Stamping with the STARS #309: Texture Folder Stamping Inspiration

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts309...Texture Folder Stamping Inspiration!

309

Here's my interpretation using the Tin Tile Dynamic Texture Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF)...

Sale-a-bration Home to Roost card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting 

How'd She DO That? tips for Texture Folder Stamping:

  • Select a Texture Impressions Emboss Folding 
  • Open the folder and on inside, front (the side with Sizzix & Stampin' Up!)...add ink to the folder.  You can use direct to folder with an inkpad, or sponge daubers to add different colors.  I used both.  I swiped the Mango Melody ink pad across the folder.  Then used a Sponge Dauber to add Poppy Parade ink in selected areas.
  • Use a Stampin' Spritzer to spray with water. 
  • Then press the cardstock onto the folder.  For a more of a watercolor look, "dance" your fingers across the paper.  For a more even look press down on the entire paper.
  • Optionally - skip the water - for more of a printed look.
  • When using water, use watercolor paper, Whisper White Thick or (what I prefer is) Shimmery White Paper.

When using the instructions above - using the inside/front of the folder.  This is what kind of impression you'll get.  However, for me...it was a little to busy for what I was looking for (will use it another time).  

Instead, I tried it on the opposite of the folder and I got a different pattern, more of what I was looking for.  So experience with both sides of Texture Impressions Embossing Folders.  You'll never know what you'll get.

Best Catch for the Men in Your Life!

Before I get to today's card, here's an update on my product shares:

ALL paid reservations for product shares were mailed today.  There was one backorder item, the Early Bird Bonus Memories & More Happiness Blooms sampler (that's a mouthful).  If your package doesn't include it, there should be a note that explains that your bonus will ship separately sometime early February (they are currently on backorder until Jan 31st)

I will be doing one last round (#2).  If you want to get in on it, you must place your reservation & pay by Jan 23.  Offerings can be found on my product share page.

 


Today's card is for the Man in Your Life!  

As soon as I saw pg 44 of 2019 Occasions Catalog, I knew I had to have everything on that page!  Best Catch Bundle and Crackle Paint:

Why?  Because my hubby loves to fish.  He does more traditional fishing like walleye, bass, perch, northerns, etc, but he can appreciate fly fishing. 

He loved the card and was impressed with my coloring skills (which he thought had improved).  I didn't tell him that was because I used Stampin' Blends.  Truly, they make you feel like an artist (at least for me).  Which is why I love my Stampin' Blends!

Stampin' Up! new Catch of the Day Bundle card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #masculinecards #birthdaycards

How'd She DO That? tips for Best Catch card:

  • Paper:
    • Basic Gray (11" x 4-1/4" card base)  
    • Pool Party (3" x 4") 
    • Whisper White (2-3/4" x 3-3/4", scraps for die cutting)
  • Ink:  Tuxedo Black Memento, Basic Gray (for background stamp)
  • Stampin' Blends:  
    • fish: Dark Flirty Flamingo, Pool Party Combo, Light Coral Calypso, Light Smoky, Light Black & Light Crumb Cake
    • lure: Coral Calypso Combo, Dark Pool Party, Light Suede, Dark Crumb Cake
  • Shopping Links:  See below for a full supply list with links to shop online

Stampin' Up! new Catch of the Day Bundle card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #masculinecards #birthdaycards

Cool stuff:

  • For coloring options, I googled "trout" and "fly fishing lures" and found LOTS of great inspiration.
  • You can't see it in the photo, but I added Clear Wink of Stella to the "pink" area of the fish, for even more coolness!
  • I felt like the card needed a little something, so that's when I decided to add a small amount Silver Metallic Thread to the lure (my hubby thought I was a genius for that!).
  • I was delightfully surprised to discover that a couple of the fish's fins lift up...what fun!  (see below)

Retiring: Beautiful Baubles

Today I'm sharing a richly colorful Christmas card using the soon-to-be-retired Beautiful Baubles stamp set.

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Baubles card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #howdshedothat #beautifulbaubles

Dawn's Tips:

  • Stamp the bauble image in the middle of the paper and then stamp to the left and right of it.
  • Use the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch to create the scallop edging.

As I mentioned, the Beautiful  Baubles stamp set is retiring.  There are matching dies available and a bundle too!

Be sure to add them to your shopping bag before they are gone for good!

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #298: Country Home Fun Fold Card

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

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC298 Product Spotlight #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy

If you're looking for stamp sets that are perfect for coloring with Stampin' Blends, the 2018 Holiday Catalog is filled with lots of choices!  One of them being, the Country Home stamp set, which at first look, I didn't get.  I know, I know...what was I thinking? 

After seeing my DOstamperSTARS stamping community's creations, I broke down and got it.  And...I'm so glad I did. The images are perfect for Stampin' Blends.

Double Dutch Door Fun Fold Card by Dawn Olchefske, uses Stampin' Up!  Country Home, Tin Tile Texture Folder & Stampin' Blends for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC298 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #stampinblends, #countryhome

This is one of the cards I offered at my Local Stamping Club Class this week (I have a TO GO option too).  It was a hit, as it featured the Double Dutch Door Fun Fold and the Stampin' Blends

The card "style" was shared with me by my friend & fellow demonstrator, Julie Davison (I love her work!),. Let's dive into this fun fold card.  

How'd She DO That? tips for Double Dutch Door Fun Fold card:

Everyone had so much fun coloring this Country Home image with Stampin' Blends.  I heard many comments on how soothing it was to color with them.  For me, my favorite thing about Stampin' Blends is...they make me feel like an artist.  Here's the list of what was used.

  • Mango Melody Combo Pack
  • Mint Macaron Combo Pack
  • Old Olive Combo Pack
  • Blackberry Bliss Combo Pack
  • Dark Crumb Cake
  • Dark Soft Suede

Stampin' Blends are not just for paper.  You can also color our Basic Pearls and Rhinestone Jewels (among other surfaces), which were colored with the Dark Blackberry Bliss Stampin' Blend Marker.

Be sure to check out all of the products from the Country Lane Suite and add them to your shopping bag today!

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #297: Cauldron Bubble Bundle

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

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC297 Home Sweet Home #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy

For me, the obvious choice for this week's inspiration was to use the new Toil & Trouble Suite products.  They are so much fun to play with.  In fact, I have several more ideas to share with you in the coming days!
 

Stampin' Up! Cauldron Bubble Bundle card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC297 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #stampinblends #halloweencards

    • Gorgeous Grape (11" x 4-1/4" card base)

Stampin' Up! Cauldron Bubble Bundle card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC297 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #stampinblends #halloweencards

Before Stampin' Blends, I was not much for coloring.  Now look at me...I look like an artist.  That's my favorite thing about Stampin' Blends!

Stampin' Up! Cauldron Bubble Bundle card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC297 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #stampinblends #halloweencards

The photo didn't pick it up at all, but I have to mention it.  My grandson, Max applied Wink of Stella Glitter to the stars on the hat.  In addition, he punched all of the 2" circles and helped with Stampin' Dimensionals.  He hasn't crafted with me in awhile and I was excited to have him offer to help - yay...so much fun!

I'm lovin' these little spider trinkets and had to use one on this card.  I found an easy way to attach them and tie on the twine.

Spider Trinket Tip:  

  • attach Spider Trinket on witch hat with glue dots
  • now that the spider is "anchored" it's much easier to thread the twine through the jump ring and tie in a bow. 
  • secure bow with a glue dot.

Have a little fun this Halloween with the Toil & Trouble Suite of products.  Add them to your shopping bag today! 

Enjoy~Dawn O
