Dragonfly Garden Swinging Pendulum Card

Hi Stampers. For our Pals blog hop last week, I shared a swinging pendulum card made using the Birds & Branches bundle. (see that post HERE) In that post, I mentioned that I had done another swinging pendulum card using the Dragonfly Garden bundle. Here it is!

(Above is a 6 second video of it swinging. You can see a complete video of how the card was made on my Facebook Page HERE or an edited version will be on my YouTube channel soon.)

Stampin' Up! Dragonfly Garden pendulum card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

My swinging pendulum card starts with a Mossy Meadow card base, 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5-1/2″. To hold my pendulum, I cut a small strip of Mossy Meadow CS, 1/2″ x 2″, scored at 1/2″, 1″ and 1-1/2″. The two middle pieces were glued together and the two outside flaps were adhered to either side of the inside of the card, at the top, over the score line. A small hole was punched in the part that is glued together and at the top of a 1/4″ x 4″ strip of Window Sheet.

The front of my swinging pendulum card is covered with a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Dandy Garden DSP and a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Basic White CS is adhered in the center of the card. In the center of the card front, I die cut a large circle, using the Layering Circles Dies and a ring was die cut using that circle and a slightly larger scalloped circle with Bumblebee CS. Using the Dragonfly Punch I punched a dragonfly from the Dandy Garden DSP and another from Mossy Meadow CS. The two were then attached to the strip of Window Sheet (one on either side) using mini glue dots. A brad was used to attached the top of the Window Sheet strip to the bracket at the top of the card.

The sentiment, from the Birds and Branches stamp set is stamped onto a 3/4″ x 4″ strip of Basic White CS using Merry Merlot ink. Linen Thread was wrapped around the right side and the Pick A Banner Punch was used to punch the left side. This strip was then adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A blank 4″ x 5-1/4″ Basic White layer is adhered to the back of the card for a handwritten message.

Box of SF Giants Themed Cards

Hi Stampers. As you know, I’m currently on vacation.  This is a box of San Francisco Giants (SF Giants) Thank You and Happy Birthday cards in a gift box that I made for the friend I am staying with.

Stampin' Up! Hat Builder & Playful Alphabet Dies San Francisco Giants Birthday and Thank You cards in a box

This handmade box easily holds three Thank You and three Happy Birthday SF Giants cards with envelopes.

Stampin' Up! Hat Builder & Playful Alphabet Dies San Francisco Giants Birthday and Thank You cards in a box

The SF Giants baseball themed gift box is made in two parts and one slides over the other.

Stampin' Up! Hat Builder & Playful Alphabet Dies San Francisco Giants Birthday and Thank You cards in a box

The card starts with a Basic Black card base 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″, followed by a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Very Vanilla.  Next up is a 1-1/4″ x 5-1/4″ strip of Pumpkin Pie CS and a 1″ x 5-1/4″ strip of Very Vanilla.

Stampin' Up! Hat Builder & Playful Alphabet Dies San Francisco Giants Birthday and Thank You cards in a box

I stamped “thank you” in Memento Black ink onto that Very Vanilla strip, adhered it to the Pumpkin Pie strip and adhered the two the card front using Stampin’ Seal. Using the Hat Builder Dies, I die cut the hat from Basic Black CS and the stars from Basic Black and Pumpkin Pie CS (with Adhesive Sheet on the back). The S & F were die cut from Pumpkin Pie CS (with Adhesive Sheet on the back) using the Playful Alphabet Dies.

Inside this card I stamped the “You’re the Best” sentiment from the Hats Off stamp set in Pumpkin Pie ink.

This card is basically the same, only this time I stamped “Happy Birthday” (from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set) in Memento Black ink.

I placed three stars because I’ve been told (by those more artistic than me) to add those types of elements in odd numbers.

Stampin' Up! Hat Builder & Playful Alphabet Dies San Francisco Giants Birthday and Thank You cards in a box

This time, I stamped this sentiment (from the Lighthearted Lines stamp set) in Pumpkin Pie ink on the inside layer.

