DOstamper Guest Designer

I have been chosen to be this months DOstamper Guest Designer.  Our upline Dawn Olchefske picks one demonstrator from our group each month to be the guest designer for the month.  During my month I have chosen to focus on the Fringe Scissors.  Sorry I am a little behind on posting my creations.  This is the 1st one I did for the month of April.  I will be posting the rest of my creations in the next week.

For this card I took a strip of Bermuda Bay and Fringe Cut it.  I layered it up with the best Bling a girl could ask for.....Silver Glimmer paper.  With the glimmer paper underneath the fringe, it did a peek a boo look.

As you can see I added a few more layers to the bottom of the card.  The Designer Series paper I used was one of my favorites.  Love the colors in it.  It is called "Kaleidoscope".  Hurry you can still get it before it is gone forever!!  The great star-burst design is from the Occasion Catalog that is currently out.  You can buy this as a bundle and get the framelits and the stamp set and SAVE 15%.  Can't ask for anything better than that!  I love the bundles that Stampin' Up! has come out with.  I am hoping for more with the new catalog coming out soon.

Sympathy with Color


I don't know about you...but I love challenges!!  It gets my creative juices flowing.  I think my favorite type of challenge is the color challenges.  These challenges really make you think of how you are going to layer your cardstock and what type of stamps you will use.  What is your favorite challenge?

I did this card in one of my Card Buffets that I just put on a few weeks ago.  But I did it in Elegant Eggplant cardstock and Very Vanilla.  I should have posted a picture of it so you could see it.  I will get one on here so you can see the difference it makes with just color changes.

On the Crumb Cake cardstock I used the Framed Tulips Embossing Folder.  I haven't used that folder in a long time.  I love this embossing folder because it as a WOW factor to the card.  It is also a elegant accent to the card.  Are you wondering how I did the flowers?  It is called the Thumping Technique.  It is where you take your lightest color and ink your stamp and then take 2 - 3 different shades of the Stampin' Up! markers and thump your markers on the stamp in various places.  You will then huff on your stamp and stamp to cardstock.  This is a wonderful and easy technique to use to give your project a wonderful and colorful pop!  I finished off the card with the wonderful Silver Bakers Twine.  I love this twine.  It comes in Gold or Silver.  And you can find it in the Occasions Catalog.  If you like and want only have another month before it is gone.

Picture Challenge

Welcome to another week of the DOstampers Challenge Thursday.

Sometimes the picture challenge is a CHALLENGE for me.  This one took me a while to figure out what I wanted to take out of it to create my card.  So I finally decided to take the colors and create my card.  I hope you like it!

Thinking Spring!!!

I have seen this type of card in my blog surfing and have always wanted to make one.  There are so many different punches that you could use to create such a card.  I chose the Elegant Butterfly Punch in hope that Spring will be here soon in MN.

To make this card it is pretty straight forward.  I cut my 3 different color strips to 1 x 4 1/2.  Then I punched out the Elegant Butterfly at the bottom of each strip.  I then put the Night of Navy strip and butterfly on 1st.  Followed by the Soft Sky strip and butterfly.  That way I could center the Crumb Cake strip and butterfly.  I then took my paper snips and trimmed off the overhang of the strips on the top.  This way they were all even.  I did use a dimensional on each of the butterfly's to give them a little pop!  And of course you have to add a little something to the butterfly's...I use the Pearl Basics.  

The Stampin' Up! products I used to make this card is as follows:
Cardstock & Ink
Whisper White Cardstock   100730
Crumb Cake Cardstock       120953
Soft Sky Cardstock               108639
Night of Navy Cardstock     100867
Night of Navy Ink                 126970

Stamp Set
Six Sided Sampler    Clear Mount   130956
                                    Wood Mount   130953
You can also get this in a Bundle and save 15%!
   In the bundle you would get the stamp set and the punch.
           Wood mount   132725        Clear mount   132724

Elegant Butterfly Punch     127526
Stampin Dimensionals        104430
Pearl Basic    119247

Hop on Into the Challenge

Here we are again with another DOstampers sketch challenge.   I love sketch challenges!  It is a great way to get your starting base for your cards.
The card that I made this week was cased from Mary Fish.  I also used Mary's card in a recent card Buffet that I had this past weekend.  I believe most of my customers that were there made this card.  How could you not!?!?
The Little Bunny is so stinking cute!

I really like the color combo in this card.

This little Bunny comes from a new stamp set called "Eggstra Spectacular".  You can find this set in the Occasions Catalog.  What I like about this card is the colors are soft but yet the card has a pop to it.  I normally like bold and bright colors!  The Designer Series Paper that I used is also from the Occasions Catalog.  This DSP is one of my favorite papers right now.  It is called "Watercolor Wonder Designer".  The DSP also has a stamp set that goes with it in the Occasions catalog, that is called "Happy Watercolor".  

The Stampin' Up! supplies that I used to make this card is as follows:

Cardstock & Ink
Smokey Slate      131202     Ink   131179
