ICS Blog Hop Floating Frame Technique

Hi Stampers.  Welcome to my debut on the Inspire, Create & Share Blog Hop Team.  Today our theme is Beautiful Bundles! I chose to do a floating frame technique with the It Starts With Art bundle.

Stampin' Up! It Starts With Art floating frame technique tutorial instructions by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card is made using Glad Press & Seal.  I found mine to be a bit too sticky, so I patted it with my hands (letting the oils from my hands transfer to the press & seal) making it less sticky.

I started by stamping the items from the It Starts With Art stamp set in Memento Black ink onto Whisper White CS and coloring them with my Stampin’ Blends.  They were then cut out using the Arts & Crafts Dies and placed randomly on a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Whisper White CS.

Next, I placed the press & seal over the top of the pieces and trimmed off the excess with my paper snips.  Can you tell that my press & seal was decorated in Disney Frozen… LOL

Using a circle die from the Layering Circles Dies, I cut a circle from the middle of this layer (with the press & seal still in place).

After cutting the circle out, I gently pealed off the press & seal, keeping the stamped pieces on the plastic wrap. Next, I used ALOT of stampin’ dimensionals – regular size and mini to place a dimensional on every single piece of CS.

For card one, I used a Gorgeous Grape cardbase – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″.  The outside layer from the process above was placed onto a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Whisper White by exposing the sticky on the dimensionals and placing the CS very gently removing the press & seal.  I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap of Whisper White CS in Coastal Cabana ink and punched it out with the 1″ circle punch. Using the Stitched Shapes Dies, I die cut a slightly larger stitched circle from Highland Heather CS.  I mounted the two of these in the center of the circle in the card front.

For this card, I stamped onto a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Whisper White CS. For the buttons I just stamped directly onto the inside of the card base using Coastal Cabana, Highland Heather & Blushing Bride.  For the ink bottle I stamped with the Memento Black ink and colored with the Stampin’ Blends.

For card two, I used a Thick Whisper White CS – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″.  Onto this card front, I exposed the sticky on the dimensionals and attached the circle part of the process above and then very gently removed the press and seal.  I stamped the sentiment in Coastal Cabana ink onto a 3/4″ x 3-1/2″ strip of Whisper White CS. Next, I cut a strip of Blushing Bride CS 1″ x 3-1/2″, a strip of Coastal Cabana CS 3/4″ x 4″ and a piece of Highland Heather CS 1/2″ x 4-1/4.  I flagged the end of each of these strips using the Triple Banner Punch and then arranged and attached them to the lower part of the card front using snail adhesive.

Because this is a Whisper White cardbase, there was no need to line the inside.  For the buttons I just stamped directly onto the inside of the card base using Coastal Cabana, Highland Heather & Blushing Bride.  For the ink bottle I stamped with the Memento Black ink and colored with the Stampin’ Blends.

I did this technique with a different stamp set for one of my Facebook Lives on my FaceBook Page.  You can find that and many other great ideas on my YouTube channel.

This Little Piggy Barn Door Card

Hi Stampers.  Happy Monday!  It’s a new week.  Hopefully, this week is a little calmer at my house than it was last week.  Four of the grandkids and their parents from California were in and out too quickly the first half of the week.  That was wonderful, but way too short!!  The next day, our neighbors FIVE German Shephards dug under the 6′ fence, over a 3′ fence and pushed a wire fence out of the way to enter our backyard and try to come in our doggie door.  If you remember, I have two poodles.  Sophie is a 14 lb miniature poodle and Pixie is a 2-1/2 lb toy poodle.  Needless to say, we were all a bit spooked.  After about 3 hours of animal control, our landlord and multiple neighbors, they are safely tucked back into their own yard.  This week, I plan to be back to work!

Stampin' Up! This Little Piggy Interactive Barn Door card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Today, I’m showcasing an interactive Barn Door card with piggies.  This card uses the Barn Door stamp set / Sliding Door dies and the This Little Piggy stamp set. Isn’t it adorable?  The card base is Pool Party card stock – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. To give this card the “wood” look, I dry embossed a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Pool Party CS using the Pinewood Planks embossing folder.  But, before I did that, I used the die cut from the sliding door dies, to create the “tracks” that the  door slides back and forth in.

