Stamp It Blog Hop — Birthday Sale-A-Bration with Someone Special

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

Is your stash of Birthday cards filled to the gills or depleted and in desperate need of replenishing?  Mine is parched, so I held a stamp class focusing on what we all seem to run out of the fastest...Birthday cards!  Sooo many friends, family, colleagues and, let's not forget the littles in our lives, have had a birthday in the last couple months.  I have to say, we made some super CUTE cards using the Special Someone stamp set and the brand new coordinating Special Day Dies.

StampItHop-SpecialSomeoneBirthdayRt-Lori-DSC00989

I chose to feature the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series paper pack and focus on the color palette designed for that pack.  The fun color combination of Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, Bermuda Bay, and Mango Melody is fitting for birthday cards of any age.  I chose the striped pattern because of the line structure that compliments the Whisper White panel embossed with the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder.  To make it fun, I tilted the two layers in a non-uniformed fashion going in opposite directions.

StampItHop-SpecialSomeoneBirthdayFlatClose-Lori-DSC00992

The star of the greeting is that stinkin' cute MOUSE!  I've caught lots of those little buggars in my garage and would never think to find myself referring to one as "cute"!  He's a 2-step process.  The 'fur' image is stamped in Early Espresso, then the 'filler' image is inked in Crumb Cake.  For a shaded (lighter) effect, stamp the filler image once on scrap paper then save the 2nd rendition stamping to fill in the body of the mouse.  The Stitched So Sweetly Dies are ahhh-mazing and a must-have tool for future creations.

StampItHop-SpecialSomeoneBirthdayLeft-Lori-DSC00986

The sentiment is inked with Bermuda Bay and popped up with dimensionals...same as the Stitched So Sweetly die garnished with the Metallic Baker's Twine (Sale-A-Bration freebie that is completely sold out).  To add a sprinkling of complimentary color, I added some of those sequins in the Combo pack using teeny-tiny dollops of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Click on the Live video for a full tutorial and an altered version to my original.

Creative Inking Blog Hop — Product Coordination for a Special Someone

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  Welcome-welcome to our amazing Creative Inking Blog Hop!  You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the very talented Bj Peters' blog. Please be sure to click the 'Next' button (found below) to move along the Creative Inking blog hop to see all the wonderful creations.

CreativeInking-HeaderImage

I've been having sooo much fun playing with all of the Sale-A-Bration items offered (stamps, dies, papers and accessories.  How 'bout you?!!  They are all super cute and fun!  Especially, the Special Someone stamp set!  Those little critters do not come with an age requirement, so go ahead and include them on Birthday cards of all ages.  What's even more exciting is that Stampin' Up! is offering a set of dies that coordinates with those critters!  So awesome, right?  No need to handcut...simply stamp and die cut!  Perfect timing, because our theme this month is to showcase a new Coordination product that go with the Sale-A-Bration stamps.
 
CreativeInkingHop-SpecialSomeoneSABCoordFront-Lori-DSC00954

My stash of Thank You cards is pretty slim...and, I was struggling to decide which critter to add to my card, so I paired up all three to help proclaim my heartfelt thanks 3-fold.  I love the subtle patterns of designer paper in the Birthday Bonanza paper pack because I did not want it to steal away from the cuteness of my critters. The various sizes of Layering Circles was designed to compliment the size of each critter...all popped up on a strip of Coastal Cabana accented with a couple strands of baker's twine (part of the Metallic Baker's Twine & Sequins Combo pack...now sold out).

CreativeInkingHop-SpecialSomeoneSABCoord-Flat-LoriDSC00961

Each critter from the Special Someone stamp set is set up as a 2-step stamp process...the fur is a darker shade and the filler of the fur is a lighter color that is stamped off before stamping onto the critter.  For instance, the raccoon is first stamped with Basic Gray and the filler of the fur is Smoky Slate that has been stamped off onto scrap paper before stamping onto the raccoon's fur image. The little flowers were stamped with Basic Gray and filled in with Grapefruit Grove, Coastal Cabana and Mango Melody.  Everything was die cut using the Coordination Special Day Dies and popped up using Stampin' Dimensionals.

CreativeInkingHop-SpecialSomeoneSABCoord-Left-Lori-DSC00959


The "thank you" sentiment is part of the Special Someone set inked in Basic Gray for two panels and Coastal Cabana for the middle one.  I love how the sentiments tier down based on the size of the circles.  But, what I love even more is how quickly this card came together...all because of the wonderful coordinating Special Day Dies!  Thank you, Stampin' Up! You can see all of the new products HERE.

