Creative Inking Blog Hop — Gratefulness to Gather Together

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  It's November and the weather couldn't be more fall-ish and beautiful.  So, welcome to another episode 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.


Everyday should be a day of gratefulness, but November is the month that recognizes it the most.  I love the Gather Together bundle found in the Holiday catalog, and before the snow starts flying later this week, I wanted to get one more creation made to compliment the nice weather we've been having.


This card is loaded with all of Gather Together Suite of products...right down to using each and every coordinating color connected to the Come To Gather Designer Series paper pack.  When I started laying out the different pieces — leaves, squares, ribbon, sentiment layer, etc., I systematically lined up everything in a straight line according to a grid.  Then, I got to thinking...leaves don't fall to the ground in a straight line!  So, the reason for the kitty-whompus arrangement.  LOVE it!


The larger leaves were die cut from a piece of cardstock that was heavily spritzed with Rubbing Alcohol to help differentiate the embossed, the leaves would dry with a little curl and bend.  The smaller leaf die was sponged with Early Espresso ink, then die cut from the cardstock.  The ink on the die transferred to the cardstock, adding a bit of color to the inlaid embossed sections.  Pretty cool, huh?!!

Since the panel of leaves made the card a bit busy, it was only fair to add a bit of Ribbon and a small Cajun Craze bow to the wooden Tags & Feathers Element.  All nested on the woodgrain pattern from the Come To Gather Designer Series paper.  I can never get enough of woodgrain designer paper, can you?

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 Gratefulness 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.  :)
