DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #242-Autumn Happy Celebrations


Hi Stampers,

This week on our DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge we have a product spotlight. We are to use the Stampin' Up! Ink Refills. I reached for my Happy Celebrations and Colorful Seasons stamps sets along with the coordinating embossing folder and framelits. I also used Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green and Cajun Craze reinkers. I used the Baby Wipe Technique to achieve the results. I also made a Twist Card.

I guess because it is August already I was thinking back to school, fall, shorter days, cooler days..... etcetera.




I love how it turned out!!! I just love Fall and all the rich regal colors!!! It will be here soon enough!


Make A Wish with Turkey Wishbone

Hi Stampers,

Growing up, my brother Tom and I used to fight over who got the wishbone at Thanksgiving. Did you too? I was playing with my new set Paisleys and Posies and look what I came up with.  I think it is cute. Don't you? I really like it because it is a different take on the other Thanksgiving cards I see and ones I create. I also used one of my Paper Pumpkin kit stamps to stamp the pumpkin background. Those little stamp sets are gems!!! I wish I would remember to use them more. And, did you see the circle framelits? They are the new stitched framelit which in my book ARE THE BOMB!!! I have wanted those FOREVER!!! I am so glad Stampin' Up! brought these out AND they are offering them to all of us, demos and customers early from the annual catalog which doesn't come out until next year!!! Isn't that great? I also like using the sentiment "Make A Wish" from a Birthday Set called Party with Cake. I love finding other ways to further my supplies.




Of course, don't forget to stamp the inside!!


This is the framelit I used to make the "wishbone". Just die cut it and cut it down with scissors.

Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Crumb Cake

Pilgrim Hat Clothespins

Hi Stampers,

I had some leftover black glimmer paper and mini clothespins so I made some pilgrim hat clips. Perfect for clipping to little snacks for your Thanksgiving table. I made two different ones. One uses the Artisan punch, 1" circle punch and  2" circle punch. The other uses the Artisan punch and small oval punch.



I also used some retired punches as well--Artisan Label and oval punch. I also used retired white satin ribbon.



I hope you will give this a try. The glue dots work MUCH better than the green glue (ask me how I know *wink*)

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #206-Turkey Table Favors



We are having a product spotlight challenge this week. We were to use one of Stampin' Up's packaging dies. I haven't used my Curvy Keepsake Box thinlit like in, forever so I chose to use this for the challenge. I wasn't quite sure what to make to WOW you with but with the upcoming holidays this idea popped into my head. I thought they would make the cutest table favors for Thanksgiving!!!! What do you think? I bought a pack of 7 of the dry roasted almonds  and placed one inside.




I made 4 "drumsticks" and 4 "bones". I adhered 2 of each together and then adhered them with dimensionals to each side. I sponged Soft Suede around the die cutouts before putting together. I cut the "drumsticks" out of the leaf framelits from the Flower Fair framelits set. I think the thick Baker's twine looks like the basting string you tie up your turkey with.







Stamp Set: None

Ink: Soft Suede

Paper: Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Pumpkin Pie

Accessories: Big Shot, magnetic platform, Flower Fair Framelits, white doily, dimensionals, tear and tape, Curvy Keepsake Box thinlits, YUM from Baker's Box thinlits, heart framelits, decorative label punch,Very Vanilla thick baker's twine

Lighthearted Autumn Leaves

Hi Stampers,

I still had a couple of maple leaves left over from when I sponged color on Whisper White, heat embossed with gold and then cut out with the leaflet framelits. I did use a favorite retired set for the sentiment called Lighthearted Leaves. 






I cut out the Very Vanilla, cut out the maple leaf framelit from this and then embossed with the woodgrain embossing folder. I then placed the "leaves" and adhered them in place.


Stamp Set: Lighthearted Leaves (retired), Vintage Leaves

Ink: Cajun Craze, for leaves-Cherry Cobbler, Rose Red, Old Olive, Garden Green and gold embossing powder

Paper: Very Vanilla, Cajun Craze

Accessories: Big Shot, leaflet framelits, woodgrain embossing folder, VersaMark, embossing, heat gun, gold sequins, gold baker's twine, dimensionals, SNAIL, paper trimmer

Thankful Grateful Blessed

Hi Stampers,

I always try to thank God each day for all of the many blessings he bestows upon us. It always takes the focus off of me and onto him. The Paisleys and Posies stamp set has the saying Thankful Grateful Blessed. It is so appropriate for the holidays and even ordinary days. We still have a good deal of fall color all around us and it is just awesome to be saying this in the beginning of November!!! Pretty soon, I am sure, we will be covered with that pretty white stuff!!!

Accessories: Big Shot, Leaflet framelits, magnetic platform, gold sequin trim, glue dots, SNAIL, dimensionals, linen thread, Versamark, embossing buddy, heat gun, woodgrain embossing folder

Autumn Sheltering Tree

I am over the moon with the way this card turned out. These pictures don't do it justice!! Cherry Cobbler happens to be my fav color so I think that helps too!! I made a mask cutout with the leaf die and sponged my colors. I then stamped with Versamark and gold embossing powder over it. You then heat with the heat gun. I also ran my Very Vanilla cardstock through the Big Shot with the Woodland embossing folder (I'm hooked on this folder too). I also die cut the word grateful using a retired set from Stampin Up! called Seasonal Frame thinlits.





Stamp Set: Sheltering Tree

Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Rose Red, Garden Green

Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla

Accessories: Gold embossing powder, heat gun, Big Shot, Leaflet framelits, sponge, dimensionals, SNAIL, gold trim from Holiday catty, Woodland embossing folder, Seasonal frame thinlits (retired)
