A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop — Spooky Treats Alternate Idea

APPT Hop Header-Image

Hello stamping friends!  My name is Lori Mueller and I welcome you to my creative share with the A Paper Pumpkin Thing blog hop group!  I'm very happy you have stopped by because our Crew is a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who are collaborating to create alternate projects using the supplies (plus, additional supplies) that come with our monthly Paper Pumpkin kits.  Each month, my Paper Pumpkin subscribers and members of my Stampin' Up! family (Lori's Dream Team) receive exclusive tutorials to beautiful alternate projects created by our PPX Crew.  Since we are having so much fun sharing exclusive alternate projects with our subscribers, we are creating a 2nd alternate project that is being shared with everyone! YAY!

SPOOKY TREATS

This month's blog hop floats along with Spooky Treats (September 2022) Paper Pumpkin kit.  Get ready to make this the most fang-tastic Halloween ever! It has all the ghostly accessories necessary to Trick—or—Treat.  Teehehe

APPT Hop-Spooky Treats Open Panel Card Front-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC06240


I went with Basic Black as my cardbase which measures 5-1/2" x 5-3/4" and then scored at 1-1/2" along the 5-1/2" side.  You'll need another strip that measures 5-1/2" x 1-1/2" for the bottom section to create the Open Panel. 

APPT Hop-Spooky Treats Open Panel RT-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC06243

The designer paper is actually one of the sleeves that was cut down and matted with Pumpkin Pie before adhering to the cardbase and extra Basic Black strip.  The inside panel is Fresh Freesia...thought it was less dramatic than using Basic White.

APPT Hop-Spooky Treats Open Panel Card Close-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC06250

Die cut a piece of Orchid Oasis using the largest square from the Stylish  Shapes dies.  Use that as a matte layer to the 2-1/4" x 2-1/4" Basic Black square.  Position the extra matted Basic Black strip on the bottom section of the card base.  The ghost image is absolutely adorable when heat embossed with White powder onto Vellum cardstock.  After hand cutting them out, I added ink to the back using a Water Painter.  I used the color palette used in the kit:  Crushed Curry, Orchid Oasis, Pumpkin Pie and Fresh Freesia.  They were added to the stitched square with Mini Dimensionals that were cut in half and strategically added to the eyes and mouth of the ghost.  This was to ensure the dimensionals were not seen through the Vellum.

APPT Hop-Spooky Treats Open Panel Card Open-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC06248


Add adhesive to the top and bottom 1/4" section of the stitched square and add it to the front top flap and the bottom strip.  This builds a 'bridge' between the two sections and creates the Open Panel. The bats image was inked with Memento Black onto the inside panel.  Super cute, right?!!  At this time, you are now ready to hop on over to the next A Paper Pumpkin Thing 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!

PPX Crew Blog Hop — June Alternate Paper Pumpkin You Are The Sweetest Pick Of The Crop Card

PPXCrew-BlogHop-Header

Hello my stamping friends!  Welcome to another series of our PPX Crew Monthly Blog Hop!  I'm very happy you have stopped by because our Crew is a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who are collaborating to create alternate projects using the supplies (plus, additional supplies) that come with our monthly Paper Pumpkin kits.  Each month, my Paper Pumpkin subscribers and members of my Stampin' Up! family (Lori's Dream Team) receive exclusive tutorials to beautiful alternate projects created by our PPX Crew.  Since we are having so much fun sharing exclusive alternate projects with our subscribers, we are creating a 2nd alternate project that is being shared with everyone! YAY!

PICK OF THE CROP

0622_PP_THUMBNAIL
0622_PP_PICK_OF_THE_CROP_MKTL_STAMP_ARTWORK

This month's blog hop features the refreshing hints of summer Pick Of The Crop (June 2022) kit.  This kit was filled with so many elements of summer that one would see, taste and smell during a morning stroll through your local Farmers Market.  Even reminded me of my trip to Italy a couple years ago...so fun!

PPXHop-June2022 Pick Of The Crop Sweetest Card-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC06028
I love that the coordinating colors are noted on the back of the instruction panel that comes with each kit.  I had a good number of colors to choose from, but I went with one of my favorites—Soft Succulent for my cardbase.  The main focal panel is taken from one of the cardbases that came with the kit that I cut to make a vertical gate fold.  I started with a 4-1/4 x 8-1/2 card base that is scored at 2-3/4 and 8-1/4 along the long edge.

