Up first is my favorite...it's just stunning in real life!  Get out your Big Shot and die cut the pillow box.  I kept the box flat and cut through both sides at the same time with the Lot of Labels Framelit Dies (#5 from the center - see Framelit measurements below). 

Thank You Leaves

  • Adhere pillow box die cut to panel.
  • Adhere die cut olive and yellow leaves to die cut.  Attach gold leaf sticker.
  • Stamp greeting on tag with Soft Suede ink
  • Thread 2-1/2" of Mini Gold Sequin Trim through tag hole.  Wrap Linen Thread around sequin trim and tie in a bow.  Adhere completed tag with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Adhere completed panel to Whisper White Note Card (& Envelopes).

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #249: Painted Harvest, Pick a Pumpkin Wreath

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

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC249 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest, Pick a Pumpkin wreath card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC249 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #wreath #pickapumpkin #paintedharvest

I went with a pretty literal interpretation of today's photo inspiration.  But I REALLY like the way it turned out.  Here's how you can recreate it...

Painted Harvest Pick a Pumpkin Wreath card

  1. Run 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" Soft Suede panel through Big Shot with Pinewood Planks Texture Embossing Folder.  Adhere to folded 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" Soft Suede cardstock.
  2. Wrap Jute Twine loosely around 4-fingers three times.  Tie in a knot where the ends meet and then in two other places tie a small knot to complete the wreath.  Adhere with glue dots to card front.
  3. Stamp & cut the following images:
    1. From Painted Harvest stamp set:  sunflower on Whisper White, small flower image is stamped 4 times with Crumb Cake ink.  Twice stamped off and twice again, rotating image each time.  Stamp center image with Early Espresso ink...stamp off, then stamp again rotating image.  Stamp a few dots with Early Espresso ink in cent.  Fussy cut out.
    2. From Pick a Pumpkin:  pumpkin image on Whisper White with Soft Suede ink stamped off.  Dotted leaf image stamp with Early Espresso ink.  Stem image stamp with Early Espresso ink on Crumb Cake, use Blender Pen to blend in image.  Die cut with matching shapes from Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits Dies.
    3. Cut Crumb Cake leaf using Leaf Punch
  4. Assemble sunflower, leaves & pumpkin together with glue dots and Stampin' Dimensionals.
  5. Wrap Gold Metallic Thread around 3-fingers and adhere to back of "flower" with Glue Dots.  Then adhere wreath to card with "double-stacked" Stampin' Dimensionals.
  6. Adhere Touches of Nature Elements leaf just under wreath with a Glue Dot.
  7. Stamp "hello" (from Thoughtful Banners stamp set) with Early Espresso on Crumb Cake.  Cut with Classic Label Punch.  Adhere to card with Glue Dots and trim off excess from right edge.

Spooky Fun

Spooky Fun Bundle with Home Sweet Home Thinlits card created by Dawn Olchefske for Control Freak Blog Tour #dostamping #stampinup

OK - so, I had intended to somehow incorporate the matching Paisley Framelits into the previous card.  But decided to keep the card Quick & Cute...(great for mass-producing).  But with the Paisley Framelits still out...

Spooky Fun stamp set meets Paisley Framelits to create fun ghosts by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup

... as I was playing around with them, I noticed the paisley shapes looked like ghosts - woohoo, what fun!  I searched for a stamp set that might have some "face" images and came across the new Spooky Fun.  Stamped a couple of faces and voila...ghosts!

After stamping the ghosts, I figured they needed a house to haunt...though those ghosts look really happy.  Oh well, they still need a house.  So I reached for the new Home Sweet Home Thinlits and started building my Halloween scene

Spooky Fun Bundle with Home Sweet Home

  • Die cut the fence edgelit from Halloween Scene Edgelits from 2" x 4-1/2" piece of Basic Black cardstock (yes...it's a edgelit, fun!).  Adhere to 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic Gray cardstock (trim off edges).
  • Stamp greeting from Spooky Fun with black ink
  • Die cut house pieces using Home Sweet Home Thinlits as follows:
    • House = 3-1/2" x 2" piece of Halloween Nights Specialty Paper (trim off scored edges to get final shape)
    • Door & Window = Basic Black scraps
    • Door Handle = Pumpkin Pie (from triple circle die
    • Additional cardstock pieces needed
    • 2 strips of 1/4" x 1-3/4" Basic Black for roof (trim as needed)
    • 5/8" x 3/4" Pumpkin Pie
    • Assemble house and adhere to card with Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Die cut ghosts with Paisley Framelits (the two smaller ones).  Stamp faces.  Adhere to card.
  • Stamp bats with black ink
  • Adhere completed panel to folded 11" x 4-1/4" Basic Gray card base.

  • Instructions:
    • Fold a couple of baby wipes to create a surface large enough for your stamp.
    • Press stamp into the baby wipe to get an impression of the image.  (optionally...you could then use pencil to outline the areas you want to use for each of the colors you're using.)  
    • Use the ink refills to squeeze drops of ink onto a baby wipe.  For the "maple leaf" image, I put the Pool Party ink near the center of the leaf and Blackberry Bliss ink for the rest of the image.  This basically creates an inkpad.  (optional:  randomly drop ink onto the baby wipe in an area large enough for the stamp image.)
    • Tap the stamp onto the inked up baby wipe, then stamp onto Whisper White cardstock (Shimmery White cardstock would work great too)  
    • Let dry.
