DOstamping Tips:

  1. To get the different shades of black...use a light touch for the gray areas, then press harder to get a true black.  Blend lightly with a Blender Pen.
  2. Don't recognize the DSP.  It's the back side of the Botanical Butterflies Designer Series Paper (FREE with $50 order).  ALL the back sides of this double-sided paper are black & white patterns.  Gotta love that!

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop: Be My Valentine

Paper Pumpkin Thing Monthly Blog Hop Dawn Olchefske #paperpumpkin #dostamping

Welcome to the A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop! 

I'm excited to join this talented group of stampers to share alternate ideas for Paper Pumpkin Kits.  Today we're sharing the January 2019 Paper Pumpkin - Be My Valentine

First off - this month's kit is awesome!  You get supplies to make 24 pillow boxes.  Plus - the paper is double-sided, so you choose your favorite design (Pool Party or Melon Mambo).  Not only are the die cuts cute, but I'm enjoying the stamp set too!  Especially love the two bird images.

Paper Pumpkin Be My Valentine Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #bemyvalentine #valentinesdaycards

I have two alternate ideas to share with you.  The first one uses Stampin' Up!'s Note Cards & Envelopes (my favorite!).  They're great for quick stamping.

Just stamp your images with Tuxedo Black ink and color with Pool Party Stampin' Blends Combo.  Adhere the heart and finish off with Pool Party & Silver Baker's Twine.  Voila - you're done in no time at all with this quick and cute card...that you could send to anyone, at anytime!

Next up is another quick and cute card, just stepped up a notch.

How'd She DO That? Tips for Be Mine Birds Card:

  • Paper:
    • Pool Party(5-1/2" x 8-1/2"card base)
    • Whisper White (4" x 1" trim ends into banner shape)
    • Pillow Box pieces (two partial circles from box ends)
  • Ink: Tuxedo Black Memento Ink
  • Stampin' Blends:  Pool Party Combo, Flirty Flamingo Combo, Light Daffodil Delight (beaks)
  • Other:  Silver Mini Sequin Trim

Paper Pumpkin Be My Valentine Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #bemyvalentine #valentinesdaycards

I bet you're wondering how I cut that oval?  Well...

  • I've been trimming the ends off the pillow boxes to use the pattern paper for cards. 
  • Then I was finding these "half circles" all over my stamping table. 
  • I decided to add them to the back of the banner, to make them appear like an oval.  Pretty clever, right? 
  • So...save your scraps!

Meant to Be Sweet Cups

Oh my gosh - I'm so excited to share a fun Sweet Cup with you today!

I was shopping at Target and came across heart shaped Mini Mousse Cakes (Archer Farms) and they spoke to me! 

I haven't event eaten one yet.  It was my swap for my STARS team get-together potluck and shoebox swap that we had on Sunday.

Stampin' Up! Valentine Sweet Cups by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #stamping #diy #papercrafting #valentinetreats

It was so easy to put together and fun too!  I reached for the obvious, the All my Love Suite products.  When looking at this suite, don't forget to check out page 6 too, for the Meant To Be stamp set/bundle.

How'd She DO That? All My Love Sweet Cup:

  • Meant To Be stamp set
  • Sweet Cup
  • All My Love Designer Series Paper (for 2-7/8" Stitched Shape circle die)
  • Whisper White (scrap for Pretty Label Punch
  • Tuxedo Black Memento Ink
  • All of my Love Ribbon Combo Pack

Stampin' Up! Valentine Sweet Cups by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #stamping #diy #papercrafting #valentinetreats

DOstamping Tips:

  1. Use the 1/8" Circle Handheld Punch to cut two holes in the Sweet Cup (near each other) for the ribbon to thread through (so the ribbon stays in place)
    • NOTE:  Stampin' Up! just announced the 1/8" Circle Handheld Punch will be retiring and is currently only available while supplies last (due to the manufacturer discontinuing the product.)
  2. Thread ribbon through both holes, wrap around Sweet Cup and tie in a bow.  Slide bow all the way over to the holes (to cover them).
  3. Cut 3 pieces of tissue paper into 4" x 4" squares and place into Sweet Cup.  (I found the "valentine" colored tissue paper at Target)
  4. Place "Mini Mousse Cake" into Sweet Cup (mini cakes also found at Target)

Stampin' Up! Valentine Sweet Cups by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #stamping #diy #papercrafting #valentinetreats

I'm pretty sure any of your Valentine sweethearts will love receiving a cake filled Sweet Cup (or filled with any treat).  Add them to your shopping bag today, so they'll arrive in time for the special day!  

