See What’s Retiring Soon

Hi Stampers.  We demonstrators were shown the new catalog yesterday!  It’s so exciting!  Tons of fun new stuff! My husband and I are embarking on our first ever two week vacation.  This vacation includes a 10 day cruise in the Southern Caribbean.  We will sail out of Miami and go to Hati and then down to the ABC Islands – Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao!  So, I’m super happy that I was able to download the new catalog to my iPad, so I can bring it along with me.

But, with the new catalog coming and all those new products being added, it means that some items will need to be retired.  Now is your chance to take a look and see if there is anything from your “wish list” that you were saving for later.  There is no more time to waste!  Several items have been deeply discounted and will be “while supplies last”.  Order yours NOW!!

See everything retiring in one spot!  Click the links below to see what’s retiring by category:

View the retiring products lists here in PDF format and Excel format.

One of the bundles I’m really going to miss is the Nailed It stamp set and the Build It framelit dies.  My husband is a cabinet maker and I can see using this bundle for many cards for him.  Today’s card is a perfect example of what a great set this is.

Handmade Stampin' Up! card made with nailed it stamp set and build it framelit dies by Queen B Creations  Great card for a carpenter or any wood worker who uses tools.

This card started with a Basic Black card base, 8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″.  I then used the silver foil paper with the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and with the ruler, screws and nuts from the framelit set.  I cut the hexagon layer at an angle and angled the ruler above it.   I stamped the tools in Memento Black in and colored them with the Many Marvelous Markers and adhered them to the front of the card.

Retiring 2015-2017 In Colors Blog Hop

The-Remarkable-Inkbig-Blog-HopHi Stampers.

Welcome to the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop for April 2017. This month our theme is “Retiring 2015-2017 In Colors”.  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.

I have to admit that the Stampin’ Up! 2015-2017 in-colors were not my favorite, but I will miss Tip Top Taupe and Mint Macaron, so I used those colors for the card stock in my Easter card.  Can you believe that Easter is less than a week away???

I’m most excited about that because my hubby and I with be in the southern Caribbean on a cruise for Easter!!  We are going to the ABC Islands – Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao on Royal Caribbean Navigator of the Seas!!  Ten days of heaven, I can’t wait!!

Stampin' Up! Easter Bunny in a basket card using Basket Bunch and retiring 2015-2017 in colors Remarkable Inkbig blog hop My card base is Mint Macaron, 8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25.  I followed that with a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Tip Top Taupe and then a 5″ x 3.75″ layer of Whisper White card stock.  On the Whisper White layer I stamped the carrot from the Stampin’ Up! Basket Bunch stamp set in Cucumber Crush ink and colored in with a Pumpkin Pie marker.

Easter Bunny in a basket card using Basket Bunch and retiring 2015-2017 in colors Remarkable Inkbig blog hopFor my focal point I used the layering Ovals framelit dies.  The scalloped circle is cut from Mint Macaron card stock and the plain circle in Whisper White.  I die cut the basket in Tip Top Taupe for both layers.  I used the foam strips to adhere the two basket layers together.  I them cut the grass in Garden Green and stamped the bunny onto Whisper White card stock with Memento Black ink and cut it out with the matching framelit from the Stampin’ Up! Basket Builder framelit dies.  I colored the inside of his ears with Pink Pirouette and the bow tie with Watermelon Wonder markers.  The ovals are adhered to the card with Stampin’ dimensionals and the basket to the ovals with glue dots.

The inside of the card is lined with a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White card stock.  I stamped the grass along the bottom in Cucumber Crush ink and the sentiment in Tip Top Taupe ink.  The eggs were cut from the framelit with Whisteria Wonder, Soft Sky and Pink Pirouette card stock, while the bunny was stamped in Chocolate Chip ink onto Chocolate Chip card stock and cut out with the matching framelit.

Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop

Hi Stampers.

Welcome to the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop for March 2017. This month our theme is “SaleABration”, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don’t want to miss any of them.  Regardless if you started here or came from another blog, you want to check out all the fun ideas.  I have included the entire blog hop line up (featuring 23 Stampin’ good ideas!) in case 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.

One of my favorite 2017 SaleABration items was recently added.  Have you seen the new 6″ x 6″ glimmer paper assortment pack?  (You can get your very own pack by ordering $50 in Stampin’ Up! product during SaleABration!) It’s a fabulous pack 12 with 4 of each fun of 3 spring colors – Mint Macron, Sweet Sugarplum & Bermuda Bay.

I recently had someone ask me to build them a “fairy card in a box” and she wanted LOTS OF GLITTER!  Well, one look at this new glimmer paper and I knew they would be perfect!

