It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge.  This week we're having a "Sketch" challenge.  

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #279 - Sketch Pad #dostamping #stampinup

For this week's sketch - I reached for some "early release" products that are coming soon - May 1st.  It's the Share What You Love Suite, and I'm completely in love with these products.  The paper is simply gorgeous, the stamp-set(s), are must-haves and the embellishments are delightful.  This suite is in honor of Stampin' Up!'s 30th year anniversary and they have outdone themselves.  Take a sneak peek...

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #275: Perennial Birthday & Tutti Frutti DSP

It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge.  This week we're having a "Sketch Pad" challenge.  

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge DSC#275 #dostamping #sketch #dostamperSTARS #cardmaking

I'm lovin' this week's sketch pad challenge.  It lends itself to a quick & cute card, just my style.  

I reached for the Tutti-Frutti Designer Series Paper and was immediately drawn to the black striped pattern.  And as I already had the Perennial Birthday stamp set out (for another project) - I thought they might pair together nicely.  And they did - love the results!

After completing the first card, I started to experiment with some of the other Tutti-Frutti patterns and found a fun Lemon Lime Twist panel.  I couldn't decide which one I liked best - so I'm sharing them both!

How'd She DO That tips for Perennial Birthday card:

  1. Stamps: Perennial Birthday
  2. Paper:
    • Thick Whisper White (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base & scrap for 2" Circle Punch)
    • Basic Black or Melon Mambo (3/4" x 5")
    • Tutti Frutti 6x6 Designer Series Paper (4" x 3-1/2")
  3. Ink: Tuxedo Memento Black, Melon Mambo, Lemon Lime Twist, Daffodil Delight
  4. Other:  2" Circle Punch, Whisper White Bakers Twine, Basic Rhinestone Jewels & Stampin' Dimensionals
  5. Shopping Links:  See below for a full supply list with links to shop online

Tip:  I found stamping on the 2" circle punch out easier than trying to stamp, then punch (which is what I usually do).  And since I made 20 of these for an upcoming swap, I pull out the Stamparatus - coming June 1

Here's how I used the Stamparatus:

  • Punch a 2" circle out of a larger piece of cardstock.  And place the large piece of cardstock in the Stamparatus.
  • Place the 2" circle punch-out in the negative space.
  • Line up the various stamps on the Stamparatus plates (you have FOUR surfaces)
  • Stamp a way!  Not only is it quick, but it's fun too.
  • My husband helped me with the project.  He did one plate and I did the other plate.  We got done in no time at all.  He's not much for actual stamping, but when we got done stamping using the Stamparatus he said, "that was a lot of fun".  He's busted now.  I'm pretty sure he'll be stamping with me again!

Which is your favorite?  Black Stripe or Lemon Lime Twist?  Whichever you choose, you can make them both, as both patterns are found in the Tutti Frutti 6x6 Designer Series Paper Pack.  Add it to your shopping bag today...and don't forget the Perennial Birthday stamp set too!

This week's sketch pad challenge comes together quick & easy.  Especially with a Berry Burst monochromatic color scheme!  Choose a larger image for the oval shape (like from the FREE Sale-a-Bration Happy Wishes stamp set) and you're ready to go!    

How'd She DO That tips for Sale-A-Bration Happy Wishes card:

  1. Stamps: Happy Wishes - Sale-A-Bration
  2. Paper:

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #259: Quilted Christmas Birthday Card

Stampin' Up! Christmas Quilt Bundle Birthday Card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC259 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #birthday #christmasquilt

Today's sketch was an easy one for me.  Though, I wasn't going to do the obvious "flower" image.  But as I thought about it, the Christmas Quilt Bundle has a flower image and thought it would make a good birthday card.  With that decided, in no time at all today's card came together quickly.  And look - it's not a Christmas card.  I did need to find an appropriate greeting, and Big on Birthdays was the perfect fit (I don't reach for that stamp set nearly enough)!  

