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.)

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.

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.

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!

Healing Hugs Thank You Card

Hi Stampers.  Happy Monday!  I love Monday’s because they remind me that I get to work from home doing something I love to do!  Therefore, Monday’s make me thankful, which is why today’s card says “Thanks”.  I shared a Get Well Card similar to this one last month.  You can check that out HERE.

Stampin' Up! Healing Hugs Thank You Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card has a Calypso Coral card base, 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. I dry embossed a 5-1/4″ x 4″ layer of Very Vanilla CS using the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder.  I love the look of this folder!  It makes a great background for so many different cards!  That layer was then attached to my card base using snail adhesive.

Next, I cut a 5-1/4″ x 1-3/4″ strip of Mossy Meadow CS and a 5-1/4″ x 1-1/2″ strip of Very Vanilla CS.  I stamped the word “Thanks” onto the right side of the Very Vanilla Strip using Mossy Meadow ink.  This particular word is from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set, but could be any number of our stamps. The strips were then adhered together and to the card front using snail adhesive.

Stampin' Up! Healing Hugs Thank You Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The focal point for this card is the BEAUTIFUL rose from the Healing Hugs stamp set. The rose is stamped onto Very Vanilla CS in Calypso Coral ink and the leaves were stamped in Mossy Meadow ink, also onto Very Vanilla CS. It’s so pretty!

Stampin’ Tip: A key to DistINKtive stamping is to have the proper amount of ink on your ink pad.  If the ink pad is too juicy, you will not get the true detail of the stamp.  If this happens to you, I urge you to rub your ink pad with the back of a spoon to push the ink down into the pad, making it less juicy.

This gorgeous stamp set is a patented design by Stampin’ Up! called DistINKtive stamping.  It’s a photo realistic look that is just fabulous!  You get lots of shading with a single stamp. Unfortunately, this set does not come with matching dies, but can be cut out using paper snips or a Brother Scan & Cut Machine.  After cutting out the rose and leaves, I attached them to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The inside of the card has a 5-1/4″ x 4″ layer of Very Vanilla CS.  I stamped the rose in Calypso Coral ink in the lower right corner before attaching it to the card, so it didn’t take up too much room.

Double Point Fold Thank You

Hi Stampers. Happy Monday! I hope you enjoy Monday’s.  It took me a while but I finally found a job that makes me LOVE Monday’s! I have all of you to thank for that, so “thanks”. This double point fold Thank You card is for you!  This is so far my favorite card using the Good Morning Magnolia bundle.

Stampin' Up! Good Morning Magnolia bundle double point fancy fold handmade thank you card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card started with a 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ piece of Mossy Meadow CS and two pieces of the Magnolia Lane DSP that are 4″ x 3″ each.  Those DSP pieces were folded according to this diagram.

Stampin' Up! Free As A Bird bundle Bird Ballad DSP double point fold handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I measured across two inches to find the middle of the 4″ side and two inches down each side to create the triangle.  The left over one inch flap is adhered to the back side of a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White CS before adhering to the Mossy Meadow base.

The Stitched Nested Label Dies were used to die cut the labels on the front.  I used Mossy Meadow, Petal Pink and Whisper White CS.  The word “thanks” from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set was stamped in Mossy Meadow ink. The three layers of the labels were adhered together and then adhered to the left side triangle of DSP using snail adhesive.

The flower on the front of the card was die cut from Whisper White CS.  I used each of the 3 dies twice. I sponged the edges of the petals with Sahara Sand ink and the middles with Petal Pink ink. Then the 3 layers are adhered together using mini glue dots.

For the flower center I used the larger die twice with Daffodil Delight CS and sponged the edges with Daffodil Delight ink. I used the smaller die twice with Early Espresso CS and sponged the edges with Early Espresso ink.  The leaves were die cut from Mossy Meadow CS and adhered to the bottom of the flower.  A gold faceted gem finished off the flower. I am thrilled with how it came out!!  Doing each layer of petals twice and adding the sponging just made a world of difference!  Thank you to Linda Dalke, a demo in Australia for the idea.

