Party Pandas Animals Blog Hop

The-Remarkable-Inkbig-Blog-Hop

Hi Stampers.  Welcome back for another Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop!  This time around we are playing with “Lions and Tigers and Bears – Oh My!!”.  Stampin’ Up! projects made featuring animals!  I chose to use the Party Pandas – one of the many FREE Sale-A-Bration items.

Stampin' Up! Party Pandas and Bubbles and Fizz DSP 2018 Sale-A-Bration items by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

When I started this card, I knew I wanted to use the Party Panda stamp set and the Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper that are both part of the 2018 Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration products.  By using one of the Stampin’ Up! DSPs, choosing what colors to use was easy.  I had four choices – Calypso Coral, Basic Gray, Daffodil Delight, Bermuda Bay and Lemon Lime Twist.  Any of them would have looked awesome with this card.  I chose to use a Bermuda Bay card base and layered a 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ layer of DSP.  This gave me a 1/8″ border, rather than my normal 1/4″ border.

To make the DSP stand out, I used a smaller than normal center layer of Whisper White card stock – it is 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″.  I then used a 1″ x 3 1/2″ strip of the same DSP and just flipped it over and used the back side as a stripe across the Whisper White.  This gave my pandas something to “sit/stand” on.  I stamped the pandas using my Misti and Memento Black ink (as I, not so patiently, wait for my Stamparatus to arrive).  This allowed me to ink and stamp the bears twice in exactly the same spot making the black much darker than just stamping once.  I tried to make it look like the panda in the hat was jumping – it didn’t work out as well on paper as it looked in my head. 😛

The balloon was colored with Calypso Coral stampin’ blends and the party hat with the Daffodil Delight stampin’ blends.  I used a little bit of the lighter of the Basic Gray stampin’ blend for a shadow under the feet.  The happy birthday was stamped in Bermuda Bay ink and the confetti was stamped with Island Indigo ink.

My choice of project to CASE from the catalog is the Barn Door card on page 43 of the 2018 Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog.  I just love the look of this card AND the fact that the door moves from side to side.

I have been asked by a customer to have a class on how to make this card.  So I have scheduled that – if you are local you can register HERE.  If you are not in the area, but have the stamp set (or wish to purchase it – links below) you can purchase it as a “class to go”.  For a “class to go”, I mail you all the pieces of card stock that you need along with PDF instructions and you can make the card at home with your own stamps and supplies.

Epic Celebration Mix & Match Blog Tour

Remarkably Creative Blog Tour badge

Hi Stampers. Are you ready for an Epic Celebration?!?!  I have just the card for the greatest kid in the universe!

I’m sorry I’ve been MIA for a while.  I had an episode of really high blood pressure that sent me to the doctors about a month ago.  I came away with blood pressure medication AND a horrible cold (or the flu) I’m still trying to shake the last of.

Today I’m playing along with the RemARKably Creative Blog Tour and we are doing a mix and match theme.  We were asked to mix something new with something from the 2017-2018 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.  I chose to mix the new Epic Celebrations Sale-A-Bration stamp set with the Five For All stamp set from the annual catalog.  I made a birthday card for my granddaughter.  Her birthday was February 7th, the day after mine.

Stampin' Up! kids handmade birthday card made using Sale-A-Bration 2018 Epic Celebrations and Annual Catalog Five For All stamp sets by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card started with a Dapper Denim card base, 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″.  Next up was a 4″ x 5 1/4″ layer of Pool Party card stock (CS).  I used the shoes from Epic Celebration to stamp the shoes randomly on that layer in Pool Party ink and the dots from the same set were randomly stamped in Smoky Slate ink.  Next I used the Basic Gray shimmer ribbon and attached it with glue dots and layered a Dapper Denim scalloped circle over that with stampin’ dimensionals and a stitched shapes Whisper White circle over that with snail adhesive.  The sentiment from the Five for All stamp set was stamped onto the Whisper White circle in Dapper Denim ink.

