A Good Man – Pull Tab Card Technique

Hi Stampers. Today’s card is a pull tab card technique – it’s a bit of a fancy fold / fun fold card.  I used the A Good Man stamp set from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  The video tutorial below gives full instructions and measurements to make this card.

The Blueberry Bushel base of the card is 11″ x 4-1/4″, scored at 5-1/2″.  I stamped the front of the card using the heart from the A Good Man stamp set and Blueberry Bushel ink.  The Stamparatus “hinge stamping” technique was used to keep the hearts all even and uniform in placement.

The slide part was cut and scored using the Paper Trimmer. I just love this image, it reminds me of my husband and son MANY, MANY years ago!  It’s colored using the fabulous Stampin’ Blends!

I used a 1/8″ circle punch to punch a hole at the top of the center panel and threaded the ribbon through it for something to pull on.  (This would also be a great use for a crop-a-dile.)

The Seaside Spray and Blueberry Bushel are beautiful together. I love the way they look layered on the front of the card. When adhering this front panel, be sure to only ad adhesive to the bottom, so that it opens properly. 🙂

Pals Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop

Hi Stampers

Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because it’s “Time to Sale-A-Brate”! We’re showcasing our favorite new products from 2020 Sale-A-Bration brochure. 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! Lovely Lily Pad stamp set and Lasting Lily DSP Sale-a-bration 2020 fancy fold by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

My project is a birthday card using the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set (level 1 SAB gift), Lily Pad Dies (level 2 SAB gift) and the Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper (level 1 SAB gift).  <—  Did you catch all that? Three FREE items!  A stamp set, dies AND DSP – all for FREE!  I just love FREE stuff!  All this FREE stuff coordinates to make a BEAUTIFUL fancy fold birthday card.  I don’t know the name of this fold – the card base uses a dutch fold but then there is an inner card, too.  I had saved a photo of a card folded like this a while back – it’s not watermarked and I can’t find it again – go figure, right!?!

Stampin' Up! Lovely Lily Pad stamp set and Lasting Lily DSP Sale-a-bration 2020 fancy fold by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I had no instructions, so I had to kind of “wing it”.  The Coastal Cabana dutch fold card base was easy – That’s 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored at 2-1/8″ from each side and then folded to meet in the middle in the front.  Next I cut the DSP to 5-1/4″ x 3-3/4″ and die cut a circle from the center, cut it in half down the center and attached each half to the sides in the front.  I repeated that process and adhered to the inside of the card front – so both sides of the “flaps” are covered.  Then I took a slightly smaller circle and cut out the 1/2 circle from each end of the card base – so now I had my hole from outside to inside of card.

Stampin' Up! Lovely Lily Pad stamp set and Lasting Lily DSP Sale-a-bration 2020 fancy fold by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The inside of the card has a smaller card.  This Bermuda Bay card base is 5″ x 7-1/2″, scored at 3-3/4″. This card is layered in DSP 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″. Don’t you just LOVE that DSP – flowers on one side and then semi plain on the back.  I made a banner of a 2″ strip of Blushing Bride and a 1-1/2″ strip of DSP.  I stamped the sentiment on Whisper White (from the Peaceful Moments stamp set) in Bermuda Bay ink.  This was then punched out using the 2″ circle punch and backed with a piece of Coastal Cabana CS punched out with the 2-1/4″ circle punch.  These were attached to the card so that it was centered in the hole cut in the front.

Stampin' Up! Lovely Lily Pad stamp set and Lasting Lily DSP Sale-a-bration 2020 fancy fold by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I stamped a few lilies and a few leaves, die cut them using the Lily Dies and colored them with Stampin’ Blends and tucked them in under the circles. A few additional die cuts from the Lily Dies are attached inside the flaps. Inside the second card is a 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″ layer of Whisper White that was stamped with a sentiment (also from the Peaceful Moments stamp set) in Bermuda Bay ink and a 1/2″ strip of DSP was adhered across the bottom of this layer.

To finish off the card, I wrapped a ribbon around the closed card (adhered it with a few glue dots) and tied a bow in the front. I’m pretty happy with how it came out. I hope you are, too.  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.

Double Slider Card Technique

Hi Stampers.  I know Christmas is over, but somehow I forgot to post this card.  It’s a double slider technique – this is a great fold that can be used for any occasion.  I figured it was worth posting so you can watch the video and learn how to make this card.

