You Are Amazing | Pride Blog Hop

Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah today, for a really fun blog hop celebrating all things pride! When I first signed up to do this hop, my first thought was rainbows… but then Rainbows of Happiness retired at the end of May… and so I had a bit of a re-think.

I stuck with the rainbow idea though! I probably need to move the Ray of Light stamp away from my desk, feels like I’m using it on every project at the moment, but it was just too perfect not to use it for this one. I added the rainbow colours to the stamp on at a time using a Blending Brush, and stamped it using my Stamparatus. It has got a bit muddy… but I think it still works. What do you think?

I kept my Stamparatus out to stamp the sentiment from Amazing Phrasing, to make sure it was super black, and finished the card with a trio of black Classic Matte Dots!

You can find the supply list for this card HERE.

2022 July – December Mini Catalogue Blog Hop | Splendid Day

Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah! I am SO excited to start sharing some of the goodies from the July-December mini catalogue with you all… and what a better way to kick of the catalogue that with a blog hop! I have a heap of blog events coming this month, giving you LOTS of inspiration, so do keep watching for more….

Today thought, I wanted to share something that’s not particularly festive… I know that we all think of Christmas when it comes to the “Autumn-Winter” catalogue, but now that it starts in middle of summer, Stampin’ Up! have changed things a bit and we have a beautiful suite that really lends itself to weddings!

If you’ve seen my Instagram recently, you’ll know I’m a bit obsessed with this background stamp! It’s called Ray of Light and its actually in the Annual catalogue, but it works so well with so many different stamp sets, that I couldn’t help but pair it with Splendid Day for a fun Celebration card.

This card is monotone… a look I really LOVE… in Basic White and Soft Sea Foam. So pretty!

Check out the Supply List for this card HERE!

Share it Sunday | Biggest Wishes Lovely You

Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah… I am a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator based in the UK, and while I am well versed in the art of a Blog Hop, this is the first time I have joined in with Share it Sunday! (I am very excited!)

I’ve tried to keep my card fairly simple today, although it does you two stamp sets and 7 ink pads! I’ve had the Biggest Wish stamp set in my stash for a while, but have never used it… and this felt like the perfect opportunity. I’ve paired it with one of my old favourites; Lovely You, and new favourites; the 2022-2024 In Colours!

Handstamped Happy Birthday card using Biggest Wish and Lovely You from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

The Birthday stamp went down first (with the help of my trusty Stamparatus to get it good and Black!), and then I added all those pretty leaves and florals using the In Colours and Lovely You. I almost left it at that, with the fussy cut HAPPY. But it just didn’t feel quite right!

So, the background stamping is the same Lovely You stamp set, stamped in Gray Granite stamped off once… and then a trio of the 2022-2024 In-Colour Matte Decorative Dots!

Thank you so much for stopping by StampinByHannah today, and I hope you enjoy the rest of the Hop!

InspireINK | Watercoloured Hues of Happiness

Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah for this month’s InspireINK Blog Hop! I love joining in with the ladies at InspireINK, and this month I got to set the challenge!

I know the ladies weren’t all that impressed with my bright and bold choice! So, I’m quite looking forward to hopping later to see what everyone has created!

I’ve been playing with Hues of Happiness a fair bit this past month, and so it was out of my desk when I came to make my card for this months Blog Hop. I’ve also been struggling with my anxiety recently, and I thought this a great set to do some relaxing watercolour with…. so I combined all of that, and this card was born!

All the elements of this card have been watercoloured. The leaves are in Parakeet Party with a layer of Wink of Stella for some added sparkle, and the flowers are watercoloured in Poppy Parade. I used some re-inker to get some really dark colour so its a little more dramatic. The background is Orchid Oasis… and can you spot the splatter of Crushed Curry?

Do hop around the rest of the hop using the buttons below, and I hope to see you again here soon!

Thank You Inspired Thoughts | International Blog Highlight

Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah today for Kylie’s International Blog Highlights. As usual the theme is ‘Thank You’ and there are heaps of demonstrators taking part. Hop over to Kylie’s blog to see them all and vote for your favourites.

Floral Thank you card using Inspired Thoughts and Perfectly Pencilled from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

I shared this card on Instagram as a Reel on Saturday, but thought it needed a place on the blog too! It is actually inspired by a card in the new Annual Catalogue, but I’ve altered the colours and background stamping.

The floral panel uses the Perfectly Pencilled Designer Series Paper, which is Black and White, and then I’ve added colour with Stampin’ Blends in Parakeet Party, Orchid Oasis and Starry Sky. The background is stamped using the little round stamp from Hello Beautiful.

The sentiment is taken from Inspired Thoughts. Both the Papers and this stamp set are featured in this month’s Card Club. I would LOVE for you to join me, you can find out more information by dropping me an email at stampinbyhannah[at]outlook.com.

Pootlers Blog Hop | 3 Card Ideas with the Sun Prints suite from Stampin’ Up!

Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah today. Today is a little bit special, because its our team blog hop, we do about 3 of these a year to celebrate the release of new Stampin’ Up! Catalogues. They are SO much fun, and I hope that you hit some of the other ladies blogs later using the links at the end of this blog post.

When I was shopping through the new Annual Catalogue, this suite didn’t immediately jump out at me. However, after seeing some of the fabulous creations that the Artisan’s had created with it, it fell into my basket!

International Blog Highlights | Thanks Simply Succulants

Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah today, for Kylies International Blog Highlight. While you’re here I would be honored if you would pop over to Kylie’s page and vote for my little card this month. Thank You <3

So, the theme of the Blog Highlight is always the same, it’s a Thank You…. and I LOVE a thank you card! I haven’t used this stamp set for AGES, but picked it up to make a Mother’s Day card last week, and remembered how much I love it, and seeing as its with us for another year, I decided to get it inky again for this blog post. I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest last week, by a lady called Andrea, and so I changed it up a bit and created this!

How to create a stunning Thank you card using Simply Succulents from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

I will admit, this card took me about an hour and a half to create (mostly because I coloured those Succulents with Blends), but I LOVE the way it’s turned out. The background uses the coordinating Potted Succulents dies, and I would STRONGLY advise using some Adhesive Sheet on this one!

The die cut in the centre is sadly retiring soon, but it was available when I checked over the weekend although I wouldn’t hang about it you want it. The centre piece is actually a piece of Basic White card stock, that I’ve coloured using Crumb Cake ink and a Blending Brush!

Thank you Simply Succulents with Stampin' Up! and StampinByHannah

The sentiment is from the same stamp set and I’ve used one of the labels dies from Potted Succulents to die cut it. Finished with some loops of Linen thread and a trio of the Rhinestone Waves Basic Jewels.

Thanks SO much for stopping by today, and don’t forget to vote over on Kylie’s blog post.

Sentimental Swirls | Pootlers Blog Hop!

Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah today. This is the 3rd blog hop with the Pootler’s so far this year, but really I think this is the most special. Over a year ago, Sam Hammond Donald hit the massive career milestone of selling $1Million worth of Stampin’ Up! products, and so got to help design a stamp set. This stamp set launched in January, and today’s hop is dedicated to showcasing this one fabulous stamp set. Check out everyone else’s ideas using the links at the end of this post.

Hello Sentimental Swirls from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

One of the things that I think is really cool about this stamp set is that it coordinates with two fabulous punches; Flowers and Leaves, and the Strawberry Builder. PLUS, it is perfect for two-step stamping (one of my favourite techniques!) for quick colouring.

For this card, I coloured the flowers using Stampin’ Blends, in Misty Moonlight and So Saffron.
