Creative Inking Blog Hop — Darling Donkeys Celebrate Sale-A-Bration

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  Today, our wonderful Creative Inking designers have a bundle of projects inspired by the current Sale-A-Bration Season. So, the theme of our blog is "Celebrate Sale-A-Bration".  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 projects.

During this (almost) year-long pandemic, the one diagnosis that has not stopped, or slowed down, are the dreaded uttered words ... "you have Cancer".  A day that one will never forget. Outside of having friends and family by your side to help keep your spirits high during the days of chemo treatments, daily chores around the house and moments of saddness and bleh...there is one image in the Darling Donkeys stamp set that will brighten your day to help kick Cancer to the curb.    

CreativeInkingHop-Darling Donkey Cancer-Lori Stampin Dreams-DSC03980
 
When I first saw the Darling Donkeys stamp set in the Sale-A-Bration brochure, this particular Donkey gave me the brightest vision to create this card.  The cardbase is Sahara Sand with two different patterns of the Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper (also a Sale-A-Bration freebie) layered onto Soft Suede cardstock.  I chose to go outside the traditional rectangular or square layering of the designer paper because I wanted the Darling Donkey to be the focus and not get lost in all the circles.
 
CreativeInkingHop-Darling Donkeys Cancer Close-Lori Stampin Dreams-DSC03988
 
I inked the donkey image with Early Espresso and colored with Stampin' Blends (Crumb Cake–light & dark; Smoky Slate–light & dark; and, Light Soft Suede).  After hand cutting the image, I adhered him to a Vellum Circle die cut from the Layering Circles Dies set that measures 1-7/8" using Stampin' Dimensionals.  I tucked the sentiment inked with Rococo Rose and die cut with a die from the Tasteful Labels Dies set between the donkey and Vellum circle.
 
CreativeInkingHop-Darling Donkeys Cancer Flat-Lori Stampin Dreams-DSC03986
 

The Playful Alphabet Dies were perfect to cut from Sahara Sand cardstock that was adhered to a sheet of Foam Adhesive.  They all rest on the smallest scallop rectangle layer die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies set that was cut from Soft Suede cardstock.


CreativeInkingHop-Darling Donkey Cancer RT-Lori Stampin Dreams-DSC03983
Before setting everything into place, I added a strand of the Braided Linen Trim to hide the seam connecting the two patterned papers.  It was perfect color to compliment the card base and Playful Alphabet letters.  Cancer stinks!  but with good spirits, a strong faith, tons of support from family and friends, and the Darling Donkeys...cancer will not win!

OSAT Blog Hop — Say Hello to Sweet Strawberry

Good morning stampers and paper crafters!  Welcome to January and our 1st 2021 One Stamp At a Time (OSAT) Design Team Blog Hop.  My name is Lori Mueller (stampindreams.com) and I'm excited you've stopped by.  This may be your first stop on the hop, or you may have hopped over here from the previous OSAT designer. Either way, in order to view all of the blog participants sharing their wonderful project(s), click on the next person in line within the list of blogger's posted at the end.  We've got some amazing projects to share with you!

OSAT2020HeaderOur January theme is "Say Hello to", so let me introduce you to my Sweet Strawberry card.  This set comes from the new January-June 2021 Mini catalog and has a coordinating Strawberry Builder Punch.  I'm excited to share with you how I how put this beauty together.

OSATHop-Sweet Strawberry Front-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC03948
The new Berry Delightful Designer Series paper pack is filled with a variety of hand painted berries and vines images that were transformed into the lovely designer crafting paper.  It showcases a large variety of our color palette—displaying soft and bold tones.  The best part is that you can get this paper pack for free (along with a complimentary Berry Blessings stamp set) with a $100 order during Sale-A-Bration.

OSATHop-Sweet Strawberry Flat-Stampin Dreams Lori MuellerDSC03954
I chose to pull out the Garden Green, Daffodil Delight and Real Red with a Sahara Sand card base.  The strawberry images and leaves are a 2-step process...one image is the bolder outline of the fruit and leaf.  The 2nd image is the 'filler' color of the fruit.  I used the Garden Green cardstock as the filler for the leaf with the outline image stamped with Shaded Spruce ink.

OSATHop-Sweet Strawberry Close-Stampin Dreams Lori MuellerDSC03959

To help tone down the busy-ness of the strawberry patterned paper, I lined up 3 strips of Garden Green cardstock to reflect the side of a wagon or a bushel basket.  The stamped strawberries are popped up with dimensionals on Daffodil Delight cardstock that was punched with the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch.  For some texture, I ran them through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine with the Tasteful Textiles Embossing Folder.

OSATHop-Sweet Strawberry Left-Stampin Dreams Lori MuellerDSC03951

The lovely sentiment was inked with Garden Green and accented with a 1/8" strip of Real Red cardstock before set into place with Dimensionals.  For a bit of bling, the strawberries were adorned with the smallest Gold Glitter Enamel Dots in the package.  I have to tell you, while creating this card, I got hungry for strawberries!  YUM!


