Christmastime is Here!

Yes, apparently Christmas now officially starts on the 1st November… I even got a Christmas Cup in Costa Coffee yesterday!

Stampin' Up! Christmastime is here product suite

However, Christmastime is Here is also the name of the latest Collection from Stampin’ Up!

This pretty floral, Christmas suite is full of lovely images that I can see you using in the spring too. The full collection bundle includes not only the fabulous Christmas Rose stamp set and coordinating dies, but also the matching Designer Series Paper, Gold ribbon and shimmery enamel dots, as well as a stunning, exclusive bracelet too!

Get the Christmastime is Here suite from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

This collection is a While Stocks Last opportunity, but can be included in a Stampin’ Up! Starter Kit to make it the gift that keeps on giving!

There is so much product in this collection! But, not only can you buy the collection in full, but also the individual items are available too (unlike some of the recent Product Medleys) so you could just grab the Designer Series Paper or the Stamp Set.

Check out these fun samples from Stampin’ Up! for some inspiration and then check out (and shop) the full collection

Inspire.Create.Challenge #055 | Bloom and Grow Thank you card

Hey folks!

So nice to see you this week, I’m trying to get back onto the blogging horse, and am aiming for 3 blog posts a week. I managed to blog twice last week, and I’m already writing this week a bit ahead of time so fingers crossed I can drop back into a routine!

Inspire.Create.Challenge colour challenge Night of Navy Old Olive Lovely Lipstick Blushing Bride Thank you card using Bloom and Grow from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

This week’s Inspire.Create.Challenge is a fun colour combination; Blushing Bride, Lovely Lipstick, Night of Navy and Old Olive. I almost took a Christmas-y twist on this one, but then I spotted Bloom and Grow on my stamp shelves and went floral instead!

The floral spray is heat embossed with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and then watercoloured with Lovely Lipstick, Night of Navy and Old Olive. I’ve add a background wash in Blushing Bride, the sentiment stamped in Night of Navy and a trio of Night of Navy jems from the Noble Peacock suite to finish.

Watercolour thank you card using Bloom and Grow from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

All the watercolouring is done on the new Fluid 100 watercolour paper, available through Stampin’ Up! It’s SO nice, I love a bit of watercolouring and this paper is smoother than the previously stocked Watercolour Paper and so makes for such a nice finish.

Hop over to the Inspire.Create.Challenge blog to see the other Design Team’s creations and add your own using the fun colour combination too!

See you next time!

InspireINK Blog Hop | Back to Basics with Christmas Gleaming

InspirInk Blog Hop Header Stampin' Up! team blog hop

This months InspireINK Blog Hop has a fun Back to Basics theme. The lovely Dee tasked us all with creating a simple card using just one stamp set, one ink colour, and one punch! I love challenges like this, it really pushes my creativity, and makes me think outside the box a bit

Saying this, I’ve actually used a bundle that includes 2 punches…. but I’ve only used one on this card. So, I think that still counts, right?!

InspireINK Blog Hop Christmas is Gleaming Back to Basics Card using Stampin' Up! products with StampinByHannah

The Christmas Gleaming bundle is one of my favourites in this years Stampin’ Up! Christmas catalogue. It’s unusual in that its one stamp set and two punches, but it also has some GORGEOUS coordinating Designer Series Paper too!

Here I’ve used one of the stamps repeatedly, stamped off once, to create a fun background. Before stamping and punching the bauble, and stamping and fussy cutting the sentiment; all in Pretty Peacock ink.

Merry Christmas Card using Christmas Gleaming from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

This simple card came together in a snap, and would be really easy to mass produce this year (particularly if you loaded up your Stamparatus with the stamps first!) and would look lovely in a whole heap of colours.

What some more inspiration on this rainy Saturday? Why not hop around these lovely blogs? Please leave some comment love as your on your travels too.

Hope you have a fabulously crafty weekend (I’m off to the Spa!) and I hope to see you again soon…

Beauty and Joy Team Swap Card

Hey folks!

Yes, I’ve finally managed to get around to blogging an actual creative project! This might well be card you’ve seen before, particularly if you received a copy of the Autumn Winter Catalogue from me in September, or if you took part in a recent team card swap.

Beauty and Joy Christmas Card using Stampin' Up! products with StampinByHannah

Beauty and Joy is one of those stamp sets in the catalogue that you might have accidentally skipped over. There are always a few hidden jems, and this one was so hidden that I didn’t remember ordering it! However, I’m so glad I did because its a really fun set to use. It features a collection of different pots and plants that covers a variety of seasons and occasions, and there are loads of looks you can create by mixing and matching different leaves, pots, stems and accessories too!

Here the tree leaves are stamped in Shaded Spruce (Stamped off once), with an Early Espresso trunk, Real Red berries and a Soft Suede basket pot.

A Joyful Christmas Card using Beauty and Joy from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

I also couldn’t resist pairing this stamp set with some of my current favourite dies; these are the Stitched Nested Labels and they are so versatile they never seem to get put away!

Thanks so much for stopping by StampinByHannah today, and I hope to see you here again soon

Well Hello! | UPDATE

Hi folks!

Sorry for the recent silence from me, trying to find the time to create and blog with a 5 month old baby is trickier than I was prepared for! I can’t quite believe she’s 5 months old already, really, where has the time gone… it’s nearly Christmas!

I’ve had a fabulous summer, enjoying my baby and Maternity Leave, but now we are heading for Winter I’m preparing to return to my full time (and quite full on) day job.

