The bunny is so cute and hard to resist his sweet face!


Use Stampin' Up! Catalogs for inspiration!

If you found the bunny card a little bit familiar, that is because it was inspired by the layout from the kangaroo card on page 26 of the Annual Catalog.   Even though the original sample is from the Animal Exhibition Suite, it works perfectly with the adorable bunny image, don't you think? 

So don't forget, Stampin' Up! catalogs make for a great resource to use when you are feeling "stuck" on a layout.

DOstamping Tips:

  • For Watercoloring:
    • Stamp Rooster on Watercolor Paper and watercolor while you make the card. 
    • This way each color layer is completely dry before another layer of color. 
    • Start with the lightest and worked up to the darkest color.
  • For Double Z card:
    • Score and fold Mango Melody card base, and then adhere Designer Series Paper (as shown)
    • Score and fold Real Red strip.  Adhere smallest area of the strip to the right edge of the card. 
    • Fold strip and card closed at the same time, and then adhere left edge of strip to left edge of card.

Stampin' Up! Hey Love, Valentine's Day cards shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #valentinesdaycards

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!

    • Pool Party and Tranquil Tide
  4. Other: Tailored Tag, Heat Tool, Embossing Buddy, White Stampin' Emboss Powder, Blender Pen, Calypso Coral 1/4" Ombre Ribbon and Stampin' Dimensionals
  5. Tips
    • Ink flower image with Versamark ink, stamp on Shimmery White Paper, then cover with White Stampin' Emboss Powder. Remove excess and melt with Heat Tool.
    • Use blender pen and ink pressed into the ink case lid for coloring. 
    • Start with the lighter color then come back with the darker color.
    • Was going for a  watercolored look, so I didn't mind it the flowers weren't fully colored in.

Stampin' Up! Accented Blooms card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping  #papercrafting #accentedblooms #thankyoucards

As you know...Accented Blooms is my favorite stamp set from the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog. Check out my Accented Blooms Pinterest Board for even more inspiration!

Besides the beautiful floral image, I find myself reaching for the "thank you" and "hello" sentiments in the set.   Add the Accented Blooms stamp set to your shopping bag today (and the Tailored Tag punch - if you don't already have it).  

Enjoy~Dawn O
