Thank You Blog Hop

The-Remarkable-Inkbig-Blog-Hop

Hi Stampers.  Welcome back for another Remarkable InkBig blog hop.  This months theme is “Thank You”.   Thank you is something I cannot say enough to those of you wonderful people who support me in doing a business that I love!!  I am so blessed to be be able to make money from my passion of stamping and creating!

Stampin' Up! Daisy Delight Thank You card by Queen B CreationsThis Thank You card is made with the Daisy Delight bundle.  It comes with a stamp set and a daisy punch.  It was so popular that right after release the punch went into back order status.  It is once again available for purchase and is a great buy!

The card starts with an Old Olive card base (5.5″ x 8.5″, scored at 4.25″), next up is a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of So Saffron card stock followed by a 5″ x 3.75″ layer of Whisper White.  I stamped the Thank You in Night of Navy and then adhered a 2″ x 5″ strip of DSP and a 6″ strip of Whisper White ribbon over that.  I wrapped the ribbon around the back side and adhered it with glue dots.  I then adhered that layer to the So Saffron layer with stampin’ dimensionals and the So Saffron layer to the card base with snail adhesive.

Stampin' Up! Daisy Delight Thank You card by Queen B CreationsI stamped two of the daisy from the daisy stamp onto So Saffron card stock with So Saffron ink and punched them out with the daisy punch.  I curled the edges with a bone folder and then offset the petals and adhered the two together and both to the card with dots and finished off with a pearl accent in the middle. (When I made this card – the clear faceted gems were on back order – but they are not any more – check them out, they are awesome!)

Stampin' Up! Daisy Delight Thank You card by Queen B CreationsI kept the inside of the card simple by using a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White card stock and stamping the greeting in Night of Navy ink and the small daisies across the bottom in So Saffron ink.

Again, I can’t say enough how thankful I am for all of you that support me in this wonderful journey I can Stampin’ Up!

Anniversary Blog Hop

Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop BadgeHi Stampers.  Welcome to the Global Stamping Friends First Anniversary Blog Hop.  We hope you enjoy our project and are inspired to break out the stamps and ink.

I’m featuring a custom card I made as a special order from my Etsy store.  Can you guess who it’s for?

Custom Card Creation for a legend by Queen B CreationsI’ve started with a Basic Black card base using my Card in a Box template – see more info on that HERE.  I then covered it with Gold Glimmer Paper.  I used the Stampin’ Up! Number of Years stamp set and the Large Numbers framelits to make the “Look who’s turning 82” on the back. I sponged the edges with Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie ink using sponge daubers. I just LOVE the new MINI stampin’ dimensionals  They worked great for attaching the numbers to the back.

The piano and flames were cut out using my Silhouette Cameo, using Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry and Gold Foil card stock.  That was used as my focal point based on the store HERE.  The car, records, record label and dog are his.  I printed the photos onto Whisper White card stock and cut them out with my paper snips.  I did the same thing with the guns and the words God and Family.  I used Basic Black ink and a stamp from the retired stamp set Happy Happenings to stamp onto a balloon I punched out of Crushed Curry card stock with the Stampin’ Up! Balloon punch.

The flap on the left side has the badge from the One Wild Ride stamp set embossed onto Pumpkin Pie card stock. I then used white embossing powder to emboss the work “journey” onto a piece of Basic Black card stock, flagged the ends and placed it over the word journey on the badge with mini stampin’ dimensionals to give it some extra pop.

Custom Card Creation for a legend by Queen B CreationsThe buyer requested a custom message on the right flap, I have blurred out the names to protect the buyers identity.  This card was ALOT of fun to create!  I hope he loves it as much as I loved making it!

