Stamp It Blog Hop — Arrange A Wreath for Easter Photos

I'm so happy you have stopped by.  Welcome to our March 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 all of the great inspiration.

This month's theme is focusing around anything related to Easter.  I decided to work on a home decor piece that's been milling in my head...a functional photo holder featuring the Arrange A Wreath Bundle.

StampItHop-Arrange A Wreath Easter Photo-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04286
Easter is one of my favorite holidays...started the day with church, followed by a fun Easter egg hunt, then filled our bellies with a homemade meal.  A while ago, I had up this wooden photo holder at a huge discount and my dream was to transform it into a mini 'Sampler' of sorts.

StampItHop-Arrange A Wreath Easter Photo Holder Black-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04291 StampItHop-Arrange A Wreath Easter Sampler Back-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04293

To start my Photo Holder Sampler, I cut a piece of Basic Black cardstock the same size as the original holder.  This is used as an added stability factor and to start adding all the components for the transformation to Easter.

StampItHop-Arrange A Wreath Easter Sampler Photo Flat-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04289

To lighten up the background, I layered on a piece of Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper with Liquid Glue to the Basic Black piece.  The Wreath is made up of a Pear Pizzazz wreath die cut and glued to the background.  The eggs are inked with Poppy Parade, Bumble Bee and Highland Heather, die cut and matched up in pairs before arranging them on the wreath.  They are popped up and set in place with Stampin' Dimensionals.  For a little more Spring, I die cut the smallest flower from Mango Melody, set in place with Liquid Glue and topped with Pearl Basic Jewels.

 

StampItHop-Arrange A Wreath Easter Photo Sampler-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04294

The Easter sentiment was inked using Poppy Parade and Pear Pizzazz Stampin' Write Markers and stamped onto Basic White cardstock.  It was die cut with the Layering Circles Dies and layered onto a scalloped Layering Circle.  For a little softness, I added some Whisper White 1/4" Crinkled Ribbon behind the sentiment layer before setting into place with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Lastly, the Sampler piece is attached to the wooden Photo Holder with Velcro, which makes it easy to remove and add the next month holiday/occasion you wish to display.

Would you like to re-create this super cute Photo Sampler Holder?  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.

OSAT Blog Hop — Say Hello to Sweet Strawberry

Good morning stampers and paper crafters!  Welcome to January and our 1st 2021 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!

OSAT2020HeaderOur January theme is "Say Hello to", so let me introduce you to my Sweet Strawberry card.  This set comes from the new January-June 2021 Mini catalog and has a coordinating Strawberry Builder Punch.  I'm excited to share with you how I how put this beauty together.

OSATHop-Sweet Strawberry Front-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC03948
The new Berry Delightful Designer Series paper pack is filled with a variety of hand painted berries and vines images that were transformed into the lovely designer crafting paper.  It showcases a large variety of our color palette—displaying soft and bold tones.  The best part is that you can get this paper pack for free (along with a complimentary Berry Blessings stamp set) with a $100 order during Sale-A-Bration.

OSATHop-Sweet Strawberry Flat-Stampin Dreams Lori MuellerDSC03954
I chose to pull out the Garden Green, Daffodil Delight and Real Red with a Sahara Sand card base.  The strawberry images and leaves are a 2-step process...one image is the bolder outline of the fruit and leaf.  The 2nd image is the 'filler' color of the fruit.  I used the Garden Green cardstock as the filler for the leaf with the outline image stamped with Shaded Spruce ink.

OSATHop-Sweet Strawberry Close-Stampin Dreams Lori MuellerDSC03959

To help tone down the busy-ness of the strawberry patterned paper, I lined up 3 strips of Garden Green cardstock to reflect the side of a wagon or a bushel basket.  The stamped strawberries are popped up with dimensionals on Daffodil Delight cardstock that was punched with the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch.  For some texture, I ran them through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine with the Tasteful Textiles Embossing Folder.

OSATHop-Sweet Strawberry Left-Stampin Dreams Lori MuellerDSC03951

The lovely sentiment was inked with Garden Green and accented with a 1/8" strip of Real Red cardstock before set into place with Dimensionals.  For a bit of bling, the strawberries were adorned with the smallest Gold Glitter Enamel Dots in the package.  I have to tell you, while creating this card, I got hungry for strawberries!  YUM!


