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...

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

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!

DOstamping Vintage Daisy Lane card:

  • Stamps/Bundles: Daisy Lane
  • Paper:
    • Sahara Sand (11" x 4-1/4" card base, scrap for "tag") 
    • Whisper White (4" x 5-1/4")
    • Old Olive (scrap for 3-1/8" x 1-13/16" rectangle)
    • Crushed Curry (scraps for daisies)
  • Ink: Sahara Sand, Old Olive
  • Other:  Stamping Sponges, Timeless Label Punch, Linen Thread, SNAIL, Glue Dots, & Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Shopping List:  see below

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

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #270: Lots of Lavender with mounting trick!

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

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #270-Product Spotlight #dostamping
Last night was my Stamp-a-Stack class and one of the cards we made featured the beautiful Lots of Lavender Sale-a-Bration stamp set.  I think my customers were surprised at how easily the card came together.  That's because I used a "mounting trick" for the leaves and stem (see below for details).  This especially works great with photopolymer stamp sets.

Mounting Tip for Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration Lots of Lavender stamp set from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup  #stamping #rubberstamping #lotsoflavender #saleabration

Tip:  Easy alignment of stem & leaves:

  • stamp lavender image with black ink.
  • place the 3 leaf/stem images (uninked) directly onto the lavender stamped image in the coordinating areas.  
  • press an "E" block onto all 3 images.  
  • ink up with Old Olive and stamp all at once.
  • If you're making multiple cards, this saves time as well as perfect placement every time!

Sale-a-Bration: Lots of Lavender with Rectangle Stitched Shape

Today I'm sharing one of the FREE $50 level Sale-a-Bration choices called Lots of Lavender.

Did you know that lavender symbolizes grace and calmness? Which makes the Lots of Lavender a great set to use for a variety of reasons, including sympathy.

Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration Lots of Lavender shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #rubberstamping #papercrafting #sympathy

How'd She DO That tips for Lots of Lavendar Sympathy card:

  1. StampsLots of Lavender (Sale-A-Bration FREE with $50 order), Better Together
  2. Paper:
    • Soft Suede (5-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base)
      Thick Whisper White (4-1/4" x 3")
      Tutti Fruitti Designer Series Paper (4-1/4" x 2")
  3. Ink: Soft Suede
  4. Watercolor Pencils:  Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight
  5. Other:  Big Shot, Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies, Blender Pen, Crushed Curry Bakers Twine, Stampin' Dimensionals
  6. Tips: 
    1. Use the largest Stitched Shapes Framelit square die to make a rectangle for the focal point. Run through Big Shot but stop short of cutting bottom of square. Stamp lavender image near top of square cut out. Re-line up square die near bottom of stamped image (let die "grab" onto near the bottom of the previous cut image). Then run through Big Shot again, stopping short of opposite edge of square. Final piece measures 2-5/8" x 4".
    2. Before coloring lavender image - be sure the Soft Suede image is fully dry, so it doesn't smear when you blend the Watercolor Pencils
    3. Be sure to note the back side of the Tutti Fruitti Designer Series Paper...lots of non-fruit patterns to choose from.

Garden Girl Stamp Set with Water Coloring Tips

After yesterday's masculine card, today we're doing a 180, over to the darling new stamp set called Garden Girl.

 

Stampin' Up! Garden Girl stamp set | Shop with Dawn O | #dostamping

These cheery summertime images lend themselves to any kind of coloring technique you can imagine, but today I'll be sharing a card using watercoloring along with some tips . The line art on these sweet characters will definitely bring a smile to your face! 

