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!

Thank You Inspired Thoughts | International Blog Highlight

Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah today for Kylie’s International Blog Highlights. As usual the theme is ‘Thank You’ and there are heaps of demonstrators taking part. Hop over to Kylie’s blog to see them all and vote for your favourites.

Floral Thank you card using Inspired Thoughts and Perfectly Pencilled from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

I shared this card on Instagram as a Reel on Saturday, but thought it needed a place on the blog too! It is actually inspired by a card in the new Annual Catalogue, but I’ve altered the colours and background stamping.

The floral panel uses the Perfectly Pencilled Designer Series Paper, which is Black and White, and then I’ve added colour with Stampin’ Blends in Parakeet Party, Orchid Oasis and Starry Sky. The background is stamped using the little round stamp from Hello Beautiful.

The sentiment is taken from Inspired Thoughts. Both the Papers and this stamp set are featured in this month’s Card Club. I would LOVE for you to join me, you can find out more information by dropping me an email at stampinbyhannah[at]outlook.com.

Crafting Live! | Fun with Nature’s Prints from Stampin’ Up!

Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah this week for my YouTube Live replay. This week I have had the Sun Prints suite out on my desk following last weekends blog hop, and I have had so much fun playing with it that I thought I would share it again on YouTube Live this week.

Hello There Just Because Card using Sun Prints from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

Seeing as its Jubilee Weekend, I thought it only right that I use Red, Blue and White… or Night of Navy, Sweet Sorbet, Basic White (and Sahara Sand).

I absolutely LOVE a wreath on a card, and so I couldn’t not get this set of dies… which then led to the stamp set, and the whole suite! The wreath die on its own is really pretty, however, I like to step things up a little, and these flowers also form a perfectly sized wreath on the front of a card.

Pootlers Blog Hop | 3 Card Ideas with the Sun Prints suite from Stampin’ Up!

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!

Inspire.Create.Challenge #117 | Guys card idea using Beautiful Shapes from Stampin’ Up!

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!

Masculine Happy Birthday using Beautiful Shapes from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

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.

Geometric Happy Birthday using Beautiful Shapes from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

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!

InspireINK | Happier than Happy

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!

Happier than happy card using Stampin' Up! products from StampinByHannah

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.

Card ideas using Abstract Beauty from Stampin’ Up!

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.

International Blog Highlights | Thank You Amazing Silhouettes

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.
