Jan2018-TeamStampIt-Header

This month's hop theme is all about the Valentines Day!  This is one holiday that I find it fun to create for and treat holders are my go-to projects to start designing.  There's a super cute bundle in the January-June 2021 Mini catalog that includes called Hearts & Kisses.  The lips, background wash and fun sentiment images are what drew me to purchase it, plus, there is a coordinating punch — Kisses Punch.

As I said, I love to create treat holders for Valentines.  There is always fun wrapped chocolates or giftable trinkets and small notepads to upcycle and decorate using our stamps, paper and ink.  You can create two holders from one sheet of cardstock using the pattern I've created.  My main color palette focuses on the Love You Always Foil Sheets — Blushing Bride, Rococo Rose, and Sahara Sand — sooo pretty!  The patterned paper used comes from the True Love Designer Series Paper pack.  The top flap tucks in behind the ribbon used as a belly band.

Look at the beauty of coordinating products — Blushing Bride Foil with the Blushing Bride Cardstock and the solid side of the Blushing Bride 3/8" Metallic Ribbon

StampItHop-Hearts Kisses KitKat Holder Lips Close-Lori Stampin Dreams-DSC03971

A romantic evening always called for a pair of shiny lips with a layer of Lip Gloss, right?!!  I was able to create a set of lips with Lip Gloss when I clear embossed the Blushing Bride ink.  Punch them out with the coordinating Kiss Punch and set in place.  For this particular holder, the sentiment was inked with Rococo Rose and clear embossed and tucked behind the lips.  Can you see how pretty the Rococo Rose Foil paper is on the Sahara Sand treat holder?  **squeal**

Would you like to create a bundle of these KitKat Treat Holders?  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.

Creative Inking Blog Hop — Darling Donkeys Celebrate Sale-A-Bration

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  Today, our wonderful Creative Inking designers have a bundle of projects inspired by the current Sale-A-Bration Season. So, the theme of our blog is "Celebrate Sale-A-Bration".  You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the very talented Bj Peters' 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.

During this (almost) year-long pandemic, the one diagnosis that has not stopped, or slowed down, are the dreaded uttered words ... "you have Cancer".  A day that one will never forget. Outside of having friends and family by your side to help keep your spirits high during the days of chemo treatments, daily chores around the house and moments of saddness and bleh...there is one image in the Darling Donkeys stamp set that will brighten your day to help kick Cancer to the curb.    

CreativeInkingHop-Darling Donkey Cancer-Lori Stampin Dreams-DSC03980
 
When I first saw the Darling Donkeys stamp set in the Sale-A-Bration brochure, this particular Donkey gave me the brightest vision to create this card.  The cardbase is Sahara Sand with two different patterns of the Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper (also a Sale-A-Bration freebie) layered onto Soft Suede cardstock.  I chose to go outside the traditional rectangular or square layering of the designer paper because I wanted the Darling Donkey to be the focus and not get lost in all the circles.
 
CreativeInkingHop-Darling Donkeys Cancer Close-Lori Stampin Dreams-DSC03988
 
I inked the donkey image with Early Espresso and colored with Stampin' Blends (Crumb Cake–light & dark; Smoky Slate–light & dark; and, Light Soft Suede).  After hand cutting the image, I adhered him to a Vellum Circle die cut from the Layering Circles Dies set that measures 1-7/8" using Stampin' Dimensionals.  I tucked the sentiment inked with Rococo Rose and die cut with a die from the Tasteful Labels Dies set between the donkey and Vellum circle.
 
CreativeInkingHop-Darling Donkeys Cancer Flat-Lori Stampin Dreams-DSC03986
 

The Playful Alphabet Dies were perfect to cut from Sahara Sand cardstock that was adhered to a sheet of Foam Adhesive.  They all rest on the smallest scallop rectangle layer die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies set that was cut from Soft Suede cardstock.


CreativeInkingHop-Darling Donkey Cancer RT-Lori Stampin Dreams-DSC03983
Before setting everything into place, I added a strand of the Braided Linen Trim to hide the seam connecting the two patterned papers.  It was perfect color to compliment the card base and Playful Alphabet letters.  Cancer stinks!  but with good spirits, a strong faith, tons of support from family and friends, and the Darling Donkeys...cancer will not win!

If you enjoyed this project, I'd love to have you join me each Sunday afternoon at 2:30P (CST) for my Sunday Stampin' Dreams facebook Live demonstrations.  To make sure you receive notifications when I post announcements, events, and creations using all my favorite Stampin' Up! products, click the "Like" and "Follow"buttons on my business page Lori Dreams Stampin'.

OSAT Blog Hop — Say Hello to Sweet Strawberry

Good morning stampers and paper crafters!  Welcome to January and our 1st 2021 One Stamp At a Time (OSAT) Design Team Blog Hop.  My name is Lori Mueller (stampindreams.com) and I'm excited you've stopped by.  This may be your first stop on the hop, or you may have hopped over here from the previous OSAT designer. Either way, in order to view all of the blog participants sharing their wonderful project(s), click on the next person in line within the list of blogger's posted at the end.  We've got some amazing projects to share with you!

OSAT2020HeaderOur January theme is "Say Hello to", so let me introduce you to my Sweet Strawberry card.  This set comes from the new January-June 2021 Mini catalog and has a coordinating Strawberry Builder Punch.  I'm excited to share with you how I how put this beauty together.

OSATHop-Sweet Strawberry Front-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC03948
The new Berry Delightful Designer Series paper pack is filled with a variety of hand painted berries and vines images that were transformed into the lovely designer crafting paper.  It showcases a large variety of our color palette—displaying soft and bold tones.  The best part is that you can get this paper pack for free (along with a complimentary Berry Blessings stamp set) with a $100 order during Sale-A-Bration.

OSATHop-Sweet Strawberry Flat-Stampin Dreams Lori MuellerDSC03954
I chose to pull out the Garden Green, Daffodil Delight and Real Red with a Sahara Sand card base.  The strawberry images and leaves are a 2-step process...one image is the bolder outline of the fruit and leaf.  The 2nd image is the 'filler' color of the fruit.  I used the Garden Green cardstock as the filler for the leaf with the outline image stamped with Shaded Spruce ink.

OSATHop-Sweet Strawberry Close-Stampin Dreams Lori MuellerDSC03959

To help tone down the busy-ness of the strawberry patterned paper, I lined up 3 strips of Garden Green cardstock to reflect the side of a wagon or a bushel basket.  The stamped strawberries are popped up with dimensionals on Daffodil Delight cardstock that was punched with the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch.  For some texture, I ran them through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine with the Tasteful Textiles Embossing Folder.

OSATHop-Sweet Strawberry Left-Stampin Dreams Lori MuellerDSC03951

The lovely sentiment was inked with Garden Green and accented with a 1/8" strip of Real Red cardstock before set into place with Dimensionals.  For a bit of bling, the strawberries were adorned with the smallest Gold Glitter Enamel Dots in the package.  I have to tell you, while creating this card, I got hungry for strawberries!  YUM!


At this time, you are now ready to hop on over to the next OSAT designers blog.  You won't want to miss traveling on as I know they will have something fun, cute and exciting to share with you.  If you prefer to work your way backwards, you can click your way through the blog list found below.  Either way, be sure to work your way through all of the blogs so you don’t miss a thing!
