Free As A Bird Double Point Fold Card

Hi Stampers.

Welcome to the Pals’ June  Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects using “Anything with Wings” 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.

Stampin' Up! Free As A Bird bundle Bird Ballad DSP double point fold handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For my card, I chose to use the new Free As A Bird Bundle and the coordinating Bird Ballad DSP.  This card is a double point fold card. The two triangles on the sides are 4″ x 3″ folded DSP.

Each 4″ x 3″ piece of DSP was marked at 2″ down and 2″ across and scored between those two points, on both sides.  It is then folded at the 1″ line at the bottom.  See the above diagram for an example.

The 1″ part of the folded DSP was adhered to the back side of a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White CS.  That was then adhered to a basic card base 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored at 4-1/4″. The front of the card has a layer of Crumb Cake CS and a layer of Whisper White CS that have been die cut using the Stitched Nested Label Dies (the dies that go with the Free As A Bird bundle). Onto the Whisper White label I stamped the outside sentiment from the Kindness & Compassion stamp set. The two little birds are fussy cut from the Bird Ballad DSP.

The labels were only adhered to the triangle on the left side, so that it will open.  Behind the points, when you open it, there is another sentiment.  This one is stamped in Pool Party ink.  I also added a layer of DSP to the flap of the envelope by putting snail on the flap, laying the DSP on it and then trimming off the excess with my paper snips.

When you open the card, there is an inside layer of Whisper White CS (4″ x 5-1/4″). I adhered a 1″ x 4″ strip of DSP on the right side of this layer and stamped the sentiment (from the Well Said stamp set) in Pool Party ink.

Stampin’ Tip: With this fold there is the option to put it on a basic card base, as I have done here, or you can just adhered it to a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of colored CS, so it only opens once (from the points).

Beach Wedding Card-in-a-Box

Hi Stampers. Welcome to the Pals’ May  Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects with “More Than One Score.” 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.

Stampin' Up! Beach Happy, High Tide, Beautiful Bouquet handmade Beach Wedding Card-in-a-box by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations for the Pals Blog Hop May 2019

For this hop, I decided to do a beach themed wedding card-in-a-box.  I’ve done card-in-a-box cards often.  You can find the video tutorial on this prior post. This card in a box starts with a Seaside Spray (a 2019-2021 in-color) card base, followed by sparkle Glimmer Paper and then Whisper White CS. I stamped onto the Whisper White CS.

Stampin' Up! Beach Happy, High Tide, Beautiful Bouquet handmade Beach Wedding Card-in-a-box by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations for the Pals Blog Hop May 2019

I cut waves out of some scrap Seaside Spray CS and used some 2-way glue and dazzling diamond glitter on the tips of the waves and attached them to the cross members first.  Next I stamped the palm trees from the Beach Happy stamp set in Garden Green and Soft Suede inks.  I used my Brother Scan-n-Cut to cut them out.  I attached them to the waves using strips of acetate for stability.

Stampin' Up! Beach Happy, High Tide, Beautiful Bouquet handmade Beach Wedding Card-in-a-box by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations for the Pals Blog Hop May 2019

The bride and groom hearts are cut out of Basic Black CS, Whisper White CS and Sparkle Glimmer Paper using the hearts from the Be Mine Dies. Using paper snips I cut the two sides off of the Whisper White heart and glued it onto the Basic Black heart to create the dress shirt. I used the Cookie Cuter Builder Punch to cut the bow tie from Basic Black CS and used a sponge dauber to put a little Whisper White ink to the edges of the bow tie to make it pop. I used my Take Your Pick tool to add pearl accents to the Sparkle Glimmer paper heart. These are attached to each other and to the front of the card box with mini glue dots.

Using the Big Shot and the Bouquet Bunch dies I cut the bouquets out of Whisper White and Garden Green CS.  They are attached to the cross members with mini glue dots.  The sentiments are from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set and are stamped in Pacific Point ink. I used the palm tree from the Beach Happy set to put palm leaves on the edges of these layers.

