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

 

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

How'd She DO That? Flower card:

  1. Stamp flower image with Pool Party ink on "text" card base (from kit)
  2. Adhere scrunch flower with  glue dots to Blushing Bride cardstock cut with Story Label Punch. then to card with dimensionals.
  3. Add decorative touches with Silver Mini Sequin Trim and Pool Party/Silver Baker's Twine. 


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

How'd She DO That? Flower Box:

  1. Fold & fill Clear Tiny Treat Box.
  2. Wrap with Silver 3/8" Metallic Edge Ribbon, tie in a knot.  Attach flower to ribbon, using the brad prongs wrapped around the ribbon knot. 
  3. Add decorative touches with Silver Mini Sequin Trim and Pool Party/Silver Baker's Twine and stamped tag.

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.

3 More Alternate ideas with Grown With Kindness Paper Pumpkin Kit

I had fun thinking outside-the-box with the Grown With Kindness Paper Pumpkin kit from February, and came up with a few alternate ideas.

Feb 2019 Paper Pumpkin - Grown with Kindness alternate cards from Dawn Olchefske.  Subscribe with Dawn here:  http://bit.ly/DOstampingPaperPumpkin  #paperpumpkin #dostamping #stampinup #alternateideas #HowdSheDOthat #cardkits

As you can see, it came with a fabulous stamp set filled with usable greetings, a darling cup with plant and some fun border images too.  Speaking of border images...check out this card!

Border Flower card

  • The "flowers" were created with one of the border images.  Stamp horizontally, then vertically intersecting in the middle.  Then stamp two more times, always intersecting in the center.  For winter, these could even be snowflakes, don't you think?
  • The greeting was stamped on a Lemon Lime Twist cut out using the Story Label Punch.  Fold over the top, to make a flat edge.  Then attach to stamped panel with twine, using a stapler.
  • Adhere to black card base from the kit.  Attach metallic dots from kit.
  • Colors: Lemon Lime Twist & black (Tuxedo Black Memento ink)

Poppy Cactus Flower card

  • Trim 3/4" from the top of the "photo card panel", and adhere to folded Crumb Cake "mini card " (4” x 8-1/2" score & fold at 4-1/4").  Then adhere to center of Poppy Parade (5-1/2" x 4-1/4” panel card base).
  • Wrap Linen Thread around card front twice and tie in a bow.  Attach metallic dots from kit.

Succulent Thank You cards

  • Create TWO cards from one photo card panel & one black card base.
  • Fold a black card base (from kit), the cut in half at 2-3/4"
  • Cut photo panel card into two pieces measuring 2-3/4" x 2-3/8"  - adhere one to each of the card halves.  Adhere each card half to a 4-1/4" x 5-1/4" Fresh Fig panel - lining up with a top or side edge (as desired)
  • Greeting is cut with 1-1/4" Circle, backed with 1-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch.  Finish off with twine wrapped around card half front, tie in a bow.

Life is Grand with Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper

Are you behind with making and sending out birthday cards? 

If so, I have a quick & cute card for you today using the new Life is Grand stamp set and Beautiful Butterfly Designer Series Paper (FREE with $50 order)!

Stampin' Up! Life is Grand, Botanical Butterfly DSP (free during Sale-a-Bration by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #simplestamping #birthdaycards

I was inspired by a swap card I received from Susan Campfield.   I really liked her card, but I wanted to see more of the beautiful Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper.  So I turned the card to a portrait position, instead of landscape.  Yay, more DSP to see!  Thanks Susan for the inspiration!

How'd She DO That? tips for Make a Wish Butterfly card:

  • Stamps: Life is Grand
  • Paper:
    • Whisper White Thick (11" x 4-1/4" card base)  or (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base) 
    • Whisper White (4-1/4" x 1-1/2" if using Banner Triple Punch.  If not, 4" x 1-1/2")
    • Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper (4" x 3") - FREE with $50 order
    • Gorgeous Grape (4-1/4 x 3-1/4")
  • Ink: Gorgeous Grape

148744 Life is Grand Stamp Set #stampinup

True confessions:

  • At first glance, the Life is Grand stamp set did not appeal to me. 
  • But when I saw cards using the set, I found I had to have it! 
  • I'm glad I did, as I'm enjoying the large greetings and inside sentiments too. 

If you're like me, you might find yourself giving Life is Grand a second look.  Add it to your shopping bag today!

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop: Be My Valentine

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

Welcome to the A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop! 

I'm excited to join this talented group of stampers to share alternate ideas for Paper Pumpkin Kits.  Today we're sharing the January 2019 Paper Pumpkin - Be My Valentine

First off - this month's kit is awesome!  You get supplies to make 24 pillow boxes.  Plus - the paper is double-sided, so you choose your favorite design (Pool Party or Melon Mambo).  Not only are the die cuts cute, but I'm enjoying the stamp set too!  Especially love the two bird images.

Paper Pumpkin Be My Valentine Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #bemyvalentine #valentinesdaycards

I have two alternate ideas to share with you.  The first one uses Stampin' Up!'s Note Cards & Envelopes (my favorite!).  They're great for quick stamping.

