Stamp It Blog Hop — Timeless Tulips for Mother's Day

Hello stampers and crafty friends! I'm so happy you are here.  Welcome to our April Stamp It Blog Hop!  You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from one of the other Stamp It members blog...either way, make sure to click the blog next in line to move along the hop and not miss a beat.

Stamp-it-mothers-day

In just a couple short weeks, we will be celebrating Mother's Day, which is our creative theme this month!  Tulips are going to be the flower of celebration this year because of it's multitude of colors available.  One day, I hope to travel to the Netherlands during the prime season of the Tulip fields.  I've seen lots and lots of beautiful pictures...so dreamy!

StampItHop-MothersDayTulips-Lori-DSC01385
The Last-Chance Products list was released earlier this week, which includes the 2018-2020 In Colors:  Blueberry Bushel, Call Me Clover, Grapefruit Grove, Lovely Lipstick and Pineapple Punch.  I wanted to create a 'field of tulips in Amersterdam', but on a much smaller scale, of course.  One of my personal crafting struggles is to create simply, using only stamps, paper and ink.  I think I achieved it — sort of — I did use a couple of punches.  The struggle is real!  The Starburst Punch also landed on the Last-Chance List...I'm going to miss this one.  Another goal is to show off all of the retiring In Colors on one card with the help  of ink, cardstock and ribbon.  WOOT!

Would you like to create this super cute Timeless Tulip Mother's Day card?  I have posted the entire supply list below and made it easy for you to click on any of the images to add to your shopping cart from 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 appreciate YOU.  So, I pay it back and reward my loyal customers with a FREE shopping spree. You fill my cup!

For more Mother's Day themed creations that I'm sure will be favorites for you to try, make sure you hop on over to the next Stamp It Group members blogs to see what amazing creations they have to share.  Thank you so much for stopping by....stop back again real soon.

Creative Inking Blog Hop — Sending Handmade Love with Ornate Garden Flowers

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  Today is blog hop day, April 20th, which means our amazing Creative Inking designers have created an inspiring group of projects themed as "Sending Handmade Love".  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 beautiful projects.

CreativeInking-HeaderImage

With the unprecedented situation occurring all around the world, we sure could use a little love when we open that mailbox door.  The Ornate Garden Suite of products has definitely proven to be a crowd pleaser and has delivered many smiles and warm hearts since it's early release this month.
 
CreativeInkingHop-SendingLoveOrnate-Lori-DSC01353

This particular patterned paper from the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series paper has a bit of pink that resembles one of our 2018-2020 In Colors — Lovely Lipstick.  I'm sad that it will soon be leaving us (set to retire June 2nd), so I wanted to highlight it with one of the Ornate Layers Dies.

CreativeInkingHop-SendingLoveOrnateHeart-Lori-DSC01362

Sadly, I have a couple of dear friends (also members of my Lori's Dream Team) who have recently lost loved ones...not due to the current health issue, but the situation makes it really tough to mourn with family and friends.  The sentiment comes from the Ornate Thanks stamp set.  It is a perfect sentiment that can stand by itself and fall into several occasions: Thank You, Sympathy, Appreciation, etc.  I decided to snip this long stream of words apart and have it compliment the daisy image from the Ornate Style stamp set that was stamped onto a heart die cut from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits.

CreativeInkingHop-SendingLoveOrnateLT-Lori-DSC01355

Everything rests upon a Vellum layer embossed with the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  I just love how elegant this came out!  You can see all of the new Ornate Garden Suite of products HERE.

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 "Happy Shopper" Starter Kit and save 20% with each purchase.  There really isn't anything to lose...only lots of product to gain!  But, until you make that leap to join my Stampin' Up! family and fill your starter kit with new January-June Mini 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 "Sending Handmade Love" creations using supplies from any of the current catalogs 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.  :)

Retiring 2018-2020 Stampin' Up! In Colors

As the days grow longer, the sun shines more and Spring brings out the blooming flowers, so does the sequence of events for items to retire from the current catalogs (big Annual and January-June 2020 Mini catalogs).  One of the many items that will be on the retiring list are the oldest In Color families — 2018-2020! 


BlueberryBushel-NameCloud

CallMeClover-NameCloud

GrapefruitGrove-NameCloud

LovelyLipstick-NameCloud

PineapplePunch-NameCloud

IF YOU ARE IN LOVE WITH THEM, GET THEM NOW!  Many of the 2018-2020 coordinating In Color products will be retiring as of June 2, 2020 (same time as the current Annual catalog and the January-June 2020 Mini) and will appear on the Stampin' Up! Retiring Products List on April 22.  I can't express enough how past history plays out the same each year...retiring In Color products have sold out very quickly...especially, the Reinkers for the Classic Ink Pads.  Once they are sold out, it is forever.