Stampin' Up! Hat Builder & Playful Alphabet Dies San Francisco Giants Birthday and Thank You cards in a box

The SF Giants box is decorated with the Hostess Only Pattern Party Designer Series Paper, followed by a 1″ strip of Pumpkin Pie CS. For the focal point I used the Layering Circle Dies to die cut a Basic Black scalloped circle and a Basic White straight circle. To this I added a small baseball cap (die cut with the Hat Builder Dies out of Pumpkin Pie CS) and some elements from the Batter Up! Paper Pumpkin kit. The baseball on top is added using Stampin’ Dimensionals to make it kind of appear as if it’s been it by the bat. (Note: to learn to make the box – watch my YouTube video below).

I think my friend is really going to like these cards.  Might even need to make a set for my daughter, who is also a HUGE SF Giants fan!

From the Garden Pals Blog Hop

Hi Stampers.  Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month, the theme is “Wonderful Cards/Projects from the Garden” where our design team showcase projects from things found in a garden, such as flowers, vegetables, fruits, or even a garden scene. We really hope that you enjoy and will be inspired by them! As you hop from blog to blog, don’t forget to leave comments because we love hearing from you. Once you finish here, you will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Stampin' Up! Birds and Branches horizontal book binding card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I chose to work with the Birds & Branches stamp set with the Birds & More Dies to create a book binding card.

Stampin' Up! Birds and Branches horizontal book binding card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This was a card made during my last FB Live. See video below, from my YouTube channel.

Stampin' Up! Birds and Branches horizontal book binding card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The book binding fold, has a section of the card on the left adhered together, then it opens like a book with the binding (just like it sounds) on the left.

Stampin' Up! Birds and Branches horizontal book binding card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The Mint Macron card base is 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5-1/2″ & 6-3/4″.  It’s folded in half at the 5-1/2″ and the 6-3/4″ score line folds the opposite way. This is followed by So Saffron CS (4″ x 4″ & 1″ x 4″) and then Hand Penned DSP (3-3/4″ x 3-3/4″ & 3/4″ x 3-3/4″).

Stampin' Up! Birds and Branches horizontal book binding card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The focal point is a Basic White circle (cut with the Layering Circle Dies) that has Balmy Blue ink added to it using the Blending Brushes, some leaves die cut in Garden Green CS and then the bird in a nest assembled over that.

Stampin' Up! Birds and Branches horizontal book binding card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

On the left is a bow, made from Pool Party Sheer Ribbon (tied on my bow maker tool – you want one of these) and then the ribbon is adhered on the back of the card front.  The “book binding” is then adhered together sealing the ends of the ribbon between the front and back of the card.

Stampin' Up! Birds and Branches horizontal book binding card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The birds nest is stamped in Crumb Cake ink and then I “thumped” on it with the brush end of the Soft Suede and Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Markers to give it the look of sticks.

Inside my card is a blank 4″ x 4″ piece of Basic White CS.  I know, normally I have something on the inside, this one doesn’t have anything YET….

Pampered Kitty Sympathy Card

Hi Stampers. Recently I was asked to make some pet sympathy cards for a friend. I knew right away that I wanted to use the Pampered Pets Suite. It’s soooo cute and comes with everything – stamps, dies, dsp, twine, elements…

Stampin' Up! Pampered Pets cat banner sympathy card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This Pampered Pets card is VERY basic.  It starts with a Real Red card base, 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. Then, it’s followed by a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Basic Black CS and then a 3-3/4″ x 5″ layer of the Playful Pets DSP.

Proportional Matting for card making by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations - Stampin' Up!

You may find this chart handy to have around when cutting layers.

Stampin' Up! Pampered Pets cat banner sympathy card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Using Real Red ink, stamp the sentiment onto a 1″ x 5-1/4″ strip of Basic White CS and then flag the end using the Triple Banner Punch. Add a few dimensionals to the back of the strip and wrap some of the Playful Pets twine (with one of the little heart trinkets on it) around the banner on the left side. Peel off the backing from the stampin’ dimensionals and adhere it to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Pampered Pets cat banner sympathy card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Inside the card is a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Basic Black CS followed by a 3/4″ x 5″ layer of Basic White with a 3/4″ x 5″ strip of the Playful Pets DSP. As a final there is a cat (from the DSP) lounging on the left side.

Stampin’ Tip: A brother scan-n-cut was used to die cut out the cat.  I actually scanned and cut an entire sheet of the cats and an entire sheet of the dogs and kept the excess in a clear envelope inside the stamp case.

