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.

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.

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'.

Stamp It Blog Hop — Wonder of the Season Memories & More Christmas

Hello stampers and crafty friends! I'm so happy you have stopped by.  Welcome to our end of November 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.

NovHop-TeamStampIt

Ready or not, this month's hop theme is all about the Christmas Holiday!  I'm trying to wrap my head around the fact that there are only 25 days to work on my Christmas cards.  I'm dragging my feet, but I've found a super simple AND cute system to help me get them done and out in the mail in no time at all.

StampItHop-Wonder of the Season Christmas Shaker-Lori-DSC03580
I love the Wonder of the Season Suite of products, but the Memories & More card pack  and the Wonder of the Season Memories & More Cards & Envelopes found in the August-December 2020 Mini catalog (page 31) are the prime target to help me create Christmas cards in record time.  The card pack comes with 48 pre-designed and printed cards in two sizes:  3" x 4" and 4" x 6".  Plus, there are some specialty cards, several sheets of stickers, and coordinating designer envelopes, too!  This particular pack includes multiples of the same pre-printed designs, which makes it nice for you to create small batches of the same card design.

StampItHop-Wonder of the Season Christmas Shaker Flat-Lori-DSC03566

Who doesn't love a good shaker card?  No one!  I trimmed the 4" x 6" Memories & More card by a 1/4" on each end to help spotlight the focal image with the Stitched Rectangles frame die cut from Shaded Spruce cardstock.  Because the 'greens' were pretty dominant, it needed some Real Red balance, so I added a strip of one of the foil cards to each end.

StampItHop-Wonder of the Season Christmas Shaker Joy-Lori-DSC03579

The Foam Adhesive Strips are the perfect width for the Shaded Spruce frame to build the shaker portion with a Window Sheet.  I was inspired to use the Sequins For Everything pack because of the groups of colored sequins are Green and Red.  A couple good pinches of each color were set in the middle of the focal image before adhering the shaker frame in place.  The "Joy" banner is one of the stickers that is part of the card pack...no additional adhesive needed to stick directly to the window sheet.

Would you like to create this fantastic Wonder of the Season Memories & More Christmas shaker 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 — A Quite Curvy Christmas Wreath

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  It's that time of year where we start planning for the biggest holiday of the year...Christmas!  Our amazing Creative Inking designers have a bundle of inspirational projects themed as "Christmas Cards".  You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the very talented Susan Campfields' 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've been aching to get my Curvy Christmas stamps inky and the bow branch image was the top of my list to use. 

CreativeInkingHop-CurvyChristmasWreath-Lori-DSC03491
 
In the back of my head, I remembered a card I designed for a past stamp class using an evergreen-type image.  So, I used that as my inspiration for today's card share.  I love to create non-traditional sized cards, and it's been a while since I've shown off a square card.  This one is 4-1/4" square and will fit perfectly into Stampin' Up!'s A2 sized envelopes.  The colors of Sahara Sand, Cherry Cobbler, and Shaded Spruce originate from the Classic Christmas Designer Series paper pack (also part of the Curvy Celebrations Suite).
 
CreativeInkingHop-CurvyChristmasWreathClose-Lori-DSC03496
 
I used my trusty Stamparatus to help create the perfectly aligned Shaded Spruce wreath.  Once you get the rotation pattern set, this will be a cinch to mass produce.  The Cherry Cobbler sprig die cuts were made with a die from the Curvy Dies.  This layout was calling for a dainty, yet rustic accessory, so I took some Linen Thread and unwound the fibers before tucking behind the Champagne Foil Layering Scallop Circle die cut.
 
CreativeInkingHop-CurvyChristmasWreathLeft-Lori-DSC03494
 

The sentiment was inked with Cherry Cobbler, stamped onto a strip of Whisper White and hand cut to form the wavy feature of the sentiment.  There needed to be some berries or 'ornaments' adorning the wreath, so I colored our Basic Pearls using the Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends and then scattered them throughout.  Simply lovely!

Want to know how this card came together?  Here's my Facebook Live demonstration I did today sharing tips and tricks on how it all went together.

