Pootlers Team Blog Hop | Happy Birthday with Peaceful Poppies

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

Hello!

Welcome to the Poolers Team Blog Hop! I have to admit to being a bit of a last minute larry this time (in fact, I wrote this blog post after the deadline! oops!)

Peaceful Poppies Happy Birthday Card using Stampin' Up! products for the Pootlers Team Blog Hop with StampinByHannah

When I first saw the catalogue last month I knew that the Peaceful Poppies Suite was at the very top of my list. The Designer Series Paper alone for me is an absolute winner! It’s that pretty watercolour, floral that Stampin’ Up! do SO well, with a strong theme of Blackberry Bliss, a colour I just cannot resist!

This card was the very first thing I made with it too! A Blackberry Bliss card base, layered with a piece of that gorgeous paper, and then added to with a couple of die cuts, a sentiment and a scattering of sequins! Just the sort of card that makes my heart happy.

Stampin’ Up! January-June Mini Catalogue!

Stampin' Up! Spring Summer Catalogue 2020

Oh my goodness, why do these things come around so quickly?

The Stampin’ Up! January-June Mini Catalogue launched this morning, and I forgot to write the blog post! Ooops!

I haven’t mailed out any catalogues this time for a few reasons; 1. I haven’t had time more than anything, babies first Christmas took priority over envelope stuffing this year, 2. The last 2 catalogue runs I’ve done haven’t had the interest that I have had before, catalogues cost me money to buy and post, and without the return on my investment it just wasn’t worth the time it takes. I do have a small stash of catalogues though, so if you want one do drop me a message and let me know

You can download a copy of the Mini Catalogue HERE!

Inspire.Create.Challenge 058 | Colour Challenge with Rooted in Nature!

Oh my goodness, I am rather pleased with this card… particularly because I whipped it up at the last minute on Monday night! You’d think I’d be a bit more organised seeing as I set the challenges, but no, at the moment I’m a last minute Annie. But, last minute is better than not at all isn’t it? I pulled the three colours of today’s colour challenge off my shelf, and the Rooted in Nature stamp set popped into my head, and very quickly this card appeared in my mind’s eye.

Thinking of you card using Rooted in Nature from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

This week’s colour challenge is Blushing Bride, Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive, and each colour is on each one of those fabulous leaves.

I do enjoy a good ink-y technique, and this one is quick and very effective. Ombre Stamping is super easy, and all you need is your stamp, 3 ink pads and a couple of sponges. It does also help if you’ve got well ink-ed pads.

Starting with the lightest colour, load the sponge with ink and the use the sponge to add the ink to the stamp. Then work through the colours, adding each one to the stamp. Breath onto the stamp to reactive the ink before stamping. See, quick and simple, and it gives some very pretty results.

The leaves were then die cut using the coordinating Nature’s Roots dies, and popped up on the card using a few Dimensionals. The sentiment is stamped in Cherry Cobbler, and I did use my Stamparatus to make sure I got it straight and solid (I actually stamped it twice, which is why I’ve ended up with a bit of an inky smudge!)

Then, the card is finished with a double bow of Linen Thread and a trio of Noble Peacock Rhinestones.

Inspire.Create.Challenge 057 | Christmas Time Fancy Fold

This week’s Inspire.Create.Challenge is Fancy Folds! I LOVE a fancy fold project, and cannot wait to see what everyone creates…. particularly as I’m in a bit of a creative rut at the moment, and could really do with a fast injection of inspiration to make my Christmas Cards!

Oh Christmas Tree Fancy Fold card using Stampin' Up! products with StampinByHannah

I love this Fancy Fold, it’s super simple to create and always impresses people when I gift it! I suppose it’s a sort of Z fold, and its really easy to jazz up to!

Measurements;

Card base; 14.8 x 21 cm, scored at 4.5 and 10.5 cm

Whisper White layers; 14.3 x 4 cm, 14.3 x 5.5 cm, and 14.3 x 10 cm

Fancy Fold Christmas Card using Most Wonderful Time from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

The Most Wonderful Time Suite is just stunning, and comes all together in one complete kit (you just need to add Card Stock and Ink!), and it makes really cute and quick cards.

I’ve also added a Stitched Oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies as a simple background for that lovely tree stamp.

I finished the card with 5 of the self adhesive stars that comes in the Most Wonderful Time suite, and a simple sentiment

Come Sail Away Anniversary Card…. and a make from James!

Hey folks!

Well, I’ve had a super busy few weeks settling back into my full time day job. But, as part of that I’m trying hard to get back into some creative me time, and that includes a spot of blogging.

