Inspiration

I'm often asked, "Where DO you get your ideas Dawn?".  Inspiration comes from a lot of places.  Whether it's a magazine (like the Stampin' Success for demonstrators), nature, a trip to the shopping mall...probably one of my favorite places to get inspiration is Stampin' Connection (SC)...an exclusive online Stampin' Up! Demonstrator community. 

Today's card was inspired by Stampin' Connection.  Specifically, a fellow demonstrator, Penny Smiley.  I saw her card on SC and totally had to make one.  I did change up a few details to make it my own.  

You too can gain access to Stampin' Connection, when you purchase the Sale-a-Bration Starter Kit, just like our newest DOstamperSTARS:

10 Min Tues Video: Quick and Easy French Foliage Triple Panel Card

One of my all-time favorite Stampin' Up! stamp sets is French Foliage.  It's perfect for this time of year and the upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday

stampin up, dostamping, dawn olchefske, demonstrator, french foliage, triple panel card, birthday

 

The images in the French Foliage stamp set lend themselves to "collage style" of stamping, making it a perfect stamp set for the busy stamper.  Pair that with today's Quick and Easy Triple Panel Card design and you've got the perfect card for the stamper-on-the-go!  

Today's card is inspired by a swap card I received at Founder's Circle, designed by Desiree Spenst.  See my 10 Minute Tuesday video below for tips on making this quick and easy card.  In fact - it's so easy, you only need 5 minutes!

10 Min Tue Video: Three Techniques, One Card

Yay - I have a 10 Minute Tuesday Video for you today!  This Field Flowers Faux Frame Card below features, not one, not two, but three techniques on one card!

The original idea for this card came from my Stampin' Success Magazine I receive each month from Stampin' Up!.  Each month it features creative and business ideas/tips I can use in my business.  I try to implement a couple ideas I get inspired by each month and this is one of them.

  stampin up, dostamping, dawn olchefske, demonstrator, faux frame, field flowers, label collection framelits, decorative label punch

Do you know what punch created the greeting label?  If you guess the Decorative Label Punch, then you'd be right.  Now you might be wondering, "How'd She DO That?"  I'll show you just how easy it is to do in the video below.

stampin up, dostamping, dawn olchefske, demonstrator, faux frame, field flowers, label collection framelits, decorative label punch

The card & vdieo features three techniques:

  1. Faux Frame (a sponging technique)
  2. 2-Step Stamping Technique
  3. Decorative Label Punch Trick!

Easy Scentsational Season Cocoa Packet Wow Video!

Here's another DOstamperSTARS Camp-a-Rama Event project that was a big hit...the super easy Scentasational Season Cocoa Packet Holder.  According to DOstamperSTAR Laurie Zoellmer...it was a big WOW and she can't stop talking about it.

stampin up, dostamping, dawn olchefske, demonstrator,scentsational season bundle. cocoa packet holder

stampin up, dostamping, dawn olchefske, demonstrator,scentsational season bundle. cocoa packet holder


For this project, I enlisted the help of fellow demonstrator, sideline Jolene Jacobs.  I designed the cocoa packet and she added the stamping.  What a great team!

And yes - I did make a video.  In fact...it's my 10-Minute Tuesday Video (that I know many of you have been asking when I would be doing these again.  I'm gonna try my best to get back on track.  I didn't realize that you guys LOVED them and was missing them.)

What's a 10-Minute Tuesday video?  That's when I videotape a project from beginning to end.  They generally take longer for me to videotape and edit.  For my other videos, I usually only share tips and how-to's that don't seem obvious from the project photo.