Stampin' Up! Garden Girl card with Watercoloring Tips shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping 

Watercolored Garden Girl

  1. Ink up girl image (Garden Girl stamp set) with Versamark ink, then stamp on Memento Tuxedo Black Ink pad.  Then stamp on 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Shimmery White cardstock. Cover with Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder, then melt with Heat Tool.
  2. Create a "mask" by stamping girl again on piece of thin scrap paper or large sticky note.  Cut out image just inside the lines.  Place mask over stamped image with a tiny amount of adhesive.  Stamp fence on either side using the same stamping/heat embossing as described in Step 1.
  3. Watercolor using Aqua Painter & Ink Pads, as follows (see tips below):
    1. So Saffron=Hair
    2. Powder Pink & Crumb Cake-Skin
    3. Sweet SugarPlum=dress, bows
    4. Always Artichoke=basket
    5. Peekaboo Peach=carrots, sentiment
    6. Pear Pizzazz=carrot tops, grass
    7. Soft Suede=fence
    8. Emerald Envy=boots
    9. Smoky Slate=shadow around girl
    10. Soft Sky=sky
  4. Once dry, adhere to 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Sweet Sugarplum cardstock.  
  5. Wrap Sweet Sugarplum 3/8" Grosgrain Ribbon around panel and tie in a bow.  Adhere completed panel to folded 11" x 4-1/4" Shimmery White card base
  6. Stamp greeting (from Wood Words stamp set) with Peekaboo Peach ink.  (a sweet greeting to coordinate with the "bunch of carrots"!)  Die cut with 1-1/8" shape from Layering Circle Framelit Dies & Big Shot.  Adhere to card with Stampin' Dimensionals

Stampin' Up! Garden Girl card with Watercoloring Tips shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping
Watercoloring Tips

  • I like to heat emboss images so the watercoloring doesn't bleed into other parts of the image. Gives me a little more control.
  • Tightly squeeze closed ink pad lid into bottom of pad.  Open to find a "pool" of ink in the lid to use for coloring.
  • Let one area dry before coloring the area next to it  -  also helps prevent bleeding over.
  • Take a clear block and stamp one half onto Powder Pink ink pad and the other half onto Crumb Cake.  Blend inks together with Aqua Painter to get a skin tone color. 
  • I like to water down the paper first for sky and grass then go back and add color, to get a more muted and even look.
  • A gray outline makes your image pop off background.
  • Take your time with watercoloring and you'll be more satisfied with the results!

Stampin' Up! Garden Girl card with Watercoloring Tips shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping

Here's another Garden Girl sample created by Stampin' Up! with a little bit of a Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz vibe to it...cute!

Swap Share Saturday: Having Fun with Watercolor Pencils!

Woohoo for Watercolor Pencils!  Stampin' Up!'s new Watercolor pencils are high-quality, smooth color pencils. Perfect for watercoloring stamped images.  

I've been asked how they differ from the retired Stampin' Up! pencils.  Here's my thoughts on that...

  1. They come in Stampin' Up! colors - yay!
  2. The seem to be a "softer pencil" - easier to color
  3. The blend real nicely!

Stampin' Up! Watercolor-Pencils shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping

141709 Watercolor Pencils

  • Use with Aqua Painters, Blender Pens, or alone.
  • 13 pencils in Stampin’ Up! colors:
    • Basic Black, Basic Gray, Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Pacific Point, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White
  • Price: $16.00

The following swaps use a basic coloring technique...

Color and Blend technique is as easy as 1,2,3:

  1. stamp image with Archival Basic Black ink
  2. add color with Watercolor Pencils
  3. blend with either an Aqua Painter or Blender Pen

142742 Sprinkles Embellishments:

  • Tiny sequins and plastic spheres, perfect for topping a stamped image.
  • Approximately 950 pieces: 2 mm, 3 mm, 4 mm
  • Colors: pearl white, Peekaboo Peach, Pool Party, Watermelon Wonder 

I have to admit, when I first got the Sprinkles Embellishments, I thought to myself, "other than shaker cards, how am I going to use these cute sprinkles?".   My friend and STARS team member, Mackenzie Fuchs suggested the "dip" method...what a brilliant idea!  These cones remind me of the "crunch cones" at Dairy Queen.  I used to get them all the time when I was a kid...yum!
