Ink blending | Facebook Live Replay

So, this week’s Facebook Live is totally inspired by a card I made at a team virtual crafty retreat last weekend. I haven’t done Ink Blending for ages, and its a technique I really love, so I thought I would share it with you today.

Bonus Days

Just before we get to the video, I just want to let you know about Bonus Days! Every time you shop this month, and spend £45 (or multiples of £45) you earn vouchers to spend next month! AND, you know what happens next month? The new August-December Mini catalogue launches, SO you could get a bunch of fun Christmas crafty goodies for free! Isn’t that cool?!

Ink Blending

Today’s card was inspired by a card by Martin Stone, who shared this fun Ink Blending technique with the team over the weekend.

Check out the Facebook Live video below to see how it was made. Just a quick warning, I did have some technical difficulties in this video, in actual fact it was two separate Lives but I have stitched them together for the YouTube version.

Facebook Live | Good Morning Magnolia Thank You Card

Hey folks! I am super excited to be back doing some Facebook Lives! I asked on Facebook a few weeks ago about whether you’d prefer to see regular videos on YouTube or random Facebook Lives, and most people seemed to want more Lives. So, I got a bit of time this morning while James took Niamh for her first set of vaccinations (which I really didn’t want to go to!), and thought I’d jump on and share this pretty Good Morning Magnolia Thank You card with you.

I’m not going to say too much about how this card came together, as you can see that on the Facebook Live video.

But I did want to link to some information about the offers I mentioned in the video

Bonus Days and Extra Extra are the two offers this month from Stampin’ Up!

My July Retreat in a Box and Crafternoon for MIND books close on Sunday, as well as my In Colour Club! But this month’s Code Club is open until the 28th July.

March Facebook Live Online Class | Painted Seasons!

Oh I am super excited to share this with you this afternoon! I been toying with the idea of doing some extra classes for a while, and with the Sale-a-bration 2nd Release being so gorgeous I couldn’t resist making a class out of it!

This fabulous stamp and Designer Series Paper bundle is FREE with a £90 order, and it has some coordinating framelits coming on the 1st March too!

Painted Seasons Online Card Class Cardstock Pack from StampinByHannah

There are 2 options for this class; either Class ONLY or Class and Cards stock. I’ve chosen NOT to include the stamps for several reasons, 1. I understand that the £90 price point is high, and I want as many of you as possible to join in with this class, 2. I’ve designed the class around sketches, and so you could use any stamps you have to make some stunning cards!

Card stock pack includes 10 pre-cut and scored card bases, along with mats, layers and die cut pieces for the cards in this class, PLUS 5 Whisper White Envelopes. Every pack also includes a fabulous gift from me!

Class and Card stock Pack – Access to the Facebook Group, Facebook Live video, and downloads of sketches and card designs using 2 stamp and die bundles – PLUS card stock to make 10 cards, die cuts and envelopes and Postage – £20

The Painted Season’s Bundle is available for FREE when you spend £90 between now and the end of March (while stocks last) and includes a gorgeous stamp set and a pack of coordinating Designer Series Paper. Designed to take you through a full 12 months of occasions there are no sentiments, but I’ve paired it with the fun Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set from the Spring Summer catalogue.

This Designer Series Paper is so pretty, it has 4 seasonal prints on one side and 4 generic patterns on the other and all feature a lovely watercolour wash effect too.

This card also features the lovely new Country Floral Embossing Folder (Free with a £45 order during Sale-a-bration). This folder is one of those thicker ones, so if gives you a whole heap of dimension and works so well with a pretty floral like this.

Facebook Live | Hey Love Treat Bags

I am in love with the cute Hey Love stamp set, and these adorable Treat bags which Stampin’ Up! have featured as a You Can Make It in the Spring Summer Catalogue. I love these You Can Make It ideas; quick and easy makes complete with a shopping list! Awesome! You can find them in each catalogue, or HERE in my Stampin’ Up! webstore

Fun Valentines Treat Bags using Hey Love from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah for Facebook Live

The shopping list for these cute bags can be found at the bottom of this post, but I have also added a few extra goodies that I used to make these my own.

The cute Gorilla (now known as Paul!) is really easy to colour with Stampin’ Blends. Actually, there are only two colours of Blends pens used on this treat bags; Light Smoky Slate and Light Flirty Flamingo. To add dimension each Paul is outlined first with the Smoky Slate, then coloured in with the same pen. To add more dimension I also added an extra layer of colour to areas that would be in shadow.

Flowing Fountain and Cling Mount Stamps | Facebook Live

Hello! well… I usually post these blog posts slightly earlier in the day, but I’ve been busy prepping for my first Card Class of 2019 on Tuesday, filming a couple of tutorials and taking a bunch of pictures for upcoming blog posts… so things have been a little delayed today.

It’s Sunday, Facebook Live day here at StampinByHannah, and this week I thought I would give you some of my Cling Mount Stamp Top Tips!

