Creative Inking Blog Hop — Spooktacular Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  I'm so excited to have you join me for the August Creative Inking Blog Hop!  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.

I have been sitting on the edge of my chair waiting to start sharing some sneak peeks of my creations using products from our upcoming Holiday catalog.  Well, not really...since I stand and stamp all my creations, it makes it a bit difficult to 'sit on the edge of my seat'.  Haha!!  But, you know what I mean, right?!!

Every time a new Holiday catalog is available to demonstrators to drool over and start ordering from it, I typically migrate to the Halloween stamps, paper and embellishments.  It's kind of funny, but I'm not really a big fan of Halloween (GASP!!), but I sure did make sure that my daughters were fully dressed in super cute halloween costumes that I had sewn for them.  And, to this day, I'll still hand out candy, but...just can't immerse myself into it.

I do enjoy creating cards and treat packages each Halloween, though.  Soaking in all the beautiful pages of the Holiday catalog, it was an immediate heart-throb when I saw the super cute Spooktacular stamp set and coordinating Monster Bash designer series paper. OH. MY. GOSH!!  THEN, there is a coordinating set of dies, too!  **squeal**!!  The Ornate Frames Dies are so cool because I think they will be a versatile tool that will work beyond any spooky setting.  :)

These two little characters are just the cutest thing ever!  Worked perfectly for the setting I was dreaming up.  I love it when a sentiment is distinguishable not only with multiple fonts, but it also renders the use of my Stampin' Write markers to add color that coordinates with the papers and ink.

Now, if you have ever thought about getting more for your money purchasing all of your favorite Stampin' Up! products, I highly recommend that you purchase the Starter Kit and save 20% with each purchase.  There really isn't anything to lose...only gain!  But until you make that leap to join my Stampin' Up! family and fill your starter kit with new Holiday catalog products (yep! even before it goes live on September 4th) you'll find the ingredients listed below, and I've set it up super easy for you to click on any of the images and add to your shopping cart in my online store.  I would be so very grateful to you and your support for shopping with me.  Check out my Dreamers Loyalty Reward Program...I love what I do and very much appreciation YOU.  So, I pay it back and reward my loyal customers with a FREE shopping spree. You fill my cup!



 

So with one click you can be on your way to soak in some more inspiration showcasing more Holiday catalog sneak peeks from the rest of the group.  Your next stop on the hop will be with our very creative, Dena Rekow.  I know her creation will be fabulous...she'll have a gorgeous creation (or two) to share with everyone. Click on the 'Next' button and you'll be at your next stop.  Have fun filling your inspiration bucket...don't forget to come back real soon.  :)

OSAT Blog Hop — End of Summer Bloom & Grow

Hello-hello stampers and paper crafters!  Welcome to the One Stamp At a Time (OSAT) Design Team Blog Hop.  My name is Lori Mueller (stampindreams.com) and I'm super excited to have you visiting me today.  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.  We've got some amazing projects to share with you!

OSATBlogHop-2018Header

I can't believe that August has arrived, which means that Summer is getting closer to ending...county fairs have started and families are shuffling around to get school shopping done.  This all fits with our theme this month...End of Summer.

I haven't been very good about using any of the background stamps that I've got among my collection, so I thought I would crack open a case and show it off as my background 'designer paper'.  This Crackle Paint Background stamp was inked with Old Olive and stamped onto a piece of Old Olive cardstock.  They call this stamping technique 'tone-on-tone' stamping.  Granted it hasn't reached the triple-digits in temps where I live, but the crackle easily resembles a drought season where the grounds are thirsty.  To add a little softness to the card, I trimmed off the two edges using the Be Mine Stitched scallop die.

OSATHop-BloomGrowThanks-Left-Lori-DSC01417

The Bloom & Grow stamp set is a another new stamp set that I've pulled out to use and failed.  Not this time! HA!  The floral image was inked with Sahara Sand, stamped onto Whisper White cardstock and die cut using the coordinating die found with the Budding Blooms dies set.  I love the images in this set because they render all different kinds of coloring mediums.  I chose to use my Aqua Painter to add ink color, but you could easily use Watercolor Pencils, Stampin' Blends, or Blender Pens. The photo doesn't reflect the little bit of sparkle of Wink of Stella added the center flower. In real life, it is really pretty.

 


Bloom & Grow Candy Bulb

These plastic light bulbs are super cute and fun to fill with all sorts of candies.  Shake some jelly beans and you have quite the rattle.  The tag was created using one of the heart dies from the Be Mine Stitched dies.  Stamped the floral image using Sahara Sand ink and topped with the sentiment that is trimmed out using the negative from the Old Olive card panel.  Before stamping the Old Olive inked sentiment, I took my Aqua Painter and 'washed' a light layer of Sahara Sand ink across the Whisper White strip.  The key to making the ink lighter is to squeeze water from the Aqua Painter to the ink pool in the ink pad lid.  My theory is knowing that I can always add ink, but I can't take it away. :)