If you don’t currently have and Stampin’ Up! demonstrator you are working with and wish to purchase any of the materials used in this card, I’ve provided links below to my online store.  Be sure to use the monthly hostess code for your chance to win this months hostess credit!  (HOSTESS CODE: S4GV43QJ)

Pals Cut it Out Blog Hop

Pals blog hop badge

Hi Stampers. Welcome to the August 2017 Pals Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us today. This month we’re going to “Cut It Out”. Participants will feature projects with “cuts” from punches, dies, Framelits, Edgelits, or Thinlits.

Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

Here in Northern California we are less than a week away from school starting up, that lets me know that Fall/Autumn is right around the corner.  My project for today is a Fall/Autumn themed card in a box birthday card.  This card features some beautiful fall colors (Cajun Craze, Always Artichoke and Crushed Curry inks paired with Soft Suede, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla card stocks with a touch of wood textures DSP and gold foil paper).

Fall/Autumn theme birthday card in a box made using the woodland embossing folder and the Colorful Seasons stamp set with the coordinating Seasonal Layers Thinlit dies by Queen B CreationsI used my basic card in a box card base design (found here) using Soft Suede card stock with Crumb Cake layered over that.  The bottom crumb cake pieces have been dry embossed with the Woodland textured embossing folder on the Big Shot.

Fall/Autumn theme birthday card in a box made using the woodland embossing folder and the Colorful Seasons stamp set with the coordinating Seasonal Layers Thinlit dies by Queen B CreationsThe flaps are layered with Crumb Cake and then Very Vanilla card stock.  Onto the Very Vanilla card stock I have stamped the sentiments from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set in Soft Suede ink. I then stamped the leaves in Crushed Curry, Always Artichoke and Cajun Craze inks.  The leaves were cut out of Crushed Curry, Always Artichoke and Cajun Craze card stock using the Seasonal Layers thinlit dies. The larger leaves have an additional detailed layer of gold foil over the top of the full leaf. The branch and the chair we die cut out of Wood Textures DSP.  All these pieces have been attached to the dividers in the middle of the card in a box with 1/4″ strips of acetate and glue dots.

Fall/Autumn theme birthday card in a box made using the woodland embossing folder and the Colorful Seasons stamp set with the coordinating Seasonal Layers Thinlit dies by Queen B CreationsThe back side of the box has a 2 1/8″ x 5″ layer of Very Vanilla giving plenty of room to stamp a few matching leaves and still leave plenty of room for the giver to write a personal message to the recipient.

Fall/Autumn theme birthday card in a box made using the woodland embossing folder and the Colorful Seasons stamp set with the coordinating Seasonal Layers Thinlit dies by Queen B CreationsThis card fold flat for mailing and fits into a 6″ x 5.5″ envelope made with DSP using the envelope punch board.

These card in a box cards have been very popular in my Etsy store!  I encourage you to give it a try!  I have listed all the supplies used below.  There are links to my store to purchase these items from my store 24/7.  If you don’t already have a demonstrator – I’d love to be YOUR Stampin’ Up! lady!

Please take a minute to mark your calendar for our next hop on September 13, 2017 for “My Favorite Season”. Now hop along using the Blog Hop Line-up below. Thank you so much for hopping with the Stampin’ Pretty Pals today. Don’t forget to leave us a comment. We’d love to hear what you have to say about our creative “Cuts”.

Kids Cards Blog Hop

Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop Badge

Hi Stampers. Welcome to the Global Stampin’ Friends August Blog Hop.  We are featuring Kids cards this time.  Please use the list below to follow along with the hop.

For my card today, I have a really fun spinner card for you.  Fidget spinners seem to be all the rage now days – so what could be better for a kids birthday card?

My card base is Pacific Point card stock 8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″.  Next I took a 5.25″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White card stock and used the retired word window punch to cut a slit in the layer for the fidget spinner to spin in. I used the Better Together stamp set and some primary color ink pads.  Pacific Point, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight and Garden Green to stamp the birthday hats.

For the fidget spinner itself, I took an actual fidget spinner and traced it and cut it out of Pacific Point card stock. (Honestly, that worked, but I’m too picky, so I downloaded a clip art file and cut it out on my Silhouette Cameo for the final card.)  I then punched out 3 1″ circles from Basic Black card stock and adhered them with liquid glue to the three points on the spinner.  Next I cut out 3 3/4″ circles from Basic Black card stock and adhered those over the top of the 1″ circles with a stampin’ dimensional. Finally, I punched out a 1/2″ circle and adhered it to the middle with liquid glue.

What makes the card spin is pennies.  I have one on either side of the top layer and they are attached in the middle with a stampin’ dimensional.

Stampin' Up! Better Together primary colors birthday card with a fidget spinner that actually moves. This spinner card was made by Queen B Creations.Next, I adhered the top layer, with the fidget spinner attached onto the card base using stampin’ dimensionals.  This makes sure there is room for the penny on the bottom to move freely allowing the fidget spinner to spin.

Stampin' Up! Better Together primary colors birthday card with a fidget spinner that actually moves. This spinner card was made by Queen B Creations.The inside of the card has a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White card stock. I stamped the coordinating sentiment from the same stamp set (Better Together) on the interior of the card in Pacific Point ink.  I stamped the hats (from the same set) in the upper left and lower right corner using Garden Green and Daffodil Delight ink. That layer is adhered to the card base with snail adhesive.

I hope my card inspires you to give you to give this spinner card idea a try!  I have provided a list of all Stampin’ Up! products used with links to purchase them from my store below.

Pals Pattern Party Hop

Hi Stampers.

Welcome to the July 2017 Pals Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us today. This month we’re having a Pattern Party! Hoppers will feature projects using their favorite Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper and coordinating embellishments. After all, color coordination is a Stampin’ Up! Strength.

Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

The Designer Series Paper that I chose to use was the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack.  This is a great 6″ x 6″ stack of various wood grain papers.  My husband is a carpenter / cabinet builder so I knew I could make use of various woods. They worked great for the Daisy Delight Thank You card.

Stampin' Up! Daisy Delight Bundle Thank You card by Queen B Creations for Pals Blog HopThis card has an Early Espresso card base (8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″).  I layered a 5.5″ x 4.25″ piece of Wood Texture DSP over the top of that.  I chose a rather dark wood to contrast my white daisies.  The daisies were punched out of Whisper White card stock with the ever popular daisy punch.  The center of the daisy was stamped with a small stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Delight stamp set in So Saffron ink onto So Saffron card stock and punched out with a 1/2″ circle punch.  The leaves behind the daisies was cut from Always Artichoke card stock with a framelit die from the Everyday Jars framelit set.Stampin' Up! Daisy Delight Bundle Thank You card by Queen B Creations for Pals Blog HopI layered two of the daisies over the top of each other offsetting the petals to get the whole daisy and then layered two half daisies over the top of each other (offsetting the petals) . I then used glue dots to adhere the leaves behind the flowers and the centers to the daisies. The bottom (half) daisy is adhered to the card with snail adhesive and the top (full) daisy is adhered with a stampin’ dimensional.Stampin' Up! Daisy Delight Bundle Thank You card by Queen B Creations for Pals Blog HopThe interior of the card is lined with a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White card stock with a 3/4″ strip of matching DSP adhered the the right side of the layer.  I stamped the sentiment “Thank You” in the center with Early Espresso ink.  I stamped the flower on the left side using Always Artichoke, So Saffron and Early Espresso inks.  I’m in love with how it turned out!

Please take a minute to mark your calendar for our next hop on August 9, 2017 when our projects will feature “cuts” from punches, dies, framelits, edgelits, or thinlits. Now hop along using the Blog Hop Line-up below. Thank you so much for hopping with the Stampin’ Pretty Pals today. See you on August 9th!

Time to Sparkle

The-Remarkable-Inkbig-Blog-Hop

Hi Stampers.