Stampin' Up! birthday card in a box in Bermuda Bay using Fairy Celebrations, Balloon Adventures and Star of Light stamp sets by Queen B Creations

I used my basic card in a box card base design (found here) using Bermuda Bay card stock and Bermuda Bay glimmer paper and used Whisper White as my stamping layer of card stock.  The fairy dust is stamped in Bermuda Bay ink using the swirl from the Stampin’ Up! Star of Light stamp set.

Stampin' Up! birthday card in a box in Bermuda Bay using Fairy Celebrations, Balloon Adventures and Star of Light stamp sets by Queen B Creations

I used the Stampin’ Up! Fairy Celebration stamp set.  I stamped onto Whisper White card stock and fussy cut them out using my paper snips.  This allowed me to clip off the cherries, which didn’t really fit with my design.  I then colored them with my Stampin’ Up! markers.  I cut out additional fairies and unicorn with my Silhouette Cameo using Stampin’ Up! glimmer paper (Dazzling Diamonds, Sweet Sugarplum, Mint Macron and Bermuda Bay).

For the side panels I used the Stampin ‘Up! Balloon Adventures and my computer/printer.  The customer asked for a specific saying on one panel and I didn’t have a stamp to match.  So, I created it on my computer using the RGB codes for Stampin’ Up! colors and printed it onto Whisper White card stock and cut it to size.

Spring has Sprung Pals Blog Hop

Stampin' Up! Pals Blog hop badge

Hi Stampers.

Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for March 2017. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our 2017 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month we are featuring Spring or Spring related projects. We hope you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.

If you have followed my blog much at all, you know that I love to do these card in a box explosion boxes.  In honor of Spring and our Spring has Sprung Blog Hop – I have made a Easter card.  This card features the Stampin’ Up! Easter Message stamp set.

Stampin' Up! Easter Message card in a box pop up explosion box made by Queen B Creations I used my basic card in a box card base design (found here) using Crumb Cake and Elegant Eggplant card stock and used Very Vanilla as my stamping layer of card stock.  I stamped in in Memento black, Garden Green and Elegant Eggplant ink. Stampin' Up! Easter Message card in a box pop up explosion box made by Queen B Creations

I colored the cross and flowers using my Stampin’ Up! Many Marvelous Markers.  The flowers, palm frond and cross were all fussy cut by hand using my Stampin’ Up! paper snips.

Stampin’ Tip:  When fussy cutting, keep your scissors in a comfortable forward position and turn the paper into the scissors, rather than turning the scissors around the paper.  You get more control this way.Stampin' Up! Easter Message card in a box pop up explosion box made by Queen B Creations

The cross is adhered to the back of the card with stampin’ dimensionals and the flowers and palm frond are adhered to the middle cross members with glue dots.  The Happy Easter sentiment is adhered with glue dots and two small strips of acetate.Stampin' Up! Easter Message card in a box pop up explosion box made by Queen B Creations

I love that these cards pop up for display and then fold flat for mailing.  A custom envelope can be made for this card with the Envelope Punch Board (5 1/2″ x 6″ envelope, 9 1/4″ square of DSP, first score at 4 3/8″).

Hey, Chick, It’s Sale-a-Bration!

Hi Stampers, Happy Friday!  I just love weekends.  It’s time to spend time with my husband and my stamps :-).  Today I wanted to share with you another stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! 2017 Sale-a-bration offerings.  I’m from Petaluma, CA – which is often referred to as the  Egg Basket of the World, so this has been a popular Sale-a-bration option in my hometown classes.  It’s so cute, I’m guessing this will be one of the stamp sets they run out of before Sale-a-bration is over.  Place your $50 order and get yours for FREE! (It’s not available for purchase.)

Stampin' Up! 2017 Sale-a-bration Hey Chick handmade card by Queen B Creations

This card starts with a Tangelo Twist card base, 8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″.  I then embossed a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Sahara Sand card stock with the Woodgrain Textured Embossing folder in the Big Shot, which was then adhered to the card base with snail adhesive.  I then stamped the chicken and the “hey, chick” sentiment in memento black ink onto Very Vanilla card stock.  I cut out the sentiment with the large oval punch and the chicken with one of the circle framelits from the layering circles framelit set in the Big Shot.  I sponged the edge of the circle with Crushed Curry ink with a stampin’ sponge.  I used a .75″ x 2″ strip of regal DSP paper stack and a .5″ x 2″ strip of Crushed Curry card stock to make the little flags for behind the chicken.  I cut out a scalloped oval with the scalloped oval punch and layered it behind the sentiment.  The sentiment and chicken were then attached to the card front with stampin’ dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! 2017 Sale-a-bration Hey Chick handmade card by Queen B CreationsFor the inside of this card I stamped onto a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Very Vanilla card stock with memento black ink and sponged the edges of the layer with Crushed Curry ink and a stampin’ spnoge before adhering it to the card with snail adhesive.  This was a quick and easy, super cute card and the class members loved it!  I hope you use the links below to order the product needed and make your own Hey, Chick card!

Global Design Project Winged Creatures

Hi Stampers. Happy Sunday, I hope you are having a blessed day!  I’m back today with another challenge.  Today’s challenge is a theme.  The folks over at Global Design Project have challenged us with a theme: Winged Creatures.  In looking through my stamps, I have many creatures with wings.  I settled on Stampin’ Up!s Fairy Celebration.  I love this stamp set, but haven’t used it much. This was the perfect push to get me to use it!

Global Design Project Theme: Winged Creatures

Here is the card I created with my “winged creature”:
Stampin' Up! Fairy Celebration card in a box pop up explosion card by Queen B CreationsTo decorate the box, I used Cherry Cobbler Background Designer Series Paper and then stamped onto a Whisper White layer for each flap.  I used the fairy on the cherry branch for the rear panel and colored it in with the many marvelous markers.  I stamped the other fairies from the Stampin’ Up! Fairy Celebration stamp set onto Whisper White card stock and colored them in with the many marvelous markers and then cut them out with the paper snips. I mounted those fairies on small strips of acetate to attach them to the cross members in the middle of the box.  I also punched out a few small flowers with the (retired) itty bitty accents punch pack and the DSP.  I mounted those onto acetate strips with glue dots and attached them to the cross members with glue dots.  I added a basic rhinestone to the center of each flower for a little more sparkle. The front flap was stamped with stamps from the Fairy Celebration set in Basic Back ink and accented with a few Basic Rhinestone jewels.  For the flap on the right, I used a sentiment from the Happy Happenings stamp set and punched out some confetti with the Sprinkles Punch using Cherry Cobbler card stock.  The confetti was attached using the fine-tip glue pen.

Stampin' Up! Fairy Celebration card in a box pop up explosion card by Queen B CreationsFor the flap on the left, I used a sentiment from the (retired) Remembering Your Birthday stamp set and punched out some confetti with the Sprinkles Punch using Cherry Cobbler card stock.  The confetti was attached using the fine-tip glue pen.

Stampin' Up! Fairy Celebration card in a box pop up explosion card by Queen B Creations

To fill in a little more in the middle pop up section, I stamped some flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Wild About Flowers stamp set using Daffodil Delight  and Wild Wasabi ink.  I also punched some butterflies out of Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper with the bitty butterfly punch.  I also used a two way glue pen and dazzling diamonds glitter to the fairy wings and some of the larger flowers.

This card ends up being approx 5.5″ x 6″ when folded flat.  I used the same Designer Series Paper and made a custom, made to fit, envelope with the Stampin’ Up! Envelope Punch Board.

If you’d like to try your had at making this card yourself.  The card in a box pattern (in PDF format) click here for PDF and  videos I made on how to make this card and envelope can be found on this prior post – click here.  Links to the products I used is below.  If you are ever in need of a custom made card, made by someone else, I would hope you would consider my Etsy store.

Fox in a Tree – FMS Challenge #276

Hi Stampers.  I hope you are having a Stampin’ good weekend.  I found myself a bit stumped for inspiration this week, so I searched out a few challenge blogs.  For today’s card I used sketch 276 from Freshly Made Sketches.

Freshly made sketches sketch #276

This is my interpretation of the sketch.  I used the Stampin’ Up! Foxy Friends bundle to create the cute little squirrel.  A quick flip through the A Little Foxy DSP paper stack brought me to this tree looking paper in Basic Gray.

Squirell in a tree made with the Stampin' Up! Fox Builder Punch by Queen B Creations

I used Basic Gray card stock, 8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″.  I used the Stampin’ Up! Stitched Shapes framelit dies to cut the Basic Gray circle for the tree hole (I sponged Basic Gray ink around the edge to give it a little extra pop) and the Whisper White circle for the sentiment.  I stamped the sentiment from the Sending Thoughts stamp set in Chocolate Chip ink.  I used the layering circles framelit dies to cut the circle for inside the hole in the tree.  I stamped the body of the squirrel (from the Stampin’ Up! Foxy Friends stamp set) in Soft Suede ink.  I punched the head for the squirrel out of Soft Suede and Whisper White and glued it together with the fine tip glue pen.  I stamped the nose and eyes in Basic Black.

