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)

Beetles & Bugs: Magnifying Glass Punch Art

Today I'm sharing...a Beetles & Bugs Magnifying Glass Punch Art card.  

This creepy crawly stamp set reminds me of elementary school when we made bug displays. Did you ever do that?  I think handling a bug stamp is so much better than touching them in real life!  Of course, when you're dealing with bugs, you might need a magnifying glass.  So here you go...

Stampin' Up! Beetles & Bugs punch art shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping

 Lady Bug Hugs card

  1. Place (do not adhere yet) magnifying glass (see below for instructions) on 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White Thick cardstock.  Make a visual note where you'd like to stamp a lady bug image through the "glass", as well as other places on the card.  Remove and stamp lady bugs (Beetles & Bugs stamp set) with Archival Basic Black ink (note: leave room for greeting too).  Color with Real Red Stampin' Write Marker.
  2. Adhere stamped/colored panel to folded 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" Read Red card base
  3. Adhere magnifying glass to card using Foam Adhesive Strips.
  4. Stamp letters of greeting on Whisper White Thick scraps using Labeler Alphabet stamp set and Real Red ink.  Cut each word out and adhere to card with Foam Adhesive Strips.
  5. Tie Whisper White Baker's Twine in a bow and adhere with Glue Dot. 

Stampin' Up! Beetles & Bugs punch art shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping

Magnifying Glass Punch Art

  1. Die cut (2) Basic Black "circle frames" using Layering Circle Framelits (1-5/8" & 2-1/8") - die cut both dies at the same time, one inside the other. (You'll need two of these)
  2. Die cut Window Sheet using 2-1/8" Circle.  Adhere together sandwiched between both circle frames.
  3. Die cut Basic Black, the letter "I" using Large Letters Framelits.  Trim down to 1-3/4" and adhere behind frame.

I think this set would be great for lots of types of cards & scrapbook pages...for kids, teachers, get well and more.  The Labeler Alphabet stamp set lets you get creative for any occasion for sending cards! !

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #213: Best Badge Owl Punch Art

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

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #213-Home Sweet Home

When I saw today's Home Sweet Home photo inspiration, I knew right away I was going to do some punch art.  I haven't done punch art in a very long time, but I've been itchin' to make an owl with the Best Badge punch.  Now's the perfect time.

Stampin' Up! Best Badge Punch with Love Notes Framelits Owl created by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC213 #dostamping

Here's the first two I made.  I couldn't decide between Flirty Flamingo (left) and Sweet Sugarplum (right).  In the end, I  went with a traditional Valentine's color...Real Red.

Stampin' Up! Best Badge Punch with Love Notes Framelits Owl created by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC213 #dostamping

  4. Stamp greeting (Sealed with Love stamp set) with Real Red ink

Best Badge Owl Punch List

  • Best Badge = Real Red (body
  • Blossom Builder = Real Red (2 wings)
  • Owl Builder = Basic Black (eyes), Peekaboo Peach heart (nose)
  • 3/4" Circle = Whisper White (eyes)
