Floral Essence Blissful Future

Hi Stampers. Happy Friday!  I hope you have something fun planned.  I’ve had big Stampin’ Up Events two weekends in a row (WCMD and Bunco), so this weekend I plan to stay in my studio and craft! This beautiful card is made using the Floral Essence Suite from the 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.

We made this card at the Stampin’ Up! OnStage event last April.  At this event we were able to play with new product and go home with the new catalog. In a few weeks, I will be traveling to Las Vegas to attend the next OnStage event and play with new products and come home with the new 2020 Occasions catalog and Sale-a-Bration brochure.

The Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper is so pretty! It reminds me of a classic painting.  It has a very soft classic floral look to it and makes beautiful cards and projects!  How about those flower centers? Don’t they look real?!?

Wildly Happy Sweetest Baby

Hi Stampers. A while back someone asked me about the subtle 3D embossing folder and how to use it. Today I’m showing you one idea for this embossing folder.

stampin up stamping your way to the top new team member card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card is made using the Wildy Happy stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  It is a set of 9 cling mount stamps.  (Cling mount stamps are red rubber stamps with a sticky back that mount on clear blocks.)

This card is monochromatic – meaning various shades of the same color – in this case gray.  This card uses Basic Gray, Smokey Slate and Whisper White CS and Basic Gray ink.

I used two sets of layering dies – the ovals and the squares.  I love how the square frames the Mommy elephant and her baby.

Before I dry embossed the Smoky Slate CS – I used my Basic Gray ink to apply ink all over one side the Subtle Embossing Folder.  As it went through the embossing machine it not only embossed, but it transfered the ink into the CS making the embossing more defined. Such a cool effect!

To Have and To Hold

Hi Stampers. We are nearing the end of an awesome Annual Catalog and getting ready to launch a fabulous Annual Catalog!  It’s a fun time of year!  Today I’d like to share with you one of the sets from the retirement list.  This To Have & To Hold Clear Mount stamp set is a great one.  Alot of people often look for the phrase “Mr & Mrs” and this set has it!  Inventory is running low – so hop over to my store and buy it before they are gone!

Stampin' Up! To Have and To Hold Tufted Embossing Layering Ovals handmade wedding or anniversary card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card has a simple Balmy Blue card base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″.  Next is a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Whisper White CS that I have dry embossed using the Tufted Dynamic Embossing Folder.  Over that I adhered a Balmy Blue CS scalloped oval (cut using the Layering Ovals Dies) followed by a slightly smaller oval (also cut using those Layering Oval Dies).  Onto the Whisper White Layer I stamped the couple from the To Have & To Hold stamp set in Memento Black ink.

Stampin' Up! To Have and To Hold Tufted Embossing Layering Ovals handmade wedding or anniversary card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I stamped the flowers (also from the To Have & To Hold stamp set) onto a scrap of Whisper White and colored the flowers and the couple using my super awesome Stampin’ Blends! (Do you have these yet?  You want them!  You want them all!!)  I then fussy cut the flowers. The Balmy Blue scallop oval was adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the Whisper White oval onto that using snail adhesive. I adhered the flowers using a mix of snail adhesive and dimensionals.  I have a dimensional on each end where it connects directly to the card front and snail in the middle where it adheres to the oval (which is already raised).  The inside can be stamped with a wedding or anniversary sentiment.

Nautical Beach Wedding Card in a Box

Hi Stampers. I love making fancy cards. My customers prefer the simple, but every so often I just need to make something more.  That need to create more complex cards is what started my Etsy store. The most popular items in my Etsy store are my “card in a box” cards. I was recently asked to make a card in a box for a beach wedding.  I created the Tropical Beach Wedding card that was used in my Pals Blog Hop blog post last week.  You can see that post here.  Turns out, the beach is in Cape May, NJ – beautiful beach town, but not exactly tropical. So, I created this card.

Stampin' Up! Sailing Home & High Tide Nautical Beach Lighthouse Wedding Card in a box by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I’ve done card-in-a-box cards often.  You can find the video tutorial on this prior post. This card in a box starts with a Seaside Spray (a 2019-2021 in-color) card base, followed by Sahara Sand CS and then Whisper White CS. I stamped onto the Whisper White CS.

Stampin' Up! Sailing Home & High Tide Nautical Beach Lighthouse Wedding Card in a box by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I cut waves out of some scrap Seaside Spray CS and used some 2-way glue and dazzling diamond glitter on the tips of the waves and attached them to the cross members first. The sentiments are from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set and are stamped in Night of Navy ink.  The anchors are from the new Sailing Home stamp set and are stamped in Basic Gray.  The ropes are from the same set and are stamped in Crumb Cake ink.  The sailboats are also from the Sailing Home stamp set and are stamped in Seaside Spray and Night of Navy inks and are die cut with the coordinating dies.

Stampin' Up! Sailing Home bundleDo you like the new Sailing Away stamp set and Smooth Sailing dies?
They will be available for purchase when the new 2019-2020 annual Stampin’ Up! catalog goes live on June 4th.
You can save 10% by buying these together as a bundle.

