Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop

Hi Stampers.

Welcome to the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop for March 2017. This month our theme is “SaleABration”, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don’t want to miss any of them.  Regardless if you started here or came from another blog, you want to check out all the fun ideas.  I have included the entire blog hop line up (featuring 23 Stampin’ good ideas!) in case you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects.

One of my favorite 2017 SaleABration items was recently added.  Have you seen the new 6″ x 6″ glimmer paper assortment pack?  (You can get your very own pack by ordering $50 in Stampin’ Up! product during SaleABration!) It’s a fabulous pack 12 with 4 of each fun of 3 spring colors – Mint Macron, Sweet Sugarplum & Bermuda Bay.

I recently had someone ask me to build them a “fairy card in a box” and she wanted LOTS OF GLITTER!  Well, one look at this new glimmer paper and I knew they would be perfect!

I used my basic card in a box card base design (found here) using Bermuda Bay card stock and Bermuda Bay glimmer paper and used Whisper White as my stamping layer of card stock.  The fairy dust is stamped in Bermuda Bay ink using the swirl from the Stampin’ Up! Star of Light stamp set.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Fairy Celebration stamp set.  I stamped onto Whisper White card stock and fussy cut them out using my paper snips.  This allowed me to clip off the cherries, which didn’t really fit with my design.  I then colored them with my Stampin’ Up! markers.  I cut out additional fairies and unicorn with my Silhouette Cameo using Stampin’ Up! glimmer paper (Dazzling Diamonds, Sweet Sugarplum, Mint Macron and Bermuda Bay).

For the side panels I used the Stampin ‘Up! Balloon Adventures and my computer/printer.  The customer asked for a specific saying on one panel and I didn’t have a stamp to match.  So, I created it on my computer using the RGB codes for Stampin’ Up! colors and printed it onto Whisper White card stock and cut it to size.

Spring has Sprung Pals Blog Hop

Stampin' Up! Pals Blog hop badge

Hi Stampers.

Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for March 2017. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our 2017 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month we are featuring Spring or Spring related projects. We hope you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.

If you have followed my blog much at all, you know that I love to do these card in a box explosion boxes.  In honor of Spring and our Spring has Sprung Blog Hop – I have made a Easter card.  This card features the Stampin’ Up! Easter Message stamp set.

Stampin' Up! Easter Message card in a box pop up explosion box made by Queen B Creations I used my basic card in a box card base design (found here) using Crumb Cake and Elegant Eggplant card stock and used Very Vanilla as my stamping layer of card stock.  I stamped in in Memento black, Garden Green and Elegant Eggplant ink.

I colored the cross and flowers using my Stampin’ Up! Many Marvelous Markers.  The flowers, palm frond and cross were all fussy cut by hand using my Stampin’ Up! paper snips.

Stampin’ Tip:  When fussy cutting, keep your scissors in a comfortable forward position and turn the paper into the scissors, rather than turning the scissors around the paper.  You get more control this way.Stampin' Up! Easter Message card in a box pop up explosion box made by Queen B Creations

The cross is adhered to the back of the card with stampin’ dimensionals and the flowers and palm frond are adhered to the middle cross members with glue dots.  The Happy Easter sentiment is adhered with glue dots and two small strips of acetate.Stampin' Up! Easter Message card in a box pop up explosion box made by Queen B Creations

I love that these cards pop up for display and then fold flat for mailing.  A custom envelope can be made for this card with the Envelope Punch Board (5 1/2″ x 6″ envelope, 9 1/4″ square of DSP, first score at 4 3/8″).

Hey, Chick, It’s Sale-a-Bration!

Hi Stampers, Happy Friday!  I just love weekends.  It’s time to spend time with my husband and my stamps :-).  Today I wanted to share with you another stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! 2017 Sale-a-bration offerings.  I’m from Petaluma, CA – which is often referred to as the  Egg Basket of the World, so this has been a popular Sale-a-bration option in my hometown classes.  It’s so cute, I’m guessing this will be one of the stamp sets they run out of before Sale-a-bration is over.  Place your $50 order and get yours for FREE! (It’s not available for purchase.)

