Stampin' Up! Sailing Home Birthday Card

 

Today I'm sharing a card we made at my Stamp-a-Stack class this week, using the Sailing Home Bundle (includes Smooth Sailing  Dies).  

Stampin' Up! Sailing Home Bundle card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #birthdaycards #masculinecards

My Stamp-a-Stack classes are very popular.  We make 2 cards of 4 designs (total 8 cards) - a variety of occasions.  This was one of the favorites (well...they are all favorites, LOL!).  If you're in the Twin Cities area, you're invited to attend.  You'll find my schedule here.

How'd She DO That? Sailing Home Birthday card

  • Stamps/Punch:  Darling Label Punch Box
  • Bundles: Sailing Home (includes Smooth Sailing Dies)
  • Paper:
    • Night of Navy (11" x 4-1/4" card base)
    • Whisper White (3" x 4-1/4", scraps for punch & die)
    • Balmy Blue (3/4" x 4-3/4")
    • Designer Series Paper (1-1/4" x 4" striped, 1" x 4" sailboats )
  • Ink: Night of Navy

DOstamping Quick Tip:

  1. The Sailing Home stamp set doesn't include a Happy Birthday sentiment.  So I reached for the Darling Label Punch Box and found exactly what I was looking for!
  2. Use the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to "blend" color on the sailboat.  It appears like the "water" is shining on it.

Celebrate 4th of July: Patriotic Daisy Lane Card

I was wondering what I'd use for a 4th of July card this year and I recalled t-shirt I used to have that had red, white and blue daisies on it.  I thought that could translate to a patriotic card.   

With the Daisy Lane stamp set & Medium Punch (Bundle & Save 10%) - in Red, White & Blue, it's the perfect size & color for today's card!

Patriot Daisy Lane (from Stampin' Up!) card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #daisylane

DOstamping Patriotic Daisy Lane card:

  • Bundles: Daisy Lane stamp, with Medium Daisy Punch (SAVE 10%)
  • Paper:
    • Blueberry Bushel (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base)
    • Whisper White (5/8" x 4-3/4" and scraps for punching)
    • Real Red (scrap for 2-1/8" Stitched Shape Die square) 
  • Ink: Real Red, Basic Gray (stamp off), Blueberry Bushel
  • Other:   Clear Faceted Gems, SNAIL, Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals

Patriot Daisy Lane (from Stampin' Up!) card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #daisylane

How'd She DO That? tips:

  • Be sure to stamp and punch two daisy punch out for each flower.
  • For the "white" daisy - I used Basic Gray ink, but stamped off first.  (I tried using a white flower with no stamping, but that didn't look right to me)
  • Adhere flowers together with glue dots, then to card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Have I told you..."I love this medium size daisy flower".  It's the perfect size!!  I know you'll like the size too.  Add the Daisy Lane Bundle (151118) to your shopping bag today!  

Enjoy~Dawn O

Vintage Style Daisy Lane Card & 3 Ways to Sponge

Last weekend we spent an extended weekend at our cabin.  It was nice and peaceful, which gave me time to stamp for fun. 

One of the stamp sets I brought with me as the NEW Daisy Lane stamp set.  Also available in a Bundle & Save 10% with the NEW Medium Daisy Punch.  This was one of the projects I came up with...

Vintage style Daisy Lane (from Stampin' Up!) card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #daisylane

For this card, I kinda went "old school" and reached for my Stamping Sponges, which I haven't done in a long time.  It actually brought back memories from when I first began stamping.  Sponging was all the rage!

DOstamping Vintage Daisy Lane card:

  • Stamps/Bundles: Daisy Lane
  • Paper:
    • Sahara Sand (11" x 4-1/4" card base, scrap for "tag") 
    • Whisper White (4" x 5-1/4")
    • Old Olive (scrap for 3-1/8" x 1-13/16" rectangle)
    • Crushed Curry (scraps for daisies)
  • Ink: Sahara Sand, Old Olive
  • Other:  Stamping Sponges, Timeless Label Punch, Linen Thread, SNAIL, Glue Dots, & Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Shopping List:  see below

Vintage style Daisy Lane (from Stampin' Up!) card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #daisylane

How'd She DO That? tips:

Create a different kind of background with a "swiped" direct to paper look from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #papercrafting #stampingtechniques

Direct to Paper Technique:

  • On Whisper White panel, swipe Sahara Sand ink using Direct to Paper technique.  Drag ink pad across cardstock.  
  • I did the top half in one direction and the bottom half in the other direction
  • TIP:  depending on how firmly you press on to the cardstock will determine how dark the ink will transfer.  I prefer a light to medium "press" (you can always add more if you want).

