Tea Together Z-fold Card

Hi Stampers. Two of the things I love about Stampin’ Up! is making “fancy fold” cards and a good sale!  Sale-a-bration in an annual event and is the biggest sale of the year! We have two levels – you earn a level 1 gift for each $50 you spend and a level 2 gift for each $100 you spend.  One of the level two gift is this awesome set of framelits that match the Tea Together stamp set from the 2019 Occasions Catalog.

The z fold card is one that has been around for a while and I’ve seen similar cards online and this is my own version of it.  The card base is a 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ piece of Mossy Meadow CS. Next, I took piece of Blushing Bride CS 11” x 5 ½” and scored it at 3 ½” and 7”. I then used the scallop edgelit from the Seasonal Layers thinlits dies on the right side of the card base. On card front, I adhered a 5-1/4” x 3-1/4” layer of the Petal Promenade DSP. I adhered another 5-1/4” x 3-1/4” piece of the Petal Promenade DSP (the same paper, other side).

I used the Tea Together Stamp set to stamp the Tea Pot, Teacup, large and small flower in Versamark ink onto scraps of Whisper White CS. Next, I applied Silver Stampin’ emboss powder and melted with the heat tool. I colored these using the Stampin’ Blends markers. (Note: I used the light Petal Pink to just highlight a little on the teacup so it wasn’t too shocking white.) These items were then cut out using the Tea Time Framelit dies (a level two SAB item).

I attached the Tea Pot to the front of the card base using snail adhesive and the Teacup to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The ribbon was wrapped aound the card and adhered to the Tea Pot using a mini glue dot and a small flower was adhered over that using a Stampin’ Dimensional.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink onto a piece of Whisper White CS 5-1/4” x 3-1/2” and sprinkled on Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder and melted with heat tool. All that was left was to wrap the ribbon around the card and tie a bow on the right side.  I’m thrilled with how it came out.

I shared how to make this in my Facebook Live on December 31st on my Facebook Page.  It was then edited and uploaded to my YouTube channel.  Here is the YouTube video.

Seasonal Layers Hanging Heart

Hi Stampers. Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching and I have another quick and easy card.  I saw this somewhere online… I’ve been searching today and can’t find it again. So, I apologize to the demo who designed it, I can’t find your name to give you credit.  I just love this card.  I was watching TV with my husband one night and surfing the web (probably Pinterest) and saw it. During a commercial I ran downstairs to my studio and created it quickly. 

Stampin' Up! Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies hanging heart in a tree Valentine's Day card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creawtions

The card starts with Smoky Slate card base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. Next, is a 5-3/8″ x 4-18″ layer of Cherry Cobbler CS followed by a 5-1/4″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White CS. The Whisper White layer has been sponged with Balmy Blue ink with a stamping sponge.

The tree branch is die cut from Wood Textures DSP using a die from the Seasonal Layers thinlits dies. I used a heart die from the Be Mine Stitched framelits dies. To create the look of fallen snow, I used a pallete knife to adhere some Shimmery White Embossing Paste to the top of the heart.  It’s best to let the embossing paste dry several hours to dry completely before adhering to the card.

The branch was adhered to the card front using fine-tip liquid glue, I paced a small piece of Whisper White Bakers Twine behind the branch, so it looked like it was hanging from the tree. Next, I adhered the heart at the other end of the Whisper White Bakers Twine. I made a small bow from the Whisper White Bakers Twine and glued it to the center of the Bakers Twine between the branch and heart.

The inside of the card is lined with a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White CS. Onto that layer, I stamped the falling hearts and sentiments from the Forever Lovely stamp set.

I actually shared this card during my Facebook Live on my Facebook Page on December 31, 2018.  An edited version of this Facebook Live is on my YouTube channel. Here is the YouTube video:

Forever Lovely Sparkle Card

Hi Stampers.  Welcome to the Pals monthly blog hop. We’re so glad you’re here! January is all about making “Art from the Heart,” featuring projects for Valentines Day, Thinking of You, Get Well, or Sympathy. 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! Forever Lovely Sparkle and Shine Glimmer Paper card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I chose to create my card using the Forever Lovely bundle from the Stampin’ Up! 2019 Occasions Catalog. My Forever Lovely card starts with a Thick Whisper White card base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. Next I added a 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ layer of Sparkle Glimmer Paper.  Next, I cut another piece of Thick Whisper White CS 4″ x 5-1/4″.

Stampin’ Tip: If you haven’t ordered glimmer paper since the new catalog, you should!  They reformulated our glimmer paper last June and it is now easier to work with, it’s a little thinner (easier to die cut with) and doesn’t shed hardly any glitter!! I’ve always felt that Stampin’ Up! glimmer paper lost less glitter than what I could buy at the big box store. But, now it doesn’t shed hardly any – that’s just amazing!!!

Using the Lovely Flowers Edgelit Dies (part of the Forever Lovely bundle) I die cut the detailed floral edge on the 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Thick Whisper White CS twice.  Once very close to the top and then another one just below that.  I turned the die so that the cut portion both went into the card front (is that how to say that right?? See the photo to see what I mean).  I then used the single edgelt die to cut two pieces of the Rose Glimmer paper and adhered that behind the detailed cutouts using glue dots. I wrapped a six inch piece of Whisper White metallic edge ribbon around the bottom and adhered it to the back with glue dots.  Next, I made a small bow and attached it to the ribbon strip with glue dots. Then I adhered both of those pieces to the card front, over the Sparkle Glimmer Paper.

I lined the inside of the card with a 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ piece of Sparkle Glimmer Paper. Since the middle was being covered up anyway, I cut a rectangle out of the middle so I can use that on another project. Next, I cut a piece of Whisper White CS 3-3/4″ x 5″ and used the little corner pieces to cut the tiny holes (see photo below) in the upper right and lower left corner. I cut 3/4″ x 3/4″ squares of glimmer paper and adhered those behind the holes with a glue dot.

