Creative Inking Blog Hop — Summer Fun with Zany Zebras

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  Today our amazing Creative Inking designers have created an inspiring group of projects themed as "Summer Fun".  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.

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.

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!

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. 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.  :)

Memorial Day Thank You to America's Heros

Happy Memorial Day stampers!!

MemorialDay-ThankYouFlagDieCard-Lori-DSC01599

Today, I'm sharing a card I created in remembrance and honor of our America's heroes.  I used the retiring Thank You Die as my focal image, as it says it all on a day like today.  It's not always an easy task for me, but I was able to create a nice, clean and simple layout that would fit more of the casual stamper category.

MemorialDayThankYouFlagSponge-Lori-DSC01598

With the help of a couple of Sponge Daubers to create a simulated American flag, I sponged on some Night of Navy and Real Red ink in a swirling motion to a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I die cut the Thank You from the sponged piece, plus, die cut two more Thank You's from regular Whisper White cardstock.

MemorialDayThankYouFlagDie-Close-Lori-DSC01594

I glued all three Thank You die layers to each making sure to stack them with the sponged layer on top.  This technique adds dimension and the look of white chipboard.  I die cut a couple different sizes of Stitched Stars from Vellum cardstock and set in place on a Whisper White cardstock layer that was embossed with the Brick & Mortar 3D embossing folder.  I'm super sad the Whisper White 5/8" Flax Ribbon is on the retirement list...I use that stuff A LOT!  My favorite part is to separate the long strands and use them to add a bit of rustic feel to my creations.

MemorialDayThankYouFlagDieFlat-Lori-DSC01593

A few Rhinestone Basic Jewels adorn the final step to bring all of the elements together on this day of remembrance.  God bless the Red, White and Blue!  Thank you to all those that risked their life for me to live life freely.  I'm sooo-so thankful; you will never be forgotten!

Click the video to see the step-by-step tutorial.  I started the card demonstration at about 7:30 minutes into the recording.  Enjoy!

OSAT Blog Hop — Manly Country Club Golfer

Good morning stampers and paper crafters!  Welcome to the May One Stamp At a Time (OSAT) Design Team Blog Hop.  My name is Lori Mueller (stampindreams.com) and I'm excited you've stopped by.  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 project(s), 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 "Manly May" or anything masculine.  Well, that means I get to play with the Country Club Suite of products.  My husband's favorite pasttime is golfing, and due to the strange weather in Nebraska the last couple of years, the golf courses have only been closed a handful of weeks.  When he's out on the greens, I'm content to stamp and share my creations with you.  YAY!! 

OSATHop-ManlyGolferFront-Lori-DSC01454
The starting point for this card was the Country Club Designer Series Paper.  There's a retired pro golfer who was easily recognized by the argyle pants he wore during each tournament.  This pattern reminded me of him.  I love the color combination of Mint Macaron, Garden Green, Poppy Parade and Crushed Curry.  The subtle Mint Macaron cardbase sets the tone for the Golf Club die to stand as a silhouette resting on a Poppy Parade die cut from the Painted Labels die set.

OSATHop-ManlyGolferFlat-Lori-DSC01462
The Golf Club die set has all the elements that you'd find in a typical golf bag — golf tees, golf balls, clubs, and a bit of cut grass from the course.  At the end of the year, there's enough of the dried out grass to build a birds nest!  Well, maybe not that much, but pretty close!  I took a piece of the Garden Green Country Club Twine and unwound all the fine strands to wrap and tie into a bow.  It reminded me of all the grass stuck to the bottom of golf shoes and the towel used to wash and dry the balls that rolled into a pond or sand bunker.

OSATHop-ManlyGolferRT-Lori-DSC01458

The sentiment came from the Clubhouse stamp set. It was inked with Night of Navy, stamped onto Whisper White cardstock, and die cut with a banner die found in the Golf Club die set.  The Golf cart shield is part of one of the Country Club Designer Series paper patterns — and, there's a die, too!  Gotta love it when dies and designer paper coordinate!  I finished with a splattered texture over the card front using the brush end of my Basic Black Stampin' Write marker and flicking it from the inside of the cap.  Envision the golfer in a sand bunker and that is sand flying after the swing!  Teehehe


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 — Timeless Tulips for Mother's Day

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

Stamp-it-mothers-day

In just a couple short weeks, we will be celebrating Mother's Day, which is our creative theme this month!  Tulips are going to be the flower of celebration this year because of it's multitude of colors available.  One day, I hope to travel to the Netherlands during the prime season of the Tulip fields.  I've seen lots and lots of beautiful pictures...so dreamy!

StampItHop-MothersDayTulips-Lori-DSC01385
The Last-Chance Products list was released earlier this week, which includes the 2018-2020 In Colors:  Blueberry Bushel, Call Me Clover, Grapefruit Grove, Lovely Lipstick and Pineapple Punch.  I wanted to create a 'field of tulips in Amersterdam', but on a much smaller scale, of course.  One of my personal crafting struggles is to create simply, using only stamps, paper and ink.  I think I achieved it — sort of — I did use a couple of punches.  The struggle is real!  The Starburst Punch also landed on the Last-Chance List...I'm going to miss this one.  Another goal is to show off all of the retiring In Colors on one card with the help  of ink, cardstock and ribbon.  WOOT!

Would you like to create this super cute Timeless Tulip Mother's Day 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. You fill my cup!

