OSAT Blog Hop — Pretty In Pink Flowers for Every Season

Good morning stampers and paper crafters!  The heat of summer in July is here; and so is our 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 July theme is "Pretty in Pink" and the new 2020-2022 In Color, Magenta Madness sure is purrrrdy!  I have to admit that when I first saw the introduction of this color via a Stampin' Up! video, I was like "ewwww", turning up my nose and telling myself 'that pink is too retro for my creative tastes'.  Well, I'm here to tell you that I'm eating my words right about now.  ACK!

OSATHop-PinkPlayfulAlphabet-Lori-DSC02382
The new Flowers for Every Season Designer Series paper has a number of patterns that include Magenta Madness in it.  I love this one with the smaller flower images...made perfect for the die cut from the Hippo & Friends Die set.  The letters from the Playful Alphabet Dies set fit quite nicely in there, too.  To give the "Happy" die cuts some depth, I added a strip of Magenta Madness cardstock to the back using dimensionals.  I had to use Mini Dimensionals that were trimmed to fit for the centers of the "A" and "P".

OSATHop-PinkPlayfulAlphabet-FlatSupplies-Lori-DSC02389
I chose one of the subtle Bumblebee patterns found in the Flowers for Every Season Designer pack to add a light color that would not clash with the floral pattern.  I love how it sits, kitty-wampus, on the card base front so that there's a bit more white showing at skinny angles versus long rectangles.

OSATHop-PinkPlayfulAlphabet-FlatBirthday-Lori-DSC02392

The "Birthday" sentiment comes from the Well Said stamp set and was inked with Magenta Madness, stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and trimmed down with Paper Snips before setting in place with dimensionals.  This stamp set is loaded with sentiments!  I mean, seriously, there are 51 different images in this 2-case bundle.  There's definitely something for every occasion within this set. 

OSATHop-PinkPlayfulAlphabetLT-Lori-DSC02387

To add a little more color to the overall card layout, I added some balloon die cuts (Hippo & Friends Dies) using coordinating colors from the floral pattern — Just Jade, Poppy Parade and Magenta Madness.  They each have a strand of Linen Thread that was gathered with a bow to make it look like a balloon bouquet.  Lastly, adhere some of the clear gems from the Flowers for Every Season Gems pack with Multipurpose Liquid glue.  I just love the fun and whimsical appearance of this card!  Suitable for any age, don't you think?


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!

OSAT Blog Hop — Manly Country Club Golfer

Good morning stampers and paper crafters!  Welcome to the May 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 "Manly May" or anything masculine.  Well, that means I get to play with the Country Club Suite of products.  My husband's favorite pasttime is golfing, and due to the strange weather in Nebraska the last couple of years, the golf courses have only been closed a handful of weeks.  When he's out on the greens, I'm content to stamp and share my creations with you.  YAY!! 

OSATHop-ManlyGolferFront-Lori-DSC01454
The starting point for this card was the Country Club Designer Series Paper.  There's a retired pro golfer who was easily recognized by the argyle pants he wore during each tournament.  This pattern reminded me of him.  I love the color combination of Mint Macaron, Garden Green, Poppy Parade and Crushed Curry.  The subtle Mint Macaron cardbase sets the tone for the Golf Club die to stand as a silhouette resting on a Poppy Parade die cut from the Painted Labels die set.

OSATHop-ManlyGolferFlat-Lori-DSC01462
The Golf Club die set has all the elements that you'd find in a typical golf bag — golf tees, golf balls, clubs, and a bit of cut grass from the course.  At the end of the year, there's enough of the dried out grass to build a birds nest!  Well, maybe not that much, but pretty close!  I took a piece of the Garden Green Country Club Twine and unwound all the fine strands to wrap and tie into a bow.  It reminded me of all the grass stuck to the bottom of golf shoes and the towel used to wash and dry the balls that rolled into a pond or sand bunker.

OSATHop-ManlyGolferRT-Lori-DSC01458

The sentiment came from the Clubhouse stamp set. It was inked with Night of Navy, stamped onto Whisper White cardstock, and die cut with a banner die found in the Golf Club die set.  The Golf cart shield is part of one of the Country Club Designer Series paper patterns — and, there's a die, too!  Gotta love it when dies and designer paper coordinate!  I finished with a splattered texture over the card front using the brush end of my Basic Black Stampin' Write marker and flicking it from the inside of the cap.  Envision the golfer in a sand bunker and that is sand flying after the swing!  Teehehe


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!

