Graduation Gown Card

Welcome. I have a few more Graduation cards for you, this time they are Graduation Gown Cards. There are two because I couldn’t decide between two outside sentiments from the Charming Sentiments Bundle. This card is also featured in my video below – it’s the second card.

Stampin' Up! Charming Sentiments Graduation Gown cards by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

My Graduation Gown Card starts with a standard card base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″.  The front of the gown was created by cutting a piece of Silver Foil 3-3/4″ wide and 4″ tall and a piece of Basic White CS 3-1/4″ wide and 3-1/2″ tall.  Both were cut from the center of the bottom to the upper corners making a triangle.

For the neck opening, I used my paper snips to cut a V in the Basic White CS and put a scrap of Petal Pink CS behind it and then adhered the Basic White to the Silver Foil. The three pieces (now adhered together) were then adhered to my card. Basic Pearl Jewels were added to the Basic White, to look like buttons. You may choose to make a necklace out of tiny pearls, too. Have fun with it!

For the graduation cap, I cut a piece of Pacific Point CS 1-3/4″ x 1-3/4″ and used a sponge dauber to apply Pacific Point ink to the edges. The tassel and pearl were added to the cap and then it’s added to the card front using stampin’ dimensionals.  The diploma is just a small piece of printer paper rolled up and tied with a piece of small red ribbon. Finally, there is the sentiment (from the Charming Sentiments set) stamped in Pacific Point ink onto a scrap of Basic White CS and die cute using the coordinating Sentiment Silhouettes Dies.

Inside my Graduation Gown card is a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Basic White CS. I used the balloon and string from the Penguin Place stamp set and stamped in Pacific Point ink. Another wonderful sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set was stamped in the center in Pacific Point ink.

Scratch-n-Sniff Sweet Strawberries Card

Hi, Stampers. Do you remember scratch-n-sniff? Today’s card I did a DIY scratch-n-sniff technique using the Sweet Strawberries bundle! It smells SO GOOD!

Stampin' Up! Sweet Strawberry Scratch n Sniff card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card can be made with or without the Scratch-n-Sniff technique.  Either way, it starts with a Garden Green card base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. Next is a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Real Red CS. The stamping is done on a 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ layer of Basic White CS.

Stampin' Up! Sweet Strawberry Scratch n Sniff card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I used the Sweet Strawberry stamp set with Real Red ink to stamp the two-step strawberries all over the Basic White layer. (note: I didn’t line all of them up exactly right, but a light Real Red stampin’ blend worked great for touch up!) If you decide to do the Scratch-n-Sniff technique, this is when you do it.

Stampin’ Tip: I mixed some strawberry flavored Kool-Aid with clear embossing powder (one part Kool-aid to two parts embossing powder). Using Versamark ink and the solid strawberry stamp, I stamped right over the top of the existing red strawberries, added the embossing powder mix, and heated with the heat tool.

Stampin' Up! Sweet Strawberry Scratch n Sniff card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Using the Strawberry Builder Punch, I punched out the tops to the strawberries and attached them to the top of each one with a glue dot. Using the Amazing Thanks Dies, I die cut “thanks” out of Basic White CS (with Adhesive Sheet on it) and the outline to “thanks” in Garden Green CS. After they were attached, then they were attached to the card front using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. A red ribbon with a bow was wrapped around the Basic White layer and attached on the back. This layer was then attached to the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

Inside the card is a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Basic White CS. I stamped the sentiment in the center and the strawberry in the lower right corner using Real Red ink. The top to the strawberry and the leaves in the upper left corner were stamped in Garden Green ink. I used the light Shaded Spruce stampin’ blend to color in the leaves and a dark Daffodil Delight stampin’ blend to color the center of the flowers.

Hi Stampers. Welcome to the all new Stampin’ Pretty Pals – Fun Folds – blog hop!  I am sharing with you a Triple Fold with Diamonds fun fold card made using the Sale-A-Bration, Sunshine & Rainbows DSP. I’ve gotten a peek at some of the other projects and I know you are just gonna LOVE our new hop!  (There is a line up posted below).

