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.

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!!!


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!!




DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #257-Smitten Mittens


Hi Stampers,

I just love the above photo!!! I believe it is called buffalo check or buffalo plaid? It is EVERYWHERE this year!!! Very on trend to say the least. It reminds me of flannel shirts and warmth. I went looking through my DSP stack and came upon the Merry Little Christmas DSP from the Christmas catty. The papers are Basic Black, Old Olive and Whisper White. Well, I chose the black and white buffalo check and grabbed my Real Red sponge and went to town. It worked out beautifully!!


I made my own!!! If you haven't done this--you need to!!! Very cool results. I then reached for my new Smitten Mittens bundle I just received this past week. I am so glad I purchased this set. Absolutely adorable!!! I used the Cut Apart Technique. You basically line the card score line at the 2" inch mark and cut. Move the cardstock over and cut again at 2" inches. Usually you would use the leftover piece of cardstock to bridge the card together but in this case I used the mitten diecuts to achieve this.

Of course, you have to add bling and a little white bow!!!







DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #256-Santa Box


Hi Stampers,

This week for our challenge we have a Color My World challenge. These colors just SCREAM Christmas to me. I just couldn't get that out of my head probably because when I am crafting I am listening to Christmas music. Our local radio station started playing it November 1 and it is one of my many guilty pleasures. I just LOVE it!!! Instead of making a card this week I thought it would be fun to make a 3D item, hence the Santa Box Treat Holder. I even typed up a pdf for you!!!

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #254-Night in Bethlehem Eclipse


Hi Stampers,

Back for another DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge. We are to showcase the Holiday Products. When I first looked at the catalog, the Night in Bethlehem was immediately #1 on my list.  It was a must have for me. The Edgelit dies cut out intricate shapes and in my opinion it is just gorgeous!!! I know this will be a favorite of mine for a long time to come. If you peruse Pinterest like I do, you should have seen the Eclipse Technique. It is where you die cut out words, or in my case, numbers. You then pop them up on dimensionals and put the die cut back in the cut to make an eclipse. I want the letter framelits so bad but I used what I had which are the numbers. I envisioned something different but it turned out okay. I am tired from work and it shows. LOL I was measuring it wrong -- twice!!!; put the die cut on crooked!!; put adhesive on the wrong side of the die cut..... I should have just called it a night but I didn't. I just kept cutting out the same thing. LOL I hope this happens to other stampers!!!

I definitely want to play around with different colors and sketches with this set. Hopefully I will get some time this weekend and be able to post soon.




Remember, if you would like to recreate this card for yourself, you can order all the supplies in my online store.
