Stamp It Blog Hop — Summer Love with a Daisy or Two

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  Summer has officially arrived...and, so has the June 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. Please be sure to click the blog next in line to move along the hop and not miss a beat.

Yesterday was the Summer Solstice...aka The Longest Day of the year.  I've been so frantic trying to get all the details fine tuned for my Alzheimer's fundraiser retreat.  It definitely was a long day, but well worth the weekend fun for me and 24 other papercrafters will be enjoying...doing nothing but playing with stamps, paper and ink.

StampItHop-DaisyLaneNotecardStamps-Lori-DSC00017

So, that brings me to the Daisy Lane stamp set.  I have been having so much fun playing with this set AND the new coordinating Medium Daisy punch that is available in the new Annual catalog.

StampItHop-DaisyLaneNoteCardFlat-Lori-DSC00021

As part of the registration for the retreat, each guest get the supplies to create one Make-n-Take project.  I love the Whisper White Notecards and Envelopes because they render a clean and simple card project.  Now, mind you, clean and simple is not an easy task for me, but this little purple gem came spewing out of my head and made fast action with the Daisy Lane stamps, paper and Gorgeous Grape and Garden Green inks.  Soooo CAHOOOOT!  Even though purple is the color recognized for Alzheimers, this card layout and design can be duplicated in almost every single color that Stampin' Up! has to offer.  Exciting, isn't it?!!

Would you like to create this bundle of sunshine with your very own Daisy Lane stamp set?  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!

For more Summer Lovin' related inspiration, you'll want to 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 — Painted Seasons Sale-A-Bration Coordination

Helloooo stamper friends! Welcome to my blog.  I trust that you are having lots of fun on your travels through the Creative Inking Blog Hop for the month of March!  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.

CreativeInking-HeaderImage

Can you believe there are LESS THAN two weeks to celebrate Sale-A-Bration?!!  We've had a blast dreaming (and stamping) new projects to share with you.  This time we are sharing projects using the Sale-A-Bration Coordination products that compliment the stamp sets.  Let's check out what I have to share with you!!

 

CreativeInkingHop-SABPaintedSeasonNote-Lori-DSC09536

Did you figure that I would share another project using the new Painted Seasons stamp set AND coordinating Painted Seasons Framelits?  I think that means you are getting to know me.  (grin) I can't seem to get enough of this bundle...because the Painted Seasons Designer Series paper is oh-so gorgeous, too!  I have to tell you, it's been a long time since I've used a bundle as often as I've stamped and created with this one. 

CreativeInkingHop-SABPaintedSeasonsFlowers-Lori-DSC09480

I didn't realize it at first, but this Distinktive flower image is really a "succulent" image.  It's a cool image that is pretty no matter what color you ink and stamp with.  I chose Mango Melody for the bunch of flowers with Granny Apple Green leaves and a Poppy Parade sprig.  The wonderful thing that Stampin' Up! included with the framelits is to add more than one die of several of the images.  What a smart thing to help us save time and mileage on our Big Shot.  Thank you so much!

CreativeInkingHop-SABPaintedSeasonsBunch-Lori-DSC09483

I have to tell you that this bundle really lends itself to create many types of projects...greeting cards, 3D treat packages, home decor...all larger projects.  I was needing some quick (little) note cards to send to my customers—so no matter the size, these images are perfect.  The note card measures 2-1/4" x 5-1/8", scored at 2-5/8".  The sentiment comes from the More Than Words stamp set, which was released with the Sale-A-Bration Coordination products.  Until March 31st, you can earn the Painted Seasons stamp set and designer paper free as a bundle with a $100 product purchase.  If you want more of the Painted Seasons paper, you can earn it free with only a $50 product purchase.

If you are needing any stamping supplies and want to know what supplies I have used to create my note cards, I've listed all of the ingredients 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 am sooo appreciative to you for choosing me as your Stampin' Up! demonstrator.

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.

Stamp It Blog Hop -- We Must Celebrate a Spring Fling

 

Feb2015-TeamStampIt-Header

 

Hello-hello stampers and paper crafters! I'm so excited to have you visiting me. Welcome to my spot on the Stamp It Bog Hop for the month of February. For this month's theme, we are all wanting to Spring Fling out of the winter and cold and into something bright and cheery.  Are you with me on that one?  I pretty sure you'd say 'heck yes!!'