In Good Taste Flag Honoring Men in Blue

Flag-BlueFallenHero

Hello my stamping friends!  Outside of papercrafting and making cards, I have dabbled in all types of crafting projects...even wood crafts.  Crafting with wood is a true labor of love and can speak volumes.  Someone I know hand crafted this wooden flag in recognition of a police officer in our city, who lost his life in the line of duty.  As soon as I saw it, I was inspired to create a handmade card.

InGoodTaste-HonorBlueFlag-Front-Lori-DSC02699

CASEing (Copy And Share Everything) the wood creation, I started with a Basic Black layer that is an 1/8" smaller than a typical A2 card (5-1/2" x 4-1/4") to set the focal design.  The wooden strips were chosen from a pattern in the In Good Taste Designer Series paper pack, making sure that I cut the strips going 'with the grain'.  The Misty Moonlight strip symbolizes and recognizes a fallen hero within our city law enforcement agency.

InGoodTaste-HonorBlueFlag-StarSequins-Lori-DSC02706

It took me a bit to figure out how I was going to replicate the 50 stars.  There are several different die sets that include stars, but they were either too big, or were going to be labor intensive with all the die cutting.  As I was flipping through the new August-December 2020 Mini catalog, I came across the Snowflake Sequins image and happened to notice there were STARS in the mix!  YAY!!  Boy, am I glad this product was a "Returning Fav" from the previous years Holiday catalog!

InGoodTaste-HonorBlueFlag-50StarsSequins-Lori-DSC02707

The Basic Black panel for the stars measures 3-1/4" x 2-1/4".  The Fine Tip Glue Pen and Take Your Pick Tool saved the day to make the process go quickly setting all 50 stars.

InGoodTaste-HonorBlueFlag-FlatBlueRibbon-Lori-DSC02710

After evenly spacing the In Good Taste designer paper and Misty Moonlight strips to the Basic Black panel, I wrapped some Misty Moonlight 1/4" Ribbon around the cardstock strip and tied into a knot.  The whole panel was adhered to a Basic Black cardbase with Stampin' Seal.

InGoodTaste-HonorBlueFlag-LT-Lori-DSC02701

The panel of stars was set in place with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I chose to leave this card without a sentiment, as I felt the whole design spoke for itself.  I will be making several of these to package and send to the family with my sincerest thoughts and prayers.  May God hold them close and bring peace to their hearts.

Want to know how this card came together?  Here's my Facebook Live demonstration I did last Sunday sharing tips and tricks for putting it all together.

 

If you enjoyed this card, 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'.

Stamp It Blog Hop — Summer Patriotic Themed Tags

Hello stampers and crafty friends! I'm so happy you are here.  Welcome to our Stamp It Blog Hop in June!  You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from one of the other Stamp It members blog...either way, make sure to click the blog next in line to move along the hop and not miss a beat.

Stamp-it-summer-loving-blog-hop

This month's hop share is all about Summer and/or a Patriotic theme.  Considering the 4th of July is exactly 2 weeks from today, I thought I'd better get this idea I've been dreaming about for weeks out onto cardstock.  I'm super excited to share it with you!

StampItHop-PlayfulAlphabetUSAFlatDies-Lori-DSC02304
The 2" x 5" tag base is made up of Crumb Cake cardstock with a layer of In Good Taste designer paper patterns.  I love the idea that the pattern is a photo of a 'real' brick wall and made into designer series paper.  The scalloped design at the top was done by the Delightful Tag Topper punch.

StampItHop-PlayfulAlphabetUSATagU-Lori-DSC02317

There's a brand new product in the Annual catalog that is super fun — Foam Adhesive Sheets!  I used the Playful Alphabet Dies to cut out the individual letters from Real Red, Misty Moonlight and Whisper White cardstock, then die cut each from the Foam Adhesive Sheets.  Peel off the front and stick the corresponding letter to it.  It creates the coolest 3D embellishment.

StampItHop-PlayfulAlphabetUSATagS-Lori-DSC02316

I used the Simply Scored Tool to score an 11" x 1/2" strip of cardstock (Real Red, Misty Moonlight and Whisper White) every 1/4".  Then fan-fold at the score marks to create an accordion piece.  Adhere the ends together using Stampin' Seal+, then center them onto the tag spacing evenly vertically.

StampItHop-PlayfulAlphabetUSATagA-Lori-DSC02315

Peel off the back layer of each foam letter and adhere to a Stitch Stars Die; then adhere to the accordion pin-wheel.  Add a piece of each Misty Moonlight 1/4" Ribbon and Whisper White 1/4" Crinkled Seam Binding to the tag top and finish off with Linen Thread tied into a bow.

