Creative Inking Blog Hop — Goodbye Forever Delightfully Detailed Suite

Hello stampers and crafty friends! Welcome to my blog; and to the Creative Inking Blog Hop for the month of May!  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

The month of May is a mix of emotions when it comes to changing out the current Annual Stampin' Up! catalog with a new one.  Yes, it is sad to see our favorite products retiring and never available to purchase and play with, buuut, all those feelings can fade away when new goodies are seen in the new beautiful catalog.

DelightfullyDetailedM&MCards-147038G


One of the many products I'm going to miss rests all within the Delightfully Detailed Suite of products found on pages 38-39 in the current 2018-2019 Annual catalog.  I absolutely fell in love with the color combination of Blackberry Bliss, Grapefruit Grove and Mint Macaron...three beautiful colors that make up all the detail in the variety of goodies available in this suite.  The main product is the Detailed With Love stamp set, but the Delightfully Detailed Memories & More Card Pack is filled with 56 fun cards and accessories to help create easy and elegant greeting cards.  Yes, these are the same cards that help a beginning crafter create quick and easy memory books (even novice scrapbookers can enjoy inserting the fun patterns to any full layout).

CreativeInkingHop-DelightfullyDetailedCard1-Lori-DSC09879

Pair up the Memories & More card pack with the Delightfully Detailed Note Cards & Envelopes and you've got the easiest part of crafting greeting cards all within your inky fingers.  Although, if you wanted, you wouldn't need ink!  GASP!  But, it is very true!  All you would need is a variety of adhesives (Snail, Stampin' Dimensionals, and Multipurpose Liquid Glue), a trimmer and Paper Snips, and you'll a fun-filled day of stocking up your stash of greeting cards that hit the Birthday, Thank You, and Thinking of You categories.

CreativeInkingHop-DelightfullyDetailedCard2-Lori-DSC09882

I do love my ink, though.  The ink pads and Stampin' Write markers are my main inks because nothing is more exciting than to get a handmade card in the mail than to first feel the excitement of a hand stamped envelope to deliver it in.  Even the postal carrier will have a smile on their face...I guarantee it!

CreativeInkingHop-DelightfullyDetailedCard3-Lori-DSC09883

The Delightfully Detailed Note Cards are already set up with a background watercolor wash in a variety of colors.  All you have to do is find one of the 56 cards that you like to adorn with stickers, ribbons/bakers twine, and Faceted Dots.  Now, with this card, I did toss in a little extra for this Thank You by die cutting some ovals that layer each other and coordinate with the Blackberry Bliss card base.

CreativeInkingHop-DelightfullyDetailedCard4-Lori-DSC09887

This card is using a regular Whisper White Thick cardstock base cut 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" that I color washed Blackberry Bliss ink onto the front using my Aqua Painter.  The detailed pattern paper is one of the pieces that came with the Memories & More card pack and I couldn't bear to cut it up.  The fun punched corners was done using the Detailed Trio Punch...happy thing because it is NOT on the retiring list of products!  YAY!!  Buuut, it is bundled with the Detailed With Love stamp set.  If you love the variety of images in that set...and, you love the punch...why not save 10% and get them together?!!  See how fun it is to stamp the envelope?!!  I bet that if you received this fun package in your mailbox that you would start opening it while walking back to the house.  Am I right?

04-15-19_header_retiring_list_na

Creative Inking Blog Hop — Meant To Be Sharing The Love

Good evening my stamper friends! I'm so happy that you're traveling the Creative Inking Blog Hop for the month of January! This months theme is geared towards Sharing The Love!  This does not necessarily have to revolve around Valentine's Day, so I created a project that can be used for any celebration of love or appreciation.  I can't wait to share with you!!

CreativeInking-HeaderImage

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.


CreativeInkingHop-AllMyLoveGableBoxFront-Lori-DSC09296

So, to start off this post, I have a confession to make.  I have never created a project using our LOVELY Gable Boxes!  GASP!!  They come in both Lustrous White and Silver, both of which, I have in my stash, but haven't found the right moment or need to dress one up.  Well, here we go because that is going to change!

CreativeInkingHop-AllMyLoveGableBoxFlat-Lori-DSC09305

I am in the middle of designing several different projects as prototypes for my daughter to give little gifts to her bridesmaids later this year.  Yes, if I don't start early, I'll be freaking out later.  These boxes measure 4" x 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" and can hold quite a few small thoughtful items. The Meant To Be stamp set and coordinating Be Mine Stitched Framelits aren't just for creating Valentine gifts and cards.  I have found this bundle to be very versatile and fitting for many occasions.