Inside the card is a 4″ x 5 1/4″ layer of Whisper White.  I stamped the inside sentiment from the Five for All stamp set in Dapper Denim ink.  The guitar from the Epic Celebration stamp set was stamped in memento black ink and colored with the Stampin’ Blends Markers (Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Smoky Slate).

Party Pandas Valentine Blog Hop

The-Remarkable-Inkbig-Blog-Hop

Hi Stampers.

The Party Pandas send their love and welcome you to the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop for January 2018. This month our theme is Valentines!  You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog or may have come from the person previous to me on the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects.

Stampin' Up! Party Pandas Sale-A-Bration 2018 Valentine Shaker card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I make my Valentine a shaker card!  I started with a Powder Pink card base – 11″ x 4-1/4″ , scored at 5-1/2″.  Next up is a 4″ x 5 1/3″ piece of Bundle of Love DSP.  The heart was cut from the middle using one of the heart framelits from the Sweet & Sassy framelit dies.  I then placed the DSP over the card base and used liquid glue to glue the heart down in place. Use clear accetate to cover the heart in the top shape. (Adhere from the back to hide the edges and adhesive.)

Next I used the foam adhesive strips to create the “well” to hold the dazzling diamonds glitter in place.  I used the foam adhesive strips around the outer edge as well.  (Note: don’t use Stampin’ dimensionals – they are not the same height.  Take it from one who knows… LOL). After the strips are in place, add the glitter.  Then remove the backing and carefully place the top layer over the card base.  I stamped the panda bear with the balloon.  and then placed a post it note over the panda and stamped the balloon two more times – so he had a set of 3 balloons. The “I love you” sentiment from the same set was then stamped inside each balloon

I stamped the little panda with the love not on the inside of the card.  To me a card is not “finished” until it has a little something on the inside.

It’s a Magical Day for a Bundle Up Blog Tour

Remarkably Creative Blog Tour badge

Hi Stampers.

It’s a Magical Day! Welcome back to another Remarkably Creative Blog tour.  This time around we were asked to use our favorite bundle from the new 2018 Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog.  There was no question in my mind, I wanted to use the Magical Day bundle. It’s totally adorable and fit for a Queen!  It’s also fabulous to color with the new Stampin’ Blends Markers!

Stampin' Up! Magical Day Castle card in a box made by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations with unicorns, knights, dragon, mermaids & a wizard

The card in a box is one of my favorites.  My very first YouTube video ever was a card in a box card.  I’ve also created a PDF tutorial to go along with another blog post.

Stampin' Up! Magical Day Castle card in a box made by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations with unicorns, knights, dragon, mermaids & a wizard

The base is Basic Gray and then I used Smokey Slate.  The Smokey Slate layer was cut and then put through the Big Shot with the brick wall embossing folder. For the top of the castle I used a 1″ x 3″ strip of Basic Gray and dry embossed them with the brick wall embossing folder and then held the two together back to back and cut the little merlons (raised stonework) myself with paper snips. I then attached one to the front and one to the back of the top of the card.

Stampin' Up! Magical Day Castle card in a box made by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations with unicorns, knights, dragon, mermaids & a wizard

The characters (knights, dragon, wizard and mermaids) were stamped onto scraps of Whisper White CS with Memento Black ink and colored the with the Stampin’ Blends Markers.  They more I play with those markers the more I love them!  I then die cut them out with the Big Shot and the coordinating Magical Mates framelit dies.  For the sentiment, I colored the stamp with the Elegant Eggplant and Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Write markers onto Whisper White CS. The framelit didn’t quite fit.  So, I layed it over the image and traced around the outside with a pencil and cut it out with my paper snips.

Stampin' Up! Magical Day Castle card in a box made by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations with unicorns, knights, dragon, mermaids & a wizard

Every castle needs a mote filled with water!  The coordinating Myths and Magic Specialty Designer Series Paper (cut into 1-/2″ strips) was perfect to make waves of water around the base of the castle.  I didn’t even realize there were little waves dies in the Magical Mates framelits.  When I saw this scallop in the Seasonal Layers framelit dies I just thought it would make perfect “WAVES” and this was my chance to put my idea in motion.

