DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #272-Tutti Fruitti



Hi Stampers,

Today's Thursday challenge is a color my world challenge and with that, the colors are all included in the Tutti Fruitti DSP. The prints in the DSP stack are just adorable and very colorful!!! For this week's card, I let the DSP do the talking. Didn't overthink it and just went with it. The only stamping on it is for the sentiment which comes from the Mixed Drinks stamp set.






DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #271-Lemon Builder Punch


Hi Stampers,

We have my fav this week---a sketch pad challenge!!! I have NEVER had a card come together so fast. I was even giddy about it!! Usually what I attempt to do and finish what I do, are 2 different things. If only all my cards were like this!!!

As you can see, I am showing some love to my Lemon Builder Punch and Lemon Zest stamp set. Even though Sale-A-Bration is going on, there are many stamp sets I haven't even used in my stash!!! I did use the fun Tutti Fruitti DSP for this card. The prints in this set are so bright and colorful and YUMMY!!!






DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #270-Lots of Lavender (in Copper)


Hi Stampers,

This week's challenge is use anything from Sale-A-Bration. I swore to myself I didn't need the Lots of Lavender stamp set but it ended up at my house anyways. Those stamp sets have a mind of their own I'm telling ya!!! Anyways with the release of the 2nd set of Sale-A-Bration items - actually the Springtime Foils Specialty DSP- I thought lets use the stamp set and emboss in copper. This DSP is GORGEOUS on it's own-very thick and shiny. I combined it all together along with the sentiment from Heartfelt Blooms. VOILA!!! My card is done.

Heartfelt Love Notes January 2018 Paper Pumpkin

Hi Stampers,

Have you seen the Heartfelt Love Notes January 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit? 




I finally had some time to myself this weekend to just play!!! Boy did that seem good. I was going to put this month's Paper Pumpkin box on the pile of previous ones and decided I am going to start playing instead. Here is one I came up with.  I just LOVE the copper hearts and I played off of those. I die cut a heart from the Bloomin' Hearts thinlit and popped it up with dimensionals to adhere to the heart paper in the kit. I didn't want the beautiful copper foil to go to waste being hidden behind DSP so I made my own faux copper paper. I took a piece of 4 x 5-1/4" Whisper White cardstock and placed the edges all the way around in VersaMark ink. Sprinkle copper embossing powder on it and heat it up with the heat gun. VOILA!!!




I think it turned out just great!!! I hope you give this a try!!

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #267-Birthday Wit


Well, welcome back to me!!! I didn't post at all the whole month of January!!! Unfortunately, time does not stand still. I needed a rest to just breathe after the holidays. So lets fast forward to this week's DOStamper Stars challenge---sketch pad #267.

This sketch is great, it came together very fast for me as I needed a card for our eldest grandson's birthday. He is turning 18!!!! I'm just completely speechless. I thought our children grew up fast. Add the grandchildren and POUF!!!! Connor has turned into an amazing, loving, kindhearted young man and we couldn't be any prouder. He is on the wrestling team and loves it. So, yes, I did cheat because I used my Cricut. Does it count though I used the medal from the World's Best Trophy set and the sentiment from the Birthday Wit stamp set?


The Pacific Point ribbon trim is perfect for this card!!!





DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #260-Celebrate the Season


Hi Stampers,

Back for another Stars Thursday Challenge. When I saw the colors, I thought what the heck? To be honest, not something I would pull together. Well, it is a challenge for a reason, right? LOL I actually like how my card turned out!!! Surprise, surprise, right? Right now, we are in the middle of a major snowstorm. My husband is out plowing the driveway and there is about 7-8 inches of the beautiful white stuff. It certainly puts you in the Christmas mood. Especially while I am inside where it is warm and cozy, crafting. LOL Got love that!!!



I just love the basic black shimmer ribbon!! It is gorgeous in real life!! I hope I was able to inspire you in some way!!! Go get your craft on!!!


Happy 15th Birthday Logan!!!

LOL He is #40!!!

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #259-Let It Snow


Hi Stampers,

We are having a sketch pad challenge this week!!! WOOHOO!! My fav!!! This card came together so fast it scared me!!! LOL I used this month's Paper Pumpkin stamp set for the sentiment.


As I live in Michigan we are supposed to get our first accumulating snow this evening 1-3". This weekend we are supposed to get more. I can't wait!!! Time off from work, snowing, drinking coffee and having a craft day. It doesn't get much better than this!!




Gift Bag Punch Board Turkey

Hi Stampers,

I wanted to share with you what I made to put on the table at Thanksgiving. Little bags of roasted peanuts made with the gift bag punch board. I used the gorgeous foil doilies for the turkey tail. I then used the retired Snow Friends framelit dies for the front of the body of the turkey, the hat which I trimmed a little to look more "pilgrim-y" and the feet. The  2-1/4" Starburst punch I used for the back of the body. The DSP is from the Merry Little Christmas DSP which I colored with Cajun Craze! 


My card guts for my Thanksgiving cards:


All put together!!!


A fellow DOStamper Star, Mackenzie Fuchs designed this Thanksgiving card which I CASED (Copy and Share Everything). Isn't it just gorgeous? Thank you Mackenzie!!!


Don't forget!!--Online Extravaganza is going on this week or until supplies last!!! Be sure to place your order today!!!


Happy Stamping!!!