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!

Stamp It Blog Hop — So Sentimental Happy New Year

Hello stampers and crafty friends! I'm so happy you have stopped by.  Welcome to our December 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 all of the great inspiration.

December2017-TeamStampItHeader

WAHOOOO!  This month's hop theme is all about the New Year!  I'm certain we can all agree on one thing...2020 is a year that NO ONE will ever forget.  It will stand out in the history books for years (and centuries) to come.

StampItHop-SoSentimentalNewYear2021-Lori-DSC03723

So, to celebrate the new year 2021 coming in, I've created a fun shaker card that starts with a Balmy Blue cardbase.  When I was looking through the catalogs for a sentiment or image to work with to create a new year card, I immediately said "That's it!" when I came across the So Sentimental stamp set.  To bring in the New Year does "call for confetti"...lots of it, too!

StampItHop-SoSentimentalNewYear2021Close-Lori-DSC03731

The shaker frame is created with 2 of the larger scalloped rectangle dies from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies set.  Since these dies can nest inside each other, you can line them up on your paper and run through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine with one pass.  WOOT! 

StampItHop-SoSentimentalNewYear2021-RTFlat-Lori-DSC03733

The background patterned papers are part of the Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper pack.  I love that one side are professional photographs converted to paper and the other side is made up of Silver/White foil patterns.  LOVE it!  The foil side ties in quite nicely with the Gold/Silver/White confetti from the Sequins for Everything pack.  Lots of glam and shine on this card.  To tie it all together, the sentiment was inked with Night of Navy Classic ink onto a strip of Balmy Blue.

Would you like to create this fantastic New Year shaker 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.

Poinsettia Petals Acetate Gift Box

Hello my stamping friends!

Only 12 days to Christmas Eve!  How are you coming along with your shopping and handmade gift-giving projects?  I've been having some fun playing with the wonderful Poinsettia Place Suite of products (August-December 2020 Mini catalog) to create several different kinds of treat & gift packaging.  The Poinsettia Petals stamp set and coordinating Poinsettia Dies is a fabulous bundle.

Poinsettia Petals 3x3 Gift Box-2- Lori Stampin Dreams-DSC03673
Another product I hadn't sampled my creative ideas with, yet, are the 3-1/8" x 3-1/2" Acetate Boxes.  These are perfect for filling and giving to your office staff, neighbors, dear friends, and stocking stuffers.

Poinsettia Petals 3x3 Acetate Gift Box Inside - Lori Stampin Dreams-DSC03678

The Poinsettia Place Designer Series paper is absolutely stunning.  I created a belly band for the box measuring 3" x 8-1/2".  It's fun to see one pattern on the outside of the box, but when you open it to remove the contents, you get a taste of the another pretty pattern.

Poinsettia Petals 3x3 Acetate Gift Box 2nd - Lori Stampin Dreams-DSC03674

This particular Poinsettia was die cut from one of the designer papers.  Yeppers!  There is a die from the Poinsettia dies that aligns with one of the pattern papers.  I love it when that happens!  All of the other stamped images—leaves and holly berries—also have coordinating dies.  That Read Red 3/8" Sheer Ribbon is lovely to work with and is the right embellishment to compliment the Holly Berries.  The sentiment was inked with Versa Mark and heat set with White Embossing Powder.

Poinsettia Petals 3x3 Acetate Gift Boxes Label - Lori Stampin Dreams -DSC03676

These Acetate Boxes are the perfect size to house a 3" x 3" sticky note pad and a large York Peppermint Patty.  You could stuff a set of knit gloves, several Ghirardelli Chocolates, Kind Bars, a set of stamped 3" x 3" notecards with envelopes, or any other trinkets you have in mind.

 

Want to know how this fabulous Poinsettia Acetate Gift & Card Box came together?  Here's my Facebook Live demonstration I did sharing tips and tricks on how it all went together.

