Hand Stamped Cards

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.

I've been aching to get my Curvy Christmas stamps inky and the bow branch image was the top of my list to use. 

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

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

Want to know how this card came together?  Here's my Facebook Live demonstration I did today sharing tips and tricks on how it all went together.

 

If you enjoyed this project, I'd love to have you join me each Sunday afternoon at 2:30P (CST) for my Sunday Stampin' Dreams facebook Live demonstrations.  To make sure you receive notifications when I post announcements, events, and creations using all my favorite Stampin' Up! products, click the "Like" and "Follow"buttons on my business page Lori Dreams Stampin'.

Stamp It Blog Hop — 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.

Would you like to create this super cute Thanksgiving 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.

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'.

Stamp It Blog Hop — Itty Bitty Christmas in July

Hello stampers and crafty friends! I'm so happy you are here.  Welcome to our July Stamp It Blog Hop!  You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from one of the other Stamp It members blog...either way, make sure to click the blog next in line to move along the hop and not miss a beat.

July2018-TeamStampIt-Header

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

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

StampItHop-IttyBittyChristmasJuly-GoldFrame-Lori-DSC02517

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

StampItHop-IttyBittyChristmasJuly-FernRT-Lori-DSC02513

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

StampItHop-IttyBittyChristmas-2FlatOpen-Lori-DSC02510

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

Would you like to create these adorable Thinking of You notecards?  I have posted the entire supply list below and made it easy for you to click on any of the images to add to your shopping cart from my online store.  I would be so very grateful to you and your support for shopping with me.  Check out my Dreamers Loyalty Reward Program...I love what I do and very much appreciate YOU.  So, I pay it back and reward my loyal customers with a FREE shopping spree.

There are TWO new animal sets available in the new 2020 Annual catalog that I really wanted...Zany Zebras and Way To Goat, but was limiting myself to only purchase ONE.  ugh!!  They are both fun and whimsical.

CreativeInkingHop-SummerFunZanyZebra-Lori-DSC02500
 
I decided to grab the Zany Zebras stamp set first, partly because they were on the page previous to the Goats.  haha!  My vision was to create some fun birthday cards, as well as, some really cute thank you cards.
 
PPSummerAdd-on-154973G
 
I also fell in love with the new Paper Pumpkin Summer Nights Add-On cards and envelopes pack that was just released.  You have to be a current Paper Pumpkin subscriber to purchase these.  I've seen a sneak peak of the August Paper Pumpkin kit, so I highly recommend you subscribe...especially, so you can get yourself a pack of these beautiful card bases to play with.  You get 24 cardbases and envelopes (8 each of 3 patterns), all for 10 bucks!
 
CreativeInkingHop-SummerFunZanyZebrasClose-Lori-DSC02504


I decided this sentiment could be a subway to the interpretation of "Thank You".  I have it popped up on a couple of punched Medium Daisies for some added fun to the arrangement.

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.

OSAT2020HeaderOur July theme is "Pretty in Pink" and the new 2020-2022 In Color, Magenta Madness sure is purrrrdy!  I have to admit that when I first saw the introduction of this color via a Stampin' Up! video, I was like "ewwww", turning up my nose and telling myself 'that pink is too retro for my creative tastes'.  Well, I'm here to tell you that I'm eating my words right about now.  ACK!

OSATHop-PinkPlayfulAlphabet-Lori-DSC02382
The new Flowers for Every Season Designer Series paper has a number of patterns that include Magenta Madness in it.  I love this one with the smaller flower images...made perfect for the die cut from the Hippo & Friends Die set.  The letters from the Playful Alphabet Dies set fit quite nicely in there, too.  To give the "Happy" die cuts some depth, I added a strip of Magenta Madness cardstock to the back using dimensionals.  I had to use Mini Dimensionals that were trimmed to fit for the centers of the "A" and "P".

OSATHop-PinkPlayfulAlphabet-FlatSupplies-Lori-DSC02389
I chose one of the subtle Bumblebee patterns found in the Flowers for Every Season Designer pack to add a light color that would not clash with the floral pattern.  I love how it sits, kitty-wampus, on the card base front so that there's a bit more white showing at skinny angles versus long rectangles.

OSATHop-PinkPlayfulAlphabet-FlatBirthday-Lori-DSC02392

The "Birthday" sentiment comes from the Well Said stamp set and was inked with Magenta Madness, stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and trimmed down with Paper Snips before setting in place with dimensionals.  This stamp set is loaded with sentiments!  I mean, seriously, there are 51 different images in this 2-case bundle.  There's definitely something for every occasion within this set. 

OSATHop-PinkPlayfulAlphabetLT-Lori-DSC02387

To add a little more color to the overall card layout, I added some balloon die cuts (Hippo & Friends Dies) using coordinating colors from the floral pattern — Just Jade, Poppy Parade and Magenta Madness.  They each have a strand of Linen Thread that was gathered with a bow to make it look like a balloon bouquet.  Lastly, adhere some of the clear gems from the Flowers for Every Season Gems pack with Multipurpose Liquid glue.  I just love the fun and whimsical appearance of this card!  Suitable for any age, don't you think?


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!

Stamp It Blog Hop — Summer Patriotic Themed Tags

Hello stampers and crafty friends! I'm so happy you are here.  Welcome to our Stamp It Blog Hop in June!  You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from one of the other Stamp It members blog...either way, make sure to click the blog next in line to move along the hop and not miss a beat.

Stamp-it-summer-loving-blog-hop

This month's hop share is all about Summer and/or a Patriotic theme.  Considering the 4th of July is exactly 2 weeks from today, I thought I'd better get this idea I've been dreaming about for weeks out onto cardstock.  I'm super excited to share it with you!

StampItHop-PlayfulAlphabetUSAFlatDies-Lori-DSC02304
The 2" x 5" tag base is made up of Crumb Cake cardstock with a layer of In Good Taste designer paper patterns.  I love the idea that the pattern is a photo of a 'real' brick wall and made into designer series paper.  The scalloped design at the top was done by the Delightful Tag Topper punch.

StampItHop-PlayfulAlphabetUSATagU-Lori-DSC02317

There's a brand new product in the Annual catalog that is super fun — Foam Adhesive Sheets!  I used the Playful Alphabet Dies to cut out the individual letters from Real Red, Misty Moonlight and Whisper White cardstock, then die cut each from the Foam Adhesive Sheets.  Peel off the front and stick the corresponding letter to it.  It creates the coolest 3D embellishment.

StampItHop-PlayfulAlphabetUSATagS-Lori-DSC02316

I used the Simply Scored Tool to score an 11" x 1/2" strip of cardstock (Real Red, Misty Moonlight and Whisper White) every 1/4".  Then fan-fold at the score marks to create an accordion piece.  Adhere the ends together using Stampin' Seal+, then center them onto the tag spacing evenly vertically.

StampItHop-PlayfulAlphabetUSATagA-Lori-DSC02315

Peel off the back layer of each foam letter and adhere to a Stitch Stars Die; then adhere to the accordion pin-wheel.  Add a piece of each Misty Moonlight 1/4" Ribbon and Whisper White 1/4" Crinkled Seam Binding to the tag top and finish off with Linen Thread tied into a bow.

Would you like to create this super cute Patriotic Tag?  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.

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  Today our amazing Creative Inking designers have created an inspiring group of projects themed as "New Annual Catalog Favorites".  You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the very talented Colleen Vassos' blog. Please be sure to click the 'Next' button (found below) to move along the Creative Inking blog hop to see all the beautiful projects.

Ever since the new 2020-2022 In Colors were announced with the release of the New Annual Idea Book & Catalog, I have not been able to leave them alone.  They are showing up in every one of my card creations.  Eeeek!  That's a good thing, right?  Well, right now, that is my FAV-or-ite products in the new catalog.  They are scrumptious!
 
CreativeInkingHop-TastefulTouchesHelloRT-Lori-DSC01939
I decided it was time to play with the Tasteful Touches Bundle...versus letting it sit in the last shipment of new goodies.  ACK!  I had already played with the In Good Time Designer Series paper on another project, but it is part of the Suite tied to this stamp set and die bundle, so it was fitting to enjoy them all on one card.
TastefulTouchesBundle-154098G 2020-2022InColorEnamelDots-152480G

I've already made up my mind that the Tasteful Labels Dies are going to be a new FAV and go-to die for sentiments, background layers, focal images...you name it, it's gonna land on a lot of my projects.  Look at the pearl-i-ness of those 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots.  Sooo pretty!  With 20 of each color, you can adorn a good number of projects before running out....quite economical.

CreativeInkingHop-TastefulTouchesHello-Lori-DSC01931
I'm needing to touch base with some dear friends, and the sentiment that was clear embossed with Misty Moonlight ink is the perfect way to do that.  The handwritten sentiment has a few of the letters that look like my handwriting.  Loving the personal touch that will be added to my card without writers cramps!  haha  The leaf branch was inked in Crumb Cake and Bumblebee, but each was the 3rd rendition of ink.  Meaning, I inked the image, stamped off on scrap paper two times, and stamped the 3rd time in place on the Very Vanilla layer.  I just wanted a subtle image so that it would not steal away from the focal point of the sentiment.

CreativeInkingHop-TastefulTouchesHelloFlatClose-LoriDSC01933

The 1/4" Bumblebee Gingham Trim finishes off the seam with the In Good Taste Designer paper; and, adds to the rustic feel from the woodgrain pattern.  It is lovely to work with and slips into a bow very smoothly.  Besides adding the enamel dots throughout the layout, I decided to do a little faux spritzing of Magenta Madness and Misty Moonlight using the marker tip flicked from the Stampin' Write Marker cap.

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. You fill my cup!



 

So with one click you can be on your way to soak in some more inspiration showcasing more "New Annual Catalog Favorites" creations using supplies from any of the current catalog from the rest of the group.  Your next stop on the hop will be with our very creative, Dena Rekow.  I know her creation will be fabulous...she always shares a gorgeous creation (or two) to share with everyone. Click on the 'Next' button and you'll be at your next stop.  Have fun filling your inspiration bucket...don't forget to come back real soon.  :)
