This month's blog hop features the new color palette Celebrating In Colors (May 2022) kit.  I'm super excited about this kit because everyone gets to play with the new 2022-2024 In Colors!  They are a wonderful selection of colors...bold, bright and oh-so cheery!

PPXHop-May2022 Celebrating In Colors Orchid Oasis Birthday Card-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05917I started with a Basic White Thick card base that showcases all FIVE In Colors on one card.  There is a mix of cardstock, ink and embellishments on each.  The piece that is a diagonal cut with rounded corner is actually the flap from each of the envelopes that are included in the kit.  I trimmed off the glue part of the flap, added it to a piece of cardstock and die cut using the Deckled Rectangles Dies.  Each die cut shows off a different Embossing Folder before it was adhered to a piece of Vellum cardstock cut at 4-1/8 x 5-3/8.  The texture is the Gingham Embossing Folder, then the whole set of layers was adhered to the card front.  The "HAPPY" sentiment is one of the images in the kit.  This one is inked with Orchid Oasis onto a strip of Basic White cardstock and added to the card front with Dimensionals.  Before I did that, I wrapped some Tahitian Tide Baker's Twine on one end and tied into a bow.  The 2nd sentiment is heat embossed with White onto a strip of Sweet Sorbet and set into place with Dimensionals.  The final touch is the In Color Enamel Dots that coordinate with the Baker's Twine.

PPXHop-May2022 Celebrating In Colors Parakeet Party Birthday Card-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05916
The Tahitian Tide Envelope Flap & Sweet Sorbet cardstock was embossed with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder.  The HAPPY sentiment is inked with Parakeet Party; 2nd sentiment heat embossed onto Starry Sky; and Orchid Oasis Baker's Twine and Enamel Dot.

PPXHop-May2022 Celebrating In Colors Starry Sky Birthday Card-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05920
The Orchid Oasis Envelope Flap & Parakeet Party cardstock was embossed with the Stripes & Splatters 3D Embossing Folder.  The HAPPY sentiment is inked with Starry Sky; 2nd sentiment heat embossed onto Tahitian Tide; and Sweet Sorbet Baker's Twine and Enamel Dot.

PPXHop-May2022 Celebrating In Colors Sweet Sorbet Birthday Card-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05918
The Starry Sky Envelope Flap & Tahitian Tide cardstock was embossed with the Cascading Ruffles 3D Embossing Folder.  The HAPPY sentiment is inked with Sweet Sorbet; 2nd sentiment heat embossed onto Orchid Oasis; and Parakeet Party Baker's Twine and Enamel Dot.

PPXHop-May2022 Celebrating In Colors Tahitian Tide Birthday Card-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05919
The Sweet Sorbet Envelope Flap & Orchid Oasis cardstock was embossed with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder.  The HAPPY sentiment is inked with Tahitian; 2nd sentiment heat embossed onto Parakeet Party; and Starry Sky Baker's Twine and Enamel Dot.

New At SU Blog Hop — No Slim Sayings with Congrats to the Grad Card

 

Blog Button-Hop Through

Hello Friends!!  Welcome to my blog share as a member of the NEW AT SU! Blog hop! We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world who are excited to share our creative paper crafting ideas with you. Today, we have a variety of occasions that we are featuring…a sure way to fill your inspiration bucket.  I'm highlighting the Slim Sayings Bundle found in the 2022 January-June Mini Catalog along with the In Good Taste 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper that is retiring from the Annual catalog.

E7D79C06-B344-4A45-B557-FD736D525DEC

High School graduations are just around the corner!! My favorite part creating a card for the graduate is to use their school colors…always makes it extra special! The background is a subtle piece of In Good Taste Designer Paper that has a bit of natural hue to it that makes this card earthy and vintage. I matted it with Merry Merlot cardstock and added to the Basic White Thick card base (measures 4-1/4 x 11))

7FCDF78E-C623-46B1-A4A0-59F758E2A9A0

You May be pondering on the Chevron die and wondering ’hey, I thought that die was longer than that’! You are correct!! I love when some dies have the allowance to lengthen or shorten to fit a particular creation. The Misty Moonlight strips were popped up with Dimensionals…I love dimension! The sentiment was inked with Misty Moonlight and Merry Merlot markers, stamped onto Basic White and die cut with Layering Circles Dies.  I think this graduate is going to keep this gem for a long time!