Stampin' Up! Magical Day Castle card in a box made by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations with unicorns, knights, dragon, mermaids & a wizard

I adhered the waves by using Fast Fuse adhesive around the bottom of the waves.  After the waves were attached I inserted the mermaids and adhered them with mini glue dots. I made a custom 5-1/2″ x 6″ envelope to fit this card using the envelope punch board.

Who wouldn’t love to get a card that pops up into all these magical day characters?  I hope it encourages you to make your wish list from the 2018 Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog and picking out your FREE limited edition exclusive Sale-A-Bration items.  Or better yet get the Ultimate Bundle (with no risk or obligation) and become Creative Royalty! Who wouldn’t want to get up to $226 in product for just $99!  It’s a no brainer – right?!?!

This card starts with a Basic Black card base, 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″.  Next I attached a layer of Cherry Cobbler card stock that is 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″,  followed by a 4 1/2″ x 3 1/4″ layer of Whisper White CS.  I then used the Big Shot and the Large Letter Framelit dies to die cut the latter I and U from scraps of Basic Black CS.  The Sweet and Sassy framelit dies were used to cut the heart out of Red Glimmer Paper.  The letters were attached with glue dots and the heart was attached with stampin’ dimensionals.

Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop

Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop Badge

Hi Stampers.  Today I’m hopping with the Global Stamping Friends.  We are all kicking off Stampin’ Up! 2018 Sale-a-Bration!  There are SO MANY wonderful new products in the 2018 Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog that I can’t stand it!  Today I’m playing with two bundles.  The Magical Day bundle and the Sunshine and Rainbows bundle.  For added fun I’ve colored with the new Stampin’ Blends.

2018 Stampin Up occasions sushine and rainbows builder magical day unicorn and rainbow card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Since we are galloping through the clouds it was only right to start out with a Soft Sky card base.  I then cut a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of whisper white and sponged Soft Sky ink all over it.  The Rainbow Builder Framelits were used to die cut the rainbow using scraps of cardstock (CS). (Colors used were Flirty Flamingo, Peakaboo Peach, Daffodil Delight, Lemon Lime Twist, Bermuda Bay, Tempting Turquoise and Sweet Sugarplum.)  The clouds were die cut from the same framlit set in Whisper White CS and the edges were sponged with Soft Sky ink.

Using the Sunshine and Rainbows stamp set, I stamped the sentiment in the upper right corner with Island Indigo ink and the sun onto a scrap of Whisper White paper using Daffodil Delight ink.  The sub was then die cut using the Rainbow Builder framelits and attached it to the card with a stampin’ dimensional.

I stamped the unicorns from the Magical Day stamp set onto  scraps of Whisper White with Momento Black ink and colored them with the Stampin’ Blends.  They were then placed between the cloud layers and adhered with glue dots.

The interior of the card is lined with a 5 1/4″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White CS. Before adhering it to the interior of the card, I stamped the sentiment (from Sunshine and Rainbows) in Island Indigo ink.  The Wizard and Dragon were stamped in Momento Black ink and colored with the Stampin’ Blends.  I was just tickled in how this card came out and I hope you are too.  If you wish to purchase any of the products used in the making of this card, I have provided links to my store below.

Stampin’ Up! is releasing some exclusive products that you can only earn for FREE!  Yes, you heard me right, they are only available for a limited time and you can only earn them for FREE!  When I first saw the 2018 Sale-a-bration offerings, I knew I HAD to have this Party Panda stamp set.

2018 Stampin' Up! Sale-a-braton Party Pandas Handmade Eclipse Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts out with a Pacific Point card base, 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″, followed by a 5-1/4″ x 4″ layer of Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper (DSP). The Party Pandas were stamped onto a 4-1/4″ x 3″ layer of Whisper White card stock and colored with the Stampin’ Blends markers.  The number “2018” die cut out of the middle of that layer.

