Welcome Baby

Hi Stampers. Last week, I stated that I couldn’t get enough of this circle technique. (See the “Thanks Friend” card HERE).  Here is yet another one :-).  This one is a baby shower or congratulations card that says “Welcome Baby”. I passed the point in my life where I need these type of cards for my friends having babies, now it’s for my friends having grandchildren. When did I get this old?

The Welcome Baby card base is done in Balmy Blue CS.  It’s followed by a 3-3/4″ x 5″ layer of Basic White and a 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″ layer of Peony Garden DSP.

The circle are all cut with the Stitched Shapes circle dies using Basic White, Blushing Bride, Pear Pizazz, Mint Macaron and Bumblebee CS. Over the top of the circles, along the seam, it says “Welcome Baby”. Using the Well Written Dies, I cut the “welcome” out of Balmy Blue CS (with adhesive sheet).  The word “baby”, from the Well Said stamp set, is stamped in Balmy Blue ink.

Inside the card is a 3-3/4″ x 5″ layer of Basic White CS with a 1/2″ strip of the Peony Garden DSP adhered on the left side.  The inside sentiment, also from the Well Said stamp set, is stamped in the center in Balmy Blue ink. Having a baby is truly a new adventure!

Sesame Street Cards

Hi Stampers. Today’s cards are a bit of a flashback Friday for me. These cards are made to look like Sesame Street Characters. My kids were 1 and 5 the year Tickle Me Elmo came out. I remember that Christmas they where THE toy to have and couldn’t be found in any stores, so they were selling them online for outrageous prices!!  That was 1996.  My kids are 25 & 29 now…  Sesame Street is long gone from our lives, but I still have very fond memories from my childhood and theirs.

Another demo made cards like these quite some time ago, when Stampin’ Up! sold a special die that cut the half circle and scored the card base to make this circle flip.  I never bought the die, because I found out how to make a flip card with any open die we have!  I show you how in the video below.

Stampin Up circle swing card cookie monster card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The way these cards came into my mind was the Nothin’s Better Than Stamp bundle.  It had these cute cookies in the bundle. Having cookie stamps means we needed a Cookie Monster card, right?!?!

Stampin Up circle swing card cookie monster card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The Layering Circles Dies were perfect for cutting out the eyes and mouth, using Basic Black and Whisper White CS.

Stampin Up circle swing card cookie monster card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Cookie Monster is made in Pacific Point CS and the fur was made using the Old World Paper Embossing Folder.

Stampin’ Tip: When there is die cutting and dry embossing on the same layer, do the die cutting first.  If you did it after the dry embossing it could flatten out the embossing.

Elmo was done very similarly, using Real Red CS.

Stampin Up circle swing card elmo card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I added the Layering Oval Dies and some Pumpkin Pie CS to make his nose.

Stampin Up circle swing card elmo card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I corner rounded the corners on the right side to soften it up a bit and also make it more like a puppet.

Do you remember this guy?  Good ol’ Oscar the Grouch!  He is done in Granny Apple Green CS.

Stampin Up circle swing card oscar the grouch card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

While much of the way he is made stays the same, I did add Soft Suede CS for his eyebrows, which were also dry embossed.

A half a circle of Real Red CS makes up his tongue.  What do you think?  Which one is your favorite?  Want to make one – watch this video below for all the details!

Sparkle Unicorn Side Easel Card

Hi Stampers. I’m getting there… I’m catching up on my video editing. Every Monday at 2:30MT, I do a Facebook Live on my Business Facebook page. I then download the video, edit it and put it on YouTube.  Last summer my video editing software stopped working and I had to find a new one. Well, I finally did and it’s better than the old one!

Stampin' Up! Leave A Little Sparkle Unicorn Easel Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I made this side easel card last summer using the Leave A Little Sparkle stamp set.  I just love that unicorn and the rainbow mane that I colored with the Stampin’ Blends.

Stampin' Up! Leave A Little Sparkle Unicorn Easel Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card is made using Balmy Blue, Highland Heather and Whisper White CS.  It will fold flat for mailing and fit in a standard A2 envelope and then it will prop open for display.

Stampin' Up! Leave A Little Sparkle Unicorn Easel Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I outlined the body of the unicorn using the light Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blend and then went over it again withe the Color Lifter.

Stampin' Up! Leave A Little Sparkle Unicorn Easel Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For the sentiment on the inside of the card, I used my Stampin’ Write Markers to ink up the stamp.  Using the markers allowed me to make the sentiment a rainbow of colors.

Stampin' Up! Leave A Little Sparkle Unicorn Easel Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

On the inside of the card, I placed a small star adhered with a mini Stampin’ Dimensional.  This will act as a “stop” to keep the card propped open.  Anyone who loves unicorns would love this stamp set!  You can purchase this set or any of the other supplies in my online store – see links below.  If you would like more directions and the measurements used in the making of this card – watch my video below.

Wildly Happy Sweetest Baby

Hi Stampers. A while back someone asked me about the subtle 3D embossing folder and how to use it. Today I’m showing you one idea for this embossing folder.

stampin up stamping your way to the top new team member card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card is made using the Wildy Happy stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  It is a set of 9 cling mount stamps.  (Cling mount stamps are red rubber stamps with a sticky back that mount on clear blocks.)

stampin up wildly happy sweetest baby card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card is monochromatic – meaning various shades of the same color – in this case gray.  This card uses Basic Gray, Smokey Slate and Whisper White CS and Basic Gray ink.

stampin up wildly happy sweetest baby card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I used two sets of layering dies – the ovals and the squares.  I love how the square frames the Mommy elephant and her baby.

stampin up wildly happy sweetest baby card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Before I dry embossed the Smoky Slate CS – I used my Basic Gray ink to apply ink all over one side the Subtle Embossing Folder.  As it went through the embossing machine it not only embossed, but it transfered the ink into the CS making the embossing more defined. Such a cool effect!

Magical Mermaid Shaker Card

Hi Stampers. As summer nears an end, I’m playing with the Magical Mermaid stamp set and the recently retired Seaside textured impressions embossing folder (although the new High Seas embossing folder would look even better!).  I used the layering circles dies and some foam strips to make this a shaker card.

Stampin' Up! Magical Mermaid shaker card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Today’s card starts with a Bermuda Bay 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.

Stampin' Up! Magical Mermaid shaker card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Using the Layering Circles Dies, I die cut a circle in the right center of a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Pool Party CS and the dry embossed it using the Seaside embossing folder. (The folder is retired, but I think this card could look even better using the new High Seas embossing folder.)

Stampin' Up! Magical Mermaid shaker card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For the sentiment, I stamped onto a 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ piece of Coastal Cabana CS using Versamark ink.  I used the new shimmer white stampin’ emboss powder and heat tool to heat emboss it.  On the sides and bottom of this layer I stamped the seaweed in Bermuda Bay ink. To cover the hole in the center of the top layer (from the backside) I used the clear acetate that comes on the photopolymer stamps. Next, I surrounded the circle (from the backside) with foam strips, added the buttons and placed the Coastal Cabana layer over that.  (The buttons have retired, but this would look great with the iridescent sequins, too. I was just trying to use up some retired product – which I also recommend.)

Stampin' Up! Magical Mermaid shaker card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

To the backside of the top layer, I added more foam strips around the edges and then applied it to the card base. Note: be sure to use the foam strips and not dimensionals because they are not the same height. The mermaid was then attached to the front of the card using multipurpose liquid glue.

Stampin' Up! Magical Mermaid shaker card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The interior of the card is lined with a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Whisper White CS.  I stamped the sentiment and the seaweed onto this layer using Bermuda Bay ink. This layer was stamped before adhering to the interior of the card in case there was a mis- stamp, then I could use the other side. 😉

Bokeh Magical Mermaid

Hi Stampers. Today I’m dreaming about the next cruise to the Caribbean my husband and I will go on.  I am not sure when it’s going to be, but I’m feeling the pull.  I want to go to the land of clear waters and make like a magical mermaid!

Stampin' Up! Magical Mermaid Bokeh Dots Stampin' Blends handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This card stars with a basic card base, 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″, in Bermuda Bay CS.  The next layer is a 5-1/4″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White CS.  Onto that layer, I stamped the center square using the Bokeh Dots stamp set. Over that I stamped the mermaid from the Magical Mermaid stamp set in Memento Black ink. I then colored the mermaid by using my (FABULOUS) Stampin’ Blends.  (If you have not purchased some of these yet, you are truly missing out!! They have become my favorite form of coloring!).

Stampin' Up! Magical Mermaid Bokeh Dots Stampin' Blends handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I colored the mermaids skin with the Ivory Stampin’ Blend, her hair with the Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends duo and the hair ribbon with the light Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blend. For the tail, I colored it using the Bermuda Bay and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends duos. For the exterior sentiment, I stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White CS in Bermuda Bay ink and cut it out using the Layering Circles Dies. Using the snail adhesive I adhered the Whisper White circle to a scalloped circle of Bermuda Bay CS cut using the same dies. The two circles were then adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Magical Mermaid Bokeh Dots Stampin' Blends handmade card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The inside of this Magical Mermaid card is lined with another 5-1/4″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White CS.  Before adhering it, I stamped the sentiment in Bermuda Bay ink and the seaweed (hanging off the edges) in Old Olive ink. It’s then adhered to the inside of the card using Snail Adhesive. While this card came as a result of my wishing for vacation, it would make a great card to send to anyone who loves magical mermaids. You can create your own using the supplies listed below (with links to my online store).

Round one of my paper share was a success.  I’ve had a few more requests to do another one.  If you would like a 6″ x 6″ pieces of every DSP listed in the new 2019-2020 Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalog, check out the information on my paper share HERE.
