This month's blog hop features the new color palette Celebrating In Colors (May 2022) kit.  I'm super excited about this kit because everyone gets to play with the new 2022-2024 In Colors!  They are a wonderful selection of colors...bold, bright and oh-so cheery!

PPXHop-May2022 Celebrating In Colors Orchid Oasis Birthday Card-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05917I started with a Basic White Thick card base that showcases all FIVE In Colors on one card.  There is a mix of cardstock, ink and embellishments on each.  The piece that is a diagonal cut with rounded corner is actually the flap from each of the envelopes that are included in the kit.  I trimmed off the glue part of the flap, added it to a piece of cardstock and die cut using the Deckled Rectangles Dies.  Each die cut shows off a different Embossing Folder before it was adhered to a piece of Vellum cardstock cut at 4-1/8 x 5-3/8.  The texture is the Gingham Embossing Folder, then the whole set of layers was adhered to the card front.  The "HAPPY" sentiment is one of the images in the kit.  This one is inked with Orchid Oasis onto a strip of Basic White cardstock and added to the card front with Dimensionals.  Before I did that, I wrapped some Tahitian Tide Baker's Twine on one end and tied into a bow.  The 2nd sentiment is heat embossed with White onto a strip of Sweet Sorbet and set into place with Dimensionals.  The final touch is the In Color Enamel Dots that coordinate with the Baker's Twine.

PPXHop-May2022 Celebrating In Colors Parakeet Party Birthday Card-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05916
The Tahitian Tide Envelope Flap & Sweet Sorbet cardstock was embossed with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder.  The HAPPY sentiment is inked with Parakeet Party; 2nd sentiment heat embossed onto Starry Sky; and Orchid Oasis Baker's Twine and Enamel Dot.

PPXHop-May2022 Celebrating In Colors Starry Sky Birthday Card-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05920
The Orchid Oasis Envelope Flap & Parakeet Party cardstock was embossed with the Stripes & Splatters 3D Embossing Folder.  The HAPPY sentiment is inked with Starry Sky; 2nd sentiment heat embossed onto Tahitian Tide; and Sweet Sorbet Baker's Twine and Enamel Dot.

PPXHop-May2022 Celebrating In Colors Sweet Sorbet Birthday Card-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05918
The Starry Sky Envelope Flap & Tahitian Tide cardstock was embossed with the Cascading Ruffles 3D Embossing Folder.  The HAPPY sentiment is inked with Sweet Sorbet; 2nd sentiment heat embossed onto Orchid Oasis; and Parakeet Party Baker's Twine and Enamel Dot.

PPXHop-May2022 Celebrating In Colors Tahitian Tide Birthday Card-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05919
The Sweet Sorbet Envelope Flap & Orchid Oasis cardstock was embossed with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder.  The HAPPY sentiment is inked with Tahitian; 2nd sentiment heat embossed onto Parakeet Party; and Starry Sky Baker's Twine and Enamel Dot.

PPX Crew Blog Hop — March Alternate Paper Pumpkin Beyond The Horizons Birthday Card

Hello my stamping friends!  Welcome to another series of our PPX Crew Monthly Blog Hop!  I'm very happy you have stopped by because our Crew is a group of Stampin' Up!

This month's blog hop features the nature-inspired Beyond The Horizons (March 2022) kit.  This time of year is always an extra special kit because we are celebrating Paper Pumpkin's birthday!  TOOT-TOOT!

Free Stamp Set Image

Not only do we get a special patterned souvenir box that all of our supplies come in, but this year we received a 2nd stamp set!!  This one coordinates with the New Horizons Suite Collection available in the January-June 2022 Mini catalog.  Love it when something like this happens...more bang for my buck!

PPXHop-March2022 Beyond The Horizons Birthday Flat-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05754

This months kit came with amazing envelopes that are patterned on the outside and a different pattern on the inside.  Since the primary neutral color is Basic White, I decided to cut up one of the envelopes and use it as designer series paper.  The Pale Papaya is the larger piece that is matted with Old Olive cardstock; and the inside was the Old Olive skinny later.  Both layers are adhered to an Evening Evergreen card base (4-1/2 x 11, scored at 5-1/2).  Before planting the larger layer, I wrapped some of the beautiful Pale Papaya Grosgrain Ribbon that came with the kit and tied into a bow.

PPXHop-March2022 Beyond The Horizons Birthday Sentiment-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05756

The flower image is set up as a 2-step stamping technique.  The solid piece was stamped once, and the outlined image was inked and stamped twice to show contrast between the two images.  I hand cut the flower, as well as, the Old Olive leaves that are tucked behind.  I popped this floral arrangement with dimensionals and set onto a Stitched So Sweetly Basic White die cut.  The sentiment layer mimics one of the punch out pieces with the kit...Basic White that was punched on each edge using the Banners Pick A Punch.