If you have been traveling along the Stamp It Group Blog Hop, you may have come here from Tami White's blog.  If this is your very first stop, I want to thank you so much for stopping to visit me. 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 so you see all of the amazing creations.

 

StampItHop-CelebrateYouBrusho-Lori-DSC06264

 

Do you find yourself with lots of leftover strips trimmed from creating card fronts or matting a focal image?  Well, I have just the card for you!  I was looking for an excuse to play with my new Brusho Crystal Colours set (found on page 26 in the Occasions catalog).  But, who needs an excuse, right?!!

 

StampItHop-CelebrateYouBrushoFlat-Lori-DSC06263

 

To add balance, I added a Layered Circle Framelits frame to the center of the card.  The triple-cut "Celebrate" from the "Celebrate You Thinlits" dies makes the colors of Brusho vibrant and POP off the card...in a good way, though!  ;) 

 

StampItHop-CelebrateYouBrushoFlatClose-Lori-DSC06262

Look at all that beautiful color!  I love how the Whisper White strips dried...all the curl and warping really adds to the dimension and texture of the card.

For more Spring Fling themed inspiration, make sure you hop on over to the other Stamp It Group members' blogs to see what projects they have to share.  Thank you so much for stopping by....stop back again real soon.

OSAT Blog Hop -- Don't Go Breaking My Heart

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 February!  This months theme is based on "Don't Go Breaking My Heart".  Am I the only one or do you all have Elton John singing in your head when you read this month's theme?  haha!  I've had the pleasure of watching him in concert on two different occasions and he is one AHHH-mazing entertainer!!

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-Don'tBreakMyHeart-Celebrate-Lori-DSC06227


I did a little research and discovered that the song was released during the month of March, so I can truly say the song title and lyrics had nothing to do with Valentines Day!  Even though I'm continuing to use the "Sure Do Love You" stamp set and "Painted with Love" Designer Series paper, I can honestly say that my creation is not connected to Valentine's Day, either.  Yippee, right?!!  My creation can easily be used for a couple who have recently announced their engagement, or use it as a wedding card, or the announcement of a pregnancy, or whatever the occasion may be to celebrate...just not Valentine's Day.  Teehehe


OSATHop-Don'tBreakMyHeartFlat-Celebrate-Lori-DSC06230

The colors for the card are pulled from the Painted with Love Designer Series paper...Calypso Coral for the card base, Rich Razzleberry for the matted layer to coordinate with the hearts patterned paper, and Gold Foil paper to compliment the tiny heart foils in the patterned paper.

 

OSATHop-Don'tBreakMyHeartCelebrateDie-Lori-DSC06225

The "celebrate" die is from the "Celebrate You" Thinlits Dies that you can get for free with a $100 purchase.  I am sooo excited that this year's Sale-A-Bration event is offering 2 levels of free reward choices.  These dies are worth it...but, truth be told, I love ALL of the dies that Stampin' Up! offers. Sooo worth the money because they never wear out, some dies have multiple uses and features, and they don't take up hardly any room to store!  LOVE!!

 

Coordinating Amazing You Celebration Gift Box

Would you believe me when if I told you that this is the first time making a box using the Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies?  GASP!!  It's true!  I have no idea why I have waited this long...sooo easy and super cute!  NOTE:  The best adhesive to use for assembling the box is our Fast Fuse. That's because it has the strongest hold to keep the sides adhered together no matter what contents you put inside. 

 

OSATHop-Don'tBreakMyHeartBox-Lori-DSC06233

 

The sentiment for this gem comes from another FREE Sale-A-Bration selection...the Amazing You stamp set (free with a $50 product purchase).  Plus, it coordinates very well with the "Celebrate You Thinlits Dies".  This box measures at 5" x 3" and can fit more than your average small candies...definitely a gift card, some small notecards and envelopes, or whatever smaller sized gift you have in mind to celebrate a special occasion.