I created the lighthouse to look like the actual lighthouse in Cape May.  It is red on top with white on the bottom. I used the lighthouse from the High Tide stamp set.  I stamped the first stamp (the one with the detail for the top) using Smoky Slate ink.  Then I used the second stamp (the solid part), I inked up just the top in Cherry Cobbler ink and stamped it onto the lighthouse. For the bottom, I stamped in Versamark ink and used White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and melted with the heat tool.

Stampin' Up! Sailing Home & High Tide Nautical Beach Lighthouse Wedding Card in a box by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The bride and groom hearts are cut out of Basic Black CS, Whisper White CS and Sparkle Glimmer Paper using the hearts from the Be Mine Dies. Using paper snips I cut the two sides off of the Whisper White heart and glued it onto the Basic Black heart to create the dress shirt. I used the Cookie Cuter Builder Punch to cut the bow tie from Basic Black CS and used a sponge dauber to put a little Whisper White ink to the edges of the bow tie to make it pop. I used my Take Your Pick tool to add pearl accents to the Sparkle Glimmer paper heart. These are attached to each other and to the front of the card box with mini glue dots.

Stampin' Up! Sailing Home & High Tide Nautical Beach Lighthouse Wedding Card in a box by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For around the bottom of the card-in-a-box I used the High Tide stamp set to create a beach scene. I used Sahara Sand ink for the sand, Seaside Spray ink for the water (stamped the lines and used sponge dauber over them), a stamping sponge wedge was used to sponge Seaside Spray ink for the sky. The sun is stamped in Mango Melody ink, the birds in Smoky Slate ink and the grass in the sand in Old Olive ink. On the back of the card, I stamped the lighthouse and the flying birds from the new Sailing Home stamp set in Basic Gray ink. This time the customer was thrilled.  I hope you are, too.  Let me know what you think in the comments below.

Bloomin’ Heart Wedding Card

Hi Stampers. We have a family wedding coming up, so I may have wedding on the brain lately. But, I’m coming up with some beautiful cards! Today’s card is no exception and (bonus) it uses a product from the clearance rack!  The Bloomin’ Heart die was $25 retail, but it on the clearance rack for $15.

Stampin' Up! Blooming Heart white wedding card with sparkle glimmer paper by Lisa Ann Bernardd of Queen B Creations

This card starts with a thick Whisper White card base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. Next is a beautiful layer of Sparkle Glimmer Paper that is 4″ x 5-1/4″. The top layer is 3-3/4″ x 5″.  I took this layer to the Big Shot and used the Bloomin’ Heart die to die cut this beautiful detailed heart.  After using the big shot die brush to knock out all the little cut outs, I was ready to adhere it to my card base.

I adhered the “frame” of this layer to the Sparkle Glimmer Paper using Tear & Tape Adhesive.  This adhesive because it is a little thicker that snail and sticks to the glimmer paper better.  Next, I put mini glue dots on the back side of the heart and inserted it back into the “frame” of this layer.  I put a basic rhinestone in the center of each flower. Across the bottom I adhered a piece of Silver Foil (3-1/4″ x 1-1/4″). I stamped the greeting from Better Together onto a piece of Whisper White CS (3″ x 1″) using Versamark ink (after using the embossing buddy).  I quickly sprinkled Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder over the ink, tapped off the excess and melted it with the heat tool. This was then adhered to the Silver Foil layer.

The inside of the card I stamped the flower from Better Together into the upper left and lower right corner using Versamark ink (after using the embossing buddy).  I quickly sprinkled Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder over the ink, tapped off the excess and melted it with the heat tool.

Tufted First Frost Congratulations

Hi Stampers. As spring pops up all over my yard, I’m amazed by all the beautiful flowers. I’m so happy that this stamp set filled with beautiful flowers, that debuted in our 2018 Holiday Catalog, has carried over and is in the new 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. The First Frost stamp set and coordinating Frosted Bouquet Dies are beautiful!

Stampin' Up! First Frost tufted TIEF handmade congratulations card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For this card, I started with a Highland Heather 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 Balmy Blue. I used the Tufted Embossing Folder to dry emboss this layer before adhering it to the card base.

Next I stamped the flowers from the First Frost stamp set in Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather ink onto Whisper White CS.  I used the Frosted Bouquet dies to die cut the stamped roses, the leaves from Old Olive CS and the sprigs from Whisper White and Highland Heather CS.  To give the leaves a little more dimension, I sponged Old Olive ink on the edges of the leaves.

Stampin' Up! First Frost tufted TIEF handmade congratulations card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For the sentiment, I used the Stitched Shapes Dies and cut a large oval from Whisper White CS and stamped the sentiment in Gorgeous Grape ink. I used the Layering Ovals dies to die cut a scalloped oval, slightly larger than the Whisper White oval from Highland Heather CS. I adhered the two ovals together with snail adhesive and attached the leaves and sprigs to the back using mini glue dots.  Next, I adhered the ovals to the card front using stampin’ dimensionals. To finish it off I added the roses and a frosted epoxy droplets to the center of the roses.  A little wink of stella would be a nice added touch.
