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!

Ornate Garden Thank You — Color Challenge

OrnateGardenHeader-Image-CM1110290B

Oh my goodness!  Have you seen it?  Stampin' Up! has decided to release a fabulous suite of brand new products—EARLY—called Ornate Garden Suite.  It's a vintage, floral suite with a cheerful spring theme, plus the variety and scope of its beautiful, coordinating products.

OrnateGardenSpecialtyDSP-Image

The lovely floral patterns in the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper remind me of the Victorian era.  If you love sparkle and elegance, you'll find it with the gold foil accented paper, gems, and shimmery ribbon. I'm certain you’ll love what you can do with this versatile collection. My favorite is the ability to pair any of the sentiments to express my gratitude for others in each of my projects.

ColorChallenge-Week1

To inspire my crafty friends across the miles and team members to stamp and create, I posted a Color Challenge.  It included six different colors from Stampin' Up!'s color families:  Terracotta Tile, Grapefruit Grove, Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight, Coastal Cabana, and Bermuda Bay.  Their project could include 1 color...or all 6 that would include ink, cardstock, designer papers, ribbons and accessories.  Once the project was done, then upload to share with everyone.

OrnateGarden-ColorChallenge1-Lori-DSC01283

Since Terracotta Tile is listed as one of the coordinating colors designed in the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series paper, I wanted to see if I could incorporate 2 other colors from the color challenge — Daffodil Delight and Coastal Cabana.  I just love the Gold Foiled patterns that open themselves up for any color combinations you choose.

NEW VIDEO:  How to use a color challenge with Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper

I did an online stamp class demonstrating the details of my card during a Facebook Live (Lori Dreams Stampin).  Click and Subscribe to my Youtube Channel—I'm working diligently to upload more of my live online classes  If you are needing any supplies I've used, they are all listed at the end of this post.  I am sooo grateful to you for shopping with me.

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. You fill my cup!



 

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. 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.  :)

Stamping Around The World — Christmastime Is Here for Sharing Handmade Gifts

AroundTheWorld-CountryBlogHop-Header

Hello, and good morning!  If you've been traveling along the Stamping Around The World Blog Hop, or, if this is your very first stop, I want to thank you so much for stopping to visit me Lori Mueller, Stampin' Dreams. If you like to skip and hop and happen to get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog...you definitely want to make sure you  see all of the amazing creations shared by the design team.

SATWHop-ChristmastimeNotebookFront-Lori-DSC00379

It's craft fair season, which means that I am crafting up a storm preparing beautiful gift items for purchase in my booth.  One of my favorite things to do is repurpose items I find in Dollar bins, clearance shelves, and any recyclable jars/tins/boxes that come through the doors of my home.  I found a few chipboard notebooks that were perfect for 'redecorating" the plain-jane covers.  And the timing of our new Christimastime Is Here Suite of products couldn't have been better.  It is filled with lovely papers and embellishments that stem from a two-part stamp set and coordinating set of dies. LOVE it!

SATWHop-ChristmastimeNotebook-Close-Lori-DSC00378

The Christmastime Is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper is absolutely stunning.  You get 4 each of 3 double-sided sheets with one side inlaid with gold foil and the other is a subtle, muted pattern.  I love the fact that there are 4 sheets to help me mass produce more of the same project.  I held my Facebook Live presentation showing how to convert a simple notebook into a remarkable thing of beauty...simple and easy!  You can watch my step-by-step demonstration here:

Christmastime Is Here Altered Notebook Facebook Live video

 

SATWHop-ChristmastimeNotebookFlat-LoriDSC00376

I'll tuck this gem into a cello bag and secure with more Gold Shimmer ribbon tied into a bow and offer these notebooks as the perfect gift for any school teacher, colleague, BFF, or relative.  I hope you'll give this project a whirl...you'll be sooo happy you did! :)

Stamping Around The World — Daisy Lane Flower Fun

 

AroundTheWorld-CountryBlogHop-Header

 

Hello, and good morning!  If you've been traveling along the Stamping Around The World Blog Hop, or, if this is your very first stop, I want to thank you so much for stopping to visit me Lori Mueller, Stampin' Dreams. If you like to skip and hop and happen to get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog...you definitely want to make sure you  see all of the amazing creations shared by the design team.

 

SATWHop-DaisyLaneInColorClubCardLeft-Lori-DSC09971

The style or technique of my card share is called "Monochromatic".  That means that the whole creation uses the same colors or color shades throughout all facets of the design...from cardstock and designer series paper to ink and accessories.  I'm a huge fan of the new 2019-2021 In Color called Rococo Rose.  Super pretty; and I can't wait to start pairing it up with other colors within the other color families.

