Hi Stampers. Who doesn’t love balloons? The Balloon Bouquet punch from Stampin’ Up! is a quick and easy way to add lots of balloons to just about any project. I love this birthday card that we made in the birthday card class last week.
This card started with a Pacific Point card base that was 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″. Then I cut off the top half of the front of the card – making the card front only 2 1/8″ tall. I had measured down 2 1/8″ and cut horizontally to the score line and then cut down the score line to the horizontal cut. The Birthday Memories DSP had these awesome balloons that worked great with my idea! The DSP is cut to 4″ x 1 7/8″ and adhered with snail adhesive.
The balloons were punched out of various colors of card stock and then sponged with the same color ink. Balloons were then attached to the card base using glue dots. The inside of the card has a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White card stock that was stamped with the sentiment “Happy Birthday”.
I just love this quick and easy card!
Here is a list of the supplies I used to make this card:
Hi Stampers. I’m back with yet another Card-in-a-Box! This one is filled with Ninja Turtles and princess crowns. It was a custom request from a good friend of mine who makes custom cakes here in Twin Falls, ID. She does AMAZING work!!
She was asked to make a cake for a little girl who liked Ninja Turtles AND Princess stuff. What a combination, huh? You wouldn’t think the two went together, but it came out awesome in her cake and I was able to make a card to match.
The card base is my basic card in a box – done in Basic Gray. (You can find my video and PDF tutorial HERE) The base was covered that with another layer of Basic Gray card stock that I had used the embossing paste mixed with a little bit of Basic Gray ink from the re-inker. I mixed the ink and embossing paste with the palette knives on the silicone craft sheet (because it will clean off easily with soap and water) and then used the pattern party decorative masks – bricks. Hoping it will look like a manhole cover for the top, I added the bricks to a circle.
The Ninja Turtles were done as punch art using circles and oval and the masks were cut by hand with the paper snips. They eyes were done with the retired build an owl punch. The crowns were printed on card stock and cut out with my Brother Scan n Cut (I can’t begin to tell you how much time that things saves me! Awesome gift from my hubby for my 50th birthday!). The balloons were punched out of Pink Pirouette and Perfect Plum card stock.
The back panel has a layer of Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper with a layer of Whisper White over that. I stamped the sentiment from Epic Celebrations in Island Indigo ink and sponged Perfect Plum ink around the edge with a sponge dauber. The top flaps have a layer of Silver Foil paper and Whisper White card stock over that. The sentiments from Happy Birthday Gorgeous were stamped in Perfect Plum ink.
To the bottom I added a few character from the Magical Day stamp set that were die cut with the coordinating dies and then colored with the FABULOUS Stampin’ Blend markers. I then attached them to the brick layer with glue dots. Glue dots are awesome for attaching to textures such as the glimmer paper and embossed layers.
Here is my card next to Misty’s AMAZING cake! Did I tell you she had talent?!?!

Hi Stampers. Welcome back for another blog hope with my Global Stamping Friends! Today we were asked to create something for a “festive celebration”. I wanted to share my Hershey Miniature Chocolate Bar snowman. I have been making these for years with the Stampin’ Up! envelope punch board. They are a hit at my craft fairs!
It starts with an 11″ x 2″ piece of Whisper White card stock, scored at 5 3/8″ and 5 5/8″. I used the envelope punch board to notch both sides 2″ from either end (this makes the neck). The mouth is the notch that was cut out of the hat with the Envelope Punch Board. The eyes are a basic rhinestone jewel colored with a black sharpie and the nose is a pearl accent that I colored with an orange sharpie. For the buttons I used a retired stamp I had handy (Stampin’ Up! Snow Place).
I adhered two Hershey Miniatures on the inside (with tear and tape so they stick well) and folded it together adhering the two ends together and wrapping the ribbon around the neck, I tied a knot and adhered the ends to the body with glue dots. for the hat, I used a 2″ x 2″ square of Basic Black card stock. I notched the top of the hat and rounded the top corners with the envelope punch board. The brim of the hat is a 2.5″ x .5″ strip of Basic Black card stock. I wrapped washi tape around the had and used my mini accents punch pack with a scrap of Cherry Cobbler card stock and a rhinestone to make the flower. The arms are made using the tree part of the Stampin’ Up! Tree Builder punch and Chocolate Chip card stock and are attached with glue dots.