In the center of the inside layer, I stamped the sentiment “Wishing you a lovely day” (from the Forever Lovely stamp set) in Blushing Bride ink.  This layer was attached to the Sparkle Glimmer Paper layer using snail and a few glue dots. (Note: I used the glue dots because glue dots seem to grip the glimmer paper better than snail adhesive).

Still Night Owl

Hi Stampers. I hope you had a blessed Christmas and got to spend time with family and friends. I’m back today with a card made using the Stampin’ Up! Still Night bundle.  Isn’t this owl cool?!?

stampin up still night owl in a tree with moon in the background handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I started this card with a Thick Very Vanilla card base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. Next is a layer of Soft Suede CS, 4″ x 5-1/4″, followed by a layer of Very Vanilla CS 3-3/4″ x 5″ that had been sponged with alot of Night of Navy ink. I stamped the snowflakes in Night of Navy ink and then drew over them with a glue pen and sprinkled dazzling diamonds over the top.  Using the big shot, I cut the moon out of Daffodil Delight CS and the tree branch (from the coordinating Night Owl Framelit Dies) out of Crumb Cake CS. The moon was sponged with Daffodil Delight ink and the tree branch was sponged with Soft Suede ink. The moon and tree branch were attached to the upper two thirds of my card front using multi-purpose liquid glue.

The owl, from the Stampin’ Up! Still Night stamp set was stamped in Early Espresso ink onto a scrap of Very Vanilla CS.  I then colored it with Stampin’ Up! watercolor pencils and blended that with the blender pen. The sentiment was stamped onto a 1″ x 4″ strip of Very Vanilla CS and I flagged the end with the Banner Triple Punch. On the other end I wrapped some twine around the banner and then attached the sentiment and the owl to my card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside of this card I stamped a portion of the branch at top and bottom using Early Espresso ink.  The sentiment in the center was also stamped in Early Espresso ink.

The inside of the card is Very Vanilla, so it’s didn’t need to be lined. It has the sentiment and more branches, stamped in Early Espresso ink.

As we prepare for New Years, I hope you that you have fun plans, but stay safe.  It gets a bit crazy out there.. See you next year!

Farmhouse Christmas

Merry Christmas Stampers!  I hope you are blessed to be able to spend today surrounded by family and loved ones.  My husband and I find ourselves alone this year as our kids are busy working and being adults…  This is the part about the empty nest that I had not planned on.  I always viewed them coming home for the holidays, but as they grow and marry they get other family to spend time with too.  So their time is split…  But, I have my stamping to keep me distracted today and wanted to bless you with this Farmhouse Christmas card filled with Happy Christmas Wishes.

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

This card starts with a Shaded Spruce card base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. Next up is a 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″ layer of Real Red CS.  I stamped the house and tree (from the Stampin’ Up! Farmhouse Christmas stamp set) onto a Whisper White layer 5-1/8″ x 3-7/8″ using Memento Black ink. I colored the house with Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends duo, Real Red Stampin’ Blends duo and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends duo. I added a little bit of light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend to the windows to make it look as if the lights are on inside. For the roof and the tree I used Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends duo. The grass was colored with Old Olive Stampin’ Blends duo and the sidewalk is colored with Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends duo.  I just LOVE my Stampin’ Blends!!  I find it relaxing to color and they shade beautifully, very easily!!

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

The truck is super cute!  I stamped it onto a scrap of Whisper White CS with Memento Black ink and colored it with the Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends duo. For the bumper I used the light Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blend and a little Basic Black Stampin’ duo added in for the tires. The truck was then die cut using the die from the coordinating Farmhouse Framelit Dies. There was not enough room to add the entire truck to the Whisper White layer, so I adhered it (hanging off the edge) before adhering the Whisper White CS layer to my card so I could trim off the extra part of the truck from the back with my paper snips.

The sentiment was stamped in Real Red ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS and die cut it out using the stitched from from the Farmhouse Framelit dies. I used another die from that set to due cut the banner behind the sentiment out of Shaded Spruce CS.  The banner is attached to the card front with liquid glue and the sentiment over that with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The inside of the card coordinates great with the outside. I used a layer of Whisper White CS that is 5-1/4″ x 4″ and stamped the truck and tree in Memento Black ink and colored with the Stampin’ Blends to match the outside of the card. (I used a little bit of light Smoky Slate blender to create a shadow under the truck). There are two sentiments: one stamped in Real Red ink and one stamped in Shaded Spruce ink.

As the card states, I’m sending “thoughts of happiness and joy to you and yours – from our house to yours”.  Merry Christmas to you all!

Star of Light

Hi Stampers. If you are looking for a quick and easy card that packs a bit of wow, I have just the card for you!  This beautiful but simple card features the Star of Light stamp set and Starlight Thinlit Dies by Stampin’ Up!

Stampin' Up! Star of Light handmade Christmas card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts with a Night of Navy card base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. Next up is a layer of Whisper White CS 5-1/4″ x 4″. Onto this layer, I used Night of Navy ink to stamp the swoosh of stars twice letting it stamp off the edge and the sentiment in the lower right corner.

Stampin' Up! Star of Light handmade Christmas card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The coordinating Starlight Thinlit Dies had this awesome start in two pieces. I cut the back out of Night of Navy CS and the front part out of Sparkle Glimmer Paper.  The top star was adhered to the bottom one with liquid glue and the bottom star to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Star of Light handmade Christmas card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The inside of the card has a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White CS. Again, I used the Night of Navy ink and stamped the sentiment in the center and the dotted lines in each corner.  This card proves that cards can be simple and still beautiful!
