DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC291 Sketch Pad #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy
For today's challenge, I turned the sketch on it's end.  Then I reached for the gorgeous Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Paper.  With it's copper foil accents, it brings the bling on its own! 

Stampin' Up! Joyous Noel DSP with Merry Christmas to All card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC299 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #christmascards #simplebutwow

I was so happy with the way this card turned out, and yet surprised at how fast it all came together.  It's what I call a "Simple but Wow" card!   I'll definitely be making a few more of these for the upcoming holidays.

  1. Stamps: Merry Christmas to All
  2. Paper:
    • Gray Granite (11" x 4-1/4" card base) 
    • Whisper White (large scrap for 3" Stitched Shapes circle die)

The fun wire accent is new from the Stampin' Up! 2018 Holiday Catalog, Snowflakes & Stars Wire Elements.  I adhered it to the card with a couple of glue dots strategically placed (rolled glue dots into little balls). 

I you like this card, then you'll want to start with the Joyous Noel Suite products, then add a large greeting.  This greeting from the Merry Christmas to All stamp set is what drew me to the set.  View the shopping links below and add your favorites to your shopping bag today!

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #298: Country Home Fun Fold Card

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

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC298 Product Spotlight #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy

If you're looking for stamp sets that are perfect for coloring with Stampin' Blends, the 2018 Holiday Catalog is filled with lots of choices!  One of them being, the Country Home stamp set, which at first look, I didn't get.  I know, I know...what was I thinking? 

After seeing my DOstamperSTARS stamping community's creations, I broke down and got it.  And...I'm so glad I did. The images are perfect for Stampin' Blends.

Double Dutch Door Fun Fold Card by Dawn Olchefske, uses Stampin' Up!  Country Home, Tin Tile Texture Folder & Stampin' Blends for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC298 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #stampinblends, #countryhome

This is one of the cards I offered at my Local Stamping Club Class this week (I have a TO GO option too).  It was a hit, as it featured the Double Dutch Door Fun Fold and the Stampin' Blends

The card "style" was shared with me by my friend & fellow demonstrator, Julie Davison (I love her work!),. Let's dive into this fun fold card.  

How'd She DO That? tips for Double Dutch Door Fun Fold card:

Everyone had so much fun coloring this Country Home image with Stampin' Blends.  I heard many comments on how soothing it was to color with them.  For me, my favorite thing about Stampin' Blends is...they make me feel like an artist.  Here's the list of what was used.

  • Mango Melody Combo Pack
  • Mint Macaron Combo Pack
  • Old Olive Combo Pack
  • Blackberry Bliss Combo Pack
  • Dark Crumb Cake
  • Dark Soft Suede

Stampin' Blends are not just for paper.  You can also color our Basic Pearls and Rhinestone Jewels (among other surfaces), which were colored with the Dark Blackberry Bliss Stampin' Blend Marker.

Be sure to check out all of the products from the Country Lane Suite and add them to your shopping bag today!

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #297: Cauldron Bubble Bundle

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

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC297 Home Sweet Home #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy

For me, the obvious choice for this week's inspiration was to use the new Toil & Trouble Suite products.  They are so much fun to play with.  In fact, I have several more ideas to share with you in the coming days!
 

Stampin' Up! Cauldron Bubble Bundle card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC297 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #stampinblends #halloweencards

How'd She DO That? tips for Witch's Hat card:

  1. Stamps: Cauldron Bubble
  2. Paper:
    • Gorgeous Grape (11" x 4-1/4" card base) 
    • Pumpkin Pie (3/4" x 4")
    • Basic Black (scrap for 2" circle punch)
    • Whisper White (scrap for witch's hat)
    • Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper (1-1/8" x 4")
  3. Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
  4. Stampin Blends: Mango Melody Combo Pack, Highland Heather Combo Pack
  5. Other:  Big Shot, Cauldron Framelits Dies, Black Solid Baker's Twine, Spider Trinket, Wink of Stella Glitter Brush, Glue Dot & Stampin' Dimensional

Stampin' Up! Cauldron Bubble Bundle card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC297 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #stampinblends #halloweencards

Before Stampin' Blends, I was not much for coloring.  Now look at me...I look like an artist.  That's my favorite thing about Stampin' Blends!

Stampin' Up! Cauldron Bubble Bundle card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC297 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #stampinblends #halloweencards

The photo didn't pick it up at all, but I have to mention it.  My grandson, Max applied Wink of Stella Glitter to the stars on the hat.  In addition, he punched all of the 2" circles and helped with Stampin' Dimensionals.  He hasn't crafted with me in awhile and I was excited to have him offer to help - yay...so much fun!

