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.

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.

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!

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.

Peaceful Poppies Thank You Card

Hi Stampers. I am in love with the Peaceful Poppies suite. It is so pretty! It has bright and cheery colors along with beautiful flowers!  The sentiments in the Peaceful Moments stamp set cover a multitude of occasions. This fabulous suite just gives you so many opportunities!  Whether you have all or part of it – you can make a beautiful card. It’s easy to see why I used this suite for this months Customer Appreciation PDF.

Stampin' Up! Peaceful Poppies Suite - purchase at www.QueenBCreations.netclick the photo to enlarge

Today’s Project:

For today’s simple and pretty card,  I used the Peaceful Poppies DSP as my main part of the card.

Peaceful Poppies DSP Thank You card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card has a Poppy Parade card base followed by a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of the Designer Series Paper.  The DSP alone makes a beautiful card, I could have stopped there, but I added the thank you sentiment.

Peaceful Poppies DSP Thank You card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

A 1/2″ x 4″ piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock was placed across the bottom of the card front. I used the Painted Labels Dies to die cut the two labels – one from Gorgeous Grape and the other from Whisper White.  The Thank You sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.

Peaceful Poppies DSP Thank You card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For the inside of the card, using Gorgeous Grape ink, I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set. I also stamped poppy in either corner from the Painted Poppies stamp set using Gorgeous Grape ink.

Alternate Idea:

Don’t have the Painted Labels Dies and/or the Peaceful Moments stamp set?  No Problem – just use another stamp set and/or layering shape you have. (I used the Layering Oval Dies in this version.) Isn’t it awesome how simple card making can be when you have beautiful products to work with?!?

Good Morning Magnolia – Whitewash Technique

Hi Stampers.  This week has been a doozy!  It’s all good, but it’s making me feel more behind than usual. LOL Today I want to share with you the whitewash technique.

Good Morning Magnolia whitewash technique over heat embossing by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts with a crumb cake card base.  I heat embossed the magnolias from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set in gold directly onto the card base.

Next, I colored the magnolias using the Aqua Painter and the White Stamp Pad / Refill. A little Petal Pink was added to the center of the magnolias using a sponge dauber.

The Thanks is stamped in Mossy Meadow ink onto a Very Vanilla stitched oval. A Crumb Cake oval was cut using the Layering Oval Dies and the edges were sponged using a sponge dauber with Crumb Cake ink.

The inside is lined with a layer of Very Vanilla.  I stamped the small flower in the lower corner using Crumb Cake ink and the sentiment in Mossy Meadow ink.  I have included a full video tutorial complete with all instructions and measurements.  I hope you give it a try!

Harvest Hellos Apple Thanks

Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop Badge

Hi Stampers.  Welcome back for another blog hop with the Global Stamping Friends.  We were asked to create projects using our fabulous bundles.  I chose to use the Apple Builder from the 2019 Holiday Catalog.This punch is part of the Harvest Hellos bundle.  It’s a great set for back to school and also for Halloween.  The apple builder punch can be an apple or a pumpkin.

Stampin' Up! Harvest Hellos bundle Well Written dies Teacher thank you card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Today’s card is made using the Stampin’ Up! Apple Builder Punch. Doesn’t this adorable card make you think “summer picnic”.  I started with the idea of making a back to school thank you card for a teacher, but it could be used for any number of occasions.

Stampin’ Tip: When using a 6″ x 6″ piece of Designer Series Paper for a card front, I often cut it to 4″ x 5-1/4″.  This leaves me with a 2″ x 6″ piece of DSP.  These 2″ strips are perfect for this layout – it can easily be used as shown in this card layout.

Stampin' Up! Harvest Hellos bundle Well Written dies Teacher thank you card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The Well Written dies are a great collection of words commonly used on cards. I find that I reach for them often. Speaking of used often – Do you have the Stitched Shapes Dies?!?  I never even put those away!  I use them so often that they just sit next to my die cutting machine.

Do you have the fine-tip glue pen yet?  It works wonderfully for applying very small amounts of glue to delicate dies, such as this word “thanks”.

Stampin' Up! Harvest Hellos bundle Well Written dies Teacher thank you card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

You could use the Apple Builder Punch with colored papers (with or without stamping) or stamp on Whisper White CS (and them color with the blends).  I chose to just punch them out without even stamping.  Using Real Red ink, I sponged the edges of the apple. A score line down the middle of the leaf and few Glitter Enamel Dots and it was ready to go!

These are the Measurements:

  • Thick Whisper White CS – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″
  • Poppy Parade DSP – 2″ x 5-1/2″
  • Whisper White CS – approx. 3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″ (for the circle
  • Real Red CS – approx. 3″ x 3″ (for apple)
  • Early Espresso CS – scrap (for stem)
  • Granny Apply Green CS – approx. 1″ x 3″ (for the word thanks and the leaf)

Good Morning Magnolia Thanks

Hi Stampers. Happy Monday!  I have another Thank You card for you.  This card is made using the Good Morning Magnolia bundle and the Bricks & Mortar embossing folder.

Stampin' Up! Good Morning Magnolia handmade Thank You card DIY by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I started with a Petal Pink card base, 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″.  Next I dry embossed a 5-1/4″ x 4″ layer of Gray Granite CS using the Bricks & Mortar embossing folder.  I attached this to the card front using tear and tape adhesive. (I wanted something stronger than snail, due to the uneven surface.)

Stampin' Up! Good Morning Magnolia handmade Thank You card DIY by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For the sentiment, I stamped the word “Thanks” in Mossy Meadow ink onto a 5-1/4″ x 1-1/4″ piece of Very Vanilla CS.  I mounted that on top of a 5-1/4″ x 1-1/2″ piece of Mossy Meadow CS.  After attaching these two strips, i adhered them to the front of my card base.

Stampin' Up! Good Morning Magnolia handmade Thank You card DIY by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I stamped the large magnolia in Mossy Meadow ink onto Mossy Meadow CS and die cut it with the coordinating die.  Next, I stamped the same flower onto Very Vanilla CS using Gray Granite ink and fussy cut the flower out.  I colored the flower using the Petal Pink stampin’ blends.  The Very Vanilla flower was adhered to the Mossy Meadow flower using stampin’ dimensionals.  Then they were attached to the card front using snail adhesive.

Stampin' Up! Good Morning Magnolia handmade Thank You card DIY by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment and the scrolls onto a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Very Vanilla CS in Mossy Meadow ink.  This was adhered to the inside of the card using snail adhesive. Now, it’s ready to send to someone special!