Welcome to the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop for November 2017. This month our theme is Holiday Tags! You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – Lisa Ann Bernard @ Queen B Creations or may have come from the person previous to me in 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.
I just love the Coffee Cup Framelit dies. They can be so versatile. Today I made holiday tags out of them using Red glimmer paper and Whisper White card stock. I used Gold glimmer paper and Basic Black to make a belt to match. They were so quick and easy!
I just cut the coffee cup out of the Red glimmer paper and the lid out of Whisper White card stock using the coffee cup framelit dies and my Big Shot. I adhered them together with glue dots. (Glue dots work well on the glimmer paper). I cut a 3/4″ strip of Basic Black for the belt. The belt was cut long and then cut it off with paper snips at the side, to ensure the fit was perfect. A 3/4″ square of Gold glimmer paper and a 1/2″ square of Basic Black card stock over that were used to make the buckle. The “to and from” are a stamp from the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set.
I finished them off with gold cording that I looped through a hole in the tag. I punched the whole using the Stampin’ Up! 1/8″ hole punch.
Here I have paired the holiday tags with my bag of Santa Kisses that I posted a few weeks ago. You can see how to make that HERE.

Hi Stampers. I was recently asked to make a rustic wedding card. For those of you that know me, I’m not the rustic type. LOL With some brainstorming and a little bit of inspiration from Pinterest – I came up with this card.
This card starts with an Early Espresso card base 8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″. Next up is a layer of Garden Green card stock 5.25″ x 4″. Over that I adhered a 5″ x 3.75″ piece of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper. I stamped the greeting from the Better Together Stampin’ Up! stamp set in Early Espresso ink onto a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock and trimmed it to the height of the stamped greeting and flagged the end of the strip with the Triple Banner Punch and attached it with stampin’ dimensionals.
I saw the wedding couple hearts on Pinterest and thought they would look adorable against the wood texture DSP. I used the retired heart punch, but you could easily use the sweet & sassy (heart) framelit dies. The bride was cut from Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper and basic pearl jewels. The groom was cut from Whisper White and Basic Black card stock. I cut a small V out of the Basic Black heart and glued it to the white heart. I then cut the bow tie from the cookie cutter punch in Basic Black card stock. I sponged just a touch of white ink on the edges to make the bow pop a little and attached it with mini stampin’ dimensionals.
I then punched some small flowers out with the itty bitty accents flower punch. I adhered them with a mini glue dot and placed a basic pearl jewel in the center.
For the interior of the card I used a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White card stock and glued a small strip of the Wood Textures DSP that was leftover from the front onto the left side. I stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso ink. To finish it off I punched a few more flowers with the itty bitty accent punches. I noticed they didnt stand out enough, so I sponged a little Daffodil Delight ink onto the edges. They were adhered them with a mini glue dot and placed a basic pearl jewel in the center.

Hi Stampers. Welcome to the Global Stamping Friends First Anniversary Blog Hop. We hope you enjoy our project and are inspired to break out the stamps and ink.
I’m featuring a custom card I made as a special order from my Etsy store. Can you guess who it’s for?
I’ve started with a Basic Black card base using my Card in a Box template – see more info on that HERE. I then covered it with Gold Glimmer Paper. I used the Stampin’ Up! Number of Years stamp set and the Large Numbers framelits to make the “Look who’s turning 82” on the back. I sponged the edges with Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie ink using sponge daubers. I just LOVE the new MINI stampin’ dimensionals They worked great for attaching the numbers to the back.
The piano and flames were cut out using my Silhouette Cameo, using Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry and Gold Foil card stock. That was used as my focal point based on the store HERE. The car, records, record label and dog are his. I printed the photos onto Whisper White card stock and cut them out with my paper snips. I did the same thing with the guns and the words God and Family. I used Basic Black ink and a stamp from the retired stamp set Happy Happenings to stamp onto a balloon I punched out of Crushed Curry card stock with the Stampin’ Up! Balloon punch.
The flap on the left side has the badge from the One Wild Ride stamp set embossed onto Pumpkin Pie card stock. I then used white embossing powder to emboss the work “journey” onto a piece of Basic Black card stock, flagged the ends and placed it over the word journey on the badge with mini stampin’ dimensionals to give it some extra pop.
The buyer requested a custom message on the right flap, I have blurred out the names to protect the buyers identity. This card was ALOT of fun to create! I hope he loves it as much as I loved making it!
