Fun Fold with my Favorite Rewards Set: Soft Spring

Have you checked out the new Stampin' Rewards/Host Sets for this year?  They are fabulous and it's a little hard to pick my favorite.  Though, I kept coming back to the Soft Spring stamp set (149429).

Don't you just love the signs of spring when plants push make their way through the cold earth and their beautiful flowers bloom? 

Right now my Irises and Mini Irises are actually started to fade.  But they really made me smile while they were blooming.  The Soft Spring Rewards Stamp Set floral images reminds of those days of spring.

DOstamping Tips:

  • For flowers:
    • Stems = Pretty Peackcock
    • Leaves = Pear Pizzazz (stamp off first)
    • Flowers = Balmy Blue (stamp off first)
    • Brush on Clear Wink of Stella over flowers - it will also move the color around a little.
  • For dragonfly:  stamp in Pretty Peacock, then brush on Clear Wink of Stella to move color around a little.
  • For greeting:  adhere to stamped panel with Stampin' Dimensionals, only on the left edge.

149488 Garden Lane Designer Series Paper

  • Coordinating colors: Garden Green, Mint Macaron, Mossy Meadow, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Sea Foam, Whisper White
  • At first glance, you might not think any other colors would coordinate very well.  But with a closer look, I found Pretty Peacock and Balmy Blue coordinated nicely.
  • In fact, I found a couple patterns that worked nicely with that color combo

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop: Hugs From Shelli

 

Paper Pumpkin Thing Monthly Blog Hop Dawn Olchefske #paperpumpkin #dostamping
Welcome to A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop! 

I'm excited to join in with this talented group of stampers to share alternate ideas for Paper Pumpkin Kits.  Today we're sharing the May 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Hugs From Shelli.

Paper Pumpkin Hugs From Shelli Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup  #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

This month's kit is almost like a little sneak peek of the Bird Ballad Suite coming June 4th! 

I'm enjoying playing with the Hugs From Shelli kit and have a few projects to share with you.   Today I'm sharing two styles of cards, in two different colors.  Check them out...

Paper Pumpkin Hugs From Shelli Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

First up are a couple of Quick & Cute Panel cards made by cutting the card bases from the kit in half (7" x 2-1/2").  This doubles the number of cards you can get out of each card base...cool, huh?

How'd She DO That? Grateful Panel cards

  • Paper
    • Petal Pink/Pool Party (4" x 5-1/2" panel)
    • Crumb Cake/Very Vanilla (2-3/4" x 3-3/4" - to mat "half card base")
  • Ink:  Versamark and Early Espresso Stampin' Spot from kit

Paper Pumpkin Hugs From Shelli Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

Use Versamark ink to stamp flowers in upper left and lower right corners.

Paper Pumpkin Hugs From Shelli Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

Panel cards are great for when you need to send a quick little thank you note.

If you're a follower of my blog, you probably know that I enjoy creating 9-square cards.  And this month's kit was perfect for that style of card because it included printed envelopes.  I love it when there is printed envelopes in a Paper Pumpkin kit, as it gives even more options for creating alternate ideas!

In a nutshell...you'll need (9) 1" squares of 3 different patterns. 

  • For the blue card, I used the two blue envelope styles and a card base too. 
  • For the pink card, I used the two pink envelope styles (front & back).  

Paper Pumpkin Hugs From Shelli Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

How'd She DO That? 9-Square Card

  • Arrange (9) 1" squares on a 3-1/4" square of Very Vanilla, then adhere in place.
  • Adhere complete square onto 3-1/2" square of Crumb Cake. 
  • Then adhere to folded 11" x 4-1/4" card base (Pretty Peacock - coming June 4, and Petal Pink)
  • Stamp greeting near upper half of 1-1/2" circle of Crumb Cake, adhere with Stampin' Dimensionals, on lower half.  (Pretty Peacock ink - coming June 4, and Early Espresso Stampin' Spot from kit)
  • Decorate with flowers & twine from kit (adhere with glue dots), and Metallic Pearls.

 

When you subscribe to Paper Pumpkin with me, Dawn Olchefske, you'll qualify for a FREE BONUS each month. The bonus is a Tutorial PDF filled with 8 or more alternate ideas for additional projects you can make with each month's kit (includes photos & instructions) - making your kit go a lot further!

Everything is Rosy Day 3: Flip It Cards

Today I have 4 Quick & Cute (QC) "Flip It" cards to share with you.

4 Flip It cards made with the Everything is Rosy Product Medley kit (available May 2019 only) shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #cardmaking #papercrafting #everythingisrosy #flipitcards 

What is a Flip It card?  Good question.  I've probably been doing them for years, but never realized there was a name for it until I saw Karen Titus share a quick demo of it at CentreStage last month.  Oh my gosh, Flip It is the perfect name.

