Creative Inking Blog Hop — Stampin' Up! Dies Have it With an Explosion Treat Box

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  Today, our amazing team of Creative Inking designers have created a bundle of projects featuring our large collection of Stampin' Up! Dies that greatly assist with creativity and allow lots more fun while your at it!  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 and amazing projects.

I'm going to warn you (if you don't already know this about me) that I LUV it when Stampin' Up! introduces a stamp set that is bundled with a coordinating set of dies!  **squeal**  I mean, how much easier can papercrafting get?  Plus, it just makes my heart go pitter-patter knowing that there is going something in those set of dies that can be used outside of the box than originally intended.  For this project, I'm featuring the Pansy Patch Suite of products...the Pansy Patch stamps, Pansy Dies, and the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper.

For some regions of the United States, summer is quickly coming to a close because the next school season is on the horizon!  GASP!!  For my project, I'm featuring a fun treat package to hand out to teachers, daycare providers, the bank associates that greet me at the drive-up window, and the list goes on.  It's called an Explosion Treat Box and is super simple to set up and put together.

Plus, this fun project is perfect for helping me use all those beautiful designer series papers I have in my stash.  The Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper is full of color to hold this yummy Star Cookie!  This little treat box only requires 4 score lines using the Simply Scored Tool, no cutting, and loads of fun choosing which Pansies you want to die cut to decorate your box top.  To top the charts using Stampin' Dies...I'm showcasing the following — Stitched So Sweetly largest scallop die for the box top, the Tailor Made Tags Dies for the sentiment, and of course, the Pansy Dies to cut flowers directly from the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper.  LOVE!!

The best part about the Pansy Petals Designer Series paper pack—it includes all of the 2021-2023 In Colors, so the possibilities of color combinations is almost endless!  So. Much. Fun!!  AND, you can get it on sale during the Stampin' Up! Designer Series paper sale...now through August 2, 2021.  Don't miss out stocking up so that you can make lots of these explosion treat boxes.

For all the details and step-by-step instructions on how to create this fun Explosion Treat Box, watch the video tutorial I've created and posted on my YouTube Channel — Stampin' Dreams—Lori Mueller.

Stampin' Dreams Shopping Product List


Happy Birthday America — Red-White-Blue Pinwheel Tower Card

Happy Birthday to America!!  God Bless the Red-White & Blue and to all of our military men and women who serve our country proudly.

Biggest Wish-America Birthday Stamps-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04551

Today's card creation is a super fun one as it shows off a couple of different styles and techniques.  The Biggest Wish stamp set and Stitched Stars Dies are the highlighting the main attraction to show off the Red-White & Blue color scheme.

Biggest Wish-America Birthday Blends-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04562
The first technique to display is the fabulous watercoloring with Stampin' Blends and Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol.  One important note...you'll want to purchase and use the 91% Alcohol content product in order to get the desired results of the watercolor effect.  When I used a lower percentage, the colors ran a lot more and ended up bleeding and mixing more than I desired.

Biggest Wish-America Birthday Stars-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04544

Check out this boomer of a fun-fold technique!!  It's been name the "Pinwheel Tower" card design/fold.  This interactive card definitely proclaims a huge WOW factor.  It's super easy to assemble, too.  The Basic White Stitched Stars Die rests upon a pattern of designer paper from the FREE with qualifying party called Pattern Party.  If you'd like to Host an in-person or virtual Stampin' Up! party to earn the 48-sheet pack for free, give me a holler!

Biggest Wish-America Birthday Flat Envelope-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04553

To add a little more festivity for the occasion, use the little stars that come out of the die to decorate one of the side panels.

Biggest Wish-America Birthday Tag-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04557
The sentiments from the Biggest Wish set adds on a whole other level of fun!  The 'Birthday' sentiment was inked in Misty Moonlight and stamped off two times before stamping the third time onto the Basic White strip.  This was to make sure the 'happy', inked in Real Red, would stand out from the big bold lettering of the first stamp.

For all the details and step-by-step instructions on how to create this card, watch the replay of my Facebook Live.  I get together with crafters for a new episode of Sunday Stampin' Dreams each Sunday at 2:30P.

I hope you give this fun-fold and coloring technique a try!  You are going to be addicted, I'm sure!  These interactive cards are always a big bang for you and your recipients.  Happy 4th; and stay safe, my friends!

Happy Father's Day to all the Dad's in the world.  Most men I know really enjoy covering their locks of hair with some sort of a ball cap.  My father is no exception!  He wears one every single day that he is working on the farm or trucking down the road.  So, when I saw the new Hats Off stamps and coordinating Hat Builder Dies, I knew that bundle would be landing in my creative space.

CreativeInkingHop-Hats Off Fancy Fold Notecard Stamps-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04532

I chose to make a cute note card that works like a mini easel card.  It's a fun fold that allows the recipient to prop their card on the desk or end table for display.
