Inspire.Create.Challenge #171 | Summer with Beach Day

Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah for another Inspire.Create.Challenge! This time we have a fun theme of ‘Summer’, and so it felt only right to grab for the Beach Day stamp set. I have to admit I didn’t buy the dies for this set, so there is a little bit of fussy cutting on this card… but it was simple, and definitely worth it!

I am in the process of moving my craft room, and so I’m playing about with my photos again. I do love taking photos on this tray!

The card base on this card is summer splash, and I’ve used all 5 new In Colours to colour the surf boards. The embossed layer is actually Coastal Cabana, with I think works really well, with the extra dimension of a bit of Crumb Cake

Thanks for checking out my blog today. Do hop over to the Inspire.Create blog for more Summery inspiration!

Inspire.Create.Challenge | Enduring Beauty

Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah and to this week’s Inspire.Create.Challenge. It’s been a few months since I managed to join in with the Design Team, life has been a bit hectic and my crafty mojo up’d and left sometime in January! (About the same sort of time that I fell pregnant with baby number 3… so that might have something to do with it!

Anyway, aiming to do better, and with a new crafty space about to appear in my house, it’s time to get back on the blogging horse!

So, this week’s Inspire.Create.Challenge is a sketch, and I LOVE this one.

This card is the ‘sister’ of the card I shared yesterday. It uses the Enduring Beauty Stamp set, dies and masks, as well as the Happy Little Things bundle, and a piece of Nature’s Sweetness Designer Series Paper.

The card base is in Pretty in Pink, and I trimmed off the two front corners to create a sort of triangle front panel.

The floral is coloured with Petunia Pop and Summer Splash Stampin’ Blends (I really cannot get enough of these new colours!) and I finished it with a trio of the new In Colour Adhesive Dots.

Please hop over to the Inspire.Create.Challenge blog to see more inspiration and I hope to see you really soon!

InspireINK | June 2024 – Blends and Enduring Beauty

InspirInk Blog Hop Header Stampin' Up! team blog hop

Hello! Well, this is a touch embarrassing! I haven’t blogged for 5 months… but thought today would be a great day to restart! So here we are!

The InspireINK blog hop this month has a theme of “What’s on your desk” and I’ve been fiddling about with Blends a lot recently as I try and revive my crafty mojo which has been slight more than MIA in recent months.

I’ve actually got 2 cards to share over the weekend, both very similar, using the brand new 2024-2026 In Colours (which I LOVE!) as well as the Enduring Beauty stamps and masks, and the Happy Little Things bundle.

This card uses Pretty in Pink and Summer Splash Stampin’ Blends to colour the floral image. The card base and ‘Celebrate’ stamping are both in Petunia Pop.

Right. Ready to see what the rest of the team have on their desks?

Inspire.Create.Challenge | Hello There Sale-a-bration…

Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah for another Inspire.Create.Challenge. This time we have a fabulous challenge inspired by the new January-April catalogue or Sale-a-bration.

I haven’t discussed this years Sale-a-bration yet. This fabulous offer lasts from now until the end of February and gives you a free gift (of your choice!) every time you spend £45. There are some items which require a £90 spend, and today’s project uses one of those.

This is Softly Sophisticated bundle; which includes a stamp set and an embossing folder. This stamp set utilises one of my favourite techniques; 2-step stamping.

Here I’ve stamped the leaves in Old Olive, before adding the flowers in Crushed Curry. The sentiment is then heat embossed in black over the top.

The embossing folder is so pretty, here I ink blended the Basic White card stock using Lemon Lolly before running it through the Stampin’ Emboss Machine with the embossing folder.

Mini Catalogue Blog Hop

Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah, to 2024 and to the January-April Mini Catalogue Blog Hop!

Things are pretty exciting around here at the moment, lots of changes coming in 2024. I have to admit I had written a massive plan for the year, with classes and events and all sorts. But I have some pretty massive personal goals this year, and so (while I will still be posting and sharing) I have some other things happening in the background which mean that I’m not going to be going at things all guns blazing. Saying all of that, Today is the launch of the new Mini Catalogue, and I couldn’t pass that by without participating in this blog hop!

I made this card in a bit of a hurry, I needed an urgent Congratulations card for my father in law last week and turned to the pages of the new Mini Catalogue as inspiration.

This is part of the Natures Sweetness Suite (page 41-41) and I am completely in love with this Designer Series Paper! It’s a very simple neutral colour palette and some pretty florals, here I’ve used Pebbled Path and a hint of Petal Pink.

Inspire.Create.Challenge #158 | Special card using Textured Floral from Stampin’ Up!

Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah for another Inspire.Create.Challenge. This time our challenge is to CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit) a fabulous card by the lovely Tammy Fite. Hop over to the Inspire.Create blog to see the inspiration card and check out the rest of the Design Team’s creations (and share your own!)

Tammy’s card featured Designer Series Paper and layered die cut pieces, and this is what inspired me to create the card here…

The Designer Series Paper here is Inked Botanicals, and a colour combination that I wouldn’t reach for usually. Calypso Coral isn’t my favourite hue, however, here paired with Petal Pink and Soft Sea Foam I quite like it!

InspireINK Blog Hop | Best of 2023…

InspirInk Blog Hop Header Stampin' Up! team blog hop

Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah for this month’s InspireINK blog hop. Each month we pick a different theme, but December we have a bit of a review of the year, and share our favourite projects we’ve shared this year… as a sort of Best of 2023 compilation.

I had a really tricky time choosing my favourite project of the year, I have had so much fun crafting this year. One of my most favourite products has been the Timeless Arrangements bundle, and so I thought I’d share a project using it again.

I do love a layered card, and this card has more layers that I can count! There is a video for this card too, which you can find HERE.
