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 want 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).

Your Creative Connection #110: Happiest of Birthdays Easy Fun Fold Card

Welcome to another Your Creative Connection tour, #YCC110.  Our theme today is: Hey Dude

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

I chose to use, what I personally think is one of the new must-have stamp sets, Happiest of Birthdays!  

Stampin' Up! Happiest of Birthdays card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #stamping #papercrafting  #YCC110 #YourCreativeConnection #masculinecards

Stampin' Up! Happiest of Birthdays card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #stamping #papercrafting  #YCC110 #YourCreativeConnection #masculinecards

DOstamping Tips:

  • Color the Playing with Patterns Resin Dots with Stampin' Blends!  I colored one of them with Night of Navy dark for this card.  With our Stampin' Blends these resins dots can go with anything!
  • To assemble this fun fold card:  fold bottom half into a Z fold.  Only adhere the top of the sentiment piece to the card (with Stampin' Dimensionals).  It holds the bottom half in place, until you unfold it to reveal the inside of the card.

I definitely recommend adding the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set to your collection - you'll use it all year long!

Your Creative Connection #109: Fancy Phrases Tags

Welcome to another Your Creative Connection tour, #YCC109.  Our theme today is: Something Old, Something New

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

My something OLD is last year's 2019-2021 In Colors and my something NEW is the brand new Fancy Phrases Bundle & Butterfly Gems.  

Stampin' Up! Fancy Phrases Tags by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #stamping #papercrafting  #YCC109 #YourCreativeConnection

I actually hesitated getting the Fancy Phrases Bundle because of the large floral image would require coloring.  But as you can see...it doesn't require coloring at all.  Though - I thought about adding a swish of Wink of Stella Glitter (which I think would look fabulous)

How'd She DO That? Fancy In Color Tags (or bookmarks)

  • Stamps: Fancy Phrase Bundle
  • Paper:  Seaside Spray, Terracotta Tile, Whisper White, Rococo Rose, Purple Posy (2" x 5-1/2) 
  • Ink:  Pretty Peacock
  • OtherFancy Tag Topper Punch,  Butterfly Gems, Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon

Stampin' Up! Fancy Phrases Tags by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #stamping #papercrafting  #YCC109 #YourCreativeConnection

I have to say...for something that I hesitated getting, I found myself saying ooh and aah every time I stamped the flower image.  And the phrases are really nice.  Now the Fancy Phrases Bundle on my must-have list!  Add it to your wish list today.

Thanks for stopping by.  Be sure to check out more creativity at our next stop on Your Creative Connection tour, Barbara Meyer.

Your Creative Connection #108: Celebrate Sunflowers Sneak Peek

Welcome to another Your Creative Connection tour, #YCC108.  Our theme today is: Love is in the Air

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

Over the Memorial Day weekend, I got the chance to play with the soon-to-be-released Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set.  Oh my gosh - I'm in LOVE!  Which means, love is definitely in the air at my house!

Stampin' Up! Celebrate Sunflowers card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #YCC108 #YourCreativeConnection

How'd She DO That? Celebrate Sunflowers Card
(everything list in red is new)

  • Stamps: Celebrate Sunflowers, Lovely You Bundle (for greeting and punched label)
  • Paper:
    • Whisper White Thick (11" x 4-1/4" card base) 
    • Bumblebee (3"x 3")
    • Early Espresso (1" x 4-1/2" for punch)
  • Ink:  Early Espresso, Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush
  • OtherLovely Labels Pick a Punch,  Gilded Gems, SNAIL & Stampin' Dimensionals

Stampin' Up! Celebrate Sunflowers card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #YCC108 #YourCreativeConnection

DOstamping Tips:

  • After stamping the sunflower, use Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to move/color in the flower center (I thought this made it look more realistic)
  • To stamp the leaf, I created a "mask" of the sunflower so the flower would appear like it's showing from under the flower.
  • To create the punched layer behind the focal piece, use the soon-to-be-release Lovely Labels Pick a Punch to cut each end of the 1" x 4-1/2" piece of cardstock.  

I'm really lovin' how the combination of these fun new products came together for this quick and cute card.  I look forward to sharing my other Celebrate Sunshine cards with you soon...after the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog is released June 3.  

In the meantime, be sure to check out more creativity at our next stop on Your Creative Connection tour, Barbara Meyer.

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!

Music from the Heart rainbow card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #musicfromtheheart #ycc105

How'd She DO That? Music of the Heart Rainbow card

  • Stamps:  Music from the Heart, Beautiful You
  • Paper:
    • Whisper White Thick (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base) 
    • Whisper White (3-7/8"  x  5-1/8")  
    • Basic Black or Highland Heather (4" x 5-1/4")
  • Ink:  Tuxedo Black Memento, Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Highland Heather, Pumpkin Pie, Bermuda Bay
  • Other:  Heart Epoxy Drops,   SNAIL

Music from the Heart rainbow card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #musicfromtheheart #ycc105

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.

Music from the Heart rainbow card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #musicfromtheheart #ycc105

What do you think?  Do you prefer card #1 or card #2?

Get out a rainbow of colors and the Music from the Heart stamp set, and have fun creating your own rainbow of color card!

In the meantime, be sure to check out more rainbow creativity at the next stop on Your Creative Connection tour, Barbara Meyer.

I can sing a rainbow,
sing a rainbow,
sing along with me.

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

I pulled out some new products that demonstrators are playing with right now...Ornate Garden Suite coming April 1.   It has beautiful frame dies and I thought it would be the perfect choice for today's Your Creative Connection theme: Gift Cards!

DOstamping Tips:

  • Stamp sentiment (from So Sentimental stamp set) near the right edge.  
  • Ink of flower by tapping near the edge of the ink pads.  Stamp and blend color with Wink of Stella Glitter Brush
  • Layer two small pieces of DSP and Gold Foil together, then die cut using Glue Dots at the very edge (so the gift card will fit)
  • Thread 7" of ribbon thru the die cut and adhere on the back side.