CreativeInkingHop-AllMyLoveGableBoxLeft-Lori-DSC09300
My new fav product to use in my creations is the Tufted Dynamic Embossing folder and the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies.  That Stitched Scalloped edging is to 'die' for; and the pillow effect from the Tufted embossing folder is super cute embedded within the scalloped heart die.  I am having so much fun playing with the Lovely Lipstick Foil Paper, too.  It comes in a pack of 6 sheets (3 Grapefruit Grove and 3 Lovely Lipstock) and is one of the free selections in the Sale-A-Bration catalog with a $50 product purchase.

All of the ingredients for my card are listed at the bottom of this post.  Click on any of the items and you'll be directed to my online store and add any of them to your shopping cart.  I sooo appreciate your business and for choosing me as your Stampin' Up! demonstrator.

Last Day of Snowflake Showcase with Buffalo Check

OH. MY. GOLLY!!  Where did the month of November escape to? Eeeek!  Even though we still have snow on the ground and the forecast indicates more on the way, it doesn't stop the clock indicating that today is the last day to get your copy of the Snowflake Showcase stamp sets, snowflake dies and trinkets.  If only we could back up the clock to gain more time to finish all the projects and tasks we have on our list!  *sigh*

10.01.18_SHAREABLE_Q4_OUT_OF_PUB_ENG

There is a lot of versatility with the two stamp sets included in this promotion.  You get a big bang for your buck with 20 individual dies to run through your Big Shot...snowflakes galore!  And, who doesn't like trinkets?!!

 

SnowIsGlistening-Congrats-Lori-DSC09122

I love to think outside the box and sometimes go against the grain of traditional colors related to annual festivities.  That includes creating winter-y and holiday cards that are not full of reds and greens. What do you think of my favorite go-to color combinations: Coastal Cabana and Poppy Parade?  Super pretty, right?!!

SnowIsGlistening-CongratsFlat-Lori-DSC09129

To really make the snowflakes pop, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to rest them on a Very Vanilla cardstock piece that was stamped with the Buffalo Check background stamp with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  To ensure that placement of the Buffalo Check was not crooked (because that would drive me crazy for this card design...haha!) I used my awesome Stamparatus tool.  LOVE that tool!

SnowIsGlistening-Congrats-FlatClose-Lori-DSC09132

Since I started with a Coastal Cabana cardbase, I thought it looked better to use Poppy Parade for the largest Snowflake die.  Then top it off with a complimentary Coastal Cabana smaller snowflake die and a metal trinket.  Snowflakes need a little bling to show off their luster, so I mixed in some Silver Metallic Thread between the layers.

SnowIsGlistening-CongratsLeft-Lori-DSC09124

I chose the Congratulations sentiment found in the Happiness Surrounds stamp set, but you could use any sentiment to fit any occasion...birthday, anniversary and a simple 'hello'.  Snowflakes in the winter are not specific to any particular holiday...just the bitter winter months of the year.  haha!

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop — Blissful Blooms

Hello and welcome Stampers and Papercrafters to another fun and exciting A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop!!   A number of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the world have joined together to share alternative projects using supplies from the August monthly kit named "Blissful Blooms".  I really surprised myself creating alternate projects with the August kit...everything just seemed to come together super easy, and that doesn't always happen for me.  Many crafting sessions find me pondering on my creations for an undisclosed amount of time.  haha!  I had a ton of fun creating my altered kit projects and I can't wait to show them off to you...let's go take a peek!

PPHop-HeaderPic

This months kit is very elegant and is designed for all occasions...sympathy, thinking of you, congratulations, etc.  Super exciting!!

August2018-BlissfulBlooms


For my creation, I did a combination of products from the paper pumpkin kit and coordinating colors of cardstock and classic inks (Old Olive, Blackberry Bliss and Flirty Flamingo).

PPHop-BlissfulBlooms-Lori-DSC07596


This kit came with small-type tags, but I was needing a sympathy card and really wanted the sentiment to stand out and make a statement.  The Old Olive cardstock strip was run through the Big Shot using the new Corrugated Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing folder.  I was looking for texture and something solid to help the matted focal point stand out a bit from the floral cardbase.

