Country Floral All Adorned

Hi Stampers. You are pretty much the BEST ever!  I have some great customers and I am so thankful for those of you who support me in a job that I love.  It means the world to me to be able to work from home doing what I love doing and earning money doing it! This card is for you!

Stampin' Up! Country Floral TIEF colored with Stampin' Blends handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This beautiful card starts with a Petal Pink card base – 11″ x 4-1/4″, scored at 5-1/2″.  This makes the card open from the bottom and flip up. Next i used the Country Floral Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and Big Shot to dry emboss a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White CS. Next, I colored the flowers ad leaves using Stampin’ Blends.

For the focal point and sentiment, I used the Layering Ovals Framelit Dies to cut ovals out of Petal Pink CS and Whisper White CS. The sentiment, from the All Adorned stamp set, was stamped onto the Whisper White oval using Crumb Cake ink. I adhered all these pieces to the card base using snail adhesive. The bow was made out of 3/8″ Crumb Cake Classic Weave ribbon and attached with glue dots.

For the inside of the card, I cut a Whisper White layer of CS – 4″ x 5-1/4″. The flower, from the Painted Seasons stamp set, was stamped in Petal Pink ink in the lower right corner. I got this idea for this card from a friend, Candy Ford. She made this card without coloring the flowers, it looked very pretty that way, too.

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.

Stampin' Up! Tea Together zfold handmade fancy fold card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

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).

I used the Tea Together Stamp set to stamp the Tea Pot, Teacup, large and small flower 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 so it wasn’t too shocking white.) These items were then cut out using the Tea Time Framelit dies (a level two SAB item).

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 aound 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 in Versamark ink onto a piece of Whisper White CS 5-1/4” x 3-1/2” and sprinkled on Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder and melted with heat tool. All that was left was to wrap 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.

Spirited Snowmen That Sparkle & Shine

Hi Stampers. Welcome to the Pals monthly blog hop. We’re so glad you’re here! December is time for glitz and bling with  “All that Sparkles & Shines”. Today we feature projects that sparkle or shine. Maybe even a little of both.

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! Spirited Snowmen and Farmhouse Christmas card in a box that sparkles and shines by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

When this blog hop asked for something that Sparkles and Shines, I knew this card had lots of both!  This is a custom card in a box that I made for a client.  This Blueberry Bushel card in a box was covered in Sparkle Glimmer Paper. She wanted it to say something specific and it was customized to her needs. (That’s why some of the words are blurred out). So, the three side panels were printed from  my computer onto Whisper White CS and sponged the edges with Blueberry Bushel ink using a sponge dauber. I then added some snowflakes that were die cut from Sparkle Glimmer Paper using the Big Shot and the Blizzards Thinlit Die. (The blizzard die, just happens to be on sale *wink wink*). A few clear faceted gems added just a little more sparkle and shine.

Stampin' Up! Spirited Snowmen and Farmhouse Christmas card in a box that sparkles and shines by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I stamped the snowmen from the Stampin’ Up! Spirited Snowmen stamp set in Memento Black ink and colored them with the Stampin’ Blends Markers. The snowmen were then fussy cut and adhered to the box using glue dots. I also added a few extra snowflakes around them.  The snowflakes are attached to clear acetate strips and the card with glue dots.  I stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment from the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set in Blueberry Bushel ink and cut it out with a circle from the Circles Framelit Dies. Behind that I have a piece of Pacific Point CS that was cut with a scalloped circle from the Circles Framelit Dies. The circles were attached to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

If you are looking for the measurements to all the pieces here, they can be found on this prior post. There you will find a PDF tutorial and a video.

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s hoppers. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created. Don’t forget to show us some love by commenting on our creations.

Hand Delivered Birthday Balloons

Hi Stampers.  I have a very different kind of fancy fold card for you today.  This card isn’t a fancy fold on the card base – it’s on the inside!  I’ve used the Stampin’ Up! Hostess Set – Hand Delivered.  This is a fun set in that you can swap out the top half of the girl.  She can hold a cake, books, a sign or the balloons as shown here. The balloons are perfect for using our Stampin’ Blends.  The Stampin’ Blends are alcohol markers and make the balloons look almost 3 dimensional. You can see an example of how to color these balloons on a Facebook live I did last week.  Click here to see it.  Don’t forget to “like” my page so you get to see future Facebook lives I do.

Stampin' Up! Hand Delivered Host stamp set birthday balloons card colored with Stampin' Blends by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts out with a Lovely Lipstick card base, 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″.  Next up is a 4′ x 5 1/4″ layer of the 2018-2020 in-colors DSP in Lovely Lipstick.  The top layer is a 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″ layer of Whisper White that I stamped onto before adhering to the card.  (Always best to stamp first, if you make an error you can flip it over and stamp again.)

Stampin' Up! Hand Delivered Host stamp set birthday balloons card colored with Stampin' Blends by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I stamped this Whisper White layer with stamps from the Host set – Hand Delivered.  (This is only available to purchase, for $13, with a party or an order over $150.) I stamped the skirt/legs, balloons and sentiment in Memento Black ink.  Next, I colored it with Stampin’ Blends and adhered it to the card front with sail adhesive.