Stampin' Up! Triple Fold With Diamonds fun fold rainbow card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card started with a Flirty Flamingo card base – 11″ x 5-1/2″ , scored at 1-1/2″ , 4-1/8″ and 6″-3/4″

Stampin' Up! Triple Fold With Diamonds fun fold rainbow card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

It is decorated with the Sunshine & Rainbows DSP (a level 1 Sale-A-Bration freebie). I used three patterns from the same Sunshine & Rainbows DSP pack.

Two pieces of DSP were cut to 1-1/4″ x 5-1/4″. Another pattern was cut to 2-3/8″ x 5-1/4″.  The third piece is 4″ x 5-1/4″.

This second card is made the same way, just using different patterns out of the Sunshine & Rainbows DSP.

These bolder patterns, give a different look to the card.

I used the Timeless Tropical stamp set to decorate the Basic White “diamonds”.  I thought it paired well with the Sunshine & Rainbows DSP and the images fit on the squares.

For the inside Basic White panel of the card I stamped using the Rainbows of Happiness stamp set. (This is the stamp set designed to go with the Sunshine & Rainbows DSP.)

Simple Slider Card

Hi Stampers. Wednesday, I made a simple slider card for the Pals Blog Hop using the Awesome Otters Sale-A-Bration stamp set. CLICK HERE to see that post.

Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration 2022 Rainbow of Happiness simple slider card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Today’s card is also a simple slider card, but this time it’s landscaped orientation instead of portrait.

Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration 2022 Rainbow of Happiness simple slider card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card was made using the Sunshine & Rainbows DSP. (This is another level 1 Sale-A-Bration item – FREE with a $50 purchase).

Stampin’ Tip: Did you know that the new Cloud Punch will punch out the clouds in this DSP?

Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration 2022 Rainbow of Happiness simple slider card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

In the video tutorial, I show you how to use the stitched rectangle die to extend the length and make the opening larger than the die.

Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration 2022 Rainbow of Happiness simple slider card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

One of the sheets in the Sunshine & Rainbows DSP is a sheet of rainbows – like the one on the front of the card (I fussy cut it out). On the edges are some that are cut off and not complete. I fussy cut two of those out and adhered them inside the card.

Friendly Hello Birthday Gift Card

Hi Stampers. You’ve heard me mention Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration 2022 and today I’m going to actually use one of those FREE rewards you can earn!  The Friendly Hello Bundle is a Level 2 reward, meaning you can get the Friendly Hello Stamp Set and the Friendly Hello 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper FREE by spending $100.

Stampin' Up! Friendly Hello handmade birthday card with gift card pocket by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For this card, I made a magnetic closure card that has a pocket for a gift card on the inside.  This card is similar to a Christmas Card version I shared with you on Christmas Eve – CLICK HERE to see that card.

Stampin' Up! Friendly Hello handmade birthday card with gift card pocket by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card has an arm that comes across from the right side and has a mini magnet to attach it to the front of the card on the left.  The arm is 1-1/4″ x 5″ and is decorated with a 1″ x 5″ strip of the Friendly Hello DSP. Over that is are two labels – punched out of Fresh Freesia & Basic White CS using the Label Me Lovely Punch.

Stampin' Up! Friendly Hello handmade birthday card with gift card pocket by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Using the Friendly Hello stamp set, I stamped the flower, in Fresh Freesia ink, onto the Basic White label. The flower was then colored with the Stampin’ Blends and a Fresh Freesia jewel was added to the center of the flower and a few Brushed Brass Butterflies were also added. Next, the Fresh Freesia label was cut in half horizontally and attached to the back of the Basic White CS with a little color showing above and below the Basic White label.

Stampin' Up! Friendly Hello handmade birthday card with gift card pocket by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Inside the card you can see the pocket I made for the gift card. The DSP was adhered to that section of the card, then a 1/2 circle was cut out (giving access to the gift card) using a punch (or layering circle dies). The sentiment, from the Friendly Hello stamp set was stamped in Fresh Freesia ink. For more complete instructions, please view the video below.
