Geared Up Garage

Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop Badge

Hi Stampers. Welcome to another Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop.  This time we are showcasing projects made using new products from the Stampin’ Up! 2019 Occasions Catalog and the 2019 Sale-a-bration brochure. For my card, I chose to use the Geared Up Garage set.  I can’t tell you how excited I was to spot this set in the new catalog.

Stampin' Up! Geared Up Garage Best Dad handmade card made by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

My card started with a pacific Point card base, 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. Next, I made good use of the coordinating Classic Garage Designer Series Paper stack.  I cut the red piece to 5-1/4″ x 4″ and make two flags out of two other pieces in the stack. The piece with the steering wheels was cut to 3″ x 4″ and I flagged it with the paper snips. I used the banner triple banner punch to flag the gray piece, cut to 1-1/2″ x 4″.

Using the largest circle in the Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies, I cut a circle out of Whisper White CS.  I then stamped the oil spills and nuts in Basic Gray ink.  Using the Best Dad stamp and Real Red ink, I stamped the sentiment onto Whisper White CS. The emblem die from the Garage Gears Thinlit set was used to cut out the sentiment and another one in Silver Foil paper.  I inserted the sentiment into the emblem and attached both to the circle using glue dots.  All pieces were then attached to the card front using liquid glue.

The inside of the card is lined with a 5-14″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White CS with a 1″ x 4″ strip of DSP on the right side.  I stamped the sentiment in Real Red ink and adhered this layer to the inside of the card with liquid glue.

Loyal & True Military Thank You Card

Hi Stampers. Today I’d like to share with you one of the cards we made in class last night. This card uses the Stampin’ Up! Loyal & True stamp set.  This is an awesome set for all patriotic and military cards! Since it was flag day, these cards just seemed perfect to do that day. 🙂

STampin' Up! Loyal and True handmade military thank you card with soldier by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Since this was a military card it seemed obvious to use Red, White and Blue.  So, the card base is Night of Navy CS, 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″. For the focal point I used a Whisper White Layer of CS 2 7/8″ x 4 1/8 & a Real Red CS layer 2 3/4″ x 4″. I stamped the Humble & Dedicated sentiment in Real Red ink onto a 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″ layer of Whisper White CS.

Before adhering the center layers, I stamped the star from the Loyal & True stamp set all over the Night of Navy card base with Night of Navy ink. Next, I attached the next three layers. I stamped the Loyal & True sentiment in Night of Navy ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS and cut it out with my paper snips. (The Stampin’ Up! badge punch, will punch this out perfectly, but I don’t own it.)

The Loyal & True sentiment badge was adhered to the card front with stampin’ dimensionals.  I love how it gave it a little bit of dimension and “pop”.

For the interior of the card, I cut a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Whisper White CS.  I stamped the soldier on the right side of the layer with Night of Navy ink, letting it hang off the edge a little, giving me more room to write my message.

Stampin’ Up! No Bones About It Retiring Products Blog Hop

Stampin' Up! retiring products blog hop

Hi Stampers. No Bones About It – some fabulous Stampin’ Up! products are soon going the way of the dinosaur (retiring)!  The new annual catalog goes live on June 1st which means they need to make room for all the amazing new products that are coming. Today’s blog hop will showcase Stampin’ Up! products that you are gonna wanna buy before they are gone.  Nobody “wants” to pay those high prices on eBay.

If you follow me at all, you know I’m a huge fan of fancy folds.  This “impossible fold” is popping up EVERYWHERE these days.  I’m not sure who came up with it, but all of a sudden I’m seeing it everywhere!  I decided to use the No Bones About It stamp set to create this adorable dinosaur card.

Stampin' Up! Handmade Impossible Card Template / Tutorial with measurements

This card is a card stock saver.  The Garden Green card base is only 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 2 1/8″ down the long middle.  Next, I cut 1″ from each side, up to the fold line on 1/2 of the card.  On the other side of the fold, I cut up the middle at 2 3/4″ to the score line.  (See the template below.) Then you just twist the card, so one of the one inch strips is in front and one is in back.Stampin' Up! Handmade Impossible Card Template / Tutorial with measurements

I layered Wild Wasabi CS over the top by cutting a rectangle, 4″ x  2 1/2″ and scoring across the short side at 2″.  I then cut down, 3/4″ from the edge to the score line.  This left me with a sort of L shaped piece of card stock.  Then I stamped  leaves on each piece with Wild Wasabi and Garden Green ink. For the center (pop up) piece, I cut a layer of Wild Wasabi and one of Very Vanilla CS both cut to 3 1/4″ x 1 3/4″. Leaves were stamped onto the Wild Wasabi piece and the “inside” greeting was stamped on the Very Vanilla piece with Garden Green ink and attached to the card base.

Stampin' Up! Handmade Impossible Card Template / Tutorial with measurements

I stamped the dinosaur in Wild Wasabi ink onto a scrap of Very Vanilla CS and then stamped the bones over that in Garden Green ink. The dinosaur was then fussy cut out with the paper snips.  When I was going to attach it, I didn’t like the way it looked to be floating in the air, so I cut a strip of Chocolate Chip CS as “ground” to go under it.  The “ground” was  cut to 3 1/2″ x 1/2″ and has the footprints stamped in Early Espresso ink behind the dinosaur. Then when I attached the dinosaur with mini dimensionals, it looked much better. On the bottom front is a strip that keeps the card stable.  This consists of a 5 1/2″ x 1″ strip of Garden Green CS and a 5 1/2″ x 3/4″ strip of Very Vanilla.  I stamped the greeting in Wild Wasabi ink and the leaves in Garden Green ink and it’s attached to the card on each side (be sure not to put adhesive in the section that goes over the blank spot.  This card will then fit into a medium envelope.

