PPXCrew-BlogHop-Header

Hello my stamping friends!  Welcome to another series of our PPX Crew Monthly Blog Hop!  I'm very happy you have stopped by because our Crew is a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who are collaborating to create alternate projects using the supplies (plus, additional supplies) that come with our monthly Paper Pumpkin kits.  Each month, my Paper Pumpkin subscribers and members of my Stampin' Up! family of demonstrators receive exclusive tutorials to beautiful alternate projects created by our PPX Crew.  Well, now we are creating a 2nd alternate project that is being shared with everyone!

This month's blog hop features the super cute Gifts Galore (November 2021) kit.  'Tis the season for gift giving, so my project features our Acetate Card Boxes that are not just for filling with handmade cards.  They're perfect for filling with a mix of chocolates, too.  I have used all of the supplies that came with my kit, so I'm going to give several images from the stamp set lots of inky love.

PPXHop-Nov Gifts Galore Nugget Box Left-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-IMG_1761

My list of treat packages needed is quite long...lots of teachers, co-workers and Stampin' Up! family members to create something special for.  I really love the color palette that is part of the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series paper—Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent, Cherry Cobbler and Sahara Sand make it easy to create gifts for any gender.

PPXHop-Nov Gifts Galore Nugget Box Open-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-IMG_1766
To get the most treat packages with one package of Acetate Card Boxes, I cut them in half and created a new topper for the open end.  The other end of the box will be secured with the tabs and flap enclosure.  Instead of leaving the Evening Evergreen topper all straight and proper, I fancied up the front flap using the scalloped Basic Border Dies.  I then matched it up with the same die cut with a pretty pattern of designer paper.  Fill it with some designer paper wrapped Hershey Nuggets...and, a fun gift card to boot!

PPXHop-Nov Gifts Galore Nugget Box Back-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-IMG_1765

The Evening Evergreen layer is adhered to the inside of the Acetate Box, so I added a piece of Designer Series Paper to the outside back of the box using Tear & Tape.  This is to hide the adhesive used to hold the Evening Evergreen piece to the inside of the box.

PPXHop-Nov Gifts Galore Nugget Box FlatRT-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-IMG_1763
To hold all the goodies in the box, wrap some Soft Succulent Open Weave ribbon around the flap area and tie in a know.  Stamp the gift image with Cherry Cobbler and Soft Succulent ink, fussy cut and adhere to the front with Dimensionals.  I did ink the ribbon image in the same coordinating colors as the gift package image, fussy cut them and adhered to the top of each gift.  The sentiment was inked with Evening Evergreen, fussy cut and added to the gift arrangement using a mix of Dimensionals and Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

At this time, you are now ready to hop on over to the next PPX Crew 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!

Stampin' Up! Trip Achievers Blog Hop — Harvest Meadows Healing Thoughts

GV Blog Hop Banner-WesternCaribbean

Welcome to the Grand Vacation Trip Achievers Blog Hop for November. The theme for the hop is anything currently offered in our catalogs and we are all excited to share some beautifully handcrafted projects with you!

You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the previous person to me on the list. Please be sure to click the person after me to move along the blog hop. If you get off track at any time, the full line up below will help you move along from blog to blog.  I was inspired to create my card share from two different sources… a card pictured in the Mini Catalog (Page 54) and a non-Stampin’ Up’ card makers blog.

Harvest Meadows Sympathy-Watercolor RT-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC05074

Creative Tips:

  • I am using a mix of Stampin' Up!'s new papers listed with the Harvest Meadow Suite.  The Fall season is my utmost favorite season and the Harvest Meadow designer papers really hit the mark with a lovely combination of colors and patterns. I really love the Cork Specialty paper! I am still in awe how a paper can replicate the actual feel and texture of a sheet real cork!  I threw in a couple layers of Vellum cardstock to soften the patterns; and, die cut all layers with the same rounded Basic Borders Die.

Harvest Meadows Sympathy-Watercolor Supplies-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC05071

  • Bring on the watercolor!!  Instead of using the Harvest Dies to die cut straight from cardstock or designer paper, I decided to watercolor pieces of Basic White cardstock with Cajun Craze, Bumblebee and Soft Succulent ink.

Harvest Meadows Sympathy-Watercolor Close-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC05084

  • Once the paper had dried, dies run through my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine, I used my Soft Suede Stampin' Write marker to splatter ink onto the Fall elements. They were arranged and set in place with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Harvest Meadows Sympathy-Watercolor LT-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC05075

The sentiment comes from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set, inked with Soft Suede and stamped onto Basic White cardstock. Once die cut with label die from Harvest Dies set, it was added to the card front with Dimensionals.

PPX Crew Blog Hop — October Peaceful Christmas Alternate Holiday Cheer

PPXCrew-BlogHop-Header

Hello my stamping friends!  Welcome to another series of our PPX Crew Monthly Blog Hop!  I'm very happy for your visit here.  Our Crew is a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who are collaborating to create alternate projects using the supplies (plus, additional supplies) that come with our monthly Paper Pumpkin kits.  Each month, my Paper Pumpkin subscribers and members of my Stampin' Up! family of demonstrators receive exclusive tutorials to beautiful alternate projects created by our PPX Crew.  Well, now we are creating a 2nd alternate project that is being shared with everyone!

PPXHop-Oct Peaceful Christmas Step Card-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05030

1021_PP_THUMBNAIL

1021_PP_TOOLKIT_STAMPARTWORK

This month's blog hop features the beautiful Peaceful Christmas (October 2021) kit.  My project features a fun-fold technique called the Stair-step fold, which was inspired by some of the leftover element pieces I had saved away in the kit.  I'm also using a couple of stamp images from the set that were not used as part of the original card designs.

PPXHop-Oct Peaceful Christmas Step Card RT-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05031

Even though there were Shaded Spruce card bases included in the kit, I chose to use regular Shaded Spruce cardstock as I needed a base that was not pre-scored.  The Buffalo Check paper were leftover strips that I matted with Silver Foil Paper.  To highlight the card front, I cut one half of the Basic Gray festive cardbases down to 3-1/4 x 4 and matted with Silver Foil paper.  To compliment the card front, I cut the Basic Gray woodgrain element in half and layered on the 'front step' of the card.

PPXHop-Oct Peaceful Christmas Step Card Open-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05035

To create the Stair-step feature of your card, the Shaded Spruce cardbase is cut 1-inch inside of each long end starting at the 1-inch mark from one short end through to the 5-1/4" mark.  Then, take your scoring tool on your trimmer and score at 1", 2", 4-1/4" and 5-1/4".  The only section that is scored at the 4-1/4" mark is the section in the middle (do not score on the 1" side strips at 4-1/4".   The other score lines should only fall on the 1" strip on each long end side.  Score and burnish the folds to create a 'stair step' effect.  I inked the row of evergreen trees with Shaded Spruce ink (included with kit), stamped onto a piece of Basic White cardstock (3-1/4 x 4), and set in place to finish the inside of the card.

PPXHop-Oct Peaceful Christmas Step Card LT-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05033

I used the Fancy Label Punch for the Peaceful Christmas sentiment, which was very similar to size and shape of the sentiment tags that were included with the kit.  The red banner element was adhered to the back of the sentiment tag and added to the card front using Dimensionals.  The final dressing of the card includes a glittering Enamel Gem and a little bow made from the Real Red Baker's Twine—both included in the kit.

At this time, you are now ready to hop on over to the next PPX Crew 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!