Stampin' Up! Beach Happy, High Tide, Beautiful Bouquet handmade Beach Wedding Card-in-a-box by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations for the Pals Blog Hop May 2019

For around the bottom of the card-in-a-box I used the High Tide stamp set to create a beach scene.  I used Sahara Sand ink for the sand, Seaside Spray ink for the water (stamped the lines and used sponge dauber over them), a stamping sponge wedge was used to sponge Seaside Spray ink for the sky.  The sun is stamped in Mango Melody ink, the birds in Smokey Slate ink and the grass in the sand in Old Olive ink.

This card used alot of different supplies but wasn’t actually that difficult to make and I’m super happy with how it came out. I appreciate you visiting my blog and hope you leave me a comment below, so I know you were here.

Z-fold Tea Together Mother’s Day Card

Hi Stampers. Welcome to the Pals’ April  Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because we love to put our ”Families First”! Our Design Team created beautiful projects to inspire you. 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.

Stampin' Up! Tea Together fancy fold handmade card Petal Promeade DSP by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I chose to make a Mother’s Day card. This z fold card starts with a base is a 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ piece of Mossy Meadow CS. Next, I took piece of Calypso Coral CS 11” x 5 ½” and scored it at 3 ½” and 7”. I then used the scallop edgelit from the Seasonal Layers thinlits dies on the right side of the card base. The Calypso Coral layer was attached to the Mossy Meadow card base. On card front, I adhered a 5-1/4” x 3-1/4” layer of the Petal Promenade DSP. I adhered another 5-1/4” x 3-1/4” piece of the Petal Promenade DSP (the same paper, other side).

Stampin' Up! Tea Together fancy fold handmade card Petal Promeade DSP by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I used the Tea Together Stamp set to stamp the Tea Pot, Teacup, large and small flowers in Versamark ink onto scraps of Whisper White CS. Next, I applied Silver Stampin’ emboss powder and melted with the heat tool. I colored these using the Stampin’ Blends markers. (Note: I used the light Petal Pink to just highlight a little on the teacup, because I didn’t want it to be too shocking white.) These items were then cut out using the Tea Time Framelit dies.

I attached the Tea Pot to the front of the card base using snail adhesive and the Teacup to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. After that, the ribbon was wrapped around the card and adhered to the Tea Pot using a mini glue dot and a small flower was adhered over that using a Stampin’ Dimensional.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment in Calypso Coral ink onto a piece of Whisper White CS 5-1/4” x 3-1/2” and attached the flowers. In conclusion, all that was left was to wrap the ribbon around the card and tie a bow on the right side. I’m thrilled with how it came out.

Tea Together Z-fold Card

Hi Stampers. Two of the things I love about Stampin’ Up! is making “fancy fold” cards and a good sale!  Sale-a-bration in an annual event and is the biggest sale of the year! We have two levels – you earn a level 1 gift for each $50 you spend and a level 2 gift for each $100 you spend.  One of the level two gift is this awesome set of framelits that match the Tea Together stamp set from the 2019 Occasions Catalog.

The z fold card is one that has been around for a while and I’ve seen similar cards online and this is my own version of it.  The card base is a 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ piece of Mossy Meadow CS. Next, I took piece of Blushing Bride CS 11” x 5 ½” and scored it at 3 ½” and 7”. I then used the scallop edgelit from the Seasonal Layers thinlits dies on the right side of the card base. On card front, I adhered a 5-1/4” x 3-1/4” layer of the Petal Promenade DSP. I adhered another 5-1/4” x 3-1/4” piece of the Petal Promenade DSP (the same paper, other side).

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink onto a piece of Whisper White CS 5-1/4” x 3-1/2” and sprinkled on Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder and melted with heat tool. All that was left was to wrap the ribbon around the card and tie a bow on the right side.  I’m thrilled with how it came out.

I shared how to make this in my Facebook Live on December 31st on my Facebook Page.  It was then edited and uploaded to my YouTube channel.  Here is the YouTube video.

