Stampin' Up! Coffee Cup Framelit dies Christmas Tags Santa Suit by Queen B Cretaions

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.

Rustic Wedding Wishes

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.

Rustic Wedding day card made using Stampin' Up! Better Together stamp set and the wood textures DSP by Queen B CreationsThis 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.

Rustic Wedding day card made using Stampin' Up! Better Together stamp set and the wood textures DSP by Queen B CreationsFor 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.

Anniversary Blog Hop

Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop BadgeHi 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?

Custom Card Creation for a legend by Queen B CreationsI’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.

Custom Card Creation for a legend by Queen B CreationsThe 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!

If you don’t currently have and Stampin’ Up! demonstrator you are working with and wish to purchase any of the materials used in this card, I’ve provided links below to my online store.  Be sure to use the monthly hostess code for your chance to win this months hostess credit!  (HOSTESS CODE: S4GV43QJ)

Pals Cut it Out Blog Hop

Pals blog hop badge

Hi Stampers. Welcome to the August 2017 Pals Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us today. This month we’re going to “Cut It Out”. Participants will feature projects with “cuts” from punches, dies, Framelits, Edgelits, or Thinlits.

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.

Here in Northern California we are less than a week away from school starting up, that lets me know that Fall/Autumn is right around the corner.  My project for today is a Fall/Autumn themed card in a box birthday card.  This card features some beautiful fall colors (Cajun Craze, Always Artichoke and Crushed Curry inks paired with Soft Suede, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla card stocks with a touch of wood textures DSP and gold foil paper).

Fall/Autumn theme birthday card in a box made using the woodland embossing folder and the Colorful Seasons stamp set with the coordinating Seasonal Layers Thinlit dies by Queen B CreationsI used my basic card in a box card base design (found here) using Soft Suede card stock with Crumb Cake layered over that.  The bottom crumb cake pieces have been dry embossed with the Woodland textured embossing folder on the Big Shot.

Fall/Autumn theme birthday card in a box made using the woodland embossing folder and the Colorful Seasons stamp set with the coordinating Seasonal Layers Thinlit dies by Queen B CreationsThe flaps are layered with Crumb Cake and then Very Vanilla card stock.  Onto the Very Vanilla card stock I have stamped the sentiments from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set in Soft Suede ink. I then stamped the leaves in Crushed Curry, Always Artichoke and Cajun Craze inks.  The leaves were cut out of Crushed Curry, Always Artichoke and Cajun Craze card stock using the Seasonal Layers thinlit dies. The larger leaves have an additional detailed layer of gold foil over the top of the full leaf. The branch and the chair we die cut out of Wood Textures DSP.  All these pieces have been attached to the dividers in the middle of the card in a box with 1/4″ strips of acetate and glue dots.

Fall/Autumn theme birthday card in a box made using the woodland embossing folder and the Colorful Seasons stamp set with the coordinating Seasonal Layers Thinlit dies by Queen B CreationsThe back side of the box has a 2 1/8″ x 5″ layer of Very Vanilla giving plenty of room to stamp a few matching leaves and still leave plenty of room for the giver to write a personal message to the recipient.

Fall/Autumn theme birthday card in a box made using the woodland embossing folder and the Colorful Seasons stamp set with the coordinating Seasonal Layers Thinlit dies by Queen B CreationsThis card fold flat for mailing and fits into a 6″ x 5.5″ envelope made with DSP using the envelope punch board.

These card in a box cards have been very popular in my Etsy store!  I encourage you to give it a try!  I have listed all the supplies used below.  There are links to my store to purchase these items from my store 24/7.  If you don’t already have a demonstrator – I’d love to be YOUR Stampin’ Up! lady!

Kids Cards Blog Hop

Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop Badge

Hi Stampers. Welcome to the Global Stampin’ Friends August Blog Hop.  We are featuring Kids cards this time.  Please use the list below to follow along with the hop.

For my card today, I have a really fun spinner card for you.  Fidget spinners seem to be all the rage now days – so what could be better for a kids birthday card?