Stamping Around The World — Clubhouse Golfers Birthday Gift

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-ClubhouseGolfJar-Lori-DSC01436
When the January-June 2020 Mini catalog came out, I was super excited to see that it FINALLY included a stamp set featuring my husbands FAVorite hobby — golf!  His birthday is next month and it is only fitting for me to create this adorable upcycled jar filled with large gum balls to simulate the many golf balls he totes around in his bag.  Every time he hits a ball with a 'hook' or 'slice' (not always a good thing because it means his ball left the main fairway), he'll find his ball, plus, another!  His collection keeps growing...faster than my stamp collection!  Teehehe

SATWHop-ClubhouseGolfJarStamps-Lori-DSC01440

Not only did Stampin' Up! come up with the Clubhouse stamp set, but an entire suite of products.  Sure, the Country Club Designer Series paper pack includes sheets showcasing golf carts, golf balls, tees, and flag poles, but there are a number of argyle and plaid patterns, too.  Meaning, this paper pack has patterns that can be used year-round.  That's a huge plus for the well-rounded paper crafter!

SATWHop-ClubhouseGolfJarSuite-Lori-DSC01441

Of course, with a suite of products, there are some wonderful tools and accessories to adorn a project.  The coordinating Golf Club Dies include 14 dies — not only do they coordinate with the Clubhouse stamp images, but several of them line up to images found in the Country Club Designer Series paper.  YAY!  The Garden Green golf cart shield you see in the center and plaid banners were all die cut from the same patterned sheet.  The wooden pieces come from the Country Club Elements and really add some great dimension and connectivity to a golf course.  Depending on where you live, most golf courses are landscaped with a wide variety of trees, evergreens, and shrubbery...very woodsy.

ClubhouseGolferBirthday-Thumbnail1Marked-Lori-DSC01371

Here's a sneak peek of my project included in the May Stamping Around The World Tutorial Bundle.  It was my inspiration when designing my card.  Can you see the detail in the Absolutely Argyle 3D Embossing?  If you ask me, this handsome texture is not just for the golf nut.  I'm thinking winter sweaters and sweater vests.  LOVE!


Would you like to create this handsome gift package for your favorite golfing friend?   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.

Stamp It Blog Hop — Birthday Sale-A-Bration with Someone Special

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

Is your stash of Birthday cards filled to the gills or depleted and in desperate need of replenishing?  Mine is parched, so I held a stamp class focusing on what we all seem to run out of the fastest...Birthday cards!  Sooo many friends, family, colleagues and, let's not forget the littles in our lives, have had a birthday in the last couple months.  I have to say, we made some super CUTE cards using the Special Someone stamp set and the brand new coordinating Special Day Dies.

StampItHop-SpecialSomeoneBirthdayRt-Lori-DSC00989

I chose to feature the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series paper pack and focus on the color palette designed for that pack.  The fun color combination of Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, Bermuda Bay, and Mango Melody is fitting for birthday cards of any age.  I chose the striped pattern because of the line structure that compliments the Whisper White panel embossed with the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder.  To make it fun, I tilted the two layers in a non-uniformed fashion going in opposite directions.

StampItHop-SpecialSomeoneBirthdayFlatClose-Lori-DSC00992

The star of the greeting is that stinkin' cute MOUSE!  I've caught lots of those little buggars in my garage and would never think to find myself referring to one as "cute"!  He's a 2-step process.  The 'fur' image is stamped in Early Espresso, then the 'filler' image is inked in Crumb Cake.  For a shaded (lighter) effect, stamp the filler image once on scrap paper then save the 2nd rendition stamping to fill in the body of the mouse.  The Stitched So Sweetly Dies are ahhh-mazing and a must-have tool for future creations.

StampItHop-SpecialSomeoneBirthdayLeft-Lori-DSC00986

The sentiment is inked with Bermuda Bay and popped up with dimensionals...same as the Stitched So Sweetly die garnished with the Metallic Baker's Twine (Sale-A-Bration freebie that is completely sold out).  To add a sprinkling of complimentary color, I added some of those sequins in the Combo pack using teeny-tiny dollops of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Click on the Live video for a full tutorial and an altered version to my original.

Would you like to create this super cute Special Someone Birthday 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.

Creative Inking Blog Hop — Product Coordination for a Special Someone

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  Welcome-welcome to our amazing 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 Bj Peters' 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.

CreativeInking-HeaderImage

I've been having sooo much fun playing with all of the Sale-A-Bration items offered (stamps, dies, papers and accessories.  How 'bout you?!!  They are all super cute and fun!  Especially, the Special Someone stamp set!  Those little critters do not come with an age requirement, so go ahead and include them on Birthday cards of all ages.  What's even more exciting is that Stampin' Up! is offering a set of dies that coordinates with those critters!  So awesome, right?  No need to handcut...simply stamp and die cut!  Perfect timing, because our theme this month is to showcase a new Coordination product that go with the Sale-A-Bration stamps.
 
