Plastic Wrap Smoosh Technique

Hi Stampers. I have a fun technique to share with you today.  You may have seen this on my FB Live video a few weeks ago.  The background is made using the plastic wrap smoosh technique.

Stampin' Up! Magical Mermaid colored with Stampin' Blends on a plastic wrap smoosh technique background by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This fun card starts with a Coastal Cabana card base, 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″.  Using the Magical Mermaid stamp set, I stamped the mermaid onto a scrap of Whisper White CS and colored with the Stampin’ Blends. This piece is fairly easy to fussy cut with paper snips, but I chose to use my Brother Scan N Cut machine.

This awesome look to the background is created by applying the ink to the Whisper White CS using a plastic baggie. For the sentiment, I inked the stamp using Stampin’ Write Markers before stamping it onto the background layer. The layer is then attached to the card base using snail adhesive.

Stampin’ Tip: I mounted the sentiment stamp onto the clear block and then placed it stamp side up on the table and used the brush end of the stampin’ write markers to apply ink.  This allows me to color the different words, different colors.

After coloring the Magical Mermaid with the Stampin’ Blends, I covered it with Wink of Stella, this gave it some beautiful sparkle! Next, I attached it to the card front using stampin’ dimensionals.

I decorated the inside of the card to coordinate with the outside.  The sand stamp is super cute – it has little sea shells and critters in the sand.

Stampin’ Tip: I stamped the sand first and then covered it up with some scrap paper before stamping the sea weed.  This allowed me to stamp the seaweed in different heights.

The card is now ready to be mailed off to someone with a birthday to bring a smile to their face!

A handmade card is like a hug with a fold in the middle.

These are the measurements:

  • Coastal Cabana CS:  8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″
  • Whisper White CS: 5-1/4″ x 4″ (2);  approx. 4-1/2″ x 2-1/4″

ICS Blog Hop Floating Frame Technique

Hi Stampers.  Welcome to my debut on the Inspire, Create & Share Blog Hop Team.  Today our theme is Beautiful Bundles! I chose to do a floating frame technique with the It Starts With Art bundle.

Stampin' Up! It Starts With Art floating frame technique tutorial instructions by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card is made using Glad Press & Seal.  I found mine to be a bit too sticky, so I patted it with my hands (letting the oils from my hands transfer to the press & seal) making it less sticky.

Stampin' Up! It Starts With Art floating frame technique tutorial instructions by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I started by stamping the items from the It Starts With Art stamp set in Memento Black ink onto Whisper White CS and coloring them with my Stampin’ Blends.  They were then cut out using the Arts & Crafts Dies and placed randomly on a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Whisper White CS.

Stampin' Up! It Starts With Art floating frame technique tutorial instructions by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Next, I placed the press & seal over the top of the pieces and trimmed off the excess with my paper snips.  Can you tell that my press & seal was decorated in Disney Frozen… LOL

Stampin' Up! It Starts With Art floating frame technique tutorial instructions by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Using a circle die from the Layering Circles Dies, I cut a circle from the middle of this layer (with the press & seal still in place).

Stampin' Up! It Starts With Art floating frame technique tutorial instructions by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

After cutting the circle out, I gently pealed off the press & seal, keeping the stamped pieces on the plastic wrap. Next, I used ALOT of stampin’ dimensionals – regular size and mini to place a dimensional on every single piece of CS.

Stampin' Up! It Starts With Art floating frame technique tutorial instructions by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For card one, I used a Gorgeous Grape cardbase – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″.  The outside layer from the process above was placed onto a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Whisper White by exposing the sticky on the dimensionals and placing the CS very gently removing the press & seal.  I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap of Whisper White CS in Coastal Cabana ink and punched it out with the 1″ circle punch. Using the Stitched Shapes Dies, I die cut a slightly larger stitched circle from Highland Heather CS.  I mounted the two of these in the center of the circle in the card front.

Stampin' Up! It Starts With Art floating frame technique tutorial instructions by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For this card, I stamped onto a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Whisper White CS. For the buttons I just stamped directly onto the inside of the card base using Coastal Cabana, Highland Heather & Blushing Bride.  For the ink bottle I stamped with the Memento Black ink and colored with the Stampin’ Blends.

