Tropical Oasis Shadow Box Card

Hi Stampers.  We made it!  It’s FRIDAY!!!  I have a bit of a flash back Friday for you today, in that a few products used in this card are retired.  Because you can use the fold for almost anything, I’m sharing it anyway.

Stampin' Up! Tropical Oasis Memories & More card Shadow Box Card by Lisa Ann Bernard

The front of this card is made up as usual.  This card started with a Poppy Parade card base 8″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″.  (The 3-3/4″ part is the inside of the card.) This is followed by a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of So Saffron CS.  The So Saffron layer was first dry embossed using the recently retired Basket Weave embossing folder. To give the card a pop of color, a 4″ x 2″ piece of colorful DSP is added to the front of the card. The sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set and is stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White in Poppy Parade ink.

Stampin’ Tip: Did you know that you can layer two punches of different shapes together?  In this example, I have layered the Label Me Fancy Label Punch over the Everyday Label Punch.

What makes this card different is the “shadow box” on the inside.  The shadow box is created with a piece of Whisper White CS 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 3-3/4″, 4-1/4″, 8″.  Use the layering circles die to cut a scalloped circle out of the 9″ x 5-1/2″ piece of Whisper White, between the 4-1/4 and 8″ score lines.  This “shadow box” is adhered to the interior of the card by attaching the first 3-3/4″ section to the interior of the card using Stampin’ Seal+.  The 1/2″ on the opposite side is then attached to the inside of the front cover using Stampin’ Seal+.

The beach scene is is created using a 2″ x 3-3/4″ of Crumb Cake CS that was torn on the top and glued to the bottom of the card interior – to look like sand. My sun was made using the retired Starburst Punch, but you can use the layering circles dies or the 2-1/4″ circle punch.  I punched the circle out of Daffodil Delight CS and then cut it into quarters using paper snips.  The “sun” was then glued to the upper left corner using multipurpose liquid glue.  The palm trees from the Timeless Tropical stamp set is inked using Stampin’ Write Markers and stamped onto Whisper White CS.  The palm trees were then die cut using the In The Tropics Dies and adhered to the inside of the card (as shown in photo) using multipurpose liquid glue.

The inside of the “shadow box” can be decorated using stamps or, as in this case, use a Memories & More Card pack.  They are not just for Scrapbooking, they make quick and easy cards, too!

Jar of Flowers Shaker Card

Hi Stampers.  Happy Labor Day!  Hopefully, you have today off and have something fun planned. Today’s Jar of Flowers shaker card is from a Facebook Live I did back in late May.  I’m finally getting around to editing my Facebook Live videos and putting them on YouTube.  (Please tell me that you are subscribed to my YouTube channel.)

Stampin' Up! Jar of Flowers mason jar shaker dome card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I used two of the 2020-2022 In-Colors for my Jar of Flowers card.  The card base is Bumblebee and the next layer is Cinnamon Cider.  For my neutral color, I chose Very Vanilla CS.

Stampin' Up! Jar of Flowers mason jar shaker dome card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I just love the new Mason Jar Shaker Domes that go with this Jar of Flowers bundle.  They look great on this card.  I backed it with a piece of Seaside Spray CS, that I stamped the stems onto.  The flowers and stems were all colored using the Stampin’ Blends.  Inside the shake are some seed beads I happened to have in my office.

I turned this Jar of Flowers card into a “Thank You” card by adding the “thanks” sentiment.  The card is finished off by stamping the flowers in the corner and coloring with the Stampin’ Blends to match the front of the card.

So Sentimental Thank You

Hi Stampers. I just can’t thank you enough for all your support of my business!  I LOVE my job!

Stampin' Up! So Sentimental fun fold thank you card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Today’s Z-fold card starts with a thick Very Vanilla card base 11″ x 4-1/4″, scored at 5-1/2″ & 2-1/2″.  I folded the card in half at the 5-1/2″ score line and then folded the opposite way at the 2-1/2″ score line.  This made them both on the left side.

