Your Creative Connection #YCC117: Poinsettia Dies

Welcome to another Your Creative Connection tour, #YCC117.  Our theme today is: Dies to Die For

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

As I've been playing with the Poinsettia Place Suite lately, it was a natural choice to select the Poinsettia Dies for my project today.

It's hard to see in the photo, but the petals have embossed lines on them.  

At first glance at the dies, I was concerned about the process for cutting and embossing.  Do I have to cut first, then emboss afterwards?  The answer is no!  They cut and emboss at the same time.   See tips below.

DOstamping Tips for Poinsetta Dies:

  1. Place all 7 dies on a 5-1/2" square of cardstock.  Nest the matching "emboss" dies inside the large shape dies. 
  2. I was excited to cut/embossed all four petal sizes at the same time.  Phfew - what a time saver!
  3. Adhere flowers together with Stampin' Seal &/or Mini Glue Dots.
  4. Adhere Beaded Pearls to the center with Mini Glue Dots.

348

I chose the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper...now on sale for 15% off!

Then I realized I didn't have the stamp set - what?!  No problem, there are lots of other holiday stamp sets to choose from...like Tags Tags Tags (with the coordinating Trio of Tags Dies).

How'd She DO That? Snowflake Splendor card

  • Stamps/Bundle: Tags Tags Tags
  • Paper:
    • Highland Heather (4-1/4" x 11" card base)
    • Balmy Blue (3-3/4" x 5")

DOstamping Tips:

  • If you take a closer look at the sentiment tag - you'll see I used two colors.  Cool, huh?
  • Ink the stamp up with Highland Heather ink.  The use a Sponge Dauber to add Pacific Point ink on the words.  Some ink will overlap onto the other areas, but that gives it a fun look.
  • Breathe on your stamp to remoisten, then stamp on scrap of Whisper White and die cut.

Be sure to check out all of the Designer Series Papers on Sale for 15% off this month.  Add your favorites to your shopping cart and SAVE today!

Thank you for shopping with me!

Poinsettia Petals Bundle: Casual to Avid Stamper Which are You?

Today I'm sharing...3 cards (a casual, an avid and a stepped up avid) from one design with the Poinsettia Petals Bundle. 

Stampin' Up! Poinsettia Petals Bundle shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

  • These cards were created & shared by Stampin' Up!
  • Each week demonstrators receive a newsletter from Stampin' Up! with project ideas, business tips and more. 
  • Just another perk of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator!

Aren't they GORGEOUS!?  

And...as this is Poinsettia Place Suite Month here at DOstamping with Dawn...I thought I'd share them with you.

Let's get busy...

Stampin' Up! Poinsettia Petals Bundle shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

Option #1 Poinsettia Petals Bundle:  for the CASUAL stamper:

  • Stamp sprig images on Cinnamon Cider card front in Cinnamon Cider ink
  • On Whisper White cardstock, stamp flower in Real Red ink and leaves in Shaded Spruce ink.
    • To create depth, for the 2-step stamp images - stamp off on a scratch paper first.  
  • Die cut stamped images and adhere them to card front
  • Stamp sentiment in Cinnamon Cider ink on a Whisper White cardstock label, adhere the label to card using Stampin' Dimensionals.

You have a fabulously festive card in just minutes!

 

Stampin' Up! Poinsettia Petals Bundle shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

Option #2 Poinsettia Petals Bundle:  for the AVID stamper:

  • Step up this card by adhering an angled piece of Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper to the front.
  • Then adhere piece of Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack ribbon on the angle.  TIP:  Fold the ribbon in half lengthwise before cutting the notches on each end.
  • Color poinsettia and leaves using Cinnamon Cider, Poppy Parade, Real Red and Shaded Spruce Stampin' Blends.
  • Add sprig die cut from Copper Foil Sheet using Poinsettia Dies.

 

 

Stampin' Up! Poinsettia Petals Bundle shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

Option #3 Poinsettia Petals Bundle:  the "stepped-up" AVID version

So...which style of stamping describes you best?  Option 1,2 or 3?  Share in the comments.

For me - I lean towards Option #1 or #2.

Now's the time of year to be thinking about your Holiday Card Making.  If the Poinsettia Petals Bundle speaks to you (it definitely speaks to me!), you'll want to add it to your cart so you can get a start on your holiday cards right away.

Thank you for shopping with me!

Enjoy~Dawn O

Your Creative Connection #YCC115: Masking Dove of Hope

Welcome to another Your Creative Connection tour, #YCC115.  Our theme today is: What's Behind the Mask

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

What's Behind the Mask?   For this week's theme we could make a project using any of the following: masking, create your own mask or Stampin' Up! Decorative Masks. I chose the masking technique.   The Dove of Hope is a great stamp set to feature this technique.

