Fun Shimmery Party Favours using Mini Pizza Boxes from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah Inspire.Create.Challenge #033 It’s Party Time, Party Favours with Mini Pizza Boxes

Inspire.Create.Challenge Party Theme

It’s out very last Inspire.Create.Challenge of 2018, and we are going out with a BANG! This challenge will be open for entries for a whole 4 weeks (rather than the usual 2!) and we would LOVE to see your Party themed creations! Maybe your making Table Favours, Thank you Cards, Gift Bags, or some fabulous Decor projects, share them with us over on the Inspire.Create.Challenge blog!

Inspire.Create.Challenge Party Time Theme Challenge Hand Delivered Party Favour with Stampin' Up! Mini Pizza Boxes

At the most recent Stampin’ Up! event I sat with one of my Stampin’ Besties (Sam of Sam’s Crafty Things!) and I realised that I had never actually used one of the Mini Pizza Boxes that have been in the catalogue for a few years. So, when I got home the first thing I got out to craft with was these fab little boxes… and made this fun Party Favour Box. The Mini Pizza Boxes come flat packed, but the slot together really easily, and they are food safe too (and the perfect size for a hand made cookie to two!

I added a hint of colour to this one using a sponge brayer, but you could also colour them by sprintzing or painting.

How to make a fun Table Favour with Mini Pizza Boxes from Stampin' Up!

The stamped panel uses the Hand Delivered Stamp Set. This stamp set is one of the hostess exclusive sets in the Annual Catalogue. These sets are exclusively available to customers who either hosts a party that spends over £150, or places an online order of the same value.

I stamped it with Memento Ink, and then coloured the balloons with a selection of Stampin’ Blends. I did HAVE to add a hint of sparkle to some of the balloons using a paint brush and some Frost White Shimmer Paint, which gives the effect of those fun shimmery balloons.

Right, that’s all from me today, do pop over to the Inspire.Create blog and check out the creations of the other Design Team Members, and share your creations with us too!

Inspire.Create.Challenges 032 | Anything goes with Rooted in Nature

Hand Stamped Leaf Birthday Card using Rooted in Nature from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah Inspire.Create.Challenges 032 Anything goes with Rooted in Nature

inspire.create.challenge 032 Anything Goes Sketch

As you may know, I set the challenges for Inspire.Create, and this time I thought I would be really mean and set a completely blank challenge! I cannot WAIT to see what you guys make for this one too… don’t forget to check out  the Inspire.Create blog to see the fabulous Design Team’s work and enter your own creations.

Inspire.Create.Challenge Anything Goes Sketch Challenge Happy Birthday Card using Rooted in Nature from Stampin' Up!

I had a fun day a few weekends ago (before my craft room was packed up ready for the Big Move!) making a bunch of birthday cards, and this just sort of happened! Stampin’ Up! have started a demonstrator campaign for Simple Stamping this month, and I am attempting to embrace this (because I am rubbish at it!). So, this card uses minimal products, and so is super easy for you to replicate!

In actual fact it uses 2 stamp sets; but only because the Rooted in Nature stamp set doesn’t have a birthday sentiment. So I grabbed one of the Hostess Exclusive stamp sets, Hand Delivered, for the sentiment. But other than that its one ink, 2 colours of card stock and 1 ribbon.

Manly Happy Birthday Card using Rooted in Nature from Stampin' Up!

This card would work for a girl birthday or a boy one! Although I suppose that I’ve girl-ed this one up by adding a heap of Shimmer Paint on those leaves and a pretty Frosted Epoxy Droplets

Inspire.Create.Challenge 031 | Festive Colour Challenge

Inspire.Create.Challenge Dashing Deer Colour Challenge Card

StampinByHannah Inspire.Create.Challenge 031 Festive Colour Challenge

Inspire.Create.Challenge Stampin' Up! Cardmaking Challenge

This fortnights Inspire.Create.Challenge is a pretty colour combination inspired by the oh so popular Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper from this years Stampin’ Up! Autumn Winter Catalogue. Now, be warned that this paper is While Stocks Last because it has been SO popular. So run, don’t walk to the Online store to grab yours today!

Clean and Simple Handmade Christmas Card using Dashing Deer from Stampin' Up!

Saying that, I haven’t used the Joyous Noel suite at all for today’s card, instead I have opted for the fabulously fun Dashing Deer instead. This pretty deer stamp is winning for me at the moment, I just cannot get enough of it! Here it’s been stamped in Merry Merlot and die cut using the coordinating Detailed Deer thinlits.