PPXHop-March2022 Beyond The Horizons Birthday LT-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05751

Finish the card by adding the Stitched So Sweetly focal arrangement to the card front with Dimensionals.  Now looking at the pictures of my card, I realized that I forgot to sprinkle some of the Iridescent Rhinestones that came with the kit on the card.  GEESH!  I'll be fixing that as soon as I finish typing this post.

PPX Crew Blog Hop — September Haunts & Harvest Alternate Fall Leaves Birthday

PPXCrew-BlogHop-Header

Hello my stamping friends!  Welcome to our first PPX Crew Monthly Blog Hop!  I am so excited you are here.  Our Crew is a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who are collaborating to create alternate projects using the supplies (plus, additional supplies) that come with each monthly Paper Pumpkin kit.  Each month, my Paper Pumpkin subscribers and members of my Stampin' Up! family of demonstrators receive exclusive tutorials to beautiful alternate projects created by our PPX Crew.  Well, now we are creating a 2nd alternate project that is being shared with everyone!

PPXHop-Sept Haunts Harvest Fall Blessing RT-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC04921

0921_PP_TOOLKIT_STAMPARTWORK

 

This month's blog hop features the lovely Haunts & Harvest (September 2021) kit.  I chose to focus on the stamp set included with the kit and the coordinating Harvest Meadows Designer Series Paper because the kits treat packages are so stinking cute that I have assembled them per the instructions and will be handing out to colleagues and students.

 

PPXHop-Sept Haunts Harvest Fall Blessing Timber EF-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC04925

The Crumb Cake cardbase has one of the Misty Moonlight patterns from the Harvest Meadows Designer Series paper pack with a strip of Misty Moonlight cardstock on the right.  The Very Vanilla layer was first dry embossed using the Timber 3D Embossing Folder, then die cut the center with a Stitched Rectangles Die (2-1/8 x 3-1/2).

PPXHop-Sept Haunts Harvest Fall Blessing Close Ribbon-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC04927

For a bit of Fall color, I bordered the left edge of the Timber embossed layer with a strip of Bumblebee cardstock.  Garnish the open frame area with a piece of 3/8 Diamond Weave Ribbon finished off with Linen Thread tied into a bow.  Adhere to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.

PPXHop-Sept Haunts Harvest Fall Blessing Inks-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC04919

 

Adhere the Stitched Rectangle die cut directly to the card front.  Ink and stamp the large leaf image from the Haunts & Harvest Paper Pumpkin kit with Pumpkin Pie and Bumblebee, adding the veins with Soft Suede ink.  The small leaf was inked and stamped using Soft Succulent, Poppy Parade and Pale Papaya ink pads.  All of the leaves were fussy cut (hand cut using Paper Snips) and added to the center using Multipurpose Liquid glue with exception to the Bumblebee large leaf.  It was added with a Dimensional.  The sentiment was inked with Misty Moonlight and stamped onto a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock and added to the card front with Dimensionals.

Happy Birthday America — Red-White-Blue Pinwheel Tower Card

Happy Birthday to America!!  God Bless the Red-White & Blue and to all of our military men and women who serve our country proudly.

Biggest Wish-America Birthday Stamps-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04551

Today's card creation is a super fun one as it shows off a couple of different styles and techniques.  The Biggest Wish stamp set and Stitched Stars Dies are the highlighting the main attraction to show off the Red-White & Blue color scheme.

Biggest Wish-America Birthday Blends-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04562
The first technique to display is the fabulous watercoloring with Stampin' Blends and Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol.  One important note...you'll want to purchase and use the 91% Alcohol content product in order to get the desired results of the watercolor effect.  When I used a lower percentage, the colors ran a lot more and ended up bleeding and mixing more than I desired.

Biggest Wish-America Birthday Stars-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04544

Check out this boomer of a fun-fold technique!!  It's been name the "Pinwheel Tower" card design/fold.  This interactive card definitely proclaims a huge WOW factor.  It's super easy to assemble, too.  The Basic White Stitched Stars Die rests upon a pattern of designer paper from the FREE with qualifying party called Pattern Party.  If you'd like to Host an in-person or virtual Stampin' Up! party to earn the 48-sheet pack for free, give me a holler!

Biggest Wish-America Birthday Flat Envelope-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04553

To add a little more festivity for the occasion, use the little stars that come out of the die to decorate one of the side panels.

Biggest Wish-America Birthday Tag-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04557
The sentiments from the Biggest Wish set adds on a whole other level of fun!  The 'Birthday' sentiment was inked in Misty Moonlight and stamped off two times before stamping the third time onto the Basic White strip.  This was to make sure the 'happy', inked in Real Red, would stand out from the big bold lettering of the first stamp.

