Stamping with the STARS #373: Retiform Technique Christmas Season

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Stamping with the STARS Inspiration Hop #DOswts373.  This week we're sharing a stamping technique called Retiform.

Stamping with the Stars #DOswts373 Retiform Technique Inspiration #dostamperSTARS #dostampinup #stampinup

 The word Retiform means (I had to look it up): 

  1. having the form of or resembling a net
  2. composed of crossing lines and an intervening spaces

This was definitely a challenge for my STARS Team (and myself).  But after a couple of tries, we all got it.  For me, I tried two different ways of creating the intersecting sections and found one way much easier to do.  I will make a video on how to do it and will share it soon.

Here's my Christmas Season Retiform Technique card...

How'd She DO That? Painted Christmas Retiform card

  • Stamps:  Christmas Season, Christmas to Remember
  • Paper:
    • Evening Evergreen (5-1/2" x 8-1/2" card base)  
    • Basic White (4" x 5-1/4" and scrap for sentiment)
  • Ink:  Evening Evergreen, Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler
  • Other:  Sponge Daubers, Simply Elegant Trim, Stampin' Seal, Stampin' Dimensionals & Sticky Notes for masking

Now that I have the Retiform Stamping Technique "mastered" - I will definitely be doing it again.  Give it a try - you'll feel like an artist.  My husband thought I "air-sprayed" the lines.   They were sponged, using a sponge dauber and straight-edge paper for "masking".

The Christmas Season & Christmas to Remember stamps are from the Painted Christmas Suite Collection.  A fabulous suite that is perfect for the holiday season.  Add it to your shopping cart today.

The other day I did a technique demonstration for my STARS Team, on our private Facebook group, using the Snowflake Wishes stamp set.  So...as long as it was out, that's what I'm featuring today.  

Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes card by Dawn Olchefske Stamping with the STARS sketch challenge #DOswts372 #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #DOstamperSTARS p

I have to admit, I got this set (along with the So Many Snowflakes Dies) when it was in last year's Holiday Catalog.  But I never got around to using it.  Now that I have, I can see myself reaching for it lot!  I also like the sketch too...give it a try.

  • Paper:
    • Misty Moonlight (5-1/2" x 8-1/2" card base)  
    • Basic White (3/4" x 3-5/8" for Lovely Labels Pick a Punch, 4" x 5-1/4" for inside)
    • Snowy White Velvet Sheets (scraps or 2 snowflake die cuts)
    • Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper (2-3/4" 3-3/4" blue trees, 3-1/4" x 4-1/4" blue sky)

DOstamping Tips:  

  • The search for coordinating Designer Series Paper (DSP) took me into the Annual Catalog for the Beauty of the Earth.  This great DSP has patterns for all seasons!
  • For the sentiment, use the Take Your Pick tool to create a hole for the ribbon to tie onto.
  • Rhinestone Basic Jewels are the perfect touch for the center of the Snowy White Velvet die cut snowflakes.
  • Bring the outside in...stamp a couple of snowflakes (stamped off for a softer look).

Stamping with the STARS #371: Triple Time Stamping with Sale-a-Bration Delicate Dahlias

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Stamping with the STARS Inspiration Hop #DOswts371.  With only a few days left of Sale-a-bration, that is our theme this week.

Triple Time Stamping using FREE Sale-a-Bration Delicate Dahlias stamp set card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #stampinup #stampingtechniques-ph

This Triple Time Stamping card, featuring the Sale-a-Bration Delicate Dahlias stamp set, was one of the cards for my DOstamping@Home Club last month.  This is an every other month club, perfect for any stamper - beginner or experienced!  

 DOstamping Dahlia Triple Time Stamping card:

  • Stamps: Delicate Dahlias (FREE Sale-a-Bration $100 level choice)
  • Paper:
    • Misty Moonlight (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base; 2-1/4" x 3-1/2")
    • Basic White (2" x 3-1/4", 3" x 4-1/4", two of 4" x 5-1/4"- one for inside )
    • Granny Apple Green (3-1/4" x 4-1/2")
  • Ink: Misty Moonlight, Granny Apple Green
  • Other: Playing with Patterns Resin Dots, Stampin' Seal & Stampin' Dimensionals

Triple Time Stamping using FREE Sale-a-Bration Delicate Dahlias stamp set card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #stampinup #stampingtechniques-f

How'd She DO That?:

