DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #287-Patriotic Painted Glass

DSC#287

 

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

Animal Outing Filmstrip

Hi Stampers,

When I went to OnStage in April of this year one of the stamp sets we got in our goodie bag was Animal Outing. I loved it from the first time I saw it. It was on my wish list for SU to come out with a new zoo animal stamp set and I was pleasantly surprised to find this stamp set in my bag.  Starting this week I want to highlight a stamp set each week with different card ideas/3D projects during each day for that week.

I also paired it with the new Stained Glass Thinlits to look like a filmstrip. I diecut two of the long strips and laid them horizontally. I also used a new in color Pineapple Punch with the matching DSP and the new leaf ribbon.

Lots to Love Box 3D Lemonade Stand

Hi Stampers,

First of all, don't forget Sale-A-Bration will be ending at the end of this month--which is at the end of next week!!! EEEKKK!!! That went by way too fast!!! Can I ask something of you? I am close to meeting my goal I set for Sale-A-Bration but not quite there yet. Would you help me out and go to my website and place your order before next week? I would truly appreciate it!!

Now, for today's blog post. Playing with the Lemon Zest stamp set and Lemon Builder punch last week, I came up with the cute idea of making my own Lemonade Stand out of the Lots to Love Box Die. All you need to do is cut 2 of the box framelits only take one of the die cuts and cut off the tabs so the top is open. Then, take a layering square framelit and cut out the opening. Stamp with the Hardwood stamp. Put box together and decorate. I put in 2 of the Crystal Light drink mixes in mine. Isn't this cute? I used the Colorful Seasons stamp to make the little lemons and limes banner.

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 #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!!!!

Remember you can order off of my website to make your own Tootsie Pop Pumpkin holder (say that 3 times fast) LOL  in my online store.


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.

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #237-Window Box Thinlits Lantern

#237

Hi Stampers,

I really like the patriotic colors in the above photo. In staying with the theme, I chose to make a paper lantern out of the window box thinlits. The first one I made I also cut Whisper White pieces to go on the lantern and it made it a little heavy. It would be great to be hung up but not sitting on a table.

This is the second one and I only made one window box "frame" for the bottom. I also didn't attach a second layer of cardstock. You could attach string to the top to hang it or just use as a table decoration.

These are the cute little battery operated tealights I found at Dollar Tree.

Wishing you an early safe Fourth of July!!!
