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.

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.

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.

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).

Beach Wedding Card-in-a-Box

Hi Stampers. Welcome to the Pals’ May  Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects with “More Than One Score.” 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! Beach Happy, High Tide, Beautiful Bouquet handmade Beach Wedding Card-in-a-box by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations for the Pals Blog Hop May 2019

For this hop, I decided to do a beach themed wedding card-in-a-box.  I’ve done card-in-a-box cards often.  You can find the video tutorial on this prior post. This card in a box starts with a Seaside Spray (a 2019-2021 in-color) card base, followed by sparkle Glimmer Paper and then Whisper White CS. I stamped onto the Whisper White CS.

Stampin' Up! Beach Happy, High Tide, Beautiful Bouquet handmade Beach Wedding Card-in-a-box by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations for the Pals Blog Hop May 2019

I cut waves out of some scrap Seaside Spray CS and used some 2-way glue and dazzling diamond glitter on the tips of the waves and attached them to the cross members first.  Next I stamped the palm trees from the Beach Happy stamp set in Garden Green and Soft Suede inks.  I used my Brother Scan-n-Cut to cut them out.  I attached them to the waves using strips of acetate for stability.

Stampin' Up! Beach Happy, High Tide, Beautiful Bouquet handmade Beach Wedding Card-in-a-box by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations for the Pals Blog Hop May 2019

The bride and groom hearts are cut out of Basic Black CS, Whisper White CS and Sparkle Glimmer Paper using the hearts from the Be Mine Dies. Using paper snips I cut the two sides off of the Whisper White heart and glued it onto the Basic Black heart to create the dress shirt. I used the Cookie Cuter Builder Punch to cut the bow tie from Basic Black CS and used a sponge dauber to put a little Whisper White ink to the edges of the bow tie to make it pop. I used my Take Your Pick tool to add pearl accents to the Sparkle Glimmer paper heart. These are attached to each other and to the front of the card box with mini glue dots.

Stampin' Up! Beach Happy, High Tide, Beautiful Bouquet handmade Beach Wedding Card-in-a-box by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations for the Pals Blog Hop May 2019

Using the Big Shot and the Bouquet Bunch dies I cut the bouquets out of Whisper White and Garden Green CS.  They are attached to the cross members with mini glue dots.  The sentiments are from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set and are stamped in Pacific Point ink. I used the palm tree from the Beach Happy set to put palm leaves on the edges of these layers.

Stampin' Up! Beach Happy, High Tide, Beautiful Bouquet handmade Beach Wedding Card-in-a-box by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations for the Pals Blog Hop May 2019

For around the bottom of the card-in-a-box I used the High Tide stamp set to create a beach scene.  I used Sahara Sand ink for the sand, Seaside Spray ink for the water (stamped the lines and used sponge dauber over them), a stamping sponge wedge was used to sponge Seaside Spray ink for the sky.  The sun is stamped in Mango Melody ink, the birds in Smokey Slate ink and the grass in the sand in Old Olive ink.

This card used alot of different supplies but wasn’t actually that difficult to make and I’m super happy with how it came out. I appreciate you visiting my blog and hope you leave me a comment below, so I know you were here.

Sneak Peek at New Annual Catalog

Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop Badge

Hi Stampers. Welcome to the latest Global Stamping Friends blog hop.  In today’s hop we will be featuring items that are in the new 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.  We will use both new and carry over items. I hope you find our blog hop inspiring and that you get creative along with us.

Sneak Peak Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop of new and carry over items. Shop with Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations at www.QueenBCreations.net

I love my job! Just last weekend I traveled to Salt Lake City to attend our OnStage convention. It was amazing! While I have attended these events for years, this was the first year that one of my team members was able to attend with me.  We had a blast!  I work for such a fabulous company and love hanging out with a room full of people who love what they do!  While we were there we each got a copy of the brand new catalog and some brand new Stampin’ Up! products. Today I will be showcasing one of my favorite bundles from the new catalog, It Starts With Art.

Stampin' Up! It Starts With Art Salt Lake City OnStage Display Board by Wendy Cranford

I attended Stampin’ Up! OnStage (basically our convention) in Salt Lake City and Wendy Cranford demonstrated this bundle.  She made this coupon portfolio and I knew I had to try it!  This would be awesome to hand out with a new catalog, making the three bookmarks each a coupon for buying Stampin’ Up from me. How fun would that be?!?!

