Stampin' Up! Hello Cupcake sweet wishes handmade birthday card made by Lisa Ann Bernared of Queen B Creations

For my card I chose to use the Hello Cupcake stamp set.  The card base Coastal Cabana CS – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″.  I stamped the sprinkles diagonally across the card front in Coastal Cabana ink.  The cupcake was stamped onto a piece of Whisper White CS 2-1/2″ x 4-1/4.  The base is stamped in Soft Suede ink and the Frosting is stamping in Powder Pink ink. Note: there is a gap between the base and frosting to allow for the sentiment. The sprinkles and cupcake topper are stamped in Melon Mambo.

The sentiment is stamped onto a 1-14″ piece of Powder Pink CS layered over a 4-1/4″ x 1-14″ piece of powder pink CS that has been flagged using the Banner Triple Punch. The sentinent was added with stampin’ dimensionals to give it some pop and the Glitter Enamel Dots add that touch of sparkle.

100th Birthday Card in a Box

Hi Stampers. I can’t think of a single relative that I’ve had that made  it to 100 years old. I find that to be just amazing!  When I was contacted by someone through my Etsy store to make a custom card in a box birthday card for a 100th birthday I was pretty excited.  This card is a bit of a flashback Friday, since it ended up being a mix of current and retired products. But, I thought it came out too cute not to share – after all, you may have some of the items used in your supply (or something similar to substitute).
Stamipn' Up! Card in a Box 100th birthday card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The card in a box started with a card base in Thick Whisper White cardstock. The base is layered with Rose & Silver Glimmer Paper.  The front, back and side panels are covered in Sparkle Glimmer paper. I side stamped the side panel sentiments onto Whisper White CS using Versamark ink and Silver embossing powder and heated it with my heat tool. The stamp sets used are Wonderful Day, Beautiful Bouquet and Make a Difference (for the word “mom” on the front of card).

Stamipn' Up! Card in a Box 100th birthday card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I used Petal Palette stamp set and Blushing Bride ink to stamp the flowers that were there colored using the Stampin’ Blends. For the “Look who’s turning”, I used the Number of Years stamp set (now retired) stamped in Blushing Bride ink onto Whisper White CS. I used two ovals to cut the arches on the banner and paper snips to flag the ends. Sponge Daubers with Blushing Bride ink to make it stand out a bit. The 100 was cut out of Rose Glimmer paper using the Large Numbers Framelits Dies (also retired) and mounted to the card with mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stamipn' Up! Card in a Box 100th birthday card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The center of the box is filled with cheerful balloons, butterflies and flowers. I used the Balloon Builder Punch to punch the balloons and gave them a bit of a highlight using a  silver gel pen. The balloons were cut from Blushing Bride CS and Rose Glimmer Paper. The butterflies were punched from Sparkling and Rose Glimmer Papers and layered on top of each other. Two small pearl accents were placed in the center of each small butterfly. (These butterflies were punched using the two retired butterfly punches – we now have one punch that will punch the two sizes at once.)

The bird was punched out of Rose and Sparkling Glimmer paper using the retired Bird Builder Punch. I colored the beak with the Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Write Marker.  A single small pearl colored with the dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blend marker made the perfect “eye” for my bird (note: you can also use a black Sharpie marker). The flowers were part of an Cake Soiree’ accessory kit that was in last years Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog. All inside parts are attached to small strips of acetate using mini glue dots at both ends. A few more pearls finished it off beautifully. My card in a boxes are a little bigger than a standard A2 envelope, so I make a custom 6″x6″ envelope with my Envelope Punch Board.

The customer loved it and I hope you do too.  I have listed most products used below (at least the ones currently available) which I’m sure will help you create a BEAUTIFUL card!

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.

Note: Did you know that you can create the “100” numbers by using the Large Letters Framelit Dies.  The one can be created using “M” with part trimmed off using the paper snips and the letter “O” and the “0” are practically identical.

Call Me Clover Belated Birthday Card

Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop Badge

Hi Stampers.  Wow, has this week gone by fast or what?!?!  I love having the holiday, but am having difficulty cramming 5 days worth of work into 4 days!  Anyone else have that issue this week?  But, I digress… You are here to see today’s post.  It’s only fitting that I’m doing a belated birthday card.  LOL Today I have a color challenge for you.  Global Stamping Friends were asked to make a project using Call Me Clover.  The only other colors we could use were Whisper White or Basic Black.  It was a challenge all right!  LOL  But, I am pretty happy with the end result.

