DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #289-Tropical Chic #2


Hi Stampers,

Welcome back for another DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge. When I started challenging myself to create a week's worth of cards and/or 3D items focusing on one stamp set, I really surprised myself. I honestly didn't know if I could do or not. But, with Tropical Chic being the third stamp set I'm on and this is the second week for that!!! I hope you are not getting sick bored of seeing the same stamp set for 2 weeks. It is making me so happy that I am getting ink all over instead of dust. I will finish out this week with Tropical Chic. So, keeping with MY challenge here is today's card.



I am just loving the new color Granny Apple Green!!! Great color!!!


DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #288-Tropical Chic


Hi Stampers,

Welcome back to another DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge. This week's challenge we are to use the new 2018-2020 In Colors. In keeping with my personal challenge of using a Stamp Set Bundle for a week, I made a set of 3 x 3 cards with a box using the Tropical Chic bundle.

This would be a cute set to give to a friend, coworkers....etcetera. I also remembered to stamp the envelopes.

I just love these bright and cheery in colors!!! I used the adidrondack chair from Colorful Seasons and the sun is from the Waterfront stamp set.




I just LOVE the leaf square die in this set.  I popped it up with mini dimensionals. This die cut is perfect size for the box too!!!


The Granny Apple Green ribbon matches perfectly!!! You don't have to seal the top, just tie ribbon around the box and then in a bow.

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #287-Patriotic Painted Glass



Hi Stampers,

Welcome back for another DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge. This week we have a Home Sweet Home challenge. Who lives in the United States and does not like red, white and blue? With the upcoming holiday this made the challenge very easy for me. Also, with keeping with my weekly challenge to myself to post 3-4 card ideas for a particular stamp set/bundle I used the Graceful Glass collection.

I wasn't too sure about the font used on the sentiment stamps but it looks beautiful with this style card.


I die cut 3 of each color using the thinlit half circle and then patiently placed the colored die cut in each spot. The center one I adhered the "outline" to a piece of a scrap of Whisper White, placed the colored die cuts on it and then placed on dimensionals. The sentiment I placed the Whisper White back into the punch to make it smaller.


This shows how the center "pops" up


 Make sure to check back on Friday for another card made with the Painted Glass stamp set.


DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #286-Animal Outing


Hi Stampers,

Finally, I am participating again in our DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenges. This week it is a showCASE challenge. They are based on "CASEing" (COPY AND SHARE EVERYTHING) a project from the catalog. This means you can use the same or similar layout, but change out the stamp set(s) and/or colors. You could also use the color as an inspiration. Basically, this challenge is showing ways you can be inspired by the catalog. As I am sticking with my week long blog posts of Animal Outing cards, this is what I came up with. I used the same layout but used different colors and stamp set.



It actually was quite an easy card. I just sponged color on with stampin sponges. I used the thinlit dies for the tree branches and giraffes (turned one around to face the other). I used the butterfly stamps from the Enjoy Life stamp set along with the grass silhouette. I think it is a very sweet card.

Make sure you check out the rest of the crew!!!

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #275-Moon Baby


Hi Stampers,

We are having a Sketch Pad Challenge this week!!! Yippee!!! My fav!! And---I love this sketch!!! These cards came together so quickly and I love the layout. I definitely will be using this layout in the future.

I needed some baby cards in my stash so I reached for the Moon Baby stamp set. I made two cards. One in blue (Marina Mist) and one in pink (Powder Pink).







DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #274-We Must Celebrate


Hi Stampers,

Back for a DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge Product Spotlight. We are to use any critter image. When I first saw this stamp set it went to the top of my want list. I think the animals are so cute. A lot of stampers have cut the animal image apart to use the animals separately which is what I did with the bunny.

I need a few Easter cards to send to my grandchildren and this fit the bill perfectly. I finally used one of my blends too-Pink Pirouette. Boy, do they ever color nicely!!! I also came up with another use for the "pineapple" punch from the Itty Bitty Fruit Punch Pack--a carrot!! And, if you haven't used the Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon--OMGosh this is so pretty--shiny and silky. Stampin' Up! always produces superb quality items.

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.
