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!

I have made 3 cards to share with you today, but I think that I will make some more to share on my weekly YouTube Live on Wednesday night, because these are so fun and really simple to do!

How to create a stunning PINK Nature's Prints Hello Card using Stampin' Up! products with StampinByHannah

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.

Card ideas using Abstract Beauty from Stampin’ Up!

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.

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.

Inspire.Create.Challenge #116 | Sketch with Abstract Beauty

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!

Thank you Abstract Beauty using Hello Beautiful from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

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!

To create this card you will need:

Masking with Rainbows of Happiness….

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.

Product List


The second card in this week’s video, uses masks again, but this time with ink to create a really soft background.

Card ideas using Artfully Layered from Stampin’ Up!

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.

Hey There SlimLine card using Artfully Layered from Stampin' Up! by StampinByHannah

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.
