Well Written Happy Birthday Card

Hi Stampers. Today I have a bright and cheery birthday car for you.  This “Happy Birthday” card features two of the new 2020-2022 In-Colors – Magenta Madness & Bumblebee.  It also features the new Rainbow Glimmer Paper.

Stampin' Up! In Color DSP Glimmer Paper and Well Written Dies handmade Happy Birthday card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

It all started with a Magenta Madness card base,  11″ x 4-1/4″, scored at 5-1/2″.  Next, I cut 3″ of one end to get a 3″ x 4-1/4″ piece.  I added some of the new In Color Designer Series Paper over the top.  The Magenta Madness piece is 2-1/4″ x 4″ and the Bumblebee piece is 2-3/4″ x 4″.  I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the DSP to the cardstock.

After adding the DSP, I spun the 3″ x 4-1/4″ piece 90 degrees and centered it on the card from and adhered the left side.  For the sentiment, I added a piece of Adhesive Sheet to the back of some of the Rainbow Glimmer Paper and then cut out the “happy birthday” using the Well Written dies. Using the Butterfly Duet Punch – I punched out a small butterfly.  These were easy to add to the card front, since they had adhesive sheet on the back – just peel and stick – no mess!

Inside the card is a 4″ – 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock that can be decorated anyway you want. Enjoy!

Happy Birthday Hop

Hi Stampers. Welcome to the Candy Hearts Blog Hop for August – I have been asked to be a guest hopper today! Today we are sharing Birthday themed projects. After reading my post, I hope you will hop to the next person on the list below. Be sure to hop around to see ALL the great projects the Candy Hearts have created for you.

  Stampin' Up! Special Someone punch art camera birthday card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

My card was inspired by my good friend Lorri Heiling – she’s super creative!  She made a similar card last year, so I changed up the stamp set and DSP to make my card.

Stampin' Up! Special Someone punch art camera birthday card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The card is made to look like a camera – remember those?  We had them before everyone had a cell phone with a camera built in. LOL  I gave it a strap using some Misty Moonlight ribbon. My “lens” is made by cutting several circles using the layering circles dies and putting the Shimmery Crystal Effects on the top. (Note: it should dry clear with glitter, but it’s not quite dry in my photos).

Stampin' Up! Special Someone punch art camera birthday card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Inside the card is a “photo” of the characters from the Special Someone stamp set.  They are all holding happy birthday balloons :-).  I made the corners to hold the “photo” in place using a 3/4″ square of Misty Moonlight CS cut in half diagonally with the paper snips.  The sky and grass are sponged on using wedges of a stamping sponge.

Peaking out of the top of the card is Basic Black CS punched out using the Everyday Label Punch with a small strip of Silver Foil added.  To the right on the top is a Silver Foil circle topped with a Frosted Epoxy Droplet.  The “Happy Birthday” sentiment is stamped onto Whisper White CS in Basic Gray ink.  It was punched out using the Classic Label punch and adhered using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. It was so fun to make and I’m sure the recipient will love it!

Thank you for hopping with the Hearts today! Be sure to hop around to all the stops. You do not want to miss any of the creativity in this talented group of stampers!

Laptop Zoom Party

Hi Stampers. I have a cute idea to share with you today.  I’ve been meeting with my Creative Royalty team over zoom and a few weeks before each meeting, I mail them an envelope full of card pieces.  During the zoom meeting we assemble the cards.  Since I’m unable to stamp images for them, all cards need to be able to be completed with stamps they all have on hand. (Hence, the retired Bonanza Buddies DSP).

There is a standard card base in Basic Gray followed by a layer of Smokey Slate CS.  I used the Stitched So Sweetly Dies to die cut these shapes from Bermuda Bay and Whisper White CS. (Each team member chose a stamp from their stash to add the sentiment.

Stampin' Up! Many Mates Bonanza Buddies laptop zoom meeting card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I stamped the “Happy Birthday” (from the Many Mates stamp set) randomly all over the Smokey Slate CS in Basic Gray ink to give it a little more interest.  Then I added the sentiment labels using stampin’ dimensionals and added a few enamel dots for bling.

Stampin' Up! Many Mates Bonanza Buddies laptop zoom meeting card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

To make it a laptop, I needed a keyboard. I found the image of the keyboard online HERE and printed it out on my printer.  For the screens of my zoom friends I used squares of Calypso Coral, Bermuda Bay, Garden Green and Daffodil Delight CS.

My “friends” are from the retired Bonanza Buddies DSP – I cute them out quick and easy on my Brother Scan N Cut.  My team members were tickled with how cut the zoom laptop card came out – me, too!

