Sale-a-Bration: Lots of Lavender with Rectangle Stitched Shape

Today I'm sharing one of the FREE $50 level Sale-a-Bration choices called Lots of Lavender.

Did you know that lavender symbolizes grace and calmness? Which makes the Lots of Lavender a great set to use for a variety of reasons, including sympathy.

Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration Lots of Lavender shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #rubberstamping #papercrafting #sympathy

How'd She DO That tips for Lots of Lavendar Sympathy card:

  1. StampsLots of Lavender (Sale-A-Bration FREE with $50 order), Better Together
  2. Paper:
    • Soft Suede (5-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base)
      Thick Whisper White (4-1/4" x 3")
      Tutti Fruitti Designer Series Paper (4-1/4" x 2")
  3. Ink: Soft Suede
  4. Watercolor Pencils:  Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight
  5. Other:  Big Shot, Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies, Blender Pen, Crushed Curry Bakers Twine, Stampin' Dimensionals
  6. Tips: 
    1. Use the largest Stitched Shapes Framelit square die to make a rectangle for the focal point. Run through Big Shot but stop short of cutting bottom of square. Stamp lavender image near top of square cut out. Re-line up square die near bottom of stamped image (let die "grab" onto near the bottom of the previous cut image). Then run through Big Shot again, stopping short of opposite edge of square. Final piece measures 2-5/8" x 4".
    2. Before coloring lavender image - be sure the Soft Suede image is fully dry, so it doesn't smear when you blend the Watercolor Pencils
    3. Be sure to note the back side of the Tutti Fruitti Designer Series Paper...lots of non-fruit patterns to choose from.

Watercolored Cheery Chirps Partridge Card

Today I'm sharing a darling Cheery Chirps stamp set card.  A partridge in a pear tree, two turtle doves, a rockin' robin, or a Christmas swallow—take your pick and make projects with your favorite seasonal bird!

Stampin' Up! Cheery Chirps stamp set shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #holiday #rubberstamping #watercoloring #bird

This darling partridge bird sitting on a wreath makes me smile!  I happen to collect holiday birds.  Each Christmas I put up a garland on top of a set of 3 bookcases we have.  I fill the garland with birds, nests and houses.  I recall when I first started, it was pretty sparse, but now it's very full.  It makes me smile to look at all of the various bird ornaments I've collected over the years - some received as gifts and hold a special place in my heart.

Moon Baby Shower Thank You Notes

Today I'm sharing a gift idea using the Moon Baby Stamp Set.

All the joy of babies, but without the sleepless nights! These nursery-themed stamps will put a little twinkle in your eye.  It's also great for thank you cards!

Stampin' Up! Moon Baby thank you cards created byDawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #moonbaby #thankyou

Recently I attended a baby shower for my niece, Kelly.  One of the things I like to add to shower gifts is a set of thank you cards.

  • use Stampin' Up!' Note Cards & Envelopes (set of 20)
  • package them up with postage stamps
  • invite the mother-to-be to pass the envelopes around the room so everyone can write their name & address on it.  
  • she's all set to add her personal note and send them off in the mail.

Stampin' Up! Moon Baby thank you cards created byDawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #moonbaby #thankyou

Stamp with Basic Black Archival ink, then use Aqua Painter to watercolor with Melon Mambo ink.

Stampin' Up! Moon Baby thank you cards created byDawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #moonbaby #thankyou

  • After watercoloring the image...It felt like it was missing something, so I added a "swish" of color to "anchor" the bottom of the card.  
  • I also came back with a Wink of Stella Glitter Brush and added glitter to the umbrella and swish.
  • Wrapped everything up in a Cello Bag and tie off with the gorgeous Powder Pink Shimmer Ribbon!

Kelly

I gave this sweet set of Moon Baby Thank You cards to my cousin, Kelly.  She's gonna be a great mom! 

So don't forget to take a second look at some stamp sets.  At first glance at the Moon Baby stamp set, I didn't think I needed it.  As I don't have babies anymore.  But...it is so darn cute, I ended up getting it for these type of occasions.  I'm sure glad I did! 

Enjoy~Dawn O

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #247: Merry Patterns Sketch

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

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC247 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy

For today's card I reached for the exclusive Merry Patterns stamp set.  It had just arrived and I was itchin' to play with it.   It's a free stamp set during September & October for either a $300 order or party (see the Merry Patterns promotion details & stamp set below).

Initially I was having trouble with the sketch.  I think I may have cut my DSP too narrow and I wasn't happy with the result.  But I wasn't going to cut up more DSP (if you know what I mean - it was a make it work moment!)  

So I starting moving pieces of paper around and it came together with the center of the card being inspired by the sketch, then added to a card base.  In the end...I really like the way it turned out, and I think I kept the spirit of the sketch.

Stampin' Up! exclusive Merry Patterns card by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #DSC247 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #merrypatterns #christmasaroundtheworlddsp

Merry Patterns Candle card

  1. Adhere 4 x 2" piece of Christmas Around The World Designer Series Paper to 4-1/4" x 3-1/4" Basic Black cardstock.  They adhere to folded 11" x 4-1/4" Real Red card base.
  2. Stamp greeting (from Merry Patterns stamp set) with black ink.
  3. Create Garden Green banner - cut each end of 1" x 5-1/2" strip with Triple Banner Punch.  Adhere to card front.
  4. Stamp candle image with Archival Basic Black ink on Watercolor paper.  Die cut with largest oval size from Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  Use Aqua Painter to color image as follows:
    1. Real Red = candles
    2. Smokey Slate = to add a little depth to the candle edges (use a very light touch)
    3. Daffodil Delight = flames (used stamp image first, then added more color with Aqua Painter).  Also continue to blend color above candles
    4. Garden Green = pine bough.  I watered down the paper a little first.  Then stamped many boughs.  They blended on their own.  When dry - I added more stamped boughs and blends the edges upwards along the sides of the candles
    5. Once dry - adhere to card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  5. Color Basic Pearl Jewels with red Sharpie Marker and attach to card.

Truth be told...at first I was not very happy with my watercoloring results.  I'm not the best at it - it's still very much a practice for me.  But after taking a little break (read...walk away), I came back with fresh eyes and I thought, "that's not looking as bad as I thought."  I have to do that sometimes...walk away.  Does that happen to you?

Between Stampin' Up!'s Annual Catalog and the new Holiday Catalog, if you have a big wish List ($300 or more)...you could get the Merry Patterns stamp set for free!  Or get your friends together and I can help you with party orders.

Enjoy~Dawn O
