I know, I’ve already shared one blog post with you today… but I didn’t want to start the new week without sharing this week’s Facebook Live video and cards! There are heaps of lovely packs of Designer Series Paper in the new Stampin’ Up! annual catalogue, but some of them have a few special features. This particular pack; Beauty of the Earth, has two sheets that are perfect for super speedy cards!
These cards are all super simple and quick to put together, do check out the video to see all 6.
Before I go, I just want to remind you about my In Colour Club; Registration closes on the 21st May, and I will be emailing everyone on the 22nd. I can’t wait!
This week’s Facebook Live video was so much fun! I have been loving playing with the Sweet Strawberry stamp set for a while, and it was so lovely to be able to share it with you. We made two cards, both totally different to each other in style, but both easy enough to put together.
This first card uses the Sweet Strawberry stamp set along with the coordinating punch. I love a bundle, they are a super easy way to make sure you have products that work together, but also you get to save 10% over ordering them as two separate items!
The Designer Series Paper on this card measures 9 x 8 cm, and is the new Brights Colour Family Designer Series Paper. I love the patterns this year, simple but stunning and oh so handy to have in your stash. I mentioned in the Facebook Live that I have a page here on the blog that lists all my card measurements; you can find that HERE.
Sweet Strawberry Facebook Live Catch Up!
The second card uses a fun technique that I only spotted on the Stampin’ Up! Instagram account earlier on Thursday. But it was so simple that I couldn’t pass the opportunity to give it a go! Check out the video to see how simple it was to make this card.
Do pop over to my Facebook Page, and give it a like to make sure you don’t miss this week’s Facebook Live video. I am trying to go Live every Thursday at 19:30 (UK time), but you can always catch the replay either on Facebook or YouTube.
Hello folks! So, I promised I would get this video up on my blog, and thanks to two events over the weekend (InspireINK and Inspire.create.challenge) I knew it wouldn’t happen until today. I hope that’s ok though, better later than never! Anyway, I’ve started to do my weekly Facebook Live’s again on a Thursday evening, at about 19:30, and last week I shared 3 ways to use the fabulous Brushed Blooms stamp and die bundle and the True Love Designer Series Paper. Both of these can be found in the January-June mini catalogue. However both will retire at the end of June.
I love a black and white patterned paper, just something so clean about it, and paired with a single bright colour (Like Magenta Madness) it really pops. The 2020-2022 In Colours work fabulously with the True Love papers, because they are so bright, a real contrast.
The second card was a bit of a surprise to me. I usually avoid fussy cutting, but fussy cutting Designer Series Paper is so much easier than cutting cardstock that actually, I might do it more often! This card was also inspired by my friend Stacy Marsh and THIS card which she shared a few weeks ago.
One of the things I really love about the True Love Designer Series paper is the florals, can you imagine this print coloured with Blends. It would be lovely (side note; I do need to do that at some point…. soon!)
I am really enjoying getting back into my Facebook Lives, and dabbling in blogging again. Although, I am probably most active though over on Instagram. So, do pop over there and search for ‘StampinByHannah’ to see both crafting bits and some general life stuff too!
Thanks so much for stopping by StampinByHannah today and I hope to see you on Thursday evening at 19:30 over on my Facebook page!
Hey folks, this week’s Facebook Live we made 2 quick cards using 2 stamp sets that you currently get for FREE when you join Stampin’ Up! The Stampin’ Up! Get and Go Starter kit is a great way to not only get 20% discount on your future purchases but to also kick start some fun crafty sessions with you friends!
The Stampin’ Up! Starter kit costs £99, but includes £130 worth of crafty goodies of your choice, 2 fun stamp sets, 2 sets of card kits to craft with your friends and a pack of Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
I’ve got a few more samples using both Queen Anne’s Lace and So Much Love to share with you over the course of the month, but for now, here are the two cards we made last night…
Also, there are still a few places left on this month’s Christmas Gleaming Kit Class. Find out all the info and book your place HERE!
Hello!Well, I’ve got myself a bit behind again haven’t I! So, I’ve got a few blog posts coming out to you over the next week to catch up….
The first is this fun Facebook Live replay, making a set of quick and easy notecards featuring Tasteful Touches. I am loving this stamp set, after having a bit of a play with it at a recent virtual retreat.
There are 3 quick and easy cards here, all using ink blending (a technique I can’t get enough of right now!), and then I thought it would be nice to package them into a notecard set. Stampin’ Up! make these fabulous acetate boxes that are perfectly sized to hold up to about 6 cards and envelopes. They are great for a quick gift, or even if you were to sell bundles of cards at craft fairs.
Here, to jazz the box up a little, I’ve added a band of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper and added a die cut and some stamping.
Quick and Easy Notecards…
You can check out all the cards below, but here is the Facebook Live Replay;
Hey folks! I am super excited to be back doing some Facebook Lives! I asked on Facebook a few weeks ago about whether you’d prefer to see regular videos on YouTube or random Facebook Lives, and most people seemed to want more Lives. So, I got a bit of time this morning while James took Niamh for her first set of vaccinations (which I really didn’t want to go to!), and thought I’d jump on and share this pretty Good Morning Magnolia Thank You card with you.
I’m not going to say too much about how this card came together, as you can see that on the Facebook Live video.
But I did want to link to some information about the offers I mentioned in the video
This week’s Facebook Live is a bit of a waffle-y one… I’ll warn you from the get go! But I’m super happy with the card, so I hope that you enjoy!
I’ve got a few things going on at the moment; 2 fabulous card classes in March and my Stash Builder Club too… so before we jump to the video I thought I would give you a quick over-view
March Card Class using Needlepoint Nook launches tomorrow! So check back to the blog for that!
My March Facebook Live Online Card Class launched earlier in the week. I am super excited about this one, I have 5 fun cards already made using the Painted Seasons Bundle from the Sale-a-bration 2nd Release that I cannot wait to share with you. There are 2 options for this class; either Class only, or class and cardstock pack. Check out THIS blog post for all the information!
Stash Builder Club… I LOVE this club. I did it a couple of years ago, and was reminded about it yesterday! It’s a monthly club that lasts 6 months, and each month you get to choose £25 worth of Stampin’ Up! goodies PLUS one of those months you also get to spend the Stampin’ Rewards and get at least £15 worth of goodies for FREE!

Very Vanilla: 20.5 x 14.3 cm, scored at 10.25 cm (or just folded in half!)
Short and sweet blog post this week… but I thought I would quickly write it before James gets himself out of bed!
After a month of being a bit hit and miss with my Facebook lives Thanks to a cold that just wouldn’t leave, I am back this week to share the Sale-a-bration 2nd release goodies and some exciting products coming in March!
Launched last week there are a further 3 fabulous goodies to earn for FREE when you shop during Sale-a-bration! I’ve used 2 of them on this weeks Facebook Live Card…
I’ve used 2 of them on this weeks Facebook Live Card…
The Painted Season’s Bundle is available for FREE when you spend £90 between now and the end of March (while stocks last) and includes a gorgeous stamp set and a pack of coordinating Designer Series Paper. Designed to take you through a full 12 months of occasions there are no sentiments, but I’ve paired it with the fun Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set from the Spring Summer catalogue.
This Designer Series Paper is so pretty, it has 4 seasonal prints on one side and 4 generic patterns on the other and all feature a lovely watercolour wash effect too.
This card also features the lovely new Country Floral Embossing Folder (Free with a £45 order during Sale-a-bration). This folder is one of those thicker ones, so if gives you a whole heap of dimension and works so well with a pretty floral like this.
I also mentioned in this week’s Live about some new products coming in March that coordinate with some of the current Sale-a-bration goodies! Coming on 1st March there are 4 sets of dies, a new stamp set, and a punch! I’ll be sharing them properly once you can get your hands on them, however you can grab them now by adding them to a Stampin’ Up! Starter Kit right now!
Don’t forget to pop over to my Facebook Page, and like it so you don’t miss my Live next week.
I am in love with the cute Hey Love stamp set, and these adorable Treat bags which Stampin’ Up! have featured as a You Can Make It in the Spring Summer Catalogue. I love these You Can Make It ideas; quick and easy makes complete with a shopping list! Awesome! You can find them in each catalogue, or HERE in my Stampin’ Up! webstore
The shopping list for these cute bags can be found at the bottom of this post, but I have also added a few extra goodies that I used to make these my own.
The cute Gorilla (now known as Paul!) is really easy to colour with Stampin’ Blends. Actually, there are only two colours of Blends pens used on this treat bags; Light Smoky Slate and Light Flirty Flamingo. To add dimension each Paul is outlined first with the Smoky Slate, then coloured in with the same pen. To add more dimension I also added an extra layer of colour to areas that would be in shadow.
Before I go, I do just want to remind you of that you only have 7 days left to book your place on this months Craft Class! This month we are making a whole stack of cards using the pretty Flowing Fountain stamp set, and there are 3 different kit options as well as the usual In Person or Online! Book your place HERE!
Hello! well… I usually post these blog posts slightly earlier in the day, but I’ve been busy prepping for my first Card Class of 2019 on Tuesday, filming a couple of tutorials and taking a bunch of pictures for upcoming blog posts… so things have been a little delayed today.
It’s Sunday, Facebook Live day here at StampinByHannah, and this week I thought I would give you some of my Cling Mount Stamp Top Tips!
Stampin’ Up! changed the formulation of the stickers that go on the backs of your red rubber stamps with the launch of the Spring Summer catalogue. These new Cling stamps are SUPER sticky, so there is NO chance that your going to have that awful moment where your freshly inked stamp falls off the block onto your 99% completed project ever again.
Cling Mount Top Tips
Get those stickers on your Stamps! I NEVER used the clear mount stickers (because they just didn’t work!) but these are ace
Once you’ve got your sticker on the stamp, its not coming back off, so use the outside edges of the stamp to ensure perfect alignment of the sticker and the stamp
New Cling stickers are SUPER sticky; I find that removing some of the inital stickiness by putting the stamp on and off of your trousers / top / cardigan can be useful
Add a little bit of Washi Tape to one end of your new Cling stickers to help you get your stamps back off your blocks. Please do not that the stickers are so sticky that you are at risk of ripping your stamps when taking them off of blocks or out of the case
Use the flat end of your Take Your Pick tool to get your stamps off your block
Have lots of fun using them!
I only made one card on this morning’s Facebook Live, but I do think it was a good one…
Flowing Fountain is one of those stamp set in the catalogue that is so easily missed, which is such a shame because it’s so pretty. I’ve actually taken inspiration from the catalogue for this card, as it uses the same technique as used by Stampin’ Up!
You can find all the card measurements over on my Standard Card Measurements page.
