Modern Christmas Card with a Musical Feel using Dashing Deer from Stampin' Up!

Today’s card was a super quick one to put together… don’t you just love a simple, pretty card when your in a hurry? There are 2 stamp sets at work here; Dashing Deer (it is Dashing Deer week after all!) and the fun Sheet Music Background Stamp.

I’m loving some background details at the moment; this one involved making a mask by die cutting  a large circle in a sheet of copier paper, and then stamping through the hole with the Sheet Music and Berry Burst Ink.

In the interests of keeping things simple; this card was then completed with a stamped and die cut dear, simple sentiment and a trio of Glitter Enamel Dots.

I hope you’re enjoying a week of Dashing Deer ideas. This weeks Stampin’ Inspiration email will have a fun exclusive video tutorial also featuring this fabulous bundle! Do subscribe to see it

Make It Monday banner

Oh yes, I am back with a whole week of fabulous projects using the gorgeous Dashing Deer bundle from Stampin’ Up! I am in love with these stamps, particularly that pretty deer stamp that I’ve used on this card today.

The Dashing Deer bundle contains the Dashing Deer stamp set and Detailed Deer Thinlits dies, AND if you use the special bundle item code (see the links at the bottom of this post) you can save 10% over buying them separately! Awesome!

Fun and Shimmery Christmas Card using Dashing Deer from Stampin' Up!

Like I said, I have a whole week of Dashing Deer project ideas this week, including a fabulous video exclusively for my email subscribers too! You can subscribe to my Stampin’ Inspiration emails right HERE!

This card, for all it features the Dashing Deer bundle, really is all about that shimmery background! I grabbed a couple of pots of the new Stampin’ Up! Shimmer paints a few weeks ago, but only managed to get around to testing them out this past weekend. I have to say, I am totally in LOVE with them, and have another card that uses them later in the week.

Video Tutorial

The background is really easy to put together, for all it looks complicated. Once I had embossed the piece of Blackberry Bliss card stock using the Swirls and Curls Embossing Folder, I used a sponge to gently add Shimmer Paint to the raised areas. I have to admit to being a little heavy handed with this…. but I like the sparkle, so Sorry, Not Sorry!

This card is completed with that pretty stamped deer, a Vellum scalloped circle and a Gold heat embossed sentiment also from Dashing Deer.

Christmas Countdown | Stampin’ Blends at Christmas!

Joy to the World Christmas Card using Alcohol Markers and Stampin' Up! products

StampinByHannah Christmas Countdown Stampin’ Blends at Christmas!

Christmas Countdown Video Tutorial Series StampinByHannah Stampin' Up! UK

Oh my goodness… Yes! It’s that time of the year already! The Start of my Annual Christmas Countdown.

Over the next 12 weeks I have 12 fun Festive projects for you each and every Friday…. and I thought I would start with a simple Christmas Card

Fun Christmas Card using Stampin' Blends Alcohol markers and Feathers and Frost from Stampin' Up!

I had lots of fun making this card, with the little details; the background stamping, the Stampin’ Blends coloring and the pop of Heat Embossing.

Stampin’ Blends are so fun! You need to be a little careful with your Stamping ink choice when using Stampin’ Blends, but really it just comes to ensuring you stamp using a Water-based ink for the images you wish to colour. What is so great is that ALL Stampin’ Up! Classic Ink’s are Water-Based…. so you can use your Stampin’ Blends alongside your Stampin’ Inks! How cool!

There are now TONS of Stampin’ Blends colours available with even more being added in this years Autumn Winter catalogue. They are super easy to colour with and come in colour pairs for perfect Blending. I am planning some more Blends videos very soon…. I’ve got myself a little bit addicted!

Christmas Countdown Simple Christmas Card using Feathers and Frost from Stampin' Up!

I cannot wait to share the rest of this years Christmas Countdown with you….

Make It Monday | Dashing Along Designer Series Paper…

Simple Christmas Card using Designer Series Paper and Timeless Tidings from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah Make It Monday | Dashing Along Designer Series Paper…

Make It Monday banner

So, today is Make It Monday, and I do have a video….. but I don’t actually have a card to make! I do have 3 cards to share with you though.

