Emboss In All Colors With Stamparatus

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team’s theme is “Fun Ways to Use Your Stampin’ Up! Products” where we show our favorite product tips. We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Stampin' Up! Shark Frenzy Fun Fold Interior Pop Up Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Did you ever wish you could heat emboss something in a color that you don’t have an embossing powder for? The Stampin’ Up! Stamparatus to the rescue!

Stampin' Up! Shark Frenzy Fun Fold Interior Pop Up Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Heat Embossing is a great way to add dimension and glossy raised texture to your stamped images. Normally you would stamp in Versamark (or any other embossing) ink and then sprinkle with embossing powder, tap off excess and melt with a heat tool.  The color of the embossing is usually based on the color powder you use.

I wanted my shark, from the Shark Frenzy stamp set, to be embossed in Basic Gray, but didn’t have Basic Gray embossing powder.  With the Stamparatus, I was able to stamp the outline in Memento Black and then ink the inside with Basic Gray ink with perfect alignment. The Stamparatus also allowed me to then stamp in Versamark right over the top of the Basic Gray ink, again with perfect alignment!

Then I sprinkled with clear embossing powder and heated with the heat tool.  Voila – Basic Gray embossing!

My card has a Coastal Cabana card base followed by a Layer of Basic White CS.  Using the Basic Borders Dies, I die cut the cloud edge and used that as a template to mask my layer. I then used my Blending Brushes to brush Balmy Blue as the sky.

Next, I die cut the edge of a 2-1/2″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Coastal Cabana and Pool Party using the wave from the Shark Dies.  For the sand, I used the slopped die from the Shark Dies and Sahara Sand CS. I also brushed a little Sahara Sand ink onto the edge with Blending Brushes.

Using the Shark Dies, I die cut the sharks, so I could tuck them into the waves. The seaweed is die cut from Old Olive and Pear Pizzaz CS and the fish from Pumpkin Pie CS using the Shark Dies.

Here is a close up showing the awesome sheen on my little sharks!

Inside the card is a pop up layer.  This was made by using a 5-1/4″ x 8″ layer of Pool Party CS and measuring in 1-1/2″ from either side and cutting 1-1/2″ above and 1-1/2″ below the score line and folding them out from the card base, while the center folds in normal.

I created a similar scene inside the card as I did outside, although inside the card are the smaller sharks.

Overall, I’m thrilled with how it came out.  What do you think?  Will you be giving this technique a try?  What color will you be embossing in?

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created!

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Batter Up

Hi Stampers. I’m back with ANOTHER Batter Up!, Paper Pumpkin alternative card.  (You can see my other one HERE.)  Today’s card is for the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop.

Stampin' Up! Batter Up Paper Pumpkin alternative NY Yankee Jersey by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

When I first saw the card base with the navy pinstripes in the kit, I knew it was a New York Yankees jersey.

Stampin' Up! Batter Up Paper Pumpkin alternative NY Yankee Jersey by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

So, for today’s card, I used a thick Basic White card base and added a layer of Night of Navy CS to build my card on.

Stampin' Up! Batter Up Paper Pumpkin alternative NY Yankee Jersey by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Using my trimmer, I trimmed off a piece of the striped card base for the shirt and a 3/4″ strip to make the sleeves from. A layering circle die made the half circle at the top of the shirt.  The baseball and bat are from the Batter Up! kit, too.

Stampin' Up! Batter Up Paper Pumpkin alternative NY Yankee Jersey by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Once I had the jersey made, I knew it needed a number.  But, I don’t anything about the Yankees, other than the look of their uniform (lol).  Google to the rescue and I came up with #3 for Babe Ruth.  I cut the number using the Playful Alphabet Dies and the hat using the Hat Builder Dies.

Stampin' Up! Batter Up Paper Pumpkin alternative NY Yankee Jersey by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Inside the card I stamped the sentiment (from the kit) in Night of Navy ink (from the kit). Using Soft Suede ink, I stamped a single bat in the lower right corner and promptly got an ink smudge right above it. Hence, the second bat coming in from the right – problem solved! LOL  Enjoy!

Batter Up Blog Hop

Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop

Hi Stampers. Today I’m hopping with the Crafty Collaborations group to show alternate uses for the Batter Up! Paper Pumpkin kit.  If you saw my post using the Hats Off bundle a few weeks ago (see that HERE), that you know our family is BIG into baseball!  So, I was really looking forward to playing with this one!

