DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #250-Carols of Christmas


Hi Stampers,

I hope you enjoy this week's DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge. It is a product spotlight, spotlighting the product suites. I actually used two different suites this week, Carols of Christmas and the sentiment from Snowflake Sentiments. I like the silhouette of the row of evergreens behind the tree and deer don't you?




You can purchase supplies for this card and all my projects on my online Stampin' Up! Website by clicking on the catalog picture above right. 

I can't wait to see the rest of the STARS creations this week. 

World's Best Trophy

Hi Stampers,

Does someone ever just touch your heart and make you so grateful that they are part of your life? Well, that's how I feel all the time about my children but I think sometimes they need to be reminded of how much they really are loved even if they are adults. Don't you?

Our son, Cody, is no exception and I just felt he needed to know how much he means to us. He always surprises me with the depth of his heart.

I used the World's Best Trophy and the best part---it comes with 53 photopolymer stamps!!! WOWZA!!! This set is great for making ANYTHING family.

The Color Theory DSP is so versatile. I love the paper that looks like paint chips, weathered wood and color splatters.

Remember, you too, can make this card with supplies ordered from my website.

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #249-I am Thankful for You


Hi Stampers,

This week's sketch is all about home to me. At this time of the year, I always feel like "nesting". Don't you? Cooking, baking, decorating your home for comfort and what not. Well my card this week shows the beautiful fall colors showing in my neighborhood. Such a vibrant pallet and just plain gorgeous. I used sponge daubers in Tangerine Tango, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler and Crushed Curry on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock to get the colors of my leaves. I then used the leaf framelit from Colorful Season to cut them out. Some of the leaves I "popped" up on dimensionals to give even more dimension. I also punched out some leaves from the new leaf punch. The wood textures paper  worked great for my background. I then cut out a wreath from the Swirly Scribbles and embossed the sentiment from Painted Harvest in gold. 




Would you like to recreate this card for your own stash? Remember you can order everything from my website.  Thanks for visiting!!!


Just Married Car

Hi Stampers,

My niece, Alyssa, just recently got married and I thought it would be fun to make a car shaped card for the occasion. She looked so beautiful on her day.





To make this card, you need to cut approx. 1-1/2" off the top piece of a  4 x 11 piece of cardstock. I used the corner rounder from the envelope punch board on a lot of the pieces.

Painted Harvest Cut Away Card

Hi Stampers,

I think I am stuck in Painted Harvest mode. I guess with the changing colors occurring earlier this year and just the feeling of Fall in the air it's easy to reach for this stamp set. This time I used the cut away card technique. I managed to use some retired dsp in Elegant Eggplant and the same color in candy dots. The flower is stamped in Elegant Eggplant and Perfect Plum. For the center of the flower I used Wisteria Wonder with Elegant Eggplant dots.

Window Flip Card with Painted Harvest

Hi Stampers,

Yes, I reached for my Painted Harvest stamp set AGAIN!!! LOL This time I actually made a sunflower with it and used the Window Flip Card Technique. The sentiments I used are from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.


I used the new Everyday Label  punch and attached a scrap piece of cardstock to the piece I punched out back  into the punch to make it smaller.

This is the inside of the card:


This is the backside of the card:


The card standing upright:


Window Flip Card Instructions:

There are three main pieces of cardstock on this card:

  • 4-1/4" x 5-3/8" Crushed Curry cardstock
  • 3-1/2" x 5-3/8" Whisper White cardstock
  • 3" x 11" Garden Green cardstock, scored at 5-1/2"

Make sure you use a strong adhesive like Fast Fuse or Sticky Strip to adhere the flap behind the card. I used the green tombow glue on mine.

Punch a 2" circle from the front of the Garden Green cardstock. I ran my through the Big Shot with the petal burst embosssing folder.

Be sure to add the Painted Harvest Bundle to your shopping bag!

Triple Time Stamping with Painted Harvest

Hi Stampers,

I used the triple time stamping technique with the new Painted Harvest stamp set. This time I stamped with colors of pink. For this card I used Sweet Sugarplum and Rich Razzleberry on Very Vanilla cardstock. I used some retired ribbon in Rich Razzleberry. The sentiment is stamped with the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set. I used the stitched oval framelits to cut out the sentiment.