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

I'm not a huge Halloween enthusiast when it comes to decorating the yard or interior of my home, but I do love to create fun little treat packages for the young students I mentor each week.  It warms my heart to see their eyes brighten up after a day they feel has gotten the best of them.

CreativeInking-Have A Hoot Treat Box-Lori-DSC03018
 
When you get a new catalog, do you come across a stamp set or bundle that you JUST have to have because you can already envision all the different cards and projects you're going to make?  Well, this super stinkin' cute Have A Hoot stamp set was one of them!
 
CreativeInking-Have A Hoot Toothbrush Treat Box-LTClose-Lori-DSC03026
 
I had purchased a bundle of toothbrushes from the Dollar Tree that have been waiting for me to tuck them into a Little Treat Box I die cut from Basic Black cardstock.  I added a belly band that color coordinates with the pumpkin...it comes from the Plaid Tidings paper pack, and is on sale through the month of October.  WOOT!!  The Whisper White tag is one of the window die cuts from the Peek-A-Hoot-Die set.  Any of the pumpkin and owl images would work to decorate the tag, but I couldn't resist this one with the owl peeking behind because, well, we all know that kids don't always like to brush their teeth, right?!!  haha! I colored the image using a variety of Stampin' Blends:  Mango Melody Dark, So Saffron Light, Pumpkin Pie Light & Dark, Crumb Cake Light and Soft Suede Dark.  The 'Boo' sentiment is heat embossed with White embossing powder onto a scrap of Basic Black and hand cut to fit.  Everything is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals; and garnished with the yellow stars from the All The Trimmings Embellishments pack.
 
 
CreativeInking-Have A Hoot Treat Box Candy-Lori-DSC03029

This sounds a little contrary, but I tucked in a piece of candy with the toothbrush.  I had to chuckle because I thought the eyes on the little mummy resembled the eyes on the pumpkin.  Too cute!

If you enjoyed this project, I'd love to have you join me each Sunday afternoon at 2:30P (CST) for my Sunday Stampin' Dreams facebook Live demonstrations.  To make sure you receive notifications when I post announcements, events, and creations using all my favorite Stampin' Up! products, click the "Like" and "Follow"buttons on my business page Lori Dreams Stampin'.

Creative Inking Blog Hop — Falling In Love With Fall

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  Today our amazing Creative Inking designers have created an inspiring group of projects themed as "Fall In Love With Fall".  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

Recently, I asked a question on my Stampin' Dreams with Lori customer page if there was one thing you could give up, which one would it be?  Resoundingly, the answer was COFFEE!  Yikes!  Some people had never tried it and some tried drinking coffee and didn't like it; therefore, won't be touching the 'stuff' again.  LOL!

CreativeInkingHop-PressOnCoffeeTinFront-Lori-DSC02759
 
With that being said, I decided my project covering our theme would include COFFEE!  Teehehe!  I know, I'm such a rebel. LOL!  There's a new stamp set called Press On, that is perfect for the next point I want to make.  This stamp set includes images of coffee cups and coffee beans, buuuut, you can also use the coffee cups for hot tea, too. :)  I also have been aching to use my new Rectangle Tins that will hold a variety of chocolates, note cards, small gifts of jewelry, candies, etc.
 
CreativeInkingHop-PressOnCoffeeTinLT-Lori-DSC02763
 
Instead of creating a belly band, I went with decorating the top of the tin.  The closure is very secure, so I was safe knowing the lid will not open on it's own without a little help.  It is Pumpkin Latte season, so I chose to use a Pumpkin Pie cardstock matte to one of the lovely patterns found in the Plaid Tidings 6" x 6" Designer Series paper pack.  The Detailed Trio punch was perfect to match with the rounded corners on the tin.
 
 
CreativeInkingHop-PressOnCoffeeTinRT-Lori-DSC02761

The focal arrangement uses a die from the Wreath Builder Dies set cut from Shaded Spruce cardstock.  It fits perfectly around the 2-3/8" Layering Circle die cut from Vellum.  The coffee/tea/hot chocolate cup image was inked in Soft Suede and stamped onto Very Vanilla.  I inked a second time and stamped the center 'sleeve' onto Soft Suede cardstock, but out and glued in place on the original image.  There are no dies or punches that coordinate with the Press On stamp set, so you'll have to 'fussy cut' (hand cut with Paper Snips) the cut image.

