Wedding Pocket Card – Pals Blog Hop

Hi Stampers.

Welcome to the Pals’ August  Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects for “Special Occasions”  – cards or projects that adds beauty to the special occasions we all love to make cards for! 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 full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Stampin' Up! Wonderful Moments Wedding Pocket Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I chose to make a wedding card using the Wonderful Moments stamp set and the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper.  The daughter of a friend is getting married next year and her colors are dark red and gray, so I used Merry Merlot and Basic Gray cardstock.  She’s young, she must know what’s on trend – right?!?

I chose to make it a pocket card where the two sides are triangles that folded in and I layered ovals over the center.  I stamped the bride in Smokey Slate ink and colored using Stampin’ Blends.

Stampin’ Tip: I actually stamped on scrap paper first and then onto the Whisper White CS without re-inking.  This is referred to as second generation stamping.  It made a lighter image outline, so my coloring stood out more than the lines.

The  dress is accented using the Shimmery Whisper White Embossing Powder.  I just love how it makes her dress sparkle!!

Stampin’ Tip: I filled a dried out blender pen with Versamark refill ink. This allowed me to draw where I wanted the embossing powder to go (between the outlines, but not over them).  Then I sprinkled the embossing powder and heated with the heat tool to melt it.

The inside pull out section is a (4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″) layer of Basic Gray CS covered with a (4″ x 5-1/4″) layer of Whisper White CS and a 1/2″ x 4″ strip of the DSP at the top.  I also added the same DSP to the flap of my envelope.  I love it when everything matches!

I stamped the sentiment in Merry Merlot ink into the center of the Whisper White layer.  Next, I punched a 1/8″ hole in the center of the top and added Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.

Here is a diagram of how I cut my 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of Merry Merlot CS for my base.  For the DSP, I used two pieces of 3-1/4″ x 5-3/8″ and cut from the left side of the short side to the middle of the long side.  I attached these layers to my card using snail adhesive.

ICS Blog Hop Floating Frame Technique

Hi Stampers.  Welcome to my debut on the Inspire, Create & Share Blog Hop Team.  Today our theme is Beautiful Bundles! I chose to do a floating frame technique with the It Starts With Art bundle.

Stampin' Up! It Starts With Art floating frame technique tutorial instructions by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card is made using Glad Press & Seal.  I found mine to be a bit too sticky, so I patted it with my hands (letting the oils from my hands transfer to the press & seal) making it less sticky.

Stampin' Up! It Starts With Art floating frame technique tutorial instructions by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I started by stamping the items from the It Starts With Art stamp set in Memento Black ink onto Whisper White CS and coloring them with my Stampin’ Blends.  They were then cut out using the Arts & Crafts Dies and placed randomly on a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Whisper White CS.

Stampin' Up! It Starts With Art floating frame technique tutorial instructions by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Next, I placed the press & seal over the top of the pieces and trimmed off the excess with my paper snips.  Can you tell that my press & seal was decorated in Disney Frozen… LOL

Stampin' Up! It Starts With Art floating frame technique tutorial instructions by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Using a circle die from the Layering Circles Dies, I cut a circle from the middle of this layer (with the press & seal still in place).

Stampin' Up! It Starts With Art floating frame technique tutorial instructions by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

After cutting the circle out, I gently pealed off the press & seal, keeping the stamped pieces on the plastic wrap. Next, I used ALOT of stampin’ dimensionals – regular size and mini to place a dimensional on every single piece of CS.

Stampin' Up! It Starts With Art floating frame technique tutorial instructions by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For card one, I used a Gorgeous Grape cardbase – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″.  The outside layer from the process above was placed onto a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Whisper White by exposing the sticky on the dimensionals and placing the CS very gently removing the press & seal.  I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap of Whisper White CS in Coastal Cabana ink and punched it out with the 1″ circle punch. Using the Stitched Shapes Dies, I die cut a slightly larger stitched circle from Highland Heather CS.  I mounted the two of these in the center of the circle in the card front.

Stampin' Up! It Starts With Art floating frame technique tutorial instructions by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For this card, I stamped onto a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Whisper White CS. For the buttons I just stamped directly onto the inside of the card base using Coastal Cabana, Highland Heather & Blushing Bride.  For the ink bottle I stamped with the Memento Black ink and colored with the Stampin’ Blends.

