How To Make A Card Light Up With Chibitronics

Hi Stampers. Have you seen those Chibitronics cards that light up?  I’ve been wanting to try to make one for what feels like forever.  Well, I finally did it!  I ordered the electronics from Amazon and used them to light up the headlights on the truck from the Pedal to the Medal stamp set.  Today, I am showcasing the card I made using this lighthouse.

I combined two stamp sets to make this card – Sailing Home and High Tide.  The two sets work well together and gave me the look I was going for.

Stampin’ Tip: To make the “sand” layer look more realistic, I started by tearing the Crumb Cake layer and sponging some Crumb Cake ink onto it.

I started with the Night of Navy card base and then adhered the Chibitronics electronics to the front of the card base.  The battery is housed in a piece of Whisper White CS – 2″ x 1″.  Adhesive foam strips were used to create a spot for the battery and then went all around the card front to hold up the Seaside Spray layer.

The sentiment was placed over the battery and when you press it the light at the top of the lighthouse light up.

Here is a close up of the Chibitronics light.

Inside the card, I just stamped some water and added the die cut boat.  I actually had a smudge on the card and used Mango Melody ink to cover up the smudge – and later changed it to Mango Melody CS.  Getting to the very end of the card and making a smudge can be frustrating, so I had to find a solution to cover it up.  What do you think?

Painted Harvest Wedding Card-in-a-Box

Hi Stampers. Today’s card is a (Painted Harvest) card-in-a-box wedding card I made almost a year ago.  If you want measurements, etc, you can find the video tutorial on this prior post.

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest Card in a box wedding card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

My husband and I attended a wedding last fall that had a sunflower theme.  I decided to make the card to coordinate with the wedding theme.

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest Card in a box wedding card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts with a Soft Suede card base (see video mentioned above for the measurements), followed by a layer of Crushed Curry.

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest Card in a box wedding card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The Painted Harvest stamp set was the perfect fit for the theme.  To keep it country, I used Very Vanilla layers to stamp onto.

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest Card in a box wedding card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Gold stampin’ emboss powder and Versamark ink helped make the sentiments on each panel stand out.  All of the Very Vanilla layers also had sunflowers (from the Painted Harvest stamp set) stamped in Daffodil Delight and Crushed Curry ink.  The center of each sunflower is stamped in Soft Suede ink wile the leaves were all stamped in Garden Green ink.

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest Card in a box wedding card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Inside the box are a Sunflower (stamped from the Painted Harvest stamp set and cut out using my Brother Scan-n-Cut) and leaves punched out using the leaf punch.  There are also 3 balloons punched out using Soft Suede, Crushed Curry and Garden Green CS and the Balloon Bouquet punch.  A gold gel pen was used to make the reflection on each balloon.

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest Card in a box wedding card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

To represent the bride and groom, I used the heart punch.  The bride heart is cut from Sparkle Glimmer Paper, with a few pearl basic jewels to make her necklace.  For the Groom is punched from Very Vanilla CS, with a second heart cut in Soft Suede with a V cut from the front and glued over the Very Vanilla heart.  This combination makes this heart look like a groom in a suit.  Since it was a country wedding, I hand cut what is supposed to be a bolo tie and made shirt buttons using a Soft Suede Stampin’ Write marker.

I love card-in-a-box cards.  They fold flat to put into an envelope, but then pop up to make a great display piece.

Ink Blending

Hi Stampers.  When I look around the internet at card making, samples it seems like ink blending is all the rage.  Most card makes use another brand of ink, but I knew I had to try ink blending with our Stampin’ Up! inks.  Sure enough – it worked great! (The samples could be better, I know.  But, this is my first ever try at it.)

Stampin' Up! Sweet Silhouette Scenes handmade ink blending card made by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I started with a Balmy Blue card base and a layer of Whisper White CS. The ink blending brushes, I purchases on Amazon. For the inks, I chose: Seaside Spray, Balmy Blue and a touch of Night of Navy for the sky.  The grass was done using: Granny Apple Green, Pear Pizzaz and a touch of Garden Green inks.

Stampin’ Tip: It was important to start the brush off the card stock.  I used grid paper and started making small circles on the grid paper and then moving into the card stock.

Stampin' Up! Sweet Silhouette Scenes handmade ink blending card made by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

To keep the focal point on the ink blending, I chose a very simple silhouette.  The stamp of the girl on a swing is from the Silhouette Scenes stamp set and memento black ink.  For the tree, I used Basic Black CS and the Sweet Silhouette dies.

Stampin’ Tip: To get the girl on the swing good and dark, I used the Stamparatus so that I could stamp her multiple times, ensuring I got a nice dark, solid image.

