Honey Bee Thank You

Hi Stampers. Happy Monday!  I’m back with another Honey Bee card!  Do you love Monday’s?  I do!  I have the BEST JOB EVER and I get a fresh start and a burst of energy each and every Monday.  I’m always looking for people who want to do a job they love and join my Creative Royalty team.  Our team has hobby and business demos on it – all a welcome – no strings attached!

Stampin' Up! Honey Bee Bundle Detailed Bee Dies handmade thank you card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Today’s card is similar to last Friday’s card in that I used the Honey Bee bundle. Instead of a shaker card, this is a regular card using lots of layers. The sentiment is heat embossed in Gold and a few enamel dots were added to make it “pop” and draw your eye to it.

I wanted a richer look for this card, so I used a Basic Black card base, followed by layers of Goil Foil Paper and the Golden Honey Specialty DSP.  I love this DSP and it was FREE!  Apparently, alot of other people loved it too, because we have run out, twice.  Sale-A-Bration items are always “while supplies last” so if you see something you love – it’s best to get yours early! The hive is popped up on dimensionals and swarming with honey bees.

Stampin’ Tip:  To save you money on your stampin’ supplies, I suggest die cutting shapes out of the center of the Gold Foil Paper.  In this example, you could cut the larger gold layer, then die cut the next gold layer out of the middle of the first one.  You could then die cut the honeycomb die cuts out of the middle of the that smaller layer. Once you cover it up with the DSP layer, you won’t see any voids in the foil paper. While it looks like alot of foil paper was used but, there is only one 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece and it’s all cut from that. It also helps keep the weight low, so it could save you on postage, too.

Inside the card, in addition to stamping the sentiment and the honey bee, I have added a strip of DSP and a few of the hexagons that fell out of the honeycomb die cut used on the front of the card.

Good Morning Magnolia – Whitewash Technique

Hi Stampers.  This week has been a doozy!  It’s all good, but it’s making me feel more behind than usual. LOL Today I want to share with you the whitewash technique.

Good Morning Magnolia whitewash technique over heat embossing by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts with a crumb cake card base.  I heat embossed the magnolias from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set in gold directly onto the card base.

Next, I colored the magnolias using the Aqua Painter and the White Stamp Pad / Refill. A little Petal Pink was added to the center of the magnolias using a sponge dauber.

The Thanks is stamped in Mossy Meadow ink onto a Very Vanilla stitched oval. A Crumb Cake oval was cut using the Layering Oval Dies and the edges were sponged using a sponge dauber with Crumb Cake ink.

The inside is lined with a layer of Very Vanilla.  I stamped the small flower in the lower corner using Crumb Cake ink and the sentiment in Mossy Meadow ink.  I have included a full video tutorial complete with all instructions and measurements.  I hope you give it a try!

Bella & Friends Milk Bones

Hi Stampers. Are you a dog lover?  I just love my little Sophie.  Sophie is a 3 year old Poodle / Terrier mix.  We got her when she was just 6 weeks old (and visited her from the time she was born). When I worked outside the home, she went to work with me.  Now that I work from home, she’s my constant companion in the studio!

When we moved to Idaho, I knew I had to find a place to have her groomed. A quick check on yelp and I found a place called the Pampered Pooch – that sounded like the perfect fit, and it was!!  They expanded and moved across town to become A Box Of Barks Daycare, Resort & Spa.  Sophie loves it there!  She gets groomed there and stayed a few days while we went on vacation.

I have since made several batches of treats for them to hand out – first for advertising and then to give to doggies who came to have their picture taken with Santa.  These are so fun to make and everyone loved them!

Stampin' Up! Bella & Friends milk bone gift bag for dog by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

We have at least two great stamps set that work for making these cute bag toppers.  Bella & Friends & a new set called Happy Tails.  These “thank you” ones and the Christmas ones above both use Bella & Friends.

Stampin' Up! Bella & Friends milk bone gift bag for dog by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I got the small resealable bags at a big box store and made the topper to fit the image or business card I was working with.  I started with my design (or the business card) and then increased the size by 1/4″ and then doubled the size to allow for it to fold over the top and be stapled to the bag. I stapled before attaching my image so the image layer would cover up the staples.

Year-End Closeouts & Star of Light Thank You

Stampin' Up! 2018 Year end Closeouts!

Hi Stampers. Today Stampin’ Up! is announcing the Year-end Closeouts!  Today we will know what is retiring from the 2018 Holiday Catalog. Many items will be discounted and all are “While Supplies Last”.  I suggest you go take a look now to be sure that you get the items you want.

Stampin' Up! Star of Light stamp set & Starlight Thinlit Dies with Thankful Thoughts Thank You card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Today’s card is super simple. I was brought up to believe that a hand written thank you note was a MUST. But, sometimes we are short on time.  This card is easy to mass produce!  It starts out with a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ card base, scored at 4 1/4″. Next is a 5 1/4″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the stardust from the Star of Light stamp set in Night of Navy ink, twice. The thank you sentiment is from the Thankful Thoughts stamp set and is also stamped in Night of Navy ink. The I then die-cut the star from the coordinating Starlight Thinlit dies and mounted it on stampin’ dimensionals.  I finished it off by adding a rhinestone to the middle of the star.  Like I said – super simple.

Now what are you doing still here?  Go check out that sale before all the good items are gone! LOL

Layering Alphabet Thanks Card

Hi Stampers. I am writing you from my hotel room in Miami as we get ready to board the cruise ship today for a week long cruise to the western Caribbean. (Royal Caribbean Allure of the Seas). We traded the cold of Idaho for the 85 degree weather in Miami and beyond. This makes me thankful for things in my life. One of those things is my job and it’s YOU that make that possible by supporting me in my business. So today’s thank you card is for you…

Stampin' Up! Layering Alphabet dies handmade thank you / thanks card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts with a thick Very Vanilla card base, 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″. I then used the big shot and the layering alphabet frame lit dies to cut the word “thanks” one letter at a time. The main die in this set that holds each letter has little notches on it to ensure that your letter is centered so each one is in the same spot, making them easy to line up on the card front.

(Note: if you watch the video below you will see that my die broke during my facebook live. Turns out it was defective and I had a new one from Stampin’ Up! in my mailbox in less than a week. I LOVE this company!!!)

Stampin' Up! Layering Alphabet dies handmade thank you / thanks card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations The colors I used represent “fall” to me. The colors left to right are: Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Old Olive, Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze. I then used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the letters to the card base, starting with the letter “s” and ending with the letter “t”.

Stampin' Up! Layering Alphabet dies handmade thank you / thanks card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B CreationsI chose to add a splash of color to the inside of the card by adhering a 4” x 5-1/4” layer of Cajun Craze CS. Then I stamped the sentiment, from the All Things Thanks stamp set, in Cajun Craze ink onto a 3-3/4” x 5” layer of Very Vanilla CS. After I made sure my stamping was good, I adhered the Very Vanilla CS over the Cajun Craze CS on the inside of card. (I always stamp before adhering in case I need to flip it over and try again – LOL).

Here is my Facebook Live showing how to use these dies:

I hope this post encourages you to thank someone in your life for supporting you with a handmade card, the way that I am thanking you for supporting me.

Have a great week!
