Stamp It Blog Hop — Wonder of the Season Memories & More Christmas

Hello stampers and crafty friends! I'm so happy you have stopped by.  Welcome to our end of November 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.

NovHop-TeamStampIt

Ready or not, this month's hop theme is all about the Christmas Holiday!  I'm trying to wrap my head around the fact that there are only 25 days to work on my Christmas cards.  I'm dragging my feet, but I've found a super simple AND cute system to help me get them done and out in the mail in no time at all.

StampItHop-Wonder of the Season Christmas Shaker-Lori-DSC03580
I love the Wonder of the Season Suite of products, but the Memories & More card pack  and the Wonder of the Season Memories & More Cards & Envelopes found in the August-December 2020 Mini catalog (page 31) are the prime target to help me create Christmas cards in record time.  The card pack comes with 48 pre-designed and printed cards in two sizes:  3" x 4" and 4" x 6".  Plus, there are some specialty cards, several sheets of stickers, and coordinating designer envelopes, too!  This particular pack includes multiples of the same pre-printed designs, which makes it nice for you to create small batches of the same card design.

StampItHop-Wonder of the Season Christmas Shaker Flat-Lori-DSC03566

Who doesn't love a good shaker card?  No one!  I trimmed the 4" x 6" Memories & More card by a 1/4" on each end to help spotlight the focal image with the Stitched Rectangles frame die cut from Shaded Spruce cardstock.  Because the 'greens' were pretty dominant, it needed some Real Red balance, so I added a strip of one of the foil cards to each end.

StampItHop-Wonder of the Season Christmas Shaker Joy-Lori-DSC03579

The Foam Adhesive Strips are the perfect width for the Shaded Spruce frame to build the shaker portion with a Window Sheet.  I was inspired to use the Sequins For Everything pack because of the groups of colored sequins are Green and Red.  A couple good pinches of each color were set in the middle of the focal image before adhering the shaker frame in place.  The "Joy" banner is one of the stickers that is part of the card pack...no additional adhesive needed to stick directly to the window sheet.

Creative Inking Blog Hop — A Quite Curvy Christmas Wreath

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  It's that time of year where we start planning for the biggest holiday of the year...Christmas!  Our amazing Creative Inking designers have a bundle of inspirational projects themed as "Christmas Cards".  You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the very talented Susan Campfields' 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've been aching to get my Curvy Christmas stamps inky and the bow branch image was the top of my list to use. 

CreativeInkingHop-CurvyChristmasWreath-Lori-DSC03491
 
In the back of my head, I remembered a card I designed for a past stamp class using an evergreen-type image.  So, I used that as my inspiration for today's card share.  I love to create non-traditional sized cards, and it's been a while since I've shown off a square card.  This one is 4-1/4" square and will fit perfectly into Stampin' Up!'s A2 sized envelopes.  The colors of Sahara Sand, Cherry Cobbler, and Shaded Spruce originate from the Classic Christmas Designer Series paper pack (also part of the Curvy Celebrations Suite).
 
CreativeInkingHop-CurvyChristmasWreathClose-Lori-DSC03496
 
I used my trusty Stamparatus to help create the perfectly aligned Shaded Spruce wreath.  Once you get the rotation pattern set, this will be a cinch to mass produce.  The Cherry Cobbler sprig die cuts were made with a die from the Curvy Dies.  This layout was calling for a dainty, yet rustic accessory, so I took some Linen Thread and unwound the fibers before tucking behind the Champagne Foil Layering Scallop Circle die cut.
 
CreativeInkingHop-CurvyChristmasWreathLeft-Lori-DSC03494
 

The sentiment was inked with Cherry Cobbler, stamped onto a strip of Whisper White and hand cut to form the wavy feature of the sentiment.  There needed to be some berries or 'ornaments' adorning the wreath, so I colored our Basic Pearls using the Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends and then scattered them throughout.  Simply lovely!

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.

 

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 — Itty Bitty Christmas in July

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

July2018-TeamStampIt-Header

This month's hop theme is Christmas in July.  Who wouldn't want a tad bit cooler weather; although, my body handles the heat a whole lot better than the frigid cold temps!

StampItHop-IttyBittyChristmasJuly-2Flat-Lori-DSC02508
These two little gems start off adorning the smaller cardbase and envelopes in the Assorted Memories & More Cards & Envelopes pack.  They measure 4-1/4" x 3-1/4" when folded and make the cutest little notecards.

