International Blog Highlight | Thanks Biggest Wish

Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah today for Kylie’s International Blog Highlight. I would LOVE it if you would pop over to Kylie’s blog and vote for this card to take part in the July Blog Hop !

I have been having heaps of fun recently with the Rays of Light background stamp. This is certainly one of the gems in this years Annual Catalogue, an perfect for making a simple card very special. Here I inked it in Pale Papaya and then used a Blending Brush to add some Calypso Coral to the outside edges to create a sort of ombre effect.

Simple Stamping Thank you card using Biggest Wish from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

The ‘Thanks’ is stamped from Biggest Wish (one of my favourite sentiment sets of the moment!), and is in Pacific Point. I don’t use this colour often, but I think it really works with these orange tones on the rest of this card. The stamps in Biggest Wish are super easy to fussy cut, and I think it just adds an extra something to this #simplestamping card!

I finished this one with a trio of the new Fine Sparkle Adhesive-backed Gems in Calypso Coral.

You can find the Supply List for this card HERE, and don’t forget to pop over to Kylie’s Blog to vote!

InspireINK | Happier than Happy

Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah today, and to the InspireINK blog hop. This month our challenge was set by the lovely Janice Thomson of JazzleDazzleCrafts… and she set a really tough one; Sunshine, Flowers and Insects. So, I’ve gone a little outside of the theme, but there is an insect / butterfly on this one!

Happier than happy card using Stampin' Up! products from StampinByHannah

This card uses the Happy Forest Friends suite. I have to admit, this wasn’t something that immediately leapt into my basket, however there as some cute images in the stamp set that I just couldn’t leave behind. The Designer Series Paper is really lovely, there are some very cute-sy images, but also a bunch of really great basic patterns too.

International Blog Highlights | Thank You Amazing Silhouettes

Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah for Kylies International Blog Highlight. I will get in early and remind you to pop over to Kylie’s blog to vote for your favourite cards this month. My card today was inspired by a card in the new Annual Catalogue (don’t you just love that its an Inspiration book as well as a catalogue?), although I have changed the colour, stamps and Designer Series Paper from the version in the book!

This card actually uses a bunch of left over pieces from my Team Retreat a few weeks ago! The paper (Symbols of Fortune) was part of a Make and Take I didn’t get around to making (no surprises there!), and the Gold Metallic Paper a gift from my team leader.

The Butterfly stamp is taken from Amazing Silhouettes, which is currently bundled with the Amazing Thanks Dies. Top Tip here; make sure you have the Adhesive Sheets for these dies, it makes them SO much easier to layer up.

InspireINK | Something Old Something New…

InspirInk Blog Hop Header Stampin' Up! team blog hop

Hello! Time for another trip around the InspireINK blog hop. This month the theme has been set by the very lovely Heidi from FlutterbyHeidi. She’s been very clever and chosen ‘Something Old, Something New’. I’ve chosen a new die set, and an older stamp set for my project.

Amazing Thanks with Forever Fern for InspireINK using Stampin' Up! products with StampinByHannah

I am bit of a sucker for this colour combination; Shaded Spruce, Garden Green, Old Olive and Blushing Bride, along with Basic White, a touch of Vellum and a hint of Gold.

The leaves in the background are from Forever Fern. A firm favourite stamp set in my stamp room! I love that I can layer just about as many leaves as I can, and it still looks great! Where the sentiment is a brand new die set; Amazing Thanks. Die cut in Basic White and Blushing Bride. I always use Adhesive Sheets with this type of die, it just makes these so easy to stick down.

Natural Thanks handmade card using Amazing Thanks from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah for InspireINK

This card was almost finished, but something just didn’t look quite right. So, I added a rectangle of Vellum and a trio of Brushed Brass Butterflies.

Global Design Project #307 | Thank you Hand-Penned Petals

Well hello there! Yes, I’m not blogging at my usual 7AM slot today, but I have been trying to write this blog post for 2 days and I just want to share this card!

