Connie is from Wisconsin.  We met online via my blog, as I'm from Minnesota. Our friendship has continued and grown through the DOstamperSTARS private Facebook community.  Though, we did get to meet face to face at a handful of Stampin' Up! events.  She's a great papercrafting artist and is always willing to share and help out myself & other team members.  What a delight to have her on my team!  Be sure to check out her Creative Possibilities Facebook Business Page

#DOswts406 Stamping with the STARS SKETCH Inspiration #dostamperSTARS #dostampinup #stampinup

I really thought I was going to use a floral set with this sketch - as the sketch itself looks beautiful.  But I've been itchin' to use the Best Day stamp set, so decided to give that a try.

 

Stampin’ Up! Best Day Paper Piecing card by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS sketch challenge #DOswts406 #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #DOstamperSTARS #birthdaycards p

And it did not disappoint...I love the way it turned out!  I think the addition of the fun colors from the Enjoy the Journey Designer Series Paper really helped make this card pop.  The "back" side of the paper has some really fun patterns, great for birthday cards.

DOstamping Paper Piecing Tips:

  • For the Paper Piecing Technique, it's best to choose paper that has smaller patterns.
  • The "back" side of the Enjoy the Journey Designer Series Paper (DSP) is a good choice (see below)
  • Just stamp on scraps of DSP and fussy cut out images with Paper Snips.
  • Pick up cut pieces with sticky end of the Take Your Pick tool and adhere with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stamping with the STARS #404: Rubberbands, Milkshakes & Kissing!

With a headline like that, did I get your attention?

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Stamping with the STARS Inspiration Hop #DOswts405.  This week we're happy to share Rubberband Stamping Technique Inspiration with you.

405
Last fall, one of my team members, Beverly Jackson demonstrated the Rubberband Stamping Technique at our monthly DOstamperSTARS Zoom get-together.  It's been on my mind ever since then and I thought it would make a great theme for a Stamping with the STARS hop. So here we are!

Stampin’ Up! Share-a-Milkshare Rubberband stamping technique card by Dawn Olchefske Stamping with the STARS challenge #DOswts405 #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #DOstamperSTARS #birthdaycards p

The inspiration for my card...We have a local restaurant, the 50's Grill, and it's exactly what you might think.  Servers in pink & black, hamburgers, fries, homemade food (the best pot pies) and ice cream.  It's one of favorites - especially for birthdays! 

My grandkids like to get a Mint Chocolate Shake.  It's fun to see it brought to the table with all of the chocolate swirls showing through the glass.  So that's what I thought of for the Rubberband Stamping Technique.  

How'd She DO That? Share a Mint Chocolate Milkshake Tent card

  • Bundle:  Share a Milkshake
  • Paper:
    • Mint Macaron (4-1/4" x 8-1/2" card base scored at 4-1/4") 
    • Basic White (2-1/2" x 3-5/8", 5/8" x 2-1/8 for sentiment, scraps for whip cream, straw, cherry, tall glass die cuts) 
    • Early Espresso (2-7/8" x 4", scrap for chocolate die cut)
    • Country Gingham 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper (4" square) 
  • Ink:  Mint Macaron, Early Espresso, Melon Mambo
  • Other:  Mini Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine, Opaque Adhesive-Backed Gems, Stampin' Seal, Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals

 

Stampin’ Up! Share-a-Milkshare Rubberband stamping technique card by Dawn Olchefske Stamping with the STARS challenge #DOswts405 #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #DOstamperSTARS #birthdaycards c

So...what does Rubberbands, Milkshakes & Kissing have to do with each other?  Good question.  See my tips below.

How to create mint chocolate Share a Milkshake #dostamping #howdSheDOthat #stampinup #kissingstampingtechnique #rubberbandStampingTechnique #cardmaking

DOstamping Tips:

  1. Ink tall glass image with Mint Macaron ink, then stamp off on scratch paper.  DON'T STAMP ONTO PROJECT YET.
  2. Wrap a couple of rubberbands around Block C - let some of them twist.
  3. Ink up rubberbands with Early Espresso ink, then stamp off on scratch paper. 
  4. This is where the kissing comes in...press the inked rubberbands onto the tall glass inked image.  Repeat until you get the look you're going for - I "kissed" 3 times in various places.
  5.  Breathe onto image (to remoisten), then stamp onto scrap of white. 
  6. Viola...a mint chocolate milkshake!