CreativeInkingHop-SpecialSomeoneSABCoordFront-Lori-DSC00954

My stash of Thank You cards is pretty slim...and, I was struggling to decide which critter to add to my card, so I paired up all three to help proclaim my heartfelt thanks 3-fold.  I love the subtle patterns of designer paper in the Birthday Bonanza paper pack because I did not want it to steal away from the cuteness of my critters. The various sizes of Layering Circles was designed to compliment the size of each critter...all popped up on a strip of Coastal Cabana accented with a couple strands of baker's twine (part of the Metallic Baker's Twine & Sequins Combo pack...now sold out).

CreativeInkingHop-SpecialSomeoneSABCoord-Flat-LoriDSC00961

Each critter from the Special Someone stamp set is set up as a 2-step stamp process...the fur is a darker shade and the filler of the fur is a lighter color that is stamped off before stamping onto the critter.  For instance, the raccoon is first stamped with Basic Gray and the filler of the fur is Smoky Slate that has been stamped off onto scrap paper before stamping onto the raccoon's fur image. The little flowers were stamped with Basic Gray and filled in with Grapefruit Grove, Coastal Cabana and Mango Melody.  Everything was die cut using the Coordination Special Day Dies and popped up using Stampin' Dimensionals.

CreativeInkingHop-SpecialSomeoneSABCoord-Left-Lori-DSC00959


The "thank you" sentiment is part of the Special Someone set inked in Basic Gray for two panels and Coastal Cabana for the middle one.  I love how the sentiments tier down based on the size of the circles.  But, what I love even more is how quickly this card came together...all because of the wonderful coordinating Special Day Dies!  Thank you, Stampin' Up! You can see all of the new 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.

This month's theme is Sixteen Candles (aka...anything birthday related).  I'm desperately needing to get some birthday cards made and sent — my stock has been depleted for a while, so this couldn't be better timing to check a box on my "to-do" list!

OSATHop-ForeverBlossomsBirthdayFront-Lori-DSC00885

The Forever Blossoms stamp set and coordinating Cherry Blossoms Dies has been sitting nearby waiting for me to add some ink.  There are a handful of sentiments included in the set, but none of them hit the 'birthday' theme.  So, I pulled out one of my favorite sentiment sets from the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog, Peaceful Moments.  It covers quite a few different occasions...a must-have stamp set!

OSATHop-ForeverBlossomsBirthday-Flat-Lori-DSC00895

I love the simplicity of the design layout...although, there are a few intricate details that make it appear more complicated.  There is only one layer added to the Whisper White Thick cardstock base...a strip of Parisian Blossoms Designer Series Paper for an added touch of elegance and a piece of Whisper White cardstock embossed with the Subtles 3D Embossing folder.  I did pop up the embossed layer for dimension and trimmed the right edge with two Petal Pink fancy edging die cuts from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits set. The leaves and flowers were inked with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Old Olive (Dark & Light) and Petal Pink (Dark & Light) Stampin' Blends markers.

OSATHop-ForeverBlossomsBirthday-Left-Lori-DSC00890

For a contrast color, I threw in a Cherry Cobbler piece of cardstock embossed with the new Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder topped with a stretch of Petal Pink 1/4" Metallic-Edge Ribbon.  The sentiment inked with Memento Tuxedo Black and stamped onto a Stitched Oval die.  The Champagne Rhinestones give it the final elegant touch.


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 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!

Creative Inking Blog Hop — Celebrating Sale-A-Bration with Sending You Thoughts

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.

CreativeInking-HeaderImage

Well, January has opened up it's arms and blessed us with bitter cold temps, blustery winds, snow and ended with freezing drizzle that has made all of our city streets a treacherous ice skating rink!  YIKES!! 

Winter is the best time of year for a couple of reasons.  One, it forces me to stay inside and craft to my hearts content; and two, it's Sale-A-Bration (Stampin' Up!'s best time of year)!!  So, I'm celebrating Sale-A-Bration by showing off one of the most versatile stamp sets you can earn free — Sending You Thoughts.  It's filled with 9 sentiments that cover a number of occasions.

CreativeInkingHop-PaintedPoppiesEmbossedRt-Lori-DSC00803

I paired the free stamp set with another favorite — Painted Poppies stamp set!  This set is filled with poppies and leaves (no sentiments), so together they can help form birthday, anniversary, get well or congratulations cards. The technique shown is how to use up cardstock strips and use them as a background for the heat embossed Poppies.  The Peaceful Poppies Specialty Designer Series paper (not used on card) was my inspiration for the cardstock color choices.

