Quick and fun card using Flowering Rain Boots

Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah today, I’m trying really hard to get back into the swing of regular videos on a Friday. I managed to film 2 videos last weekend, so you have at least another video next week! Anyway, today’s card is a cute card using the Flowering Rain Boots stamp set from the January-June Mini Catalogue.

Quick and easy card using Flowering Rain Boots from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

I had to have this stamp set with the Wellie boots on, just because Niamh (who is 2 and a half) absolutely LOVES a Wellington boot. But I have used this set more than I expected, AND this card doesn’t have a boot in sight!

To create this card you will need:

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 #084 | Ink Blended Thank You Card

Welcome to StampinByHannah today, I am always so grateful for your visit. Today it’s time for another Inspire.Create.Challenge, and this week we have a fabulous colour challenge for you all.

Stampin' Up! Valentines Colour combination for Inspire.Create.Challenge

I am often inspired by the colour combinations in the Stampin’ Up! catalogue, and this one was taken from the Valentines suite this year. Love You Always can be used for so much more than Valentines though, and I thought it a good time (on Valentines day) to give you a heap of inspiration with the suite that’s not totally loved up!

Pretty Ink Blended Thank You card using True Love Designer Series paper from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

I shared a couple of Ink Blended cards on Friday, and this card also used the Blending Brushes to create this pretty background. I took a piece of the True Love Designer Series Paper, and blended the two pink tones; Blushing Bride and Rococo Rose using the Stampin’ Up! Blending Brushes.

This Designer Series Paper is so pretty! I love purely Black and White Designer Series Paper packs, just for this reason; being able to add your own colours and totally change the look and feel of it. It’s so fun!

Heat Embossed Thank you card using Heal your Heart from Stampin' Up! Sale-a-bration with StampinByHannah

The sentiment on this card is taken from the Heal You Heart Stamp Set which is currently FREE with a £45 order during Sale-a-bration. I’ve heat embossed it onto a die cut piece of Vellum, and layered it over a piece of Sahara Sand card stock.

The card is finished with a trio of the Gilded Gems

Don’t forget to pop over to the Inspire.Create.Challenge blog to see the rest of the Design Teams creations and to add your own makes using this lovely colour combination too!

Just For You Sweet Strawberry

The Sweet Strawberry stamp and punch bundle is one of my favourites from this years January-June Mini Catalogue. The stamp set includes both the outline images and solid stamps for strawberries, leaves and flowers, so you can quickly ‘colour in’ the images, with just a stamp!

The strawberries here were stamped in Stazon ink onto watercolour paper. Then I used the solid strawberry stamps to add the Poppy Parade colour. I did then spritz these with water, but to be honest I think you could have done away with that step as it doesn’t add a whole lot to the overall finished card (I just love watercolour effects!)

Sweet Strawberry Just for you card using Designer Series paper from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

The Designer Series Paper on this card is FREE during Sale-a-bration when you spend £90, and it comes with another coordinating stamp set too! The Designer Series Paper includes images of fruit, florals and patterns, and is so fabulously versitile, it would even work for guy cards.

Quick Designer Series Paper card using Berry Blessings from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

Do you have a card layout you keep coming back to? I certainly do, and this is one of them, with the Designer Series Paper folded back on one side so you can see both sides of the paper at once. I LOVE this one using the Coming Home Bundle, or THIS one using Forever Fern.

The strawberries were added with a punch circle on Vellum with Dimensionals, and then the sentiment was simply stamped in black ink.

Die Cut background using Simply Succulents

Sometimes a card appears in your minds eye even before you’ve bought the stamp set or dies. This is one of those cards. I try to have a few card ideas in my head before I order a stamp set, so that I know that I can get plenty of use out of it. I don’t always manage control my heart, and some stamp sets just land in my craft room, but I try!

Die Cut Background using Simply Succulents and Potted Succulents from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

The Simply Succulents bundle includes this fabulous background die. However, it is sized for US card sizes, and so doesn’t quite fit the front of one of our UK cards. But I think I’ve managed to make it work here.

Before cutting this intricate die, I added a piece of Adhesive Sheet. This adds glue to the entire piece of card stock, and so makes it much easier to adhere to the card front. The ombre effect was super easy to create as well, using a piece of the Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper which is free with a £45 order during Sale-a-bration.

