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!

Pootlers Blog Hop | 3 Card Ideas with the Sun Prints suite from Stampin’ Up!

Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah today. Today is a little bit special, because its our team blog hop, we do about 3 of these a year to celebrate the release of new Stampin’ Up! Catalogues. They are SO much fun, and I hope that you hit some of the other ladies blogs later using the links at the end of this blog post.

When I was shopping through the new Annual Catalogue, this suite didn’t immediately jump out at me. However, after seeing some of the fabulous creations that the Artisan’s had created with it, it fell into my basket!

Sentimental Swirls | Pootlers Blog Hop!

Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah today. This is the 3rd blog hop with the Pootler’s so far this year, but really I think this is the most special. Over a year ago, Sam Hammond Donald hit the massive career milestone of selling $1Million worth of Stampin’ Up! products, and so got to help design a stamp set. This stamp set launched in January, and today’s hop is dedicated to showcasing this one fabulous stamp set. Check out everyone else’s ideas using the links at the end of this post.

Hello Sentimental Swirls from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

One of the things that I think is really cool about this stamp set is that it coordinates with two fabulous punches; Flowers and Leaves, and the Strawberry Builder. PLUS, it is perfect for two-step stamping (one of my favourite techniques!) for quick colouring.

For this card, I coloured the flowers using Stampin’ Blends, in Misty Moonlight and So Saffron.

Pootlers Blog Hop | Happiness with Pansy Patch

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

Welcome to the Pootlers Annual Catalogue 2021 Blog Hop! I am SO excited to be hopping with our fabulous team again. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen any of the team in person (Thanks Covid) and I cannot wait to give them all some seriously big squishy hugs at our next event.

One of my favourite suites from the new Annual Catalogue is the Pansy Petals suite. It’s come as a bit of a surprise really, because I’d forgotten that I’d even ordered it! But, it’s so fun to layer up the pansy stamps and there are so many wonderful colour combinations that I can’t see me getting bored with this one any time soon!

Happiness Handstamped card using Pansy Patch from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

I made a Home Decor piece with this bundle last weekend, that used a fun pink and coral colour combo, but this time I’ve had a bit of a Google of pansies and found this pretty blue combination. So, the blooms here are stamped in; Balmy Blue, Misty Moonlight (stamped off), Bumblebee (stamped off), Bumblebee, and Blackberry Bliss.

The stamps line up really easily, but the dies also coordinate with the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper if you wanted to go for a non-stamped card!

Fun Pansy floral card using Bumblebee trinkets and Stitched So Sweetly dies from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

The card base is one of the brand new In Colours; Soft Succulent, and its a colour I’m loving already! Here I’ve also used a piece of the Designer Series Paper in the same colour, from Pansy Petals, and the sentiment is also stamped in the same ink.

The Bumblebee Trinkets are the perfect finisher. So pretty!

Time to Sale-a-brate Berry Blessings with the Pootlers Blog Hop!

Welcome to StampinByHannah and the first Pootlers Team Blog Hop of 2021! This time we’re sharing a heap of projects using the new Sale-a-bration gifts.

There are a bunch of really cool Stamp Sets and Designer Series Paper packs that you can currently receive for FREE with an order of over £45! How cool is that?!

Berry Blessings

I thought I would create with the Berry Blessings stamp set today. This stamp set comes with a pack of Designer Series Paper and so requires a £90 spend, BUT it also coordinates with the Sweet Strawberry stamp set and punch bundle from the new Mini Catalogue!

Quick and simply card using Berry Blessings from Stampin' Up! Sale-a-bration 2021 with StampinByHannah

One of the reasons I love this stamp set (and Sweet Strawberry) is that you don’t need to get the markers out to colour the images… as they all have a outline stamp and then a filled stamp to colour the image!

This card uses Misty Moonlight for the card base and the blueberries, and Pear Pizzazz for the leaves and sentiment.

