Christmas Themed Framed Samplers

Hi Stampers. Two weeks ago I shared a FALL themed sampler that I made. (See that post HERE) While I was in the mood to do samplers, I did several.  Today I am showing you the two Chritmas themed ones I made.  All the measurements are the same, I just used different papers, ink colors and stamps.

These frames are 8″ x 8″ and can be purchased on Amazon with my affiliate link HERE. The background for both of these are glimmer paper. Most of my squares are 2″ x 2″ colored cardstock with 1-3/4″ x 1-3/4″ layer over those.  I used Whisper White CS to stamp onto.  There are 1/4″ border between squares. One of the blocks are rectangles – 2″ x 4-1/4″. The 4-1/4″ was made by adding the 2″ plus 2″ plus the 1/4″ gap.

This sampler is a little of everything Christmas – I’ve tried to list all the supplies below.  It has a Christmas feel to it complete with Santa And an Elf and a few  Christmas trees.

This sampler used mostly the Snowman Season Bundle and Let it Snow DSP, with a few extras thrown in.  I found that the Snow Globe Dies worked perfectly for my 2″ squares.

Figuring out the layout took a little bit of math.  I started with 2″ x 2″ blocks.  Since i wanted 1/4″ borders, I knew I could get three 2″ blocks each way.  The three 2″ blocks added to 6″.  The gap between blocks were two 1/4″ gaps. Which gave me 6-1/2″.  Eight inches minus 6-1/2″ left me with an extra 1-1/2″ – putting half on either side gave me 3/4″ each side.  The diagram may help explain what I am trying to say here.

I used the green squares as placeholders while I arranged the four corner squares. Then I centered the other squares between the corners.  After all my squares were attached I removed the green placeholder squares.

Fall Framed Sampler Home Decor

Hi Stampers. For my craft fairs this weekend, I made several framed samplers to sell.  Today I am sharing one of them with you.

Stampin' Up! 8" x 8" framed sampler home decor for Fall/Autumn by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This framed sampler is 8″ x 8″.  The base is Very Vanilla with Crushed Curry over that and then more Very Vanilla CS.  I used several stamp sets and dies to make this sampler.  Where I did not have coordinating dies – I used my Brother Scan and Cut machine. (I love that machine!) Most of my squares are 2″ x 2″ Crushed Curry with 1-3/4″ x 1-3/4″ Very Vanilla that I stamped onto with a 1/4″ border between squares.  Two of the Crushed Curry blocks are rectangles – 2″ x 4-1/4″. The 4-1/4″ was made by adding the 2″ plus 2″ plus the 1/4″ gap.  For the word “FALL”  I used my beloved (retired) Large Alphabet Dies and the Come to Gather DSP.

It Starts With Art Framed Sampler

Hi Stampers.  A few months ago I offered a class to make this adorable framed sampler.  I just love how it came out and hung it on the wall in my studio for all who enter to enjoy.  Today I’m sharing it with you, my blog followers!

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

This sampler fits in an 8″ x 8″ shadow box frame.  The background is a fairly simple piece of Designer Series Paper.  I used the Crafting Forever and It Starts With Art stamp sets.  I also had a retired single stamp of the Stampin’ Up! statement of the heart. Most of the stamping wasThis is  done using Momento Black ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends.

While some images are stamped directly onto the Whisper White squares, some were stamped onto scraps of Whisper White CS and cut out with the coordinating dies or fussy cut with paper snips (or the Brother Scan n Cut).

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

I used an assortment of pretty colored cardstocks – Melon Mambo, Coastal Cabana, Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather, Granny Apple Green, Purple Posey, Pineapple Punch and Balmy Blue.  The “crafting forever – housework whenever” sentiment is stamped in Melon Mambo ink and the “Do something creative everyday” is stamped in Gorgeous Grape ink.

This is a closeup of the Stampin’ Up! statement of the heart and those gorgeous Glitter Enamel Dots – they match my logo, don’t  you think?!?

It was a little complicated to try to get photos of this sampler actually IN the frame due to the reflection on the glass.  But, here it is…

Happy Tails & Nine Lives “Pet Vet” Framed Sampler

Hi Stampers. Do you have a pet?  Chances are if you have a pet – you have a vet.  How cute would this be in a veterinary office? This framed sampler is made using the Large Letter Dies, Happy Tails stamp set and Nine Lives stamp set. I saw this quite some time ago (somewhere online), I believe the idea came from fellow demonstrator Dori Schneider. I have changed it up some and made it my own.  I plan to gift it to my Vet next time I take Sophie (my doggie) in for her shots.

Sophie is my constant companion in my craft studio. When I have classes, she is SURE that everyone is there to see her!!  She’s a love bug and everyone loves her back.  She makes me happy!  How could you not love that face??

It started with an 8″ x 8″ frame and an 8″ x 8″ piece of basic black CS.  I divided the 8″ by 3 and made miniature squares in Basic Gray CS to place over the base making my grid. (I had to be sure to allow for the spaces between the squares).  I then made a slightly smaller square in Whisper Whit CS.

