Punches

Apple Builder Punch: Pumpkin & Mercury Glass Designer Acetate

Today I'm sharing a couple of new products from the 2019 Holiday Catalog...Apple Builder Punch and the Mercury Glass Designer Acetate.

What happens when you combine the Apple Builder Punch to create beautiful die-cut apples (or pumpkins) for your projects with Mercury Glass Designer Acetate featuring a faux mercury glass finish on acetate sheets?

DOstamping Tips:

  1. The Mercury Glass Designer Acetate is rather thick.  DO NOT cut narrow strips (to save on paper) when punching out shapes using the Apple Builder Punch.  Be sure to punch all three shapes at the same time (apple/pumpkin, stem & leaf) to extend the life of your punch.
  2. Tips for assembling acetate pumpkin:
    1. adhere acetate to same shape of Come to Gather Designer Series Paper (I used the white pumpkins with Pretty Peacock leaves - but you can use any color/pattern behind the acetate.)
    2. adhere leaves trinket with glue dot
    3. tie off 2-1/4" piece of Crumb Cake ribbon with coordinating Cajun Craze linen thread - in a bow.  Adhere with glue dot.
    4. flip pumpkin over and adhere stem with glue dot on the backside.

The Mercury Glass Designer Acetate will add a touch of vintage shimmer to all your projects this season.  Don't forget to get the Apple Builder Punch so you can create a bushel or two of beautiful die-cut apples (or pumpkins) for your projects. Add these seasonal favorites to your shopping bag today!

Enjoy~Dawn O

  • For unique textured leaves:
    • Fold 2" of Pretty Peacock 1/2" Scalloped Linen Ribbon in half (secure with a glue dot), then adhere to back of flower with glue dots 
  • Adhere flowers to card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Don't forget to finish off with Perennial Essence Floral Centers (they're awesome!)

Quick & Cute: Come To Gather Card

Today I'm sharing a Quick & Cute (QC) card using the Come To Gather Suite of products.

Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog Gather Together stamp set card from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #thanksgiving #cometogather

I have to admit...at first I wasn't too sure about the color scheme of the Come to Gather Designer Series Paper.  But after playing with it, I'm totally in LOVE now!  Especially the addition of Pretty Peacock.

150454 Come To Gather Designer Sereis Paper from Stampin' Up! | 2019 Holiday Catalog #dostamping #stampinup #papercrafting #cardmaking

150454 Come to Gather Designer Series Paper

Coordinating colors:

  • Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, Merry Merlot, Mint Macaron, Pear Pizzazz, Pretty Peacock, Whisper White
  • Also - I'd recommend Crumb Cake &/or Gray Granite too

How'd She DO That? QC Season of Thanks card

  • Stamps: Gather Together
  • Paper:
    • Whisper White thick (11" x 4-1/4" card base and scrap for Timeless Label Punch)
    • Pretty Peacock (3-1/8" x 3-3/4" size)
    • Early Espresso (scrap for 2" Circle Punch
    • Come To Gather Designer Series Paper (three pieces each 1-3/4" x 4")
  • Ink:  Pretty Peacock
  • Other:  2" Circle Punch, Timeless Label Punch, 1/2" Pretty Peacock Scallop Linen Ribbon,  SNAIL & Stampin' Dimensionals

Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog Gather Together stamp set card from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #thanksgiving #cometogather

DOstamping Tip:

  • This card comes together quickly with the 3 strips of DSP.  The hardest part is picking out your favorite patterns.
  • When stamping the pumpkins on Pretty Peacock layer... mount both stamps on same block for ease of stamping. 
  • Punches are my favorite way to add greetings and layers.  Sandwich between ribbon and it finishes off a card nicely!

Not only will I be reaching for the Gather Together stamp set again, but I'll also be using this layout again...it's a winner.

Get ready for the fall season now by adding Come To Gather Suite of products to your shopping bag today.

Enjoy~Dawn O

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
  • Other:  Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush, Baker's Twine, SNAIL & Stampin' Dimensionals

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

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

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!

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.

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

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

Enjoy~Dawn O