Stampin' Up! Sweet Silhouette Scenes handmade ink blending card made by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For the interior of the card, I continued with the Silhouette Scenes stamp set and the Stamparatus.  I also used the brushes to again add a little color to the top and bottom of the inside layer, leaving the middle white. Overall, I really like the effect and am super happy I could use my Stampin’ Up! inks.  More practice should be forthcoming.  🙂

Honey Bee Peek a Boo – Pals Blog Hop

Hi Stampers

Hello, welcome to the Pals Blog Hop! This month our theme is “Goodbye to January-June Mini and 2019-2020 Annual Catalogs and Hello to 2020-2021 Annual Catalog” where the Design Team is showcasing their favorites from the retiring catalogs or products in the new catalog! You’ll find the full line-up below to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Stampin' Up! Honey Bee Thank You Peek-a-boo technique card with video by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Today I am sharing with you a great bundle that is retiring soon.  The Honey Bee bundle was super popular and went on back order quickly, so it’s a bummer it’s leaving.  I also used the layering circles to make the peek-a-boo hole and the frame.  Smaller punches framed the sentiment perfectly.

Stampin' Up! Honey Bee Thank You Peek-a-boo technique card with video by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I love how the layers work on this fun fold card.  It has a bit of a stacked look on the top, as you can see in the photo here. The honey bees and the inside sentiment were stamped in Memento Black ink. Stampin’ Write Markers were used to ink the stamp for the flower and to color the body of the honey bees.

Stampin' Up! Honey Bee Thank You Peek-a-boo technique card with video by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The honey bee hive used in the inside design shows though the peek-a-boo hole and also works great with the added elements on the inside of the card. If you need further instruction, I have provided a video tutorial with all the details below.  The list of all products used (with links to my store) are also provided below.

First Frost Bouquet

Hi Stampers. Today’s card features the First Frost Bundle, which is another very pretty set retiring at the end of this month.  🙁

Stampin' Up! First Frost Frosted Bouquet Winter card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts with a Gorgeous Grape card base and then a layer of watercolor paper.  I used Balmy Blue ink and the Aqua Painter to create this watercolor wash technique for the background.  Next, I stamped a few of the greenery and then did lots of layering of die-cuts over the top of that.

Stampin' Up! First Frost Frosted Bouquet Winter card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The sentiment, from First Frost, was stamped in Gorgeous Grape ink onto a stitched oval and backed with a Gorgeous Grape scalloped oval.  I chose to do springs in Balmy Blue and Gorgeous Grape CS to pop out form behind the ovals.

All layers were placed over a strip of 3/8″ silver edge ribbon using stampin’ dimensionals.  Finally I added the flowers to the front of the card too.  The First Frost flowers were stamped in Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather inks and die cut using the coordinating, Frosted Bouquet, dies.

Social Distancing Giraffes

Hi Stampers, I’m back today with another quarantine / social distancing card.  Ten days ago I shared with you my little quarantined piggy who stayed home – see that post by clicking here.  Today, I have two giraffes social distancing by staying six feet apart.  I used the Back on Your Feet stamp set.  This set only have one giraffe facing to the left.  I used the stamparatus, to do the “mirror stamp technique” to make the second giraffe face the other direction.

Stampin' Up! Back On Your Feet social distancing giraffes mirror stamping technique by Lisa Ann Bernard

The card base is Crushed Curry followed by a layer of Basic Black. I stamped onto Whisper White CS and colored the social distancing giraffes using the Stampin’ Blends.

Stampin' Up! Back On Your Feet social distancing giraffes mirror stamping technique by Lisa Ann Bernard

Seaside Spray ink was sponged above them as a sky and Old Olive ink was sponged below them to be grass.  I used a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker to draw the arrows and the 6′ between the two giraffes.

Stampin' Up! Back On Your Feet social distancing giraffes mirror stamping technique by Lisa Ann Bernard

This cute sentiment “This is knot good” came in the Back on Your Feet stamp set and coordinates with the giraffe (since it has a knot in it’s neck). The sentiment was stamped in Soft Suede ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS and punched out using a 1-3/8″ scallop circle punch and mounted on a piece of Soft Suede CS punched out using the 1-1/2″ circle punch. <—– I am so sad these punches (along with many others) are retiring!

Inside the card is a layer of Whisper White that has been sponged to match the front of the card.

Stampin' Up! Back On Your Feet social distancing giraffes mirror stamping technique by Lisa Ann Bernard

The sentiment “Miss You Friend” is made using three stamps from the Well Said stamp set.  In the video below you can see how I die cut the CS (using the Ornate Frames Dies) and used a negative template to hold the die cut and stamp the sentiment using the Stamparatus.  Doing this allowed me to mount the stamps nice and straight, using the grid lines, ONCE and stamp many of these in succession to use on a bunch of cards I made.

Finally, I added that sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals, so that it could be used as the stopper for my easel card.  You can find full direction and measurements for my social distancing giraffes by watching the video below and all supplies can be purchased from my online store.
