Creative Inking Blog Hop — Celebrating Winter Birthdays

Good evening my stamper friends! I'm so happy that you're traveling the Creative Inking Blog Hop for the month of December! This months theme is geared around Celebrating Winter!  I don't know about you, but I'm not sure there is really anything exciting about "celebrating winter".  For the last week in Nebraska, we have been a lot more happy celebrating the Spring or Fall-ish type temps during the Winter season.  I sure do love celebrating Winter with 50 degree weather!!


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.


With my latest creative visions, I have been trying to work hard to create "clean and simple" cards.  My usual style is to have lots of layers, intricate focal images, and topped off with glamorous embellishments.


The fun and whimsical snowflake image comes from the Candy Cane Season stamp set found in the Holiday catalog!  It has been a really long time since I've created my own 'designer paper' using stamps and ink, but this image is just too cute not to ink it up with Versamark and randomly stamp a good chunk of the Balmy Blue cardstock layer.


To add some character to a single layer of cardstock, the focal point is a mix of Layering Ovals and Stitched Ovals Framelit dies.  The sentiment comes from the Labels to Love stamp set inked and stamped with Balmy Blue.  You may notice a new Stampin' Up! product in the mix of the focal image...yeppers! is a new embellishment called "Flax Ribbon".  It is super soft and looks like the 5/8" Burlap Ribbon found in the Annual catalog.  LOVE it!! 

All of the ingredients for my card are listed at the bottom of this post.  Click on any of the items and you'll be directed to my online store and can add any of them to your shopping cart.  I sooo appreciate your business and for choosing me as your Stampin' Up! demonstrator.



From the bottom of my heart, many, many "thanks" to you for you stopping by to visit me.  I love the visits and wonderful thoughts you share with your comments.  It is always my passion to inspire you with my papercrafting projects.  I hope I have peaked your excitement to get your dreams stamped out onto paper using some of the products that I have shared with you.  I truly live to inspire!!
