DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge No. 230: Moroccan Nights Shine

DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge #230-Product Spotlight: Retiring Stamps shared by Dawn Thomas #crackedpotstamper

Time for the DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge, this week it is a "Product Spotlight" Challenge, featuring retiring stamps. 

This week I was inspired by saying farewell to some of my OLD favorites while making room for my NEW favorites.

Reminds me of the song we sang at Girl Scout camp, "make new friends but keep the old, one is silver and the other is gold".

That being sang, hmm I mean said, I love the silver sparkle of this card. This card was my daughter's high school graduation announcement-beautiful and sparkly just like her!

DOSstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge No. 223-sketch pad #crackedpotstamper

Time for the DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge, this week it is a "Sketch Pad" Challenge. 

This week I was inspired by quilts. I saw this sketch and it reminded me of the quilts my grandmother made for each of us.

I love the colors and the sweet little sparkly creatures  on this card. Bunnies and lambs and bears, oh my!

Yes I know the plural for more than one lamb is sheep but that didn't flow as well...so I opted for lambs.

DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge #220: Celebrating You

Time for Thursday Challenge - Woo Hoo!!

This week it is a "Color My World" Challenge.

This is the Inspiration.

Stampin' Up! DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge #220

And this is my interpretation.

If this card looks familiar to you, it is because I chose to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) the cattie. 

I absolutely loved the original (which you can find on page 11 of the 2017 Occasions catalog) and I knew immediately that I had to recreate it with a few minor changes.

BTW, if you don't have the catalog and you want one, please leave me a comment and I will mail one out to you.

Stampin' Up! DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge #220 card created by Dawn Thomas #crackedpotstamper

Stamp Set: Birthday Blast

Paper: Sahara Sand, Soft Sky, Shimmery White and Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper

Ink: Soft Sky

Accessories: Metallic Foil Doilies, Blushing Bride Baker's Twine, Enamel Shapes-Subtles and Rhinestones

It's All in the Details: Less is more, I kept it very simple.

  • Sahara Sand:  5-1/2" x 8-1/2"-scored & folded at 4-1/4".

Always take the scenic route.
