On To Adventure

Hi Stampers, do you have some friends or family who are “On To Adventure” in retirement?  If they are headed somewhere tropical, I may have just the card!  This fun fold card features the corner tuck technique.

Stampin' Up! On To Adventure corner tuck fold technique retirement card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts with an Old Olive base and then a beach scene was made using Balmy Blue and Crumb Cake CS.  The palm trees, from the Timeless Tropical stamp set, were inked using Stampin’ Write Markers.

The little people are from the On To Adventure stamp set and colored using the Stampin’ Blends and cut out using my Brother Scan-n-Cut. <– click the link to see which one I have, on Amazon

Inside the card, my layer is the same size as the beach scene layer on the front of the card, so that it would not show when closed.  The corner is a triangle that has been dry embossed and attached with mini dimensionals on the very edges, leaving an area to tuck the corner in.  You can see more about how this card was made by watching the video tutorial below.

Sip Sip Hooray It’s New Years

Happy New Year, Stampers!!  We did it!  We got through the holidays and into the new decade – welcome to 2020!  Wow, that sounds so odd to me.  It sounds so futuristic, but here we are!

Stampin' Up! Sip Sip Hooray New Years or Congratulations cards by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I made these three cards with New Years Eve in mind.  I love the Basic Black with our Glimmer and Foil papers.  These cards feel very festive to me.  They can also be used as congratulations or wedding cards.

Stampin' Up! Sip Sip Hooray New Years or Congratulations cards by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

All 3 cards use the Sip Sip Hooray stamp set and the Sip & Celebrate dies.  This first card is done using Champagne Foil.  I used the foil as the middle layer as well as die cut the champagne flutes from the foil paper.

Stampin' Up! Sip Sip Hooray New Years or Congratulations cards by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The front of this card doesn’t use any stamps.  I just die cut using the Sip & Celebrate dies.

Stampin' Up! Sip Sip Hooray New Years or Congratulations cards by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I strip of Champagne Foil and a champagne glass stamped in the corner, makes up the card interior.

Stampin' Up! Sip Sip Hooray New Years or Congratulations cards by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card is made using Basic Black CS, Whisper White CS and Gold Glimmer Paper.  I heat embossed the greeting onto the Whisper White circle in gold.

Stampin' Up! Sip Sip Hooray New Years or Congratulations cards by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The circles were the perfect size for the greeting, but a little too big for the space on the front of the card where I wanted to put it.  Pushing it to the edge and cutting off the excess made it fit perfectly.

Stampin' Up! Sip Sip Hooray New Years or Congratulations cards by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I kept the interior simple by just adding a few Gold Glimmer stars.

Stampin' Up! Sip Sip Hooray New Years or Congratulations cards by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

My final card is made using Basic Black CS, Whisper White CS and Silver Glimmer Paper.  For this card I die cut the champagne flutes from the Basic Black Layer, reveling the Silver behind.

Stampin' Up! Sip Sip Hooray New Years or Congratulations cards by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This sentiment is heat embossed in Silver embossing powder.  The greeting was a little small for strip, so I added some rhinestones on either side.

For the interior of this card, I used the “bubbles” die and stamped the champagne flutes along the bottom.

You can see how I made all three of these cards by watching the video below:

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.

stampin up foral essence perennial essence DSP handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

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.)

stampin up wildly happy sweetest baby card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

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.

stampin up wildly happy sweetest baby card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

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

stampin up wildly happy sweetest baby card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

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.
