Thank you Bloom and Grow!

Hey folks. Blog post is a little late this morning, basically because I’d forgotten to write it! However, baby is napping so I’ve got 10 minutes to get a bit of a catch up. Today’s card features one of my favourite new Stamp sets; Bloom and Grow

Heat Embossed Thank you card using Bloom and Grow from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

This pretty floral stamp set comes bundled with a set of dies too, and they don’t just cut out the flower images, but also have a couple of very cool boarder dies that I cannot wait to have a play with!

I’ve been a bit addicted to heat embossing recently, and this card is no exception with both the flowers and the sentiment being heat embossed. I have to say though, how pretty are those flowers heat embossed in gold?! sometimes simple is best, right?

Bloom and Grow is one of those stamp sets that I can see me getting a lot of use out of, partly because of the pretty fonts, but also because there are so many things you could do with those flowers; imagine them coloured with Blends, or watercoloured, or simply stamped in black and white, or used to create a wreath…. so many ideas, so little time!

Pootlers Team Blog Hop | Free as a Bird Thank You Card

Join the Number 1 Stampin' Up! Team in the UK

Hey folks! It’s a special day here today, the first Pootlers Team Blog Hop of the new Stampin’ Up! Annual catalogue! I absolutely LOVE taking part in these blog hops, the girls always work so hard to create some fabulous projects to inspire you with some of the new stamps and goodies in the catalogue. I also coordinate these hops, and with the recent birth of my daughter I did consider not running the hop this time, but, they are so much fun I couldn’t miss one!

Thank you card using flower stamps from Free as a Bird from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

This time I thought I would share a fun way of using the Free as a Bird stamp set. This stamp set is one of my absolute favourites in the new catalogue, and it forms part of just the most gorgeous suite of products. Bird Ballard includes a bright and fun pack of Designer Series Paper, pretty lace trim, some lovely embellishments and just the most beautiful tin and notecards. I’ll list all the goodies in this suite at the bottom of this blog post.

Pretty watercolour Thank You card using Free as a bird and Bird Ballard from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

This card was inspired by my friend Stacey Marsh and a card she made using another new stamp set, Sailing Home. I just really liked the diagonal stamping, here I’ve used the pretty flower stamps from Free As A Bird and stamped in Stazon ink onto Shimmer White card stock

Then each flower was (very) loosely watercoloured in either Rococo Rose for the large flowers, or Mint Macaron for the smaller ones.

Rococo Rose Thank You card using Free as a bird from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

I did actually originally stamp the sentiment straight onto the card, but it just didn’t quite have the right impact. So, I stamped it again onto a scrap of card stock the same width as the stamped panel and popped it up on some dimensionals.

Now, I love this stamp set, but I do have one issue… it doesn’t have coordinating dies! So, that flower was fussy cut. But, it does actually cut out quite easily, or it does when you only cut one anyway!

Thank so much for checking out my blog today, I would be so grateful if you would check out the projects the other ladies have created for the Pootlers Team Blog Hop. Just click on the images below to be taken to each of their blogs, and I hope to see you again very soon!

Masculine Sailing Home card using Stampin' Up! products with StampinByHannah

There are lots and lots of lovely stamp sets in the new Annual Catalogue, but Sailing Home is one of my favourite masculine options. Here I’ve paired it with the last new In Colour; Pretty Peacock

Colour Combination

I’ve kept this card super simple, partly because the card didn’t need any more embellishments and partly because I had a baby waking from nap time as I rushed to make this one!

5 Days of Colour | Purple Posy meets Free as a Bird

Hey folks

This card was a real struggle to photograph, Purple Posy is such a subtle colour that I haven’t quite worked out my camera settings yet! However, I have a bit of time to get to grips with it as Purple Posy hasn’t been fully released today with the rest of the catalogue. Unfortunately there is a quality problem with the ink pad and so it’s not available just yet. I will of course let you know when this has been sorted

Free as a bird card using Stampin' Up! products with StampinByHannah

The Free as a Bird Stamp set is another one of my new favourites, and I have another card using it to share with you on Saturday. I am not the biggest bird fan, however, this stamp watercolours so beautifully and you guys know how much I love to watercolour!

Colour Combination

So, this card doesn’t use Purple Posy ink at all, because I don’t have the ink pad either, but I do have the card stock and Designer Series Paper, so I’ve used that instead.

Hello card using Free as a Bird and watercolour with Stampin' Up! and StampinByHannah

In Colour Club

I have a fun In Colour Club running over the next 5 months to allow you to collect all the colours, along with their card stocks, inks, markers, papers and more! Of course, Purple Posy features in this club, but club wont be affected by the current lack of an ink pad.

5 Days of Colour | Seaside Spray meets Bloom and Grow

Hey folks!

