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! Find out more and sign up HERE!
This fun fold, Double Fronted Card is super easy to make and is a lovely way to Jazz up a special card.
Highland Heather Card Base: 21 x 14.85 cm, scored at 10.5 cm. This is a standard sized card using A4 card stock, then cut 5 cm off one side
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.
Do pop over to my Facebook Page, and be sure to Like it so you don’t miss my weekly Facebook Live’s (every Sunday at 11AM)
Oh yes, it’s Sunday, and that only means on thing here at StampinByHannah…. it’s Facebook Live Day!
This week I thought I would take the opportunity to recap this year’s Sale-a-bration offers… and make 3 cards using the Hello Cupcake Stamp set.
This first card was my attempt at #simplestamping. I think this card would make a great quick make for that neighbours birthday you’ve forgotten, or change the sentiment for a fun Thank you or Just because card for your milkman or UPS man!
The second card was a slightly stepped up version of that cute note card. I swapped the card base for Mint Macaron Card Stock and added a layer of Very Vanilla. If you want to know my card measurements, I almost always us the same, you can find the over on my Standard Card Measurements Page.
I mentioned in the video there are 3 parts to Sale-a-bration:
Shop – Ever time you spend £45 (on anything on the Stampin’ Up! website) between now and the end of March, you earn a Sale-a-bration credits which you can swap in for fun Stamp Sets like the cute Hello Cupcake Set I used today. There are 2 items that require 2 credits, or a £90 spend at the back of the Sale-a-bration booklet
Host – Earn extra Stampin’ Rewards when you spend over £200 or host a party that spends over the same amount
Join – Become a part of Stampin’ Up!, choose £170 worth of goodies and pay just £99 (or spend an extra £26 and get the GORGEOUS Craft and Carry Tote too!) and then get at least 20% discount on all purchases, take part in team events (like yesterday’s Blog Hop) or just be a happy shopper!
The 3rd card is further stepped up, with a fussy cut cupcake and embossed circle… but it’s not quite as stepped up and my original design which also has Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper and a heat embossed sentiment.
Before I go, I just want to quickly remind you that booking for my January Craft Class closes tomorrow night at 10PM! You can find all the information and book your place HERE!
I would LOVE you to join me for my next Facebook Live which is next Sunday at 11AM… click over to Like my Facebook Page so you don’t miss it!
I had SO much fun with the Brand New Butterfly Gala stamp and punch bundle on this mornings Facebook Live! I do a Facebook Live every Sunday… this week was a little rushed as I was also in the middle of icing a cake and prepping for a Sunday Roast for 10 people… but I didn’t want to miss my first Facebook Live of 2019!
This week I have been so inspired by the Butterfly Gala stamp set, particularly because it has a fabulous matching punch!
The first card I made this was was this simply stamped Thank You card, CASE’d from THIS CARD made by my lovely friend Verity! Verity made this card using Black card stock and ink, but I have to say I’m a much bigger fan of something a little softer (most of the time) and so swapped the Basic Black for Night of Navy. Check out the video for how I coloured those butterflies!
Butterfly Gala is part of the Gingham Gala suite in the new Stampin’ Up! Spring Summer Catalogue. I have a fun Launch Party taking place next weekend (with Make and Takes that I will share next week!), and a fun Card Class using the suite on the 22nd January too! I would LOVE to see you at my 2019 events
The second card today was inspired by my other friend Jill, who made THIS CARD back in December. I loved the look of the Butterflies stacked on top of each other on Jill’s card, and just had to give it a StampinByHannah twist. Here the 6 butterflies are stamped Tone on Tone in 3 colours; Blushing Bride, So Saffron and Balmy Blue. I really love this soft look, not something that would be in my usual style!