My card base is Pacific Point card stock 8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″.  Next I took a 5.25″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White card stock and used the retired word window punch to cut a slit in the layer for the fidget spinner to spin in. I used the Better Together stamp set and some primary color ink pads.  Pacific Point, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight and Garden Green to stamp the birthday hats.

For the fidget spinner itself, I took an actual fidget spinner and traced it and cut it out of Pacific Point card stock. (Honestly, that worked, but I’m too picky, so I downloaded a clip art file and cut it out on my Silhouette Cameo for the final card.)  I then punched out 3 1″ circles from Basic Black card stock and adhered them with liquid glue to the three points on the spinner.  Next I cut out 3 3/4″ circles from Basic Black card stock and adhered those over the top of the 1″ circles with a stampin’ dimensional. Finally, I punched out a 1/2″ circle and adhered it to the middle with liquid glue.

What makes the card spin is pennies.  I have one on either side of the top layer and they are attached in the middle with a stampin’ dimensional.

This spinner card was made by Queen B Creations.Next, I adhered the top layer, with the fidget spinner attached onto the card base using stampin’ dimensionals.  This makes sure there is room for the penny on the bottom to move freely allowing the fidget spinner to spin.

This spinner card was made by Queen B Creations.The inside of the card has a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White card stock. I stamped the coordinating sentiment from the same stamp set (Better Together) on the interior of the card in Pacific Point ink.  I stamped the hats (from the same set) in the upper left and lower right corner using Garden Green and Daffodil Delight ink. That layer is adhered to the card base with snail adhesive.

I hope my card inspires you to give you to give this spinner card idea a try!  I have provided a list of all Stampin’ Up! products used with links to purchase them from my store below.

Pals Pattern Party Hop

Hi Stampers.

Welcome to the July 2017 Pals Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us today. This month we’re having a Pattern Party! Hoppers will feature projects using their favorite Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper and coordinating embellishments. After all, color coordination is a Stampin’ Up! Strength.

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.

The Designer Series Paper that I chose to use was the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack.  This is a great 6″ x 6″ stack of various wood grain papers.  My husband is a carpenter / cabinet builder so I knew I could make use of various woods. They worked great for the Daisy Delight Thank You card.

Stampin' Up! Daisy Delight Bundle Thank You card by Queen B Creations for Pals Blog HopThis card has an Early Espresso card base (8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″).  I layered a 5.5″ x 4.25″ piece of Wood Texture DSP over the top of that.  I chose a rather dark wood to contrast my white daisies.  The daisies were punched out of Whisper White card stock with the ever popular daisy punch.  The center of the daisy was stamped with a small stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Delight stamp set in So Saffron ink onto So Saffron card stock and punched out with a 1/2″ circle punch.  The leaves behind the daisies was cut from Always Artichoke card stock with a framelit die from the Everyday Jars framelit set.Stampin' Up! Daisy Delight Bundle Thank You card by Queen B Creations for Pals Blog HopI layered two of the daisies over the top of each other offsetting the petals to get the whole daisy and then layered two half daisies over the top of each other (offsetting the petals) . I then used glue dots to adhere the leaves behind the flowers and the centers to the daisies. The bottom (half) daisy is adhered to the card with snail adhesive and the top (full) daisy is adhered with a stampin’ dimensional.Stampin' Up! Daisy Delight Bundle Thank You card by Queen B Creations for Pals Blog HopThe interior of the card is lined with a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White card stock with a 3/4″ strip of matching DSP adhered the the right side of the layer.  I stamped the sentiment “Thank You” in the center with Early Espresso ink.  I stamped the flower on the left side using Always Artichoke, So Saffron and Early Espresso inks.  I’m in love with how it turned out!

Please take a minute to mark your calendar for our next hop on August 9, 2017 when our projects will feature “cuts” from punches, dies, framelits, edgelits, or thinlits. Now hop along using the Blog Hop Line-up below. Thank you so much for hopping with the Stampin’ Pretty Pals today. See you on August 9th!