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 January-June Mini products you'll find the ingredients listed below, and 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.

Last Minute From My Heart Valentine Heart Cookie Tags

20200103_JANJUN20_en-US_Page_08

Nothing like waiting until the last minute to whip up 16 adorable Valentine packages for a group of teachers, but that's how my list of things to do has been rolling out.  I'm sooo thankful that I had all of the supplies to create these quick and easy tags to dress up the specialty heart cookies I found shopping in a local bulk store.

FromMyHeart-HeartCookieTeacher-Lori

Everything to make these tags are part of the From My Heart Suite (page 9 in January-June Mini Catalog)—from the stamps to accessories and everything in between.  I started out by putting the cookies in our Clear Envelopes to make it easy for delivery (and, less mess) because they come with a self-adhesive strip.  The rest came together uber fast...check out the instructions:

  1. Using straight-edge Heart punch from the pack, punch out metallic hearts from the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper pack
  2. Ink the scallop heart image from the Heartfelt stamp set in Real Red and Flirty Flamingo and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock.
  3. Punch out stamped scallop hearts with coordinating scallop Heart punch.
  4. Adhere the metallic Heart to the stamped scallop heart
  5. Add a strip of Snail to the Real Red and Flirty Flamingo Heart Doilies
  6. Add a piece of Real Red 3/8" Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon to the Flirty Flamingo Doily; and, a double layer of Whisper White 1/4" Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon to the Real Red Doily
  7. Adhere the metallic/stamped hearts to the Doilies using Stampin' Dimensionals
  8. Add the decorated Heart Doilies to the Clear Envelope centering over the cookie using Snail or Tear and Tape

Yummy treats delivered with a big smile and warm heart!  I love to see the recipients expression when they receive a handmade goodie from me.

FromMyHeart-HeartCookiesTagBatch1-Lori-DSC00904

This batch of decorated cookies is going to a special group of ladies that I'll be meeting with on Sunday — members of Lori's Dream Team.  Instead of the Metallic Designer paper hearts, I punched out Whisper White Hearts and stamped the Heartfelt sentiment in Real Red.  Since there was no shiny papers used, I added From My Heart Faceted Gems with Multipurpose Liquid glue.  Oh, and the best way to pick up those little 'gems' is with a Take Your Pick Tool...removes all frustration and makes picking them up and setting them into position sooo much easier!

20200103_JANJUN20_en-US_Page_09-Lori

TIP:  If you find that you LOVE all of the products in a particular suite, did you know that you can order every single item in that Suite with one order number?  Yeppers!  Let your fingers do the walkin' with one number

OSAT Blog Hop — Sixteen Candles with Forever Blossoms

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

OSATBlogHop-2018Header

This month's theme is Sixteen Candles (aka...anything birthday related).  I'm desperately needing to get some birthday cards made and sent — my stock has been depleted for a while, so this couldn't be better timing to check a box on my "to-do" list!

OSATHop-ForeverBlossomsBirthdayFront-Lori-DSC00885

The Forever Blossoms stamp set and coordinating Cherry Blossoms Dies has been sitting nearby waiting for me to add some ink.  There are a handful of sentiments included in the set, but none of them hit the 'birthday' theme.  So, I pulled out one of my favorite sentiment sets from the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog, Peaceful Moments.  It covers quite a few different occasions...a must-have stamp set!

OSATHop-ForeverBlossomsBirthday-Flat-Lori-DSC00895

I love the simplicity of the design layout...although, there are a few intricate details that make it appear more complicated.  There is only one layer added to the Whisper White Thick cardstock base...a strip of Parisian Blossoms Designer Series Paper for an added touch of elegance and a piece of Whisper White cardstock embossed with the Subtles 3D Embossing folder.  I did pop up the embossed layer for dimension and trimmed the right edge with two Petal Pink fancy edging die cuts from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits set. The leaves and flowers were inked with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Old Olive (Dark & Light) and Petal Pink (Dark & Light) Stampin' Blends markers.

OSATHop-ForeverBlossomsBirthday-Left-Lori-DSC00890

For a contrast color, I threw in a Cherry Cobbler piece of cardstock embossed with the new Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder topped with a stretch of Petal Pink 1/4" Metallic-Edge Ribbon.  The sentiment inked with Memento Tuxedo Black and stamped onto a Stitched Oval die.  The Champagne Rhinestones give it the final elegant touch.


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 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 — Heartfelt Valentine

Hello stampers and crafty friends! 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 and not miss a beat.

