DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #235-Mixed Drinks


Hi Stampers,

Back for a sketch pad challenge for the DOStamper Stars group. In keeping with today's theme, I made a Father's Day card for my hubby. He has worked so hard for this award card. He practices and practices to hone his skills and I am finally praising and recognizing him for his talent. I know he will appreciate this card and probably even get a little teary eyed when he sees it. 



I used Wink of Stella on the "suds" but it doesn't really show up.

I used the new Color Theory DSP and mini chevron ribbon along with the glitter enamel dots. The sentiment is part World's Best Trophy and Labeler Alphabet stamp sets. The World's Best Trophy stamp set you get 53 stamps!!! Well worth it's weight in gold IMO!!!

REMEMBER: You can order everything to make this card in my online store




DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #234-In the City


Hi Stampers,

This week's challenge is a product spotlight showcasing the new In Colors!!! I chose to use Berry Burst. I needed a baby card and I really like the deep pink color. I think this is my new fav. I also used the new Hostess Set In the City. You definitely get more bang for your buck with this set. You get----60 photopolymer stamps with this set!!!! There are so many possibilities with this set. I knew I wanted to use the new Color Theory DSP.  One of the selections looks like paint chip samples. I saw a card from Debbie Henderson using the Color Theory DSP HERE. I loved the layout of her card---I believe she called it a Z fold. I just swapped out the colors. Love this paper stack!!! I also used the new Glitter Enamel Dots.

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #232-Happy Celebrations


Hi Stampers,

What a colorful combo we have this week for our DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge. I finally got to ink up a new set that was in the Occasions catalog and will be carried over to the new on June 1. I am always in need of birthday cards so that is what I went with.



You emboss first with the coordinating embossing folder and then stamp with the inks. They emboss quite deep. I noticed I did use a little too much pressure on my stamps and the ink got inside the grooves of the debossed area. Oh well. I'm still happy with it.

Don't forget you only have 6 more days to order from the Occasions catalog!!! Place your order now!!!

Don't forget to check out the rest of the STARS:

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #231-Daisy Delight


Hi Stampers,

Here it is Thursday already!!! And time for another DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge. As you know sketch challenges are my fav. I just turned the sketch and this is what I came up with.  I was going to use some of my soon to be retiring stamps but NAH!!! who am I kidding!! There are new toys in the house and I went with it!!!




The only stamping is in the inside!! I just love the new Daisy Delight Bundle-Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper, Daisy Delight Stamp Set, Faceted Gems, 1/4" Double Stitched Ribbon Daffodil Delight and I used the new Happy Birthday thinlit.

I hope you check out the rest of the STARS:

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #230-Gifts from the Garden-free pdf!!!


Hi Stampers,

Back for another DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge!! This week we are focusing on retiring stamp sets. Yup, you know the drill, the ones that are walking the stamping plank. The retiring stamp sets will continue to be made through May 22. After that, it is solely as supplies last. So, be sure to place your order today!!!!

Because of upcoming Mother's Day, I chose to use the retiring stamp set Gifts from the Garden and Greatest Greetings. I made little flower pot holders. You can either put a pellet refill in the bottom and roll up a seed packet OR you can buy a little succulent plant. You can also make your own with the Oh So Succulent bundle. The greeting from Greatest Greeting is perfect for these!! You grow girl!!!





Here is the tutorial:

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #229-Cool Treats


Hi Stampers,

I can finally participate in this week's DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge!! Yippee!!! It feels great to be feeling great and able to create. It sure is my therapy. This week it is a Home Sweet Home challenge. With the nicer weather, who doesn't think of ice cream? LOL

This was my first time playing with my Cool Treats Bundle. I can see I will be reaching for this set ALOT!!! 




And, yes, I pressed the stamp too hard on the inside!! DRATS!! I hate that when it happens!! and wouldn't you know it--it was last thing I did to the card. Oh well, nobody calls me Mrs. Hallmark for a reason. wink






DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #226-Easter Egg Basket


Hi Stampers,

This week at DOStamper Stars we are having a product spotlight of any Stampin' Up! bundle. I chose the soon to be retiring Basket Builder. It is at a discounted price right now--half off!!! Get yours today!!!

Okay....back to my post (sorry I get carried away at sales). I saw this cute card on Facebook and she was so kind to send me the directions. I would give you her blog information but she doesn't have one although she should!!! But, thank you Lizzie!!!




And, it even folds flat for mailing just like the popular box cards!!!



DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #225-Double Ribbon


Hi Stampers,

Back today with a DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge. We have a home sweet home challenge. The pic reminds me of Spring that is coming---oh, wait-I live in Michigan and we are under a Winter Weather Advisory!!!! LOL Snow forecast for today and tomorrow and then 60-70 degree weather this weekend!!! Crazy!!!!

I used a cute little trick I learned from my awesome upline Dawn Olchefske. You use a 1/2" circle punch and then thread your ribbon through it.



Inside of the card:



I tried it first with some thinner ribbon but my hole showed through. So I used some retired ribbon which was thicker. It definitely seemed to work better. I hope you will give this a try!!!

DOStamper Create and Play



Hi Stampers,

My upline, Dawn Olchefske, is so great!!! She sent all of her team members in the mail little kits to put together. She called them Create and Play. WOW!!! is all I can say. So, so many ideas and inspiration out of the same kit. No two are alike.

Here is mine:
