It Starts With Art Framed Sampler

Hi Stampers.  A few months ago I offered a class to make this adorable framed sampler.  I just love how it came out and hung it on the wall in my studio for all who enter to enjoy.  Today I’m sharing it with you, my blog followers!

Stampin' Up! It Starts With Art Framed Sampler by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This sampler fits in an 8″ x 8″ shadow box frame.  The background is a fairly simple piece of Designer Series Paper.  I used the Crafting Forever and It Starts With Art stamp sets.  I also had a retired single stamp of the Stampin’ Up! statement of the heart. Most of the stamping wasThis is  done using Momento Black ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends.

While some images are stamped directly onto the Whisper White squares, some were stamped onto scraps of Whisper White CS and cut out with the coordinating dies or fussy cut with paper snips (or the Brother Scan n Cut).

I used an assortment of pretty colored cardstocks – Melon Mambo, Coastal Cabana, Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather, Granny Apple Green, Purple Posey, Pineapple Punch and Balmy Blue.  The “crafting forever – housework whenever” sentiment is stamped in Melon Mambo ink and the “Do something creative everyday” is stamped in Gorgeous Grape ink.

It was a little complicated to try to get photos of this sampler actually IN the frame due to the reflection on the glass.  But, here it is…

Scalloped Tag Topper Punch Bookmark

Hi Stampers. Today is a quick post just to show you a bookmark that we made at my Annual Catalog launch back in June. It was on my mind, because I’m planning the 2019 Holiday Catalog Launch for the beginning of September. 🙂  I hope you can come!

Stampin' Up! 2019 Holiday Catalog shop at www.QueenBCreations.net

This bookmark showcases the 2019-2021 in-colors.  In order to have the printed color names and my website address, I created it on the computer and printed it on the Whisper White CS using my computer printer.  They were then cut into 1-3/4″ strips (on the right, the left side is 2″ with a 2-1/4″ base and a tad too wide for the tag topper punch).

Stampin' Up! 2019-2021 In Color Bookmark made using the Tag Topper Punch and Varied Vases stamp set by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Next, I used the in-color inks and the Varied Vases stamp set to stamp the flowers. On one bookmark on the left, I just stamped the outline of the flower.  For the bookmark on the right, I stamped the outline and the fill stamps.  These are stamped full strength for both.  At the catalog launch, we stamped off once for the fill stamps, much better effect.

I used the vases builder punch to punch the vases out of the in-color cardstock and adhered them to the Whisper White layer using multipurpose liquid glue.  Next, I cut Pretty Peacock CS into strips that were 8-1/2″ x 2″ and used the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch to punch the top.  The Whisper White layer is adhered to the Pretty Peacock CS using snail adhesive.

The finishing touch was a 4″ piece of ribbon looped through the top hole on the bookmark.  This bookmark is great to use in the catalog to hold your spot, but also allows gives you a true example of the new in-color inks and cardstocks.

Daisy Lane Gingham Note Cards in Holder

Hi Stampers. Today I am showcasing a cute gift set of Daisy Lane decorated note cards that I recently gave to a fellow Stampin’ Up! demo who helped me out with something.

Stampin' Up! Daisy Lane 2019-2021 in-colors ginham notecard set with holder by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This gift set uses the Stampin’ Up! pre-cut / pre-scored note cards and envelopes.  The Whisper White or Very Vanilla note cards with envelopes are a great place to start if you are looking for something quick and easy!

The note cards and envelopes fit perfectly into this simple little holder made from a single 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of cardstock. For this gift set I used Pretty Peacock – the photo above is another one in Pacific Point. To make the holder, I scored the CS in half both ways (5-1/2″ on long side and 4-1/4″ on short side.  I then cut from the 5-1/2″ mark to the center 4-1/4″ mark on two side (as shown in photo above).

Stampin' Up! Daisy Lane 2019-2021 in-colors ginham notecard set with holder by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

To make the holder, I just folded on the 5-1/2″ score line and then on the 4-1/4″ score line.  To tie the folder shut, I wrapped Silver 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon around and attached it with snail adhesive. I did this before decorating the front of the folder, so that the ribbon would be behind layers.

