Ho Ho Ho Christmas Gift Box

Hi Stampers. Welcome to the November, 2018 Blog Hop with Stampin’ Pretty Pals. Holiday cards are done. It’s time to start on gifts and gift wrap. Let the Stampin’ Pretty Pals inspire you with “Anything But A Card” today.

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 the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal. My project is a Christmas Gift Box that say’s HO HO HO using the large letters framelit dies and Lindor Truffles (could also be Ferrero Rocher or any other round covered candies about that size).

Stampin' Up! Large Letter Framelit Dies Ho Ho Ho Christmas gift box by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The box is made out of Real Red CS in three pieces – top, bottom and insert.  For the top of the box I cut a piece of Real Red CS 4 1/8″ x 10 1/8″.  This piece was scored at 3/4″ from all sides and burnished with a bone folder. Then I snipped the corners and adhered the tabs to the adjacent side. The top of the box is decorated with 8 1/4″ x 2 1/4″ layer of Basic Black CS followed by a 8″ x 2″ layer of Real Red CS.  Using the Snowflake Sentiments stamps set, I stamped the greeting and snowflakes in Versamark ink. (Don’t forget to use the embossing buddy to prevent the powder from sticking where you don’t want it).  I then added Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder, tapped off the excess and heated with the heat tool.

The bottom of the box was made using a 5″ x 11″ piece of Real Red CS, scored at 1 1/4″ from each for the four sides. I snipped the corners and adhered the tabs to the adjacent sides. (Watch the video below to see how I made this gift box).

The insert was created out of a piece of Real Red CS 3 3/8″ x 9 3/8″, scored at 1/2″ from each of the four sides. I die cut 3 “H” letters out of Gold Foil Paper using the Large Letters Framelit dies and the Big Shot. The “O” letters were cut out of Gold Foil Paper using two of the circle dies from the Layering Circles Framelit Dies and the Big Shot. I placed the letters onto the insert to determine where they would go and made marks with a pencil where each “O” would be.  Then using the smaller of the two circle dies used to make the “O”, I cut a whole in the insert where each “O” will be. Each letter was then glued in place using liquid adhesive. I then snipped the corners and adhered the tabs to the adjacent sides. The Lindor Truffles are held in place using a glue dot on each end and adhering behind each “O” in the insert.  The insert was placed inside the box (no adhesive needed).

Here is a video tutorial on the making of this gift box:

Dashing Deer Framed Christmas Art

Hi Stampers. I have been seeing these shadowbox frames with battery operated lights all over Social Media. When I recently had a fellow demo staying with me from out of state, we decided to copy this one that we saw on Pinterest by another fellow demo, Lynn Streifert.

Stampin' Up! Dashing Deer Merry Christmas Home Decor framed art by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations
I found the shadow box on sale at Hobby Lobby. The photo mat in the frame was originally in the back of the box, I trimmed it a bit so it would fit up against the glass of the frame.

Using Real Red CS, multipurpose adhesive sheets and the Merry Christmas Thinlit dies I cut out the words Merry & Christmas using my Big Shot. The corner pieces are cut out of Garden Green and Real Red CS with multipurpose adhesive sheets attached using the Detailed Deer Thinlit dies and my Big Shot. (The precision base plate was helpful in getting these to come out with a clean cut.)

I adhered a sheet of vellum CS on the back side of the mat that came with the frame using glue dots. The words and corner pieces were adhered to the frame part of the mat. The deer were cut from Gold Foil CS using the Detailed Deer thinlit dies and my big shot. They were attached to the top of the vellum to give the appearance of them flying though the air.

The village was cut out of Thick Whisper White CS using the Hometown Greetings thinlit dies. I attached the first row of homes to the back of the vellum using tear and tap along the bottom to attache it to the frame. The micro LED lights were also purchaced at Hobby Lobby. (note: you want to be sure to use LED because they product less heat that the other type of lights. We wouldn’t want it to catch fire!)

The lights were attached using glue dots and small pieces of tear and tape (I didn’t take the backing off, leaving it as one sided tape.) We decided to add additional layers of house in the back. To hide the lights below the snow line, I added additional Whisper White CS and used several layers of stampin’ dimensionals between the layers.

