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.

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. 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.  :)

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.

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.

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!

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.

CreativeInking-HeaderImage

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.

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.
