ICS Blog Hop Floating Frame Technique

Hi Stampers.  Welcome to my debut on the Inspire, Create & Share Blog Hop Team.  Today our theme is Beautiful Bundles! I chose to do a floating frame technique with the It Starts With Art bundle.

Stampin' Up! It Starts With Art floating frame technique tutorial instructions by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card is made using Glad Press & Seal.  I found mine to be a bit too sticky, so I patted it with my hands (letting the oils from my hands transfer to the press & seal) making it less sticky.

I started by stamping the items from the It Starts With Art stamp set in Memento Black ink onto Whisper White CS and coloring them with my Stampin’ Blends.  They were then cut out using the Arts & Crafts Dies and placed randomly on a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Whisper White CS.

Next, I placed the press & seal over the top of the pieces and trimmed off the excess with my paper snips.  Can you tell that my press & seal was decorated in Disney Frozen… LOL

Using a circle die from the Layering Circles Dies, I cut a circle from the middle of this layer (with the press & seal still in place).

After cutting the circle out, I gently pealed off the press & seal, keeping the stamped pieces on the plastic wrap. Next, I used ALOT of stampin’ dimensionals – regular size and mini to place a dimensional on every single piece of CS.

For card one, I used a Gorgeous Grape cardbase – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″.  The outside layer from the process above was placed onto a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Whisper White by exposing the sticky on the dimensionals and placing the CS very gently removing the press & seal.  I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap of Whisper White CS in Coastal Cabana ink and punched it out with the 1″ circle punch. Using the Stitched Shapes Dies, I die cut a slightly larger stitched circle from Highland Heather CS.  I mounted the two of these in the center of the circle in the card front.

For this card, I stamped onto a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Whisper White CS. For the buttons I just stamped directly onto the inside of the card base using Coastal Cabana, Highland Heather & Blushing Bride.  For the ink bottle I stamped with the Memento Black ink and colored with the Stampin’ Blends.

For card two, I used a Thick Whisper White CS – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″.  Onto this card front, I exposed the sticky on the dimensionals and attached the circle part of the process above and then very gently removed the press and seal.  I stamped the sentiment in Coastal Cabana ink onto a 3/4″ x 3-1/2″ strip of Whisper White CS. Next, I cut a strip of Blushing Bride CS 1″ x 3-1/2″, a strip of Coastal Cabana CS 3/4″ x 4″ and a piece of Highland Heather CS 1/2″ x 4-1/4.  I flagged the end of each of these strips using the Triple Banner Punch and then arranged and attached them to the lower part of the card front using snail adhesive.

Because this is a Whisper White cardbase, there was no need to line the inside.  For the buttons I just stamped directly onto the inside of the card base using Coastal Cabana, Highland Heather & Blushing Bride.  For the ink bottle I stamped with the Memento Black ink and colored with the Stampin’ Blends.

I did this technique with a different stamp set for one of my Facebook Lives on my FaceBook Page.  You can find that and many other great ideas on my YouTube channel.

Tombow Liquid Glue Holder

Hi Stampers.  Do you love Tombow liquid glue but not not that it gets harder to use as the bottle gets closer to empty?  This small holder works great for keeping the bottles upright so the glue stays at the small end of the tube!  It’s easy to make one.  I give some written directions in this post, but I encourage you to watch my video below to see me make it.

Stampin' Up! Tombow Liquid Glue Holder by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I started with a 8-1/2″ x 7-3/4″ piece of Blackberry Bliss CS. On the long size I scored at 1/2″, 2-1/2″, 4-1/2″ and 6-1/2″.  The short side was scored at 1-1/2″ and 6-1/4″.  I then used my paper snips to cut in from the sides along the score line, up to the crossing score line to create the flaps and cut off the small 1/2″ parts and wedged the flaps (see video). Be sure to burnish all the score lines with a bone folder. Before assembling the box, I used the smallest scalloped circle from the Layering Circles Dies to cut 3 circles (over the top of the circles that were placed on my CS – see tip below).

Stampin’ Tip: I used the one inch circle punch to cut 3 circles from scraps of CS and placed them on the CS where I want the holes to be cut and attached them with a bit of snail adhesive. This allows me to place them evenly and be sure the holes will be in the right spots before cutting them. 

