To Have and To Hold

Hi Stampers. We are nearing the end of an awesome Annual Catalog and getting ready to launch a fabulous Annual Catalog!  It’s a fun time of year!  Today I’d like to share with you one of the sets from the retirement list.  This To Have & To Hold Clear Mount stamp set is a great one.  Alot of people often look for the phrase “Mr & Mrs” and this set has it!  Inventory is running low – so hop over to my store and buy it before they are gone!

Stampin' Up! To Have and To Hold Tufted Embossing Layering Ovals handmade wedding or anniversary card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card has a simple Balmy Blue card base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″.  Next is a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Whisper White CS that I have dry embossed using the Tufted Dynamic Embossing Folder.  Over that I adhered a Balmy Blue CS scalloped oval (cut using the Layering Ovals Dies) followed by a slightly smaller oval (also cut using those Layering Oval Dies).  Onto the Whisper White Layer I stamped the couple from the To Have & To Hold stamp set in Memento Black ink.

Stampin' Up! To Have and To Hold Tufted Embossing Layering Ovals handmade wedding or anniversary card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I stamped the flowers (also from the To Have & To Hold stamp set) onto a scrap of Whisper White and colored the flowers and the couple using my super awesome Stampin’ Blends! (Do you have these yet?  You want them!  You want them all!!)  I then fussy cut the flowers. The Balmy Blue scallop oval was adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the Whisper White oval onto that using snail adhesive. I adhered the flowers using a mix of snail adhesive and dimensionals.  I have a dimensional on each end where it connects directly to the card front and snail in the middle where it adheres to the oval (which is already raised).  The inside can be stamped with a wedding or anniversary sentiment.

Nautical Beach Wedding Card in a Box

Hi Stampers. I love making fancy cards. My customers prefer the simple, but every so often I just need to make something more.  That need to create more complex cards is what started my Etsy store. The most popular items in my Etsy store are my “card in a box” cards. I was recently asked to make a card in a box for a beach wedding.  I created the Tropical Beach Wedding card that was used in my Pals Blog Hop blog post last week.  You can see that post here.  Turns out, the beach is in Cape May, NJ – beautiful beach town, but not exactly tropical. So, I created this card.

Stampin' Up! Sailing Home & High Tide Nautical Beach Lighthouse Wedding Card in a box by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I’ve done card-in-a-box cards often.  You can find the video tutorial on this prior post. This card in a box starts with a Seaside Spray (a 2019-2021 in-color) card base, followed by Sahara Sand CS and then Whisper White CS. I stamped onto the Whisper White CS.

Stampin' Up! Sailing Home & High Tide Nautical Beach Lighthouse Wedding Card in a box by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I cut waves out of some scrap Seaside Spray CS and used some 2-way glue and dazzling diamond glitter on the tips of the waves and attached them to the cross members first. The sentiments are from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set and are stamped in Night of Navy ink.  The anchors are from the new Sailing Home stamp set and are stamped in Basic Gray.  The ropes are from the same set and are stamped in Crumb Cake ink.  The sailboats are also from the Sailing Home stamp set and are stamped in Seaside Spray and Night of Navy inks and are die cut with the coordinating dies.

Stampin' Up! Sailing Home bundleDo you like the new Sailing Away stamp set and Smooth Sailing dies?
They will be available for purchase when the new 2019-2020 annual Stampin’ Up! catalog goes live on June 4th.
You can save 10% by buying these together as a bundle.

I created the lighthouse to look like the actual lighthouse in Cape May.  It is red on top with white on the bottom. I used the lighthouse from the High Tide stamp set.  I stamped the first stamp (the one with the detail for the top) using Smoky Slate ink.  Then I used the second stamp (the solid part), I inked up just the top in Cherry Cobbler ink and stamped it onto the lighthouse. For the bottom, I stamped in Versamark ink and used White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and melted with the heat tool.

Stampin' Up! Sailing Home & High Tide Nautical Beach Lighthouse Wedding Card in a box by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The bride and groom hearts are cut out of Basic Black CS, Whisper White CS and Sparkle Glimmer Paper using the hearts from the Be Mine Dies. Using paper snips I cut the two sides off of the Whisper White heart and glued it onto the Basic Black heart to create the dress shirt. I used the Cookie Cuter Builder Punch to cut the bow tie from Basic Black CS and used a sponge dauber to put a little Whisper White ink to the edges of the bow tie to make it pop. I used my Take Your Pick tool to add pearl accents to the Sparkle Glimmer paper heart. These are attached to each other and to the front of the card box with mini glue dots.