Enjoy~Dawn O

Items approaching not-orderable status

  • Butterfly Duet Punch (item 148523)
    • Sales for this product have exceeded our forecast and are continuing strong, resulting in a significant number of backorders.
    • Due to the Chinese New Year and port congestion delays, estimated arrival is mid-March.
    • In order to give you time to contact your customers so they may close any affected orders, this product will remain available until Friday, January 25 at 10:00 AM (MT); it will then be placed in not-orderable status, until our stock is replenished. 
  • Cake Builder Punch (item 148525)
    • Sales for this product have exceeded our forecast. Although not currently on backorder, we expect to deplete our inventory of this product within the next two weeks.  It will no longer be orderable as soon as inventory is depleted.
    • Due to Chinese New Year and port congestion delays, estimated arrival is mid-March.

Important note: Both of these amazing punches will carry over into the 2019–2020 annual catalog.

In addition, Sale-a-Bration Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack - Sold Out

  • The Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack (item 149623) may be one of our most popular Sale-A-Bration items ever.
  • t’s been so popular, in fact, that it has exceeded our product forecast and sold out in our North American markets.
  • We have a shipment coming in to fulfill backorders, but because this item has been in such high demand, we have been forced to turn-off the Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack.
  • Unfortunately, this initial shipment will help us fulfill only orders that have already been placed.
  • Once backorders have been fulfilled, a second shipment will arrive at the beginning of March, which will allow us to turn-on this item again; it will be available while supplies last only.
We’re so sorry for the inconvenience.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Stampin' Up! Be Mine Stitched Framelits Window Box (for Dove candy) by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperstars hop -  #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #papercrafting #diy #packagingideas #valentine

I was strolling the Valentine candy aisle a few weeks ago and came across these fun Dove Love Notes Caramel & Milk Chocolate Candy. 

Come to discover, when I opened my package, I was able to spell out a couple of words like; kiss & love.  I knew right away I wanted to make some sort of window box packaging.  So, through trial and error, I came up with a cute heart shape window box using the Be Mine Stitched Framelit Dies.

How'd She DO That? tips for DIY Dove Love Notes Candy Box:

Here's the treat box using the Lots to Love Box Framelits.  I wanted something a little "shorter", as the panda cookie treats weren't as tall as the original box.  So I altered the box a little bit.

Heartfelt Love Notes Alternate Card Ideas

You Make My Heart Happy

As I was playing around with the stamp set, I found that the "Happy Valentine's Day" image fits together like puzzle pieces when stamping a full panel - creating a fun background look!   For the red heart - I traced the negative space left from the vellum heart die cuts.  Add a little messy Silver Metallic Thread and voila, your card is done!  (Whisper White, Real Red, Basic Black)

Masculine & Feminine Happy Valentine's Day Note Cards

I found that the cards in this kit are the same size as my favorite Note Cards & Envelopes (5" x 3-1/2") - yay! 

  1. Trim off the top front flap of the pocket card. 
  2. Before adhering to the note card, use the rounded corners as a template and trace on the Note Cards (trim off corners of note card). 
  3. Add a 3/8" x 5-1/2" strip (Flirty Flamingo or Silver Glimmer Paper)  - trim off edges. 
  4. Stamp greeting on 1-7/8" Whisper White Stitched Shape Circle.  Then adhere to 2" Circle (Flirty Flamingo or Basic Black).  Punch hole with 1/8" Handheld Circle Punch.
  5. Thread Bakers Twine (Flirty Flamingo or Basic Black) through 1/8" hole and tie in a bow along with 4" piece of Mini Silver Sequin Trim.  Adhere to card with Stampin' Dimensionals
  6. Attach enamel shape from kit  (or color rhinestone with black Sharpie Marker)

Here's another LOVE note card...

  • Carefully pull apart one of the pocket cards at the seam.  Trim off at all of the score lines.   Use the two diagonal pieces - trim down to 3-1/4" wide.  The large one is 3-5/8" tall (measuring on the long side).  The short one is 3-1/2" tall (measuring on the long side).  Adhere to note card, creating a space between them.
  • Stamp "love" with black ink on 1/2" x 5-1/2" strip of Real Red cardstock.  Before adhering, temporarily place strip on card.  Use ruler and pencil to mark the diagonal edge and trim off.
  • Wrap Basic Black Bakers Twine around card front and tie in a bow.
  • Attach heart enamel shape (Brights)

Actually, here's one more set of alternate Heartfelt Love Notes card made by Bernadette Baio (one of my team members).  The "dress" card was punched out using that Best Badge Punch [140633] ...clever.
