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.

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.

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

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.

1121_PP_TOOLKIT_STAMPARTWORK[1]

This month's blog hop features the super cute Gifts Galore (November 2021) kit.  'Tis the season for gift giving, so my project features our Acetate Card Boxes that are not just for filling with handmade cards.  They're perfect for filling with a mix of chocolates, too.  I have used all of the supplies that came with my kit, so I'm going to give several images from the stamp set lots of inky love.

PPXHop-Nov Gifts Galore Nugget Box Left-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-IMG_1761

My list of treat packages needed is quite long...lots of teachers, co-workers and Stampin' Up! family members to create something special for.  I really love the color palette that is part of the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series paper—Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent, Cherry Cobbler and Sahara Sand make it easy to create gifts for any gender.

PPXHop-Nov Gifts Galore Nugget Box Open-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-IMG_1766
To get the most treat packages with one package of Acetate Card Boxes, I cut them in half and created a new topper for the open end.  The other end of the box will be secured with the tabs and flap enclosure.  Instead of leaving the Evening Evergreen topper all straight and proper, I fancied up the front flap using the scalloped Basic Border Dies.  I then matched it up with the same die cut with a pretty pattern of designer paper.  Fill it with some designer paper wrapped Hershey Nuggets...and, a fun gift card to boot!

PPXHop-Nov Gifts Galore Nugget Box Back-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-IMG_1765

The Evening Evergreen layer is adhered to the inside of the Acetate Box, so I added a piece of Designer Series Paper to the outside back of the box using Tear & Tape.  This is to hide the adhesive used to hold the Evening Evergreen piece to the inside of the box.

PPXHop-Nov Gifts Galore Nugget Box FlatRT-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-IMG_1763
To hold all the goodies in the box, wrap some Soft Succulent Open Weave ribbon around the flap area and tie in a know.  Stamp the gift image with Cherry Cobbler and Soft Succulent ink, fussy cut and adhere to the front with Dimensionals.  I did ink the ribbon image in the same coordinating colors as the gift package image, fussy cut them and adhered to the top of each gift.  The sentiment was inked with Evening Evergreen, fussy cut and added to the gift arrangement using a mix of Dimensionals and Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

PPX Crew Blog Hop — October Peaceful Christmas Alternate Holiday Cheer

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.

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!

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!

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop — Winter Gifts Holiday Banner

Hello Stampers and Papercrafters! and, welcome to our monthly A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop!!   My name is Lori Mueller and I'm part of a team of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the world that have joined together to share alternative projects using supplies from the November Paper Pumpkin kit.PPHop-HeaderGraphicThis month's kit (Winter Gifts) is filled with supplies to create 20 oversized gift tags (5 each of 4 different designs.  And, boy, are they super cute!


Every month, the kits include enough supplies to create the designed projects. And, that is what I primarily focus on using when creating my alternate project to share with you.  With the exception of not adding the ribbon tails to each tag, I followed the instructions to create the tags. 

PPHop-WinterGiftsTagBanner-Lori-DSC00684

To make them into a banner, I popped each tag up on an Early Espresso Nested Stitched die.  I used the largest die in the set.  I loved the designed tags in the kit that I thought it would be super easy to create this adorable banner that can be hung from an office door, adorning the front of a desk, or added to any wall as festive decoration.

PPHop-WinterGiftsTagsBanner-MerryXmas-Lori-DSC00685

When coordinating home decor, it is a pretty strong rule that you really need the arrangement done up with an odd number.  Since there were only 4 different tag designs, I had to come up with a 5th banner pennant.  So, I 'borrowed' the sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set and stamped it with Poppy Parade ink onto a Whisper White die cut from the Roses Dies (part of the Christmastime Is Here suite).  The patterned paper is from the Wrapped in Plaid designer series paper pack.  It coordinates perfectly with the kits color scheme – Shaded Spruce.

To get more inspiration for alternative ideas creating with the November Paper Pumpkin kit, make sure you visit the other A Paper Pumpkin Thing Group members' blogs to see what projects they have created to share with you.  I'll be on your heals to soak in the new ideas and inspiration.

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop — On My Mind

Hello Stampers and Papercrafters! and, welcome to our monthly A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop!!   My name is Lori Mueller and I'm part of a team of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the world that have joined together to share alternative projects using supplies from the July Paper Pumpkin kit.PPHop-HeaderGraphicThis month's kit is inspired by THREE different product suites found in the Annual catalog:  Come Sail Away, Woven Threads and Garden Love.  Based on these wonderful kit projects, I couldn't tell you which one is my favorite.  Although, I will admit the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper is my ultimate favorite pack, right now.  The rustic colors and scratchy, aztech-y (totally made up that word) patterns really speak to me.

