Creative Connections

13 Halloween Creations!

Oh my, did I just name this post "13 Halloween Creations"?  That's OK.  Actually, 13 is a lucky number for me.  My birthday is August 13th.

I received most of these fabulous Halloween creations from swaps groups (DOstamperSTARS and Advisory Board Alumni).  Additionally, a few are creations that were on display at our annual Creative Connections event in September.

How'd She DO That? Video: Night in Bethlehem & Polished Stone with a Wink!

I'm so excited to share this project & video with you today.  If you're looking to make a few extra special cards for the Holidays, for those extra special people in your life...this Night in Bethlehem Bundle card is the one! 

Stampin' Up! Night in Bethlehem Bundle Polished Stone card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #rubberstamping #techniques #polishedstone #howdshedothat #christmas #christmascard #nightinbethlehem #bethlehemedgelits

For my one of Stamping Club Classes we did an oldie but goodie technique, Polished Stone...but with a twist, using the Clear Wink of Stella Brush.  I also shared it at the Creative Connections event in September and a few people have asked about a How'd She DO That? video.  So that's what I have for you today! 

Polished Stone with a Wink Technique by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #rubberstamping #techniques #polishedstone #howdshedothat

Polished Stone with a Wink Technique

The Polished Stone Technique has been around for a long time.  With the return of Glossy White Cardstock , it was a perfect time to play with it again.  It uses ink refills, rubbing alcohol, cotton balls and often times it has a "metallic" ink as well.  That's where the Clear Wink of Stella Brush comes in.  

Polished Stone with a Wink Technique by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #rubberstamping #techniques #polishedstone #howdshedothat

Add rubbing alcohol to a cotton ball along with drops of ink refill (Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder) and drops of Clear Wink of Stella Brush (squeeze hard).  Pounce repeatedly all over Glossy White Cardstock.  Let dry.  To see it in action, watch the How'd She DO That? video below.

WATCH VIDEO: Polished Stone with a Wink of Stella

 Measurements:
3-7/8" x 5-1/8" Glossy White Cardstock
4" x 5-1/4" Elegant Eggplant cardstock
5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Thick Whisper White
4" x 6" Silver Foil Sheet

It's hard to capture the glimmer that the Wink of Stella Clear Brush adds to the Polished Stone with a Wink Technique.  But in real life - it's gorgeous and your recipient will love it!  Give it a try! 

If you're looking for a special Christmas card this year, you can't go wrong with the Night of Bethlehem Bundle (save 10% with the Bethlehem Edgelits Dies). Add it to your shopping bag today!  

Enjoy~Dawn O

For the last day of my Spooky Night Suite Week, I've got 25 samples to share with you.

Fabulous Creative Connections Event!

On Sunday, myself and lots of other Minnesota Stampin' Up! leaders collaborated on a larger event experience for our team members, that we call Creative Connections.  It was our 3rd annual event and is a big hit with our teams!  Here's some of my DOstamperSTARS team members...

(my lame attempt at a selfie - ha!)  

As you can see, there are TONS of displays in the background, and LOTS more you can't see!  This event is about sharing, learning, socializing and of course...fun!  With not only displays, but speakers, presentations, stamping demonstrations and more!  Below you'll find a very small sampling of projects that were on display.

This gorgeous display was created by Beth Tetzlaff featuring the the Year of Cheer suite of products.
