Your Creative Connection #YCC113: Autumn Punch Pack

Welcome to another Your Creative Connection tour, #YCC113.  Our theme today is: How Tiny is This?

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

It's all about small stamps &/or dies today.  I selected the NEW Autumn Punch Pack.  Fall is my favorite time of the year.  The smells, colors and cooler temperatures - I love everything about it.  So, of course, I love the NEW Gilded Autumn Suite of products too!

W Fun Fold card by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #344 #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #DOswts344 #DOstamperSTARS #GildedAutumn

If you're like most papercrafters, you probably like Fun Fold cards.  However, sometimes the first look at a fun fold might have you saying, "no way".   I get it - that happens with me too.  Today's W Fun Fold has been on my list to make for quite some time and today is the day!  

With the Gilded Autumn Suite of products, it came together surprisingly quick.  Take a look...

DOstamping Tips:

  • Assemble DSP & Cajun Craze squares and adhere to Cajun Craze scored strip.
  • Add a piece of Tear & Tape Adhesive to each end of the strip.  Fold strip in half and adhere one end down to inside card base.  Then fold card base over the strip to adhere the other end down.

  • Lastly, finish off with a variety of Autumn Punch Pack shapes cut from the Brushed Metallic cardstock.  
  • Tip for acorn:  Punch one from BOTH the darkest and lightest metallic cardstock.  Trim off the top of the acorn from the dark one and adhere to light one with a glue dot.

The W Fun Fold card was exactly that...FUN!

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.

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 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).

Your Creative Connection #YCC112: Peony Garden Fun Fold

Welcome to another Your Creative Connection tour, #YCC112.  Our theme today is: Return to the Fold

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

If you're anything like me, you might have a love affair with Fun Fold cards!  I prefer the less intricate ones, like this Middle Panel Fun Fold card.

Stampin' Up!  Prized Peony Bundle Fun Fold Card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #stamping #papercrafting  #YCC112 #YourCreativeConnection

This fun fold card style has been making the rounds for awhile now and I've been waiting to make.  So today's the day!  I got out the Peony Garden Suite and got to playing around.

How'd She DO That? Peony Garden Middle Panel Fun Fold Card 

  • Stamps:  Prized Peony(Bundle & SAVE 10% with Peony Dies)
  • Paper
    • Petal Pink (5-1/4" x 5-1/2" card base, 4" x 4", 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" for die cutting)
    • Whisper  White (4-1/4" x 5-1/2", 3" x 3-3/4")
    • Gray Granite (scraps for leaf die cuts)
    • Peony Garden Designer Series Paper (two of 1" x 4")
  • Ink:  Gray Granite, Petal Pink
  • Other:  Sponge Daubers, Peony Dies, Gray Granite 1/4" Shimmer Ribbon,  Elegant Faceted Gems, Mini Glue Dots, Stampin' Seal,

Stampin' Up!  Prized Peony Bundle Fun Fold Card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #stamping #papercrafting  #YCC112 #YourCreativeConnection

DOstamping Tips:

  • Score 5-1/4" x 5-1/2" card base at 4-1/4" along the 5-1/2" side (when folded it should measure 4-1/2" x 5-1/2")
  • Adhere DSP strips to both ends of 4" x 5-1/4" white panel, then adhere to inside of card.
  • Stamp sentiment in upper left corner of smaller white piece, then adhere to 4" square pink panel.  (NOTE:  there will be extra space at the top of the pink panel).  Adhere the "extra space" area to inside the flap - center and line up bottom to bottom of card.  (NOTE:  there will be a slight gap between the folded score edge and this panel).  Wrap ribbon around the flap and tie in a knot.
  • Die cut the 5 pieces for the peony flower from 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece of pink and 3 leaves from Gray Granite scrap.  Add ink to petals with a sponge dauber to give the flower depth.  Saving the stamen for last, tuck each flower die cut inside each other, starting with the smallest.  Only adhere each piece at the bottom.  Optional:  use bone flower to curve petals.  Add stamen last.  Adhere flower & leaves to card front with glue dots.
  • Optional: decorate inside.

Nothing's Better Than meets Happiest of Birthdays! (and Video)

I'm excited about sharing today's card, as it was a card both my grandson, Max and I made together.  He picked out the bundle, Nothing's Better Than, and then we started playing!  

As he turned 13 this spring (yes, he's now a teenager - wow!) - I was actually surprised (but delighted) he still wanted to craft with me.  And, since he is only 13, we called it a pink lemonade card

He also wanted to make sure I tell you all that he helped design the card.  Even at 13 - he melts my heart (in between the moody teen times - ha)!  Here's what we came up with...

Nothing's Better Than from Stampin' Up! - card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #happiestofbirthdays

DOstamping It's Your Day Pink Lemonade card:

  • Stamps/Bundles: Nothing's Better Than Bundle, Happiest of Birthdays
  • Paper:
    • Flirty Flamingo (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base) 
    • Whisper White (3 x 4-1/4", scrap for cocktail die)
    • Playing with Patterns Designer Series Paper (both strips 3/4" x 5-1/4")
  • Ink:  Tuxedo Black Memento, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Coastal Cabana
  • Other:  Love You More Than Dies, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Stampin' Seal & Stampin' Dimensionals

Nothing's Better Than from Stampin' Up! - card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #happiestofbirthdays

I really liked the way the Nothing's Better Than stamp set went with the greeting from the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set.  To see how it all came together, be sure to check out my How'd She DO That? video.  It showcases THREE birthday cards, including this one:

I think both of the Nothing's Better Bundle and Happiest of Birthdays stamp set are must-have for any stampers collection.  For me - I'll be reaching for both of them all-year long!  Add them to your shopping bag today so you can craft with me.

Thank you for shopping with me!
