StampinByHannah Soft Sayings All Inclusive Card Kit from Stampin’ Up!

 

Sometimes, you need a card in a snap… a project in a hurry… or want to craft but have no inspiration or idea where to start? When I have times like this I grab for one of the Stampin’ Up! All Inclusive Card Kits…. there are 4 in the new catalogue, and I thought I would share one of them with you today! You can find 3 of them (and the refills) at the end of this blog post.

Pretty Watercolour I Miss You Card from the Soft Sayings Card Kit from Stampin' Up!

I LOVE this kit… It has a fabulous mixture of different card sizes, pre-printed watercolour effect backgrounds, fun die cuts and Gold Glimmer paper!

The Soft Sayings Card Kit makes 16 fabulous cards; 2 of each of 8 designs… PLUS it comes with a really fun stamp set that you can use again and again. One of the fun things about this kit, is that you can also grab a re-fill kit…. so you can make all 16 cards again! Yay!

InspireInk Blog Hop | Creating a fabulous BIG Birthday Card…

Big Birthday Card using Happy Birthday Thinlit from Stampin' Up! for the InspireINK blog Hop

StampinByHannah InspireInk Blog Hop Creating a fabulous BIG Birthday Card…

InspirInk Blog Hop Header Stampin' Up! team blog hop

Ok, so this month’s InspireINK blog hop theme was Milestone Birthdays… and while I love a good milestone, I don’t have ANY in my family or friends this year. I think that the next person to celebrate a birthday in our family will be 34 (or maybe 35…. I can’t remember!). Anyway…. I sort of changed Milestone for BIG…. and so this card was created…

Monotone Mint Birthday Card using the Sequin Embossing Folder from Stampin' Up!

I haven’t used Happy Birthday Thinlit die in a while… but I am so glad it’s carried forward into the new Annual Catalogue, it just makes some really simple, but really effective birthday cards. Here I’ve die cut it 4 times; 3 time from Very Vanilla card stock, and once from a piece of Mint Macaron card stock that I had added some ink blending to. I have to add that I did pop some Multi-purpose Adhesive Sheet onto the back of the card stock before I die cut it… just makes stacking these die cuts SO much easier!

Mint Macaron Sequin Birthday Card using Stampin' Up! products

I put a heap of sequins into one of my recent Stampin’ Up! orders…. I LOVE sequins on cards, and self-adhesive ones are just fantastic! Then I remembered that I had grabbed the Scattered Sequins Embossing Folder to an order a while ago, and hadn’t used it (I know, it’s shocking isn’t it!) and so I ripped the plastic off it, and ran it through my Big Shot…. for a completely Sequined card!

I can’t wait to see what the other girls in the InspireINK team have created for this challenge…. why not hop along with me and find out!

Inspire.Create.Challenge 018 | Lemon Zest Sunshine Birthday Card

Inspire.Create.Challenge Card making Theme Challenge Lemon Zest Birthday Card using Stampin' Up! products

StampinByHannah Inspire.Create.Challenge 018 Lemon Zest Sunshine Birthday Card

Inspire.Create.Challenge Card making Theme Challenge Sunshine

As we head towards summer here in the UK we are all hoping for some more Sunshine… but you know, you can always make your own! For me Sunshine says Bright colours and fun…. and I hope that my card for Inspire.Create.Challenges fits that brief!

Bright and Fun Birthday Card using Lemon Zest from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

It has been FAR too long since I pulled this stamp set off my Stamp Shelf! Lemon Zest is so fun… and it has a coordinating punch… but it’s one I have really struggled to use! So, this is a bit of a two part challenge for me this week, one, to make a card that says ‘Sunshine’ and two, to make something with this fabulous Stamp Set!

The card itself is Old Olive, with layers of Rich Razzleberry and Whisper White, a splatter of Old Olive ink… and then I’ve gone to town with circle dies!

How to make a quick and easy Birthday Card using Lemon Zest from Stampin' Up! with #stampinbyhannah

It’s always really easy to forget what sentiments a theme’d stamp set like this contains… but how lovely is that Happy Birthday?

I cannot wait to see you ‘Sunshine’ cards over at Inspire.Create.Challenge, do check out the other Design Team inspiration too!

Make It Monday | Quick and easy Perennial Birthday Day Card

Simple Man's birthday card using Perennial Birthday from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah Make It Monday Quick and easy Perennial Birthday Day Card

Make It Monday

This weekend I spent most of my time in my craft room, I have finally managed to get myself a little ahead with videos, filmed 7 on Saturday and then my fortnightly Facebook Live yesterday. However, today’s video is quite possibly the shortest tutorial I have ever filmed!

Make It Monday Simple Stamped Birthday Card with Perennial Birthday from Stampin' Up!

When making cards for men, I tend to keep things simple. Often I’ll keep to single layer, and while this card has a couple matts, I think you could count this in that category.

The Happy Birthday uses one of my ‘go-to’ simple stamping techniques; Repeat Stamping. The stamp was actually only inked 3 times to get the effect… check the video to see how it’s done!

 

This card uses my standard card sizes. You can find them over on my Standard Card Measurements Page.

Simple Man's birthday card using Perennial Birthday from Stampin' Up!

This card was finished with a splatter of Basic Black ink, splattered using a Black Stampin’ Write Marker.

Project Share Banner

Even though I’m on a bloggy break this week I couldn’t miss digging through my Stampin’ Buddies blog archive… and I have some fabulous projects to share with you this week!

