Springtime Impressions Thank You Card

I love a simple card, and this card came together in minutes using the Springtime Impressions dies. I am so happy that these are carrying forward into the new Stampin’ Up! Annual catalogue, along with the coordinating stamp set; Abstract Impressions. However they are currently available as a bundle that is retiring, so if you want to save 10% and get the bundle price you need to do so before the end of the month.

Die Cut Thank You card using Butterfly die from Springtime Impressions from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

For all the butterfly die is quite intricate it’s not one I’ve ever had an issue die cutting. Here I’ve simply die cut it from a scrap of Whisper White and adhered in in the middle to a piece of the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper.

Thank You Butterfly Die Cut Card using Springtime Impressions and Abstract Impressions from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

The sentiment is taken from the coordinating Abstract Impressions stamp set and has been heat embossed in White onto a scrap of Basic Black card stock. I love sentiments like this, they really pop on a card.

I’m sure you could add more layers, ribbon and embellishment to this card, but I wanted to keep things pretty simple today. I would love to hear what else you would add, let me know in the comments below!

Fun Floral Thank you card!

Fun Floral Thank you card using Thankful Thoughts, Oh So Eclectic, Lots of Love and Awesomely Artistic from Stampin' Up!

Every now and again I get requests from family and friends for a special card for a special occasion. Recently some of my work colleagues requested a Thank You card, and this is what I made….

Fun Floral Thank you card using Thankful Thoughts, Oh So Eclectic, Lots of Love and Awesomely Artistic from Stampin' Up!

Now, I have a confession to make with this card….. it uses 4 different stamp sets! Yes, I know, but my excuse is that it is a big 8 x 8″ card, and I needed to fill the space! So, step by step…

  • I stamped the sentiment from Thankful Thoughts in the centre of the card using Sweet Sugarplum ink
  • The Fresh Fig Flowers came next, taken from Lots of Love – I love this stamp set! and I added leaves in Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, and Sweet Sugarplum too
  • Then the Blushing Bride leaves filled in the gaps (the stamp is also from Lots of Love)
  • The card was still missing something, so I grabbed one of the stamps from Oh So Eclectic. This fun stamp is either tiny bird foot prints, or little flowers…. I can’t decide… but it is stamped in Sweet Sugarplum
  • But there was still something missing…. yes, some gold embossed splatter from Awesomely Artistic! Perfect

Fun Floral Thank you card using Thankful Thoughts, Oh So Eclectic, Lots of Love and Awesomely Artistic from Stampin' Up!

So such a big card, it needed some stamping on the inside too. I took each element from the front and stamped it inside.

I do hope the lovely lady that received it enjoyed it!

Make It Monday | Quick and Easy Thank you cards

Make It Monday

Hello! I feel like its been ages since I have filmed a proper Make It Monday! This weekend I have been filming and making like a crazy woman…. June is busy with James having a couple of weekends off, and a crafty retreat later in the month – meaning that I needed to get some serious work done ready!

Make It Monday Video Tutorial Quick and Easy Thank You Cards using Oh So Eclectic and Fresh Florals From Stampin' Up!

This is my Thank You card for the wonderful ladies and gentlemen that shopped with me in May. They are super simple to stamp, as you can see from the video, they were quick to make! They use 3 of the 5 new In-Colours; Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist and Powder Pink. The stamp set is Oh So Ecletic…. which I have had for a couple of months but never managed to get inky! I know, it’s shocking, but I was waiting for the matching thinlits dies! Oh, well, they arrive this week so expect to see many many more cards with this stamp set really soon!

Measurements:

Card Base – 10.5 x 29.7 cm (half a sheet of A4) scored on the long side at 14.85 cm

Designer Series Paper – 14.8 x 3 cm

Fresh Fig Card stock – 14.8 x 1 cm

The Designer Series Paper I have used here is from the In-Colour Designer Series Paper Stack; Fresh Florals. I am in LOVE with this paper, but I do want you to know that there it does have a ‘watercolour wash’ effect and the more solid papers don’t appear as solid colours… there has been much debate about this paper among demonstrators over the last month, I am totally in love with it, I love the watercolour effect and when you cut the paper up the effect becomes much more subtle.

I hope you love this card as much as I do, and if you have ordered from me during May you’re cards are hitting the post office today, so watch out for them arriving later in the week.

Floral Phrases Thank You Card

Floral Phrases Thank You Card using Stampin' Up! products

I recently cleared my craft room of stamps, dies, ribbons, punches, and anything else that is retiring at the end of May. I love this time of year…. the sun is shining (sometimes!), my craft room gets a bit of a spring clean, and we start to see prepare for the launch of the new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue. I won’t keep everything that I have that is retiring… I will be slowly getting rid of things probably during the summer but I will let you know when that happens!

So, I currently have a much reduced crafty stash…. which has done wonders for my creativity! Sometimes we feel we need this thing or that stamp to make great projects… but working with what is actually in your craft room rather than dreaming about this die or that stamp, I find anyway, yields much better results!

Purple Thank you card using Floral Phrases from Stampin' Up!

As I have removed all my retiring stamps from my shelf, I only have current and continuing products to play with…. and I am so excited for this stamp set to find it’s way into the new catalogue, along with a stunning pack of Designer Series paper to match it! This is Floral Phrases, and it has been seen in Night of Navy a LOT in the past 12 months…. just watch this space to see it in some fabulous new colours! Here I have stamped in Perfect plum.

Floral Phrases Thank You Card using Stampin' Up! products

This simple card is finished with a bow in linen thread and a trio of embellishments; two Enamel shapes – one in Perfect Plum, the other Elegant Eggplant – and a Rhinestone.

Simple and pretty, great for wedding thank yous I think!

Thank you card using Thoughtful Branches from Stampin' Up! UK

I am still loving using our fabulous August Exclusive stamp and die bundle; Thoughtful Branches. I think this card would look fabulous if you swapped out the Tip Top Taupe and replaced it with copper! I might just have to make that this afternoon! The rest of the card uses Pear Pizzazz and Tangerine Tango for a cute Autumnal look

Simple Thank You card using Thoughtful Branches from Stampin' Up! UK

Stamping on Designer Series Paper!

Quick and Simple Thank You card using thoughtful thanks from Stampin' Up! UK

I am always looking for ways to get more use from the products I buy, ways you can stretch your stash, ways to get creative without buying heaps of stuff! I love crafting (and shopping), and I am lucky enough to have half a room dedicated to my hobby (and business) but its very small and I am quickly running out of room! So, time to get creative with what I own rather than buying more (even though I would love to shop!)

Quick and Simple Thank You card using thoughtful thanks from Stampin' Up! UK

Last month I had the Fruit Stand pack of Designer Series paper out on my desk almost all month, and this piece of paper really called to me to be used simply on a card! trimmed slightly smaller than my card front and simply stamped with the sentiment from Thankful Thoughts I almost called this one done…

Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper Card from Stampin' Up! UK

but it just needed an extra something, and some splatter of Flirty Flamingo and Gold Wink of Stella finished this one off! I love this card so much that my customers will be finding a variation of this in the post over the next week or so!

Thanks for checking out my blog today, and I’ll see you again tomorrow for something that’s not a card!

A Special Note of Thanks To You!

Rose Wonder thank you card using Floral Phrases from Stampin' Up! UK

This is a special card today, I am totally inspired each and every month by the fabulous creations of the Artisan Design Team – these lovely ladies are specially picked by Stampin’ Up! and create wonderful projects each and every month. I am always so inspired by them all and just felt like sharing my homage to the ADT for this year.

A special thank you card featuring floral phrases and Rose Wonder from Stampin' Up! UK

Part of the creative process is always about change and development, and I am sure that we all look back on the first cards we created with utter horror, I absolutely do! I have spent many hours, days, weeks and months developing my style, and I am hoping that it continues to develop and change. I just love the process of creating something, don’t you, even if I am not always all that sure about the outcome – I still post the cards I’m not sure about, and they are usally the cards that you guys like, comment and pin most! isn’t it strange!

Anyway, I am in a rambly mood today, who know’s what tangent I will go off on for your blog post on Thursday!

Floral Phrases Rose Wonder from Stampin' Up! ukThis card has a card base of Sahara Sand, with a layer of Flirty Flamingo and then Whisper White. There are a few stamp sets in play here, there are some splatter in the background in Flirty Flamingo using Gorgeous Grunge, while the sentiment is taken from Floral Phrases.

The leave die cut is in  Pear Pizzazz and is from the Rose Garden thinlits set.

What do you think of this creation? I would love to know your thoughts, leave a comment down below and don’t forget to subscribe to my blog and weekly emails using the buttons on the right! (or at the bottom if you are reading this on a mobile device!)

Thank You Garden In Bloom

Thank You Card using Garden in Bloom and Tin of Cards from Stampin' Up! UK

As you know I love Watercolour, and getting really inky and messy when I’m card making. However, sometimes you just need a super quick card….

Thank You Card using Garden in Bloom and Tin of Cards from Stampin' Up! UK

But, I still want that watercolour / inky artsy look. I LOVE Garden in Bloom for this, it is designed to make you look like a watercolour master – but all you have used is stamps and ink!

Here I have used Blushing Bride for the flowers – there are other stamps that I could have layered but I was keeping things simple here! – with Melon Mambo for the smaller flowers and Pear Pizzazz leaves.

The sentiment is taken from Tin of Cards, and the strip of Designer Series Paper is from Go Wild!

A Nice Cuppa Thank You

A few weeks ago my lovely husband, James, asked me to make 2 thank you cards to say Thanks to the team at one of his placements. James is a student nurse (apparently my horror stories haven’t put him off!) and he has now finished his first year of study, which means saying goodbye to the ward where he has been based for the past 9 months. Now, as a nurse I know that there are few things that nurses like more than a ‘hot’ cup of tea or coffee, and so the ‘A Nice Cuppa’ stamp set and coordinating dies seemed perfect

Stampin' Up! UK A Nice Cuppa Thank you card

I actually made two cards, one for the ward team, and one for James’ mentor. I’m loving using up my Designer Series Papers at the moment (as I’m sure regular readers are well aware) and this card was a great excuse to get out the Birthday Blooms Designer Series Paper and use it for a non-birthday themed card. I often use Designer Series Paper as colour inspiration, and so looked through the colour list for a coordinating card base colour and came up with Soft Suede.

The Cup and tea bag were die cut from Whisper White card stock and, although you can’t see it in this photos, sponged in Crumb Cake ink. I love adding a bit of sponging to the edge of items like this mug, just to give a little dimension, and take it from a flat piece to something special. I have also curved pieces like this before, but left it flat this time around.

Stampin' Up! Uk A Nice Cuppa Thank you card cherry on top

The second card was for James’ mentor, and so I wanted to make something that reflected James – bright and colourful! This of course meant changing Designer Series Paper and so here I have used the Cherry on Top DSP stack. This cute stack of 6 x 6 papers features some really bold and bright colours that you may not have first thought of when thinking about a cup of tea!

This card uses a piece of Shimmery White card stock, and I have added a wash of Pool Party in the background before adding 1cm strips of Designer Series Paper and the tea cup. The sentiment on this one is taken from the Sale-a-bration set Perfect Pairings – I will be so sad at the end of the month when this set retires as I have used it so much!

I know that both these cards were well received on the ward, We love sending Thank You’s at the end of a placement or work place. Believe it or not we don’t get much thanks, and so its always lovely to get a hand-made thank you.

Butterfly Basics – January Thanks!

I love sending thank you notes to customers, and I try to make a different card each month.

For those lovely ladies who shopped with me in January, these are the cards that should be sat on your shelves!

I have to give credit to Brandy Cox who I have CASE’d this idea from. She did a fab 10 cards in 20 minutes video based around this set. Lovely!

Stampin' Up! UK butterfly Basics thank you

I send cards out at the end of each month, and theses went out last week.

I used a Pool Party card base (have an A4 sheet cut in half, folded in half), with a piece of Whisper White for stamping.

The stamp set used here is Butterfly Basics, it is so pretty! saying that I haven’t included a butterfly! The ferns are triple stamped in Pear Pizzazz, with the other elements stamped in Crumb Cake.

The ‘Thank You’ sentiment is taken from Crazy About You.
