Paper Pumpkin Thing Monthly Blog Hop Dawn Olchefske #paperpumpkin #dostamping

This month's kit is fun and bright.  I love the colors, but it's just a little too busy for me.  That's why I like to create alternative cards, so they represent my style a little better.

Here's three alternative ideas  using the A Kit In Color Paper Pumpkin kit...

How'd She DO That? Oh Happy Day Rainbow card:

  • This card elements are all from the kit.
  • The card base is 11" x 4-1/4" Whisper White Thick cardstock.

How'd She DO That? Hey Fun Fold Card:

  • Trim off 1-1/2" from right edge of rainbow striped card.
  • Trim off 3/4" from patterned edge of Just Jade card and adhere to flap of striped card.
  • Fold the cloud die cut on the right edge.  Stamp sentiment on larger left side.  Adhere the smaller folded edge to back of card. 
  • Wrap twine around cloud and tie in a bow.
  • Add Puffy stickers

Paper Pumpkin May 2020 In Color Kit Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits
How'd She DO That? Quick & Cute Happy Day card:

  • Trim off strips from printed cards (1/2" x 4-1/2" striped, 5/8" x 4-1/2" Just Jade).  Trim left edges at a diagonal and adhere to Purple Posy card (from kit)
  • Stamp sentiment on back side of yellow banner from the kit.  Adhere to card with Dimensionals.
  • Cut flower from Magenta Madness cardstock (new In Color coming June 3), with Small Bloom Punch.  Adhere with glue dot to sentiment banner.  Add Puffy stick to center.

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.

Stamping with the STARS #338: Last Chance Time for Tags & Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts338.  This week we're showcasing Last Chance Retiring projects.

Stamping with the STARS #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #birthdaycards, #dostamperstars, #DOswts338

I pulled out a card I offered at my local Stamp-a-Stack class last fall, but hadn't shared yet.  I miss stamping with these gals! The card features the Stampin' Rewards Time for Tags stamp set (free with $150 order), Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper and a fun Double Punch Window trick.

How'd She DO That? Double Punch Window card

  • Stamps:  Time for Tags (FREE with $150 order)
  • Paper:
    • Flirty Flamingo (11" x 4-1/4" card base) 
    • Whisper White (3-1/2" square & scrap for punch)
    • Pool Party (3-1/4" square)
    • Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper (3" square)
  • Ink:  Tuxedo Black Memento
  • Stampin' Blends Combo Packs:  Pool Party, Old Olive, Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo  
  • Other:  Timeless Label Punch, Whisper White Bakers Twine,  Heart Epoxy Droplets, SNAIL & Stampin' Dimensionals

DOstamping Tips for Double Punch Window Trick:

  1. Position Timeless Label Punch in a 3-1/4" square piece of cardstock - push all the way in and center side to side.
  2. Turn cardstock 180 degrees and repeat the same positioning for the second punch out (see photo).
  3. Adhere 3" square of Designer Series Paper behind window opening.
  4. Then adhere to 3-1/2" piece of cardstock.

There's actually several patterns from the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper that will work for the other images with the Time for Tags stamp set.  Gotta like that!

 The Time for Tags stamp set and Timeless Label Punch are must-haves, in my opinion.  With its variety of images, the Time for Tags stamp set can be used for all sorts of occasions-from welcoming a new neighbor or baby to wishing someone special a happy birthday. 

I know you'll be reaching for the Time for Tags and Timeless Label Punch often!  Add them to your shopping bag today!

Thank you for shopping with me!

Enjoy~Dawn O

Your Creative Connection 106: Best Dressed Designer Series Paper

Welcome to another Your Creative Connection tour, #YCC106.  Our theme today is:  Your Favorite Designer Series Paper

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

I chose the Best Dress Designer Series Paper...

One of the things I like about the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper is if you're not into make-up, purses or perfume, the patterns on the other side are beautiful florals, polka dots and stripes.  Perfect for any type of card.  The pattern I'm using is my favorite!

Stampin' Up! Best Dressed card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #YCC106 #YourCreativeConnection

These cards are an adaption from my friend Julie Davison.  She recently shared a template for cutting up one sheet of 12 x 12 paper to make 11 cards.  I wanted to use 6 x 6 paper, so I came up with my own pattern to make 10 cards from (3) sheets of 6 x 6 paper.   (See TEMPLATE below)

How'd She DO That? 10 Easy Best Dressed cards

  • Stamps: Dressed to Impress
  • Paper:
    • Purple Posy (five of 11" x 4-1/4" card bases)
    • Blackberry Bliss (five of 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card bases) 
    • Whisper White (two of 3-1/4" x 4")
    • Whisper White (2-1/2" x 3-1/2")
    • Whisper White (scraps for 10 Tailored Tag Punch outs)
    • Best Dressed 6x6 Designer Series Paper (three full sheets - stack and cut at the same time)
  • Ink:  Blackberry Bliss
  • Other:  Tailored Tag Punch,  Silver 3/8" Metallic Edge Ribbon, SNAIL, Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals

How'd She DO That? Tips:

I'm not the best at watercoloring, so this Quick Wash tip was the way to go for me.  Plus, I made 36 of them, so it had to be fast! 

  • For the Aqua Painter, keep it more on the dry side.  If it's too wet, the paper will start "pilling.
  • Squeeze ink pad before opening, then pick up pooled ink from the lid with the Aqua Painter.
  • Color images fast with a quick "swipe" across them - using a light touch.  
  • For more tips and to see it in action, be sure to watch my How'd She DO That? video below (a replay of my facebook live from 1/9/20)

WATCH VIDEO: Quick Wash Tips for The Gang's All Meer & More 

 

Get your shopping list together to see if you can qualify for The Gang's All Meer stamp set (free with $50 order).  With it's appeal to people of ALL ages, you'll be reaching for it all year long!  Thank you for shopping with me!

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?

A pretty awesome pumpkin!   We did this card at my Stamp Club last month and TO GO members are receiving their project packs this week.  For information regarding my TO GO Classes,  learn more HERE

How'd She DO That? Mercury Glass Acetate Pumpkin card

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! Perennial Flower Punch Tips shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup #papercrafting #punchart

DOstamping TIPS:

  • If you're looking for "fuller-looking" Perennial Flowers:
    • Cut part way into the petals of one flower (as outlined in photo above), then "weave" it into the second flower.
  • For unique textured leaves:
    • Fold 2" of Pretty Peacock 1/2" Scalloped Linen Ribbon in half (secure with a glue dot), then adhere to back of flower with glue dots 
  • Adhere flowers to card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Don't forget to finish off with Perennial Essence Floral Centers (they're awesome!)
