SPECIAL: 2-Day Free Shipping on Stampin' Up! Orders

Happy New Years Eve! I hope everyone was able to enjoy their Christmas holiday with family and friends last week. My little family was together for Christmas Eve and then part of the family had to work the evening of Christmas day. They are nice professions, but not a favorite around the holidays. Since then, I have been trying to play catch up and even throw in a fun stamping project here and there.

FreeShip-Dec31-Jan1-LoriTo help bid 2018 a nice farewell and bring in the New Year, I'm celebrating with a Free Shipping special so you can get anything you missed that is on sale (or regular catalog items) and save on the shipping at the same time. Special NOTE:  This is a personal sale from me, so when you shop in my online store, the system won't recognize this special offer. In order to take advantage of my offer, you'll need to email to let me know that your order has been placed at LoriDreamsStampin@yahoo.com.  I'll send you back a refund in the amount of the shipping cost.

 
NOTES:
  • Only orders over $50 qualify for free shipping
  • Orders over $150 receive Stampin' Rewards
  • If your order is over $100 you may want to consider the Demo Starter Kit.  BEST. DEAL. EVER!!

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!!

CreativeInking-HeaderImage

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.


CreativeInkingHop-CelebrateWinter-Lori-DSC09164


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.

  CreativeInkingHop-CelebrateWinterFlat-Lori-DSC09174

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.

CreativeInkingHop-CelebrateWinterRight-Lori-DSC09170

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!...it 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.

Christmas Under the Mistle Toe — December Tutorial Design Team Blog Hop

 

TutorialBundle-BlogHop-HeaderImage

Hello stampers and crafters!!  Welcome to the All Star Tutorial Bundle Blog Hop for December! You are joining during the round of tutorials (August–January). This team brings to you a "super bundle" of 12 tutorials using only Stampin' Up! products.  There are amazing projects in this bundle that range from traditional-style cards, fancy fold, 3D giftables and various techniques!  We each offer this in our own business for free with a minimum order, as well as, a stand alone PDF purchase.

TutorialBundleDesignTeam-Collage

Here are the sneak peeks...it's loaded with fun and excitement and something you don't want to miss out on. 

DecemberSneakPeekBundle-Collage

Each month's tutorial bundle is based on currently available supplies from Stampin’ Up! and lists both metric and imperial measurements. So whether you are a cms or inches person, we’ve got you covered!  Make sure to look for the full details at the bottom of this post.

For this month's extra project, I am so happy to have pulled out my regular Annual catalog to play with holiday products within those pages.  I decided to showcase the Under the Mistle Toe Designer Series paper and the Hearts Come Home stamp set.  Since I can only show you a sneak peek of the project I created in the actual December Tutorial Bundle PDF, I'm sharing a 2nd project I made especially for this blog hop using most of 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!

TutorialHopDec2018-UnderMistleToe-Lori-DSC09135

I grew up living on a farm and surrounded with a tree shelter belt that had evergreen trees growing in the mix.  This pattern of designer series paper reminds me a lot of home with the images of fir branches, pine cones, and a mix of other tree species.

TutorialHopDec2018-UnderMistleToeFlat-Lori-DSC09142

One way of toning down a busy pattern is to keep the layout and sentiment layers pretty simple.  The thin strip of Copper Foil is such a pretty distraction from the busy pattern, which helped to show off the two-colored sentiment (Real Red and Shaded Spruce).  I just had to throw in a couple Sprig punches of Shaded Spruce and Sparkle Glimmer paper for a little contrast...but, not too much.

I hope you enjoyed my extra card project.  The clean and simple layout is sometimes hard for me, but I did happen to whip this up in under an hour!  haha!  I'm working really hard to break that habit of always creating and showing off more of the Avid crafting style.  How did I do?

 


The Tutorial Bundles are based on currently available supplies from Stampin' Up! and include both Imperial (inches) and Metric measurements.  Soooo, no matter where you live in the world, you can purchase the tutorial and will be able to create the projects.
