Stampin' Up! Sweet Ice Cream Corner Happy Birthday Fun Fold card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I did a Facebook Live video Monday, making a Valentine’s Day card using this fold and people loved it!  So I decided to use the same fold for today’s blog hop card.

Stampin' Up! Sweet Ice Cream Corner Happy Birthday Fun Fold card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Last Saturday was my birthday, so this Saturday I’m doing a sort of reverse birthday party over on my Business Facebook Page and the theme is an Ice Cream Social.  So, the Ice Cream Corner Suite was the perfect fit!

I’m in love with this confetti pattern in the Ice Cream Corner DSP – it’s so fun!  The ice cream and cones are cut out of other patterns in the Ice Cream Corner DSP.  For the ice cream and the cone, I punched out an additional set out of CS and glued the CS to the back of the DSP, just making it more firm so it won’t bend as the card is handled.

The Happy Birthday sentiment, from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set, was stamped in Blackberry Bliss ink onto a 1-1/4″ x 3-1/4″ strip of Whisper White and mounted onto a layer of Blackberry Bliss CS.  This sentiment is attached to the card front using stampin’ dimensionals and the ice cream cones were adhered with liquid glue.

Sale-A-Bration Approaching Perfection

Hi Stampers, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team created projects featuring “Sale-A-Bration Products.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments. We love hearing from you! At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Stampin' Up! Approaching Perfection Fidget Spinner card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For my project, I chose to use the Approaching Perfection birthday stamp set.  You can earn this level one Sale-A-Bration item by placing a $50 order of current Stampin’ Up! product.  I made a similar fidget spinner card in 2017.  You can see that old post HERE.

Stampin' Up! Approaching Perfection Fidget Spinner card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

My card base is Pacific Point card stock 8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″. Next I took a 5.25″ x 4″ piece of Basic White card stock and used the classic label punch to cut a slit in the layer for the fidget spinner to spin in. I used the Approaching Perfection stamp set (and the Stamparatus) to stamp the candles along the bottom of the Basic White layer in Pacific Point and Daffodil Delight ink (applied to the stamp using the Stampin’ Write Markers). The balloons (also from Approaching Perfection) were stamped in Memento Black ink and colored using the Stampin’ Write Markers.

Stampin' Up! Approaching Perfection Fidget Spinner card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For the fidget spinner itself, I downloaded a clip art file and cut it out on my Silhouette Cameo. (You could take an actual fidget spinner and trace it and cut it out of Pacific Point card stock). What makes object on the card spin is pennies. I have one on either side of the Basic White layer and they are attached in the middle with a mini stampin’ dimensional.

Diecutting smaller circles using the Stampin' Up! Shark Dies with Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Next, I needed circles: 1″, 3/4″ and 1/2″.  Last time I used punches, but those have since retired. A quick flip through the catalog and I found the Shark Dies, it had circles, and they were the right size! I used the waves from the Shark Dies and Basic Black card stock to diecut the 1″ circles and adhered them with liquid glue to the three points on the spinner. Next I die cut out 3 3/4″ circles from Basic Black card stock and adhered those over the top of the 1″ circles with a stampin’ dimensional. Finally, I punched out a 1/2″ circle and adhered it to the middle with liquid glue.

Stampin' Up! Approaching Perfection Fidget Spinner card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Inside the card is a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Basic White CS.  I stamped the Happy Birthday (from the Approaching Perfection stamp set) in the center in Pacific Point.  In the lower right corner, I stamped another set of candles, inked using the brush tip of the Stampin’ Write Markers

Snailed It Valentine

Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop Badge

Hi Stampers.  Well, we did it…  We made it though 2020.  Can you believe that Valentines Day will be here soon?  On one hand the last year feels like a blur and on the other hand it feels like we “snailed it” through the year.  So, it only seemed appropriate to use the new Snailed It Bundle (part of the Snail Mail Suite) for my Valentine’s Day for today’s blog hop.

Stampin' Up! Snailed It Snail Mail Valentine Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations IG

My card starts off with a Blushing Bride card base followed by a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of the Snailed It DSP.  Using the Triple Banner Punch, I then flagged the end of a 1/2″ strip of Basic White CS (approximately 5″ long) and then stamped the word “hello” near the flagged end. Also using the Triple Banner Punch, I flagged the end of a 3/4″ and 1″ strip of the Snailed It DSP (various patterns, approx  5-1/2″ long).

Stampin' Up! Snailed It Snail Mail Valentine Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

With Memento Black ink, I stamped the snail onto a scrap of Basic White CS and colored it with the Stampin’ Blends. Using the Snail Dies, I die cut the snail out, a few hearts out of Real Red CS and a postage square out of Blushing Bride CS. Next up, I adhered the strips with Stampin’ Seal and the postage stamp and hearts with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Snailed It Snail Mail Valentine Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Inside the card is a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Basic White onto which I stamped the hearts and mushrooms. I used my AWESOME Stampin’ Blends to color.  I’m thrilled with how it came out!