September sees a fun offer; Dashing Along Designer Series Paper is available for FREE when you place an order of £200. It is added automatically to your basket when you shop online. OR, you could also bag a pack of this stunning paper if you host a party which orders over the same amount.

Fun Christmas Card using Patterned Paper with Dashing Along DSP from Stampin' Up!

This pack of Designer Series Paper contains 12 sheets, 4 of each of 3 double sided designs. It is designed to coordinate with the Dashing Deer Stamp and Die Bundle…. but of course, I didn’t grab that one in my Autumn Winter order did I?! Silly me! So, instead, I thought I would share how easily this Designer Series Paper coordinates with some of the other Stamp Sets in the catalogue.

The red card uses the fun Timeless Tidings stamp set that matches the Timeless Tidings Card Kit (still need to have a go at putting those together!), while the card with the strips of Designer Series Paper uses the Feathers and Frost stamp set.

Merry Christmas card using Merry Die Cut from Stampin' Up!

This 3rd card, I think is my favourite, pairs the Dashing Along Designer Series Paper with the Merry Christmas To All Stamp and Die Bundle and a piece of that stunning Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper.

Pootlers Blop Hop | Welcome Autumn / Winter 2018!

Pretty Floral Christmas Card using First Frost from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah Pootlers Blop Hop | Welcome Autumn / Winter 2018!

Join the Number 1 Stampin' Up! Team in the UK

Welcome to the Pootler’s Blog Hop! This time we are celebrating the launch of the 2018 Autumn Winter Catalogue… usually I get a sneaky peak of everyone’s projects as I coordinate the hop, but not this time, so I cannot WAIT to join you in hopping around everyone’s creations!

First Frost Christmas Card for the Pootlers Team Blog hop using Stampin' Up! products

My absolute favourite suite in this years Autumn Winter Catalogue is the Frosted Floral Suite… it’s a pretty mix of watercolour effect stamps, gorgeous colours and shimmery Designer Series Paper! Yes… I did say that right; Shimmery Designer Series Paper! and Yes, you NEED to see it in real life. So. Pretty!

The flowers and leaves are stamped in Blackberry Bliss, Blushing Bride and Mint Macaron; which match perfectly with the colours in the Designer Series paper… or they did until I turned the paper over to use the back side, but I love the Neutral coloured paper against the hand stamped flowers.

Non-traditional Christmas Card using First Frost from Stampin' Up!

The sentiment is die cut using the coordinating die set and the card is completed with a splattering of Share What You Love Artisan Pearls

Check out what the rest of the Pootlers Blog Hop team have been making with the new Stampin’ Up! Autumn Winter Catalogue….

Peaceful Noel Christmas Card using Stampin’ Up! Products

Cute Christmas Card using Peaceful Noel from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah Peaceful Noel Hand-stamped Christmas Card using Stampin’ Up! Products

 

Sorry this blog post is a little later then usual…. I prioritised having dinner with my extended family last night over writing my blog! I know, it’s shocking… but it turns out that my 18 year old Sister in law makes a mean Lasagne! So, today’s card….

Get the Stampin' Up! Autumn Winter 2018 Catalogue

I sent a sample of this card out with each of my first batch of the new Stampin’ Up! Autumn Winter Catalogue. I do have a few left so if you haven’t got a catalogue yet, get one ordered ASAP using THIS form!

Want to know how I created those corner details? Check the video for all the info…

I am a little bit in love with this stamp set; Peaceful Noel is the perfect Christmas stamp set with lots of winter-y images that layer beautifully and have a hint of that watercolour effect I love so much!

The other thing I love about this card is the colour combination; Sahara Sand, Merry Merlot, and Shaded Spruce with a hint of copper. So pretty…. especially with that stunning Merry Merlot/Copper Reversible Ribbon

Go For Greece | Merry Christmas with Blended Seasons…

How to make a fun Coloured Christmas Card using Blended Seasons from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah Go For Greece Merry Christmas with Blended Seasons…

Go for Greece Blog Hop

I have been having a heap of fun with this month’s Exclusive stamp and die bundle: Colour Your Season… I shared a fun Facebook Live with you last week with heaps of ideas using it, and I have a free class download when you spend £45 in my shop this month using it too! The cards I’ve shared using the Blended Season’s stamp set, so far, have been pretty generic…. until now. Please let me share my first Christmas card of 2018!

