Banners For You Bundle Halloween card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #stamping #papercrafting  #YCC116 #YourCreativeConnection

DOstamping Tips:

  1. Create your own background paper by collaging images.
  2. Pick out three images and three colors.
  3. Stamp one image at a time, randomly all over the white panel.  Then move on to each image/color until your paper is filled as desired. 
  4. Stamp-off some images to varying the colors (like the pumpkin image)
  5. Don't forget about the Holiday Rhinestones - there's lots of colors to coordinate with a variety of projects!

The Banners For You is not just for Halloween.  It also includes images for fall, Thanksgiving, Christmas & Valentine's Day, making it a very versatile set.  PLUS it's bundled with my favorite new punch, Banner's Pick a Punch!!

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.
  5. Remove mask.
  6. Finish off by using Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to move color around on the leaves.

  • I was looking for a Designer Series Paper to coordinate with the Dove of Hope stamp set.
  • I was giddy when I recalled that the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper carried over from last year- yay!
  • It's the perfect match - don't you think?

Your Creative Connection #YCC114: Strong & Beautiful

Welcome to another Your Creative Connection tour, #YCC114.  Our theme today is: Shades of Black & White

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

For today's challenge, I reached for the NEW Magic in This Night Designer Series Paper.  The pattern paper was designed for Halloween, but there are several patterns that could be used all-year long!  Take a look...

Stampin' Up! Strong & Beautiful with Magic in the Night Designer Series Paper card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #stamping #papercrafting  #YCC114 #YourCreativeConnection

How'd She DO That? Strong & Beautiful card

  • StampsStrong & Beautiful
  • Paper
    • Basic Gray (4-1/4" x 11" card base)
    • Blackberry Bliss (4" x 5-1/4" and scrap for banner shape die from Tasteful Labels)
    • Smoky Slate (scrap for Stitched So Sweetly Die for the sentiment)
    • Magic in this Night Designer Series Paper (two of 2" x 3")
  • Ink:  Blackberry Bliss, Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush
  • Other:  Tasteful Labels Dies, Stitched So Sweetly Dies, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Stampin' Seal, Mini Stampin' Dimensionals

Stampin' Up! Strong & Beautiful with Magic in the Night Designer Series Paper card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #stamping #papercrafting  #YCC114 #YourCreativeConnection

If you have seen this paper, you might be wondering where the coloring on the flowers came from.  I took some liberties with the challenge of black and white, and added Blackberry Bliss (ha...it has black in it's name, right?!)  See my tips for more information.


DOstamping Tips:

  • For coloring the Magic in This Night Designer Series Paper , I used a Blackberry Bliss ink pad and the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.  
    • While the pad is closed - squeeze the lid into the pad and then open to find a "pool" of ink in the lid.
    • Pick up some ink with the Glitter Brush to add color and glitter to the flowers at the same time.
    • This card looks amazing in real life!
  • The Blackberry Bliss banner ends come from a single banner die from the Tasteful Labels Dies - just cut in half.

I have to admit, without this challenge I would have never made a card like this.  And I'm SO happy with the results.  Give this challenge a try for yourself.

If you like Black & White cards, then you'll definitely want to add the Magic in This Night Designer Series Paper to your collection

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")

    • Peony Garden Designer Series Paper (two of 1" x 4")
  • Ink:  Gray Granite, Petal Pink

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.

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 Phrases 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.
