Stamp It Blog Hop — Final Sale-A-Bration Spring Fling to Heal Your Heart

Good morning stampers and crafty friends! I'm so happy you have stopped by.  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 all of the great inspiration.

It's so hard to believe that Sale-A-Bration ends tomorrow at midnight!  YIKES!  With that said, that's what our hop theme is all about the Final Sale-A-Bration Spring Fling!  This last week, I attended a funeral for my long-time BFF's father.  The first thing I thought of was the Brushed Blooms Bundle and Heal Your Heart stamp sets.  The Heal Your Heart stamps are free with a $50 order during Sale-A-Bration and has several sentiments that fit this sad occasion.

StampItHop-Brushed Blooms-Heal Your Heart Flat-Stampin Dreams Lori-DSC04179

I'm still on a Brushed Blooms kick and couldn't resist creating a card that brought the two sets together.  I just love the images and dies from this bundle, so I brought in some of the True Love Designer Series Paper that was cut with the 2nd to largest scallop stitched rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies set.  To tone down the starkness of the Basic Black, I overlayed a piece of Vellum cardstock.

StampItHop-Brushed Blooms-Heal Your Heart Sympathy Close-Stampin Dreams Lori-DSC04182

I borrowed some inspiration for the Basic White layer from the January-June 2021 mini catalog (page 28).  It consists of a mix of Mint Macaron brushstrokes and Beautiful Brushstrokes Dies.  I first stamped the image from the Brushed Blooms stamp set randomly across the page and filled in with the brushstrokes die pieces.  Then used the little polka dot image inked with Memento, stamped off once, and stamped randomly across the whole area.  Super fun to create your own backgrounds using stamps and dies.

StampItHop-Brushed Blooms-Heal Your Heart Sympathy Front-Stampin Dreams Lori-DSC04183

The flower arrangement is made up of Mango Melody and Flirty Flamingo with Soft Sea Foam leaves and Mint Macaron leaf veins...all cut with dies from the Beautiful Brushstrokes Dies set.  For a little softness, I accented the flowers with some White Baker's Twine from the Snail Mail Twine Combo pack.  The sentiment from Heal Your Heart was inked with Memento and trimmed and popped up with Dimensionals.

Would you like to re-create this Sympathy 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.

Creative Inking Blog Hop — Darling Donkeys Celebrate Sale-A-Bration

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  Today, our wonderful Creative Inking designers have a bundle of projects inspired by the current Sale-A-Bration Season. So, the theme of our blog is "Celebrate Sale-A-Bration".  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 beautiful projects.

CreativeInking-HeaderImage

During this (almost) year-long pandemic, the one diagnosis that has not stopped, or slowed down, are the dreaded uttered words ... "you have Cancer".  A day that one will never forget. Outside of having friends and family by your side to help keep your spirits high during the days of chemo treatments, daily chores around the house and moments of saddness and bleh...there is one image in the Darling Donkeys stamp set that will brighten your day to help kick Cancer to the curb.    

CreativeInkingHop-Darling Donkey Cancer-Lori Stampin Dreams-DSC03980
 
When I first saw the Darling Donkeys stamp set in the Sale-A-Bration brochure, this particular Donkey gave me the brightest vision to create this card.  The cardbase is Sahara Sand with two different patterns of the Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper (also a Sale-A-Bration freebie) layered onto Soft Suede cardstock.  I chose to go outside the traditional rectangular or square layering of the designer paper because I wanted the Darling Donkey to be the focus and not get lost in all the circles.
 
CreativeInkingHop-Darling Donkeys Cancer Close-Lori Stampin Dreams-DSC03988
 
I inked the donkey image with Early Espresso and colored with Stampin' Blends (Crumb Cake–light & dark; Smoky Slate–light & dark; and, Light Soft Suede).  After hand cutting the image, I adhered him to a Vellum Circle die cut from the Layering Circles Dies set that measures 1-7/8" using Stampin' Dimensionals.  I tucked the sentiment inked with Rococo Rose and die cut with a die from the Tasteful Labels Dies set between the donkey and Vellum circle.
 
CreativeInkingHop-Darling Donkeys Cancer Flat-Lori Stampin Dreams-DSC03986
 

The Playful Alphabet Dies were perfect to cut from Sahara Sand cardstock that was adhered to a sheet of Foam Adhesive.  They all rest on the smallest scallop rectangle layer die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies set that was cut from Soft Suede cardstock.


