Geared Up Garage Classic

Hi Stampers. Have you purchased the Geared Up Garage bundle yet?  It’s so fun!  I was so happy to see this suite in the 2019 Occasions catalog! It’s a fabulous stamp set and dies to create masculine cards with.  The sentiment stamps are versatile enough to give you options for Everyday cards, Father’s Day, Birthday, Valentine’s Day (or any “love” occasion).

Stampin' Up! Geared Up Garage Bundle cling stamp set and garage gears thinlits dies

Today, I am on my way to the Stampin’ Up! OnStage event in Salt Lake City where I will get my hands on the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  Once I have that, I will know if this stamp set will be carrying over or retiring as of June 3rd, 2019.  I will keep you posted!

Stampin' Up! Geared Up Garage Silver Embossing Paste Masculine car guy card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card stars with a Basic Black card base 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. Next up is a 5-1/4″ x 4″ layer of Basic Gray CS. I used the Silver Embossing Paste, Pattern Party Decorative Masks and the Palate knives to create this awesome background on that Basic Gray layer.  (I did several of them one day and let them dry over night before making the card.) The car, gas can and toolbox were stamped onto Whisper White CS using Versamark ink and embossed them using Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder and my Heat Tool. I colored them with the Stampin’ Blends and die cut the shapes out with the coordinating framelits from the thinlits set.

Stampin’ Tip: The difference between a “framelit” and a “thinlit” is pretty simple.  A framelit is just that – a frame, it goes around the image and cuts it out.  A “thinlit” is a die that cuts out a more detailed die cut, such as the gears.

Stampin' Up! Geared Up Garage Silver Embossing Paste Masculine car guy card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The gears were cut from Basic Black CS using the Garage Gears Thinlits Dies and my Big Shot. I then cut a strip of Basic Gray CS, 1-1/4″ x 5-1/2″, and flagged the end with the Triple Banner Punch. The sentiment was stamped onto this strip using Memento Black ink.  The strip is attached to the background layer using liquid glue. (I suggest something a little stronger / thicker than snail adhesive due to the texture of the embossing paste). The toolbox, gears and car were attached to the background layer and then the excess of the toolbox was cut off from the back before adhering it to the card base.

For the inside of the card, I used a 5-1/4″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White CS. Before adhering it to the inside of my card I stamped the oil stains in Basic Gray ink, letting it hang off the edge a bit. It is adhered to the inside of the card using liquid glue (hey, I had it out for the rest of the card – why not?) To finish it off the gas can was adhered over the oil stains with the liquid glue. You can easily add “Happy Birthday”, “Happy Father’s Day” or whatever the occasion to the inside or you can leave it blank and have room to write a message. There are many possibilities…

Large Letters Happy Birthday Card

Hi Stampers. I just love the Large Letter Framelit Dies, they have so many uses!  I use them often with and without the coordinating Letters For You stamp set. Today’s card features two of my favorites – the large letter dies and the Well Written stamp set. 🙂  I created a bright and fun birthday card to share with you.

Stampin' Up! Large Letter Framelits Dies over Marbled background birthday card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This birthday card starts with a Lemon Lime Twist card base – 11″ x 4-1/4″, scored at 5-1/2″.  This makes the card hinge from the top when it opens. Don’t you just love how bright and cheery the Lemon Lime Twist is?  Did you know it’s retiring soon?  It’s a 2017-2019 In-Color, which means it’s retiring before the new 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog comes out June 4th.

2017-2019 In-Colors retiring June 3, 2019, expected to run out before then. Shop at www.QueenBCreations.net

These colors have been popular and supplies in these colors are expected to run out before the retirement date. Stock up now on cardstock, ribbon, designer series papers, etc.  Don’t forget the re-inker to go with the stamp pad and marker!  You can purchase these items in my online store here.

I also expect that all current Designer Series Papers will retire and be replaced with new ones.The new ones will be wonderful, but if you have any current favorites, I suggest you stock up on them NOW. You can purchase these items in my online store here.

Stampin' Up! Large Letter Framelits Dies over Marbled background birthday card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Back to our birthday card – I started by stamping the Marbled background stamp in Lemon Lime Twist ink onto the card front. Next, I cut a strip of Whisper White CS 4-1/4″ x 1″ and adhered it towards the bottom of the card front. I then adhered the multipurpose adhesive sheets to a piece of Bermuda Bay CS (approx. 2-1/2″ x 6-1/2″). The letters H A P P Y were cut out of this CS using the Large Letters framelits dies and my Big Shot. I peeled off the backing and stuck them right to the card front – easy peasy! (Love that stuff!!) The word birthday, from the Well Said stamp set, was stamped onto the Whisper White strip in Bermuda Bay ink.

