Million Sales Achiever Stamp Set: Music from the Heart

I'm beyond excited that I can finally share my Million Sales Achiever stamp set with you!  It's called "Music from the Heart".  Which is perfect, as every time I look at, it makes my heart sing!

"Music from the Heart" samples by Dawn Olchefske, Stampin' Up! Million Sales Achiever  - coming Jan 3, 2020 #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #OnStage2019 #millionsalesachiever 

You might be wondering, "why music"?  That's a good question.

Growing up, music was a huge part of my life.  I played several instruments: oboe, guitar, saxophone, but particularly piano (classically trained).  I was in any band I could be in...concert band, jazz band, orchestra, musical theater practice piano and of course...marching band.  Officially - I'm a band geek!  I'm sure I have some fellow band geeks out there, right?  In addition, I sang in choirs and co-directed our church's children's choir for a couple of years.  

My girls were also in band and choir growing up (of course).  My daughter Becky is now a musician, singer/songwriter.   And now a 3rd generation is developing a love of music...my grandsons.  Max plays piano and percussion.  Sam plays saxophone.

So...music was a natural choice for me!

I was thrilled to be able to share my stamp set and samples at the Stampin' Up! Atlanta OnStage this month.  See below for my creations (note: I will be creating a couple of videos on how to use the stamp set, as well as some of the specific projects):

Features of  the "Music from the Heart" stamp set:

  • Create your own greeting by mixing and matching images

  • Music notes can be stamped randomly on music staff, or stamp out a favorite tune ie: Happy Birthday 
  • Songbirds can be stamped on music staff 
  • Stamp the treble clef, then 2-step stamp the partial guitar image to create a "full" artsy guitar

I didn't get to play a grand piano very often - only at recitals.  But when I did, it made me feel like a real musician!  

  • I've heard from so many of you that are just like me, who love music! 
  • Your response has truly touched my heart - Thank you
  • I'd love to hear  your music stories...please share in a comment.

Come January 3, 2020, you can add "Music from the Heart" (151674) to your shopping card (part of the  upcoming Jan-June 2020 Mini Catalog).  Band Geeks unite!!

Stampin' Up! Woven Threads DSP card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC321 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting

I chose the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper.  It gives the look of woven rugs and textured fabric with printed variations and irregularities for an authentic feel.   Plus, it coordinates will all of our 2019-2021 In Colors!

Stampin' Up! Woven Threads DSP card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC321 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting

I really like the look of the Sahara Sand 5/8" Woven Threads Trim transformed into tassels.  It was easy to do - see my tips below.

DOstamping Tips:

  • Stamp sentiment on Sahara Sand piece, then cut end into banner shape.  Place a strip of Tear & Tape on backside of banner.
  • Gently remove the "tassel" thread from 3" of the Sahara Sand 5/8" Woven Threads Trim.  Adhere to backside of banner (on the Tear & Tape).  Then adhere banner to card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Adhere sequins to card using Fine-Tip Glue Pen.

On My Mind Paper Pumpkin: Ideas for Woven Threads

Today, I have a guest stamper for you...my grandson, Max!

Paper Pumpkin - On My Mind kit (July 2019) alternate cards by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #Paper Pumpkin #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #cardkits

It's August and summertime is in full swing here in MN...hot & humid.  That's when we head to cabin for some 4-day weekends to relax and take a break from the heat.  And there is something I always bring with me...Paper Pumpkin!

For me, Paper Pumpkin is even better when I craft with my grandsons.   Max is still interested in crafting, so he joined me!  Now that he's 12 and quite familiar with Paper Pumpkin, I just hand him the box and away he goes.

Paper Pumpkin - On My Mind kit (July 2019) alternate cards by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #Paper Pumpkin #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #cardkits

I really enjoy watching him create.  Even more fun, is when we banter back and forth on ideas.  

  • ME:  I was thinking of using this panel as is, and not punching out the pieces. What do you think?
  • MAX:  That's a good idea Umma. What if I do that, but instead punch out the pieces, then put them back in and pop them up?
  • ME:  That's a great idea Max, go for it!

Paper Pumpkin - On My Mind kit (July 2019) alternate cards by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #Paper Pumpkin #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #cardkits

It turned out great, don't you think?

Now it's my turn.  Here's my last two alternate ideas for the On My Mind Paper Pumpkin kit to share with you.

Paper Pumpkin - On My Mind kit (July 2019) alternate cards by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #Paper Pumpkin #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #cardkits

How'd She DO That? You've Been On My Mind card

  • Trim out a 4" x 5-1/4" piece from the printed envelope, and adhere to 4-1/4" x 11" Sahara Sand folded card base.
  • Cut pieces from kit into shorter "banner" pieces and adhere behind stamped label sentiment.
  • Slip on paper clip & twine to label.  Then adhere with dimensionals.
  • Attach adhesive sequin.

