Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah today. I thought I would share a fun sneak peak on the blog today for Inspire.Create.Challenge. This week we have a fun sketch for you, do pop over to the Inspire.Create blog and see the sketch and the other fabulous projects made by the Design Team.
The new Stampin’ Up! Mini catalogue launches this week and I am loving a whole heap of the suites in it! This particular one I wasn’t too sure about at first, but now that I’ve had a bit of a play with it, I absolutely LOVE it! Its called Painted Christmas and the Designer Series Papers are lovely hand-painted prints in traditional festive colours. Its lovely.
If you would like a copy of the new catalogue; drop you details into the order form on my Request a catalogue page.

I shared the Sweet as a Peach Suite a few weeks ago, and loved giving you a bit more of an over view of a group of products. There are always a stack of suites in each Stampin’ Up! catalogue, and they are a great way of ensuring you can create perfectly coordinated projects.
The Expressions in Ink suite isn’t one that you could easily miss, seeing as its on the front of this years Annual Catalogue. But it is one that could be tricky to use.
The Designer Series Paper in this suite is stunning! The colour combination of Evening Evergreen, Just Jade, Magenta Madness, Mint Macaron, Pale Papaya, Pear Pizzazz, Polished Pink, Shaded Spruce, and gold foiling, with florals and alcohol ink backgrounds. Of course, this paper is currently out of stock because it’s so lovely! However, I am keeping my eye on when it might be back, and will update my social media when its back available.
I think my favourite part of this suite though is the Ephemera pack. I have been really enjoying the gold die cuts, and those sequins are so handy for an added touch of sparkle.
Hello! Welcome to another Inspire.Create.Challenge! Challenge 095 is a fun sketch, and the Design Team have been super busy making a bunch of cool projects for you. Speaking of cool, it is definately not cool where I live… I’ve been meaning to write this blog post all week, but as usual I’m a last minute Annie, writing a blog post on the hottest day of the year and just typing is making me sweat!
Anyway, that’s probably more information than you really needed on a Sunday morning, so, shall we get onto the project?
On Friday I shared another card using the Pansy dies from Stampin’ Up! This card was made in the exact same way, I’ve just changed the colours up (taking inspiration from the Designer Series Paper, because I am a long way from being an expert in flowers!)
Hop over to the Inspire.Create blog to see the sketch and check out the other Design Team makes. Why not share your creations with us too
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to see you again soon
Hello! Happy Friday! The weekend is in sight, and I have a box of fabulous new Stampin’ Up! goodies arriving today. What more could a girl want?! A Friday video? oh, go on then!
The Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper is currently on sale (15% off!) and I am really loving the collection of patterns. They aren’t all floral, there are also some stunning stripes, and pretty ginghams in there too! I have another card using this suite coming on Sunday too
This card was really simple to put together, it just took a bit of time to do all the die cutting. Top Tip though; put Adhesive Sheet on the back of your card stock before you die cut. This way, you basically create die cut, card stock stickers that you can quickly stick together. You could also use liquid glue, but this way is much less messy!
Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I hope to see you again soon
Hello! So sorry this post is a little later than usual, but this week has been the usual level of crazy in my house, and I got a little side-tracked. Anyway, better late than never right? This week’s Friday video uses the stunning Art in Bloom bundle. This fab stamp set has a coordinating die set AND an embossing folder that work together to make these pretty 3D florals. So fun!
This card also features a piece of the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper, which is currently on sale for 15% off, along with a heap more packs of paper. Check all the items out HERE!
The cool thing about the Art in Bloom stamp and Hybrid Embossing folder bundle, is that you can cut and emboss at the same time but using the dies INSIDE the embossing folder! Isn’t that neat! Check the video to see how it works
Thought I would keep the blog post short and sweet for you this week, but before I go I just want to let you know about my Instagram account (https://www.instagram.com/stampinbyhannah/), where I post projects, sneak peaks and other fun things almost daily. I’d love to see you over there too
This week’s Inspire.Create.Challenge theme is Thank You. I love a thank you card, a cute little something to say thanks often speaks louder than the words written inside. I have been playing with the Expressions in Ink suite recently, and I am loving the Artistically Inked stamp set. It so pretty, but not cutesy, floral but not flower-y, just lovely.
Because this stamp set has lots of lovely little details, I have chosen to keep the colour palette simple; just Just Jade, Soft Succulent, Polished Pink, Gold and Basic White. The background stamping is one of the stamps from Artistically Inked (possibly my favourite!), stamped in Just Jade.
This card is one of those layered ones that I really love. Layers of stamping, die cutting, bit more stamping, some embellishments. Layered, but clean.
I did take some time to fussy cut the heat embossed sentiment on this one. I did stamp it in Just Jade on Basic White and cut it into a rectangle, but it just didn’t look quite right.
Please pop over to the Inspire.Create.Challenge blog to see more Thank You card inspiration from the Design Team, and add your own creations too!
Hey folks! Just a quick blog post from me today. I made a few of these cards a few weeks ago when we sadly lost James’s 100 year old Nannie. As I was filming the day I made them, I decided that I would jump on and film these as well, so here we are. A type of card we often need, but never really want to make.
These use the Painted Poppies stamp set, along with Peaceful Moments. These two stamp sets were part of the same suite a few years ago, and still work really well together. The background uses the Birch background stamp, and I’ve also added a Stitched So Sweetly die cut because I can’t create without these at the moment!

Hello! So, not only do I have a blog post for you today, but its the start of a new series here at StampinByHannah AND it includes a video too! Last weekend I attended a fabulous team event focused on the fabulous Sweet as a Peach suite from Stampin’ Up! and shared part of the video below as a Make and Take.
I adore team events, and I cannot wait for the day I can see these wonderful ladies in person for a great big hug. We usually get together 3 or 4 times a year, and I’m really missing seeing them all. This weekend was so nice, seeing everyone’s faces (although only on Zoom!), and getting to chat about crafty things.
So, every so often I am going to start sharing a blog post featuring a bunch of projects all using the same group of products.
One of the joys of Stampin’ Up! is the coordination, and suites take this coordination to another level. Grab a complete suite, add inks and card stocks and create a whole heap of projects that you can guarantee all work and coordinate together!
I have added a couple of other products to the suite, the Stitched So Sweetly dies are an absolute staple in my craft room. They just add the most perfect layer and are great for sentiments and focal images. The Tasteful Labels dies are another must have set for me, adding a little extra detail to every card. I’ve also used some Gilded Gems, just for a little sparkle too!
In the catalogue I wasn’t sure about this suite, however, once I started creating with it, I just couldn’t stop. The flower stamps are so pretty, although I think I do actually prefer the large peach stamp.
The Designer Series Paper in the You’re a Peach suite is a pretty collection of peach-y images, pretty florals, and some really handy basic prints. It’s all hand watercoloured and had a really fun colour palette of; Balmy Blue, Bumblebee, Calypso Coral, Early Espresso, Mango Melody, Pale Papaya, Pear Pizzazz, and Petal Pink.
Check out the video for a full look at the suite, as well as how to create these multi-tonal, stamped peached.
This week’s Inspire.Create.Challenge is an inspiration challenge based on a fabulous card by the lovely Verity Purglove.
I took the colour combination and the basic outline sketch of the card, and created this one.
This card uses the Art in Bloom bundle, which includes a super fun embossing folder and coordinating die. I’m going to have to do a video soon about how this works, because it would take me a very long blog post to explain I think.
It’s very pretty though, and absolutely worth it.
Pop over to the Inspire.Create blog to see Verity’s inspiration card and check out the rest of the Design Teams creations.
