Inspire.Create.Challenge #071 | Ornately Green Thanks

Time for another Inspire.Create.Challenge, and this week its a sketch. I do love a sketch challenge, and usually I aim to change some aspect. But this week, I’ve kept things simple, and let the beautiful Ornate Garden Designer Series Paper do all the talking.

Ornate Garden Designer Series Paper Thank you card using Stampin' Up! products with StampinByHannah

I am not usually a green person, but I realised at the weekend that I’ve been using a lot of green recently. I think it’s mainly because both of the packs of Designer Series Paper in my collection are both floral / leafy prints, and this has led me to create green cards.

The Ornate Garden Designer Series Paper has several pieces with gold foiling, and I love this simple Old Olive and Gold colour combination.

Please pop over to the Inspire.Create.Challenge blog and see what the other members of the Design Team have been creating based on the sketch, and add your own projects to!

Pootlers Blog Hop | Hello Forever Greenery!

Join the Number 1 Stampin' Up! Team in the UK

Hi! Welcome to StampinByHannah and the Pootlers Team Blog Hop! I hope that you enjoy your trip around the team’s blogs today and get LOTS of inspiration for all those new goodies in the Brand New Stampin’ Up! Annual catalogue!

Hello Forever Greenery card using Stampin' Up! Forever Greenery suite for Pootles team blog hop with StampinByHannah

When I saw this suite in the new catalogue, I fell in LOVE. I am not usually a very ‘green’ person, I prefer a purple, or blue, but there is just something about the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper that I couldn’t say no to!

This card came together pretty quickly, for all it looks complicated. I had been randomly stamping leaves, and had quite a collection layered on my desk. I moved them from my desk to on top of this stripey strip of Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper, and added some of the gold leaves from the Forever Gold Laser Cut Specialty paper.

With such a busy panel on the left hand side, a simple ‘Hello’ sentiment was perfect for the bottom right hand corner as a finish.

Inspire.Create.Challenge #070 | Watercolour with Ornate Style!

This week’s Inspire.Create.Challenge is a fun colour combination (although it did hurt my head a little bit trying to come up with a card this week!).

Inspire.Create.Challenge cardmaking colour challenge Stampin' Up!
Night of Navy, Rich Razzleberry, Coastal Cabana

I’d been in my craft room for a while before I managed to make this card. I’d been trying to sort out my catalogues ready to post, and had YouTube on in the background, and I’m sure whichever card maker I was “watching” did something with watercolour. And so that sort of led me to create this;

watercolour Thank you card using Ornate Style from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

This pretty floral stamp is from the Ornate Style Stamp set, our sneaky peak of the new Annual catalogue. Here I’ve stamped it in Versamark onto Watercolour Paper and heat embossed it with clear powder before watercolouring it with the colours from the challenge.

Pretty floral watercolour card using Ornate Garden from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

I wanted to keep the sentiment pretty simple, leaving the focus on the watercolouring. The ‘Thanks’ is taken from the other stamp set in the Ornate Garden Suite, Ornate Thanks. It is simply stamped onto a flag of Vellum with Night of Navy ink. I did leave this to dry for several hours before adding it to the card.

Do pop over to the Inspire.Create Blog to check out what the rest of the Design Team have been creating with this fun colour combination, and add your own makes too!

In Colour Club 2020

Hello!

Oh my gosh, I cannot believe that the new Stampin’ Up! Annual catalogue launches next week!

I’ve spent the last few days (slowly) sorting catalogues, labelling, printing and stuffing ready to get them to the Post Office on Wednesday. I am super exciting for this catalogue, as it also sees a bit of a re-launch around here to! I have really missed spending time in my craft room, and while I have even less time now that I did a year ago (thanks to a very active toddler) I am aiming to make time for some Facebook Live videos, more regular blog posts and maybe even the odd Retreat in a Box!

Anyway, before we get to all of that, I wanted to share this years In Colour Club!

Inspire.Create.Challenge #069 | Inspiration with Good Morning Magnolia

We’ve got a different sort of challenge happening over at Inspire.Create.Challenge for the next two weeks. Every now and again we are mixing this up with an inspiration challenge, and this time our inspirational card comes from the lovely Liz Yuille.

Liz’s card is actually a fun flip fold, but rather than go down the fancy fold card route today, I thought I’d take her layout to create something a little different.

Can you see how I’ve jumped from Liz’s cute ladybird card to this with Good Morning Magnolia?