Stampin' Up! It Starts With Art coupon portfolio by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This is my version. My version starts with a 12″ x 9″ piece of CS in one of the yummy new 2019-2020 in-colors – Seaside Spray. On the short side, I scored it at 6″, rotated the cardstock 90 degrees and scored at 6″ & 9″. I removed all the bottom 3″ on one of the panels as shown in the graphic below:

Stampin' Up! It Starts With Art coupon portfolio by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I adhered Follow Your Art DSP to my base. The 6″ x 3″ panels have a 5-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ pieces of DSP, while the 3″ x 3″ panels have 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ (note: make sure you are adhering to the reverse side, since those panels will fold up. Then I used a 1″ hole punch to cut a notch into each 3″ x 3″ panel. The bottom panels get folded up and attached with tear and tape on both sides of each panel. The “coupons” are 2-1/4″ x 5-1/4″ pieces of Thick Whisper White CS and slip into the pockets. Each of these “coupons is decorated with buttons cut out using the Arts & Crafts dies and a 1/8″ hole at the top with a strip of 1/8” ribbon in the top of each “coupon”.

Stampin' Up! It Starts With Art coupon portfolio by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For the cover, I used a 2-1/4″ x 5″ piece of Purple Poise CS followed by a 2″ x 4-3/4″ piece of Whisper White CS. Onto the Whisper White layer I stamped the sentiment in Pacific Point ink and stamped buttoms in Pacific Point, Blushing Bride, Coastal Cabana, Calypso Coral and Crushed Curry. (It was easy to decide which colors to use.  I just used the ones listed on the back on the pack of Follow Your Art DSP.

Stampin' Up! It Starts With Art coupon portfolio by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I stamped the stack of ribbons, ink refills and markers in Basic Gray ink and colored them with the Stampin’ Blends. I then cut these out using the Arts & Crafts dies. The marker and ink refill I adhered directly to the front, the ribbons were adhered over them using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Once it was done, it did not want to stay together (it’s kinda thick), so I created a belly band out of a 3/4″ x 7″ piece of Purple Posey CS. I’m just tickled pink how it came out!

Z-fold Tea Together Mother’s Day Card

Hi Stampers. Welcome to the Pals’ April  Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because we love to put our ”Families First”! Our Design Team created beautiful projects to inspire you. 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! Tea Together fancy fold handmade card Petal Promeade DSP by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I chose to make a Mother’s Day card. This z fold card starts with a base is a 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ piece of Mossy Meadow CS. Next, I took piece of Calypso Coral CS 11” x 5 ½” and scored it at 3 ½” and 7”. I then used the scallop edgelit from the Seasonal Layers thinlits dies on the right side of the card base. The Calypso Coral layer was attached to the Mossy Meadow card base. On card front, I adhered a 5-1/4” x 3-1/4” layer of the Petal Promenade DSP. I adhered another 5-1/4” x 3-1/4” piece of the Petal Promenade DSP (the same paper, other side).

Stampin' Up! Tea Together fancy fold handmade card Petal Promeade DSP by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I used the Tea Together Stamp set to stamp the Tea Pot, Teacup, large and small flowers in Versamark ink onto scraps of Whisper White CS. Next, I applied Silver Stampin’ emboss powder and melted with the heat tool. I colored these using the Stampin’ Blends markers. (Note: I used the light Petal Pink to just highlight a little on the teacup, because I didn’t want it to be too shocking white.) These items were then cut out using the Tea Time Framelit dies.

I attached the Tea Pot to the front of the card base using snail adhesive and the Teacup to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. After that, the ribbon was wrapped around the card and adhered to the Tea Pot using a mini glue dot and a small flower was adhered over that using a Stampin’ Dimensional.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment in Calypso Coral ink onto a piece of Whisper White CS 5-1/4” x 3-1/2” and attached the flowers. In conclusion, all that was left was to wrap the ribbon around the card and tie a bow on the right side. I’m thrilled with how it came out.

Spring Has Sprung – Wobble Card

Hi Stampers.

Welcome to the Pals’ March Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because ”Spring has Sprung” – at least on our blog hop if not outside! Our Design Team created beautiful projects to inspire you. 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.

When they announced that this blog hop would be called “Spring has Sprung”, the idea of a wobble card (on a spring) sounded perfect!  This little jumping frog from the 2019 Sale-A-Bration level 1 options looks like he should wobble.

I started this card with a Mossy Meadow card base, 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. The word hooray from the Stampin’ Up! Well Written thinlits dies were used on the big shot to cut the words out of Mossy Meadow, Old Olive and Pear Pizazz card stock.  On the Big Shot, the Cala lillies were cut out of Old Olive CS using the Catch of the Day thinlits dies.

The frog, from So Hoppy Together (a level 1 Sale-A-Bration item), was stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White CS using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I colored him using the Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Duo and cut him out using the paper snips. (If you were one of the lucky ones who got the coordinating Hop It Framelit dies before they sold out – you can use those.)

