Happy Valentine’s Day Banner

Hi Stampers. Can you believe it’s February already?!?!  Where has time gone?  We are less than two weeks from Valentine’s Day. Are you ready?  Here is a beautiful Valentine’s Day Banner made using some new products from the 2021 January to June Mini Catalog. (You can see more details on how I make my longer banners in this post – where I share my Thanksgivings Day Banner).

Stampin' Up! Love You Always Playful Alphabet Valentines Day Banner by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

When I first saw the Love You Always Specialty Designer Paper and Foil Sheets, I knew they would make a beautiful Valentine’s Day banner.

What I did not consider is how hard the foil would make it to photograph. LOL

I hung the Valentine’s Day banner on the fence in our backyard in an attempt to get good lighting.

Each pennant is made using Rococo Rose card stock and the Rococo Rose Love You Always Specialty Designer Series Paper and flagged at the bottom.

The hearts were punched out of Basic Gray CS and the Rococo Rose Foil Sheets and added to each pennant using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Each letter was die cut from Basic Gray CS (with adhesive sheet on the back) using the Playful Alphabet Dies.

It was then simple to peel off the backing on each letter and adhere each letter to a foil heart.  A hole punch was used at the top of each pennant on the left and right side, to allow the ribbon to weave through.

Here is how the Valentine’s Day banner  looks like hanging on the wall inside my home.  It really is much prettier in person.  For a smaller simpler version of a Valentine’s Day Banner – see this post.

True Love Banner

Hi Stampers. Are you looking for a little holiday decor that won’t break the bank?  Have you thought about breaking out your papercrafting supplies and making a banner?  This adorable love banner uses the True Love DSP, the Heart Punch Pack and the Playful Alphabet Dies.

Stampin' Up! Playful Alphabet True Love Heart Punch Valentines Day love banner by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For my love banner, I started with a sheet of Cherry Cobbler CS and cut it half both ways (portrait and landscape).  That gave me four pieces of CS 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″. Next, I cut four pieces of the True Love DSP 4″ x 5-1/4″.  To make the pennants, I flagged the end of each piece of CS and each piece of DSP.  You can see more about how to do that in my YouTube Video HERE.

Stampin' Up! Playful Alphabet True Love Heart Punch Valentines Day love banner by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The letters for my love banner were die cut out of Cherry Cobbler CS with Adhesive Sheet on the back (this made them sticker letters). Using the Heart Punch Pack, I punched four scalloped hearts out of Cherry Cobbler CS and four straight hearts out of Basic White CS. The letters were adhered to the Basic White hearts and those were adhered to the scalloped hearts using multipurpose liquid glue. Finally, the hearts are attached to the pennants using Stampin’ Dimensonals.

At the top of the pennants, I punched a hole on either side for the ribbon to go through.  For my love banner, I used up some retired Stampin’ Up! ribbon.

Happy Holidays with Stampin’ Friends

Hi Stampers. Welcome to the Stamping Friends Holiday Hop! Can you believe that (in the US) Thanksgiving is next week?!?  How did we reach the end of November so quickly?!?!?  With all that is going on with COVID, my husband and I have decided to stay home alone.  But, that doesn’t mean we can’t have a festive banner to hang.

THANKSGIVING BANNER:

Stampin' Up! Gilded Autumn Playful Alphabet Happy Thanksgiving banner by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Each pennant of this Thanksgiving banner is made using Cajun Craze CS and then a layer of the GORGEOUS Gilded Autumn Designer Series Paper was placed over that. Each pennant was manually “flagged” the end using the paper snips.

Stampin' Up! Gilded Autumn Playful Alphabet Happy Thanksgiving banner by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I used the Playful Alphabet Dies to die cut the letters for “Happy Thanksgiving” and the Layering Circle Dies were used to cut the circles.

Stampin' Up! Gilded Autumn Playful Alphabet Happy Thanksgiving banner by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The letters and circles are alternates of Cajun Craze, Early Espresso and Mint Macaron CS and then mixed and matched.

Stampin' Up! Gilded Autumn Playful Alphabet Happy Thanksgiving banner by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The larger circles are adhered to the banner pennant using Stampin’ Seal and the second circle is added with stampin’ dimensionals. Since I used Adhesive Sheets on the back of the CS I used for the letters, all I had to do was peel off the backing and adhere the letters as stickers. Easy peasy.

Stampin' Up! Gilded Autumn Playful Alphabet Happy Thanksgiving banner by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

At the top of each pennant, I punched a hole on either side using a 1/4″ circle punch and used the 1/4″ Cinnamon Cider ribbon to string it all up.  Overall, I was pretty happy with how it came out, but I think I’m gonna go back and add some die cut leaves to the blank pennants.

I did this banner as a Facebook Live on my Facebook Business Page, it’s now been edited and uploaded to my YouTube Channel.  Go subscribe!

CARD:

Stampin' Up! Gilded Autumn DSP top flap card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For my card, I used a 11″ x 4-1/4″ card based scored at 5-1/2″ and then cut 2″ off of the bottom front of the card base and rounded the corners.

Stampin' Up! Gilded Autumn DSP top flap card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

To finish off the top, I added a 4″ x 3-1/4″ layer of Gilded Autumn DSP (I also rounded the corners on this piece) and wrapped a piece of the Early Espresso Suede Trim all the way around.  I used a second piece of ribbon (and my bow maker tool) to make the bow and attached that with glue dots.