Alaska Achievers Blog Hop December 2017 -- Picture Perfect Birthday

 

Hello Stampers and friends!!  How was your Christmas holiday?  I hope everyone was able to enjoy a little bit of peace and joy.  I was able to relax a bit, but always had stamping on my mind.  The excitement to share my creation for the Alaskan Achievers blog hop was running through my mind...a lot! I love joining the hop with other Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators from all around the world.  This particular group has achieved the prestigious Stampin' Up! Incentive trip to go on the Alaskan Cruise next July!  **squeal**

 

AlaskaAchieversBlogHop-Header

Each month, we will be hopping together to show you ideas and designs using current Stampin' Up!® products from any of the current catalogs. I am native to Nebraska (U.S.), and I would love to help you, inspire you and answer any questions that help spark that creative vibe going through your veins.  And, no, you don't have to be creative to stamp!!  True statement!

Here is the card that I designed for our hop today!

 

PictPerfBday-SequinPocket-Lori-DSC06018

One of my favorite perks as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is the opportunity to buy from the new upcoming catalogs before the catalogs actually go live for the general public.  I have a mix of products from each of the Occasions catalog and the Sale-A-Bration catalog in this creation...another fun aspect of creativity...doing it 'my way'!  Beware!  There is a lot of Silver goin' on with this creation...shiny and new!!

 

PictPerfBday-SequinPocketFlat-Lori-DSC06021

The sentiment comes from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set (available in the Occasions catalog), but the Designer Series Paper (Bubble & Fizz) you can earn for free with a $50 purchase during the best time of the year....Sale-A-Bration!  There are 3 other new products featured, as well...both from the Occasions catalog.  They are the Silver Embossing Paste, Silver Baker's Twine, and the Scattered Sequins Dynamic Texture Impressions Embossing Folder.

I am sooo thankful for each and everyone you!

Creative Inking Blog Hop -- Occasion & Sale-A-Bration Catalogs Sneak Peeks!!

Hello my stamper and crafter friends!  Thank you so much for stopping to visit me. It's hump day...well, it's really more exciting to say that our Creative Inking designers have lots to share with you.  It's time for our regularly scheduled December blog hop!!  I am *really* excited to stamp and share during this time of year for TWO reasons:  1.  I love creating handmade cards and treat packages to give to friends, co-workers, and family during the Christmas season, and, 2.  the new Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs are in my hands and I got to pre-order and play with the new products before January!  *double-squeal*

CreativeInkingHop-PicPerfBday-OccasSAB-Lori-DSC05989


This card was created with our oldest daughter, Sydney, in mind.  This last Friday, my husband and our immediate family were honored and blessed to witness her graduation ceremony from Nursing school.  She is strong-willed, dedicated, focused, and blessed with so many wonderfully kind attributes that will benefit her to be an amazing nurse to whomever needs her assistance. Sydney is a clean and simple young lady with a little bit of her Momma's country spunk.  Yep!  I'm that proud Momma!

Creative Tips:

  • The majority of the products of this fabulous creation are going to be available for purchase from the upcoming Occasions catalog starting January 3rd.  Unlike the products Suites introduced in the catalog, I did a little mix-n-match of products...just because I like to do that, I guess.  teehehe.  The sentiment comes from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set, but the Designer Series Paper is a specialty paper called "Sweet Soiree".


CreativeInkingHop-PicPerfBday-OccasSABFlat-Lori-DSC05994

  • Do you see all of the shine outlining the flowers on the designer paper?  YUM!  That was my starting point to selecting a Silver Foil Scallop Circle to showcase the sentiment layer.  Another piece that included some silver was the Vellum vine layered onto the Berry Burst half Stitched Circle.  This comes from the Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit...and it's loaded with shiny accents and embellishments for adorning your projects.
  • To top it off...with more Silver, of course...is the new Silver Baker's Twine!  Wrap it around the scalloped/stitched circle focal layer a couple of times and tie if off into a bow, and you've got yourself a quick, easy and fun Congratulatory card.  Hard to believe this sentiment came from "birthday" stamp set, huh?!!

 

Here are a few pics of my sweet and amazing baby girl!!  Yep!  She's my first born AND still my baby girl!  LOVE!!

 

Sydney-NursingDiploma

Sydney's Diploma and Cap and Tassel.  The orange colored tassel is recognition of students earning a Bachelor of Science in Nursing as an RN (Registered Nurse).

Sydney-NursingGroupPhoto
Sydney is the ecstatic one in the middle...beautiful and bright smile...gleaming from ear to ear!

 

Proud, proud moment!!  Thank you for letting me share her special day with you!  

