Retirement Party Pals Blog Hop – Frosted Foliage

Pals Blog Hop December Blog Hop BadgeHi Stampers.  Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects for our Retirement Fun Fold Party  – showcasing our favorite products from the Holiday Catalog that will be leaving us forever. 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.

As we get closer to Christmas and I fall further behind, I’m constantly looking for quick and easy cards that pack a WOW.  That’s why I LOVE the Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper – it is so beautiful, it does most of the work for you!

Stampin' Up! Frosted Foliage stamp set with Feels Like Frost DSP fancy fold handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I cut a standard card base in Seaside Spray and added a layer of the Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper.  Next, I cut a circle in the upper center of the card front.  I then cut a slightly larger scalloped circle from Silver Glimmer Paper and then used the same circle I used on the card front to remove the center of the scallop circle.  This left me with a frame of sorts that I then glued to the card front.

Some of you may be wondering – “why is she featuring this gorgeous paper that we can no longer get”.  Well, the good news is that it is one of the items that will be in the 2020 Holiday Catalog!  For the first time ever, Stampin’ Up! will be carrying a few items from this holiday catalog to next years holiday catalog.  So, while it may not be order able until next fall – It will be back!  Check out the the closeout and carry over lists below to see which items will be discontinued and which ones are coming back. Some of those that are being discontinued have been discounted!

Stampin' Up! Frosted Foliage stamp set with Feels Like Frost DSP fancy fold handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The inside of the card is where the “fancy fold” part comes in.  For the inside layer I cut a piece of Whisper White CS 8″ x 5-1/4″ and scored at 4″.  After folding at the score line, (with the fold on the right side) I stamped the interior sentiment on the inside using Night of Navy ink.  I stamped the snowflakes from the Frosted Foliage stamp set on the corners of the top of this Whisper White layer – as shown in photo. It was then glued to the interior of my card with the fold on the opposite side.  After the Whisper White layer was attached I stamped the sentiment – also from the Frosted Foliage stamp set in Night of Navy ink – through the front circle with the card closed.  That made sure that the sentiment was fully disable with the card closed. It’s done.  How quick and easy was that?!?!?

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. 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. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, January 8th, for our Time to Sale-A-Brate blog hop when our Design Team showcase projects using brand new products from the new mini catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure.

Plaid Christmas Joy

Hi Stampers. Happy December! Christmas is now official in season!  Today I have a quick and easy Christmas card made using the So Many Stars stamp set and the Wrapped in Plaid DSP.  This DSP is so pretty in person!  Each peach has gold foil stripes on one side that give it a very rich feel.

Stampin' Up! So Many Stars Plaid Joy Christmas card by Lisa Ann Bernard

I’ve been using this paper alot lately. It is a 6″ x 6″ paper stack, so when I cut a 4″ card front, I have a 2″ strip left over.  This layout worked perfectly to use that leftover piece.

Stampin' Up! So Many Stars Plaid Joy Christmas card by Lisa Ann Bernard

The focal point sentiment “Joy” is from the So Many Stars bundle and die cut using the layering circles dies.

Stampin' Up! So Many Stars Plaid Joy Christmas card by Lisa Ann Bernard

More stamps from the So Many Star stamp set had a variety of sentiments to choose from as well as “so many stars” to decorate with.  The stars were so pretty in the corner of the inside that I also stamped them on the envelope flap.  This was one of the cards made in one of my Christmas Card classes held here in my studio.

Back On Your Feet

Hi Stampers. Happy Black Friday! I hope you had a blessed Thanksgiving.  I’ve had a few friends lately have some challenges.  I was having trouble coming up with a card but the Stampin’ Up! Back On Your Feet stamp set came to my rescue.

Stampin' Up! Back on Your Feet You Got This support card made by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The animals in the Back On Your Feet Stamp set are just too cute and the sentiments were perfect. Before adhering the top layers, I stamped a few leaves (from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set – although any leaves would work) in Old Olive ink.