Pansy Patch Sliding Lock Card

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team’s theme is “Great Family Occasions.” While my Pansy Patch sliding lock card is a thank you card (I completely goofed with the theme this month), with a quick change of sentiment it could be a beautiful Mother’s Day card. 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.

2021-2023 Stampin' Up! In Colors - shop with Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Have you seen the new 2021-2023 In Colors?  They are YUMMY!!  Which is your favorite?

Stampin' Up! Sliding Lock Pansies Thank You Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

My Pansy Patch sliding lock 1/4″ and 8-1/2″.  The new Designer Series Paper is called Pansy Patch and will be available in the new Annual Catalog.

Stampin' Up! Sliding Lock Pansies Thank You Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

You will notice that the right side of the card looks like a normal card, but then there is a 2″ flap on the right side.  This flap has a bit of an angle because I measured over 1″ on the top and cut down to the outside corner.

Stampin' Up! Sliding Lock Pansies Thank You Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The stamp set used is called Pansy Patch.  It is a triple stamping technique, photopolymer stamp.  This made stamping the flower easy – I just stamped the base in Highland Heather ink, the detail in Gorgeous Grape ink and the center in Daffodil Delight ink.

Stampin' Up! Sliding Lock Pansies Thank You Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I used the masking technique on the pansy, so that the leaf (inked in Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen ink) appears to be coming from behind the flower.

Stampin' Up! Sliding Lock Pansies Thank You Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For the lock mechanism, I used the soon to retire Classic Label punch to create the track. The retired Word Window punch would work good for this, too.  Going forward, I will have to look for a die to do this with…

Stampin' Up! Sliding Lock Pansies Thank You Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The part that slides back and forth was made using the Double Oval Punch.  I punched two of the scalloped oval punch in Evening Evergreen  CS and one regular oval in Basic White CS.

Stampin' Up! Sliding Lock Pansies Thank You Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

One scalloped oval is on the inside of the card and one is on the outside of the card.

Stampin' Up! Sliding Lock Pansies Thank You Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

A small rectangle, cut from the Foam Adhesive Sheets, to fit into the track is in between them.  You can use Stampin’ Dimensionals, but they are more of a round shape, so the ovals may twist a little.  Will you be giving my Pansy Patch sliding lock card a try?

Stampin' Up! 2021-2023 In Colors Bookmark by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

These 2″ x 5-1/2″ bookmarks were made for my customers, I am mailing them with the new Annual Catalog. Using the Delightful Tag Topper I punched on the top and put a 6″ piece of ribbon through the hole.

Stampin' Up! 2021-2023 In Colors Bookmark by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I stamped  a sample of each of the new inks (using a stamp from the Dressed To Impress stamp set) and used the Dragonflies Punch to punch out a sample of each of the new cardstocks. (Of course, I used adhesive sheet on the backside before punching making them clean and simple to adhere). Note: I haven’t ordered it yet, but there is new ribbon (very similar in style to the one I used) in each of the five new colors! So fun!

Mini Twisted Gatefold Card

Hi Stampers. One of my regular viewers of my Monday Facebook Live class requested that I make this Mini Twisted Gatefold card. Little did she know, how easy it really is to make! (See YouTube video below).

Stampin' Up! Paper Blooms mini twisted gatefold card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts with a Rococo Rose 4-1/4 x 7-1/2″, scored at 2-1/2″ and 5″.  Next, I used my trimmer to score a diagonal line from the upper right to lower left of each of the two side panels.

Stampin' Up! Paper Blooms mini twisted gatefold card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

To cover the card, I have three pieces of DSP that are 2-1/4″ x 4″ (2 of one design and 1 of a coordinating design. I also cut a 2-1/4″ x 4″ piece for the inside panel. Each of the DSP pieces were cut diagonally, so they would fit onto the panels of the card.

Stampin' Up! Paper Blooms mini twisted gatefold card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The center panel has the sentiment, from the In Bloom stamp set, in Night of Navy ink in the center and a flower was stamped in Rococo Rose ink in two opposing corners.

Stampin' Up! Paper Blooms mini twisted gatefold card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The front focal point is made using either punches or layering circle dies.  One circle is in Basic White and it is matted onto a Night of Navy circle that is slightly larger. A (second generation) flower is stamped onto the Basic White circle, then a (full strength) center was stamped onto the flower. As a final touch, a rhinestone was added to the middle of the flower. For further directions, please watch the video below.
