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!

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.

 

At this time, you are now ready to hop on over to the next PPX Crew 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!

Creative Inking Blog Hop — Celebrating Sale-A-Bration with Textures & Frames

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  Today, our amazing team of Creative Inking designers are showcasing a bundle of projects featuring the wonderful Sale-A-Bration products you can earn for free with a qualifying order.  There's a mix of stamp sets, designer series paper and dies that lend itself to lots of FUN creativity!  You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the very talented Susan Campbell'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 and amazing projects.

CreativeInking-HeaderImage

I'm really having a ton of fun playing with all of the Sale-A-Bration selections, but the highlight of the card I'm sharing features the Textures & Frames stamp set (free with $50 purchase)!  It's like playing with geometric shapes or Legos to see what fun patterns can be created, but with the added personal choice of colors. 

CreativeInkingHop-Textures & Frames Sheep-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04819

I took the one image from the Textures & Frames set and incorporated four colors found on the back of the Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper pack (another freebie Sale-A-Bration item with a $50 purchase).  The image was randomly stamped to create my own fun patterned paper that I matted with Basic Black cardstock.  I layered a piece of Vellum cardstock over a piece of Penguin Playmates designer paper to tone it down so it wouldn't steal away from the main stamped background.
 
CreativeInkingHop-Textures & Frames Sheep-Flat Close-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04827
I have a young lady who has recently achieved a wonderful goal, but was too modest to share her success with others.  She's a bit quiet, so I thought this adorable sheep image from the Counting Sheep stamp set (another freebie with a $50 purchase) was perfect to help me 'quietly' recognize and congratulate her. 
 

CreativeInkingHop-Textures & Frames Sheep-Supplies-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04825

The best part of this card is that I was able to earn the Sale-A-Bration Host stamp set, In Your Words!  It's filled with a wide variety of all occasion sentiments, including the one I inked in Memento Black and stamped onto another Textures & Frames image.  This one was inked in Soft Sea Foam and die cut using a scalloped Layering Circles Die.  Both the sentiment and sheep are set in place with Stampin' Dimensionals.

For all the details and step-by-step instructions on how to create this fun Textures & Frames Celebration card, watch the video tutorial I've created and posted on my YouTube Channel — Stampin' Dreams—Lori Mueller.

Creative Inking Blog Hop — Stampin' Up! Dies Have it With an Explosion Treat Box

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  Today, our amazing team of Creative Inking designers have created a bundle of projects featuring our large collection of Stampin' Up! Dies that greatly assist with creativity and allow lots more fun while your at it!  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 beautiful and amazing projects.

I'm going to warn you (if you don't already know this about me) that I LUV it when Stampin' Up! introduces a stamp set that is bundled with a coordinating set of dies!  **squeal**  I mean, how much easier can papercrafting get?  Plus, it just makes my heart go pitter-patter knowing that there is going something in those set of dies that can be used outside of the box than originally intended.  For this project, I'm featuring the Pansy Patch Suite of products...the Pansy Patch stamps, Pansy Dies, and the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper.

CreativeInkingHop-Pansy Patch Explosion Box Closed-Stampin Dreams- Lori Mueller-DSC04660
For some regions of the United States, summer is quickly coming to a close because the next school season is on the horizon!  GASP!!  For my project, I'm featuring a fun treat package to hand out to teachers, daycare providers, the bank associates that greet me at the drive-up window, and the list goes on.  It's called an Explosion Treat Box and is super simple to set up and put together.
 
CreativeInkingHop-Pansy Patch Explosion BoxOpen-Stampin Dreams- Lori Mueller-DSC04673
 
Plus, this fun project is perfect for helping me use all those beautiful designer series papers I have in my stash.  The Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper is full of color to hold this yummy Star Cookie!  This little treat box only requires 4 score lines using the Simply Scored Tool, no cutting, and loads of fun choosing which Pansies you want to die cut to decorate your box top.  To top the charts using Stampin' Dies...I'm showcasing the following — Stitched So Sweetly largest scallop die for the box top, the Tailor Made Tags Dies for the sentiment, and of course, the Pansy Dies to cut flowers directly from the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper.  LOVE!!
 

CreativeInkingHop-Pansy Patch Explosion Box Ribbons-Stampin Dreams- Lori Mueller-DSC04667

The best part about the Pansy Petals Designer Series paper pack—it includes all of the 2021-2023 In Colors, so the possibilities of color combinations is almost endless!  So. Much. Fun!!  AND, you can get it on sale during the Stampin' Up! Designer Series paper sale...now through August 2, 2021.  Don't miss out stocking up so that you can make lots of these explosion treat boxes.

Happy Father's Day to all the Dad's in the world.  Most men I know really enjoy covering their locks of hair with some sort of a ball cap.  My father is no exception!  He wears one every single day that he is working on the farm or trucking down the road.  So, when I saw the new Hats Off stamps and coordinating Hat Builder Dies, I knew that bundle would be landing in my creative space.