Masked Dove of Hope card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #stamping #papercrafting  #YCC115 #YourCreativeConnection #christimascards

Masked Dove of Hope card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #stamping #papercrafting  #YCC115 #YourCreativeConnection #christimascardsDOstamping Masking Tips:

  1. On Very Vanilla piece, stamp sentiment at bottom.   Stamp dove image leaving space for the branch and area for ribbon.
  2. Create a "mask" for dove by stamping dove on scratch paper and fussy cut out. 
  3. Place mask over stamped dove.
  4. Stamp branch image over dove mask.
  5. Remove mask.
  6. Finish off by using Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to move color around on the leaves.

Take a closer look:

  • I was looking for a Designer Series Paper to coordinate with the Dove of Hope stamp set.
  • I was giddy when I recalled that the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper carried over from last year- yay!
  • It's the perfect match - don't you think?

Stamping with the STARS #343: NEW Plaid Tiding Suite Sketch

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Stamping with the STARS Inspiration Hop #DOswts342.  This week we're sharing a Sketch inspiration.

I love sketches!  They are like a map for cardmaking and help me stretch my creative muscle in ways that I may not have tried.   Here's my take on today's sketch.

Sketch card made with the NEW Plaid Tidings Suite (coming 8/3/20) by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #343 #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #DOswts343 #DOstamperSTARS #christmascards #sketch

I used some products from NEW Aug-Dec Mini Catalog Suite called Plaid Tidings, (Celebration Tidings stamp set & Plaid Tidings 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper - available August 4, 2020)

How'd She DO That? Christmas Tidings Sketch card

  • Stamps: Celebration Tidings
  • Paper:
    • Cherry Cobbler (11" x 4-1/4" card base) 
    • Whisper White (3-1/4" x 4-1/2")  
    • Shaded Spruce (1" x 2-3/4" for the new Banners Pick a Punch)
    • Plaid Tidings 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper (3-1/2" x 4-3/4")
  • Ink:  Shaded Spruce, Versamark, Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends Combo (Dark), Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush
  • Other:   Banner Pick a Punch, Wonder of the Season Ribbon Combo Pack,  White Stampin' Emboss Powder, Heat Tool, Stampin' Seal  & Stampin' Dimensionals

DOstamping  Coloring Tips:

  • Stamp "pine bough" image twice with Shaded Spruce ink.
  • Move color around on leaves with Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.  (Adds both color and glimmer at the same time - love it!)
  • Use fine tip end of the dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blend Marker to "dot" the berries.

After it all came together, this card brought a smile to my face.  I didn't think I was ready to make Christmas cards, but this really put me in the mood!

Be sure to add the Plaid Tiding Suite to your Aug-Dec 2020 Mini Catalog wish list.  You'll find lots of uses for it for the upcoming holidays (Halloween to Valentine's Day).

I had so much fun playing with this month's kit.  See below for three easy Paper Pumpkin Winter Gifts alternate projects...

Birdhouse ornament with Paper Pumpkin November Winter Gifts Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin

Birdhouse Ornament

With last month's Paper Pumpkin kit, the envelopes had a printed wood pattern.  The flap reminded me of a roof.  So, I was excited to find a large bird die in this month's kit and created a fun birdhouse ornament.

DOstamping Tips:

  • Envelope paper (from October's Paper Pumpkin kit): 3" x 3-1/2", plus flap for roof (cut off adhesive edges), then trim down to about 2" tall.
  • Cut large hole in center of rectangle piece.  I used 1-7/8" Stitched Shape Circle, but a 2" Circle Punch could work too.
  • Poppy Parade:  adhere 1/2" strips to "rooftop", trim as needed.  Then adhere roof to rectangle piece.
  • Early Espresso:  2-7/8"  x 5-1/4" piece to back of birdhouse.  Trim off roof edges.
  • Decorate as desired

Winter Gifts Sled Card

This card couldn't be easier to make.   Adhere die cuts to 4" x 5-1/4" white panel and then to 4-1/4" x 11" folded Paper Parade card base.  The small bird die cut and sentiment are from last month's Winter Woods Paper Pumpkin kit (stamped with Early Espresso).

Deer Snowflake Card

This turned out to be one of my favorite alternates this month.  The design came together quickly and was exactly what I had in mind (that doesn't always happen - lol).

DOstamping Tips:

  • Adhere 4" x 5-1/4" (October Winter Woods envelope paper) to 11" x 4-1/4" folded Whisper White Thick cardstock
  • Cut a 2-3/8" Stitched Shape circle from center of tag.  Adhere to  a 2-3/4" x 3-1/4" piece of Pool Party cardstock.
  • Sentiment is from last month's Winter Woods Paper Pumpkin kit (stamped with Real Red).
  • Decorate as desired.
