Stamp It Blog Hop — Arrange A Wreath for Easter Photos

Good morning stampers and crafty friends! I'm so happy you have stopped by.  Welcome to our March 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.

This month's theme is focusing around anything related to Easter.  I decided to work on a home decor piece that's been milling in my head...a functional photo holder featuring the Arrange A Wreath Bundle.

StampItHop-Arrange A Wreath Easter Photo-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04286
Easter is one of my favorite holidays...started the day with church, followed by a fun Easter egg hunt, then filled our bellies with a homemade meal.  A while ago, I had up this wooden photo holder at a huge discount and my dream was to transform it into a mini 'Sampler' of sorts.

StampItHop-Arrange A Wreath Easter Photo Holder Black-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04291 StampItHop-Arrange A Wreath Easter Sampler Back-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04293

To start my Photo Holder Sampler, I cut a piece of Basic Black cardstock the same size as the original holder.  This is used as an added stability factor and to start adding all the components for the transformation to Easter.

StampItHop-Arrange A Wreath Easter Sampler Photo Flat-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04289

To lighten up the background, I layered on a piece of Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper with Liquid Glue to the Basic Black piece.  The Wreath is made up of a Pear Pizzazz wreath die cut and glued to the background.  The eggs are inked with Poppy Parade, Bumble Bee and Highland Heather, die cut and matched up in pairs before arranging them on the wreath.  They are popped up and set in place with Stampin' Dimensionals.  For a little more Spring, I die cut the smallest flower from Mango Melody, set in place with Liquid Glue and topped with Pearl Basic Jewels.

 

StampItHop-Arrange A Wreath Easter Photo Sampler-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04294

The Easter sentiment was inked using Poppy Parade and Pear Pizzazz Stampin' Write Markers and stamped onto Basic White cardstock.  It was die cut with the Layering Circles Dies and layered onto a scalloped Layering Circle.  For a little softness, I added some Whisper White 1/4" Crinkled Ribbon behind the sentiment layer before setting into place with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Lastly, the Sampler piece is attached to the wooden Photo Holder with Velcro, which makes it easy to remove and add the next month holiday/occasion you wish to display.

Would you like to re-create this super cute Photo Sampler Holder?  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 — You Are Amazing Masculine Congrats

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  Today, our wonderful Creative Inking designers have a bundle of projects featuring the men in our lives.  I have been playing with a stamp set that coordinates with a Project Kit called You Are Amazing.  You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the very talented MJ Peters' blog. Please be sure to click the 'Next' button (found below) to move along the Creative Inking blog hop to see all the beautifulamazing projects.

CreativeInking-HeaderImage

There is so much potential for the You Are Amazing stamp set...well beyond the initial idea of the original project kit that is found on page 7 of the January-June 2021 Mini catalog.  The sentiments are versatile for any gender and any age.  One of my young students has recently achieved a goal he has worked super hard for during the last 6 months, and I'm sooo proud of him.  I know this card will bring a big fat grin on his face.

CreativeInking-You Are Amazing Men Congrats EaselLeft-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04272
 
It has been forever since I've made an easel card.  Interactive cards are always intriguing for the creator, as well as, the recipient.  The cardbase is Smoky Slate with a Stitched Rectangle created as a frame cut from one of the patterns from the Well Suited Designer Series Paper pack.  After creating the frame, I added a piece of Window Sheet to the back and die cut another Stitched Rectangle frame from Night of Navy cardstock to give the back a finished look from the back side.  The Window Sheet is used to help make the frame sturdy when propped up as an easel.
 
CreativeInking-You Are Amazing Men Congrats Upright-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04275
 

The cardbase front is scored at 2-3/4" before adhering the bottom half of the window frame.  The sentiment was inked with Stampin' Write Markers:  Cajun Craze, Night of Navy and Smoky Slate and die cut with the 2-5/8" Layering Circle die.  For balance, I added a 1/2" strip of Night of Navy and some Gold Thread from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack before adding the sentiment with Stampin' Dimensionals.

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'.



 

So with one click you can be on your way to soak in some more inspiration showcasing more "Masculine" creations using supplies from any of the current catalog from the rest of the group.  Your next stop on the hop will be with our very creative, Linda Bauwin.  I know her creation will be amazing...she always shares a fantastic creation (or two) to share with everyone. Click on the 'Next' button and you'll be at your next stop.  Have fun filling your inspiration bucket...don't forget to come back real soon.  :)

Stamp It Blog Hop — Final Sale-A-Bration Spring Fling to Heal Your Heart

Good morning stampers and crafty friends! I'm so happy you have stopped by.  Welcome to our February 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.

Feb2015-TeamStampIt-Header


It's so hard to believe that Sale-A-Bration ends tomorrow at midnight!  YIKES!  With that said, that's what our hop theme is all about the Final Sale-A-Bration Spring Fling!  This last week, I attended a funeral for my long-time BFF's father.  The first thing I thought of was the Brushed Blooms Bundle and Heal Your Heart stamp sets.  The Heal Your Heart stamps are free with a $50 order during Sale-A-Bration and has several sentiments that fit this sad occasion.

StampItHop-Brushed Blooms-Heal Your Heart Flat-Stampin Dreams Lori-DSC04179

I'm still on a Brushed Blooms kick and couldn't resist creating a card that brought the two sets together.  I just love the images and dies from this bundle, so I brought in some of the True Love Designer Series Paper that was cut with the 2nd to largest scallop stitched rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies set.  To tone down the starkness of the Basic Black, I overlayed a piece of Vellum cardstock.

StampItHop-Brushed Blooms-Heal Your Heart Sympathy Close-Stampin Dreams Lori-DSC04182

I borrowed some inspiration for the Basic White layer from the January-June 2021 mini catalog (page 28).  It consists of a mix of Mint Macaron brushstrokes and Beautiful Brushstrokes Dies.  I first stamped the image from the Brushed Blooms stamp set randomly across the page and filled in with the brushstrokes die pieces.  Then used the little polka dot image inked with Memento, stamped off once, and stamped randomly across the whole area.  Super fun to create your own backgrounds using stamps and dies.

StampItHop-Brushed Blooms-Heal Your Heart Sympathy Front-Stampin Dreams Lori-DSC04183

The flower arrangement is made up of Mango Melody and Flirty Flamingo with Soft Sea Foam leaves and Mint Macaron leaf veins...all cut with dies from the Beautiful Brushstrokes Dies set.  For a little softness, I accented the flowers with some White Baker's Twine from the Snail Mail Twine Combo pack.  The sentiment from Heal Your Heart was inked with Memento and trimmed and popped up with Dimensionals.

Would you like to re-create this Sympathy 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.
