Spirited Snowmen That Sparkle & Shine

Hi Stampers. Welcome to the Pals monthly blog hop. We’re so glad you’re here! December is time for glitz and bling with  “All that Sparkles & Shines”. Today we feature projects that sparkle or shine. Maybe even a little of both.

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! Spirited Snowmen and Farmhouse Christmas card in a box that sparkles and shines by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

When this blog hop asked for something that Sparkles and Shines, I knew this card had lots of both!  This is a custom card in a box that I made for a client.  This Blueberry Bushel card in a box was covered in Sparkle Glimmer Paper. She wanted it to say something specific and it was customized to her needs. (That’s why some of the words are blurred out). So, the three side panels were printed from  my computer onto Whisper White CS and sponged the edges with Blueberry Bushel ink using a sponge dauber. I then added some snowflakes that were die cut from Sparkle Glimmer Paper using the Big Shot and the Blizzards Thinlit Die. (The blizzard die, just happens to be on sale *wink wink*). A few clear faceted gems added just a little more sparkle and shine.

I stamped the snowmen from the Stampin’ Up! Spirited Snowmen stamp set in Memento Black ink and colored them with the Stampin’ Blends Markers. The snowmen were then fussy cut and adhered to the box using glue dots. I also added a few extra snowflakes around them.  The snowflakes are attached to clear acetate strips and the card with glue dots.  I stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment from the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set in Blueberry Bushel ink and cut it out with a circle from the Circles Framelit Dies. Behind that I have a piece of Pacific Point CS that was cut with a scalloped circle from the Circles Framelit Dies. The circles were attached to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

If you are looking for the measurements to all the pieces here, they can be found on this prior post. There you will find a PDF tutorial and a video.

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s hoppers. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created. Don’t forget to show us some love by commenting on our creations.

Twist and Pop Panel Card – Seasonal Fun

Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop BadgeHi Stampers. Welcome to the Global Stamping Friends Seasonal Blog Hop.  Today we are featuring “seasons”.  I chose to create a Twist and Pop Panel Christmas card. I used a couple different stamps sets to get the look and greeting I was looking for.  But, once you figure out how this card works, you can make them with all sorts of themes and stamp sets.  I have included a video below to show you how it’s made.

Stampin' Up! Twist and Pop Panel Card Tin of Tags and Winter Woods by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

My card starts with a Merry Merlot card base, 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″. The front of the card has a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of the Joyous Noel DSP and a 4″ x 3″ piece of Sparkling Glimmer Paper that I put through the big shot with the slop die from the In The Woods thinlit dies. I die cut the tree out of Tranquil Tide CS with the In The Woods thinlit dies. A little liquid glue and some Dazzling Diamonds glitter gives the effect of snow.

Inside the twist and pop panel card I have a 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ piece of Tranquil Tide CS, top and bottom.  These are covered by a 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of Whisper White. On the top one, I accented it with a 1″ x 3 3/4″ strip of Merry Merlot CS, followed by a 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ strip of the same Joyous Noel DSP used on the front of the card. On the bottom panel, I stamped the tree from the Winter Woods stamp set in Tranquil Tide ink. The greeting, from the Spirited Snowman stamp set is stamped in Merry Merlot ink.

The video below show how to create the mechanism that makes the panels twist and pop.  On the Merry Merlot CS panels I have layered Tranquil Tide CS and Whisper White CS Squares stamped with stamps from the Tin of Tags stamp set, alternating Merry Merlot and Tranquil Tide ink!

This is such a fun card and it’s even more fun to see the look on peoples face when they open it!  I hope you give it a try.

If lie in the United States and you don’t already have a demonstrator, I would appreciate the opportunity to be YOUR demo. You can use the links below to purchase any or all of the products used in the making of this card.  If you have any questions, feel free to email me.  I’m here to help!

Ho Ho Ho Christmas Gift Box

Hi Stampers. Welcome to the November, 2018 Blog Hop with Stampin’ Pretty Pals. Holiday cards are done. It’s time to start on gifts and gift wrap. Let the Stampin’ Pretty Pals inspire you with “Anything But A Card” today.

