DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #223-My Hero


Hi Stampers,

This week's challenge is a sketch pad. I was making this sketch WAY to hard. I left the table and came back and VOILA!!! I stress myself out for no reason. LOL I can't wait to see what the other STARS came up with!!




I love the bright colors I used. Who doesn't like bright colors for Easter eggs? My Hero stamp set is perfect for the holidays. It is a very versatile set. Also, to make the eggs I used the Balloon Bouquet Punch and just cut the tail of the balloon off after I punched.

Ink: Melon Mambo

Paper: Emerald Envy, Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry, Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Festive Birthday DSP

Accessories: Big Shot, Stitched Framelits, paper trimmer, Melon Mambo ribbon, dimensionals, SNAIL, rhinestones, Balloon Bouquet Punch, glue dots






DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #222-Black Magic


Hi Stampers,

This week for our DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge we have a product spotlight using Watercolor Pencils. If you have them, you know how great they color. They are smooth as silk. A few weeks back my upline, Dawn Olchefske, posted some cards on her blog utilizing the Black Magic Technique. This is such a cool technique and has been around for a long time but I have never tried it until now. All you do is stamp in White Craft Ink (let it dry naturally) or use your heat gun as it does take a little bit for it to dry on Basic Black or any other dark cardstock. Then you just color and highlight with the chalk marker (if you want). For those that like the ever popular adult coloring books this would be great for you to make your own!!!

I used the Melon Mambo watercolor pencil. Then I just cut freehand around the flowers.





Stamp Set: Rose Wonder, Garden in Bloom

Ink: White craft ink

Paper: Basic Black, Melon Mambo, Whisper White

Accessories: White doilies, white baker's twine, SNAIL, dimensionals, Big Shot, scissors, rhinestones, Rose Garden thinlits




You Light Up My Life

Hi Stampers,

I just love the embellishments that are in the Urban Underground Suite. I used to have brads like these when these were "in".  Perusing Pinterest I saw cards made like outlets and I thought I would give it a try PLUS I got to use one of the embellishments. I used the sentiment from the hostess set Pun Intended.



Stamp Set: Pun Intended

Ink: Basic Black, Smoky Slate for sponging

Paper: Whisper White

Accessories: 1-3/4" circle punch, slot punch (retired), 1/8" circle punch, Classic Label Punch, Urban Underground Embellishments, dimensionals, SNAIL, sponge

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #221-Cookie Cutter Easter


Hi Stampers,

We are having a Home Sweet Home challenge. The chocolate looks great doesn't it? My eyes were on the peeps. Growing up, I got these suckers every year in my Easter basket and every year I complained I didn't like them!!! LOL Anyways, I guess they kind of reminded me of my childhood so that is where the inspiration came from. HOWEVER, I do not own the Basket Bunch in the Occasions catalog. (I know, shocker, right?) So I got creative and created my "own" peeps out of the Cookie Cutter punch. All you do is punch whatever color you want and trim the sides off with scissors. Easy, peasy!!! I dipped the end of my stylus in Basic Black ink for the eyes and nose. Doesn't get much easier than that!!!




I removed 2-1/4" from the top of the card.



Stamp Set: Labeler Alphabet, Cookie Cutter Christmas

Ink: Basic Black, Crushed Curry

Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Cucumber Crush, Soft Sky, Whisper White

Accessories: Cookie Cutter Punch, scissors, dimensionals, fringe scissors, SNAIL

You just stamp, cut out with the framelit and then cut again with the framelit moved up a little.
