Dandelion Wishes Fireworks Birthday

Hi Stampers. My cousin Jeff was born on the 4th of July and is a Vietnam Veteran.  He loves all things patriotic!  Today’s card combines Patriotic (red, white and blue) and Birthday (Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set) and a surprise.  I used the Dandelion Wishes stamp set to create fireworks!  I just LOVE IT when I can use a stamp set for something it was not intended for.  It makes my stamps sets even more useful!

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 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Cherry Cobbler CS. A 3-1/4″ x 4-1/2″ layer of Whisper White CS is next. The Dandelions, from the Dandelion Wishes stamp set, were stamped onto a 3″ x 4-1/4″ layer of Night of Navy CS in Versamark ink. Silver Stampin’ Emboss powder was poured over the top with excess tapped off.  The embossing powder is heated using the heat tool. (Make sure to heat from both sides of the cardstock to prevent warping.)

The “time to celebrate!” sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set, from Stampin’ Up!  It is stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink onto a 1/2″ x 3″ strip of Whisper White CS. This layer is adhered to a 3/4″ x 3″ strip of Cherry Cobbler CS. The two of them are then adhered to the card front.

I am just tickled at how it came out!  This card can be used for a birthday card or a Happy 4th of July card. Both occasions are a reason to celebrate!

To continue the fireworks theme to the inside, the dandelion stamps are used again on the interior 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Whisper White CS.  The upper left corner is stamped in Night of Navy ink and the lower right corner is stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink.  The middle is left blank so that I can write my message on the inside of the card.

Tea Together Flowers Leaves Blog Hop

Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop Badge

Hi Stampers. Welcome to another Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop.  This time we were asked to use flowers or leaves on our projects.  I chose to use the Petal Promenade DSP – it has lots of beautiful flowers! This DSP also goes wonderfully with the Tea Together stamp set.  The framelits were offered as a Sale-a-bration item, but are carrying over into the new annual 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 Tranquil Tide CS. Next, I took piece of Blackberry Bliss 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 Memento Black ink onto scraps of Whisper White CS. Next, 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.

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 around 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 (from the Tea Together stamp set) in Blackberry Bliss ink onto a piece of Whisper White CS 5-1/4” x 3-1/2”. I finished off this card by wrapping 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.

Z-fold Tea Together Mother’s Day Card

Hi Stampers. Welcome to the Pals’ April  Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because we love to put our ”Families First”! Our Design Team created beautiful projects to inspire you. 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 full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Stampin' Up! Tea Together fancy fold handmade card Petal Promeade DSP by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I chose to make a Mother’s Day card. This z fold card starts with a base is a 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ piece of Mossy Meadow CS. Next, I took piece of Calypso Coral 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. The Calypso Coral layer was attached to the Mossy Meadow 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).

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, because I didn’t want it to be too shocking white.) These items were then cut out using the Tea Time Framelit dies.

Valentine’s Day Banner

Hi Stampers. Today I’d like to show you how to use your Stampin’ Up! Supplies to make holiday home decor.  I made this “Be Mine” Valentines Day banner.  This was super easy to make using the Be Mine Framelit Dies and the Large Letter Dies.Stampin' Up! Be Mine Stitched framelit dies and large letter framelit dies were used to make this Valentines Day home decor banner by Lisa An Bernard of Queen B Creations

Each panel of this banner is a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ piece of Smokey Slate CS. I marked the bottom center of one of the panels and went up a bit and made a dot with a pencil. Next, I used paper snips to cut from each bottom corner up to the dot.  Once I had the first one done, I just used it as a pattern to cut the rest of the panels.

I felt the Smoky Slate panels needed a little something, so I used the Sheet Music background stamp and Basic Gray ink to stamp each panel. A 3/4″ strip of Rose Glimmer paper across the top was added next.

I used the Be Mine Stitched Dies to die cut the hearts from Melon Mambo and Powder Pink CS.  For the letters I used the Large Letter Dies to cut them out of Melon Mambo CS. You can use either multipurpose liquid glue or the amazing multipurpose adhesive sheets on the CS before die cutting. (This basically makes them a sticker – no mess!).

I finished it off by punching a 1/4″ circle on either top corner and ran the 3/8″ Berry Burst Metallic Ribbon through the holes to string it up.  How cute is this?!?  I have made the following video tutorial to show you how easy it is!

Valentine’s Day Boozy Box

Hi Stampers.  Today I have a fun “Boozy Box” that was designed by fellow demo Erica Cerwin.  She shared how to do this last October using the Alpine Adventure bundle and the Festive Farmhouse plaid DSP.  I chose to change up her winter ski lodge style to a more Valentine’s Day theme.  I am thrilled with how it came out and gave away several of these as gifts.  The people I gave them to loved them!

Stampin' Up! Valentines Hot Chocolate Boozy Box By Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For the base of this box, I used a piece of Blushing Bride CS 7-3/4″ x 11″. On the long side, I scored this at 1/2″, 2-1/4″, 4-1/4″ and 6″.   The short side was scored at 1-3/4″ and 6″. I used the Simply Scored score board because I felt that it gave me the most accurate measurements.  It can be done with the Stampin’ Trimmer, but you need to be careful on placement.

Next, I punched out a 1-3/8″ circle and two 1″ circles from scrap paper. I used these circles to figure out placement for the holes to hold the test tubes and the bottle. I attached them where I wanted them with a tad of snail adhesive and then punched over them. This is where the Hot Chocolate Mix, tiny Marshmallows and Baileys Irish Cream sample will be inserted.  (I purchased the test tubes at our local craft store in the jewelry bead department).

Next, I decorated the box. For the back, I cut a piece of Whisper White CS 4-1/8″ x 3″ and a piece of Tropical Escape DSP 4″ x 2-7/8″.  Then for the bottom front, I cut a piece of Whisper White CS 4-1/8″ x 1-7/8″ and a piece of Tropical Escape DSP 4″ x 1-3/4″.  I wrapped a piece of Whisper White 3/8″ Metallic Edge Ribbon around the bottom of the box and tied a bow on the right side of the front.

Stampin' Up! Valentines Hot Chocolate Boozy Box By Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For the sentiments, I used the Forever Lovely stamp set.  The “Happy Valentines Day” is stamped on a strip of Whisper White CS using Blushing Bride ink.  That is layered on top of a strip of DSP and a strip of Blushing Bride CS.  All three layers were flagged on the end using the Banner Triple Punch.  The “Love You” is stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White CS and die cut out using the Layering Circles Dies. I also used the Layering Circles Dies to die cut the scalloped circle in Blushing Bride CS.  The white circle is adhered to the pink circle using a Stampin’ Dimensional. Glue dots were used to adhere both sentiment to the front of the box.  Just too cute!

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.

Stampin' Up! Tea Together zfold handmade fancy fold card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

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).

Stampin' Up! Tea Together zfold handmade fancy fold card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

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.
