Stamp It Blog Hop — Gather Together for The Season

Creative Inking Blog Hop — Gathering Together for Octoberfest

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  It's October 20th; and that means another series of our 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 to see all the wonderful creations.


The temps have really been on a roller-coaster in my area...low 80's one week, then close to freezing temps the next.  As the leaves change color and blow around the yard, I'm realizing that Fall is here and winter is not far behind.  We never have a very long time to enjoy my favorite season....Fall.


So, I'm playing with my Gather Together Suite of products and really loving all of it.  The Gather Together stamp set, coordinating Gathered Leaves Dies, and each beautiful sheet included in the Come To Gather Designer Series paper pack.  I've been on a hot streak creating cards that use more than one pattern...simply because they all compliment each other so well.  Aren't the concept artists for Stampin' Up! just sooo smart!  They have very keen eyes, that's for sure!


Fall leaves can include very vibrant colors, so I chose to use the Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Cards & Envelopes pack.  I just LOVE the texture of the card bases.  It is different than our Crumb Cake cardstock...more natural and warm in touch and appearance.  Also, it really shows off the beautiful color of the Pretty Peacock cardstock that mattes the 3 designer paper patterns.


I went very simple with this card and only wanted to use embossed leaves in Cajun Craze, Pear Pizzazz and Copper as the focal point.  The Ribbon comes from the Come To Gather combo pack and oh-so soft to tie bows and knots. YUM!!  This layout could sport any occasion, but the "Wishing you well" sentiment was inked in Pretty Peacock and will be going to a male friend of mine who has been experiencing some health issues for a while.  I hope it brings a smile to his face and warms his heart. :)

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 lots to gain!  But, until you make that leap to join my Stampin' Up! family and fill your starter kit with new Holiday catalog products 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 Octoberfest creations using supplies from the Holiday catalog 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.  :)
