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

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!

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

Stampin' Up! Snow is Glistening Sponge Dauber Trick card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC305 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #snowisglistening #snowflakeshowcase

Talk about a card that is simple, but wow...this one fits the bill.  With it's easy Sponge Dauber Trick (see below tips) - you'll get stunning results in no time at all

My Stamping Club Members couldn't get enough of it.  I heard surprised oohs, aahs and wows throughout the night.  Made me smile.  It's always fun to learn a new stamping technique.  But even more fun when it's so easy that you can go home and do it yourself!

How'd She DO That? Sponge Dauber Tree card:

  • Stamps: Snow is Glistening (avail until 11/30)
  • Paper:
    • Real Red (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base, scrap for 1-3/8" scallop circle punch) 
    • Whisper White (4" x 5-1/4", scrap for 1-1/4" circle punch)
  • Ink: Real Red, Tuxedo Black Memento
  • Other:  1-1/4" Circle Punch, 1-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch, Real Red 3/8" Mixed Satin ribbon, Snowflake Trinkets (avail until 11/30), Sponge Dauber, Mini Stampin' Dimensionals

Stampin' Up! Snow is Glistening Sponge Dauber Trick card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC305 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #snowisglistening #snowflakeshowcase

Tips for creating multi-colored tree with a Sponge Dauber:

  1. Ink of tree image with Real Red ink
  2. Before stamping, add black ink with Sponge Dauber to the larger snowflakes
  3. Breath on stamp to remoisten
  4. Stamp on 4" x 5-1/4" Whisper White Panel
  5. Then - ooh and aah!

Happiness Surrounds: Snowflake Showcase Ends 11/30

It's hard to believe that there is only 2 days left of November.  What happened to 2018?  It seems to have flown by so fast this year.

Today's card using the Happiness Surrounds stamp set from the Snowflake Showcase special that ends Friday.  This stamp set is named correctly, as every card I make with it, makes me happy!

Stampin' Up! Happiness Surrounds card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #happinesssurrounds #snowflakeshowcase

This card was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest made by fellow Demonstrator, Leonie Schroder.  Her card used different colors, but I've been in a purple mood lately, thus - purples!  We made this card at my Stampin' Club Class night and it was a BIG hit!

How'd She DO That? tips for Happiness Surrounds card:

  1. Stamps:  Happiness Surrounds
  2. Paper:
    • Whisper White Thick (4-1/4"  x 8-1/2" card base)
    • Highland Heather (4" x 4")
    • Whisper White (3/4" x 3-1/2", and scraps for flower dies)
    • Lemon Lime Twist (scraps for leaves dies)
  3. Ink: Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape
  4. Other:  Big Shot, Snowfall Thinlits Dies (11/30 - last chance), Lovely Floral Texture Impressions Embossing Folder, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #302: Fall Winter Woods

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

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC302 Home Sweet Home #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy
Feels like fall! 

At least that's what I saw when working on this week's DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge.   

Stampin' Up! Winter Woods Bundle card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC302 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #masculinecards #birthdaycards #winterwoods

My husband had a birthday last week and this was the card I made for him.  It wasn't exactly what I had in my head when I first started, but I think it turned out nicely.  And more importantly, he really liked it. That's why we make cards, right?

How'd She DO That? tips for Fall Winter Woods card:

  1. Stamps: Winter Woods, Beautiful Day
  2. Paper:
    • Whisper White Thick (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base) 
    • Whisper White (4" x 5-1/4")
    • Early Espresso (2-3/8" x 4-1/4" for curved edgelit)
  3. Ink: Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, Pumpkin Pie
  4. Other:  Big Shot, Into the Woods, Crumb Cake 3/8" Classic Weave Ribbon, Leaves Trinkets, Stamping Sponges, Glue Dots &SNAIL
  5. Tips:  see below for Sponging Technique Tips

Stampin' Up! Winter Woods Bundle card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC302 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #masculinecards #birthdaycards #winterwoods

Dawn's Sponging Technique Tips:

  • To get the ombre look, use Stamping Sponges
  • Sponge on ink using a circular motion
  • Start with the lightest color, working from the bottom to the top with the darkest color. 
  • I used Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody and just a touch of Pumpkin Pie.
  • I actually make a panel with Crajun Craze at the top, but it was too dark for my liking.