Helen Slimm

I am such a sucker for a scrapbooking project, and when I spotted this gorgeous photo of Helen’s Nan I couldn’t not share it with you! This week Helen has made this fabulous Memories and More album for her Nan… what a fabulous gift!

Sally Shaw

I’m actually sharing one of Sally’s videos this week… can you tell Helen sent me off looking for Memories and More projects?!

I just LOVE this fabulous scrapbooking system! The card packs are just such great value with heaps of cards, along with sticks and more! PLUS the line is expanding in the upcoming Annual catalogue to make these packs truly Memories and MORE!

Angelina Clark

So, I did search Angelina’s blog for some Memories and More…. but sadly I couldn’t come up with anything current. However, I did find this awesome project that uses the Birthday Memories suite! This project is just fantastic… don’t forget to click the image to see all the details… and the video tutorial too!

I’ve been using the Memories and More packs to complete my own scrapbooking project in 2018! Normally the last Thursday in the month would be my monthly One Little Word update…. but I’m going to delay April’s for a week or so. But it will be back soon!

Go for Greece Blog Hop | Beautiful Day Birthday Card

Pretty Night of Navy Birthday card using the Butterfly stamp from Beautiful Day from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah Go for Greece Blog Hop Beautiful Day Birthday Card

Go for Greece Blog Hop

I’m back blog hopping today with the fabulous ladies from Go for Greece! I have been having so much fun (and learning a LOT!) from this wonderful bunch of women…. and being able to join them for another blog hop is so exciting!

I actually made this card during a really organised few days at the start of the month… before we had attending Stampin’ Up! OnStage, and learned about some of the upcoming changes to out inks and colour families. I have a full blog post about the changes, that you can find HERE! One of the changes though is that Night of Navy will move colour family from the Regals into the Neutrals. I LOVE this idea… as I use Night of Navy as a neutral so often, and it is one of my ‘go to’ card base colours too.

How to make a pretty butterfly Birthday Card using Beautiful Day from Stampin' Up!

I have been playing with Vellum a lot recently, I just LOVE the soft effects you can create with it. This card has a layer of Vellum over the top of the stamped butterfly. The trick with using Vellum on cards is getting it to stick! Here I have used glue does behind that big fat bow, and a small piece of Tear & Tape behind the heat embossed sentiment. I’ve used Tear & Tape because its clear, and so when you use it on Whisper White card stock it disappears! Awesome!

Go for Greece Blog Hop Happy Birthday Card using Beautiful Day

Today’s card is finished with a pretty double bow of the retiring Night of Navy Crinkle Seam Binding Ribbon, I am so sad to see this go I’ve used it SO much! The other ribbon is the 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon which I was excited to see is in the new Annual Catalogue! I will be sharing more about what is coming, and how you can get a catalogue from me really soon, but in the meantime do hop along to the other ladies on this fabulous blog hop… I’m sure some of them might just have a couple of sneak peaks for you!

James’ True Gentleman Birthday Card…

Fun birthday card using Truly Tailored and True Gentleman Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah James’ True Gentleman Birthday Card…

 

So, last week I shared THIS card for Inspire.Create.Challenges… well today I have the card that sparked that one!

This card was also inspired by a Global Design Project sketch challenge from a few weeks ago, and while I didn’t quite get to posting it for that challenge, I still wanted to share it with you.

How to make a classic Man's Birthday Card using True Gentleman from Stampin' Up!

So, the background of the Basket Weave Embossing Folder was a freebie during Sale-a-bration, but is coming back in this years Annual Catalogue! Yay! But it isn’t available right now 🙁

The True Gentleman Designer Series Paper is a fun mix of heaps of guy themed images and classic patterns, and it is perfect for guy cards. Each layer here has had it’s edges sponged with Crumb Cake ink to help to tie everything together for a fully cohesive look

Fun Masculine Birthday card using Truly Tailored from Stampin' Up!

The ‘You’re a Fox’ stamp coordinates with the Tailored Tag punch… but I will admit that rather than buying it, I hand cut this one! It’s a nice simple shape… and I would rather spend my £££’s on stamps!

This card is finished with a length of Corduroy Night of Navy ribbon and a trio of True Gentleman Buttons

Inspire.Create.Challenges Masculine Challenge Card Making Papercraft

This week’s Inspire.Create.Challenge is a Theme… and it’s a Theme that I think a lot of us struggle with, cards for men! They are tricky to please, and they don’t want pink, or floral, or bows… and lets be honest, that’s a LOT of our crafting! However, Stampin’ Up! to the rescue again… with the True Gentleman suite!

How to make a fun Masculine Birthday Card using Truly Tailored from Stampin' Up!

This card was inspired by another card I have made recently (that I’ll be sharing with you very soon!). I have been really enjoying making men’s card with the True Gentleman suite, the stamps and Designer Series Paper just tie together so perfectly… don’t you LOVE it when products do that, makes crafting so easy!

The card base is in Sahara Sand, and the first layer is a sheet of Night of Navy card stock embossed using the Hexagons Embossing Folder. You can find my standard card making measurements HERE!

Cool Man's card using Truly Tailored from Stampin' Up!

There are 3 different pieces of Designer Series Paper at work here too… along with a circle of DIY Designer Series Paper (stamped using the Truly Tailored stamp set). The circles are all cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelits, these dies are definitely at the top of my crafty MUST HAVE list, I use them SO often!

This card is finished with a trio of strips of Night of Navy Corduroy Ribbon.

I would LOVE to see you masculine creations, join in with us at Inspire.Create.Challenges!
