Blossoming Basket Bundle and Stampin' Blends Update

Today I'm sharing one of my favorite Sale-a-Bration choices (with a $100 order), the Blossoming Basket Bundle.  We made this card last night at my local Stamp Club class and it was a hit!  This card comes together quickly when you color it using Stampin' Blends.  My favorite thing about Stampin' Blends is they make me feel like an artist!

I'm lovin' Stampin' Up!'s Sale-a-Bration Blossoming Basket Bundle.  Card created by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #rubberstamping #papercrafting #blossomingbasketbundle #basketweavetexturefolder #eastercard #stampinblends

How'd She DO That tips for Blossoming Basket Bundle card:

  1. Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes, Blossoming Basket (part of Sale-a-Bration Bundle with $100 order)
  2. Paper:
    • Crumb Cake (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base, 2" x 5-1/2", scrap for tag & classic label punch)
    • Whisper White (3-3/8" x 3-3/8")
    • Calypso Coral (3-1/2" x 3-1/2")
  3. Ink: Tuxedo Black Memento 
  4. Stampin' Blends:  Coral Calypso-combo, Old Olive-combo, Daffodil Delight-light, Crumb Cake-combo
  5. Other:  Big Shot, Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF (par of Sale-a-Bration Bundle with $100 order), Classic Label Punch, Linen Thread, Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals
  6. Tip:
    • I typically stamp my greeting last and sometimes it get a little crooked.  So if you're like me, try stamping it on a scrap and punching out with a punch. 
    • The Classic Label Punch works great for most of the greetings in the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set!
  7. Shopping Links:  See below for a full supply list with links to shop online

 

I'm lovin' Stampin' Up!'s Sale-a-Bration Blossoming Basket Bundle.  Card created by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #rubberstamping #papercrafting #blossomingbasketbundle #basketweavetexturefolder #eastercard #stampinblends

Ooh - that Basket Weave Dynamic Texture Impressions Embossing Folder is awesome, a must-have!  You'll want it to create authentic-looking weaved texture for your projects.

And the Blossoming Basket stamp set is just beautiful.  What a great way to send heartfelt thoughts with a card full of lovely flowers you colored yourself. 

I'm lovin' Stampin' Up!'s Sale-a-Bration Blossoming Basket Bundle.  Card created by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #rubberstamping #papercrafting #blossomingbasketbundle #basketweavetexturefolder #eastercard #stampinblends

If you read the fine-print in the Sale-a-Bration Relase #2 flyer, you already know the Basket Weave Dynamic Texture Impressions Embossing Folder will be in the next annual catalog.  However, the beautiful Blossoming Basket stamp set will not.  They do go together perfectly.  So if you've had your eye on the Blossoming Basket Bundle for your free Sale-a-Bration item, be sure to place your $100 or more order soon before the bundle is gone - ends March 31st

Enjoy~Dawn O

 


Update on Stampin' Blends 

450-Stampin'-Blends-markers

From Stampin' Up!

We are experiencing challenges in maintaining an adequate supply of Stampin’ Blends.  Extremely long lead times with our supplier, combined with an unexpected increase in demand, has caused many of our current 27-color offering to go on backorder.

At this time, we’ve had to make the difficult decision to make our entire Stampin’ Blends product line (temporarily) unorderable until approximately the end of May. This is not a decision we came to lightly; but with backorders only likely to get worse in the coming weeks, it is in everyone's best interest—to temporarily make them unavailable.  This decision is purely due to the rise in demand and the complications we face with our supplier for this particular product line.

Stampin’ Blends will be made unorderable beginning this Friday, March 23, noon (MT).  We will keep you posted on the availability of Stampin’ Blends as we learn more.

If you liked to get your order in prior to them become temporarily unorderable, be sure to shop prior to noon on Friday. 