For the sentiment, I stamped the word “thanks” from the Many Mates stamp set in Early Espresso ink onto a scrap of Very Vanilla CS and punched it out using the 1-1/2″ punch.  This is then attached it to a piece of Early Espresso CS that had been punched out using the Label Me Lovely Punch using stampin’ dimensionals and the label is attached to the card front (as seen in the photo) using Stampin’ Seal.

Inside the card started with a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Very Vanilla CS with a 4″ x 2-1/4″ piece of DSP added to the bottom.  (This is actually the other side of the DSP used on the top of the card. The inside sentiment is also from the Many Mates stamp set and is also stamped in Early Espresso ink. This fold is new to me, I like it!  Do you want more holiday inspiration?

Ornate Thanks Mini Desk Calendar

Hi Stampers. Happy (fresh start) Monday. My goal for this week is to get more organized. One thing I need to keep me organized is a good calendar!  I need to use my planner more… but a good desk calendar for quick reference is good, too. For today’s post, I’m combining an easel card with a calendar and tossing in a note pad to make it even more useful.

You have probably seen me do many easel cards in the past.  I’ve done regular easel cards (see one here), sideways easel cards (see one here), some with a twist (see one here) and even some fancy easel cards (see one here)…

Stampin' Up! Ornate Garden Thanks mini desk calendar by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The basics of the calendar are the same as an easel card.  I started with an Mossy Meadow card base 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5-1/2″.  The front of the easel has an extra 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ piece of Mossy Meadow CS, with a layer of the Ornate Garden DSP over that.

The small calendars can be purchased online at Taylored Expressions.  I mounted the calendar onto a layer of Poppy Parade CS that was slightly larger.

Once propped up, you see that it is lined with another layer of the same DSP.  You will also see that I have covered a post it note page with a back layer of Bumblebee CS and a front layer of Ornate Garden DSP.

Stampin' Up! Ornate Garden Thanks mini desk calendar by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The sentiment was stamped using the Ornate Thanks stamp set onto a scrap of Very Vanilla CS that was then die cut using the stitched rectangle dies.  That was mounted over an Old Olive frame die cut using the Ornate Frames Dies.  These are then mounted on Stampin’ Dimensionals.  More detailed information can be found in the video below.

Spring Sampler Class Project

Hi Stampers.  Today I held a class on how to create this adorable spring sampler. We used the Free As A Bird and the Fable Friends stamp set.  The background is an 8″ x 8″ piece of Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.

The color palette for our Spring Sampler were pulled from the Bird Ballad DSP. I then cut 2″ x 2″ squares of each color, so people could arrange them on the background until they liked how it looked.

stampin up free as a bird fable friends framed sampler by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For the large rectangle, I cut colored cardstock to 2″ x 4-1/4″.  The Whisper White pieces are 1-3/4″ x 1-3/4″ and 1-3/4″ x 4″.  We stamped spring sampler images onto the Whisper White using the Free As A Bird and Fable Friends in Memento Black ink.

All images were colored with the Stampin’ Blends. I can’t emphasize enough how much I love those blends! I wasn’t sure how to color the birds, so I copied the coloring on the birds in the Bird Ballad DSP.

This is what the completed spring sampler project looks like in a frame.  It also looked great in a black frame – it really made the color POP!  I hope you give one a try – it’s fun!

Christmas Themed Framed Samplers

Hi Stampers. Two weeks ago I shared a FALL themed sampler that I made. (See that post HERE) While I was in the mood to do samplers, I did several.  Today I am showing you the two Chritmas themed ones I made.  All the measurements are the same, I just used different papers, ink colors and stamps.

Stampin' Up! Winter and Christmas framed samplers home decor by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

These frames are 8″ x 8″ and can be purchased on Amazon with my affiliate link HERE. The background for both of these are glimmer paper. Most of my squares are 2″ x 2″ colored cardstock with 1-3/4″ x 1-3/4″ layer over those.  I used Whisper White CS to stamp onto.  There are 1/4″ border between squares. One of the blocks are rectangles – 2″ x 4-1/4″. The 4-1/4″ was made by adding the 2″ plus 2″ plus the 1/4″ gap.

Stampin' Up! Winter and Christmas framed samplers home decor by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This sampler is a little of everything Christmas – I’ve tried to list all the supplies below.  It has a Christmas feel to it complete with Santa And an Elf and a few  Christmas trees.

Stampin' Up! Winter and Christmas framed samplers home decor by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This sampler used mostly the Snowman Season Bundle and Let it Snow DSP, with a few extras thrown in.  I found that the Snow Globe Dies worked perfectly for my 2″ squares.

Stampin' Up! 8" x 8" framed sampler home decor for Fall/Autumn by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Figuring out the layout took a little bit of math.  I started with 2″ x 2″ blocks.  Since i wanted 1/4″ borders, I knew I could get three 2″ blocks each way.  The three 2″ blocks added to 6″.  The gap between blocks were two 1/4″ gaps. Which gave me 6-1/2″.  Eight inches minus 6-1/2″ left me with an extra 1-1/2″ – putting half on either side gave me 3/4″ each side.  The diagram may help explain what I am trying to say here.

I used the green squares as placeholders while I arranged the four corner squares. Then I centered the other squares between the corners.  After all my squares were attached I removed the green placeholder squares.
