Capturing Smiles!

Capturing Smiles! 0

Hi Everyone --

Susan Weinroth here with you today to share a couple of cards that I whipped up with favorite Queen & Co. product.



"You Captured My Heart" is the first card that I created -- I love the ease of the foam front circle card and coordinating die.

)

I used lots of pink to create a monotone card and shakerbox with a simple multi-heart punch background.



For my second card -- "You Make Me Smile" -- I was able to use my very favorite camera die (fron the Picture Perfect Kit).



The camera die cut shape coordinates well with the "smile" sentiment!



Thanks so much for stopping by to take a peek at what I've been up to!

Star Shaker Kit 2 Ways!

Star Shaker Kit 2 Ways! 0

Hello there!  It's Laurie Willison here with a couple of cards using the Star Shaker Card Kit  from Queen and Company, to make 2 cards.
This first card uses the negatives from the foam front....
Queen and Co
I did a navy wash on watercolor paper and added that to a kraft card base.  Next, I added the stars and removed the the top layer and then used the baby beads to cover each of the adhesive stars.  I added in a simple sentiment die cut to finish of the card.
Next, I used the shaker kit.  I kept them nice and simple by adding in the Tiny Bubbles to fill each star....
Queen and Co
I popped a die cut sentiment up on fun foam to complete the card.  Easy peasy!
Thanks so much for coming by today!  Have a great day!

Hi there!  Laurie Schmidlin here with a couple of fun and bright cards to share with you!

I absolutely love color!  That is one of my favorite things about Queen & Co...all the beautiful colors!

I created a shaker card using the Balloons Shaker Kit and Balloons Card Front Die.  My favorite part about creating shaker cards is adding the toppings!  I added three different kinds to the balloons:  Pops, Fimo Fun, & Tiny Bubbles.

Supplies:  Balloons Shaker Kit, Balloons Card Front Die, Pops Topping Set, Tiny Bubbles Topping Set, Fimo Fun Topping Set

 



My next card is a clean and simple card with pops of bright, cheerful colors.  I started by die cutting the film strip (from the Say Cheese Shaped Shaker set).  I then added some Red and Yellow Wallflowers and a couple of Yellow Sparklers.  I grounded the die cut sentiment by adding a strip of striped patterned paper (from the Stripes Paper Pad).

Supplies: Stripes Paper Pad, Say Cheese Shaped Shaker Set, Red Wallflowers, Yellow Wallflowers, Yellow Sparklers

 

Thanks so much for joining me here today!

How To Use Foam and Acetate Sheets to Make Shakers

How To Use Foam and Acetate Sheets to Make Shakers 0

Hi Queen and Co fans! 
Rebecca here with a couple of new shaker cards made with the Foam and Acetate refill sheets. There are a couple of extra steps that you need to take if you are making a shaker from the sheets versus from a Queen and Co Shaker Card Kit.
For example, you have to die cut the foam yourself. Any of the Queen and Co Foam Front Dies perfectly create card sized shakers.
You will also need to cut your own card base and provide your own envelope.
But these extra steps only take a few minutes and, with the refill sheets, you are able to create any shaker that you have the die to create.
Check out this quick video where I show all the steps to create a shaker card using a Foam Front Die and the refill sheets.

Heart Throb Shaker Cards!

Heart Throb Shaker Cards! 0

Hello, everyone!
Michele Boyer here today sharing two cards using one of my favorite paper pads EVER, Heart Throb.  The colors are so soft, so pretty!

First I used one of the Heart Throb patterns beneath a Waves Foam Front. I simply cut the patterned paper to just slightly smaller than my card front (which is included with the Foam Front Shaker kit). I filled the openings with Heart Throb toppings then adhered the acetate and die-cut cardstock cover.

I tied a bit of gold cord then stamped a die-cut tag and adhered it beneath the bow. I find it’s much easier to simply slip tags beneath bows, rather than tie them within. In doing so, the tag is secured in place without moving around or loosening the cord. (Stamps and tag die by Paper Smooches.)

Supplies: Waves Foam Front, Heart Throb Kit, Scrap Happy Sheer Glue

My second card uses more pretty Heart Throb paper as well as the heart, hello and love dies, all included within the Heart Throb kit.

Before adhering the hello and love words, I die-cut three of each and layered together to create thicker elements. I adhered a thin scrap of gray floral paper along the left side (much too pretty to toss), and left a bit of the white card base to show. Once everything was assembled, I adhered a few tiny floral Heart Throb toppings.

Supplies:  Heart Throb Kit, Scrap Happy Sheer Glue

 Thanks so much for visiting today!

Shaking It Up Card Tutorials!

Shaking It Up Card Tutorials! 0

Hello crafty friends, Kim here.
 
Welcome to the Queen & Company blog. Today I am excited to share x2 card ideas with you. They are both colorful and fun to create with a clever little technique on each, you might not have thought of trying before. Let me show you what I created.
 
Best Wishes Sweetie Card by Kim Watson
 
 
​Inspired by the stamp sentiment & the foam candles base, I created this card filled with candy swirls. Together with swirly lolly bits, bakers twine swirly candy bits & iridescent pearls, the result is colorful & good enough to eat! I love 3D cards with lots to touch & feel, & this idea does just that!

Hello, Miss You Card by Kim Watson
 
 
Cards personalised with photographs are so trendy right now & really well received, especially by family members. This card was one I have been wanting to try ever since I received my talk bubble die set. Max misses his uncle and aunt who live in the U.K so much, and what better way to tell them he misses them, than with a card with his cute face on the front? 
 
The photo was trimmed to fit inside the die-cut area and stuck onto the card base, before I attached the foam front. By coordinating the fillers to match the photograph, they don't obscure the image but rather add sparkle & interest to the photograph. Alpha stickers, washi tape, iridescent pearls, a lolly & button...make this card fun to make & a pleasure to receive!

I​ am so glad you stopped by! 
Have a smashing week further!
