Meant To Be Valentine

Hi Stampers. Valentine’s Day is coming… Are you ready?  I just love Valentine’s Day!  My birthday is the 6th, so I love to celebrate from then until the 14th. One of my favorite grade school memories was about Valentine’s Day. I was bummed that Mom got flowers etc for Valentine’s Day and I didn’t.  My Dad was always a quiet guy – unless you got him mad – but that’s another story… That Valentine’s Day my Dad brought how a little African Violet plant just for me. I remember feeling so special! Do you have any fun memories of Valentine’s Day?

Today I have a cute little pairing for you.  A card and Tootsie Pop holder made using the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper, the Meant To Be stamp set and the Heart Punch pack. I just LOVE that our Designer Series Papers designed for holidays have the holiday on one side and something generic on the other side.  If I don’t use up all my DSP for a holiday – there is always the other side for a non-holiday card.

Isn’t this a cute little set?  I started with the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper. Choosing this paper gave me my color palette – Whisper White, Flirty Flamingo and Real Red. I then added the Meant to Be stamp set, because the small sentiments fit well into the heart I punched out of the DSP using the Scalloped Heart Punch from the new Heart Punch Pack. Another great thing about our DSP papers – they often have a design that can be punched or die cut out with the coordinating products!

This card uses a Flirty Flamingo card base and a 2-1/4″ backing of Cherry Cobbler CS to go behind my 2″ strip of DSP.

The heart was punched out of the DSP – the scalloped heart punch from the Heart Punch Pack fit perfectly.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Meant to Be stamp set into the middle of the heart (in Cherry Cobbler ink) and adhered it to my card front using stampin’ dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment and floral pieces using Cherry Cobbler ink onto a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White CS and adhered it to the inside of my card.

Just because we are now adults, doesn’t mean we can’t hand out Valentine’s to our friends (or even people we encounter while running errands – store clerk, bank teller, hairdresser – you get the idea).

These are super easy to make out of a 2″ strip of CS and the Scallop Tag Topper Punch.  I added a coordinating DSP heart to match the card and added the tootsie pop and some ribbon. (If you require further instruction – check out this video on my YouTube channel by clicking HERE).

Masking Technique – Timeless Tropical

Hi Stampers.  I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of snow and ready for some time in the tropics!  Today’s card features a new stamp set called Timeless Tropical.  Someone had asked me to show them how to do the masking technique, so I thought this set would make the perfect example.  You can see how I made these cards by watching the video below.

Card #1:

Stampin' Up! Timeless Tropical stamp set In the Tropics Dies Masking Technique with Post-It and Masking Fluid by Queen B Creations

This was the card I made first. I stamped the flower first, masked it and then stamped the leaves.

Stampin’ Tip: For masking, stamp the image you want in the foreground first, then stamp it again on a post it note.  Cut out the image on the post it note with paper snips (or the coordinating die). Place the post -it note image over the stamped image on your card layer.  Then stamp the images you want to appear to be coming from behind.  After you have done this you can remove the post it note and finish the card as normal.

I colored in the flower with Stampin’ Blends.  To try to give it more shading, I used Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blend combos on the flower.  The leaves are colored using Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.

Card #2:

Stampin' Up! Timeless Tropical stamp set In the Tropics Dies Masking Technique with Post-It and Masking Fluid by Queen B Creations

The card base is Mango Melody followed by a layer of Garden Green CS and then my Whisper White layer. I don’t know if you can tell, but the sentiment has a little variation in color.  I needed to re-ink my pad, so I added the ink but before rubbing it with a spoon to spread it around, I inked my stamp.  It came out pretty.

This flower was colored with Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends combo and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blend for center stem.  After I colored with the Stampin’ Blends, I inked a sponge dauber with Calypso Coral ink and dabbed it in the center of the flower.

The inside of the card has another layer of Whisper White CS that I stamped on using more stamps from the Timeless Tropical stamp set. The video below shows how I made these cards.

Stampin’ Tip: To get two colors of ink on one stamp, ink the stamp with the brush end of the Stampin’ Write markers. Then “huff” (breathe heavy) on the inked stamp.  The mositure from your breathe will sort of re-wet the ink. Then stamp onto the cardstock.

Lovely Lily Pad Perennial Birthday

Hi Stampers.  If you frequent my blog often you know that I love fancy folds and cards with a little more detail.  Once in a while I need to create a super simple card.  This is a card we made in my last birthday card making class (here in Twin Falls, Idaho).

Stampin' Up! Lovely Lily Lasting Lily Perennial Birthday by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts with a Bermuda Bay card base followed by a layer of Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper – this DSP is GORGEOUS and FREE!  You can earn this paper for free by placing a $50 order as a level one sale-a-bration item. But, hurry – it’s only while supplies last!

