Not only are these cards outstanding, but what a nice variety of cards to have received.  Our next swap deadline is approaching fast.   I can't wait to see them and also share them with you!

Swapping with the STARS is an optional activity for my team.  Even though everyone is invited to participate, only a few join in the fun of swapping.  That's the beauty of the DOstamperSTARS. 

  • You can pick and choose what you'd like to be involved with. 
  • Either way, the STARS are a fabulous group of stampers who share and support each other.
  • Join my DOstamperSTARS Team -$99 Starter Kit, Get $125 in product 

PLUS, right now, you can choose Aug-Dec 2020 Catalog product for your start kit merchandise!  That's right, it's been revealed for demonstrators.  That's one of the perks of joining!

Your Creative Connection #YCC111: Forever Greenery Corset Tag Card

Welcome to another Your Creative Connection tour, #YCC111.  Our theme today is: Tag You're It

Your Creative Connection - a bi-monthly tour showcasing Stampin' Up! product

For today's showcase, I went waaay back into the "vault" and pulled out a memory of a card style I enjoyed making in 2004! 

Stampin' Up!  Forever Greenery Corset Tag Card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #stamping #papercrafting  #YCC111 #YourCreativeConnection #corsetcard

Back then, it was called a "Corset Card" and I found the inspiration in a magazine (that I don't recall right now).  You used two shipping tags to create the corset.   Now, with all of Stampin' Up!'s tag punches, there are lots of choices to make a Corset Tag card. 

How'd She DO That? Forever Greenery Corset Tag Card 

  • Stamps:  Fancy Phrases (Bundle & SAVE 10% with Fancy Tag Topper Punch)
  • Paper
    • Old Olive  (4-1/4" x 11" card base)
    • Whisper  White (scrap for sentiment tag)
    • Pretty Peacock (two of 2" x 5-1/2" for "corset tags") 
    • Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper (4" x 5-1/4")
  • Ink:  Pretty Peacock
  • Other:  Greenery Embossing Folders, Delightful Tag Topper Punch, Label Me Fancy Punch, 3/8" Old Olive/Pretty Peacock Reversible Ribbon,  Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack, Stampin' Seal, Stampin' Dimensionals

Stampin' Up!  Forever Greenery Corset Tag Card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #stamping #papercrafting  #YCC111 #YourCreativeConnection #corsetcard

DOstamping Tips:

  • Cut one end of each of the two of 2" x 5-1/2" Pretty Peacock strips with the Delightful Tag Topper Punch 
  • Add texture to both tags with the Greenery Embossing Folder (preserve the hole/tag ends).  
  • Layout tags over your card with tag ends facing each other.  Thread ribbon through both holes and tie in a bow.
  • Wrap tag ends around to the back side and adhere to together.  (NOTE: corset should be snug, but loose enough to slide off).

Two-Toned Field of Flowers for Summer

Looking for a quick & cute summer card?

The simply beautiful Field of Flowers Stamp Set makes it easy to give your loved ones hand-stamped cards featuring a summer vibe.  

Stampin' Up! Field of Flowers card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting
Get out your Sponge Daubers to easily give these flowers a more realistic look.   Be sure to check out a couple of DOstamping Tips for this card - see below.

How'd She DO That? Field of Flowers card

  • Stamps:  Field of Flowers, Lovely You 
  • Paper:
    • Whisper White Thick (5-1/2" x 8-1/2" card base)
      Whisper White (scrap for label die)
      Petal Pink (4" x 5-1/4")
      Just Jade (1-3/4" x 5-1/4")
  • Ink: Just Jade, Petal Pink, Calypso Coral
  • Other:  Tasteful Labels Dies, Greenery Embossing Folders, Elegant Faceted Gems, Sponge Daubers,  Stampin' Seal & Stampin' Dimensionals

Stampin' Up! Field of Flowers card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting

DOstamping Tips:

  • For the two-tone flower image, ink flowers with Petal Pink ink.  Before stamping, use a Sponge Dauber to add Calypso Coral ink to the flower centers.  Then stamp.
  • To get vertical texture on the entire strip of Just Jade - add texture to one end of the strip and then again on the other end.   
  • Adhere the stamped label die cut to card with Stampin' Dimensionals, covering the "seam" created by the texture embossing.

The Field of Flowers stamp set is also available in a bundle with the Confetti Flowers Border - 154108 SAVE 10%.   With it's variety of "builder sentiments", you'll find lots of uses for it.  Add it to your shopping bag today!
