As you may know, I set the challenges for Inspire.Create, and this time I thought I would be really mean and set a completely blank challenge! I cannot WAIT to see what you guys make for this one too… don’t forget to check out  the Inspire.Create blog to see the fabulous Design Team’s work and enter your own creations.

Inspire.Create.Challenge Anything Goes Sketch Challenge Happy Birthday Card using Rooted in Nature from Stampin' Up!

I had a fun day a few weekends ago (before my craft room was packed up ready for the Big Move!) making a bunch of birthday cards, and this just sort of happened! Stampin’ Up! have started a demonstrator campaign for Simple Stamping this month, and I am attempting to embrace this (because I am rubbish at it!). So, this card uses minimal products, and so is super easy for you to replicate!

In actual fact it uses 2 stamp sets; but only because the Rooted in Nature stamp set doesn’t have a birthday sentiment. So I grabbed one of the Hostess Exclusive stamp sets, Hand Delivered, for the sentiment. But other than that its one ink, 2 colours of card stock and 1 ribbon.

Manly Happy Birthday Card using Rooted in Nature from Stampin' Up!

This card would work for a girl birthday or a boy one! Although I suppose that I’ve girl-ed this one up by adding a heap of Shimmer Paint on those leaves and a pretty Frosted Epoxy Droplets

Inspire.Create.Challenge 031 | Festive Colour Challenge

Inspire.Create.Challenge Dashing Deer Colour Challenge Card

StampinByHannah Inspire.Create.Challenge 031 Festive Colour Challenge

Inspire.Create.Challenge Stampin' Up! Cardmaking Challenge

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!

Clean and Simple Handmade Christmas Card using Dashing Deer from Stampin' Up!

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.

Inspire.Create.Challenge Dashing Deer Colour Challenge Card

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!

Inspire.Create.Challenge 029 | Thankful Card

StampinByHannah Inspire.Create.Challenge 029 Thankful Card

inspire.create.challenge thankful

Today’s blog post features a bit of a sneaky peak of some new products that launch tomorrow! Stampin’ Up! are releasing 2 fun stamp sets and a coordinating set of dies, a pack of embellishments and some unusual papers exclusively in November. I’ll have all the details on the blog tomorrow… but for now here is a sneaky peak of Happiness Surrounds

This card uses the Happiness Surrounds Stamp Set and Snowfall thinlits. I am loving layering stamped images at the moment and here there are stamps layered, with die cuts and then some heat embossing to finish.

The sentiment isn’t from these exclusive stamp sets, its taken from one of my old favourites; Thankful Thoughts.

I think that this colour combination is particularly fun too…

I have a whole lot to be Thankful for at the moment… do check out my post from Monday if you’re not up to speed with what has been going on in my world recently! Thanks to everyone who has left such lovely comments on that post… I had no idea so many people read my little blog!

Fun Christmas Card using Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!

I decided to keep things simple this week, and just let the Designer Series Paper do all the talking. This fun print is from the Under the Mistletoe Paper pack, which you might have missed if your looking in the Autumn Winter catalogue because its in the Christmas section of the Annual one instead.

Quick and Easy Christmas Card using fun Patterned Paper from Stampin' Up!

The sentiment is in the Autumn Winter catalogue, its taken from Timeless Tidings, which I am getting heaps of use out of, although it is designed to go with the Timeless Tidings kit (which I still haven’t got round to making up yet!).

So, short and sweet today, do go and check out the other creations from the Design Team over at the Inspire.Create.Challenge blog… they have made some stunning projects this week.

Fabulously Modern Floral Friendship Card using Abstract Impressions from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah Inspire.Create.Challenge 028 Abstract Impressions Friendship Card

Inspire.Create.Challenge 028 Stampin' Up! Colour Combination

I have to say I LOVE setting the challenges for Inspire.Create…. but even I thought this one was mean! However, the girls have made some GORGEOUS projects with what could be a tricky colour combination. Do check out the Inspire.Create blog to see all the Design Team creations and to enter your own!

