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.

  • 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)

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.

Stampin' Up! Field of Flowers card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting

DOstamping Tips:

  • For the two-tone flower image, ink flowers with Petal Pink ink.  Before stamping, use a Sponge Dauber to add Calypso Coral ink to the flower centers.  Then stamp.
  • To get vertical texture on the entire strip of Just Jade - add texture to one end of the strip and then again on the other end.   
  • Adhere the stamped label die cut to card with Stampin' Dimensionals, covering the "seam" created by the texture embossing.

The Field of Flowers stamp set is also available in a bundle with the Confetti Flowers Border - 154108 SAVE 10%.   With it's variety of "builder sentiments", you'll find lots of uses for it.  Add it to your shopping bag today!

More Masked Celebrate Sunflowers

Here's another Celebrate Sunflowers masking technique card.  This time using Stampin' Blends to color the beautiful sunflowers! 

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

How'd She DO That? Sunflower Celebrate Masking card

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

DOstamping Masking Instructions:

  1. On the Whisper White panel, stamp smaller sunflower image near the right edge/center. (shown as the 3rd flower from the bottom).
  2. Create masks: on sticky notes, stamp flower and leaf images, then fussy cut each one out separately.
  3. Use sticky note flower mask to cover stamped flower (pull slightly away from image), then stamp leaf as shown. Repeat for stamping flower/leaves above & below the first image. Then again for top & bottom images
  4. Color with Stampin’ Blends.

This Celebrate Sunflowers card made me feel like an artist.  With the right tools & technique, you can feel that way too.  Give masking a try, then color your images with Stampin' Blends!

This stamp set also comes in a bundle...Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle.   Add it to your shopping bag today.

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.

Simple Ornate Garden in Terracotta Tile

Today I'm sharing another Ornate Garden Suite card.  Take a look...

Stampin' Up! Ornate Garden Suite shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting 

It's a simple card, but your recipient will ooh & aah when they get it.  Why? Because of the coloring with the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.  It's hard to see in the photo.  But trust me, it shimmers and shines!

How'd She DO That? Simple Ornate Garden card

  • Stamps/Bundles:  Ornate Thanks (Bundle & SAVE 10% with Ornate Border Dies), Ornate Style
  • Paper:
    • Terracotta Tile (11" x 4-1/4" card base) 
    • Whisper White (4" x 5-1/4")
    • Ornate Garden Designer Series Paper (1" x 4")
  • Ink: Terracotta Tile, Early Espresso
  • Other:  Ornate Border Dies, Click Wink of Stella Glitter Brush, Gilded Gems & SNAIL

DOstamping Tips:

  • Does this card look a little familiar?  Just turn it to landscape and you'll get this card I shared last week.
  • Besides the similar layout, I only colored the flowers on today's card, but only the leaves on the other card (to change it up a little).

Simple but stunning Ornate Garden card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #ornategarden

Not sure which one I like best.  How about you...Do you like the Terracotta Tile or the Old Olive card best?  Let me know.

With either one, you'll have an ooh & aah card that will get the attention of anyone.  Check out the Ornate Garden Suite of products, and add your favorites to your shopping bag today!

Enjoy~Dawn O
