Inspire.Create.Challenge #119 | Botanical Layers and In Colours

Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah this weekend. This week’s Inspire.Create.Challenge is a colour combination… featuring the new 2022-2024 In Colours.

I LOVE these 5 colours, they are so bright and fun, and they work really well together too. Here I’ve used all 5 colours, and paired them with the fabulous Botanical Layers Bundle which is a Stamp and Vellum combination. I have a YouTube live planned with this one, because I think it’s so unusual, but really lovely to work with.

Thinking of You using Botanical Layers from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

This card has a Starry Sky card base, with a Basic White layer which I have added all 5 of those In Colours to using a Blending Brush. Then a layer of the Lovely Layers Vellum from that Botanical Layers bundle, which I have added some extra stamping to using the Botanical Layers Stamp set and some embossing power.

The sentiment is from the stamp stamp set, and is layered with a piece of the In Colour Glimmer Paper.

Head over to the Inspire.Create blog to see the rest of the Design Team’s creations and to add your own In Colour makes too!

Congratulations handmade floral card using Hues of Happiness from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

This card was born from a scrap! Can you believe that?! The Designer Series Paper is from Hues of Happiness and I have had great fun hacking it apart… and this piece just seemed perfect for this card.

The flowers are from Happiness Abounds, and are stamped in Night of Navy for a really simple outlined look, then I’ve finished this card with a fussy cut sentiment and a trio of Glossy Dots!

Inspire.Create.Challenge #114 | Inspiration with Blessings of Home from Stampin’ Up!

Welcome to StampinByHannah today for a fabulous inspiration challenge with Inspire.Create.Challenges. This week’s challenge is inspired by the lovely Kate Bolt, hop over to the Inspire.Create.Challenges blog to see the original inspiration card.

I’ve used Kate’s card as a sketch, but also as inspiration to use the Heart and Home suite. I LOVE this suite, particularly the Designer Series Paper… although I haven’t used it on this card.

To cretae this card you will need:


Usually you would use Memento to stamp when you’re colouring with Stampin’ Blends, however as Stampin’ Up! inks are water based they also work with the markers. So, here I’ve stamped the floral image 4 times in Basic Gray ink, and then coloured with Stampin’ Blends

Inspire.Create.Challenge #113 | Sketch Challenge

Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah this week. I am so sorry that I’ve been a bit quiet this month, things have been a little busy at home and I’ve been a bit distracted. Anyway, today sees the start of a new Inspire.Create.Challenge. Hop over to the blog to see the sketch, and check out what the rest of the Design Team have created before you make your own project.

Seeing as today is Mother’s day today, I thought it only right that I share the cards I made for my mum and mother-in-law this year. I clearly had the sketch in my head when I made these, although I wouldn’t usually share these cards here. I’ve had a bit of creative block recently, and despite making several cards this week, these were the first I actually liked! Don’t you hate it when you cant seem to make anything nice?!

These cards use the Simply Succulents stamp set and Potted Succulents dies, which I am so excited to see carrying over into the new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue.

Inspire.Create.Challenge #112 | Farewell 2020-2022 In Colours!

Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah today. This week Inspire.Create.Challenge are celebrating our out-going In Colours; Bumblebee, Cinnamon Cider, Just Jade, Magenta Madness and Misty Moonlight. I really will miss these colours when they leave us at the end of April. They are so bright and fun. I haven’t used all 5 of them together on a card in ages, but I actually have 2 cards with this colour combination to share with you this week. Check my Instagram later in the week for my second card!

I love to layer colour, actually I just LOVE colour (and layering!) and so the natural choice was for me to reach for the Hello Beautiful Stamp Set to create a fun layered stamped card today. This stamp set is so cool, with lots of little pieces to add texture and interest, as well as those big smudge style stamps.

To create this card you will need:

I absolutely adore this Product Suite; Hand-Penned, for this Designer Series Paper and the super pretty Stamp set. I am lover of watercolour and so I stamped this image on watercolour paper and then watercoloured it before using the coordinating dies to cut it out.