Die cut thinking of you card using Simply Succulents from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

The Sentiment is taken from the Simply Succulent stamp set and die cut with another one of the Potted Succulents dies.

Inspire.Create.Challenge #083 | Quick and Easy birthday with Darling Donkeys

Hi all! Gosh, it’s been a mad couple of weeks. Poor baby boy had to have his 8 week vaccinations, and that’s basically had me sat on the sofa cuddling him for the past week, leaving me with no time to craft. However, I did manage to find 10 minutes a couple of weekends ago to have a quick colour of the fabulously fun Darling Donkeys for this weeks Inspire.Create.Challenge.

The theme this time around is ‘Cute Critters’ and we have so many in the Stampin’ Up! catalogues at the moment, I can’t wait to see what you all come up with.

This Donkey is stamped in Memento Black ink, and coloured using both Light and Dark Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends, with a hint of Dark Mossy Meadow and Dark Poppy Parade for that rose.

Darling Donkeys is one of the current Sale-a-bration stamp sets, and is available for free when you spend £45 before the end of February.

I’ve paired this chap with some of the new Colour Family Designer Series Paper in Gray Granite. This paper will be available in the next Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue, or you can get it now if you grab a Stampin’ Up! Starter Kit.

Do check out the Inspire.Create.Challenge blog for more inspiration and to add your own Critter Creations!

Two big Birthday Cards….

It’s a special day today for our family, its the day my husbands Great Nanny turns 100. Now, we would have dearly loved to be celebrating all together, but of course we can’t. I can, however provide her with two handmade birthday cards. So that is what I have done.

The first uses the brand new Pretty Perennials stamp set, and the coordinating dies. I absolutely LOVE this stamp set, a sweet floral stamp set that makes my heart happy. Here I’ve stamped it in Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry and Old Olive, and used the matching Perennial Petals dies to cut them out. I also added one of the more detailed dies to the large flower for a bit more interest.

The sentiment stamps are lovely in this stamp set too. Here I’ve stamped ‘Happy’ in Memento Black, and then heat embossed ‘birthday’ in white. The Designer Series Paper is called True Love, and is a lovely collection of black and white patterns and florals. The 100 is die cut using the Playful Alphabet from some retired Gold Glitter card stock.

I have a fun class coming in February using the Pretty Perennials bundle and the True Love Designer Series Paper, so do check back for that.

The second card uses both new Sale-a-bration goodies, as well as a retired gem. Now, I wouldn’t usually share a project that features a retired item, but I know so many people that have them (or similar) that I felt that I could.

This card uses the lovely Paper Blossoms Designer Series Paper which is currently available for free with a £45 spend.

The 100 is die cut from Petal Pink card stock, a colour which is featured in the Designer Series Paper, and layered over a vellum label cut from the Tasteful Labels dies.

This card is finished with the birthday sentiment, taken from Blossoms in Bloom.

Time to Sale-a-brate Berry Blessings with the Pootlers Blog Hop!

Welcome to StampinByHannah and the first Pootlers Team Blog Hop of 2021! This time we’re sharing a heap of projects using the new Sale-a-bration gifts.

There are a bunch of really cool Stamp Sets and Designer Series Paper packs that you can currently receive for FREE with an order of over £45! How cool is that?!

Berry Blessings

I thought I would create with the Berry Blessings stamp set today. This stamp set comes with a pack of Designer Series Paper and so requires a £90 spend, BUT it also coordinates with the Sweet Strawberry stamp set and punch bundle from the new Mini Catalogue!

Quick and simply card using Berry Blessings from Stampin' Up! Sale-a-bration 2021 with StampinByHannah

One of the reasons I love this stamp set (and Sweet Strawberry) is that you don’t need to get the markers out to colour the images… as they all have a outline stamp and then a filled stamp to colour the image!

This card uses Misty Moonlight for the card base and the blueberries, and Pear Pizzazz for the leaves and sentiment.

Simple Stamping using Berry Blessings FREE during Sale-a-bration 2021 from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

I couldn’t pass the opportunity to stamp with blueberries either… they are my daughters absolute favourite fruit, I think she’d eat them at every meal if she could!
