Bridge Fun Fold card using Stampin' Up! Above the Clouds Bundle.  Card by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the Stars #DOswts316 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting, #funfold

Bridge cards are a fun fold style of card, named for the piece that "bridges the two sides together.  It's surprisingly easy to make and fun to decorate.

How'd She DO That? Above the Clouds Bridge card:

  • Bundle:  Above the Clouds Bundle (save 10% on stamp set and matching Hot Air Balloon Punch),
  • Paper:
    • Whisper White Thick (4-1/4" x 8" card base, score at  1-1/4" & 2-1/2" from each end)
    • Whisper White Thick (scraps for punching)
    • Coastal Cabana (5-1/2" x 1-1/4")
    • Designer Series Paper ( 1-1/8"  x 4-1/4 strips - two of blue and two of "colored stripes", 5-1/2" x 1-1/8")  )
  • Ink: Coastal Cabana, Calypso Coral, Pacific Point, Basic Gray
  • Other:  1-1/2" Circle Punch, SNAIL, Mini Stampin' Dimensionals and Tear & Tape.

DOstamping Tips:

  • Start with the card base (largest piece).  Complete the scoring, folding, stamping and decorating.
  • Then create and decorate the "bridge" piece.
  • Note:  For the "balloons solid shape" - stamp off the Coastal Cabana balloon image once.  Stamp-off the Calypso Coral balloon twice.
  • I recommend using Tear & Tape to adhere the "bridge" to the card base  (on the end panels only).
  • To see a video demonstration of  making a Bridge Fun Fold card, be sure to check out my How'd She DO That? video from last year.

Everything is Rosy Product Medley Day 2: #DOswts314 Collar Fold

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts314.  This week we're showcasing Collar Fun Fold cards! 

Stamping with the STARS Collar Fun Fold inspiration hop #DOswts314 #dostamperstars #papercrafting #stamping #cardmaking #funfolds Everything is Rosy Product Medley Collar Fun Fold card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup  #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting, #DOswts314 #funfold #dostamperstars

I knew right away I would be using the Everything is Rosy Product Medley for today's challenge. 

Immediately I was drawn to the light pink paper with small flower bunches.  It reminded of the dresses I used to put my daughters in when they were little.  I thought it might be fun to decorate the collar area to give the impression of a dress.

How'd She DO That? Everything is Rosy Collar Fun Fold card:

  • Product Medley: Everything is Rosy (stamp set, dies, DSP, mirror embellishments)
  • Paper:
    • Balmy Blue (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base) 
    • Whisper White (scraps for stamping & die cutting)
    • Designer Series Paper (4" x 5-1/4")
  • Ink: Night of Navy, Melon  Mambo
  • Other:  Big Shot, Pearlized Doilies & Stampin' Dimensionals

Everything is Rosy Product Medley Collar Fun Fold card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup  #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting, #DOswts314 #funfold #dostamperstars

Collar Fun Fold Tips:

  • At the middle of a long edge of 4" x 5-1/4" DSP, use scissors to cut in towards center about 2"  (experiment on scrap paper as needed)
  • Fold each side away from the cut edge.  I kept about a 3/4" edge at the top of each side (again, experiment as needed)
  • Adhere to folded card base, and stamp greeting.
  • Cut a doily in half, adhere under each "flap".  Then adhere each flap down with a Stampin' Dimensional.
  • Decorate with flower die cuts

DOstamping Tips:

  • On Whisper White cardstock, stamp large flower with Melon Mambo and large leaf with Night of Navy.
  • Ink smaller flower with Melon Mambo, stamp off on scratch paper, then onto Whisper White.  Repeat.  Stamp small dots with Night of Night.
  • Die cut all images with matching shapes.  
  • Arrange around collar and adhere with Stampin' Dimensionals and glue dots.
  • Finish off with mirror embellishment

I had so much fun with the Collar Fun Fold.  I know I'll be trying it again.  Have fun creating your own Collar Fun Fold cards and playing with the Everything is Rosy Product Medley!

