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).

Stampin' Up! Meant to Be From My Heart DSP handmade card valentines day treat by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

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).

Acetate Card Box Spa Kit

Hi Stampers do you have people on your gift list that could use a good spa day.  While I can’t help you afford a professional spa day – I can help you create a home spa kit.  I used our acetate card boxes and added these mineral bath soaks (found on Amazon here) and a three tealight candles.

Stampin' Up! spa kit made using Brightly Gleaming DSP and Acetate Card Box by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For the holidays I made these spa kits using the Aches & Pains Muscle Relief packets.  These packets are also available in a Cold and Allergy version that would be great as a welcome back to school gift for a teacher (or anyone else exposed to alot of germs).

I measured the acetate box and added 1/8″ for the center of the DSP, then added 1/2″ on the long sides, 1/2″ plus 3/4″ to short sides.  This allowed it to wrap around the box and have a bit of DSP on the top and bottom. A ribbon around it completed the gift look.

Tealight Holder Box

Hi Stampers. With Christmas right around the corner, I’m often looking for small gift ideas. Today I am sharing with you how to create a small box that will hold 4 tealight candles. You can watch my Facebook Live video HERE.

Stampin' Up! Brightly Gleaming tealight candle holder box made by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I found a great deal on tealight candles at IKEA.  They were in plain tins, so I wrapped each one with washi tape to dress them up a bit.

Stampin' Up! Brightly Gleaming tealight candle holder box made by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The DSP I started with was 6-1/8″ x 9-1/4″ and scored it on the long side at 3/4″, 1-1/2″, 7-3/4″ and 8-1/2″.  I scored it on the short side at 3/4″, 1-1/2″, 3-1/4″, 4″ and 5-3/4″. Next, I cut off the sections colored with the black marker in the photo above.

I then made a few cuts to make the flaps for the box – see the photo above.

Here is a graphic of how the DSP was scored and cut for your reference.  Again, for more detailed directions – view my Facebook Live video HERE.

Fall Framed Sampler Home Decor

Hi Stampers. For my craft fairs this weekend, I made several framed samplers to sell.  Today I am sharing one of them with you.

Stampin' Up! 8" x 8" framed sampler home decor for Fall/Autumn by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This framed sampler is 8″ x 8″.  The base is Very Vanilla with Crushed Curry over that and then more Very Vanilla CS.  I used several stamp sets and dies to make this sampler.  Where I did not have coordinating dies – I used my Brother Scan and Cut machine. (I love that machine!) Most of my squares are 2″ x 2″ Crushed Curry with 1-3/4″ x 1-3/4″ Very Vanilla that I stamped onto with a 1/4″ border between squares.  Two of the Crushed Curry blocks are rectangles – 2″ x 4-1/4″. The 4-1/4″ was made by adding the 2″ plus 2″ plus the 1/4″ gap.  For the word “FALL”  I used my beloved (retired) Large Alphabet Dies and the Come to Gather DSP.

Stampin' Up! 8" x 8" framed sampler home decor for Fall/Autumn by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Figuring out the layout took a little bit of math.  I started with 2″ x 2″ blocks.  Since i wanted 1/4″ borders, I knew I could get three 2″ blocks each way.  The three 2″ blocks added to 6″.  The gap between blocks were two 1/4″ gaps. Which gave me 6-1/2″.  Eight inches minus 6-1/2″ left me with an extra 1-1/2″ – putting half on either side gave me 3/4″ each side.  The diagram may help explain what I am trying to say here.

I used the green squares as placeholders while I arranged the four corner squares. Then I centered the other squares between the corners.  After all my squares were attached I removed the green placeholder squares.

House Gift Bag

Hi Stampers. Christmas is coming and I have shared several cute ideas for small gifts to give people.  Today I’m sharing a gift bag designed like a house, made from some retired Designer Series Paper.  This was a great way to use up retired paper and create a super cute project to make someone smile!

Stampin' Up! designer series paper house gift bag by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I found an idea similar to this on YouTube.  <—- click to see her video. (That crafter did not use Stampin’ Up! supplies.) To make it my own, I tweaked it a bit and here it is!  As I mentioned before, I used retired DSP while I perfected my design, but this could be adorable using the Toile Tidings DSP or the Christmastime Is Here DSP.

Stampin' Up! designer series paper house gift bag by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The base used two 12″ x 12″ pieces of DSP.  Both were cut like this and then glued together by that 1/2″ strip on the right side.

Stampin' Up! designer series paper house gift bag by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The roof was made using two more pieces of DSP. To add the effect of snow and re-enforce the top where the ribbon goes through, I used some sparkle glimmer paper on top and bottom. The chimney is cut from Basic Gray CS and dry embossed with the Brick & Mortar 3D embossing folder.

Stampin' Up! designer series paper house gift bag by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The front of the house is made of just DSP cut to look like a door and windows with a Garden Green wreath on the door.  The cute little Christmas bulbs I found locally, but are similar to these on Amazon. Under the house is a piece of chip board (like the backing from a pack of foil sheets or glimmer paper) covered in Whisper White CS to add some stability to the bottom of the bag.

This is how the inside of the bag looks after it’s all finished.  How cute is that?!?!