07.19_PP_FACEBOOK
Every month, the kits include enough supplies to create the designed projects. And, that is what I primarily focus on using on my alternate projects to share with you, but this month, I was more drawn to using only the stamp set.  I loved the designed card projects in the kit that I did not want to chop up any of the card bases, envelopes, or steal the dies and embellishments to create an alternative.

PPThingHop-OnMyMindBirthday-Lori-DSC00963
I love to create the non-typical sized card.  Yes, I have to be different, but if truth be told, I had a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock that was in my scrap folder measuring 8-1/2" x 4-1/4" — perfect for a square card!

 

07.19_TOOLKIT_STAMPARTWORK

I'm certain the stamp set included in the kit is going to get a lot of attention from me to create a variety of cards.  I mean, look at those lovely sentiments!  Very versatile and has "all occasion" written all over them. :)  A definite keeper, plus, a bonus from the kits — you build a small collection of stamp sets and ink spots that doesn't break the bank and will give you endless hours of creations.

PPThingHop-OnMyMindCardFlat-Lori-DSC00970

The instructions sheet that comes in the kit always lists the coordinating colors that go with the included supplies.  Since the cards were featuring three different product suites, there were a lot of colors to choose from, but I managed to narrow down to Terracotta Tile, Mint Macaron, and Seaside Spray to stamp the medallion.  Someone might ask if I used the Stamparatus to stamp the medallion image so evenly...my answer would be 'not this time'.  Since the stamp sets are photopolymer, I felt pretty comfortable stamping the image with my old eyeballs and a pair of 'cheater' glasses.  LOL!

 


On My Mind Dove Candy Holder

I'm on a mission to use up some Sahara Sand cardstock scraps, so this 1-1/2" x 4-3/4" strip was my inspiration to hold a nice piece of Dove chocolate.  I scored it at 2-1/8 and 2-5/8" and fancied up the top using the Delightful Tag Topper punch.

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop — Hugs from Shelli Alternatives

Hello Stampers and Papercrafters!  and, welcome to our monthly A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop!!   My name is Lori Mueller and I'm part of a team of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the world that have joined together to share alternative projects using supplies from the May Paper Pumpkin kit.PPHop-HeaderGraphicThis month's kit is inspired by Stampin' Up!'s Co-Founder, Shelli Gardner!  **squeal**   I have always admired her stamping style because it is right up my alley...country, vintage, and rustic...all piled into one little box.  The name of this kit is very fitting, too..."Hugs from Shelli" because she is such a sweet, genuine woman.  I was sooo excited to see the stamp set and start playing with the new images.  

May2019-PPCoverPic

Every month, the kits include enough supplies to create the designed projects. This month was no different...all subscribers get to create 12 cards (3 each of 4 designs) that come with coordinating envelopes that are lined with designer paper.  The whole ensemble is so down-to-earth using a combination of colors that mix well...Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Petal Pink, Pool Party, Pretty Peacock, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla.

PPHop-HugsShelliThankYouRt-Lori-DSC09884
I'm pretty sure the floral cardbase is my favorite pattern of the bunch, so I cut it down to help me dress up a 4" x 4" Crumb Cake cardbase.  The original cards are 3-1/2" x 5", so I cut the card base in half at the 3-1/2" score line.  (HINT:  don't toss the back part of the card, we'll use it in a bit).  The floral piece was trimmed from 5" to 3-5/8".

May2019-PPSupplyPic

Look at all of those supplies you get with this kit!  DANG!!  You can't beat a $20 kit in the mail when you get a full set of stamps, ink and two types of adhesives!

PPHop-HugsShelliThankYou-Lori-DSC09882

The ink spot included in the kit is Early Espresso, so I couldn't help myself but add a little Copper Foil trim using the Flourish Thinlits Dies.  To compliment the foil trim, the sentiment was inked with VersaMark onto Old Olive and heat set with the Heat Tool.  I added a fun trick with the sentiment inked with Early Espresso onto Petal Pink cardstock...add the strip to the Old Olive piece and die cut both sentiments together using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  It helps add a little contrast to the sentiment message.

 


Hugs from Shelli "Hello" Card

Since I cut one of the card bases in half, it left me with the back section of the card (plain Very Vanilla) to design another card.  We'll get a 2-for-1 set of cards with one card base!  YAY!  The floral print is the leftover from cutting down the front part of the cardbase...so, technically, you could say this card is filled with leftovers.

PPHop-HugsShelli-HelloCard-Lori-DSC09874

FUN TIP: Before tossing the negative to any edgelits-type of die cut, check to see if it could fit with another project.  That's what I did with the Copper Foil scalloped flourish die...fits perfect all lined up with the floral print, don't you think?!!

PPHop-HugsShelli-HelloCardFlat-Lori-DSC09880

The sentiment was inked with VersaMark, stamped directly on the Very Vanilla layer, covered with Copper Embossing powder and set with the Heat Tool.  I used one of the new Stitched Nested Labels Dies to cut out the sentiment and then pop it up using Stampin' Dimensionals to set back in place.
