful Card & Treat Wrap

Aug 2019 Gift of Fall Paper Pumpkin Kit Alternative ideas from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #paperpumpkin #stamping #cardmaking #papercrafting

Here's another set of projects that I had fun creating.  Both are quick & cute projects, that I know you'll enjoy creating yourself!

How'd She DO That? Grateful Stencil Card

  • Use one of the leaves negative pieces from the kit as a "stencil"  (once you've removed all of the leaves). 
    • Place stencil over 2-3/4" x 4-1/2" piece of Pretty Peacock 
    • Use a Sponge Dauber and Versamark Ink Pad to dab ink over open spaces in the stencil, then remove.
  • Adhere to 3" x 4-1/4" piece of Crumb Cake.  Then adhere to 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" folded Old Olive card base.
  • Stamp sentiment with Pretty Peacock ink on the white back side of a Merry Merlot circle die cut from kit.  Add dimensionals to the back.
  • Arrange leaves with glue dots onto card, then attach sentiment.  Finish off with a sequin.

Aug 2019 Gift of Fall Paper Pumpkin Kit Alternative ideas from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #paperpumpkin #stamping #cardmaking #papercrafting

Enjoy Treat Wrap

Aug 2019 Gift of Fall Paper Pumpkin Kit Alternative ideas from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #paperpumpkin #stamping #cardmaking #papercrafting

How'd She DO That? Enjoy Treat Wrap

  • Stamp "enjoy" with Pretty Peacock ink on narrow label.  Trim down to 1-1/2".  Use Take Your Pick Tool and Stampin' Pierce Mat to create a hole in the label.  Also create a hole at the opposite end of the printed leaves tag.
  • Wrap Tag around treat (Hostess Mini Fruit Pie).
  • Thread twine through both tag holes and the label, tie off in a both.  
  • Decorate with leaves dies and sequin.

Again - I can see myself making more of both the card and the treat wrap - YUM!

Birthday Monday: Gummy Bear Sweet Treats

It's Monday again...yay!  Time again for Birthday ideas!

Ever since I laid my eyes on the How Sweet It Is Suite of products, I knew I had to do something with Gummy Bears candy.   

I bought a bag of Haribo Gold-Bears and it's been sitting on my desk for about a month.   Before I eat the last of them (orange is my favorite flavor), I thought I better make a treat package.

TreatBag-PH

This adorable treat bag comes together in no time at all, especially when you're using our 3" x 6" Cellophane Bags.

How'd She DO That? Treats for You bag:

  1. Stamps: Sweetest Thing
  2. Paper:
    • Daffodil Delight (3-1/2" square scored at 1-3/4" and fold over bag, and scrap for jar die) 
    • Whisper White (scraps for labels - die & punch)
    • How Sweet it is Designer Series Paper (3-1/4" x 1-1/2")
  3. Ink: Melon Mambo, Tuxedo Black Memento
  4. Other:  Big Shot, Jar of Sweets Framelits Dies, 3" x 6" Gusseted Cellophane Bags, Sweet Pins & Tags, Classic Label Punch, 1/8" Handheld Circle Punch, Whisper White Bakers Twine, Stampin' Dimensionals (and stapler to secure "fold over" piece to bag).

TreatBag-CU

The How Sweet It Is Suite is not just for yummy treat packaging, but for sending your favorite people sweet messages too.   Who wouldn't want a treat bag filled with goodies!?

Whether for parties or just thinking of you...the How Sweet It Is Suite is a treat that you can use all year-long!  Add it to your shopping bag today!  

Enjoy~Dawn O

Meant to Be Sweet Cups

Oh my gosh - I'm so excited to share a fun Sweet Cup with you today!

I was shopping at Target and came across heart shaped Mini Mousse Cakes (Archer Farms) and they spoke to me! 

I haven't event eaten one yet.  It was my swap for my STARS team get-together potluck and shoebox swap that we had on Sunday.

Stampin' Up! Valentine Sweet Cups by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #stamping #diy #papercrafting #valentinetreats

It was so easy to put together and fun too!  I reached for the obvious, the All my Love Suite products.  When looking at this suite, don't forget to check out page 6 too, for the Meant To Be stamp set/bundle.

How'd She DO That? All My Love Sweet Cup:

  • Meant To Be stamp set
  • Sweet Cup
  • All My Love Designer Series Paper (for 2-7/8" Stitched Shape circle die)
  • Whisper White (scrap for Pretty Label Punch
  • Tuxedo Black Memento Ink
  • All of my Love Ribbon Combo Pack

Stampin' Up! Valentine Sweet Cups by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #stamping #diy #papercrafting #valentinetreats

DOstamping Tips:

  1. Use the 1/8" Circle Handheld Punch to cut two holes in the Sweet Cup (near each other) for the ribbon to thread through (so the ribbon stays in place)
    • NOTE:  Stampin' Up! just announced the 1/8" Circle Handheld Punch will be retiring and is currently only available while supplies last (due to the manufacturer discontinuing the product.)
  2. Thread ribbon through both holes, wrap around Sweet Cup and tie in a bow.  Slide bow all the way over to the holes (to cover them).
  3. Cut 3 pieces of tissue paper into 4" x 4" squares and place into Sweet Cup.  (I found the "valentine" colored tissue paper at Target)
  4. Place "Mini Mousse Cake" into Sweet Cup (mini cakes also found at Target)

Stampin' Up! Valentine Sweet Cups by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #stamping #diy #papercrafting #valentinetreats

I'm pretty sure any of your Valentine sweethearts will love receiving a cake filled Sweet Cup (or filled with any treat).  Add them to your shopping bag today, so they'll arrive in time for the special day!  

Enjoy~Dawn O