  • Fold card base in half and adhere one of the 4" x 5-1/4" white pieces inside the card.
  • Take the remaining white pieces and with a small about of "temporary" adhesive in the center area, layer smallest to the largest pieces together.  TIP:  use Stampin' Seal for adhesive and just pressed on it with your finger until it looses some of it's tackiness.  You'll need to be able pull all 3 pieces apart after stamping.
  • Stamp over all three pieces at the same time:
    • Stamp sentiment on the small top panel.    
    • Stamp large solid flower image by inking with Misty Moonlight, stamp off on scrap paper, then stamp onto the 3 layers.  TIP:  I recommend adding extra pressure with your palm to the areas of the stamp that fall into a "seam" area - to get more ink onto it.  When you pull the stamp up, you'll notice that there will be white space in those areas just off the panel edges.  That's OK, the color layers will cover them.
    • Stamp solid and detailed leaf images with Granny Apple Green.
  • Gently pull all three layers apart and adhere to coordinating colored mats (Misty Moonlight and Granny Apple Green).  Adhere the 2 largest panels to the card front.  
  • Wrap ribbon around smallest panel and tie in a bow.  Adhere to card with  Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Attach dots as desired
  • Check out one of my older videos (from 2012) that demonstrates the Triple Time Stamping Technique.

I know a lot of you had the FREE Delicate Dahlias stamp set on your wish list.  Don't forget to place your $100 or more order, so you don't miss out on selecting it as your FREE Sale-a-Bration choice.  It ends September 30, just 5 more days!

DOstamping Tips:  (updated 9/13)

  • For the tag, I used one of the Seasonal Label Dies, along with the "hole" die.   
  • For the small pinecones, use Soft Suede ink.  Stamp off for the "solid" image.
  • For the pine sprig, use Soft Succulent.  Stamp off first.
  • This can could be easily duplicatable for a holiday card!

Stamping with the Stars #DOswts369 Holiday Catalog Inspiration #dostamperSTARS #dostampinup #stampinup

Today's Holiday Catalog theme gave me a chance to play with the Painted Christmas Suite of products.  It was one of the first holiday products I ordered.  And...I'm in love!

As a Minnesota girl, I was immediately drawn towards the pinecones.  So I chose the two patterns from the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper that feature pinecones.  I figured, they had to go together someone how.  See what I came up with...

Stampin’ Up! Blackberry Beauty Specialty Designer Series Paper card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #DOswts368 #DOstamperSTARS-cu

DOstamping Tips:

  • For the focal point, start with a 3-1/2" square of paper (see cutting suggestion below).  I adhered the Blackberry Beauty Specialty Designer Series Paper to the same size of Very Vanilla - to give it more stability.
  • Cut 3/4" strips from each end (total of two strips), then cut rest into 1" strips (total of 2 strips). 
  • Adhere strips to FREE Sale-a-Bration Be Dazzling Specialty Paper with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Start with the small "end" strips and fill in with the middle area with the larger strips.
  • I'm in need of several "thinking of you" cards and the sentiment from the Very Versailles stamp set is just right.
  • The new Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backers Dots are the perfect finishing touch!

Stampin’ Up! Bloom Where You’re Planted Suite card byDawn Olchefske  #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #DOswts367 #DOstamperSTARS-cu

DOstamping Tips:

  • I chose three different "gray" patterns to resemble a tiled background and I love the look of it!
  • Arrange the nine 1"squares onto the Smoky Slate square.
  • For adhering, I like to start in the lower corner.  Then adhere the opposite corner, then middle.  Continue around the outside edges, then finish with the center piece.

The Bloom Where You're Planted is part of the current Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper Promotion.  Add it to your shopping cart today at 15% off!

Stamping with the STARS #366: Sketch with Bloom Where You're Planted

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Stamping with the STARS Inspiration Hop #DOswts366.  This week we're sharing a sketch.

Stamping with the Stars #DOswts366 Sketch Inspiration #dostamperSTARS #dostampinup #stampinup
366-Sketch
I created today's sketch.  It's a copy of a layout I used on another card that I haven't shared yet, but will soon.     

Stampin’ Up! Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper sketch card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #DOswts366 #dostamperstars-P

I reached for the Bloom Where You're Planted Suite products.  It's currently my favorite suite that I'm playing with.  Love the colors, images and sentiment/fonts.

How'd She DO That? Bloom Where You're Planted sketch card:

  • Stamps/Bundle: Plentiful Plants
  • Paper:
  • Ink:  Just Jade, Cinnamon Cider 
  • Other:  Just Jade & Gold 3/8" Braided Ribbon, Genial Gems, Stampin' Seal

Stampin’ Up! Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper sketch card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #DOswts366 #dostamperstars-CU

DOstamping Tips:

  • To create a fuller leafy image:  Ink image with Just Jade ink and stamp once.  Then without re-inking, turn image slightly and stamp again.  Stamp a third time without re-inking, turning image in the other direction.
  • How to select just the right color card base?  For this card, I tried three different colors, Just Jade (which seemed too dark), Cinnamon Cider (which I was leaning towards), and then landed on Smoky Slate - which felt just right.  I call that the "Goldilocks" feel.  You know, that feeling when something doesn't feel quite right - you change the color or size and voila - now it works!

The Bloom Where You're Planted is part of the current Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper Promotion.  Add it to your shopping card now at 15% off!

Thank you for shopping with me!
