Hey Sports Fan Gift Box

Hi, Stamper. Hey, Sports Fan, do you know someone who would really get a kick out of this handmade gift box? I made this box to hold a Resees Peanut Butter Cup, but it could also hold a KitKat bar or many other candies or non-candies for that matter…

Stampin' Up! Hey Sports Fan DSP Handmade Gift Box by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The base of my gift box starts with a piece of Evening Evergreen CS – 7-1/2″ x 9″.  This piece is scored on the long side at 3″, 3-3/4″, 6-3/4″ and 7-1/2″.  On the short side, it is scored at 1/2″, 1-1/4″, 6-1/4″ and 7″.

The diagram below explains how to cut off the excess pieces way better than I could ever explain in writing. I decorated the outside of the gift box as if it was the front of a card. First I added a 4-7/8″ x 2-7/8″ layer of Crushed Curry CS, next up is a 4-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ layer of Hey Sports Fan DSP. The large ticket is die cut from Evening Evergreen CS and the number one was die cut from Crushed Curry CS. The baseball ticket was die cut out of the Hey Sports Fan DSP using the Sports Events Dies – even the perforation where the small “admit one” portion tears off the top ticket.

Inside the gift box, the top layer has a 4-7/8″ x 2-7/8″ layer of Crushed Curry CS, next up is a 4-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ layer of Hey Sports Fan DSP.  The bottom part has a 4-7/8″ x 1-3/8″ layer of Crushed Curry CS followed by a 4-1/4″ x 1-1/4″ layer of the Hey Sports Fan DSP.  What would you put into the box?

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Celebrating In Color

Welcome to our Celebrating in Color Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop. Each month a group of us demonstrators use that months Paper Pumpkin  Kit and come up with alternative ideas. I made a box to hold cards as my project this month.

The photo above shows how the Celebrating In Color cards look if put together according to the instructions.

May 2022 Paper Pumpkin Alternative by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This is my box, I used the hinge stamping method with the Stamparatus to stamp the word HAPPY four times on the tag (from the kit). This stamp was part of the Celebrating In Color Paper Pumpkin kit. I then colored the words with the Tahitian Tide Stampin’ Blends, dark on the bottom – light on the top.

May 2022 Paper Pumpkin Alternative by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The top of the box is made using Tahitian Tide CS, while the bottom is made using Parakeet Party CS (video tutorial below).

May 2022 Paper Pumpkin Alternative by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The bottom of the box is made with two pieces of Parakeet Party CS- each piece is 7″ x 6-1/2″ and it is scored on 3 sides (2 long & 1 short) at 1″. Then the top of the box is made with two pieces of Tahitian Tide CS – each piece is 7-1/16″ x 6-11/16″.

May 2022 Paper Pumpkin Alternative by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Two pieces of Tahitian Tide DSP 5″ x 6″ decorate the top of the box and then my tag (mounted on the card front and trimmed down to be a mat) was adhered over that. Finally the sentiment was stamped in Basic Gray onto the tag and adhered with mini stampin’ dimensionals.

Here is a close up of the Stampin’ Blends coloring.  The video below will explain this is much better.  But, remember, the fun continues so be sure to click the pumpkin below that says “NEXT” to visit Joni’s blog to see what she did with the Celebrating in Color kit.

Royal Retreat Make-n-Takes Day 2

Hi, Stamper. I’m back today with more projects we did during our Royal Retreat.  We had so much fun!

Royal Retreat Spring 2022 by Queen B Creations Make n takes featuring Stampin' Up! Flowering Rain Boots

Paper crafting with friends is THE BEST!

Royal Retreat Spring 2022 by Queen B Creations Make n takes featuring Stampin' Up! Flowering Rain Boots

Here is just a sampling of what Royal Retreat attendees got for attending – including the Flowering Rain Boots bundle. They also received many little “pillow gifts” along the way and we played Bingo for prizes.

Royal Retreat Spring 2022 by Queen B Creations Make n takes featuring Stampin' Up! Flowering Rain Boots

This Flowering Rain Boots card started showcased how beautiful these stamps can be when stamped on colored paper and then die cut.

Royal Retreat Spring 2022 by Queen B Creations Make n takes featuring Stampin' Up! Flowering Rain Boots

Lots of layers and some dry embossing gave this card a lot of interest.

For this card we were keeping it simple, showing how the Scalloped Contour Dies work so well together with the Flowering Rain Boots..

All attendees also got a pack of the new Pebbles to use on their cards – aren’t they cute!?!?

We also played with some new products – such as the Stylish Shapes Dies (the stitched squares).

While most of our make-n-takes were cards, I thought this seed packet holder worked great with our Flowering Rain Boots theme!

