Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah for another Global Design Project challenge. This week its a very simple sketch, almost just a grid.
I’ve not had a lot of crafty time recently, thanks to a lot of very long shifts at the day job, the enormous number of children’s birthday parties and of course all the things that need doing in the lead up to Christmas. However, I managed to find most of a day to potter around in my craftroom yesterday (being disturbed only by the ASDA delivery driver!) and so got to making something for this week’s GDP.
I haven’t used my Watercolour pencils for ages… and I think I probably need more practice! I haven’t added water (or Blender pen) to these, choosing to embrace the sketchy look. Both the stamps and the Designer Series Paper are from the Zany Zoo suite in this years Annual Catalogue, I love these cute critters! So great for kids birthday cards! (which reminds me I need to get making a card for my son’s birthday on Thursday!)
Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah for this week’s Inspire.Create.Challenge. This time we have a really interesting colour combination of Balmy Blue, Lemon Lolly and Moody Mauve. I took a little while to ponder this one, but settled on using the ever so lovely Timeless Arrangements bundle, but needed something in the background.
I settled on using the Abundant Beauty Masks, but rather than just inking through the mask, I pulled out the Embossing Paste instead.
Use your Silicone mat as a holding place for your paste. I add ink to the mat and then put the paste on top and mix using a Palette knife to get coloured paste.
Add more paste that you think you’ll need, you can always scrape it off or use more to add more texture
Make sure you clean anything you’ve used your paste with quickly afterwards using soap and water… this stuff dries really solid!
You don’t need to cover the whole piece of cardstock with paste, leaving white space can be really pretty
Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah and our November InspireINK blog hop! This month we are sharing Festive projects… and I seriously cannot wait to see what the rest of the Design Team have created. You can find the links to everyone at the end of this post, please do hop along and leave some comments as you go.
I made this card as part of a Reel for Instagram last weekend, it uses the Gift of Giving stamp set and Stampin’ Blends in the 2022-2024 In Colours.
Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah for this month’s Technique Tuesday Blog Hop. Gosh its been a while since I have managed to take part in one of these… so excited to be back though! This months technique is Dry Embossing… although this card actually features both heat embossing and dry embossing.
I made this card for my sister-in-law’s birthday this week. using the In the Moment stamp set. You can see the heat embossing part of this card over on my Instagram. The background is one of the Online Exclusive embossing folders which for me is an absolute staple.
Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah for this week’s Inspire.Create.Challenge. I have to admit that this was a bit last minute… a card made yesterday morning! This week’s challenge is a sketch, hop over to the Inspire.Create blog to see it and the other fabulous creations from the Design Team.
There isn’t a lot of stamping on this card. It uses the Walk in the Forest Designer Series Paper, and both the tree and the bear are cut from this paper too! The tag is from the Merry and Bright bundle, along with the sentiment.
Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah and another Global Design Project idea. So, I made a card for last week.. posted it on Social Media and completely forgot to share it here! Honestly, head has been in the shed for the past couple of weeks… so many shifts at work and juggling childcare hasn’t left me with a lot of brain space for crafting, let alone blogging and sharing.
This week’s challenge is a sketch, and I have kept fairly strictly to it this time. The stripes in the background are hand drawn using a Stampin’ Blend. I’ve gone for a bit of tone on tone here with Orchid Oasis card stock and Blends.
The flowers and sentiment are from the Love For You bundle, and are stamped in Sweet Sorbet, Crushed Curry and Boho Blue.
I have a video for this card coming on Saturday. but wanted to get it uploaded here first.
Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah and this week’s Inspire.Create.Challenge. This time out we have a fun inspiration challenge. Check out the Inspire.Create blog to see the inspiration piece (and the fab creations by the rest of the Design Team too!)
I haven’t used Zany Zoo for ages, but Karen’s card used two of the hippo’s from the Designer Series Paper. I have changed it up a bit, and used the cute dancing leopards from the stamp set instead.
Karen’s card was also a Fancy Fold… and while I do LOVE a Fancy Fold, all the measurements were too much for my brain this week. So, I flattened it and created this instead.
The Designer Series Paper is from the Bright and Bold suite (that’s the one with all the Balloons!) but I LOVE this piece of paper!
Hello! and Welcome to StampinByHannah. I’ve been a bit quiet here on the blog, as after our recent Team event my crafty mojo sort of up-d and left. But, I checked out this week’s Global Design Project on Monday and managed to create not just this card but several others too! Love it when that happens!
I’ve been using the Merry Bold and Bright suite a fair bit recently, after using it to create an inspiration station for our recent team event. You can see how this card came together in this week’s Vlog.
Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah for this week’s Global Design Project entry. This week the theme is Pattern… and I dived straight into my pile of Designer Series Paper for this one and spotted this lovely pattern in the Let’s Go Shopping suite.
I couldn’t leave it at just one patterned though! The die cut circle is embossed using one of the Basic 3D Embossing Folders. I reached for the coordinating stamp set for the sentiment and this cute pot plant… and finished the card with a trio of Iridescent basic pearls.