 

It is always my passion to inspire you with my papercrafting projects.  I hope I have peaked your excitement to get your hands on the new Occasions catalog products that I have shared with you.  They will be available for purchase on January 3, 2018, but if you can't wait that long, you can join my Stampin' Up! family and put them in your Starter Kit.  How exciting is that?!!   I am always very, very appreciative of your shopping excursion through my online store, too.

 

So with one click you can be on your way to soak in some more ideas showcasing the new products that we have had fun playing with in our craft havens.  Your next stop on the hop will not disappoint...Dena Rekow...she always has something super cute and fun to share.

Creative Inking Blog Hop -- Stampin' Up! Color Challenge

 

 CreativeInking-HeaderImage


Hello, hello crafty stamper friends!  I'm so happy that you are here to check out our Creative Inking Blog Hop for the month of April!  I'm really excited with this month's hop because we are doing something that I haven't done in a while...work with a Color Challenge!  I am in love with the color choices...don't they look super yummy?!!  Reminds me of a beautiful bucket of Sherbert.  Oh my, and I may have to run to the store and get some when I'm done with this post.  hehe!

ColorChallenge-Swatches

You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the 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.

 

CreativeInkingHop-GorgeousGrungeApril-Lori-DSC04752


Instead of creating a card that was making me hungry for Sherbert, I decided to make a non-traditional graduation card.  I receive a lot of requests to custom make graduation announcements and coordinating Thank You cards in their school colors, so it was a lot of fun to play with new colors for the same occasion.

Creative Tips:

  • Pear Pizzazz sets the stage with the cardbase...mainly because I knew that I want to incorporate a flower of some sort into the focal point area.
  • The Very Vanilla piece was remnant from another project, which worked perfect for me to accent it with the Writing Notes Background stamp.  It was inked in Basic Gray, stamped off once onto scrap paper, then a second stamping onto the Very Vanilla layer.  I was not worried about getting a full image of the stamp; therefore, the reason you see some lighter inked areas.  Kind of like a worn notebook.

  CreativeInkingHop-GorgeousGrungeApril-Lori-DSC04751

  • Now to add color!  I love Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and will miss it dearly.  Yes, it is on the Retirement List.  I used a couple of the images to add the yummy colors of Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo.  Again, I did the first stamping onto scrap paper, then stamped a 2nd time onto the Very Vanilla layer.  I did not want the stamping to overpower the focal point I had in mind.
  • Add the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits diecut in Pear Pizzazz to bring the challenge together.
  • The die cut flower comes from the Succulent Framelits Dies.  That, too, has landed on the Retirement List!  I got a lot of use out of this die set that I know I will not be able to part with it.  Before setting it into place, I added some Copper Metallic Thread to help tie in the strip of Copper foil layered with the Very Vanilla panel.
  • You can't have a graduation card without a sentiment of good wishes!  This one comes from the Suite Sentiments stamp set...again, this set is on the Retirement List, too.  Inked in Soft Suede and backed with some Peekaboo Peach 5/8" Ruched Ribbon and a strip of Flirty Flamingo cardstock.  Set in place with Stampin' Dimensionals.
    .
     

Soooo, what do you think?  Clean, simple, and oh-so pretty.  Don't forget!  If you don't have any of the products I used, you'll want to make sure to submit your order...everything is while supplies last.  I hope you will give it a try.

I'm anxious to jump on this "Designer Series Paper Showcase" to grab my own inspiration from the rest of the group.  You'll want to make sure and hop on over to Linda Bauwin's blog...she is one creative cookie, I tell you. Click on the 'Next' button and you'll be at your next stop.  If you get lost or sidetracked, please come on back and follow the list of participants shown below.  Have fun filling your inspiration bucket...don't forget to come back real soon.  :)

Creative Inking Blog Hop -- It's So Hard To Say Goodbye!

CreativeInking-HeaderImage
Hello Stampers!  I hope the start of your May month has been going well because it's time for the Creative Inking Blog Hop!  Yes, I know, we are just a weeee bit early with the hop this month.  You seeee, there are a bunch of stampers that will be leaving a weeee bit early for the Grand Vacation hosted by Stampin' Up!....the Mediterranean Cruise!  I am over-the-moon ecstatic because this is my very first one!  SQUEAL  My hubby and I will be traveling for a few days in Ireland, then jumping on over to Barcelona for a day of seeing the sites before we join up with a WHOLE bunch of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from across the world on the boat (well, it's really a ship...haha)....a really BIG boat!