I actually ended up making two cards.  The are both pretty similar.  One is just a “stepped up” version.  You can choose to make the simple card or the stepped up version.  The card base started with a 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″.  I then cut off 2 3/4″ off the long side.  Save this piece, you will need it for the front.  Next, I cut some Call Me Clover DSP 2 1/2″ x 4″ and a strip 1/2″ x 4″.  The larger of these was adhered to the front of the card and the 1/2″ strip was adhered to a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White CS for the inside of the card.

For the basic card, I used the 2 3/4″ x 4 1/4″ piece I had cut off and turned it 90 degrees.  This piece was adhered it to the card front using snail adhesive.  I only put adhesive on the half of this layer that would be touching the front of the card on the left. The sentiments were stamped onto a 2 1/2″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White CS in Call Me Clover ink. It was then adhered to the Call Me Clover layer with snail adhesive.

On the interior of the card I stamped ” forgive me? ” in Call Me Clover ink.

For the “stepped up” version. I took the piece 2 3/4″ x 4 1/4″ I had cut off an adhered it a piece of Whisper White CS that is 2 7/8″ x 4 5/8″.  The word “sorry” was stamped onto a 3 1/2″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White CS using my Stamparatus.  I then (without moving the CS or stamp, I cleaned the stamp and inked it with Versamark ink and stamped again. then, using clear embossing powder I heat embossed the word “sorry”. I cut a strip of Whisper White CS 3 1/2″ x  3/4″ and stamped the sentiment in Call Me Clover ink.  The ends of the strip were flagged the end using the Banner Triple Punch and I sponged the edges with Call Me Clover ink using a sponge dauber.   I attached the strip to the front of the card with stampin’ dimensionals.

Stampin’ Tip: Using the Stamparatus allowed me to stamp the word “sorry” in EXACTLY the same spot twice.  This allowed me to stamp the Versamark over the Call Me Clover ink.  Using the clear embossing powder made the word appear to be heat embossed in Call Me Clover.  This is a great technique for making heat embossing look like any one of our colors and the Stamparatus made it super easy!

The inside of the card was stamped with ” forgive me? ” in Call Me Clover ink.  I hope you like today’s monochrome card.  If you don’t already have a demonstrator and wish to purchase any of the products used in the making of this card, I have listed all products used below.  Each one has a link to my store making them easy to purchase.

Hand Delivered Birthday Balloons

Hi Stampers.  I have a very different kind of fancy fold card for you today.  This card isn’t a fancy fold on the card base – it’s on the inside!  I’ve used the Stampin’ Up! Hostess Set – Hand Delivered.  This is a fun set in that you can swap out the top half of the girl.  She can hold a cake, books, a sign or the balloons as shown here. The balloons are perfect for using our Stampin’ Blends.  The Stampin’ Blends are alcohol markers and make the balloons look almost 3 dimensional. You can see an example of how to color these balloons on a Facebook live I did last week.  Click here to see it.  Don’t forget to “like” my page so you get to see future Facebook lives I do.

Stampin' Up! Hand Delivered Host stamp set birthday balloons card colored with Stampin' Blends by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts out with a Lovely Lipstick card base, 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″.  Next up is a 4′ x 5 1/4″ layer of the 2018-2020 in-colors DSP in Lovely Lipstick.  The top layer is a 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″ layer of Whisper White that I stamped onto before adhering to the card.  (Always best to stamp first, if you make an error you can flip it over and stamp again.)

Stampin' Up! Hand Delivered Host stamp set birthday balloons card colored with Stampin' Blends by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I stamped this Whisper White layer with stamps from the Host set – Hand Delivered.  (This is only available to purchase, for $13, with a party or an order over $150.) I stamped the skirt/legs, balloons and sentiment in Memento Black ink.  Next, I colored it with Stampin’ Blends and adhered it to the card front with sail adhesive.

Stampin' Up! Hand Delivered Host stamp set birthday balloons card colored with Stampin' Blends by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The inside of the card has a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of Blueberry Bushel CS, scored at 2″, 4″, and 6″. I decorated the four panels with DSP from the 2018-2020 in-color 6″ x 6″ DSP. The Pinapple Punch was cut to 1 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ and adhered to the first panel. A 1 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ layer of Call Me Clover DSP was adhered to the third panel. Next I cut 2 panels of Whisper White CS – 1 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ for the second and fourth panel. A 1 3/4″ x 3/4″ piece of Grapefruit grove was adhered to the bottom of one of the Whisper White layers and adhered to the second panel inside the card. The last Whisper White layer has a 1/4″ x 3 3/4″ strip of Pineapple Punch DSP.