To see more retiring products you can visit my online store in the Last Chance Products section. The nice thing about going directly to the store is that it has photos AND it is continually updated as things sell out.  Remember that stamp sets are available until May 25th, but everything else retiring is already “while supplies last” and some things have already sold out!

Family First Pals Blog Hop

Hi Stampers.

Welcome to the Pals April  2018 Blog Hop. Join us while we put “Families First” in our hop this month. The Stampin’ Pretty Pals will inspire you with family related projects like Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Graduation or Family Vacations. You may be just starting or hopped over from another Pal. In either case you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

For my card, I chose to use the Stampin’ Up! Truly Tailored stamp set and the True Gentleman DSP.  These two items are on the list to be retired May 31st. I think this is a great combination for masculine cards.

Stampin' Up! Truly Tailored stamp set with True Gentleman DSP by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts with a Chocolate Chip card base, 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″. (The color Chocolate Chip is retiring too.) The True Gentleman DSP was cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhered with snail adhesive. I then cut a piece of Night of Navy CS 4 1/4″ x 1 1/4″ and another piece of coordinating DSP 4 1/4″ x 1″.  The banner triple punch was perfect for flagging the ends of these two pieces.  I then layered one on top of the other and adhered them together and then to the card front. The greeting was stamped from the Truly Tailored stamp set in Early Espresso ink onto Very Vanilla CS and then punched out with the coordinating Tailored Tag Punch. Stampin’ dimensionals made the greeting pop of the card.

I lined the inside of the card with a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Very Vanilla CS.  The sentiment, also from the Truly Tailored stamp set, was stamped in Early Espresso ink.  I also used Early Espresso ink to stamp the bow tie stamp in the upper left and lower right corner.  It’s now ready to be given to a gentleman celebrating a birthday.

Sneak Peek Blog Hop

The-Remarkable-Inkbig-Blog-Hop

Hi Stampers.

Welcome to the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop for December 2017.  This month our theme is Sneak Peek: 2018 Occasions & Sale-a-Bration Catalogs!  You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – Lisa Ann Bernard @ Queen B Creations or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects.

Stampin' Up! Bubble Over Beer Bottle Birthday Card by lisa Ann Benard of Queen B Creations

For my sneak peek – I decided to use the Bubble Over bundle.  The Bubble Over stamps set and coordinating Bottles and Bubbles Framelit dies.  This is an awesome bundle for making cards for lots of occasions and as you can see here – make a great masculine card!  I don’t know about you, but I am always looking for ideas for the men in my life!

My card starts out with a Chocolate Chip card base – 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″.  The background is two sides of some coodinating DSP that is only available for FREE.  You heard me right – ONLY AVAILABLE FOR FREE!  The Bubbles & Fizz DSP is a free item in the 2018 Sale-a-bration brochure.  When you buy the bundle, cardstock and glitter & clear epoxy shapes used to make this card you get the DSP for free!

The DSP was cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″ and then an additional strip of the same DSP was cut to the height of the bottle caps and 4″ wide.  This showcases the two sides of the same DSP.  I then die cut the bottles from Chocolate Chip CS, the labels from Crumb Cake CS and the bottle caps in Basic Grey CS.  I stamped the sentiment onto the “labels” in Memento Black ink.  I attached the labels to the bottles and then the bottles to the card front.  I put one bottle cap onto a bottle and put one below – like it had been opened.

As a bit of an accent, I had sponged some Chocolate Chip ink onto the bottles (before attaching them) and then added the new Glitter & Clear epoxy shapes to make it look like bubbles and bottle condensation.  Too cute!

For the inside of the card, I used a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Whisper White CS and added a 4″ x 3/8″ strip of DSP along the bottom.  I stamped the sentiment and bubbles (from the Bubble Over stamp set) in Bermuda Bay ink.  I’m just thrilled on how this card came out and can’t wait to make it in a class next month! (Remember, if you are not local you can order the “class to go” option!).

Stampin’ Blends Are Here!

Stampin' Up! Stampin' Blend Markers new alcohol based markers for coloring

Hi Stampers.

I’m excited to announce that TODAY is the day!  Today is the day that customers can order the fabulous Stampin’ Blends!  As a demo, I was able to order them a while back and I can’t begin to tell you how fabulous they are!  These new, high quality, alcohol markers will help you take your shaded coloring to the next level.  The are awesome!

stampin' Up! stampin' blends coloring alcohol markers new product queen b creations

This is the first card I made with them.  This shows how super easy they are.  I am not good at coloring, trust me.  That’s why I like stamping!  But, if I can do this good on my first try – it’s only gonna get better from here!

stampin up country livin' stamp set colored with the stampin' blends alcohol based coloring markers new product - Queen B Creations

This card starts with a Chocolate Chip card base, 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″.  I used the stamp set Country Livin’ and colored it in with the new alcohol markers. The truck was stamped onto a 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″ layer of Whisper White card stock using Memento Black ink. I used the Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends for the truck, Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends for the wood, Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends for the gas can, Old Olive Stampin’ Blends for the grass and then Smokey Slate Stampin’ Blends for the tires and bumper.

To add a little bit of color to the windows and the headlights, I used just a little bit of the light Smokey Slate Stampin’ Blend marker and the color lifter.  I wrapped some linen thread around the Whisper White layer and mounted it onto a 5″ x 3 3/4″ layer of Marina Mist card stock with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The Marina Mist layer was then adhered to the card base with snail adhesive.

For the inside of the card, I used a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White card stock and stamped the boots in Memento Black ink and colored them with the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends and used the Old Olive Stampin’ Blends to add a little grass under them.

I’m soooo happy with these new alcohol markers and I know you will be too!  I’ve included a supply list with links to my online store so that you can purchase them for yourself.  You won’t regret it!
