Sneak Peek Blog Hop

The-Remarkable-Inkbig-Blog-HopHi Stampers.  Happy Mother’s Day and Welcome to the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop for May 2017. This month our theme is sneak peek.  We are showcasing items that are available in the 2017-2018 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog starting on June 1st.   That’s coming up quickly – hopefully you already have your hot little hands on one of these awesome new catalogs, but if you don’t (and don’t already have a demonstrator) I have one ready to mail to you! Just ask – they are FREE and full of ideas!

You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – Queen B Creations or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If 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.

Stampin' Up! Crafting Forever in Berry Burst and Powder Pink (new in-colors) New Catalog Sneak Peek by Queen B CreationsWhen I saw the new catalog I KNEW I had to have this fun new stamp set called Crafting Forever.  It’s adorable and I can see myself using it a lot to make cards for my crafty friends.  The card also features two new “in-colors” – Berry Burst and Powder Pink.

Stampin' Up! Crafting Forever in Berry Burst and Powder Pink (new in-colors) New Catalog Sneak Peek by Queen B CreationsThe card starts with a Berry Burst card base (8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″), followed by a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of powder pink card stock and then a 4.75″ x 3.5″ layer of Whisper White. I stamped onto the Whisper White layer with Berry Burst ink and sponged it around the edges and sponged it on the bottom to form the surface these cute craft supplies are sitting on.  I cut two 1/2″ strips of card stock and used my triple banner punch to flag the ends and added a few rhinestone basic jewels for some bling and to fill in the blank space above.

Stampin’ Tip: The “stamp” in the front that says “made with love” was stamped first.  I then stamped it again onto a post it note and cut it out and put it over the stamp on my card. I then stamped the pot of brushes and removed the post it note.  This makes the stamp appear to be in the foreground.  It’s called the “masking technique”.

Stampin' Up! Crafting Forever in Berry Burst and Powder Pink (new in-colors) New Catalog Sneak Peek by Queen B CreationsI followed it up with a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White card stock on the inside and stamped with Berry Burst again.  (I know some people shy away from the outline stamps that appear to need to be colored in – but this quick and easy card shows you that they don’t really need to be colored in.)

I have included a list of supplies used below.  Again, these are available to purchase from me (or any Stampin’ Up! demonstrator) as of June 1st.  As the card says “Do something creative every day”.  I do and it’s great for my mental health!!

Thanks for taking part in our blog hop, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don’t want to miss. Remember that currently you are at my blog – Queen B Creations, so check the blog hop line up list to see who is next in the list.



Happy Stamping,

Stepped Up Pals Blog Hop

stampin up stampin pretty pals blog hop badge

Hi Stampers.

Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for May 2017. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our 2017 Blog Hop monthly themes. This month we are featuring projects that are “stepped up” by using textures or fun techniques. We hMope to provide you with lots of ideas and that 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 me at all, you know that my version of “stepped up” usually means some sort of fancy fold.  I just love this baby dresser made with the soon to retire “Something for Baby” stamp set by Stampin’ Up!  I’ve done this card in the past with Pink Pirouette and Melon Mambo and also with Sky Blue and Marina Mist.  Someone asked me today for a baby card that was gender neutral.  So I made this card with Pear Pizzazz and Wild Wasabi.

Stampin' Up! Something for Baby - Baby Dresser card by Queen B CreationsI have a YouTube video and a PDF tutorial of how to make this card on a prior post.  You can see that HERE.

Stampin' Up! Something for Baby - Baby Dresser card by Queen B CreationsOn the back of the card I attached a 2.5″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White card stock so that you can write a note to the recipient of the card.  It will fold up and fit into a standard A2 envelope.

Here is another version of the baby dresser card using Pink Pirouette and Flirty Flamingo.  I encourage you to get out your Stamps, Paper and Ink and “step it up”!

Sorry You’re Leaving Blog Hop

Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop BadgeHi Stampers.  Today I am participating in a blog hop for Global Stamping Friends.  We are saying “Sorry you are leaving to our favorite items from the 2016-2017 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. I’m featuring two things I will miss in this post – the Stampin’ Up! Kinda Eclectic stamp set and the Elegant Butterfly punch.

