Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah this evening for another pre-recorded video. Usually I go Live on YouTube at 19:30 on a Wednesday evening, except that I am on holiday this week, and rather than leave you without a video, I have filmed something for you instead!
The Hues of Happiness suite is the suite that is featured in this month’s Card Club!
Card Club is so much fun! Each month we made 3 exclusive cards from a card kit produced by me. Kits include all the card stock, Designer Series Paper, ribbons and embellishments that you need to complete the projects. All you need to do it add the stamps and ink (although you can of course add the stamps to your kit!)
Club starts today and is just £12.50 (plus £3.50 postage and packing) each month, and term is 6 months long. Sign up before the 28th of the month to receive this months kit
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 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.
Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah today for another Inspire.Create.Challenge. This week we have a fabulous sketch for you to create with. Do pop over to the Inspire.Create blog to see the sketch, check out the Design team projects and add your own makes too!
I have been playing with the Abstract Beauty suite this past week, while I wait for my Annual Catalogue order to arrive! I absolutely LOVE the Hello Beautiful stamp set, but the Designer Series Paper is gorgeous with all that fabulous gold foiling.
This week’s sketch had me a bit stumped if I’m honest, however I do love this card. I think I might make another version for this week’s YouTube video though… so do watch out for that!
Hello all! Last weekend I attended a whole weekend of crafting with my Stampin’ sisters for a fun team retreat. We had the BEST time! I did a round up on my YouTube on Wednesday night, but I thought I would link to a few of the swaps I received here, so that you can check them out in more details….
Helzie made these fabulous cards, and YouTube video to share;
Gez made these fun chocolate boxes;
Sally made these fun boxes (I still have mine sat on my desk… although the chocolates have gone!)
Jayne’s notebook is also still on my desk, and filled with things for the Card Club!
Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah today. Today I have a fun card for you for Inspire.Create.Challenges. This challenge is a fabulous colour one; Black, White, and then a colour of your choice…. so I’ve gone for Coastal Cabana.
This fabulous stamp set was designed in collaboration with my wonderful friend Sam Hammond Donald (Pootles) who I am actually on a retreat with as this blog post goes live. So, she will actually be getting this card this weekend too!
Don’t forget to head over to the Inspire.Create.Challenges blog post and check out what the Design Team have been creating, and add your own creations too. I cannot wait to see what colour you add to Black and White!
Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah today, I am SO excited to be back hopping with the ladies from InspireINK today. This month the challenge was set by the lovely Gez aka Nigezza… and she set a very purple theme! I am SUCH a purple girl… so this was totally up my street, and this card came together very quickly!
Hello! Did you catch my YouTube Live this week? If not, don’t panic the reply is linked later in this blog post. We had heaps of fun this week making a couple of cards using Masking techniques, and the Rainbows of Happiness stamp and die bundle. I absolutely LOVE this stamp and die set, it’s just got very happy vibes!
This card is so bright and happy. I couldn’t not make a rainbow card in rainbow colours; Poppy Parade, Mango melody, Granny Apple Green and Pacific Point. But the part of this card I really love is the background, those dimensional, sparkly, Embossing Paste Rainbows! To create those rainbows, I made a mask by die cutting the rainbow from a piece of Window Sheet, and then added the embossing paste over the top.
This weeks YouTube Live used the fabulous Artfully Layered suite from the January-June Mini Catalogue. I have been having great fun with these products, and this month’s Card Club uses the same Designer Series Paper.
The first card we made was inspired by this week’s Global Design Project Sketch Challenge. I don’t make many slim line cards, but I thought it was an interesting idea.
This card is 21 x 15.8 cm, scored at 7.4 cm on the short side…. and it fits in the Stampin’ Up! Slimline Envelopes too! The card base is Mint Macaron, and the circle die cut from the Artfully Composed Designer Series Paper.
I tried something with this card I hadn’t done before, and added Adhesive sheet to the back of some Vellum before using the coordinating dies to cut these fun leaves. It works really well… and you cannot tell there is any adhesive there at all. I finished this one with a stamped sentiment a trio of the Faux Sea glass Shapes.
This week’s second card was inspired by a card from one of the Stampin’ Up! Artisans. While she used a slightly different technique, I really liked the general feel of this card, and had to have a go! The leaves were both stamped in Soft Seafoam onto Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper, and then watercoloured with a combination of Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive and Mossy Meadow. I LOVE the final look!
If you have enjoyed today’s project, I have a Card Club for April that uses the Artfully Composed Designer Series Paper (and you can always add the Artfully Layered stamp set too!). Club is just £12.50 per month, for 5 months. Sign up by dropping me an email HERE.
Welcome to StampinByHannah today for a fabulous inspiration challenge with Inspire.Create.Challenges. This week’s challenge is inspired by the lovely Kate Bolt, hop over to the Inspire.Create.Challenges blog to see the original inspiration card.
I’ve used Kate’s card as a sketch, but also as inspiration to use the Heart and Home suite. I LOVE this suite, particularly the Designer Series Paper… although I haven’t used it on this card.
Usually you would use Memento to stamp when you’re colouring with Stampin’ Blends, however as Stampin’ Up! inks are water based they also work with the markers. So, here I’ve stamped the floral image 4 times in Basic Gray ink, and then coloured with Stampin’ Blends
