Stamping Techniques

Frightfully CUTE Tombstone Treat Box

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

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


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

The Playful Alphabet dies are the perfect size for my headstone.  I added Basic Gray cardstock to a section of Adhesive Sheets and die cut to add a bit of dimension.  So cool!
 

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

Creative Inking Blog Hop — Celebrating Sale-A-Bration with Textures & Frames

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  Today, our amazing team of Creative Inking designers are showcasing a bundle of projects featuring the wonderful Sale-A-Bration products you can earn for free with a qualifying order.  There's a mix of stamp sets, designer series paper and dies that lend itself to lots of FUN creativity!  You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the very talented Susan Campbell's blog. Please be sure to click the 'Next' button (found below) to move along the Creative Inking blog hop to see all the beautiful and amazing projects.

CreativeInking-HeaderImage

I'm really having a ton of fun playing with all of the Sale-A-Bration selections, but the highlight of the card I'm sharing features the Textures & Frames stamp set (free with $50 purchase)!  It's like playing with geometric shapes or Legos to see what fun patterns can be created, but with the added personal choice of colors. 

CreativeInkingHop-Textures & Frames Sheep-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04819

I took the one image from the Textures & Frames set and incorporated four colors found on the back of the Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper pack (another freebie Sale-A-Bration item with a $50 purchase).  The image was randomly stamped to create my own fun patterned paper that I matted with Basic Black cardstock.  I layered a piece of Vellum cardstock over a piece of Penguin Playmates designer paper to tone it down so it wouldn't steal away from the main stamped background.
 
CreativeInkingHop-Textures & Frames Sheep-Flat Close-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04827
I have a young lady who has recently achieved a wonderful goal, but was too modest to share her success with others.  She's a bit quiet, so I thought this adorable sheep image from the Counting Sheep stamp set (another freebie with a $50 purchase) was perfect to help me 'quietly' recognize and congratulate her. 
 

CreativeInkingHop-Textures & Frames Sheep-Supplies-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04825

The best part of this card is that I was able to earn the Sale-A-Bration Host stamp set, In Your Words!  It's filled with a wide variety of all occasion sentiments, including the one I inked in Memento Black and stamped onto another Textures & Frames image.  This one was inked in Soft Sea Foam and die cut using a scalloped Layering Circles Die.  Both the sentiment and sheep are set in place with Stampin' Dimensionals.

For all the details and step-by-step instructions on how to create this fun Textures & Frames Celebration card, watch the video tutorial I've created and posted on my YouTube Channel — Stampin' Dreams—Lori Mueller.

Happy Birthday America — Red-White-Blue Pinwheel Tower Card

Happy Birthday to America!!  God Bless the Red-White & Blue and to all of our military men and women who serve our country proudly.

Biggest Wish-America Birthday Stamps-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04551

Today's card creation is a super fun one as it shows off a couple of different styles and techniques.  The Biggest Wish stamp set and Stitched Stars Dies are the highlighting the main attraction to show off the Red-White & Blue color scheme.

Biggest Wish-America Birthday Blends-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04562
The first technique to display is the fabulous watercoloring with Stampin' Blends and Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol.  One important note...you'll want to purchase and use the 91% Alcohol content product in order to get the desired results of the watercolor effect.  When I used a lower percentage, the colors ran a lot more and ended up bleeding and mixing more than I desired.

Biggest Wish-America Birthday Stars-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04544

Check out this boomer of a fun-fold technique!!  It's been name the "Pinwheel Tower" card design/fold.  This interactive card definitely proclaims a huge WOW factor.  It's super easy to assemble, too.  The Basic White Stitched Stars Die rests upon a pattern of designer paper from the FREE with qualifying party called Pattern Party.  If you'd like to Host an in-person or virtual Stampin' Up! party to earn the 48-sheet pack for free, give me a holler!

Biggest Wish-America Birthday Flat Envelope-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04553

To add a little more festivity for the occasion, use the little stars that come out of the die to decorate one of the side panels.

Biggest Wish-America Birthday Tag-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04557
The sentiments from the Biggest Wish set adds on a whole other level of fun!  The 'Birthday' sentiment was inked in Misty Moonlight and stamped off two times before stamping the third time onto the Basic White strip.  This was to make sure the 'happy', inked in Real Red, would stand out from the big bold lettering of the first stamp.

For all the details and step-by-step instructions on how to create this card, watch the replay of my Facebook Live.  I get together with crafters for a new episode of Sunday Stampin' Dreams each Sunday at 2:30P.

I hope you give this fun-fold and coloring technique a try!  You are going to be addicted, I'm sure!  These interactive cards are always a big bang for you and your recipients.  Happy 4th; and stay safe, my friends!

Happy Father's Day to all the Dad's in the world.  Most men I know really enjoy covering their locks of hair with some sort of a ball cap.  My father is no exception!  He wears one every single day that he is working on the farm or trucking down the road.  So, when I saw the new Hats Off stamps and coordinating Hat Builder Dies, I knew that bundle would be landing in my creative space.

