Blog Button-Hop Through

Hello Friends!!  Welcome to my blog share as a member of the NEW AT SU! Blog hop! We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world who are excited to share our creative paper crafting ideas with you. Today, we have a variety of occasions that we are featuring…a sure way to fill your inspiration bucket.  I'm highlighting the Slim Sayings Bundle found in the 2022 January-June Mini Catalog along with the In Good Taste 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper that is retiring from the Annual catalog.

High School graduations are just around the corner!! My favorite part creating a card for the graduate is to use their school colors…always makes it extra special! The background is a subtle piece of In Good Taste Designer Paper that has a bit of natural hue to it that makes this card earthy and vintage. I matted it with Merry Merlot cardstock and added to the Basic White Thick card base (measures 4-1/4 x 11))

You May be pondering on the Chevron die and wondering ’hey, I thought that die was longer than that’! You are correct!! I love when some dies have the allowance to lengthen or shorten to fit a particular creation. The Misty Moonlight strips were popped up with Dimensionals…I love dimension! The sentiment was inked with Misty Moonlight and Merry Merlot markers, stamped onto Basic White and die cut with Layering Circles Dies.  I think this graduate is going to keep this gem for a long time!

PPX Crew Blog Hop — March Alternate Paper Pumpkin Beyond The Horizons Birthday Card

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 (Lori's Dream Team) receive exclusive tutorials to beautiful alternate projects created by our PPX Crew.  Since we are having so much fun sharing exclusive alternate projects with our subscribers, we are creating a 2nd alternate project that is being shared with everyone! YAY!

This month's blog hop features the nature-inspired Beyond The Horizons (March 2022) kit.  This time of year is always an extra special kit because we are celebrating Paper Pumpkin's birthday!  TOOT-TOOT!

Free Stamp Set Image

Not only do we get a special patterned souvenir box that all of our supplies come in, but this year we received a 2nd stamp set!!  This one coordinates with the New Horizons Suite Collection available in the January-June 2022 Mini catalog.  Love it when something like this happens...more bang for my buck!

PPXHop-March2022 Beyond The Horizons Birthday Flat-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05754

This months kit came with amazing envelopes that are patterned on the outside and a different pattern on the inside.  Since the primary neutral color is Basic White, I decided to cut up one of the envelopes and use it as designer series paper.  The Pale Papaya is the larger piece that is matted with Old Olive cardstock; and the inside was the Old Olive skinny later.  Both layers are adhered to an Evening Evergreen card base (4-1/2 x 11, scored at 5-1/2).  Before planting the larger layer, I wrapped some of the beautiful Pale Papaya Grosgrain Ribbon that came with the kit and tied into a bow.

PPXHop-March2022 Beyond The Horizons Birthday Sentiment-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05756

The flower image is set up as a 2-step stamping technique.  The solid piece was stamped once, and the outlined image was inked and stamped twice to show contrast between the two images.  I hand cut the flower, as well as, the Old Olive leaves that are tucked behind.  I popped this floral arrangement with dimensionals and set onto a Stitched So Sweetly Basic White die cut.  The sentiment layer mimics one of the punch out pieces with the kit...Basic White that was punched on each edge using the Banners Pick A Punch.

PPXHop-March2022 Beyond The Horizons Birthday LT-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05751

Finish the card by adding the Stitched So Sweetly focal arrangement to the card front with Dimensionals.  Now looking at the pictures of my card, I realized that I forgot to sprinkle some of the Iridescent Rhinestones that came with the kit on the card.  GEESH!  I'll be fixing that as soon as I finish typing this post.

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!

New At SU Blog Hop — Casing the Annual Catalog with Boughs & Blossoms

Blog Button-Hop Through

Hello Friends!!  Welcome to my blog share as a member of the NEW AT SU! Blog hop! We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world who are excited to share our creative paper crafting ideas with you. Today we are each focusing on inspiration found in the Annual catalog and CASEing it using new stamps, paper and tools that are available in the 2022 January-June Mini Catalog. I'm highlighting the Boughs & Blossoms Bundle along with the Flowering Fields 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper.

Timeless Tropical-CASE Catalog

It didn't take me long to decide to CASE (Copy and Share Everything) this card featuring the Timeless Tropical Bundle on page 21 in the Annual catalog.

NewAtSUHop-CASECatalog- Boughs Blossoms-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05310

My inspiration to feature the Boughs & Blossoms Bundle was based on the two individual flowers and leaves arrangement.  Super quick and easy to recreate!

NewAtSUHop-CASECatalog- Boughs Blossoms Flat-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05317-1

I love to include a bit of texture and dimension in each of my projects!  So, you could sort of say that I enhanced on the card I CASE'd by adding an additional layer of Poppy Parade cardstock that was embossed using the Stripes & Splatters Embossing Folder.  Since it's a mini folder, I did have to run it through my Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine twice.  The flowers were inked with Petal Pink and hand cut with my Paper Snips.  Before adding them to the card front with dimensionals, I threw in a large bow made with the Basic Black Backer's Twine.  This was to compliment the sentiment that was heat embossed with Black Embossing Powder onto a Pool Party strip.  My color palette were selected colors that coordinate with the Flowering Fields 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper pack.  So pretty!

PPX Crew Blog Hop — January Alternate Paper Pumpkin Kisses & Hugs Shaker Heart Card

0122_PP_THUMBNAIL 0122_PP_TOOLKIT_STAMPARTWORK

This month's blog hop features the love-filled Kisses & Hugs (January 2022) kit.  Not very often do I think to use up any of the leftover negative pieces from punched images, they usually get tossed in the recycle bin, but this time the scraps were speaking quite clearly to me.  After all of the bi-fold heart cards were made, there were still goodies left behind to create a fun shaker card!

PPXHop-Jan2022 Kisses Hugs Shaker Heart Card LT-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05246

The background is the largest Scalloped Contour Die cut from Blushing Bride with a layer of Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog.  I threaded the Real Red Faux Linen Ribbon through the loops, tied into a bow and added to the Crumb Cake cardbase with Liquid Glue.

PPXHop-Jan2022 Kisses Hugs Shaker Heart Card Flat Angle-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05250

There was no way I was tossing the negative left behind from the Blushing Bride heart frame!  I adhered a piece of Vellum to the back of the leftover heart and hand cut it out with Paper Snips.  This way I only had to cut the heart once versus twice.  I arranged the two stamp images — X and O — on a clear block to ink with Versa Mark and heat emboss with Gold.  To create the shaker component, I traced the Vellum framed heart onto Basic White cardstock and hand cut with Snips.  The From My Heart Faceted Gems are a perfect color match to the rest of the card — right down to the splash of Gold — and make a good shake-shake-shake noise that will be fun for the recipient to enjoy. 

PPXHop-Jan2022 Kisses Hugs Shaker Heart Card RT-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05243

Finish the card with the word sentiments inked with Real Red onto a strip of Basic White, snipped to size and added to the card front with Stampin' dimensionals.
