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.

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…

Country Floral All Adorned

Hi Stampers. You are pretty much the BEST ever!  I have some great customers and I am so thankful for those of you who support me in a job that I love.  It means the world to me to be able to work from home doing what I love doing and earning money doing it! This card is for you!

Stampin' Up! Country Floral TIEF colored with Stampin' Blends handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This beautiful card starts with a Petal Pink card base – 11″ x 4-1/4″, scored at 5-1/2″.  This makes the card open from the bottom and flip up. Next i used the Country Floral Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and Big Shot to dry emboss a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White CS. Next, I colored the flowers ad leaves using Stampin’ Blends.

For the focal point and sentiment, I used the Layering Ovals Framelit Dies to cut ovals out of Petal Pink CS and Whisper White CS. The sentiment, from the All Adorned stamp set, was stamped onto the Whisper White oval using Crumb Cake ink. I adhered all these pieces to the card base using snail adhesive. The bow was made out of 3/8″ Crumb Cake Classic Weave ribbon and attached with glue dots.

For the inside of the card, I cut a Whisper White layer of CS – 4″ x 5-1/4″. The flower, from the Painted Seasons stamp set, was stamped in Petal Pink ink in the lower right corner. I got this idea for this card from a friend, Candy Ford. She made this card without coloring the flowers, it looked very pretty that way, too.

Big Shot Embossing Mats

Hi Stampers. I have a fun technique for you today using the Stampin’ Up! Embossing Mats.  They are kind of a sleeper item in the catalog. The mats can easily be over looked if you don’t know what they are and how awesome they are! Look in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog on page 221, under Big Shot Accessories.

Stampin' Up! Big Shot embossing mats Be Mine Stitched and Garage Gears framelit dies by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts out with a Basic Black card base, 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. The next layer is a 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″ layer of Basic Gray CS followed by a 5″ x 3-3/4″ piece of Real Red CS. I used a sentiment stamp from the Geared Up Garage stamp set to stamp “you jump start my heart” all over the Real Red layer of CS in Real Red ink.  I used my Stamparatus so that the placement was evenly spaced, but could be stamped randomly by hand if you wish.

Stampin' Up! Big Shot embossing mats Be Mine Stitched and Garage Gears framelit dies by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The heart was die cut on the Big Shot using the Be Mine Stitched Framelit Dies out of Silver Foil paper. At the same time, I used the Garage Gears Thinlits Dies to die cut the car emblem out of Silver Foil paper and Whisper White CS. I used the Silver Foil outer part and Whisper White inner part to create the element in the lower right corner.  Using the same sentiment that I used on the background, I stamped onto the Whisper White inner part using Basic Gray ink. The layers were adhered to the card base using snail adhesive and the car emblem was adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I used the Big Shot embossing mats and the large gears (cutting) die from the Garage Gears Thinlits Dies create the dry embossed gears in the Silver Foil heart.  You can see more about how I did that in the following video:

Dashing Deer Fancy Fold Card

Hi Stampers.

 

Stampin' Up! Dashing Deer Joyous Noel DSP fancy fold Christmas card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For today’s card I am once again using this new fold I recently discovered. It’s just too fun and a great way to use our gorgeous Designer Series Papers! This card starts with a Soft Suede 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”.

The top of the card has a 3″ x 4-1/4″ layer of Soft Suede CS, a 2-7/8″ x 4-1/8″ layer of crumb cake and 2-3/4″ x 4″ Very Vanilla CS. Onto the Very Vanilla layer, I stamped the tree in from the Stampin’ Up Winter Woods stamp set in Shaded Spruce ink and sponges some Crumb Cake ink to simulate ground.

Using the deer from the Dashing Deer stamp set, I inked up the deer’s body with Soft Suede ink and the antlers I inked with a Soft Suede marker. I then cut out the deer with the coordinating Detailed Deer Thinlit dies and attached it to the Very Vanilla layer with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

EEK It’s a Halloween Eclipse Card

Hi Stampers. EEK!  It’s here! The end of October AND Halloween!  I have another Halloween card for you, using the eclipse technique.  This card is very similar to the BOO card I did on Monday.  See that card HERE.

Toil & Trouble Eclipse Technique EEK Halloween card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I’m a huge fan of the eclipse technique! This card started with a Pumpkin Pie card base, 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″. Next is a 5 1/4″ x 4″ layer of Basic Black CS and then a 5″ x 3 3/4″ layer of Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper.

Toil & Trouble Eclipse Technique EEK Halloween card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I used the Large Letter Framelit Dies to cut the word “EEK” out of the DSP on my Big Shot. Next, I used mini stampin’ dimensionals to pop them up (Monday’s card used fun foam to lift the letters off of the card base). The DSP (without the letters) is adhered to the card base first. Next, you add mini stampin’ dimensionals to the backs of the letters and then insert them into the holes where they go (making sure the pattern lines up).

Toil & Trouble Eclipse Technique EEK Halloween card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For the greeting, I used a 1″ x 4″ strip of Pumpkin Pie CS and a 3/4″ x 4″ strip of Very Vanilla CS. I stamped the greeting, from the Stampin’ Up! Cauldron Bubble stamp set, in Pumpkin Pie ink onto the VV strip. The ends of both strips were flagged with the Banner Triple Punch. I added three gems to the end of the strips and popped them onto the card front with stampin’ dimensionals.

Inside the card is lined with a 5 1/4″ x 4″ layer of Very Vanilla CS. The cauldron and cat were cut out of the Toil & Trouble DSP using the Cauldron Framelit Dies that coordinate with the Cauldron Bubble stamp set – the frog was fussy cut using paper snips. I adhered the cauldron, cat and frog using multipurpose liquid adhesive. The greeting Bubble, Bubble, Toil & Trouble is stamped in Pumpkin Pie ink.

Ribbon of Courage Roses

Hi Stampers. Wow, the month of October just flew by!  October is breast cancer awareness month. I wanted to be sure and post this card using the Stampin’ Up! Ribbon of Courage stamp set before October ended.  This card is perfect for anyone battling breast cancer.  Of course, you can change up the color and have it represent any cancer survivor.

I this new fold I have discovered.  It’s simple and yet a little bit different.  This card starts with a Blushing Bride card base that is just 4″ x 5 1/2″. Next is a 8″ x 5 1/4″ layer of Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper.  The DSP was scored at 4″ and again at 2″ and is then folded into a Z pattern.

Stampin' Up! Ribbon of Courage handmade card for breast cancer by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The top of the card has a 3″ x 4 1/4″ layer of Blushing Bride CS and 2 3/4″ x 4″ Whisper White CS. Onto the Whisper White layer, I stamped the ribbon (from the Stampin’ Up! Ribbon of Courage stamp set) in Blushing Bride ink.  The word “couage” was stamped onto a 3″ x 1/2″ strip of Whisper White in Blushing Bride ink.  I then flagged the ends with my paper snips and sponged the edges with Blushing Bride ink. The banner was attached to the card front with stampin’ dimensionals.

The inside of the card also has a 3″ x 4 1/4″ layer of Blushing Bride CS and 2 3/4″ x 4″ Whisper White CS. Onto the Whisper White layer, I stamped the sentiment (also from the Stampin’ Up! Ribbon of Courage stamp set) in Blushing Bride ink.