 

SATWHop-DaisyLaneInColorClubCardFlat-Lori-DSC09972

 

I've got a great tip on how to save cardstock when punching LOTS of Daisies with the Daisy punches.  The day I held my Facebook Live presentation showing how to save cardstock and stamp the images using the Stamparatus, my phone overheated, so my video is broken into 2 segments.  You can see them here:

The whole time I was creating the Rococo Rose In Color card, I was already pushing forward to create the same card using the rest of the new 2019-2021 In Colors.  I made these for my In Color Club members to receive with their particular In Color of the month products.  It's my little gift for being a club member; and it shows them a card layout they can CASE using the new In Color supplies they purchased...cardstock, Designer Series paper, inks and embellishments.  Next months club card will feature a different stamp set using only the 2019-2021 In Colors, so stay tuned.  Better yet, if you would like to join my In Color Club, send me an email and I'll send you the details on how to sign up for club.

For The Love of Felt — Stamp & Scrapbook The Longest Day for Alzheimer's fundraiser

LongestDayAlzheimersGroup-June2018-Lori-DSC06685
What is "The Longest Day"?  It is the day with the most light — the summer solstice, which is June 21st.  This is a time when thousands of participants from across the world — including my team of papercrafters — fight the darkness of Alzheimer's through an activity, and in our case, stamping cards and creating scrapbook pages.  Together, we use our creativity and passion to raise funds and awareness for the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.

This will be my 4th year participating in The Longest Day to show my love for all those affected by Alzheimer's disease.  This weekend (June 22-23), I am joining others around the world doing what I love, to honor people living with Alzheimer's, their caregivers, and those lost to the disease, while raising funds and awareness to advance the care, support research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.  I am doing this in honor of my dear friends' Mothers; and in memory of Jerry Johnson, a dear Colleague who lost his battle to this disease in 2015.

Alzheimers2018-GoodieBags-Lori-DSC06672

Each participant receives a goodie bag with a personalized name tag.  Last year, I was obsessed with the butterfly from the Springtime Impressions die set.  I continue to crave using the Stitched Shapes dies on almost every project...in all sorts of colors!  LOL!

AlzheimersFlowers-DaisyPunch-Lori

Do you recognize the stamp set and tool I used to create this beautiful bouquet?  Yessss!  It is the Daisy Delight stamp set and regular Daisy punch.  I'm mixing up this year's center piece, so stay tuned for it's reveal in a later post.  Sooo excited!

Alzheimers2018-MNTCard-Lori-DSC06662

There's always a lot more fun at any event when you provide supplies for a Make-n-Take card project.  My die cutting machine got quite the workout prepping...so did my right arm!  Haha!  I'm very happy the Stitched Labels and Layering Ovals dies were carried over into the new Annual catalog.

Alzheimers2018-LargeCookie-Lori-DSC06680

I have been fortunate to be awarded a nice donation of baked goods each year from Sam's Club.  When we sit down to papercraft for long periods of time, we need an adrenaline boost loaded with sugar!  Can you tell, I'm a papercrafter?  I even had to put my spin on a 'card layout' for the Bakery staff to decorate this yummy cookie.  They did awesome, don't you think?!!

HOW CAN YOU HELP US END ALZHEIMER'S?

During the 2-day crafting retreat, participants have the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets and slip them into the bucket representing the prize(s) they hope to win!  Prizes range from various Stampin' Up! product bundles, Roskag cart, and the biggest prize is a weekend retreat for a group of friends!  100% of the proceeds from raffle ticket sales go directly to the Alzheimer's Association.  Our team goal is to raise $1,000.

ForTheLoveOfFelt-DonationGraphic-Lori

I want to do more to help End Alzheimer's!  The new For The Love of Felt stamp set and Project Kit really speaks to me this year...maybe, it's because it is a phrase that I'm familiar with growing up as a kid..."for the love of..." and then we'd finish "why are there so many bugs"? or whatever the inquisitive situation was at the time.  Currently, more than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's disease, and 16 million are serving as their caregivers. Sooo, "For The Love of Felt", why are sooo many people diagnosed with Alzheimer's?  What is happening to our brains?

I want to help End Alzheimer's, and could use your help because these numbers will only continue to rise unless we take action.  For each For The Love of Felt stamp set (Item #149650) and Project Kit (Item #149507) purchased together through my online store using Host Code 9JSHGF7Z, I will donate $10 of that purchase to the Alzheimer's Association. PLUS, with your purchase, your name will go into a drawing for a wonderful Stampin' Up! bundle...Above The Clouds stamp set and coordinating Balloon Bouquet punch.  Offer valid June 16-30, 2019. Drawing to be held on July 1st.