Stampin' Up! Lovely Lily Lasting Lily Perennial Birthday by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I added a 1-3/4″ strip of Rich Razzleberry CS across the bottom  and placed my focal point over the top of that.  My focal point is a sentiment from the Perennial Birthday stamp set, stamped on Whisper White CS using Coastal Cabana ink.  This sentiment was then punched out using my 2″ circle punch and backed with a 2-1/4″ circle punched out of Coastal Cabana CS. Three Glitter Enamel Dots, randomly placed, finishes off the look.

Stampin' Up! Lovely Lily Lasting Lily Perennial Birthday by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For the inside the card, I stamped the Happy Birthday (from the Perennial Birthday stamp set) in Bermuda Bay ink onto a layer of Whisper White CS. Before adhering it to the inside, I stamped the lily from the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set in two corners using Coastal Cabana ink.  This flower is pretty large and I didn’t want it to take over the inside, so it was hanging off the edge when I stamped it.

The Lasting Lily stamp set is also a level one SAB item and a set of coordinating dies is a level two SAB item – FREE with a $100 order.  There are some awesome freebies available while supplies last.

Love You To Pieces Valentine

Hi Stampers. I am absolutely in love with our new January – June Mini Catalog. The products in there coordinate beautifully with items from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. For instance – this card uses the From My Heart Specialty DSP from the Mini and the Love You To Pieces stamp set from the Annual Catalog.

Stampin' Up! Love You To Pieces handmade Valentines Day card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card is made using Blushing Bride CS and the From My Heart Specialty DSP.  The top (smaller) layers are added with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the Love You To Pieces puzzle pieces onto Whisper White scraps using Lovely Lipstick ink and die cut them using the Puzzle Pieces Dies.

I happened to have some leftover Toile Tidings Glitter Enamel Dots – I adhered 3 of them to the card front to add some sparkle.

Inside the card, I stamped the sentiment in Lovely Lipstick ink.  I also used Lovely Lipstick ink to stamp a puzzle piece in two of the corners (before adhering it to the card base – so they could hang off the edge a bit).  This would make a great card to give my husband (of 30 years) for Valentine’s Day – He is my missing piece. 🙂

A Good Man Summertime Card

Hi Stampers. Wednesday I shared with you a card made using the A Good Man stamp set.  That card was a fancy fold, this one is very similar but a simpler card to make.

Stampin' Up! A Good Man Summertime card man on beach by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For this card, I used the same colors and set, but a different focal image and background stamp. This masculine card would be great for Father’s Day or a Father’s Birthday.

Stampin' Up! A Good Man Summertime card man on beach by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This guy in the lounge chair looks so relaxed… I thought he looked like he was at the beach, so I colored him with the Stampin’ Blends and then sponged Balmy Blue for a sky and Crumb Cake for sand.

Stampin' Up! A Good Man Summertime card man on beach by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

To give it a little dimension – the center panels are popped up with stampin’ dimensionals.

To coordinate the inside with the outside of the card, I sponged the Balmy Blue and Crumb Cake above and below the sentiment. I really like how it came out.  Do you?

Stampin’ Friends Birthday Bash Blog Hop

Hi Stampers. Welcome to the Stampin Friends Blog Hop! This month’s theme is “Birthday Bash”. If you are following along the hop, you have arrived from Katja Ettig’s blog. Be sure to read through my blog, comment below and continue to Kim Quade’s blog. If you get lost along the way, you can find a list of Blog Hoppers at the end of each Blog.

Here are the projects I created for this month’s hop using the Peaceful Poppies Suite from Stampin’ Up!

Stampin' Up! Painted Poppies Peaceful Poppies Dies Peaceful Poppies DSP handmade card with tiny treat box by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I made a birthday card with coordinating envelope and decorated a tiny treat box full of Hershey Kisses.

Stampin' Up! Painted Poppies Peaceful Poppies Dies Peaceful Poppies DSP handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

To begin, I adhered a layer of Peaceful Poppies DSP to my Real Red card base.  I then die cut a Real Red and a Whisper White layer using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  The only stamping I did on the front of the card was the speckles behind my poppies. That stamp is from the coordinating Painted Poppies stamp set.

Stampin' Up! Painted Poppies Peaceful Poppies Dies Peaceful Poppies DSP handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

My focal point was die cut using the Poppy Moments Dies. The poppies were die cut from Real Red, Poppy Parade and Basic Black CS.  The leaves are die cut from Old Olive and Mossy Meadow CS. The are adhered together with liquid glue and then adhered to card with a mix of liquid glue and stampin’ dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Painted Poppies Peaceful Poppies Dies Peaceful Poppies DSP handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Inside the card I used a layer of Whisper White CS.  I stamped the sentiment “Happy Birthday” in Poppy Parade ink and adhered a 3/4″ strip of DSP to the bottom of the layer – to make it match the rest of my project.

As a small gift to go with my card, I used on of our Tiny Treat Boxes and filled it with Hershey Kisses. I wrapped a 1-3/4″ strip of DSP all the way around the box and adhered with snail adhesive.  Some Whisper White ribbon wrapped around it like a gift finishes off my look.  I hope you like it and give it a try yourself.
