DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #253-Tootsie Pop Pumpkin Holders

#253

Hi Stampers,

Welcome back to this week's DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge. We are having a Home Sweet Home challenge. I drew inspiration from the pumpkins on the pillows. I immediately turned to the Christmas catalog drooling over the Pick A Pumpkin bundle. Since I do not own that set (yet--will be ordered this weekend!!!) Isn't it great that Stampin' Up! offers these in a bundle to save you 10%?

I decided to CASE a project I saw on Pinterest. I know they are simple but I am keeping with the theme of Halloween treat holders on my blog. It is this cute little tootsie pop sucker holder. All you need to do is cut out 6 of the "pumpkins" from the oval and circle layering framelits, fold in half and glue. When you come to your last pair to adhere, slip in your tootsie pop. I then measured the "stick" or "stem" and cut a piece of Old Olive cardstock and glued this around the stem. I cut two punched leaves from the new leaf punch and adhered onto the stem. You could run these through an embossing folder or stamp some great images but I didn't really feel the necessity because basically a child is just going to rip this open. LOL

Easy peasy!!! I hope you are able to make some of this pumpkins for your pumpkins!!!!

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #252-Hello Fall

#252

Hi Stampers,

We are having a color challenge this week. Actually, these are not colors I would reach for and put together but I made it work. All three colors are in the Painted Autumn DSP making it easier. I chose a sentiment from the Merry Cafe stamp set and masked off part of the saying, only using Hello Fall. I also used the beautiful Pool Party satin ribbon and the leaf punch.

I am LOVIN' the mini stampin' dimensionals!!! I used them to "pop" up the leaf punched framelit. They were the perfect size for this card. I also used them behind my sentiment.

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

Thanks for hopping by!!!

 


DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #250-Carols of Christmas

#250

Hi Stampers,

I hope you enjoy this week's DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge. It is a product spotlight, spotlighting the product suites. I actually used two different suites this week, Carols of Christmas and the sentiment from Snowflake Sentiments. I like the silhouette of the row of evergreens behind the tree and deer don't you?

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #249-I am Thankful for You

#249

Hi Stampers,

This week's sketch is all about home to me. At this time of the year, I always feel like "nesting". Don't you? Cooking, baking, decorating your home for comfort and what not. Well my card this week shows the beautiful fall colors showing in my neighborhood. Such a vibrant pallet and just plain gorgeous. I used sponge daubers in Tangerine Tango, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler and Crushed Curry on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock to get the colors of my leaves. I then used the leaf framelit from Colorful Season to cut them out. Some of the leaves I "popped" up on dimensionals to give even more dimension. I also punched out some leaves from the new leaf punch. The wood textures paper  worked great for my background. I then cut out a wreath from the Swirly Scribbles and embossed the sentiment from Painted Harvest in gold.

Hi Stampers,

For this week's challenge, the colors look like all about Fall!!! Naturally, I reached for my new stamp set that has not left my desk yet--you guessed it-Painted Harvest!!! The sunflowers look great in these colors and the sheen of the Basic Black ribbon is beautiful!!! I also used my new Pretty Label punch.

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #246-Cookie Cutter Christmas

#246

Hi Stampers,

For our challenge this week we are to use one of the three 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folders. Say that fast 20 times!!! WHEW!!! I only have one of them as the others are still on my wish list. It happens to be the cable knit embossing folder. It is perfect for the upcoming cooler season---think of bonfires, sweaters, scarves....... My favorite time of year!!!

I scoured Pinterest and found a card similar to the one I made. I just changed up the greeting, ribbon and added pearls.

I just made my own template and used the 1-1/2" circle punch for the collar. I then ran it thru the Big Shot with the cable knit embossing folder. I loved how it turned out.

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #244-Snowflake Sentiments

#244

Hi Stampers,

Welcome back!!! We have a Color My World challenge this week which just screams CHRISTMAS!!! (Ok, well, at least to me) Cherry Cobbler is my all time fav of all the Stampin' Up! colors and I couldn't wait to use it this week for my card.

Instead of banging my head against the wall, an idea popped into my head and I went with it.

I got to use my new Everyday Label Punch (available Sept.1) and a new stamp set called Snowflake Sentiments (available Sept.1) This could be you playing with new products if you sign up as a new demo!!

A very quick and cute card!!!




 

 


DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #243-Thanks A Latte

#243

Hi Stampers,

Welcome back!!! This week for our DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge we have a sketch pad challenge. LOVE THESE!!! As far as I am concerned, the work is cut out for you---grab a stamp set and DSP and BOOM!!! Card is done.

I am in love with the stamp set Coffee Cafe and the matching framelits. Probably because I am a HUGE coffee lover. As soon as I saw this set it was on my order. I have been trying to use up my hoarded beloved DSP. Maybe it is a good thing they retired their color family stacks of DSP. I think I have enough for at least three lifetimes. LOL

I keep forgetting to use my brights enamel dots. So stinkin' cute!!!

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #242-Autumn Happy Celebrations

#242

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.