Hello my stamping friends!  Welcome to another series of our PPX Crew Monthly Blog Hop!  I'm very happy you have stopped by because our Crew is a group of Stampin' Up!

This month's blog hop features the nature-inspired Beyond The Horizons (March 2022) kit.  This time of year is always an extra special kit because we are celebrating Paper Pumpkin's birthday!  TOOT-TOOT!

Free Stamp Set Image

Not only do we get a special patterned souvenir box that all of our supplies come in, but this year we received a 2nd stamp set!!  This one coordinates with the New Horizons Suite Collection available in the January-June 2022 Mini catalog.  Love it when something like this happens...more bang for my buck!

PPXHop-March2022 Beyond The Horizons Birthday Flat-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05754

This months kit came with amazing envelopes that are patterned on the outside and a different pattern on the inside.  Since the primary neutral color is Basic White, I decided to cut up one of the envelopes and use it as designer series paper.  The Pale Papaya is the larger piece that is matted with Old Olive cardstock; and the inside was the Old Olive skinny later.  Both layers are adhered to an Evening Evergreen card base (4-1/2 x 11, scored at 5-1/2).  Before planting the larger layer, I wrapped some of the beautiful Pale Papaya Grosgrain Ribbon that came with the kit and tied into a bow.

PPXHop-March2022 Beyond The Horizons Birthday Sentiment-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05756

The flower image is set up as a 2-step stamping technique.  The solid piece was stamped once, and the outlined image was inked and stamped twice to show contrast between the two images.  I hand cut the flower, as well as, the Old Olive leaves that are tucked behind.  I popped this floral arrangement with dimensionals and set onto a Stitched So Sweetly Basic White die cut.  The sentiment layer mimics one of the punch out pieces with the kit...Basic White that was punched on each edge using the Banners Pick A Punch.

PPXHop-March2022 Beyond The Horizons Birthday LT-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05751

Finish the card by adding the Stitched So Sweetly focal arrangement to the card front with Dimensionals.  Now looking at the pictures of my card, I realized that I forgot to sprinkle some of the Iridescent Rhinestones that came with the kit on the card.  GEESH!  I'll be fixing that as soon as I finish typing this post.

New At SU Blog Hop — Casing the Annual Catalog with Boughs & Blossoms

Blog Button-Hop Through

Hello Friends!!  Welcome to my blog share as a member of the NEW AT SU! Blog hop! We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world who are excited to share our creative paper crafting ideas with you. Today we are each focusing on inspiration found in the Annual catalog and CASEing it using new stamps, paper and tools that are available in the 2022 January-June Mini Catalog. I'm highlighting the Boughs & Blossoms Bundle along with the Flowering Fields 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper.

Timeless Tropical-CASE Catalog

It didn't take me long to decide to CASE (Copy and Share Everything) this card featuring the Timeless Tropical Bundle on page 21 in the Annual catalog.

NewAtSUHop-CASECatalog- Boughs Blossoms-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05310

My inspiration to feature the Boughs & Blossoms Bundle was based on the two individual flowers and leaves arrangement.  Super quick and easy to recreate!

NewAtSUHop-CASECatalog- Boughs Blossoms Flat-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05317-1

I love to include a bit of texture and dimension in each of my projects!  So, you could sort of say that I enhanced on the card I CASE'd by adding an additional layer of Poppy Parade cardstock that was embossed using the Stripes & Splatters Embossing Folder.  Since it's a mini folder, I did have to run it through my Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine twice.  The flowers were inked with Petal Pink and hand cut with my Paper Snips.  Before adding them to the card front with dimensionals, I threw in a large bow made with the Basic Black Backer's Twine.  This was to compliment the sentiment that was heat embossed with Black Embossing Powder onto a Pool Party strip.  My color palette were selected colors that coordinate with the Flowering Fields 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper pack.  So pretty!

