Your Creative Connection #105: I Can Sing a Rainbow

Welcome to another Your Creative Connection tour, #YCC105.  Our theme today is:  A Rainbow for You

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

The inspiration for my card today is a song we sang in Girl Scouts, "I Can Sing a Rainbow" (I'm singing it right now as I type).  It's actually one of my favorites from my Girl Scout experience...oh the memories!  To see the lyrics, scroll down below the supply list.  But I digress...

As I was singing it, I thought,"how can I make a card using the song as my inspiration?"  Duh!  My Million Sales Achiever stamp set, Music from the Heart.  Of course, it's a perfect choice!

DOstamping Tips:

  • Generation Stamping: 
    • Ink up "shadow" image (from Beautiful You stamp set),  stamp off on a scrap paper first.  Then stamp on music staff, for the card above.  Don't re-ink yet, but stamp again on the music staff, for the card below.  Gives you multiple generations of color!  Plus you can make two cards at the same time!
  • For card above - stamp "heart notes" with black ink.  Stamp small hearts with various matching colors and add small Heart Epoxy Droplets to small hearts.
  • For card below - stamp "heart notes" with matching color & add medium Heart Epoxy Droplets to notes.

Snow Front Thanksgiving Card

Today I'm sharing Thanksgiving card featuring the Snow Front stamp set (found on pg 45 in the 2019 Holiday Catalog).

Stampin' Up! Snow Front and Day of Thanks card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #thanksgivingcards

You can create tranquil scenes with the Snow Front Stamp Set, whether it's cozy cabins with dainty deer or playful cardinals in a winter forest.  This Two-Step Stampin’ set allows you to layer two or more images to create one final image with extra texture and dimension in the colors you want. 

How'd She DO That? Snow Front Thanksgiving card

  • Stamps: Snow Front and Days of Thanks (sentiment)
  • Paper:
    • Very Vanilla Thick (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base) 
    • Very Vanilla (3-7/8" x 5-1/8" and scrap for label die)
    • Old Olive (4" x 5-1/4" and 1-1/2" x 5-1/8")
  • Ink:  Old Olive, Mango Melody, Soft Suede, Cajun Craze
  • Other:  Stitched Nested Labels Dies, Subtle 3D Embossing Folder, SNAIL & Stampin' Dimensionals

Stampin' Up! Snow Front and Day of Thanks card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #thanksgivingcards

DOstamping Tips:

  • It's hard to see in the photo, but after stamping the greeting, add texture with the Subtle embossing folder
  • To create even more texture and varying colors, use the "stamping off" technique method of stamping.
    • Stamping Off = stamping same image two or more times without re-inking in between.

So don't let the name of this stamp set fool you.  Snow Front can be used for several seasons, that you'll find yourself reaching for it all-year long. Add it to your shopping bag today!

Thank you for shopping with me!

Enjoy~Dawn O

Easy Thanksgiving Card with Stampin' Up!'s Gather Together set

Here's a card we made at my Stamp-a-Stack class last night using the Gather Together stamp set.  And it was a hit with my stampers!

I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest with "wheat" stamping and put my own twist on the card.  Take a look...

Easy Stampin' Up! Gather Together card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #thanksgiving

How'd She DO That? Harvest Wheat card

  • Stamps: Gather Together & Country Home 
  • Paper:
    • Merry Merlot (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base) 
    • Very Vanilla  (2-3/4" x 5-1/2", 1/2" x 5-1/2")
    • Crushed Curry (2-7/8" x 5-1/2")
  • Ink:  Terracotta Tile, Merry Merlot, Crushed Curry 
  • Other:  Designer Elements & SNAIL

Easy Stampin' Up! Gather Together card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #thanksgiving

DOstamping Tips:

  • For stamping the wheat images, I recommend:
    • start with stamping both ends with Terracotta Tile ink
    • then stamp in the center with Merry Merlot
    • then fill in between by stamping wheat upside down with Crushed Curry ink  

The Country Home stamp set was used for the greeting.  It has several images that would compliment nicely with the Gather Together stamp set

The Designer Elements were added last.  They are a nice finishing touch and they have a lower profile for ease of mailing.

Add them to your shopping bag today, so loved ones near and far will feel your love and appreciation when they receive this hand-stamped card from you.  

Enjoy~Dawn O

Apple Builder Punch: Pumpkin & Mercury Glass Designer Acetate

Today I'm sharing a couple of new products from the 2019 Holiday Catalog...Apple Builder Punch and the Mercury Glass Designer Acetate.

