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.

  2. Cover window area from inside box with 3-3/8" square piece of Flirty Flamingo card stock.  Optional:  cover inside bottom of box with another square.
  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)
  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!

Today I'm sharing two more Pining for Plaid, October Paper Pumpkin Alternative projects...a card and 2468 box.

Paper Pumpkin Pining For Plaid projects shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #rubberstamping #paperpumpkin #piningforplaid #christmas

The 2,4,6,8 box was the first box I learned how to make when I started crafting. It uses a half a sheet of cardstock and the card bases from the Pining For Plaid Paper Pumpkin kit are perfect!  The card is a quick & cute card that uses the Everyday Label Punch.  Learn how... 

Paper Pumpkin Pining For Plaid projects shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #rubberstamping #paperpumpkin #piningforplaid #christmas

  2.

Paper Pumpkin Pining For Plaid projects shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #rubberstamping #paperpumpkin #piningforplaid #christmas

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.

2-4-6-8 Box

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! 

Stampin' Up! Night in Bethlehem Bundle Polished Stone card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #rubberstamping #techniques #polishedstone #howdshedothat #christmas #christmascard #nightinbethlehem #bethlehemedgelits

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 by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #rubberstamping #techniques #polishedstone #howdshedothat

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.  

Polished Stone with a Wink Technique by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #rubberstamping #techniques #polishedstone #howdshedothat

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.

WATCH VIDEO: Polished Stone with a Wink of Stella

 Measurements:
3-7/8" x 5-1/8" Glossy White Cardstock
4" x 5-1/4" Elegant Eggplant cardstock
5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Thick Whisper White
4" x 6" Silver Foil Sheet

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!

Stampin' Up!  Santa's Sleigh Shaker Card #christmas #santassleigh #bigshot #cardmaking #stampinup shared by Dawn Olchefske

Today's project is a shaker card, inspired by the card sample featured on page 119 in the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog (shown above).  For my CASE (copy & share everyone), I reached for the Spooky Cat Bundle and Spooky Night Designer Series Paper to create a fun Halloween version both inside and out!

Spooky Cat Halloween Shaker Card

  1. Adhere 1" x 4-1/4" piece of Spooky Night Designer Series Paper to folded 11" x 4-1/4" Pumpkin Pie card base.
  2. Die cut 2-7/8" circle from card front (left side) with Layering Circle Framelit Dies.
  3. Place 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" piece of Very Vanilla cardstock underneath front of card (don't adhere).  Using a pencil, lightly trace outline of circle through "window".  This so you know where to stamp the following Spooky Cat stamp set images:  rat image with Smoky Slate ink, bubbles with Smokey Slate & Pumpkin Pie.  Then erase pencil mark.
  4. Assemble shaker as follows:
    • Adhere 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" Clear Window Sheet to back of card front with Fast Fuse.
    • Use Foam Adhesive Strips around the window and edges
    • Add Metallic Sequins.  (note:  I used about a 1/2" teaspoon and I think that may have been too much)
    • Remove backing from Foam Adhesive Strips and adhere previously stamped panel (make sure it's upside down, so the stamping appears through to the front of the card)
  5. Wrap Basic Black Shimmer Ribbon around card front and tie in a bow.
  6. Cut a black cat using the Cat Punch, adhere to card.
  7. Stamp greeting with black ink on 1/2" x 2-1/2" strip of Very Vanilla.  Use Paper Snips to cut banner in each side.  Adhere with Stampin' Dimensionals.

For inside panel:

  1. Stamp greeting with Pumpkin Pie ink, rat image with Smoky Slate ink on 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" Very Vanilla cardstock
  2. Cut a black cat using the Cat Punch.  Stamp face image with Whisper White Craft ink.  Adhere to panel. 
  3. Adhere completed panel to inside the card.

Oh my gosh...I crack myself up with the inside of this card - ha!!  I get a kick at the way the cat is just staring you down, daring you to eat the "rat".  I know my grandsons will love it!!  What do you think?

I'm doing CASE the Catty with my friend, Dawn Thomas.  Be sure to check out her adorable shaker card too!  

If you like cats or if Halloween is your thing...the Spooky Cat Bundle (stamp set and Cat Punch) and coordinating Spooky Night Designer Series Paper will be  just the thing for you!  Add it to your shopping bag today!  

Be sure to stop by all week long for more Spooky Night Suite Week inspiration!

Enjoy~Dawn O

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #242: Rolling Marbles & Every Good Wish Sneak Peek

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


DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #242-Product Spotlight #dostamping

This week's challenge is to use Stampin' Up! Ink Refills.  Of course their main purpose is to re-ink Classic Stampin’ Pads.  But you can also use them for  or use for spritzing, watercoloring and lots of background techniques.  Today I'm sharing an oldie, but goodie technique...Rolling Marbles.

Rolling Marbles Technique

  1. Use a rectangle plastic container with a lid (I used a clamshell storage case, the kind that Stampin' Up! stamps used to be stored in)
  2. Add a couple of drops of ink refill to the container (I used Real Red for the first card, Real Red & Old Olive for the 2nd card)
  3. Place 3 marbles in the container.  Close the lid and shake the marbles around in the ink (side to side, not up and down).
  4. Open the container and adhere piece of cardstock (4" x 5-1/4") on the lid (just use a couple strips of snail - you want to be able to easily remove it)
  5. Flip the container over and roll the "inked marbles" over the cardstock to create the desired look.
  6. Remove cardstock, let dry (will dry quickly).  Add to your project.

For the focal point, I pulled out one of my "prize" stamp sets that I got while at the Stampin' Up! Thailand Incentive Trip, called Every Good Wish (from the 2017 Holiday Catalog, coming 9/1).  I used Real Red for the greeting and Old Olive for the holly leaves.  Die cut with Lots of Framelits dies (#5).  Add a 1/2" strip of Real Red Glimmer Paper, Old Olive Baker's Twine and some Basic Rhinestone Jewels.

I also tried it in Whisper White, with Real Red & Olive Olive Ink Refills (both in the Brights Classic Stampin' Ink Refills pack #131162).  I can't decide which one I like the best...Whisper White or Crumb Cake.  Which do you like?

Either way - Rolling Marbles is a fun Ink Refill Background Technique.  Be sure to stock up on Ink Refills today (see supply list below)!

Enjoy~Dawn O
