So, today’s Inspire.Create.Challenge is to use a card by the lovely Jo Blackman as inspiration. Jo’s card uses some fabulous pieces of Designer Series Paper, but I’m currently in a ‘need a quick card in a hurry’ phase of crafting, and so instead of cutting all that paper, I found some paper with a similar printed effect instead!
Again I’ve reached for In Good Taste Designer Series Paper, which I am so happy to see is staying with us into the new catalogue! I am loving all the textures in this paper at the moment and I think it makes some really interesting projects
The sentiment is from Tasteful Touches, and is die cut from the coordinating Tasteful Labels dies

Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah! I’ve been a bit quiet recently. I had all the good intentions at the start of March to get back into regular content, but then it all went a bit strange, and my craft room was forgotten for a few weeks.
However, I was a little bit organised, and already had this card made ready for this week’s Inspire.Create.Challenge, so yay for me 3 weeks ago!
This weekends challenge is a sketch, and I love what the rest of the Design Team have created with it. Do pop over to the Inspire.Create blog to check them out and leave them all some love.
I’ve pulled out the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper for this one, I just love the textures. However, when I checked the inventory on this on Friday it was low in stock, and retiring, so do be quick if you don’t want to miss it!
The Tasteful Touches however, and the coordinating Tasteful Labels dies are both carrying forward to the new catalogue! Yay!
I’m not usually madly keen on fussy cutting, but I couldn’t resist cutting that flower… and then the sentiment just sort of happened to! It took a little while, but I totally think it was worth it this time!
On Wednesday I promised I’d share another card using the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper. I made this card in a bit of a hurry last weekend for my Father in Laws birthday, and I love that the In Good Taste papers allow you to create a simply, masculine card – quickly!
This card actually uses the Sweet Strawberry stamp set from the January-June Mini Catalogue. I am a bit of a sucker for a bit of heat embossing, and this leaf stamp was perfect for adding a little extra something to this simple card.
The sentiment is taken from the same stamp set; but the stamp normally reads ‘Happy Birthday you sweet thing’… not really what I wanted on my Father in Law’s birthday card. So, I masked off ‘you sweet thing’ with some Washi Tape when I inked it up, and so it only stamped Happy Birthday!
