Stamping with the STARS #357: Color Blocking Inspiration

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Stamping with the STARS Inspiration Hop #DOswts357.  This week we're sharing a Color Blocking Inspiration.

Stamping with the Stars #DOswts357 Color Blocking Inspiration #dostamperSTARS #dostampinup #stampinup

During our Monthly STARS Zoom Meeting last month, my team member and friend, Jan Carlson shared a Color Blocking Technique with everyone.  It looks really fun, so we decided to make it our theme inspiration for this month.

Stampin' Up! Hooray To You Color Blocking card by Dawn Olchefske for #DOstamperSTARS #DO357 #DOstamping #HowdSheDOthat-P

I'm lovin' the bright colors I chose to go with this fun birthday stamp set, Hooray To You.  I just pops off the card with a black card base.

How'd She DO That? Hooray To You card

  • Stamps: Hooray To You
  • Paper:
    • Basic Black (4-1/4" x 11" card base)
    • Whisper White (3-5/8" x 4-7/8") 
    • Highland Heather, Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight & Magenta Madness (3-1/2" x 4-3/4")
    • Basic White (scrap for punch)
  • Ink:  Tuxedo Black Memento
  • Other:  Stamparatus, Paper Trimmer, Classic Label Punch, Snail Mail Twine Combo, Black Matte Dots, Stampin' Seal, Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals

Stampin' Up! Hooray To You Color Blocking card by Dawn Olchefske for #DOstamperSTARS #DO357 #DOstamping #HowdSheDOthat-CU

DOstamping Tips:

  • Using the Stamparatus, stamp images on all 4 panels of colored cardstock with black ink.  (I did need to stamp each one 2 times to get a nice clean stamped image)
  • Use the Paper Trimmer to cut each panel as follows:
    • 1-1/4" off the top,
    • turn and cut off right edge at 1-1/2" ,
    • then turn and cut off 1" of the "birthday". 
    • NOTE:  I cut two panels at a time.  If you can - cutting all 4 panels at a time is optimal.
  • Sort pieces into 4 piles of 1 color/shape per pile.  You'll get 4 cards - yay!
  • Assemble on white panel, like a puzzle.

Stampin' Up! Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper Herringbone card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #herringbone

Herringbone is a pattern made up of rows of parallel lines which in any two adjacent rows slope in opposite directions.  Mine wasn't done is the traditional way. But it turned out fun!

Stampin' Up! Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper Herringbone card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #herringbone

DOstamping Tips:

  • Cover the 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" panel with Stampin' Seal + (or use Adhesive Sheets #152334)
  • Cut a variety of patterns in widths varying from 1/4" to 5/8".
  • Start by laying 1-3 strips down in a diagonal direction (as shown above).  The strips will hang off the sides of the panel.  Just trim off to the edge with a scissors.
  • Continue by laying down strips perpendicular to the first strips and trim to edge of panel.  Repeat in various perpendicular directions until the panel is completely covered.  Make sure all edges are trimmed off nicely.

Gilded Autumn Suite Week Day 3: Beautiful Abstract Autumn

Today is Day 3 of  Gilded Autumn Suite Week. 

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Autumn Technique card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #stampingtechniques

Today's card features the Beautiful Autumn stamp set

The idea came to me when I cleaning some of the stamps.  I noticed how cool just the "solid" images looked stamped multiple times.   

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Autumn Technique card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #stampingtechniques

It technically uses the Stamping-off Technique.  But I'm calling the card Abstract Autumn (because I think it's cool, which then makes me cool - right?)

How'd She DO That? Abstract Autumn card:

  • Stamps/Bundles: Beautiful Autumn Bundle (Save 10%)
  • Paper:
    • Very Vanilla Thick (4-1/4" x 11" card base) 
    • Very Vanilla (4" x 5-1/2" and three of 1-1/4" x 5" strips)
    • Crumb Cake (scrap for label die cut)
    • Early Espresso  (1/2" x 4")
  • Ink: Early Espresso, Soft Suede
  • Other:  Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine, Tasteful Labels Dies, Banners Pick a Punch, Stampin' Seal & Stampin' Dimensionals

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Autumn Technique card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #stampingtechniques

DOstamping Tips:

  • Stamping Off Technique for the  1-1/4"  x 5" strips:
    • oak leaf - ink image with Early Espresso.  Stamp once, then rotate image and stamp again without re-inking.  Repeat.
    • acorn - ink acorn "bottom" with Soft Suede.  Stamp once (do not re-ink yet).  Ink acorn "cap" with Early Espresso and stamp once (do not re-ink yet).  Then stamp bottom and top again (without re-inking).  Repeat.
    • triple leaf - ink image with Early Espresso.  Stamp once and then stamp again without re-inking.  Repeat.

