Inspire.Create.Challenge 095 | Fun with the Pansy dies!

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?

Pansy Patch Just Because card using Pansy Petals Designer Series paper from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

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!)

How to create a die cut Pansy using Stampin’ Up! products

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!

Pretty Happy Birthday Card using Pansy Petals from Stampin' Up!

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!

Quick floral card using Art in Bloom from Stampin’ Up!

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

Inspire.Create.Challenge #094 | Thank You Artistically Inked

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!

Quick Handmade Sympathy Card using Stampin’ Up! Products

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.

How to made a quick Sympathy card using Painted Poppies and Peaceful Moments from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

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!

Inspire.Create.Challenge #091 | Sweet Strawberry Sketch!

This week’s Inspire.Create is a fun sketch. Pop over to the blog to see the sketch, as well as the other fabulous Design Team creations. While I do love a sketch, I also love to change things up a bit, and so I used this sketch as more of a jumping off point than a recipe!

Watercolour Thank you card using Sweet Strawberry from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

This watercoloured panel has been sat on my desk for a few weeks, just waiting for the right project. It uses the Sweet Strawberry stamp set, stamped in Stazon and watercoloured in Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Fresh Freshia and Balmy Blue.

Watercolour Thank you card using Sweet Strawberry from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

Because the stamped panel is such a feature, I chose to keep the rest of the card super simple, and added the heat embossed sentiment on black card stock to pick up on the black stamping.

Pootlers Blog Hop | Happiness with Pansy Patch

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

Welcome to the Pootlers Annual Catalogue 2021 Blog Hop! I am SO excited to be hopping with our fabulous team again. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen any of the team in person (Thanks Covid) and I cannot wait to give them all some seriously big squishy hugs at our next event.

One of my favourite suites from the new Annual Catalogue is the Pansy Petals suite. It’s come as a bit of a surprise really, because I’d forgotten that I’d even ordered it! But, it’s so fun to layer up the pansy stamps and there are so many wonderful colour combinations that I can’t see me getting bored with this one any time soon!

Happiness Handstamped card using Pansy Patch from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

I made a Home Decor piece with this bundle last weekend, that used a fun pink and coral colour combo, but this time I’ve had a bit of a Google of pansies and found this pretty blue combination. So, the blooms here are stamped in; Balmy Blue, Misty Moonlight (stamped off), Bumblebee (stamped off), Bumblebee, and Blackberry Bliss.

The stamps line up really easily, but the dies also coordinate with the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper if you wanted to go for a non-stamped card!

Fun Pansy floral card using Bumblebee trinkets and Stitched So Sweetly dies from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

The card base is one of the brand new In Colours; Soft Succulent, and its a colour I’m loving already! Here I’ve also used a piece of the Designer Series Paper in the same colour, from Pansy Petals, and the sentiment is also stamped in the same ink.

The Bumblebee Trinkets are the perfect finisher. So pretty!

Inspire.Create.Challenge #090 | Home Decor with Pansy Patch

This week’s Inspire.Create.Challenge theme is ‘Home Decor’, something that I don’t often venture into with my paper crafting to be honest. However, I do love a bit of decorating and accessorising my home, and when I do push myself to make something, it always makes me happy when I look at it.

I have been having a great time playing with the Pansy Patch suite from the new Stampin’ Up! Annual catalogue, and one of the cards in the catalogue really caught my eye. So, this is a CASE (copy and selectively edit) project of one in the new catalogue. I think it works well in a frame, what do you think?

The pansy’s are stamped using several stamps, but they are super easy to line up and create wonderfully lifelike blooms.

The large flower is stamped in Pale Papaya, Calypso Coral, Bumblebee (stamped off), Calypso Coral and Blackberry Bliss. While the smaller one is Polished Pink (stamped off), Polished Pink, Calypso Coral and Bumblebee. The leaves are Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen.

The Designer Series Paper is from the coordinating paper pack, and I added a layer of vellum embossed using the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.

The ‘Smile’ sentiment is from another stamp set, Lovely You, and is stamped in Evening Evergreen onto a scrap of Soft Seafoam card stock.

The piece is finished with a couple of the Bumblebee trinkets, which did mean I couldn’t put the glass in the frame, but I think I can live with that!
