Sparkle Unicorn Side Easel Card

Hi Stampers. I’m getting there… I’m catching up on my video editing. Every Monday at 2:30MT, I do a Facebook Live on my Business Facebook page. I then download the video, edit it and put it on YouTube.  Last summer my video editing software stopped working and I had to find a new one. Well, I finally did and it’s better than the old one!

Stampin' Up! Leave A Little Sparkle Unicorn Easel Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I made this side easel card last summer using the Leave A Little Sparkle stamp set.  I just love that unicorn and the rainbow mane that I colored with the Stampin’ Blends.

This card is made using Balmy Blue, Highland Heather and Whisper White CS.  It will fold flat for mailing and fit in a standard A2 envelope and then it will prop open for display.

I outlined the body of the unicorn using the light Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blend and then went over it again withe the Color Lifter.

For the sentiment on the inside of the card, I used my Stampin’ Write Markers to ink up the stamp.  Using the markers allowed me to make the sentiment a rainbow of colors.

On the inside of the card, I placed a small star adhered with a mini Stampin’ Dimensional.  This will act as a “stop” to keep the card propped open.  Anyone who loves unicorns would love this stamp set!  You can purchase this set or any of the other supplies in my online store – see links below.  If you would like more directions and the measurements used in the making of this card – watch my video below.

Wildly Happy Sweetest Baby

Hi Stampers. A while back someone asked me about the subtle 3D embossing folder and how to use it. Today I’m showing you one idea for this embossing folder.

stampin up stamping your way to the top new team member card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card is made using the Wildy Happy stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  It is a set of 9 cling mount stamps.  (Cling mount stamps are red rubber stamps with a sticky back that mount on clear blocks.)

stampin up wildly happy sweetest baby card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card is monochromatic – meaning various shades of the same color – in this case gray.  This card uses Basic Gray, Smokey Slate and Whisper White CS and Basic Gray ink.

stampin up wildly happy sweetest baby card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I used two sets of layering dies – the ovals and the squares.  I love how the square frames the Mommy elephant and her baby.

stampin up wildly happy sweetest baby card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Before I dry embossed the Smoky Slate CS – I used my Basic Gray ink to apply ink all over one side the Subtle Embossing Folder.  As it went through the embossing machine it not only embossed, but it transfered the ink into the CS making the embossing more defined. Such a cool effect!

Magical Mermaid Shaker Card

Hi Stampers. As summer nears an end, I’m playing with the Magical Mermaid stamp set and the recently retired Seaside textured impressions embossing folder (although the new High Seas embossing folder would look even better!).  I used the layering circles dies and some foam strips to make this a shaker card.

Stampin' Up! Magical Mermaid shaker card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Today’s card starts with a Bermuda Bay card base, 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″.  Using the Magical Mermaid stamp set, I stamped the mermaid onto a scrap of Whisper White CS and colored with the Stampin’ Blends. This piece is fairly easy to fussy cut with paper snips, but I chose to use my Brother Scan N Cut machine.

Stampin' Up! Magical Mermaid shaker card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Using the Layering Circles Dies, I die cut a circle in the right center of a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Pool Party CS and the dry embossed it using the Seaside embossing folder. (The folder is retired, but I think this card could look even better using the new High Seas embossing folder.)

Stampin' Up! Magical Mermaid shaker card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For the sentiment, I stamped onto a 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ piece of Coastal Cabana CS using Versamark ink.  I used the new shimmer white stampin’ emboss powder and heat tool to heat emboss it.  On the sides and bottom of this layer I stamped the seaweed in Bermuda Bay ink. To cover the hole in the center of the top layer (from the backside) I used the clear acetate that comes on the photopolymer stamps. Next, I surrounded the circle (from the backside) with foam strips, added the buttons and placed the Coastal Cabana layer over that.  (The buttons have retired, but this would look great with the iridescent sequins, too. I was just trying to use up some retired product – which I also recommend.)