Stampin' Up! It Starts With Art floating frame technique tutorial instructions by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For card two, I used a Thick Whisper White CS – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″.  Onto this card front, I exposed the sticky on the dimensionals and attached the circle part of the process above and then very gently removed the press and seal.  I stamped the sentiment in Coastal Cabana ink onto a 3/4″ x 3-1/2″ strip of Whisper White CS. Next, I cut a strip of Blushing Bride CS 1″ x 3-1/2″, a strip of Coastal Cabana CS 3/4″ x 4″ and a piece of Highland Heather CS 1/2″ x 4-1/4.  I flagged the end of each of these strips using the Triple Banner Punch and then arranged and attached them to the lower part of the card front using snail adhesive.

Stampin' Up! It Starts With Art floating frame technique tutorial instructions by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Because this is a Whisper White cardbase, there was no need to line the inside.  For the buttons I just stamped directly onto the inside of the card base using Coastal Cabana, Highland Heather & Blushing Bride.  For the ink bottle I stamped with the Memento Black ink and colored with the Stampin’ Blends.

I did this technique with a different stamp set for one of my Facebook Lives on my FaceBook Page.  You can find that and many other great ideas on my YouTube channel.

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop

Hi Stampers.

Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop! We are all fans of this monthly crafting kit and want to share with you our enthusiasm for this box of fun and creativity. The beauty of the Paper Pumpkin kit is that you can follow the directions provided in the kit to make the projects as they were designed, or use the supplies as a starting point and let your creativity run wild. On this hop we will be sharing lots of ideas with you on how to use this March Paper Pumpkin kit: May Good Things Grow.

Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin July 2019 paper pumpkin possibilities alternative ideas blog hop by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations
For July, we were given a beautiful kit to work with that coordinates with existing product from our Annual Catalog.  I chose to work with the nautical portion of this kit and add a pizza box and the stamp set, High Tide to make it a little something different.
Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin July 2019 paper pumpkin possibilities alternative ideas blog hop by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations
I used the card base that came in the kit and added a 3-3/4″ x 5″ piece of Mossy Meadow CS and a 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″ piece of Whisper White CS.  I started by cutting a large circle out of a scrap piece of CS using the Layering Circles dies and sponged Calypso Coral ink and Pumpkin Pie ink to create a large sun.
Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin July 2019 paper pumpkin possibilities alternative ideas blog hop by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations
Next, I used the High Tide stamp set to stamp the water waves using Seaside Spray ink.  Over the stamped waves, I sponged some Pumpkin Pie ink and Calypso Coral ink to create the sun reflection down the middle at an angle. Seaside Spray ink was then sponged on either side of the reflection.

The sailboat is from the kit and is attached to the card front using mini stampin’ dimensionals. The birds from the High Tide stamp set were stamped in the upper right corner in Basic Gray ink.
Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin July 2019 paper pumpkin possibilities alternative ideas blog hop by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations
On the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the kit in Basic Gray ink and the seashell (also from the kit) in Sahara Sand ink.  I love how this card came out!
Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin July 2019 paper pumpkin possibilities alternative ideas blog hop by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations
To coordinate with the card, I decorated on of the Stampin’ Up! Pizza boxes. All the pieces used in the decorating of the box were from the kit. I cut up one of the card bases, the solid mossy meadow color was on the back side of the card base and the stripes were on the front.  The sentiment was stamped onto the strip (from the kit) in Night of Navy ink and attached with stampin’ dimensionals. The linen thread and the wheel were tucked behind the sentiment.
As you see here – and will see throughout the rest of the hop, there are many possibilities with this adorable kit!

How to Use Embossing Paste – Ombre’ Technique

Hi Stampers. Welcome to the Pals’ July  Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects that are “Mixing It Up” –  adding texture that will really take your projects up a notch – or two! 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 full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Stampin Up! Leave a Little Sparkle handmade unicorn stamp using ombre method with embossing paste by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For my card, I decided to show you how to use the ombre’ technique using embossing paste.  How to use embossing paste may seem a little intimidating, but it’s really not. A little messy – yes – but, not hard. I used the Shimmery White Embossing paste and the highland heather and gorgeous grape ink refills to create the ombre’ effect.

