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!

Make It Monday | Stained Glass Technique with Beautiful Day

I am forever inspired by the work of other demonstrators. Last week I shared THIS card inspired by a fellow demonstrator on Instagram, and today I though I would share another card I made after seeing THIS fun card using the Stained Glass Technique from my Demonstrator friend Stacey Marsh.

Fun Stained Glass Card Making technique using Beautiful Day from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

This technique is so fun, and so simple! In fact, I know I’ve shared it before, but this time I’ve made a subtle but significant change.

To start the Stained Glass Technique, heat emboss the large butterfly stamp from Beautiful Day onto a piece of Vellum using White Stampin’ Emboss powder. Then, on the reverse of the vellum, colour the butterflies using Stampin’ Blends. Last time I used Stampin’ Write Markers; which works just as well, however Blends dry quicker and therefore the risk of smudging the ink is much reduced.

Thinking of you butterfly card using Beautiful Day from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

To make the Blackberry Bliss Blend Colouring really POP I the mounted the Vellum onto a piece of Whisper White, and then added this to a card base of Blackberry Bliss.

The sentiment is also from Beautiful Day, and has been heat embossed in White onto Blackberry Bliss. To complete the card, I wanted to add something extra, and in rummaging through my stash of embellishments I found the Clear Epoxy Dots and thought they would be perfect!

Thinking of You Beautiful Day

Thinking of you card using Beautiful Day from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah Thinking of You Beautiful Day

 

I made this card a couple of months ago for one of my Stampin’ Sisters…. and somehow I forgot to blog it! Until now that is! I am so happy that the Beautiful Day Stamp Set has carried over through to the new Annual Catalogue.

How to make a fun Butterfly Thinking of you card using Beautiful Day from Stampin' Up!

The Butterfly is stamped in Stazon Ink, and then I added Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist over the top with a Stampin’ Sponge. To contain the ink a little I did create a Butterfly shaped mask using copier paper… just to protect the white space.

Sponged Butterfly Thinking of you card using Beautiful Day from Stampin' Up!

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark and heat embossed in Whisper White Stampin’ Emboss Powder… and the card is finished with a trio of ribbons; Basic Black Shimmer Ribbon, Bakers Twine and Copper Metallic Thread.

What was the last occasion you made a card for?

Make It Monday | Watercolour Stamping with the Stamparatus

How to do watercolour stamping using colouring pens with Stampin' Write Markers from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah Make It Monday Watercolour Stamping with the Stamparatus

Make It Monday

I have been playing with the Stamparatus for a good couple of months now….  and I used it for just about every one of my OnStage Display Board samples, and it’s a pretty constant feature on my desk. I absolutely LOVE it, and I am SO excited that the full launch happens on the 1st June with the Annual catalogue, and you guys can get your hands on one.

Pretty Watercolour Flower Birthday Card using Stampin' Up! Beautiful Day

This pretty card uses the Beautiful Day stamp set. I seriously can’t get enough of this set, it’s just makes such pretty and simple cards. I have a fun technique to share with you too… check the video to see how I stamped the flower!

The sentiment on this card is stamped in Night of Navy ink onto Vellum. Because ink can take a while to dry on Vellum I will often add a layer of Clear Stampin’ Emboss powder to seal in the colour.

I haven’t done any watercolour techniques for ages… I forget how much I enjoy messing around with ink and water sometimes!

Go for Greece Blog Hop | Beautiful Day Birthday Card

Pretty Night of Navy Birthday card using the Butterfly stamp from Beautiful Day from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah Go for Greece Blog Hop Beautiful Day Birthday Card

Go for Greece Blog Hop

I’m back blog hopping today with the fabulous ladies from Go for Greece! I have been having so much fun (and learning a LOT!) from this wonderful bunch of women…. and being able to join them for another blog hop is so exciting!

I actually made this card during a really organised few days at the start of the month… before we had attending Stampin’ Up! OnStage, and learned about some of the upcoming changes to out inks and colour families. I have a full blog post about the changes, that you can find HERE! One of the changes though is that Night of Navy will move colour family from the Regals into the Neutrals. I LOVE this idea… as I use Night of Navy as a neutral so often, and it is one of my ‘go to’ card base colours too.

How to make a pretty butterfly Birthday Card using Beautiful Day from Stampin' Up!

I have been playing with Vellum a lot recently, I just LOVE the soft effects you can create with it. This card has a layer of Vellum over the top of the stamped butterfly. The trick with using Vellum on cards is getting it to stick! Here I have used glue does behind that big fat bow, and a small piece of Tear & Tape behind the heat embossed sentiment. I’ve used Tear & Tape because its clear, and so when you use it on Whisper White card stock it disappears! Awesome!

Go for Greece Blog Hop Happy Birthday Card using Beautiful Day

Today’s card is finished with a pretty double bow of the retiring Night of Navy Crinkle Seam Binding Ribbon, I am so sad to see this go I’ve used it SO much! The other ribbon is the 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon which I was excited to see is in the new Annual Catalogue! I will be sharing more about what is coming, and how you can get a catalogue from me really soon, but in the meantime do hop along to the other ladies on this fabulous blog hop… I’m sure some of them might just have a couple of sneak peaks for you!

