DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #199-You've Got Class


This week we have a sketch for our challenge. It can be interpreted in so many ways and I can't wait to see what the other STARS have come up with. These are my favorite of all the challenges. Seeing how school is now back  in session I thought it would be appropriate for a schoolish (is this even a word?) card. I chose to use two different sentiments- masking part of one- to add another.

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #198-Lil Pumpkin



Hi Stampers,

We are having a product spotlight for our challenge this week. I know a lot of you just LOVE this product-washi tape!! It makes sweet and simple cards but still has that WOW factor. Since I don't send out Halloween cards, I only own a couple of the washi tape groups so my pickens were pretty thin to do this challenge!!! LOL





Stamp Set: Labeler Alphabet, My Hero

Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black

Paper: Basic Black, Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie

Accessories: Pop of Pink washi tape, Affectionately Yours washi tape, SNAIL, dimensionals, 1-1/2" circle punch, scissors, paper trimmer





Copper Flourish Thinlits

OMGosh, I bought the copper foil sheets in my preorder and they are SO RICH looking!! The Flourish Thinlits make gorgeous die cuts---very delicate and feminine looking. Remember you can order any of the items in my online store --- just click the button at the top to take you there!!





To make this card, I punched out three 1-1/2" circles spaced apart. I then used my layering squares framelits to cut out 3 "frames". Then, I took the circles that were cut out and used them to cut out my flower die cuts. I wish you could see this card in person. These pictures really don't do it justice. Just gorgeous IRL!!! I also colored our rhinestones with a copper Sharpie marker and placed in the center of each flower. I also used the thin long pieces of the copper foil I had left over to place along the top and bottom of the card instead of using a whole sheet of copper. I then, popped up the layer with dimensionals.


Stamp Set: Wetlands

Ink: Copper embossing powder

Paper: Very Vanilla, Copper foil sheet

Accessories: Big Shot, Flourish thinlits, Layering Squares framelits, 1-1/2" circle punch, heat gun, VersaMark, embossing buddy, fine tip glue pen, SNAIL, rhinestones, copper Sharpie marker, dimensionals

Harlow's Baptism-All God's Grace


My great niece Harlow was baptized a couple of weeks ago and I forgot to post the card I sent. They live in Kansas and my nephew (Harlow's Dad) is stationed in the Army (he's holding her). He was in Kuwait since she was a week old. We are so glad he is home and gets to be with his family again.

When I was making this card, I didn't intend to use so many retired items but sometimes you have to use up what you have.




Stamp Set: All God's Grace

Ink: Pretty In Pink (retired)

Paper: Whisper White, Pretty in Pink (retired)

Accessories: Scissors, SNAIL, dot embossing folder (retired), small heart punch (retired), Blossoms Bunch punch, Metallic foil doilies, dimensionals, oval framelits (retired), pearl basic jewels





DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #197-Oh Snap!!!

Hi Stampers,

Well the heat is still holding on along with the humidity. It was a few degrees cooler (still 90's) with high humidity. I feel sorry for the students in school. A friend of mine's granddaughter told her-"my eyes were sweating". LOL Out of the mouth of babes!!! Well, we are back with another challenge and this week we have a home sweet home challenge. It also goes along with the weather we have been having. I see many things, a color challenge, crabs, penguins, nautical---the list goes on and on. Well, I don't own the flamingo stamp set called Pop of Paradise so I decided to use punch art with a little diecutting.







Stamp Set: Labeler Alphabet

Ink: Watermelon Wonder, Basic Black

Paper: Watermelon Wonder, Basic Black, Whisper White

Accessories: 1" circle punch, 3/4" circle punch, wide oval punch (retired), oval framelits (retired), duet banner punch, banner triple punch, white baker's twine, dimensionals, sponge, SNAIL, white gel pen (retired), glue dots