Stampin Up! Leave a Little Sparkle handmade unicorn stamp using ombre method with embossing paste by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B CreationsInstructions:

The card starts with a Bermuda Bay 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 Coastal Cabana CS. I applied the embossing paste to a 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ piece of Whisper White CS with the diamond mask from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks.

Stampin’ Tip:  To create the ombre’ effect with the embossing paste.  Starting with about a tablespoon of Shimmery White Embossing Paste on a piece of plastic, I added one drop of Highland Heather ink refill and stirred with the palette knife.  I then applied some to the upper left corner. Next, I added one more drop of the Highland Heather ink refill, stirred and applied more of the paste a little further down.  Finally, I added one drop of the Gorgeous Grape ink refill, stirred and applied it to the bottom of the mask. Voila! You have the ombre’ effect.

Stampin Up! Leave a Little Sparkle handmade unicorn stamp using ombre method with embossing paste by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

After adhering the Coastal Cabana CS to the card front, then the embossing paste layer to that using snail adhesive – it was time to add the unicorn.  Using the unicorn from the Leave a Little Sparkle stamp set, I stamped in Tuxedo black ink onto a piece of Whisper White CS. I colored the unicorn using the Stampin’ Blends markers. (LOVE those Stampin’ Blends!!)

Stampin Up! Leave a Little Sparkle handmade unicorn stamp using ombre method with embossing paste by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The unicorn did not have a die, but I wanted the unicorn cut out.  Enter my Brother Scan N Cut CM350 – I love this thing! I was able to load it into the machine, push a few buttons and poof – my unicorn was ready to go!  Using the Dark Smoky Slate blends I colored in the .004 border that I had told the machine to cut around my unicorn.  This gave it a little extra pop when I attached it to my card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin Up! Leave a Little Sparkle handmade unicorn stamp using ombre method with embossing paste by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

In the lower right corner I put the sentiment.  I inked my stamp “believe” using the Stampin’ Write markers – Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape.  The brush tip of both markers were applied to different areas of the stamp and then stamped onto the scrap of Whisper White CS.  Using the Layering Ovals Dies, I die cut the sentiment and then a scalloped oval from Bermuda Bay CS. The two ovals are adhered together using multipurpose liquid glue and then to the card front using stampin’ dimensionals.

Stampin Up! Leave a Little Sparkle handmade unicorn stamp using ombre method with embossing paste by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B CreationsDecorating the interior of the card:

Inside the card is a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Coastal Cabana CS followed by a 3-3/4″ x 5″ layer of Whisper White CS that I stamped onto.  Using more stamps from the Leave a Little Sparkle stamp set and my Stampin’ Write markers again, I stamped the sentiment and the swirls and stars. The stars are colored in using the dark Purple Posey stampin’ blend. I finished off the card by adding wink of stella to the word sparkle, the stars, swirls and the unicorn mane and tail.

Stampin’ Tip: By using the brush tip of the Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape stampin’ write markers, I was able to ink the stamp with multiple colors and create an ombre’ effect with the stamps.  This matched the ombre’ embossing paste on the card.

Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop Badge

Hi Stampers.  Welcome to the July Global Stamping Friends blog hop. This month we are featuring Stampin’ Up! in-colors.  The 2019-2020 in-colors are: Blueberry Bushel, Call Me Clover, Pineapple Punch, Lovely Lipstick & Grapefruit Grove.  The 2019-2021 in-colors are: Pretty Peacock, Seaside Spray, Terracotta Tile, Purple Posey & Rococo Rose. At the bottom of my post is an arrow to take you to the next blog in our hop.  In case you get lost, I have also provided a blog hop line-up.

Stampin' Up! 2019-2021 in-color comparison by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creawtios

For those of you wondering…  Here is a quick comparison of the 2019-2021 in-colors to those in the existing Stampin’ Up! color palette.

Stampin' Up! 2019-2021 in colors Abstract Impressions handmade thank you card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I chose to use the new 2019-2021 in-colors and the Abstract Impressions stamp set and the coordinating Springtime Impressions Dies. Each card base is 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″ – one in each of the new 2019-2021 in-colors.

