Quick & Cute

Two More Wonderfully Wicked Ideas

Like I said on Saturday, as I was playing with the Wonderfully Wicked stamp set, I came up with a couple more ideas.  Both of these cards are quick and perfectly spooky, great for Halloween cards.  Check them out...

This one was directly inspired from Saturday's card - the inside of the card.  I combined individual greetings & images to create a custom sentiment.   I thought it would make for a fun focal point, and it did!

How'd She DO That? Wicked Good Time card

  • Stamps: Wonderfully Wicked
  • Paper:
    • Highland Heather (11" x 4-1/4" card base)

DOstamping Quick Tips:

  • Stamp a few spider webs at the top of the folded card base with Gorgeous Grape ink.
  • NOTE:  the spider web on the circle was stamped with Highland Heather ink.

This card is actually going in the mail to my hubby's sister who's birthday is 10/31 - that's right, Halloween.  I always question him, "are you sure she wants a Halloween card for her birthday?".  His answer is always, "yes".

This next one with the googly eyes is perfect for my grandsons - especially the goofy looking cat.

For this card, I used a sketch shared by my friend, Julie Davison.  I enjoy working with sketches and this one was an easy one!

Stampin' Up! Beauty & Joy: Easy Spotlight Card

Today I'm sharing a card that made me smile when I made it...love it when that happens.  First off, I'm using a new 2019 Holiday Catalog stamp set called, Beauty & Joy.  

2019 Holiday Catalog Beauty & Joy stamp set, with EASY Spotlight Technique by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

This Distinktive* stamp set has a special texture that gives added depth and dimension in a single step, creating photo-realistic images.  The basket particularly shows off the Distinktive style. 

How'd She DO That? Beauty & Joy Spotlight card

  • Stamps: Beauty & Joy
  • Paper:
    • Crumb Cake (8-1/2" x 4-1/4" card base) 
    • Very Vanilla (3-1/2" square)
    • Early Espresso (3-5/8" square)
  • Ink:  Crushed Curry, Terracotta Tile, Soft Suede, Early Espresso
  • Other:   Sponge Daubers, Stitched Rectangle Dies, Linen Thread, SNAIL, Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals

2019 Holiday Catalog Beauty & Joy stamp set, with EASY Spotlight Technique by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

DOstamping Tips:

  1. I recommend stamping the images from the bottom, building to the top.
  2. For the leaves, ink stamp first with Crushed Curry.  Before stamping, use a Sponge Dauber to add Terracotta Tile ink randomly to the leaves.  Breathe on stamp to re-moisten and then stamp.
  3. Stamp sentiment slightly overlapping leave image.
  4. To create the "spotlight" - die cut sentiment with Stitched Rectangle Die.
  5. When assembling card - adhere sentiment last with Stampin' Dimensionals.

2019 Holiday Catalog Beauty & Joy stamp set, with EASY Spotlight Technique by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

When I first started stamping this card, I wasn't sure what direction I was going.  I thought I'd add the sentiment as a separate layer.  But I didn't want it to cover up the two-toned leaves.  Then the idea hit me..."spotlight" the sentiment.  It was the perfect way to step-up this card just a little bit.  And...it was a hit at my club class last week!

Your day with bloom with beauty and joy as you create amazing projects using the Beauty & Joy Stamp Set.  I definitely recommend adding it to your Shopping Bag today!

Enjoy~Dawn O

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

Stamping with the STARS #322: Come To Gather Sketch

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts322.  This week we're showcasing a fun and easy sketch.

#DOswts322 | Stamping with the STARS Sketch inspiration hop #DOstamperSTARS #sketch #dostamperSTARS #DOswts322 | Stamping with the STARS Sketch inspiration hop #DOstamperSTARS #sketch

For today's sketch inspiration, I pulled out some new product from the 2019 Holiday Catalog Come To Gather Suite.

Holiday Catalog Come to Gather sketch card by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #DOswts322 #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #dostamperSTARS

Fall is my favorite time of year! 

So it was natural the Come To Gather Designer Series Paper caught my attention.  It was a perfect choice for today's sketch.

How'd She DO That? Come To Gather card:

  • Stamps/ Bundles: Gather Together Bundle (includes Gathered Leaves Dies - save 10%)  
  • Paper:
    • Gray Granite (11" x 4-1/4" card base)
    • Whisper White (3" x 4-1/4", scrap for punch)
    • Cajun Craze (3/4" x 4-3/4")
    • Early Espresso (scrap for leaf die)
    • Come To Gather Designer Series Paper (1-1/4" x 4" wood, 1" x 4" dots )
  • Ink:  Early Espresso
  • Other:   Darling Label Punch Box (punch), Leaves Trinkets, Come To Gather Ribbon Combo, SNAIL, Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals

Holiday Catalog Come to Gather sketch card by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #DOswts322 #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #dostamperSTARS

One of the fun things about the leave dies is, three of them both emboss and cut.  It adds a nice dimension to the card, don't you think?

This sketch is a keeper.  It's going in my bag of tricks for future card designs.  I definitely recommend giving it a try.

And...if you're a fall-lover like me, then you'll enjoy the Come To Gather Suite of products!  Add them to your shopping bag today!  

Enjoy~Dawn O

Stamping with the STARS #321: Woven Threads Designer Series Paper

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts321.  This week we're showcasing Designer Series Paper.

DOstamperSTARS Inspiration hop - #DOswts321 - showcasing Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper #dostamperSTARS #stampinup #papercrafting #stamping

Stampin' Up! Woven Threads DSP card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC321 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting

I chose the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper.  It gives the look of woven rugs and textured fabric with printed variations and irregularities for an authentic feel.   Plus, it coordinates will all of our 2019-2021 In Colors!

149497-WovenThreadsDSP

The card comes together quick and easy.  See below for measurements, as well as a ribbon tip.

Stampin' Up! Woven Threads DSP card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC321 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting

I really like the look of the Sahara Sand 5/8" Woven Threads Trim transformed into tassels.  It was easy to do - see my tips below.

DOstamping Tips:

  • Stamp sentiment on Sahara Sand piece, then cut end into banner shape.  Place a strip of Tear & Tape on backside of banner.
  • Gently remove the "tassel" thread from 3" of the Sahara Sand 5/8" Woven Threads Trim.  Adhere to backside of banner (on the Tear & Tape).  Then adhere banner to card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Adhere sequins to card using Fine-Tip Glue Pen.

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

  • *Must be a current Paper Pumpkin subscriber to order this item.

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.

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.

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!