CreativeInkingHop-Hats Off Fancy Fold Notecard Stamps-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04532

I chose to make a cute note card that works like a mini easel card.  It's a fun fold that allows the recipient to prop their card on the desk or end table for display.

Creative Inking Blog Hop — New Catalog Must Have Spiral Dye

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  Today, our wonderful Creative Inking designers have created a bundle of projects featuring our favorites that are a "Must Have" from the new Annual catalog.  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 beautiful and amazing projects.

CreativeInking-HeaderImage

The minute I came across the Spiral Dye Background stamp in the new catalog, I knew I just had to have it!  Who can resist receiving something tie-dyed?  But even better...who can resist creating cards and other projects using this stamp?  The color combinations are endless!

CreativeInkingHop-Spiral Dye Amazing Front-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04400
For this super fun card, I used a couple of the new 2021-2023 In Colors...Pale Papaya and Soft Succulent.  I just love how soft it looks all spread across the Very Vanilla card base.  I thought about adding some texture to the Soft Succulent layer, but really wanted the stamped Spiral Dye to be the focal point.  It was super easy to create a 2-color tie-dye result.  I used my Stamparatus as a guide of placement for the first color stamped.  Then, flip the Very Vanilla layer 180 degrees, placing it in the exact same spot.  Remember to clean your stamp before adding new ink color to stamp the 2nd time.  Comes out perfect every time!
 
CreativeInkingHop-Spiral Dye Amazing Flat Tag-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04407
 

The sentiment comes from the Color & Contour stamp set and was inked with Soft Succulent and stamped onto Very Vanilla cardstock before cutting out with the Tailor Made Tags Dies set.  I love that the dies set comes with a die that will cut out reinforcement pieces (like the old days for page dividers in a 3-ring binder) allowing you to add a coordinating color from your overall creation.

CreativeInkingHop-Spiral Dye Amazing RT-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04412

To add a little more balance to the two colors, I tied some of the new Pale Papaya 3/8" Open Weave Ribbon to the end of the Tailor Made Tags die cut.  Then added the sentiment layer to the front of the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

The Cinnamon Cider card base and color palette of Highland Heather, Daffodil Delight, Blushing Bride and Petal Pink are all carry-over from the last catalog.  The flower images, sentiment and gorgeous Hand-Penned Designer Series paper made their debut in the new 2021 Annual catalog.  I covered the front of the cardbase with a multitude of 2nd rendition stamping using the splatter image in the Color & Contour stamp set.  This set includes several 2-step stamping images, which makes it easy to add color if you don't have any of the other means of coloring tools (Watercolor Pencils, Water Brushes, Stampin' Blends, etc.).  Because I love layers and dimension, I added some new Pale Papaya & White 1/2" Ribbon behind the Highland Heather Scalloped Contours die.  The 2-step flowers were arranged in a bouquet, of sorts on the die.

The lovely sentiment was inked with Cinnamon Cider and die cut with a Layering Circle Die; then, set in place with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I have to tell you, while creating this card, I was smelling the wonderful fragrance from some cut fresh flowers from my Uncles garden!  So beautiful!

Creative Inking Blog Hop — Congrats to Vine Design Golden Anniversary

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  Today, our wonderful Creative Inking designers have a bundle of projects featuring the Celebrations, of sorts...Love Always, Anniversary, Love You, etc.  You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the very talented Susan Campbells' blog. Please be sure to click the 'Next' button (found below) to move along the Creative Inking blog hop to see all the beautiful and amazing projects.

CreativeInking-HeaderImage

I have a number of Anniversary celebrations to acknowledge, one being a Golden Anniversary.  It is always a grand, heart-warming celebration to know that a couple has grown together in love for 50 years of their lives.  The Vine Design Bundle from the January-June 2021 Mini catalog includes a set of dies that are perfect for this kind of celebration.  The Flowering Vine Dies are so elegant, but yet, can generate a bold statement for the occasion. 

CreativeInkingHop-Vine Design 50 Anniversary Front-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04350
 
There is nothing more elegant than tieing a Basic Black card base with Basic White layers and Gold accents.  Mmm-mmmm!  Sooo pretty!
 
CreativeInkingHop-Vine Design 50 Anniversary Flat Close-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04342
 

The Basic White layer was run through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine with the Subtles 3D Embossing Folder (will retire on May 3).  The Flowering Vine Die was cut from Pearlescent Specialty Paper and backed with multiple cuts of the smaller flowers from Gold Foil paper.  Look at that pretty pearl sheen!  For more sparkle, each gold flower center was filled with a Gold Glitter Enamel Dot.  I love that there are 4 different sizes of dots...fit perfect for the different sized flowers.  To show off all the Pearl-y sheen and Gold flowers, I lined the Pearlescent die with a strip of Basic Black cardstock.

