Stampin' Blends

Father's Day: Good Dad, Good Man

With Father's Day quickly approaching, I thought I'd share for the Dad's in your life, using the A Good Man stamp set.

  • Show the good men in your life how much you appreciate them with a handmade, heartfelt card or gift you make using the A Good Man Stamp Set.
  • Great for Father’s Day, birthdays, or any day you want to recognize and celebrate your men.

149270 A Good Man by Stampin' Up! | Shop: http://bit.ly/shopwithdawn

As you can see, A Good Man stamp set includes several sentiments, including the one I'm using today.  My eye was drawn to it right away.  It's a perfect sentiment for Father's Day.

  • Stamps: A Good Man

Stampin' Blends Coloring Tips:

  • For today's card, I did a little coloring practice before I decided on which look I preferred the most.
  • I preferred to start with the dark Stampin' Blend, then come in with the light Stampin' Blend coloring/blending over the dark then over the rest of the area I wanted to color.  I purposely left a small white are on the shirts.  (So artistic of me...I even surprised myself).
  • I was really happy with the results - especially for someone that is not very good at watercoloring.  The Stampin' Blends markers make me look like I know what I'm doing (ha!)
  • So if you're still new to Stampin' Blends Markers, then do a little practicing first.

Use Stampin' Blends with A Good Man cards from Stampin' Up! shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup #agoodman #masculinecards #cardmaking #stampinblends

Here's some additional A Good Man cards from the 2019-2020 Stampin' Up! catalog.  More great examples for coloring with Stampin' Blends!

If you're looking to update your masculine stamp set collection, then A Good Man would be the perfect addition.   Add it to your shopping bag today and get a few Stampin' Blends as well.

Enjoy~Dawn O

Two Fable Friends Cards: Not Just For Easter!

Last week I shared a few Easter cards using the Fable Friends stamp set

But did you know...Fable Friends Cling Stamp Set [148670] is not just for Easter.  Who can resist these cute animals for baby, friends and spring projects too?  Check out the darling baby and friend cards below...

Stampin' Up! Fable Friends cards shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #babycards

How'd She DO That? tips for Darling Baby card:

  • Stamps: Fable Friends
    Paper:
    • Petal Pink (5 1/2" x 8 1/2" card base)
    • Soft Seafoam (5/8" x 4-1/4" for sentiment)
    • Thick Whisper White (scrap for bunny)
    • Twinkle Twinke Designer Series Paper (1-1/4" x 5" stripe, 1/2" x 4-7/8" dots)
  • Ink: Gray Granite, Tuxedo Black Memento-bunny

Stampin' Up! Fable Friends cards shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #babycards

The bunny is so cute and hard to resist his sweet face!


Use Stampin' Up! Catalogs for inspiration!

If you found the bunny card a little bit familiar, that is because it was inspired by the layout from the kangaroo card on page 26 of the Annual Catalog.   Even though the original sample is from the Animal Exhibition Suite, it works perfectly with the adorable bunny image, don't you think? 

So don't forget, Stampin' Up! catalogs make for a great resource to use when you are feeling "stuck" on a layout.

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. 

Texture Impressions Stamping card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #stampingtechniques

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.

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

After creating my background, I thought the Sale-a-Bration Home to Roost would make a perfect fit!  This fabulous set is available FREE with a $50 order - until March 31st.   Get yours today!

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

    • Pool Party (3" x 4") 
    • Whisper White (2-3/4" x 3-3/4", scraps for die cutting)

  • 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

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)

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! 

Enjoy~Dawn O