 

PPHop-BlissfulBloomsFlat-Lori-DSC07598

The Flirty Flamingo & Silver Baker's Twine was my main factor determining the large scalloped Oval die cut from Silver Foil paper.  The rest of the card front helped me bring in little bits of the other colors...Blackberry Bliss accenting the Shimmery White Oval die cut and the Old Olive and Flirty Flamingo ink colors for the sentiment.  I love how Stampin' Up! makes it sooo easy for me to coordinate the color palettes to various papers, inks, and embellishments.

PPHop-BlissfulBloomsLeft-Lori-DSC07593

So, what do you think?  I love the sentiment...and, I love the different color tones of the floral card front.  My hope is that it will bring a warm smile to my friends face who is dealing with a tragic loss of a dear loved one.

 


Floral Cardbase Turns into Gift Box

Now to flip to an exciting occasion, I have a few of my team members who have recently hit a couple of different milestones. I love to recognize them with little gifts of appreciation and gratitude that they have chosen me to be their team leader.

PPHop-BlissfulBloomsBox-Lori-DSC07600

Look how beautiful this little box turned out...so elegant!  The lid comes from the card base front...the box bottom was made using the back of the card base.  How cool is that?!!

PPHop-BlissfulBloomsBoxOpen-Lori-DSC07605

Little gift boxes are always a big hit with mini York Peppermint Patties!  :)  I'm really pleased with how these projects came together...super easy, elegant and FUN! 


To get more inspiration for alternative ideas creating with the August 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.

Creative Inking Blog Hop — Sketch Challenge with Color Your Season

Hello stamper and crafter friends! Welcome to my crafty spot on the Creative Inking Blog Hop for the month of August! This months theme is geared around a pre-determined card sketch.  I am super excited to create from a sketch because that takes most of the designing lull out of my busy week. l can't wait to share my creation with you!  :)

CreativeInking-HeaderImage

You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the very talented Sandra Motts' blog. Please be sure to click the 'Next' button (found below) to move along the Creative Inking blog hop. If you get off track at any time, the full line up below will help you move along from blog to blog.


Here is what the card sketch looks like...pretty clean and simple, right?!!  I thought so, too!

Sketch-August2018Hop

It has been a while since I have played with the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper, I thought it was perfect for the help I needed.  You see, this large pack of 12" x 12" designer series paper is packed full of coordinating colors to mix-n-match...a definite helpful starting tool for the creative mind that might be in a creative rut.  So, I picked on the colors of Blackberry Bliss, So Saffron, Mint Macaron, and Shimmery White cardstocks.  Oh, so pretty!!

 

CreativeInkingHop-ColorYourSeasonFront-Lori-DSC07564

  • Next up was choosing what stamp set I needed for the special occasion that I had in mind.  And, look-ey there!  I couldn't pass up the Blended Seasons stamp set and coordinating Stitched Seasons Framelits...especially, since this bundle is only available during the month of August.  Plus, among all of the images (12 to be exact), there is an image of a bell that can be used for any occasion...in my case, I needed it to be wedding bells.  Don't forget, you can purchase this bundle for a 10% savings.

  CreativeInkingHop-ColorYourSeasonFlat-Lori-DSC07561

  • Now, you may be asking "how did she make that skinny Blackberry Bliss border for the Shimmery White Stitched Frame layer?"  Well, I die cut two of the same size Stitched Framelits from Blackberry Bliss, cut each one in half (1 cut vertical...the 2nd cut horizontal), then adhered each half to fit and border the Shimmery White framelit layer.  I needed the matted layer to be skinnier than the next sized Stitched Framelits die, and this was the easiest way that gave me the result I was needing.  **squeal**

CreativeInkingHop-ColorYourSeasonWeddingLeft-Lori-DSC07558

Did you notice the the embossed texture of the So Saffron layer?  OMGosh!!  The amazing Subtle Dynamic Textured Embossing folder left that mark!  Isn't it perfect for this layout?  I also love dimension...especially with a wedding card.  The Stitched Framelits layer is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals, as well as, the wedding bells, sentiment strip (which comes from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set), and the faux Glimmer Enamel Dot (made from a small punched circle using the Gingerbread punch and coloring with Wink of Stella).  Sooo, so pretty!  Creating wedding cards makes me so happy....after all, it is a happy occasion.  :)

TutorialSneakPeek-Collage-August2018

This month's tutorial bundle is based on currently available supplies from Stampin’ Up! and has 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.