PPXHop-June2022 Pick Of The Crop Sweetest Card-SideFold-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC06025

The original card base front was cut from the back at 4-1/4—saving the back for another project.  Then trim on all sides by 1/16" to give an even 1/4" trim.  Take the front panel and cut at 2-5/8 from the bottom.  To divide the trimmed card panel, cut at 2-5/8 from the bottom and adhere to each the top and bottom sections of the gatefold sections of the new cardbase.  Add the strawberry/blueberry die cut to the bottom section with Dimensionals forming the overlap of the gatefold.

PPXHop-June2022 Pick Of The Crop Sweetest Card-Close-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC06031
Ink the sentiment with Calypso Coral and stamp onto one of the picket die cuts.  Add it to a set of berries and adhere everything to the card front with Dimensionals.  For a little country touch, tie some Linen Thread around the stake and tie into a bow.  Here's a close-up of the texture, colors and dimension.  Oh-so pretty! At this time, you are now ready to hop on over to the next PPX Crew 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!

New At SU Blog Hop — No Slim Sayings with Congrats to the Grad Card

 

Blog Button-Hop Through

Hello Friends!!  Welcome to my blog share as a member of the NEW AT SU! Blog hop! We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world who are excited to share our creative paper crafting ideas with you. Today, we have a variety of occasions that we are featuring…a sure way to fill your inspiration bucket.  I'm highlighting the Slim Sayings Bundle found in the 2022 January-June Mini Catalog along with the In Good Taste 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper that is retiring from the Annual catalog.

E7D79C06-B344-4A45-B557-FD736D525DEC

High School graduations are just around the corner!! My favorite part creating a card for the graduate is to use their school colors…always makes it extra special! The background is a subtle piece of In Good Taste Designer Paper that has a bit of natural hue to it that makes this card earthy and vintage. I matted it with Merry Merlot cardstock and added to the Basic White Thick card base (measures 4-1/4 x 11))

7FCDF78E-C623-46B1-A4A0-59F758E2A9A0

You May be pondering on the Chevron die and wondering ’hey, I thought that die was longer than that’! You are correct!! I love when some dies have the allowance to lengthen or shorten to fit a particular creation. The Misty Moonlight strips were popped up with Dimensionals…I love dimension! The sentiment was inked with Misty Moonlight and Merry Merlot markers, stamped onto Basic White and die cut with Layering Circles Dies.  I think this graduate is going to keep this gem for a long time!

New At SU Blog Hop — Casing the Annual Catalog with Boughs & Blossoms

Blog Button-Hop Through

Hello Friends!!  Welcome to my blog share as a member of the NEW AT SU! Blog hop! We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world who are excited to share our creative paper crafting ideas with you. Today we are each focusing on inspiration found in the Annual catalog and CASEing it using new stamps, paper and tools that are available in the 2022 January-June Mini Catalog. I'm highlighting the Boughs & Blossoms Bundle along with the Flowering Fields 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper.

Timeless Tropical-CASE Catalog

It didn't take me long to decide to CASE (Copy and Share Everything) this card featuring the Timeless Tropical Bundle on page 21 in the Annual catalog.

NewAtSUHop-CASECatalog- Boughs Blossoms-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05310

My inspiration to feature the Boughs & Blossoms Bundle was based on the two individual flowers and leaves arrangement.  Super quick and easy to recreate!

NewAtSUHop-CASECatalog- Boughs Blossoms Flat-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05317-1

I love to include a bit of texture and dimension in each of my projects!  So, you could sort of say that I enhanced on the card I CASE'd by adding an additional layer of Poppy Parade cardstock that was embossed using the Stripes & Splatters Embossing Folder.  Since it's a mini folder, I did have to run it through my Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine twice.  The flowers were inked with Petal Pink and hand cut with my Paper Snips.  Before adding them to the card front with dimensionals, I threw in a large bow made with the Basic Black Backer's Twine.  This was to compliment the sentiment that was heat embossed with Black Embossing Powder onto a Pool Party strip.  My color palette were selected colors that coordinate with the Flowering Fields 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper pack.  So pretty!

Stampin' Up! Trip Achievers Blog Hop — Harvest Meadows Healing Thoughts

GV Blog Hop Banner-WesternCaribbean

Welcome to the Grand Vacation Trip Achievers Blog Hop for November. The theme for the hop is anything currently offered in our catalogs and we are all excited to share some beautifully handcrafted projects with you!

You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the previous person to me on the list. Please be sure to click the person after me to move along the blog hop. If you get off track at any time, the full line up below will help you move along from blog to blog.  I was inspired to create my card share from two different sources… a card pictured in the Mini Catalog (Page 54) and a non-Stampin’ Up’ card makers blog.