I wanted to let you know what my plan is for my little corner of the internet, because obviously time is an absolute luxury and trying to fit every activity / chore / etc. in is quite a juggle! I am hoping that over the next couple of weeks I can settle into some sort of routine that includes a bit of creative ‘me’ time, and therefore some blog posts for you to!

I have no intention of leaving Stampin’ Up! 1. because I LOVE to craft with their products, and 2. because I love my Stampin’ Up! friends and team mates FAR too much to leave. So, you can still shop with me (link to my online store can be found at the end of every single one of my blog posts), but I wont be offering any clubs, shares or classes for a little while (but never say never!)

News from Stampin’ Up!

So, a few months ago Stampin’ Up! retired the Stampin’ Trimmer and left us without a paper cutter. However, the wait for a new one is almost over! The new Trimmer has been launched to demonstrators and we are just waiting for a date for customer release. Mine is coming on my next order, and I will be sure to let you know what I think when it arrives!

Also, check out the Clearance Rack, there are some fabulous bargains in there at the moment, including 15% off the fabulous Everything is Rosy Product Medley from a couple of months ago.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to see you again very very soon

Inspire.Create.Challenge 054 | Die Cutting with Gather Together

Oh dear, for all my crafty mojo is returning, the time I have to craft has completely disappeared!

However, I did manage to whip this card up in a flash over the weekend, all thanks to Stampin’ Up! now offering suites under one item number, meaning that I have a stack of goodies that all match! All I needed to do was pull the matching card stock and inks and this card was made in a flash!

Gather Together Wishing you well card for Inspire.Create.Challenge

This card uses the Come to Gather suite from the Stampin’ Up! Autumn Winter Catalogue. I LOVE the colours in this suite, I have a bit of an obsession with Pretty Peacock which features heavily in the Designer Series Paper… but not on this card!

This card was made for this weeks Inspire.Create.Challenge which this time is a theme, and so the Design Team have made a whole heap of cards featuring Die Cutting.

Get Well Soon card using Come to Gather from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

The pumpkins, stamped in Pear Pizzazz, are die cut using the coordinating dies. I LOVE that this pack of dies comes with duplicates, makes it super quick to die cut a bunch of images all at once.

Check out the rest of the Design Teams Die Cutting projects over on the Inspire.Create blog, and share your creations with us over there too!

Pootlers Blog Hop | Brightly Gleaming

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

Welcome to the Pootlers Team Blog Hop! I am so proud to organise this fabulous group of ladies into this blog hop, they have made a heap of fantastic projects so please check them out at the end of this post.

Merry Christmas with Brightly Gleaming from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

I’ve been struggling with my crafty mojo recently thanks to a bit of Post-Natal Anxiety (just one of the many joys of motherhood!)but I couldn’t NOT add a project into this blog hop! I’ve used the Brightly Gleaming suite for this card. This suite is up there with my favourite’s of all time, that Designer Series Paper alone is just stunning!

Brightly Gleaming Christmas Card using Stampin' Up! products for the Poolters Blog Hop with StampinByHannah

The baubles are from the Christmas Gleaming stamp set (that comes bundled with 2 punches!), and are stamped on Watercolour Paper in Pretty Peacock, Mossy Meadow and Night of Navy. Then I used an Aqua-Painted to pull the colour, for this pretty watercolour effect.

Watercolour Christmas Card using Christmas Gleaming from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

I finished with this card with a panel of Brightly Gleaming Designer Series Paper, some loop of Mossy Meadow twine from the Magnolia Lane suite, and a trio of Rhinestones

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope to see you again soon!

Inspire.Create.Challenge 052 | Most Wonderful Colour Challenge!

I’ve had a few weeks off from Inspire.Create, but after a fabulous team retreat at the weekend I’ve got some of my creative mojo back, and the baby has gone to sleep early so I’ve actually got time to write a blog post!

This fortnight’s challenge is a colour one… and its a bit bright! But I can’t wait to see what everyone creates with it. Don’t forget to pop over to the Inspire.Create blog to see the rest of the Design Team’s work and to add your own projects too

Inspire.Create.Challenge 052 Stampin' Up! Colour Challenge

I haven’t managed to craft much over the summer, and my Autumn Winter catalogue order has sat in my craft room pretty un-loved. However, I knew I wanted to dip into this new crafty stash for this weeks challenge.

Most Wonderful Time Christmas Present Card using Stampin' Up! products with StampinByHannah

Now, I know that Coastal Cabana, Melon Mambo and Gorgeous Grape don’t sound very Christmas-y, I do LOVE a non-traditional Christmas colour palette, and I think this one works rather well!

Christmas Present Card using Most Wonderful Time from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

The Most Wonderful Time Product Medley contains everything you need to create a heap of Christmas cards; stamp set and coordinating dies, heaps of Designer Series Paper, ribbon and sticker embellishments too! I’ll be working with this one all month ready for a very special class in October!

Non traditional Christmas Card using Most Wonderful Time from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

These 3 present stamps are actually one stamp, and the dies cut them out to be separate! The ribbons are then another stamp, which is how I have created these multi-coloured images. So, each set of presents was stamped 3 times; once in each colour, and then the ribbons added before die cutting. I wasn’t planning on adding all the die cuts to this one card, but the arranged themselves like this on my desk and I couldn’t resist!

What will you create with this fun colour combo? Don’t forget to share your creations over on the Inspire.Create blog!
