You Made Me Happy card using Sunshine and Rainbows Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! Saleabration with StampinByHannah

This card is super simple to put together. The trickiest bit was making sure that the sentiment was perfectly straight on the card (not something I usually worry about!). However, this is super easy with the Stamparatus. I will admit that I don’t reach for this tool all that often, however, since I made this card I’ve reached for it more and more. Its so handy!

Inspire.Create.Challenge #107 | Birthday Rainbow of Happiness

Happy New Year! This week Inspire.Create.Challenge is back with a theme; Birthday. I will admit that this is partly due to the fact that it is my birthday this week, but also January is a great time to make a bunch of birthday cards to last you all year long.

The Stampin’ Up! January-June catalogue arrives on Tuesday, so today is a bit of sneak peak of one of the new stamp and die bundles, paired with one of my favourite Annual Catalogue sets for the sentiment. The Rainbow of Happiness stamp set and die bundle give you a heap of different rainbow sizes and styles, although the one on this card just uses die cuts.

Handmade rainbow birthday card using Rainbow of Happiness from Stampin' Up! with StampinByhannah

The Designer Series Paper in the background of this card is available for FREE from Tuesday as part of Sale-a-bration, and was the inspiration behind the colour combination on this card. But, it did need turning down a bit behind the die cuts so I added a layer of Vellum.

The sentiment is taken from Artistically Inked, stamped in Mango Melody, and die cut using the stitched rectangles dies.

Inspire.Create.Challenge #106 | Colour Challenge with Blessing of Home

This week’s Inspire.Create.Challenge Colour Challenge is a tricky one; Cinnamon Cider, Crumb Cake and Early Espresso. I reached for some new products that are coming in January; Blessing of Home and the coordinating Designer Series Paper for this one, mostly because the paper has Cinnamon Cider already in it. This card isn’t my usual style, however I really like the overall effect.

The flower image was stamped in Crumb Cake, and the coloured using the 3 challenge colours and a Blender Pen. Finished with a trio of Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots, and one of the very cute Bumblebee trinkets (both of which are already available)

Hop over to the Inspire.Create blog to see what the rest of the Design Team have created with this unusual Colour Combination!

Inspire.Create.Challenge #104 | Bright and Bold!

Hello! Yes… 2 blog posts in one weekend from me, that’s almost unheard of recently. However, I recently attended a Stampin’ Up! event and have the fire back in my belly, my crafting itch has got the better of me for the time being and I am loving sharing again. I am hoping to maybe hop onto some Facebook Live’s again soon (now that the babies are both sleeping better…. but I will let you know when I have that in my diary!).

Anyway, enough rambling, this week’s Inspire.Create.Challenge is a theme “Bright and Bold!” and so I reached for a rainbow and the Brights collection of colours.

Bright and bold card using Patterned Paper from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

To create this card you will need:


I do need to admit here that the holes in the banners are punched with a retired handheld punch, but you could use a Take Your Pick tool instead.

Each banner piece is 2 x 4.5 cm in size, and then I hand cut the banner ends using my Paper Snips. They are then popped up on Dimensionals to give them a little bit of life on the card.

Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah! If it’s your first time here, please consider subscribing to the blog or my emails to hear more from me, or checking out my Instagram where I post a new project (almost) daily.

This month’s InspireINK challenge was a really challenge for me…. so much that I choose to CASE a project from a very talented demonstrator, who is MUCH better at 3D crafting than me! However, I then managed to put the bag together upside down, so this is my Oops project, but I still think its a great project and so decided to share it anyway!

Inspire.Create.Challenge #103 | Colour with Christmas Season

Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah for this week’s Inspire.Create.Challenge! This week is a fabulous colour combination, very festive, and so I’ve made this fun Christmas Card using the Christmas Season bundle and In Colour Designer Series Paper.

I did also add a touch of gold to this one, because I just cant resist a bit of gold embossing with a classic Christmas colour combination like this one.

The Christmas Season stamp set is also available as a bundle with the fabulous Seasonal Labels dies which I have used on this card not only for the white label die cut, but also to die cut the leaves and berries too

Don’t forget to head over to the Inspire.Create blog to see the rest of the Design Team’s creation with this colour combination and to add you own makes too!