Stampin' Up! Batter Up Alternative Easel Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This is my card.  I used their card base as a regular layer on my Night of Navy card base.

Stampin' Up! Batter Up Alternative Easel Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I made my Batter Up card an easel card! I love how it came out! The Night of Navy card base is 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5-1/2″ and 2-3/4″.

Stampin' Up! Batter Up Alternative Easel Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Then I added a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ layer over that. (Note: it’s only adhered on the bottom, so it allows the top to pop up.

It folds flat for mailing and stands up for display.

I used the baseball card from the kit and backed it on a layer of Real Red CS.

The baseball card layer is adhered to the front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Batter Up Alternative Easel Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Inside the card is a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer made from the other half of the paper pumpkin card base from the kit. Using Real Red ink, I stamped the sentiment with the stamps from the Batter Up! kit. I added “grandpa” in Night of Navy ink.

Hey Girlfriend, it’s a 2021-2023 In-Color Blog Hop

Hey Girlfriend, welcome to a Crafty Challenge Blog Hop! Our challenge this month is the 2021-2023 In Colors! The new in-colors are beautiful and work well together.

2021-2023 Stampin' Up! In Colors - shop with Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Earlier this month, I participated in the Stampin’ Pretty Pals blog hop and did one card in each of the five colors, using the new Color & Contour bundle. You can see them HERE.

Stampin' Up! Hey Girlfriend Give It a Whirl handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I chose to use Positively Pink as my card base – it’s goes beautifully with the Hey Girlfriend stamp set. Have you seen the new Give It a Whirl Dies? They are on page 163 in the catalog and can be easily over looked.

Stampin' Up! Hey Girlfriend Give It a Whirl handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Using those Give It A Whirl Dies, I die cut a layer of Basic White CS for my card front.  At the same time, I die cut the opening for the words to show.  The girls and dog were stamped in Memento Black ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends.

Stampin' Up! Hey Girlfriend Give It a Whirl handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The dies have a scallop circle that fits perfectly behind the front panel.  Using Positively Pink ink, I stamped the three sentiments from the Hey Girlfriend set onto the circle. They are adhered together with a brad and attached to the card front with stampin’ dimensionals, giving it room to spin.

Stampin' Up! Hey Girlfriend Give It a Whirl handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Inside the Hey Girlfriend card is another layer of Basic White CS.  The balloons and cat were stamped in Memento Black and colored with Stampin’ Blends.  The sentiment is stamped in the middle in Positively Pink ink. Remember, this is a hop, so don’t stop here – leave a comment and then pop on over to the next blog using the list below.

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities So Cool

Hi Stampers.  Welcome to our Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop.  We are sharing alternate ideas for the monthly Paper Pumpkin kit. This months kit is – SO COOL!!!  Make sure you go to the bottom and click the next button to continue on to many more fabulous ideas!  If you ever get lost, there is a blog hop line up list provided for you, too.

Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin April 2021 So Cool Alternative fun fold card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This kit came with some adorable shaped cards, I chose to add a fun fold card base to mine. I have a 11″ x 4-1/4″ Old Olive card base scored at 5-1/2″.

Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin April 2021 So Cool Alternative fun fold card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

On the card front I used a similar card base, upside down.  The Poppy Parade layer is 4″ x 10-1/2″, scored at 5-1/4″ and 2-5/8″.  You can see in the photo, how they go together.

Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin April 2021 So Cool Alternative fun fold card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

On the back layer of my card front is the large watermelon card front. (It was a watermelon shaped card in the So Cool kit, I just cut off the front.) The sun was a sticker from the So Cool kit.

Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin April 2021 So Cool Alternative fun fold card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Using the Stitched Rectangle Dies, I die cut a layer of Basic White CS. Onto that layer I stamped the dots and sentiment onto it in Bermuda Bay ink. The watermelon was stamped in Memento Black ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends.

Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin April 2021 So Cool Alternative fun fold card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Inside the card is a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Basic White CS. On this layer I used the watermelon sticker in the lower right and the sun in the upper right, I snipped off excess with the paper snips before adhering the inside layer.  The “happy birthday” sentiment (also from the kit) is stamped in the center in Bermuda Bay ink.
