Inspire.Create.Challenges Sketch Challenge Tree Thank You Card using Nature's Poem Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!

Ok, so I have a confession… this is the second card I made for this challenge (I plan to share the other one with you on Saturday!)… but this one is my favourite! This happens to me often, when I make a card for an occasion, go away, fall out of love with it and make something else! I’m sure I’m not the only person this happens to!

I do have a bit of an obsession with the Rooted in Nature bundle…. but I’m not apologising for sharing it with you! This bundle HAS to be one of my top picks from the new Stampin’ Up! 2018 Annual Catalogue!

Thank you card using Rooted in Nature from Stampin' Up!

This large tree in particular is one of my favourite pieces, along with it’s coordinating die! I’ve kept the colour combination simple; with Sahara Sand, Tranquil Tide and Whisper White.

The card is finished with a bow in Crumb Cake Nature’s Twine

StampinByHannah Make It Monday Super Special Gate Fold Facebook Live!

Make It Monday

Bit of a difference with this week’s Make It Monday…. but it’s just as special! Actually, it might be MORE special, as I have a fabulous Fancy Fold for you AND a fun giveaway to (one of two launching today…. stay tuned for an update later!)

I shared the complete process of making this card on Facebook Live on Saturday. Have you caught one of my Facebook Live’s yet? This one was a little out of sync, I usually go Live every other Sunday at 11AM… the next one is this coming Sunday… and there is ALWAYS a fun giveaway too. Check the video on Facebook to enter!

I promised that I would share the measurements of this special Gate Fold card BUT… this one is currently only in Metric (because working out both sets of measurements at 11AM on a Saturday morning was just too much for my brain to handle!). However, my fabulous friend Liz has already created an Imperial version…. which I will share on my Facebook page once it goes live on her blog

Card base: 9 x 27 cm, scored on the long side at 4.5, 9, 18 and 22.5 cm

Whisper White layers: 4 pieces that measure; 4 x 8.5 cm

Designer Series Paper: 4 pieces of Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper that measure; 3.5 x 8 cm

Inside pieces; Whisper White: 8 x 8 cm, Petal Pink: 8.5 x 8.5 cm

Outside pieces; Whisper White: 7 x 7 cm, Petal Pink: 7.5 x 7.5 cm

Fun Gate Fold card and custom envelope using Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!

Because this card is a VERY custom size, I HAD to make an envelope for it too! Using the same Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper…

Designer Series Paper; 15.6 x 15.6 cm

Punch and Score using the Envelope Punch Board at 7.8 cm

Global Design Project 140 | Just for you…

Pretty stamped Just for You card using stamps and embossing folders and Rooted in Nature from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah Global Design Project 140 Just for you…

Global Design Team Case The Designer Challenge with Brain King

I haven’t taken part in the Global Design Project for AGES! You guys know how much I LOVE a good creative challenge, and this one is definitely one of the best…. This week’s challenge is a CASE the Designer; where you are actively encouraged to use a card by one of the super talented Design Team, as inspiration for another.

This is the point where I will admit that this is NOT the first card I made for this one, and I might well share the first one with you in a few weeks. This happens to me quite often, particularly when I’m creating for a challenge… I’ll make a card, and then go away for a few hours and better inspiration will strike, and a even better card magically appears on my craft desk. It is awesome!

How to make a pretty delicate Just for You card with leaves and flowers using Rooted in Nature from Stampin' Up!

I love the shape of the stamping on Brian’s card, but I choose here to make that shape smaller… and swap some stamping with some dry embossing. I also really liked Brian’s colour combination…although I have swapped the Basic Black for Grey Granite…. and the Flirty Flamingo for Berry Burst dots using a Stampin’ Write Marker. The floral element from Brian’s card becomes leaves too.

Global Design Project Case the Designer Just for You Natural Card using Rooted in Nature from Stampin' Up!

I’ve been sharing a few cards using the fabulous Rooted in Nature Stamp set recently… including my Facebook Live video from yesterday. I’ll be sharing that one here tomorrow, along with some fabulous Giveaway news too!
