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).

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.

Celebrate Sunflowers: Masking Technique

Today's card is one of the projects I did for my DOstamping Club this month.  It features the new Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle and an oldie, but goodie stamping technique called, Masking.

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

Celebrate friendship with heartfelt sentiments and a stunning set of sunflower images from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set.  I think any of your friends would love to receive this card.  Here's how you can make it...

How'd She DO That? Sunflower Thanks Masking card

  • Stamps/Bundles:  Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle (& SAVE 10% includes Sunflower Dies)
  • Paper:
    • Whisper White Thick (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base, 1" x 3-1/2" for sentiment punch) 
    • Bumblebee (4" x 5-1/4")
    • Early Espresso (scrap for leaves die)
  • Ink:  Early Espresso, Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush (use for flower center)
  • Other:    Sunflower Dies, Gilded Gems, Stampin' Seal & Stampin' Dimensionals

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

DOstamping Masking Instructions:

  1. Stamp large flower in lower corner of Bumblebee panel.  (NOTE:  this is when I used the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush on the center of the flower.)
  2. Stamp large flower again on lightweight paper or sticky note, fussy cut out.  This is your "mask".  Save with your stamp set.
  3. Position mask over flower on stamped panel - pulling back slightly from edge of image.
  4. Stamp leaf image on stamped panel, over the edge of the mask.
  5. Remove mask.  Now the leaf will look like it's coming out from under the flower.  Pretty cool, right?

If you want to see a demonstration on how to do the Masking Technique, check out my Virtual Catalog Open House Video.  This link is all set up to start at the time mark for the demonstration: CLICK HERE

I was so excited about how this card turned out...yay!  It's really another QC card and could be made in several different colors too.

I've been having LOTS of fun playing with the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle.   I have another project to share with you soon.  In the meantime, if sunflowers are your think, this is definitely a must-have bundle for you!  Add it to your shopping bag today.

Stamping with the STARS #325: Shaker Card Inspiration with Frosted Foliage

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts325.  Today we're showcasing Shaker cards! 

#DOswts325 | Stamping with the STARS Shaker card inspiration hop #DOstamperSTARS #dostamperSTARS #christmascards

I knew right away I was going to reach for the Feels like Frost Suite of Products.  I'm tickled with the way it turned out.

Fun & Easy Shaker card using Stampin' Up!'s Frosted Foliage Bundle from Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS Inspiration #DOswts325 #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #dostamperstars

How'd She DO That? Frosted Shaker card:

  • Stamps/Bundles: Frosted Foliage (bundle with Frosted Frame dies and SAVE 10%)
  • Paper:
    • Purple Posy (5-1/2" x 8-1/4" card base)
    • Seaside Spray (5" x 4-1/4 for die cut frame)
    • Window Sheets (2-5/8" x 2-7/8)
    • Feels Like Frost 6x6 Specialty Designer Series Paper (2-3/4" x 5-1/2")
  • Ink:  Versamark
  • Heat Emboss:  Swipe Embossing Buddy over Window Sheet.  Stamp greeting with Versamark ink (being careful to stamp straight down, then pull straight up).  Cover with White Stampin' Emboss Powder, then flick off the excess.   To avoid warping the window sheet, melt with Heat Tool by starting under the window sheet, then above window sheet, rotating back and forth until powder is melted.
  • Other:  Frosted Frames Dies,  Shimmery Crystal Effects, Ice Stampin' Glitter, Snail Adhesive & Foam Adhesive Strips

Fun & Easy Shaker card using Stampin' Up!'s Frosted Foliage Bundle from Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS Inspiration #DOswts325 #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #dostamperstars

DOstamping Shaker Card Tips:

  • Adhere DSP to folded card base.
  • Die cut "frosted frame".  Then die cut a "window frame" from center. 
  • Stamp and heat emboss window sheet as described above.  Then adhere window sheet to back of frame using Foam Adhesive strips.  (note: half will be on the window sheet and half will be on the frame.)  
  • At this point, I do recommend swiping the embossing buddy over the inside of the window sheet (will help a lot with static cling)
  • ONLY remove 2 backing sheets (the top and one side) from the Foam Adhesive strips and adhere those edges to the DSP on the card.
  • Then add approximately 1/2 teaspoon of Snowflake Sequins to inside the window.
  • Remove the last two strips of backing sheets to seal off the shaker.
  • OPTIONAL:  prior to adhering the window sheet to the frame, use the new Shimmery Crystal Effects and Ice Stampin' Glitter to add "frost" to the foliage on the frame (will take about 15 minutes to dry).  I like to do this on the Silicone Craft Sheet.

That might seem like a lot of steps, but it came together surprisingly fast.  

If you enjoy making fun technique cards and want to spread a little yuletide cheer, this Frosted Shaker Card is for you!  Be sure to  add the Frosted Foliage Bundle to your shopping bag today!

Enjoy~Dawn O

Stampin' Up! Beauty & Joy: Easy Spotlight Card

Today I'm sharing a card that made me smile when I made it...love it when that happens.  First off, I'm using a new 2019 Holiday Catalog stamp set called, Beauty & Joy.  

2019 Holiday Catalog Beauty & Joy stamp set, with EASY Spotlight Technique by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

This Distinktive* stamp set has a special texture that gives added depth and dimension in a single step, creating photo-realistic images.  The basket particularly shows off the Distinktive style. 

How'd She DO That? Beauty & Joy Spotlight card

  • Stamps: Beauty & Joy
  • Paper:
    • Crumb Cake (8-1/2" x 4-1/4" card base) 
    • Very Vanilla (3-1/2" square)
    • Early Espresso (3-5/8" square)
  • Ink:  Crushed Curry, Terracotta Tile, Soft Suede, Early Espresso
  • Other:   Sponge Daubers, Stitched Rectangle Dies, Linen Thread, SNAIL, Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals

2019 Holiday Catalog Beauty & Joy stamp set, with EASY Spotlight Technique by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

DOstamping Tips:

  1. I recommend stamping the images from the bottom, building to the top.
  2. For the leaves, ink stamp first with Crushed Curry.  Before stamping, use a Sponge Dauber to add Terracotta Tile ink randomly to the leaves.  Breathe on stamp to re-moisten and then stamp.
  3. Stamp sentiment slightly overlapping leave image.
  4. To create the "spotlight" - die cut sentiment with Stitched Rectangle Die.
  5. When assembling card - adhere sentiment last with Stampin' Dimensionals.

2019 Holiday Catalog Beauty & Joy stamp set, with EASY Spotlight Technique by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

When I first started stamping this card, I wasn't sure what direction I was going.  I thought I'd add the sentiment as a separate layer.  But I didn't want it to cover up the two-toned leaves.  Then the idea hit me..."spotlight" the sentiment.  It was the perfect way to step-up this card just a little bit.  And...it was a hit at my club class last week!

Your day with bloom with beauty and joy as you create amazing projects using the Beauty & Joy Stamp Set.  I definitely recommend adding it to your Shopping Bag today!

Enjoy~Dawn O

Accented Blooms Watercolor Wash Technique

Today I'm sharing a technique card that uses one of my favorite stamp sets that was introduced last year...Accented Blooms.  

Accented Blooms Watercolor Wash card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

The technique is called Watercolor Wash and is surprisingly easy to do.   It was a huge hit with my Stampin' Club Members.  See below for more details.