Good Morning Magnolia Thanks Card for Inspire.Create.Challenge with Stampin' Up! and StampinByHannah

I haven’t used the 2019-2021 In Colours for ages, and with the new ones just around the corner, I thought it time to pull out one of these fab colours. So, this card is in Rococo Rose, overstamped with the large Magnolia stamp from Good Morning Magnolia in Basic Gray.

The centre panel is a piece of embossed Vellum. Now, I’m really sad about this embossing folder, its the Layering Leaves one, and it’s retiring at the end of this month! I have LOVED having this folder in my collection over the past few years, its been a real staple.

Pretty Thank you card using Good Morning Magnolia from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

The rest of the card is pretty simple. A trio of little magnolia’s stamped in Basic Gray and die cut. They are coloured using Watercolour Pencils and a blender pen, for a hint of colour.

The sentiment is also from Good Morning Magnolia, and is heat embossed onto a scrap of Rococo Rose card stock.

The card is finished with a trio of pink jewels from the Nobel Peacock Rhinestones (also retiring)

Pop over to the Inspire.Create.Challenge blog to see the rest of the Design Team’s creations and share your own makes with us too!

It’s Back! Welcome to the StampinByHannah Code Club!

StampinByHannah Code Club Stampin' Rewards Hostess Club

Gosh… I really wasn’t intending to have such a break from the Code Club, but with everything that’s been going on the past couple of months my day job has been crazy!

However, with the new Stampin’ Up! Annual catalogue just around the corner, I decided that it’s time to either hang up my Stampin’ pinny… or stick a rocket somewhere and get blogging again! My decision was made for me, when a few weeks ago I found that one of my dearest Stampin’ friends has passed away from Covid-19. I can’t leave, I love this community far too much to leave it behind. So, I have a plan, and hopefully I can stick to it and get some lovely projects to you very soon!

Back to the Code Club!

So, each month I release a new code for you to enter when you checkout of my Online Store.

At the end of the month, each person who shops using that code will receive a cute little something from me. Sometimes it might be some product, some months you might get a sweet treat, and it will be different each month.

Before I go, please pop over to see this years Last Chance Products, and grab some of your favourite items before they leave us at the start of June.

Inspire.Create.Challenge #068 | So Grateful for Ornate Garden

Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah. Today’s post is for the Inspire.Create.Challenge blog, where we have a fun sketch challenge this week. I love a good sketch, they really spark my creativity, and help me out when my crafty mojo has up’d and left (something that’s been happening to me a lot recently!). This week I thought I would use the Ornate Garden Suite, which arrived in my craft room last week and I hadn’t had chance to a play with.

So Grateful card using Ornate Garden from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

This pretty suite is brand new, and a bit of a sneaky peak of the up-coming Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue. Ornate Garden contains two wonderful stamp sets, and two very handy die sets, an embossing folder, plus some lovely Designer Series Paper with Gold Foiling, ribbons and some Gilded Gems too.

Here I’ve used one of the Ornate Layers dies, over the Designer Series Paper to create a different background. Then finished with a lovely large sentiment which is perfect for the moment, an embossed circle of vellum, a dinky ribbon bow and one of those Gilded Gems.

Pretty card using a sketch and Ornate Garden from Stampin' Up! for Inspire.Create.Challenge with StampinByHannah

Check out the Inspire.Create.Challenge blog to see the sketch and what the rest of the Design Team have been creating this week, PLUS add your own creations using the sketch as your starter.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to see you again soon

Stampin’ Up! Retiring List 2020

Stampin' Up! Retiring List 2020 UK

Gosh, these come around quickly don’t they?! I can’t believe it’s almost time for the 2020 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue, and so the Retiring List is now live

This is your final opportunity to grab some of your favourite goodies from this past years Annual Catalogue before they leave us on the 30th May.

There are some exciting changes coming in the new catalogue, including Blends in Combo packs rather than as individual markers, meaning that you’ll get both the Light and Dark variation of the pen which will allow you to blend tones and colour beautiful images effortlessly. There are also more packs of Designer Series Paper that come in 6 x6″ sizes, new stamp sets, new

So, what should you grab from the Retiring List?

All the Bundles are retiring (as they do each year) but some will carry over as stamps and dies as separate products. Remember that Bundles save you 10% so if there’s one you really like, now is the time.

The current selection of Designer Series Papers are also going. There are some really lovely prints, and so totally worth a look.

Also I would pop and look at the embellishments too, as there are some really handy bits and pieces that are leaving us, and I wouldn’t want you to miss out.

Where can I find these goodies?

Click the SHOP NOW link below. The full list can be found under Sales and Specials > Last-Chance Products. You can also see which items are retiring in the main shop as they are marked as ‘retiring soon’
