Layering Alphabet Rock On

Hi Stampers. For today’s card we ROCK ON with the leftovers from Friday’s card.  The letters ROCK were die cut using the Layering Alphabet Edgelit Dies, one side was used for Friday’s card and the rest for today’s card.

I started with a Thick Whisper White card base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″.  Next, I layered together the left over from Friday’s card in Night of Navy CS, Balmy Blue CS, Smoky Slate CS and Basic Gray CS. I glued the layers together using Tombow Liquid Glue and trimmed them all down to be a total of 4″ x 5-1/4″.  This grouping was them adhered to the card base using Liquid Glue.

Then, I used the Layering Alphabet Edgelits Dies to die cut an O and an N out of scraps of Whisper White CS.  To use the letters I just trimmed off the triangle part and adhered them in the lower right corner of my card front.

I hope you give this card a try.  If you do, don’t forget to save the center of the O from the Smokey Slate CS so you can adhere it to the card front in the center of the O.

You Rock Lined Alphabet

Hi Stampers. In keeping with the theme from Wednesday, I’m using the Lined Alphabet stamp set and Layering Alphabet Edgelits Dies to create a card for my customers.  You rock!

Stampin' Up! Lined Alphabet Layering Alphabet edgelits you rock card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts with a Night of Navy card base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. Next, I used the Layering Alphabet Edgelits Dies and my Big Shot to die cut the letters R O C K out of Balmy Blue CS, Smoky Slate CS, Pacific Point CS and Basic Gray CS. (I started with a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of cardstock for each letter – I will use the reverse for Monday’s card, so don’t throw away the other half.)  The word YOU was die cut from a scrap of Night of Navy CS using my Big Shot and the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies.

Stampin' Up! Lined Alphabet Layering Alphabet edgelits you rock card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I stamped the letter over the die cut of the letter using Memento Black ink and the Lined Alphabet stamp set.  It was easier to die cut first and stamp afterwards so that I could arrange the die as needed.  Stamping the letters was made easier by the fact that these stamps are photopolymer and you can see through them.

Stampin' Up! Lined Alphabet Layering Alphabet edgelits you rock card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

All the layers were adhered together and then to the card base using Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue. From the edge of the Balmy Blue to the outer edge of the K, the layers should total 4″ x 5-1/4″.

I hope you enjoy today’s card.  This is a really fun bundle to work with.  If you are interested, I suggest you purchase this bundle before June 1st. All supplies used are listed below with links to my online store. I don’t yet know if the stamp set and dies will carry over, but if it does it will not be bundled for the 10% discount.  The bundle discounts only apply to stamp sets with dies or punch the first time they appear in a catalog.  After that, they need to be purchased separately.

Country Floral All Adorned

Hi Stampers. You are pretty much the BEST ever!  I have some great customers and I am so thankful for those of you who support me in a job that I love.  It means the world to me to be able to work from home doing what I love doing and earning money doing it! This card is for you!

Stampin' Up! Country Floral TIEF colored with Stampin' Blends handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This beautiful card starts with a Petal Pink card base – 11″ x 4-1/4″, scored at 5-1/2″.  This makes the card open from the bottom and flip up. Next i used the Country Floral Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and Big Shot to dry emboss a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White CS. Next, I colored the flowers ad leaves using Stampin’ Blends.

For the focal point and sentiment, I used the Layering Ovals Framelit Dies to cut ovals out of Petal Pink CS and Whisper White CS. The sentiment, from the All Adorned stamp set, was stamped onto the Whisper White oval using Crumb Cake ink. I adhered all these pieces to the card base using snail adhesive. The bow was made out of 3/8″ Crumb Cake Classic Weave ribbon and attached with glue dots.

For the inside of the card, I cut a Whisper White layer of CS – 4″ x 5-1/4″. The flower, from the Painted Seasons stamp set, was stamped in Petal Pink ink in the lower right corner. I got this idea for this card from a friend, Candy Ford. She made this card without coloring the flowers, it looked very pretty that way, too.

Big Shot Embossing Mats

Hi Stampers. I have a fun technique for you today using the Stampin’ Up! Embossing Mats.  They are kind of a sleeper item in the catalog. The mats can easily be over looked if you don’t know what they are and how awesome they are! Look in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog on page 221, under Big Shot Accessories.

Stampin' Up! Big Shot embossing mats Be Mine Stitched and Garage Gears framelit dies by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts out with a Basic Black card base, 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. The next layer is a 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″ layer of Basic Gray CS followed by a 5″ x 3-3/4″ piece of Real Red CS. I used a sentiment stamp from the Geared Up Garage stamp set to stamp “you jump start my heart” all over the Real Red layer of CS in Real Red ink.  I used my Stamparatus so that the placement was evenly spaced, but could be stamped randomly by hand if you wish.