DOstamping Accented Blooms card:

  • Stamps: Accented Blooms
  • Paper:
    • Blackberry Bliss (8-1/2" x 4-1/4" card base) 
    • Shimmery White (3-7/8" square) 
    • Whisper White (3-7/8" square for inside, scrap for punch)
  • Ink: Versamark, Blackberry Bliss, Flirty Flamingo
  • Heat Emboss: Stamp image with Versamark ink on Shimmery White paper.  Cover with Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder.  Remove excess and melt with Heat Tool.
  • Other:  Tailored Tag Punch, Nature's Twine, AquaPainter, SNAIL, Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals

Accented Blooms Watercolor Wash card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

How'd She DO That? Accented Blooms Watercolor Wash Tips:

  1. Heat emboss image as described above.
  2. Use Aqua Painter to lightly cover the areas to be colored with water. 
  3. Squeeze ink pad together and open.  Pick up some of the ink pooled in the inside cover and "wash" color over the floral images (Blackberry  Bliss and Flirty Flamingo).  NOTE: You may want to pull a little ink off the brush before coloring - as you can always add more color.  Let completely dry.  Then adhere to 4-1/4" x 8-1/2" folded Blackberry Bliss card base.
  4. Stamp sentiment on scrap of white and cut with Tailored Tag Punch.  Adhere with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  5. Loop a piece of Nature's Twine and adhere behind tag with Glue Dots.

What do you think?  Cool, huh?

If you haven't added the Accented Blooms stamp set to your collection yet, be sure to add it to your shopping bag today!  Oh, and don't forget to get the Tailored Tag Punch too.  

Enjoy~Dawn O

Stamping with the STARS #317: Wild Rose Floating Frame Inspiration

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts317.  This week we're showcasing Floating Frame cards.

Stampin with the STARS #DOswts317 Floating Frame Technique #dostamperstars #dostamping #papercrafting

Floating Frame Technique using To a Wild Rose (from Stampin' Up) shared by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #DOswts317 #dostamping #dostamperstars #stampingtechnique #papercrafting #cardmaking #stampinup
The Floating Frame Technique has been floating around the internet lately and the STARS thought we should give it a try.  I've seen a couple different ways of doing it.  For my cards today, I used Glad Press'n Seal.

Floating Frame Technique using To a Wild Rose (from Stampin' Up) shared by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #DOswts317 #dostamping #dostamperstars #stampingtechnique #papercrafting #cardmaking #stampinup

How'd She DO That? Wild Rose Floating Frame card:

  • Bundle: To a Wild Rose stamp set with Wild Rose Dies
  • Paper:
    • Basic Black (5-1/2" x 8-1/2" card base)
    • Whisper White (two of 4" x 5-1/2" (one for inside), and scrap for greeting die)  
    • Whisper White (full sheet for flowers and leaves)
  • Ink:  Tuxedo Black Memento, Mango Melody, Calypso Coral & Granny Apple Green
  • Other:  Rectangle Stitched Dies, Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots, Stampin' Dimensionals, Mini Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Stamping Tips: Stamp outline image first, then stamp "solid" image by stamping off first.  Then "detailed" image by stamping off first too.  I did this for both the flowers and leaves

Floating Frame Technique shared by Dawn Olchefske for #DOswts317 #dostamping #dostamperstars #stampingtechnique #papercrafting #cardmaking #stampinup

DOstamping Floating Frame Instructions:

  1. Stamp several flowers and leaves (To a Wild Rose)
  2. Die cut with matching dies (Wild Rose)
  3. Arrange (but do not adhere) on 5-1/2" x 4" piece of Whisper White
  4. Cover with a piece of Press'n Seal, to keep everything in place.  Smooth over lightly, but be sure to press down firmly over any "empty areas" (this will help to make sure everything stays together for the next steps)
  5. Trim off overhanging edges, THEN REMOVE Whisper White panel (save)
  6. Die cut opening with Stitched Rectangle Die (2-9/16"x 4")
  7. Flip over and add a lot of Stampin' Dimensionals & Mini Stampin' Dimensionals (I used edges too).
  8. Adhere "frame" to saved Whisper White panel, then to folded card.  Remove Press'n Seal.
  9. Stamp sentiment.