I cut the letters from Basic Black CS using the Large Letter Framelit Dies. I am so sad they are retiring.  If you don’t have them yet, you need to hurry over to my store and buy them.  They are awesome and I use them for LOTS of things! I decorated around the letters and in the remaining squares using the Happy Tails bundle and the Nine Lives bundles.  Both stamp sets are photopolymer stamps with layers (the cat and dog have various stamps for stripes and spots) and have a coordinating punch, making it super easy. These two stamps sets will be carrying over, as well as the punches.  You can save 10% by buying the Happy Tails bundle from my store now. In the new catalog they will only be sold separately.

Valentine’s Day Banner

Hi Stampers. Today I’d like to show you how to use your Stampin’ Up! Supplies to make holiday home decor.  I made this “Be Mine” Valentines Day banner.  This was super easy to make using the Be Mine Framelit Dies and the Large Letter Dies.Stampin' Up! Be Mine Stitched framelit dies and large letter framelit dies were used to make this Valentines Day home decor banner by Lisa An Bernard of Queen B Creations

Each panel of this banner is a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ piece of Smokey Slate CS. I marked the bottom center of one of the panels and went up a bit and made a dot with a pencil. Next, I used paper snips to cut from each bottom corner up to the dot.  Once I had the first one done, I just used it as a pattern to cut the rest of the panels.

I felt the Smoky Slate panels needed a little something, so I used the Sheet Music background stamp and Basic Gray ink to stamp each panel. A 3/4″ strip of Rose Glimmer paper across the top was added next.

I used the Be Mine Stitched Dies to die cut the hearts from Melon Mambo and Powder Pink CS.  For the letters I used the Large Letter Dies to cut them out of Melon Mambo CS. You can use either multipurpose liquid glue or the amazing multipurpose adhesive sheets on the CS before die cutting. (This basically makes them a sticker – no mess!).

I finished it off by punching a 1/4″ circle on either top corner and ran the 3/8″ Berry Burst Metallic Ribbon through the holes to string it up.  How cute is this?!?  I have made the following video tutorial to show you how easy it is!

Merry Christmas Banners

Hi Stampers. Did you see the lighted shadow box I shared with you on Friday? This set of Christmas banners would look great with that. A customer had see the bottom banner in the Stampin’ Up! 2018 Holiday Catalog and wanted me to make her one.

Stampin' Up! Large Letters Framelit Dies Merry Christmas Banner and Dashing Deer Banner by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations
The Banner Punch Board from We R Memory Keepers was a great help in creating the pennants for these banners. I alternated Real Red and Garden Green CS to make each banner. While they could have been cut with the paper trimmer, the punch board made it faster and more precise. In the top right and left corner of each pennant I used the 1/8″ hole punch to punch holes to feed the 1/8″ ribbon through.
Stampin' Up! Dashing Deer Banner by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations
Using the photo in the Stampin’ Up! 2018 Holiday Catalog to create the deer banner. There are 12 pennants – 6 in Real Red CS and 6 in Garden Green CS. Each panel measures 3 1/2″ x 5 1/2″. I started with stamping the Buffalo Check stamp in Memento Black ink onto each Real Red pennant using the Stamparatus to stamp each one twice. This helped create the dark black squares I was looking for. Onto each banner, I glued 1/2 of a detailed doily at the top using multipurpose liquid glue applied with a stamping sponge.

I stamped the deer onto Whisper White CS using Crumb Cake and/or Garden Green classic stamp pad on the body of the deer and applying ink to the antlers of the stamp using a Soft Suede marker. The coordinating Detailed Deer Framelit dies and the big shot cut each one out perfectly. (The magnetic platform helped hold it in place while running it through the big shot making a perfect cut.) For each Crumb Cake colored deer, I cut out a bow from Real Red CS. The bows were attached to the deer and the deer to the pennants using multipurpose liquid glue.

Stampin' Up! Large Letters Framelit Dies Merry Christmas Banner by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For the Merry Christmas Banner there are 15 pennants – 7 in Real Red CS and 8 in Garden Green CS. Each panel measures 2″ x 3 3/4″. To decorate the Merry Christmas banner I started by cutting 1 3/4″ scalloped circles out of vellum CS using the Layering Circles Framelit dies and my big shot. I cut the Merry Christmas letters out of Real Red and Garden Green CS using the Large Letters Framelit dies and my big shot. Each letter was attached to a vellum circle using glue dots. Additional glue dots were added to the back of the vellum circles using the letters to mask the glue dots so they won’t be seen from the front. A deer cut out of Gold Foil CS using the Detailed Deer Thinlit dies made this banner coordinate well with the deer banner above.

The two banners make a great set and would look great as holiday decorations in your home. The would also coordinate well with the Dashing Deer Frame I created for another post – see that post HERE.
