High Tide Timeless Tropical Save The Date

Hi Stampers.  Don’t you just love this “Save the Date” card made using the High Tide and Timeless Tropical stamp sets?  Some of you know, I sell finished cards and take custom orders on Etsy. (You can view my store at www.QueenBCreations.com).  Someone contacted me and asked me to make a save the date card for a beach wedding.

I made several samples for her.  This was one of many.  This one was my favorite.  This is an easel card with a Crumb Cake base.  To make the easel card, I started with a 4-1/4″ x 11″ piece of CS, scored at 2-3/4″ & 5-1/2″.  The Seaside Spray layer was dry embossed using the recently retired High Seas 3D Embossing Folder.  This layer was adhered to the front of the card using Stampin’ Seal by only adhering the bottom half of the layer.

The focal point is a stitched rectangle cut from Whisper White CS that I stamped a scene using the High Tide stamp set.  For the palm trees, I used a stamp from the Timeless Tropical stamp set and inked it using stampin’ write markers and die cut them using the In The Tropics Dies. The sentiment was printed on my printer onto Pool Party CS.  I then cut it down to a 1/2″ strip and flagged the ends with the Banner Triple Punch. A tiny strip of Sparkle Glimmer Paper is attached to the bottom with glue dots.

Inside the card is simple.  I added a little sand and some greenery using stamps from the High Tide stamp set.  The date was stamped onto a stitched oval using Old Olive ink and stamps from the Make a Difference stamp set, that was layered onto a Seaside Spray scalloped oval.  This was then attached to the inside of the card using stampin’ dimensionals.

The ovals act as the “stop” to keep the card open.  What do you think?

Playful Pets Suite – Magnetic Closure

Hi Stampers.  Today’s Stampin’ Friends Blog Hop is asking “What are you doing?”.  Well, in light of what’s going on in the world – I’m staying home with my pampered pets!  This adorable Playful Pets suite is soooo cute!  I had to buy the whole suite!  Have you seen that yet?  In our catalog we have 10 suites that you can order with an “I want it all” order number.


click on photo to be taken to my store to purchase – hurry!  It’s been popular and is currently on “low inventory”.

Stampin' Up! Playful Pets Suite magnetic closure fun fold card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I made these adorable magnetic closure fun fold cards on my Facebook Live a week ago.  You can find the video HERE.  Once I get it on YouTube, I will upload that below.

The dog on the front of this card is actually cut from the Playful Pets DSP using the Pets Dies that come in the Pampered Pets bundle.  I also backed the dog with a layer of Basic Black CS, cut from the same die – to give the dog more stability, since the Playful Pets DSP is thinner than the CS.

Stampin' Up! Playful Pets Suite magnetic closure fun fold card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Behind the dog, I have a Basic Black scalloped circle and a circle of the Playful Pets DSP cut using the Layering Circles Dies.  The arm that swings in from the right is tucked between the inside layers of Basic Black and Whisper White. I have placed a tiny magnet between the Basic Black circle and the Playful Pets DSP.

On the left side of the card front, I have a layer of Basic Black and a layer of Playful Pets DSP. I have placed a tiny magnet between the Basic Black circle and the Playful Pets DSP.

There are no cats in my house, my daughter does have two cats.  So… I have grand-kitties. 🙂

The cat was stamped in Memento Black and colored using the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends.

Inside the card, I have stamped the greeting (from the Pampered Pets stamp set) in Real Red ink.

Stampin' Up! Playful Pets Suite magnetic closure fun fold card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Since the inside of the card mentions “treat”, it seemed only fitting that the 3D item for this post should be a treat.  I used a 3″ x 4″ resealable bag and put a topper on it.  The Basic Black topper is 3″ x 4″, scored at 2″.  The DSP over it is 2-3/4″ x 3-3/4″ with the same style dog (backed with Basic Black CS, again, for stability).  So, what do you think??  Is this suite now on your wish list??

Painted Harvest Wedding Card-in-a-Box

Hi Stampers. Today’s card is a (Painted Harvest) card-in-a-box wedding card I made almost a year ago.  If you want measurements, etc, you can find the video tutorial on this prior post.

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest Card in a box wedding card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

My husband and I attended a wedding last fall that had a sunflower theme.  I decided to make the card to coordinate with the wedding theme.

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest Card in a box wedding card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts with a Soft Suede card base (see video mentioned above for the measurements), followed by a layer of Crushed Curry.

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest Card in a box wedding card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The Painted Harvest stamp set was the perfect fit for the theme.  To keep it country, I used Very Vanilla layers to stamp onto.

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest Card in a box wedding card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Gold stampin’ emboss powder and Versamark ink helped make the sentiments on each panel stand out.  All of the Very Vanilla layers also had sunflowers (from the Painted Harvest stamp set) stamped in Daffodil Delight and Crushed Curry ink.  The center of each sunflower is stamped in Soft Suede ink wile the leaves were all stamped in Garden Green ink.

