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?

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).

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!

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.

2018 Stampin' Up! Sale-a-braton Party Pandas Handmade Eclipse Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts out with a Pacific Point card base, 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″, followed by a 5-1/4″ x 4″ layer of Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper (DSP). The Party Pandas were stamped onto a 4-1/4″ x 3″ layer of Whisper White card stock. They were then colored with the Stampin’ Blends markers.  The number “2018” die cut out of the middle of that layer.

The Whisper White layer – minus the numbers – was mounted onto a 4-3/8″ x  3-1/8″ layer of Pool Party CS with multi-purpose glue.  Next mini stampin’ dimensionals were added to the back of the numbers. The numbers were then inserted into the holes they were cut from. The inserts to the “0” and the “8” were adhered into their spaces with multi-purpose glue.

Stampin’ Blends Are Here!

Stampin' Up! Stampin' Blend Markers new alcohol based markers for coloring

Hi Stampers.

I’m excited to announce that TODAY is the day!  Today is the day that customers can order the fabulous Stampin’ Blends!  As a demo, I was able to order them a while back and I can’t begin to tell you how fabulous they are!  These new, high quality, alcohol markers will help you take your shaded coloring to the next level.  The are awesome!

This is the first card I made with them.  This shows how super easy they are.  I am not good at coloring, trust me.  That’s why I like stamping!  But, if I can do this good on my first try – it’s only gonna get better from here!

This card starts with a Chocolate Chip card base, 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″.  I used the stamp set Country Livin’ and colored it in with the new alcohol markers. The truck was stamped onto a 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″ layer of Whisper White card stock using Memento Black ink. I used the Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends for the truck, Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends for the wood, Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends for the gas can, Old Olive Stampin’ Blends for the grass and then Smokey Slate Stampin’ Blends for the tires and bumper.

To add a little bit of color to the windows and the headlights, I used just a little bit of the light Smokey Slate Stampin’ Blend marker and the color lifter.  I wrapped some linen thread around the Whisper White layer and mounted it onto a 5″ x 3 3/4″ layer of Marina Mist card stock with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The Marina Mist layer was then adhered to the card base with snail adhesive.

For the inside of the card, I used a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White card stock and stamped the boots in Memento Black ink and colored them with the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends and used the Old Olive Stampin’ Blends to add a little grass under them.

I’m soooo happy with these new alcohol markers and I know you will be too!  I’ve included a supply list with links to my online store so that you can purchase them for yourself.  You won’t regret it!