**This special donation event (The Longest Day) is not sponsored by Stampin' Up!, it is solely valid through me, Lori Mueller.

Alzheimer-HostCode

NOT A PAPER CRAFTER, BUT WANT TO HELP END ALZHEIMER'S?

That's awesome!!  Visit our Team page to submit your donation.  Your donation to the Alzheimer's Association for The Longest Day is 100% tax deductible.  Under the United States tax law, the Alzheimer's Assocation is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt nonprofit organization.  Donors who write a check made out to the Alzheimer's Association, or who give by credit card online and include their name and mailing address, will receive a receipt once the donation has been processed.

DONATE NOW TO END ALZHEIMER'S

 

To see what the For The Love Of Felt kit is all about, click on the video I did during a Facebook Live session. It's a beautiful set of cards that is perfect for a new papercrafter, as well as, the casual and avid crafters.

OSAT Blog Hop — April Spring Fling

Hello stampers and paper crafters!  My name is Lori Mueller (stampindreams.com) and I want to welcome you to my blog and the April One Stamp At a Time (OSAT) Design Team Blog Hop!  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.

This month's theme is "Spring Fling", and oh, how I wish Spring would come around and plant itself solid.  But, noooo, we have more cold weather, sleet and snow in the forecast today.  YUCK!

OSATHop-HoldOnToHopeOvalRt-Lori-DSC09639

I've been having lots of fun playing with a stamp set and framelits dies bundle that has not received any attention from me since it arrived in my craft stash.  YIKES!  The Hold on to Hope stamp set was designed by a million dollar achiever, Brandi Cox, and coordinates with the Cross of Hope set of framelit dies.  Several of the images rendered different Spring-like color choices...Mango Melody, Highland Heather, Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight and Flirty Flamingo.

I came across a really cool technique that is new to me called "Floating Frame".  The benefit of this technique is that you can create two different card layouts with the one arrangement.  You can click on the images to get a closer look at how the butterfly and flower images "float" on the stitched Pear Pizzazz oval using Stampin' Dimensionals.

OSATHop-HoldOnToHopeOvalLeft-Lori-DSC09641

To add a some light texture to the arrangement, I embossed a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder.  The Grapefruit Grove strip of Gingham Designer Series Paper gives it a vintage/country ambiance.  I just love how this turned out...the butterflies actually look like they are 'floating' around the oval ready to land on one of the beautiful flowers.

I did a Facebook Live online demonstration assembling the 'floating frame' card together.  It is an unedited video, but you can see how the process is done and apply the same steps to the card I am sharing with you today.  If you enjoy online stamp classes, please Like and Follow my business Facebook page so that you'll receive notifications for all my Live events...Sunday Stampin' Dreams.  I'd love to have you join me as I share what I love to do...stamp and papercraft! 

 


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!

Halloween Frights and Delights Homemade Designer Paper

PP-FrightsDelightsNotecardBoo-Lori-DSC07950

I was preparing for a craft fair this last weekend and had made up all of my September Paper Pumpkin Frights and Delights treat bags to hand out to shoppers stopping by my booth.  Now that those are all gone, what do you have left in your Paper Pumpkin box?  The stamp set, ink spot, and other extra pieces from the kit, right?  What do you do with those items — pack up and store them for a rainy day (although, it's been raining in my area for 4 days straight!)?  OR, do you keep playing and making new stuff?

PP-FrightsDelightsNotecard-Lori-DSC07941

Normally, my stamp sets and ink spots get put to the side while I feverishly work on my next projects, but not this time!  I wanted to show myself that there is still lots of life in these amazing images by creating my own "Designer Series Paper"!  That's right!  Have you ever noticed that there isn't any decorative patterned paper to play with?


FrightsDelights-StampSet

In true color, Basic Gray Classic ink will appear much darker than what you see on my card.  To avoid stealing the eye from the sentiment focal point, I inked up the various images, stamped off one time, then stamped onto the Whisper White layer.  I did the same with the Pumpkin Pie Jack-o-Lantern, too.  Now the spider and bat were full ink, but because they are small, it gave some contrast to the "designer paper" I was creating.

 

PP-FrightsDelightsNotecardFlat-Lori-DSC07948
There were, at least, half a dozen of the 'Boo!' stickers leftover from the kit, plus, lots of Black/Silver Baker's Twine to help adorn the focal image.  The Everyday Label punch made a quick background layer for the Pumpkin Pie Stitched Shapes Square.  A nice accent to show off the sticker, too.  Stinkin' cute!!

Even though the kit contained all of the supplies to create 24 adorable Halloween treat bags, I enjoyed using the leftover supplies, and a few of my own, to create my own spooktacular fun!
