Hello! Happy Friday! The weekend is in sight, and I have a box of fabulous new Stampin’ Up! goodies arriving today. What more could a girl want?! A Friday video? oh, go on then!
The Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper is currently on sale (15% off!) and I am really loving the collection of patterns. They aren’t all floral, there are also some stunning stripes, and pretty ginghams in there too! I have another card using this suite coming on Sunday too
This card was really simple to put together, it just took a bit of time to do all the die cutting. Top Tip though; put Adhesive Sheet on the back of your card stock before you die cut. This way, you basically create die cut, card stock stickers that you can quickly stick together. You could also use liquid glue, but this way is much less messy!
Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I hope to see you again soon
Hello folks! So, I promised I would get this video up on my blog, and thanks to two events over the weekend (InspireINK and Inspire.create.challenge) I knew it wouldn’t happen until today. I hope that’s ok though, better later than never! Anyway, I’ve started to do my weekly Facebook Live’s again on a Thursday evening, at about 19:30, and last week I shared 3 ways to use the fabulous Brushed Blooms stamp and die bundle and the True Love Designer Series Paper. Both of these can be found in the January-June mini catalogue. However both will retire at the end of June.
I love a black and white patterned paper, just something so clean about it, and paired with a single bright colour (Like Magenta Madness) it really pops. The 2020-2022 In Colours work fabulously with the True Love papers, because they are so bright, a real contrast.
The second card was a bit of a surprise to me. I usually avoid fussy cutting, but fussy cutting Designer Series Paper is so much easier than cutting cardstock that actually, I might do it more often! This card was also inspired by my friend Stacy Marsh and THIS card which she shared a few weeks ago.
One of the things I really love about the True Love Designer Series paper is the florals, can you imagine this print coloured with Blends. It would be lovely (side note; I do need to do that at some point…. soon!)
I am really enjoying getting back into my Facebook Lives, and dabbling in blogging again. Although, I am probably most active though over on Instagram. So, do pop over there and search for ‘StampinByHannah’ to see both crafting bits and some general life stuff too!
Thanks so much for stopping by StampinByHannah today and I hope to see you on Thursday evening at 19:30 over on my Facebook page!
Welcome to StampinByHannah, and thanks for stopping by on the InspireINK blog hop. This months challenge was a sketch, although I’ve gone slightly off plan (don’t I always!), and added a few extra elements.
I’ve been having heaps of fun with the Brushed Blooms bundle and True Love Designer Series Paper this week. I did a Facebook Live using these goodies on Thursday, and I have another card idea for you using the bundle tomorrow too!
This colour combination is so lovely; Basic Black, Basic White and Pool Party.
The sentiment is from Brushed Blooms, and I heat embossed it white before using the Stitched So Sweetly dies to cut it out.
The Designer Series Paper does most of the work on this card. I couldn’t choose just 3 patterns, so I added all my favourites instead!
Please use the links below to check out the other ladies ideas.
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.
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!
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!
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!
It’s a special day today for our family, its the day my husbands Great Nanny turns 100. Now, we would have dearly loved to be celebrating all together, but of course we can’t. I can, however provide her with two handmade birthday cards. So that is what I have done.
The first uses the brand new Pretty Perennials stamp set, and the coordinating dies. I absolutely LOVE this stamp set, a sweet floral stamp set that makes my heart happy. Here I’ve stamped it in Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry and Old Olive, and used the matching Perennial Petals dies to cut them out. I also added one of the more detailed dies to the large flower for a bit more interest.
The sentiment stamps are lovely in this stamp set too. Here I’ve stamped ‘Happy’ in Memento Black, and then heat embossed ‘birthday’ in white. The Designer Series Paper is called True Love, and is a lovely collection of black and white patterns and florals. The 100 is die cut using the Playful Alphabet from some retired Gold Glitter card stock.
I have a fun class coming in February using the Pretty Perennials bundle and the True Love Designer Series Paper, so do check back for that.
The second card uses both new Sale-a-bration goodies, as well as a retired gem. Now, I wouldn’t usually share a project that features a retired item, but I know so many people that have them (or similar) that I felt that I could.
This card uses the lovely Paper Blossoms Designer Series Paper which is currently available for free with a £45 spend.
The 100 is die cut from Petal Pink card stock, a colour which is featured in the Designer Series Paper, and layered over a vellum label cut from the Tasteful Labels dies.
This card is finished with the birthday sentiment, taken from Blossoms in Bloom.
I took part in a virtual retreat this weekend. With the dreaded virus, the usual in person event had to be cancelled, but instead of missing a year, we chose to take it online instead! I made more projects than I have in months, and had great fun!
One of the best parts of in person Stampin’ Up! events is project swaps, and so we did the same… just sent them in the post instead!
I chose to take part in the Designer Series Paper swap this time, and so had to make cards with paper as the main focus.
This card was really simple to put together, but looks really complicated. I cut the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper to 14.8 x 13.5 cm, so it was the same height as my card base, but a little wider. Then scored the paper on the right hand side at 3cm, and folded it back and put a spot of adhesive where I was going to add my sentiment label.
The card is finished with a die cut leaf from the Forever Flourishing dies, a label from the Painted Labels dies, and sentiment from the Forever Fern stamp set.
Hello! Welcome to the InspireINK Blog Hop this month. We have some fabulous 3D inspiration for you this time, and while 3D isn’t my speciality, I thought this the perfect opportunity to make a fun box and use up some of my collection of Designer Series Paper!
This very simple box is so easy to make, and uses one sheet of A4 card stock.
Card stock – Poppy Parade – 8-1/4 x 10-3/8″ (20 x 26 cm)
Score on the long side at – 2-1/2, 5, 7-1/2, 10, and 10-3/8″ (6, 12, 18, 24, 25 cm)
Score on the short side at – 3/8, 2-7/8, 5-3/8, and 7-7/8″ (1, 7, 13, and 19 cm)

Hey folks! I’ve been trying to make a conscious effort to use more Designer Series Paper on my cards recently, partly because I am LOVING the new patterns in this years Annual catalogue, and partly because when I cleared out the retired ones from last year I found a stack 2″ deep and 2 packs completely un-opened!
I’ve made cards using stripes of Designer Series Paper before, but I wanted to change it up a bit for this one. So, I cut 4 cm stripes of paper from a few different sheets of the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper, and then ripped over 1 cm ish of each piece. Each piece is actually only glued at the top, so you could add more dimension by curling them a little too!
The sentiment panel is die cut from the Stitched Shapes dies (I LOVE these!), and then stamped in Balmy Blue and Night of Navy. I actually fussy cut the anchor because I hadn’t got around to buying the dies yet! I have now though, because the Come Sail Away suite is the base for this months Crafty Selection Box. I’ll be sharing the full details of how to sign up on Saturday.
This card would make a perfect masculine encouragement card, but the ripped Designer Series Paper would work on just about any papers and for any occasion. What would you use it for?
