Guess what…. I actually managed to film a video for you this week! I grabbed a couple of hours in my craft room last weekend, and this is the result. I hope you enjoy!
This card uses the fabulous Merriest Moment Hybrid Embossing Folder bundle, which I have been having so much fun playing with. It is super easy to create some stunning creations, with detailed embossing and fun die cuts using this one and the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss machine.
I hope you enjoy the video, please do subscribe to my YouTube channel to make sure you don’t miss my next one!
This pretty floral, Christmas suite is full of lovely images that I can see you using in the spring too. The full collection bundle includes not only the fabulous Christmas Rose stamp set and coordinating dies, but also the matching Designer Series Paper, Gold ribbon and shimmery enamel dots, as well as a stunning, exclusive bracelet too!
This collection is a While Stocks Last opportunity, but can be included in a Stampin’ Up! Starter Kit to make it the gift that keeps on giving!
There is so much product in this collection! But, not only can you buy the collection in full, but also the individual items are available too (unlike some of the recent Product Medleys) so you could just grab the Designer Series Paper or the Stamp Set.
Check out these fun samples from Stampin’ Up! for some inspiration and then check out (and shop) the full collection
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 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.
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
Hey folks! One last Christmas card from me today (well, until September when the new Christmas Catalogue launches anyway!), and I’ve been playing with Dashing Deer again!
This card is all about the layers, with an embossed panel, Stitched nested Labels and that super sparkly Dashing Deer!
The deer was die cut from Crumb Cake card stock, and then painted with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint to create this fun sparkly Dashing Deer. This paint dries super quickly; it was dry by the time I’d adhered the rest of the layers together!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this week of Christmas cards in the middle of July! and maybe inspired you to make a start on this years cards early
Hey folks! So, after a couple of blog posts of other bits and pieces, I’m back with another Christmas in July card! I LOVE the First Frost stamp set, and although it’s in with the Christmas stamps in the catalogue I totally use it all year around. Today I do have a Christmas Card using it, but how pretty would this be for a Birthday, or Just Because?
I always prefer less traditional colours at Christmas. I mean, I don’t mind Red and Green, but I’m always pulled more towards cooler colours; blues and silver. So, the colours here are Coastal Cabana, Pretty Peacock, Granny Apply Green and Flirty Flamingo.
The sentiment is taken from another Stamp set; Merry Christmas to All and the coordinating Merry Christmas Dies.
The Merry is die cut from Silver Foil Paper, and then the stamp is in Pretty Peacock.
Pretty Peacock is one of this years Brand New In Colours, and I am in LOVE with it! I’ve re-opened sign ups for my 2019-2021 In Colour Club, but will close it again on Sunday night, CLICK HERE to find out more and join in!
Hey folks! So it’s day 2 of this years Christmas in July and the card I’m sharing today is one of my favourite makes in AGES and it uses the Merry Christmas to all stamp set!
There are only 2 stamps at work here; the sentiment and that pretty label stamp. The background was created by just repeat stamping the sentiment over and over down the card in Gray Granite ink. You could totally use your Stamparatus for this, but I’ve hand stamped it. Hand stamping repeatedly like this isn’t difficult, but it can take some time, particularly if your trying to make it all perfect. I wasn’t aiming for perfection however, as I prefer the slightly mess, bit wonky, imperfect look!
The sentiment itself is stamped on a scrap of Very Vanilla card stock in Memento Black ink, and then the label stamp added in Cherry Cobbler. This stamp set pairs with the Merry Christmas dies, and this label has a perfectly matching die.
To help make the sentiment really pop I’ve added a couple of layers behind it; a vellum Stitched Nested Label and a piece of the Very Vanilla Lace Trim.
Hey folks! I cannot believe that it’s July already, this year is going so fast that I can already see Christmas around the corner, so I thought I would dedicate (most of) a week to Christmas! I mean, it’s never to early to start on this years home made Christmas cards right?
The Christmas stamp sets are kind of hidden in this years Annual catalogue, but you can find them on pages 68-71. Which doesn’t seem like very much, but these 5 stamp sets pack a punch! That, and the Christmas catalogue is just around the corner. It launches in August for Demonstrators, and September for customers. So, if you want a sneaky peak, please do consider joining Stampin’ Up! with me, particularly this month when we’ve got the fabulous Extra Extra promotion going on too!