How'd She DO That tips for Quilted Christmas Birthday Card:

  1. Stamps: Christmas Quilt, Big on Birthdays (greeting)
  2. Paper:
    • Garden Green (11" x 4-1/4" card base) 
    • Soft Sky (3-3/8" x 2-1/2")
    • Whisper White (3/8" x 4" and scrap for flower)
    • Quilted Christmas Designer Series Paper Stack (3-1/4" x 2-3/8")
  3. Ink: Soft Sky, Garden Green
  4. Other:  Big Shot, Quilt Builder Framelits Dies, Clear Faceted Gems, Glue Dots
  5. Shopping Links:  See below for a full supply list with links to shop online

Stampin' Up! Christmas Quilt Bundle Birthday Card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC259 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #birthday #christmasquilt

I've been running out of birthday cards, so I think I'll make up a few of these.  I've lovin' that there are more options than just holiday cards for the Christmas Quilt Bundle.  Be sure to add to your shopping today, as the Christmas Quilt Bundle is retiring soon!

Enjoy~Dawn O

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #251: Coloring Spooky Night Designer Series Paper

It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge.  This week we're having a "Sketch Pad" challenge.  

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC251 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy

In sticking with the Spooky Night Suite Week, I selected a fun holiday catalog stamp set called Festive Phrases and paired it with the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper (DSP).

Add color to Stampin' Up! Spooky Night Designer Series Paper #dostamping #stampinup #spookynight #diy #cardmaking #halloween

But first - I played around with the DSP.  I wanted it to have more color, specifically Lemon Lime Twist.  So I grabbed a Sponge Dauber and colored in all of the Very Vanilla "dots", by basically swiped ink over the whole piece.  I loved the way it turned out...exactly how I envisioned it.  That doesn't always happen.  See how I used it...

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #247: Merry Patterns Sketch

It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge.  This week we're having a "Sketch Pad" challenge.    

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC247 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy

For today's card I reached for the exclusive Merry Patterns stamp set.  It had just arrived and I was itchin' to play with it.   It's a free stamp set during September & October for either a $300 order or party (see the Merry Patterns promotion details & stamp set below).

Initially I was having trouble with the sketch.  I think I may have cut my DSP too narrow and I wasn't happy with the result.  But I wasn't going to cut up more DSP (if you know what I mean - it was a make it work moment!)  

So I starting moving pieces of paper around and it came together with the center of the card being inspired by the sketch, then added to a card base.  In the end...I really like the way it turned out, and I think I kept the spirit of the sketch.

Merry Patterns Candle card

  1. Adhere 4 x 2" piece of Christmas Around The World Designer Series Paper to 4-1/4" x 3-1/4" Basic Black cardstock.  They adhere to folded 11" x 4-1/4" Real Red card base.
  2. Stamp greeting (from Merry Patterns stamp set) with black ink.
  3. Create Garden Green banner - cut each end of 1" x 5-1/2" strip with Triple Banner Punch.  Adhere to card front.
  4. Stamp candle image with Archival Basic Black ink on Watercolor paper.  Die cut with largest oval size from Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  Use Aqua Painter to color image as follows:
    1. Real Red = candles
    2. Smokey Slate = to add a little depth to the candle edges (use a very light touch)
    3. Daffodil Delight = flames (used stamp image first, then added more color with Aqua Painter).  Also continue to blend color above candles
    4. Garden Green = pine bough.  I watered down the paper a little first.  Then stamped many boughs.  They blended on their own.  When dry - I added more stamped boughs and blends the edges upwards along the sides of the candles
    5. Once dry - adhere to card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  5. Color Basic Pearl Jewels with red Sharpie Marker and attach to card.

Truth be told...at first I was not very happy with my watercoloring results.  I'm not the best at it - it's still very much a practice for me.  But after taking a little break (read...walk away), I came back with fresh eyes and I thought, "that's not looking as bad as I thought."  I have to do that sometimes...walk away.  Does that happen to you?

Between Stampin' Up!'s Annual Catalog and the new Holiday Catalog, if you have a big wish List ($300 or more)...you could get the Merry Patterns stamp set for free!  Or get your friends together and I can help you with party orders.

Enjoy~Dawn O