How'd She DO That? Flip It cards:

  1. Cut Designer Series Paper to 4" x 5-1/4"
  2. Cut that piece into two pieces - ie: cut in half or cut one third/two thirds.  (I cut mine at 1-1/2")
  3. Then... here's the "trick"...FLIP one of your pieces over.  Yes, that's it!
  4. Adhere both pieces to the front of your card, add a sentiment and decorate as desired.

These cards came together in no time at all.   

  • The sentiment labels, tag & die cut flowers were included in the kit, 
  • along with both ribbons (which I love!), 
  • 6x6 Designer Series Paper and rose gold foil, 
  • and...I almost forgot,  mirror embellishments used on the last card.

I can't decide which card is my favorite.  But I'm leaning towards the "birthday tag" card (love the bold flowers).  How about you...which one is your favorite?

If you're looking for quick & cute cards, definitely try "Flip It" cards with your Everything is Rosy Product Medley kit.

Sentimental Rose April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit alternate ideas by Dawn Olchefske #stampinup #paperpumpkin #cardmaking #cardkit #rubberstamping #diy #sentimentalrose

I'm starting off with a couple of quick and cute cards using only the products that come with the kit.

How'd She DO That? Happy Birthday :

  • Trim 1" off from front edge of So Saffron card base. (save for "Thinking of You" card below)
  • On 4-1/4" x 3" card front layer (from kit), score 1-1/2" in from the "less colored" end.
  • On larger end, stamp flowers/leaves over color splotches.
  • Turn card base around so it opens from the left.  Adhere fold-over piece to the back of the card base & decorate.

Sentimental Rose April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit alternate ideas by Dawn Olchefske #stampinup #paperpumpkin #cardmaking #cardkit #rubberstamping #diy #sentimentalrose

How'd She DO That? Thinking of You:

  • Adhere 1" x 5" So Saffron piece about 1-1/4" from bottom edge of "dotted" card base (from previous card).
  • Trim 5" x 2-3/4" card front layer (from kit) in half at 1-3/8" (you'll have two 1-3/8" x 5" strips). Cut one strip to 4-1/8" in length.
  • Stamp flowers/leaves as desired. Cut into three 1-3/8" squares.  Adhere squares to card using dimensionals, & decorate

Sentimental Rose April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit alternate ideas by Dawn Olchefske #stampinup #paperpumpkin #cardmaking #cardkit #rubberstamping #diy #sentimentalrose

How'd She DO That? 9-Square card:

  • Trim envelopes to reveal pattern paper. Cut (3) 1" squares from each pattern - total 9 squares.
  • Arrange squares on 3-1/4" Whisper White square, then adhere down. (TIP:  Start in lower right corner, then lower left corner, then the space in between them...etc)  Adhere completed panel to 3-1/2" Mint Macaron Square.
  • Stamp sentiment on label from kit with Mint Macaron ink.  Mat with Calypso Coral 1-3/8 Scallop Circle.
  • Before adhering everything to So Saffron 11" x 4-1/4" card base with dimensionals, arrange pieces to eyeball  where to stamp the leaves.   (which are stamped off first).   Adhere everything down in place.
  • Adhere twine bow (from Nature's Twine) with glue dot. Adhere enamel dot.

 

Sentimental Rose April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit alternate ideas by Dawn Olchefske #stampinup #paperpumpkin #cardmaking #cardkit #rubberstamping #diy #sentimentalrose

Don't discard the blue tissue paper that comes in your Paper Pumpkin box.   Make in into flowers using the 4-Petal Punch.   

Create TWO flowers:   1 for card, 1 for box.

  • Fold tissue paper over several times and flatten,  checking to make sure it can fit into the punch the 4-Petal Punch. 
  • Use punch to cut out several flowers at once. (I punched the folded tissue paper 3- times to get enough flower shapes to create (2) flowers.)
  • Stack them up randomly. Use the "Take your Pick" tool with paper piercing tip and Stampin' Pierce Mat to push through all the flower layers to create a hole for a Metallic Brad. 
  • Once secure, scrunch up the layers of flower. May take several "scrunches".
  • Punch an extra flower from corrugated element piece, to use as the leaves. Adhere to bottom of tissue paper flower with glue dots

And last, but not least, a card that my grandson Max (12) made for his mom.  He really wanted to use the flower/leave images and fussy cut them out.  For the flower, he inked the stamp with Flirty Flamingo and then used a Coral Calypso Stampin' Write Marker to color in the center area of the flower before stamping (I guess my stamping is rubbing off on him!).  The design is completely his own and I'm so proud of him.