Making gifts for a group of teachers I work with has been one of my favorite crafting sessions.  I know they can receive gifts from parents, students and fellow teachers, too.  And, most times there is chocolate connected.  Soooo, to help them curb their chocolate collection, I found these awesome heart-shaped bath bombs at my local grocery store that are perfect for gift-giving

StampItHop-HeartfeltBathBombGift-Lori-DSC00820
The From My Heart Suite of products is the highlight for the gift tag. I love the variety of heart-shaped images and sentiments from the Heartfelt stamp set that can be used to layer, add dimension and show off the colors of Real Red and Flirty Flamingo ink.  The ensemble is dressed up with one of the Flirty Flamingo Heart Doilies.  The From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper has a mix of foil papers and muted patterns.  There is a mix of small and large patterns that compliment each other well.  Can't have a tag without bling!  The From My Heart Faceted Gems are easy to attach with a little droplet of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  They come in 3 different sizes and and 3 colors and are a bit smaller than a Mini Glue Dot. 

These bath bombs are too large to fit into the Heart Foil Tins, so the next best packaging that will present a beautiful visual are the 3" x 9" Printed Gusseted Cellophane Bags.  Lay the bath bomb on a bed of shredded filler paper and slip right in. Finish the top with Real Red 3/8" Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon and tie on the tag with Whisper White Baker's Twine.  Check out the 'how to' live video I created for this project.  Enjoy!

 

Would you like to create this super cute Heartfelt Bath Bomb project?  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 appreciation YOU.  So, I pay it back and reward my loyal customers with a FREE shopping spree. You fill my cup!

For more Annual and January-June 2020 Mini catalog favorites, you'll want to make sure you hop on over to the next Stamp It Group members blogs to see what amazing creations they have to share.  Thank you so much for stopping by....stop back again real soon.

Creative Inking Blog Hop — Celebrating Sale-A-Bration with Sending You Thoughts

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  Welcome-welcome to another episode of our Creative Inking Blog Hop!  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 wonderful creations.

Well, January has opened up it's arms and blessed us with bitter cold temps, blustery winds, snow and ended with freezing drizzle that has made all of our city streets a treacherous ice skating rink!  YIKES!! 

Winter is the best time of year for a couple of reasons.  One, it forces me to stay inside and craft to my hearts content; and two, it's Sale-A-Bration (Stampin' Up!'s best time of year)!!  So, I'm celebrating Sale-A-Bration by showing off one of the most versatile stamp sets you can earn free — Sending You Thoughts.  It's filled with 9 sentiments that cover a number of occasions.

CreativeInkingHop-PaintedPoppiesEmbossedRt-Lori-DSC00803

I paired the free stamp set with another favorite — Painted Poppies stamp set!  This set is filled with poppies and leaves (no sentiments), so together they can help form birthday, anniversary, get well or congratulations cards. The technique shown is how to use up cardstock strips and use them as a background for the heat embossed Poppies.  The Peaceful Poppies Specialty Designer Series paper (not used on card) was my inspiration for the cardstock color choices.

 

CreativeInkingHop-PaintedPoppiesEmbossedLeft-Lori-DSC00805

The Painted Poppies stamp set is bundled with the Painted Labels Dies, found on page 25 in the January-June 2020 Mini catalog.  These dies can be used with any stamp set available in the store.  They can be used for showcasing sentiments, layering or used as a tag.  LOVE-Love-love them!!

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 Starter Kit and save 20% with each purchase.  There really isn't anything to lose...only lots to gain!  But, until you make that leap to join my Stampin' Up! family and fill your starter kit with new January-June Mini products you'll find the ingredients listed below, and 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 "Celebrate Sale-A-Bration" creations using supplies from the January-June 2020 Mini 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.  :)

Mini Catalog Designer Series Paper and Ribbon Shares — Stampin' Dreams

01-01-20_dheader_golive_jj_mc_na-LoriProductSharesHeader

YAY!!!  I am SUPER excited to share my 2020 January-June Mini Catalog Product Shares with you.  Each year, my customers and members of Lori's Dream Team ask for this, so I happily organize it.  Because, who am I to disappoint?  Not you, that's for sure!  So, if you are new to the paper crafting industry, you might be asking, "What the heck is a 'Product Share'"?  Follow me as I explain.

WHAT IS A PRODUCT SHARE?

As each new Stampin' Up! catalog comes to life, the excitement for all of the new products can be a bit overwhelming.  You COULD place a big order and purchase one of each one of the new Designer Series Paper packs and accessories in the catalog, but that could be a bit outside of the walls of our pocket book.  To share a small portion of these new products that we *NEED* to have, means that we bring in the purchasing power of our friends and purchase a smaller portion of everything for a smaller fraction of the price.  This is why product shares are so helpful.  When you sign up for a spot in one of my shares, you'll have "a little bit of everything" so that you can "sample the buffet" before fully investing in the products.

