Creative Inking Blog Hop — Tis The Season for Wrapped In Plaid Home Decor

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  Welcome-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.


Even though Christmas is next week, there is still plenty of time to craft up a special gift piece for that special loved one.  OR, you can keep it for yourself...whichever, your little heart desires. Teehehe The Wrapped In Plaid Designer Series paper speaks an elegant 'country chic' to me, so I thought I'd tie it together with the much loved Perfectly Plaid bundle found in the Holiday catalog (page 13-14) to re-purpose a wooden frame that I found in the Clearance Rack at a local store.  The inside platform measures 8-1/2" wide by 6-3/4" tall (measurements exclude the wooden frame).


This home decor piece would probably be labeled as a 'sampler' simply because it showcases a variety of dies, punches and techniques all on one platform.  I broke it up into 3 different panels, with the middle one designated as the focal image and complimented with 2 side panels.


One of the patterns in the Wrapped In Plaid Designer Series paper pack has a variety of stockings that (in my mind) called for some fussy cutting.  With each stocking, the matted cardstock layer compliments one of the colors in the stocking.  The Gold Foil paper layer gave them a richer flavor for the line-up.  Super cute, right?!!!


Have I told you how much I loooove stitched dies?  YUP!!  The bottom sentiment is originally a one-liner, but it wouldn't fit in the width of this particular panel, so I inked up each word using coordinating ink colors found in the designer paper and created my own sentiment layout.  This technique is called "masking" and is super easy.  Just have to remember to remove the tape before stamping; and clean the image before inking the sentiment with a new color.  Once you have that memorized, you're stamping like a champ!

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 January-June Mini and/or 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 "Tis The Season" 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 always shares 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.  :)