Stampin' Up! It Starts With Art floating frame technique tutorial instructions by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For card two, I used a Thick Whisper White CS – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″.  Onto this card front, I exposed the sticky on the dimensionals and attached the circle part of the process above and then very gently removed the press and seal.  I stamped the sentiment in Coastal Cabana ink onto a 3/4″ x 3-1/2″ strip of Whisper White CS. Next, I cut a strip of Blushing Bride CS 1″ x 3-1/2″, a strip of Coastal Cabana CS 3/4″ x 4″ and a piece of Highland Heather CS 1/2″ x 4-1/4.  I flagged the end of each of these strips using the Triple Banner Punch and then arranged and attached them to the lower part of the card front using snail adhesive.

Stampin' Up! It Starts With Art floating frame technique tutorial instructions by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Because this is a Whisper White cardbase, there was no need to line the inside.  For the buttons I just stamped directly onto the inside of the card base using Coastal Cabana, Highland Heather & Blushing Bride.  For the ink bottle I stamped with the Memento Black ink and colored with the Stampin’ Blends.

I did this technique with a different stamp set for one of my Facebook Lives on my FaceBook Page.  You can find that and many other great ideas on my YouTube channel.

This Little Piggy Barn Door Card

Hi Stampers.  Happy Monday!  It’s a new week.  Hopefully, this week is a little calmer at my house than it was last week.  Four of the grandkids and their parents from California were in and out too quickly the first half of the week.  That was wonderful, but way too short!!  The next day, our neighbors FIVE German Shephards dug under the 6′ fence, over a 3′ fence and pushed a wire fence out of the way to enter our backyard and try to come in our doggie door.  If you remember, I have two poodles.  Sophie is a 14 lb miniature poodle and Pixie is a 2-1/2 lb toy poodle.  Needless to say, we were all a bit spooked.  After about 3 hours of animal control, our landlord and multiple neighbors, they are safely tucked back into their own yard.  This week, I plan to be back to work!

Stampin' Up! This Little Piggy Interactive Barn Door card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Today, I’m showcasing an interactive Barn Door card with piggies.  This card uses the Barn Door stamp set / Sliding Door dies and the This Little Piggy stamp set. Isn’t it adorable?  The card base is Pool Party card stock – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. To give this card the “wood” look, I dry embossed a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Pool Party CS using the Pinewood Planks embossing folder.  But, before I did that, I used the die cut from the sliding door dies, to create the “tracks” that the  door slides back and forth in.

Stamping Tip: If you plan to die cut into or stamp onto a layer of cardstock that will be dry embossed (in most cases) you will want to do the die cutting and stamping BEFORE you dry emboss.  Die cutting first means that the die cutting process will not  flatten  out the embossing when you run it through the die cutting machine again. Stamping before you dry emboss means that the stamps and ink will make  full contact before the dry embossing makes it an uneven surface.

Stampin' Up! This Little Piggy Interactive Barn Door card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The dry embossed layer is attached using the foam strips above and below the “tracks”. A mini stampin’ dimensional is between two #6 washers. (I made a video using Cherry Cobbler and the Over the Moon stamp set.  Look for that FB Live on my Facebook Page or soon on my YouTube channel). I stamped onto a Whisper White piece of CS that is 4-1/4″ x 2-1/2″.  On the left side, I stamped the pig in Blushing Bride ink and colored it with my (retired) Pink Pirouette Stampin’ Blends. The grass is accented in light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend.  For the pigs hooves, I used the light Basic Black Stampin Blend and the dark Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blend.

Stampin' Up! This Little Piggy Interactive Barn Door card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

On the right side of the Whisper White layer, I stamped the “Loves You” sentiment in Blushing Bride ink and the kisses in Cherry Cobbler ink.  The door was stamped in Early Espresso ink onto a piece of Crumb Cake CS and die cut using the sliding door dies.  (Although, with all straight lines, it could be cut with scissors or trimmer). The “hardware” for the door is purely decorative and is die cut from Basic Black CS and adhered using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen.

Stampin' Up! This Little Piggy Interactive Barn Door card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The inside of the card has 5-1/4″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White CS onto which I stamped the pig and sentiment in Blushing Bride ink and colored with my Stampin’ Blends.  Isn’t it cute?!?  Who would you send this card too?

