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.

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.

Rooted in Nature: Stunning Embossed Resist Leaves! (& last day of FLASH1018 sale)

You're in for a treat today.  I have a stunning Rooted in Nature Embossed Resist technique card for you today.  If you need a special card for a special friend,  this is the card to make.  See below for detailed instructions.

Stampin' Up! Rooted in Nature emboss resist card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #rubberstamping #papercrafting #thankyoucard #rootedinnature 

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.  

How'd She DO That? tips for Embossed Resist Rooted In Nature card:

  • Stamps: Rooted in Nature
  • Paper:
    • Blackberry Bliss (4-1/4" x 11" card base, & scrap for oval)
    • Copper Foil Sheets (4" x 5-1/4" & scrap for oval)
    • Whisper White (3-3/4" x 5")
  • Ink: Versamark, Blackberry Bliss
  • Other: Big Shot, Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies (smallest oval), Layering Ovals Framelits Dies (smallest scallop) , Heat Tool, Embossing Buddy, Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder, 1/4" Copper Trim, Sponge Dauber, Mini Stampin' Dimensionals

Stampin' Up! Rooted in Nature emboss resist card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #rubberstamping #papercrafting #thankyoucard #rootedinnature

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) 

Enjoy~Dawn O

Festive Phrases: Starting the Year with a couple of Valentine's Day projects

With only a day left for the Festive Phrases stamp set, I thought I better share this beautiful card and fun Mini Pizza Box before the stamp set retires on January 2nd (along with most of the products from the 2017 Holiday Catalog).  The card features a colorful "alcohol" inking technique with a twist!   

Stampin' Up! Festive Phrases stamp set for Valentine's Day by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #love #valentine #valentinesday #festivephrases #bigshot #minipizzabox #treats

The twist is the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush and you're gonna love it!.  Not sure what it's called, but I'll be referring to it as Ink Blending with a Twist.  Here's how...

Instructions for Ink Blending With a Twist Technique:

  1. On a Silicone Craft Sheet, squeeze "dots" of ink refill around the mat.  Use various sizes of dots.  Start with your "primary" color - here it's Melon Mambo. 
  2. Then add a few dots of a secondary color - again various sizes.  Here it's Crushed Curry.
  3. Now for the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.  You'll need to "over-squeeze" the brush to get "drips" of the glitter mixture to come out to add to craft sheet.
  4. Next, fill a Stampin' Spritzer with rubbing alcohol.  Spritz the rubbing alcohol onto the ink so they start to blend together a little bit.
  5. Now you're ready to add it to Glossy Cardstock.  Place the cardstock glossy side down onto the craft sheet and "push" it into the color.  Lift up and see where else the color needs to go and continue moving and pressing until the cardstock is fully covered. Let dry
  6. NOTE:  the color will move around a little bit and continue to blend as it dries.  Each time you do it, it will look different.  Have fun experimenting!

Stampin' Up! Festive Phrases stamp set for Valentine's Day by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #love #valentine #valentinesday #festivephrases #bigshot #minipizzabox #treats 

Instructions for the Love Window Card:

  1. Die cut a 2-7/8" x 3-5/16" curvy heart (using Sweet & Sassy Framelit Dies) from glossy cardstock inked panel (from above).  Adhere to folded 11" x 4-1/4" Powder Pink card base.
  2. Open card and die cut a 2-3/8" x 2-3/4" curvy heart from the center of the opening left from previous die cut.
  3. Adhere 4" x 5-1/4" Whisper White panel inside card. 
  4. Use a pencil to lightly outline heart shape through window front.  Stamp image (Festive Phrases stamp set) using Melon Mambo ink.  When ink is dry, erase pencil marks (Optional:  instead of using a pencil, use a Stamp-a-ma-jig for perfect placement).
  5. Adhere sequins with Fine Tip Glue Pen.

  3. Use Paper Snips to banner flag both ends of 3/4" x 4" piece of Silver Foil Sheet.  Wrap Flirty Flamingo Bankers Twine twice around and tie in a bow (on far left end).  Adhere to 4-1/2" piece Powder Pink 3/8" Shimmer Ribbon.  
  4. Fold over 10" piece of Mini Silver Sequin Trim.  Place onto foil banner over twine.  Secure into place with Stampin' Dimensionals over the sequin trim (see photo)

2, 4, 6, 8 Box

  1. Important:  before scoring a card base from the kit, on the inside of the card, write x's along the score line.  You will not be folding on that line and the x's will be a good reminder.  (as shown below)
  2. Score card base at 2", 4", 6" & 8".  Turn and score at 2".  Fold on all scored lines with the exception of the x'd line.
  3. Use a scissors to cut along the four score lines from the bottom edge up to the 2" score line (as shown below). NOTE:  don't cut on the x'd out score line.  Also - cut away the left small rectangle piece (as shown below)
  4. Add tear & tape to 1/2" left edge and first lower left bottom panel.   Remove the backing.
  5. Fold box in half to adhere the taped edge to the other side of the box.
  6. Make into a box shape and fold bottom panels inward.  The tape panel folds second to last.  The last one will adhere to it.  May need to put flat on a table and press with your fingers or bone folder to get a good seal. 
  7. Fill box before proceeding
  8. Pinch sides together and use a 1/8" hole punch to create holes.  Lace Silver Ribbon through holes, Mini Ornament & tag (1/2" x 2-1/2"), tie on a bow.  Tuck Green Sprig under the ribbon.

How'd She DO That? Video: Night in Bethlehem & Polished Stone with a Wink!

I'm so excited to share this project & video with you today.  If you're looking to make a few extra special cards for the Holidays, for those extra special people in your life...this Night in Bethlehem Bundle card is the one!

For my one of Stamping Club Classes we did an oldie but goodie technique, Polished Stone...but with a twist, using the Clear Wink of Stella Brush.  I also shared it at the Creative Connections event in September and a few people have asked about a How'd She DO That? video.  So that's what I have for you today!

Polished Stone with a Wink Technique

The Polished Stone Technique has been around for a long time.  With the return of Glossy White Cardstock , it was a perfect time to play with it again.  It uses ink refills, rubbing alcohol, cotton balls and often times it has a "metallic" ink as well.  That's where the Clear Wink of Stella Brush comes in.

Add rubbing alcohol to a cotton ball along with drops of ink refill (Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder) and drops of Clear Wink of Stella Brush (squeeze hard).  Pounce repeatedly all over Glossy White Cardstock.  Let dry.  To see it in action, watch the How'd She DO That? video below.

It's hard to capture the glimmer that the Wink of Stella Clear Brush adds to the Polished Stone with a Wink Technique.  But in real life - it's gorgeous and your recipient will love it!  Give it a try! 

If you're looking for a special Christmas card this year, you can't go wrong with the Night of Bethlehem Bundle (save 10% with the Bethlehem Edgelits Dies). Add it to your shopping bag today!
