Inspire.Create.Challenge #084 | Ink Blended Thank You Card

Welcome to StampinByHannah today, I am always so grateful for your visit. Today it’s time for another Inspire.Create.Challenge, and this week we have a fabulous colour challenge for you all.

Stampin' Up! Valentines Colour combination for Inspire.Create.Challenge

I am often inspired by the colour combinations in the Stampin’ Up! catalogue, and this one was taken from the Valentines suite this year. Love You Always can be used for so much more than Valentines though, and I thought it a good time (on Valentines day) to give you a heap of inspiration with the suite that’s not totally loved up!

Pretty Ink Blended Thank You card using True Love Designer Series paper from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

I shared a couple of Ink Blended cards on Friday, and this card also used the Blending Brushes to create this pretty background. I took a piece of the True Love Designer Series Paper, and blended the two pink tones; Blushing Bride and Rococo Rose using the Stampin’ Up! Blending Brushes.

This Designer Series Paper is so pretty! I love purely Black and White Designer Series Paper packs, just for this reason; being able to add your own colours and totally change the look and feel of it. It’s so fun!

Heat Embossed Thank you card using Heal your Heart from Stampin' Up! Sale-a-bration with StampinByHannah

The sentiment on this card is taken from the Heal You Heart Stamp Set which is currently FREE with a £45 order during Sale-a-bration. I’ve heat embossed it onto a die cut piece of Vellum, and layered it over a piece of Sahara Sand card stock.

The card is finished with a trio of the Gilded Gems

Don’t forget to pop over to the Inspire.Create.Challenge blog to see the rest of the Design Teams creations and to add your own makes using this lovely colour combination too!

Two big Birthday Cards….

It’s a special day today for our family, its the day my husbands Great Nanny turns 100. Now, we would have dearly loved to be celebrating all together, but of course we can’t. I can, however provide her with two handmade birthday cards. So that is what I have done.

The first uses the brand new Pretty Perennials stamp set, and the coordinating dies. I absolutely LOVE this stamp set, a sweet floral stamp set that makes my heart happy. Here I’ve stamped it in Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry and Old Olive, and used the matching Perennial Petals dies to cut them out. I also added one of the more detailed dies to the large flower for a bit more interest.

The sentiment stamps are lovely in this stamp set too. Here I’ve stamped ‘Happy’ in Memento Black, and then heat embossed ‘birthday’ in white. The Designer Series Paper is called True Love, and is a lovely collection of black and white patterns and florals. The 100 is die cut using the Playful Alphabet from some retired Gold Glitter card stock.

I have a fun class coming in February using the Pretty Perennials bundle and the True Love Designer Series Paper, so do check back for that.

The second card uses both new Sale-a-bration goodies, as well as a retired gem. Now, I wouldn’t usually share a project that features a retired item, but I know so many people that have them (or similar) that I felt that I could.

This card uses the lovely Paper Blossoms Designer Series Paper which is currently available for free with a £45 spend.

The 100 is die cut from Petal Pink card stock, a colour which is featured in the Designer Series Paper, and layered over a vellum label cut from the Tasteful Labels dies.

This card is finished with the birthday sentiment, taken from Blossoms in Bloom.

Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper Swap Card

I took part in a virtual retreat this weekend. With the dreaded virus, the usual in person event had to be cancelled, but instead of missing a year, we chose to take it online instead! I made more projects than I have in months, and had great fun!

One of the best parts of in person Stampin’ Up! events is project swaps, and so we did the same… just sent them in the post instead!

Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper swap card using Stampin' Up! Forever Fern with StampinByHannah

I chose to take part in the Designer Series Paper swap this time, and so had to make cards with paper as the main focus.

This card was really simple to put together, but looks really complicated. I cut the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper to 14.8 x 13.5 cm, so it was the same height as my card base, but a little wider. Then scored the paper on the right hand side at 3cm, and folded it back and put a spot of adhesive where I was going to add my sentiment label.

The card is finished with a die cut leaf from the Forever Flourishing dies, a label from the Painted Labels dies, and sentiment from the Forever Fern stamp set.

Ripped Designer Series Paper and Sailing Home

Hey folks! I’ve been trying to make a conscious effort to use more Designer Series Paper on my cards recently, partly because I am LOVING the new patterns in this years Annual catalogue, and partly because when I cleared out the retired ones from last year I found a stack 2″ deep and 2 packs completely un-opened!

Ripped Designer Series Paper with Sailing Home from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

I’ve made cards using stripes of Designer Series Paper before, but I wanted to change it up a bit for this one. So, I cut 4 cm stripes of paper from a few different sheets of the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper, and then ripped over 1 cm ish of each piece. Each piece is actually only glued at the top, so you could add more dimension by curling them a little too!

Set sail in the direction of your dreams card using Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

The sentiment panel is die cut from the Stitched Shapes dies (I LOVE these!), and then stamped in Balmy Blue and Night of Navy. I actually fussy cut the anchor because I hadn’t got around to buying the dies yet! I have now though, because the Come Sail Away suite is the base for this months Crafty Selection Box. I’ll be sharing the full details of how to sign up on Saturday.

Masculine Encouragement card using Sailing Home from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

This card would make a perfect masculine encouragement card, but the ripped Designer Series Paper would work on just about any papers and for any occasion. What would you use it for?

Annual Catalogue Designer Series Paper Share!

Hello folks!

Sorry for the silence this week, but on the 11th May 2019 my darling daughter Niamh arrived, and so I have spent the last 2 weeks getting to know her and finding my feet as a new mummy! We are both doing well, and I am feeling more like my usual self again. Yesterday I managed to get the first batch of Catalogues bagged and ready to post, so they’ll be hitting the post office this afternoon. You can get a FREE copy of the new catalogue HERE!

Today though I wanted to let you know about my Annual Catalogue Designer Series Paper Shares.

This year there are 12 stunning packs of Designer Series Paper, and to buy them all it would cost you over £140! However, you can have them all, at a fraction of the price by joining in with my Designer Series Paper Share!

What is a Paper Share?

It’s simple, instead of you buying 12 packs of 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper, you share it with 3 other people, and each person gets a 6 x 6″ share of each pack of paper. So, you still get all the patterns and prints, but in a smaller size!

What do I get?

Each share receives a 6 x 6″ Sample of each and every piece of Designer Series Paper in the catalogue. Each pack is labelled with the name and colours in each pack, AND you will also receive the PDF download of my June Code Club Class too!

Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper Shares Annual Catalogue 2019

How much is a Share?

OK, so each share costs £40, including postage and packing

How do I order?

I believe in keeping things simple (not just because with a new baby my brain is pretty full at the moment!) So, all you need to do is complete the form below. Then, between the 26th May and 3rd June I will send you a PayPal invoice which will need to be paid before 10PM on 3rd June. You don’t need a PayPal account, just a credit or debit card. Once the catalogue goes live I can then place the order for all your papers, and (providing there aren’t any back order situations) I will aim to have your shares out to you within 10 days.