Stampin' Up! Sailing Home & High Tide Nautical Beach Lighthouse Wedding Card in a box by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For around the bottom of the card-in-a-box I used the High Tide stamp set to create a beach scene. I used Sahara Sand ink for the sand, Seaside Spray ink for the water (stamped the lines and used sponge dauber over them), a stamping sponge wedge was used to sponge Seaside Spray ink for the sky. The sun is stamped in Mango Melody ink, the birds in Smoky Slate ink and the grass in the sand in Old Olive ink. On the back of the card, I stamped the lighthouse and the flying birds from the new Sailing Home stamp set in Basic Gray ink. This time the customer was thrilled.  I hope you are, too.  Let me know what you think in the comments below.

Bloomin’ Heart Wedding Card

Hi Stampers. We have a family wedding coming up, so I may have wedding on the brain lately. But, I’m coming up with some beautiful cards! Today’s card is no exception and (bonus) it uses a product from the clearance rack!  The Bloomin’ Heart die was $25 retail, but it on the clearance rack for $15.

Stampin' Up! Blooming Heart white wedding card with sparkle glimmer paper by Lisa Ann Bernardd of Queen B Creations

This card starts with a thick Whisper White card base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. Next is a beautiful layer of Sparkle Glimmer Paper that is 4″ x 5-1/4″. The top layer is 3-3/4″ x 5″.  I took this layer to the Big Shot and used the Bloomin’ Heart die to die cut this beautiful detailed heart.  After using the big shot die brush to knock out all the little cut outs, I was ready to adhere it to my card base.

I adhered the “frame” of this layer to the Sparkle Glimmer Paper using Tear & Tape Adhesive.  This adhesive because it is a little thicker that snail and sticks to the glimmer paper better.  Next, I put mini glue dots on the back side of the heart and inserted it back into the “frame” of this layer.  I put a basic rhinestone in the center of each flower. Across the bottom I adhered a piece of Silver Foil (3-1/4″ x 1-1/4″). I stamped the greeting from Better Together onto a piece of Whisper White CS (3″ x 1″) using Versamark ink (after using the embossing buddy).  I quickly sprinkled Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder over the ink, tapped off the excess and melted it with the heat tool. This was then adhered to the Silver Foil layer.

The inside of the card I stamped the flower from Better Together into the upper left and lower right corner using Versamark ink (after using the embossing buddy).  I quickly sprinkled Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder over the ink, tapped off the excess and melted it with the heat tool.

We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects with “More Than One Score.” 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! Beach Happy, High Tide, Beautiful Bouquet handmade Beach Wedding Card-in-a-box by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations for the Pals Blog Hop May 2019

For this hop, I decided to do a beach themed wedding card-in-a-box.  I’ve done card-in-a-box cards often.  You can find the video tutorial on this prior post. This card in a box starts with a Seaside Spray (a 2019-2021 in-color) card base, followed by sparkle Glimmer Paper and then Whisper White CS. I stamped onto the Whisper White CS.

I cut waves out of some scrap Seaside Spray CS and used some 2-way glue and dazzling diamond glitter on the tips of the waves and attached them to the cross members first.  Next I stamped the palm trees from the Beach Happy stamp set in Garden Green and Soft Suede inks.  I used my Brother Scan-n-Cut to cut them out.  I attached them to the waves using strips of acetate for stability.

Using the Big Shot and the Bouquet Bunch dies I cut the bouquets out of Whisper White and Garden Green CS.  They are attached to the cross members with mini glue dots.  The sentiments are from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set and are stamped in Pacific Point ink. I used the palm tree from the Beach Happy set to put palm leaves on the edges of these layers.

Custom Wedding Bookmarks

Hi Stampers. I would like to say Congratulations to my friend Ashley and her new husband Brian on their recent wedding. I’m sorry that I wasn’t able to be there in person – I saw pictures it was GORGEOUS!! But, I was sort of there in spirit, as she asked me to make these bookmarks for her guests.