How to create a fun floral Friend card using Stampin' Up! products

After several weeks of no crafting at all thanks to my Crafty Mojo disappearing, this colour combination was just what I needed to get me back into my craft room.

The background is embossed with one of my favourite embossing folders; Layered Leaves. This embossing folder makes for the most perfect background to floral cards, it’s subtle, and works in a whole heap of colours too! I LOVE it!

There's So Much to Love About You Card using Abstract Impressions from Stampin' Up!

The stamped flowers are stamped in Calypso Coral stamped over Crushed Curry, and finished with Pear Pizzazz leaves. To complete the card I added a trio of die cut flowers using the coordinating Springtime Impressions dies along with a trio of Rhinestones.

Inspire.Create.Challenge Merry Christmas To All Card using Stampin' Up! products

StampinByHannah Inspire.Create.Challenge #026 | Merry Christmas To All

Inspire.Create.Challenge 026 Sketch Challenge using Stampin' up! products

I have told you all before how much I LOVE a sketch challenge… and I cannot wait to see what the rest of the Design Team do with this one! I have been pondering on it for a while; trying to work out what I was going to do with that Heart image… in the end I’ve chosen to change it to a circle and die cut it out.

How to make a fun Christmas Card using Merry Christmas to All from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

I have been playing around with Designer Series Paper a fair bit recently, I made THIS card for my Brother in Law last week and used a piece of Designer Series Paper to cover the entire front of the card. I liked the effect so much I thought I would do the same here with this stunning Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper.

The Merry Christmas sentiment is taken from the new Merry Christmas To All Stamp and die bundle. How perfect is that glitter-y die cut?! To adhere it to the card, I added some Multi-purpose Adhesive Sheet to the back of the Glimmer Paper before it was die cut, the adhered it over the top of the die cut circle. To stop it sticky were I didn’t want it to, I covered uncovered adhesive with powder from my Embossing Buddy.

The sentiment is completed with the Christmas heat embossed in White onto a scrap of Tranquil Tide card stock.

Inspire.Create.Challenge #023 | Congratulations Twinkle Twinkle

How to use Designer Series Paper in your card making featuring Twinkle Twinkle from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah Inspire.Create.Challenge #023 Congratulations Twinkle Twinkle

Inspire.Create.Challenge Stampin' Up! Sketch Challenge number 23

Hello! Oh my goodness, I feel like these challenges are coming around awfully quickly at the moment! I’m sure it’s because we’ve changed how we organise them slightly, and so I only made my challenge card for challenge 22 last week… but nothing has changed for you so really that is completely irrelevant! I do hope you enjoy our challenges, do pop over to the Inspire.Create blog and see the other members of the Design Team’s creations!

Blue Congratulations Card with stars using Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!

This sketch totally lends itself to a card that uses big pieces of Designer Series Paper! I love this type of card as they come together really quickly but look fabulous too. My card for today features the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper that is predominately designed for baby cards, and so that is what I have made today pairing it with the coordinating stamp set; Little Twinkle. However, this paper is full of generic patterns that I can see being put to a heap of uses plus it’s heavy on the Night of Navy too so it’s perfect for guy cards!

The hardest bit of this card was making sure the measurements were right. First I cut the piece of Whisper White as a mat for the Designer Series Paper, then I worked out how big each piece of Designer Series Paper needed to be based on that measurement.

Baby boy congratulations card using Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!

Measurement:

Card base: Night of Navy; 29.7 x 10.5 cm, scored on the long side at 14.85 cm

Whisper White; 9.5 x 13.8 cm

4 pieces of Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper; 4.5 x 6.65 cm

Whisper White; 10.5 x 2.5 cm

Inspire.Create.Challenge 021 | Fun Children’s Card using Swirly Bird

Fun card for a little boy using Swirly Bird from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah Inspire.Create.Challenge 021 Fun Children’s Card using Swirly Bird

Inspire.Create.Challenge Theme Challenge Kids Cards

This week’s Inspire.Create.Challenge was a tricky one of me! I don’t make many cards for kids…. seeing as I don’t have any of my own… you wouldn’t think I actually set the challenges for Inspire.Create.Challenge would you?!