Today’s card might be my favourite of the 5 days, I am just totally in LOVE with this stamp set! Bloom and Grow instantly hit me when I flicked through the catalogue, its floral, has coordinating dies and gorgeous sentiments! What’s not to love?

Bloom and grow thank you card using Seaside Spray from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

Seaside spray is a pretty soft blue, its super pretty and is going to be perfect for those Baby Boy birthday cards this year! It looks great with bolder colours too… check out the colour combo;

Colour Combination

The coordinating dies are in the new Stampin’ Up! style packaging and line up slightly differently to the previous types of dies, however they cut beautifully. The new die packets are a slightly different shape to the old ones, but I expect that they will still fit in your storage (they fit in mine!)

In Colour Club

Seaside Spray is one of the 5 new Stampin’ Up! In Colours this year. Each In Colour is available in an ink pad, refil, card stock, Stampin’ Write marker, and has Designer Series Paper, ribbon and embellishments to match too!

You can get all the In Colour goodies plus a whole heap more by joining my In Colour Club in June. I can’t wait to send your first colour!

5 Days of Colour | Rococo Rose meets Beautiful Promenade

Hey Folks

Day 2 of my 5 Days of Colour today to celebrate my 5th Stampin’ Up! anniversary and the release of the 2019-2021 In Colours. Today, I thought I would combine one of the new colours with one of my favourite carry over stamp sets; Beautiful Promenade.

This stamp set is just so pretty, and while both it and the coordinating Beautiful Layers Dies are carrying over into the new catalogue, the bundle price (which saves you 10%) is retiring, so grab it now to get a bargain!

I'm here for you card using Stampin' Up! In Colours and Beautiful Promenade with StampinByHannah

This set is great for layering and has lots of pretty floral images in an almost graphic style, as well as a bit of my fav 2 Step Stamping! Here the flower outlines were stamped in White Craft Ink, before the petal details were added in Rococo Rose for a Tone on Tone effect.

Colour Combination

I don’t think that this is necessarily the most obvious colour combination with this lovely soft pink colour, however it does work really really well and I am sure I’ll be reaching for these again very soon!

Pretty Rococo Rose card using Stampin' Up! products and a fun colour combination with StampinByHannah

I am loving Rococo Rose and can see it being one of my staple colours over the coming months. Although that might be the influence of having a baby girl in the house!

If you love this colour as much as I do, why not check out my In Colour club to get all the fabulous goodies in this colour as well as the 4 other 2019-2021 In Colours.

5 Days of Colour | Terracotta Tile meets Daisy Lane

Hey folks!

Well, today is a BIG day, today is my 5th Stampin’ Up! Anniversary! I’ve had a fabulous 5 years being a Demonstrator with Stampin’ Up! I have met wonderful friends, visited some great places and played with heaps and heaps of gorgeous products! I am aware that this sounds like I’m done… I’m definately not! I cannot wait to see what the next 5 years have in store, although fitting everything in around Niamh is proving to be a little interesting (I see a lot of blogging during nap times in my future!)

So, how am I celebrating my 5th year? well, I have a LOT going on at the moment, so I’m keeping this one a bit low key… but I do have 5 fun blog posts for you for the next 5 days, each one featuring one of the Brand New Stampin’ Up! In Colours and some fun colour combinations!

Stampin' Up! 2019-2020 In Colours Terracotta Tile and Daisy lane Smile card with StampinByHannah

I’ve kept this card fairly simple, because really this post is about the colour combination. But, it also features the Daisy Lane stamp set. This fun set coordinates with the existing Daisy Punch, and also happens to be the focus of my June Code Club Class (more on that next week!)

Colour Combo

This flower is really easy to create with the Daisy Lane stamp set, the stem and leaves are actually one stamp, and then the Daisy stamp is simple enough to line up. I actually stamped the Daisy 4 times on this card, twice on Whisper White panel, and then twice on a scrap of card stock which I then punched with the Daisy Punch. To create the dimension, each petal was bent over my bone folder (think curling ribbon and scissors), and then the Daisy finished with a Clear Faceted Gem.

Smile with Daisy Lane from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

In Colour Club

Terracotta Tile is just one of the 5 new Stampin’ Up! In Colours that are released next week along with the new Annual Catalogue. In Colours are 5 fun colours that file gaps in the standard Stampin’ Up! colour range, they last for 2 years and have the usual collection of inks, card stocks and coordinating papers, embellishments and pens.

I have a fun In Colour Club starting in June, allowing you a simple way of collecting all 5 colours along with the coordinating goodies, PLUS a heap of inspiration and my monthly Code Club Class too! You can find out all about my 2019-2021 In Colour Club, and sign up, HERE!