How to Stamp Buffalo Plaid Background

Hi Stampers. Today I’d like to share with you how to create a plaid background using the Stampin’ Up! Buffalo Check background stamp.  This stamp can be used just as it is or you can use your Stampin’ Write markers to create a plaid background for your handmade card.

Stampin' Up! Daisy Lane Buffalo Plaid stitched labels dies handmade smile card by lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

My card starts with a Mango Melody basic card base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. Next, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the Buffalo Check background in Crushed Curry ink onto a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White CS.

Stampin’ Tip: Using the Stamparatus allows you to stamp multiple time in the exact same location creating a darker more filled in image.

Using my Tim Holtz ruler and the fine tip end of a Mango Melody Stampin’ Write Marker, I drew a line between the checks vertically and horizontally.  I love that there is a line vertically and horizontally on the clear ruler.  This made it super simple to get perfect placement.

Stampin' Up! Daisy Lane Buffalo Plaid stitched labels dies handmade smile card by lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Using a die cutting machine and the Stitched Nested Label dies to cut labels out of Crumb Cake CS. Onto the smallest stitched label I stamped the word “smile” from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Early Espresso ink. The second (larger) label I placed onto the checkered background vertically and cut off the top (making it look like a banner). Onto the banner, I stamped two leaves (also from the Daisy Lane stamp set) in Garden Green ink.

Using Crushed Curry ink, I stamped one small and one large daisy onto Crushed Curry CS.  Next, I used the same stamps to stamp one large and one small daisy in Crushed Curry ink onto Whisper White CS. I punched out these daisies using the coordinating Daisy Punch and Medium Daisy Punch. The are layered on top of each other and attached using mini glue dots. The flowers are then attached to the card front using mini glue dots and a Gold Faceted Gem was placed in the center to finish it off.

For the interior of the card, I used a 4″ x 5-1/2″ layer of Whisper White CS.  Using the Daisy Lane stamp set, I stamped a small daisy in Crushed Curry ink in the lower left and upper right. The center is colored in with a Gold Wink of Stella.

How to Use Embossing Paste – Ombre’ Technique

Hi Stampers. Welcome to the Pals’ July  Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects that are “Mixing It Up” –  adding texture that will really take your projects up a notch – or two! You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Stampin Up! Leave a Little Sparkle handmade unicorn stamp using ombre method with embossing paste by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For my card, I decided to show you how to use the ombre’ technique using embossing paste.  How to use embossing paste may seem a little intimidating, but it’s really not. A little messy – yes – but, not hard. I used the Shimmery White Embossing paste and the highland heather and gorgeous grape ink refills to create the ombre’ effect.

Stampin Up! Leave a Little Sparkle handmade unicorn stamp using ombre method with embossing paste by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B CreationsInstructions:

The card starts with a Bermuda Bay card base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. Next up is a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Coastal Cabana CS. I applied the embossing paste to a 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ piece of Whisper White CS with the diamond mask from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks.

Stampin’ Tip:  To create the ombre’ effect with the embossing paste.  Starting with about a tablespoon of Shimmery White Embossing Paste on a piece of plastic, I added one drop of Highland Heather ink refill and stirred with the palette knife.  I then applied some to the upper left corner. Next, I added one more drop of the Highland Heather ink refill, stirred and applied more of the paste a little further down.  Finally, I added one drop of the Gorgeous Grape ink refill, stirred and applied it to the bottom of the mask. Voila! You have the ombre’ effect.

Stampin Up! Leave a Little Sparkle handmade unicorn stamp using ombre method with embossing paste by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

After adhering the Coastal Cabana CS to the card front, then the embossing paste layer to that using snail adhesive – it was time to add the unicorn.  Using the unicorn from the Leave a Little Sparkle stamp set, I stamped in Tuxedo black ink onto a piece of Whisper White CS. I colored the unicorn using the Stampin’ Blends markers. (LOVE those Stampin’ Blends!!)