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest Card in a box wedding card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Inside the box are a Sunflower (stamped from the Painted Harvest stamp set and cut out using my Brother Scan-n-Cut) and leaves punched out using the leaf punch.  There are also 3 balloons punched out using Soft Suede, Crushed Curry and Garden Green CS and the Balloon Bouquet punch.  A gold gel pen was used to make the reflection on each balloon.

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest Card in a box wedding card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

To represent the bride and groom, I used the heart punch.  The bride heart is cut from Sparkle Glimmer Paper, with a few pearl basic jewels to make her necklace.  For the Groom is punched from Very Vanilla CS, with a second heart cut in Soft Suede with a V cut from the front and glued over the Very Vanilla heart.  This combination makes this heart look like a groom in a suit.  Since it was a country wedding, I hand cut what is supposed to be a bolo tie and made shirt buttons using a Soft Suede Stampin’ Write marker.

I love card-in-a-box cards.  They fold flat to put into an envelope, but then pop up to make a great display piece.

Kite Fold Card

Hi Stampers.  According to our calendar – we are well into spring and should be enjoying flowers and kits as used in my kite fold card today.  Funny thing is that several of my Facebook friends on the east coast are still getting snow!  Snow in May- that’s just wrong!

Stampin' Up! Dressed to Impress DSP Kite Fold Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Here in Idaho, I can confirm it’s spring based on my allergies flaring up and the wind blowing like crazy outside.  The wind makes me think it would be a great time to fly kites.  Since I have those aforementioned allergies, I won’t be at the park in the wind anytime soon, but I can put one on a card!

Stampin' Up! Dressed to Impress DSP Kite Fold Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The kite on the front of this card is a fun fold and opens up for a message and/or a gift card.  For the card in the photos, I used velcro dots to help keep it closed.  In the video tutorial, I used mini magnets.

Stampin' Up! Dressed to Impress DSP Kite Fold Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card uses a standard card base and has the kite fold on the front of the card, giving you two places to leave a message. The kite fold looks complicated, but it’s really not.  I have even provided a PDF showing where to cut and score to make it all work out for you.  Watch the video below and enjoy!

Social Distancing Giraffes

Hi Stampers, I’m back today with another quarantine / social distancing card.  Ten days ago I shared with you my little quarantined piggy who stayed home – see that post by clicking here.  Today, I have two giraffes social distancing by staying six feet apart.  I used the Back on Your Feet stamp set.  This set only have one giraffe facing to the left.  I used the stamparatus, to do the “mirror stamp technique” to make the second giraffe face the other direction.

Stampin' Up! Back On Your Feet social distancing giraffes mirror stamping technique by Lisa Ann Bernard

The card base is Crushed Curry followed by a layer of Basic Black. I stamped onto Whisper White CS and colored the social distancing giraffes using the Stampin’ Blends.

Stampin' Up! Back On Your Feet social distancing giraffes mirror stamping technique by Lisa Ann Bernard

Seaside Spray ink was sponged above them as a sky and Old Olive ink was sponged below them to be grass.  I used a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker to draw the arrows and the 6′ between the two giraffes.

Stampin' Up! Back On Your Feet social distancing giraffes mirror stamping technique by Lisa Ann Bernard

This cute sentiment “This is knot good” came in the Back on Your Feet stamp set and coordinates with the giraffe (since it has a knot in it’s neck). The sentiment was stamped in Soft Suede ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS and punched out using a 1-3/8″ scallop circle punch and mounted on a piece of Soft Suede CS punched out using the 1-1/2″ circle punch. <—– I am so sad these punches (along with many others) are retiring!

Stampin' Up! Back On Your Feet social distancing giraffes mirror stamping technique by Lisa Ann Bernard

Inside the card is a layer of Whisper White that has been sponged to match the front of the card.

Stampin' Up! Back On Your Feet social distancing giraffes mirror stamping technique by Lisa Ann Bernard

The sentiment “Miss You Friend” is made using three stamps from the Well Said stamp set.  In the video below you can see how I die cut the CS (using the Ornate Frames Dies) and used a negative template to hold the die cut and stamp the sentiment using the Stamparatus.  Doing this allowed me to mount the stamps nice and straight, using the grid lines, ONCE and stamp many of these in succession to use on a bunch of cards I made.

Stampin' Up! Back On Your Feet social distancing giraffes mirror stamping technique by Lisa Ann Bernard

Finally, I added that sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals, so that it could be used as the stopper for my easel card.  You can find full direction and measurements for my social distancing giraffes by watching the video below and all supplies can be purchased from my online store.

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

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

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.