Each attendee got a different pack of seeds, but they were all flowers with a “royal” name, such as this Giant Double Violet Queen.

Royal Retreat Framed Sampler

Hi, Stamper. We had so much fun at our Royal Retreat! During the retreat I offered a framed sampler class, using the Flowering Rain Boots bundle.  (Two of the stampers chose to say “GROW” instead, so they can display it for a longer period of time in their home.)

Royal Retreat Spring 2022 by Queen B Creations Make n take framed sampler featuring Stampin' Up! Flowering Rain Boots

The frame for my framed sampler, is from IKEA and is 10″ x 10″. (I’ve previously done them with an 8″ x 8″ frame – CLICK HERE or HERE.) The backdrop is a 10″ x 10″ piece of DSP.

Royal Retreat Spring 2022 by Queen B Creations Make n take framed sampler featuring Stampin' Up! Flowering Rain Boots

The word “SPRING”, was cut out of card stock using the retired Large Letter Dies – I LOVE THOSE!!

Royal Retreat Spring 2022 by Queen B Creations Make n take framed sampler featuring Stampin' Up! Flowering Rain Boots

The colors used in my framed sampler were Granny Apple Green, Pale Papaya, Polished Pink, Daffodil Delight, Highland Heather and Balmy Blue.

Royal Retreat Spring 2022 by Queen B Creations Make n take framed sampler featuring Stampin' Up! Flowering Rain Boots

Most of the stamping for my framed sampler was done with the Rain Boots bundle, but I also added a Sweet Songbird in a nest. I also added a few tiny die cut butterflies to flutter around. I’m so happy with how it came out.  What do you think?

Double Candy Bar Holder

Hi, Stampers. I’m excited to share this double candy bar holder with you.  I saw Dawn Griffith make this several years ago and have been wanting to make one ever since. It’s adorable and makes a great small gift!

Stampin' Up! Double Candy Bar Holder by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This double candy bar holder started out with Gorgeous Grape CS 7-1/8″ x 8-1/4″.  It is scored on 7-1/8″ side at 2-1/4″, 2-5/8″, 3″, 5-1/4″ & 6″. On the 8-1/4″ side, it is scored at 1″, 1-3/8″, 6-7/8″ & 7-1/4″.  I also cut two additional pieces of Gorgeous Grape CS 2″ x 5-1/2″.

Stampin' Up! Double Candy Bar Holder by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

To decorate the double candy bar holder, I used the Sweet Talk DSP – 5-3/8″ x 1″  and  5-3/8″ x 2-1/8″  and  (2) 5-3/8″ x 1-1/4″.

Hexagon Triple Pocket Twist Card

Hi Stampers. I have a pocket twist card for you today that is a bit on the advanced side. In my video below, I try my best to keep it simple, but it was just so fun, I had to give it a try!

Stampin' Up! Christmas Hexagon Triple Pocket Christmas Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

When I first saw this pocket twist card, it was on a video by a fellow demonstrator – Dawn Griffith.  The Halloween version was my first attempt, then I made the Christmas version for my video.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Hexagon Triple Pocket Christmas Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I thought it kind of looked like an ornament when it was folded together.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Hexagon Triple Pocket Christmas Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Here is a view of the card base before assembly.  I’ve also got a diagram below that you can pin to Pinterest for later reference.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Hexagon Triple Pocket Christmas Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The measurements of the Designer Series Paper start out as rectangles and then two of them are cut diagonally before adhering to the card base.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Hexagon Triple Pocket Christmas Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The card pops open and can hold notes and gift cards in the pockets. You can see how it gets it’s name “pocket twist card”.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Hexagon Triple Pocket Christmas Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I found it challenging to get it folded correctly at first.  But, by taking it one step at a time and not rushing, it came together great. Once it was together, it kind of falls back into place on future opening.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Hexagon Triple Pocket Christmas Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Here is a view of the inside with the sentiment card and a gift card.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Hexagon Triple Pocket Christmas Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I made two of the layered cards, one with my sentiment and one to write my message on.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Hexagon Triple Pocket Christmas Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

It’s all held together with a belly band. The ornate frame label is adhered to the card base with dimensionals only on the bottom, so you can slide the belly band down and it rests on those dimensionals.  Watch the video below and let me know what you think.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Hexagon Triple Pocket Christmas Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Card Measurements:

  • Old Olive CS:  8-1/8″ x 8-1/4″ (card base) &  1/2″ x 11″ (belly band)  & two pieces 2-1/4″ x 4″
  • Basic white CS:  two pieces 2″ x 3-3/4″
  • Heartwarming Hugs DSP:  two pieces 2-1/4″ x 3-7/8″ & one piece 2-1/4″ x 4″