Even though the name of this stamp set/bundle is called Winter Woods, it makes fabulous fall card too - don't you think?!   Add it to your shopping bag today - see shopping links below.

Enjoy~Dawn O

Emboss Resist Technique is an oldie but goodie stamping technique. Here's how...

  1. Wipe Embossing Buddy all over a panel of Whisper White cardstock.
  2. Stamp images onto cardstock with Versamark ink.
  3. Cover with your choice of Stampin' Emboss Powder, remove excess powder.
  4. Use Heat Tool to melt powder, let cool.
  5. Sponge ink over the entire panel.  (either Stampin' Sponge or Sponge Dauber will work)
  6. Use a paper towel to remove any ink from the embossed images.
  7. The areas where there is embossing - it will resist the ink and the images will "pop"!

The "skeleton leaves" from the Rooted in Nature stamp set are a perfect choice for the Emboss Resist Technique.

My camera had a hard time capturing the complete beauty of this card - due to the shine of the Copper Embossing and Foil sheets.  Trust me - in real life, this card will make your recipient gasp as they take it out of the envelope!  What a way to say "Thank You".

If you haven't purchased the Rooted in Nature stamp set (or bundle with framelits dies - saves 10%)...what are you waiting for?   At the very least, you'll want to add it to your wish list, and maybe someone can get it for you for your birthday or upcoming holidays.

If you're ready to get it now...add it to your shopping bag today!  (see shopping links below)

How'd She DO That? tips for Rooted in Nature card:

  • Stamps:  Rooted In Nature (146479w or 146482c)
  • Paper:  
    • Whisper White Thick (5-1/2” x 8-1/2" card base)
    • Whisper White (4" x 5-1/4", 1-1/4" x 3-1/4" greeting, scrap for leaf)
    • Nature's Poem Designer Series Paper (4” x 1")
  • Ink:  Crumb Cake, Mint Macaron, Soft Suede 
  • Other:  Big Shot, Nature's Roots Framelits Dies, Nature's Twine, Copper Metallic Thread, Leaves Trinkets, SNAIL, Glue Dots, Stampin' Dimensionals, sticky note
  • Masking Technique:  
    1. On white 5" x 5-1/4" panel, stamp “wood” image with Crumb Cake ink. 
    2. Stamp again on a sticky note (near top where the “sticky” area would be).  Create a mask by cutting image from sticky note. 
    3. Place "mask" over the first stamped image (pulling it down just a smidgen). 
    4. Stamp leaf images over mask and partially on white panel.  Stamp again without reinking.
    5. Remove sticky note to reveal leaves peeking out under the wood image.

Nature's-Poem-CU

Tips to complete card:

  • Lay down some SNAIL adhesive over wood image (center, right edge). Wrap metallic thread around three fingers (3-4 times), pull off and press onto the adhesive. 
  • Adhere DSP strip over thread.  Lay down some SNAIL on top half of DSP.  Pull 3 threads from 10-11” of twine, wrap around fingers, pull off and press onto the adhesive.   
  • Adhere leaf die cut with glue dots.  Adhere greeting with Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Adhere completed panel to folded Whisper White card base.  Then use a Glue Dot to adhere copper leaf trinket.

The Rooted in Nature Bundle creates more than meets the eye.   Great for techniques, like masking and more.  Fabulous for any card maker!  Add it to your shopping bag today (see shopping links below)!  

And....BONUS!!  I have a few more Nature's Poem Suite projects to share with you.  Be sure to stop by this week for more inspiration!

Enjoy~Dawn O
