StampinByHannah 12 Days of Giftaways (Day 3) Crafting Forever

Stampin' Up! UK Independent Demonstrator StampinByHannah Thoughtful Thursday

This week’s Thoughtful Thursday is somewhat of a reminder to myself; Do Something Creative Everyday. I started crafting as an escape and a chance for some ‘me time’. I have discussed before about my anxiety, and recently my mental health hasn’t been the best… but my crafting has continued, my blogging has continued, and a continue to LOVE what I do! But sometimes I need a little reminder…

This is a cute little 3-1/2 x 3-1/2″ card, made from a piece of Night of Navy card stock cut to 7 x 3-1/2″ and scored on the long side at 3-1/2″. The pens are taken from the Crafting Forever Stamp Set, and after I stamped them in Night of Navy ink I used an Aqua-Painter to pull out some of the colour to colour the pens.

I am currently LOVING Berry Burst in every colour combination, but Berry with Navy is super pretty. So, the sentiment is stamped in Berry Burst on Watercolour Paper and I spritzed it with a little water to activate and move the ink to create this fun watercolour effect. I tried a few different combinations of circle framelits and punches for the boarder around the sentiment, but they were all too thick. So, I used a trick that is always handy to know, but I don’t used often… I ran the circular piece through the Night of Navy ink pad to give the edges a hint of Night of Navy!

The card is finished with a spritz of Berry Burst ink to tie it all together

We have reached Day 3 of my 12 Days of Giftaways today…I LOVE being able to give you something special when you shop… and I have some special things coming in the new year! So, as my Christmas gift to you I have a special gift for each person who shops over £45 for the next 12 days. Each day has a different gift, and you don’t need to worry about adding the Code Club Code (although please do to receive your December Card Kit!).

Stampin' Up! UK Gift Vouchers

I don’t know about you, but I have started to give the gift of shopping more and more in recent years. One because I just don’t have the time to source and buy everyone a special gift, but also because I would much rather someone had something that they LOVE than something I think that they might like, but then ultimately spends years sat at the back of a drawer!

I’m sure that you LOVE to shop for your crafty and creative friends…. or maybe you have been directed here by your card making loved one…. but how to do you know what they need, or what they already own? This is where Stampin’ Up! Gift Cards brought to you by StampinByHannah is a great idea!

So, how to StampinByHannah Gift Cards work?

Its simple, just complete the form at the bottom of this post. I will the contact you to collect payment (I use PayPal for this). I will also pop a handmade card and voucher into the post for you, so you have something to actually gift.

Then, the gift card is spent by emailing me directly to place your order.

Box Tutorial – Create a bracelet box!

Hey guys and gals, I have a great project for you today!

A couple of weeks ago, a colleague bought me a bracelet back from holiday, and I came in a beautiful long thin box. It’s so simple and elegant, so I thought I would re-create it for you using Stampin’ Up! products


Stampin Up UK Bracelet Box tutorial

This box is a little different from our usual boxes here at StampinByHannah, as it has a separate lid, but it is so easy to make. I used Whisper White for the sample, but the one made in the video is Rich Razzleberry (I love this colour so much! it may be my favourite!)

The measurements for this project are:

IMPERIAL
For the bottom of the box

Cardstock = 3 1/4″ x 10 1/4″

Score at 1″ on all four sides

For the Top of the box

Cardstock = 2 7/8″ x 9 7/8″

Score at 3/4″ on all four sides

 

METRIC

For the bottom of the box

Cardstock = 8cm x 26cm

Score at 2.5cm on all four sides

For the top of the box

Cardstock = 7cm x 25cm

Score at 2cm on all four sides

 

See super simple, right! The box is then free to be decorated as you wish, I kept it simple with 3 punched flowers, using the Petite Petals Punch (no stamping here today!) and 3 medium sized jems from the basic jewel rhinestones pack.

And there you have it. A simple box for gifting jewellery, chocolates, or other small presents