Stampin’ Up! changed the formulation of the stickers that go on the backs of your red rubber stamps with the launch of the Spring Summer catalogue. These new Cling stamps are SUPER sticky, so there is NO chance that your going to have that awful moment where your freshly inked stamp falls off the block onto your 99% completed project ever again.

Cling Mount Top Tips

  1. Get those stickers on your Stamps! I NEVER used the clear mount stickers (because they just didn’t work!) but these are ace
  2. Once you’ve got your sticker on the stamp, its not coming back off, so use the outside edges of the stamp to ensure perfect alignment of the sticker and the stamp
  3. New Cling stickers are SUPER sticky; I find that removing some of the inital stickiness by putting the stamp on and off of your trousers / top / cardigan can be useful
  4. Add a little bit of Washi Tape to one end of your new Cling stickers to help you get your stamps back off your blocks. Please do not that the stickers are so sticky that you are at risk of ripping your stamps when taking them off of blocks or out of the case
  5. Use the flat end of your Take Your Pick tool to get your stamps off your block
  6. Have lots of fun using them!

I only made one card on this morning’s Facebook Live, but I do think it was a good one…

Quick and Easy card using Flowing Fountain from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

Flowing Fountain is one of those stamp set in the catalogue that is so easily missed, which is such a shame because it’s so pretty. I’ve actually taken inspiration from the catalogue for this card, as it uses the same technique as used by Stampin’ Up!

Sale-a-bration | Facebook Live

Oh yes, it’s Sunday, and that only means on thing here at StampinByHannah…. it’s Facebook Live Day!

Cute Notecard using Hello Cupcake Stamp Set FREE during Sale-a-bration from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

This week I thought I would take the opportunity to recap this year’s Sale-a-bration offers… and make 3 cards using the Hello Cupcake Stamp set.

This first card was my attempt at #simplestamping. I think this card would make a great quick make for that neighbours birthday you’ve forgotten, or change the sentiment for a fun Thank you or Just because card for your milkman or UPS man!

Handmade Birthday Card using Hello Cupcake from Stampin' Up! Sale-a-bration 2019 with StampinByHannah

The second card was a slightly stepped up version of that cute note card. I swapped the card base for Mint Macaron Card Stock and added a layer of Very Vanilla. If you want to know my card measurements, I almost always us the same, you can find the over on my Standard Card Measurements Page.

I mentioned in the video there are 3 parts to Sale-a-bration:

  1. Shop – Ever time you spend £45 (on anything on the Stampin’ Up! website) between now and the end of March, you earn a Sale-a-bration credits which you can swap in for fun Stamp Sets like the cute Hello Cupcake Set I used today. There are 2 items that require 2 credits, or a £90 spend at the back of the Sale-a-bration booklet
  2. Host – Earn extra Stampin’ Rewards when you spend over £200 or host a party that spends over the same amount
  3. Join – Become a part of Stampin’ Up!, choose £170 worth of goodies and pay just £99 (or spend an extra £26 and get the GORGEOUS Craft and Carry Tote too!) and then get at least 20% discount on all purchases, take part in team events (like yesterday’s Blog Hop) or just be a happy shopper!

The 3rd card is further stepped up, with a fussy cut cupcake and embossed circle… but it’s not quite as stepped up and my original design which also has Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper and a heat embossed sentiment.

Facebook Live | Butterfly Gala

I had SO much fun with the Brand New Butterfly Gala stamp and punch bundle on this mornings Facebook Live! I do a Facebook Live every Sunday… this week was a little rushed as I was also in the middle of icing a cake and prepping for a Sunday Roast for 10 people… but I didn’t want to miss my first Facebook Live of 2019!

This week I have been so inspired by the Butterfly Gala stamp set, particularly because it has a fabulous matching punch!

Hand made Butterfly Thank You Card  using Butterfly Gala from Stampin' Up! for Facebook Live with StampinByHannah

The first card I made this was was this simply stamped Thank You card, CASE’d from THIS CARD made by my lovely friend Verity! Verity made this card using Black card stock and ink, but I have to say I’m a much bigger fan of something a little softer (most of the time) and so swapped the Basic Black for Night of Navy. Check out the video for how I coloured those butterflies!

Facebook Live

Butterfly Gala is part of the Gingham Gala suite in the new Stampin’ Up! Spring Summer Catalogue. I have a fun Launch Party taking place next weekend (with Make and Takes that I will share next week!), and a fun Card Class using the suite on the 22nd January too! I would LOVE to see you at my 2019 events

Tone on Tone stamping with Butterfly Gala from Stampin' Up! with Facebook Live with StampinByHannah

The second card today was inspired by my other friend Jill, who made THIS CARD back in December. I loved the look of the Butterflies stacked on top of each other on Jill’s card, and just had to give it a StampinByHannah twist. Here the 6 butterflies are stamped Tone on Tone in 3 colours; Blushing Bride, So Saffron and Balmy Blue. I really love this soft look, not something that would be in my usual style!