Stampin' Up! Kinda Eclectic hand stamped card for global stamping friends blog hop by Queen B Creations This card starts out with a Chocolate Chip card base, 8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″, followed by a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Very Vanilla card stock.  I matched this card with Crumb Cake medium envelope, onto which I stamped to make it match the card.Stampin' Up! Kinda Eclectic hand stamped card for global stamping friends blog hop by Queen B CreationsThe sunburst (my favorite image from this set – so versatile!!! ) is stamped in Daffodil Delight ink.  The leaves were stamped onto the card and onto the envelope in Wild Wasabi ink.  The dots were stamped in Peekaboo Peach ink and the sentiment was stamped in Chocolate Chip ink.
Stampin' Up! Kinda Eclectic hand stamped card for global stamping friends blog hop by Queen B CreationsI stamped the butterfly in Peekaboo Peach ink onto a scrap of Very Vanilla card stock and punched it out using the Elegant Butterfly punch and adhered it with two glue dots in the center of the body.  After adhering it to the card, I added a few basic rhinestone jewels and lifted the wings a bit to make it appear in flight.
Stampin' Up! Kinda Eclectic hand stamped card for global stamping friends blog hop by Queen B CreationsThe interior of the card is lined with a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Very Vanilla card stock.  I stamped the leaves in the upper left and lower right corner in Wild Wasabi ink.  I then stamped the butterfly in Peekaboo Peach ink and used my Basic Black stampin’ write marker to create dots that appear to be a flight trail.

I hope my card inspires you to get out your stamps and ink and get creating!  If you are in the United States and are in need of a demonstrator to teach you techniques be sure to email me ASAP!  I’d love to be your constant supply of ideas and support in this wonderful hobby! (Note: all my customers are in progress of getting their hot little hands on our new Stampin’ Up! Annual catalog and idea book.  Contact me to get yours!)  A list of supplies used with links to my online store have been provided for you below.  Enjoy our hop!

Bloomin’ Heart Wedding

Hi Stampers.  Happy May Day!  Today is May first, that means Spring has Sprung and that means wedding season is right around the corner!  I’ve started working on some wedding cards to add to my Etsy shop.  The Stampin’ Up! Bloomin’ Heart Thinlit Die lends itself perfectly to weddings.

Stampin' Up! Bloomin' Heart White Wedding Card with Glimmer Paper by Queen B Creations

This card starts out with a Whisper White card base (using the Thick Whisper White – this is the new 80lb Whisper White – it’s great for card bases) 8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″.  Next us is a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Dazzling Diamonds card stock.  I used the Stampin’ Up! Blooming Heart Thinlit Die to cut the heart out of a 5″ x 3.75″ layer of Shimmery Whisper White card stock (this has a really pretty shimmer to the card stock).  I used the big shot die brush to remove all the small pieces from the heart and inset it back into it’s frame and adhered the Shimmery White layer on top of the Dazzling Diamonds layer using stampin’ dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Bloomin' Heart White Wedding Card with Glimmer Paper by Queen B Creations

Onto a 1″ x 3″ strip of Shimmery White card stock, I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Big News stamp set (retired) in Vesamark ink and used silver stampin’ emboss powder and heated it with my heat tool. I matted that with a 1.25″ x 3.25″ strip of Silver Foil card stock and adhered the two to the front of the card.  I then added Rhinestones to the middle of the flowers.

On the interior of the card, I stamped the flowers from the Bloomin’ Love stamp set in Smokey Slate ink.  It came out simple yet very elegant.  I love it!

Hey, Chick

Hi Stampers.  Today is an exciting day in our home town.  It’s the Annual Butter & Eggs Day Parade & Festival in Petaluma, California.  Petaluma, California used to be known as the “egg basket of the world” 100 years ago and they still celebrate it today.  This made me want to break out my recently retired “Hey Chick” stamp set from this years Sale A Bration.

Stampin' Up! 2017 Sale A Bration Hey Chick handmade card by Queen B Creations

This card starts out with a Tangerine Tango card base 8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″.  I then stamped the Hardwood background stamp onto a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Crumb Cake card stock with Crumb Cake ink.  I adhered a 1.25″ x 4″ strip of Designer Series Paper across the middle of this layer and then a .5″ x 3.5″ strip of Tangerine Tango card stock with a flag cut on the end with Paper Snips.  Onto this strip I stamped the Hey, Check sentiment in Memento Black ink.  I then stamped the chicken in Memento Black ink onto Very Vanilla card stock and cut them out with different size circles with the layering circles framelit dies.  I adhered the circles to the Crumb Cake layer before adhering it to the card base.  I did this so I could have them hang of the edge a bit and be able to trim off the excess with my paper snips from the back side.  I colored the chickens hair, beak and legs with Stampin’ Write Markers.

Stampin' Up! 2017 Sale A Bration Hey Chick handmade card by Queen B Creations

For the interior of the card I used a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Very Vanilla card stock with Crushed Curry ink sponged on the edges.  I stamped the egg and the sentiment in Memento Black ink in the middle of this layer.  Supplies used are listed below.

I hope you have something planned for the day – enjoy your weekend!