I cut a small corner off of the backing of the frame to give a spot for the wire of the lights to go out to the battery pack. Then it was ready for display! Didn’t it come out cute? If you would like to make one, I am listing the supplies used below with links to my online store. I’d be honored if you purchased your Stampin’ Up! supplies from me.

Wicked Folds Blog Hop

Hi Stampers.

Welcome to the Pals October, 2018 Blog Hop. It’s a spooky time of year so watch out for “Wicked Folds” while you hop from blog to blog. We promise not to be too scary.

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 the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Stampin' Up! Toil & Trouble Halloween BOO box candy holder by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I just love that we are featuring “wicked folds”.  If you follow me at all, you know that I love fancy fold cards!  I make them a lot! But, I had recently made these adorable “Boo Boxes” for a recent craft fair and decided to use this project for the hop.  This “Boo Box” involves lots of folds. 🙂

Stampin' Up! Toil & Trouble Halloween BOO box candy holder by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This box started with a 5″ x 7 3/4″ piece of Basic Black CS – it was scored at 1 1/4″ from each side (this is the bottom of the finished box).  The top of the box is a 4 1/8″ x 6 7/8″  piece of Basic Black CS, scored at 3/4″ from each side. The insert is a 3 3/8″ x 6 1/8″ piece of Basic Black CS, scored at 1/2″ from each side.  I then used the Stampin’ Up! Layering Alphabet Dies to die cut the “B” out of Pumpkin Pie CS. The “Os” were made using two circles from the Layering Circles Framelit Dies and Pumpkin Pie CS.

Stampin' Up! Toil & Trouble Halloween BOO box candy holder by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The box is decorated with Toil & Trouble DSP – 2 3/8″ x 5 1/8″, adhered to the top of the box. To go over that, I die cut the Cauldron and the Cat from the Toil & Trouble DSP and adhered them to a 2″ x 4 3/4″ piece of Very Vanilla CS.  I then stamped “Happy Halloween” from the Cauldron Bubble Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape between these two. This layer was then adhered over the Toil & Trouble DSP layer on the top of the box.

Before folding up the sides of the insert of the box, I die cut the two “Os” using the smaller of the two circles I made the “Os” out of. I then adhered the letters onto the insert using liquid glue.  The corners were cut according to the video below and then the box was put together with tear and tape adhesive.

When the box it finished you can insert round candies (such as Ferrero Rocher or Lindor Chocolates) in to the holes for the “O’s”.

I also made some “Ho Ho Ho Boxes” that is very similar (just a little bit longer) and recently made that box on a Facebook Live. (I do Facebook Live on my Facebook Page at 2:30pm (MT) each Monday). Watching this video will explain how this box is assembled. You can see that HERE:

Now it’s time to use the Blog Hop Line-up below to see what the rest of my Pals have created to inspire you.. Don’t forget to show us some love by commenting on our creations.

Mark your calendars for Wednesday, November 14, 2018 for the next Pals Blog Hop. November is time for “Anything But a Card” where the Pals will feature creations suitable for holiday gifting. Don’t miss the fun.

Picked For You Teacher Gift

Hi Stampers. Thank you for those of you who voted for me in Kylie’s International Highlights!  I’m happy to say that I won 3rd place!  You can see my post from August 8th with my winning card – HERE.  Today we are doing a blog hop of the top 10 winners of Kylie’s International Highlights.  We were asked to make teacher gifts.

Stampin' Up! picked for you teacher gift notepad in clear case made by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I chose to make a notebook, from our clear mount stamp cases, that matches the card that won me 3rd place.

Stampin' Up! picked for you teacher gift notepad in clear case made by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

As with the card, this gift features the Stampin’ Up! Large Letter Framelit Dies and the Picked for You stamp set.

Stampin' Up! picked for you teacher gift notepad in clear case made by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The inside of the case was first lined with a 7″ x 10 1/2″ piece of DSP.  I chose to use the green from the Tranquil Textures DSP. The reverse side didn’t match too well so, I lined 1/2 of the inside with a 7″ x 5″ piece of the same paper.  The front is a 4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ piece of Shaded Spruce CS and a 4 1/4″ x 6 1/4″ piece of Real Red cardstock.  The rest matches the card from my August 8th blog post. (You can go HERE for those directions.)  These pieces are placed between the outside of the case and the plastic cover, keeping this all neat and protecting it.

