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.

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).

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.

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).

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.

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.

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.

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.

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:

PPA320 Sketch Challenge – Halloween Card

Hi Stampers. Happy Harvest Season!  If you have been following me for a while, you know that I am a Finance Manager at a winery.  We are in full blown harvest season.  It’s been a busy month.  September seems to have flown by!  I can’t believe that in just a few days it will be October.  That means that Halloween is fast approaching.  I’m not a huge fan of Halloween, but I saw this idea of dressing the owl up in a pumpkin costume on Pinterest and thought it would go well with this weeks Pals Paper Arts sketch.

Stampin' Up! punch art owl in a pumpkin costume Halloween card

This weeks sketch called for the two bars, one across the bottom and one along the right side. I started with a Tangelo Twist card base (5.5″ x 8.5″, scored at 4.25″) A current color would be Pumpkin Pie, I’m just using up some left over card stock from the recently retired in colors. I then added a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Basic Black card stock that I dry embossed using my Big Shot and the Lucky Stars embossing folder. For the bottom bar I used 4″ x 1.25″ strip of gold foil paper and 4″ x 1″ strip of gold glimmer paper.  For the side bar I used a 5.25″ x 1″ strip of Basic Grey card stock and a 5.25″ x .75″ strip of black glimmer paper. I used a 1.5″ circle punch to cut the moon out of Crushed Curry card stock and sponged the edge with Smokey Slate ink and a sponge dauber.

I used the owl builder punch to punch the owl out of Chocolate Chip card stock and the eyes out of Whisper White card stock.  I then used the .75″ to punch out 4 circles from Pumpkin Pie card stock.  I sponged the edges of each circle with a Pumpkin Pie ink and a sponge dauber. I layered the three over his belly as and drew the face on the pumpkin with a Basic Black marker. I cut the fourth circle in half and used half as his hat. I used the bird builder punch to punch the leaves out of Garden Green card stock and glued them onto the back.  A drop of mono adhesive was used to attach the eyes to the owl and the pupils were drawn on with a Basic Black marker.  The owl was then attached to the card with stampin’ dimensionals.

The inside has a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Very Vanilla card stock.  I stamped the greeting from the retired Good Greetings stamp set. (It was the only Happy Halloween greeting I owned…)  For the bottom bar I used a 4″ x 1″ strip of Pumpkin Pie card stock and a 4″ x .75″ strip of black glimmer paper.  I cut the end with paper snips to make the flag.

I finalized the card by using a Very Vanilla envelope and some retired DSP to line the envelope.  I hope it inspires you and that you pop over to Pals Paper Arts to try your hand at this weeks sketch challenge.