I love the way this Share a Milkshake & Rubberband Stamping Technique card turned out.  I think the boys would approve. 

As you might have concluded, I really like playing with the Share a Milkshake Bundle.  I get giddy every time I make a new project.  I know I've been a tease, but I do have one more outside-the-box project to share with you...coming soon!

Add the Share a Milkshake Bundle, and the perfectly coordinated Country Gingham 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper to your shopping cart today, so you can start playing too!

FreshFreesia-FREE Sale-a-Bration Favored Flowers Designer Series Paper Embedded Embossed Technique Card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #stampinup #cardmaking p

As I have lots of cards to make each month, I try to keep them quick & cute, which is my style anyways.  Despite the look of these cards, the featured Embedded Embossed Technique is quite easy to create.  It's actually an oldie, but goodie technique from the past. 

 

160580-Cane Weave 3D Embossing Folder from Stampin' Up! #dostamping

The key to this technique is the embossing folder.  When I saw the new Cane Weave 3D Embossing Folder, I immediately thought of the Embedded Emboss technique.  Back in the day, we used punched out shapes to "embed".  However, the Favored Flower DSP & Fragrant Flowers Dies (also available in a bundle with the Fragrant Flowers stamp set) create the perfect shapes for this technique.

 

FreshFreesia-FREE Sale-a-Bration Favored Flowers Designer Series Paper Embedded Embossed Technique Card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #stampinup #cardmaking c2b

DOstamping Tips:

  1. Use both large and small flower die shapes (from Fragrant Flower Dies) to die cut flowers from Sale-a-Bration Favored Flowers Designer Series Paper. 
    • Be sure to die cut any partial flowers from the edges too, as they are perfect for this technique. 
    • Optionally:  You could fussy cut them out instead of die cutting - if that's your thing. 
  2. Onto black panel, adhere a large flower die cut into the lower corner (or grouping flowers).  Trim off any excess from edges.
  3. Use Cane Weave 3D Embossing Folder & Stampin' Cut & Emboss Marchione to add texture to entire panel.
  4. Adhere a smaller die cut to card with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Trim off any excess from edges.
  5. Adhere panel to folded card base
  6. Stamp and punch end of sentiment strip.  Adhere with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  7. Finish off with Iridescent Rhinestones

 

Multi-Color-FREE Sale-a-Bration Favored Flowers Designer Series Paper Embedded Embossed Technique Card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #stampinup #cardmaking p

As some of the partial die cuts will be flat on the left edges, play with the placement of the flowers.  Mix & match colors too!  

Multi-Color-FREE Sale-a-Bration Favored Flowers Designer Series Paper Embedded Embossed Technique Card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #stampinup #cardmaking c

This card was my favorite from the event.  I left everything as it was designed.  For tips on the Stampin' Blends Background Technique and more, I put together a video (see below).

Stamping with the STARS #DOswts391: Decorated with Happiness Holiday Card

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Stamping with the STARS Inspiration Hop #DOswts391.  This week we're sharing Christmas in July inspiration with you.


Stamping with the Stars #DOswts391 Christmas in July Inspiration #dostamperSTARS #dostampinup #stampinup

I've been itchin' to use the new Decorated with Happiness Bundle and today was the perfect opportunity to showcase it.  When I first saw the Jul-Dec 2022 Mini Catalog, I was immediately drawn to it.  And...it did not disappoint!

 

Stampin’ Up! Decorated with Happiness Bundle card by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS challenge #DOswts391 #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #DOstamperSTARS #christmascards

Stampin’ Up! Decorated with Happiness Bundle card by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS challenge #DOswts391 #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #DOstamperSTARS #christmascards
DOstamping Tips:

  • All of the ornament "outline" images were stamped with Real Red ink, on Basic White cardstock.
  • The key to this card is the Stamping Off Technique
    • Ink up the "fill-in" images, then stamp once (or twice) on a scratch paper, then stamp inside outline images to create a lighter version of the ink color.
  • Have fun playing  around with a variety of coordinating colors!
  • And...don't forget the embellishments.  The new Festive Pearls were the perfect touch (includes Real Red, Silver, Gold & Soft Succulent).

 

I did this card for a swap with my DOstamperSTARS Team.  One of the many activities we do throughout the year.  I did wafflle between which direction to go with, portrait or landscape.