Stampin Up! Leave a Little Sparkle handmade unicorn stamp using ombre method with embossing paste by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The unicorn did not have a die, but I wanted the unicorn cut out.  Enter my Brother Scan N Cut CM350 – I love this thing! I was able to load it into the machine, push a few buttons and poof – my unicorn was ready to go!  Using the Dark Smoky Slate blends I colored in the .004 border that I had told the machine to cut around my unicorn.  This gave it a little extra pop when I attached it to my card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin Up! Leave a Little Sparkle handmade unicorn stamp using ombre method with embossing paste by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

In the lower right corner I put the sentiment.  I inked my stamp “believe” using the Stampin’ Write markers – Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape.  The brush tip of both markers were applied to different areas of the stamp and then stamped onto the scrap of Whisper White CS.  Using the Layering Ovals Dies, I die cut the sentiment and then a scalloped oval from Bermuda Bay CS. The two ovals are adhered together using multipurpose liquid glue and then to the card front using stampin’ dimensionals.

Stampin Up! Leave a Little Sparkle handmade unicorn stamp using ombre method with embossing paste by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B CreationsDecorating the interior of the card:

Inside the card is a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Coastal Cabana CS followed by a 3-3/4″ x 5″ layer of Whisper White CS that I stamped onto.  Using more stamps from the Leave a Little Sparkle stamp set and my Stampin’ Write markers again, I stamped the sentiment and the swirls and stars. The stars are colored in using the dark Purple Posey stampin’ blend. I finished off the card by adding wink of stella to the word sparkle, the stars, swirls and the unicorn mane and tail.

Stampin’ Tip: By using the brush tip of the Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape stampin’ write markers, I was able to ink the stamp with multiple colors and create an ombre’ effect with the stamps.  This matched the ombre’ embossing paste on the card.

Daisy Lane Chalkboard Technique

Hi Stampers. I hope you had a fabulous 4th of July weekend. I’m happy to see you back!  Today I will be showing how to do the chalkboard technique, using the Daisy Lane stamp set bundle. This is a beautiful technique that I haven’t seen a lot of lately.  Stampin’ Up! recently released some amazing Shimmer White Stampin’ Emboss Powder – it sparkles!!

Stampin' Up! Daisy Lane Chalkboard Technique handmade friend card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B CreationsInstructions:

I started with a Coastal Cabana card base 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. To do the “chalkboard” technique, I used a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Basic Black CS (rubbed with the embossing buddy to avoid static).  I also have a 6″ x 3″ piece of Coastal Cabana CS (also rubbed with the embossing buddy) and a 2″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White CS.  Using Versamark ink, I stamped the large daisy twice on the 3″ x 6″ piece of Coastal Cabana.  Next, I used the new Shimmer White Stampin’ Emboss Powder to sprinkle over the top of the Versamark.  I then tapped off the excess and used my Heat Tool to melt the embossing powder. The small daisies are stamped in Coastal Cabana ink onto the Whisper White 2″ x 4″ strip of Whisper White. They are then punched out with their coordinating punches.

Stampin' Up! Daisy Lane Chalkboard Technique handmade friend card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Onto the Basic Black layer I stamped the Friend sentiment in the lower right corner and the smaller daisy twice on the left side of the layer (leaving room for the punched daisies to be placed between them.  Again, I used the Versamark ink, Shimmer White Embossing Powder and my heat tool on the daisies and sentiment. Next, using a ruler and my White Stampin’ Chalk Marker, I drew a line around the edge of the card, measuring in approximately 1/4″. I just love using my 12″ clear Tim Holtz design ruler to do this.

The two large daisies are adhered on top of each other using a glue dot (off setting the petals) and the two smaller daisies are adhered on top of each other using a glue dot (off setting the petals). Next, the two were layered onto of each other using mini glue dots.  They are then adhered between the two daisies on the Basic Black layer. The flower is finished off by adding a Clear Faceted Gem to the center. Using paper snips I trimmed off the daisy petals that where hanging over the edge of the Basic Black layer. (This is easy to do if you cut from the back side before adhering the layer to the card front). Using snail adhesive, the Basic Black layer is then adhered to the card front.

Decorating the interior of the card:

For the interior of the card, I used a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Whisper White CS. Using Coastal Cabana ink, I stamped the daisy in the upper right and lower left corner of the layer (letting the daisy hang off of the edge) and the sentiment in the center. The inside layer is adhered using snail adhesive.

Product Tip:

Do you use our Whisper White cardstock?  If you don’t, you should!  After all, the best projects start with the best products, right? Our Whisper White cardstock has an ultrasmooth surface making it ideal for stamping, so you get clean, crisp images. Once you try it, you won’t like using the lesser quality cardstock on your projects any more!
