Celebrate Sunflowers: Masking Technique

Today's card is one of the projects I did for my DOstamping Club this month.  It features the new Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle and an oldie, but goodie stamping technique called, Masking.

Masking Technique with Celebrating Sunflowers from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #stampingtechnique #celebratingsunflowers

Celebrate friendship with heartfelt sentiments and a stunning set of sunflower images from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set.  I think any of your friends would love to receive this card.  Here's how you can make it...

How'd She DO That? Sunflower Thanks Masking card

  • Stamps/Bundles:  Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle (& SAVE 10% includes Sunflower Dies)
  • Paper:
    • Whisper White Thick (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base, 1" x 3-1/2" for sentiment punch) 
    • Bumblebee (4" x 5-1/4")
    • Early Espresso (scrap for leaves die)
  • Ink:  Early Espresso, Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush (use for flower center)
  • Other:    Sunflower Dies, Gilded Gems, Stampin' Seal & Stampin' Dimensionals

Masking Technique with Celebrating Sunflowers from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #stampingtechnique #celebratingsunflowers

DOstamping Masking Instructions:

  1. Stamp large flower in lower corner of Bumblebee panel.  (NOTE:  this is when I used the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush on the center of the flower.)
  2. Stamp large flower again on lightweight paper or sticky note, fussy cut out.  This is your "mask".  Save with your stamp set.
  3. Position mask over flower on stamped panel - pulling back slightly from edge of image.
  4. Stamp leaf image on stamped panel, over the edge of the mask.
  5. Remove mask.  Now the leaf will look like it's coming out from under the flower.  Pretty cool, right?

If you want to see a demonstration on how to do the Masking Technique, check out my Virtual Catalog Open House Video.  This link is all set up to start at the time mark for the demonstration: CLICK HERE

I was so excited about how this card turned out...yay!  It's really another QC card and could be made in several different colors too.

I've been having LOTS of fun playing with the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle.   I have another project to share with you soon.  In the meantime, if sunflowers are your think, this is definitely a must-have bundle for you!  Add it to your shopping bag today.

Thank you for shopping with me!

Your Creative Connection #109: Fancy Phrases Tags

Welcome to another Your Creative Connection tour, #YCC109.  Our theme today is: Something Old, Something New

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

My something OLD is last year's 2019-2021 In Colors and my something NEW is the brand new Fancy Phrases Bundle & Butterfly Gems.  

Stampin' Up! Fancy Phrases Tags by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #stamping #papercrafting  #YCC109 #YourCreativeConnection

I actually hesitated getting the Fancy Phrases Bundle because of the large floral image would require coloring.  But as you can see...it doesn't require coloring at all.  Though - I thought about adding a swish of Wink of Stella Glitter (which I think would look fabulous)

How'd She DO That? Fancy In Color Tags (or bookmarks)

  • Stamps: Fancy Phrases Bundle
  • Paper:  Seaside Spray, Terracotta Tile, Whisper White, Rococo Rose, Purple Posy (2" x 5-1/2) 
  • Ink:  Pretty Peacock
  • OtherFancy Tag Topper Punch,  Butterfly Gems, Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon

Stampin' Up! Fancy Phrases Tags by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #stamping #papercrafting  #YCC109 #YourCreativeConnection

I have to say...for something that I hesitated getting, I found myself saying ooh and aah every time I stamped the flower image.  And the phrases are really nice.  Now the Fancy Phrases Bundle on my must-have list!  Add it to your wish list today.

Thanks for stopping by.  Be sure to check out more creativity at our next stop on Your Creative Connection tour, Barbara Meyer.

Your Creative Connection #108: Celebrate Sunflowers Sneak Peek

Welcome to another Your Creative Connection tour, #YCC108.  Our theme today is: Love is in the Air

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

Over the Memorial Day weekend, I got the chance to play with the soon-to-be-released Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set.  Oh my gosh - I'm in LOVE!  Which means, love is definitely in the air at my house!

Stampin' Up! Celebrate Sunflowers card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #YCC108 #YourCreativeConnection

How'd She DO That? Celebrate Sunflowers Card
(everything list in red is new)

  • Stamps: Celebrate Sunflowers, Lovely You Bundle (for greeting and punched label)
  • Paper:
    • Whisper White Thick (11" x 4-1/4" card base) 
    • Bumblebee (3"x 3")
    • Early Espresso (1" x 4-1/2" for punch)
  • Ink:  Early Espresso, Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush
  • OtherLovely Labels Pick a Punch,  Gilded Gems, SNAIL & Stampin' Dimensionals

Stampin' Up! Celebrate Sunflowers card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #YCC108 #YourCreativeConnection

DOstamping Tips:

  • After stamping the sunflower, use Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to move/color in the flower center (I thought this made it look more realistic)
  • To stamp the leaf, I created a "mask" of the sunflower so the flower would appear like it's showing from under the flower.
  • To create the punched layer behind the focal piece, use the soon-to-be-release Lovely Labels Pick a Punch to cut each end of the 1" x 4-1/2" piece of cardstock.  