Mountain Air Birthday

Hi Stampers. Say Happy Birthday to your man with this super easy Majestic Mountain Air birthday card.  Super easy – yet very stylish.

Stampin' Up! Mountain Air masculine happy birthday card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card started out with a Soft Suede card base and has a layer of Crumb Cake Background DSP.  The Mountains are stamped onto a Very Vanilla stitched circle that was cut out using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  For the mountains, I used Soft Suede ink and for the trees, I used Mossy Meadow ink.  The stitched circle was then added to the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

Stampin' Up! Mountain Air masculine happy birthday card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The moon was stamped in Seaside Spray onto a scrap of Very Vanilla CS and punched out using a 1″ circle punch.  You can also use the layering circle dies for this.  The Happy Birthday was stamped in Soft Suede ink onto a scrap of Very Vanilla CS and punched out using the Classic Label Punch.  These two items were then adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Inside the card I used a slightly smaller layer than I usually do – this one is 3-3/4″ x 5″.  This just gave me a wider border around the outside. Layers are pretty easy to figure out once you understand that the card base is 4-1/4″ by 5-1/2″.  After that each layer is 1/4″ shorter and 1/4″ narrower than the prior layer.  To make it easy for you – I made this chart.  You can print it out  HERE.

Ink Blending with Winter Woods

Hi Stampers. Happy Monday!  I love Monday’s and the fresh start it brings each week. Today I’d like to share with you a new technique I’ve been working on.  Ink Blending has been all the rage online late – mostly with alcohol ink pads.  Stampin’ Up! does not have alcohol ink pads – so, I decided to try it with our Classic Stampin’ Pads.

Stampin' Up! Winter Woods ink blending technique by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

My card base is Mossy Meadow CS and I stamped the trees in Memento Black ink onto Very Vanilla CS. I cut a stamping sponges into six wedges each and assigned each wedge a color.  Trying to chose colors that i thought would blend well together, I chose Mossy Meadow, Old Olive and Pear Pizzaz greens for the bottom (grass).  The top (sky) colors are Night of Navy, Pacific Point and Seaside Spray – with a touch of Blackberry Bliss.

Stampin' Up! Winter Woods ink blending technique by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Across the middle, I sponged a little Pumpkin Pie as the sun and faded out using Mango Melody and Daffodil Delight.  For the sentiment i cut I a 1″ strip of Very Vanilla CS and flagged the end using the banner triple punch. I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment in Night of Navy ink and sponged the edges with the same.  It was then attached to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Inside the card is a simple sentiment on a Very Vanilla CS layer.  Will you give ink blending a try?  I will supply a list below of all supplies needed – they can be purchased in my online store by clicking the product image.

Stampin’ Tip: For sponging on the ink, start off the edge of the CS and come onto the CS using circular motions.

A Bunch of Timeless Tulips

Hi Stampers. Tulips are timeless, so it’s easy to see how Timeless Tulips got it’s name.  They look beautiful in Highland Heather.

Stampin' Up! Timeless Tulips Tulip Builder Punch purple birthday card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card only uses 3 colors: Highland Heather, Garden Green and Whisper White.  Three of the tulips (from the Timeless Tulips stamp set) were stamped directly onto the Whisper White layer and 2 of the tulips were stamped onto Highland Heather CS using Highland Heather ink.  Those two were then punched out using the Tulip Builder Punch. They were then adhered using stampin’ dimensionals.

Happy Birthday (also from the Timeless Tulips stamp set) in Highland Heather ink onto Whisper White CS and punched out using the Classic Label Punch.  A second label was punched out of Highland Heather CS using the Classic Label Punch.

Stampin’ Tip:  I used paper snips to cut the Highland Heather label lengthwise and adhered it to the back of the Whisper White label using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. When i attached it, I attached each piece so that it would look a border. It was then adhered using mini stampin’ dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Timeless Tulips Tulip Builder Punch purple birthday card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The stems and leaves were stamped onto Whisper White CS.  Some of them were stamped directly on the Whisper White layer and some onto scraps and punched out using the Tulip Builder Punch.  A few of the leaves are adhered using stampin’ dimensionals to make them pop.

I wrapped some white bakers twin around the Whisper White layer BEFORE I adhered it to the Highland Heather card base and tied a simple bow on the front.

Stampin' Up! Timeless Tulips Tulip Builder Punch purple birthday card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Inside the card is another layer of Whisper White.   The sentiment was stamped in the center in Highland Heather ink.  A row of small tulips stamped in Highland Heather ink decorate the bottom of the layer.  Now, it’s ready to brighten someones day. 🙂