The inside of the card has a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of Blueberry Bushel CS, scored at 2″, 4″, and 6″. I decorated the four panels with DSP from the 2018-2020 in-color 6″ x 6″ DSP. The Pinapple Punch was cut to 1 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ and adhered to the first panel. A 1 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ layer of Call Me Clover DSP was adhered to the third panel. Next I cut 2 panels of Whisper White CS – 1 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ for the second and fourth panel. A 1 3/4″ x 3/4″ piece of Grapefruit grove was adhered to the bottom of one of the Whisper White layers and adhered to the second panel inside the card. The last Whisper White layer has a 1/4″ x 3 3/4″ strip of Pineapple Punch DSP.

When I adhered the Blueberry Bushel layer to the inside of the card I folded it in an accordion fold and put adhesive on the first and fourth panels. You can see in the photo how the inside of the card looks.  It’s different and kinda cute.  What do you think?

If you are interested in purchasing these or any other Stampin’ Up! products and don’t already have a demonstrator, I’d love to spoil you! I have a special VIP Facebook group for all my customers where I share additional tips and more PDF tutorials.  I plan on adding in some fun games and giveaways soon, too!  You want to be part of it!

Hi Stampers. I’ve been looking for ways to expand my Stampin’ Up! business, find new items for my Etsy store AND have fun new ideas for my classes and blog.  The Pop on By bundle fit that bill amazingly! I designed this card with a Realtor in mind. Wouldn’t this be awesome for Realtors to give to new home owners when they close on a house?

Stampin' Up! Pop on By stamp set with Pop Up House thinlit dies make an awesome thank you card for a realtor to congratulation new homeowners on their new home. Card made by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts with a Balmy Blue card base, 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″. I cut a 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ strip of Smokey Slate CS and glued it along the bottom of the card front to resemble sidewalk. Using the house from the Pop on By stamp set, I stamped the house in Memento Black ink onto a 4″ x 3 1/4″ layer of Whisper White CS. The house is colored with the Stampin’ Blends Markers. The roof and door are Soft Suede, the house is Pool Party, the curtains are Soft Sea Foam and the inside window lighting is the light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers. I then used the paper snips to fussy cut out the house.

The inside of the card starts with a 5 1/4″ x 8 1/4″ layer of whisper White CS.  I scored in from each side about 1/4″ (note – do not go all the way across the card – it will put a score line across the front of your house).  I then placed the pop up house die onto that score line and run it through the Big Shot.  I used the same die to cut a 5″ x 5″ layer of Early Espresso CS and a 5″ x 5″ layer of Balmy Blue CS.  Then I fussy cut the Early Espresso to extract the roof and front door and glued them onto the white house layer.  I then fussy cut the Balmy Blue layer to extract the front of the house and glued it over the white house layer.

Using scraps of Whisper White CS I stamped the curtains three times in Memento Black ink, colored the with the Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends.  Then using the Pop Up House Thinlit dies again I used the coordinating framelit to cut them out.  The curtains were then glued to the Whisper White layer of the house on the back side of the house.  This layer is then carefully folded so it goes flat when the card closes.  I adhered the Whisper White layer to the card base with tear and tape adhesive. This will all make a lot more sense when you watch my video below:

Petal Palette Thank You

The-Remarkable-Inkbig-Blog-Hop

Hi Stampers. Happy Sunday!  I hope you have had a great weekend. Why do they take so long to get here and then go by so quickly?!?!  Today our blog hop is saying goodbye to the 2016-2018 In-Colors.

retiring 2016-2018 in colors from Stampin' Up!

The 2016-2018 In-Colors are:

  • Dapper Denim
  • Sweet Sugar Plum
  • Peekaboo Peach
  • Emerald Envy
  • and Flirty Flamingo (which is actually being added to the new color lineup in the revamp)

If you like any of these colors, hopefully you have stocked up, since the usually sell out rather quickly.  While you are stocking up on your favorite colors, there are a few more colors leaving us May 31st. (My son’s birthday – he turns 27 – Happy Birthday, Troy!)

Stampin' Up! colors that are retiring as of May 31, 2018 Stock up while you can!

Now, on to my card!  I chose to use Sweet Sugarplum as my retiring color.  I combined it with the Petal Palette stamp set and coordinating framelits (which is sticking around – although the “bundle” where you save 10% by buying them together goes away May 31st) and the Lots of Labels Framelit set which is retiring).

Stampin' Up! Petal Palette Thank You Roses handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts with a Sweet Sugarplum card base – 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″.  Next I used a 4″ x 5 1/4″ layer of Whisper White.  I stamped the background using my Stamparatus – if you don’t have one of these things – you want one!!  I place the stamp on their once and then just moved down the hinges and re-stamped to get this perfectly spaced background of Sweet Sugarplum dots. It was quick and easy!

Next up, I die cut a piece of Sweet Sugarplum piece of cardstock with the Lots of Labels framelit dies.  I then used the next size down and die cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the sentiment in Sweet Sugarplum ink. Those were adhered together and then to the card front with snail adhesive.  The bird and flowers were stamped in Memento Black ink, colored with the Stampin’ Blends markers and cut out with the coordinating framelits.  Those pieces were then attached to the card front with glue dots.

The inside of the card is lined with another 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Whisper White CS.  I used Old Olive ink to stamp the leaves in the lower left and upper right corners and then sentiment was stamped in the center with Sweet Sugarplum ink. This layer was then adhered to the inside with snail adhesive. I’m thrilled with how it came out – I hope you are too!

Follow along on the hope to see some other great ideas for the retiring in-colors, them come back here to order them from my online store!