I'm lovin' these little spider trinkets and had to use one on this card.  I found an easy way to attach them and tie on the twine.

Spider Trinket Tip:  

  • attach Spider Trinket on witch hat with glue dots
  • now that the spider is "anchored" it's much easier to thread the twine through the jump ring and tie in a bow. 
  • secure bow with a glue dot.

Have a little fun this Halloween with the Toil & Trouble Suite of products.  Add them to your shopping bag today! 

Enjoy~Dawn O

I have to admit...I am running behind today and just finished this card a few minutes ago.  Given that, I love the way it turned out and see myself making a few of these for some of my holiday cards this year! 

The Detailed Deer Thinlits Dies made it easy and I love the way it matches one of the patterns from the Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper with it's little touches of copper stars and white deers..

I have to mention - the Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper cut beautifully with the Big Shot Precision Plate, it popped right out!

I think this is going to be a versatile set, as some of the deer dies could be used for masculine cards too (see photo below).  With that kind of versatility, you'll be wanting to add the Dashing Deer Bundle to your shopping bag today!   

Enjoy~Dawn O

DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge #295: New Paper Country Lane

 It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge.  This week we're having a "Color My World" challenge.  
  DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge DSC#295

When I saw today's color combo, it occurred to me that there is a new Holiday Catalog paper coming (September 5), called Country Lane Designer Series Paper.  

Stampin' Up! Country Lane DSP quick & cute card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC295 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #countrylane

My favorite pattern is the "tiled tin" Blackberry Bliss sheet.  Doesn't it work perfectly?!  The greeting is from the new Holiday Catalog stamp set, called Peaceful Noel.  I love this sentiment (I've been reaching for it a lot).  It could work for any season.

How'd She DO That? tips for Country Lane QC card:

  • Stamps: Peaceful Noel
  • Paper:
    • Cajun Craze (11" x 4-1/4" card base, scrap for Starburst Punch) 
    • Whisper White (scrap for Pretty Label Punch)
    • Old Olive (scraps Leaf Punch - cut 2) 
    • Country Lane Designer Series Paper (4" x 5-1/4")
  • Ink: Blackberry Bliss
  • Other: Starburst Punch, Pretty Label Punch, Leaf Punch Galvanized Clips, Old Olive 1/8" Sheer Ribbon, & Stampin' Dimensionals 

Stampin' Up! Country Lane DSP quick & cute card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC295 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #countrylane

The ribbon was tied onto the Galvanized Clip (also new in the Holiday Catalog), then clipped onto the Cajun Craze piece.  I'm liking the look.  Just a little something extra.

This card came together really quick due to the punches  Punches make me happy!  I can see myself making several of these cards.  At least using the layout again.

Add some punches to your shopping bag today, and don't forget to get the new Blackberry Bliss ink too!   

Enjoy~Dawn O

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #292: Tropical Chic

Stampin' Up! Tropical Chic card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC292 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping  #papercrafting #tropicalchic

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

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #292 - Home Sweet Home #dostamping

For this week's challenge, I knew immediately what Stampin' Up! products I would use, the Tropical Escape Suite

Stampin' Up! Tropical Chic card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC292 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping  #papercrafting #tropicalchic

From the first time I looked at the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog - I completely fell in love with this suite.  Two reasons, 1) I adore the color combination used in the Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper and 2) The window leaf shape from the Tropical Thinlits Dies is to die for!  And I got to incorporate them both today!

How'd She DO That tips for Tropical Chic card:

  1. Stamps: Tropical Chic
  2. Paper:
    • Basic Black (11" x 4-1/4" card base)  
    • Blushing Bride(4" x 5-1/4")
    • Granny Apple Green (scrap for leaves die cut)
    • Whisper White (3-3/4" x 3-3/4" behind window, 2-3/4" x 1" greeting, scrap for flower & leaf.
    • Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper (4" x 1")
  3. Ink:  Blushing Bride, Granny Apple Green, Tuxedo Black Memento
  4. Other:  Big Shot, Tropical Thinlits, Granny Apple Green Ribbon, Basic Black Baker's Twine, Mini Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals
  5. Tip: 
    • After die cutting window shape in Blushing Bride panel, adhere 3-3/4" white square to back side, keeping the adhesive to the edges of the square.
    • Die cut Granny Apple Green "nested" leaves together at the same time.  Adhere with glue dots.
    • Fold 3-1/2" of ribbon in half, wrap black twine around it and finish in a bow.  Adhere with a glue dot.
