Card ideas using Abstract Beauty from Stampin’ Up!

Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah this evening. Now, I don’t usually blog this late in the day, but this week’ YouTube video was pre-recorded rather than Live because today is my daughter’s 3rd birthday, and so I thought I would set the blog post to go live at the same time.

Recently I’ve been having heaps of fun with the Abstract Beauty Suite from the January-June Mini catalogue. I am in LOVE with the Designer Series Paper! I shared a card using this suite over the weekend for Inspire.Create and wanted to re-make it… so I did!

I kept the diagonal theme with the other two cards I made this week. One using more of that fabulous paper, and one without.

This card also uses the Beautiful Shapes dies to cut out the Designer Series Paper and Basic White card stock.

This week’s final card doesn’t use the papers at all, rather all the little itty bitty stamps in this stamp set, along with Blushing Bride, Polished Pink, Parakeet Party, and Orchid Oasis.

Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah! If it’s your first time here, please consider subscribing to the blog or my emails to hear more from me, or checking out my Instagram where I post a new project (almost) daily.

This month’s InspireINK challenge was a really challenge for me…. so much that I choose to CASE a project from a very talented demonstrator, who is MUCH better at 3D crafting than me! However, I then managed to put the bag together upside down, so this is my Oops project, but I still think its a great project and so decided to share it anyway!

Suite Highlight | Expressions in Ink

I shared the Sweet as a Peach Suite a few weeks ago, and loved giving you a bit more of an over view of a group of products. There are always a stack of suites in each Stampin’ Up! catalogue, and they are a great way of ensuring you can create perfectly coordinated projects.

The Expressions in Ink suite isn’t one that you could easily miss, seeing as its on the front of this years Annual Catalogue. But it is one that could be tricky to use.

The Designer Series Paper in this suite is stunning! The colour combination of Evening Evergreen, Just Jade, Magenta Madness, Mint Macaron, Pale Papaya, Pear Pizzazz, Polished Pink, Shaded Spruce, and gold foiling, with florals and alcohol ink backgrounds. Of course, this paper is currently out of stock because it’s so lovely! However, I am keeping my eye on when it might be back, and will update my social media when its back available.

I think my favourite part of this suite though is the Ephemera pack. I have been really enjoying the gold die cuts, and those sequins are so handy for an added touch of sparkle.

Suite Highlight | Sweet as a Peach

Hello! So, not only do I have a blog post for you today, but its the start of a new series here at StampinByHannah AND it includes a video too! Last weekend I attended a fabulous team event focused on the fabulous Sweet as a Peach suite from Stampin’ Up! and shared part of the video below as a Make and Take.

I adore team events, and I cannot wait for the day I can see these wonderful ladies in person for a great big hug. We usually get together 3 or 4 times a year, and I’m really missing seeing them all. This weekend was so nice, seeing everyone’s faces (although only on Zoom!), and getting to chat about crafty things.

So, every so often I am going to start sharing a blog post featuring a bunch of projects all using the same group of products.

One of the joys of Stampin’ Up! is the coordination, and suites take this coordination to another level. Grab a complete suite, add inks and card stocks and create a whole heap of projects that you can guarantee all work and coordinate together!

I have added a couple of other products to the suite, the Stitched So Sweetly dies are an absolute staple in my craft room. They just add the most perfect layer and are great for sentiments and focal images. The Tasteful Labels dies are another must have set for me, adding a little extra detail to every card. I’ve also used some Gilded Gems, just for a little sparkle too!

In the catalogue I wasn’t sure about this suite, however, once I started creating with it, I just couldn’t stop. The flower stamps are so pretty, although I think I do actually prefer the large peach stamp.

The Designer Series Paper in the You’re a Peach suite is a pretty collection of peach-y images, pretty florals, and some really handy basic prints. It’s all hand watercoloured and had a really fun colour palette of; Balmy Blue, Bumblebee, Calypso Coral, Early Espresso, Mango Melody, Pale Papaya, Pear Pizzazz, and Petal Pink.

Check out the video for a full look at the suite, as well as how to create these multi-tonal, stamped peached.