Stampin' Up! Daisy Lane 2019-2021 in-colors ginham notecard set with holder by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The cover is decorated by using a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Pretty Peacock DSP and then a 3-3/4″ x 5″ layer of Whisper White CS.  I used Garden Green and Pretty Peacock ink to stamp the stem, flower and sentiments onto the Whisper White layer.

Stampin' Up! Daisy Lane 2019-2021 in-colors ginham notecard set with holder by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I placed a clear faceted gem in the center of the daisy and tied a bow on the side of the holder.

Inside the holder are five note cards with envelopes, on of each of the 2019-2021 in-colors. First, I stamped the leaves onto the note card using Garden Green ink.  There is a 5″ x 1-1/4″ piece of the gingham pattern from the 2019-2021 in-color DSP topped with a 5″ x 1″ piece of Whisper White CS.  The sentiment in stamped onto the Whisper White strip of CS in the coordinating in-color ink.

I stamped the medium daisy three times (in the in-color) and punched them out with the Medium Daisy punch.  The three flowers are attached together and then to the card using mini glue dots.

In the center of the top daisy I put some fine-tip glue and then the dazzling diamonds glitter.  I cut a piece of the DSP a little larger than the flap on the envelope, adhered it with snail adhesive on the edges of flap and trimmed off excess with the paper snips.

On the inside of the note card I stamped the word “smile” and adhered a 3/4″ strip of the DSP on the right side vertically. I am just tickled with how it came out!

I am in love with this stamp set and the gingham DSP.  Did you know that the 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper (which includes the gingham) is available in every color Stampin’ Up! has!?!?  You can see them on page 168 in the Annual Catalog.  The photo only shows one color, but the stack comes with 4 of each color in 2 double sided designs.  They are sold by color families.

April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Alternative

Hi Stampers. I have to confess.  I have not been a fan of Paper Pumpkin in the past, but they have been making great strides in improvement to these kits.  There is also a lot more “alternative” ideas for using these kits out there in case you don’t like it exactly as designed.  This is one of those alternative ideas.  The Sentimental Rose kit that was released in April 2019 had a great distINKtive rose stamp in it.  I used that rose and it’s leaves to create these cards.

The Paper Pumpkin kit is a monthly subscription for a paper crafting kit.  Each month you get an all inclusive kit – ie: an exclusive set of stamps, papers, dimensionals, glue dots, die cuts and an ink spot. You can purchase this a month to month subscription or you can purchase a prepaid subscription (for yourself or a friend)- hint – the prepaid option is a great way to earn those Bonus Days $5 coupons.

What is a distINKtive stamp?  It is a new style of stamp that Stampin’ Up! have developed called a Distinktive stamp. This type of stamp lays down the ink at different opacities giving the finished image more depth – just ink the surface lightly for a perfect photographic finish.

Step-by-Step Tutorial:

Stampin' Up! thanks card set April 2019 paper pumpkin alternative by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

1. Start with a card base 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. (I used Lovely Lipstick, Petal Pink and Gorgeous Grape cardstock.
2. Folded and burnished at the score line.

3. Dry emboss a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Very Vanilla CS using the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder.
4. Adhere this to the card front using snail adhesive.

5. Cut a piece of Mossy Meadow CS – 1-1/2″ x 5-1/4″.

6. Cut a piece of Very Vanilla CS – 1-1/4″ x 5-1/4″.
7. Use Mossy Meadow ink and a sentiment to stamp onto the right side of the Very Vanilla CS strip. (I used the “thanks” sentiment from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set).
8. Adhere the Very Vanilla strip to the Mossy Meadow strip and then the two to the card front using snail adhesive.

9. Stamp the flower (in the color of your choice) onto a scrap of Very Vanilla CS (approx. 3″ x 3″).
10. Stamp the leaves in Mossy Meadow ink onto scraps of Very Vanilla CS.

11. Cut out the rose and leaves, either with paper snips or a Brother Scan-n-cut machine.  See more info about the Brother Scan-n-cut at my affiliate link HERE. (An affiliate link means – while keeping the cost the same for you – I earn a small referral fee that helps to support this blog).
12. Adhere these to the left side of the card front using stampin’ dimensionals.

