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...

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!

Spooky Night Suite Week: Spooky Cat Shaker Card

visit DOstamping Spooky Night Suite Week for lots of Halloween Inspiration #dostamping #stampinup #halloween #packaging #cardmaking #diy

We're getting our spooky on this week at DOstampingwithDawn, with Stampin' Up!'s Spooky Night Suite!  It's filled with potions, pumpkins, witches' hats, cats and more for your Halloween parties, treats & more! 

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! 

Stampin' Up! Spooky Cat Bundle Shaker Card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #halloween #spookycat

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.

  Stampin' Up! Spooky Cat Bundle Shaker Card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #halloween #spookycat

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.


Stampin' Up! Every Good Wish (2017 Holiday Catalo) card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC242 #dostamping (Rolling Marble Technique)
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.

Stampin' Up! Every Good Wish (2017 Holiday Catalo) card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC242 #dostamping (Rolling Marble Technique)

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.  

Stampin' Up! Every Good Wish (2017 Holiday Catalo) card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC242 #dostamping (Rolling Marble Technique)

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

In Color Week: Berry Burst Glossy Paper Technique (Misted Reinkers)

This week I'm sharing projects made with the new 2017-2019 In Colors.  Today's color is Berry Burst...my favorite new In Color!

Stop by for In Color Week at DOstampingwithDawn.com  #dostampingI received my Stampin' Success magazine last week (a quarterly magazine for Stampin' Up! Demonstrators) and got a chance to put up my feet and read it over the weekend.  One of the articles featured Glossy Cardstock.  The thing that makes Glossy Cardstock different is right in it's name.  In has a beautiful, glossy finish on one side.  Ink dries slowly on it, so it gives you time to try fun techniques with it, like today's Misted Reinkers!

I'm so excited to have Glossy Cardstock back, as there are so many techniques that you can do with it.  However, the Misted Reinkers Technique featured in the magazine I had never tried below.  It inspired me to get out some ink refills and play!

Fun glossy cardstock technique with Stampin' Up!'s Happy Birthday thinlit card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping 

Misted Reinkers Techniques- How To

  • Add drops of color with ink refills onto Glossy Cardstock.  (Berry Burst & Tangerine Tango ink refills)
    • NOTE:  with my first couple of tries, I wasn't too happy with the results.  That's because I think I held the ink refills too far away from the paper to add the drops of ink.  When I touched the paper and added the drops, I was much more happy with the results.
  • Use Stampin' Spritzer to spritz the drops with water (I used quite a bit of water).  Allow the color to spread.
  • Blot off the excess ink with a paper towel.
    • NOTE:  I used a napkin that had texture to blot it - that's why you see dots on my sample.  I actually like it...happy accident!
  • Let it dry 

Fun glossy cardstock technique with Stampin' Up!'s Happy Birthday thinlit card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping 

Happy Birthday Thinlit card

  1. Trim completed & dry Misted Reinker panel to 3-3/4" x 5".  Adhere to 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White cardstock.
  2. Die cut Happy Birthday Thinlit from Berry Burst cardstock and Gold Foil Sheet.  Adhere both together, slightly offset with Fine Tip Glue Pen.  Then to technique panel with Fine Tip Glue Pen.
  3. Wrap Whisper White Bakers Twine twice around panel and tie in a bow.  Then adhere to folded 4-1/4" x 11" Berry Burst cardstock.
  4. Add Gold Faceted Gems.

Fun, right?  My brain is spinning with lots of ideas the Misted Reinkers Technique could be used for...snowflakes, flowers, fireworks, etc!

Yesterday I shared the coordinating stamp set for the Happy Birthday Thinlits, the Happy Birthday Gorgeous.  Now you have a couple of ideas on what to do with them.  I was right, right?  You want them, right?  Save 10% when you purchase the (145301) Happy Birthday Gorgeous bundle.  Get yours today, so you can start creating with them right away!

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

DOSstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #230-Product Spotlight

For today's card, I have a Grad card for you using the retiring Always an Adventure stamp set and matching Outdoor Adventure Framelits Dies.  

Whether you’re an avid camper or a weekend outdoor enthusiast, you’ll love the images in this set. Use them to bring the great outdoors to your cards or to scrapbook camping and nature memories.