Stampin' Up! 2019-2021 in colors Abstract Impressions handmade thank you card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I used a die cutting machine and the large Springtime Impressions dies in the same color and glued it to the same color card base using the fine-tip glue pen.

Stampin' Up! 2019-2021 in colors Abstract Impressions handmade thank you card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations Pretty Peacock

I paired each in color with an existing color in our Stampin’ Up! color palette. With the Pretty Peacock, I paired Mint Macaron.  The Mint Macaron layer is 3-1/2″ x 2-3/4″, followed by a 3-1/4″ x 2-1/2″ layer of Whisper White layer that I stamped on.

Stampin' Up! 2019-2021 in colors Abstract Impressions handmade thank you card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations Pretty Peacock

Inside each card is a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Whisper White CS.  In the lower right corner of each inside layer I stamped another 2-step flower from the Abstract Impressions stamp set in the two colors and a leave in Old Olive.  It is then adhered to the inside using snail adhesive.

Stampin' Up! 2019-2021 in colors Abstract Impressions handmade thank you card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations Purple Posey

I paired Highland Heather with my Purple Posey card.  I was one of the lucky (?) ones to be able to order a Purple Posey ink pad at OnStage.  It foams each time I try to stamp with it, so Stampin’ Up! has ordered the manufacturer to repair this before we sell it again.  As you can see here, the image is a little blurry due to the foaming… 🙁

With the Rococo Rose, I paired Blushing Bride. The stamps are all from the Abstract Impressions stamp set.  The flowers are two step (using the two colors) and then the leaves are two step using Pear Pizazz and Old Olive. The the “Thank You” is stamped in the featured in-color.

Stampin' Up! 2019-2021 in colors Abstract Impressions handmade thank you card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations Seaside Spray

I paired Blueberry Bushel with Seaside Spray. For all the front flowers and stems I used the Stamparatus, it worked great!  If you don’t have one of these yet  – you want one!  I was able to place step one on one plate and step two on the other plate.  The flowers were on one side and the leaves on the other.  This made my project go quickly and kept them all looking the same, which was my intention.

I chose to pair Calypso Coral with the Teracotta Tile.  The colors are very close! On each of these cards the coordinating color is adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the Whisper White layer I stamped onto is adhered over that using snail adhesive.

Free As A Bird Double Point Fold Card

Hi Stampers.

Welcome to the Pals’ June  Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects using “Anything with Wings” 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 full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Stampin' Up! Free As A Bird bundle Bird Ballad DSP double point fold handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For my card, I chose to use the new Free As A Bird Bundle and the coordinating Bird Ballad DSP.  This card is a double point fold card. The two triangles on the sides are 4″ x 3″ folded DSP.

Stampin' Up! Free As A Bird bundle Bird Ballad DSP double point fold handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Each 4″ x 3″ piece of DSP was marked at 2″ down and 2″ across and scored between those two points, on both sides.  It is then folded at the 1″ line at the bottom.  See the above diagram for an example.

Stampin' Up! Free As A Bird bundle Bird Ballad DSP double point fold handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The 1″ part of the folded DSP was adhered to the back side of a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White CS.  That was then adhered to a basic card base 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored at 4-1/4″. The front of the card has a layer of Crumb Cake CS and a layer of Whisper White CS that have been die cut using the Stitched Nested Label Dies (the dies that go with the Free As A Bird bundle). Onto the Whisper White label I stamped the outside sentiment from the Kindness & Compassion stamp set. The two little birds are fussy cut from the Bird Ballad DSP.

Stampin' Up! Free As A Bird bundle Bird Ballad DSP double point fold handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The labels were only adhered to the triangle on the left side, so that it will open.  Behind the points, when you open it, there is another sentiment.  This one is stamped in Pool Party ink.  I also added a layer of DSP to the flap of the envelope by putting snail on the flap, laying the DSP on it and then trimming off the excess with my paper snips.

When you open the card, there is an inside layer of Whisper White CS (4″ x 5-1/4″). I adhered a 1″ x 4″ strip of DSP on the right side of this layer and stamped the sentiment (from the Well Said stamp set) in Pool Party ink.

Stampin’ Tip: With this fold there is the option to put it on a basic card base, as I have done here, or you can just adhered it to a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of colored CS, so it only opens once (from the points).