100th Birthday Card in a Box

Hi Stampers. I can’t think of a single relative that I’ve had that made  it to 100 years old. I find that to be just amazing!  When I was contacted by someone through my Etsy store to make a custom card in a box birthday card for a 100th birthday I was pretty excited.  This card is a bit of a flashback Friday, since it ended up being a mix of current and retired products. But, I thought it came out too cute not to share – after all, you may have some of the items used in your supply (or something similar to substitute).
Stamipn' Up! Card in a Box 100th birthday card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The card in a box started with a card base in Thick Whisper White cardstock. The base is layered with Rose & Silver Glimmer Paper.  The front, back and side panels are covered in Sparkle Glimmer paper. I side stamped the side panel sentiments onto Whisper White CS using Versamark ink and Silver embossing powder and heated it with my heat tool. The stamp sets used are Wonderful Day, Beautiful Bouquet and Make a Difference (for the word “mom” on the front of card).

Stamipn' Up! Card in a Box 100th birthday card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I used Petal Palette stamp set and Blushing Bride ink to stamp the flowers that were there colored using the Stampin’ Blends. For the “Look who’s turning”, I used the Number of Years stamp set (now retired) stamped in Blushing Bride ink onto Whisper White CS. I used two ovals to cut the arches on the banner and paper snips to flag the ends. Sponge Daubers with Blushing Bride ink to make it stand out a bit. The 100 was cut out of Rose Glimmer paper using the Large Numbers Framelits Dies (also retired) and mounted to the card with mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stamipn' Up! Card in a Box 100th birthday card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The center of the box is filled with cheerful balloons, butterflies and flowers. I used the Balloon Builder Punch to punch the balloons and gave them a bit of a highlight using a  silver gel pen. The balloons were cut from Blushing Bride CS and Rose Glimmer Paper. The butterflies were punched from Sparkling and Rose Glimmer Papers and layered on top of each other. Two small pearl accents were placed in the center of each small butterfly. (These butterflies were punched using the two retired butterfly punches – we now have one punch that will punch the two sizes at once.)

The bird was punched out of Rose and Sparkling Glimmer paper using the retired Bird Builder Punch. I colored the beak with the Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Write Marker.  A single small pearl colored with the dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blend marker made the perfect “eye” for my bird (note: you can also use a black Sharpie marker). The flowers were part of an Cake Soiree’ accessory kit that was in last years Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog. All inside parts are attached to small strips of acetate using mini glue dots at both ends. A few more pearls finished it off beautifully. My card in a boxes are a little bigger than a standard A2 envelope, so I make a custom 6″x6″ envelope with my Envelope Punch Board.

The customer loved it and I hope you do too.  I have listed most products used below (at least the ones currently available) which I’m sure will help you create a BEAUTIFUL card!

If you’d like to try your had at making this card yourself.  The card in a box pattern (in PDF format) click here for PDF and  videos I made on how to make this card and envelope can be found on this prior post – click here.  Links to the products I used is below.  If you are ever in need of a custom made card, made by someone else, I would hope you would consider my Etsy store.

Note: Did you know that you can create the “100” numbers by using the Large Letters Framelit Dies.  The one can be created using “M” with part trimmed off using the paper snips and the letter “O” and the “0” are practically identical.

Dashing Deer Fancy Fold Card

Hi Stampers.

 

Stampin' Up! Dashing Deer Joyous Noel DSP fancy fold Christmas card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For today’s card I am once again using this new fold I recently discovered. It’s just too fun and a great way to use our gorgeous Designer Series Papers! This card starts with a Soft Suede card base that is 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″. The Joyous Noel DSP layer is 8″ x 4″, scored at 4″ and 2″ and folded in an “N”.

Stampin' Up! Dashing Deer Joyous Noel DSP fancy fold Christmas card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The top of the card has a 3″ x 4-1/4″ layer of Soft Suede CS, a 2-7/8″ x 4-1/8″ layer of crumb cake and 2-3/4″ x 4″ Very Vanilla CS. Onto the Very Vanilla layer, I stamped the tree in from the Stampin’ Up Winter Woods stamp set in Shaded Spruce ink and sponges some Crumb Cake ink to simulate ground.

Using the deer from the Dashing Deer stamp set, I inked up the deer’s body with Soft Suede ink and the antlers I inked with a Soft Suede marker. I then cut out the deer with the coordinating Detailed Deer Thinlit dies and attached it to the Very Vanilla layer with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