Here's a closer look at the Retiring Stampin' Up! 2018-2020 In Color products in my online store.  Click and shop now!

Stamping Around The World — Ornate Garden Special Thank You

AroundTheWorld-CountryBlogHop-Header

Good morning, my crafty friends!  If you've been traveling along the Stamping Around The World Blog Hop; or, if this is your very first stop, I want to thank you so much for stopping to visit me Lori Mueller, Stampin' Dreams. If you like to skip and hop and happen to get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog...you definitely want to make sure you see all of the amazing creations shared by the design team.

SATWHop-OrnateGardenGratefulDaisies-Lori-DSC01333
You are probably thinking I'm infatuated with the new Ornate Garden Suite that has been released prior to the new Annual catalog going live in June, huh?  Okay, I admit it!  Yessss, I'm in love with the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series paper because it speaks to me in volumes for everything vintage.  The colors of Terracotta Tile, Old Olive, and the neutral Soft Suede are a subtle combination of beauty.

SATWHop-OrnateGardenGratefulDaisiesHand-Lori-DSC01350

The Ornate Layers Dies are bundled with the Ornate Style stamp set (for a savings of 10%), but the dies are so elegant that you can use them with any stamp set or dies.  These are a definite requirement on your next order.  The daisy is part of the Ornate Style stamp set and was stamped onto the rectangle stitched die from the Ornate Layers dies.

SATWHop-OrnateGardenGratefulDaisies-CloseFlat-Lori-DSC01343

The die cut for the daisies is much longer than what you see on the card...original die is the same length as the sentiment.  I shortened it by lining up the first cut with the 'teeth' of the die and ran it through my die-cutting machine just to cut off the end.  TIP: do not run the die all the way through the machine...just enough to feel the bump of the cut, then back out to see the new finished edge.

SATWHop-OrnateGardenGratefulDaisiesRT-Lori-DSC01337

This suite has a bundle of two ribbon spools...one in Old Olive and the other in Terracotta Tile...a nice soft, satin texture that is easy to work with.  I chose the large, bold sentiment from Ornate Thanks stamp set, but toned it down by clear heat embossing the Terracotta Tile ink color on Vellum cardstock that was die cut with the same rectangle stitched die used for each daisy image.

OrnateGardenTriangleBox-ThumbnailMarked-Lori-DSC01249

Here's a sneak peek of my project included in the April Stamping Around The World Tutorial Bundle.  It was my inspiration when designing my card.  I love all of the floral patterns included with this designer paper; and the big bold sentiments speak volumes...I'm SO grateful!


Would you like to create this lovely card for someone you are grateful to?   I've listed all of the supplies I used at the bottom of this post; and, it's all set 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.  For more beautiful inspiration, you'll want to make sure you hop on over to the next Stamping Around The World members' blogs to see all of the amazing creations they have to share.  Thank you so much for stopping by....stop back again real soon.

Happy Easter with Mini Curvy Keepsakes Baskets

Allelujah!  He Is Risen!  Happy, happy Easter greetings to you!

FableFriendsEasterBaskets-All-Lori-DSC01316

I was inspired by a couple of pics I found floating in the crafting world to make these adorable little baskets using the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies.  I think the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder really enhances on the 'basket' part of the whole creation.

EasterBaskets-MiniCurvyKeepsakesDies-Lori-DSC01332

I was super sad when the original Curvy Keepsakes Box die had retired, but over the moon excited when the NEW Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box dies appeared in the January-June 2020 MINI catalog!  This die is sooo much fun!

OSAT Blog Hop — Celebrate Ornate Style

Good morning stampers and paper crafters!  Welcome to the April One Stamp At a Time (OSAT) Design Team Blog Hop.  My name is Lori Mueller (stampindreams.com) and I'm excited you've stopped by.  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 project(s), 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

This month's theme is "Celebrate" any milestone, whether it be anniversary, birthday, retirement, etc.  Ever since the early released Ornate Garden Suite of products came out (April 1st), I've been stamping up a storm using the Ornate Thanks stamp set.  Well, today, I decided it was time to give some love to the other bundle of products in this suite called Ornate Style.  Oh, boy!  The large floral bouquet is perfect for this Congratulations (on your retirement) card I created for one of my husband's customers.

OSATHop-OrnateStyleCongratsFlat-Lori-DSC01314

I started out with a Gorgeous Grape card base because it looks so darned elegant with the lovely Gold Foil/Old Olive pattern found in the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer paper pack.  The scalloped edging was done with one of the Ornate Layers Dies–LOVE!