Stampin' Up! Tombow Liquid Glue Holder by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

You can choose to round the corners with the detailed trio punch before assembling the box.  I used tear and tape adhesive to connect the long side of the box and Tombow liquid glue to secure the end flaps. To pretty it up, I used some Designer Series Paper 4-5/8″ x 1-7/8″ on the front of the box. I hope this project helps solve a frustration in your craft room – remember crafting is supposed to be STRESS FREE!

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  Please take a moment to leave me a comment below.  I love to hear from you!

Valentine’s Day Boozy Box

Hi Stampers.  Today I have a fun “Boozy Box” that was designed by fellow demo Erica Cerwin.  She shared how to do this last October using the Alpine Adventure bundle and the Festive Farmhouse plaid DSP.  I chose to change up her winter ski lodge style to a more Valentine’s Day theme.  I am thrilled with how it came out and gave away several of these as gifts.  The people I gave them to loved them!

Stampin' Up! Valentines Hot Chocolate Boozy Box By Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For the base of this box, I used a piece of Blushing Bride CS 7-3/4″ x 11″. On the long side, I scored this at 1/2″, 2-1/4″, 4-1/4″ and 6″.   The short side was scored at 1-3/4″ and 6″. I used the Simply Scored score board because I felt that it gave me the most accurate measurements.  It can be done with the Stampin’ Trimmer, but you need to be careful on placement.

Next, I punched out a 1-3/8″ circle and two 1″ circles from scrap paper. I used these circles to figure out placement for the holes to hold the test tubes and the bottle. I attached them where I wanted them with a tad of snail adhesive and then punched over them. This is where the Hot Chocolate Mix, tiny Marshmallows and Baileys Irish Cream sample will be inserted.  (I purchased the test tubes at our local craft store in the jewelry bead department).

Next, I decorated the box. For the back, I cut a piece of Whisper White CS 4-1/8″ x 3″ and a piece of Tropical Escape DSP 4″ x 2-7/8″.  Then for the bottom front, I cut a piece of Whisper White CS 4-1/8″ x 1-7/8″ and a piece of Tropical Escape DSP 4″ x 1-3/4″.  I wrapped a piece of Whisper White 3/8″ Metallic Edge Ribbon around the bottom of the box and tied a bow on the right side of the front.

Stampin' Up! Valentines Hot Chocolate Boozy Box By Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For the sentiments, I used the Forever Lovely stamp set.  The “Happy Valentines Day” is stamped on a strip of Whisper White CS using Blushing Bride ink.  That is layered on top of a strip of DSP and a strip of Blushing Bride CS.  All three layers were flagged on the end using the Banner Triple Punch.  The “Love You” is stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White CS and die cut out using the Layering Circles Dies. I also used the Layering Circles Dies to die cut the scalloped circle in Blushing Bride CS.  The white circle is adhered to the pink circle using a Stampin’ Dimensional. Glue dots were used to adhere both sentiment to the front of the box.  Just too cute!

Tea Together Z-fold Card

Hi Stampers. Two of the things I love about Stampin’ Up! is making “fancy fold” cards and a good sale!  Sale-a-bration in an annual event and is the biggest sale of the year! We have two levels – you earn a level 1 gift for each $50 you spend and a level 2 gift for each $100 you spend.  One of the level two gift is this awesome set of framelits that match the Tea Together stamp set from the 2019 Occasions Catalog.

Stampin' Up! Tea Together zfold handmade fancy fold card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The z fold card is one that has been around for a while and I’ve seen similar cards online and this is my own version of it.  The card base is a 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ piece of Mossy Meadow CS. Next, I took piece of Blushing Bride CS 11” x 5 ½” and scored it at 3 ½” and 7”. I then used the scallop edgelit from the Seasonal Layers thinlits dies on the right side of the card base. On card front, I adhered a 5-1/4” x 3-1/4” layer of the Petal Promenade DSP. I adhered another 5-1/4” x 3-1/4” piece of the Petal Promenade DSP (the same paper, other side).

