Free as a Bird Friendship Card

Hey folks! Today’s card is one that I made for my lovely team leader a few weeks ago when I cashed in some reward vouchers. I love to send a little hand made something with my vouchers, and at the time I had the Bird Ballard suite out on my desk as I was designing the projects for last months Crafty Selection Box. So I made this pretty friendship themed card to send with my vouchers.

Free as a Bird Friendship card using Bird Ballard Designer Series paper from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

I love this bird stamp. Here I’ve stamped it onto one of the large Stitched Nested Labels die cuts, and actually I’ve left some of the stamp off! I do love this look, with the branch appearing from the edge of the piece. The birds are subtle-y coloured with Blends. I’m not the greatest Blend’s colour-er and I tend to go for hints of colour rather than a completely coloured image (although I did do that HERE!)

This card isn’t in your face, it’s subtle, elegant and very girly! I think that’s the Designer Series Paper, this piece in particular is so pretty and delicate.

The card is finished with a stitched circle in Petal Pink stamped with the Friendship sentiment and that lovely antique effect Bird Ballard Trinket

Christmas in July | Sparkly Dashing Deer Card

Christmas in July cardmaking ideas with StampinByHannah

Hey folks! One last Christmas card from me today (well, until September when the new Christmas Catalogue launches anyway!), and I’ve been playing with Dashing Deer again!

Sparkly Christmas Card using Dashing Deer from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

This card is all about the layers, with an embossed panel, Stitched nested Labels and that super sparkly Dashing Deer!

How to make a Sparkly Christmas card using Dashing Deer from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

The deer was die cut from Crumb Cake card stock, and then painted with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint to create this fun sparkly Dashing Deer. This paint dries super quickly; it was dry by the time I’d adhered the rest of the layers together!

Remembering You card using Dashing Deer from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

I hope you’ve enjoyed this week of Christmas cards in the middle of July! and maybe inspired you to make a start on this years cards early

Christmas in July | Merry Christmas with First Frost

Christmas In July with StampinByHannah Card making ideas

Hey folks! So, after a couple of blog posts of other bits and pieces, I’m back with another Christmas in July card! I LOVE the First Frost stamp set, and although it’s in with the Christmas stamps in the catalogue I totally use it all year around. Today I do have a Christmas Card using it, but how pretty would this be for a Birthday, or Just Because?

Merry Christmas with First Frost from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

I always prefer less traditional colours at Christmas. I mean, I don’t mind Red and Green, but I’m always pulled more towards cooler colours; blues and silver. So, the colours here are Coastal Cabana, Pretty Peacock, Granny Apply Green and Flirty Flamingo.

How to make a non traditional Christmas card using First Frost from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

The sentiment is taken from another Stamp set; Merry Christmas to All and the coordinating Merry Christmas Dies.

Merry Christmas with First Frost from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

The Merry is die cut from Silver Foil Paper, and then the stamp is in Pretty Peacock.

Pretty Peacock is one of this years Brand New In Colours, and I am in LOVE with it! I’ve re-opened sign ups for my 2019-2021 In Colour Club, but will close it again on Sunday night, CLICK HERE to find out more and join in!

Inspire.Create.Challenge #047 | Thinking of you with Beautiful Day

Hey folks! Wow, there was a day last week when I wasn’t sure I was going to get this card up for you today! However, my blog issues are hopefully behind me now (at least for a while) and I can concentrate back on making fun projects for you all!

This weeks Inspire.Create.Challenge is a sketch! Now, I’m not going to shared the sketch here, but you can see it over on the Inspire.Create blog and see everyone else’s fabulous creations too!

Thinking of you with Blends and Beautiful Day from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

The sketch features a large circle, which I have of course substituted for this gorgeous flower from Beautiful Day. I mean, when can I leave a sketch as it is, have to change it some how!

Here I’ve stamped the flower in Memento and then coloured it using Stampin’ Blends in Blackberry Bliss and Granny Apple Green. I’m trying really hard at the moment to use my Stampin’ Blends a little more. In fact, I’ve forced myself to as there is some Blends work in this months Retreat in a Box too!

Beautiful Day coloured with Stampin' Blends from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

I’ve kept the colouring pretty simple, although I have used both Light and Dark Blackberry Bliss pens to create this dimensional image.

The Blends were also put to work on the embellishments of this card, as I used Dark Blackberry Bliss to colour a trio of Clear Expoxy Drops too!

Facebook Live | Good Morning Magnolia Thank You Card

Hey folks! I am super excited to be back doing some Facebook Lives! I asked on Facebook a few weeks ago about whether you’d prefer to see regular videos on YouTube or random Facebook Lives, and most people seemed to want more Lives. So, I got a bit of time this morning while James took Niamh for her first set of vaccinations (which I really didn’t want to go to!), and thought I’d jump on and share this pretty Good Morning Magnolia Thank You card with you.