StampItHop-IttyBittyChristmasJuly-GoldFrame-Lori-DSC02517

The patterned paper comes from the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper pack featuring almost all of the green tones available in the Stampin' Up! color families.  I chose to use Pretty Peacock that was embossed using the Greenery Embossing folder.  I love that there are TWO mini folders in that pack to choose from.  The sentiment comes from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set and was inked with Just Jade and then die cut using the Ornate Frames.

StampItHop-IttyBittyChristmasJuly-FernRT-Lori-DSC02513

I'm not sure what the name of this fancy fold card is, but I'm going to call it a vertical "Gate fold".  It is really easy to do.  For this one, I stamped the same sentiment in Just Jade, but punched it out using the Story Label Punch...showcasing the versatility of using the same layout, papers and accessories.

StampItHop-IttyBittyChristmas-2FlatOpen-Lori-DSC02510

The fun thing about this style of card is that you can write a short note or stamp a sentiment in this section before writing a traditional or lengthy message on the inside.

Would you like to create these adorable Thinking of You notecards?  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 — Tis The Season for Wrapped In Plaid Home Decor

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

Even though Christmas is next week, there is still plenty of time to craft up a special gift piece for that special loved one.  OR, you can keep it for yourself...whichever, your little heart desires. Teehehe The Wrapped In Plaid Designer Series paper speaks an elegant 'country chic' to me, so I thought I'd tie it together with the much loved Perfectly Plaid bundle found in the Holiday catalog (page 13-14) to re-purpose a wooden frame that I found in the Clearance Rack at a local store.  The inside platform measures 8-1/2" wide by 6-3/4" tall (measurements exclude the wooden frame).

PerfectlyPlaid-WoodFrameFront-Lori-DSC00711

This home decor piece would probably be labeled as a 'sampler' simply because it showcases a variety of dies, punches and techniques all on one platform.  I broke it up into 3 different panels, with the middle one designated as the focal image and complimented with 2 side panels.

PerfectlyPlaid-WoodenFrameStockings-LoriDSC00714

One of the patterns in the Wrapped In Plaid Designer Series paper pack has a variety of stockings that (in my mind) called for some fussy cutting.  With each stocking, the matted cardstock layer compliments one of the colors in the stocking.  The Gold Foil paper layer gave them a richer flavor for the line-up.  Super cute, right?!!!

PerfectlyPlaid-WoodenFrameSentiment-Lori-DSC00717

Have I told you how much I loooove stitched dies?  YUP!!  The bottom sentiment is originally a one-liner, but it wouldn't fit in the width of this particular panel, so I inked up each word using coordinating ink colors found in the designer paper and created my own sentiment layout.  This technique is called "masking" and is super easy.  Just have to remember to remove the tape before stamping; and clean the image before inking the sentiment with a new color.  Once you have that memorized, you're stamping like a champ!

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 and/or Holiday catalog 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!

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop — Winter Gifts Holiday Banner

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 November Paper Pumpkin kit.PPHop-HeaderGraphicThis month's kit (Winter Gifts) is filled with supplies to create 20 oversized gift tags (5 each of 4 different designs.  And, boy, are they super cute!


Every month, the kits include enough supplies to create the designed projects. And, that is what I primarily focus on using when creating my alternate project to share with you.  With the exception of not adding the ribbon tails to each tag, I followed the instructions to create the tags. 

PPHop-WinterGiftsTagBanner-Lori-DSC00684

To make them into a banner, I popped each tag up on an Early Espresso Nested Stitched die.  I used the largest die in the set.  I loved the designed tags in the kit that I thought it would be super easy to create this adorable banner that can be hung from an office door, adorning the front of a desk, or added to any wall as festive decoration.

PPHop-WinterGiftsTagsBanner-MerryXmas-Lori-DSC00685

When coordinating home decor, it is a pretty strong rule that you really need the arrangement done up with an odd number.  Since there were only 4 different tag designs, I had to come up with a 5th banner pennant.  So, I 'borrowed' the sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set and stamped it with Poppy Parade ink onto a Whisper White die cut from the Roses Dies (part of the Christmastime Is Here suite).  The patterned paper is from the Wrapped in Plaid designer series paper pack.  It coordinates perfectly with the kits color scheme – Shaded Spruce.

To get more inspiration for alternative ideas creating with the November Paper Pumpkin kit, make sure you visit the other A Paper Pumpkin Thing Group members' blogs to see what projects they have created to share with you.  I'll be on your heals to soak in the new ideas and inspiration.

The bitter cold temps have come back again in Nebraska, which means the snow will start flying soon, too.  I am sooo not ready for winter to arrive!  Our theme this month is all about the Christmas holiday and different traditions that everyone celebrates.

