Forever Lovely Sparkle Card

Hi Stampers.  Welcome to the Pals monthly blog hop. We’re so glad you’re here! January is all about making “Art from the Heart,” featuring projects for Valentines Day, Thinking of You, Get Well, or Sympathy. 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! Forever Lovely Sparkle and Shine Glimmer Paper card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I chose to create my card using the Forever Lovely bundle from the Stampin’ Up! 2019 Occasions Catalog. My Forever Lovely card starts with a Thick Whisper White card base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. Next I added a 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ layer of Sparkle Glimmer Paper.  Next, I cut another piece of Thick Whisper White CS 4″ x 5-1/4″.

Stampin’ Tip: If you haven’t ordered glimmer paper since the new catalog, you should!  They reformulated our glimmer paper last June and it is now easier to work with, it’s a little thinner (easier to die cut with) and doesn’t shed hardly any glitter!! I’ve always felt that Stampin’ Up! glimmer paper lost less glitter than what I could buy at the big box store. But, now it doesn’t shed hardly any – that’s just amazing!!!

Using the Lovely Flowers Edgelit Dies (part of the Forever Lovely bundle) I die cut the detailed floral edge on the 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Thick Whisper White CS twice.  Once very close to the top and then another one just below that.  I turned the die so that the cut portion both went into the card front (is that how to say that right?? See the photo to see what I mean).  I then used the single edgelt die to cut two pieces of the Rose Glimmer paper and adhered that behind the detailed cutouts using glue dots. I wrapped a six inch piece of Whisper White metallic edge ribbon around the bottom and adhered it to the back with glue dots.  Next, I made a small bow and attached it to the ribbon strip with glue dots. Then I adhered both of those pieces to the card front, over the Sparkle Glimmer Paper.

I lined the inside of the card with a 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ piece of Sparkle Glimmer Paper. Since the middle was being covered up anyway, I cut a rectangle out of the middle so I can use that on another project. Next, I cut a piece of Whisper White CS 3-3/4″ x 5″ and used the little corner pieces to cut the tiny holes (see photo below) in the upper right and lower left corner. I cut 3/4″ x 3/4″ squares of glimmer paper and adhered those behind the holes with a glue dot.

In the center of the inside layer, I stamped the sentiment “Wishing you a lovely day” (from the Forever Lovely stamp set) in Blushing Bride ink.  This layer was attached to the Sparkle Glimmer Paper layer using snail and a few glue dots. (Note: I used the glue dots because glue dots seem to grip the glimmer paper better than snail adhesive).

Party Pandas Valentine Blog Hop

The-Remarkable-Inkbig-Blog-Hop

Hi Stampers.

The Party Pandas send their love and welcome you to the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop for January 2018. This month our theme is Valentines!  You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog or may have come from the person previous to me on the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects.

Stampin' Up! Party Pandas Sale-A-Bration 2018 Valentine Shaker card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I make my Valentine a shaker card!  I started with a Powder Pink card base – 11″ x 4-1/4″ , scored at 5-1/2″.  Next up is a 4″ x 5 1/3″ piece of Bundle of Love DSP.  The heart was cut from the middle using one of the heart framelits from the Sweet & Sassy framelit dies.  I then placed the DSP over the card base and used liquid glue to glue the heart down in place. Use clear accetate to cover the heart in the top shape. (Adhere from the back to hide the edges and adhesive.)

Next I used the foam adhesive strips to create the “well” to hold the dazzling diamonds glitter in place.  I used the foam adhesive strips around the outer edge as well.  (Note: don’t use Stampin’ dimensionals – they are not the same height.  Take it from one who knows… LOL). After the strips are in place, add the glitter.  Then remove the backing and carefully place the top layer over the card base.  I stamped the panda bear with the balloon.  and then placed a post it note over the panda and stamped the balloon two more times – so he had a set of 3 balloons. The “I love you” sentiment from the same set was then stamped inside each balloon

I stamped the little panda with the love not on the inside of the card.  To me a card is not “finished” until it has a little something on the inside.

From the Heart Blog Hop – Valentine’s Day Card

Stampin' Up! Stampin' Pretty Pals blog hop badge

Hi Stampers.

Welcome to the Pals January 2018 Blog Hop. Our theme this month is “From the Heart” featuring heartfelt projects like Valentine’s Day, Thinking of You, Get Well and Sympathy. Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

When I saw the theme – “from the heart”, I knew just the card to use!  This is a card I designed for my upcoming Valentine’s Day card class.  It’s a quick and easy card that would be great for a class of children or for a senior center card.  It’s so quick and easy!

This card starts with a Basic Black card base, 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″.  Next I attached a layer of Cherry Cobbler card stock that is 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″,  followed by a 4 1/2″ x 3 1/4″ layer of Whisper White CS.  I then used the Big Shot and the Large Letter Framelit dies to die cut the latter I and U from scraps of Basic Black CS.  The Sweet and Sassy framelit dies were used to cut the heart out of Red Glimmer Paper.  The letters were attached with glue dots and the heart was attached with stampin’ dimensionals.