Children's Sail boat card using Swirly Bird from Stampin' Up!

A few months ago the lovely Sarah-Jane from the Inspire.Create team gave me THIS pretty card, it’s been sitting on my card display ever since…. and this weekend I decided that the idea would be perfect for a kids card!

The sail boat comes from the Swirly Bird stamp set. I’ve stamped it here in Lemon Lime Twist, night of Navy and Grey Granite (stamped off once)… and fussy cut it before adhering it to the Whisper White square die cut using the Layering Squares Framelits. The scalloped Lemon Lime Twist Square uses the same set of dies.

Kids card using Swirly Bird from Stampin' Up!

The background uses 3 die cuts of Night of Navy using the coordinating Swirly Scribbles dies… to adhere them to the card base I did add some Multi-Purpose Adhesive sheet to the back of the card stock before die cutting, but you could use liquid glue to get the same effect.

Don’t forget to check out the other Kid’s Card inspiration over at Inspire.Create.Challenge, and create your own and share it with us there too!

Inspire.Create.Challenges Sketch Challenge Tree Thank You Card using Nature's Poem Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!

Ok, so I have a confession… this is the second card I made for this challenge (I plan to share the other one with you on Saturday!)… but this one is my favourite! This happens to me often, when I make a card for an occasion, go away, fall out of love with it and make something else! I’m sure I’m not the only person this happens to!

I do have a bit of an obsession with the Rooted in Nature bundle…. but I’m not apologising for sharing it with you! This bundle HAS to be one of my top picks from the new Stampin’ Up! 2018 Annual Catalogue!

Thank you card using Rooted in Nature from Stampin' Up!

This large tree in particular is one of my favourite pieces, along with it’s coordinating die! I’ve kept the colour combination simple; with Sahara Sand, Tranquil Tide and Whisper White.

The card is finished with a bow in Crumb Cake Nature’s Twine

Stampin' Up! In Colours 2018-2020 Lovely Lipstick Pineapple Punch Grapefruit Grove Call me Clover Blueberry Bushel

This week I am sharing a whole weeks worth of inspiration featuring the new Stampin’ Up! 2018-2020 In Colours… which happens to tie in quite nicely to this weeks Inspire.Create.Challenges Colour Challenge…

Inspire.Create.Challenges In Colour Challenge using Stampin' Up! colours

One of my most favourite times in the Stampin’ Up! calendar is the release of the new In-Colours…. and this year certainly did not disappoint! These 5 fun, bright colours are going to be awesome to use during the summer, and I can see some fabulous Christmas crafting coming with Call Me Clover too!

Today’s project is a fairly simple one… borne from the need to update my Office decor! I’ve had this frame in my craft room for a couple of years, I shared the original creation HERE…. but it was starting to look tired… and I could not pass up the chance to use the Exclusive Statement of the Heart stamp before it retires Tomorrow! The frame is THIS one from IKEA (I LOVE IKEA… don’t you?!)

Stampin' Up! Statement of the Heart Craft Room Home Decor Frame using Share What You Love Designer Series Paper

Today is Grapefruit Grove day in my week long celebration of all things ‘In Colour’ and I just HAD to use this piece of the Share What You Love Designer Series Paper and the Statement of the Heart Stamp Set from the Share What You Love Bundles, along with some of the pieces from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit, Pearlised Doilies and a hint of Vellum too!

This week I am sharing a daily PDF download of each project with my Email subscribers, feel free to subscribe HERE.

Do pop over to Inspire.Create.Challenges to see the work of the fabulous other members of the Design Team have made with these fun In-Colours…