Stampin' Up! 2017 Sale-a-bration Hey Chick handmade card by Queen B Creations

This card starts with a Tangelo Twist card base, 8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″.  I then embossed a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Sahara Sand card stock with the Woodgrain Textured Embossing folder in the Big Shot, which was then adhered to the card base with snail adhesive.  I then stamped the chicken and the “hey, chick” sentiment in memento black ink onto Very Vanilla card stock.  I cut out the sentiment with the large oval punch and the chicken with one of the circle framelits from the layering circles framelit set in the Big Shot.  I sponged the edge of the circle with Crushed Curry ink with a stampin’ sponge.  I used a .75″ x 2″ strip of regal DSP paper stack and a .5″ x 2″ strip of Crushed Curry card stock to make the little flags for behind the chicken.  I cut out a scalloped oval with the scalloped oval punch and layered it behind the sentiment.  The sentiment and chicken were then attached to the card front with stampin’ dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! 2017 Sale-a-bration Hey Chick handmade card by Queen B CreationsFor the inside of this card I stamped onto a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Very Vanilla card stock with memento black ink and sponged the edges of the layer with Crushed Curry ink and a stampin’ spnoge before adhering it to the card with snail adhesive.  This was a quick and easy, super cute card and the class members loved it!  I hope you use the links below to order the product needed and make your own Hey, Chick card!

Global Design Project Winged Creatures

Hi Stampers. Happy Sunday, I hope you are having a blessed day!  I’m back today with another challenge.  Today’s challenge is a theme.  The folks over at Global Design Project have challenged us with a theme: Winged Creatures.  In looking through my stamps, I have many creatures with wings.  I settled on Stampin’ Up!s Fairy Celebration.  I love this stamp set, but haven’t used it much. This was the perfect push to get me to use it!

Global Design Project Theme: Winged Creatures

Here is the card I created with my “winged creature”:
Stampin' Up! Fairy Celebration card in a box pop up explosion card by Queen B CreationsTo decorate the box, I used Cherry Cobbler Background Designer Series Paper and then stamped onto a Whisper White layer for each flap.  I used the fairy on the cherry branch for the rear panel and colored it in with the many marvelous markers.  I stamped the other fairies from the Stampin’ Up! Fairy Celebration stamp set onto Whisper White card stock and colored them in with the many marvelous markers and then cut them out with the paper snips. I mounted those fairies on small strips of acetate to attach them to the cross members in the middle of the box.  I also punched out a few small flowers with the (retired) itty bitty accents punch pack and the DSP.  I mounted those onto acetate strips with glue dots and attached them to the cross members with glue dots.  I added a basic rhinestone to the center of each flower for a little more sparkle. The front flap was stamped with stamps from the Fairy Celebration set in Basic Back ink and accented with a few Basic Rhinestone jewels.  For the flap on the right, I used a sentiment from the Happy Happenings stamp set and punched out some confetti with the Sprinkles Punch using Cherry Cobbler card stock.  The confetti was attached using the fine-tip glue pen.

Fairy Celebration card in a box pop up explosion card by Queen B CreationsFor the flap on the left, I used a sentiment from the (retired) Remembering Your Birthday stamp set and punched out some confetti with the Sprinkles Punch using Cherry Cobbler card stock.  The confetti was attached using the fine-tip glue pen.

To fill in a little more in the middle pop up section, I stamped some flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Wild About Flowers stamp set using Daffodil Delight  and Wild Wasabi ink.  I also punched some butterflies out of Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper with the bitty butterfly punch.  I also used a two way glue pen and dazzling diamonds glitter to the fairy wings and some of the larger flowers.

This card ends up being approx 5.5″ x 6″ when folded flat.  I used the same Designer Series Paper and made a custom, made to fit, envelope with the Stampin’ Up! Envelope Punch Board.

If you’d like to try your had at making this card yourself.  The card in a box pattern (in PDF format) click here for PDF and  videos I made on how to make this card and envelope can be found on this prior post – click here.  Links to the products I used is below.  If you are ever in need of a custom made card, made by someone else, I would hope you would consider my Etsy store.

Happy Stamping,