OSATHop-OrnateStyleCongratsClose-Lori-DSC01313

With Spring in the air, I thought it would be fun to do a little bit of a technique that I haven't done in a while — Emboss Resist Watercoloring.  I inked up the large floral bouquet with VersaMark and stamped onto the Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper, pour Clear Embossing Powder over inked area and set with the Heat ToolTIP:  Use the lower setting to avoid overheating the embossing powder.  The watercolor paper will quickly soak in the embossing powder and not leave the intended raised texture. Once cooled, use the Stampin' Spritzer to shed a heavy mist of water over the embossed area leaving little puddles within the image areas.  To add color, pick up ink from your ink pad lid with the Aqua Painter and lightly touch the pools of water you wish to add color.  When you touch the water with ink, you'll see it quickly spread within the boundaries of the heat embossed area.  Make sure to let the whole image dry naturally...do not use the heat tool to process a quick dry.

OSATHop-OrnateStyleCongratsRT-Lori-DSC01308

Add your floral bouquet to a layer of Grapefruit Grove, wrap some Ornate Garden Old Olive ribbon around and tie into a knot.  The sentiment comes from the Peaceful Moments stamp set and was die cut using the stitched rectangle found in the Ornate Layers Dies set.  What a gorgeous, Victorian bouquet — one that renders lots of coloring options, but there's something  to be said about watercoloring.  I hope you'll give it a try.


At this time, you are now ready to hop on over to the next OSAT designers blog.  You won't want to miss traveling on as I know they will have something fun, cute and exciting to share with you.  If you prefer to work your way backwards, you can click your way through the blog list found below.  Either way, be sure to work your way through all of the blogs so you don’t miss a thing!

Mega Ornate Garden with April Online Ordering

Here it is, April with Spring-time temps.  With the current health situation hitting the world, it's hard to decipher if the days are migrating at a turtle's pace, or in some ways continuing the fast pace as always.  The weather is getting nicer, my daffodils are blooming, the grass is growing green and even though I'm spending more hours at home, my list of projects to complete is still staring me in the face.  I know it's a difficult time for everyone, but I know we are all getting along as best we can!

So far our family is staying healthy and safe.  My husband and I haven't spent 24-hour periods together beyond the weekends.  So far, so good!  haha!  Buuut, our daughters are both in the medical field; therefore, are listed as first responders to the needs of patients in hospitals, therapy clinics and long-term facilities.  Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers for safe measures.  I'm a hugger, which is the hardest part of this new way of living for me.  For now, we do 'air hugs' standing 6 feet apart.

I'm sooo thankful to have my happy stamping business!  It's always a great release to help me re-focus my anxious energy—the best (and safest) therapy sessions.  Plus, I get all the joy knowing that I can help others enjoy beautiful colors, projects and a little fun!

Check out a recent card and coordinating gift box I made during my online Facebook Live session yesterday.  It uses the brand new, early released, Ornate Garden Suite.

Ornate Garden Thank You — Color Challenge

OrnateGardenHeader-Image-CM1110290B

Oh my goodness!  Have you seen it?  Stampin' Up! has decided to release a fabulous suite of brand new products—EARLY—called Ornate Garden Suite.  It's a vintage, floral suite with a cheerful spring theme, plus the variety and scope of its beautiful, coordinating products.

The lovely floral patterns in the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper remind me of the Victorian era.  If you love sparkle and elegance, you'll find it with the gold foil accented paper, gems, and shimmery ribbon. I'm certain you’ll love what you can do with this versatile collection. My favorite is the ability to pair any of the sentiments to express my gratitude for others in each of my projects.

ColorChallenge-Week1

To inspire my crafty friends across the miles and team members to stamp and create, I posted a Color Challenge.  It included six different colors from Stampin' Up!'s color families:  Terracotta Tile, Grapefruit Grove, Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight, Coastal Cabana, and Bermuda Bay.  Their project could include 1 color...or all 6 that would include ink, cardstock, designer papers, ribbons and accessories.  Once the project was done, then upload to share with everyone.

Since Terracotta Tile is listed as one of the coordinating colors designed in the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series paper, I wanted to see if I could incorporate 2 other colors from the color challenge — Daffodil Delight and Coastal Cabana.  I just love the Gold Foiled patterns that open themselves up for any color combinations you choose.

I did an online stamp class demonstrating the details of my card during a Facebook Live (Lori Dreams Stampin).  Click and Subscribe to my Youtube Channel—I'm working diligently to upload more of my live online classes  If you are needing any supplies I've used, they are all listed at the end of this post.  I am sooo grateful to you for shopping with me.