For more Mother's Day themed creations that I'm sure will be favorites for you to try, 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 — Sending Handmade Love with Ornate Garden Flowers

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  Today is blog hop day, April 20th, which means our amazing Creative Inking designers have created an inspiring group of projects themed as "Sending Handmade Love".  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.

CreativeInking-HeaderImage

With the unprecedented situation occurring all around the world, we sure could use a little love when we open that mailbox door.  The Ornate Garden Suite of products has definitely proven to be a crowd pleaser and has delivered many smiles and warm hearts since it's early release this month.
 
CreativeInkingHop-SendingLoveOrnate-Lori-DSC01353

This particular patterned paper from the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series paper has a bit of pink that resembles one of our 2018-2020 In Colors — Lovely Lipstick.  I'm sad that it will soon be leaving us (set to retire June 2nd), so I wanted to highlight it with one of the Ornate Layers Dies.

CreativeInkingHop-SendingLoveOrnateHeart-Lori-DSC01362

Sadly, I have a couple of dear friends (also members of my Lori's Dream Team) who have recently lost loved ones...not due to the current health issue, but the situation makes it really tough to mourn with family and friends.  The sentiment comes from the Ornate Thanks stamp set.  It is a perfect sentiment that can stand by itself and fall into several occasions: Thank You, Sympathy, Appreciation, etc.  I decided to snip this long stream of words apart and have it compliment the daisy image from the Ornate Style stamp set that was stamped onto a heart die cut from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits.

CreativeInkingHop-SendingLoveOrnateLT-Lori-DSC01355

Everything rests upon a Vellum layer embossed with the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  I just love how elegant this came out!  You can see all of the new Ornate Garden Suite of 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. You fill my cup!



 

So with one click you can be on your way to soak in some more inspiration showcasing more "Sending Handmade Love" creations using supplies from any of the current catalogs 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.  :)

Retiring 2018-2020 Stampin' Up! In Colors

As the days grow longer, the sun shines more and Spring brings out the blooming flowers, so does the sequence of events for items to retire from the current catalogs (big Annual and January-June 2020 Mini catalogs).  One of the many items that will be on the retiring list are the oldest In Color families — 2018-2020!

IF YOU ARE IN LOVE WITH THEM, GET THEM NOW!  Many of the 2018-2020 coordinating In Color products will be retiring as of June 2, 2020 (same time as the current Annual catalog and the January-June 2020 Mini) and will appear on the Stampin' Up! Retiring Products List on April 22.  I can't express enough how past history plays out the same each year...retiring In Color products have sold out very quickly...especially, the Reinkers for the Classic Ink Pads.  Once they are sold out, it is forever.

Here's a closer look at the Retiring Stampin' Up! 2018-2020 In Color products in my online store.  Click and shop now!

Stamping Around The World — Ornate Garden Special Thank You

AroundTheWorld-CountryBlogHop-Header

Good morning, my crafty friends!  If you've been traveling along the Stamping Around The World Blog Hop; or, if this is your very first stop, I want to thank you so much for stopping to visit me Lori Mueller, Stampin' Dreams. If you like to skip and hop and happen to get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog...you definitely want to make sure you see all of the amazing creations shared by the design team.

SATWHop-OrnateGardenGratefulDaisies-Lori-DSC01333
You are probably thinking I'm infatuated with the new Ornate Garden Suite that has been released prior to the new Annual catalog going live in June, huh?  Okay, I admit it!  Yessss, I'm in love with the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series paper because it speaks to me in volumes for everything vintage.  The colors of Terracotta Tile, Old Olive, and the neutral Soft Suede are a subtle combination of beauty.

SATWHop-OrnateGardenGratefulDaisiesHand-Lori-DSC01350

The Ornate Layers Dies are bundled with the Ornate Style stamp set (for a savings of 10%), but the dies are so elegant that you can use them with any stamp set or dies.  These are a definite requirement on your next order.  The daisy is part of the Ornate Style stamp set and was stamped onto the rectangle stitched die from the Ornate Layers dies.

SATWHop-OrnateGardenGratefulDaisies-CloseFlat-Lori-DSC01343

The die cut for the daisies is much longer than what you see on the card...original die is the same length as the sentiment.  I shortened it by lining up the first cut with the 'teeth' of the die and ran it through my die-cutting machine just to cut off the end.  TIP: do not run the die all the way through the machine...just enough to feel the bump of the cut, then back out to see the new finished edge.

SATWHop-OrnateGardenGratefulDaisiesRT-Lori-DSC01337

This suite has a bundle of two ribbon spools...one in Old Olive and the other in Terracotta Tile...a nice soft, satin texture that is easy to work with.  I chose the large, bold sentiment from Ornate Thanks stamp set, but toned it down by clear heat embossing the Terracotta Tile ink color on Vellum cardstock that was die cut with the same rectangle stitched die used for each daisy image.

Here's a sneak peek of my project included in the April Stamping Around The World Tutorial Bundle.  It was my inspiration when designing my card.  I love all of the floral patterns included with this designer paper; and the big bold sentiments speak volumes...I'm SO grateful!


Would you like to create this lovely card for someone you are grateful to?   I've listed all of the supplies I used at the bottom of this post; and, it's all set 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.  For more beautiful inspiration, you'll want to make sure you hop on over to the next Stamping Around The World members' blogs to see all of the amazing creations they have to share.  Thank you so much for stopping by....stop back again real soon.
