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!

      3. and Silver Embossing is the "frosting on the cupcake"

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.

What did I use to create this beauty? (scroll down to bottom for complete supply list and links)

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".
  • Shimmery White: 4" x 5-1/4" 
  • Soft Sky (banner): 1-1/2" x 5"
  • Blushing Bride Glimmer: punch 2" circle

TIP: Punch banner piece first and then stamp sentiment second - which is opposite of what I usually do.



Always take the scenic route.

Card #1 with Enamel Shapes

 

Paisleys & Posies card created by Dawn Thomas #crackedpotstamper
Card #2 with Rhinestones

What did I use to create this beauty? (scroll down to bottom for complete supply list and links)

  • Stamp Set: Paisleys & Posies and Flourishing Phrases
  • Paper: Basic Black and Whisper White
  • Ink: Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise and Pumpkin Pie
  • Accessories: Enamel Shapes-Regals (card #1) and Rhinestones (card #2)
  • It's All in the Details:
    • As I was pulling out the ink pads for this project I realized that I had absolutely NO idea where my Melon Mambo ink pad is located!
    • I did a quick search in all the places I could have possibly strategically placed it (read misplaced it) beside where it belonged and I came up with NADA...no ink pad.
    • So...I improvised and it worked out pretty well.
    • Yes, that is a baby wipe and ink refill. Simply drop some ink on the wipe and use as you would if you had the ink pad.

 

Improvised Ink Pad, Dawn Thomas #crackedpotstamper
no ink pad...no problem

DOstamperSTARS Challenge #180: Moroccan Nights

Hello Friends,

The Thursday Challenge this week is a color challenge-not always the colors that I would choose or put together but I love the challenge.  

 

DSC#180 DOStamperSTARS Thursday Color My World Challenge, #crackedpotstamper, #stampinup

 

This is the project that I came up with. It is so so so NOT my usual style but I think either my style is changing or I am learning to branch out of my comfort zone.

In either case, I view it as a win-win!

WooHoo for me and you!!

  • On the banner-I stamped the large image from Moroccan Nights in Versamark to create a subtle background-it's difficult to see in the photo--but trust me it is there :o) I also lightly sponged the edges in Early Espresso ink-again to add a little dimension.
