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).

I used the Tea Together Stamp set to stamp the Tea Pot, Teacup, large and small flowers 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, because I didn’t want it to be too shocking white.) These items were then cut out using the Tea Time Framelit dies.

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).

Crazy About Mother’s Day

Hi Stampers. Mother’s Day is quickly approaching, so I thought I’d dig through my stamp stash and come up with a few options to sell in my Etsy store.  I just love  how this one came out!  It features the Stampin’ Up! Crazy About You stamp set that is about to retire.  I love that set because it covers so many occasions all in one set.  It’s very useful!

Stampin' Up! Crazy About You mothers day card with doily by Queen B Creations

For the card base I used the soon to retire, Tip Top Taupe.  I’m gonna miss that color!  I cut the card base 8.5″ x 5.5″ and scored at 4.25″.  Next is a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Pink Pirouette, with a 4″ x 2.5″ piece of Whisper White card stock and 1/2 of a doily.  I added the doily with a few strategically placed mini glue dots.  I then added a strip of the Sweet Sugarplum ribbon.

Stampin’ Tip:  For the ribbon, I cut a piece 5″ long and wrapped it around the Pink Pirouette layer and adhered it with glue dots on the back side.  I then adhered the Pink Pirouette layer to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals so that the bulk from the ribbon wrapped around the back would not be noticeable.

Stampin' Up! Crazy About You mothers day card with doily by Queen B Creations

For the focal point I stamped the flower from the crazy about you stamp set twice onto scraps of Whisper White card stock.  Once in Sweet Sugarplum ink and once in Pink Pirouette ink.  For the flower stamped in Sweet Sugarplum, I punched it out with the Flower Medallion Punch.  For the flower stamped ink Pink Pirouette ink, I used my paper snips to fussy cut the outer most layer of petals off.  I adhered the Sweet Sugarplum flower to the card base with mini glue dots and then the Pink Pirouette flower on top of that with Stampin’ Dimensionals and finished it off with a rhinestone in the middle.  The leaves are cut using the Flourish Thinlit Dies and Garden Green card stock.  I stamped the “Happy” and “Mother’s Day” stamps from the Crazy About You stamp set in the lower right corner of the white layer in Sweet Sugar Plum ink.

The interior of the card is a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White with a portion of the flower stamped in Sweet Sugarplum ink in the upper left and lower right corner.

If you love this card as much as I do and want to make one of your own, I’ve included a list of supplies used below with links to my online store just for your use!  Would you like a FREE copy of the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog?  Please contact me , I’d love to be YOUR Stampin’ Up! demonstrator!!

Pals “Families First” Blog Hop

2016badge-blackberryHi Stampers.  Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for April 2016.  We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our new 2016 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month we are featuring projects that are all about our families. This is a great time of year to think about what to make for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, or upcoming graduations. And, family vacations are just around the corner… how would you want to remember those special family moments? We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.

In February, my husband took me to Reno for my birthday.  We stayed a the Peppermill Resort and he bought me a “birthday” treatment at the spa there (massage, pedicure and a birthday cupcake). It was the best spa I’ve ever been to!!  If you are ever in Reno, NV – make sure you make an appointment to get a massage with Grey at the Spa Toscana, she is AMAZING!

While in Reno, I wanted to check out their Hobby Lobby, since we don’t have one back home.  They had a sale on frames and I purchased several of these great frames.  There is a gap (of about 1/4 inch) between my project and the glass giving me plenty of room to use pearls, rhinestones and Stampin’ dimensionals. I’ve often admired the samplers I’ve seen on Pinterest and wanted to give it a try.  I made an “Easter” one and one that said “Family” that can been seen in my Etsy store and on my Pinterest page.  For this blog hop – I made one  for Mother’s Day.  It’s for sale on Etsy – HERE.

IMG_3650

My frame was 11″ x 11″ overall.  I cut the piece of Designer Series Paper 9″ x 9″.  I then decided I wanted 16 squares, so I did a little math and decided on 2″ x 2″ colored squares of card stock (Perfect Plum, Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight and Pink Pirouette) and 1.75″ x 1.75″ Whisper White card stock over that.  I cut the letters out of Melon Mambo card stock on my silhouette cameo – although you could use the Little Letters framelit dies.

IMG_3652

I placed the letters in various squares spelling out M O T H E R.  I then got out some stamps and punches and decorated the remaining squares trying to do a little of everything – after all, it is a sampler *wink*. The letters still looked lonely, so I used my bitty flower punch and punched out some flowers and put a pearl in the middle and accented a few letters.  I also added a little sparkle with my clear wink of stella brush.

Stampin’ Tip: I glued the DSP to the cardboard that came in the frame and then arranged the colored card stock and glued the corners first, then the two between the corners on each side, and then the middle.  I adhered the white squares LAST.  I can’t tell you how many times I rearranged them until I liked the look. 

Thanks for visiting. To continue with the hop, please refer to the Blog Hop Line-up below. We hope to see you on next month’s Pals Blog Hop!

Tea-riffic PPA292 Sketch

Hi Stampers.  Today I’m back with yet another Pals Paper Arts Sketch.  I loved working with this sketch and I encourage you to play along with us.  I chose to use the “Nice Cuppa” bundle and matching Designer Series Paper for a fun Mother’s Day card.

PPA292 Stampin' Up! A Nice Cuppa Mothers Day Card

I used our new THICKER Whisper White card stock for my card base. (I’ve been loving the sturdier version for card bases, but still love the thinner version for layers!)  The base is 8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″.  Next was a 3.25″ x 3.25″ square of Perfect Plum.  I stamped the hearts and tea bags from the Nice Cuppa stamp set onto the layer with Perfect Plum ink.  I adhered it to the upper half of the card, making an even border on top and sides.  Under that I placed a piece of Perfect Plum card stock cut out with the 2 3/8″ scallop circle punch. Next up is a 4.25″ x 2″ layer of DSP from the Have a Cuppa Designer Series Paper stack. (This is a handy stack of 6″ x 6″ squares of DSP – they are easy to work with and easy to store.)  The flag was made with a .75″ x 4″ strip of Perfect Plum card stock.  I used the #4 circle framelit (counting from center outward) to cut out a circle of Whisper White card stock that fit perfectly into the scallop circle.  Onto that I stamped the sentiment and sponged the edges – with Perfect Plum ink. I then attached it with dimensionals and added a tiny pearl accent to each scallop.  I used my Perfect Plum marker and a ruler to add the stitching around the edge of the card.

PPA292 Stampin' Up! A Nice Cuppa Mothers Day CardFor the interior of the card I stamped the same heart used on the front of the card and another sentiment from the same stamp set (A Nice Cuppa), stamped in Perfect Plum ink.  To further my co-ordination, I added a .75″ x 4.25″ strip of the same DSP from the front of the card and used the leftover DSP from that sheet to line my envelope.  It turned out kinda cute, if I do say so myself. *wink*  I’ll see you over at Pals Paper Arts – can’t wait to see what you come up with!