Enjoy~Dawn O

Stamping with the STARS #312: Recessed Panel Card Inspiration

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts312.  This week we're having fun with Recessed Panel cards!

Stamping with the STARS Recessed Panel inspiration hop #DOswts312 #dostamperstars #papercrafting #stamping #cardmaking Needlepoint Nook Suite Recessed Panel card created by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #DOswts312

I've seen Recessed Panel cards around for years, but have never made one.  If you search for them, you'll find samples of horizontal, vertical and diagonal versions.  I chose the diagonal version, as I like the visual interest.   I got out the Needlepoint Nook Suite of products and started to play!

DOstamping Needlepoint Recessed card supplies:

  • Whisper White Thick (11" x 4-1/4" card base) 
  • Whisper White (5-1/2" x 4-1/4" and scrap for punch)
  • Old Olive (5-1/2" x 4-1/4")
  • Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper (3" x 6")
  • Rich Razzleberry (scrap for punch)

Needlepoint Nook Suite Recessed Panel card created by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #DOswts312

How'd She DO That? Recessed Panel Instructions:

  • On folded card base, adhere Designer Series Paper at a diagonal.  Align it at the bottom right corner, then align the opposite corner with the left edge of the card - see above.  (You could use a full panel of Designer Series Paper.  However, if you want your DSP to go farther, use a 3" x 6" piece.)
  • Cut both white and olive 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" panels at the same time.
    • Near the top left side, make a mark at 3/4" & 1-1/8".  On the right side, make a mark at 3" down from the top.
    • For top "half" - start at 3/4" mark on the left edge and cut diagonally over to 3" mark on the right edge.  Trim off 1/8" from top edge of white panel.
    • For bottom "half" - start at 1-1/8" mark on the left edge and cut diagonally down to the bottom right corner of the panels.  Trim off 1/8" from bottom edge of white panel.
    • Adhere white and olive panels together
  • Optional:  before adhering cut panels to card, add texture.
  • Adhere panels to card with Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Decorate as desired

Needlepoint Nook Suite Recessed Panel card created by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #DOswts312

Take a Closer Look:

  • Look at all of the fun "stitching" on the lower panel and the greeting label.  I was giddy to discover how fabulous it looks.  Both are from the Needlepoint Elements Framelits Dies.
  • The Pretty Label Punch is perfect to cut the greeting label.
  • The finishing touch is the Needlepoint Nook Mini Buttons and Old Olive Linen Thread.

Not sure why I waited so long to make a Recessed Panel card, it was fun to make.  Whether you make your panel vertical, horizontal or diagonal (like mine), I'm sure you'll have fun too!  Give it a try.

Enjoy~Dawn O

Stamping with the STARS #311: Spotlighting Technique Inspiration

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts311.  This week we're having fun with the Spotlighting Technique!

DOstamping with the STARS, Spotlighting Technique Inspiration Hop #DOswts311 #dostamperSTARS #stampinupSpotlighting Technique using Dandelion Wishes byStampin' Up!, created by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #DOswts311

OK, I have to admit it.  When I was going through my stamp sets to select just the right image for the Spotlighting Technique, I did not even consider the Dandelion Wishes set.  But for some reason it "spoke to me" and  jumped into my hands.  So I went with it.  I'm glad I did, as I'm happy with the results.

How'd She DO That? Dandelion Wishes card:

  • Whisper White Thick (11" x 4-1/4" card base) 
  • Whisper White (4" x 3" and scrap)
  • Night of Navy (4-1/2" x 3-1/2" and scrap)

Spotlighting Technique using Dandelion Wishes byStampin' Up!, created by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #DOswts311

Spotlighting Technique Instructions:

  • Select a stamp set to use ("outline images" work nicely for this technique)
    • I used Dandelion Wishes
  • Stamp image with black or neutral ink
    • I used Night of Navy
  • Stamp again with same ink on a scrap piece
    • or a different colored ink for more "solid image" type - I used Mango Melody
  • Die cut or punch out only a PORTION of the extra stamped image into a circle (or square, etc) to become the spotlight.
    • I used the 1" Circle and 1-1/8" Scallop Circle Punches. 
  • If needed, color the spotlight piece and layer onto a colored cardstock matte.
  • Then adhere the spotlight piece over the original image, lining up both images.