StampItHop-CupOfCheerHotChocoPocket-Lori-DSC00672


The Cup of Christmas stamp set and coordinating Cup Of Cheer Dies has been calling my name for several weeks.  So, with the cold weather, comes a nice cup of hot chocolate after a long day at work.  YUM!  This hot chocolate pocket was super easy to put together; and displays this fun winter pattern from the Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper pack.  I love it when sentiments are set up to allow me to use my Stampin' Write Markers to add more than one color.  Using coordinating colors from the designer paper (Real Red and Shaded Spruce), it just really makes the project look more detailed without any added effort.  YAY!

Stamping Around The World — Christmastime Is Here for Sharing Handmade Gifts

AroundTheWorld-CountryBlogHop-Header

Hello, and good morning!  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-ChristmastimeNotebookFront-Lori-DSC00379

It's craft fair season, which means that I am crafting up a storm preparing beautiful gift items for purchase in my booth.  One of my favorite things to do is repurpose items I find in Dollar bins, clearance shelves, and any recyclable jars/tins/boxes that come through the doors of my home.  I found a few chipboard notebooks that were perfect for 'redecorating" the plain-jane covers.  And the timing of our new Christimastime Is Here Suite of products couldn't have been better.  It is filled with lovely papers and embellishments that stem from a two-part stamp set and coordinating set of dies. LOVE it!

SATWHop-ChristmastimeNotebook-Close-Lori-DSC00378

The Christmastime Is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper is absolutely stunning.  You get 4 each of 3 double-sided sheets with one side inlaid with gold foil and the other is a subtle, muted pattern.  I love the fact that there are 4 sheets to help me mass produce more of the same project.  I held my Facebook Live presentation showing how to convert a simple notebook into a remarkable thing of beauty...simple and easy!  You can watch my step-by-step demonstration here:

Christmastime Is Here Altered Notebook Facebook Live video

 

SATWHop-ChristmastimeNotebookFlat-LoriDSC00376

I'll tuck this gem into a cello bag and secure with more Gold Shimmer ribbon tied into a bow and offer these notebooks as the perfect gift for any school teacher, colleague, BFF, or relative.  I hope you'll give this project a whirl...you'll be sooo happy you did! :)

Christmas Under the Mistle Toe — December Tutorial Design Team Blog Hop

 

TutorialBundle-BlogHop-HeaderImage

Hello stampers and crafters!!  Welcome to the All Star Tutorial Bundle Blog Hop for December! You are joining during the round of tutorials (August–January). This team brings to you a "super bundle" of 12 tutorials using only Stampin' Up! products.  There are amazing projects in this bundle that range from traditional-style cards, fancy fold, 3D giftables and various techniques!  We each offer this in our own business for free with a minimum order, as well as, a stand alone PDF purchase.

TutorialBundleDesignTeam-Collage

Here are the sneak peeks...it's loaded with fun and excitement and something you don't want to miss out on. 

DecemberSneakPeekBundle-Collage

Each month's tutorial bundle is based on currently available supplies from Stampin’ Up! and lists both metric and imperial measurements. So whether you are a cms or inches person, we’ve got you covered!  Make sure to look for the full details at the bottom of this post.

For this month's extra project, I am so happy to have pulled out my regular Annual catalog to play with holiday products within those pages.  I decided to showcase the Under the Mistle Toe Designer Series paper and the Hearts Come Home stamp set.  Since I can only show you a sneak peek of the project I created in the actual December Tutorial Bundle PDF, I'm sharing a 2nd project I made especially for this blog hop using most of the same products. It’s different from the project in the Tutorial Bundle as they are exclusive and you won’t see them anywhere else!

I grew up living on a farm and surrounded with a tree shelter belt that had evergreen trees growing in the mix.  This pattern of designer series paper reminds me a lot of home with the images of fir branches, pine cones, and a mix of other tree species.

TutorialHopDec2018-UnderMistleToeFlat-Lori-DSC09142

One way of toning down a busy pattern is to keep the layout and sentiment layers pretty simple.  The thin strip of Copper Foil is such a pretty distraction from the busy pattern, which helped to show off the two-colored sentiment (Real Red and Shaded Spruce).  I just had to throw in a couple Sprig punches of Shaded Spruce and Sparkle Glimmer paper for a little contrast...but, not too much.

I hope you enjoyed my extra card project.  The clean and simple layout is sometimes hard for me, but I did happen to whip this up in under an hour!  haha!  I'm working really hard to break that habit of always creating and showing off more of the Avid crafting style.  How did I do?

 


The Tutorial Bundles are based on currently available supplies from Stampin' Up! and include both Imperial (inches) and Metric measurements.  Soooo, no matter where you live in the world, you can purchase the tutorial and will be able to create the projects.