Floating Frame Technique using To a Wild Rose (from Stampin' Up) shared by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #DOswts317 #dostamping #dostamperstars #stampingtechnique #papercrafting #cardmaking #stampinup

Save the center piece to create another card

  • Adhere to 3-3/8"  x 4-3/8" Basic Black Stitched Rectangle
  • Adhere to 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" folded So Saffron card base. 
  • Sentiment strip measures 5/8" x 4-1/4"

This is one of those kind of card techniques that takes a little extra time, but it's worth it.  Especially since it will create two cards!

Last note:  I'm completely in LOVE with our new dies.  Why?  Because the die shapes perfectly line up with the stamped image, yet there still is a little white space surrounding the shape after cutting.  It's a perfect cut each time!!

Get the To a Wild Rose Bundle today - you'll love it!

Enjoy~Dawn O

Pop of Petals Wreath Panel Card

Often I get asked where I get my inspiration from.  There are several answers to that question.  However for today's Pop of Petals Wreath Panel card, the inspiration came directly from Stampin' Up!. 

Four times a year, Stampin' Up! demonstrators receive a Stampin' Success magazine filled with creative and business inspiration.  I fold over the corners of the pages that inspire me and CASE those projects for my classes and clubs.  Why not, right?   I appreciate that Stampin' Up! provides samples for us to copy.  Just a little something to make my "job" easier.

Stampin' Up!  Pop of Petals panel card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #popofpetals #birthdaycards

Today's card is an example of a Stampin' Success project, that I used for my Stamping Club Class last month.  I left most everything the same with the exception of the greeting.  Other changes I made,  the white piece opens (like a "mini card"),  with a 1/4 sheet card base panel.   (Yes - I like panel cards!)

How'd She DO That? tips for Pop of Petals Wreath Panel card:

  • Stamps:  Pop of Petals, Itty Bitty Birthdays
  • Paper:
    • Soft Sea Foam (4-1/4 x 5-1/2" card base and 5/8" x 4" sentiment)
    • Whisper White (3-1/2" x 5-1/2" score at 4-1/4", and 4-1/2" x 1-1/2" for border punch)
    • Petal Pink (scraps for flowers)
  • Ink:  Soft Sea Foam, Mossy Meadow, Petal Pink
  • Other:  4-Petal Flower Punch, 2-1/4" Circle Punch (for wreath template),  Gold Faceted Gems, Linen Thread, Glue Dots, & Stampin' Dimensionals

Tips for creating a wreath using Pop of Petals stamp set from Stampin' up! - by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #popofpetals

DOstamping Tips:

  1. On 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece of Soft Sea Foam - stamp "flower group" with same ink in upper left and lower right corners
  2. Fold 3-1/2" x 8-1/2" Whisper White cardstock in half (to create a mini card)
  3. Creating the stamped wreath:
    • Cut a circle template with 2-1/4" Circle Punch. 
    • Place on front of folded "mini card" and use a pencil to draw around the circle.  
    • Stamp leaf image around circle with Mossy Meadow ink (the line will be the center of the leaf).  Stamp one leaf, then before reinking, stamp again (moving around the circle). 
    • Repeat until the wreath is complete.
  4. Cut 1-1/2" x 4-1/2" strip of Whisper White with Decorative Ribbon Border Punch and adhere to back of folded white piece.  Then adhere stamped mini card to stamped Soft Sea Foam panel.
  5. Stamp greeting on 4" x 5-/8" strip (towards right edge), and adhere over wreath.
  6. Stamp (3) flowers on Petal Pink scrap with Petal Pink ink.  Cut out with Four-Petal Flower Punch.  Adhere to card with Glue Dots.  Attach Gold Faceted Gems to flower centers.
  7. Tie (2) 10" lengths of twine in a bow, adhere with a Glue Dot

I'm lovin' that the Pop of Petals stamp set is for more than just flowers.  Anything that can make a wreath, I'm all for!!

When you purchase this stamp set, be sure to add the matching punch to your shopping bag too!

Enjoy~Dawn O
