Wicked Folds Blog Hop

Hi Stampers.

Welcome to the Pals October, 2018 Blog Hop. It’s a spooky time of year so watch out for “Wicked Folds” while you hop from blog to blog. We promise not to be too scary.

You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Stampin' Up! Toil & Trouble Halloween BOO box candy holder by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I just love that we are featuring “wicked folds”.  If you follow me at all, you know that I love fancy fold cards!  I make them a lot! But, I had recently made these adorable “Boo Boxes” for a recent craft fair and decided to use this project for the hop.  This “Boo Box” involves lots of folds. 🙂

Stampin' Up! Toil & Trouble Halloween BOO box candy holder by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This box started with a 5″ x 7 3/4″ piece of Basic Black CS – it was scored at 1 1/4″ from each side (this is the bottom of the finished box).  The top of the box is a 4 1/8″ x 6 7/8″  piece of Basic Black CS, scored at 3/4″ from each side. The insert is a 3 3/8″ x 6 1/8″ piece of Basic Black CS, scored at 1/2″ from each side.  I then used the Stampin’ Up! Layering Alphabet Dies to die cut the “B” out of Pumpkin Pie CS. The “Os” were made using two circles from the Layering Circles Framelit Dies and Pumpkin Pie CS.

The box is decorated with Toil & Trouble DSP – 2 3/8″ x 5 1/8″, adhered to the top of the box. To go over that, I die cut the Cauldron and the Cat from the Toil & Trouble DSP and adhered them to a 2″ x 4 3/4″ piece of Very Vanilla CS.  I then stamped “Happy Halloween” from the Cauldron Bubble Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape between these two. This layer was then adhered over the Toil & Trouble DSP layer on the top of the box.

Before folding up the sides of the insert of the box, I die cut the two “Os” using the smaller of the two circles I made the “Os” out of. I then adhered the letters onto the insert using liquid glue.  The corners were cut according to the video below and then the box was put together with tear and tape adhesive.

When the box it finished you can insert round candies (such as Ferrero Rocher or Lindor Chocolates) in to the holes for the “O’s”.

I also made some “Ho Ho Ho Boxes” that is very similar (just a little bit longer) and recently made that box on a Facebook Live. (I do Facebook Live on my Facebook Page at 2:30pm (MT) each Monday). Watching this video will explain how this box is assembled. You can see that HERE:

Card Sets Blog Hop

Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop Badge

Hi Stampers.

I’m sorry I’m been a little MIA here on my blog.  I’ve been crazy busy getting ready for a large craft fair. I’ve also be doing Facebook Live every Monday at 2:30pm on my Facebook page.  You want to make sure you are a member on my page and turn on alerts to know when I go live.  I even give away prizes on occasion. 🙂

Today we were asked to make a card set to showcase.  This works out perfectly, since I’ve maid several sets for my craft fair.  This particular set has a really fun fancy fold done with the Stampin’ Up! Springtime Impressions Thinlit dies.

This card has a standard 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ card base, scored at 4 1/4″.  I used Blackberry Bliss cardstock for the card base and Whisper White CS for the inside and for the 1/2 of the butterfly.

I also used our clear acetate boxes.  These boxes easily hold 5 or 6 cards with envelopes.These boxes are easy to miss, but are found on page 193 of the Stampin’ Up! 2018-2019 Annual Catalog. I tied a strip of our beautiful 3/8″ Silver Metallic edge ribbon and tied a bow on the front.

The video below will show you how I cut the 1/2 of the butterfly out of the card base.  Basically, I use the big shot and position the top cutting plate in the center of the buttterfly, only cutting out half of it.  I then cut a second butterfly using Whisper White CS and cut it in half and adhered it on the left front of the card base.

With the butterfly (and other detailed dies), I recommend you use the Stampin’ Up! Precision Base Plate to cut it and the Die Brush to remove all the small pieces.  These two items make life much easier. I store my die brush and foam mat in a wood mount stamp case.  You can buy our stamp cases separately (page 206 of the Annual Catalog) and they are very useful in keeping organized in your craft room.

I recently featured how to do this on Facebook Live.  I upload all my Facebook Live videos to YouTube.  So, if you like, you can subscribe there too!

Festive Farmhouse – Pals Holiday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers.

Welcome to the Pals September, 2018 Blog Hop. The 2018 Holiday Catalog from Stampin’ Up! Is out and the Pals are excited! Sit back while we share creations from “Our Favorite Holiday”.

You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Stampin' Up! Festive Farmhoue Bundle Under The Mistletoe DSP handmade Christmas card using a fancy fold with an ordinary framelit with video by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I chose to use the Farmhouse Christmas bundle to create this fancy fold card.  The farmhouse framelit, from the Farmhouse Framelit Dies, was used as my main image and fancy fold part of the card. Over the years Stampin’ Up! has sold various fancy fold thinlits that specifically do a fold similar to this, but I do it a different was using an ordinary framelit.

Stampin' Up! Festive Farmhoue Bundle Under The Mistletoe DSP handmade Christmas card using a fancy fold with an ordinary framelit with video by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts with a basic card base, 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″.  I then scored the card at 2 1/8″, down an inch from the top and up an inch from the bottom (not scoring in the middle).  Then I centered the farmhouse framelit over this 2 1/8″ spot on the Big Shot.  I placed the top big shot plate over the 1/2 of the die I wanted it to cut, and not over the part I did not want cut.  (You can see how I did this in the FB live video below). On the far left side (where the die did not cut), I glued a 1 7/8″ x 4″ piece of Under the Mistletoe DSP with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

For the interior of the card I used a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Whisper White CS. I used Stampin’ Write markers to ink up the stamps for the sentiments, from the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set. The Merry Christmas, I colored in Shaded Spruce ink and the “from our house to yours” in Old Olive ink. A 1/2″ x 4″ strip of DSP glued to the right side with snail adhesive helped the inside match the outside.