I'm really lovin' how the combination of these fun new products came together for this quick and cute card.  I look forward to sharing my other Celebrate Sunshine cards with you soon...after the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog is released June 3.  

In the meantime, be sure to check out more creativity at our next stop on Your Creative Connection tour, Barbara Meyer.

Stampin' Up! Best Dressed Cards: This or That

OK, so...I'm having trouble deciding which one of these Best Dressed Designer Series Paper cards I like the best.  Maybe you can help.

Here's the first one I made...

Stampin' Up! Best Dressed quick & cute cards by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

For this one, I really like the combination of the Purple Posy and Blackberry Bliss.

As it only requires a half a sheet of the Best Dress 6x6 Designer Series Paper, I thought I would use up the other half, just with different coordinating colors

Stampin' Up! Best Dressed quick & cute cards by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

I have to admit that I'm not a fan of the color Petal Pink.  Having said that, I'm completely in love with the Petal Pink 5/8" Striped Organdy Ribbon.  It ties so beautifully and makes a perfect bow!  And with this DSP, the Petal Pink does tie it all together.

And the sentiment from the Dressed to Impress stamp set is just perfect - don't you think?

Now you can see why I can't decide which one I like the best.

How'd She DO That? Best Dressed QC card

  • Stamps: Dressed to Impress
  • Paper:
    • Purple Posy or Petal Pink (11" x 4-1/4" card base)
    • Blackberry Bliss or Old Olive (3-1/4" x 5-1/2")
    • Whisper White (scraps for Everyday Label Punch)
    • Best Dressed Designer Series Paper (3" x 5-1/2")
  • Ink:  Blackberry Bliss or Old Olive
  • Stampin' Blends:  
  • Other: Silver 3/8" Metallic-Edge Ribbon, Petal Pink 5/8" Striped Organdy Ribbon, SNAIL & Stampin' Dimensionals

Stampin' Up! Best Dressed quick & cute cards by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

Which one do you like the best?  This or That?

You should know...the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper is being retired.  So you'll want to stock up now, before it's gone, gone, gone.  Add it to your shopping bag today!

Stamping with the STARS #337: Paper Pumpkin Sketch

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts337.  This week we're showcasing an easy Sketch.

DOstamperSTARS Stamping with the Stars #DOswts337 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting DOstamperSTARS Stamping with the Stars #DOswts337 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #sketch

You might recognize this sketch. 

  • It's a layout I've been using a lot lately and we decided to turn it into a Stampin' with the STARS Sketch. 
  • It can be used with any Designer Series Paper and almost any stamp set.
  • It's a pretty basic layout, that does a nice job of bringing attention to the focal point of your card.

Your Creative Connection 106: Best Dressed Designer Series Paper

Welcome to another Your Creative Connection tour, #YCC106.  Our theme today is:  Your Favorite Designer Series Paper

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

I chose the Best Dress Designer Series Paper...

One of the things I like about the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper is if you're not into make-up, purses or perfume, the patterns on the other side are beautiful florals, polka dots and stripes.  Perfect for any type of card.  The pattern I'm using is my favorite!

Stampin' Up! Best Dressed card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #YCC106 #YourCreativeConnection

These cards are an adaption from my friend Julie Davison.  She recently shared a template for cutting up one sheet of 12 x 12 paper to make 11 cards.  I wanted to use 6 x 6 paper, so I came up with my own pattern to make 10 cards from (3) sheets of 6 x 6 paper.   (See TEMPLATE below)

How'd She DO That? 10 Easy Best Dressed cards

  • Stamps: Dressed to Impress
  • Paper:
    • Purple Posy (five of 11" x 4-1/4" card bases)
    • Blackberry Bliss (five of 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card bases) 
    • Whisper White (two of 3-1/4" x 4")
    • Whisper White (2-1/2" x 3-1/2")
    • Whisper White (scraps for 10 Tailored Tag Punch outs)
    • Best Dressed 6x6 Designer Series Paper (three full sheets - stack and cut at the same time)
  • Ink:  Blackberry Bliss
  • Other:  Tailored Tag Punch,  Silver 3/8" Metallic Edge Ribbon, SNAIL, Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals

I was looking over my Pinterest account the other day and noticed several popular pins.   Just in case you missed this popular one, I'm sharing it again today for a Throwback  Thursday.  

Beginner Brochure Stampin' Up! Magnolia Lane Cards Bundle by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #birthdaycards

Since then, Stampin' Up! released a Bulk version of the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper.

  • This bulk package includes two of the double-sided designs from the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper.
  • 20 sheets, 10 each of two double-sided designs
  • Coordinating Colors:  Petal Pink, Basic Black, Mossy Meadow and Whisper White,
  • Great for wedding projects, invitations, scrapbooking and cards!
