Creative Inking Blog Hop — A Quite Curvy Christmas Wreath

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  It's that time of year where we start planning for the biggest holiday of the year...Christmas!  Our amazing Creative Inking designers have a bundle of inspirational projects themed as "Christmas Cards".  You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the very talented Susan Campfields' blog. Please be sure to click the 'Next' button (found below) to move along the Creative Inking blog hop to see all the beautiful projects.

I've been aching to get my Curvy Christmas stamps inky and the bow branch image was the top of my list to use. 

CreativeInkingHop-CurvyChristmasWreath-Lori-DSC03491
 
In the back of my head, I remembered a card I designed for a past stamp class using an evergreen-type image.  So, I used that as my inspiration for today's card share.  I love to create non-traditional sized cards, and it's been a while since I've shown off a square card.  This one is 4-1/4" square and will fit perfectly into Stampin' Up!'s A2 sized envelopes.  The colors of Sahara Sand, Cherry Cobbler, and Shaded Spruce originate from the Classic Christmas Designer Series paper pack (also part of the Curvy Celebrations Suite).
 
CreativeInkingHop-CurvyChristmasWreathClose-Lori-DSC03496
 
I used my trusty Stamparatus to help create the perfectly aligned Shaded Spruce wreath.  Once you get the rotation pattern set, this will be a cinch to mass produce.  The Cherry Cobbler sprig die cuts were made with a die from the Curvy Dies.  This layout was calling for a dainty, yet rustic accessory, so I took some Linen Thread and unwound the fibers before tucking behind the Champagne Foil Layering Scallop Circle die cut.

The sentiment was inked with Cherry Cobbler, stamped onto a strip of Whisper White and hand cut to form the wavy feature of the sentiment.  There needed to be some berries or 'ornaments' adorning the wreath, so I colored our Basic Pearls using the Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends and then scattered them throughout.  Simply lovely!

Want to know how this card came together?  Here's my Facebook Live demonstration I did today sharing tips and tricks on how it all went together.

Stamp It Blog Hop — Banner Year Thanksgiving

Hello stampers and crafty friends! I'm so happy you are here.  Welcome to our October Stamp It Blog Hop!  You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from one of the other Stamp It members blog...either way, make sure to click the blog next in line to move along the hop and not miss all of the great inspiration.

October2016-TeamStampIt-Header

This month's hop theme is a season I'm not quite ready for...Thanksgiving Theme!  I know that November falls in our lap tomorrow morning, and we've already had our first snowfall of 3 inches, but it just doesn't seem like Thanksgiving should be right around the corner.  The Banner Year stamp set is filled with a ton of different images that cover almost every holiday within the calendar year.

StampItHop-Banner Year Thanksgiving-Lori-DSC03128
I chose a variety of my favorites to assemble this little simple ensemble.  The Pumpkin Pie panel shows off the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing folder, which embodies the gathering of family and friends.  This was layered at an angle onto a piece of Cajun Craze cardstock and then adhered to the front of Whisper White Thick card base.

StampItHop-Banner Year Thanksgiving Close-Lori-DSC03137

The main focal point is made up of a lot of scrap strips — Plaid Tidings Designer Series paper, Cajun Craze cardstock and Gold Foil paper.  The little squirrel was stamped with Soft Suede and die cut from the larger scalloped circle found in the Tasteful Labels Dies set.

StampItHop-Banner Year Thanksgiving RT-Lori-DSC03130

For a little contrast color, I die cut the banner from Just Jade cardstock and garnished with Linen Thread before setting into place with Stampin' Dimensionals.  The little squirrel was set with Stampin' Dimensionals with the sentiment ink in Cajun Craze onto Whisper White and cut apart for added character.  Sooo cute! A simple layout that provides a lot of warmth of home.

Would you like to create this super cute Thanksgiving card?  I have posted the entire supply list below and made it easy for you to click on any of the images to add to your shopping cart from my online store.  I would be so very grateful to you and your support for shopping with me.  Check out my Dreamers Loyalty Reward Program...I love what I do and very much appreciate YOU.  So, I pay it back and reward my loyal customers with a FREE shopping spree.

This class was designed as a fundraiser—Stamp Out Breast Cancer! October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and the proceeds from this class will be going to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation to help fund the work of those searching for a cure. This cause is very near and dear to my heart because 11 years ago, I traveled the lengthy battle of breast cancer. I'm a survivor and extremely thankful to be here today; so I'm dedicating this to everyone who is currently fighting the battle.
