Sponged Background Technique

Hi Stampers – today’s card is one I did for a Facebook Live video back in October using the Free Skate bundle.  This bundle recently retired, BUT this is a great example showing you how to do a sponged background.

This card started out with the Silver Foil Edged Cards & Envelopes and a layer of Shimmer White CS.

I sponged Seaside Spray, Blueberry Bushel and Night Of Navy inks onto the Shimmer White CS, using the Stamping Sponges.

After the sponging, I heat embossed the snowflakes onto this layer.  The card in this photo uses clear embossing powder with some Dazzling Diamonds added.  In the video I used Sparkle White Stampin’ Emboss.

To continue with my theme, I die cut the skate in Whisper White, Sparkle Glimmer and Silver Glimmer papers.  The shoelaces were diecut from another layer of Shimmer White that i had sponged the blues onto. A few basic rhinestones completes my look.  I hope you love it as much as I do

Double Slider Card Technique

Hi Stampers.  I know Christmas is over, but somehow I forgot to post this card.  It’s a double slider technique – this is a great fold that can be used for any occasion.  I figured it was worth posting so you can watch the video and learn how to make this card.

Stampin' Up! #Elfie Double Slider technique Christmas card fun fold card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For this card, I used the stamp set #Elfie.  If you haven’t figured it out yet – it was my favorite set from the 2019 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog. Its’ adorable and looks great colored with the Stampin’ Blends.

This card is a standard A2 size and fits into the Stampin’ Up! Medium Envelopes for mailing. I love the way it pops open to show two additional panels.

#Elfie Simple Slider Christmas Card

Merry Christmas, Stampers! I hope you are blessed to be able to spend this holiday surrounded by love, good health and friends and family to enjoy it with.

Today’s card is another interactive one for you. Dawn Griffith, a fellow demo, did a video on how to do a simple slider card a few years ago.  I believe her cards were birthday cards and I made several Christmas cards with this slider technique. Since it is Christmas, I am combining the three cards into one post.  You can view my Facebook Live video HERE.

Stampin' Up! #Elfie stamp set and Night Before Christmas DSP simple slider card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

My first card here is made using the #Elfie stamp set, Cherry Cobbler CS, Very Vanilla CS and Night Before Christmas DSP.

Stampin' Up! #Elfie stamp set and Night Before Christmas DSP simple slider card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This is what the card looks like open – revealing the second sentiment.

Stampin' Up! #Elfie stamp set and Night Before Christmas DSP simple slider card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

A Gold Faceted Gem on the end of the slider makes it easier to grip and slide open.

Stampin' Up! #Elfie stamp set and Night Before Christmas DSP simple slider card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Stampin' Up! #Elfie stamp set and Night Before Christmas DSP simple slider card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The inside of the card has a layer of Very Vanilla CS with the elf by the pole stamped in the corner. I colored the elf with the Stampin’ Blends and then used the light Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blend to outline the image, giving it a sort of shadow effect.

Stampin' Up! #Elfie stamp set and Night Before Christmas DSP simple slider card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For my Facebook Live video – I made this second card, showing how I made the first one.  It’s almost the same, I just switched up the DSP  and the elf I used.

Stampin' Up! #Elfie stamp set and Night Before Christmas DSP simple slider card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I also used the other sentiment from the #Elfie stamp set for the hidden message.

Stampin' Up! #Elfie stamp set and Night Before Christmas DSP simple slider card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I used a 1″ glimmer paper circle on the pull tab.  The texture of the glimmer paper makes the tab easy to grab and pull out.

Stampin' Up! #Elfie stamp set and Night Before Christmas DSP simple slider card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Stampin' Up! #Elfie stamp set and Night Before Christmas DSP simple slider card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Like the first card, the inside of the card has a layer of Very Vanilla CS with the elf by the pole stamped in the corner. I colored the elf with the Stampin’ Blends and then used the light Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blend to outline the image, giving it a sort of shadow effect.

Stampin' Up! Holly Jolly Santa simple slider card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For this third card, I reversed the DSP and the neutral layer.  I know it’s hard to see, but behind that Whisper White layer is a layer of the Wrapped in Plaid DSP.

Stampin' Up! Holly Jolly Santa simple slider card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Because the second layer was a pattern, instead of neutral, I had to add a small strip of neutral to stamp the sentiment onto.

Stampin' Up! Holly Jolly Santa simple slider card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The Santa is colored using the Stampin’ Blends.

Stampin' Up! Holly Jolly Santa simple slider card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The 1″ circle on the pull tab is Sparkler Glimmer paper.