Stampin' Up! #Elfie Double Slider technique Christmas card fun fold card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For this card, I used the stamp set #Elfie.  If you haven’t figured it out yet – it was my favorite set from the 2019 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog. Its’ adorable and looks great colored with the Stampin’ Blends.

Christmastime is Here Window Card

Hi Stampers. When my husband and I moved to Twin Falls Idaho a few years ago, we got accepted into his cousins group of friends.  We often frequent a local restaurant and request the most AMAZING waitress!  Carissa is the best waitress ever.  Even if we haven’t been in for a few months, she will still remember our drink order and what menu item we usually get.  She can take orders from our table of fifteen and not write a single thing down. In addition to the great memory, she also is great at keeping up with us and is always very sweet.

The Thursday before Christmas we all went to have dinner in Carissa’s section and had a great time!  She will be having another baby next year, so we decided to give her a Christmas Blessing. At the end of dinner we presented Carissa with this card with a “few dollars” inside from each of us. It made her cry – it was awesome!

Being the card maker of the group, they asked me to make a card.  They requested that it be larger that the standard A2 card and have plenty of room for signatures.  The over all card size is 4-1/2″ wide and 6-1/4″ tall. (I believe it’s referred to as an A6 size). Because I did not have any A6 envelopes, I made one using DSP and the retired envelope punch board. The inside of the card has another fold so that it opens up to a large area for everyone to sign.

I chose to use the beautiful Christmastime is Here bundle.  I used the Designer Series Paper on the front of the card and created a window using the Layering Circle Dies and framed it with Gold Glimmer paper.

Since (of course) I waited until the last minute, I chose to die cut the roses from the DSP instead of stamping them. I think it’s just AWESOME that Stampin’ Up! makes dies that cut images out of the DSP as well as the stamped images!

We all had so much fun that we decided to make this an annual tradition to give someone a Christmas Blessing. I am always happy to partake and provide the handmade card. 🙂

If you have been following me at all – you know that I LOVE fancy fold cards!  This fold is a simple one, but still packs a bit of a WOW…

Wedding Pocket Card – Pals Blog Hop

Hi Stampers.

Welcome to the Pals’ August  Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects for “Special Occasions”  – cards or projects that adds beauty to the special occasions we all love to make cards for! 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! Wonderful Moments Wedding Pocket Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I chose to make a wedding card using the Wonderful Moments stamp set and the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper.  The daughter of a friend is getting married next year and her colors are dark red and gray, so I used Merry Merlot and Basic Gray cardstock.  She’s young, she must know what’s on trend – right?!?

Stampin' Up! Wonderful Moments Wedding Pocket Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I chose to make it a pocket card where the two sides are triangles that folded in and I layered ovals over the center.  I stamped the bride in Smokey Slate ink and colored using Stampin’ Blends.

Stampin’ Tip: I actually stamped on scrap paper first and then onto the Whisper White CS without re-inking.  This is referred to as second generation stamping.  It made a lighter image outline, so my coloring stood out more than the lines.

Stampin' Up! Wonderful Moments Wedding Pocket Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The  dress is accented using the Shimmery Whisper White Embossing Powder.  I just love how it makes her dress sparkle!!

Stampin’ Tip: I filled a dried out blender pen with Versamark refill ink. This allowed me to draw where I wanted the embossing powder to go (between the outlines, but not over them).  Then I sprinkled the embossing powder and heated with the heat tool to melt it.

Stampin' Up! Wonderful Moments Wedding Pocket Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The inside pull out section is a (4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″) layer of Basic Gray CS covered with a (4″ x 5-1/4″) layer of Whisper White CS and a 1/2″ x 4″ strip of the DSP at the top.  I also added the same DSP to the flap of my envelope.  I love it when everything matches!

Stampin' Up! Wonderful Moments Wedding Pocket Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I stamped the sentiment in Merry Merlot ink into the center of the Whisper White layer.  Next, I punched a 1/8″ hole in the center of the top and added Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.

Here is a diagram of how I cut my 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of Merry Merlot CS for my base.  For the DSP, I used two pieces of 3-1/4″ x 5-3/8″ and cut from the left side of the short side to the middle of the long side.  I attached these layers to my card using snail adhesive.