Just stamp your images with Tuxedo Black ink and color with Pool Party Stampin' Blends Combo.  Adhere the heart and finish off with Pool Party & Silver Baker's Twine.  Voila - you're done in no time at all with this quick and cute card...that you could send to anyone, at anytime!

Next up is another quick and cute card, just stepped up a notch.

How'd She DO That? Tips for Be Mine Birds Card:

  • Paper:
    • Pool Party(5-1/2" x 8-1/2"card base)
    • Whisper White (4" x 1" trim ends into banner shape)
    • Pillow Box pieces (two partial circles from box ends)
  • Ink: Tuxedo Black Memento Ink
  • Stampin' Blends:  Pool Party Combo, Flirty Flamingo Combo, Light Daffodil Delight (beaks)
  • Other:  Silver Mini Sequin Trim

Paper Pumpkin Be My Valentine Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #bemyvalentine #valentinesdaycards

I bet you're wondering how I cut that oval?  Well...

  • I've been trimming the ends off the pillow boxes to use the pattern paper for cards. 
  • Then I was finding these "half circles" all over my stamping table. 
  • I decided to add them to the back of the banner, to make them appear like an oval.  Pretty clever, right? 
  • So...save your scraps!

Meant to Be Sweet Cups

Oh my gosh - I'm so excited to share a fun Sweet Cup with you today!

I was shopping at Target and came across heart shaped Mini Mousse Cakes (Archer Farms) and they spoke to me! 

I haven't event eaten one yet.  It was my swap for my STARS team get-together potluck and shoebox swap that we had on Sunday.

Stampin' Up! Valentine Sweet Cups by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #stamping #diy #papercrafting #valentinetreats

It was so easy to put together and fun too!  I reached for the obvious, the All my Love Suite products.  When looking at this suite, don't forget to check out page 6 too, for the Meant To Be stamp set/bundle.

How'd She DO That? All My Love Sweet Cup:

  • Meant To Be stamp set
  • Sweet Cup
  • All My Love Designer Series Paper (for 2-7/8" Stitched Shape circle die)
  • Whisper White (scrap for Pretty Label Punch
  • Tuxedo Black Memento Ink
  • All of my Love Ribbon Combo Pack

Stampin' Up! Valentine Sweet Cups by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #stamping #diy #papercrafting #valentinetreats

DOstamping Tips:

  1. Use the 1/8" Circle Handheld Punch to cut two holes in the Sweet Cup (near each other) for the ribbon to thread through (so the ribbon stays in place)
    • NOTE:  Stampin' Up! just announced the 1/8" Circle Handheld Punch will be retiring and is currently only available while supplies last (due to the manufacturer discontinuing the product.)
  2. Thread ribbon through both holes, wrap around Sweet Cup and tie in a bow.  Slide bow all the way over to the holes (to cover them).
  3. Cut 3 pieces of tissue paper into 4" x 4" squares and place into Sweet Cup.  (I found the "valentine" colored tissue paper at Target)
  4. Place "Mini Mousse Cake" into Sweet Cup (mini cakes also found at Target)

I'm pretty sure any of your Valentine sweethearts will love receiving a cake filled Sweet Cup (or filled with any treat).  Add them to your shopping bag today, so they'll arrive in time for the special day!  

Enjoy~Dawn O

Dawn's Simple Stamping Tips:

  • When creating your own stamped background, start with the largest image working down to the smallest image.
    • tool box = Real Red
    • gas can = Crushed Curry
    • bolts = Basic Gray
  • I like to turn my cardstock as I'm stamping so the images are all in different directions.

Stampin' Up! announces popular products either already unorderable or approaching unorderable status:

Items approaching not-orderable status

  • Butterfly Duet Punch (item 148523)
    • Sales for this product have exceeded our forecast and are continuing strong, resulting in a significant number of backorders.
    • Due to the Chinese New Year and port congestion delays, estimated arrival is mid-March.
    • In order to give you time to contact your customers so they may close any affected orders, this product will remain available until Friday, January 25 at 10:00 AM (MT); it will then be placed in not-orderable status, until our stock is replenished. 
  • Cake Builder Punch (item 148525)
    • Sales for this product have exceeded our forecast. Although not currently on backorder, we expect to deplete our inventory of this product within the next two weeks.  It will no longer be orderable as soon as inventory is depleted.
    • Due to Chinese New Year and port congestion delays, estimated arrival is mid-March.

When you enter item numbers for either of these products, you will receive a pop-up notification asking if you would like to be notified via email when they are back in stock. This will allow you to find out immediately when the status changes for these items and they are again available for purchase.

Important note: Both of these amazing punches will carry over into the 2019–2020 annual catalog.

In addition, Sale-a-Bration Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack - Sold Out

  • The Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack (item 149623) may be one of our most popular Sale-A-Bration items ever.
  • t’s been so popular, in fact, that it has exceeded our product forecast and sold out in our North American markets.
  • We have a shipment coming in to fulfill backorders, but because this item has been in such high demand, we have been forced to turn-off the Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack.
  • Unfortunately, this initial shipment will help us fulfill only orders that have already been placed.
  • Once backorders have been fulfilled, a second shipment will arrive at the beginning of March, which will allow us to turn-on this item again; it will be available while supplies last only.
We’re so sorry for the inconvenience.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.