Welcome to the Blog Hop for July 2017. This month our theme is “Sparkle”.  You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – Queen B Creations or may have come from the person previous to me in 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! Watercolor Wings stamps set and butterfly thinlit dies are used to create this sparkle card by Queen B Creations for the Remarkable Inkbig Blog HopThis card starts with a THICK Whisper White card base 8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″.  Next I used a 5.25″ x 4″ piece of Pink Pirouette card stock and used the butterfly thinlit die to cut the butterfly out of the layer with the big shot.  I pushed out all the internal pieces and set the butterfly aside. I then used the versamark ink pad and a butterfly stamp from the Watercolor Wings stamp set to stamp the butterfly randomly around the layer.  I then sprinkled it with iridescent ice stampin’ emboss powder, tapped off the excess to put back into the jar and heated it with the heat tool.  I then randomly stamped the dots with Pink Pirouette ink.

Stampin' Up! Watercolor Wings stamps set and butterfly thinlit dies are used to create this sparkle card by Queen B Creations for the Remarkable Inkbig Blog HopI then placed the butterfly back into the space I had just cut it out of and placed two pieces of packing tape to the back of the layer holding the butterfly in place and leaving the sticky exposed on the front of the layer.  I then sprinkled dazzling diamond glitter over the exposed sticky and tapped off the excess to put back into the jar.  I added a strip of rhinestones down the body for more sparkle. (I love that these small rhinestones from the rhinestone basic jewels in already adhered together in a self adhesive strip, it made adding this to the body was super easy!)

I then wrapped a piece of 5/8″ Whisper White Satin Ribbon around the Pink Pirouette layer and tied a knot in front and then used snail adhesive to adhere this layer to the card base.

Stampin' Up! Watercolor Wings stamps set and butterfly thinlit dies are used to create this sparkle card by Queen B Creations for the Remarkable Inkbig Blog HopOn the interior of the card I stamped the sentiment and dots in Pink Pirouette ink and added a 5.5″ x .5″ strip of Pink Pirouette card stock to the outer edge.

I hope this idea “sparkles” up some ideas and gets you stamping!

Thanks for taking part in our blog hop, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don’t want to miss. Be sure to check the blog hop line up list below to see who is next in the list.

Christmas in July with a Twist

Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop BadgeHi Stampers.  Welcome back to another international blog hop with Global Stamping Friends.  Stampers from all over the world are sharing with us a holiday project in July BUT using a set that isn’t designed specifically for holidays in at least one of their projects. For my project I chose to use Stampin’ Up! Baby Bear stamp set with Real Red and Garden Green.

Stampin' Up! Christmas card using Baby Bear stamp set by Queen B Creations for the Global Stamping Friends Blog HopThis card starts with a Real Red card base 8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″. I then used Garden Green card stock to cut a piece 3.5″ x 3.5″ and another 3.5″ x 1″. Next I cut a Whisper White card stock 3.25″ x 3.25″ and 3.25″ x .75″.  Onto the 3.25″ square WW piece, I stamped the three step baby bear in Crumb Cake ink.  The first image of the bear is done lighter by stamping off onto scrap paper before stamping onto the card stock.  The other two are full strength Crumb Cake ink. I stamped the two step bow in Real Red ink onto a scrap of Whisper White and fussy cut it out with my paper snips. The bow was adhered to the bear with glue dots. The sentiment was also stamped in Real Red ink.  The layers were then adhered to the card with snail adhesive.

Stampin' Up! Christmas card using Baby Bear stamp set by Queen B Creations for the Global Stamping Friends Blog HopThe inside of the card is lined with a 5.25″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White card stock and the sentiment and bow were stamped in Real Red ink.

This card could easily be done in other colors and be for a baby shower or congratulation or baby’s first birthday card.  I hope this gives you a new way to look at your existing stamps and give them a slight twist for an occasion they may not have been designed for originally.  Let’s get creative!
