StampinByHannah Make It Monday Quick and Simple with Rooted in Nature

Make It Monday banner

I love a quick and simple card, one that you can whip up in a snap, one that looks good no matter what stamp set you use (as long as it a Stampin’ Up! set, obviously!), and one that you can use for a multitude of different occasions. I think that this card fits that bill.

I have been having loads of fun using the Nature’s Poem Suite this month, while it’s my fabulous Suite Share! You can still get your share HERE! My suite shares change every month and feature a fun mix of Designer Series Paper, Card stocks, ribbons and embellishments, and while the stamps and dies aren’t included as standard you can, of course, add them as an extra.

This card had a lovely colour combination; Blackberry Bliss, Gray Granite and Mossy Meadow, with a Whisper White base. Colours are super important when your making simple cards like this one, sticking to a handful of colours is an easy way of keeping things simple, coordinated and fresh.

Team Retreat | Mini Origami Chocolate Boxes

StampinByHannah Team Retreat Mini Origami Chocolate Boxes

Pootlers Team Photo September 2018

Yesterday I shared the mountain of swaps I received from the lovely ladies in that photo at our recent Team Retreat in Manchester. Today, I thought I would share the swap I gave them!

I am a big believer in keeping things simple…. especially when you have to make 50 of something. So, I resized a fun box I shared a few weeks ago to fit a popular hazelnut filled chocolate

Fun no glue mini box using Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper

These cute little boxes are so quick and easy to make. In fact, I recently had to attend a train the trainer day as part of my day job where we had to teach each other a skill…. and I taught these! The other ladies where mesmerised as a flat sheet of paper became a fun and useful box!

Mini Origami Chocolate boxes using Tea Room Designer Series paper from Stampin' Up!

These boxes use the fun Tea Room Speciality Designer Series Paper, as it’s a lighter weight that the standard Stampin’ Up! Paper it’s easier to create the fun origami folds of this box.

Want to join me for the next Team Event? You Can! I am always looking for new team members, you can find all the information about becoming a part of Stampin’ Up! on my Join My Team Page or if you have questions, check out my Joining FAQ!

Inspire.Create.Challenge Theme challenge Celebrate Card using Frosted florals Designer Series paper from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah Inspire.Create.Challenge 027 Celebrate (our 1st anniversary!!)

Inspire.Create.Challenge 027 Celebrate

Wow! I have just written the Challenge blog post before I’ve written this one… and I got SO excited! I cannot believe that it’s now been a year since I started this fabulous challenge. So, before I get into the main blog post, I just want to reach out and give you all big squishy hugs of Thanks for sticking with us, taking part, leaving comments and more! We have NO plans to stop…. in fact, I’ve just set the team all the challenges up until Christmas!

Inspire.Create.Challenge Stampin' Up! Challenge Blog Theme Challenge Celebrate Theme Floral Celebrate Card using Stampin' Up! products

In order to Celebrate I thought I would use my favourite Designer Series Paper from the new Autumn Winter Catalogue. I am in LOVE with this Frosted Florals Designer Series Paper, 1. its floral and watercolour… and 2. its SHIMMERY! It’s so pretty… saying that I have covered most of it with a piece of Vellum, but you can still see the paper, so I think that’s ok!

There actually isn’t any stamping on this card, rather the sentiment is die cut using the Celebrate You thinlits. I haven’t pulled these out for ages, which is a shame really because they are lovely!

This card is finished with a trio of Glitter Enamel Dots.

Dad’s Birthday Card using Best Route from Stampin’ Up!

Fun Boys Birthday Card using Best Route Designer Series paper from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah Dad’s Birthday Card using Best Route from Stampin’ Up!

 

Oh yes, today is my Dad’s birthday…. and because I gave him his card last night, I thought I would be really timely and share his card with you today. Men’s cards are always a little tricky, but I think we have the perfect Designer Series Paper Assistance this year; Best Route!

Simple Guys Birthday Card using Best Route from Stampin' Up!

I recently used the same paper on a card for my Brother-in-Law, isn’t it fun that we can create multiple difficult cards with the same products and they look totally different?! I love the colour combination in this paper; Blueberry Bushel, Mango Melody and Gray Granite…. and I’ve used the same colours in the card stock and stamping.

The sentiment is taken from Picture Perfect Birthday; I LOVE this set, it’s perfect for simple birthday cards, and therefore great for guys too!

As usual with family cards I HAD to pimp the inside with some more layers of Designer Series Paper and a hint of stamping too

Make It Monday | Dashing Along Designer Series Paper…

Simple Christmas Card using Designer Series Paper and Timeless Tidings from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah Make It Monday | Dashing Along Designer Series Paper…

Make It Monday banner

So, today is Make It Monday, and I do have a video….. but I don’t actually have a card to make! I do have 3 cards to share with you though.

