Flourishing Phrases Sympathy Card

Hi Stampers.  I have a quick and easy monochrome card today that can be used as a sympathy card or a get well card. I used the Flourishing Phrases and Flourish Thinlits from Stampin’ Up!

Stampin' Up! Fourishing Phrases Handmade Sympathy card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card started with a Night of Navy card base 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. Next is a layer of Whisper White that is 4″ x 5-1/4″. Onto this layer, I stamped the Flower Flourish and the sentiment both in Night of Navy ink.

The design across the bottom is from the Flourish Thinlits set. I added some Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet to the back of Night of Navy CS and then cut it out on the BIG SHOT. A few basic pearl jewels finished it off and added some dimension.

Stampin’ Tip: The Multipurose Adhesive Sheets make this element a sticker.  One side was adhered to the CS before cutting and after cutting the backing was removed. Poof – you have a sticker! No mess!

The inside of the card also has a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Whisper White CS. For the inside sentiment, I used a coordinating stamp from the same stamp set and stamped in Night of Navy ink. I love that this set has stamps that work for inside and outside sentiments.  I used the same flower flourish from the front of the card, but only stamped part of it in the lower right corner in Night of Navy ink. It was stamped BEFORE adhering to the card base so the rest of the stamp could hang off and stamp onto scrap paper.

Bee Thankful – Stampin’ Blends Ombre’ Technique

Hi Stampers.  Happy Saturday Morning!  I hope you have something fun planned for the weekend.  I’ve cut parts for a bunch of cards and will be going to an open crop at my friends scrapbook store downtown today to  assemble them and watch the Downtown Twin Falls St. Patrick’s Day Parade. I have a card today that I hope you will LOVE as much as I do!

Stampin' Up! Bee Thankful handmade card Ombre' Technique using the Stampin' Blends alcohol markers made by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations (Video included in post)

This beautiful card starts with a Lovely Lipstick card base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″.  I used the Big Shot and the Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to dry emboss a 5-1/4″ x 4″ layer of Powder Pink CS and attached that to the card base with snail adhesive. The next Lovely Lipstick layer of CS is 5-1/4″ x 2-3/4″, followed by a layer of Whisper White CS that is 5-1/4″ x 2-1/2″. I stamped the Bee Thankful stamp onto the Whisper White layer with Memento Black ink.

Stampin' Up! Bee Thankful handmade card Ombre' Technique using the Stampin' Blends alcohol markers made by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations (Video included in post)

The Ombre’ effect was created on the letters by coloring with the Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Duo. I colored the dark on the bottom and the light on the top of each letter.  To help it blend better, I made small circles where the light and dark colors met. The leaves were then colored with the Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Duo and the Bee was colored with the Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Duo. I added a few random rhinestones to the front of the card and a little Wink of Stella to the Bee and over the letters to finish it off. As the Queen, I just love sparkles! 🙂

For the inside of the card, I stamped just the bee (I inked the bee without inking the rest of the stamp) onto a 5-1/4″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White CS. The bee was colored with the Daffodil Delight stampin’ blends and the flower with the light Lovely Lipstick stampin’ blend. I then added a little bit of Wink of Stella to his wings.

Here is a video, showing you how I did it:

Spring Has Sprung – Wobble Card

Hi Stampers.

Welcome to the Pals’ March Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because ”Spring has Sprung” – at least on our blog hop if not outside! Our Design Team created beautiful projects to inspire you. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

When they announced that this blog hop would be called “Spring has Sprung”, the idea of a wobble card (on a spring) sounded perfect!  This little jumping frog from the 2019 Sale-A-Bration level 1 options looks like he should wobble.

I started this card with a Mossy Meadow card base, 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. The word hooray from the Stampin’ Up! Well Written thinlits dies were used on the big shot to cut the words out of Mossy Meadow, Old Olive and Pear Pizazz card stock.  On the Big Shot, the Cala lillies were cut out of Old Olive CS using the Catch of the Day thinlits dies.

The frog, from So Hoppy Together (a level 1 Sale-A-Bration item), was stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White CS using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I colored him using the Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Duo and cut him out using the paper snips. (If you were one of the lucky ones who got the coordinating Hop It Framelit dies before they sold out – you can use those.)

The spring was created by wrapping a 26 gauge wire around a paintbrush (or pencil, or straw, anything that size) leaving a 1/2″ straight piece at each end of the “spring”.  Attach one end of the “spring” to the back of the frog using tape and attach the other end to the card front using tape. Now it’s a “wobble card”!

