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!

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop: Summer Nights

Paper Pumpkin Thing Monthly Blog Hop Dawn Olchefske #paperpumpkin #dostamping
Welcome to A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop! 

I'm excited to join this talented group of stampers to share alternate ideas for Paper Pumpkin Kits.  Today we're sharing the July 2020 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Summer Nights

Paper Pumpkin July 2020 Blop Hop - Summer Nights | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

July Paper Pumpkin - Summer Nights

  • Kit contains enough supplies to create nine postcards and coordinating envelopes, as well as nine die-cut tealight bags.
  • Card size: 4” x 5-1/4”
  • Coordinating Colors: Blackberry Bliss, Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Night of Navy

I adore the colors of this kit.  Reminds me of summer evenings (duh, of course), but also early fall. 

Here's a FOUR alternative ideas using the Summer Nights Paper Pumpkin kit and Summer Nights Add-On card pack.

Rock & Roll stamping technique with Summer Nights Paper Pumpkin July 2020 Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

How'd She DO That? Rock & Roll Summer Nights Card

  • On front of folded Pool Party card base (4-1/4" x 11), stamp fireworks image using "rock & roll" stamping technique
    • Ink up stamp with Coastal Cabana ink, then roll only the edges onto Night of Navy ink pad.  Stamp, clean and repeat as desired.
  • For sentiment - ink up stamp with Coastal Cabana ink, then add Night of Navy ink to top and bottom of image.  Stamp on label die cut (from kit) and adhere with dimensionals.
  • Add NEW Iridescent Pearls in the center of the fireworks.

 

Paper Pumpkin July 2020 Blop Hop - Summer Nights | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

How'd She DO That? Summer Nights Add-On Card  (features envelope)

  • If you're a reader of mine, you'll know that I love to use patterned lined envelopes to decorate my cards.  
  • The Summer Nights Add-On (154973) includes just such envelopes (along with 24 fabulously colored card bases)...super cute!
  • Trim out a 4" x 5-1/4" piece from the inside of the envelope.  
  • The banner is made with the NEW Banners Pick a Punch (I'm in love!).   Start with 1/2" x 4" piece of Night of Navy, cut both ends with punch.
  • The sentiment is stamped with Night of Navy ink.
  • Decorate card with die cuts from the kit. 

 

Paper Pumpkin July 2020 Blop Hop - Summer Nights | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

These cards couldn't be easier to make.   Plus the results are stunning!

How'd She DO That? Summer Nights QC Cards

  • First off - I totally CASED the layout of a card shown on page 126 from the 2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.
  • Second off - the floral images are stamped directly onto the card with Blackberry Bliss ink (from the kit).  Then use Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to move ink around and add glitter (in person - these cards shine!)

Paper Pumpkin July 2020 Blop Hop - Summer Nights | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

I love sketches!  They are like a map for cardmaking and help me stretch my creative muscle in ways that I may not have tried.   Here's my take on today's sketch.

Sketch card made with the NEW Plaid Tidings Suite (coming 8/3/20) by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #343 #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #DOswts343 #DOstamperSTARS #christmascards #sketch

I used some products from NEW Aug-Dec Mini Catalog Suite called Plaid Tidings, (Celebration Tidings stamp set & Plaid Tidings 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper - available August 4, 2020)

How'd She DO That? Christmas Tidings Sketch card

  • Stamps: Celebration Tidings
  • Paper:
    • Cherry Cobbler (11" x 4-1/4" card base) 
    • Whisper White (3-1/4" x 4-1/2")  
    • Shaded Spruce (1" x 2-3/4" for the new Banners Pick a Punch)
    • Plaid Tidings 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper (3-1/2" x 4-3/4")
  • Ink:  Shaded Spruce, Versamark, Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends Combo (Dark), Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush
  • Other:   Banner Pick a Punch, Wonder of the Season Ribbon Combo Pack,  White Stampin' Emboss Powder, Heat Tool, Stampin' Seal  & Stampin' Dimensionals

Sketch card made with the NEW Plaid Tidings Suite (coming 8/3/20) by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #343 #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #DOswts343 #DOstamperSTARS #christmascards #sketch

DOstamping  Coloring Tips:

  • Stamp "pine bough" image twice with Shaded Spruce ink.
  • Move color around on leaves with Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.  (Adds both color and glimmer at the same time - love it!)
  • Use fine tip end of the dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blend Marker to "dot" the berries.

After it all came together, this card brought a smile to my face.  I didn't think I was ready to make Christmas cards, but this really put me in the mood!