Stamping Tip: If you plan to die cut into or stamp onto a layer of cardstock that will be dry embossed (in most cases) you will want to do the die cutting and stamping BEFORE you dry emboss.  Die cutting first means that the die cutting process will not  flatten  out the embossing when you run it through the die cutting machine again. Stamping before you dry emboss means that the stamps and ink will make  full contact before the dry embossing makes it an uneven surface.

The dry embossed layer is attached using the foam strips above and below the “tracks”. A mini stampin’ dimensional is between two #6 washers. (I made a video using Cherry Cobbler and the Over the Moon stamp set.  Look for that FB Live on my Facebook Page or soon on my YouTube channel). I stamped onto a Whisper White piece of CS that is 4-1/4″ x 2-1/2″.  On the left side, I stamped the pig in Blushing Bride ink and colored it with my (retired) Pink Pirouette Stampin’ Blends. The grass is accented in light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend.  For the pigs hooves, I used the light Basic Black Stampin Blend and the dark Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blend.

Stampin' Up! This Little Piggy Interactive Barn Door card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

On the right side of the Whisper White layer, I stamped the “Loves You” sentiment in Blushing Bride ink and the kisses in Cherry Cobbler ink.  The door was stamped in Early Espresso ink onto a piece of Crumb Cake CS and die cut using the sliding door dies.  (Although, with all straight lines, it could be cut with scissors or trimmer). The “hardware” for the door is purely decorative and is die cut from Basic Black CS and adhered using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen.

The inside of the card has 5-1/4″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White CS onto which I stamped the pig and sentiment in Blushing Bride ink and colored with my Stampin’ Blends.  Isn’t it cute?!?  Who would you send this card too?

Bokeh Magical Mermaid

Hi Stampers. Today I’m dreaming about the next cruise to the Caribbean my husband and I will go on.  I am not sure when it’s going to be, but I’m feeling the pull.  I want to go to the land of clear waters and make like a magical mermaid!

Stampin' Up! Magical Mermaid Bokeh Dots Stampin' Blends handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card stars with a basic card base, 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″, in Bermuda Bay CS.  The next layer is a 5-1/4″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White CS.  Onto that layer, I stamped the center square using the Bokeh Dots stamp set. Over that I stamped the mermaid from the Magical Mermaid stamp set in Memento Black ink. I then colored the mermaid by using my (FABULOUS) Stampin’ Blends.  (If you have not purchased some of these yet, you are truly missing out!! They have become my favorite form of coloring!).

Stampin' Up! Magical Mermaid Bokeh Dots Stampin' Blends handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I colored the mermaids skin with the Ivory Stampin’ Blend, her hair with the Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends duo and the hair ribbon with the light Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blend. For the tail, I colored it using the Bermuda Bay and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends duos. For the exterior sentiment, I stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White CS in Bermuda Bay ink and cut it out using the Layering Circles Dies. Using the snail adhesive I adhered the Whisper White circle to a scalloped circle of Bermuda Bay CS cut using the same dies. The two circles were then adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Magical Mermaid Bokeh Dots Stampin' Blends handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The inside of this Magical Mermaid card is lined with another 5-1/4″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White CS.  Before adhering it, I stamped the sentiment in Bermuda Bay ink and the seaweed (hanging off the edges) in Old Olive ink. It’s then adhered to the inside of the card using Snail Adhesive. While this card came as a result of my wishing for vacation, it would make a great card to send to anyone who loves magical mermaids. You can create your own using the supplies listed below (with links to my online store).

Round one of my paper share was a success.  I’ve had a few more requests to do another one.  If you would like a 6″ x 6″ pieces of every DSP listed in the new 2019-2020 Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalog, check out the information on my paper share HERE.

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.

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

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).

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

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.

For you use, I have listed the supplies used in the making of this card below.  Each picture has a link to that item in my online store.  I’d love to be YOUR Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.

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.