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. My project is a Christmas Gift Box that say’s HO HO HO using the large letters framelit dies and Lindor Truffles (could also be Ferrero Rocher or any other round covered candies about that size).

Stampin' Up! Large Letter Framelit Dies Ho Ho Ho Christmas gift box by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The box is made out of Real Red CS in three pieces – top, bottom and insert.  For the top of the box I cut a piece of Real Red CS 4 1/8″ x 10 1/8″.  This piece was scored at 3/4″ from all sides and burnished with a bone folder. Then I snipped the corners and adhered the tabs to the adjacent side. The top of the box is decorated with 8 1/4″ x 2 1/4″ layer of Basic Black CS followed by a 8″ x 2″ layer of Real Red CS.  Using the Snowflake Sentiments stamps set, I stamped the greeting and snowflakes in Versamark ink. (Don’t forget to use the embossing buddy to prevent the powder from sticking where you don’t want it).  I then added Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder, tapped off the excess and heated with the heat tool.

The bottom of the box was made using a 5″ x 11″ piece of Real Red CS, scored at 1 1/4″ from each for the four sides. I snipped the corners and adhered the tabs to the adjacent sides. (Watch the video below to see how I made this gift box).

Stampin' Up! Large Letter Framelit Dies Ho Ho Ho Christmas gift box by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The insert was created out of a piece of Real Red CS 3 3/8″ x 9 3/8″, scored at 1/2″ from each of the four sides. I die cut 3 “H” letters out of Gold Foil Paper using the Large Letters Framelit dies and the Big Shot. The “O” letters were cut out of Gold Foil Paper using two of the circle dies from the Layering Circles Framelit Dies and the Big Shot. I placed the letters onto the insert to determine where they would go and made marks with a pencil where each “O” would be.  Then using the smaller of the two circle dies used to make the “O”, I cut a whole in the insert where each “O” will be. Each letter was then glued in place using liquid adhesive. I then snipped the corners and adhered the tabs to the adjacent sides. The Lindor Truffles are held in place using a glue dot on each end and adhering behind each “O” in the insert.  The insert was placed inside the box (no adhesive needed).

Here is a video tutorial on the making of this gift box:

Circles Blog Hop

Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop Badge

 

Hi Stampers. Welcome to the Global Stampin’ Friends Circles Blog Hop.  We will all be featuring cards and projects with circles in them. I’m busy packing to head out of town, away from the threat of snow and into the tropics!  We are flying to Florida first thing tomorrow morning and then sailing out of Miami on Monday and will be cruising the Western Caribbean for a week!  I’m so excited!!

Since  I’m feeling cold today, I chose to work with the Spirited Snowmen set from Stampin’ Up!.  This “fall” was WAY TOO SHORT!  We already had our first snow a few weeks ago. 🙁

Stampin Up Spirited Snowmen love never melts handmade circle card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts with a Tranquil Tide card base, 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″.  For the snowflake background, I adhered a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of the Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper using multipurpose liquid adhesive. (I used the liquid glue because I wanted the glue all over, so when I cut the circle out of the middle the edges still stuck to the card front.)

Using the Layering Circles Framelit dies and the big shot, I cut a circle out of the upper center of the card front.  I then cut a slightly larger scalloped circle out of Tranquil Tide CS, using the same Layering Circles Framelit dies and the big shot. Using the same circle die from the original circle, I cut a circle out of the scalloped circle – this gave me a frame. I adhered the frame around the circle cutout in the card front using multipurpose liquid glue.  The sentiment was stamped in Tranquil Tide ink onto a 2 3/4″ x 3/4″ strip of Whisper White CS.  The sentiment was then layered onto a 3″ x 1″ strip of Tranquil Tide CS and that was adhered to the card front using stampin’ dimensionals.