Stampin’ Tip: The key to getting a good image with the distINKtive stamps is to have an ink pad that is not too dry, but also not too juicy.  Before I inked the stamp, I rubbed the ink pad with the back of a spoon – pushing the ink down into the pad.

13. Cut a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Very Vanilla CS for the interior of the card.
14. Use the flower stamp to stamp the flower in the lower right corner.
15. Adhere this layer to the interior of the card using snail adhesive.

Product Spotlight – Stamp Cleaning Pad

After I was done stamping, I cleaned my photopolymer stamps using the Simply Shammy and then the Stamp Cleaning Pad.  The new Stamp Cleaning Pad is great for removing any leftover inks from the stamp – preventing staining.

Layering Alphabet Friends Mini Photo Album

Hi Stampers. I’m mixing old and new for this adorable little photo book. The Lined Alphabet stamp set and coordinating Layering Alphabet dies are carrying over. This beautiful Bird Ballad designer series paper will debut in our new annual catalog. I combined the two for today’s project.

Stampin' Up! Lined Alphabet Stamp Set Layering Alphabet dies custom photo album by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I cut each page for the book (measurements below) using the Layering Alphabet dies. Then stamped the letters from the Lined Alphabet stamp set in memento black ink. Since the stamps are photopolymer the are clear so you can see where you are stamping.

Stampin' Up! Lined Alphabet Stamp Set Layering Alphabet dies custom photo album by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For the pages I used the following colors of cardstock: Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, Petal Pink, Calypso Coral, Soft Suede, Daffodil Delight, Mossy Meadow and Smokey Slate. These colors are listed as being used in the Bird Ballad DSP, so that made it easy! I started with the back page and reduced each page by 5/8″.  The measurements are:

  • 4-1/4′ x 6-5/8″ – F
  • 4-1/4″ x 7-1/4″ – R
  • 4-1/4″ x 7-7/8″ – I
  • 4-1/4″ x 8-1/2″ – E
  • 4-1/4″ x 9-1/8″ – N
  • 4-1/4″ x 9-3/4″ – D
  • 4-1/4″ x 10-3/8″ – S
  • 4-1/4″ x 11″ – back

Stampin' Up! Lined Alphabet Stamp Set Layering Alphabet dies custom photo album by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This book is decorated using the new Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper,  For the front cover I used a piece 4″ x 5-1/4″ and for the back page a piece 4″ x 10-3/4″. I used my Zutter Bind-it-all to punch the ends and add the coil. (It could use a smaller coil, this was the only size I had on hand.)

Happy Tails & Nine Lives “Pet Vet” Framed Sampler

Hi Stampers. Do you have a pet?  Chances are if you have a pet – you have a vet.  How cute would this be in a veterinary office? This framed sampler is made using the Large Letter Dies, Happy Tails stamp set and Nine Lives stamp set. I saw this quite some time ago (somewhere online), I believe the idea came from fellow demonstrator Dori Schneider. I have changed it up some and made it my own.  I plan to gift it to my Vet next time I take Sophie (my doggie) in for her shots.

Sophie is my constant companion in my craft studio. When I have classes, she is SURE that everyone is there to see her!!  She’s a love bug and everyone loves her back.  She makes me happy!  How could you not love that face??

It started with an 8″ x 8″ frame and an 8″ x 8″ piece of basic black CS.  I divided the 8″ by 3 and made miniature squares in Basic Gray CS to place over the base making my grid. (I had to be sure to allow for the spaces between the squares).  I then made a slightly smaller square in Whisper Whit CS.

I cut the letters from Basic Black CS using the Large Letter Framelit Dies. I am so sad they are retiring.  If you don’t have them yet, you need to hurry over to my store and buy them.  They are awesome and I use them for LOTS of things! I decorated around the letters and in the remaining squares using the Happy Tails bundle and the Nine Lives bundles.  Both stamp sets are photopolymer stamps with layers (the cat and dog have various stamps for stripes and spots) and have a coordinating punch, making it super easy. These two stamps sets will be carrying over, as well as the punches.  You can save 10% by buying the Happy Tails bundle from my store now. In the new catalog they will only be sold separately.

When you place your order, don’t forget to use this months Mystery Hostess code – from the bar on the right – for your chance to be this months hostess and earn FREE hostess rewards!