When I adhered the Blueberry Bushel layer to the inside of the card I folded it in an accordion fold and put adhesive on the first and fourth panels. You can see in the photo how the inside of the card looks.  It’s different and kinda cute.  What do you think?

If you are interested in purchasing these or any other Stampin’ Up! products and don’t already have a demonstrator, I’d love to spoil you! I have a special VIP Facebook group for all my customers where I share additional tips and more PDF tutorials.  I plan on adding in some fun games and giveaways soon, too!  You want to be part of it!

Flourishing Phrases Birthday

Hi Stampers. I hope you are having a stampin’ good day!  If you haven’t noticed yet, I stepped out of my comfort zone and started doing Facebook live.  I have to say it kinda freaks me out.  I love YouTube because I can film, edit and put up the best version.  Facebook Live is LIVE errors and all… LOL  But, I’ve done it and I plan to continue, so if you are not a “fan” of my Facebook Page yet. you should go “like” my page and turn on notifications to know when I go live.  Monday I went live to show you how to make a holder for the Stampin’ Blends out of our acetate boxes.  I also gave a demo on using the Stampin’ Blends.  Go check it out.

Stampin' Up! Flourishing Phrases and Picture Perfect Birthday handmade birthday card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Today’s card starts out how most of them do – with a card base 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″.  I chose to use Blackberry Bliss cardstock and ink. The main stamping panel is a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White. I stamped the flower flourish from the Stampin’ Up! Flourishing Phrases stamp set in Blackberry Bliss ink.  The sentiment is from Stampin’ Up! Picture Perfect Birthday, it was also stamped in Blackberry Bliss ink. I colored the flowers with the Highland Heather and Garden Green Stampin’ Write Markers. This layer was attached to the card base with snail adhesive. I used a retired butterfly punch to punch a butterfly out of dazzling diamonds glimmer paper and adhered it with glue dots. (An optional addition would be to put rhinestone or pearl accents on each of the round dots on the flower flourish.)

Stampin' Up! Flourishing Phrases and Picture Perfect Birthday handmade birthday card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The inside of the card is lined with a 5 1/4″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White CS.  Part of the flower flourish was stamped in the lower right and upper left corner in Blackberry Bliss ink. The sentiment (again, from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set) was also in Blackberry Bliss ink. I colored the flowers with the Highland Heather Stampin’ Write Marker.  This layer was adhered to the inside using snail adhesive.

This card was quick and easy, yet looks very elegant.  A quick change of sentiments and this could be a thank you, thinking of you or even a sympathy card.  If you’d like to make these for yourself but need supplies, I would appreciate your business.  I have included links to my online store for all supplies used below.

Remember – We are currently celebrating “Bonus Days”, which means for each $50 you spend in August you get $5 to spend in September!

Best Birds Birthday

Hi Stampers. Today I’d like to share with you a card that we made in class last spring using the stamp set Best Birds from Stampin’ Up! This adorable card is quick and easy to make.

Handmade birthday card made with Stampin' Up! Best Birds, Tripple Banner Punch and the Woodland TIEF by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts with a Soft Suede card base, 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored a 4 1/4″. Next up is a 4″ x 5 1/4″ layer of Very Vanilla cardstock that I ran through the Big Shot with the Woodlands textured impressions embossing folder. The banner is made by using a 2″ x 5″ strip of cardstock (I used Marina Mist here – that has since retired, but any color would work). The end of the banner was punched with the Triple Banner Punch.  The dry embossed layer is adhered to the card front and the banner was adhered over that with snail adhesive.

Handmade birthday card made with Stampin' Up! Best Birds, Tripple Banner Punch and the Woodland TIEF by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The bird and branch from the Stampin’ Up! Best Birds stamp set was stamped onto a 3″ x 3″ square of Very Vanilla CS in Soft Suede ink. I mounted that onto a 3 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ square of Soft Suede CS with snail adhesive and then the two of those were adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The Birds & Blooms Thinlits Dies has a small flower that can be used to die cut the two flowers that I added to the upper left and lower right corners of the focal point square.  I added a basic Pearl Jewel in the center of each flower.

Handmade birthday card made with Stampin' Up! Best Birds, Tripple Banner Punch and the Woodland TIEF by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The interior of the card is lined with a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Very Vanilla CS.  I stamped the branches and the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Best Birds set in Soft Suede ink on to this layer and then used snail adhesive to adhere it to the interior of the card.

Again, I apologize that I used a retired color, but I hope this layout gets you thinking.  This same layout can be done in a variety of colors and using a variety of stamp sets and embossing folders.  Use this card as a starting point to YOUR amazing creation!