Placing the interior 4″ x 5 1/4″ inside the card (without adhering), I made small little marks with a pencil so I would know where to stamp the snowmen.  The snowmen were stamped in Memento Black ink and colored with the Stampin’ Blends. I used Wink of Stella over all the areas that are “snow” to make it shine a little.  It came out super cute!

Ribbon of Courage Roses

Hi Stampers. Wow, the month of October just flew by!  October is breast cancer awareness month. I wanted to be sure and post this card using the Stampin’ Up! Ribbon of Courage stamp set before October ended.  This card is perfect for anyone battling breast cancer.  Of course, you can change up the color and have it represent any cancer survivor.

Stampin' Up! Ribbon of Courage handmade card for breast cancer by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I this new fold I have discovered.  It’s simple and yet a little bit different.  This card starts with a Blushing Bride card base that is just 4″ x 5 1/2″. Next is a 8″ x 5 1/4″ layer of Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper.  The DSP was scored at 4″ and again at 2″ and is then folded into a Z pattern.

Stampin' Up! Ribbon of Courage handmade card for breast cancer by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The top of the card has a 3″ x 4 1/4″ layer of Blushing Bride CS and 2 3/4″ x 4″ Whisper White CS. Onto the Whisper White layer, I stamped the ribbon (from the Stampin’ Up! Ribbon of Courage stamp set) in Blushing Bride ink.  The word “couage” was stamped onto a 3″ x 1/2″ strip of Whisper White in Blushing Bride ink.  I then flagged the ends with my paper snips and sponged the edges with Blushing Bride ink. The banner was attached to the card front with stampin’ dimensionals.

The inside of the card also has a 3″ x 4 1/4″ layer of Blushing Bride CS and 2 3/4″ x 4″ Whisper White CS. Onto the Whisper White layer, I stamped the sentiment (also from the Stampin’ Up! Ribbon of Courage stamp set) in Blushing Bride ink.

Snowflake Showcase Blog Hop

Hi Stampers. Thank you for stopping by my blog on today’s blog hop featuring the limited release Snowflake Showcase!  During the month of November only – Stampin’ Up! is featuring some new limited release products. We are here to show you all the ways these great new products can be used!

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Showcase special for November 2018 Limited Release products

The Snowflake Showcase features TWO new stamp sets and a fantastic new set of framelits that work with BOTH stamp sets! In addition to that, there are some cute snowflake embellishments and some fabulous Whisper White velvet paper!  What’s not to love????

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Showcase Snow is Glistening stamp set Christmas card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For my card I’m choosing to use a new fold I recently discovered.  It’s a great way to use our gorgeous Designer Series Papers!  This card starts with a Merry Merlot card base that is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.  The Joyous Noel DSP layer is 8″ x 4″, scored at 4″ and 2″ and folded in an “N”.

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Showcase Snow is Glistening stamp set Christmas card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The top of the card has a 3″ x 4 1/4″ layer of Merry Merlot CS and 2 3/4″ x 4″ Very Vanilla CS. Onto the Very Vanilla layer, I stamped the tree in Shaded Spruce ink and the trunk in Soft Suede ink. (Note: the tree stamp is taller than shown, I just inked the top part of the tree and not the bottom, making it shorter).

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Showcase Snow is Glistening stamp set Christmas card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I rubbed the Very Vanilla layer withe my embossing buddy (to prevent powder from sticking where I didn’t want it). Then I stamped the snowflakes with Versamark ink and heat embossed them with copper embossing powder – this made them match the DSP I used. Some shimmery embossing paste under the tree gives the look of snow and some rhinestones (colored with Stampin’ Blends or Sharpie markers) give the look of ornaments.

The inside of the card has the same size CS inserts.  (Merry Merlot CS – 3″ x 4 1/4″ and Very Vanilla CS – 2 3/4″ x 4″). I stamped the sentiment and falling snowflakes onto the Very Vanilla layer with Merry Merlot ink using the hinge method of stamping on my Stamparatus. The falling snowflakes stamp was designed to work with the Stamparatus for perfect placement to continue a row of these without a space or overlapping – how awesome is that!?!?