I get the emails from the Global Design Project every week, and every week I think “Yes, I’ll make a card for that challenge” and somehow it never quite works out. This week its thanks to the 2 year old who thinks that her bed is for jumping on and nothing else! (Anyone know how to get a 2 year old to stay in bed, please let me know the secret!)

Anyway, that’s a bit of topic isn’t it! So, the Global Design Project challenge this week is “Thank you”, and the beautiful Hand-Penned suite landed in my craft room last week and I’ve been itching to play. The two go together beautifully.

I saw a post on Instagram over the weekend about ‘faux embossing’ and I thought that the dies in the Penned Flowers die set (part of the Hand-Penned Petals bundle) would work super well for this. So the background here, is 3 die cuts cut from Basic White cardstock (with Adhesive sheet on the back!) and layered onto a panel of Basic White cardstock. How cool does this look! Love it!

I um’ed and ah’ed for ages about what to layer behind the heat embossed, fussy cut, sentiment piece, and I did nearly just adhere it on and leave it. But then the flowers in the stamp set caught my eye and I thought they’d be perfect.

The Hand-Penned suite coordinates perfectly with the Beautifully Penned Designer Series paper which is currently available for FREE with a £45 during Sale-a-bration (ends at the end of this month!). I love this paper; which is the perfect greyscale version of the Hand-Penned papers and they work wonderfully together.

Thanks for stopping by StampinByHannah today, if you like what you see please consider subscribing to my weekly emails. I’m having heaps of fun writing them at the moment and they always have a fun project idea as well as some other stuff I’m loving each week.

Inspire.Create.Challenge #084 | Ink Blended Thank You Card

Welcome to StampinByHannah today, I am always so grateful for your visit. Today it’s time for another Inspire.Create.Challenge, and this week we have a fabulous colour challenge for you all.

Stampin' Up! Valentines Colour combination for Inspire.Create.Challenge

I am often inspired by the colour combinations in the Stampin’ Up! catalogue, and this one was taken from the Valentines suite this year. Love You Always can be used for so much more than Valentines though, and I thought it a good time (on Valentines day) to give you a heap of inspiration with the suite that’s not totally loved up!

Pretty Ink Blended Thank You card using True Love Designer Series paper from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

I shared a couple of Ink Blended cards on Friday, and this card also used the Blending Brushes to create this pretty background. I took a piece of the True Love Designer Series Paper, and blended the two pink tones; Blushing Bride and Rococo Rose using the Stampin’ Up! Blending Brushes.

This Designer Series Paper is so pretty! I love purely Black and White Designer Series Paper packs, just for this reason; being able to add your own colours and totally change the look and feel of it. It’s so fun!

Heat Embossed Thank you card using Heal your Heart from Stampin' Up! Sale-a-bration with StampinByHannah

The sentiment on this card is taken from the Heal You Heart Stamp Set which is currently FREE with a £45 order during Sale-a-bration. I’ve heat embossed it onto a die cut piece of Vellum, and layered it over a piece of Sahara Sand card stock.

The card is finished with a trio of the Gilded Gems

Don’t forget to pop over to the Inspire.Create.Challenge blog to see the rest of the Design Teams creations and to add your own makes using this lovely colour combination too!

I LOVE sending Customer thank you cards, I always pop something into the post to say thanks for choosing me as your Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. The fact that you have chosen to shop with me is a huge honour, and really, sending a little handmade thank you is not enough… but there just aren’t enough hours in the day.

Customer thank you cards using Thankful Thoughts Playful Backgrounds and Crazy about you from Stampin' Up! UK

Normally I wait until the end of the month to send my Thank you cards, but I made a few of these early for those lovely ladies that shopped my Buy One Get One Free sale earlier in the month. Now, I wouldn’t normally throw 3 stamp sets at one card either but I got a little carried away with the stamping! I do love Stamping you know! lol

Customer thank you cards using Thankful Thoughts Playful Backgrounds and Crazy about you from Stampin' Up! UK

Ok, so the sentiment is from Thankful Thoughts, the background is Playful Backgrounds and the flowers are from Crazy About You and punched with the Flower Medallion punch


Question of the day: What are you planning for dinner?