Stampin' Up! Tea Together zfold handmade fancy fold card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I used the Tea Together Stamp set to stamp the Tea Pot, Teacup, large and small flower in Versamark ink onto scraps of Whisper White CS. Next, I applied Silver Stampin’ emboss powder and melted with the heat tool. I colored these using the Stampin’ Blends markers. (Note: I used the light Petal Pink to just highlight a little on the teacup so it wasn’t too shocking white.) These items were then cut out using the Tea Time Framelit dies (a level two SAB item).

I attached the Tea Pot to the front of the card base using snail adhesive and the Teacup to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The ribbon was wrapped aound the card and adhered to the Tea Pot using a mini glue dot and a small flower was adhered over that using a Stampin’ Dimensional.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink onto a piece of Whisper White CS 5-1/4” x 3-1/2” and sprinkled on Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder and melted with heat tool. All that was left was to wrap the ribbon around the card and tie a bow on the right side.  I’m thrilled with how it came out.

I shared how to make this in my Facebook Live on December 31st on my Facebook Page.  It was then edited and uploaded to my YouTube channel.  Here is the YouTube video.

Seasonal Layers Hanging Heart

Hi Stampers. Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching and I have another quick and easy card.  I saw this somewhere online… I’ve been searching today and can’t find it again. So, I apologize to the demo who designed it, I can’t find your name to give you credit.  I just love this card.  I was watching TV with my husband one night and surfing the web (probably Pinterest) and saw it. During a commercial I ran downstairs to my studio and created it quickly. 

Stampin' Up! Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies hanging heart in a tree Valentine's Day card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creawtions

The card starts with Smoky Slate card base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. Next, is a 5-3/8″ x 4-18″ layer of Cherry Cobbler CS followed by a 5-1/4″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White CS. The Whisper White layer has been sponged with Balmy Blue ink with a stamping sponge.

Stampin' Up! Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies hanging heart in a tree Valentine's Day card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creawtions

The tree branch is die cut from Wood Textures DSP using a die from the Seasonal Layers thinlits dies. I used a heart die from the Be Mine Stitched framelits dies. To create the look of fallen snow, I used a pallete knife to adhere some Shimmery White Embossing Paste to the top of the heart.  It’s best to let the embossing paste dry several hours to dry completely before adhering to the card.

The branch was adhered to the card front using fine-tip liquid glue, I paced a small piece of Whisper White Bakers Twine behind the branch, so it looked like it was hanging from the tree. Next, I adhered the heart at the other end of the Whisper White Bakers Twine. I made a small bow from the Whisper White Bakers Twine and glued it to the center of the Bakers Twine between the branch and heart.

The inside of the card is lined with a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White CS. Onto that layer, I stamped the falling hearts and sentiments from the Forever Lovely stamp set.

I actually shared this card during my Facebook Live on my Facebook Page on December 31, 2018.  An edited version of this Facebook Live is on my YouTube channel. Here is the YouTube video:

Dashing Deer Fancy Fold Card

Hi Stampers.

 

Stampin' Up! Dashing Deer Joyous Noel DSP fancy fold Christmas card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For today’s card I am once again using this new fold I recently discovered. It’s just too fun and a great way to use our gorgeous Designer Series Papers! This card starts with a Soft Suede card base that is 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″. The Joyous Noel DSP layer is 8″ x 4″, scored at 4″ and 2″ and folded in an “N”.

Stampin' Up! Dashing Deer Joyous Noel DSP fancy fold Christmas card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The top of the card has a 3″ x 4-1/4″ layer of Soft Suede CS, a 2-7/8″ x 4-1/8″ layer of crumb cake and 2-3/4″ x 4″ Very Vanilla CS. Onto the Very Vanilla layer, I stamped the tree in from the Stampin’ Up Winter Woods stamp set in Shaded Spruce ink and sponges some Crumb Cake ink to simulate ground.

Using the deer from the Dashing Deer stamp set, I inked up the deer’s body with Soft Suede ink and the antlers I inked with a Soft Suede marker. I then cut out the deer with the coordinating Detailed Deer Thinlit dies and attached it to the Very Vanilla layer with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