You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the talented Sandy Mott's blog. Please be sure to click the 'Next' button to move along the blog hop. If you get off track at any time, the full line up below will help you move along from blog to blog.  So, here is my Springing into Flowers card share.

BannerBanterDottyAnglesGiftBox-Lori-DSC00156

One of my nieces graduated from high school recently and the school colors are orange and black.  Hmmm, I bet you're thinking Halloween, right?  Almost, but we are a little early for that (thank heavens!).  This project features the retiring Banner Banter stamp set bundled with the Banner Punch and Dotted Angles stamp set.

Creative Tips:

  • The Gift Bag Punch Board is a wonderful tool and can assist with whatever size handcrafted gift box you need.  This Tangelo Twist gem started out measuring 10" x 5-1/2" piece and following the guidelines for a 'small' bag.
  • Ink up the Dotted Angles image with Tangelo Twist and stamp along the bottom above the score line forming the bottom of the bag.  I love tone-on-tone stamping (using same ink color as the cardstock color).
  • The Banner Banter stamp set has several banner patterns, plus, a couple of sentiments. All of the images fit the coordinating Banner punch.  I love it when Stampin' Up! matches up products to help me save time.  I don't mind hand cutting images, but I'm usually running short on time in my day...A LOT...and can use all the help I can get.  ;)
  • I added little banners (inked in So Saffron and Tangelo Twist) to the gift bag using Stampin' Up!'s hand stapler.  A clean and simple embellishment without the need for any adhesives..

Fill the gift bag with some jewelry, candy, or (the most desired by any teenager)...that green stuff...cold cash!! 

BannerBanterBox-Lori-DSC00168

This project features the retiring Banner Banter stamp set bundled with the Banner Punch, 1-1/4" and 7/8" Scallop Circle Punches, 1/8" Mini Brads, Cotton Paper Assortment and Tiny Treat Boxes.

Creative Tips:

  • Before assembling the Tiny Treat box, stamp the sentiment along the bottom using White Craft Ink.  NOTE:  Use the Heat Tool on the low setting to set and dry the Craft ink.  Otherwise, set aside for several minutes to ensure it dries well.  You'd hate to have a smudges or smearing of the ink.
  • Ink up the various Banner images using Mint Macaron ink and stamp onto Mint Macaron cardstock (tone-one-tone stamping).  Punch the banners using the Banner punch, add Stampin' Dimensionals and attach to the box.  Accent the banners with Silver stars punched from Silver Glimmer paper using the Confetti Stars Border punch.
  • Wrap some Calypso Coral Thick Baker's Twine around box and tie into a bow.

BannerBanterBoxCottonFlower-Lori-DSC00170

  • Create a 'scrunched' flower using the 1-1/4" and 7/8" Scallop Circle punches and the Watermelon Wonder and Daffodil Delight Cotton paper.  You'll need 8 of the 1-1/4" scallop circles and 6 of the 7/8" scallop circles, both in Watermelon Wonder.  Using the Piercing Tool, stack all of the scallops together and pierce a hole in the center.  Hold them together with a 1/8" Mini Brad.  Scrunch each layer to desired texture.  The Center flower is created with a strip of Daffodil Delight Cotton paper and the fringe scissors.  Roll the fringed strip and attach to the center of the scallop flower with Glue Dots.

Again, you can fill the gift box with some jewelry, candy, or some amazing Ben Franklin's (or George Washington's...haha)!!

BannerBanterThankYou-Lori-DSC00160

Of course, no graduation celebration can go without a lot of 'thanks' and loving hugs.

Creative Tips:

  • Cardbase is 4" x 8" Thick Whisper White, scored at 4" the ink.  No new graduate likes to write a whole lot of words of 'thank' in a card...keep it simple.  I love 4" x 4" cards, plus, keeping the design Clean And Simple (CAS) makes mass production very easy.
  • Stamp the various banners with Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party, and Watermelon Wonder inks.  The Pool Party plain banner image was stamped onto a scrap piece, punched out using the Banner punch, and glued in place using Fast Fuse.  The little touch adds a slight amount of dimension to the overall focal point.
  • Ink up the 'straight pin' image with Sahara Sand and stamp over the banners to make them look like the banners and flying in the wind.
  • Add a thin strip of Pool Party to the bottom portion of the front of the card.
  • Stamp the "Thank You" image with Archival Basic Black ink onto a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock and punch out using the 1/2" Circle punch.  Add it to the card using a Stampin' Dimensional.
  • The final touches are the Whisper White Baker's Twine tied in a bow and added to the middle banner using Liquid Glue; and the single Whisper White button.