 

How to "save your spot" in Lori's Product Shares, please email me directly at LoriDreamsStampin@yahoo.com

Everyone within the U.S. is welcome to participate (per Stampin' Up! guidelines, I'm not allowed to sell products outside of the United States borders).  Supplies for the first round of share groups will be ordered as soon as the catalog goes live on January 3rd.  In order to offer these shares, I have to collect EIGHT (8) signups; and per Stampin' Up! policy, I am not allowed to post a "Buy Now" button for product shares.  So, in order to get in on the first round..."save your spot" and email me the following information:

1.  Full Name
2.  Complete Mailing Address (United States addresses only)
3.  Email Address for Paypal invoicing, and confirmation.
4.  Which share(s) you would like to reserve (see choices below)
 
I will place orders with Stampin' Up! as each share fills.  I will inform you of your total and send you a Paypal invoice when I place the order. The order will take about 7-10 days to get to me.  Once it arrives, I'll get my butt busy sorting, cutting, wrapping, packaging and mailing it out to you.  This process can take upwards to 10 business days or more.

If you order multiple shares, I will ship it all together in one package. Contact me for a shipping quote (a padded Priority Mailing Envelope can hold quite a bit).  For local people, please contact me directly. Shipping charges are waved if you can pick it up.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
All ribbon shares are wrapped neatly to ensure wrinkle free ribbon. In addition...all shares are protected by cello bag packaging to ensure safe and dry delivery!
 
NOTE:  Regular Dreamer's Loyalty Rewards apply to the total product share purchases and add-ons over $30.  Learn more.

 

2020 Occasions Catalog Product Shares

So, what items from the new Stampin' Up! catalog am I sharing with you?  To make life super easy for you (and for me), I've included several options for you.  There are Designer Series and Specialty Paper shares; and, catalog Ribbon & Trim shares.  My All-time favorite is the "Whole Kit-n-Kaboodle" option.  Receive everything offered at a bundled price!  To view all of the selections up close and personal  Download CatalogProductShares-DSP-Ribbon to review your options.

Creative Inking Blog Hop — Tis The Season for Wrapped In Plaid Home Decor

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  Welcome-welcome to another episode of our Creative Inking Blog Hop!  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 wonderful creations.

CreativeInking-HeaderImage

Even though Christmas is next week, there is still plenty of time to craft up a special gift piece for that special loved one.  OR, you can keep it for yourself...whichever, your little heart desires. Teehehe The Wrapped In Plaid Designer Series paper speaks an elegant 'country chic' to me, so I thought I'd tie it together with the much loved Perfectly Plaid bundle found in the Holiday catalog (page 13-14) to re-purpose a wooden frame that I found in the Clearance Rack at a local store.  The inside platform measures 8-1/2" wide by 6-3/4" tall (measurements exclude the wooden frame).

PerfectlyPlaid-WoodFrameFront-Lori-DSC00711

This home decor piece would probably be labeled as a 'sampler' simply because it showcases a variety of dies, punches and techniques all on one platform.  I broke it up into 3 different panels, with the middle one designated as the focal image and complimented with 2 side panels.

PerfectlyPlaid-WoodenFrameStockings-LoriDSC00714

One of the patterns in the Wrapped In Plaid Designer Series paper pack has a variety of stockings that (in my mind) called for some fussy cutting.  With each stocking, the matted cardstock layer compliments one of the colors in the stocking.  The Gold Foil paper layer gave them a richer flavor for the line-up.  Super cute, right?!!!

PerfectlyPlaid-WoodenFrameSentiment-Lori-DSC00717

Have I told you how much I loooove stitched dies?  YUP!!  The bottom sentiment is originally a one-liner, but it wouldn't fit in the width of this particular panel, so I inked up each word using coordinating ink colors found in the designer paper and created my own sentiment layout.  This technique is called "masking" and is super easy.  Just have to remember to remove the tape before stamping; and clean the image before inking the sentiment with a new color.  Once you have that memorized, you're stamping like a champ!

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 Starter Kit and save 20% with each purchase.  There really isn't anything to lose...only lots to gain!  But, until you make that leap to join my Stampin' Up! family and fill your starter kit with new January-June Mini and/or Holiday catalog products you'll find the ingredients listed below, and 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 "Tis The Season" creations using supplies from the Holiday 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.
