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.

PPX Crew Blog Hop — November Gifts Galore Alternate Treat Package

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 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-Nov Gifts Galore Nugget Box Portrait-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-IMG_E1773

1121_PP_THUMBNAIL[1]


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.

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!

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.

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!

Frightfully CUTE Tombstone Treat Box

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  Halloween is just around the corner, so I have a spooky CUTE project to share with you showcasing a fun product available in the July-December Mini catalog...Tombstone Treat Boxes!  But, no tombstone can be complete without the help of a fun stamp set and coordinating dies...it is Frightfully Cute, that's for sure!

Frightfully Cute Tombstone Treat Box-2 RIP-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04856


These Tombstone Treat Boxes are fantastic to create a little Halloween scene on the front of the box.  My vision was to create the entry to a spooky grave site using the Black Glimmer paper to die cut the fencing.  The lonely tree was die cut from Early Espresso with a single owl die cut from Gray Granite cardstock.  All the dies to create my graveyard come from the Frightful Tags Dies set.
 
Frightfully Cute Tombstone Treat Box-Ink Daubers-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04868
A good, spooky headstone has to include some sort of message.  I used the circle die from the Frightful Tags Dies to cut a Flirty Flamingo moon.  To make it look like a 'Blood Moon', I used Daubers to sponge some Pumpkin Pie ink and a smidgin of Tuxedo Black Memento around the edges.
 
Frightfully Cute Tombstone Treat Box-RIP Blood Moon-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04872
 
The Playful Alphabet dies are the perfect size for my headstone.  I added Basic Gray cardstock to a section of Adhesive Sheets and die cut to add a bit of dimension.  So cool!
 

Frightfully Cute Tombstone Treat Box-OpenCandy-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04867
The best part of this is whole project is adding some chocolates/candies!  Before assembling the top box, I used one of the tag dies from the Frightful Tags Dies to die cut an opening so that the recipient could see the beautifully wrapped candies using multiple selections of the Cute Halloween Designer Series Paper.  To keep the candies from falling out, just add a piece of Window Sheet to the back of the opening.

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.
