Hello stampers and crafty friends! I'm so happy you are here.  Welcome to our September 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.

Sept2016-TeamStampIt

This month's hop theme is a selection that I find easy to create...Halloween & Fall!  They really go hand-in-hand...pumpkins of all sizes and changing colors in the leaves.  The only exception is that the Fall season really isn't all that spooky and scary.  :)

StampItHop-PlayfulHalloweenLT-Lori-DSC02771
I decided to go with a clean and simple card that didn't include any stamping.  Eeeek!  Sometimes, you just gotta let the beautiful designer series paper and framelits do all the talking.  The subtle pattern in this Cajun Craze piece from the Magic In This Night Designer Series paper pack is my favorite and is matted with Blackberry Bliss.

StampItHop-PlayfulHalloweenBoo-Lori-DSC02773

The main focal point is made up of a layer of Metallic Mesh Ribbon, a Blackberry Bliss Ornate Frames die, a Silver Foil Ornate Frames die, and topped with the Playful Alphabet die cut from Black Glitter paper.  The Silver Foil portion was popped up with Black Stampin' Dimensionals.

The silver shine from the Metallic Mesh Ribbon and the glitter from the word 'BOO' is the perfect subtle combination to create a fun, spooky Halloween.

Creative Inking Blog Hop — Falling In Love With Fall

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  Today our amazing Creative Inking designers have created an inspiring group of projects themed as "Fall In Love With Fall".  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.

Recently, I asked a question on my Stampin' Dreams with Lori customer page if there was one thing you could give up, which one would it be?  Resoundingly, the answer was COFFEE!  Yikes!  Some people had never tried it and some tried drinking coffee and didn't like it; therefore, won't be touching the 'stuff' again.  LOL!

CreativeInkingHop-PressOnCoffeeTinFront-Lori-DSC02759
 
With that being said, I decided my project covering our theme would include COFFEE!  Teehehe!  I know, I'm such a rebel. LOL!  There's a new stamp set called Press On, that is perfect for the next point I want to make.  This stamp set includes images of coffee cups and coffee beans, buuuut, you can also use the coffee cups for hot tea, too. :)  I also have been aching to use my new Rectangle Tins that will hold a variety of chocolates, note cards, small gifts of jewelry, candies, etc.
 
CreativeInkingHop-PressOnCoffeeTinLT-Lori-DSC02763
 
Instead of creating a belly band, I went with decorating the top of the tin.  The closure is very secure, so I was safe knowing the lid will not open on it's own without a little help.  It is Pumpkin Latte season, so I chose to use a Pumpkin Pie cardstock matte to one of the lovely patterns found in the Plaid Tidings 6" x 6" Designer Series paper pack.  The Detailed Trio punch was perfect to match with the rounded corners on the tin.
 
 
CreativeInkingHop-PressOnCoffeeTinRT-Lori-DSC02761

The focal arrangement uses a die from the Wreath Builder Dies set cut from Shaded Spruce cardstock.  It fits perfectly around the 2-3/8" Layering Circle die cut from Vellum.  The coffee/tea/hot chocolate cup image was inked in Soft Suede and stamped onto Very Vanilla.  I inked a second time and stamped the center 'sleeve' onto Soft Suede cardstock, but out and glued in place on the original image.  There are no dies or punches that coordinate with the Press On stamp set, so you'll have to 'fussy cut' (hand cut with Paper Snips) the cut image.

 

CreativeInkingHop-PressOnCoffeeTinSupplies-Lori-DSC02756

Add the cup to the center of the wreath section with Stampin' Dimensionals.  The sentiment was stamped onto a Pumpkin Pie strip using Soft Suede ink, glued to the center of the 'sleeve', and garnished with a Linen Thread bow.  Adhere the whole panel to the top of the tin using Stampin' Seal+ adhesive.  Fill the tin with your gift of choice.  I found these wonderful Krispy Kreme Cappuccino Coffee Thins — 4 of them fit beautifully inside.  YUM!

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.

Stamp It Blog Hop — Happy Fall Y'all Candy Topper

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

August2016-TeamStampIt-Header

This month's hop theme is one of my favorites—Happy Fall!  But, Fall can capture so many different aspects of the season...leaves, pumpkins, harvested crops, and cool, crisp mornings.

StampItHop-EverythingEssential-FallTopperFront-Lori-DSC02681
One of my favorite Fall projects is to create tag toppers for yummy chocolates and snacks.  I mean, really, look at that CUTE pumpkin smiling right back at you adorning that tag topper!  I chose to incorporate two new stamp sets found in the August-December 2020 Mini catalogEverything Essential and Banner Year.  Both sets have a corresponding punch bundled with them, but I chose to use them just for the images.  They compliment each other well using smaller sentiments with single images.

StampItHop-EverythingEssential-FallTopperRT-Lori-DSC02685

Using the candy wrapper as my color palette, I saw coordinating Stampin' Up! colors — Granny Apple Green, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze and Whisper White.  Isn't that funny how we relate all things in the retail world to the Stampin' Up! color families?  LOVE it!  The Granny Apple Green and Plaid Tidings designer paper tag topper was created using a couple of layers of dies from the Celebration Labels Dies set.  The pumpkin image was inked with Cajun Craze, stamped onto Pumpkin Pie and die cut using the Layering Circles Dies.  To accent the shiny candy wrapper, the image is matted with a scalloped Brushed Cardstock layer with 'messy' nest of Gold Linen Thread from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo pack.

StampItHop-EverythingEssential-FallTopperLT-Lori-DSC02684

The sentiment is one of my favorites...Happy fall, y'all!  Although, I really don't talk that way in real life...only when I'm adding a pun to a conversation or spicing up a greeting with a group of friends.  :)

StampItHop-EverythingEssential-FallTopper-Lori-DSC02679

The fun thing about this style of treat packaging is that your recipient will see the beautiful tag BEFORE they divulge into the chocolate candies, right?!!  Haha!