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts313.  This week we're showcasing Last Chance projects using products that are retiring. Stamping with the STARS Last Chance inspiration hop #DOswts313 #dostamperstars #papercrafting #stamping #cardmaking Quick & Cute Incredible Like You card from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #DOswts313 #quickandcute

The Last Chance products I chose were the Incredible Like You stamp set and Gingham Gala 6x6 Designer Series Paper.   

The card was one of four featured at my Stamp-a-Stack last this week.  I was inspired by a swap I received from one of my STARS team members, Dawn Thomas.

  • Stamps: Incredible Like You (retiring)

    • Lemon Lime Twist - retiring (11" x 4-1/4" card base and scrap for 3-1/16" scallop circle die)

Quick & Cute Incredible Like You card from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #DOswts313 #quickandcute

This card was definitely a favorite at the class. 

One of the conversations we had during the class was, for 2-step stamping which do you prefer?  Stamp the lighter solid image first OR stamp the darker detailed first?  Which do you prefer?

If you like the Incredible Like You stamp set, not only for the floral images, but the fabulous greetings (with a fun mix of scrip and text fonts), then you'll also like the Incredible Like You Project Kit (also retiring)!

Stampin' Up! Incredible Like You Project Kit shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #projectkits

I purchase several (5) of the Incredible Like You Project Kits. Why?  Because these cards are AMAZING!  I've made up all but one of the kits and have mailed out all of the cards.  Everyone who receives one is very impressed with the card.  Not only are they gorgeous, but they are easy to make.

DOstamping Incredible Like You Project Kit Tips

  • When I'm making up a project kit, the first thing I like to do is sort all of the pieces into piles for each card.
  • Then I do the stamping.  For this kit, the only stamping is the sentiment labels which use Lovely Lipstick and Coastal Cabana ink...easy!  (great for beginning and experienced stampers alike)
  • Then I'm ready to assemble each style of card, by using the photos provided in the kit!

The kit features delicate laser-cut overlays that let the color peek through on these all-occasion cards.  Store or gift your cards in the reusable plastic storage envelope.  Makes 16 cards, 4 each of 4 designs. Folded card size: 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" (10.8 x 14 cm).

Kit includes:

  •  16 printed card bases
  • Laser-cut card front overlays
  • 16 printed envelopes
  • Glimmer, printed, and silver foil die-cut accents
  • Grapefruit Grove Baker’s Twine
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals, Adhesive dots
  • Adhesive-backed rhinestones
  • 6-5/16" x 5" x 2-5/16" (16 x 12.7 x 5.9 cm) printed polypropylene storage envelope

Coordinating colors: Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Grapefruit Grove, Lovely Lipstick, silver, white

You're friends are going to be so impressed when they receive an Incredible Like You Project Kit card from you.  OR make up the whole kit and package them up in the kit's storage envelope and give them as a gift.  They'll love you for it!

Stock up now before they are gone!

Enjoy~Dawn O

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop: Sentimental Rose

Paper Pumpkin Thing Monthly Blog Hop Dawn Olchefske #paperpumpkin #dostamping

Welcome to A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop! 

I'm excited to join in with this talented group of stampers to share alternate ideas for Paper Pumpkin Kits.  Today we're sharing the April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Sentimental Rose.

Paper Pumpkin Sentimental Rose Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

This month's kit is gorgeous!  I'm enjoying playing with it. 

Today I'm sharing two cards, one for Mom and one for Dad.  That's right, with the black and yellow tones, my mind went to a masculine card.  Check them out...

Paper Pumpkin Sentimental Rose Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

How'd She DO That? Happy Mother's Day card

For this card, I used only the elements from the kit, just in a different way.  I really wanted to bring focus to the beautiful Distinkive floral image, which is stamped on a 2-1/2" white square panel.  Then mounted to the large corrugated piece that was trimmed down to a 2-7/8" square.  Add the twine, greeting and enamel dot...and voila!  A cute and quick card came together just like that.

Paper Pumpkin Sentimental Rose Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits #masculinecards

How'd She DO That? For You card

After cutting apart some of the card bases in my kit, my eye was drawn to the black and yellow shades.  Which screamed "masculine" to me.

  • Cut a 1" x 1-1/8" piece from each of the three card base patterns.
  • Adhere them to a 3-1/4" Whisper White square.   Then adhere to a 3-1/2" So Saffron square.
  • Stamp greeting on yellow banner with black ink.  Trim the ends off, then adhere them under the greeting to create a dimensional banner.
  • Tie a piece of Black/Silver 1/4" Striped Metallic Ribbon on to a Classic Garage Metal Element.
  • Adhere to folded 8-1/2" x 4-1/4" Basic Black card base.

I hope you enjoyed these ideas. The next stop on our blog hop is Tracy Elsom.  See the full list below. 

Enjoy~Dawn O
