Hello Timeless Tropical

Hi Stampers, who’s ready to go somewhere tropical?  I am!!  Unfortunately, we are all on lock down, so I had to settle for virtual travel via the Timeless Tropical stamp set.

Stampin' Up! Timeless Tropical tropical weave hello blends card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts with an Old Olive card base. A layer of Pear Pizazz was dry embossed using the recently retired Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  Then it was adhered to the card base using Stampin’ Seal.

The flower was heat embossed with Versamark ink and Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and then colored using the stampin’ blends.  Calypso Coaral ink was used to stamp the sentiment.  This layer was then attached with stampin’ dimensionals.

Inside the card is a layer of Whisper White.  The sentiment was stamped in Calypso Coral ink. Next, the pineapple was inked using the brush end of the Stampin’ Write Markers.

Stampin’ Tip:  The pineapple was inked with the brush end of the Old Olive and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Markers.  Next, I used the brush end of the Soft Suede Stampin’ Write marker to tap a little bit of ink over the Daffodil Delight to help it look more realistic. This technique is called “thumping”.

First Frost Bouquet

Hi Stampers. Today’s card features the First Frost Bundle, which is another very pretty set retiring at the end of this month.  🙁

Stampin' Up! First Frost Frosted Bouquet Winter card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts with a Gorgeous Grape card base and then a layer of watercolor paper.  I used Balmy Blue ink and the Aqua Painter to create this watercolor wash technique for the background.  Next, I stamped a few of the greenery and then did lots of layering of die-cuts over the top of that.

Stampin' Up! First Frost Frosted Bouquet Winter card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The sentiment, from First Frost, was stamped in Gorgeous Grape ink onto a stitched oval and backed with a Gorgeous Grape scalloped oval.  I chose to do springs in Balmy Blue and Gorgeous Grape CS to pop out form behind the ovals.

All layers were placed over a strip of 3/8″ silver edge ribbon using stampin’ dimensionals.  Finally I added the flowers to the front of the card too.  The First Frost flowers were stamped in Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather inks and die cut using the coordinating, Frosted Bouquet, dies.

PPP Blog Hop My Wonderful Family

Hi Stampers.  It’s time for another Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop.  To be honest, this months kit didn’t thrill me until I started thinking of alternatives.  Then I got a few ideas and couldn’t pick just one.  So today I have three cards for you!

Stampin' Up! My Wonderful Family Paper Pumpkin May 2020 Alternatives by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The original April 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit was OK.  It made some nice cards.  But, I think I’m really getting into this Paper Pumpkin alternative ideas thing!

Stampin' Up! My Wonderful Family Paper Pumpkin May 2020 Alternatives by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

My first thought was to turn that tree (from this months Paper Pumpkin kit) on it’s side and made it into a branch.  I used the 1-1/8″ scallop circle punch and made a birds nest to set the little birdie into.

Stampin' Up! My Wonderful Family Paper Pumpkin May 2020 Alternatives by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For the inside of this card, I just used the tree top to stamp leaves in the two corners.  Nice and simple.

Stampin' Up! My Wonderful Family Paper Pumpkin May 2020 Alternatives by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This one, I thought was kind of fun.  I made a hedgehog by stamping the tree leaves onto a circle of Crumb Cake CS in Soft Suede ink.  His face is the heart die from the Support Ribbon Dies. A little Soft Suede ink was sponged on the edges and two 1/4″ circles were used for his eyes. Stampin’ Up!s 1/2″ punch was used to make the feet and the leaf punch made his ears.  The grass under his feet is the tree trunk stamp, from the Paper Pumpkin kit, with Pear Pizzaz ink.

Stampin' Up! My Wonderful Family Paper Pumpkin May 2020 Alternatives by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Inside the card, I used the tree trunk and leaves for their intended purposes and added the sentiment.

My third card uses the tree leaves again, only this time I used So Saffron, Soft Sea Foam and Petal Pink inks to just create a background to frame the sentiment.