How'd She DO That? You're the Best Fun Fold card

  • Cut 5-1/2" x 7-1/2" piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock.  Score and fold at 3-1/4".
  • Stamp medallion image on smaller front piece.
  • Adhere 4" x 5-1/4" Whisper White panel to inside of card.
  • Score and fold printed panel (from kit) at 3".  Adhere smaller section to back of card, and fold larger section over the front of the card.
  • Stamp greeting banner and adhere.
  • Adhere 1-1/4" square of Calypso Coral cardstock behind banner and front fold (see photo below)
  • Wrap twine around smaller folded panel and tie in a knot.  
  • Attach adhesive sequins to center of stamped medallions.

More Paper Pumpkin Inspiration: On My Mind

One of the fun features of this month's Paper Pumpkin kit, On My Mind...is the 3 different styles of cards.   Last week, I focused on the Come Sail Away coordination.   Wasn't that "sailor" card cute?

Today, I'm featuring three cards mostly focusing on the Garden Lane kit contents, supplementing with pieces from the sailboat cards. 

July 2019 On My Mind from Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits, Paper Pumpkin

How'd She DO That? Garden Lane Card #1:

  • Trim main panel down to 4-1/4" in length.  Adhere to folded card base.
  • From the green striped card base - trim off 1" x 4-1/4" from Mossy Meadow back side - adhere to card.
  • Use Mossy Meadow ink to stamp greeting, then add paper clip and twine.  Adhere with dimensionals.
  • Adhere leafy die cuts under greeting label with glue dots.

 

July 2019 On My Mind from Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits, Paper Pumpkin

How'd She DO That? Garden Lane Card #2:

  • Trim a variety of green pieces to 13/16" x 3-1/2", then adhere to folded card base.
  • Use Mossy Meadow ink to stamp greeting,  Adhere with dimensionals.
  • NOTE:  you could make multiples of this card.   Just change out the card base to either Sahara Sand or Crumb Cake, and cut your own 1" x 2-1/4" sentiment piece.

 

July 2019 On My Mind from Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits, Paper Pumpkin

How'd She DO That? Garden Lane Card #23:

  • Trim 2 pieces from the green striped card (front & back) - both measuring 2" x 4-1/2".  Adhere to folded Sahara Sand card base.
  • Adhere Old Olive stitched die cut (from kit).
  • Use Mossy Meadow ink to stamp greeting,  Adhere with dimensionals.
  • Adhere leafy die cuts & twine bow with glue dots. (Note: flip over Old Olive leaves to the white side)

I'm happy with the results of these cards that I created cards while at the lake.  It could be a nicer day here today.  Which I think is good for my mojo!

Vintage Style Daisy Lane Card & 3 Ways to Sponge

Last weekend we spent an extended weekend at our cabin.  It was nice and peaceful, which gave me time to stamp for fun. 

One of the stamp sets I brought with me as the NEW Daisy Lane stamp set.  Also available in a Bundle & Save 10% with the NEW Medium Daisy Punch.  This was one of the projects I came up with...

For this card, I kinda went "old school" and reached for my Stamping Sponges, which I haven't done in a long time.  It actually brought back memories from when I first began stamping.  Sponging was all the rage!

How'd She DO That? tips:

Create a different kind of background with a "swiped" direct to paper look from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #papercrafting #stampingtechniques

Direct to Paper Technique:

  • On Whisper White panel, swipe Sahara Sand ink using Direct to Paper technique.  Drag ink pad across cardstock.  
  • I did the top half in one direction and the bottom half in the other direction
  • TIP:  depending on how firmly you press on to the cardstock will determine how dark the ink will transfer.  I prefer a light to medium "press" (you can always add more if you want).

Learn 3 types of sponging from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #papercrafting #stampingtechniques

Three Ways to Sponge:

  1. For the "swiped" panel, first stamp multiple leaves with Old Olive ink, stamp a couple times before re-inking again.  Then sponge the edges using a "circular" motion.  Start off the cardstock (on scratch paper), moving onto the edges of the panel.  Repeat on all four sides.  Repeat again for a darker edge (the photo shows a darker edge)
  2. For the Old Olive Rectangle, I used a "flicking motion".  Hold the cardstock in one hand and the sponge in the other.  Press sponge onto ink pad, then "flick" the sponge against the edges of the cardstock.
  3. For the Daisy pieces:
    1. Cut 4 flowers using the Medium Daisy Punch (you'll need 2 flowers for each full flower)
    2. The flowers I pounced ink in the center, carefully moving outwards a little bit.  Then "flick" the tip of the petals.  NOTE:  you'll need to flower punch outs for each flower.
    3. The flower center is stamped stamped tone-on-tone (Sahara Sand) using the large daisy image.  Sponge the center, then fussy cut out (or use 1/2" circle punch.  Then "flicked" the edges.

03

Transform Timeless Label punch out into a tag by trimming off one end.  I see myself using this "trick" a lot in the future!

Vintage style Daisy Lane (from Stampin' Up!) card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #daisylane

I have to admit, this was not the card I started out to create.  But as I only brought limited supplies with me, it forced me to go in a different direction.  In the end, I was more than pleased with the finished card.  What do you think?

So...you may have noticed over the past few weeks, I seem to have a new "favorite" stamp set each week.

