How to create a die cut Pansy using Stampin’ Up! products

Hello! Happy Friday! The weekend is in sight, and I have a box of fabulous new Stampin’ Up! goodies arriving today. What more could a girl want?! A Friday video? oh, go on then!

Pretty Happy Birthday Card using Pansy Petals from Stampin' Up!

The Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper is currently on sale (15% off!) and I am really loving the collection of patterns. They aren’t all floral, there are also some stunning stripes, and pretty ginghams in there too! I have another card using this suite coming on Sunday too

This card was really simple to put together, it just took a bit of time to do all the die cutting. Top Tip though; put Adhesive Sheet on the back of your card stock before you die cut. This way, you basically create die cut, card stock stickers that you can quickly stick together. You could also use liquid glue, but this way is much less messy!

InspireINK Blog Hop | Milestone Birthday with Blossoms in Bloom

InspirInk Blog Hop Header Stampin' Up! team blog hop

Welcome to StampinByHannah this morning! I am so excited to be joining in with the InspireINK blog hop again. This months theme was ‘Milestone Birthday’, and the last milestone birthday cards I made were for James’ 100 year old Nannie. So, I decided I’d make another card for 100, but you could use this idea for any birthday really.

Pretty Floral 100 year birthday card using Blossoms in Bloom from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

The Blossoms in Bloom stamp set is so pretty, and great for when you just need a hint of a floral. Here I stamped it in Polished Pink, Soft Succulent and Pale Papaya, but all the colours I stamped off first for a softer look. Label dies are absolutely a staple in my craft room and these Tasteful Labels are a favourite at the moment, love the shape of this one.

The numbers are die cut using the Playful Alphabet dies, from some Gold foil cardstock, and the card is finished with a trio of jewels.

Do pop around the blog hop, using the links below to see some more fabulous Milestone Birthday inspiration!

Happy Birthday with In Good Taste

On Wednesday I promised I’d share another card using the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper. I made this card in a bit of a hurry last weekend for my Father in Laws birthday, and I love that the In Good Taste papers allow you to create a simply, masculine card – quickly!

Simply Masculine birthday card using In Good Taste Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

This card actually uses the Sweet Strawberry stamp set from the January-June Mini Catalogue. I am a bit of a sucker for a bit of heat embossing, and this leaf stamp was perfect for adding a little extra something to this simple card.

The sentiment is taken from the same stamp set; but the stamp normally reads ‘Happy Birthday you sweet thing’… not really what I wanted on my Father in Law’s birthday card. So, I masked off ‘you sweet thing’ with some Washi Tape when I inked it up, and so it only stamped Happy Birthday!

Rooted in Nature | Man’s Birthday Card

This Man’s Birthday Card has been sat in my pile of cards to blog about for about 2 months. In fact this card was received by the birthday boy before Christmas, and I’ve only just got around to sharing it with you.

Rooted in Nature birthday card for men using Stampin' Up! products with StampinByHannah

I like to keep men’s cards simple, and I love using the Rooted in Nature stamp set for that too. Here I stamped that fabulous wood piece in Gray Granite before layering over the ribbons and sentiment.

Speaking of the sentiment, this one is from the new Itty Bitty Birthday’s stamp set, and its perfect for a simple Happy Birthday! Here I’ve heat embossed it in white onto a scrap of Basic Black card stock

Quick and Simple Birthday Card using Rooted in Nature from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

This card was then finished with a couple of lengths of ribbon; Burlap and Grosgrain in Call Me Clover, and one of the lovely True Gentlemen Buttons.

Birthday Card Week | True Gentleman

Birthday Card Week Quick and Easy Guys Birthday Card using True Gentleman from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah Birthday Card Week True Gentleman

StampinByHannah Independent Stampin' Up! UK Demonstrator Birthday Card week

Before I get into the blog post for today… I just want to let you know that today is my January Facebook Live Online Card Class! Check out my Facebook page at 2PM!

Last Friday was my birthday… but one day isn’t long enough to celebrate is it?! So, this week I have a WHOLE WEEK of fabulous birthday inspiration for you!

Today’s card is one I made for one of my Father-in-law’s birthday’s before Christmas. As a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator I get to pre-order new products the month before catalogue launches, and I took full advantage of that to make this card!

Birthday Card Week Quick and Easy Guys Birthday Card using True Gentleman from Stampin' Up!

One of the many things that drew me to this particular suite in the new Spring Summer catalogue is the colour combination in this Designer Series Paper; Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry, Night of Navy, Tranquil Tide and Very Vanilla. You guys know how much I love a good colour combination, and I LOVE this one! I have to say though that when I first read ‘Crushed Curry’ in the catalogue, it did think that someone had made a mistake, but no, there is a hint of Yellow in these papers and it really makes thinks Pop!

Birthday Card Week Quick and Easy Guys Birthday Card using True Gentleman from Stampin' Up!

Carrying on with the hint of Yellow theme, I added my own to this card. I mentioned a few weeks ago that sometimes I want a hint of colour behind a die cut, and that layering another die cut is sometimes too much… well, I pulled out this technique again here. Once I had the circle stamped and die cut, I ran the circle through my Crushed Curry ink pad to add a hint of colour.

Thanks for checking out StampinByHannah today… please consider signing up for my emails for twice weekly inspiration, and I’ll see you again soon!

Pootlers Birthday Blog Hop – August 2017

Pootles Papercraft Birthday Blog Hop August 2017 Boys Birthday Card using Happy Birthday Thinlit from Stampin' Up!

Hello! If you are joining me as part of the Pootles Birthday Blog Hop… welcome… if not…. welcome anyway! I am so pleased to see you here. Every week on a Sunday I share a card that is simple to make…. so here we go!

I have a fairly quick and easy Birthday card for you today. I have been playing with the Happy Birthday Thinlit so much recently, its a great addition to any card! Here I have die cut it 4 times… 3 times out of So Saffron and once in Dapper Denim and then layered them together for a dimensional look

Pootles Papercraft Birthday Blog Hop August 2017 Boys Birthday Card using Happy Birthday Thinlit from Stampin' Up!

How did I get that Ombre effect? Super Simple…. Before die cutting the Dapper Denim card stock for the top layer of my sentiment, I added Dapper Denim ink (tone on tone) with a Stampin’ Sponge. I love a bit of ink blending; ink up your sponge, and starting off the card stock, swirl the sponge in small-ish circles working your way up the card stock. Add more ink to the bottom than the top and you get this fab effect!

The background on this card was even more simple however… that is just strips of Washi Tape! Fun and quick and easy!

How do you use you Washi Tape?