The spring was created by wrapping a 26 gauge wire around a paintbrush (or pencil, or straw, anything that size) leaving a 1/2″ straight piece at each end of the “spring”.  Attach one end of the “spring” to the back of the frog using tape and attach the other end to the card front using tape. Now it’s a “wobble card”!

For the inside of the card I used a piece of Whisper White CS, 4″ x 5-1/4″.  I stamped the frog, crown and butterfly from the So Hoppy Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink. The frog was colored with Old Olive Stampin’ Blends duo, the crown was colored with the dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend and the butterfly was colored with the Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends duo. The sentiment, from the Well Said stamp set was also stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.

I used the Tropical Escape DSP to decorate the flap on a Whisper White Medium Envelope. It came out super cute.  I hope you give it a try! Next in this post, I have included a video of how I made this card.  It was one of my Facebook Live posts from my Facebook page.

Lasting Lily – Step It Up

Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop Badge

Hi Stampers. I’m back!  I’m sorry it’s been a while. I was surprised with an emergency appendectomy for Valentine’s Day.  It’s been a bit of a rough recovery, but I’m glad to be blogging again.  Today I’m coming to you with a blog hop for the Global Stamping Friends.  Today we are all sharing items that have been “stepped up”.

Beginner Stamper:

Stampin' Up! Lasting Lily Sympathy Card step it up blog hop Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

My first card is a simple version.  It starts out with a Highland Heather card base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″.  I stamped the Lilies from the Lasting Lily stamp set (a level 2 Sale-A-Bration product) in Highland Heather ink and the stems in Old Olive ink, onto a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White CS. The sentiment was then stamped in Highland Heather ink. I then tied a knot in the center of a 6″ piece of Highland Heather organdy ribbon (a level 1 Sale-A-Bration product) and wrapped it around the top of the whisper White layer. I attached it to the back of the layer using glue dots. The Whisper White layer was then attached to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Easy peasy!

Here are some tips for using the distINKtive stamps from Stampin’ Up!:

Casual Stamper:

Stampin' Up! Lasting Lily Sympathy Card step it up blog hop Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For my second card I stepped it up a little.  This starts out with a Gorgeous Grape card base, 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″.  This time I stamped the one lily in Highland Heather ink and stem in Old Olive ink onto the Whisper White layer. The second lily and stem were stamped onto scraps of Whisper White CS and cut out using the Lily Framelits Dies (a limited release Stampin’ Up! Coordination product). The second lily and stem are adhered to the Whisper White layer using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment was stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White CS in Highland Heather ink and cut out with one of the smaller ovals from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies. This was backed with a layer of Gorgeous Grape CS cut out with a slightly larger scallop oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies. The ovals were adhered together with snail adhesive and then adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I then wrapped the 6″ piece of Highland Heather organdy ribbon (a level 1 Sale-A-Bration product) around the top of the Whisper White layer and adhered it to the back with glue dots.  Next, I tied a bow in a piece of the Highland Heather organdy ribbon and adhered it to the card front (over the other ribbon) using glue dots. The Whisper White layer was then adhered to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Avid Stamper:

Stampin' Up! Lasting Lily Sympathy Card step it up blog hop Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For this third card, it’s stepped up yet again.  This time I started with the Gorgeous Grape card base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. Next up is a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Highland Heather CS that has been dry embossed using the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. This time I stamped the first lily and stem onto a 2-7/8″ x 2-7/8″ piece of Whisper White CS.  This layer was cut using the Layering Squares Framelits Dies, but could easily be cut with the trimmer if you choose.

The second lily and stem were again stamped onto scraps of Whisper White and die cut using the Lily Framelits Dies. These were then adhered to the card front using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. The Whisper White Square was then adhered to the Highland Heather layer using mini glue dots.  I chose to use mini glue dots instead of snail because of the texture on the Highland Heather layer – the glue dots are “thicker” and stick better. You could also use tear and tape.

I wrapped a 6″ piece of HIghland Heather organdy ribbon around the bottom part of the Highland Heather layer and adhered it to the back with glue dots. The sentiment was stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White CS in Highland Heather ink and cut out with one of the smaller ovals from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies. This was backed with a layer of Gorgeous Grape CS cut out with a slightly larger scallop oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies. The ovals were adhered together with snail adhesive and then adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The Highland Heather layer was then adhered to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. This third card was a few more steps and a few more tools, but I’m thrilled with the way it came out!

So, as you can see here – this card can be done at varying levels of skill and using just a few tools or a bunch of tools.  You can follow along on the hop and see more examples of how to “step it up”!