Be sure to add the Plaid Tiding Suite to your Aug-Dec 2020 Mini Catalog wish list.  You'll find lots of uses for it for the upcoming holidays (Halloween to Valentine's Day).

Nothing's Better Than meets Happiest of Birthdays! (and Video)

I'm excited about sharing today's card, as it was a card both my grandson, Max and I made together.  He picked out the bundle, Nothing's Better Than, and then we started playing!  

As he turned 13 this spring (yes, he's now a teenager - wow!) - I was actually surprised (but delighted) he still wanted to craft with me.  And, since he is only 13, we called it a pink lemonade card

He also wanted to make sure I tell you all that he helped design the card.  Even at 13 - he melts my heart (in between the moody teen times - ha)!  Here's what we came up with...

Nothing's Better Than from Stampin' Up! - card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #happiestofbirthdays

DOstamping It's Your Day Pink Lemonade card:

  • Stamps/Bundles: Nothing's Better Than Bundle, Happiest of Birthdays
  • Paper:
    • Flirty Flamingo (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base) 
    • Whisper White (3 x 4-1/4", scrap for cocktail die)
    • Playing with Patterns Designer Series Paper (both strips 3/4" x 5-1/4")
  • Ink:  Tuxedo Black Memento, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Coastal Cabana
  • Other:  Love You More Than Dies, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Stampin' Seal & Stampin' Dimensionals

Nothing's Better Than from Stampin' Up! - card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #happiestofbirthdays

I really liked the way the Nothing's Better Than stamp set went with the greeting from the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set.  To see how it all came together, be sure to check out my How'd She DO That? video.  It showcases THREE birthday cards, including this one:

Stamping with the STARS #342: Star Inspired Card

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Stamping with the STARS Inspiration Hop #DOswts342.  This week we're sharing "star" inspiration.

Star inspired card by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #342 #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #DOswts342 #DOstamperSTARS

Today's inspiration was suggested by my STARS team members and I thought it was a great idea.  After all, we are the STARS!  I chose to use Magenta Madness and Basic Black, as those are the colors of my DOstamperSTARS Team.

Star inspired card by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #342 #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #DOswts342 #DOstamperSTARS

Even if you don't have any star images or die shapes, you could use a sentiment that represents "you're a star!"  I found the perfect sentiment in the Daisy Lane stamp set (It's your time to shine) and then built my card around that.   

ALSO - I used two NEW Aug-Dec Mini Catalog items, as they had just arrived (Banner Pick a Punch, Glitter Star Ornaments - available August 4) .

How'd She DO That? Time to Shine Star card

DOstamping Tips for Heat Embossing:

  • I haven't heat embossed in a very long time. I forgot how much fun it is!  If you haven't heat embossed in awhile, or you don't know how to...here you go:
    • Stamp image on strip of Basic Black with Versamark Ink
    • Cover with White Stampin; Emboss Powder
    • Remove excess powder by "flicking" back side
    • Use Heat Tool to melt powder.
    • Adhere with Stampin' Dimensionals

I was super giddy when I finished this card.  It's even better than what I had envisioned in my head.  Love it when that happens!

If you don't have the Stitched Stars Dies yet, they are a must-have.  Whether you're celebrating someone's accomplishment or birthday, or it Christmas or 4th of July, you'll find LOTS of uses for them.  Add it to your shopping bag today!

Thank you for shopping with me!

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!

Oh my goodness - I just took a look at my Pinterest stats for the #DOswts341 Sketch Card I shared on Saturday...over 16,000 pins, already!  So...I'm thinking you liked that sketch.

Here's another take on it...

Stampin' Up! Flowers for All Seasons & Fancy Phrases Sketch card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #DOswts341 #DOstamperSTARS

DOstamping Tips:

  • Change the card position (from the sketch) to landscape for a different look.
  • Changed the In Color to Misty Moonlight. 
  • Use the Flowers for All Seasons Designer Series Paper, it's a perfect backdrop for this card.
  • See supply list below.

Stampin' Up! Flowers for All Seasons & Fancy Phrases Sketch card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #DOswts341 #DOstamperSTARS

The Fancy Phrases stamp set was used for the greeting again.  With the variety of greetings that come with this set...it's definitely a must-have stamp set!  It also is available in a bundle with the new Fancy Tag Topper Punch (save 10% with the Fancy Phrases Bundle 154090).  Add it to your shopping bag today, along with the Flowers For Every Season Designer Series Paper!