Stampin' Up! Magical Mermaid shaker card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

To the backside of the top layer, I added more foam strips around the edges and then applied it to the card base. Note: be sure to use the foam strips and not dimensionals because they are not the same height. The mermaid was then attached to the front of the card using multipurpose liquid glue.

Stampin' Up! Magical Mermaid shaker card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The interior of the card is lined with a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Whisper White CS.  I stamped the sentiment and the seaweed onto this layer using Bermuda Bay ink. This layer was stamped before adhering to the interior of the card in case there was a mis- stamp, then I could use the other side. 😉

Bokeh Magical Mermaid

Hi Stampers. Today I’m dreaming about the next cruise to the Caribbean my husband and I will go on.  I am not sure when it’s going to be, but I’m feeling the pull.  I want to go to the land of clear waters and make like a magical mermaid!

Stampin' Up! Magical Mermaid Bokeh Dots Stampin' Blends handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card stars with a basic card base, 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″, in Bermuda Bay CS.  The next layer is a 5-1/4″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White CS.  Onto that layer, I stamped the center square using the Bokeh Dots stamp set. Over that I stamped the mermaid from the Magical Mermaid stamp set in Memento Black ink. I then colored the mermaid by using my (FABULOUS) Stampin’ Blends.  (If you have not purchased some of these yet, you are truly missing out!! They have become my favorite form of coloring!).

Stampin' Up! Magical Mermaid Bokeh Dots Stampin' Blends handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I colored the mermaids skin with the Ivory Stampin’ Blend, her hair with the Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends duo and the hair ribbon with the light Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blend. For the tail, I colored it using the Bermuda Bay and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends duos. For the exterior sentiment, I stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White CS in Bermuda Bay ink and cut it out using the Layering Circles Dies. Using the snail adhesive I adhered the Whisper White circle to a scalloped circle of Bermuda Bay CS cut using the same dies. The two circles were then adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Magical Mermaid Bokeh Dots Stampin' Blends handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The inside of this Magical Mermaid card is lined with another 5-1/4″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White CS.  Before adhering it, I stamped the sentiment in Bermuda Bay ink and the seaweed (hanging off the edges) in Old Olive ink. It’s then adhered to the inside of the card using Snail Adhesive. While this card came as a result of my wishing for vacation, it would make a great card to send to anyone who loves magical mermaids. You can create your own using the supplies listed below (with links to my online store).

Round one of my paper share was a success.  I’ve had a few more requests to do another one.  If you would like a 6″ x 6″ pieces of every DSP listed in the new 2019-2020 Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalog, check out the information on my paper share HERE.

Wicked Folds Blog Hop

Hi Stampers.

Welcome to the Pals October, 2018 Blog Hop. It’s a spooky time of year so watch out for “Wicked Folds” while you hop from blog to blog. We promise not to be too scary.

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! Toil & Trouble Halloween BOO box candy holder by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I just love that we are featuring “wicked folds”.  If you follow me at all, you know that I love fancy fold cards!  I make them a lot! But, I had recently made these adorable “Boo Boxes” for a recent craft fair and decided to use this project for the hop.  This “Boo Box” involves lots of folds. 🙂

Stampin' Up! Toil & Trouble Halloween BOO box candy holder by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This box started with a 5″ x 7 3/4″ piece of Basic Black CS – it was scored at 1 1/4″ from each side (this is the bottom of the finished box).  The top of the box is a 4 1/8″ x 6 7/8″  piece of Basic Black CS, scored at 3/4″ from each side. The insert is a 3 3/8″ x 6 1/8″ piece of Basic Black CS, scored at 1/2″ from each side.  I then used the Stampin’ Up! Layering Alphabet Dies to die cut the “B” out of Pumpkin Pie CS. The “Os” were made using two circles from the Layering Circles Framelit Dies and Pumpkin Pie CS.

Stampin' Up! Toil & Trouble Halloween BOO box candy holder by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The box is decorated with Toil & Trouble DSP – 2 3/8″ x 5 1/8″, adhered to the top of the box. To go over that, I die cut the Cauldron and the Cat from the Toil & Trouble DSP and adhered them to a 2″ x 4 3/4″ piece of Very Vanilla CS.  I then stamped “Happy Halloween” from the Cauldron Bubble Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape between these two. This layer was then adhered over the Toil & Trouble DSP layer on the top of the box.

