Sailing Home Nautical Lighthouse Card

Hi Stampers. Happy Friday!  I started the day off a bit behind.  It’s been a crazy week!  Some of you know that we recently got a new Puppy.  Pixie is a 4 month old, four pound, Toy Poodle.  She fell down the stairs on Tuesday morning and broke her leg.  Broke it so bad that she needed surgery to have pins put in.  She got to come home late yesterday afternoon and has the one leg taped to her body, so she walks on the other three.  She’s been needing some extra TLC.

Today I’m sharing a card made with the Sailing Home bundle. This is an awesome masculine set!  The above card is done in Night of Navy and Balmy Blue with a touch of Crumb Cake and Basic Gray.

I am normally not good at things being off kilter a little.  But, I love that middle layer of CS and DSP being at a bit of an angle.  It reminds me of how the sea tends to tilt as you sail along…

The sentiment is stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White and punched out with the Everyday label punch and the edges were sponged with Night of Navy ink using a sponge dauber.  That label and the lighthouse and anchor are popped up on stampin’ dimensionals. The twine gives some great texture for this card.

On the interior of the card, I stamped the sentiment in the center and the ropes in either corner.  It’s now ready to send off!

Sailing Home Notecards

Hi Stampers. This is a Sailing Home notecard I made back in April at OnStage. OnStage is our live Stampin’ Up! event. The April one was in Salt Lake City, Utah and we were the first to be given the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  I will be attending the next one in November in Las Vegas, Nevada and will get a copy of the new 2020 Occasions Catalog and 2020 Sale-a-bration brochure!  Who wants to join me?

Stampin' Up! handmade notecard from OnStage Stampin' Up! event using the Sailing Home Bundle by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card was nice and simple because it started with our Very Vanilla pre-cut and pre-scored notecards with envelopes. That was followed by some of the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper. Using Soft Suede ink the compass was stamped onto the Very Vanilla CS. The Lighthouse was stamped in Night of Navy ink onto a scrap of Very Vanilla and die cut using the Smooth Sailing Dies. Snail adhesive made attaching the Designer Series papers and Very Vanilla layer to the notecard base easy. To give it some “pop” the lighthouse is adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  All the stamps used in this card are from the Sailing Home stamp set.  You can save 10% if you buy this as a bundle with the Smooth Sailing Dies.

The sentiment was stamped onto a scrap of Balmy Blue CS in Night of Navy ink and punched out using the Everyday Label Punch.  Stampin’ Dimensionals were used to attach the sentiment to the card front.  A small piece of Shara Sand / Night of Navy Bakers Twine attached to an anchor from the Sail Away Trinkets gives the notecard adds some nice texture.  These were attached using Mini Glue Dots.

To make this look like a complete set, the envelope was stamped using some stamps that are also from this stamp set.  The sailboat is stamped in Night of Navy and the compass and birds are stamped in Soft Suede ink. How cute is this?

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.

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

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…

Are you more of a visual learner? Here is a video explaining more on how this card was made:

Layering Alphabet Rock On

Hi Stampers. For today’s card we ROCK ON with the leftovers from Friday’s card.  The letters ROCK were die cut using the Layering Alphabet Edgelit Dies, one side was used for Friday’s card and the rest for today’s card.

Stampin' Up! Lined Alphabet and Layering Alphabet dies rock on handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I started with a Thick Whisper White card base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″.  Next, I layered together the left over from Friday’s card in Night of Navy CS, Balmy Blue CS, Smoky Slate CS and Basic Gray CS. I glued the layers together using Tombow Liquid Glue and trimmed them all down to be a total of 4″ x 5-1/4″.  This grouping was them adhered to the card base using Liquid Glue.

Then, I used the Layering Alphabet Edgelits Dies to die cut an O and an N out of scraps of Whisper White CS.  To use the letters I just trimmed off the triangle part and adhered them in the lower right corner of my card front.

I hope you give this card a try.  If you do, don’t forget to save the center of the O from the Smokey Slate CS so you can adhere it to the card front in the center of the O.

Below, I have listed all the supplies used in the making of this card, please purchase the supplies from my online store.  If you are looking for a demonstrator – I’d love to be YOUR Stampin’ Up! demonstrator!

You Rock Lined Alphabet

Hi Stampers. In keeping with the theme from Wednesday, I’m using the Lined Alphabet stamp set and Layering Alphabet Edgelits Dies to create a card for my customers.  You rock!

Stampin' Up! Lined Alphabet Layering Alphabet edgelits you rock card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts with a Night of Navy card base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. Next, I used the Layering Alphabet Edgelits Dies and my Big Shot to die cut the letters R O C K out of Balmy Blue CS, Smoky Slate CS, Pacific Point CS and Basic Gray CS. (I started with a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of cardstock for each letter – I will use the reverse for Monday’s card, so don’t throw away the other half.)  The word YOU was die cut from a scrap of Night of Navy CS using my Big Shot and the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies.

Stampin' Up! Lined Alphabet Layering Alphabet edgelits you rock card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I stamped the letter over the die cut of the letter using Memento Black ink and the Lined Alphabet stamp set.  It was easier to die cut first and stamp afterwards so that I could arrange the die as needed.  Stamping the letters was made easier by the fact that these stamps are photopolymer and you can see through them.

Stampin' Up! Lined Alphabet Layering Alphabet edgelits you rock card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

All the layers were adhered together and then to the card base using Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue. From the edge of the Balmy Blue to the outer edge of the K, the layers should total 4″ x 5-1/4″.

I hope you enjoy today’s card.  This is a really fun bundle to work with.  If you are interested, I suggest you purchase this bundle before June 1st. All supplies used are listed below with links to my online store. I don’t yet know if the stamp set and dies will carry over, but if it does it will not be bundled for the 10% discount.  The bundle discounts only apply to stamp sets with dies or punch the first time they appear in a catalog.  After that, they need to be purchased separately.