PPX Crew Blog Hop — January Alternate Paper Pumpkin Kisses & Hugs Shaker Heart Card

PPXCrew-BlogHop-Header

Hello my stamping friends!  Welcome to another series of our PPX Crew Monthly Blog Hop!  I'm very happy you have stopped by because our Crew is a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who are collaborating to create alternate projects using the supplies (plus, additional supplies) that come with our monthly Paper Pumpkin kits.  Each month, my Paper Pumpkin subscribers and members of my Stampin' Up! family of demonstrators (Lori's Dream Team) receive exclusive tutorials to beautiful alternate projects created by our PPX Crew.  Now we are creating a 2nd alternate project that is being shared with everyone!

PPXHop-Jan2022 Kisses Hugs Shaker Heart Card-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05241


0122_PP_THUMBNAIL 0122_PP_TOOLKIT_STAMPARTWORK

This month's blog hop features the love-filled Kisses & Hugs (January 2022) kit.  Not very often do I think to use up any of the leftover negative pieces from punched images, they usually get tossed in the recycle bin, but this time the scraps were speaking quite clearly to me.  After all of the bi-fold heart cards were made, there were still goodies left behind to create a fun shaker card!

PPXHop-Jan2022 Kisses Hugs Shaker Heart Card LT-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05246

The background is the largest Scalloped Contour Die cut from Blushing Bride with a layer of Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog.  I threaded the Real Red Faux Linen Ribbon through the loops, tied into a bow and added to the Crumb Cake cardbase with Liquid Glue.

PPXHop-Jan2022 Kisses Hugs Shaker Heart Card Flat Angle-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05250

There was no way I was tossing the negative left behind from the Blushing Bride heart frame!  I adhered a piece of Vellum to the back of the leftover heart and hand cut it out with Paper Snips.  This way I only had to cut the heart once versus twice.  I arranged the two stamp images — X and O — on a clear block to ink with Versa Mark and heat emboss with Gold.  To create the shaker component, I traced the Vellum framed heart onto Basic White cardstock and hand cut with Snips.  The From My Heart Faceted Gems are a perfect color match to the rest of the card — right down to the splash of Gold — and make a good shake-shake-shake noise that will be fun for the recipient to enjoy. 

PPXHop-Jan2022 Kisses Hugs Shaker Heart Card RT-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05243

Finish the card with the word sentiments inked with Real Red onto a strip of Basic White, snipped to size and added to the card front with Stampin' dimensionals.

Stamp It Blog Hop — Sweet Conversations for Valentine's Day

Good morning stampers and crafty friends! I'm so happy you have stopped by.  Welcome to our January 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, I know you're not going to want to miss any of the great inspiration that we have in store for you.

Jan2018-TeamStampIt-Header

Today's creation has been one roaming around in my dreams for days and I'm happy to say that it's time for fruition!  I was inspired from two different sources that was molded into one… a card pictured in a retired Mini Catalog and the lovely Sweet Talk Designer Series paper that is part of the Sweet Talk Suite of products in the new 2022 January-June Mini catalog.

 

StampItHop-Sweet Conversations-Valentine Front-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC05178

Creative Tips:

  • I'm pairing two patterns from the Sweet Talk designer series paper pack papers — one that sets the background on the Basic White Thick cardbase and the other with the Conversation Hearts images that coordinate with the dies found in the Sweet Hearts Dies.  I love that there were several candy conversation images mixed with the coordinating Blushing Bride, Highland Heather and Granny Apple Green colors.  That was my starting point for choosing my color palette for the card.  The bottom half of the Stitched Rectangle die cut is a subtle pattern found in the paper pack, which helped tone down the bolder/busy pattern in the background.

 

StampItHop-Sweet Conversations-Valentine Hearts-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC05172

  • The candy hearts were die cut using coordinating dies from the Sweet Heart Dies set.  I arranged them in a small bouquet, of sorts, and added with double layers of Mini Glue Dots instead of Stampin' Dimensionals.  I love dimension, but didn't want the hearts boldly standing away from the Stitched Rectangle pattern as a regular Dimensional would do.

