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).

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.

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.

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…

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.

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.

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!