Embossed Resist Berry Burst Birthday

Berry Burst Embossed Resist Birthday Card using Beautiful Day from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah Embossed Resist Berry Burst Birthday

 

You guys know how much I love playing with inks… and today’s card features one of my favourite stamping techniques; Embossed Resist!

Berry Burst Embossed Resist Birthday Card using Beautiful Day from Stampin' Up!

The Embossed Resist technique is simple to achieve but so much fun, and there are so many different looks you can get that the possibilities are almost endless! So, here the flowers from Beautiful Day were stamped down the left hand side of the piece of Whisper White card stock in Versamark ink, and then heat embossed with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Then Berry Burst ink is added over the top with a sponge… where the heat embossing is resists the ink and therefore remains white while the rest of the card stock becomes coloured.

Berry Burst Embossed Resist Birthday Card using Beautiful Day from Stampin' Up!

The rest of the card came together pretty quickly, with the stamped sentiment from the Beautiful Day Stamp Set, Berry Burst Woven Ribbon, and a trio of Petal Passion Embellishments.

Facebook Live Online Card Class Replay | Beautiful Day

Facebook Live Online Card Class with Brusho and Beautiful Day from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah Facebook Live Online Card Class Replay Beautiful Day

Stampin' Up! Facebook Live StampinByHannah UK

This past Tuesday was my January Facebook Live Online Card Class. I am LOVING doing Facebook Live, and had a few people join me live this month. I am planning a free class in the first 2 weeks of each month in 2018, and you can find all the upcoming dates on my calendar.

How to use Brusho from Stampin' Up! with Beautiful Day

The first card in this months class is a super fun CASe of a card in the Stampin Up! Spring Summer Catalogue. CASE stands for Copy and Selectively Edit and is basically a nice way of saying that I took quite a lot of inspiration from Stampin’ Up! with this one! I am LOVING using Brusho and had a lot of fun colouring this butterfly.

Brusho is great but there is a bit of a learning curve… and I’m still not sure I’m completely satisfied with how I am using it. However, here the water was added first, and then Brusho sprinkled over. I would suggest having both an Aqua-Painted and a Stampin’ Spritzer to hand when using Brusho. You can find my Introduction to Brusho video HERE!

Facebook Live Online Card Class featuring Beautiful Day by Stampin' Up!

The second card in this class doesn’t use Brusho at all! For all the Beautiful Day stamp set has been designed with Brusho in mind, there are heaps of ways to use it without colouring it! I have already shared THIS card which uses Beautiful Day and Stampin’ Blends.

You can get your complete card kit for this class (excluding the stamps and Brusho) by shopping with me during January. All you need to do to claim your kit is to add the January Code Club Code to your order at checkout.

Facebook Live Online Card Class with Brusho and Beautiful Day from Stampin' Up!

The 3rd and final card in this months Facebook Live Online Card Class is this one… which I didn’t actually complete during the class! (I mean… who finished all their cards in class right?!).There is also yet another Heat Embossed sentiment BUT I did trim the sentiment down, by chopping off the ‘Always’!

Before I go, I do just want to mention the fabulous Sale-a-bration joining offer… This fabulous offer is more than just £130 worth of Stampin’ Up! products for £99, with 2 extra stamp sets for FREE. Joining Stampin’ Up! is like being part of a special club, filled with crafting inspiration, events, and fun! If you have written your wish list and it comes to more than £90 please do consider grabbing a Starter Kit and becoming a part of my team. For more information check out my Joining Page or FAQ’s!

I do hope that you enjoyed class this month. If you did, please do consider signing up for my Stamp of the Month Club, this month we are playing with the Petal Palette Stamp set.

Techniques Video Tutorial How to get started with Brusho from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah 12 Days of Giftaways (Day 11) Brusho!

Stamping Techniques Series

It’s FRIDAY! actually… it’s more than just Friday today, today is my 30th Birthday. I am super excited to be sharing my 30th Birthday year with Stampin’ Up! and have some celebratory plans coming later in the year. Today I’m planning on taking the day as a ‘Me Day’ although I am sure that James has some other plans!

Techniques series Fun Birthday Card using Brusho and Beautiful Day from Stampin' Up!

Today’s video is a little different, in that I don’t have an actual project to make with you, but I wanted you to see how easy it is to get started with Brusho!

I do have a couple of top tips:

  • Clear your work area … Brusho can get a little messy, particularly if you are using it with a Stampin’ Spritzer, so tidy up anything precious before you start
  • If you don’t like messy fingers I would suggest grabbing some disposable gloves!
  • Time… it’s likely to run away with you once you get started, so make sure you’ve got an afternoon free to play!

Every month I share an Online Card class Live on Facebook. My next class is at 2PM (GMT) on the 9th January, and we are going to play with the Beautiful Day stamp set as well as Brusho a little more! Do pop over and Like my Facebook Page for reminders of when I am going Live as well as a heap of extra inspiration and Stampin’ News too…