Stampin' Up! Toil & Trouble Halloween BOO box candy holder by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Before folding up the sides of the insert of the box, I die cut the two “Os” using the smaller of the two circles I made the “Os” out of. I then adhered the letters onto the insert using liquid glue.  The corners were cut according to the video below and then the box was put together with tear and tape adhesive.

When the box it finished you can insert round candies (such as Ferrero Rocher or Lindor Chocolates) in to the holes for the “O’s”.

I also made some “Ho Ho Ho Boxes” that is very similar (just a little bit longer) and recently made that box on a Facebook Live. (I do Facebook Live on my Facebook Page at 2:30pm (MT) each Monday). Watching this video will explain how this box is assembled. You can see that HERE:

Now it’s time to use the Blog Hop Line-up below to see what the rest of my Pals have created to inspire you.. Don’t forget to show us some love by commenting on our creations.

Mark your calendars for Wednesday, November 14, 2018 for the next Pals Blog Hop. November is time for “Anything But a Card” where the Pals will feature creations suitable for holiday gifting. Don’t miss the fun.

Animal Outing Gift Card Holder

Hi Stampers. The say June is all about brides and babies. So, today I’m playing with the new Animal Outing stamp set bundle to make this adorable gift card holder for a baby. Those of us demonstrators who attended the Stampin’ Up! OnStage event in April, when the new catalog was released, were given this set for free. (I love my job! A fun trip to Vegas with friends and FREE stamps!) This baby shower card is one of the three cards I did for this months fancy fold card class.

Stampin' Up! Fancy Fold Class by Queen B Creations offered locally in Twin Falls Idao and as a "class to go" for those out of town.I offer classes locally in my studio in Twin Falls, Idaho – but also offer my classes as a “class to go” option.  You can purchase just the pre-cut kit of cardstock / supplies to make these cards (for just $15 – you get three of each card, for a total of nine cards) and use your own stamps and ink or you can purchase the stamps and ink from my online store.

Stampin' Up! Animal Outing gift card holder fancy fold handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts with a Shaded Spruce card base that is 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 2 1/2″ and 5 1/2″. I then used the Animal Expedition DSP- cut to 4″ x 2 1/4″, 4″ x 2 3/4″ and  4″ x 1″.  I adhered the 4″ x 3 3/4″ piece of DSP to the card front near the 5 1/2″ fold and then the 4″ x 2 1/4″ piece of DSP next to that. I then notched half of a circle with my one inch circle punch to the right side before folding it over. I attached the folded over part to the inside of the card with tear and tape at the top and bottom. The side with the notched out circle was left open to insert the gift card.

For the focal point on the front of the card I started with a piece of Whisper White CS cut with the second largest square framelit from the stitched framelit dies. Next I used the layering squares framelit dies to cut the a straight square in Granny Apple Green CS just a little bigger than the white and a scalloped square in Shaded Spruce CS a little larger than that. I stamped the Kangaroo and the Giraffe from the Animal Outing stamp set in Memento Black ink onto scraps of Whisper White CS and colored with the Stampin’ Blends.  They were then cut out with the coordinating Animal Friends Framelit Dies. The sentiment was stamped in Granite Gray ink onto the Whisper White square.  The animals were attached to the Whisper White CS with glue dots and the Whisper White square was attached to the Granny Apple Green square with snail adhesive.  The Granny Apple Green square was attached to the Shaded Spruce square with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I then added snail adhesive to the one side of the Shaded Spruce square that attached to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Animal Outing gift card holder fancy fold handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock (CS) to 5 1/4″ x 4″ and attached the 4″ x 1″ DSP to the right side for the interior of the card. This is a great fold that can be done for many occasions – wedding, birthday, Christmas, graduation… anytime you want to give a gift card. :-)