2018 Stampin' Up! Sale-a-braton Party Pandas Handmade Eclipse Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The Whisper White layer – minus the numbers – was mounted onto a 4-3/8″ x  3-1/8″ layer of Pool Party CS with multi-purpose glue.  The numbers were then inserted into the holes they were cut from and mounted on mini stampin’ dimensionals. The inserts to the “0” and the “8” were adhered into their spaces with multi-purpose glue.

The inside of the card is a 5-1/4″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White CS.  It was stamped with a Panda in the middle and the envelope was colored with Stampin’ Blends markers.  The “sparkles” around the outer edge are stamped with a stamp from the Amazing You stamp set – which is also a limited time stamp set that may only be earned for FREE.  It was stamped using Pacific Point, Rich Razzleberry, So Saffron and Pumpkin Pie inks.

A Little Pocket Change

Hi Stampers.  As the year comes to a close and we pack away the Christmas decorations and ready ourselves for the new year we may find ourselves in need of birthday cards once again.  There is nothing like writing important dates into the new years calendar to remind you how many birthdays are coming up in the near future.  For this card I chose to go with another gift card idea using a current and a retired set.  The front of the card is done with the current Pocket Full of Sunshine stamp set, while the inside is done with the B.Y.O.P. stamp set.

Stampin' Up! Pocketful of Sunshine handmade card pocket change by Lisa Ann Beranrd of Queen B Creations

This card starts with a Dapper Denim card base, 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″.  I stamped the pocket onto a piece of Dapper Denim piece of cardstock approx. 3 1/2″ x 3 3/4″.  The pocket was then cut out with the coordinating framelit from the Pocket Framelit dies using the Big Shot.  I stamped the “HBD” (meaning Happy Birthday)  and the sunglasses onto scrap of Real Red CS  with Basic Black ink and cut them out with the matching framelit.  The money was stamped in Old Olive ink onto Very Vanilla CS and cut that with the matching framelit on the Big Shot.

A piece of Whisper White card stock was cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″ for the front of the card.  The sentiments were then stamped in Dapper Denim ink. in the upper left and lower right corner. The edges of the “pocket” were folded on the score lines and fast fuse was attached to them so that the pocket could be attached to the card front.  Fast fuse was used because it has a stronger hold and we will be inserting the money and sunglasses into the pocket.  Isn’t that cool that it functions as an actual pocket?!?!

Stampin' Up! Pocketful of Sunshine handmade card pocket change by Lisa Ann Beranrd of Queen B Creations

The greetings on the inside of this card can be anything you wish.  I chose to use a retired stamp set because it fit my need.  The stamp set is  called B.Y.O.P (which means buy your own present).  I stamped in primary colors: Real Red, Dapper Denim and Garden Green ink. A red heard (from the same stamp set) was stamped in Real Red ink in two corners.

Now all I have to do is add money and send it on its way. 🙂  If you would like to make this card, I have included a list of supplies below.  I do hope that you would choose me as YOUR demonstrator!

Valentine’s Day for a Friend

Hi Stampers. Do you send Valentine’s Day cards?  I’ve got a pretty one to share with you today.  Now that we’ve all made it past Christmas, I’ve set my sights on Valentine’s Day.  I turn 50 the week before and I’m really NOT looking forward to it.  My thought is by Valentines Day it will all be over! LOL

Stampin' Up! Bloomin' Love Bloomin' Heart Valentines Day card for a friend by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts with a Real Red card base (8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″). The decorative dots embossing folder gave an interesting texture to a 4″ x 5 1/4″ layer of Whisper White cardstock, using the Big Shot.  The Whisper White layer was then attached with snail adhesive.  I then used the Stampin’ Up! Bloomin’ Heart thinlit dies to cut the heart out of Real Red cardstock and the flowers were cut from Silver Glimmer paper.  The floral heart was adhered to the front of the card with Stampin’ dimensionals placed below the flowers.  The silver glimmer flowers were adhered over the other flowers with mini glue dots.  The sentiment and ribbon were stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and cut out with the coordinating die in the Large Numbers framelit dies and adhered with stampin’ dimensionals.

This stamp set and coordinating thinlits are a very versatile and can be used for many occasions year round.  I hope that you would consider adding it to your collection.