CreativeInkingHop-Hats Off Fancy Fold Notecard Stamps-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04532

I chose to make a cute note card that works like a mini easel card.  It's a fun fold that allows the recipient to prop their card on the desk or end table for display.

Retiring Snailed It — Hello Alcohol and Reinker Background Technique

Snailed It-Hello Alcohol Ink Backgroundx2-Lori-DSC04464

As I was looking through the January-June 2021 Mini catalog to see which sets and/or bundles I was going to miss A LOT, I stopped flipping the pages when I came across the Snailed It Suite on pages 54-55.  I think those snails are just so darned cute!  I've made quite a few projects using the stamp images, but the Snail Dies make creating a card super quick and easy to cut coordinating images from the Snail Mail Designer Series Paper, too.

JJ_2021_US_Page_01-Retiring-Lori- SnailedItBundle-156255

There's a new inking technique that I wanted to try using Rubbing Alcohol and Stampin' Up! Reinkers.  The result is really cool and guarantees that you'll never get the same result twice...making your handmade card even more unique!

Snailed It-Hello Alcohol Ink Background Close-Lori-DSC04465

I tried several different methods and means to create a 'smooshed' background look.  The Vellum cardstock produced a nice subtle smoosh look, but you have to work fast because the rubbing alcohol made the Vellum curl up.  I may have squirted a bit too much, too.  The Window Sheets produced more of a wet mash of ink...the colors blended a bit too much for me.  My favorite was the shimmery Pearlescent Specialty Paper.  It was a nice surprise to see the shimmer from the specialty paper transfer over to the Basic White cardstock layer. 

If I had used less squirts of rubbing alcohol on the Vellum, I'm certain I could leave to dry and use on another card.  The nice thing about the Window Sheet is that you can wash/rinse it and reuse for mass production. 

 

Snailed It-Hello Alcohol Ink Background Pearlescent-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04493

Buuut, the Pearlescent Specialty Paper won my vote as I was able to use it on another card as soon as it dried.  **squeal**  I demonstrated this card and how to create the fun alcohol and reinker background during my Sunday Stampin' Dreams online card class.  You can catch the replay here

Memorial Day Veteran Thank you with Color & Contour

Happy Memorial Day!  Today, we commemorate the lives of many heros who fell in the line of duty protecting our country from harm and ensuring our freedoms.  Thank you...we will never forget you!

Color Contour-Thanks Memorial Day CloseFlat-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04430

The Color & Contour stamp set with coordinating Scalloped Contours Dies sets the tone for this Red, White & Blue Thank You in recognition of our wonderful veteran heros. I was inspired from a card found in our new Annual catalog focusing on our Blending Brushes to add gradients of color. 

Color Contour-Thanks Memorial Day Gold Metallic-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04428

After die cutting the Scalloped Contour frame, I used a scrap piece of paper to create my gradient layers with a Blending Brush and Real Red ink.  A sheet of small Grid paper helped me ensure my lines would be straight across and not "kitty-whompus".  The flower image was inked with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink with the speckles stamped as a second rendition with Misty Moonlight ink.

Color Contour-Thanks Memorial Day Ink-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04422

There's a new pack of paper that is sooo pretty!  Its the Gold & Rose Metallic 6" x 6" Specialty paper and I couldn't pass up adding it to the Misty Moonlight card base.  It also stands as a scalloped circle matte behind the clear embossed sentiment on Vellum cardstock.  Just the right amount of bling.  The coloring options are endless to create something for any occasion.

I demonstrated this card and Blending Brushes gradient technique during my Sunday Stampin' Dreams online card class yesterday.  You can catch the replay here

Creative Inking Blog Hop — New Catalog Must Have Spiral Dye

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  Today, our wonderful Creative Inking designers have created a bundle of projects featuring our favorites that are a "Must Have" from the new Annual catalog.  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 and amazing projects.

The minute I came across the Spiral Dye Background stamp in the new catalog, I knew I just had to have it!  Who can resist receiving something tie-dyed?  But even better...who can resist creating cards and other projects using this stamp?  The color combinations are endless!

CreativeInkingHop-Spiral Dye Amazing Front-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04400
For this super fun card, I used a couple of the new 2021-2023 In Colors...Pale Papaya and Soft Succulent.  I just love how soft it looks all spread across the Very Vanilla card base.  I thought about adding some texture to the Soft Succulent layer, but really wanted the stamped Spiral Dye to be the focal point.  It was super easy to create a 2-color tie-dye result.  I used my Stamparatus as a guide of placement for the first color stamped.  Then, flip the Very Vanilla layer 180 degrees, placing it in the exact same spot.  Remember to clean your stamp before adding new ink color to stamp the 2nd time.  Comes out perfect every time!
 