Stampin' Up! Sweet Strawberry bundle Sale-A-Bration Berry Delightful DSP Thank You card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The Sweet Strawberry bundle is for sale in the Jan-Jun Mini catalog. This bundle consists of the Sweet Strawberry Stamp set and the Strawberry Builder Punch.  One of the Level 2 items in the Sale-A-Bration is a coordinating stamp set and DSP.  This item contains the Berry Blessings stamp set and the Berry Delightful DSP. They work beautifully together!

Stampin' Up! Sweet Strawberry bundle Sale-A-Bration Berry Delightful DSP Thank You card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

My card has a Cherry Cobbler card base with a 3″ x 3″ piece of Whisper White CS adhered in the upper right corner.  Over that, I adhered a 5-1/4″ x 4″ layer of the Berry Delightful DSP (which you can earn FREE during Sale-A-Bration!).  Before adhering it, I used my bone folder to curl back the upper right corner.  I used Stampin’ Seal adhesive around most of this layer, but pinned back the corner using a glue dot.

Stampin’ Tip: The Build a Strawberry punch can make a 3D strawberry – just punch out 3 of the strawberries (in Cherry Cobbler) and 3 of the stem and leaves (in Garden Green). Score each strawberry in half and attach them together. Use liquid glue to attach the leaves and stems to each strawberry.  Cut off the stem of the center strawberry, leaving the leaves. Adhere the back of the strawberry to the card and the two stems together.

Stampin' Up! Sweet Strawberry bundle Sale-A-Bration Berry Delightful DSP Thank You card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Inside my card is a 5-1/4″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White CS, adhered with Stampin’ Seal.  Two step stamping was done for the strawberry  (stamped in two parts – the solid and the detail) in Cherry Cobbler ink.  The sentiment and the leaves/stem to the strawberry are stamped in Garden Green ink.

Winter Holiday Advent Card

Hi Stampers, welcome to another blog hop.  For this hop we are featuring some holiday’s other than Christmas.  I chose to showcase an Advent card I made for a customer.

Stampin' Up! Advent Candle Tealight Holder card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

My Advent card started with a thick Whisper White card base with an open top and bottom.  (Think of the base as two cards that were put together to make a square box.)

Stampin' Up! Advent Candle Tealight Holder card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

After cutting and scoring my base, I used the layering circles dies to cut a circle in the center of each panel. (Here is a photo of how it looked before it went together.)

Stampin' Up! Advent Candle Tealight Holder card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

On the outside of the card I have die cut a swirled circle around each opening. (I apologize that I used some non-SU glitter paper for these – but it would look gorgeous cut out of the brightly gleaming paper, too.)

Stampin' Up! Advent Candle Tealight Holder card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Inside the card I have attached a piece of vellum for each circle, to make it a window.  Inside each window are (1, 2, 3 & 4) candles that I cut using my Brother Scan N Cut (<– affiliate link)

Stampin' Up! Advent Candle Tealight Holder card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Inside the card, I placed an battery operated tealight candle to light it up. (safer than an open flame).

When you flatten the card, the message part of the card slides in and then pulls out in order to stand it up for display.

Doesn’t it look beautiful all lit up?

PPP Blog Hop Jolly Gingerbread

Hi Stampers.  Welcome back for another Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop, where we show you alternative ideas with your monthly Paper Pumpkin kit by Stampin’ Up!  This month we are playing with the Jolly Gingerbread kit.  The kit made adorable little boxes shaped like gingerbread houses, you can see them in the video below, but I didn’t need those.  I needed cards – so that’s what I made.

Stampin' Up! Jolly Gingerbread Paper Pumpkin alternative project by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

My card is a fun fold called a landscape easel card.  This is the fold I used on my card yesterday for my Facebook Live class.  It will be on YouTube soon.  The card base is 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ Early Espresso CS, scored at 4-1/4″ and 6″.  I layered Soft Suede CS and Trimming the Town DSP over that.

Stampin' Up! Jolly Gingerbread Paper Pumpkin alternative project by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This gave me a cute winter scene, in which to set my house.  Don’t you love how the path (on the DSP) leads right up to the door of my house?  All stamps used on this card are from the Jolly Gingerbread Paper Pumpkin Kit and I used Early Espresso ink. The house is colored using Stampin’ Blends and the fence is made using scraps of Whisper White CS that I punched out using the Classic Label punch.

Stampin' Up! Jolly Gingerbread Paper Pumpkin alternative project by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Inside the card, I stamped on a Whisper White layer in Early Espresso ink. As a “stop” to hold the card open, I used the two smallest dies in the Stitched Nested Label Dies and die cut an Early Espresso and a Whisper White label.  They are attached with stampin’ dimensionals.

Doesn’t it look cute all propped up?  It was fun – how fast it all came together!