Learn 3 types of sponging from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #papercrafting #stampingtechniques

Three Ways to Sponge:

  1. For the "swiped" panel, first stamp multiple leaves with Old Olive ink, stamp a couple times before re-inking again.  Then sponge the edges using a "circular" motion.  Start off the cardstock (on scratch paper), moving onto the edges of the panel.  Repeat on all four sides.  Repeat again for a darker edge (the photo shows a darker edge)
  2. For the Old Olive Rectangle, I used a "flicking motion".  Hold the cardstock in one hand and the sponge in the other.  Press sponge onto ink pad, then "flick" the sponge against the edges of the cardstock.
  3. For the Daisy pieces:
    1. Cut 4 flowers using the Medium Daisy Punch (you'll need 2 flowers for each full flower)
    2. The flowers I pounced ink in the center, carefully moving outwards a little bit.  Then "flick" the tip of the petals.  NOTE:  you'll need to flower punch outs for each flower.
    3. The flower center is stamped stamped tone-on-tone (Sahara Sand) using the large daisy image.  Sponge the center, then fussy cut out (or use 1/2" circle punch.  Then "flicked" the edges.

03

Transform Timeless Label punch out into a tag by trimming off one end.  I see myself using this "trick" a lot in the future!

Vintage style Daisy Lane (from Stampin' Up!) card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #daisylane

I have to admit, this was not the card I started out to create.  But as I only brought limited supplies with me, it forced me to go in a different direction.  In the end, I was more than pleased with the finished card.  What do you think?

So...you may have noticed over the past few weeks, I seem to have a new "favorite" stamp set each week.

This week, my favorite is the Daisy Lane Bundle (151118 - save 10%)

  • It's easy to show your friends & family how much you love and support them with a stunning daisy card, like today's card.
  • And...the Medium Daisy Punch is a fun way to add daisies to your projects (size is approximately 1-5/8")

You'll definitely want to add the Daisy Lane Bundle to your shopping bag today!  And while there, be sure to stop by the Clearance Rack, as it's been refreshed with new deals!

Enjoy~Dawn O

Pop of Petals Wreath Panel Card

Often I get asked where I get my inspiration from.  There are several answers to that question.  However for today's Pop of Petals Wreath Panel card, the inspiration came directly from Stampin' Up!. 

Four times a year, Stampin' Up! demonstrators receive a Stampin' Success magazine filled with creative and business inspiration.  I fold over the corners of the pages that inspire me and CASE those projects for my classes and clubs.  Why not, right?   I appreciate that Stampin' Up! provides samples for us to copy.  Just a little something to make my "job" easier.

Stampin' Up!  Pop of Petals panel card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #popofpetals #birthdaycards

Today's card is an example of a Stampin' Success project, that I used for my Stamping Club Class last month.  I left most everything the same with the exception of the greeting.  Other changes I made,  the white piece opens (like a "mini card"),  with a 1/4 sheet card base panel.   (Yes - I like panel cards!)

How'd She DO That? tips for Pop of Petals Wreath Panel card:

  • Stamps:  Pop of Petals, Itty Bitty Birthdays
  • Paper:
    • Soft Sea Foam (4-1/4 x 5-1/2" card base and 5/8" x 4" sentiment)
    • Whisper White (3-1/2" x 5-1/2" score at 4-1/4", and 4-1/2" x 1-1/2" for border punch)
    • Petal Pink (scraps for flowers)
  • Ink:  Soft Sea Foam, Mossy Meadow, Petal Pink
  • Other:  4-Petal Flower Punch, 2-1/4" Circle Punch (for wreath template),  Gold Faceted Gems, Linen Thread, Glue Dots, & Stampin' Dimensionals

Tips for creating a wreath using Pop of Petals stamp set from Stampin' up! - by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #popofpetals

DOstamping Tips:

