DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #260-Celebrate the Season

#260

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!!!

Happy 15th Birthday Logan!!!

Hi Stampers,

Recently we just celebrated our grandson Logan's 15th birthday. He is so sports oriented and HIGHLY competitive. It was only fitting to make him a basketball shoe card for his birthday. We are so proud of him---he is only a freshman and he and his best friend made the Varsity team!!!! WOOHOO!!! I think it helps that he not only loves the game but is also 6'4"!!! LOL He is #40!!!

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!

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #257-Smitten Mittens

#257

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!!

DSCN0176

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

#256

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

#254

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.

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.

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?

World's Best Trophy

Hi Stampers,

Does someone ever just touch your heart and make you so grateful that they are part of your life? Well, that's how I feel all the time about my children but I think sometimes they need to be reminded of how much they really are loved even if they are adults. Don't you?

Our son, Cody, is no exception and I just felt he needed to know how much he means to us. He always surprises me with the depth of his heart.

I used the World's Best Trophy and the best part---it comes with 53 photopolymer stamps!!! WOWZA!!! This set is great for making ANYTHING family.

The Color Theory DSP is so versatile. I love the paper that looks like paint chips, weathered wood and color splatters.

Remember, you too, can make this card with supplies ordered from my website.