Would you like to create this super cute Patriotic Tag?  I have posted the entire supply list below and made it easy for you to click on any of the images to add to your shopping cart from my online store.  I would be so very grateful to you and your support for shopping with me.  Check out my Dreamers Loyalty Reward Program...I love what I do and very much appreciate YOU.  So, I pay it back and reward my loyal customers with a FREE shopping spree. You fill my cup!

For more Summer or Patriotic themed creations that I'm sure will be favorites for you to try, make sure you hop on over to the next Stamp It Group members blogs to see what amazing creations they have to share.  Thank you so much for stopping by....stop back again real soon.

Creative Inking Blog Hop — Featuring 2020-21 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  Today our amazing Creative Inking designers have created an inspiring group of projects themed as "New Annual Catalog Favorites".  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.

Ever since the new 2020-2022 In Colors were announced with the release of the New Annual Idea Book & Catalog, I have not been able to leave them alone.  They are showing up in every one of my card creations.  Eeeek!  That's a good thing, right?  Well, right now, that is my FAV-or-ite products in the new catalog.  They are scrumptious!
 
CreativeInkingHop-TastefulTouchesHelloRT-Lori-DSC01939
I decided it was time to play with the Tasteful Touches Bundle...versus letting it sit in the last shipment of new goodies.  ACK!  I had already played with the In Good Time Designer Series paper on another project, but it is part of the Suite tied to this stamp set and die bundle, so it was fitting to enjoy them all on one card.
TastefulTouchesBundle-154098G 2020-2022InColorEnamelDots-152480G

I've already made up my mind that the Tasteful Labels Dies are going to be a new FAV and go-to die for sentiments, background layers, focal images...you name it, it's gonna land on a lot of my projects.  Look at the pearl-i-ness of those 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots.  Sooo pretty!  With 20 of each color, you can adorn a good number of projects before running out....quite economical.

CreativeInkingHop-TastefulTouchesHello-Lori-DSC01931
I'm needing to touch base with some dear friends, and the sentiment that was clear embossed with Misty Moonlight ink is the perfect way to do that.  The handwritten sentiment has a few of the letters that look like my handwriting.  Loving the personal touch that will be added to my card without writers cramps!  haha  The leaf branch was inked in Crumb Cake and Bumblebee, but each was the 3rd rendition of ink.  Meaning, I inked the image, stamped off on scrap paper two times, and stamped the 3rd time in place on the Very Vanilla layer.  I just wanted a subtle image so that it would not steal away from the focal point of the sentiment.

CreativeInkingHop-TastefulTouchesHelloFlatClose-LoriDSC01933

The 1/4" Bumblebee Gingham Trim finishes off the seam with the In Good Taste Designer paper; and, adds to the rustic feel from the woodgrain pattern.  It is lovely to work with and slips into a bow very smoothly.  Besides adding the enamel dots throughout the layout, I decided to do a little faux spritzing of Magenta Madness and Misty Moonlight using the marker tip flicked from the Stampin' Write Marker cap.

Now, if you have ever thought about getting more for your money purchasing all of your favorite Stampin' Up! products, I highly recommend that you purchase the "Happy Shopper" Starter Kit and save 20% with each purchase.  There really isn't anything to lose...only lots of product to gain!  But, until you make that leap to join my Stampin' Up! family and fill your starter kit with new Annual catalog products.  If you wish to start creating my project, you'll find the ingredients listed below.  I've set it up super easy for you to click on any of the images and add to your shopping cart in my online store.  I would be so very grateful to you and your support for shopping with me.  Check out my Dreamers Loyalty Reward Program...I love what I do and very much appreciation YOU.  So, I pay it back and reward my loyal customers with a FREE shopping spree.

Memorial Day Thank You to America's Heros

Happy Memorial Day stampers!!

MemorialDay-ThankYouFlagDieCard-Lori-DSC01599

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

MemorialDayThankYouFlagSponge-Lori-DSC01598

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

MemorialDayThankYouFlagDie-Close-Lori-DSC01594

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

MemorialDayThankYouFlagDieFlat-Lori-DSC01593

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

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