Stamping with the STARS #325: Shaker Card Inspiration with Frosted Foliage

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts325.  Today we're showcasing Shaker cards! 

#DOswts325 | Stamping with the STARS Shaker card inspiration hop #DOstamperSTARS #dostamperSTARS #christmascards

I knew right away I was going to reach for the Feels like Frost Suite of Products.  I'm tickled with the way it turned out.

Fun & Easy Shaker card using Stampin' Up!'s Frosted Foliage Bundle from Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS Inspiration #DOswts325 #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #dostamperstars

How'd She DO That? Frosted Shaker card:

  • Stamps/Bundles: Frosted Foliage (bundle with Frosted Frame dies and SAVE 10%)
  • Paper:
    • Purple Posy (5-1/2" x 8-1/4" card base)
    • Seaside Spray (5" x 4-1/4 for die cut frame)
    • Window Sheets (2-5/8" x 2-7/8)
    • Feels Like Frost 6x6 Specialty Designer Series Paper (2-3/4" x 5-1/2")
  • Ink:  Versamark
  • Heat Emboss:  Swipe Embossing Buddy over Window Sheet.  Stamp greeting with Versamark ink (being careful to stamp straight down, then pull straight up).  Cover with White Stampin' Emboss Powder, then flick off the excess.   To avoid warping the window sheet, melt with Heat Tool by starting under the window sheet, then above window sheet, rotating back and forth until powder is melted.
  • Other:  Frosted Frames Dies,  Shimmery Crystal Effects, Ice Stampin' Glitter, Snail Adhesive & Foam Adhesive Strips

DOstamping Shaker Card Tips:

  • Adhere DSP to folded card base.
  • Die cut "frosted frame".  Then die cut a "window frame" from center. 
  • Stamp and heat emboss window sheet as described above.  Then adhere window sheet to back of frame using Foam Adhesive strips.  (note: half will be on the window sheet and half will be on the frame.)  
  • At this point, I do recommend swiping the embossing buddy over the inside of the window sheet (will help a lot with static cling)
  • ONLY remove 2 backing sheets (the top and one side) from the Foam Adhesive strips and adhere those edges to the DSP on the card.
  • Then add approximately 1/2 teaspoon of Snowflake Sequins to inside the window.
  • Remove the last two strips of backing sheets to seal off the shaker.
  • OPTIONAL:  prior to adhering the window sheet to the frame, use the new Shimmery Crystal Effects and Ice Stampin' Glitter to add "frost" to the foliage on the frame (will take about 15 minutes to dry).  I like to do this on the Silicone Craft Sheet.

That might seem like a lot of steps, but it came together surprisingly fast.  

If you enjoy making fun technique cards and want to spread a little yuletide cheer, this Frosted Shaker Card is for you!  Be sure to  add the Frosted Foliage Bundle to your shopping bag today!

Enjoy~Dawn O

Pop of Petals Wreath Panel Card

Often I get asked where I get my inspiration from.  There are several answers to that question.  However for today's Pop of Petals Wreath Panel card, the inspiration came directly from Stampin' Up!. 

Four times a year, Stampin' Up! demonstrators receive a Stampin' Success magazine filled with creative and business inspiration.  I fold over the corners of the pages that inspire me and CASE those projects for my classes and clubs.  Why not, right?   I appreciate that Stampin' Up! provides samples for us to copy.  Just a little something to make my "job" easier.

Stampin' Up!  Pop of Petals panel card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #popofpetals #birthdaycards

Today's card is an example of a Stampin' Success project, that I used for my Stamping Club Class last month.  I left most everything the same with the exception of the greeting.  Other changes I made,  the white piece opens (like a "mini card"),  with a 1/4 sheet card base panel.   (Yes - I like panel cards!)

How'd She DO That? tips for Pop of Petals Wreath Panel card:

  • Stamps:  Pop of Petals, Itty Bitty Birthdays
  • Paper:
    • Soft Sea Foam (4-1/4 x 5-1/2" card base and 5/8" x 4" sentiment)
    • Whisper White (3-1/2" x 5-1/2" score at 4-1/4", and 4-1/2" x 1-1/2" for border punch)
    • Petal Pink (scraps for flowers)
  • Ink:  Soft Sea Foam, Mossy Meadow, Petal Pink
  • Other:  4-Petal Flower Punch, 2-1/4" Circle Punch (for wreath template),  Gold Faceted Gems, Linen Thread, Glue Dots, & Stampin' Dimensionals

Tips for creating a wreath using Pop of Petals stamp set from Stampin' up! - by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #popofpetals

DOstamping Tips:

  1. On 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece of Soft Sea Foam - stamp "flower group" with same ink in upper left and lower right corners
  2. Fold 3-1/2" x 8-1/2" Whisper White cardstock in half (to create a mini card)
  3. Creating the stamped wreath:
    • Cut a circle template with 2-1/4" Circle Punch. 
    • Place on front of folded "mini card" and use a pencil to draw around the circle.  
    • Stamp leaf image around circle with Mossy Meadow ink (the line will be the center of the leaf).  Stamp one leaf, then before reinking, stamp again (moving around the circle). 
    • Repeat until the wreath is complete.
  4. Cut 1-1/2" x 4-1/2" strip of Whisper White with Decorative Ribbon Border Punch and adhere to back of folded white piece.  Then adhere stamped mini card to stamped Soft Sea Foam panel.
  5. Stamp greeting on 4" x 5-/8" strip (towards right edge), and adhere over wreath.
  6. Stamp (3) flowers on Petal Pink scrap with Petal Pink ink.  Cut out with Four-Petal Flower Punch.  Adhere to card with Glue Dots.  Attach Gold Faceted Gems to flower centers.
  7. Tie (2) 10" lengths of twine in a bow, adhere with a Glue Dot

I'm lovin' that the Pop of Petals stamp set is for more than just flowers.  Anything that can make a wreath, I'm all for!!

When you purchase this stamp set, be sure to add the matching punch to your shopping bag too!

Enjoy~Dawn O

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. 

Texture Impressions Stamping card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #stampingtechniques

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!

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!

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.

  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)
  5. Stamp image on 3-3/4" x 2-1/2" scrap of Whisper White with Melon Mambo ink.  Use Aqua Painter to blend color on small hearts and both ends of the arrow.  Trim close to the "love" image and banner flag both ends.  Remove backing from the Dimensionals on the sequin trim and adhere love banner over it.  Then adhere entire piece to box front with Stampin' Dimensionals..
  6. Place Metallic Enamel Shape hearts over large stamped hearts. Adhere sequins with Fine Tip Glue Pen.
  7. Fill with candy or jewelry!
