A Good Man – Pull Tab Card Technique

Hi Stampers. Today’s card is a pull tab card technique – it’s a bit of a fancy fold / fun fold card.  I used the A Good Man stamp set from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  The video tutorial below gives full instructions and measurements to make this card.

The Blueberry Bushel base of the card is 11″ x 4-1/4″, scored at 5-1/2″.  I stamped the front of the card using the heart from the A Good Man stamp set and Blueberry Bushel ink.  The Stamparatus “hinge stamping” technique was used to keep the hearts all even and uniform in placement.

The slide part was cut and scored using the Paper Trimmer. I just love this image, it reminds me of my husband and son MANY, MANY years ago!  It’s colored using the fabulous Stampin’ Blends!

I used a 1/8″ circle punch to punch a hole at the top of the center panel and threaded the ribbon through it for something to pull on.  (This would also be a great use for a crop-a-dile.)

The Seaside Spray and Blueberry Bushel are beautiful together. I love the way they look layered on the front of the card. When adhering this front panel, be sure to only ad adhesive to the bottom, so that it opens properly. 🙂

A Patriotic Welcome Home

Hi Stampers.  Do you ever need a card for an occasion and can’t find the right stamp set?  Don’t panic.  Just think outside the box.  I needed to create a patriotic card and did not have a current patriotic stamp set.  So, I had to think…  What do I consider patriotic?  Red, White and Blue – that’s easy.  I have cardstock and ink for that.  Then I was looking over my other stamp sets and thought this couple from the Silhouette Scenes stamp set and thought that looked like an embrace of a soldier coming home.  That’s patriotic, right?!?!  Now I’m off and running…..

Card #1:

Stampin' Up! Welcome Home Patriotic / Military card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This first card I came up with combined quite a few items from my stampin’ stash. As stated above, the couple is from Silhouette Scenes.  The Night of Navy stars were from the Stitched Stars Dies and colored in with a Real Red Stampin’ Blend. Sentiments were die cut in Real Red CS using the Well Written and Hand Lettered Prose Dies.

Stampin’ Tip: The Stamparatus was a great tool in making this card because it allowed me to stamp the couple multiple times ensuring that it was good and dark.

Stampin' Up! Welcome Home Patriotic / Military card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I kept the inside of the card by stamping the stars (from So Many Stars) and the sentiment (from Well Said) in Night of Navy ink.

Card #2:

Stampin' Up! Welcome Home Patriotic / Military card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For my FB Live video I was looking to re-create card #1, but chose to use the stars that popped out of the die, instead of die cutting it again.  I like this look better…

Stampin’ Tip: When adhering the letters to spell “home”, I started on the right with the “E” and worked my way left to the “H” to be sure I had enough room.

Inside the card, I stamped the couple again and the sentiment from the same, Silhouette Scenes, stamp set. (Again, LOVE my Stamparatus!!)

Card #3:

For this card I made an American Flag – well, as close as I could get with my supplies.  The red and white stripes were on the backside of the Let It Show Christmas DSP.  A square of blue and a few white stars and poof – it’s a flag.

I kept the inside red, white and blue with stars.  The sentiment is from Well Said – a great all around set of sentiments and the stars are from the Christmas set – So Many Stars.

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…

Stampin' Up! Sailing Home handmade nautical lighthouse anchor card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

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:
