How To Use Masking Paper

Hi, Stamper. I don’t know about you but as much as I love autumn, I’m just not quite ready yet. We just started summer!  But, the July to December Mini Catalog goes live next Friday. For today’s post, I used the Hello Harvest stamp set to make an autumn card as expected, but then I used the same set to make a summer / spring card in Pink – it came out great!

Here is my first card. The base is done in Soft Sea Foam and then I used the backside of the new Rustic Harvest DSP and colored the leaves (which were white) with my Stampin’ Blends.

Next, I stamped the ribbon banner, from the Hello Harvest stamp set in Memento Black ink. Using the masking paper, I covered up the ribbon banner and stamped the flowers over that and then removed the masking paper. Then I colored the banner and flowers with the Stampin’ Blends. I used the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint (and heated it with the heat tool) to make the cotton.

Inside the card, I stamped the leaf in the lower right and upper left corner in Cajun Craze, Soft Sea Foam & Crumb Cake. The sentiment is stamped it the center in Crumb Cake ink. Did you notice the corners?  That’s a new punch in the July to December Mini Catalog.

For the Blushing Bride version. I used the Blending Brushed to color the black and white side of the Rustic Harvest DSP in Blushing Bride ink.

The ribbon and flowers were stamped in the same way, but just colored with different colors of Stampin’ Blends to give it a more spring / summer feel. I did cheat a use a few retired Stampin’ Blend colors.  I still have them and they haven’t dried out, so why not, right?

Inside the card, I used Blushing Bride ink to stamp the little filagree stamp in each corner and the “hello” sentiment in the center. More description and all the measurements are in the video below.

Emboss Resist Technique

Hi, welcome back to my blog. Today I am sharing the card I made on my LIVE last Monday. It is an emboss resist technique using the Waves of Inspiration bundle.

Stampin' Up! Waves of Inspiration emboss resist technique card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

My emboss resist card starts out with a Starry Sky card base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″.  Next, I stamped the large wave onto a layer of Basic White CS 4″ x 5-1/4″ in Versamark ink and sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heated it with the heat tool. Using the Blending Brushes, I brushed Mango Melody and Daffodil Delight inks in the center, for the sun. Pool Party and Coastal Cabana inks were blended onto the wave and just above it.

I sponged the sky using Orchid Oasis, Starry Sky and some Night of Navy inks. Using a white gel pen, I made small dots in the sky, then added a few small Basic Rhinestone Jewels as stars. This layer was then adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Seal. Stampin’ Write markers were used to ink up the pelican, that was then stamped onto a scrap of Basic White CS and die cut using the Waves Dies. Stampin’ Blends were used to color it and then it was adhered to the card front using mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Inside the card I created a scene using the Oceanfront stamp set for the sand and water. Then the pelican was stamped and colored with Stampin’ Blends, again. The sky is blending using the same blues and Blending Brushes. White embossing powder was again used for the inside sentiment. You can see how to do all of this by watching the video below.

Beachy Shaker Card

Hi, Stamper. You are going to be so surprised how easy this shaker card is!

Stampin' Up! Waves of Inspiration Shaker Card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The window frame for my shaker card was made using the Stitched Rectangle Dies, I chose two sizes and cut them at the same time, out of Heart & Home DSP using the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.  I adhered a window sheet to the back of this frame (cut to size) and then added Foam Adhesive Strips to the back of the frame. This created the well, that I poured the glitter into.

I then stamped my scene, for my shaker card, onto a layer of Basic White and adhered that to the back of the frame. This was then adhered to a Coastal Cabana card base. The pelican, from the Waves of Inspiration stamp set, was inked with the Stampin’ Write Markers and stamped onto a scrap of Basic White CS. To die cut this out, I used the Waves Dies, while the fence was die cut from Crumb Cake CS using the Horizon Dies.

Inside the shaker card I created a scene on a layer of Basic White CS that is matted in Pool Party CS. I got the calm water by stamping the wave upside down. The pelican was again inked with Stampin’ Write Markers, but this time I colored it with Stampin’ Blends. Pool Party ink was used for the sentiment, while Smoky Slate ink was used for the birds.

Baseball Birthday Starburst Card

Hi, Stamper. Welcome back to my blog. I’m so glad you are here!  Today’s card is a Starburst card that I made during my LIVE on Monday.  The YouTube video is linked below.

Stampin' Up! Starburst Card Hey Sports Fan DSP by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

My card starts with a Night of Navy card base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. The next layer is a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Real Red CS. I created my starbust on a 3-3/4″ x 5″ layer of Basic White CS.

Stampin' Up! Starburst Card Hey Sports Fan DSP by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This starburst was created using strips of the Hey Sports Fan DSP. I cut the strips into 1-1/2″ x 7″ for this card and then cut them diagonally.  The first strip was the one that went from upper right to lower left, I then laid down the ones adjacent, working my way o the outer edges.  After they were all down, I turned it over and cut off the excess from the backside. I put the adhesive on the Basic White layer (when I had the adhesive on the strips, there was glue on the part hanging over). Using Stampin’ Seal, I adhered this layer to the card front and then added my decorations with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin’ Tip:  I have made future ones using 1-1/4″ x 6″ strips and that worked better.  Especially because some of our paper is 6″ x 6″ and it’s half of our 12″ x 12″ – less waste.

Inside the starburst card is a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Very Vanilla CS. I adhered the strip of tickets to the left side of that layer and did the stamping in Real Red ink.

Offset Triple Layer Technique

Happy Sunday! This week I have been sharing the Charming Sentiments bundle, but today I have a bonus card for you. I made an offset triple layer technique card using the Nature’s Harvest stamp set.  Note: The cardstock colors are retired, but it can easily be done in other colors.

Stampin' Up! Natures Harvest offset triple layer technique by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

My offset triple layer card starts with a Bumblebee card base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. The Hive Embossing Folder was used to dry emboss the front layer of the card base. Next, I cut my Very Vanilla CS layers – 5″ x 1-3/4″, 3-3/34″ x 2-1/2″ and 2″ x 2″. I arranged these and adhered them together with TEMPORARY adhesive. The flowers were then stamped in Memento Black ink and colored with the Stampin’ Blends. Cajun Craze ink was used for the sentiment.

Stampin’ Tip: The splatter was make using a Stampin Write marker. I used the brush tip end and flicked it against the inside of the cap, towards the card.

Then I cut the Cinnamon Cider CS – 5-1/4″ x 2″, 4″ x 2-3/4″ and 2-1/4″ x 2-1/4″. I pulled the 3 Very Vanilla pieces apart and adhered the appropriate Cinnamon Cider matte behind each of and adhered them together. Finally, I adhered them to the card front with Stampin’ Seal. This makes the triple offset layer technique. Isn’t it fun?!?

Inside the card is a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Very Vanilla CS.  Using Cajun Craze ink and the Nature’s Harvest stamp set, I stamped a little something in the lower left and upper right corner.

Charming Sentiments Encouragement Card

Crafting is an escape quote

The news as of late has made is hard to go about as if life is “normal”. I wanted to make an encouragement card for us all. So I dug into my Charming Sentiments bundle and pulled out these sentiments with the wish of bringing some hope – Faith over Fear.

Stampin' Up! Charming Sentiments Oceanfront encouragement card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Today’s encouragement card starts with a Basic Gray card base followed by a layer of watercolor paper. I stamped onto the watercolor paper using the Oceanfront stamp set. Using a water painter, I brushed over the background stamping, then I stamped the plants and birds.

Stampin' Up! Charming Sentiments Oceanfront encouragement card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The sentiment, from Charming Sentiments is stamped onto watercolor paper and die cut with the coordinating Sentiment Silhouettes. This was then adhered to the card front using stampin’ dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Charming Sentiments Oceanfront encouragement card by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Inside the card is a 4″ x 5-1/4″ Basic White layer. Several cards back, I made a template using the Basic Borders die and some of the DSP backing paper. I used this template and the blending brushes with Balmy Blue ink to make a sky and added a few birds. (the bird I used was from the Waves of Inspiration stamp set, but any birds will do and it’s also easy to draw this type with a Basic Black pen). More sand, rocks and plants from the Oceanfront stamp set were stamped across the bottom. Finally, the sentiment (from Charming Sentiments) was stamped in the center in Memento Black ink.