You'll find them in the online store here: Stampin' Blends

Our theme for this month is: Stampin' Up! 2018 Occasions or Sale-a-Bration Products

I selected the Heart Happiness stamp set (in keeping with my "Love is in the Air" week theme)

Heart Happiness Love Notes

Stampin' Up! Heart Happiness Love Notes & Mini Pizza Box by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup #minipizzabox #hearthappiness #valetinesdaycards #diy #rubberstamping #cardmaking #papercrafting
These darling little 3" x 3" cards (3" x 6" folded in half) turned out so cute.  With using one of the small hearts from the Heart Happiness stamp set, I had a lot of fun experimenting with different colors, shapes and sayings to create different shapes.  I found the greetings from the Lovely Friends stamp set had the perfect little sentiments. 

With just a few colors, Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker and Basic Rhinestone Jewels (colored with black Sharpie Marker), I sure you could come up with even more designs (think flowers, maybe a frog, insects and more) - what fun!

Stampin' Up! Heart Happiness Love Notes & Mini Pizza Box by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup #minipizzabox #hearthappiness #valetinesdaycards #diy #rubberstamping #cardmaking #papercrafting

Not only will you have fun creating Heart Happiness Love Notes, but you'll have fun giving them away.  Leave them on your kids (or hubby) pillow or in their lunchboxes for a special little message from you!


Enjoy~Dawn O

March Paper Pumpkin non-Easter ideas, Free Gift with April

Like I mentioned on Monday, I have a couple more Bunny Buddies Paper Pumpkin ideas for you.  I think you're gonna enjoy them!  These two cards feature the non-Easter greetings from the kit, giving it more versatility. Check out the adorable Dog Panel Card.  

Alternate ideas for Bunny Buddies March 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit created by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  

Why do I call it a panel card?  Because the mini card is attached to just a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" panel.  The mini card opens, but not the panel.  Hence, Panel Card!  Now that we're all on the same page, on to the card itself...

Dog Panel Card

  1. Create "mini card" with 6-1/2" x 2-3/4" Basic Gray cardstock, score in half at 3-1/4".
  2. Cut one of the peach note cards in half.  Using the top half of the card, trim the sides down to 2-1/2" wide (final piece will measure 3" x 2-1/2").  Stamp greeting as shown with ink from kit.  Adhere to "mini card".
  3.  Wrap 14" of peach twine (from kit) around front of mini card and tie in a bow.  
  4. Adhere mini card to 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" piece of Smoky Slate cardstock.
  5. Create "dog"
    1. Trim 1/2" off the top of a large bunny ear sticker.  Than put back on the sticker sheet for stamping.
    2. Stamp face using ink from kit.  (note:  add a little pressure when stamping the "nose/mouth" image, so the ink goes into the scored line)
    3. Remove from sticker sheet and adhere to mini card front with Stampin' Dimensionals...I used a lot of them!
    4. For ears:  cut Smoky Slate cardstock with 3/4" Circle Punch.  Trim in half and adhere both pieces with glue dots.
  6. Trim off a 2-1/2" x 1/4" piece from the leftover peach card.  Adhere to 3" x 2-1/2" piece of Very Vanilla, then adhere to inside "mini card".
  7. Cut Peekaboo Peach hearts using Confetti Hearts Border Punch.  Adhere with fine top glue pen or glue dots.

Happy Spring Note Card

  1.  On 4-7/8" x 3-3/8" piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp bunny ear image 5 times with Dapper Denim ink to create one flower.  Use a blender pen to pull and blend the ink from the "inside petal".  You may want to do this after stamping each petal (before the ink dries).  Create as many flowers as can fit on the panel and continue to blend as you go.
  2. Cut Dapper Denim cardstock flower centers with 1/2" Circle Punch.  Adhere with Stampin' Dimensional.  Use Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to add shimmer!
  3. Stamp greeting on banner from the kit.  Adhere to panel.  Attache a piece of blue twine from the kit with a stapler, then tie in a bow.
  4. Adhere completed panel to a folded Note Card (& envelopes)

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #225: Jar of Love & That's the Tag Bundles!

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

DOSstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #225-Home Sweet Home

This week's photo inspiration caught my fancy with it's floral treat cups.  I think the Jar of Love Bundle floral card captured that feeling.  That a look...

The "happy birthday" tag is the perfect touch for the card, don't you think?