Inside is another sentiment and a touch of the leaves from the front. Again, nice and simple.  I hope you like my cards.  Use this next button to follow along on the hop for more inspiration from our talented team of demonstrators!

Hopefully, you are already subscribed.  The May Paper Pumpkin will feature some of the new 2020-2022 In-Colors and has already sold out!   What does this mean?

  • Anyone who completed a new subscription or who was in active status before kits sold out will still receive a kit.
  • Current subscribers can still log in and manage their accounts; however, they will NOT be able to add additional kits to their May subscription.
  • Subscribers in canceled or suspended status will still be able to reactivate their subscription but will be activated for the JUNE subscription period; meaning they will not receive the May kit.
  • New subscriptions (for June’s kit) will reopen on May 11, 2020. We appreciate your patience as we adjust to unprecedented numbers of new Paper Pumpkin subscribers.

On To Adventure

Hi Stampers, do you have some friends or family who are “On To Adventure” in retirement?  If they are headed somewhere tropical, I may have just the card!  This fun fold card features the corner tuck technique.

Stampin' Up! On To Adventure corner tuck fold technique retirement card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts with an Old Olive base and then a beach scene was made using Balmy Blue and Crumb Cake CS.  The palm trees, from the Timeless Tropical stamp set, were inked using Stampin’ Write Markers.

Stampin' Up! On To Adventure corner tuck fold technique retirement card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The little people are from the On To Adventure stamp set and colored using the Stampin’ Blends and cut out using my Brother Scan-n-Cut. <– click the link to see which one I have, on Amazon

Stampin' Up! On To Adventure corner tuck fold technique retirement card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Inside the card, my layer is the same size as the beach scene layer on the front of the card, so that it would not show when closed.  The corner is a triangle that has been dry embossed and attached with mini dimensionals on the very edges, leaving an area to tuck the corner in.  You can see more about how this card was made by watching the video tutorial below.

This Little Piggy is in Quarantine

Hi Stampers, how is your quarantine going? I have spent most of it making cards and helping my husband with his new laser engraving machine.  When my friend Lorri Heiling made a card using This Little Piggy and adding a face mask to it – I knew I just HAD to try it!

Stampin' Up! This Little Piggy stayed home face mask quarantine card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I started with a Balmy Blue card base.  This color blue looked perfect for the sky on a sunny day. One of the dies from the Delicate Lace Edgelit Dies looked like the top of a fancy fence to me and the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper has this pretty green that looked like grass.

Stampin' Up! This Little Piggy stayed home face mask quarantine card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I stamped the piggy in quarantine (from the This Little Piggy stamp set) in Basic Gray ink onto Whisper White CS and colored him with the Petal Pink stampin’ blends. Then I die cut that with a circle die and the Petal Pink CS with a scalloped circle die.  To look like sky and grass, I cut a stamping sponge into wedges and sponged some Seaside Spray ink above and Old Olive ink below the pig. The “stayed home.” was typed on my computer and printed on Whisper White CS and punched out using the Classic Label punch.  Download the PDF by clicking HERE.

Next, I stamped the head of the piggy in quarantine onto a scrap of Whisper White CS and fussy cut it out using paper snips. A tiny piece of Whisper White CS with a few score lines in it (from the Simply Scored tool) make the face mask and Whisper White Baker’s Twine make the straps.

Stampin' Up! This Little Piggy stayed home face mask quarantine card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I always make the inside of the card coordinate with the outside.  This card was no different.  Seaside Spray sponged on the top and Old Olive sponged on the bottom and a little piggy stamped in the corner.

This little piggy was from the same stamp set and colored with the stampin’ blends.  I’m just tickled pink with how it came out.  I even put some on Etsy for sale. 🙂  If you want more directions on how to make this card, please watch the YouTube video below.  Don’t forget to subscribe to my channel while you are there.