Bright and fun Christmas Card using Colour Your Season bundle from Stampin' Up!

I shared a sneaky peak of this one on my Facebook Page, and got a few questions about how I coloured the images. It’s really very simple, and I will do a Video Tutorial soon… but basically it’s just an ink pad and a Blender Pen. Blender Pens are different from Blends Markers (I know, it’s confusing!) but a Blender Pen contains clear ink, and allows you to pick up ink from the ink of a ink pads and colour with it (or spread Watercolour Pencil!)… they are an absolute staple in my craft room…

Merry Christmas Card using Blended Seasons from Stampin' Up!

The trick is to be fairly quick, and not rub over the same spot of card stock too much as Blender Pens have a nasty habit of ‘piling’ card stock… and that’s not a pretty look!

The rest of the card came together pretty quickly, with some die cuts from the coordinating Stitched Seasons Framelits, and a Gold Faceted Gem to finish

Christmas Countdown Video Tutorial Series StampinByHannah Stampin' Up! UK

Oh my goodness…. we are at Week 12 of this years Christmas Countdown! We are however, going out with a BANG  (quite literally!)

I do appologise for the late-ness of this week’s Christmas Countdown. I had started to write it on Wednesday, but was called into the day job at very very short notice and didn’t get chance to get my post finished. But, I am up (not very) early this morning and I will Live Blog the rest!

Square Crackes Video Tutorial using Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!

Yes…. we have CRACKERS! These are super quick and simple to make… and they only use a piece of Designer Series Paper that 6 x 5-1/2″ (15 x 13 cm), so you can get 4 out of a single piece of 12 x 12″ Designer Series Paper.

Measurements:

Designer Series Paper –  6 x 5-1/2″ (15 x 13 cm)

Score on the long side at; 1, 1-1/2, 2, 4, 4-1/2, and 5″ (2.5, 3.5, 4.5, 10.5, 11.5 and 12.5 cm)

Score on the short side at 1-1/4, 2-1/2, 3-3/4 and 5″ (3, 6, 9, and 12 cm)

The trick to make the ends of the crackers is all in the use of the Envelope Punch Board! Check the video for how it works…

Simply Sketched Saturday Colour Challenge Christmas Card using Cheers to the Year from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah Simply Sketched Saturday Colour Challenge

Stampin' Up! Sketch Challenge

Man, I have missed blog hopping with this group of lovely ladies! This month’s Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge blog hop is bitter sweet, not only is it the last one of 2017, its also the last time we are hopping under this name (although, we will be back in the new year even bigger and better!).

Simply Sketched Saturday Stampin' Up! Blog Hop Christmas Card Challenge

The lovely Dee set this colour challenge, and while I LOVE a good challenge, this scared the pants off me! I mean, seriously, I had a good few weeks of sitting and looking at these two colours before ANYTHING came to mind.

Simply Sketched Saturday Colour Challenge Christmas Card using Cheers to the Year from Stampin' Up!Fresh Fig is one of my favourite Stampin’ Up! colours, and I couldn’t help but make it the main focus of this card. The Designer Series Paper here is Year of Cheer, which comes in white with metallic foiling. While I do LOVE the look if it plain, I have taken a sponge brayer to it here and coloured in in Fresh Fig. This is one of my most used techniques at the moment, colouring Designer Series Paper to create totally custom projects!

The sentiment is stamped in Island Indigo using the Cheers to the Year stamp set, which is then die cut using the Layering Circles framelits.

Simply Sketched Saturday Colour Challenge Christmas Card using Cheers to the Year from Stampin' Up!To pick up on the Gold foiling from the Designer Series Paper I also die cut a scalloped circle from Gold Foil Paper as a matt for the sentiment.

The card is completed with a ribbon bow in Island Indigo Ombre Ribbon.