Stampin' Up! Back on Your Feet You Got This support card made by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The base of my card is in Old Olive and the animals were stamped in Memento Black ink and colored with the (fantastic) Stampin’ Blends!  I used a scrap of Perennial Essence DSP to add a little green to the right side of the inside layer.

Perfectly Plaid Christmas Card

Hi Stampers. Happy Monday.  Can you believe Thanksgiving is this week?!?  Time is flying by so fast!  Last week, I held a Christmas card class and we made some quick and easy Christmas cards.  I will need to be creating some in bulk.in order to have mine all done in time!

Stampin' Up! Perfectly Plaid bundle Wrapped in Plaid DSP handmade Christmas Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts with a thick Whisper White card base followed by a layer of Cherry Cobbler CS and a layer of Perfectly Plaid DSP,  Isn’t that envelope flap cute?  That was created using Shaded Spruce ink and stamps from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set.

Stampin' Up! Perfectly Plaid bundle Wrapped in Plaid DSP handmade Christmas Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

On that main Whisper White top layer, I stamped Merry Christmas in Cherry Cobbler ink and punched out the tree. I then attatched it to a Shaded Spruce layer, stamped the tree and then added them to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

In order to stamp the tree perfectly in the center of the punch, we used the Stamparatus.

  1. Place the Shaded Spruce and Whisper White layers in the stamparatus
  2. Hold these in place using the Stamparatus magnets
  3. Place the stamp in the punched out tree
  4. Pick up the stamp using the Stamparatus plate
  5. In the tree stamp with Shaded Spruce ink
  6. Stamp the tree into the cutout.

The inside sentiment and trees (from the same Perfectly Plaid stamp set) were stamped using Shaded Spruce ink.  There you have it – quick and easy! You still have time to order the supplies and have them in time to create some super cute Christmas cards!  (links provided below).

Beautiful You Christmas Tree

Hi Stampers.  While I am thrilled about having my hands on the new catalog and new products – they are not available for customers to purchase until January and we still have Christmas cards to make and send out.  How are yours coming along?  Are you a little behind and looking for something cute to send out?  In this card I have used a non-Christmas stamp set and a non-Christmas set of dies to create a very Christmas-like card!

Stampin' Up! Beautiful You Santa girl in the woods dies handmade Christmas card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

A thick Whisper White card base followed by a Cherry Cobbler layer and then another Whisper White layer makes this card start out looking like a Santa suit.

Stampin' Up! Beautiful You Santa girl in the woods dies handmade Christmas card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The large tree from the In The Woods dies, die cut from Shaded Spruce CS (and a few Holiday Rhinestones Basic Jewels), make the perfect outdoor Christmas tree.  A little White Craft ink sponged onto the edges gives the look of snow.

Stampin' Up! Beautiful You Santa girl in the woods dies handmade Christmas card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

While the girl from the Beautiful You stamp set was not originally intended to be in a Santa dress, Real Red Stampin’ Blends and some Snowfall Accents puff paint complete the transformation.  Add to that a few snowflakes stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed using the Shimmer White embossing powder and some Snowfall Accents puff paint with Dazzling Diamonds glitter added completes the winter outdoor look.

How are your Christmas cards coming along?  Can I help in any way?  Let me know – I’m here for you!

PPP Blog Hop – Winter Woods Alternatives

Hi Stampers. Today we are sharing with you, alternative ideas for the October 2019 Paper Pumpkin kit – Winter Woods.  It’s a beautiful kit and next month coordinates with it!

Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin Winter Woods October 2019 alternative by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The original design was almost too pretty to make alternatives, so I made it very similar, but a fancy fold easel card.

Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin Winter Woods October 2019 alternative by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

My card props up for display – since it is so pretty, it can be a Christmas decoration as well as a card!

Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin Winter Woods October 2019 alternative by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The label with the sentiment on it, is popped up on dimensionals to hold the card open.

Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin Winter Woods October 2019 alternative by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I love how the front has the 3D effect with those trees.  I saved the negative of the trees, there is plenty of room in the middle to die cut more things out of that gorgeous shimmer white!
