Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah today. Today is a little bit special, because its our team blog hop, we do about 3 of these a year to celebrate the release of new Stampin’ Up! Catalogues. They are SO much fun, and I hope that you hit some of the other ladies blogs later using the links at the end of this blog post.
When I was shopping through the new Annual Catalogue, this suite didn’t immediately jump out at me. However, after seeing some of the fabulous creations that the Artisan’s had created with it, it fell into my basket!
I have made 3 cards to share with you today, but I think that I will make some more to share on my weekly YouTube Live on Wednesday night, because these are so fun and really simple to do!
I love Night of Navy, but I really wanted to try using the Nature’s Prints Stamp Set with a really bright colour too. So I reached for my current ‘Go to’ pink; Polished Pink and I absolutely LOVE this one!
Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah for another Inspire.Create.Challenge! This week we have a Masculine theme; something I think a lot of use struggle with. When I’m making cards for men, I try to steer clear of florals, ribbon or lots of embellishments, and try to stick to simple stamping. Saying that, this card isn’t all that simple!
I love the Abstract Beauty suite, and the dies are particularly great! These fun nesting hexagons are great for a geo-metric guy card. The base layer has ink blended hexagons; I die cut a sheet of window sheet using 3 of the dies, and use it as a mask.
Then the top layer, I added a few different ink colours onto a piece of Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper, and then once it was dry, used the same hexagons to die cut the shapes. This card uses two of the new In colours; Tahitian Tide and Parakeet Party, along with Pacific Point, Soft Seafoam and Basic Black.
The sentiment is from Artistically Inked and is heat embossed in White onto Basic Black. This card is finished with a trio of Adhesive Backed Hexagons.
Don’t forget to pop over to the Inspire.Create blog for more masculine inspiration and to add your own projects to our link-up!
Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah today, and to the InspireINK blog hop. This month our challenge was set by the lovely Janice Thomson of JazzleDazzleCrafts… and she set a really tough one; Sunshine, Flowers and Insects. So, I’ve gone a little outside of the theme, but there is an insect / butterfly on this one!
This card uses the Happy Forest Friends suite. I have to admit, this wasn’t something that immediately leapt into my basket, however there as some cute images in the stamp set that I just couldn’t leave behind. The Designer Series Paper is really lovely, there are some very cute-sy images, but also a bunch of really great basic patterns too.
Want more inspiration; hop along the rest of the team and please do leave some comment love along the way;
Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah this evening for another pre-recorded video. Usually I go Live on YouTube at 19:30 on a Wednesday evening, except that I am on holiday this week, and rather than leave you without a video, I have filmed something for you instead!
The Hues of Happiness suite is the suite that is featured in this month’s Card Club!
Card Club is so much fun! Each month we made 3 exclusive cards from a card kit produced by me. Kits include all the card stock, Designer Series Paper, ribbons and embellishments that you need to complete the projects. All you need to do it add the stamps and ink (although you can of course add the stamps to your kit!)
Club starts today and is just £12.50 (plus £3.50 postage and packing) each month, and term is 6 months long. Sign up before the 28th of the month to receive this months kit
Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah this evening. Now, I don’t usually blog this late in the day, but this week’ YouTube video was pre-recorded rather than Live because today is my daughter’s 3rd birthday, and so I thought I would set the blog post to go live at the same time.
Recently I’ve been having heaps of fun with the Abstract Beauty Suite from the January-June Mini catalogue. I am in LOVE with the Designer Series Paper! I shared a card using this suite over the weekend for Inspire.Create and wanted to re-make it… so I did!
I kept the diagonal theme with the other two cards I made this week. One using more of that fabulous paper, and one without.
This card also uses the Beautiful Shapes dies to cut out the Designer Series Paper and Basic White card stock.
This week’s final card doesn’t use the papers at all, rather all the little itty bitty stamps in this stamp set, along with Blushing Bride, Polished Pink, Parakeet Party, and Orchid Oasis.
Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah for Kylies International Blog Highlight. I will get in early and remind you to pop over to Kylie’s blog to vote for your favourite cards this month. My card today was inspired by a card in the new Annual Catalogue (don’t you just love that its an Inspiration book as well as a catalogue?), although I have changed the colour, stamps and Designer Series Paper from the version in the book!
This card actually uses a bunch of left over pieces from my Team Retreat a few weeks ago! The paper (Symbols of Fortune) was part of a Make and Take I didn’t get around to making (no surprises there!), and the Gold Metallic Paper a gift from my team leader.
The Butterfly stamp is taken from Amazing Silhouettes, which is currently bundled with the Amazing Thanks Dies. Top Tip here; make sure you have the Adhesive Sheets for these dies, it makes them SO much easier to layer up.
Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah today for another Inspire.Create.Challenge. This week we have a fabulous sketch for you to create with. Do pop over to the Inspire.Create blog to see the sketch, check out the Design team projects and add your own makes too!
I have been playing with the Abstract Beauty suite this past week, while I wait for my Annual Catalogue order to arrive! I absolutely LOVE the Hello Beautiful stamp set, but the Designer Series Paper is gorgeous with all that fabulous gold foiling.
This week’s sketch had me a bit stumped if I’m honest, however I do love this card. I think I might make another version for this week’s YouTube video though… so do watch out for that!
Hello all! Last weekend I attended a whole weekend of crafting with my Stampin’ sisters for a fun team retreat. We had the BEST time! I did a round up on my YouTube on Wednesday night, but I thought I would link to a few of the swaps I received here, so that you can check them out in more details….
Helzie made these fabulous cards, and YouTube video to share;
Gez made these fun chocolate boxes;
Sally made these fun boxes (I still have mine sat on my desk… although the chocolates have gone!)
Jayne’s notebook is also still on my desk, and filled with things for the Card Club!
Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah today. Today I have a fun card for you for Inspire.Create.Challenges. This challenge is a fabulous colour one; Black, White, and then a colour of your choice…. so I’ve gone for Coastal Cabana.
This fabulous stamp set was designed in collaboration with my wonderful friend Sam Hammond Donald (Pootles) who I am actually on a retreat with as this blog post goes live. So, she will actually be getting this card this weekend too!
Don’t forget to head over to the Inspire.Create.Challenges blog post and check out what the Design Team have been creating, and add your own creations too. I cannot wait to see what colour you add to Black and White!
Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah today, I am SO excited to be back hopping with the ladies from InspireINK today. This month the challenge was set by the lovely Gez aka Nigezza… and she set a very purple theme! I am SUCH a purple girl… so this was totally up my street, and this card came together very quickly!