The heart was die cut on the Big Shot using the Be Mine Stitched Framelit Dies out of Silver Foil paper. At the same time, I used the Garage Gears Thinlits Dies to die cut the car emblem out of Silver Foil paper and Whisper White CS. I used the Silver Foil outer part and Whisper White inner part to create the element in the lower right corner.  Using the same sentiment that I used on the background, I stamped onto the Whisper White inner part using Basic Gray ink. The layers were adhered to the card base using snail adhesive and the car emblem was adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I used the Big Shot embossing mats and the large gears (cutting) die from the Garage Gears Thinlits Dies create the dry embossed gears in the Silver Foil heart.  You can see more about how I did that in the following video:

Tea Together Z-fold Card

Hi Stampers. Two of the things I love about Stampin’ Up! is making “fancy fold” cards and a good sale!  Sale-a-bration in an annual event and is the biggest sale of the year! We have two levels – you earn a level 1 gift for each $50 you spend and a level 2 gift for each $100 you spend.  One of the level two gift is this awesome set of framelits that match the Tea Together stamp set from the 2019 Occasions Catalog.

Stampin' Up! Tea Together zfold handmade fancy fold card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The z fold card is one that has been around for a while and I’ve seen similar cards online and this is my own version of it.  The card base is a 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ piece of Mossy Meadow CS. Next, I took piece of Blushing Bride CS 11” x 5 ½” and scored it at 3 ½” and 7”. I then used the scallop edgelit from the Seasonal Layers thinlits dies on the right side of the card base. On card front, I adhered a 5-1/4” x 3-1/4” layer of the Petal Promenade DSP. I adhered another 5-1/4” x 3-1/4” piece of the Petal Promenade DSP (the same paper, other side).

I used the Tea Together Stamp set to stamp the Tea Pot, Teacup, large and small flower in Versamark ink onto scraps of Whisper White CS. Next, I applied Silver Stampin’ emboss powder and melted with the heat tool. I colored these using the Stampin’ Blends markers. (Note: I used the light Petal Pink to just highlight a little on the teacup so it wasn’t too shocking white.) These items were then cut out using the Tea Time Framelit dies (a level two SAB item).

I attached the Tea Pot to the front of the card base using snail adhesive and the Teacup to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The ribbon was wrapped aound the card and adhered to the Tea Pot using a mini glue dot and a small flower was adhered over that using a Stampin’ Dimensional.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink onto a piece of Whisper White CS 5-1/4” x 3-1/2” and sprinkled on Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder and melted with heat tool. All that was left was to wrap the ribbon around the card and tie a bow on the right side.  I’m thrilled with how it came out.

I shared how to make this in my Facebook Live on December 31st on my Facebook Page.  It was then edited and uploaded to my YouTube channel.  Here is the YouTube video.

For you use, I have listed the supplies used in the making of this card below.  Each picture has a link to that item in my online store.  I’d love to be YOUR Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.

Forever Lovely Sparkle Card

Hi Stampers.  Welcome to the Pals monthly blog hop. We’re so glad you’re here! January is all about making “Art from the Heart,” featuring projects for Valentines Day, Thinking of You, Get Well, or Sympathy. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Stampin' Up! Forever Lovely Sparkle and Shine Glimmer Paper card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I chose to create my card using the Forever Lovely bundle from the Stampin’ Up! 2019 Occasions Catalog. My Forever Lovely card starts with a Thick Whisper White card base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. Next I added a 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ layer of Sparkle Glimmer Paper.  Next, I cut another piece of Thick Whisper White CS 4″ x 5-1/4″.

Stampin’ Tip: If you haven’t ordered glimmer paper since the new catalog, you should!  They reformulated our glimmer paper last June and it is now easier to work with, it’s a little thinner (easier to die cut with) and doesn’t shed hardly any glitter!! I’ve always felt that Stampin’ Up! glimmer paper lost less glitter than what I could buy at the big box store. But, now it doesn’t shed hardly any – that’s just amazing!!!

Using the Lovely Flowers Edgelit Dies (part of the Forever Lovely bundle) I die cut the detailed floral edge on the 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Thick Whisper White CS twice.  Once very close to the top and then another one just below that.  I turned the die so that the cut portion both went into the card front (is that how to say that right?? See the photo to see what I mean).  I then used the single edgelt die to cut two pieces of the Rose Glimmer paper and adhered that behind the detailed cutouts using glue dots. I wrapped a six inch piece of Whisper White metallic edge ribbon around the bottom and adhered it to the back with glue dots.  Next, I made a small bow and attached it to the ribbon strip with glue dots. Then I adhered both of those pieces to the card front, over the Sparkle Glimmer Paper.

I lined the inside of the card with a 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ piece of Sparkle Glimmer Paper. Since the middle was being covered up anyway, I cut a rectangle out of the middle so I can use that on another project. Next, I cut a piece of Whisper White CS 3-3/4″ x 5″ and used the little corner pieces to cut the tiny holes (see photo below) in the upper right and lower left corner. I cut 3/4″ x 3/4″ squares of glimmer paper and adhered those behind the holes with a glue dot.

In the center of the inside layer, I stamped the sentiment “Wishing you a lovely day” (from the Forever Lovely stamp set) in Blushing Bride ink.  This layer was attached to the Sparkle Glimmer Paper layer using snail and a few glue dots. (Note: I used the glue dots because glue dots seem to grip the glimmer paper better than snail adhesive).