I couldn’t pass the opportunity to stamp with blueberries either… they are my daughters absolute favourite fruit, I think she’d eat them at every meal if she could!

Curvy Celebrations Blog Hop with the Pootlers!

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

Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah and to the Pootlers Team Curvy Celebrations Blog Hop!

I LOVE being a part of this team, we have such fun together. This past week we’ve taken part in a Curvy Celebrations focused event, and so I thought that we should share some of our Curvy creations with you. I’m having a great time creating with the Quite Curvy bundle, and can’t wait to show you even more inspiration!

Once you’ve checked out my project, scroll to the bottom of this post for links to heaps more inspirational crafty projects using the Curvy Celebrations products.

This card was inspired by my very talented friend Verity, who made a really lovely card using the leaf stamp and a blue ink. I am still very much enjoying Misty Moonlight, and so this card was born!

The leave boarder stamp is stamped onto Fluid 100 watercolour paper and heat embossed in White, before I watercoloured the image with Misty Moonlight. I love this technique, but I know it can be a bit intimidating, do let me know if you’d like a Facebook Live tutorial on how I do it.

The Designer Series Paper is taken from the 2020-2022 In Colour stack, and I die cut the edge to add an extra detail. The paper is also layered over some more stamping, and the rough cut sentiment piece.

I almost left this card at that, but it just didn’t feel complete. So, I went hunting through my embellishment stash and came up with these pretty wooden leaves, and In Colour enamel dots.

Pootlers Blog Hop | Merry Christmas with Trimming the Town

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

Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah and to the Pootlers Blog Hop for the August-December 2020 Mini Catalogue. Gosh, I feel like autumn winter has hit us early this year, but then I suppose that that also means that 2020 will end sooner rather than later, which can only be a good thing right?!

Anyway, I’ve got a fun Christmas card for you today for the team blog hop. I have been loving the Trimming the Town suite of products in this latest catalogue. The stamp set, dies and Designer Series Paper just coordinate so perfectly (like, the dies cut out the Designer Series Paper!!!!), and using Stampin’ Blends to colour the houses has just been making my heart happy.

Merry Christmas Card using Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

This card is actually Poppy Parade, but you can’t really see much of it as the whole card from is covered with a piece of Designer Series Paper cut to 14.8 x 13.5 cm. The paper is scored at 10.5 cm and then folded back to give this pop of people down the right hand side.

The main focus though is that circle embellishment. I cut two circles; 1 in Poppy Parade and 1 in Whisper White, and then further die cut the Whisper White one using one of the dies in the Home Together dies to create a sort of snow drift effect.

Then I stamped two of the houses and a tree from the Coming Home stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and coloured them using Stampin’ Blends.

I haven’t done any fancy Blend colouring here, rather just adding a layer of the lighter tone of the colour over the whole area, and the picking out the areas that could be in shadow with a single line of the darker tone. I love that Stampin’ Blends now come in pairs, so you always have the perfect colour partners when either basic colouring like this, or doing more complicated Blending!

The sentiment is stamped in Poppy Parade and is from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp set which you can find in the Annual catalogue.

Pootlers Team Blog Hop | Happy Birthday with Peaceful Poppies

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

Hello!

Welcome to the Poolers Team Blog Hop! I have to admit to being a bit of a last minute larry this time (in fact, I wrote this blog post after the deadline! oops!)

Peaceful Poppies Happy Birthday Card using Stampin' Up! products for the Pootlers Team Blog Hop with StampinByHannah

When I first saw the catalogue last month I knew that the Peaceful Poppies Suite was at the very top of my list. The Designer Series Paper alone for me is an absolute winner! It’s that pretty watercolour, floral that Stampin’ Up! do SO well, with a strong theme of Blackberry Bliss, a colour I just cannot resist!

This card was the very first thing I made with it too! A Blackberry Bliss card base, layered with a piece of that gorgeous paper, and then added to with a couple of die cuts, a sentiment and a scattering of sequins! Just the sort of card that makes my heart happy.
