DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #307: Punches are a Stampers Best Friend!

It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge.  This week we're having a "Product Spotlight" challenge.  

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge DSC#307 #dostamperSTARS #thursdaychallenge #punches

That's right, punches ARE a stampers best friend.  Why...because with a quick stamp and punch, you've got an easy-to-make embellishment for your cards.

Stampin' Up! Making Christmas Bright Bundle card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC307 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #howdshedothat #christmascards

Stampin' Up! has a large offering of punches.  I chose the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch, and the coordinating Making Christmas Bright stamp set (bundle % save 10%).  It was an easy choice, as it was another card I offered at my Christmas Stamp-a-Stack class.  The ladies found it a little fussy at first, but when their card all came together, I heard a lot of, "oh, that was worth it"!

How'd She DO That? Christmas Bulb card:

  • Stamps: Making Christmas Bright
  • Paper:
    • Paper Parade (11" x 4-1/4" card base) 
    • Color (2 of 4" x 5-1/4", scraps for punching)
    • Galvanized Metallic Paper (scraps for punching)
  • Ink: Poppy Parade, Lemon Lime Twist, Coral Calypso, Call Me Clover, Granite Gray
  • Other: Stamparatus, Christmas Bulb Builder Punch, All is Bright Paper Clips, Silver Bakers Twine, Clear Wink of Stella, Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Shopping Links:  See below for a full supply list with links to shop online

Dawn's Tips:

  • For the best stamping impression...be sure to clean the "bulb" stamps before stamping.  This will remove any manufacturing film.
  • Use the Stamparatus to stamp the greeting and string of lights - makes for quick and perfect stamping alignment!
  • Though you can't see it in the photo, Wink of Stella was added to the word "shine".

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #254: Smitten Mitten Penguin Family!

It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge.  This week we're having a "Product Spotlight" challenge.  

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC254 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy

Today's challenge is any Stampin' Up! Holiday Product and I selected the Smitten Mitten Bundle.  Specifically, the Many Mittens Framelits Dies

Last month at the Creative Connections Event, we were fortunate to have Carrie Cudney from the Stampin' Up! home office shared a fun presentation using the Smitten Mitten Bundle.  One of the most adorable projects she featured was a fun mini penguins punch art tag.  I knew I wanted to give it a try.  I put the small ones together and I guess I didn't realize how small they really were.  I had something bigger in mind.  So I started playing with the large mitten framelits and this is what I came up with...

Stampin' Up! Smitten Mitten Bundle Penguin Family card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC254 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #smittenmitten #manymittens #christmas #punchart #penguin

Oh my gosh...isn't this SO cute?  I was giddy with the results...it makes me smile!  Let me take you through the steps.

Smitten Mitten Penguin Family Card - How To:

Stampin' Up! Smitten Mitten Bundle Penguin Family card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC254 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #smittenmitten #manymittens #christmas #punchart #penguin

The above photo shows you what you'll need to assemble both a large and small penguin.

  • TIP:  Adhere mittens together with "thumbs" facing out.  Don't overlap completely - give a little extra space on the sides, so the white center doesn't cover all the black up (hope that makes sense?)
  • Colors = Basic Black, Whisper White, Pool Party, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red 
  • Framelit/Punches = Many Mittens Framelits Dies, Cookie Cutter Builder Punch, Fox Builder Punch 
  • Adhesives = Glue Dots, Snail, Liquid Multipurpose Glue
  • Additional Tips: 
    • Large Nose = cut from "bow tie"
    • Large Feet = cut from "star" framelit shape

Tips for hats:

  • Small hats = trim off piece from small mitten (Pool Party, Real Red).  Trim with Mini Tinsel Trim Combo Pack
  • Top hat = Basic Black 1-1/2" x 1" and cut out from Classic Label Punch
  • Large hat = trim off piece from large mitten (Pool Party).  Trim with 1-5/8" x 1/4" - add texture used "embossing" die from Many Mittens Framelit set.

Outside of card:

  • Card base = 11" x 4-1/4 Soft Sky
  • Snowflakes = Smitten Mittens stamp set, stamp with Pool Party
  • Snow = 2-1/4" x 4-1/4" Whisper White (I did tear it, but after assembling the card - I see the "tearing" doesn't really show)
  • Greeting = Hearts Come Home stamp set, stamp with black ink

Inside of card:

  • 1/2" x 4-1/4" strip of Basic Black
  • Stamp greeting (from Smitten Mitten) on scrap of white and cut with Everyday Label punch
  • Real Red heart is from Cookie Cutter Punch

So...what do you think of this Many Mittens Penguin Family card?  I'm thinking these penguins would even be cute for Valentine's Day.  I know I'm smitten!

