Pretty Vintage Card using Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up!

How to create a pretty vintage floral card using Petal Promenade from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah Pretty Vintage Card using Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up!

 

Hello! Yes, a blog post on a Saturday… and a video too! A little while ago the lovely Janice Thomson from the team suggested that we do a video hop again (we did one around this time last year, and it was SO much fun….) and with the current Designer Series Paper special, the time seemed right to do it in July!

Check out my video below, but be sure to check out the other videos too… you can find them all on my YouTube channel in the Playlist section How to use Designer Series Paper on a card using Petal Promenade from Stampin' Up!

I am totally in LOVE with the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper… I actually used it on a gift bag yesterday too! This pack of patterned paper is a beautiful mix of photo-real florals and very pretty marble effects…. and while it’s not my usual style I am totally obsessed and will certainly be using the Buy 3 Get 1 FREE Designer Series Paper Sale to stock up on some more!

My other favourite part of this card is that Die cut Mossy Meadow doily! Oh my goodness it’s pretty, and just about the perfect accent piece for every. single. card. I will probably ever make! I have heaps of inspiration coming to you using this paper and the Beautiful Promenade Bundle during July as I have chosen it for my Suite of the Month… more coming about that on Monday!

Before I let you go and check out everyone else’s fabulous videos… I do just want to let you know that I have a Facebook Live planned for Sunday… over on my StampinByHannah Facebook Page at 11AM… I look forward to seeing you then!

Sale-a-bration Wednesday | Delicate Details

Sale-a-bration 2017 wedding card using Delicate Details from Stampin' Up! UK

Sale-a-bration from Stampin' Up! UK

Are you Loving this years Sale-a-bration?!

It’s it just the most awesome event, heaps of free goodies just for grabbing your crafting essentials (or something a bit special too) I am loving the selection of Sale-a-bration items this year. But I think one of the sets that will likely stay in my long term collection is Delicate Details…. I can see some gorgeous wedding stationary being made with this one, and you could even get the stamp set for free when you buy the card stock! Awesome!

Sale-a-bration 2017 wedding card using Delicate Details from Stampin' Up! UK

How pretty is this card? and super easy to do to, I added 3 of the boarder stamps from the set to a large clear block, and then stamped them repeatedly using Versamark ink. Then added white Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it. The background was added in Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum and Wisteria Wonder using the Sponge Brayer. The Congratulations sentiment is taken from the So In Love stamp set (which comes bundled with the MOST gorgeous dies ever!)

 

Want to get these fabulous stamps for FREE? Its really easy, each time you spend £45 in a single order during Sale-a-bration (now to the end of March) you get to choose a free gift! There are 12 to choose from; stamps, Designer Series Paper, ribbon, a card kit, and a great card storage tin in Gold! If you are ordering Stampin’ Up! will ask you which gift you have chosen once you have added £45 to your basket. Oh, and if you order multiples of £45 you get multiple gifts… so that means that if you spend £90 you get to choose 2, £135 you get 3 etc.

You can also get stamps from the Annual or Spring Summer catalogue for FREE, you just need to choose the Ultimate Stampin’ Bundle and grab a Starter Kit! You will then get to choose 2 stamp sets for FREE, that could be a saving of £90! how awesome is that!


Question of the day: Which stamp sets are you going to choose for FREE in your Ultimate Stampin’ Bundle?

Of course, I don’t get to choose … I grabbed my starter kit almost 3 years ago and I am SO glad that I did! But if I had to choose, hmmm, I think it would be Letters for You and Butterfly Basics!

Team Training Swap

Stampin' Up! UK Number of Years team training swap

This past Sunday I attended Michelle Last’s team training event in Northamptonshire. I LOVE attending Stampin’ Up! events, either corporate organised or events arranged by demonstrators, they are always wonderful and a great excuse to spend the day with lovely people, crafting and eating cake!

I set off from home at 6AM (yes, it felt very early!) and got on completely deserted roads travelling southbound. I did stop once, needed some breakfast! but arrived just after 09:30 in time for our 10AM start.

I have talked before about swaps, and I love swapping crafty ideas with other demonstrators. This time Michelle had asked us to make only 6 swaps, as we swapped in smaller groups to make it a little more manageable for everyone. I’m already planning my swaps for April’s On Stage Local event in Telford, and I have to admit, making 6 swaps was way way quicker than making 40+!

Stampin' Up! UK Number of Years team training swap

Its not very often I use black in my card making, but for me the whole point of attending these events is to push myself out of my comfort zone! So, here I am with a Black card base, Basic Grey embossed panel, and Mint Macaron stamped piece. I think the ‘Look who’s turning’ sentiment is great, and the ‘(again)’ just makes me giggle. My dad celebrates the anniversary of his 21st birthday every year (rather than admit quite how old he is!) and so I think this card might have to make a reappearance for his birthday this year!

Stampin' Up! UK Number of Years 21 again birthday card

I had great fun making these cards as my swap, but not as much fun as I had card making at the event!

Pinkies team training make and takes

One of the great things about attending training days with other demonstrators is getting the chance to use products you haven’t got round to buying yet! and this weekend I used an Aqua painter for the first time, what a difference – they are awesome! I’m not sure that I won’t still reach for my paint brush once in a while, but I am converted! Aqua painters are the way to go!

Stampin' Up! UK Paula Gorry

We were joined by the fabulous Paula Gorry from the Stampin’ Up! UK office at training this weekend, and she was kind enough to bring each and every person a swap card! It’s already on my wall of inspiration 🙂

How you all had a great weekend, I’m sorting out thank you cards and hostess gifts ready for posting tomorrow, probably should get back to it….

Handbag packets!

Stampin' Up! UK Business packet

I am an independent Stampin’ Up!® demonstrator, this means that I create beautiful things with top quality card stock, ink, and rubber stamps, and share them with you! (and teach a few classes, hold a couple of parties, and attend a shed load of craft fairs!)

I recently attended a Stampin’ Up! organised training day (back in May!) and one of the demonstrator presenters (Rhoda Macpherson) presented this idea of keeping packets in your handbag, to introduce to people what it is we do! I LOVE this idea, I have carried business cards since I became a demonstrator, and even though they are hand-stamped, they didn’t really say what it was I am all about! So, thank you Rhoda, this now have pride of place in my handbag (and on my display table at classes, and on the front of my stall at fairs!)

Stampin' Up! UK Business packet

 

These use the Sketches Dots Tag a Bag Gift Bags. You know my love of the Tag a Bag kit items by now! Check out page 151 of the Annual Catalogue for some great gift packaging ideas, including pre-cut and scored boxes, a variety of bags and even labels and tags. They are awesome!

I paired the bags with some more detailed business cards, featuring not only my contact details, but also some information about me and what I do. This information is printed onto Whisper White card stock (yes it sales through my printer without any issues) and matted onto a piece of Bermuda Bay. They had to have some stamping too, so I grabbed out one of my current favs, Endless Thanks.

Stampin' Up! UK sketched dots tag a bag business cardsI have been loving the colours from the Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper stack – Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Cucumber Crush, Hello Honey, Pool Party, Tip Top Taupe, Watermelon Wonder and Whisper White – and so I have used these colours here too!
