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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Teacher Gifts Picked For You

Hi Stampers.

Thanks for coming to my blog today! We are being highlighted internationally by Kylie Bertucci and you are able to VOTE for my project. The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop so please vote for my project. You can do that here – http://bit.ly/VoteForMeKyliesHighlightsAugust2018

This is my first time playing along with Kylie Bertucci’s International Highlights. Our theme for this highlight is Teacher Gifts!

Stampin' Up! Large Letters framelits and Picked For You stamp set handmade card for teacher by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

It’s been more than a few years since I needed a teacher gift, LOL  But, I do have several friends who are teachers that I could mail a card to.  I chose to use the Stampin’ Up! Picked for You stamp set and combined it with the Large Letters Framelit dies.

Stampin' Up! Large Letters framelits and Picked For You stamp set handmade card for teacher by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts out with a Garden Green card base – 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″.  I covered that with a 4″ x 5 1/4″  layer of Cherry Cobbler CS.  A 4″ x 3/4″ strip of Wood Textures DSP was glued across the bottom of the Cherry Cobbler Layer. The sentiment was stamped, in Memento Black ink, onto that strip. For the chalkboard, I used a 3 3/4″ x 2 1/2″ layer of Basic Black CS with a 1/2″ x 3 5/8″ strip of Wood Textures DSP.  To simulate chalk, I sponged just a little bit of White craft ink.

Stampin' Up! Large Letters framelits and Picked For You stamp set handmade card for teacher by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The letters were cut from Garden Green, Daffodil Delight and Pacific Point CS, using the Large Letters Framelit dies.  I attached the letter to the “chalboard” using mini glue dots.

Stampin' Up! Large Letters framelits and Picked For You stamp set handmade card for teacher by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The apples were stamped onto Watercolor Paper using the Stamparatus and the Stampin’ Up! Picked For You stamp set. The red apple was stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink.  Layer one was stamped off once before stamping onto my Watercolor Paper, the next two apple layers were stamped full strength. For the stem I used Early Espresso ink. This process was repeated using Granny Apple Green ink for the green apples.  I then cut out the apples out using my paper snips and adhered them to the card front with liquid glue.

Stampin’ Tip: I used Watercolor paper so that I could go back after they were stamped and do a little blending with the Blender Pens in areas that didn’t get color.  Don’t get me wrong – the Stamparatus helps tremendously in lining up these stamps, but nobody is perfect.  At least I’m not….

This card is one of three that will be in my Tuesday August 14th class here in Twin Falls (Also available as a class to go for those who are out of town – I send you the paper materials all pre-cut ready to stamp along with PDF instructions. You use your own stamps and ink.  If you need stamps and ink, I have a list of supplies listed below with links to my online store for purchase.)

Thanks for visiting my blog today make sure you head over to Kylie’s blog – http://bit.ly/VoteForMeKyliesHighlightsAugust2018 to vote for my project. I would love to be chosen to do an international blog hop.

Half Full “Drinks Galore” Blog Hop

Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop Badge

Hi Stampers.  Today, we at Global Stamping Friends, are doing a “Drinks Galore” blog hop. We were challenged to do anything drinks related – this is a great chance to show off some of our amazing drink related sets!  Since I was born in raised in Northern California Wine Country, it was only natural that I use our Half Full stamp set from Stampin’ Up!

Stampin' Up! Half Full wine lovers handmade card for wine lovers made by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For this card, I started with a Fresh Fig card base – 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4″.  Next I used a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Wood Textures DSP and adhered it with snail adhesive.  I was going to use a 3 3/4″ x 5″ layer of Very Vanilla CS on top of that.  I stamped the wine bottle and wine glass in Tuxedo Black ink.  It was about then that I decided I didn’t want to cover up all of the pretty Wood Textures DSP, so I turned it into a corner accent.  I layed the Very Vanilla layer in my Stampin’ Trimmer and VERY CAREFULLY cut a diagonal line, making sure not to cut the wine bottle or wine glass. Using paper snips, I fussy cut the rest of the diagonal line and over the top of the wine glass and wine bottle.

Stampin' Up! Half Full wine lovers handmade card for wine lovers made by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I used some of the leftover Very Vanilla CS to stamp the grapes from the tag sentiment stamp from this set and fussy cut them out too, I colored the glass of the wine bottle and the grape leaves with the Old Olive Stampin’ Blends duo. The wine bottle foil, grapes and wine were colored with the Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends duo. To create a shadow under the wine bottle and glass and give the wine label a little color, I used the light Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blend. This corner piece was then adhered to the card front with snail adhesive and the grapes were adhered to that with liquid glue.

Stampin' Up! Half Full wine lovers handmade card for wine lovers made by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

It needed a sentiment, so I settled on stamping that in Fresh Fig ink onto an oval and then mounting that oval onto a scalloped oval of Fresh Fig CS with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then the ovals were attached to the card front with snail adhesive.  I thought it was just enough and left me plenty of the wood showing.  My big shot and the Layering Ovals Framelit Dies made this super easy!  This card front would be pretty on another card I’ve done with this stamp set that had pop out panels – see that card in this post here.

None of my cards are finished until I’ve stamped a little something on the inside. I stamped the inside sentiment in Fresh Fig ink onto a 4″ x 5 1/4″ layer of Very Vanilla CS. I stamped the wine glasses across the bottom in Tuxedo Black ink and colored with the Rich Razzleberry and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends duos. I’ve included a supply list below with links to my online store for purchase.
