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.

Snowflake Showcase Blog Hop

Hi Stampers. Thank you for stopping by my blog on today’s blog hop featuring the limited release Snowflake Showcase!  During the month of November only – Stampin’ Up! is featuring some new limited release products. We are here to show you all the ways these great new products can be used!

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Showcase special for November 2018 Limited Release products

The Snowflake Showcase features TWO new stamp sets and a fantastic new set of framelits that work with BOTH stamp sets! In addition to that, there are some cute snowflake embellishments and some fabulous Whisper White velvet paper!  What’s not to love????

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Showcase Snow is Glistening stamp set Christmas card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For my card I’m choosing to use a new fold I recently discovered.  It’s a great way to use our gorgeous Designer Series Papers!  This card starts with a Merry Merlot card base that is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.  The Joyous Noel DSP layer is 8″ x 4″, scored at 4″ and 2″ and folded in an “N”.

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Showcase Snow is Glistening stamp set Christmas card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The top of the card has a 3″ x 4 1/4″ layer of Merry Merlot CS and 2 3/4″ x 4″ Very Vanilla CS. Onto the Very Vanilla layer, I stamped the tree in Shaded Spruce ink and the trunk in Soft Suede ink. (Note: the tree stamp is taller than shown, I just inked the top part of the tree and not the bottom, making it shorter).

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Showcase Snow is Glistening stamp set Christmas card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I rubbed the Very Vanilla layer withe my embossing buddy (to prevent powder from sticking where I didn’t want it). Then I stamped the snowflakes with Versamark ink and heat embossed them with copper embossing powder – this made them match the DSP I used. Some shimmery embossing paste under the tree gives the look of snow and some rhinestones (colored with Stampin’ Blends or Sharpie markers) give the look of ornaments.

The inside of the card has the same size CS inserts.  (Merry Merlot CS – 3″ x 4 1/4″ and Very Vanilla CS – 2 3/4″ x 4″). I stamped the sentiment and falling snowflakes onto the Very Vanilla layer with Merry Merlot ink using the hinge method of stamping on my Stamparatus. The falling snowflakes stamp was designed to work with the Stamparatus for perfect placement to continue a row of these without a space or overlapping – how awesome is that!?!?

Here is a photo giving you an idea of how the card opens. I just love how it came out and I hope you do too!

Video Tutorial:

Here is the video of my recent Facebook Live showing how to make this card.

I encourage you to follow along on the hop and check out all the fun ideas my fellow demonstrators are sharing. Should you need to order any supplies for this project (and you don’t already have a demonstrator) I would love to add you to my VIPs.

Best Birds Birthday

Hi Stampers. Today I’d like to share with you a card that we made in class last spring using the stamp set Best Birds from Stampin’ Up! This adorable card is quick and easy to make.

Handmade birthday card made with Stampin' Up! Best Birds, Tripple Banner Punch and the Woodland TIEF by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts with a Soft Suede card base, 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored a 4 1/4″. Next up is a 4″ x 5 1/4″ layer of Very Vanilla cardstock that I ran through the Big Shot with the Woodlands textured impressions embossing folder. The banner is made by using a 2″ x 5″ strip of cardstock (I used Marina Mist here – that has since retired, but any color would work). The end of the banner was punched with the Triple Banner Punch.  The dry embossed layer is adhered to the card front and the banner was adhered over that with snail adhesive.

Handmade birthday card made with Stampin' Up! Best Birds, Tripple Banner Punch and the Woodland TIEF by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The bird and branch from the Stampin’ Up! Best Birds stamp set was stamped onto a 3″ x 3″ square of Very Vanilla CS in Soft Suede ink. I mounted that onto a 3 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ square of Soft Suede CS with snail adhesive and then the two of those were adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The Birds & Blooms Thinlits Dies has a small flower that can be used to die cut the two flowers that I added to the upper left and lower right corners of the focal point square.  I added a basic Pearl Jewel in the center of each flower.

The interior of the card is lined with a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Very Vanilla CS.  I stamped the branches and the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Best Birds set in Soft Suede ink on to this layer and then used snail adhesive to adhere it to the interior of the card.

Again, I apologize that I used a retired color, but I hope this layout gets you thinking.  This same layout can be done in a variety of colors and using a variety of stamp sets and embossing folders.  Use this card as a starting point to YOUR amazing creation!
