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!
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!
Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I hope to see you again soon
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
Thought I would keep the blog post short and sweet for you this week, but before I go I just want to let you know about my Instagram account (https://www.instagram.com/stampinbyhannah/), where I post projects, sneak peaks and other fun things almost daily. I’d love to see you over there too
Hello! Well, this is a bit exciting actually, as I have finally managed to get myself a bit more organised, film a video, and actually have some projects ready to share.
With the start of the new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue, a group of us get together and swap project ideas. I LOVE sharing these fab demonstrators with you, and so I thought I’d share them on video as well as here.
Hilary sent this very pretty card using the Bloom where you are Planted suite
This is the card shared with my by Heather Fogan from StampwithNellie.com… embarassingly, I have no idea what I did with her lovely card, I think its lost somewhere in my craftroom, but I wanted to make sure she got a mention too
This final card is the card I sent them. Keeping things super simple (and quick), letting that lovely Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper do all the talking!
I know, I’ve already shared one blog post with you today… but I didn’t want to start the new week without sharing this week’s Facebook Live video and cards! There are heaps of lovely packs of Designer Series Paper in the new Stampin’ Up! annual catalogue, but some of them have a few special features. This particular pack; Beauty of the Earth, has two sheets that are perfect for super speedy cards!
These cards are all super simple and quick to put together, do check out the video to see all 6.
Before I go, I just want to remind you about my In Colour Club; Registration closes on the 21st May, and I will be emailing everyone on the 22nd. I can’t wait!
Hey folks! Like I said, I have a few blog posts coming to you today, this one does include a fabulous hand stamped card and a video tutorial too using the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set.
I have been having heaps of fun with the Magnolia Lane Suite, and have 2 fun events using it coming in the month of July! I’ll be telling you all about one of them this afternoon and then if you live locally to me keep watching for Sunday’s blog post!
Good Morning Magnolia Card Tutorial
This stamp and die bundle is stunning! Bundles are an awesome way to save some cash, as when you grab a bundle, rather than the stamps and dies separately, you save 10%.
One of my favourite ways to really make a card special is to use a few layers, and this card demonstrates that perfectly! So, we have…. Designer Series Paper, stamping, die cuts, ribbons and a punched sentiment piece. Of course, you could go further and add rhinestones or sequins too!
Also, how cool are these colour combinations? The blue version is Seaside Spray, Night of Navy and Blueberry Bushel, while the pink one is Rococo Rose and Lovely Lipstick. I LOVE that the two sets of In Colours coordinate this year, actually the new In Colours coordinate very well with lots of the permanent Stampin’ Up! ink colours.

Hey Folks! I’ve got a slightly different style of card for me today (and another video… Yes! That’s 2 in less than a week!). I do love playing around with ink, whether that’s stamping, watercolouring, ink blending… etc.
I’ve been having an absolute blast crafting with my June Crafty Selections kit. This fun monthly kit contains a wonderful mix of Designer Series Paper, embellishments and more, and comes with a jam packed sheet of inspiration too!
You can get all the details about this month’s Crafty Selection Box HERE. Booking for this month’s box closes on Wednesday at midnight, and I would hate for you to miss out.
I’ve added a couple of bits to this months kit to create this card, in particular the Free and a Bird stamp and die bundle. I just can’t get enough of these birds, the are stunning simply stamped on their own, but really start to sing when they are coloured. This time I’ve used Blends, but I have a plan to watercolour them soon too!
The Stitched Nested Labels Dies are definitely a new favourite in my craft room. They’ve started to appear on a whole lot of projects, and I can see them being a staple for a long time to come!
Hey folks! Not only do I have a couple of fun card ideas, I am super excited to be sharing a video with you today. I asked on my Facebook page earlier in the week about whether you would like to see some random Facebook Lives, or regular video uploads, and the opinion was pretty mixed! So, I’ve decided that I’ll film when I can, and if I get in the odd Facebook Live too then that great! Anyway, yesterday James was home and so was able to look after Niamh for a little bit while I made today’s cards and video.
I have seen this type of card a couple of times recently, and I thought it was such a great way to share the new In Colour Designer Series Paper with you! I love the patterns in this years colour family Designer Series Paper stacks. They are just so easy to use. Each colour family, plus both sets of In Colours have a pack, all with the same patterns, and I might just have to have them all!
