Spooktacular Bash Fake Vampire Blood

Hi Stampers. Halloween is coming and I have such a cool technique to share with you today!!  In the past, I have used hair gel and blue re-inkers, but recently another demo used hair gel and red re-inkers to make fake blood!

Stampin' Up! Spooktacular Fake Blood technique with video handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I used the Spooktacular Bash stamp set and Ornate Frames Dies along with the Monster Bash DSP to make this creepy Vampire card.

I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut out the center of the card front and backed it with Real Red.  The fake blood is made using hair gel and red re-inkers sealed inside of a zip-lock bag that is well taped together to prevent leaking.

I just love those Ornate Frames! I will be using those frames YEAR ROUND!   For this card, the frame was cut using Merry Merlot CS.

The Spooktacular Bash stamp set has several great stamps that helped me decorate the interior of the card to match the exterior.  The sentiment and jars were stamped in Basic Gray ink.

ICS Blog Hop – Color Challenge – Spooktacular Bash

Hi Stampers.  Welcome back for another Inspire, Create & Share Blog Hop.  This time we have been issued a color challenge.  They challenged us to make a card or project using: Pumpkin Pie, Granny Apple Green, Gorgeous Grape & Silver.  This is a great combination for a Halloween card!

Inspire Create Share Color Challenge Blog Hop October 2019

I made my card using the Spooktacular Bash stamp set.  It was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest by Amy Koenders. I used her layout, but changed up the colors to match our challenge.

I wanted to feature the cute little vampire from the Spooktacular Bash stamp set. He is featured in a silver foil frame and colored in using the stampin’ blends. The frame was die cut from the silver foil using the Ornate Frames Dies.  Truthfully, those dies are why I bought this bundle.  I can see using this bundle all year long!

My vampire is set on a 2″ tag and has the phrase Happy Halloween above him and some of that awesome Black ribbon over that, tied with a bit of white bakers twine.  The two words “happy” and “halloween” are from the A Wish For Everything stamp set.  They were stamped onto Whisper White CS and cut out with another frame from the Ornate Frames Dies. Can’t you just see that frame being used with sentiments all year long?!?!

Harvest Hellos Apple Thanks

Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop Badge

Hi Stampers.  Welcome back for another blog hop with the Global Stamping Friends.  We were asked to create projects using our fabulous bundles.  I chose to use the Apple Builder from the 2019 Holiday Catalog.This punch is part of the Harvest Hellos bundle.  It’s a great set for back to school and also for Halloween.  The apple builder punch can be an apple or a pumpkin.

Stampin' Up! Harvest Hellos bundle Well Written dies Teacher thank you card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Today’s card is made using the Stampin’ Up! Apple Builder Punch. Doesn’t this adorable card make you think “summer picnic”.  I started with the idea of making a back to school thank you card for a teacher, but it could be used for any number of occasions.

Stampin’ Tip: When using a 6″ x 6″ piece of Designer Series Paper for a card front, I often cut it to 4″ x 5-1/4″.  This leaves me with a 2″ x 6″ piece of DSP.  These 2″ strips are perfect for this layout – it can easily be used as shown in this card layout.

Stampin' Up! Harvest Hellos bundle Well Written dies Teacher thank you card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The Well Written dies are a great collection of words commonly used on cards. I find that I reach for them often. Speaking of used often – Do you have the Stitched Shapes Dies?!?  I never even put those away!  I use them so often that they just sit next to my die cutting machine.

Do you have the fine-tip glue pen yet?  It works wonderfully for applying very small amounts of glue to delicate dies, such as this word “thanks”.

Stampin' Up! Harvest Hellos bundle Well Written dies Teacher thank you card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

You could use the Apple Builder Punch with colored papers (with or without stamping) or stamp on Whisper White CS (and them color with the blends).  I chose to just punch them out without even stamping.  Using Real Red ink, I sponged the edges of the apple. A score line down the middle of the leaf and few Glitter Enamel Dots and it was ready to go!

These are the Measurements:

  • Thick Whisper White CS – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″
  • Poppy Parade DSP – 2″ x 5-1/2″
  • Whisper White CS – approx. 3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″ (for the circle
  • Real Red CS – approx. 3″ x 3″ (for apple)
  • Early Espresso CS – scrap (for stem)
  • Granny Apply Green CS – approx. 1″ x 3″ (for the word thanks and the leaf)

EEK It’s a Halloween Eclipse Card

Hi Stampers. EEK!  It’s here! The end of October AND Halloween!  I have another Halloween card for you, using the eclipse technique.  This card is very similar to the BOO card I did on Monday.  See that card HERE.

Toil & Trouble Eclipse Technique EEK Halloween card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I’m a huge fan of the eclipse technique! This card started with a Pumpkin Pie card base, 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″. Next is a 5 1/4″ x 4″ layer of Basic Black CS and then a 5″ x 3 3/4″ layer of Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper.

Toil & Trouble Eclipse Technique EEK Halloween card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I used the Large Letter Framelit Dies to cut the word “EEK” out of the DSP on my Big Shot. Next, I used mini stampin’ dimensionals to pop them up (Monday’s card used fun foam to lift the letters off of the card base). The DSP (without the letters) is adhered to the card base first. Next, you add mini stampin’ dimensionals to the backs of the letters and then insert them into the holes where they go (making sure the pattern lines up).