At this time, you are now ready to hop on over to the next OSAT designers blog.  You won't want to miss traveling on as I know they will have something fun, cute and exciting to share with you.  If you prefer to work your way backwards, you can click your way through the blog list found below.  Either way, be sure to work your way through all of the blogs so you don’t miss a thing!

Creative Inking Blog Hop — Word Wishes Happy New Year 2021

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  Are you ready to boot 2020 out the door?!!!  Me toooo!  Our amazing Creative Inking designers have a bundle of inspirational projects themed as "New Year", "Retire", and anything else that goes along with new beginnings.  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 projects.

CreativeInking-HeaderImage

I can't believe I'm going to say this, but my card share has absolutely NO rubber stamping with ink on it!  Eeeek!  I'm in love with our new Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine that I pulled out several die sets and the Dainty Diamonds Embossing folder to 'do all the talking'. 

CreativeInkingHop-Word Wishes New Year-RT-Lori Stampin Dreams-DSC03804
 
When I think of New Year's, I always think of the evening to dress up with more glam and sparkle.  I love Basic Black with anything shiny...so rich looking.
 
CreativeInkingHop-Word Wishes New Year-Champagne Mist-Lori Stampin Dreams-DSC03798
 
I added an extra layer of Basic Black that is an 1/8" smaller than the base and splattered some Champagne Mist all over the front using the middle sized Water Painters brush.  Just dip the tip into the ink and use the edge of the container to 'flick' the ink.  You can get close for bigger splotches, or pull away for more of a fine dusting of ink.
 
CreativeInkingHop-Word Wishes New Year-Close-Lori Stampin Dreams-DSC03812
 

The Word Wishes dies are a lovely font and dainty.  I wanted them to pop off the page, so I added some Champagne Foil paper to a piece of Adhesive Foam sheet and die cut the words.  Note to self:  since the words are so dainty, it does take a little bit more patience to release them from the die. :)


CreativeInkingHop-Word Wishes New Year-Dies-Lori Stampin Dreams-DSC03806-1
To bring more focus to the Word Wishes sentiment, I added a piece of Vellum cardstock that was embossed with the Dainty Diamonds Embossing Folder.  For a smidgin of color, I die cut the Stitched Stars die from Bumblebee cardstock.  To finish it off with more bling, I scattered some Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels throughout.

Stamp It Blog Hop — So Sentimental Happy New Year

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

December2017-TeamStampItHeader

WAHOOOO!  This month's hop theme is all about the New Year!  I'm certain we can all agree on one thing...2020 is a year that NO ONE will ever forget.  It will stand out in the history books for years (and centuries) to come.

StampItHop-SoSentimentalNewYear2021-Lori-DSC03723

So, to celebrate the new year 2021 coming in, I've created a fun shaker card that starts with a Balmy Blue cardbase.  When I was looking through the catalogs for a sentiment or image to work with to create a new year card, I immediately said "That's it!" when I came across the So Sentimental stamp set.  To bring in the New Year does "call for confetti"...lots of it, too!

StampItHop-SoSentimentalNewYear2021Close-Lori-DSC03731

The shaker frame is created with 2 of the larger scalloped rectangle dies from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies set.  Since these dies can nest inside each other, you can line them up on your paper and run through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine with one pass.  WOOT! 

StampItHop-SoSentimentalNewYear2021-RTFlat-Lori-DSC03733

The background patterned papers are part of the Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper pack.  I love that one side are professional photographs converted to paper and the other side is made up of Silver/White foil patterns.  LOVE it!  The foil side ties in quite nicely with the Gold/Silver/White confetti from the Sequins for Everything pack.  Lots of glam and shine on this card.  To tie it all together, the sentiment was inked with Night of Navy Classic ink onto a strip of Balmy Blue.

Would you like to create this fantastic New Year shaker 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. You fill my cup!

There's a whole line-up of New Year 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.

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'.

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 "Happy Shopper" Starter Kit and save 20% with each purchase.  There really isn't anything to lose...only lots of product to gain!  But, until you make that leap to join my Stampin' Up! family and fill your starter kit with new Annual catalog products.  If you wish to start creating my project, you'll find the ingredients listed below.  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.

Stamp It Blog Hop — Banner Year Thanksgiving

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

October2016-TeamStampIt-Header

This month's hop theme is a season I'm not quite ready for...Thanksgiving Theme!  I know that November falls in our lap tomorrow morning, and we've already had our first snowfall of 3 inches, but it just doesn't seem like Thanksgiving should be right around the corner.  The Banner Year stamp set is filled with a ton of different images that cover almost every holiday within the calendar year.