So, how is that for a list of Retiring Stampin' Up! products.  These items have been my favorite and go-to products for a lot of my paper crafting...especially, that Banner Banter stamp set and Banner Punch.  Why, oh, why are they retiring??  Get the bundle while you can at a discount.  You can't beat the price!!  For more inspiration using products that are 'Saying Goodbye', you will want to make sure to hop on over to Dena Rekow's blog.  I'm curious to see what retiring products she is going to miss the most.  Click on the 'Next' button and you'll be at your next stop.  If you get lost or sidetracked, please come on back and follow the list of participants shown below.  Have fun filling your inspiration bucket...don't forget to come back real soon.  :)

Custom Class Of 2015 Graduation Card for Paige

It's that time of year, again.  The time when many young 17- and 18-year-olds reach the final day as a high school student...their last path through the classrooms that was filled with so much knowledge to be shared and learned.  The time of year to celebrate the many successes obtained and achieved to reach the grand finale...Graduation.  

ClassOf2015-PaigeW-Lori-9922
This little gem is for a special young lady, Paige, whom we've known since birth; therefore, a special milestone in a young life deserves a special 'over the top' kind of graduation card. Let's check out the card deets:

  • I was soooo happy to see the Class of 2015 single stamp offered in the Occasions Mini catalog.  Granted, it may appear that it is only usable for the year 2015, but that's not true.  Just simply die cut or stamp a different number and pop it up over the '5'.  Or, you can take a panel of coordinating cardstock to cover all of the numbers and add whatever...a sentiment such as "Class Of Hard Knocks", a whole new set of numbers, etc. Don't give up on this stamp set just yet.
  • I love designing a special graduation card to the schools colors.  This schools colors were Red and Black.  The day of graduation, the graduates were dressed in equal number of Red, Black and White graduation robes.  So cool!  Especially, since I designed my card in those same colors!
  • The Whisper White panel was dry embossed with the Stylish Stripes Embossing folder and the help of my trusty (and most fav-or-ite tool) Big Shot. My Big Shot got a 'big' workout...die cut On Film framelits, the Starburst framelits (on the Retirement list), and the Circles Collection framelits.  WHEW!  I love-love-love my Big Shot!
  • The Designer Series 12 x 12 Paper Packs are so handy to add a simple pattern to a somewhat busy and intricate creation. The Neutrals Paper Pack is also on the Retirement list to make room for a new pack with all new patterns to fall in love with.  I decided to pair the patterned paper with a strip of Smoky Slate just to add a bit of subtleness.
  • Now, about the single stamped image.  You can do so many things with this stamp to build pizzazz.  I chose to ink it up in the school colors...Memento Tuxedo Black and Real Red.  The '2015' Banner was inked with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and stamped onto a scrap piece, hand cut (or, what we call "fussy cutting), and then popped up using Stampin' Dimensionals onto the Circle die cut.
  • There are other layers with Stampin' Dimensionals, too.  Those little 'foam elevators' (as one of my customers calls them) really add height and character to any creation.  Take a peek.

ClassOf2015Header-PaigeW-Lori-9958

  • Oh, and what card can leave your craft table without the inside all polished off and ready for your words of wisdom and lovely signature.  Not mine!  When I'm working with a darker cardstock base, it's worth it to add a layer of white or other very light colored cardstock so that your recipient can actually read your handwritten message.

ClassOf2015-TagTalk-PaigeW-Lori-9945

  • I dressed up the inside with some Whisper White and scrap strips of Basic Black and Real Red cardstock.  I just love the Tag Talk stamp set as it renders itself to variety of inking techniques, too.  Plus, there is a coordinating punch to make life quick and easy...the Label Bracket punch.  I'm so happy to see that this stamp set was voted to move onto the new catalog.  Whoop! :)

NOTE:  The stamp set, Class of 2015 and the Starburst Framelits will be retiring at the end of this annual catalog year.  I am really going to miss those framelits.  They add a lot of spunk and character when you feel you need that little sumthin'-sumthin'.  LOVE those framelits.