CreativeInkingHop-Darling Donkey Cancer RT-Lori Stampin Dreams-DSC03983
Before setting everything into place, I added a strand of the Braided Linen Trim to hide the seam connecting the two patterned papers.  It was perfect color to compliment the card base and Playful Alphabet letters.  Cancer stinks!  but with good spirits, a strong faith, tons of support from family and friends, and the Darling Donkeys...cancer will not win!

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'.

OSAT Blog Hop — Say Hello to Sweet Strawberry

Good morning stampers and paper crafters!  Welcome to January and our 1st 2021 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!

OSAT2020HeaderOur January theme is "Say Hello to", so let me introduce you to my Sweet Strawberry card.  This set comes from the new January-June 2021 Mini catalog and has a coordinating Strawberry Builder Punch.  I'm excited to share with you how I how put this beauty together.

OSATHop-Sweet Strawberry Front-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC03948
The new Berry Delightful Designer Series paper pack is filled with a variety of hand painted berries and vines images that were transformed into the lovely designer crafting paper.  It showcases a large variety of our color palette—displaying soft and bold tones.  The best part is that you can get this paper pack for free (along with a complimentary Berry Blessings stamp set) with a $100 order during Sale-A-Bration.

OSATHop-Sweet Strawberry Flat-Stampin Dreams Lori MuellerDSC03954
I chose to pull out the Garden Green, Daffodil Delight and Real Red with a Sahara Sand card base.  The strawberry images and leaves are a 2-step process...one image is the bolder outline of the fruit and leaf.  The 2nd image is the 'filler' color of the fruit.  I used the Garden Green cardstock as the filler for the leaf with the outline image stamped with Shaded Spruce ink.

OSATHop-Sweet Strawberry Close-Stampin Dreams Lori MuellerDSC03959

To help tone down the busy-ness of the strawberry patterned paper, I lined up 3 strips of Garden Green cardstock to reflect the side of a wagon or a bushel basket.  The stamped strawberries are popped up with dimensionals on Daffodil Delight cardstock that was punched with the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch.  For some texture, I ran them through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine with the Tasteful Textiles Embossing Folder.

OSATHop-Sweet Strawberry Left-Stampin Dreams Lori MuellerDSC03951

The lovely sentiment was inked with Garden Green and accented with a 1/8" strip of Real Red cardstock before set into place with Dimensionals.  For a bit of bling, the strawberries were adorned with the smallest Gold Glitter Enamel Dots in the package.  I have to tell you, while creating this card, I got hungry for strawberries!  YUM!


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 — Best Dressed Easter Eggs

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

No photo description available.

In just a couple short weeks, we will be celebrating Easter, which is our creative theme this month!  YUM!  I'm sooo looking forward to a full feast of homemade foods made from several favorite family recipes.  One favorite 'appetizer' that gets gobbled up fast are deviled eggs.  We never seem to make enough...always the first to be devoured!

StampItHop-BestDressedEasterFront-Lori-DSC01258
This card is a make up of leftover pieces on my counter.  To start, the cardbase is a non-traditional size — 3-7/8" x 11, scored at 5-1/2".  To level things out, I added a piece of Highland Heather cardstock measuring 4-1/4" x 4".  I chose to feature the Best Dressed Designer Series paper pack and focus on the subtle spring patterns found in this pack.  The papers are 6" x 6", which tend to include several patterns with smaller designs, and are not all with flowers and make-up images, which is what I was looking for to help with my make-shift Easter eggs. 

StampItHop-BestDressedEasterEggs-Lori-DSC01269

After scouring our catalogs to help me to produce 'easter eggs', I pulled out my trusty Balloon Bouquet punch.  Just cut off the balloon tail, flip them upside down and VOILA—my eggs have been hatched!  **squeal**!!  The short grasses were made using a die found in the Golf Club Dies set with Granny Apple Green cardstock.  The sentiment came from the Timeless Tulips stamp set and was heat embossed with White Embossing Powder onto Gorgeous Grape cardstock.

Creative Inking Blog Hop — Springing Ahead with Flowering Foils

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  Today is blog hop day, which means our amazing Creative Inking designers have created an inspiring group of projects themed as "Spring Ahead".  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

Can I just start out saying that Sale-A-Bration 2020 has been extraordinary this year!  Do you agree?  One of my favorite selections to choose for free has been the beautiful selection of designer series paper packs.  The latest release, the Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper, is jaw dropping gorgeous!  How can you resist adding Rose Gold foiled patterns to any project?!!  These papers were designed to keep in its natural state OR add your own color using a variety of coloring tools (Sponge Brayer, Sponge Daubers, Stampin' Blends, Stampin' Write Markers, Aqua Painters, or Stampin' Blends).  I can't wait to show you what fun I had teaming the Seriously The Best stamp set with the new Flowering Foils Specialty paper.
 