StampItHop-Banner Year Thanksgiving-Lori-DSC03128
I chose a variety of my favorites to assemble this little simple ensemble.  The Pumpkin Pie panel shows off the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing folder, which embodies the gathering of family and friends.  This was layered at an angle onto a piece of Cajun Craze cardstock and then adhered to the front of Whisper White Thick card base.

StampItHop-Banner Year Thanksgiving Close-Lori-DSC03137

The main focal point is made up of a lot of scrap strips — Plaid Tidings Designer Series paper, Cajun Craze cardstock and Gold Foil paper.  The little squirrel was stamped with Soft Suede and die cut from the larger scalloped circle found in the Tasteful Labels Dies set.

StampItHop-Banner Year Thanksgiving RT-Lori-DSC03130

For a little contrast color, I die cut the banner from Just Jade cardstock and garnished with Linen Thread before setting into place with Stampin' Dimensionals.  The little squirrel was set with Stampin' Dimensionals with the sentiment ink in Cajun Craze onto Whisper White and cut apart for added character.  Sooo cute! A simple layout that provides a lot of warmth of home.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and the proceeds from this class will be going to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation to help fund the work of those searching for a cure.

Stamp It Blog Hop — Falling into Spooky Halloween

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

Sept2016-TeamStampIt

This month's hop theme is a selection that I find easy to create...Halloween & Fall!  They really go hand-in-hand...pumpkins of all sizes and changing colors in the leaves.  The only exception is that the Fall season really isn't all that spooky and scary.  :)

StampItHop-PlayfulHalloweenLT-Lori-DSC02771
I decided to go with a clean and simple card that didn't include any stamping.  Eeeek!  Sometimes, you just gotta let the beautiful designer series paper and framelits do all the talking.  The subtle pattern in this Cajun Craze piece from the Magic In This Night Designer Series paper pack is my favorite and is matted with Blackberry Bliss.

StampItHop-PlayfulHalloweenBoo-Lori-DSC02773

The main focal point is made up of a layer of Metallic Mesh Ribbon, a Blackberry Bliss Ornate Frames die, a Silver Foil Ornate Frames die, and topped with the Playful Alphabet die cut from Black Glitter paper.  The Silver Foil portion was popped up with Black Stampin' Dimensionals.

StampItHop-PlayfulHalloweenFlat-Lori-DSC02774

The silver shine from the Metallic Mesh Ribbon and the glitter from the word 'BOO' is the perfect subtle combination to create a fun, spooky Halloween.

In Good Taste Flag Honoring Men in Blue

Flag-BlueFallenHero

Hello my stamping friends!  Outside of papercrafting and making cards, I have dabbled in all types of crafting projects...even wood crafts.  Crafting with wood is a true labor of love and can speak volumes.  Someone I know hand crafted this wooden flag in recognition of a police officer in our city, who lost his life in the line of duty.  As soon as I saw it, I was inspired to create a handmade card.

InGoodTaste-HonorBlueFlag-Front-Lori-DSC02699

CASEing (Copy And Share Everything) the wood creation, I started with a Basic Black layer that is an 1/8" smaller than a typical A2 card (5-1/2" x 4-1/4") to set the focal design.  The wooden strips were chosen from a pattern in the In Good Taste Designer Series paper pack, making sure that I cut the strips going 'with the grain'.  The Misty Moonlight strip symbolizes and recognizes a fallen hero within our city law enforcement agency.

InGoodTaste-HonorBlueFlag-StarSequins-Lori-DSC02706

It took me a bit to figure out how I was going to replicate the 50 stars.  There are several different die sets that include stars, but they were either too big, or were going to be labor intensive with all the die cutting.  As I was flipping through the new August-December 2020 Mini catalog, I came across the Snowflake Sequins image and happened to notice there were STARS in the mix!  YAY!!  Boy, am I glad this product was a "Returning Fav" from the previous years Holiday catalog!

InGoodTaste-HonorBlueFlag-50StarsSequins-Lori-DSC02707

The Basic Black panel for the stars measures 3-1/4" x 2-1/4".  The Fine Tip Glue Pen and Take Your Pick Tool saved the day to make the process go quickly setting all 50 stars.

InGoodTaste-HonorBlueFlag-FlatBlueRibbon-Lori-DSC02710

After evenly spacing the In Good Taste designer paper and Misty Moonlight strips to the Basic Black panel, I wrapped some Misty Moonlight 1/4" Ribbon around the cardstock strip and tied into a knot.  The whole panel was adhered to a Basic Black cardbase with Stampin' Seal.

InGoodTaste-HonorBlueFlag-LT-Lori-DSC02701

The panel of stars was set in place with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I chose to leave this card without a sentiment, as I felt the whole design spoke for itself.  I will be making several of these to package and send to the family with my sincerest thoughts and prayers.  May God hold them close and bring peace to their hearts.

Want to know how this card came together?  Here's my Facebook Live demonstration I did last Sunday sharing tips and tricks for putting it all together.

 

If you enjoyed this card, 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'.