Inspire.Create.Challenge Dashing Deer Colour Challenge Card

The deer is layered over some copper heat embossed stamping and a piece of the copper trim, oh and some splatter in shaded spruce too! You could add even more to this card, with sequins, or rhinestones, or those stunning frosted Epoxy dots, however I chose to keep things simple and make a clean and simple (ish) card for this weeks Inspire. Create.Challenge.

Check out the other Design Team members colour creations over on the Inspire.Create.Challenge blog and enter your own projects too. Projects can be added from a vareity of places including your own blogs, public galleries, Pinterest, or even a public Facebook Post. We cannot wait to see them!

Merry Christmas with Snow is Glistening from Stampin’ Up!

Gold and Green watercolour Merry Christmas Card using Snow is Glistening from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah Merry Christmas with Snow is Glistening from Stampin’ Up!

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Showcase

This month Stampin’ Up! have released 2 fabulous stamp sets with a coordinating set of dies to celebrate the lead up to Christmas. The Snowflake Showcase Suite is a fabulous mix of Festive Christmas and all year round pretty images that you can use year after year.

Today’s card is a bit of a CASE (copy and selectively edit) of a card by the ever talented Kristina Werner. Her card didn’t use Stampin’ Up! products, but I immediately saw the fabulous Snow is Glistening Stamp set in her creation, and just HAD to have a go

Simple Watercolour Christmas Card using Snow is Glistening from Stampin' Up!

Usually green is not my favourite, but the simple combination of Mossy Meadow, Gold and White made my heart sing. The tree from Snow is Glistening was stamped into a piece of Watercolour Paper using Versamark. I use the Stamparatus when stamping in Watercolour Paper because the paper is textured it can sometimes take a few applications of ink to get a well defined image. The tree was then heat embossed with Gold embossing powder.

Green watercolour Christmas Tree Christmas Card handmade using Snow is Glistening from Stampin' Up!

The watercolour paper then took several layers of Mossy Meadow ink mixed with water, with more ink added at the corners to leave the centre a little lighter. Once this was dry, I inked the edges of the watercolour paper with more Versamark and added Gold embossing powder for a fun boarder.

The card is finished with a heat embossed sentiment in Vellum, and a layer of Whisper White between the Watercolour Paper and the Mossy Meadow Card Base

Bright and Fun Snowflake Christmas Card using Snowflake Showcase from Stampin’ Up!

How to make a clean and simple Snowflake Christmas card using Snow is Glistening from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah Bright and Fun Snowflake Christmas Card using Snowflake Showcase from Stampin’ Up!

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Showcase

This month Stampin’ Up! have released 2 fabulous stamp sets and a coordinating set of dies, along with a pack of fun embellishments. Unfortunately the gorgeous White Velvet paper has already disappeared from the store, but I would take this as an indication of the popularity of these fabulous goodies and get them quickly!

Clean and simple snowflake Christmas Card using Stampin' Up! products

This bright Christmas card uses the pretty Velvet paper on the large die cut snowflake, however I’m sure it would look just as pretty using Thick Whisper White instead. This die cut looks really intricate, but it still cuts beautifully. I did have to poke out a fair number of bits, and I don’t know about you, but I never really mind doing that. Although you could grab the Big Shot Die Brush if you were going to cut loads of them.

Large die cut snowflake Christmas card using snow is glistening from Stampin' Up!

The sentiment is taken from the coordinating Happiness Surrounds stamp set, and its heat embossed in Silver onto a die cut piece of Bermuda Bay card stock.

This card is finished with a heap of sparkly splatter using the fabulous Shimmer Paints. Do check the shopping list below for all the items used on this card.

Christmas Countdown Video Tutorial Series StampinByHannah Stampin' Up! UK

I am in LOVE with the November exclusive goodies at the moment! I am a bit of a sucker for anything winter-y stamp set with snowflakes anyway, but these stamp sets are just so stunning. If you haven’t checked them out yet you totally should, but bear in mind that they are While Stocks Last so grab them before they disappear

Christmas Countdown Non traditional Christmas tags using Snow is Glistening from Stampin' Up!

I whipped 6 of these cute tags in a very short space of time last week, and filmed a tutorial for you to. These are destined for a few special Christmas presents for some very special people. Christmas this year is going to be very low key in our house with our house move and baby on the way, however I will be spoiling my husband with presents as he has the awful job of working night shifts all over the festive period.

The colours here are not what I would consider traditional colours, however I still think these feel very festive.

What festive makes are you making these year?