StampItHop-Sweet Conversations-Valentine Flat LT-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC05183

  • To help with the 'eye candy', I  used the set of 4-hearts die to create the Granny Apple Green strip of cardstock and aligned it with the angle cut of the Sweet Talk designer paper.  For a finishing touch, I accented this piece by wrapping the Whisper White 1/4" Crinkled Seam Binding below the hearts die strip and tied into a bow.  The Stitched Rectangle panel was set in place with Stampin' Dimensionals.

 

StampItHop-Sweet Conversations-Valentine RT-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC05179

The Sweet Conversations sentiment was inked with Highland Heather, stamped onto a strip of Basic White cardstock and accented on each end with Highland Heather banner die cuts that is part of the Sweet Hearts Dies.  The sentiment strip was added to the card front with Dimensionals to deem the card creation complete.

Stampin' Up! Trip Achievers Blog Hop — Harvest Meadows Healing Thoughts

GV Blog Hop Banner-WesternCaribbean

Welcome to the Grand Vacation Trip Achievers Blog Hop for November. The theme for the hop is anything currently offered in our catalogs and we are all excited to share some beautifully handcrafted projects with you!

You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the previous person to me on the list. Please be sure to click the person after me 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.  I was inspired to create my card share from two different sources… a card pictured in the Mini Catalog (Page 54) and a non-Stampin’ Up’ card makers blog.

Harvest Meadows Sympathy-Watercolor RT-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC05074

Creative Tips:

  • I am using a mix of Stampin' Up!'s new papers listed with the Harvest Meadow Suite.  The Fall season is my utmost favorite season and the Harvest Meadow designer papers really hit the mark with a lovely combination of colors and patterns. I really love the Cork Specialty paper! I am still in awe how a paper can replicate the actual feel and texture of a sheet real cork!  I threw in a couple layers of Vellum cardstock to soften the patterns; and, die cut all layers with the same rounded Basic Borders Die.

Harvest Meadows Sympathy-Watercolor Supplies-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC05071

  • Bring on the watercolor!!  Instead of using the Harvest Dies to die cut straight from cardstock or designer paper, I decided to watercolor pieces of Basic White cardstock with Cajun Craze, Bumblebee and Soft Succulent ink.

Harvest Meadows Sympathy-Watercolor Close-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC05084

  • Once the paper had dried, dies run through my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine, I used my Soft Suede Stampin' Write marker to splatter ink onto the Fall elements. They were arranged and set in place with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Harvest Meadows Sympathy-Watercolor LT-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC05075

The sentiment comes from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set, inked with Soft Suede and stamped onto Basic White cardstock. Once die cut with label die from Harvest Dies set, it was added to the card front with Dimensionals.

Thanks for taking part in our blog hop. With so many amazing ideas and inspiration filled with amazing projects throughout the hop, you won't want to miss a single one!

PPX Crew Blog Hop — October Peaceful Christmas Alternate Holiday Cheer

PPXCrew-BlogHop-Header

Hello my stamping friends!  Welcome to another series of our PPX Crew Monthly Blog Hop!  I'm very happy for your visit here.  Our Crew is a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who are collaborating to create alternate projects using the supplies (plus, additional supplies) that come with our monthly Paper Pumpkin kits.  Each month, my Paper Pumpkin subscribers and members of my Stampin' Up! family of demonstrators receive exclusive tutorials to beautiful alternate projects created by our PPX Crew.  Well, now we are creating a 2nd alternate project that is being shared with everyone!

PPXHop-Oct Peaceful Christmas Step Card-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05030

1021_PP_THUMBNAIL

1021_PP_TOOLKIT_STAMPARTWORK

This month's blog hop features the beautiful Peaceful Christmas (October 2021) kit.  My project features a fun-fold technique called the Stair-step fold, which was inspired by some of the leftover element pieces I had saved away in the kit.  I'm also using a couple of stamp images from the set that were not used as part of the original card designs.

PPXHop-Oct Peaceful Christmas Step Card RT-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05031

Even though there were Shaded Spruce card bases included in the kit, I chose to use regular Shaded Spruce cardstock as I needed a base that was not pre-scored.  The Buffalo Check paper were leftover strips that I matted with Silver Foil Paper.  To highlight the card front, I cut one half of the Basic Gray festive cardbases down to 3-1/4 x 4 and matted with Silver Foil paper.  To compliment the card front, I cut the Basic Gray woodgrain element in half and layered on the 'front step' of the card.