Toil & Trouble Eclipse Technique EEK Halloween card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For the greeting, I used a 1″ x 4″ strip of Pumpkin Pie CS and a 3/4″ x 4″ strip of Very Vanilla CS. I stamped the greeting, from the Stampin’ Up! Cauldron Bubble stamp set, in Pumpkin Pie ink onto the VV strip. The ends of both strips were flagged with the Banner Triple Punch. I added three gems to the end of the strips and popped them onto the card front with stampin’ dimensionals.

Toil & Trouble Eclipse Technique EEK Halloween card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Inside the card is lined with a 5 1/4″ x 4″ layer of Very Vanilla CS. The cauldron and cat were cut out of the Toil & Trouble DSP using the Cauldron Framelit Dies that coordinate with the Cauldron Bubble stamp set – the frog was fussy cut using paper snips. I adhered the cauldron, cat and frog using multipurpose liquid adhesive. The greeting Bubble, Bubble, Toil & Trouble is stamped in Pumpkin Pie ink.

Toil & Trouble Eclipse Card

Hi Stampers. I can’t believe how fast time is flying by, Halloween will be here before we know it! I have several Halloween projects I’ve done that I still want to share with you.  This card I made on one of my recent Facebook Live broadcasts. (That FB Live is uploaded to YouTube and featured for you below).

Toil & Trouble Eclipse Technique BOO Halloween card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I love simple cards that pop a wow.  The eclipse technique is great for that!  This card started with a Gorgeous Grape card base, 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″. Next is a 5 1/4″ x 4″ layer of Basic Black CS and then a 5″ x 3 3/4″ layer of Designer Series Paper.

Toil & Trouble Eclipse Technique BOO Halloween card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For this card, I used the ghosts from the Toil & Trouble DSP. I used the Large Letter Framelit Dies to cut the word “BOO” out of the DSP on my Big Shot. Next, I cut out the same letters in fun foam to lift the letters off of the card base. (You can also use mini stampin’ dimensionals to pop them up).

Toil & Trouble Eclipse Technique BOO Halloween card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The DSP (without the letters) is adhered to the card base first, next you place the letters into the holes (without glue) to find out where the centers of the letters go. Then adhere the centers of the letters with glue and remove the letters themselves. Using glue to adhere the fun foam letters into the holes and then the DSP is glued over the top of those.

Toil & Trouble Eclipse Technique BOO Halloween card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For the greeting, I used a 1″ x 4″ strip of Gorgeous Grape CS and a 3/4″ x 4″ strip of Whisper White CS. I stamped the greeting, from the Stampin’ Up! Cauldron Bubble stamp set, in Gorgeous Grape ink onto the WW strip. The ends of both strips were flagged with the Banner Triple Punch. I added three gems to the end of the strips and popped them onto the card front with stampin’ dimensionals.

Toil & Trouble Eclipse Technique BOO Halloween card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Inside the card is lined with a 5 1/4″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White CS.  The witch and hat were cut out of the Toil & Trouble DSP using the Cauldron Framelit Dies that coordinate with the Cauldron Bubble stamp set – or you can fussy cut them if you wish. I adhered the witch and hat using multipurpose liquid adhesive. The greeting Trick or Treat is stamped in Gorgeous Grape ink.

Wicked Folds Blog Hop

Hi Stampers.

Welcome to the Pals October, 2018 Blog Hop. It’s a spooky time of year so watch out for “Wicked Folds” while you hop from blog to blog. We promise not to be too scary.

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! Toil & Trouble Halloween BOO box candy holder by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I just love that we are featuring “wicked folds”.  If you follow me at all, you know that I love fancy fold cards!  I make them a lot! But, I had recently made these adorable “Boo Boxes” for a recent craft fair and decided to use this project for the hop.  This “Boo Box” involves lots of folds. 🙂

Stampin' Up! Toil & Trouble Halloween BOO box candy holder by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This box started with a 5″ x 7 3/4″ piece of Basic Black CS – it was scored at 1 1/4″ from each side (this is the bottom of the finished box).  The top of the box is a 4 1/8″ x 6 7/8″  piece of Basic Black CS, scored at 3/4″ from each side. The insert is a 3 3/8″ x 6 1/8″ piece of Basic Black CS, scored at 1/2″ from each side.  I then used the Stampin’ Up! Layering Alphabet Dies to die cut the “B” out of Pumpkin Pie CS. The “Os” were made using two circles from the Layering Circles Framelit Dies and Pumpkin Pie CS.

Stampin' Up! Toil & Trouble Halloween BOO box candy holder by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The box is decorated with Toil & Trouble DSP – 2 3/8″ x 5 1/8″, adhered to the top of the box. To go over that, I die cut the Cauldron and the Cat from the Toil & Trouble DSP and adhered them to a 2″ x 4 3/4″ piece of Very Vanilla CS.  I then stamped “Happy Halloween” from the Cauldron Bubble Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape between these two. This layer was then adhered over the Toil & Trouble DSP layer on the top of the box.

Stampin' Up! Toil & Trouble Halloween BOO box candy holder by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Before folding up the sides of the insert of the box, I die cut the two “Os” using the smaller of the two circles I made the “Os” out of. I then adhered the letters onto the insert using liquid glue.  The corners were cut according to the video below and then the box was put together with tear and tape adhesive.

When the box it finished you can insert round candies (such as Ferrero Rocher or Lindor Chocolates) in to the holes for the “O’s”.

I also made some “Ho Ho Ho Boxes” that is very similar (just a little bit longer) and recently made that box on a Facebook Live. (I do Facebook Live on my Facebook Page at 2:30pm (MT) each Monday). Watching this video will explain how this box is assembled. You can see that HERE:
