Beautiful You | Wishing You Brighter Days to Come

Watercolour Sympathy Card Thinking of you using Beautiful You from Stampin' Up! UK

One of the things that made me shriek with excitement in the new Spring Summer catalogue is the fabulous Watercolour Pencils! I’m sure you all know by now how much I LOVE to watercolour, actually colouring in in general in my jam, but watercolour is my absolute favourite! The first thing that went into my shopping basket when I put my order in last month was for these great pencils, and I was not disappointed, they are awesome!

Watercolour Pencils and Beautiful you from Stampin' Up! UK

The pencils come in a pack of 13 great Stampin’ Up! colours, allowing for full coordination with all the other great products; inks, card stock and embellishments already available. I have everything crossed for some more colours to be added in June for the next Annual catalogue too! They are super easy to colour with, the pretty lady image on this card (from Beautiful You) is coloured with the watercolour pencils, Stampin’ Up! have made a great video to show us how they work…

Once I had coloured the image with my new set of Watercolour Pencils, I needed to find a suitably pretty background, and so grabbed for the Irresistibly Floral Speciality Designer Series Paper and a sponge roller. This paper comes as white sheets, but it has patterns already heat embossed onto it, all you have to do is add an ink colour of your choice and reveal the pattern. This paper works with a heap of colouring techniques, and I am sure I could have Watercoloured it, but the Sponge Rollers had just arrived in my crafty office, and I had to have a go. They are super easy actually, I think they will turn up in a video sooner rather than later!

I finished this card with some matts of Basic Grey and a bow in Bermuda Bay Thick Bakers Twine.

Do you love this card as much as I do? Yes, you should totally check out my Beautiful You Online Card Class! you can find out more about it all HERE!

Global Design Project 068 | Nailed It!

Mans Card using Nailed It by Stampin' Up! UK for the Global Design Project 068

Well Hello there! It has been so long since I took part in the Global Design Project. I LOVE doing this challenge every week, but the back end of last year was so crazy I haven’t had chance to join in for ages! However, that is going to change, one of my many New Years Resolutions this year is to take part in the GDP each week (made much easier by the fact that I don’t often have to work a Monday!)

gdp068_jess_williams

This weeks challenge is to CASE the designer. I love this card by Jess Williams, and chose to use both the layout and the colour combination for my card.

Mans Card using Nailed It by Stampin' Up! UK for the Global Design Project 068

I chose to use the awesome new stamp set, Nailed It, for this card. Guy cards are always tricky, but there are some really great options for guys in the new Spring Summer catalogue (which launches tomorrow!! So excited!). The hammers are both coloured using the great new Watercolour Pencils, LOVE them! I have been trying them out on a heap of different types of card stock and so far haven’t come across one that they don’t work on!

Global Design Project Guys Card using Nailed It from Stampin' Up! UK

I have to say too I had such a drama getting this post up today. I got called into work on Sunday night to cover the night shift and so making this card was an interestingly sleepy experience yesterday afternoon, but then to make it even worse when I went to photograph it I discovered that my lighting set up has totally died! I have to use artificial lights to photograph my projects at this time of year, and so once I have finished writing up this post I’m off to find another lamp holder for my photography light bulb! I have to thank my lovely husband who stood holding my lights to allow me to take the photos for today’s post, and I really hope that I don’t have to call on his lamp holding services again too soon!

Thanks so much for checking out my little blog today, and I hope that you check back tomorrow for the launch of the Spring Summer catalogue and the start of Sale-a-bration!

12 Days of Christmas | Classes and Events in 2017

Online Card Classes UK using Stampin' Up! UK products

12 days of Christmas with StampinByHannah Independent Stampin' Up! UK Demonstrator

I cannot believe that we are already at the last video of my 12 Days of Christmas series for 2016! I have had so much fun, and I hope you have enjoyed them too. This is my chance for a bit of a catch up with you all before the festivities begin….. This past few months have been more than a little hectic, and I have had to re-evaluate what I can and cannot do with my blog, videos and events. (as I write this I have nothing made for the new year, heaps of things on the to do list, and not a lot of prospect of finding time to do any of it!)

Which leaves me with some sad news, at least for the first half of 2017 I wont be doing any in-person events, I am gutted because I just LOVE to stamp with you all, but I just cannot commit to a regular evening, and I don’t like having to change the day the week before (which has happened more than once in 2016) so, to replace my in-person events, I will be posting 2 classes each month online! Yay! …. oh, and the videos and blog posts are staying too!

Right then, class details……

  • Class sign up’s start on 4th January, but you can pre-register your interest using the form below!
  • Class costs £45, which means that you get to pick one of the FABULOUS Sale-a-bration goodies!
  • Classes will be posted on the 1st and 14th of each month and you will have around 14 days to pre-order before I close the class and place your orders! Classes should ship to you about a week later.
  • There will be a postage fee of £3.00 per class kit
  • Each class will make 6 cards (or other projects) and comes with exclusive video tutorials as well as all the card stock, embellishments and other bits of bobs to make the cards!
