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.

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.

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.

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?!?!

Plaid Christmas Joy

Hi Stampers. Happy December! Christmas is now official in season!  Today I have a quick and easy Christmas card made using the So Many Stars stamp set and the Wrapped in Plaid DSP.  This DSP is so pretty in person!  Each peach has gold foil stripes on one side that give it a very rich feel.

Stampin' Up! So Many Stars Plaid Joy Christmas card by Lisa Ann Bernard

I’ve been using this paper alot lately. It is a 6″ x 6″ paper stack, so when I cut a 4″ card front, I have a 2″ strip left over.  This layout worked perfectly to use that leftover piece.

Stampin' Up! So Many Stars Plaid Joy Christmas card by Lisa Ann Bernard

The focal point sentiment “Joy” is from the So Many Stars bundle and die cut using the layering circles dies.

Stampin' Up! So Many Stars Plaid Joy Christmas card by Lisa Ann Bernard

More stamps from the So Many Star stamp set had a variety of sentiments to choose from as well as “so many stars” to decorate with.  The stars were so pretty in the corner of the inside that I also stamped them on the envelope flap.  This was one of the cards made in one of my Christmas Card classes held here in my studio.

Perfectly Plaid Christmas Card

Hi Stampers. Happy Monday.  Can you believe Thanksgiving is this week?!?  Time is flying by so fast!  Last week, I held a Christmas card class and we made some quick and easy Christmas cards.  I will need to be creating some in bulk.in order to have mine all done in time!

Stampin' Up! Perfectly Plaid bundle Wrapped in Plaid DSP handmade Christmas Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts with a thick Whisper White card base followed by a layer of Cherry Cobbler CS and a layer of Perfectly Plaid DSP,  Isn’t that envelope flap cute?  That was created using Shaded Spruce ink and stamps from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set.

Stampin' Up! Perfectly Plaid bundle Wrapped in Plaid DSP handmade Christmas Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

On that main Whisper White top layer, I stamped Merry Christmas in Cherry Cobbler ink and punched out the tree. I then attatched it to a Shaded Spruce layer, stamped the tree and then added them to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

In order to stamp the tree perfectly in the center of the punch, we used the Stamparatus.

  1. Place the Shaded Spruce and Whisper White layers in the stamparatus
  2. Hold these in place using the Stamparatus magnets
  3. Place the stamp in the punched out tree
  4. Pick up the stamp using the Stamparatus plate
  5. In the tree stamp with Shaded Spruce ink
  6. Stamp the tree into the cutout.

The inside sentiment and trees (from the same Perfectly Plaid stamp set) were stamped using Shaded Spruce ink.  There you have it – quick and easy! You still have time to order the supplies and have them in time to create some super cute Christmas cards!  (links provided below).

Beautiful You Christmas Tree

Hi Stampers.  While I am thrilled about having my hands on the new catalog and new products – they are not available for customers to purchase until January and we still have Christmas cards to make and send out.  How are yours coming along?  Are you a little behind and looking for something cute to send out?  In this card I have used a non-Christmas stamp set and a non-Christmas set of dies to create a very Christmas-like card!

Stampin' Up! Beautiful You Santa girl in the woods dies handmade Christmas card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

A thick Whisper White card base followed by a Cherry Cobbler layer and then another Whisper White layer makes this card start out looking like a Santa suit.

Stampin' Up! Beautiful You Santa girl in the woods dies handmade Christmas card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The large tree from the In The Woods dies, die cut from Shaded Spruce CS (and a few Holiday Rhinestones Basic Jewels), make the perfect outdoor Christmas tree.  A little White Craft ink sponged onto the edges gives the look of snow.

Stampin' Up! Beautiful You Santa girl in the woods dies handmade Christmas card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

While the girl from the Beautiful You stamp set was not originally intended to be in a Santa dress, Real Red Stampin’ Blends and some Snowfall Accents puff paint complete the transformation.  Add to that a few snowflakes stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed using the Shimmer White embossing powder and some Snowfall Accents puff paint with Dazzling Diamonds glitter added completes the winter outdoor look.

How are your Christmas cards coming along?  Can I help in any way?  Let me know – I’m here for you!

PPP Blog Hop – Winter Woods Alternatives

Hi Stampers. Today we are sharing with you, alternative ideas for the October 2019 Paper Pumpkin kit – Winter Woods.  It’s a beautiful kit and next month coordinates with it!

Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin Winter Woods October 2019 alternative by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The original design was almost too pretty to make alternatives, so I made it very similar, but a fancy fold easel card.

Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin Winter Woods October 2019 alternative by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

My card props up for display – since it is so pretty, it can be a Christmas decoration as well as a card!

Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin Winter Woods October 2019 alternative by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The label with the sentiment on it, is popped up on dimensionals to hold the card open.

I love how the front has the 3D effect with those trees.  I saved the negative of the trees, there is plenty of room in the middle to die cut more things out of that gorgeous shimmer white!

Santa & Elf Christmas Tags

Hi Stampers. I was recently reminded that (like it or not) Christmas is FAST approaching!  Two months from today – still plenty of time to make some super cute tags for your Christmas gifts.

Stampin' Up! Santa and Elf Christmas Tags

Christmas tags can be made many ways.  These are two inch strips of cardstock that are decorated and punched with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.

Stampin' Up! Santa and Elf Christmas Tags by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I think they came out super cute!  I liked them so much that i created some stocking stuffer type gifts using this same look and made a class out of it.  I gave this class away with a $30 order placed in my online store.  The hostess code has since expired, but if you still want to receive the 19 page PDF tutorial I will still honor the deal.  Just place your order and email me. It’s ready to email right away.