September sees a fun offer; Dashing Along Designer Series Paper is available for FREE when you place an order of £200. It is added automatically to your basket when you shop online. OR, you could also bag a pack of this stunning paper if you host a party which orders over the same amount.

Fun Christmas Card using Patterned Paper with Dashing Along DSP from Stampin' Up!

This pack of Designer Series Paper contains 12 sheets, 4 of each of 3 double sided designs. It is designed to coordinate with the Dashing Deer Stamp and Die Bundle…. but of course, I didn’t grab that one in my Autumn Winter order did I?! Silly me! So, instead, I thought I would share how easily this Designer Series Paper coordinates with some of the other Stamp Sets in the catalogue.

The red card uses the fun Timeless Tidings stamp set that matches the Timeless Tidings Card Kit (still need to have a go at putting those together!), while the card with the strips of Designer Series Paper uses the Feathers and Frost stamp set.

Merry Christmas card using Merry Die Cut from Stampin' Up!

This 3rd card, I think is my favourite, pairs the Dashing Along Designer Series Paper with the Merry Christmas To All Stamp and Die Bundle and a piece of that stunning Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper.

Pretty Floral Christmas Card using First Frost from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah Pootlers Blop Hop | Welcome Autumn / Winter 2018!

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

Welcome to the Pootler’s Blog Hop! This time we are celebrating the launch of the 2018 Autumn Winter Catalogue… usually I get a sneaky peak of everyone’s projects as I coordinate the hop, but not this time, so I cannot WAIT to join you in hopping around everyone’s creations!

First Frost Christmas Card for the Pootlers Team Blog hop using Stampin' Up! products

My absolute favourite suite in this years Autumn Winter Catalogue is the Frosted Floral Suite… it’s a pretty mix of watercolour effect stamps, gorgeous colours and shimmery Designer Series Paper! Yes… I did say that right; Shimmery Designer Series Paper! and Yes, you NEED to see it in real life. So. Pretty!

The flowers and leaves are stamped in Blackberry Bliss, Blushing Bride and Mint Macaron; which match perfectly with the colours in the Designer Series paper… or they did until I turned the paper over to use the back side, but I love the Neutral coloured paper against the hand stamped flowers.

Non-traditional Christmas Card using First Frost from Stampin' Up!

The sentiment is die cut using the coordinating die set and the card is completed with a splattering of Share What You Love Artisan Pearls

Animal Outing Baby Girl Card

Baby girl card using Animal Outings from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah Animal Outing Baby Girl Card

 

So, I was made an Auntie for the first time last week! Very exciting, although we haven’t had chance to meet baby Maisie just yet… I did make her a card to send with a pack of cute baby grows.

Baby girl card using Animal Outings from Stampin' Up!

I used the Animal Outings stamp set for this very soft card, with a strip of Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper. The Kangaroo was stamped in Basic Grey ink, and then coloured with Watercolour Pencils and blended with a damp paint brush. I will admit that I used the retired Archival Basic Grey pad which works well with Watercolour and doesn’t smudge, but you could use Stazon stamped off or Basic Grey over laid with Clear Stampin Emboss Powder.

Animal Outings Baby Card using Stampin' Up! products

As traditional with family cards I stamped the inside too and added another strip of the Designer Series Paper

StampinByHannah Inspire.Create.Challenge #026 | Merry Christmas To All

Inspire.Create.Challenge 026 Sketch Challenge using Stampin' up! products

I have told you all before how much I LOVE a sketch challenge… and I cannot wait to see what the rest of the Design Team do with this one! I have been pondering on it for a while; trying to work out what I was going to do with that Heart image… in the end I’ve chosen to change it to a circle and die cut it out.

How to make a fun Christmas Card using Merry Christmas to All from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

I have been playing around with Designer Series Paper a fair bit recently, I made THIS card for my Brother in Law last week and used a piece of Designer Series Paper to cover the entire front of the card. I liked the effect so much I thought I would do the same here with this stunning Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper.

The Merry Christmas sentiment is taken from the new Merry Christmas To All Stamp and die bundle. How perfect is that glitter-y die cut?! To adhere it to the card, I added some Multi-purpose Adhesive Sheet to the back of the Glimmer Paper before it was die cut, the adhered it over the top of the die cut circle. To stop it sticky were I didn’t want it to, I covered uncovered adhesive with powder from my Embossing Buddy.

Merry Christmas Die Cut Card using Stampin' Up! products with StampinByHannah

The sentiment is completed with the Christmas heat embossed in White onto a scrap of Tranquil Tide card stock.

Check out the rest of the Inspire.Create.Challenge Design Team’s creations over on the blog, and enter you projects using the sketch to!