My extra project this month features the AHHH-mazing Color Your Season stamp set and coordinating Stitched Seasons Framelits bundle.  Since I can only show you a sneak peek of the project I created in the actual All Star PDF, I'm sharing a 2nd project I made especially for this blog hop using 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!

AllStarHop-Aug-ColorYourSeasons-Lori-DSC07527

Using the largest of the Stitched Framelits, it creates the CUTEST little treat package showing off Berry Burst and a splash of So Saffron.  These would make cute little table favors for any celebration...quick and easy!

AllStarHop-Aug-ColorYourSeasonFramelit-Lori-DSC07530

To create the bottom of the treat package, score 1/2" on either side of the Stitched Framelit.  This makes for a 1" flat bed to nest any mini candy bar or other candies of your choosing.

 

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.

Creative Inking Blog Hop -- Sneak Peek 2018-2019 Stampin’ Up! Catalog

Hello stamper and crafter friends! Welcome to my crafty spot on the Creative Inking Blog Hop for the month of May!  I am super excited to share my creation because I've been Stampin' Dreams for a few days now.  This months theme is to play with our new 2018-2019 Stampin' Up! pre-order goodies!! **squeal** l have to tell you that it was a struggle trying to figure out just which 'toys' to play with first, but I managed to narrow it down.  Do you want to see?  haha...dumb question, I know! :)

CreativeInking-HeaderImage

You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the very talented Sandy Mott's blog. Please be sure to click the 'Next' button (found below) to move along the Creative Inking blog hop. If you get off track at any time, the full line up below will help you move along from blog to blog.

 

GrapefruitG-SoSaff-MossyMeadow


Before choosing which stamp set, dies and other goodies, I decided to choose my color combination.  Doesn't this color combination just look yummy?  I wanted to make sure that I was using at least 1-2 new or returning colors, because let's face it...the regular colors that we have had around for awhile...well, have been around for a while.  :)  My main focus is geared towards a young couple who will be exchanging their vows next month.  I wanted something beautiful, intricate, and pretty darned special.

  • The patterned background comes from the amazing Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper.  WOW!!  There are 8 sheets and each sheet has a TON of these laser-cut patterns...many different designs.  After I cut this one down, I decided to back it with So Saffron and pop it up onto the base using Stampin' Dimensionals.  It measures 3-3/8" x 4-7/8".

CreativeInkingHop-StitchedAllAroundRight-Lori-DSC06520

  • The stamp set is called "Stitched All Around" and it has a pretty cool coordinating set of dies to go along with it.  YEAH!!  The dies are called "Stitched Labels Framelits".  Look at how well the framed die accentuates the laser-cut background...just like a new couple getting married...truly meant to be together.  :)

  CreativeInkingHop-StitchedAllAroundFlat-Lori-DSC06518

  •  The sentiment was inked with Memento Black ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock and die cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits dies set.  I wanted this part to help bring attention to the detailed laser-cut piece....like it really needs it.  HA!

 

CreativeInkingHop-StitchedAllAroundFlatClose-Lori-DSC06517

 

  • I absolutely LOVE the delicacy of this card.  I have planned to pass it onto a lovely couple who has invited us to their wedding next month.  This layout could easy be re-created using their wedding colors, too.  Pretty-pretty-pretty!!

And, there you have it!! I topped it off with some Gold Metallic Thread and Share What You Love Artisan Pearls.  A wedding card isn't complete without pearls, right?!!  :)

 

It is always my passion to inspire you with my papercrafting projects.  I hope I have peaked your excitement to get your dreams stamped out onto paper using some of the products that I have shared with you.  I truly live to inspire!!

OSAT Blog Hop -- Happily Ever After with Cake Soirée

 

OSATBlogHop-2018Header

Good morning stampers and paper crafters!  Welcome to my stop on the One Stamp At a Time (OSAT) Design Team Blog Hop for the month of March!  This months theme is based on "Happily Ever After".  The first thing that comes to mind with this theme is a wedding or a wedding anniversary.  It appears that old man winter has decided to stick around for a while longer...major snow and blizzard storms rolling across the states the last few days.  Now, that is one event that I'm sure will not last to see 'Happily Ever After'...well, I'm hoping, anyway.  LOL!

This may be your first stop on the hop, or you may have hopped over here from the OSAT designer. Either way, in order to view all of the blog participants sharing their wonderful craftiness, click on the next person in line within the list of blogger's posted at the end.