 

CreativeInkingHop-PaintedPoppiesEmbossedLeft-Lori-DSC00805

The Painted Poppies stamp set is bundled with the Painted Labels Dies, found on page 25 in the January-June 2020 Mini catalog.  These dies can be used with any stamp set available in the store.  They can be used for showcasing sentiments, layering or used as a tag.  LOVE-Love-love them!!

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 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 "Celebrate Sale-A-Bration" creations using supplies from the January-June 2020 Mini 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.  :)

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop — On My Mind

Hello Stampers and Papercrafters! and, welcome to our monthly A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop!!   My name is Lori Mueller and I'm part of a team of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the world that have joined together to share alternative projects using supplies from the July Paper Pumpkin kit.PPHop-HeaderGraphicThis month's kit is inspired by THREE different product suites found in the Annual catalog:  Come Sail Away, Woven Threads and Garden Love.  Based on these wonderful kit projects, I couldn't tell you which one is my favorite.  Although, I will admit the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper is my ultimate favorite pack, right now.  The rustic colors and scratchy, aztech-y (totally made up that word) patterns really speak to me.

07.19_PP_FACEBOOK
Every month, the kits include enough supplies to create the designed projects. And, that is what I primarily focus on using on my alternate projects to share with you, but this month, I was more drawn to using only the stamp set.  I loved the designed card projects in the kit that I did not want to chop up any of the card bases, envelopes, or steal the dies and embellishments to create an alternative.

PPThingHop-OnMyMindBirthday-Lori-DSC00963
I love to create the non-typical sized card.  Yes, I have to be different, but if truth be told, I had a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock that was in my scrap folder measuring 8-1/2" x 4-1/4" — perfect for a square card!

 

07.19_TOOLKIT_STAMPARTWORK

I'm certain the stamp set included in the kit is going to get a lot of attention from me to create a variety of cards.  I mean, look at those lovely sentiments!  Very versatile and has "all occasion" written all over them. :)  A definite keeper, plus, a bonus from the kits — you build a small collection of stamp sets and ink spots that doesn't break the bank and will give you endless hours of creations.

PPThingHop-OnMyMindCardFlat-Lori-DSC00970

The instructions sheet that comes in the kit always lists the coordinating colors that go with the included supplies.  Since the cards were featuring three different product suites, there were a lot of colors to choose from, but I managed to narrow down to Terracotta Tile, Mint Macaron, and Seaside Spray to stamp the medallion.  Someone might ask if I used the Stamparatus to stamp the medallion image so evenly...my answer would be 'not this time'.  Since the stamp sets are photopolymer, I felt pretty comfortable stamping the image with my old eyeballs and a pair of 'cheater' glasses.  LOL!

 


On My Mind Dove Candy Holder

I'm on a mission to use up some Sahara Sand cardstock scraps, so this 1-1/2" x 4-3/4" strip was my inspiration to hold a nice piece of Dove chocolate.  I scored it at 2-1/8 and 2-5/8" and fancied up the top using the Delightful Tag Topper punch.

How do I know if Paper Pumpkin is right for me?

If you can answer "Yes" to any of these questions, then Paper Pumpkin is the perfect solution for you!

  • I want a creative escape but I don’t have a lot of time.
  • I’m not sure I’m ready to commit to papercrafting, but I want to try it.
  • I love to create but I don’t always feel creative.
  • I need some fresh project ideas.
  • How can I craft when I don’t have all the “crafting stuff” I need?

Go ahead....give it a 3-month, 6-month or 12-month test drive and get in on all the FUN!!  If you end up not enjoying it (GASP!!), you can cancel your subscription.  But, I'm sure you will be very happy and excited to see what the next month will bring you.  Trust me!  I've been a subscriber for almost 5 years and I get anxious to receive my little orange box in the mail near the middle of each month.  **squeal**

Creative Inking Blog Hop — Love It Chop It - Designer Series Paper Love

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  I'm so excited to have you join me for the July 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.

CreativeInking-HeaderImage

With each new catalog comes along a variety of brand new beeee-u-tiful designer series paper packs.  Do you find yourself ordering these amazing papers, opening the pack, smelling the fresh smell of printed paper, then setting it aside because you are too afraid to CUT into any of those beautiful patterns?!!  Meeee toooooo!  Well, this month's blog hop is to help entice you to LOVE it — and — CHOP it!