CreativeInkingHop-Spiral Dye Amazing Flat Tag-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04407
 

The sentiment comes from the Color & Contour stamp set and was inked with Soft Succulent and stamped onto Very Vanilla cardstock before cutting out with the Tailor Made Tags Dies set.  I love that the dies set comes with a die that will cut out reinforcement pieces (like the old days for page dividers in a 3-ring binder) allowing you to add a coordinating color from your overall creation.

CreativeInkingHop-Spiral Dye Amazing RT-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04412

To add a little more balance to the two colors, I tied some of the new Pale Papaya 3/8" Open Weave Ribbon to the end of the Tailor Made Tags die cut.  Then added the sentiment layer to the front of the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

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'.

Creative Inking Blog Hop — Congrats to Vine Design Golden Anniversary

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  Today, our wonderful Creative Inking designers have a bundle of projects featuring the Celebrations, of sorts...Love Always, Anniversary, Love You, etc.  You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the very talented Susan Campbells' blog. Please be sure to click the 'Next' button (found below) to move along the Creative Inking blog hop to see all the beautiful and amazing projects.

CreativeInking-HeaderImage

I have a number of Anniversary celebrations to acknowledge, one being a Golden Anniversary.  It is always a grand, heart-warming celebration to know that a couple has grown together in love for 50 years of their lives.  The Vine Design Bundle from the January-June 2021 Mini catalog includes a set of dies that are perfect for this kind of celebration.  The Flowering Vine Dies are so elegant, but yet, can generate a bold statement for the occasion. 

CreativeInkingHop-Vine Design 50 Anniversary Front-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04350
 
There is nothing more elegant than tieing a Basic Black card base with Basic White layers and Gold accents.  Mmm-mmmm!  Sooo pretty!
 
CreativeInkingHop-Vine Design 50 Anniversary Flat Close-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04342
 

The Basic White layer was run through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine with the Subtles 3D Embossing Folder (will retire on May 3).  The Flowering Vine Die was cut from Pearlescent Specialty Paper and backed with multiple cuts of the smaller flowers from Gold Foil paper.  Look at that pretty pearl sheen!  For more sparkle, each gold flower center was filled with a Gold Glitter Enamel Dot.  I love that there are 4 different sizes of dots...fit perfect for the different sized flowers.  To show off all the Pearl-y sheen and Gold flowers, I lined the Pearlescent die with a strip of Basic Black cardstock.

CreativeInkingHop-Vine Design 50 Anniversary RT-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04346

The sentiment comes from the Vine Design stamp set and was heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder before die cut with the layering die from the Flowering Vine Die set.  It was set into place with Stampin' Dimensionals.  To recognize the number of years being celebrated, the numbers come from the Playful Alphabet Dies set and were cut from Gold Foil paper.  A very simple, but elegant Anniversary card recognizing 50 years of love together.  Love-love-love!

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.

Feb2015-TeamStampIt-Header


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. You fill my cup!

There's a whole line-up of Spring Fling Sale-A-Bration themed projects that I'm sure will help you get a jump start on your holiday creations, so 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 — Word Wishes Happy New Year 2021

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  Are you ready to boot 2020 out the door?!!!  Me toooo!  Our amazing Creative Inking designers have a bundle of inspirational projects themed as "New Year", "Retire", and anything else that goes along with new beginnings.  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

I can't believe I'm going to say this, but my card share has absolutely NO rubber stamping with ink on it!  Eeeek!  I'm in love with our new Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine that I pulled out several die sets and the Dainty Diamonds Embossing folder to 'do all the talking'. 

CreativeInkingHop-Word Wishes New Year-RT-Lori Stampin Dreams-DSC03804
 
When I think of New Year's, I always think of the evening to dress up with more glam and sparkle.  I love Basic Black with anything shiny...so rich looking.
 
CreativeInkingHop-Word Wishes New Year-Champagne Mist-Lori Stampin Dreams-DSC03798
 
I added an extra layer of Basic Black that is an 1/8" smaller than the base and splattered some Champagne Mist all over the front using the middle sized Water Painters brush.  Just dip the tip into the ink and use the edge of the container to 'flick' the ink.  You can get close for bigger splotches, or pull away for more of a fine dusting of ink.
 
CreativeInkingHop-Word Wishes New Year-Close-Lori Stampin Dreams-DSC03812
 

The Word Wishes dies are a lovely font and dainty.  I wanted them to pop off the page, so I added some Champagne Foil paper to a piece of Adhesive Foam sheet and die cut the words.  Note to self:  since the words are so dainty, it does take a little bit more patience to release them from the die. :)


CreativeInkingHop-Word Wishes New Year-Dies-Lori Stampin Dreams-DSC03806-1
To bring more focus to the Word Wishes sentiment, I added a piece of Vellum cardstock that was embossed with the Dainty Diamonds Embossing Folder.  For a smidgin of color, I die cut the Stitched Stars die from Bumblebee cardstock.  To finish it off with more bling, I scattered some Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels throughout.

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'.