It was our wedding anniversary back in August (yes, this card has been sat around waiting for me to write about it for a while!) and of course I HAD to make James a special card. He always steals some time in my craft room for our anniversary or my birthday, and so a bought card just isn’t an option! Saying this, an anniversary card for a guy is NOT the easiest make…. but it is made easier with a more masculine suite of products and so I pulled out Sailing Home.

Anniversary Card using Sailing Home from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

The Come Sail Away suite is obviously a bit nautical, which I think often works well for a man’s card, but also has a more masculine colour palette; Balmy Blue, Basic Black, Mossy Meadow, Night of Navy, Soft Suede, and Whisper White.

I have also added Pretty Peacock to this, because I just cannot put this colour away at the moment, I just love it! (so much so I’ve just painted a wall in my kitchen a very similar shade!). The sentiment and compass are both stamped in Pretty Peacock, while I also added a watercolour wash to a square of Watercolour Paper too!

Pretty Peacock Come Sail Away card for a man's anniversary card using Stampin' Up! products with StampinByHannah

The Sailing Home stamp set that coordinates with this fab suite also has a set of matching dies. So, I also added some die cut pieces of rope and a ships wheel, along with die cutting some of the stamped images from the stamp set. I adore this layered look, how about you?

James’ Card…

Like I said earlier, James also makes me a card for our anniversary. I think he’s done a pretty good job this time!

He’s punched the butterflies from card stock using the Butterfly Duet punch and added the sentiment using the Well Said stamp set…. all in shades of purple (my favourite!)

Inspire.Create.Challenge #055 | Bloom and Grow Thank you card

Hey folks!

So nice to see you this week, I’m trying to get back onto the blogging horse, and am aiming for 3 blog posts a week. I managed to blog twice last week, and I’m already writing this week a bit ahead of time so fingers crossed I can drop back into a routine!

Inspire.Create.Challenge colour challenge Night of Navy Old Olive Lovely Lipstick Blushing Bride Thank you card using Bloom and Grow from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

This week’s Inspire.Create.Challenge is a fun colour combination; Blushing Bride, Lovely Lipstick, Night of Navy and Old Olive. I almost took a Christmas-y twist on this one, but then I spotted Bloom and Grow on my stamp shelves and went floral instead!

The floral spray is heat embossed with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and then watercoloured with Lovely Lipstick, Night of Navy and Old Olive. I’ve add a background wash in Blushing Bride, the sentiment stamped in Night of Navy and a trio of Night of Navy jems from the Noble Peacock suite to finish.

Watercolour thank you card using Bloom and Grow from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

All the watercolouring is done on the new Fluid 100 watercolour paper, available through Stampin’ Up! It’s SO nice, I love a bit of watercolouring and this paper is smoother than the previously stocked Watercolour Paper and so makes for such a nice finish.

Hop over to the Inspire.Create.Challenge blog to see the other Design Team’s creations and add your own using the fun colour combination too!

See you next time!

Beauty and Joy Team Swap Card

Hey folks!

Yes, I’ve finally managed to get around to blogging an actual creative project! This might well be card you’ve seen before, particularly if you received a copy of the Autumn Winter Catalogue from me in September, or if you took part in a recent team card swap.

Beauty and Joy Christmas Card using Stampin' Up! products with StampinByHannah

Beauty and Joy is one of those stamp sets in the catalogue that you might have accidentally skipped over. There are always a few hidden jems, and this one was so hidden that I didn’t remember ordering it! However, I’m so glad I did because its a really fun set to use. It features a collection of different pots and plants that covers a variety of seasons and occasions, and there are loads of looks you can create by mixing and matching different leaves, pots, stems and accessories too!

Here the tree leaves are stamped in Shaded Spruce (Stamped off once), with an Early Espresso trunk, Real Red berries and a Soft Suede basket pot.

A Joyful Christmas Card using Beauty and Joy from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

I also couldn’t resist pairing this stamp set with some of my current favourite dies; these are the Stitched Nested Labels and they are so versatile they never seem to get put away!

Thanks so much for stopping by StampinByHannah today, and I hope to see you here again soon

Stampin’ Up! Autumn Winter Catalogue!

Hey folks! oh my gosh, we are already into September. I have to start by apologising for the lack of posts and inspiration from me for the last month. I haven’t been very well following the birth of my daughter in May, and it came to a head at the end of July. However, I’ve started some treatment and am feeling much better, but my crafty mojo hasn’t quite returned yet.

BUT, the Stampin’ Up! Autumn Winter catalogue launched on Wednesday and I’m sure that my creativity will be back soon!

This Autumn Winter catalogue is one of my favourite Christmas ones for a few years. There are 8 fun suites, mixing Christmas, New Year, Winter, Autumn and Halloween… there really is something for everyone here.