Harvest Meadows Sympathy-Watercolor RT-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC05074

Creative Tips:

  • I am using a mix of Stampin' Up!'s new papers listed with the Harvest Meadow Suite.  The Fall season is my utmost favorite season and the Harvest Meadow designer papers really hit the mark with a lovely combination of colors and patterns. I really love the Cork Specialty paper! I am still in awe how a paper can replicate the actual feel and texture of a sheet real cork!  I threw in a couple layers of Vellum cardstock to soften the patterns; and, die cut all layers with the same rounded Basic Borders Die.

Harvest Meadows Sympathy-Watercolor Supplies-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC05071

  • Bring on the watercolor!!  Instead of using the Harvest Dies to die cut straight from cardstock or designer paper, I decided to watercolor pieces of Basic White cardstock with Cajun Craze, Bumblebee and Soft Succulent ink.

Harvest Meadows Sympathy-Watercolor Close-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC05084

  • Once the paper had dried, dies run through my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine, I used my Soft Suede Stampin' Write marker to splatter ink onto the Fall elements. They were arranged and set in place with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Harvest Meadows Sympathy-Watercolor LT-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC05075

The sentiment comes from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set, inked with Soft Suede and stamped onto Basic White cardstock. Once die cut with label die from Harvest Dies set, it was added to the card front with Dimensionals.

PPX Crew Blog Hop — October Peaceful Christmas Alternate Holiday Cheer

PPXCrew-BlogHop-Header

Hello my stamping friends!  Welcome to another series of our PPX Crew Monthly Blog Hop!  I'm very happy for your visit here.  Our Crew is a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who are collaborating to create alternate projects using the supplies (plus, additional supplies) that come with our monthly Paper Pumpkin kits.  Each month, my Paper Pumpkin subscribers and members of my Stampin' Up! family of demonstrators receive exclusive tutorials to beautiful alternate projects created by our PPX Crew.  Well, now we are creating a 2nd alternate project that is being shared with everyone!

PPXHop-Oct Peaceful Christmas Step Card-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05030

1021_PP_THUMBNAIL

1021_PP_TOOLKIT_STAMPARTWORK

This month's blog hop features the beautiful Peaceful Christmas (October 2021) kit.  My project features a fun-fold technique called the Stair-step fold, which was inspired by some of the leftover element pieces I had saved away in the kit.  I'm also using a couple of stamp images from the set that were not used as part of the original card designs.

PPXHop-Oct Peaceful Christmas Step Card RT-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05031

Even though there were Shaded Spruce card bases included in the kit, I chose to use regular Shaded Spruce cardstock as I needed a base that was not pre-scored.  The Buffalo Check paper were leftover strips that I matted with Silver Foil Paper.  To highlight the card front, I cut one half of the Basic Gray festive cardbases down to 3-1/4 x 4 and matted with Silver Foil paper.  To compliment the card front, I cut the Basic Gray woodgrain element in half and layered on the 'front step' of the card.

PPXHop-Oct Peaceful Christmas Step Card Open-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05035

To create the Stair-step feature of your card, the Shaded Spruce cardbase is cut 1-inch inside of each long end starting at the 1-inch mark from one short end through to the 5-1/4" mark.  Then, take your scoring tool on your trimmer and score at 1", 2", 4-1/4" and 5-1/4".  The only section that is scored at the 4-1/4" mark is the section in the middle (do not score on the 1" side strips at 4-1/4".   The other score lines should only fall on the 1" strip on each long end side.  Score and burnish the folds to create a 'stair step' effect.  I inked the row of evergreen trees with Shaded Spruce ink (included with kit), stamped onto a piece of Basic White cardstock (3-1/4 x 4), and set in place to finish the inside of the card.

PPXHop-Oct Peaceful Christmas Step Card LT-Stampin Dreams-Lori Mueller-DSC05033

I used the Fancy Label Punch for the Peaceful Christmas sentiment, which was very similar to size and shape of the sentiment tags that were included with the kit.  The red banner element was adhered to the back of the sentiment tag and added to the card front using Dimensionals.  The final dressing of the card includes a glittering Enamel Gem and a little bow made from the Real Red Baker's Twine—both included in the kit.

At this time, you are now ready to hop on over to the next PPX Crew 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!

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.
 
Frightfully Cute Tombstone Treat Box-RIP Blood Moon-Stampin Dreams Lori Mueller-DSC04872
 
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.
