Wonderful Moments Baby Shower Card

Hi Stampers. I hope you enjoyed a long holiday weekend full of “Wonderful Moments”.  I had a wonderful weekend of time with my husband.  He works some long hours and we had three full days together.  He got off work early on Friday and we went to the local fair.  We did some errands, played Pokemon Go and hung around the house Saturday and Sunday. I made a beautiful banner, using a new stamp set from the 2018 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog, that I will be sharing with you later. Monday he did sort of have to work, we went up to Ketchum, Idaho to measure a kitchen and bath for a side job.  He makes beautiful cabinets! I had never been up to Ketchem, Sun Valley, etc.  It was BEAUTIFUL!!  The weather was perfect and his client was super nice.  She took us to lunch at a wonderful restaurant and gave us the royal tour of the area.  It was a wonderful day!

Stampin' Up! Wonderful Moments fancy fold card for an expecting mother. Great baby shower card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card looks complicated but it’s really super simple!  It starts out with a card base 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″. I scored down 1″ from the top at bottom of the front of the card at 2 1/8″ and ran it through the big shot using the Layering Ovals Framelit Dies with the top plate covering 1/2 of the oval. (See the video below, it will make much more sense after you watch that.)

On the front of the card I used a 2″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Twinkle Twinkle DSP adhered to the left side of the card.  I then cut a scalloped circle on the big shot with the Layering Oval Framelit dies out of Balmy Blue CS and then a slightly smaller one from Petal Pink CS. I cut a slightly smaller straight oval out of Whisper White CS and stamped the pregnant lady from the Wonderful Moments stamp set onto that oval in Balmy Blue ink. It’s so beautiful it doesn’t even need to be colored.

The interior of the card is a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Whisper White CS, with a 1/2″ x 4″ strip of Twinkle Twinkle DSP adhered to the right side of that layer – to make it coordinate with the front of the card.  Its a great finishing touch.  There are many great sentiments in the Wonderful Moments stamp set.  I have left this card blank for now and will add a sentiment later when I go to use it.

This card really is easy to make.  I hope you give it a try. Recently I showed how to create these fancy fold cards with just basic framelits on Facebook Live on my Business Facebook Page and uploaded that to my YouTube Channel, take a look:

Hi Stampers. I’ve been looking for ways to expand my Stampin’ Up! business, find new items for my Etsy store AND have fun new ideas for my classes and blog.  The Pop on By bundle fit that bill amazingly! I designed this card with a Realtor in mind. Wouldn’t this be awesome for Realtors to give to new home owners when they close on a house?

This card starts with a Balmy Blue card base, 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″. I cut a 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ strip of Smokey Slate CS and glued it along the bottom of the card front to resemble sidewalk. Using the house from the Pop on By stamp set, I stamped the house in Memento Black ink onto a 4″ x 3 1/4″ layer of Whisper White CS. The house is colored with the Stampin’ Blends Markers. The roof and door are Soft Suede, the house is Pool Party, the curtains are Soft Sea Foam and the inside window lighting is the light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers. I then used the paper snips to fussy cut out the house.

The inside of the card starts with a 5 1/4″ x 8 1/4″ layer of whisper White CS.  I scored in from each side about 1/4″ (note – do not go all the way across the card – it will put a score line across the front of your house).  I then placed the pop up house die onto that score line and run it through the Big Shot.  I used the same die to cut a 5″ x 5″ layer of Early Espresso CS and a 5″ x 5″ layer of Balmy Blue CS.  Then I fussy cut the Early Espresso to extract the roof and front door and glued them onto the white house layer.  I then fussy cut the Balmy Blue layer to extract the front of the house and glued it over the white house layer.