 

CreativeInkingHop-PressOnCoffeeTinSupplies-Lori-DSC02756

Add the cup to the center of the wreath section with Stampin' Dimensionals.  The sentiment was stamped onto a Pumpkin Pie strip using Soft Suede ink, glued to the center of the 'sleeve', and garnished with a Linen Thread bow.  Adhere the whole panel to the top of the tin using Stampin' Seal+ adhesive.  Fill the tin with your gift of choice.  I found these wonderful Krispy Kreme Cappuccino Coffee Thins — 4 of them fit beautifully inside.  YUM!

Want to know how this card came together?  Here's my Facebook Live demonstration I did today sharing tips and tricks on how it all went together.

Stamp It Blog Hop — Happy Fall Y'all Candy Topper

Hello stampers and crafty friends! I'm so happy you are here.  Welcome to our August 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.

August2016-TeamStampIt-Header

This month's hop theme is one of my favorites—Happy Fall!  But, Fall can capture so many different aspects of the season...leaves, pumpkins, harvested crops, and cool, crisp mornings.

StampItHop-EverythingEssential-FallTopperFront-Lori-DSC02681
One of my favorite Fall projects is to create tag toppers for yummy chocolates and snacks.  I mean, really, look at that CUTE pumpkin smiling right back at you adorning that tag topper!  I chose to incorporate two new stamp sets found in the August-December 2020 Mini catalogEverything Essential and Banner Year.  Both sets have a corresponding punch bundled with them, but I chose to use them just for the images.  They compliment each other well using smaller sentiments with single images.

StampItHop-EverythingEssential-FallTopperRT-Lori-DSC02685

Using the candy wrapper as my color palette, I saw coordinating Stampin' Up! colors — Granny Apple Green, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze and Whisper White.  Isn't that funny how we relate all things in the retail world to the Stampin' Up! color families?  LOVE it!  The Granny Apple Green and Plaid Tidings designer paper tag topper was created using a couple of layers of dies from the Celebration Labels Dies set.  The pumpkin image was inked with Cajun Craze, stamped onto Pumpkin Pie and die cut using the Layering Circles Dies.  To accent the shiny candy wrapper, the image is matted with a scalloped Brushed Cardstock layer with 'messy' nest of Gold Linen Thread from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo pack.

StampItHop-EverythingEssential-FallTopperLT-Lori-DSC02684

The sentiment is one of my favorites...Happy fall, y'all!  Although, I really don't talk that way in real life...only when I'm adding a pun to a conversation or spicing up a greeting with a group of friends.  :)

StampItHop-EverythingEssential-FallTopper-Lori-DSC02679

The fun thing about this style of treat packaging is that your recipient will see the beautiful tag BEFORE they divulge into the chocolate candies, right?!!  Haha!

Would you like to create this adorable Tag Topper?  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.

Creative Inking Blog Hop — NEW Holiday Mini Catalog Highlights

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  Today our amazing Creative Inking designers have created an inspiring group of projects themed as "Mini Catalog Highlights".  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.

This summer has flown and it's already time to start thinking about Halloween crafting.  So, I'm going to highlight a few new products that will help spook up your creativity.

CreativeInkingHop-EverythingEssentialEyeballBoxSupplies-Lori-DSC02648
 
The Everything Essential stamp set includes images that will cover a number of upcoming holidays...Halloween, Christmas, Fall, and Valentines Day.  It has been paired with an exciting new punch called the Essential Tag Punch.  This punch is so versatile...create tags, as I did with my little Treat Box.  You can also use it to layer a sentiment or use as a background accent.
 
CreativeInkingHop-EverythingEssentialEyeballBox-VeinsRibbon-Lori-DSC02644
 
Of course, every new catalog includes new patterned papers to help decorate one of our Clear Tiny Treat Boxes — Magic In This Night Designer Series Paper.  I wrapped the box with a strip measuring 1-3/4" x 8-1/2".  I'm in love with the new 1-1/2" Metallic Mesh Ribbon because the first thing I thought of when I opened it up was the appearance of eyeball veins...see how it compares to the chocolate wrapped eyeball?  Too cool!  One would think this mesh is a little stiff, but totally not the case.  I wrapped it around the treat box opposite of the designer paper and gathered at the top using 3/16" Braided Linen Trim.