For all the details and step-by-step instructions on how to create this card, watch the replay of my Facebook Live.  I get together with crafters for a new episode of Sunday Stampin' Dreams each Sunday at 2:30P.

I hope you give this fun-fold and coloring technique a try!  You are going to be addicted, I'm sure!  These interactive cards are always a big bang for you and your recipients.  Happy 4th; and stay safe, my friends!

Retiring Snailed It — Hello Alcohol and Reinker Background Technique

Snailed It-Hello Alcohol Ink Backgroundx2-Lori-DSC04464

As I was looking through the January-June 2021 Mini catalog to see which sets and/or bundles I was going to miss A LOT, I stopped flipping the pages when I came across the Snailed It Suite on pages 54-55.  I think those snails are just so darned cute!  I've made quite a few projects using the stamp images, but the Snail Dies make creating a card super quick and easy to cut coordinating images from the Snail Mail Designer Series Paper, too.

JJ_2021_US_Page_01-Retiring-Lori- SnailedItBundle-156255

There's a new inking technique that I wanted to try using Rubbing Alcohol and Stampin' Up! Reinkers.  The result is really cool and guarantees that you'll never get the same result twice...making your handmade card even more unique!

Snailed It-Hello Alcohol Ink Background Close-Lori-DSC04465

I tried several different methods and means to create a 'smooshed' background look.  The Vellum cardstock produced a nice subtle smoosh look, but you have to work fast because the rubbing alcohol made the Vellum curl up.  I may have squirted a bit too much, too.  The Window Sheets produced more of a wet mash of ink...the colors blended a bit too much for me.  My favorite was the shimmery Pearlescent Specialty Paper.  It was a nice surprise to see the shimmer from the specialty paper transfer over to the Basic White cardstock layer. 

If I had used less squirts of rubbing alcohol on the Vellum, I'm certain I could leave to dry and use on another card.  The nice thing about the Window Sheet is that you can wash/rinse it and reuse for mass production. 

 

Snailed It-Hello Alcohol Ink Background Pearlescent-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04493

Buuut, the Pearlescent Specialty Paper won my vote as I was able to use it on another card as soon as it dried.  **squeal**  I demonstrated this card and how to create the fun alcohol and reinker background during my Sunday Stampin' Dreams online card class.  You can catch the replay here

Creative Inking Blog Hop — My favorite new Mini Catalog Brushed Blooms Bundle

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  Today, our wonderful Creative Inking designers have a bundle of projects inspired by the current January-June 2021 Mini catalog.  I have been playing with a new favorite bundle, which is the theme of our hop.  You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the very talented Susan Campfield's 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

I have been playing A LOT with the Brushed Blooms bundle.  This must not be a favorite choice for many crafters because I haven't found but a few samples while perusing online sources.  Well, I'm hoping to change the minds of many crafters when you see the creation I've got to share with you.  This bundle is fantastic because it can produce fun and whimsical designs, as well as, simple and elegant results.

CreativeInkingHop-Brushed Blooms Birthday RT-Stampin Dreams Lori-DSC04147
 
When I first saw the Brushed Blooms stamp set in the JJ 2021 mini catalog, I immediately paired it with the geometric patterns found in the True Love Designer Series Paper pack.  It just seemed to be the perfect fit for the large brushstrokes die found in the Beautiful Brushstrokes Dies set.  The flowers are what bring in the elegance component because they can be used as a single or group multiples into a bouquet, of sorts.

I die cut the patterned paper with the largest scallop stitched rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies set.  So that the patterned paper didn't steal the show, I layered on a piece of Vellum cardstock that is 1/8" smaller.  The staggered brushstrokes background is made up of the die cuts that I cut from Basic Black cardstock.  To bring in a little sheen and shine, I cut the Tasteful Labels Die from a Champagne Foil Sheet.
 
CreativeInkingHop-Brushed Blooms Birthday Flat-Stampin Dreams Lori-DSC04138
 

The largest flower is inked with Mango Melody and the two smaller flowers are inked with Flirty Flamingo...all die cut with the corresponding die that comes in the Beautiful Brushstrokes Dies set.  The leaves are a combination of inked images (Soft Sea Foam) and die cuts from Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  The inked leaves have a matching die, too, making everything on the card a die cut, except the sentiment.  It was inked with Tuxedo Black Memento and stamped onto a thin strip of Basic White cardstock.  The sections that are popped up with dimensionals are the Champagne layer, the large Mango Melody flower and the sentiment.  Before placing the large flower, I made a large white bow from the Snail Mail Twine combo pack and set behind.  Oh, my gosh—I just love the Brushed Blooms Bundle!  Simply gorgeous, don't you think?

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.