For the interior of the card I used Momento Black ink and the new Epic Celebrations stamp set from the 2018 Sale-A-Bration brochure.  (You can own this set for FREE by placing a $50 order during Sale-A-Bration!) I used the Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Markers to color in the sneakers.  I have included a list of all supplies used below with links to purchase them from my online store.

Valentine’s Day for a Friend

Hi Stampers. Do you send Valentine’s Day cards?  I’ve got a pretty one to share with you today.  Now that we’ve all made it past Christmas, I’ve set my sights on Valentine’s Day.  I turn 50 the week before and I’m really NOT looking forward to it.  My thought is by Valentines Day it will all be over! LOL

Stampin' Up! Bloomin' Love Bloomin' Heart Valentines Day card for a friend by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts with a Real Red card base (8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″). The decorative dots embossing folder gave an interesting texture to a 4″ x 5 1/4″ layer of Whisper White cardstock, using the Big Shot.  The Whisper White layer was then attached with snail adhesive.  I then used the Stampin’ Up! Bloomin’ Heart thinlit dies to cut the heart out of Real Red cardstock and the flowers were cut from Silver Glimmer paper.  The floral heart was adhered to the front of the card with Stampin’ dimensionals placed below the flowers.  The silver glimmer flowers were adhered over the other flowers with mini glue dots.  The sentiment and ribbon were stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and cut out with the coordinating die in the Large Numbers framelit dies and adhered with stampin’ dimensionals.

This stamp set and coordinating thinlits are a very versatile and can be used for many occasions year round.  I hope that you would consider adding it to your collection.

Pink & Gray Bloomin’ Heart

Hi Stampers.  I’m sorry that I’ve been MIA lately.  My Etsy shop has been busy and I recently got an order of 25 custom card in a boxes!  They were pretty detailed and she made many changes, but they are now done and in the mail! Whew!  I’ve missed sharing my cards with you all.  Today I’m sharing a Valentines Day card that we made in my in person class this month.  It uses the Stampin’ Up! Bloomin’ Heart thinlits and the Bloomin’ Love stamp set.

stampin' up! bloomin love valentines day love you card made by Queen B Creations

This card starts out with a Basic Gray card base, 8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″.  Next was a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Basic Gray that I ran through the big shot with the polka dots textured embossing folder.  I adhered that to the base with stampin’ dimensionals.  I then used Pink Pirouette card stock and the Bloomin’ Heart thinlit in the big shot to get this beautiful detailed heart!

stampin' up! bloomin love valentines day love you card made by Queen B CreationsThere are a few ways to adhere the heart to the card.  You could use glue dots by carefully placing them behind the flowers.  You can also adhere it by using monoadhesive glue or the fine tip glue pen by adding a small amount to each of the slightly larger pieces on the back side of the die cut.  I next used the Bloomin’ Love stamp set and stamped the banner and the sentiment “love you” in Basic Gray ink.  I then cut the banner out with paper snips and adhered it with glue dots.

stampin' up! bloomin love valentines day love you card made by Queen B CreationsFor the interior of the card, I used a 5.25″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White card stock and stamped the sentiment “My Valentine” in Basic Gray ink and then added a few hearts in the corners using the heart stamp (from the Bloomin’ Love stamp set) with Real Red ink.  I’ve listed all the supplies used with links to purchase them from my online store.

Pals “From the Heart” Blog Hop

2017 Pals blog hop

Hi Stampers.

Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for January 2017. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our 2017 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month our projects showcase themes that are “from the heart.” This includes any of the following themes… Valentine’s Day, Thinking of You, Get Well and/or Sympathy. 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.

Lately, my card in a box cards have been a big seller in my Etsy store.  With Valentines Day right around the corner and “From the Heart being the theme of this blog hop it seemed fitting to make a Valentines Day card in a box.

Stampin' Up! Bloomin' Love card in a box valentines day card for Pals Blog Hop made by Queen B Creations

The base is real red, followed by red glimmer paper and Whisper White card stock.  I stamped mostly in Real Red ink.  The couple on the hill are from a retired stamp set (Beautiful Ride), but I really wanted something0 I could use our new water color pencils on.  I stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored with the new watercolor pencils and blended with the blender pen.  So that they would not be “floating”, I grounded them by sponging Garden Green ink to form a small grass knoll for them to sit on.  The oposite flap has a great sentiment from the Rose Wonder stamp set.  The rest of the stamps are from the Stampin’ Up! Bloomin’ Love stamp set.  All were stamped in Real Red ink.

Stampin' Up! Bloomin' Love card in a box valentines day card for Pals Blog Hop made by Queen B Creations

The glimmer heart was punched out of the red glimmer paper with the sweetheart punch.  The pop up pieces in the middle are attached with glue dots at either end of a 1/4″ strip of clear acetate.

If you’d like to try your had at making this card yourself.  The card in a box pattern (in PDF format) click here for PDF and  videos I made on how to make this card and envelope can be found on this prior post – click here.  Links to the products I used is below.  If you are ever in need of a custom made card, made by someone else, I would hope you would consider my Etsy store.