To add to the 'spook' factor, I clear embossed the image with Jet Black Stazon ink and punched out using the new Essential Tag Punch.  I punched another one from the new Black Glitter Paper to act as an accent to the haunted house image.  The sentiment was clear embossed onto a scrap of Pumpkin Pie cardstock, hand cut and added to the tag with Stampin' Dimensionals.

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 Annual catalog products.  If you wish to start creating my project, you'll find the ingredients listed below.  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.

Stampin' Up! Playful Alphabet — America Banner

Happy 4th of July stampers and papercrafters!  I've been dreaming of this project idea for over a week now and couldn't let today go by without finishing and displaying in our home.

PlayfulAlphabet-AmericaBanner-Lori-DSC02363

The letters were die cut with Foam Adhesive Sheets and the Playful Alphabet Dies with a mix of Real Red, Whisper White and Misty Moonlight.  Because the Foam Adhesive sheets are double-sided sticky, they are planted Stitched Stars die cuts and then centered onto little medallions created with 1/2" cardstock strips and the Simply Scored Tool.  Each medallion was adhered to a piece of Basic Black that was punched with the Story Label punch.

PlayfulAlphabet-AmericaBanner1-Lori-DSC02356 PlayfulAlphabet-AmericaBanner2-Lori-DSC02357

I punched holes in the top of each Story Label punch and adorned each panel with some Misty Moonlight and Whisper White Crinkled Ribbons that were tied off with a Linen Thread bow.  This allowed me to thread some of the Real Red/Stitched White Trim from the Playful Pets Trim pack through the back and create my banner.

Happy Birthday, Amercia!!  I want to wish you all a safe and wonderful holiday (long) weekend!

Stamp It Blog Hop — Summer Patriotic Themed Tags

Hello stampers and crafty friends! I'm so happy you are here.  Welcome to our Stamp It Blog Hop in June!  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-summer-loving-blog-hop

This month's hop share is all about Summer and/or a Patriotic theme.  Considering the 4th of July is exactly 2 weeks from today, I thought I'd better get this idea I've been dreaming about for weeks out onto cardstock.  I'm super excited to share it with you!

StampItHop-PlayfulAlphabetUSAFlatDies-Lori-DSC02304
The 2" x 5" tag base is made up of Crumb Cake cardstock with a layer of In Good Taste designer paper patterns.  I love the idea that the pattern is a photo of a 'real' brick wall and made into designer series paper.  The scalloped design at the top was done by the Delightful Tag Topper punch.

StampItHop-PlayfulAlphabetUSATagU-Lori-DSC02317

There's a brand new product in the Annual catalog that is super fun — Foam Adhesive Sheets!  I used the Playful Alphabet Dies to cut out the individual letters from Real Red, Misty Moonlight and Whisper White cardstock, then die cut each from the Foam Adhesive Sheets.  Peel off the front and stick the corresponding letter to it.  It creates the coolest 3D embellishment.

StampItHop-PlayfulAlphabetUSATagS-Lori-DSC02316

I used the Simply Scored Tool to score an 11" x 1/2" strip of cardstock (Real Red, Misty Moonlight and Whisper White) every 1/4".  Then fan-fold at the score marks to create an accordion piece.  Adhere the ends together using Stampin' Seal+, then center them onto the tag spacing evenly vertically.

StampItHop-PlayfulAlphabetUSATagA-Lori-DSC02315

Peel off the back layer of each foam letter and adhere to a Stitch Stars Die; then adhere to the accordion pin-wheel.  Add a piece of each Misty Moonlight 1/4" Ribbon and Whisper White 1/4" Crinkled Seam Binding to the tag top and finish off with Linen Thread tied into a bow.

Would you like to create this super cute Patriotic Tag?  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 Summer or Patriotic 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.