Stampin' Up! picked for you teacher gift notepad in clear case made by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

On the inside left you can see the green DSP behind the plastic.  I made this 3″ x 4″ envelope out of a 6″ x 6″ piece of Real Red CS on the Envelope Punch Board. The greetings were both stamped onto Whisper White CS.  The “You are Terrific” was cut out with a circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies. Behind that is a slightly larger Shaded Spruce circle cut out with the Layering Circles Framelit Dies.  The thanks was cut to 2 1/2″ x 1″ and the corners were rounded.

On the right side is a small notepad.  I used a piece of matching DSP to cover the top, making it match and adhered it to the inside with tear and tape adhesive.

On the back side. I stamped the “You are the Best!” in Real Red ink onto Whisper White CS and punched it out with the Pretty Label Punch.  I punched out a second shape out of Real Red CS using the Pretty Label Punch.  I cut the Real Red shape in half down the middle and adhered it behind the Whisper White shape letting a little bit of Real Red show on top and bottom. This two is between the case and outer cover.

I hope you like my project, all the products used are listed below with links to my store for purchase. Remember we are at the end of Bonus Days!  Buy $50 worth of Stampin’ Up! in the next few days to earn $5 to spend in September (when the 2018 Holiday Catalog is released!).  I invite you to hop along with the rest of the Top 10 by using the list below.

Tealight Box

Hi Stampers. A few days ago I made a post that had a Christmas card with a very sturdy matching Tealight Box. I promised I would make a tutorial for you.  This weekend I was finally able to set aside some time to film and edit a YouTube video showing you all how to do this.

This is a very sturdy little box that holds 4 tealights well.  I found this idea online and watched a video by a fellow demonstrator, Linda Parker in the United Kingdom.

I have provided a video showing how to make this cute little tealight box and also made a template if you wish to print it or Pin it to Pinterest. These make great little gifts.

The box fits 4 tealight candles perfectly.  I decorated the candles by wrapping a piece of washi tape around them.

The top of the tealight box has the sentiment from Snowflake Sentiments stamped in Old Olive ink onto a scrap of Very Vanilla card stock and then punched out with the Pretty Label Punch.  This is backed by a scrap of Old Olive punched out with the Pretty Label Punch.  I cut down the middle and adhered it to the back of Very Vanilla piece making a border.

I have included a video below, showing you how I did this.

Extraordinary Anniversary Blog Hop

Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop Badge

Hi Stampers. Welcome to the Global Stamping Friend Anniversary Blog Hop – we’re 2! It’s hard to believe  we are been going for 2 years – so lets celebrate it!  I chose to breakout my Snowflake Sentiments stamp set and make a tealight box and a matching card.

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments handmade tealight box and card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I saw a video online by a fellow Stampin’ Up! demo from the UK, named Linda Parker.  She made this adorable tealight box and I had to try one and this blog hop was the perfect excuse to post it for you.  I will be making more and making a tutorial for it in the near future, so stick around.

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments handmade Christmas card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The card started with a Cherry Cobbler card base – 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″.  Next was a 4″ x 5 1/4″ of Shaded Spruce CS. I stamped the snowflake in Shaded Spruce ink on the right side of that layer. On the left side of the card I layered a 1 7/8″ x 5″ piece of Under The Mistletoe DSP over a 2″ x 5 1/8″ piece of Old Olive CS. The layers were glued together with liquid glue due to the small borders, it gives some extra time to wiggle the layers into place.

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments handmade Christmas card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For the focal point I stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink onto Whisper White CS and cut it out with the Stitched Shapes Oval dies.  I layered that over a Cherry Cobbler piece cut out with the Layering Ovals Framelit Dies. It is then attached to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments handmade Christmas card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The inside of the card has a 4″ x 5 1/4″ layer of Whisper White CS.  I stamped the snowflake in Shaded Spruce in the lower left and upper right corner.  The sentiment is stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink.

This is the tealight box.  It’s made out of a 10″ x 6 1/8″ piece of Cherry Cobbler CS.  The sides are double thickness making it a very study little box.  As I mentioned above, I will be making a tutorial for this soon.

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments handmade tealight box by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This is the tealight box open.  It holds 4 tealights. I wrapped each tealight with a piece of washi tape. If you would like to make one of these for yourself,  I have included a list of supplies to make this project below with links to my store to purchase them.