Stampin' Up! Holly Jolly Santa simple slider card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card had the fold on the top and has a sentiment stamped in Cherry Cobbler and the present stamped in Memento Black, so it can be colored with the Stampin’ Blends.

What kind of card would you make using this technique?

Ride With Me – Magnetic Slider Card

Hi Stampers. Do you like cards that are just a little different?  I sure do!  I’ve seen a few cards made with mini magnets and couldn’t  wait to give it a try!  The idea is the magnet makes something slide across the card and you can even take it off.  The Ride With Me truck seemed like the perfect fit!  This card really makes more sense when you see it, so I did a Facebook Live video (see that video HERE).

Stampin' Up! Winter Woods Ride With Me interactive magnetic slider Christmas card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I started with a Shaded Spruce card base and stamped the trees from Winter Woods onto a Whisper White layer in Shaded Spruce ink.  I then stamped the truck onto Cherry Cobbler CS and cut it out. The window was cut out using an xacto knife and then backed with a tiny piece of Window Sheet.  The bumper and rims were colored in with a silver gel pen and the tires with a Light Basic Black Stampin’ Blend. I used the Adhesive Strips to create a rectangle section behind the Whisper White layer where I want the truck to slide back and forth. (see the video for more information). The second magnet was adhered to the back of the truck. (You can order the mini magnets HERE).

Stampin' Up! Winter Woods Ride With Me interactive magnetic slider Christmas card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

A little puff paint added to the Whisper White layer over the trees gives the look of snow. The sentiment was stamped on a strip of Whisper White CS and attached to the back of the truck.  You can pull on this flag to make the truck move back and forth.

I used another layer of Whisper White for the interior of the card.  I inked the tree once and stamped it twice.  That’s how I got the two shades of green. 🙂  The FB Live video should be on my YouTube channel later this week.  Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel and turn on notifications by clicking on the small bell next to the “subscribe” button.

Holly Jolly Christmas Wood Ornament

Hi Stampers. I have such a cute project for you today!  Did you know that you can stamp on wood?  You can!  Check out this super cute Christmas Ornament I made by using the Holly Jolly Christmas stamp set to stamp on this wood round / wood slice.  You can get the wood slices on Amazon by clicking HERE.

Stampin' Up! Holly Jolly Christmas Wood Christmas Ornament colored with Stampin' Blends by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The Santa from Holly Jolly Christmas was stamped onto this wood round using Memento Black ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends.

Stampin' Up! Holly Jolly Christmas Wood Christmas Ornament colored with Stampin' Blends by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Make note of the colors used in the supply list below.  The Stampin’ Blends appear darker on wood than they do on paper, so I used almost all “light” versions of the markers.  The white is colored in using the White Stampin’ Chalk Marker. (Careful, the wood can be harsh on the tip of your marker).

Stampin' Up! Holly Jolly Christmas Wood Christmas Ornament colored with Stampin' Blends by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

After doing the stamping and coloring, I covered the slice with clear versamark ink and sprinkled with clear stampin’ emboss powder and melted with the heat tool.

Stampin' Up! Holly Jolly Christmas Wood Christmas Ornament colored with Stampin' Blends by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

To finish it off, I threaded the Real Red Curly ribbon through the hole and tied it twice.  Once near the top of wood round and once at the top making the loop to hang it on the tree.  I then used the Shaded Spruce and Gold ribbon to make a bow at the top of the wood round.  Didn’t it come out cute!?!? I can’t wait to see if they sell well at my next craft fair. You should give it a try! I’d love to see what you create!

Here is a video of a Facebook Live I did showing how to make this cute creation:

Spooktacular Bash Fake Vampire Blood

Hi Stampers. Halloween is coming and I have such a cool technique to share with you today!!  In the past, I have used hair gel and blue re-inkers, but recently another demo used hair gel and red re-inkers to make fake blood!

Stampin' Up! Spooktacular Fake Blood technique with video handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I used the Spooktacular Bash stamp set and Ornate Frames Dies along with the Monster Bash DSP to make this creepy Vampire card.

Stampin' Up! Spooktacular Fake Blood technique with video handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut out the center of the card front and backed it with Real Red.  The fake blood is made using hair gel and red re-inkers sealed inside of a zip-lock bag that is well taped together to prevent leaking.

Stampin' Up! Spooktacular Fake Blood technique with video handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I just love those Ornate Frames! I will be using those frames YEAR ROUND!   For this card, the frame was cut using Merry Merlot CS.

Stampin' Up! Spooktacular Fake Blood technique with video handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The Spooktacular Bash stamp set has several great stamps that helped me decorate the interior of the card to match the exterior.  The sentiment and jars were stamped in Basic Gray ink.