Wouldn't this be a nice card to let someone know you're thinking of them?

Let your stamps "speak" to you and give the Spotlighting Technique a try!

Enjoy~Dawn O

  • For 2 pieces, fold right corners over
  • Arrange pieces on a panel that is 5-1/4" long by whatever width you desire.  Start with a left corner fold, then alternate every other piece.

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.

Stamping With The Stars Inspiration Hop: Pop up Diorama Fun Fold cards

I've heard from many of you that you've been missing the DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenges.  We took a break from them during the holidays.  Then decided we wanted to change it up. 

Stamping with the STARS inspiration hop #dostamperstars #stampinup #dostamping

I'm excited to introduce...Stamping with the STARS!   

We'll now be sharing inspiration on Saturdays, twice a month.   Not only will you be able to see creations shared on our inspiration hops, but you will also be able to see inspiration shared on Facebook via hashtags.  This week's hash tag is #DOswts308.  

NOTE:  as this is the first time we've added Facebook to our sharing, it may take a couple months to get up and running on that platform (as more STARS join in).  But we're excited to give you another option to see our creations!

This week we're sharing ideas made using the Pop-up Diorama Fun Fold card!

Stampin' Up! Sweetest Thing Pop Up Diorama Card by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #DOswts308 #funfold  #birthdaycards

There are lots of tutorials out there with different measurements.  I used the Splitcoaststampers Tutorial, that was done by my friend, Julie Davison.  See measurements, scoring and tips below.

How'd She DO That? tips for Sweetest Thing card:

  • Stamps:  Sweetest Thing
  • Paper:
    • Gorgeous Grape (10-1/2" x 5-1/2" - score at 3-1/2, 6-1/2, 7" and 10") 
    • Gorgeous Grape (1/2" x 3-1/4", 1/2" x 2-3/4")
    • Whisper White (2-3/4" x 5-1/4", scraps for labels
    • How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper (5-1/4" x 6-1/2", 2-3/4" x 1", and scraps for die cutting jars)
  • Ink: Highland Heather, Coastal Cabana
  • Other:  Big Shot, Jar of Sweets Framelits Dies, Rhinestone Basic Jewels,  Tear & Tape, and Stampin' Dimensionals

Stampin' Up! Sweetest Thing Pop Up Diorama Card by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #DOswts308 #funfold  #birthdaycards

DOstamping Tips:

  • Score card, then fold on all score lines.  Then fold flat, it into thirds, to make sure everything lines up.   
  • Then burnish the edges with a Bone Folder.
  • Before adhering together, cut opening with a punch or die shape.  (this is important to do in the right order...how do I know?  ha!)
  • To adhere, fold it flat again, into thirds, allowing the adhesive to naturally adhere where it needs to go.  
  • Burnish the adhesive area, then open it up and voila!

Did you know?

  • Some of the shapes on the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper match the shape of the coordinating Jar of Sweets Framelits Dies.
  • How sweet!!

Stampin' Up! Sweetest Thing Pop Up Diorama Card by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #DOswts308 #funfold  #birthdaycards

  • When you use a darker color for your card, you'll want to add a white layer to the left inside panel. 
  • Then there will be a place to sign your card.

I had SO much fun putting this card together.  The Pop-Up Diorama card is not only a fun fold, but it's an easy fold!  Give it a try...I think you'll like it.

In addition, the How Sweet It Is Suite of products was also fun to play with.   Add it to your shopping bag today!  

Enjoy~Dawn O