PPXHop-Oct Peaceful Christmas Step Card Open-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05035

To create the Stair-step feature of your card, the Shaded Spruce cardbase is cut 1-inch inside of each long end starting at the 1-inch mark from one short end through to the 5-1/4" mark.  Then, take your scoring tool on your trimmer and score at 1", 2", 4-1/4" and 5-1/4".  The only section that is scored at the 4-1/4" mark is the section in the middle (do not score on the 1" side strips at 4-1/4".   The other score lines should only fall on the 1" strip on each long end side.  Score and burnish the folds to create a 'stair step' effect.  I inked the row of evergreen trees with Shaded Spruce ink (included with kit), stamped onto a piece of Basic White cardstock (3-1/4 x 4), and set in place to finish the inside of the card.

PPXHop-Oct Peaceful Christmas Step Card LT-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05033

I used the Fancy Label Punch for the Peaceful Christmas sentiment, which was very similar to size and shape of the sentiment tags that were included with the kit.  The red banner element was adhered to the back of the sentiment tag and added to the card front using Dimensionals.  The final dressing of the card includes a glittering Enamel Gem and a little bow made from the Real Red Baker's Twine—both included in the kit.

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

PPX Crew Blog Hop — September Haunts & Harvest Alternate Fall Leaves Birthday

PPXCrew-BlogHop-Header

Hello my stamping friends!  Welcome to our first PPX Crew Monthly Blog Hop!  I am so excited you are here.  Our Crew is a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who are collaborating to create alternate projects using the supplies (plus, additional supplies) that come with each monthly Paper Pumpkin kit.  Each month, my Paper Pumpkin subscribers and members of my Stampin' Up! family of demonstrators receive exclusive tutorials to beautiful alternate projects created by our PPX Crew.  Well, now we are creating a 2nd alternate project that is being shared with everyone!

PPXHop-Sept Haunts Harvest Fall Blessing RT-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC04921

 

0921_PP_THUMBNAIL
0921_PP_TOOLKIT_STAMPARTWORK

 

This month's blog hop features the lovely Haunts & Harvest (September 2021) kit.  I chose to focus on the stamp set included with the kit and the coordinating Harvest Meadows Designer Series Paper because the kits treat packages are so stinking cute that I have assembled them per the instructions and will be handing out to colleagues and students.

 

PPXHop-Sept Haunts Harvest Fall Blessing Timber EF-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC04925

The Crumb Cake cardbase has one of the Misty Moonlight patterns from the Harvest Meadows Designer Series paper pack with a strip of Misty Moonlight cardstock on the right.  The Very Vanilla layer was first dry embossed using the Timber 3D Embossing Folder, then die cut the center with a Stitched Rectangles Die (2-1/8 x 3-1/2).

PPXHop-Sept Haunts Harvest Fall Blessing Close Ribbon-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC04927

For a bit of Fall color, I bordered the left edge of the Timber embossed layer with a strip of Bumblebee cardstock.  Garnish the open frame area with a piece of 3/8 Diamond Weave Ribbon finished off with Linen Thread tied into a bow.  Adhere to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.

PPXHop-Sept Haunts Harvest Fall Blessing Inks-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC04919

 

Adhere the Stitched Rectangle die cut directly to the card front.  Ink and stamp the large leaf image from the Haunts & Harvest Paper Pumpkin kit with Pumpkin Pie and Bumblebee, adding the veins with Soft Suede ink.  The small leaf was inked and stamped using Soft Succulent, Poppy Parade and Pale Papaya ink pads.  All of the leaves were fussy cut (hand cut using Paper Snips) and added to the center using Multipurpose Liquid glue with exception to the Bumblebee large leaf.  It was added with a Dimensional.  The sentiment was inked with Misty Moonlight and stamped onto a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock and added to the card front with Dimensionals.

 

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

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

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

CreativeInking-HeaderImage

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

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

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

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

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

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