Stampin' Up! Large Letter Framelits Dies over Marbled background birthday card with So Hoppy Together on the inside by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The inside of this birthday card is lined with a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Whisper White CS. I used the, now retired, So Hoppy For You Sale-A-Bration reward set and stamped in Memento Black ink before coloring with the Stampin’ Blends. (Just a quick reminder to get those things you love before they retire.) I added just a touch of Wink of Stella to the flies and butterfly wings.

Well Written Birthday

Hi Stampers. I am just in love with the Well Said bundle (Well Said stamp set and Well Written Thinlits Dies).  It’s a simple set that matches almost everything and covers almost every occasion.  If you don’t have this bundle, you will want to purchase it from my online store! (links below)  It’s pretty awesome! Today I’m making a birthday card with the bundle.

Stampin' Up! Well Said stamp set and Well Written Thinlits Dies Happy Birthday card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts with a Pear Pizazz card base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″.  Next, I used my Big Shot to dry emboss a 5-1/4″ x 4″ layer of Very Vanilla CS using the Pinewood Planks TIEF.  I used the greenery and flowers from the Well Written Thinlits dies to die cut the images for the front of this card.  Before die cutting them, I applied the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to the back of Garden Green and Crushed Curry CS. I also die cut a large oval from Very Vanilla CS using the Big Shot and the Stitched Shapes framelit dies.

The dry embossed Very Vanilla layer was adhered to the card front using snail adhesive. Then the greenery was adhered to the dry embossed layer. The “happy birthday” was adhered to the Very Vanilla oval and then that was attached to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered Crushed Curry flowers over the greenery on the right side and placed a Basic Pearl Jewel in the center of each flower.

The inside of the card has another 5-1/4″ x 4″ layer of Very Vanilla CS.  I had cut an additional greenery and flowers to adhere on the inside lower right corner.  The sentiment is is one of the many from the Well Said stamp set and is stamped in Garden Green ink.

Happy Birthday Enjoy Life

Hi Stampers. I hope you have seen my post from last week about getting a birthday card from me and have filled out the form.  I just need the month and day of your birth (year not necessary) and a mailing address and I will send you a birthday card.  Today I am showing off a birthday card made using the Large Letters Framelit Dies and the Enjoy Life stamp set. (The word “happy” is from the Well Said stamp set – I LOVE that set!  It has soooo much in it!).

Stampin' Up! Large Letters Enjoy Life colorful sponged background happy birthday card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts with a gorgeous grape card base – 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. I used wedges of the stamping sponge to sponge color onto a 5-1/4″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White CS. Our Whisper White CS is super smooth and gets great images when stamping. The colors I used to sponge onto this layer are Melon Mambo, Gorgeous Grape, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green. You can use any colors you wish, I just thought these looked bright and cheerful.

Next, I cut the letters B-D-A-Y out of scraps of Whisper White CS using the Big Shot and the Large Letters framelit dies. I adhered the B first so I would know where to stamp the figure of the person holding up their hands. I chose to use the Stamparatus to stamp the figure from the Enjoy Life stamp set. I used it because I wanted a good solid dark image and I knew the Stamparatus would allow me to stamp multiple times in the exact same spot, ensuring I got the look I was going for. Then I was able to place the other three letters.  I stamped the word “happy” from the Well Said stamp set onto a strip of Whisper White CS using Gorgeous Grape ink and used my paper snips to flag the end. This was adhered with multipurpose liquid glue, as were all the letters.

The inside of the card is lined with a 5-1/4″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White.  I kept the inside simple, I stamped the greenery from the Enjoy Life stamp set in Granny Apple Green ink. I hope whoever recieves this card enjoys getting it as much as I enjoyed making it!

Time to Sale-A-Brate Pals Blog Hop – Hello Cupcake

Hi Stampers.

Welcome to the Pals’ February blog hop. We’re so glad you’re here because it’s “Time to Sale-A-Brate”! Our Design Team created projects using Sale-A-Bration items to inspire you. 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! Hello Cupcake sweet wishes handmade birthday card made by Lisa Ann Bernared of Queen B Creations

For my card I chose to use the Hello Cupcake stamp set.  The card base Coastal Cabana CS – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″.  I stamped the sprinkles diagonally across the card front in Coastal Cabana ink.  The cupcake was stamped onto a piece of Whisper White CS 2-1/2″ x 4-1/4.  The base is stamped in Soft Suede ink and the Frosting is stamping in Powder Pink ink. Note: there is a gap between the base and frosting to allow for the sentiment. The sprinkles and cupcake topper are stamped in Melon Mambo.

The sentiment is stamped onto a 2″ x 1-1/2″ piece of Powder Pink CS layered over a 4-1/2″ x 1-1/2″ piece of powder pink CS that has been flagged using the Banner Triple Punch. The sentiment was added with stampin’ dimensionals to give it some pop and the Glitter Enamel Dots add that touch of sparkle.