Thankful Dashing Deer

Hi Stampers. Today I’m making a Christmas Thank You card using the Stampin’ Up! Dashing Deer stamp set and the corner fold technique.  Thank you notes seem to have fallen to the wayside and I think they need to come back.  Lets make people feel special by sending them a handmade thank you card.

Stampin' Up! Dashing Deer Many Merry Thanks corner fold handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The Cherry Cobbler card base is 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″.  I then made the corner cuts at 3 1/4″ and folded it over.

Stampin' Up! Dashing Deer Many Merry Thanks corner fold handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

On the front of the card I used a 4 1/8″ x 5 5/8″ piece of Mossy Meadow card stock covered by a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Festive Farmhouse designer series paper. In the 3 1/2″ square I added a 3 1/2″ square of Mossy Meadow CS followed by a 3″ x 3″ layer of Very Vanilla CS.

I wrapped some Mossy Meadow ribbon around the card on the left inside and used glue dots to attach it on the inside of the card.  Then I made the bow and attached that on the front with glue dots.

I finished it off by adding 3 of the smallest Gold Faceted Gems. (Note: a design tip is to add these sorts of things in odd numbers.)

On the inside of the card is a 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″ layer of Mossy Meadow followed by a 5 1/4″ x 4″ layer of Very Vanilla CS.  I stamped the sentiment and smaller deer (from the Stampin’ Up! Dashing Deer stamp set) in Mossy Meadow ink.

Stampin' Up! Star of Light stamp set & Starlight Thinlit Dies with Thankful Thoughts Thank You card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Today’s card is super simple. I was brought up to believe that a hand written thank you note was a MUST. But, sometimes we are short on time.  This card is easy to mass produce!  It starts out with a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ card base, scored at 4 1/4″. Next is a 5 1/4″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the stardust from the Star of Light stamp set in Night of Navy ink, twice. The thank you sentiment is from the Thankful Thoughts stamp set and is also stamped in Night of Navy ink. The I then die-cut the star from the coordinating Starlight Thinlit dies and mounted it on stampin’ dimensionals.  I finished it off by adding a rhinestone to the middle of the star.  Like I said – super simple.

Now what are you doing still here?  Go check out that sale before all the good items are gone! LOL

Layering Alphabet Thanks Card

Hi Stampers. I am writing you from my hotel room in Miami as we get ready to board the cruise ship today for a week long cruise to the western Caribbean. (Royal Caribbean Allure of the Seas). We traded the cold of Idaho for the 85 degree weather in Miami and beyond. This makes me thankful for things in my life. One of those things is my job and it’s YOU that make that possible by supporting me in my business. So today’s thank you card is for you…

Stampin' Up! Layering Alphabet dies handmade thank you / thanks card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts with a thick Very Vanilla card base, 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″. I then used the big shot and the layering alphabet frame lit dies to cut the word “thanks” one letter at a time. The main die in this set that holds each letter has little notches on it to ensure that your letter is centered so each one is in the same spot, making them easy to line up on the card front.

(Note: if you watch the video below you will see that my die broke during my facebook live. Turns out it was defective and I had a new one from Stampin’ Up! in my mailbox in less than a week. I LOVE this company!!!)

Stampin' Up! Layering Alphabet dies handmade thank you / thanks card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations The colors I used represent “fall” to me. The colors left to right are: Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Old Olive, Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze. I then used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the letters to the card base, starting with the letter “s” and ending with the letter “t”.

Stampin' Up! Layering Alphabet dies handmade thank you / thanks card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B CreationsI chose to add a splash of color to the inside of the card by adhering a 4” x 5-1/4” layer of Cajun Craze CS. Then I stamped the sentiment, from the All Things Thanks stamp set, in Cajun Craze ink onto a 3-3/4” x 5” layer of Very Vanilla CS. After I made sure my stamping was good, I adhered the Very Vanilla CS over the Cajun Craze CS on the inside of card. (I always stamp before adhering in case I need to flip it over and try again – LOL).

Here is my Facebook Live showing how to use these dies:

I hope this post encourages you to thank someone in your life for supporting you with a handmade card, the way that I am thanking you for supporting me.

Have a great week!