I have to admit - I was filled with delight when this card came together.  I suggest playing around with some of the other "solid" images to come up with your own abstract patterns.

So...what do you think?  Cool, right?  Are you convinced you need Gilded Autumn Suite Collection yet?  

Be sure to stop by tomorrow for more Gilded Autumn Suite Week

Your Creative Connection #YCC115: Masking Dove of Hope

Welcome to another Your Creative Connection tour, #YCC115.  Our theme today is: What's Behind the Mask

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

What's Behind the Mask?   For this week's theme we could make a project using any of the following: masking, create your own mask or Stampin' Up! Decorative Masks. I chose the masking technique.   The Dove of Hope is a great stamp set to feature this technique.

  1. On Very Vanilla piece, stamp sentiment at bottom.   Stamp dove image leaving space for the branch and area for ribbon.
  2. Create a "mask" for dove by stamping dove on scratch paper and fussy cut out. 
  3. Place mask over stamped dove.
  4. Stamp branch image over dove mask.

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!)

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

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:

Your Creative Connection #YCC111: Forever Greenery Corset Tag Card

Welcome to another Your Creative Connection tour, #YCC111.  Our theme today is: Tag You're It

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

For today's showcase, I went waaay back into the "vault" and pulled out a memory of a card style I enjoyed making in 2004! 

Stampin' Up!  Forever Greenery Corset Tag Card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #stamping #papercrafting  #YCC111 #YourCreativeConnection #corsetcard

Back then, it was called a "Corset Card" and I found the inspiration in a magazine (that I don't recall right now).  You used two shipping tags to create the corset.   Now, with all of Stampin' Up!'s tag punches, there are lots of choices to make a Corset Tag card. 

How'd She DO That? Forever Greenery Corset Tag Card 

  • Stamps:  Fancy Phrases (Bundle & SAVE 10% with Fancy Tag Topper Punch)
  • Paper
    • Old Olive  (4-1/4" x 11" card base)
    • Whisper  White (scrap for sentiment tag)
    • Pretty Peacock (two of 2" x 5-1/2" for "corset tags") 
    • Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper (4" x 5-1/4")
  • Ink:  Pretty Peacock
  • Other:  Greenery Embossing Folders, Delightful Tag Topper Punch, Label Me Fancy Punch, 3/8" Old Olive/Pretty Peacock Reversible Ribbon,  Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack, Stampin' Seal, Stampin' Dimensionals

Stampin' Up!  Forever Greenery Corset Tag Card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #stamping #papercrafting  #YCC111 #YourCreativeConnection #corsetcard

DOstamping Tips:

  • Cut one end of each of the two of 2" x 5-1/2" Pretty Peacock strips with the Delightful Tag Topper Punch 
  • Add texture to both tags with the Greenery Embossing Folder (preserve the hole/tag ends).  
  • Layout tags over your card with tag ends facing each other.  Thread ribbon through both holes and tie in a bow.
  • Wrap tag ends around to the back side and adhere to together.  (NOTE: corset should be snug, but loose enough to slide off).

More Masked Celebrate Sunflowers

Here's another Celebrate Sunflowers masking technique card.  This time using Stampin' Blends to color the beautiful sunflowers! 

Masking Technique with Celebrate Sunflowers from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #stampingtechnique #celebratingsunflowers #stampinblends

How'd She DO That? Sunflower Celebrate Masking card

  • Stamps/Bundles:  Celebrate Sunflowers (or Bundle & SAVE 10% includes Sunflower Dies)
  • Paper:
    • Whisper White Thick (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base)
    • Whisper White (4" x 5-1/4")
    • Bumblebee  (1" x 3-1/2" for sentiment – cut both ends with Lovely Labels Pick a Punch)
  • Ink:  Early Espresso
  • Stampin' Blends:  Daffodil Delight, Soft Suede & Old Olive
  • Other:   Lovely Labels Pick a Punch, Gilded Gems, Stampin' Seal & Stampin' Dimensionals

Masking Technique with Celebrate Sunflowers from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #stampingtechnique #celebratingsunflowers #stampinblends

DOstamping Masking Instructions:

  1. On the Whisper White panel, stamp smaller sunflower image near the right edge/center. (shown as the 3rd flower from the bottom).
  2. Create masks: on sticky notes, stamp flower and leaf images, then fussy cut each one out separately.
  3. Use sticky note flower mask to cover stamped flower (pull slightly away from image), then stamp leaf as shown. Repeat for stamping flower/leaves above & below the first image. Then again for top & bottom images
  4. Color with Stampin’ Blends.

This Celebrate Sunflowers card made me feel like an artist.  With the right tools & technique, you can feel that way too.  Give masking a try, then color your images with Stampin' Blends!

This stamp set also comes in a bundle...Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle.   Add it to your shopping bag today.
