Decorated Jumbo Clothespin

Hi Stampers. Happy Friday!  I have a fun and easy project for you today.  It’s a 6″ clothespin decorated Stampin’ Up! style.  This may look like a regular clothes pin, but it’s jumbo size. 🙂

This cute decorated jumbo clothespin would look adorable in your kitchen holding a recipe or on your office desk holding a note.  It’s simple to make. I found them online HERE.

A 6-1/4″ x 1-3/8″ strip of Tropical Oasis DSP covers the one side of the jumbo clothespin. It is adhered with multipurpose liquid glue. Next, I stamped the flower (from the Timeless Tropical stamp set) in Petal Pink ink onto Whisper White CS and then die cut using the coordinating In The Tropics Dies.

The leaves are punched out of Garden Green CS using the leaf punch and adhered to the back of the flower, along with some Whisper White Bakers Twine.  A gold faceted gem was adhered to the center of the flower and then this grouping was added to the bottom of the jumbo clothespin. Wasn’t that simple?

Honey Bee Calendar

Hi Stampers. It’s Wednesday… anybody else have to give it some serious thought to figure out what day it is?  This long quarantine is making my days run together – LOL. Today’s project (of a cute little calendar) just may help.

Stampin' Up! Honey Bee bundle 2020 Calendar by Melinda Matthews of the Creative Royalty Team

This calendar was made by one of my talented Creative Royalty team members – Melinda Matthews.  She gave me this adorable gift made using the Honey Bee Bundle and the Golden Honey DSP that was offered during Sale-A-Bration. Isn’t it cute!?!?

PPP Blog Hop No Matter The Weather Alternatives

Hi Stampers. Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop for March.  Today we are all creating alternatives for the No Mater The Weather Paper Pumpkin kit.  This month kit was faboulous!  We got an additional stamp set because it’s Paper Pumpkin’s 7th birthday!

I chose to make a card and a tootsie pop holder.  This was a very cheery kit, but my alternatives are a little less than cheery. LOL  We’ve all been quarantined and I worked on taxes today… Hence the Basic Gray base. LOL

My card:

Stampin' Up! No Matter The Weather paper Pumpkin Alternatives by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I chose to use the door as the focal point of my card.  It’s stamped in Memento Black ink, colored with the Watercolor Pencils and blended using the Blender Pen. The door started out being not nearly dark enough, so I dipped the tip of the Real Red watercolor pencil into a drop of water a few times and went over it again.  Much better!

Stampin' Up! No Matter The Weather paper Pumpkin Alternatives by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The background the large cloud and rain stamped in Smokey Slate ink.  Don’t you love those scalloped and stitched rectangles?  Those are from the Stitched So Sweetly dies. I used the blue flag and the circle (sponged with some Balmy Blue ink) from the kit and stamped the sentiment in Balmy Blue ink.  A few Pretty Peacock Rhinestones finished it off.

Inside the card, I continued the rain theme by stamping the clouds and rain across the top and the boots at the bottom right.  The sentiment and the pattern on the boots were stamped in Balmy Blue ink.  The adorable bunny and the tiny heart (covering a boo boo) are from the paper pumpkin kit.

My Tootsie Pop Holder:

The tootsie pop holder is made using a 2″ strip of Basic Gray CS and the Delightful Day Tag Topper Punch.  The flowers and boots are from the paper pumpkin kit.  They were already colored, so it made it quick and easy.

Inside there is a Tootsie Pop and I held it closed with a few glue dots and then made a pretty little bow with some of the twine from the kit.  I plan to give them to a neighbor as encouragement that there are indeed “brighter days ahead”.

Watercolor Wobble Card

Hi Stampers. Are you ready to watercolor? Last Friday, I shared with you a wobble card made using the Little Ladybug bonus host set for Sale-A-Bration 2020.  Friday’s card was colored using the Stampin’ Blends.  Today’s card is watercolored.

Stampin' Up! Little Ladybug watercolor wobble card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For this card, I used a Blueberry Bushel card base and Fluid 100 watercolor paper for the background, flower and ladybug.  An Aqua Painter and a drop of ink from the Pool Party reinker were used to great the large whitewash technique in the background.

The flower and ladybug are stamped in Stazon Black ink and then colored using the Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Pencils. After coloring the, I went over them with the Aqua Painter and just a little bit of water – just enough to blend the color and get rid of the pencil lines. The highlights on the petals were made using the White Stampin’ Chalk Marker. They were then cut out using the coordinating LadyBug Dies.

The flower was attached using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the ladybug was attached using the wobble. Here is a side view of what the wobble looks like attached.

For the interior of the card, I stamped the sentiment in Basic Gray and the ladybug in Memento Black. The ladybug was then colored using the stampin’ blends. Remember if you love this set and don’t have it yet – you only have a few days left to qualify!

Little Ladybug Wobble

Hi Stampers. Last year during Sale-A-Bration, I showed you how to make a wobble card using a handmade wobble.  This year, I’m using a wobble I bought online.

Stampin' Up! Little Ladybug Sale-A-Bration 2020 wobble card colored with Stampin' Blends by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

If you look closely, you can see that I stamped the ladybug (from the Sale-A-Bration host set – Little Ladybug) onto the Real Red card base in the same color ink. The Whisper White layer is die cut using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and then dry embossed using the Basket Weave Embossing Folder.

Stampin’ Tip: Stamping an image onto card stock in the coordinating ink, gives you a watermark type look.  This works great to give “a little something” to the background. (ie: stamping in Real Red ink onto Real Red cardstock).

The flower and ladybug are stamped in Memento Black ink and then colored using the Stampin’ Blends.  They were then cut out using the coordinating LadyBug Dies.

So Sentimental Tropical Fun Fold

Hi Stampers. Have you seen the new So Sentimental bundle?  I’m just in Love with these dies! I used the So Sentimental bundle and the Tropical Oasis Designer Series paper to make this fun fold card.

Stampin' Up! So Sentimental Tropical Oasis fun fold handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This fun fold is easy, I just used a 11″ x 4-1/4″ card base, scored at 5-1/2″.  The front panel was cut in half and turned the loose piece was turned sideways.

The I decorated this card using the Tropical Oasis DSP – it’s just so bright and cheery! The Stitched So Sweetly Dies and So Sentimental stamp set, were used to make this sweet greeting on the front of this card.

For the interior of the card, I decided to keep it simple. I used the Crushed Curry and Old Olive Stampin’ Write Markers to ink up the pineapple and stamped it in the lower right corner of a Whisper White layer.  To see all the details on how this card is made, please watch the video below.
