DOstamper STARS DOswts339 Sketch & Hop

Saturday, May 30, 2020



This week has been full of turmoil in the Twin Cities. Just as we were starting to peek outside our doors, storm clouds entered again. It may seem a bit trivial, but making and sharing cards has been a source of calm. I started this umbrella card before last weekend, but it seems so appropriate now. I'm happy to keep connecting with friends through sharing of cards. 

I hope you enjoy this weeks hop! Below is the sketch that we followed! Save it because it's a great and easy sketch to adapt to lots of stamp sets!


I made the umbrella by stamping the umbrella onto a scrap of whisper white cardstock. I then stamped several of the flower images from the set and colored them in with Stampin' Blends markers. I trimmed off the white border. I then punched the umbrella out on a second scrap. I adhered the stamped and colored piece over the punched piece. 

The upside down umbrellas was punched and colored as usual.

Small Gift Packaging #doswts327

Saturday, November 23, 2019

Happy Saturday! Today's blog hop theme is "Anything But A Card!" I used the Stampin' Up! mini pizza boxes to create a box suitable for a small gift, gift card or baked treat. They are about 3 1/2" square, which fits a surprising number of things! (the average gift card is 2 1/8" x 3 3/8" by the way!)

I used the white pizza box but the gold ones are also beautiful! (see below). The inside is coated with a food safe plastic. 

The white mini pizza boxes have a flat white finish, so you can stamp, ink and embellish the outside of the box!

I used items from the Holly Jolly Mini Suite and the Night Before Christmas 6" x 6" paper to decorate the outside of the box. If you look closely, you can see the pearlized doily and stitched green circle in the background. I colored the stocking with Stampin' Blends and cut them out with the Jolly Season dies. 

If you enjoy coloring, the Holly Jolly Christmas set has perfect images for coloring, including a giant Santa!
