HSDT Video: Painted Blooms Mini Treat Bags Window Card

Stamping Club Members had fun playing with the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits last month. Though, I think the hardest part of the project was deciding which pattern to choose from the Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper.  They are all gorgeous!  

Painted Blooms Mini Treat Bag Window Card created by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup

For the club project, we actually made them into cards using the Sale-A-Bration Nature's Perfection stamp set.  A single panel pulls out to reveal the stamping (and of course, your message on the back).  Guess what...these fit into a Stampin' Up! MediumEnvelope [107301].  For today's cards, I'm using the Painted Petals stamp set!

I can't decide which is my favorite.  They are all so pretty!  If you haven't made a Mini Treat Bag yet, "What are you waiting for?"  These bags are so cute, and super quick & easy to make!

Inspiration

I'm often asked, "Where DO you get your ideas Dawn?".  Inspiration comes from a lot of places.  Whether it's a magazine (like the Stampin' Success for demonstrators), nature, a trip to the shopping mall...probably one of my favorite places to get inspiration is Stampin' Connection (SC)...an exclusive online Stampin' Up! Demonstrator community. 

Today's card was inspired by Stampin' Connection.  Specifically, a fellow demonstrator, Penny Smiley.  I saw her card on SC and totally had to make one.  I did change up a few details to make it my own.  

You too can gain access to Stampin' Connection, when you purchase the Sale-a-Bration Starter Kit, just like our newest DOstamperSTARS:

Tracy from NC, Andreia from WI, Carolyn from PA, Mary from TX, Michell from WA, Linda from MN, Allison from NC, Debra from GA, Joyce from ME, Robyn from MN

Travel Memories Tag Wallet

It's that time of year again - Travel Time!  And just in time...Stampin' Up! has a line of travel products in their Summer Mini Catalog.  Today, I'm sharing a cute little photo wallet to share your Travel Memories, showcasing Stampin' Up! Travel Journal Designer Series Paper.

This little Tag Wallet only measures 3" x 4-1/4".  But open it up and WOW... it will hold up to 12-13 pictures!

Tag-Wallet-Cover

NOTE:  This project uses a couple of punches that will be retiring.  The Tag Corner punch (used on the front and inside flaps, as well as the inside tags).  The arrows are created with the My Way punch.  I'm gonna miss these punches!  As of 6/19 - they are still available for purchase.

Dawns Stamping Tips
1.  For the arrow (My Way punch) - I punched the largest arrow out of both Pumpkin Pie and lightweight chipboard.  Adhered the two together and then attached it to the wallet with a brad.  It swings back and forth to open the wallet.

2.  Lookie here...the word "travel" was stamped using the new set "Rough Type Alphabet" (from the Summer Mini Catalog).  I lined them on a clear block and stamped it all together.  LOVE IT!!  Huge time saver!

3.  When placing the letters on your clear block, start right to left.

Travel

Springtime Mini Album Tin with Stampin' Up! 2-Step Bird Punch

Today I'm sharing a project my Hedgehog Scrapbook Club Members last month.  They each made this adorable Springtime Mini Album Tin.  Some received Shades of Spring Designer Series Paper (as shown in tin below) and others received Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper to make theirs.

Supplies:  Fancy Flower stamp set, Versamark Ink, Orchid Opulence, Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink & Whisper White Cardstock, Shades of Spring Designer Series Paper, Punches: Corner Rounder, Scallop Border, Fancy Flower, 2-Step Bird, Fluerettes II, Sending Love Epoxy Brad, Pewter Jumbo Eyelets, Pretty in Pink Striped Ribbon, Paper Trimmer w/Scoring Blade, Embossing Buddy, Clear Embossing Powder, Powder Pal Tray, Heat Tool

Grouping-Photo

I love the detail of the embossed flowers on the cover of the tin.  See my tips below for embossing on metal/tin!

Dawns Stamping Tips - Embossing on Tin

1.  I used LOTS of powder from an Embossing Buddy (#103083, $5.95) to remove static from the tin.

2.  Then stamp, add clear embossing powder, melt with heat tool and let cool

3.  After cooling, remove excess Embossing Buddy powder with a swiffer sheet

Open

Guess what? 

I have a few Springtime Mini Album Tin kits left (w/Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper).  If you're interested - you may purchase a kit for $15, plus $3 shipping.  They do not come with instructions or stamping - just the photos you see here.  Included is all of the materials to complete your album, all punched elements, "bare" book is scored and Jumbo Eyelets are set.  The cover of the tin is not stamped or embossed.
