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

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.

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

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

Stamping with the STARS #334: Easter Bunny Gnome Punch Art

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts334.  This week we're showcasing Punch Art projects.

DOstamperSTARS Stamping with the Stars #DOswts334 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting

What is punch art?  

Using your punches &/or die shapes in ways to create something outside of it's intended use.  Think flowers, animals, insects, food, holiday icons and more.

 

Easter Bunny Gnome by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Stamping with the Stars #DOswts334 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #punchart #papercrafting #howdSheDOthat

Last month I shared a Valentine's Day Gnome and you guys were lovin' it!  So I thought an Easter Bunny Gnome would be fun to do.

 

How'd She DO That? Easter Bunny Gnome Punch Art:

  • Stamps: Timeless Tulips
  • Paper:
    • Purple Posy (11" x 4-1/4", scrap for small bloom punch)
    • Whisper White (scraps for beard - tropical dies and sentiment  
    • Daffodil Delight (scraps for nose - 1/2" circle punch, ears - Daisy Punch)
    • Highland Heather (scrap for hat - pine tree punch)
    • Mint Macaron (scrap for feet - perennial flower punch
    • Best Dressed Designer Series Paper (2" x 4-1/2", 1/2"  x 4-1/4")
  • Ink: Highland Heather, Basic Black Stampin'  Write Marker
  • Punches:  Pine Tree, 1/2" Circle, Perennial Flower, Daisy, Small Bloom (FREE Sale-a-Bration item)
  • Other:  Tropical Dies, Paper Snips, Gold Faceted Gems, Mini Glue Dots, Stampin' Dimensionals, Foam Adhesive Strips

Easter Bunny Gnome by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Stamping with the Stars #DOswts334 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #punchart #papercrafting #howdSheDOthat

DOstamping Tips:

  • Click here for tips on building a "basic" Gnome.
  • For the sentiment - stamp on scrap of white and cut out the words you want to use.  Adhere with Foam Adhesive Strips.
  • For the flower - cut each petal in half, then scrunch up into a ball.  Unfold and adhere with Stampin' Dimensional.   I thought it resembled the flowers in the DSP.
  • For the bunny ears - cut off 3 petals from the Daisy shape.  Adhere behind the hat with Mini Glue Dots

Stamping with the STARS #333: Sketch Inspiration with Timeless Tulips

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts333.  Today we've got a fabulous Sketch for you!

Stamping with the STARS Sketch Inspiration Hop #DOswts333  #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #dostamperSTARS #cardmaking timelesstulips #pleasedaspunch

As I'm still laid up from my knee replacement surgery, I needed to pull from products that were already on my stamping table - the Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper (Product Coordination Release).  

Stamping with the STARS Sketch Inspiration Hop #DOswts333  #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #dostamperSTARS #cardmaking timelesstulips #pleasedaspunch

I hadn't used the tulips pattern yet, so that's what I reached for.  It coordinates with the Timeless Tulips Bundle.  With today's sketch, it came together nicely.

How'd She DO That? Timeless Tulips card

  • Stamps/Bundles:  Timeless Tulips (Bundle & SAVE 10% with Tulip Builder Punch)
  • Paper:
    • Whisper White Thick (11" x 4-1/4" card base, 2-5/8" x 3-7/8")
    • Highland Heather (1-3/8" x 5-1/4" and scrap for Label Me Fancy Punch)
    • Gorgeous Grape (1-3/8" x 5-1/4")
    • Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper (1-3/8" x 5-1/4" and scraps for punching tulips & leaves)
  • Ink:  Gorgeous Grape, Pear Pizzazz
  • Other:  Tulip Builder Punch, Whisper White Baker's Twine, Noble Peacock Rhinestone,  SNAIL & Stampin' Dimensionals

Stamping with the STARS Sketch Inspiration Hop #DOswts333  #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #dostamperSTARS #cardmaking timelesstulips #pleasedaspunch

DOstamping Tips:

  • Use Tulip Builder Punch to cut tulips from the DSP.  Then use leftover scraps to cut (3) leaves using the pattern from the other side.
  • Stamp two stems on Whisper White piece with Pear Pizzazz ink.  Assemble tulips.
  • For the greeting, I used the Label Me Fancy punch - cut out the small hole first, then aligned that hole in the corner of the label shape to cut.  Then stamped with Gorgeous Grape ink.

There is so much to love about the Please as Punch Designer Series Paper.   It makes your punches go further!   Be sure to check it out and  to your shopping bag today!

Thank you for shopping with me!

Enjoy~Dawn O

Your Creative Connection: Pleased as Punch

Today I'm excited to announce the launch of "Your Creative Connection"; a bi-monthly creative showcase which will come to you on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month.

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

Your Creative Connection came together from a group of eight global friends wanting to give you a worldwide connection to creativity.  We hope to inspire you to connect with us and others as we share papercrafting ideas using Stampin' Up! products.  Each showcase will have a theme, and we will "travel" around the world to connect with our creative friends.

Today's theme:  Pleased as Punch

I couldn't decide which color version I liked best, so they made one of each.

Sale-A-Bration Small Bloom Punch coordinates with Please as a Punch Designer Series Paper #dostamping #stampinup #coordinationproduct

DOstamping Tip:

  • Use the Small Bloom Punch (FREE during Sale-a-Bration with $100 order) to cut out flowers from the DSP sheet.   
  • I recommend punching the closest ones the punch can reach, then use a scissors to trim off excess paper to reach more flowers.

Your Creative Connection: Pleased as Punch  from Stampin' Up! created by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #ycc101

DOstamping Tip:

  • Use Detailed Trio punch to corner round the 1-1/4" x 3-1/2" white piece.
  • Stamp the stem in roughly the center.  Then stamp leaves.  Both from Thoughtful Blooms stamp set (FREE during Sale-a-Bration with a $50 order)

Fun with Stampin' Up!'s Vase Builder Punch #dostamping #stampinup

DOstamping Tip:

  • To create the vase, I gave everyone a 2" x 3-1/4" piece of Pear Pizzazz (enough for 2-vases).
  • Stamp the border image three times (also from Thoughtful Blooms).  Then use the Vases Builder punch to cut out the vase.

If you like punches, you'll enjoy creating with the Please as Punch Designer Series Paper and it's coordinating Punches.  It's available for a limited time and only while supplies last.  You'll want to add it to your shopping bag today!