  1. On 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece of Soft Sea Foam - stamp "flower group" with same ink in upper left and lower right corners
  2. Fold 3-1/2" x 8-1/2" Whisper White cardstock in half (to create a mini card)
  3. Creating the stamped wreath:
    • Cut a circle template with 2-1/4" Circle Punch. 
    • Place on front of folded "mini card" and use a pencil to draw around the circle.  
    • Stamp leaf image around circle with Mossy Meadow ink (the line will be the center of the leaf).  Stamp one leaf, then before reinking, stamp again (moving around the circle). 
    • Repeat until the wreath is complete.
  4. Cut 1-1/2" x 4-1/2" strip of Whisper White with Decorative Ribbon Border Punch and adhere to back of folded white piece.  Then adhere stamped mini card to stamped Soft Sea Foam panel.
  5. Stamp greeting on 4" x 5-/8" strip (towards right edge), and adhere over wreath.
  6. Stamp (3) flowers on Petal Pink scrap with Petal Pink ink.  Cut out with Four-Petal Flower Punch.  Adhere to card with Glue Dots.  Attach Gold Faceted Gems to flower centers.
  7. Tie (2) 10" lengths of twine in a bow, adhere with a Glue Dot 

Stampin' Up!  Pop of Petals panel card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #popofpetals #birthdaycards

I'm lovin' that the Pop of Petals stamp set is for more than just flowers.  Anything that can make a wreath, I'm all for!!

When you purchase this stamp set, be sure to add the matching punch to your shopping bag too!

Enjoy~Dawn O

Stamping with the STARS #316: Above The Clouds Bridge Fun Fold Card

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts316.  Today we're showcasing Bridge Fun Fold Cards. 

Stamping with the Stars #DOswts316 #dostamperSTARS #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting, #funfold


Bridge Fun Fold card using Stampin' Up! Above the Clouds Bundle.  Card by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the Stars #DOswts316 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting, #funfold

Bridge cards are a fun fold style of card, named for the piece that "bridges the two sides together.  It's surprisingly easy to make and fun to decorate.

How'd She DO That? Above the Clouds Bridge card:

  • Bundle:  Above the Clouds Bundle (save 10% on stamp set and matching Hot Air Balloon Punch),
  • Paper:
    • Whisper White Thick (4-1/4" x 8" card base, score at  1-1/4" & 2-1/2" from each end)
    • Whisper White Thick (scraps for punching)
    • Coastal Cabana (5-1/2" x 1-1/4")
    • Designer Series Paper ( 1-1/8"  x 4-1/4 strips - two of blue and two of "colored stripes", 5-1/2" x 1-1/8")  )
  • Ink: Coastal Cabana, Calypso Coral, Pacific Point, Basic Gray
  • Other:  1-1/2" Circle Punch, SNAIL, Mini Stampin' Dimensionals and Tear & Tape.

Bridge Fun Fold card using Stampin' Up! Above the Clouds Bundle.  Card by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the Stars #DOswts316 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting, #funfold

DOstamping Tips:

  • Start with the card base (largest piece).  Complete the scoring, folding, stamping and decorating.
  • Then create and decorate the "bridge" piece.
  • Note:  For the "balloons solid shape" - stamp off the Coastal Cabana balloon image once.  Stamp-off the Calypso Coral balloon twice.
  • I recommend using Tear & Tape to adhere the "bridge" to the card base  (on the end panels only).
  • To see a video demonstration of  making a Bridge Fun Fold card, be sure to check out my How'd She DO That? video from last year.

Here they all are at OnStage, along with DOstamperSTARS lanyards and name tag banners!

We had such a great time at OnStage, being together, swapping and seeing all of the "coming soon" products.  If you're looking for a fun group of stampers to join, you will enjoy the STARS.  Learn more here.

If you know me, I really love adding little touches like ribbon, trim and bling to my projects.  And if you're like me, you'll miss some of the retiring ribbon/trims (see shopping list below).  So, be sure to stock up on your favorites before they are gone.

Enjoy~Dawn O

Stampin' Up! Bloom By Bloom Bundle and All That You Are stamp set shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting 

DOstamping Tips:

  • When creating your own collage-style background, start with larger images working down to the smallest image.
  • Use the Bitty Blooms Punch Pack to add little touches of surprise to the card.
  • As the Bloom by Bloom stamp set doesn't have any sentiment, after a short search I found a sentiment that played off the "blooms" (from All That You Are  - Occasions catalog)

Whether for Birthdays, Thinking of You or Mother's Day...the Bloom by Bloom Bundle will fit your needs with it's playful flower images.  Add it to your shopping bag today!  

Enjoy~Dawn O