CreativeInkingHop-Vine Design 50 Anniversary RT-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04346

The sentiment comes from the Vine Design stamp set and was heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder before die cut with the layering die from the Flowering Vine Die set.  It was set into place with Stampin' Dimensionals.  To recognize the number of years being celebrated, the numbers come from the Playful Alphabet Dies set and were cut from Gold Foil paper.  A very simple, but elegant Anniversary card recognizing 50 years of love together.  Love-love-love!

Stamp It Blog Hop — Arrange A Wreath for Easter Photos

Good morning stampers and crafty friends! 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.

EasterHop-Header

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. You fill my cup!

There's a whole line-up of Easter themed projects that I'm sure will help you get a jump start on your holiday creations, so 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 — You Are Amazing Masculine Congrats

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  Today, our wonderful Creative Inking designers have a bundle of projects featuring the men in our lives.  I have been playing with a stamp set that coordinates with a Project Kit called You Are Amazing.  You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the very talented MJ Peters' blog. Please be sure to click the 'Next' button (found below) to move along the Creative Inking blog hop to see all the beautifulamazing projects.

CreativeInking-HeaderImage

There is so much potential for the You Are Amazing stamp set...well beyond the initial idea of the original project kit that is found on page 7 of the January-June 2021 Mini catalog.  The sentiments are versatile for any gender and any age.  One of my young students has recently achieved a goal he has worked super hard for during the last 6 months, and I'm sooo proud of him.  I know this card will bring a big fat grin on his face.

CreativeInking-You Are Amazing Men Congrats EaselLeft-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04272
 
It has been forever since I've made an easel card.  Interactive cards are always intriguing for the creator, as well as, the recipient.  The cardbase is Smoky Slate with a Stitched Rectangle created as a frame cut from one of the patterns from the Well Suited Designer Series Paper pack.  After creating the frame, I added a piece of Window Sheet to the back and die cut another Stitched Rectangle frame from Night of Navy cardstock to give the back a finished look from the back side.  The Window Sheet is used to help make the frame sturdy when propped up as an easel.
 
CreativeInking-You Are Amazing Men Congrats Upright-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04275
 

The cardbase front is scored at 2-3/4" before adhering the bottom half of the window frame.  The sentiment was inked with Stampin' Write Markers:  Cajun Craze, Night of Navy and Smoky Slate and die cut with the 2-5/8" Layering Circle die.  For balance, I added a 1/2" strip of Night of Navy and some Gold Thread from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack before adding the sentiment with Stampin' Dimensionals.

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'.

Stamp It Blog Hop — Final Sale-A-Bration Spring Fling to Heal Your Heart

Good morning stampers and crafty friends! I'm so happy you have stopped by.  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 all of the great inspiration.

Feb2015-TeamStampIt-Header


It's so hard to believe that Sale-A-Bration ends tomorrow at midnight!  YIKES!  With that said, that's what our hop theme is all about the Final Sale-A-Bration Spring Fling!  This last week, I attended a funeral for my long-time BFF's father.  The first thing I thought of was the Brushed Blooms Bundle and Heal Your Heart stamp sets.  The Heal Your Heart stamps are free with a $50 order during Sale-A-Bration and has several sentiments that fit this sad occasion.

StampItHop-Brushed Blooms-Heal Your Heart Flat-Stampin Dreams Lori-DSC04179

I'm still on a Brushed Blooms kick and couldn't resist creating a card that brought the two sets together.  I just love the images and dies from this bundle, so I brought in some of the True Love Designer Series Paper that was cut with the 2nd to largest scallop stitched rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies set.  To tone down the starkness of the Basic Black, I overlayed a piece of Vellum cardstock.

StampItHop-Brushed Blooms-Heal Your Heart Sympathy Close-Stampin Dreams Lori-DSC04182

I borrowed some inspiration for the Basic White layer from the January-June 2021 mini catalog (page 28).  It consists of a mix of Mint Macaron brushstrokes and Beautiful Brushstrokes Dies.  I first stamped the image from the Brushed Blooms stamp set randomly across the page and filled in with the brushstrokes die pieces.  Then used the little polka dot image inked with Memento, stamped off once, and stamped randomly across the whole area.  Super fun to create your own backgrounds using stamps and dies.

StampItHop-Brushed Blooms-Heal Your Heart Sympathy Front-Stampin Dreams Lori-DSC04183

The flower arrangement is made up of Mango Melody and Flirty Flamingo with Soft Sea Foam leaves and Mint Macaron leaf veins...all cut with dies from the Beautiful Brushstrokes Dies set.  For a little softness, I accented the flowers with some White Baker's Twine from the Snail Mail Twine Combo pack.  The sentiment from Heal Your Heart was inked with Memento and trimmed and popped up with Dimensionals.

Would you like to re-create this Sympathy 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.