 

OSATHop-HappilyEverAfter-CakeSoiree-Lori-DSC06302


I have had the Cake Soirée Bundle (stamp set and coordinating Sweet Cake Framelits) ever since the beginning of the Occasions catalog, but haven't ever finished a project using it.  GASP!!  Sooo, this month's theme was a way to force me to play, create and finish this beautiful card.  I'm sure I've shared this before, but I'm a country farm girl at heart, and this stamped and clear embossed cake was screaming to be displayed on some Wood Textured Designer Series Paper.


OSATHop-HappilyEverAfter-CakeSoireeFlat-Lori-DSC06315

 

All of the colors are pulled from the flower ensemble nesting on top of the cake (Marina Mist, Berry Burst, Flirty Flamingo).  I love how Stampin' Up! created a coordinating Sweet Soirée Embellishment Kit filled with floral punch outs, velum sprigs, velveteen scalloped trim, and a whole lot more.  The table die was cut from the Champagne Foil Paper offered in the Holiday 2017 catalog....I'm sooo happy that it carried over!  LOVE that foil paper!  The sentiment comes from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set and was Silver embossed onto a strip of Berry Burst cardstock.

Coordinating Cake Soirée Gift Tag

Now, you can't attend a wedding without the gift adorned with a coordinating tag, now can you?!!  The intricate tag die comes from the Sweet Cake Framelits dies set and is dressed up using the same papers as the card...Wood Textured Designer Series Paper, Champagne Foil Paper and Berry Burst cardstock.  The single flower is another punch out from the Sweet Soirée Embellishment Kit and was popped up on a Marina Mist Layering Scallop Circle die. 

 

OSATHop-HappilyEverAfter-CakeSoireeTag-Lori-DSC06311

 

The Cake Soirée Bundle can be found on the Page 12 of the Occasions catalog and with this purchase you would be to choose one FREE Sale-A-Bration reward!  This bundle is perfect for Birthdays, Anniversaries, Weddings, Retirement, or any celebration, really. You'll have to check out all of the other coordinating products in this suite...Embossing Folder, Gable Boxes, Ribbons, etc.

 


 
IT'S SALE-A-BRATION TIME!!
 
Sale-A-Bration is under way and is, by far, the “most wonderful time of the year,” and not just because of the holidays.  Have you received your copy of the new Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs?  If not, you need them!

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop -- February 2018 Wildflower Wishes

Hello and welcome Stampers and Papercrafters!  It's March 1st and it's time for another series of A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop!!  A number of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the world have joined together to share alternative projects using supplies from the February monthly kit named Wildflower Wishes.  Let's go take a peek at what I created for you.


PPHop-HeaderPic

This month's hop features Spring and blooming flowers...Wildflower Wishes.  Now, if only my wish for Spring to arrive and stay for awhile would come true because I'm tired of the bitter cold weather.  How about you?  I really like that the stamp set includes several sentiments that can be paired up...large and bold with a smaller, fancy cursive font.  Check out the envelopes that are printed with a floral liner....sooo pretty!

 

PP-Feb2018-WildflowerWishes-Image


I decided to stamp the "Celebrate" sentiment with VersaMark and then clear emboss onto one of the patterned paper choices.

 

Feb2018-WildflowerWishesShaker-Lori-DSC06284



It's been a while since I had created a shaker card. The large Decorative Label panel is a sticker, so it made it super easy to cut a Window Sheet strip and stick to the back without having to add my own adhesive.

 

PP-Feb2018-WildflowerWishesShaker-Flat-Lori-DSC06296

This kit featured Garden Green and Sahara Sand, but my creation needed a 3rd color, so I added in a strip of Pool Party for the backing of the shaker portion.  The Metallic Sequins are the perfect touch for a little glam and more color.  The rest of the components came with the kit.

 

Feb2018-WildflowerWishesShakerLeft-Lori-DSC06287

 

Coordinating Triangle Chocolate Treat Holder

This little holder is using a strip cut from one of the patterns papers with the kit.  I used the Lots of Labels Framelits to create the little Garden Green flap (matches the large sentiment stickers in the kit...**squeal**)!!  I inked up the sentiment with Garden Green and clear heat embossed onto a strip of Pool Party.  You can't see them, but there are 2 wonderful chocolates wrapped in green foil.  Perfect for this project and so stinkin' adorable!