For the inside of the card I used a piece of Whisper White CS, 4″ x 5-1/4″.  I stamped the frog, crown and butterfly from the So Hoppy Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink. The frog was colored with Old Olive Stampin’ Blends duo, the crown was colored with the dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend and the butterfly was colored with the Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends duo. The sentiment, from the Well Said stamp set was also stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.

I used the Tropical Escape DSP to decorate the flap on a Whisper White Medium Envelope. It came out super cute.  I hope you give it a try! Next in this post, I have included a video of how I made this card.  It was one of my Facebook Live posts from my Facebook page. Each Monday at 2:30pm I go live on my Facebook page.  You should join me!  If you don’t do Facebook, you can find those videos (edited) uploaded to my YouTube Channel.  Please subscribe and click the bell for notification to be notified each time a new video is uploaded.

Lasting Lily – Step It Up

Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop Badge

Hi Stampers. I’m back!  I’m sorry it’s been a while. I was surprised with an emergency appendectomy for Valentine’s Day.  It’s been a bit of a rough recovery, but I’m glad to be blogging again.  Today I’m coming to you with a blog hop for the Global Stamping Friends.  Today we are all sharing items that have been “stepped up”.

Beginner Stamper:

Stampin' Up! Lasting Lily Sympathy Card step it up blog hop Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

My first card is a simple version.  It starts out with a Highland Heather card base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″.  I stamped the Lilies from the Lasting Lily stamp set (a level 2 Sale-A-Bration product) in Highland Heather ink and the stems in Old Olive ink, onto a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White CS. The sentiment was then stamped in Highland Heather ink. I then tied a knot in the center of a 6″ piece of Highland Heather organdy ribbon (a level 1 Sale-A-Bration product) and wrapped it around the top of the whisper White layer. I attached it to the back of the layer using glue dots. The Whisper White layer was then attached to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Easy peasy!

Here are some tips for using the distINKtive stamps from Stampin’ Up!:

For my second card I stepped it up a little.  This starts out with a Gorgeous Grape card base, 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″.  This time I stamped the one lily in Highland Heather ink and stem in Old Olive ink onto the Whisper White layer. The second lily and stem were stamped onto scraps of Whisper White CS and cut out using the Lily Framelits Dies (a limited release Stampin’ Up! Coordination product). The second lily and stem are adhered to the Whisper White layer using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment was stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White CS in Highland Heather ink and cut out with one of the smaller ovals from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies. This was backed with a layer of Gorgeous Grape CS cut out with a slightly larger scallop oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies. The ovals were adhered together with snail adhesive and then adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I then wrapped the 6″ piece of Highland Heather organdy ribbon (a level 1 Sale-A-Bration product) around the top of the Whisper White layer and adhered it to the back with glue dots.  Next, I tied a bow in a piece of the Highland Heather organdy ribbon and adhered it to the card front (over the other ribbon) using glue dots. The Whisper White layer was then adhered to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For this third card, it’s stepped up yet again.  This time I started with the Gorgeous Grape card base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. Next up is a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Highland Heather CS that has been dry embossed using the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. This time I stamped the first lily and stem onto a 2-7/8″ x 2-7/8″ piece of Whisper White CS.  This layer was cut using the Layering Squares Framelits Dies, but could easily be cut with the trimmer if you choose.

The second lily and stem were again stamped onto scraps of Whisper White and die cut using the Lily Framelits Dies. These were then adhered to the card front using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. The Whisper White Square was then adhered to the Highland Heather layer using mini glue dots.  I chose to use mini glue dots instead of snail because of the texture on the Highland Heather layer – the glue dots are “thicker” and stick better. You could also use tear and tape.

I wrapped a 6″ piece of HIghland Heather organdy ribbon around the bottom part of the Highland Heather layer and adhered it to the back with glue dots. The sentiment was stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White CS in Highland Heather ink and cut out with one of the smaller ovals from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies. This was backed with a layer of Gorgeous Grape CS cut out with a slightly larger scallop oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies. The ovals were adhered together with snail adhesive and then adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The Highland Heather layer was then adhered to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. This third card was a few more steps and a few more tools, but I’m thrilled with the way it came out!

So, as you can see here – this card can be done at varying levels of skill and using just a few tools or a bunch of tools.  You can follow along on the hop and see more examples of how to “step it up”!