Stampin' Up! Wedding Bookmark Seating Placecards by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations
These are the bookmarks she commissioned me to make for her wedding. She and Brian were thrilled with how they came out and that makes me very happy! Stampin' Up! Wedding Bookmark Seating Placecards by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations
Each guest received a bookmark with their name on it and the date of the wedding. The colors represented which meal they had chosen. This helped the serving staff deliver the correct meal to each guest.
Stampin' Up! Wedding Bookmark Seating Placecards by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations
Ashley chose these colors to coordinate with the fall colors of the wedding. The names were printed onto Smokey Slate CS with my computer and printer using a font that was similar to their wedding invitations. They were then mounted onto Basic Black, Merry Merlot or Basic Gray (based on meal choice).
Stampin' Up! Wedding Bookmark Seating Placecards by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations
A swirl was added to each one using the retired Stampin’ Up! set called Everything Eleanor. This swirl was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed using Copper stampin’ emboss powder.
Stampin' Up! Wedding Bookmark Seating Placecards by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations
The diecut leaf at the top of each bookmark was cut out of Copper foil paper using a die from the Seasonal Layers Thinlit dies. (After much trial and error with liquid glues, I settled on using the Adhesive Sheets. This did make them a little harder to cut through, but the precision base plate and a second run through the big shot made it work).
Stampin' Up! Wedding Bookmark Seating Placecards by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations
I finished them off by angling the ends and punching a heart hole and feeding 1/8″ silver ribbon through the hole to make a tassel. I will admit they didn’t want to stay put at first, but a simple glue dot solved my problem.

Stampin' Up! Save the Date wedding announcements made by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I was also blessed to be able to make their “save the date” wedding announcements.  The found a photo they wanted to use, so I printed that onto Whisper White CS and mounted it on Cherry Cobbler CS. The announcement itself was printed onto vellum. Two holes were punched in the top of all three layers and a ribbon was run through to attach the vellum and give it a finished look.

If you have an event coming up that could use a personal handmade touch, I’d love to help. I can either assist you in designing what you need and help you purchase the needed supplies or give you a quote on my making them for you.

Wonderful Moments Blackboard Heat Embossing Technique

Hi Stampers. I hope you are enjoying your weekend and experiencing some “Wonderful Moments”.  I’m happily stamping in my studio preparing for my heat embossing class this week.  We will be using three different heat embossing techniques in this class.  The card on today’s blog is the blackboard technique.  You heat emboss in white embossing powder on black card stock and it looks like a blackboard – hence the name. 🙂

Stampin' Up! Heat Emboxxing Card Class by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The three techniques we will do are the tarnished foil technique, the blackboard technique and the Josephs coat technique.  I will share the other two cards in upcoming posts.  Be sure to come back to see how those are done.

Stampin' Up! heat embossing blackboard technique handmade wedding card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card starts out with a Blushing Bride card base, 11″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″. Next up was a 4″ x 5 1/4″ layer of Basic Black CS. Before adhering this layer to the card, I rubbed it with the embossing buddy. I used Versamark ink to stamp the bride from the Wonderful Moments stamp set in the lower right corner. The flower from the Better Together stamp set was stamped in the upper left corner in Versamark ink. I then poured white stampin’ emboss powder over both, shook off excess and melting it with my heat tool. After that cooled a little, I used a ruler and a white marker to draw lines around the outer edge of the black layer (as seen in photo).

I adhered the Basic Black layer to my card base with snail adhesive and headed over to my Big Shot.  I die cut the wavy banner from the Bunch of Banners Framelit Dies out of Blushing Bride CS. The circles were cut using the Layering Circles Framelit Dies out of Whisper White and Blushing Bride CS.  The Layering Circle Framelit set is a great combination of circles and scalloped circles in a bunch of sizes that layer over one another beautifully. I stamped the “for the bride” sentiment from the Wonderful Moments stamp set in Blushing Bride ink onto the top Whisper White circle.  These pieces were layered onto the card front using snail adhesive and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the interior of the card, I used a 4″ x 5 1/4″ layer of Whisper White CS and stamped the sentiment and swirls from the Wonderful Moments stamp set in Blushing Bride ink.  This was adhered to the inside with snail adhesive.

I’m thrilled with how it came out and I hope you are too!  If you want to make one of these cards for yourself, I invite you to come to a local class or order my “class to go” option or order the supplies from my store to make your own.  What ever you decide to do, I hope it’s stress free!  Remember – “There’s NO STRESS in stamping”.