I then stamped the farmhouse, from the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set in Memento Black ink onto a piece of Whisper White CS approx. 2 1/2″ x 2 1/4″. I colored the roof with Basic Black Stampin’ Blends combo pack. The shutters were colored with Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends combo pack. I colored the door with the Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends combo pack. The windows were colored with the light Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blends to give the appearance of lights on inside the house.

The farmhouse was then glued over the top of the cutout of the right side of the farmhouse and over the DSP on the left. This a top view of the card, showing how the fancy fold on this card works.

This is how the card looks fully open.  I hope you enjoy this card and give it a try.  I have included a Facebook Live video (that has been uploaded to my YouTube channel) showing how I made this card.

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.

Picked For You Teacher Gift

Hi Stampers. Thank you for those of you who voted for me in Kylie’s International Highlights!  I’m happy to say that I won 3rd place!  You can see my post from August 8th with my winning card – HERE.  Today we are doing a blog hop of the top 10 winners of Kylie’s International Highlights.  We were asked to make teacher gifts.

Stampin' Up! picked for you teacher gift notepad in clear case made by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I chose to make a notebook, from our clear mount stamp cases, that matches the card that won me 3rd place.

Stampin' Up! picked for you teacher gift notepad in clear case made by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

As with the card, this gift features the Stampin’ Up! Large Letter Framelit Dies and the Picked for You stamp set.

Stampin' Up! picked for you teacher gift notepad in clear case made by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The inside of the case was first lined with a 7″ x 10 1/2″ piece of DSP.  I chose to use the green from the Tranquil Textures DSP. The reverse side didn’t match too well so, I lined 1/2 of the inside with a 7″ x 5″ piece of the same paper.  The front is a 4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ piece of Shaded Spruce CS and a 4 1/4″ x 6 1/4″ piece of Real Red cardstock.  The rest matches the card from my August 8th blog post. (You can go HERE for those directions.)  These pieces are placed between the outside of the case and the plastic cover, keeping this all neat and protecting it.

Stampin' Up! picked for you teacher gift notepad in clear case made by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

On the inside left you can see the green DSP behind the plastic.  I made this 3″ x 4″ envelope out of a 6″ x 6″ piece of Real Red CS on the Envelope Punch Board. The greetings were both stamped onto Whisper White CS.  The “You are Terrific” was cut out with a circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies. Behind that is a slightly larger Shaded Spruce circle cut out with the Layering Circles Framelit Dies.  The thanks was cut to 2 1/2″ x 1″ and the corners were rounded.

Stampin' Up! picked for you teacher gift notepad in clear case made by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

On the right side is a small notepad.  I used a piece of matching DSP to cover the top, making it match and adhered it to the inside with tear and tape adhesive.

Stampin' Up! picked for you teacher gift notepad in clear case made by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

On the back side. I stamped the “You are the Best!” in Real Red ink onto Whisper White CS and punched it out with the Pretty Label Punch.  I punched out a second shape out of Real Red CS using the Pretty Label Punch.  I cut the Real Red shape in half down the middle and adhered it behind the Whisper White shape letting a little bit of Real Red show on top and bottom. This two is between the case and outer cover.

I hope you like my project, all the products used are listed below with links to my store for purchase. Remember we are at the end of Bonus Days!  Buy $50 worth of Stampin’ Up! in the next few days to earn $5 to spend in September (when the 2018 Holiday Catalog is released!).  I invite you to hop along with the rest of the Top 10 by using the list below.

Stampin' Up! Cookie Cutter Christmas gingerbread men on a cookie sheet and Apron Builder framelit dies 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″. Next up is a 4″ x 5 1/4″ layer of Tranquil Textures DSP.  I used the Stampin’ Up! Apron Builder Framelit Dies to cut out the apron from the Shaded Spruce 2018-2020 In Color DSP. The cookie sheet was made with a 1 3/4″ x 3 1/2″ piece of Silver Foil CS. I used the Corner Trio Punch to round the four corners and then the Stampin’ Trimmer to score a line 1/4″ in from each side.

Stampin' Up! Cookie Cutter Christmas gingerbread men on a cookie sheet and Apron Builder framelit dies by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The 1/8″ hole punch was used to punch two holes at the top of the apron and I inserted a piece of silver cording into the two holes making a look on top. Then I adhered the cording to the back with tear and tape. To lengthen the apron I cut it in half (where the waist would go).  I adhered the top half of apron to top of silver foil on long side with tear and tape or snail. Then I adhered the bottom half of apron to bottom of silver foil on opposite long side. The apron was then attached to the front of the card with snail adhesive.

The two gingerbread men were stamped in Soft Suede ink onto a 2″ x 5″ piece of Whisper White CS. They were then punched out gingerbread men using Cookie Cutter Builder Punch. A scrap of Real Red CS was used to punch out the bow tie using the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch. I adhered bow tie (or hair bow) to gingerbread men using a mini glue dot and added a pearl accent to the center of each bow. The gingerbread men were attached to the  cookie sheet with mini glue dots.

The rolling pin was die cut from Crumb Cake CS and using the Apron Builder Framelit Dies.  The handles were colored with a Soft Suede marker and then I sponged Whisper White Craft ink onto the edges to resemble flour. Then I attached the rolling pin using mini glue dots.

For the inside of the card, I used a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Whisper White CS. I stamped the sentiment in Shaded Spruce ink and then stamped a gingerbread man in the lower right and upper left corners in Soft Suede ink.  This layer was than added to the interior of the card with snail adhesive.