What happens when you combine the Apple Builder Punch to create beautiful die-cut apples (or pumpkins) for your projects with Mercury Glass Designer Acetate featuring a faux mercury glass finish on acetate sheets?

Stampin' Up! Apple Builder Punch & Mercury Glass Designer Acetate card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

A pretty awesome pumpkin!   We did this card at my Stamp Club last month and TO GO members are receiving their project packs this week.  For information regarding my TO GO Classes,  learn more HERE

How'd She DO That? Mercury Glass Acetate Pumpkin card

  • Stamps: Gather Together
  • Paper:
    • Cajun Craze (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base) 
    • Crumb Cake (2" x 5-1/2" - prior to using Banner Triple Punch)
    • Pretty Peacock (scrap for 2-5/8" Stitched Shapes square die)
    • Come to Gather Designer Series Paper (for Apple Builder Punch - punch from full sheet)
    • Mercury Glass Designer Acetate (for Apple Builder Punch - punch from full sheet)
  • Ink:  Pretty Peacock
  • Other:   Stitched Shapes Dies, Apple Builder Punch, Banner Triple Punch, Come to Gather Ribbon Combo Pack, Leaves Trinkets,  SNAIL, Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals

Stampin' Up! Apple Builder Punch & Mercury Glass Designer Acetate card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

DOstamping Tips:

  1. The Mercury Glass Designer Acetate is rather thick.  DO NOT cut narrow strips (to save on paper) when punching out shapes using the Apple Builder Punch.  Be sure to punch all three shapes at the same time (apple/pumpkin, stem & leaf) to extend the life of your punch.
  2. Tips for assembling acetate pumpkin:
    1. adhere acetate to same shape of Come to Gather Designer Series Paper (I used the white pumpkins with Pretty Peacock leaves - but you can use any color/pattern behind the acetate.)
    2. adhere leaves trinket with glue dot
    3. tie off 2-1/4" piece of Crumb Cake ribbon with coordinating Cajun Craze linen thread - in a bow.  Adhere with glue dot.
    4. flip pumpkin over and adhere stem with glue dot on the backside.

The Mercury Glass Designer Acetate will add a touch of vintage shimmer to all your projects this season.  Don't forget to get the Apple Builder Punch so you can create a bushel or two of beautiful die-cut apples (or pumpkins) for your projects. Add these seasonal favorites to your shopping bag today!

Enjoy~Dawn O

Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog Gather Together stamp set card from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #thanksgiving #cometogather

DOstamping Tip:

  • This card comes together quickly with the 3 strips of DSP.  The hardest part is picking out your favorite patterns.
  • When stamping the pumpkins on Pretty Peacock layer... mount both stamps on same block for ease of stamping. 
  • Punches are my favorite way to add greetings and layers.  Sandwich between ribbon and it finishes off a card nicely!

Not only will I be reaching for the Gather Together stamp set again, but I'll also be using this layout again...it's a winner.

Get ready for the fall season now by adding Come To Gather Suite of products to your shopping bag today.

Enjoy~Dawn O

Stamping with the STARS #322: Come To Gather Sketch

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts322.  This week we're showcasing a fun and easy sketch.

#DOswts322 | Stamping with the STARS Sketch inspiration hop #DOstamperSTARS #sketch #dostamperSTARS #DOswts322 | Stamping with the STARS Sketch inspiration hop #DOstamperSTARS #sketch

For today's sketch inspiration, I pulled out some new product from the 2019 Holiday Catalog Come To Gather Suite.

Fall is my favorite time of year! 

So it was natural the Come To Gather Designer Series Paper caught my attention.  It was a perfect choice for today's sketch.

How'd She DO That? Come To Gather card:

  • Stamps/ Bundles: Gather Together Bundle (includes Gathered Leaves Dies - save 10%)  
  • Paper:
    • Gray Granite (11" x 4-1/4" card base)
    • Whisper White (3" x 4-1/4", scrap for punch)
    • Cajun Craze (3/4" x 4-3/4")
    • Early Espresso (scrap for leaf die)
    • Come To Gather Designer Series Paper (1-1/4" x 4" wood, 1" x 4" dots )
  • Ink:  Early Espresso
  • Other:   Darling Label Punch Box (punch), Leaves Trinkets, Come To Gather Ribbon Combo, SNAIL, Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals

One of the fun things about the leave dies is, three of them both emboss and cut.  It adds a nice dimension to the card, don't you think?

This sketch is a keeper.  It's going in my bag of tricks for future card designs.  I definitely recommend giving it a try.

And...if you're a fall-lover like me, then you'll enjoy the Come To Gather Suite of products!  Add them to your shopping bag today!  

Enjoy~Dawn O