If you like punch art, mittens &/or penguins, then the Smitten Mitten Bundle is for you (bundles save you 10% too).  Be sure to add it to your shopping bag today!

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...

    • Eyes = use Cookie Cutter Punch (Basic Black) - adhere with glue dots
    • Nose = Pumpkin Pie scraps (hand cut)

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

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #233: Summer Cool Treats Punch Art!

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

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC233 #dostamping
Summer is not quite here, but today's photo inspiration reminds me of hot summer days!  Another thing that reminds me of hot summer days is, the 4th of July.  You'll be surprised to see how the popsicles were created.  Check it out...

Use Stampin' Up! Pretty Label Punch to create popsicle fun!  Shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping

Summer Cool Treats card

  1. Tear a 3-5/8" wide piece of Whisper White cardstock to approximately 3" tall.
  2. Create Tempting Turquoise & Real Red "popsicles" with the new Pretty Label Punch.  Trim off the top and bottom edges to create the icicle, then cut off the bottom of the icicle to whatever length you want. Use the Classic Label Punch to create Crumb Cake "sticks".  Round off one of the edges.  Adhere to underside of icicles.  
  3. Lay the popsicles on the torn white piece for placement of the words.  Stamp "You're" (Cool Treat stamp set) with Night of Navy ink.  Using the Labeler Alphabet stamp set, stamp "the" with Night of Navy ink, "bomb" with Real Red ink, and stars with Tempting Turquoise ink.  
  4. Adhere to 3-5/8" x 4-7/8" piece of Night of Navy, then to 3-7/8" x 5" piece of Silver Foil, then to folded 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base.
  5. Adhere popsicles to card - for the top one use Stampin' Dimensionals.

March Paper Pumpkin non-Easter ideas, Free Gift with April

Like I mentioned on Monday, I have a couple more Bunny Buddies Paper Pumpkin ideas for you.  I think you're gonna enjoy them!  These two cards feature the non-Easter greetings from the kit, giving it more versatility. Check out the adorable Dog Panel Card.  

Alternate ideas for Bunny Buddies March 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit created by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  

Why do I call it a panel card?  Because the mini card is attached to just a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" panel.  The mini card opens, but not the panel.  Hence, Panel Card!  Now that we're all on the same page, on to the card itself...

Dog Panel Card

  1. Create "mini card" with 6-1/2" x 2-3/4" Basic Gray cardstock, score in half at 3-1/4".
  2. Cut one of the peach note cards in half.  Using the top half of the card, trim the sides down to 2-1/2" wide (final piece will measure 3" x 2-1/2").  Stamp greeting as shown with ink from kit.  Adhere to "mini card".
  3.  Wrap 14" of peach twine (from kit) around front of mini card and tie in a bow.  
  4. Adhere mini card to 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" piece of Smoky Slate cardstock.
  5. Create "dog"
    1. Trim 1/2" off the top of a large bunny ear sticker.  Than put back on the sticker sheet for stamping.
    2. Stamp face using ink from kit.  (note:  add a little pressure when stamping the "nose/mouth" image, so the ink goes into the scored line)
    3. Remove from sticker sheet and adhere to mini card front with Stampin' Dimensionals...I used a lot of them!
    4. For ears:  cut Smoky Slate cardstock with 3/4" Circle Punch.  Trim in half and adhere both pieces with glue dots.
  6. Trim off a 2-1/2" x 1/4" piece from the leftover peach card.  Adhere to 3" x 2-1/2" piece of Very Vanilla, then adhere to inside "mini card".
  7. Cut Peekaboo Peach hearts using Confetti Hearts Border Punch.  Adhere with fine top glue pen or glue dots.

Happy Spring Note Card

  1.  On 4-7/8" x 3-3/8" piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp bunny ear image 5 times with Dapper Denim ink to create one flower.  Use a blender pen to pull and blend the ink from the "inside petal".  You may want to do this after stamping each petal (before the ink dries).  Create as many flowers as can fit on the panel and continue to blend as you go.
  2. Cut Dapper Denim cardstock flower centers with 1/2" Circle Punch.  Adhere with Stampin' Dimensional.  Use Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to add shimmer!
  3. Stamp greeting on banner from the kit.  Adhere to panel.  Attache a piece of blue twine from the kit with a stapler, then tie in a bow.
  4. Adhere completed panel to a folded Note Card (& envelopes)