The Dashing Deer stamp set has been in the catalogue for a little bit now, and I still love it. I mean, what is not to love about that deer stamp… and the fact that it has a coordinating die too!
I’ve tried to use some non-festive items on this weeks cards, so this card also uses the Country Floral 3D embossing folder too. It adds an awesome dimension to that circle piece without being too in your face.
This card has a bit of a twist on the traditional red and green Christmas. I’ve used Shaded Spruce, which I always think is very festive, but paired it with Lovely Lipstick, which is more of a pink that a red really. I think it works really rather well!
This card is finished with the sentiment heat embossed in silver. Keeping things fairly simply for the first day of Christmas in July! Check back tomorrow for another festive card creation!
This fortnights Inspire.Create.Challenge is a pretty colour combination inspired by the oh so popular Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper from this years Stampin’ Up! Autumn Winter Catalogue. Now, be warned that this paper is While Stocks Last because it has been SO popular. So run, don’t walk to the Online store to grab yours today!
Saying that, I haven’t used the Joyous Noel suite at all for today’s card, instead I have opted for the fabulously fun Dashing Deer instead. This pretty deer stamp is winning for me at the moment, I just cannot get enough of it! Here it’s been stamped in Merry Merlot and die cut using the coordinating Detailed Deer thinlits.
The deer is layered over some copper heat embossed stamping and a piece of the copper trim, oh and some splatter in shaded spruce too! You could add even more to this card, with sequins, or rhinestones, or those stunning frosted Epoxy dots, however I chose to keep things simple and make a clean and simple (ish) card for this weeks Inspire. Create.Challenge.
Check out the other Design Team members colour creations over on the Inspire.Create.Challenge blog and enter your own projects too. Projects can be added from a vareity of places including your own blogs, public galleries, Pinterest, or even a public Facebook Post. We cannot wait to see them!
StampinByHannah Merry Christmas with Snow is Glistening from Stampin’ Up!
This month Stampin’ Up! have released 2 fabulous stamp sets with a coordinating set of dies to celebrate the lead up to Christmas. The Snowflake Showcase Suite is a fabulous mix of Festive Christmas and all year round pretty images that you can use year after year.
Today’s card is a bit of a CASE (copy and selectively edit) of a card by the ever talented Kristina Werner. Her card didn’t use Stampin’ Up! products, but I immediately saw the fabulous Snow is Glistening Stamp set in her creation, and just HAD to have a go
Usually green is not my favourite, but the simple combination of Mossy Meadow, Gold and White made my heart sing. The tree from Snow is Glistening was stamped into a piece of Watercolour Paper using Versamark. I use the Stamparatus when stamping in Watercolour Paper because the paper is textured it can sometimes take a few applications of ink to get a well defined image. The tree was then heat embossed with Gold embossing powder.
The watercolour paper then took several layers of Mossy Meadow ink mixed with water, with more ink added at the corners to leave the centre a little lighter. Once this was dry, I inked the edges of the watercolour paper with more Versamark and added Gold embossing powder for a fun boarder.
The card is finished with a heat embossed sentiment in Vellum, and a layer of Whisper White between the Watercolour Paper and the Mossy Meadow Card Base
StampinByHannah Bright and Fun Snowflake Christmas Card using Snowflake Showcase from Stampin’ Up!
This month Stampin’ Up! have released 2 fabulous stamp sets and a coordinating set of dies, along with a pack of fun embellishments. Unfortunately the gorgeous White Velvet paper has already disappeared from the store, but I would take this as an indication of the popularity of these fabulous goodies and get them quickly!
This bright Christmas card uses the pretty Velvet paper on the large die cut snowflake, however I’m sure it would look just as pretty using Thick Whisper White instead. This die cut looks really intricate, but it still cuts beautifully. I did have to poke out a fair number of bits, and I don’t know about you, but I never really mind doing that. Although you could grab the Big Shot Die Brush if you were going to cut loads of them.
The sentiment is taken from the coordinating Happiness Surrounds stamp set, and its heat embossed in Silver onto a die cut piece of Bermuda Bay card stock.
This card is finished with a heap of sparkly splatter using the fabulous Shimmer Paints. Do check the shopping list below for all the items used on this card.