Squirell in a tree made with the Stampin' Up! Fox Builder Punch by Queen B CreationsI adhered the DSP to the card front using snail adhesive and then attached the fox, hole and sentiment with snail adhesive too.  I then decided it needed something more…  I then used my retired Bird Builder punch to punch out the leaves in Basic Gray card stock and placed them randomly around the “tree trunk”.  They were attached using the fine tip glue pen.

Squirell in a tree made with the Stampin' Up! Fox Builder Punch by Queen B Creations

For the inside of the card, I used a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White card stock and stamped the squirrel in the lower left corner with Soft Suede and Basic Black ink and the vine in the upper right with Basic Gray ink.  I hope you find inspiration in my card and the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and you choose to pop on over there and play along with us.

High Tide Beach Lighthouse

Hi Stampers.  After much rain, an interview for a possible new job and a trip to the ER for kidney stones, I’m back!  For today’s card I used the Tide stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! 2017 Occasions catalog. This set makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.  I’m a true water person and we live just a half hour drive from the beach.  This set works for so many options!  It works for male and female, young or old and just about any occasion.

Handmade card made using Stampin Up! High Tide stamp set. Beach lighthouse birthday card by Queen B Creations

This card starts with a Soft Suede card base (8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″). I stamped onto a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Very Vanilla.  I started by stamping the sand, from the High Tide stamp set, in Crumb Cake ink.  This stamp image has the indent in it for the lighthouse.  I stamped the 2 step light house using Dapper Denim ink for both stamps.  For the bottom stamp I inked it up and stamped onto scrap paper and then onto my layer.  I then inked up the top layer and stamped direct to the layer.  I used Wild Wasabi ink for the weeds and Marina Mist ink for the water.  The birds (on land and in sky) were stamped using Smokey Slate ink and the sun was stamped using Crushed Curry ink.

Stampin’ Tip: In order to get a two tone effect on 2-step stamping you can “stamp off” on scrap paper once and then onto the layer (as described above).  This will give you two tones of the same color.

I like to make the inside of the card coordinate with the outside of the card.  To do this, I used a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Very Vanilla card stock, like I did on the front of the card.  I used the same sand stamp as on the front, but stamped it upside down, to avoid the indent for the lighthouse.  For color, I added Wild Wasabi weeds in each lower corner.  This card could be used for any occasion.  I chose to make this a birthday card by using the “Happy Birthday” sentiment from the Better Together stamp set and stamped it in Marina Mist ink.

First Birthday Construction Banner

Hi Stampers.  Hello from soggy Northern California.  The weather report last night said that we have had 28 inches of rain since January 1st.  That’s 205% of normal!!  I know we need the rain, due to the drought we are in, but I’m a little tired of all the flooding and mudslides….  In honor of the mudslide clean up I’m sharing my construction banner today.

Stampin' Up! 1st birthday banner with construction theme by Queen B Creations  This banner was made using the Stampin’ Up! banner framelits.  I used the largest banner framelit and Basic Black card stock for the base, then the next size down framelit with Crushed Curry card stock. I also used a torn layer of Soft Suede card stock over the Crushed Curry layer to look like dirt. Stampin' Up! 1st birthday banner with construction theme by Queen B CreationsThe letters were cut out of Basic Black card stock using the Large Letters framelit dies.  I rested them on top of the “dirt”.

Stampin' Up! 1st birthday banner with construction theme by Queen B Creations

Here is a close up look at one of the letters, so you can get a better look at the torn edge.

Stampin' Up! 1st birthday banner with construction theme by Queen B Creations

This little cement truck was cut using my Silhouette Cameo e-cutter and a design I purchased from the Silhouette Design Store.  The different colors were cut out separately and layered on top of each other to complete the truck. (I used Basic Gray, Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango, Basic Black and Whisper White card stock).

Stampin' Up! 1st birthday banner with construction theme by Queen B Creations

The little clouds were cut out using the Up & Away framelit dies and Whisper White card stock.  On the “dirt” and trucks I used some Soft Suede ink on a sponge dauber to rub a little extra “dirt” onto them to make them look “dirty”.

This banner is for sale in my Etsy store online.  It would be perfect for a little ones first birthday.  It can hang on the wall or across the front of the high chair.  Of course if you want to make your own, I have listed the supplies needed below with links to buy them from my Stampin’ Up! store.

Don’t forget that we are almost half way through Sale-a-bration!  This is your chance to earn a free product with each $50 you purchase in Stampin’ Up! product and is a fantastic time to join my Kingdom and become a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator on my team and earn yourself two extra stamp set for FREE!
