Hello stamper and crafter friends! Welcome to my crafty spot on the Creative Inking Blog Hop for the month of May! I am super excited to share my creation because I've been Stampin' Dreams for a few days now. This months theme is to play with our new 2018-2019 Stampin' Up! pre-order goodies!! **squeal** l have to tell you that it was a struggle trying to figure out just which 'toys' to play with first, but I managed to narrow it down. Do you want to see? haha...dumb question, I know! :)
You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the very talented Sandy Mott's blog.

If you get off track at any time, the full line up below will help you move along from blog to blog.
Before choosing which stamp set, dies and other goodies, I decided to choose my color combination. Doesn't this color combination just look yummy? I wanted to make sure that I was using at least 1-2 new or returning colors, because let's face it...the regular colors that we have had around for awhile...well, have been around for a while. :) My main focus is geared towards a young couple who will be exchanging their vows next month. I wanted something beautiful, intricate, and pretty darned special.
- The patterned background comes from the amazing Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper. WOW!! There are 8 sheets and each sheet has a TON of these laser-cut patterns...many different designs. After I cut this one down, I decided to back it with So Saffron and pop it up onto the base using Stampin' Dimensionals. It measures 3-3/8" x 4-7/8".
- The stamp set is called "Stitched All Around" and it has a pretty cool coordinating set of dies to go along with it. YEAH!! The dies are called "Stitched Labels Framelits". Look at how well the framed die accentuates the laser-cut background...just like a new couple getting married...truly meant to be together. :)
- The sentiment was inked with Memento Black ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock and die cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits dies set. I wanted this part to help bring attention to the detailed laser-cut piece....like it really needs it. HA!
- I absolutely LOVE the delicacy of this card. I have planned to pass it onto a lovely couple who has invited us to their wedding next month. This layout could easy be re-created using their wedding colors, too. Pretty-pretty-pretty!!
And, there you have it!! I topped it off with some Gold Metallic Thread and Share What You Love Artisan Pearls. A wedding card isn't complete without pearls, right?!! :)