CreativeInkingHop-FloweringFoilsRt-Lori-DSC01109

I chose two of the four patterns in the pack to work with.  The 'grid' pattern is a nice neutral to tag along with the floral patterns in the rest of the designer paper patterns.  I chose one of the single large flower arrangements and added colors of Mango Melody and Pear Pizzazz using Sponge DaubersNOTE:  this is called the Emboss Resist Technique because the Rose Gold foil will resist taking on the ink.  The weight of the designer paper is suitable to hand cut the flowers...not too flimsy and not too thick to bother your hands if you deal with arthritis.

CreativeInkingHop-FloweringFloralsPasteClose-Lori-DSC01118

Before assembling the focal arrangement, I wanted to add a bit of texture with a 2nd color to help compliment the flower colors.  I've revived my passion for using Embossing Paste.  In particular, I added one drop of Pear Pizzazz Reinker to a small dollop (equivalent to 1/2 teaspoon) of Shimmery Embossing Paste and mixed together using a Palette Knife.  The Silicone Craft Mat is a wonderful tool when you want to mix up a batch of colored embossing paste.  It cleans up nicely afterwards with warm soapy water.  To make my own 'decorative mask' of the Sprig, I made a template using the Sprig Punch and Whisper White Thick Cardstock.  I set the handmade template in place and swiped the newly mixed paste over the template with the Palette Knife.  As soon as the area is filled, lift the handmade template and let dry for about 5 minutes.

CreativeInkingHop-FloweringFlorals-Lori-DSC01104

To separate the patterned paper from the rest of the white space, I added a Mango Melody scallop strip using the Stitched Be Mine dies.  I didn't want the flower image sitting all by itself, so I added a Copper Foil paper layer using the Starburst Punch and a couple of Vellum accents connected to the embossing paste layer using the Sprig Punch.  For added character, I tucked in some Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle before adding the Foil Flower with Stampin' Dimensionals.  The "thanks" sentiment is part of the Seriously The Best stamp set that I inked with Jet Black StazOn, covered with Clear Embossing Powder and set with the Heat Tool.  I chose to hand cut the sentiment and add it to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals...it added the final touch of character teamed with the focal image.

I love how this all came together so easily!  Thank you, Stampin' Up! for the adding the Flowering Foils paper as one of our FREE selections!  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. You fill my cup!



 

So with one click you can be on your way to soak in some more inspiration showcasing more "Spring Ahead" creations using supplies from any of the current catalogs and Sale-A-Bration 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.

OSAT Blog Hop — Chick Ewe Out Fable Friends

Good morning, 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 "Chick Ewe Out" (or, anything with animals related to Easter).  I chose to bring out one of my favorite stamp sets with cutie-pie critters — Fable Friends.  When I played with this set last year, I had only stamped cards using the adorable little bunny.  So, I thought this was the perfect opportunity to ink up one of the other critter images to create a cute little Easter greeting card.

OSATHop-EasterFableFriends-Lori-DSC01052

I wanted to create with a vintage tone, so I focused on soft subtle colors of greens and yellows with neutral tones of browns and tans.  The Pleased As Punch designer paper (a new Coordination product release) was matted with Soft Suede cardstock and attached to a Whisper White Thick cardbase.  Before I adhered the designer paper, I mixed up some White Embossing Paste with one dribble of So Saffron Reinker to add a bit of texture using the Pattern Party Decorative Masks.  Then 'flicked' some ink using my Dark Soft Suede Stampin' Blend marker.

OSATHop-EasterFableFriendsFlat-Lori-DSC01060

The little squirrel from Fable Friends stamp sentimate was inked with Memento and die cut with the Stitched So Sweetly die.  LOVE that set of dies!  I used a variety of Stampin' Blends colors to bring the squirrel to life delivering Easter wishes (see product list found at the bottom of this post).  The sentiment also comes from the Fable Friends set, inked with Memento and matted with a coordinating Layering Scallop Circle in So Saffron.

OSATHop-EasterFableFriendsLeft-Lori-DSC01054

I love the look of Linen Thread as an accent behind the focal image.  Both the image and sentiment were set into place using Stampin' Dimensionals.  The Iridescent Sequins give it just the right amount of bling that doesn't steal the show.


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 — 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.

Would you like to create this super cute Special Someone Birthday 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.

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.