This week, my favorite is the Daisy Lane Bundle (151118 - save 10%)

  • It's easy to show your friends & family how much you love and support them with a stunning daisy card, like today's card.
  • And...the Medium Daisy Punch is a fun way to add daisies to your projects (size is approximately 1-5/8")

You'll definitely want to add the Daisy Lane Bundle to your shopping bag today!  And while there, be sure to stop by the Clearance Rack, as it's been refreshed with new deals!

Enjoy~Dawn O

Stamping with the STARS #317: Wild Rose Floating Frame Inspiration

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts317.  This week we're showcasing Floating Frame cards.

Stampin with the STARS #DOswts317 Floating Frame Technique #dostamperstars #dostamping #papercrafting

Floating Frame Technique using To a Wild Rose (from Stampin' Up) shared by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #DOswts317 #dostamping #dostamperstars #stampingtechnique #papercrafting #cardmaking #stampinup
The Floating Frame Technique has been floating around the internet lately and the STARS thought we should give it a try.  I've seen a couple different ways of doing it.  For my cards today, I used Glad Press'n Seal.

Floating Frame Technique using To a Wild Rose (from Stampin' Up) shared by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #DOswts317 #dostamping #dostamperstars #stampingtechnique #papercrafting #cardmaking #stampinup

How'd She DO That? Wild Rose Floating Frame card:

  • Bundle: To a Wild Rose stamp set with Wild Rose Dies
  • Paper:
    • Basic Black (5-1/2" x 8-1/2" card base)
    • Whisper White (two of 4" x 5-1/2" (one for inside), and scrap for greeting die)  
    • Whisper White (full sheet for flowers and leaves)
  • Ink:  Tuxedo Black Memento, Mango Melody, Calypso Coral & Granny Apple Green
  • Other:  Rectangle Stitched Dies, Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots, Stampin' Dimensionals, Mini Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Stamping Tips: Stamp outline image first, then stamp "solid" image by stamping off first.  Then "detailed" image by stamping off first too.  I did this for both the flowers and leaves

Floating Frame Technique shared by Dawn Olchefske for #DOswts317 #dostamping #dostamperstars #stampingtechnique #papercrafting #cardmaking #stampinup

DOstamping Floating Frame Instructions:

  1. Stamp several flowers and leaves (To a Wild Rose)
  2. Die cut with matching dies (Wild Rose)
  3. Arrange (but do not adhere) on 5-1/2" x 4" piece of Whisper White
  4. Cover with a piece of Press'n Seal, to keep everything in place.  Smooth over lightly, but be sure to press down firmly over any "empty areas" (this will help to make sure everything stays together for the next steps)
  5. Trim off overhanging edges, THEN REMOVE Whisper White panel (save)
  6. Die cut opening with Stitched Rectangle Die (2-9/16"x 4")
  7. Flip over and add a lot of Stampin' Dimensionals & Mini Stampin' Dimensionals (I used edges too).
  8. Adhere "frame" to saved Whisper White panel, then to folded card.  Remove Press'n Seal.
  9. Stamp sentiment.

Floating Frame Technique using To a Wild Rose (from Stampin' Up) shared by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #DOswts317 #dostamping #dostamperstars #stampingtechnique #papercrafting #cardmaking #stampinup

Save the center piece to create another card

  • Adhere to 3-3/8"  x 4-3/8" Basic Black Stitched Rectangle
  • Adhere to 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" folded So Saffron card base. 
  • Sentiment strip measures 5/8" x 4-1/4"

This is one of those kind of card techniques that takes a little extra time, but it's worth it.  Especially since it will create two cards!

Last note:  I'm completely in LOVE with our new dies.  Why?  Because the die shapes perfectly line up with the stamped image, yet there still is a little white space surrounding the shape after cutting.  It's a perfect cut each time!!

Get the To a Wild Rose Bundle today - you'll love it!

Enjoy~Dawn O

Fun Fold with my Favorite Rewards Set: Soft Spring

Have you checked out the new Stampin' Rewards/Host Sets for this year?  They are fabulous and it's a little hard to pick my favorite.  Though, I kept coming back to the Soft Spring stamp set (149429).

Don't you just love the signs of spring when plants push make their way through the cold earth and their beautiful flowers bloom? 

Right now my Irises and Mini Irises are actually started to fade.  But they really made me smile while they were blooming.  The Soft Spring Rewards Stamp Set floral images reminds of those days of spring.

DOstamping Tips:

  • For flowers:
    • Stems = Pretty Peackcock
    • Leaves = Pear Pizzazz (stamp off first)
    • Flowers = Balmy Blue (stamp off first)
    • Brush on Clear Wink of Stella over flowers - it will also move the color around a little.
  • For dragonfly:  stamp in Pretty Peacock, then brush on Clear Wink of Stella to move color around a little.
  • For greeting:  adhere to stamped panel with Stampin' Dimensionals, only on the left edge.

  • Coordinating colors: Garden Green, Mint Macaron, Mossy Meadow, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Sea Foam, Whisper White
  • At first glance, you might not think any other colors would coordinate very well.  But with a closer look, I found Pretty Peacock and Balmy Blue coordinated nicely.
  • In fact, I found a couple patterns that worked nicely with that color combo
