Stamp It Blog Hop — Country Home Thanksgiving Holiday

Hello everyone and welcome to our October Stamp It Bog Hop.  I'm super excited to share a card focusing on this month's theme — Thanksgiving Holiday.  I can't believe that I'm going to say this, but I'm getting hungry for the traditional Thanksgiving feast...turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing and, let's not forget...pumpkin pie!  YUM!!  Since I know I won't be eating any of those foods soon, let's take a peek at what I have to share with you today!

October2016-TeamStampIt-Header

If you have been traveling along the Stamp It Group Blog Hop, or, if this is your very first stop, I want to thank you so much for stopping to visit me Lori Mueller, Stampin' Dreams. If you like to skip and hop and happen to get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.

When I was preparing another card using this Country Home stamp set, I had stamped a couple of the images so that I could practice coloring with the Stampin' Blends.  With the philosophy of 'waste not, want not', I thought I would use one of them for this card.

StampItHop-CountryHomeThanksgivingFlat-Lori-DSC08199

It's typical that I use Designer Series Paper on my projects, but this time, the colored image gave me direction for a stamped background and color combinations.  Can you believe that this card is the first time that my Buffalo Check Background stamp has seen ink?  GASP!  I inked it with Basic Gray ink and stamped onto a layer of Mango Melody.  Both the background and focal image are matted onto Blackberry Bliss cardstock to help accentuate the artichoke in the floral image.

StampItHop-CountryHomeThanksgivingClose-Lori-DSC08201

One of my ultimate favorite things to do is add more than one color to the sentiment.  Since there is more than one font featured, it just seemed fitting to ink with Blackberry Bliss and Mango Melody.  Love the added character.

To bring in a little bit of country, the Linen Braided Trim is the perfect touch.  I love the softness...and, it ties beautifully into a little bow.

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop — Friends of a Feather Kit

Hello and welcome Stampers and Papercrafters to our fun monthly A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop!!   My name is Lori Mueller and I'm part of a team of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the world that have joined together to share alternative projects using supplies from the October monthly kit named "Friends of a Feather". 

PPHop-HeaderPic

Are you ready for the Fall weather?!!  Yep, me too, but I think mother nature decided to jump from Summer to Winter because we've already acquired 4-6" of snow in our area.  It has since melted, but geee whiz!!

10.18_PP_YOUTUBE

I'm loving all of the lazer cut dies and intricate pieces included in this kit to create 8 cards...4 of them are closer to note cards, the other 4 are larger than the regular A2 sized card.  Variety is good. :)  Buuut,  I couldn't leave well enough alone with the larger sized card base with the pretty scalloped edge.

PPHop-Oct2018-FriendsFeather2Cards-Lori-DSC08190

One way of getting more out of your kit is to cut the large cardbases in half.  That's right!  The original base measured 6-1/4" x 4", so the dainty die cuts were calling for a dainty notecard.  I love the scalloped edge to the base, but I wasn't a fan of the fact that you could see the white of the inside cardbase showing through, so I added a strip of Coastal Cabana and Fresh Fig cardstock to the inside front of the card.

PPHop-Oct2018-FriendsFeatherThinkingOfYou-Lori-DSC08188

PPHop-Oct2018-FriendsFeatherGetWell-Lori-DSC08181

Have you purchased the Subtle Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder, yet?  The card layout was needing a bit of texture to offset all of the plain card front and die cut leaves, and the Subtle embossed pattern was perfect with the Pretty Labels punch.  I really like the color combination included with the kit...Grapefruit Grove, Fresh Fig, Cajun Craze, Coastal Cabana, Night of Navy and Crumb Cake.  Pretty-pretty!

PPHop-Oct2018-FriendsFeather2Notecards-Lori-DSC08180

Since the main cardbase was cut down, the self-adhesive gold sequins really reflect their larger size, which is okay as it compliments the metallic baker's twine bow...super pretty!

 


To get more inspiration for alternative ideas creating with the August Paper Pumpkin kit, make sure you visit the other A Paper Pumpkin Thing Group members' blogs to see what projects they have created to share with you.  I'll be on your heals to soak in the new ideas and inspiration.

Creative Inking Blog Hop — With Gratitude Saying Thanks Creatively

Hello stamper and crafter friends! Welcome to my crafty spot (Stampin' Dreams) on the Creative Inking Blog Hop for the month of October! This months theme is geared around Saying Thanks Creatively and with Gratitude!  I have been on a Halloween-crafting-craze for the last couple of days, and getting to play with new products from the Holiday catalog has been so much fun!  I'm like a little kid in a candy store..oh, wait!  Isn't that like Halloween?!!  haha! l can't wait to share my creation with you!  :)

You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the very talented Colleen Vassos' blog. Please be sure to click the 'Next' button (found below) to move along the Creative Inking blog hop. If you get off track at any time, the full line up below will help you move along from blog to blog.


CreativeInkingHop-CountryHomeThanks-Lori-DSC08171


When I first saw the Country Home stamp set in the Holiday catalog, I knew that it was a 'must have' set because of this milk can image.  When I was a kid, I remember there were a ton of these things stacked in a separate room in my grandma's barn.  Over the years, the Opossum claimed them as their little homes, but this image brought back lots of great memories.

  CreativeInkingHop-CountryHomeThanksFlat-Lori-DSC08167

Because of the size of the image, I thought it worked well to create a Gate-fold card.  The Chicken Wire Element was another 'gotta have it' item, plus, it's another family memory of all the chickens we had raised over the years.  I watched many soft, fuzzy baby chicks grow up to be hens laying eggs and providing food for us.  The images render coloring, so I got some practice time in with my Stampin' Blends...it had been awhile.  GASP! 

 

CreativeInkingHop-CountryHomeThanksOpen-Lori-DSC08170

I love to decorate the inside of my cards by bringing in elements from the front to the inside.  The Mint Macaron trim is a die cut from the Falling For Leaves Thinlits set.  I hope you'll give this fun Country Home Suite of products a whirl.  The Country Lane Designer Series Paper is amazing!

OSAT Blog Hop — Fall Brings Ghouls, Goblins and Gourds

Hello-Hello stampers and paper crafters!  Welcome to my blog and the October One Stamp At a Time (OSAT) Design Team Blog Hop!  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 craftiness, click on the next person in line within the list of blogger's posted at the end.

OSATBlogHop-2018Header

This month's theme is "Ghouls, Goblins and Gourds".  I didn't have anything to fit the bill for Goblins and Gourds, so I stuck with the cute Ghouls found in the Toil & Trouble Designer Series paper.

OSATHop-LabelsToLoveRight-Lori-DSC08098


There is a definite tint of Highland Heather in those little ghosts, so it made for a good matte behind the designer series paper and an accent to help show off the Labels To Love sentiment.

OSATHop-LabelsToLoveFlat-Lori-DSC08100

I'm not one to use one color with any of our neutrals, so I added some of the gorgeous Granny Apple Green Textured Weave Ribbon tied with a knot.  If you love ribbon, you are going to absolutely fall in love with this ribbon...OH. MY. GOSH!!  You need to get some...just sayin'!!  Sooo pretty and soft...to tie a knot or bow couldn't be any easier.

OSATHop-LabelsToLoveLeft-Lori-DSC08097

You all know how much I love dimension, so I inked the sentiment in Jet Black StaZon and stamped a 2nd time onto Pumpkin Pie to pop up on the original stamped image.  There are more dimensionals behind the main sentiment, too.  I hope you enjoyed this little "Ghoul" card...it came together so easy.

 


Takeout Treat Box with Bats

Wouldn't you agree that all those cute Ghouls need to be accompanied by a little Takeout Treat box covered with bats?!!  I stayed with the same color combinations of Granny Apple Green, Highland Heather and Basic Black.  The photo doesn't show it, but the bats were punched from the Black Foil paper using the Spooky Bats punch, both found in the Holiday catalog.  The sentiment came from the September Paper Pumpkin kit embossed with Whisper White Embossing powder.  Sooo cute!!

OSATHop-TakeOutTreatBox-Lori-DSC08103

 


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 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!

Halloween Frights and Delights Homemade Designer Paper

PP-FrightsDelightsNotecardBoo-Lori-DSC07950

I was preparing for a craft fair this last weekend and had made up all of my September Paper Pumpkin Frights and Delights treat bags to hand out to shoppers stopping by my booth.  Now that those are all gone, what do you have left in your Paper Pumpkin box?  The stamp set, ink spot, and other extra pieces from the kit, right?  What do you do with those items — pack up and store them for a rainy day (although, it's been raining in my area for 4 days straight!)?  OR, do you keep playing and making new stuff?

PP-FrightsDelightsNotecard-Lori-DSC07941

Normally, my stamp sets and ink spots get put to the side while I feverishly work on my next projects, but not this time!  I wanted to show myself that there is still lots of life in these amazing images by creating my own "Designer Series Paper"!  That's right!  Have you ever noticed that there isn't any decorative patterned paper to play with?


FrightsDelights-StampSet

In true color, Basic Gray Classic ink will appear much darker than what you see on my card.  To avoid stealing the eye from the sentiment focal point, I inked up the various images, stamped off one time, then stamped onto the Whisper White layer.  I did the same with the Pumpkin Pie Jack-o-Lantern, too.  Now the spider and bat were full ink, but because they are small, it gave some contrast to the "designer paper" I was creating.

 

PP-FrightsDelightsNotecardFlat-Lori-DSC07948
There were, at least, half a dozen of the 'Boo!' stickers leftover from the kit, plus, lots of Black/Silver Baker's Twine to help adorn the focal image.  The Everyday Label punch made a quick background layer for the Pumpkin Pie Stitched Shapes Square.  A nice accent to show off the sticker, too.  Stinkin' cute!!

Even though the kit contained all of the supplies to create 24 adorable Halloween treat bags, I enjoyed using the leftover supplies, and a few of my own, to create my own spooktacular fun!

My extra project this month features the beautiful Falling For Leaves stamp set found in the new 2018 Holiday catalog and the luscious Merry Merlot & Copper 5/8" Ribbon.  YUMMY!!.  Since I can only show you a sneak peek of the project I created in the actual October Tutorial Bundle PDF, I'm sharing a 2nd project I made especially for this blog hop using the same products. It’s different from the project in the Tutorial Bundle as they are exclusive and you won’t see them anywhere else!

I am gearing up for Fall and Christmas craft and vendor fairs and came across this candle in my stash of "hmmmm, what crafty thing can I do to dress this up?" Do you have one (or more) of those kinds of stashes??  haha!  I think I purchased it simply because of its color...coordinates quite well with Crushed Curry Woods, Texture Designer Series Paper, and the brilliant color of the Copper Foil paper.

After piecing the Woods Texture Designer Series Paper strips onto a strip of Sahara Sand, I knew it had to be finished off with the Merry Merlot & Copper Ribbon.  This ribbon is sooo soft and easy to work with, plus, it adds an elegant sheen and compliments the Copper Foil backing of the Tranquil Tide leaf.

The bundle of leaves were die cut using the coordinating Detailed Leaves Thinlits Dies, arranged, adhered into place and then propped with Stampin' Dimensionals and set into place on the Woods Textures Designer Series Paper strip.  This will be a beautiful addition to your Fall table decorations, don't you think?