I’m not going to say too much about how this card came together, as you can see that on the Facebook Live video.

But I did want to link to some information about the offers I mentioned in the video

Bonus Days and Extra Extra are the two offers this month from Stampin’ Up!

My July Retreat in a Box and Crafternoon for MIND books close on Sunday, as well as my In Colour Club! But this month’s Code Club is open until the 28th July.

Christmas in July | Merry Christmas to All

Hey folks! So it’s day 2 of this years Christmas in July and the card I’m sharing today is one of my favourite makes in AGES and it uses the Merry Christmas to all stamp set!

Seasons Greetings hand stamped Christmas card using Merry Christmas to all from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

There are only 2 stamps at work here; the sentiment and that pretty label stamp. The background was created by just repeat stamping the sentiment over and over down the card in Gray Granite ink. You could totally use your Stamparatus for this, but I’ve hand stamped it. Hand stamping repeatedly like this isn’t difficult, but it can take some time, particularly if your trying to make it all perfect. I wasn’t aiming for perfection however, as I prefer the slightly mess, bit wonky, imperfect look!

How to create a fun handstamped Christmas card using Merry Christmas to all from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

The sentiment itself is stamped on a scrap of Very Vanilla card stock in Memento Black ink, and then the label stamp added in Cherry Cobbler. This stamp set pairs with the Merry Christmas dies, and this label has a perfectly matching die.

To help make the sentiment really pop I’ve added a couple of layers behind it; a vellum Stitched Nested Label and a piece of the Very Vanilla Lace Trim.

Christmas in July | Fun with Dashing Deer

Christmas in July with StampinByHannah

Hey folks! I cannot believe that it’s July already, this year is going so fast that I can already see Christmas around the corner, so I thought I would dedicate (most of) a week to Christmas! I mean, it’s never to early to start on this years home made Christmas cards right?

The Christmas stamp sets are kind of hidden in this years Annual catalogue, but you can find them on pages 68-71. Which doesn’t seem like very much, but these 5 stamp sets pack a punch! That, and the Christmas catalogue is just around the corner. It launches in August for Demonstrators, and September for customers. So, if you want a sneaky peak, please do consider joining Stampin’ Up! with me, particularly this month when we’ve got the fabulous Extra Extra promotion going on too!

Christmas in July with Dashing Deer from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

The Dashing Deer stamp set has been in the catalogue for a little bit now, and I still love it. I mean, what is not to love about that deer stamp… and the fact that it has a coordinating die too!

I’ve tried to use some non-festive items on this weeks cards, so this card also uses the Country Floral 3D embossing folder too. It adds an awesome dimension to that circle piece without being too in your face.

How to make a fun hand stamped Christmas card using Dashing Deer from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

This card has a bit of a twist on the traditional red and green Christmas. I’ve used Shaded Spruce, which I always think is very festive, but paired it with Lovely Lipstick, which is more of a pink that a red really. I think it works really rather well!

Happiest Christmas Wishes Card using Dashing Deer from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

This card is finished with the sentiment heat embossed in silver. Keeping things fairly simply for the first day of Christmas in July! Check back tomorrow for another festive card creation!

July Club News…

Hey folks! Sorry I’ve ended up with another double blog post day, but I had some blog issues this week which has thrown my schedule a little bit, and I had a few bits of timely information to share so I thought I would do a blog post of July Club News!

Magnolia Lane Crafternoon for MIND

Hey folks! So, I haven’t done an in person event for a while. Partly because my day job has been crazy busy, and partly because I had a baby 8 weeks ago! However, I had an email from MIND a few weeks ago about their Crafternoon, and I thought it would be the perfect way to get back into doing events again.

MIND Crafternoon with StampinByHannah Teesside July 2019

So, this event is a bit special, as I’m fundraising for this fabulous charity. Also, places are extremely limited as I’m hosting this one at home around my dining room table.

What are we making? Well, I thought that a fun Home Decor framed sampler using the stunning Magnolia Lane suite would be fun! Each person will receive a goody bag worth £25 to make their project with, but there will also be heaps of goodies left over to take home too… and cake! (of course!)

Crafternoon happens on the 20th July, however with James’ shifts I’m hosting this event on the 28th so that I can dedicate the time to you rather than holding the baby! Crafternoon starts at 1:30PM and should last 2 hours.

StampinByHannah Magnolia Lane Crafternoon for MIND

Because places are so limited, and I need to close booking next weekend, to book your place drop an email to stampinbyhannah@outlook.com. I’ll send you a PayPal invoice to confirm your spot. Don’t worry, you don’t need a PayPal account to pay, just a credit or debit card. Crafternoon costs £30 and is only available in person.

However, this fun project is also included in this months Magnolia Lane Retreat in a Box too! AND I’ll be donating 10% of my commission from the Retreat in a Box to MIND too.