The sentiment on this first card (yes, I have 2 for you today!) is from Bloom and Grow. I am in LOVE with this stamp set, I can’t decide if its the pretty florals or the sentiments that’s getting my vote, but I can’t put it away none the less!
This card comes together really quickly, after you’ve done a bit of die cutting with the Rectangle Stitched Dies. I’ve matted it all on a card base of Terracotta Tile, and then matched the stamping and the Faceted Dot Embellishment.
Card Ideas Video
The second card uses the same idea as the first, but I’ve stepped it up a bit and paired it with the Well Said stamp set and Well Written dies. These have only recently found their way into my craft room, but I have to say I am loving using them!
The 5 new In Colours work so well as a colour combination, they really are a great addition to your crafty stash. I have a fun In Colour Club about to start and there are a couple of places left! You can find out all the details and sign up HERE. Booking closes tomorrow night (15th June) and midnight.
This week’s Facebook Live is a bit of a waffle-y one… I’ll warn you from the get go! But I’m super happy with the card, so I hope that you enjoy!
I’ve got a few things going on at the moment; 2 fabulous card classes in March and my Stash Builder Club too… so before we jump to the video I thought I would give you a quick over-view
March Card Class using Needlepoint Nook launches tomorrow! So check back to the blog for that!
My March Facebook Live Online Card Class launched earlier in the week. I am super excited about this one, I have 5 fun cards already made using the Painted Seasons Bundle from the Sale-a-bration 2nd Release that I cannot wait to share with you. There are 2 options for this class; either Class only, or class and cardstock pack. Check out THIS blog post for all the information!
Stash Builder Club… I LOVE this club. I did it a couple of years ago, and was reminded about it yesterday! It’s a monthly club that lasts 6 months, and each month you get to choose £25 worth of Stampin’ Up! goodies PLUS one of those months you also get to spend the Stampin’ Rewards and get at least £15 worth of goodies for FREE! Find out more and sign up HERE!
This fun fold, Double Fronted Card is super easy to make and is a lovely way to Jazz up a special card.
Highland Heather Card Base: 21 x 14.85 cm, scored at 10.5 cm. This is a standard sized card using A4 card stock, then cut 5 cm off one side
Very Vanilla: 20.5 x 14.3 cm, scored at 10.25 cm (or just folded in half!)
Short and sweet blog post this week… but I thought I would quickly write it before James gets himself out of bed!
Oh yes, it’s Sunday, and that only means on thing here at StampinByHannah…. it’s Facebook Live Day!
This week I thought I would take the opportunity to recap this year’s Sale-a-bration offers… and make 3 cards using the Hello Cupcake Stamp set.
This first card was my attempt at #simplestamping. I think this card would make a great quick make for that neighbours birthday you’ve forgotten, or change the sentiment for a fun Thank you or Just because card for your milkman or UPS man!
The second card was a slightly stepped up version of that cute note card. I swapped the card base for Mint Macaron Card Stock and added a layer of Very Vanilla. If you want to know my card measurements, I almost always us the same, you can find the over on my Standard Card Measurements Page.
I mentioned in the video there are 3 parts to Sale-a-bration:
Shop – Ever time you spend £45 (on anything on the Stampin’ Up! website) between now and the end of March, you earn a Sale-a-bration credits which you can swap in for fun Stamp Sets like the cute Hello Cupcake Set I used today. There are 2 items that require 2 credits, or a £90 spend at the back of the Sale-a-bration booklet
Host – Earn extra Stampin’ Rewards when you spend over £200 or host a party that spends over the same amount
Join – Become a part of Stampin’ Up!, choose £170 worth of goodies and pay just £99 (or spend an extra £26 and get the GORGEOUS Craft and Carry Tote too!) and then get at least 20% discount on all purchases, take part in team events (like yesterday’s Blog Hop) or just be a happy shopper!
The 3rd card is further stepped up, with a fussy cut cupcake and embossed circle… but it’s not quite as stepped up and my original design which also has Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper and a heat embossed sentiment.
Before I go, I just want to quickly remind you that booking for my January Craft Class closes tomorrow night at 10PM! You can find all the information and book your place HERE!
I would LOVE you to join me for my next Facebook Live which is next Sunday at 11AM… click over to Like my Facebook Page so you don’t miss it!
