DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge No. 234: Colorful Seasons-2017/18 In-Colors

Time for the DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge, this week it is a "Product Spotlight" Challenge, featuring the new In-Colors for 2017/2018.

This week I was inspired by these 5 GORGEOUS new In-Colors…I absolutely love each of them.

DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge No. 234-Product Spotlight

I love the simple elegance of this card. It is quick and easy but the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper gives this sweet card a touch of elegance.

This paper reminds me of the fancy wallpaper patterns I would see while flipping through those gigantic wallpaper sample books, that weighed as much as a small child, to occupy myself (for what felt like hours) while my mom did her shopping.

DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge #221: Basket Builder Framelits-Love My Peeps

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #221

Time for the DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge, this week it is a "Home Sweet Home" Challenge. 

This picture reminds of one of the many things that I love about the Easter season…

C-A-N-D-Y!!

  • marshmallow bunnies (but they have to be a little stale and crunchy)
  • mini robin's eggs
  • chocolate eggs
  • chocolate bunnies
  • pretty much anything that is chocolatey or pastel colored.

Love My Peeps Basket Builder Framelits card created by Dawn Thomas for DSC#221 #crackedpotstamper

I love the colors and glimmer included on this card. 


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

Stamp Set: Sunshine Sayings and Hardwood

Paper: Sale-a-Bration Glimmer Paper Assortment Pack, Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper, Sweet Sugarplum, Tip Top Taupe, Whisper White 

Ink: Tip Top Taupe

Accessories: Basket Builder Framelits, Sunshine Wishes Thinlits, Layering Oval Framelits, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Burlap Ribbon

It's All in the Details: the fantastic thing about this card is that there is very little stamping…it is mostly layering images that have been die cut.

  • The Hardwood background was stamped off once – to create a subtle image
  • The Designer Series Paper was cut on the diagonal to give the gingham a different look. And I like it!
  • I die cut the word love four times (3 from whisper white plus 1 from Sweet Sugarplum), adhered them together with the Fine-Tip Glue pen AND then added a thick layer of glue on top of the Sweet Sugarplum layer to give it an embossed and glossy look.
