Stampin’ Up! FREE Sale-a-Bration Delicate Dahlias stamp set card by Dawn Olchefske coming August 3 #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat-c

DOstamping Tips:

  • I enlisted the help of the "stamping off "technique.
  • Ink up flower image and stamp onto white panel.  Then without reinking, stamp again to get a lighter version of the same color.
  • This technique is perfect for getting different color tones for floral images.

Stampin’ Up! FREE Sale-a-Bration Delicate Dahlias stamp set card by Dawn Olchefske coming August 3 #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat-s

I made this Delicate Dahlias card for a new swap I just participated in.  I'm totally in love with the way it turned - exactly how I envisioned in my head.  That doesn't happen very often.

Add both the Sale-a-Bration Delicate Dahlias & Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper to your wish list so you're ready to get these new products on August 3!

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop: Bouquet of Hope

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 February 2021 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Bouquet of Hope.

My kit just arrived yesterday - yikes!  This morning I'm hustling to get a card made.  As I opened and sorted the kit's contents, I was drawn to the gold foil sheets.  Actually, I'm not a fan of them, but...I thought I could use them as a stencil.  I'm thrilled with the way it turned out!  See below...

Paper Pumpkin Bouquet of Hope February 2019 kit alternate ideas from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #cardkits #howdSheDOthat-P
How'd She DO That? Foil Sheet Stencil Card:

  • PAPER:  4" x 5-1/4" Basic White, 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Basic White Thick card base
  • INK:  Rococo Rose, Tuxedo Black Memento
  • OTHER:  Blending Brushes (not sponge daubers), Rococo Rose 1/2" Gathered Ribbon

Paper Pumpkin Bouquet of Hope February 2019 kit stencil idea from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #cardkits #howdSheDOthat-1

DOstamping Tips:

  • Use a dab of adhesive under the gold foil sheet - remove a little bit of the stickiness.  Place in center of 4" x 5-1/4" white piece to use as a stencil.
  • Use Rococo Rose ink and Blending Brushes to apply ink.  I recommend adding & blending ink from the center area to the outer edges of the panel.
  • Then remove "stencil" to reveal pretty floral pattern.
  • NOTE:  I tried Sponge Daubers, but the couldn't get into the really tiny spaces.  The Blending Brushes worked beautifully and quickly!

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.

How'd She DO That? Peony Garden Middle Panel Fun Fold Card 

  • Stamps:  Prized Peony(Bundle & SAVE 10% with Peony Dies)
  • 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)
    • Whisper  White (4-1/4" x 5-1/2", 3" x 3-3/4")
    • Gray Granite (scraps for leaf die cuts)
    • Peony Garden Designer Series Paper (two of 1" x 4")
  • Ink:  Gray Granite, Petal Pink
  • Other:  Sponge Daubers, Peony Dies, Gray Granite 1/4" Shimmer Ribbon,  Elegant Faceted Gems, Mini Glue Dots, Stampin' Seal,

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.

Did you notice...there's a lot of the 2017-2019 In Color Lemon  Lime Twist in those frog cards. 

  • Why am I pointing that out?  Because that color and the other four 2017-2019 In Colors (Blushing Bride, Fresh Fig, Berry Burst & Tranquil Tide) will be retiring soon.  This collection has some of my favorite In Colors!
  • What does that mean to you?  The outgoing 2017-2019 In Color products tend to sell-out fast, especially the reinkers & cardstock.
  • Don't wait for the retired list to come out.  Stock up now and make your 2017-2019 In Color purchases go further with Sale-a-Bration freebies. 

 Shop 2017-2019 In Color Products Here

Enjoy~Dawn O