PerennialEssenceDSP-149100G

That's right!  For starter's, when I first saw all of the beautiful floral patterns in the Perennial Essence pack, I thought "No waaaay" can I cut into those beautiful bouquets.  They are way too pretty to cut...they need to be framed all by themselves in a 12 x 12 picture frame and hung on the wall.  Well, you can do that, too, but I'm going to share with you how gorgeous they are made into a set of notecards.

CreativeInkingHop-LoveItChopItCards-Lori-DSC00946

I have been finding myself steering towards the Notecard and Envelope packs that are offered in the Annual catalog for quite a number of projects.  They are perfect for notecards, customer Thank You's, creating a bundle of all occasions and giving as a gift, and the list goes on.

CreativeInkingHop-LoveitChopItNotecardFlat-Lori-DSC00952

The notecards measure 3-1/2" x 5", so it made it easy to cut each pattern of the Perennial Essence designer paper into 3" strips. Then, each strip gave me two 4-1/2" pieces, leaving me with a 3" x 3" square.  I decided to cut this in 1/2 so that I had two 1-1/2" x 3" strips that I would flip to show off the pattern on the back side.  There are so many coordinating colors that go with this paper making it easy to choose a coordinating matte layer of cardstock to go with the larger patterned pieces.  With one sheet of designer paper, you can get 8 notecards!  SCORE!!

 

CreativeInkingHop-LoveItChopItCardSupplies-Lori-DSC00948

I love the new Timeless Label Punch because of it's subtle rounded ends and the ability to coordinate it with one of the Layering Ovals dies.  The sentiment comes from the Welcome To The Team stamp set, but you can use a variety of sentiments from your collection of stamp sets to create a bundle of All Occasions cards...get well, sympathy, thinking of you, happy birthday, etc.  I left the remaining 5 notecards sentiment-less so that when needed, I can stamp an appropriate sentiment that goes with the occasion.  Pretty cool, huh?!!

Now, I hope you will run to your craft space and go CHOP your favorite designer series papers!  It's okay to LOVE them — but it's important that you use them, too — don't let the dusty bunnies take them over.  LOL!  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.

Creative Inking Blog Hop — Favorite New Catalog Product Suite

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  I'm so excited to have you join me for the June 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.

CreativeInking-HeaderImage

This month's hop is all about sharing which of the amazing Suite of products in the beautiful new catalog is our favorite.  YIKES!!  This was SUPER difficult for me...as is any challenge to come up with ONE favorite from a group of products.  It's like asking me to choose which child I gave birth to is my favorite. HA!  Some days I may have had a definite answer for you...but, we won't go there. :)

2019_AC_P036
So, to help make my decision easy (for myself), I decided to go with the Magnolia Lane Suite.  For the most part, it's the Suite of products that I have been playing with the last few days.  Look at all of those amazing creations that are showcased in the catalog (page 36-37)!

CreativeInkingHop-MagnoliaSuiteCard1-Lori-DSC09966

To help get my creative juices flowing, I love to CASE a card pictured in the catalog.  This one uses a mix of the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set, coordinating Magnolia Memory dies, Magnolica Lane Memories & More Card Pack, and Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Cards & Envelopes.  Super cool that most of what I needed for this card was already part of the Suite.

CreativeInkingHop-MagnoliaSuite-Card1Left-Lori-DSC09971

The Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack is loaded with 56 cards, plus sticker sheets!  The Vellum layers are already stamped with the images...I just added some color using the Mossy Meadow Light Stampin' Blends on the leaves.  The large Magnolia image was inked in Memento black, stamped onto Whisper White, colored with Stampin' Blends markers and die cut.  The sentiment tag is a sticker, but it's easy to convert it to be a regular tag...simply pounce the back with an Embossing Buddy.  The powder dust will reduce the tacky-ness and allow for Stampin' Dimensionals to do their job.

CreativeInkingHop-MagnoliaSuite-Card2-Lori-DSC09972

I love that the Magnolia Lane card bases have a nice Silver Foil engraved on the front.  It can be used to 'frame' one of the smaller Memories & More cards.  All I did to this one was add the sticker that trims the pre-stamped sentiment and a few flower stickers to the lower bottom before adding dimensionals and centering over another card I trimmed down from the pack.

CreativeInkingHop-MagnoliaSuiteCard2Flat-Lori-DSC09978


Again, you can make any of the stickers a 'non-sticker' by pouncing the Embossing Buddy all over the stickers backside.  I love the new ribbon pack, too....sooo soft and easy to create bows and knots.  Yummy!

Would you like to create this bundle of cards using the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack and other complimentary 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.
