Outdoor Barbeque

Hi Stampers. Do you have a man (or men) in your life who love to Outdoor Barbecue?  If so, keep reading.  I realize it’s a little early to be talking Father’s Day (well, maybe not for those of us making lots of cards), but this adorable stamp set is retiring.  I was so excited to see this set in our January – June 2020 Mini Catalog, because my husband loves to barbecue.  Therefore, I was sad to see it leave so quickly.

Stampin' Up! Outdoor Barbeque Grill masculine card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I started with a Basic Gray card base and then made my own background paper with the smaller stamps from the Outdoor Barbecue set. I used the barbecue as the main focal point by stamping it onto a piece of Whisper White CS and cutting it out with the largest square from the Stitched Shapes Dies. Then all stamped images were colored using the Watercolor Pencils. Blender pens were then used to blend the color a little.

The gingham design from the DSP stacks (also retiring) seems liked the perfect picnic print.  I chose the Blueberry Bushel CS (a 2018-2020 In-Color… also retiring…) and Blueberry Bushel gingham to add down the middle of my card.  Next, I used more Blueberry Bushel CS and a scalloped square from the Layering Squares Dies to back the outdoor barbecue. The squares were then attached to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Inside the card is another layer of Whisper White CS and added a strip of DSP down the left side.  The sentiment (from the Outdoor Barbecue stamp set) was stamped in Blueberry Bushel ink.

Mountain Air

Hi Stampers, have you played with the Mountain Air bundle yet?  It makes some great scenes.  This stamp set is also designed so you can use both sides of the stamp.  For this card, I only used the detail side.  Stay tuned, I will use the both sides in another post.  I wanted to keep this card quick and easy.

Stampin' Up! Mountain Air bundle handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

A Soft Suede card base frames this Seaside Spray background layer.  Using the Mountain Air stamp set, the mountains were stamped in White ink onto Early Espresso CS and the trees were stamped in Mossy Meadow ink on Mossy Meadow CS.  Both of these were then die cut using the coordinating Majestic Mountain dies.

I adhered the mountains and the trees to the Seaside Spray layer on the card front.  Next, I stamped the clouds and moon in White ink and colored in the clouds using the White Chalk Marker. A few birds in the sky were added using the bird stamp and Basic Gray ink.

Inside the card is a Very Vanilla layer with the trees stamped in Mossy Meadow ink.  I used the same stamp and ink to stamp the trees on the flap of a Very Vanilla envelope to go with it.  What would you create with this bundle?

Pedal To The Metal

Hi Stampers. After another weekend sheltered in place, I’m longing for a weekend of fun with friends. One of those fun activities in Idaho is riding around in ATVs and go karts, such as the one is this great masculine stamp set – Pedal to the Metal.

Stampin' Up! Pedal to the Metal go cart masculine card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card has a Basic Black card base, followed by a layer of Real Red CS.  Before adhering the Real Red CS to the card base I stamped the go kart all over the layer in Real Red ink.

Stampin' Up! Pedal to the Metal go cart masculine card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Next, I stamped the go kart (from the Pedal to the Metal stamp set) in Memento Black ink onto a piece of Whisper White CS and then die cut it out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I colored the go card using Stampin’ Blends and then sponged Soft Suede ink to the lower part and Balmy Blue to the upper part.  This layer was then attached to the card front using stampin’ dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Pedal to the Metal go cart masculine card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The inside of the card has a Whisper White layer that has been sponged in a similar way to the one on the front (Soft Suede on the bottom and Balmy Blue on the top).  A sentiment in the center and tire tracks across the bottom are stamped in Memento black ink.  The moon is from the Mountain Air stamp set and was stamped in Balmy Blue.  The Pedal to the Metal stamp set is great for creating masculine cards for guys birthday or even Father’s Day.  🙂

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.

Stampin' Up! A Good Man Pull Tab Father's Day Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

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.

Stampin' Up! A Good Man Pull Tab Father's Day Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

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!

Stampin' Up! A Good Man Pull Tab Father's Day Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

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

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.

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

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.

Stampin' Up! Patriotic Alternative Handmade American Flag card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

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!