Using scraps of Whisper White CS I stamped the curtains three times in Memento Black ink, colored the with the Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends.  Then using the Pop Up House Thinlit dies again I used the coordinating framelit to cut them out.  The curtains were then glued to the Whisper White layer of the house on the back side of the house.  This layer is then carefully folded so it goes flat when the card closes.  I adhered the Whisper White layer to the card base with tear and tape adhesive. This will all make a lot more sense when you watch my video below:

Wonderful Moments Blackboard Heat Embossing Technique

Hi Stampers. I hope you are enjoying your weekend and experiencing some “Wonderful Moments”.  I’m happily stamping in my studio preparing for my heat embossing class this week.  We will be using three different heat embossing techniques in this class.  The card on today’s blog is the blackboard technique.  You heat emboss in white embossing powder on black card stock and it looks like a blackboard – hence the name. 🙂

Stampin' Up! Heat Emboxxing Card Class by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The three techniques we will do are the tarnished foil technique, the blackboard technique and the Josephs coat technique.  I will share the other two cards in upcoming posts.  Be sure to come back to see how those are done.

Stampin' Up! heat embossing blackboard technique handmade wedding card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts out with a Blushing Bride card base, 11″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″. Next up was a 4″ x 5 1/4″ layer of Basic Black CS. Before adhering this layer to the card, I rubbed it with the embossing buddy. I used Versamark ink to stamp the bride from the Wonderful Moments stamp set in the lower right corner. The flower from the Better Together stamp set was stamped in the upper left corner in Versamark ink. I then poured white stampin’ emboss powder over both, shook off excess and melting it with my heat tool. After that cooled a little, I used a ruler and a white marker to draw lines around the outer edge of the black layer (as seen in photo).

I adhered the Basic Black layer to my card base with snail adhesive and headed over to my Big Shot.  I die cut the wavy banner from the Bunch of Banners Framelit Dies out of Blushing Bride CS. The circles were cut using the Layering Circles Framelit Dies out of Whisper White and Blushing Bride CS.  The Layering Circle Framelit set is a great combination of circles and scalloped circles in a bunch of sizes that layer over one another beautifully. I stamped the “for the bride” sentiment from the Wonderful Moments stamp set in Blushing Bride ink onto the top Whisper White circle.  These pieces were layered onto the card front using snail adhesive and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the interior of the card, I used a 4″ x 5 1/4″ layer of Whisper White CS and stamped the sentiment and swirls from the Wonderful Moments stamp set in Blushing Bride ink.  This was adhered to the inside with snail adhesive.

I’m thrilled with how it came out and I hope you are too!  If you want to make one of these cards for yourself, I invite you to come to a local class or order my “class to go” option or order the supplies from my store to make your own.  What ever you decide to do, I hope it’s stress free!  Remember – “There’s NO STRESS in stamping”.

Wonderful Moments Pick a “B” Bog Hop

Pals blog hop - June 2018 - Babies, Birthdays and Brides

Hi Stampers.

Welcome to the Pals June, 2018 Blog Hop. This month we’re going to Pick a “B”. Projects for Babies, Birthdays or Brides, that is. Be on the look out for creations using new products from Stampin’ Up!

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.

I decided to play around with the Stampin’ Up! Wonderful Moments stamp set for the first time.  The images are just beautiful and celebrate women in a special way.  I love the soft look of this pregnant woman lost in thought.

Stampin Up Wonderful Moments stamp set Tropical Chic DSP New Baby card upright by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

In searching for a pink, I decided to go with  the 2017-2019 in-color – Powder Pink for my card base. That was cut to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″. I was searching around my studio looking for some of the newer DSP papers and this pretty pink from the Tropical Escape DSP caught my eye.  The DSP is cut to 5 1/4″ x 4″ and adhered with snail adhesive.

I stamped the woman in Blushing Bride ink onto Whisper White CS and cut that out with the Layering Ovals framelit dies.  I used the layering framelit dies again to make mattes for under that with Basic Gray and Melon Mambo CS.  The Melon Mambo scalloped circle was adhered to the card base with snail, as was the Whisper White onto the Basic Gray oval. The Basic Gray was attached to the Melon Mambo oval with Stampin’ Dimensionals to give it a little pop.

I felt the front of the card needed a little something in addition to the oval focal point, so I used some scraps of Melon Mambo CS (approx. 4″ x 1/2″) and a thin strip of Basic Gray CS down the center of that.  I still wasn’t happy, so I dug through my framelits and found this flower in the Springtime Impression thinlit dies.  Those were cut out of Powder Pink CS and a Clear Faceted Gem was placed in the center of each one.

Stampin’ Tip: The flowers were pretty small and thin, so I used the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to make them stickers.  If you haven’t tried that stuff yet, you don’t know what you are missing!  You peel off one side of the adhesive sheet to reveal the adhesive and place it on the back of your CS and then you run it though the Big Shot as usual.  When you are ready to adhere it to your project, you just peel off the back layer and reveal the adhesive.  Poof!  Instant sticker with NO MESS!!  How cool is that?!?!

Stampin Up Wonderful Moments stamp set Tropical Chic DSP New Baby card upright by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The interior of the card was lined with a 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of Whisper White CS.  I used a 1/2″ strip of the same DSP from the front of the card on the top and bottom of this layer to make the inside coordinate with the outside.  The sentiment (also from the Wonderful Moments stamp set) was stamped in Blushing Bride ink. The interior was finished off with a single Melon Mambo flower in the lower left corner.

This card didn’t come out quite as I hoped, but I know this is going to be a very fun set to play around with and I will have many more samples using this set in the future.  Be sure to sign up for the blog post notifications (on the sidebar to the right) to keep up to date on the blog and sign up for my newsletter to get special deals and tutorials just for my subscribers.

Last Weeks of Sale-A-Bration

The-Remarkable-Inkbig-Blog-Hop

Hi Stampers.  I hope you have enjoyed this years Sale-A-Bration as much as I have.  Stampin’ Up! has had some amazing FREE products – they have had not one, not two, but THREE releases! This has kept things exciting by continuing to add choices for you to choose from.  My card features 3 of the choices offered to you as a FREE Sale-A-Bration item: The Celebrate You thinlit dies, the Amazing You stamp set and the Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper.

Stampin' Up! Celebrate You Amazing You Springtime Foil by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card started with a Basic Black card base: 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″.  Next I used a piece of our Springtime Foils DSP (free item for SAB) and cut it to 5 1/4″ x 4″.  This paper is BEAUTIFUL!  Next I cut a scalloped circle of Silver Foil and a slightly smaller circle of Whisper White CS using the Layering Circles Framelit Dies.

Stampin' Up! Celebrate You Amazing You Springtime Foil by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

One the Whisper White circle, I stamped “You are simply” from the Amazing You stamp set (free item for SAB) in memento black ink.  The circles were then adhered to the card front.

Stampin’ Tip: For the next step, I cut a piece of Basic Black CS 2 1/4″ x 3 3/4″ and then cut a piece of the Sizzix Adhesive Sheet the same size.  I adhered on e side of the adhesive sheet to the CS and then used the “amazing” die from the Celebrate You thinlit dies (free item for SAB).  Then, when I ran this through the big shot with the die, the word already had adhesive backing on it, the perfect size.  All I had to do was peel off the backing and stick it to my card.  Amzaing stuff!  It can easily be missed in the catalog.  It’s on page 203  of the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.

Stampin' Up! Celebrate You Amazing You Springtime Foil by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations For the interior of the card I used more stamps from the Amazing You stamp set and stamped in Memento Black ink onto a 5″ x 3 3/4″ pieces of Whisper White CS.

National Craft Month Blog Hop

National Craft Month Blog Hop Badge

Hi Stampers. Did you know that March is “National Craft Month”? What a great excuse to get crafty! This blog hop is full of great ideas using Stampin’ Up! Products. My card is made using Stampin’ Up! Petal Palette and the Falling Leaves Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

The card started with a Thick Whisper White card stock – 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″. I used the Big Shot and the Falling Leaves Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on a 5 1/4″ x 4″ layer of Daffodil Delight card stock. The Daffodil Delight layer was attached with snail adhesive.  Petal Palette stamp set has a coordinating framelits set – Birds & Blooms Thinlit Dies. Whisper White card stock was used to cut out the branch of leaves and placed that on the card front towards the top. On the lower part of the card I placed 1/2 of a doily and I used the fancy die to cut out Calypso Coral card stock to place on top of the doily.

Congratulations was stamped in Daffodil Delight ink onto a scrap of Whisper White card stock and cut out with the frame die.  The bird was stamped in Memento Black ink and colored with the Daffodil Delight stampin’ blends.

I wanted a little something on the inside, so I used the leaves stamp and Garden Green ink in the upper left and lower right corner.  I stamped the dots in Daffodil Delight ink.