Stampin' Up! So Sentimental fun fold thank you card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I used some CS and some older DSP to decorate the two layers and then used my Stitched So Sweetly dies to cut a Blushing Bride scalloped rectangle and a Very Vanilla shape.  The sentiment (from So Sentimental) is stamped onto the Very Vanilla shape using Early Espresso ink and then I added a few self sticking sequins left over from a Paper Pumpkin kit.

Inside the card reads “Thanks for Your Order” (from a retired demo only stamp set).  You each deserve this card as a thank you for your support!

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.

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created!

Thoughtful Blooms Thank You

Hi Stampers. In this strange world that we are currently living in, I am thankful for my crafting AND that’s it’s my full-time job. I’m thanking you today with some Thoughtful Blooms. Alot of people are always telling me how creative I am and that they could never do that.  Well, that’s not true.  There are complicated cards, but there are also very simple cards you can make.  I even put some of them together as kits – with printed instructions, video tutorials, pre-cut materials and everything! (see my “online classes“)  Today is one of those simple cards.

Stampin' Up! Thoughtful Blooms Thank You card saleabration 2020 by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card base is Mango Melody.  It’s not a color I have used often, but I sure like the brightness considering what’s happening around us.  The leaves were stamped onto the Whisper White layer before embossing it with the Brick & Mortar 3D embossing folder.

Stampin' Up! Thoughtful Blooms Thank You card saleabration 2020 by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Those cute little thoughtful blooms flowers are stamped and then punched out and attached with a stampin’ dimensional, as was the sentiment.  A little more stamping of those thoughtful blooms on the envelope flap and you have some extra added fun!

Stampin' Up! Thoughtful Blooms Thank You card saleabration 2020 by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Inside the card is another Whisper White layer with some stamping done in Mango Melody ink. I love how bright and cheery it is – hopefully the recipient things so too.

Honey Bee Thank You

Hi Stampers. Happy Monday!  I’m back with another Honey Bee card!  Do you love Monday’s?  I do!  I have the BEST JOB EVER and I get a fresh start and a burst of energy each and every Monday.  I’m always looking for people who want to do a job they love and join my Creative Royalty team.  Our team has hobby and business demos on it – all a welcome – no strings attached!

Stampin' Up! Honey Bee Bundle Detailed Bee Dies handmade thank you card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Today’s card is similar to last Friday’s card in that I used the Honey Bee bundle. Instead of a shaker card, this is a regular card using lots of layers. The sentiment is heat embossed in Gold and a few enamel dots were added to make it “pop” and draw your eye to it.

Stampin' Up! Honey Bee Bundle Detailed Bee Dies handmade thank you card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I wanted a richer look for this card, so I used a Basic Black card base, followed by layers of Goil Foil Paper and the Golden Honey Specialty DSP.  I love this DSP and it was FREE!  Apparently, alot of other people loved it too, because we have run out, twice.  Sale-A-Bration items are always “while supplies last” so if you see something you love – it’s best to get yours early! The hive is popped up on dimensionals and swarming with honey bees.

Stampin’ Tip:  To save you money on your stampin’ supplies, I suggest die cutting shapes out of the center of the Gold Foil Paper.  In this example, you could cut the larger gold layer, then die cut the next gold layer out of the middle of the first one.  You could then die cut the honeycomb die cuts out of the middle of the that smaller layer. Once you cover it up with the DSP layer, you won’t see any voids in the foil paper. While it looks like alot of foil paper was used but, there is only one 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece and it’s all cut from that. It also helps keep the weight low, so it could save you on postage, too.

Stampin' Up! Honey Bee Bundle Detailed Bee Dies handmade thank you card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Inside the card, in addition to stamping the sentiment and the honey bee, I have added a strip of DSP and a few of the hexagons that fell out of the honeycomb die cut used on the front of the card.
