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.

One last thing…

A friend of mine recently posed a question via social media and I'd like to know your answer to the same question.

What do YOU call the candies on top of this donut?  

Jimmies or Sprinkles?

I grew up in the midwest and we call them "sprinkles".

DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge No. 223: Moon Baby Quilt

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 #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.

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



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.
