Fall

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!

Note Card: Celebrations Tidings & Stampin' Blends

I've been in Thank You card mode this past week.  One of the cards I made used the Celebration Tidings stamp set from the Stampin' Up! 2020 Aug-Dec Mini Catalog.  It's a new favorite of mine!

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!

Snow Front Thanksgiving Card

Today I'm sharing Thanksgiving card featuring the Snow Front stamp set (found on pg 45 in the 2019 Holiday Catalog).

Stampin' Up! Snow Front and Day of Thanks card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #thanksgivingcards

You can create tranquil scenes with the Snow Front Stamp Set, whether it's cozy cabins with dainty deer or playful cardinals in a winter forest.  This Two-Step Stampin’ set allows you to layer two or more images to create one final image with extra texture and dimension in the colors you want. 

How'd She DO That? Snow Front Thanksgiving card

  • Stamps: Snow Front and Days of Thanks (sentiment)
  • Paper:
    • Very Vanilla Thick (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base) 
    • Very Vanilla (3-7/8" x 5-1/8" and scrap for label die)
    • Old Olive (4" x 5-1/4" and 1-1/2" x 5-1/8")
  • Ink:  Old Olive, Mango Melody, Soft Suede, Cajun Craze
  • Other:  Stitched Nested Labels Dies, Subtle 3D Embossing Folder, SNAIL & Stampin' Dimensionals

Stampin' Up! Snow Front and Day of Thanks card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #thanksgivingcards

DOstamping Tips:

  • It's hard to see in the photo, but after stamping the greeting, add texture with the Subtle embossing folder
  • To create even more texture and varying colors, use the "stamping off" technique method of stamping.
    • Stamping Off = stamping same image two or more times without re-inking in between.

So don't let the name of this stamp set fool you.  Snow Front can be used for several seasons, that you'll find yourself reaching for it all-year long. Add it to your shopping bag today!

Thank you for shopping with me!

Enjoy~Dawn O

Easy Thanksgiving Card with Stampin' Up!'s Gather Together set

Here's a card we made at my Stamp-a-Stack class last night using the Gather Together stamp set.  And it was a hit with my stampers!

I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest with "wheat" stamping and put my own twist on the card.  Take a look...

Easy Stampin' Up! Gather Together card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #thanksgiving

How'd She DO That? Harvest Wheat card

  • Stamps: Gather Together & Country Home 
  • Paper:
    • Merry Merlot (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base) 
    • Very Vanilla  (2-3/4" x 5-1/2", 1/2" x 5-1/2")
    • Crushed Curry (2-7/8" x 5-1/2")
  • Ink:  Terracotta Tile, Merry Merlot, Crushed Curry 
  • Other:  Designer Elements & SNAIL

Easy Stampin' Up! Gather Together card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #thanksgiving

DOstamping Tips:

  • For stamping the wheat images, I recommend:
    • start with stamping both ends with Terracotta Tile ink
    • then stamp in the center with Merry Merlot
    • then fill in between by stamping wheat upside down with Crushed Curry ink  

The Country Home stamp set was used for the greeting.  It has several images that would compliment nicely with the Gather Together stamp set

The Designer Elements were added last.  They are a nice finishing touch and they have a lower profile for ease of mailing.

Add them to your shopping bag today, so loved ones near and far will feel your love and appreciation when they receive this hand-stamped card from you.  

Enjoy~Dawn O

Apple Builder Punch: Pumpkin & Mercury Glass Designer Acetate

Today I'm sharing a couple of new products from the 2019 Holiday Catalog...Apple Builder Punch and the Mercury Glass Designer Acetate.

What happens when you combine the Apple Builder Punch to create beautiful die-cut apples (or pumpkins) for your projects with Mercury Glass Designer Acetate featuring a faux mercury glass finish on acetate sheets?

DOstamping Tips:

  1. The Mercury Glass Designer Acetate is rather thick.  DO NOT cut narrow strips (to save on paper) when punching out shapes using the Apple Builder Punch.  Be sure to punch all three shapes at the same time (apple/pumpkin, stem & leaf) to extend the life of your punch.
  2. Tips for assembling acetate pumpkin:
    1. adhere acetate to same shape of Come to Gather Designer Series Paper (I used the white pumpkins with Pretty Peacock leaves - but you can use any color/pattern behind the acetate.)
    2. adhere leaves trinket with glue dot
    3. tie off 2-1/4" piece of Crumb Cake ribbon with coordinating Cajun Craze linen thread - in a bow.  Adhere with glue dot.
    4. flip pumpkin over and adhere stem with glue dot on the backside.

The Mercury Glass Designer Acetate will add a touch of vintage shimmer to all your projects this season.  Don't forget to get the Apple Builder Punch so you can create a bushel or two of beautiful die-cut apples (or pumpkins) for your projects. Add these seasonal favorites to your shopping bag today!

Enjoy~Dawn O

Stampin' Up! Beauty & Joy: Easy Spotlight Card

Today I'm sharing a card that made me smile when I made it...love it when that happens.  First off, I'm using a new 2019 Holiday Catalog stamp set called, Beauty & Joy.  

2019 Holiday Catalog Beauty & Joy stamp set, with EASY Spotlight Technique by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

This Distinktive* stamp set has a special texture that gives added depth and dimension in a single step, creating photo-realistic images.  The basket particularly shows off the Distinktive style. 

How'd She DO That? Beauty & Joy Spotlight card

  • Stamps: Beauty & Joy
  • Paper:
    • Crumb Cake (8-1/2" x 4-1/4" card base) 
    • Very Vanilla (3-1/2" square)
    • Early Espresso (3-5/8" square)
  • Ink:  Crushed Curry, Terracotta Tile, Soft Suede, Early Espresso
  • Other:   Sponge Daubers, Stitched Rectangle Dies, Linen Thread, SNAIL, Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals

2019 Holiday Catalog Beauty & Joy stamp set, with EASY Spotlight Technique by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

DOstamping Tips:

  1. I recommend stamping the images from the bottom, building to the top.
  2. For the leaves, ink stamp first with Crushed Curry.  Before stamping, use a Sponge Dauber to add Terracotta Tile ink randomly to the leaves.  Breathe on stamp to re-moisten and then stamp.
  3. Stamp sentiment slightly overlapping leave image.
  4. To create the "spotlight" - die cut sentiment with Stitched Rectangle Die.
  5. When assembling card - adhere sentiment last with Stampin' Dimensionals.

2019 Holiday Catalog Beauty & Joy stamp set, with EASY Spotlight Technique by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

When I first started stamping this card, I wasn't sure what direction I was going.  I thought I'd add the sentiment as a separate layer.  But I didn't want it to cover up the two-toned leaves.  Then the idea hit me..."spotlight" the sentiment.  It was the perfect way to step-up this card just a little bit.  And...it was a hit at my club class last week!

Your day with bloom with beauty and joy as you create amazing projects using the Beauty & Joy Stamp Set.  I definitely recommend adding it to your Shopping Bag today!

Enjoy~Dawn O
