StampinByHannah World Card Making Day Facebook Live!

Stampin' Up! World Card Making Day Sale 2018

Yes, it is World Card Making Day… and to celebrate I did a special Facebook Live! (Special because I usually go Live on a Sunday Morning, but we are off to see our new Niece tomorrow…. so pulling it forward a day seemed the right thing to do!).

We made 4 fun cards this week, and used a mountain  of goodies, and created on hell of a mess in my craft room! However, I LOVE doing these… so much that from next week I’ll be going Live each and every Sunday morning at 11AM.

How to make a fun wreath Birthday Card using Petal Palette from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

The first 2 cards used the same design, but both show how you can completely change a card by changing which stamp set you use! The 1st Christmas card uses the Peaceful Noel Stamp Set, with the Birthday version features Petal Palette. Both use the Merry Christmas Thinlits and Joyeous Noel Glimmer Paper.

Christmas Countdown | Stampin’ Blends at Christmas!

Joy to the World Christmas Card using Alcohol Markers and Stampin' Up! products

StampinByHannah Christmas Countdown Stampin’ Blends at Christmas!

Christmas Countdown Video Tutorial Series StampinByHannah Stampin' Up! UK

Oh my goodness… Yes! It’s that time of the year already! The Start of my Annual Christmas Countdown.

Over the next 12 weeks I have 12 fun Festive projects for you each and every Friday…. and I thought I would start with a simple Christmas Card

Fun Christmas Card using Stampin' Blends Alcohol markers and Feathers and Frost from Stampin' Up!

I had lots of fun making this card, with the little details; the background stamping, the Stampin’ Blends coloring and the pop of Heat Embossing.

Stampin’ Blends are so fun! You need to be a little careful with your Stamping ink choice when using Stampin’ Blends, but really it just comes to ensuring you stamp using a Water-based ink for the images you wish to colour. What is so great is that ALL Stampin’ Up! Classic Ink’s are Water-Based…. so you can use your Stampin’ Blends alongside your Stampin’ Inks! How cool!

There are now TONS of Stampin’ Blends colours available with even more being added in this years Autumn Winter catalogue. They are super easy to colour with and come in colour pairs for perfect Blending. I am planning some more Blends videos very soon…. I’ve got myself a little bit addicted!

Christmas Countdown Simple Christmas Card using Feathers and Frost from Stampin' Up!

I cannot wait to share the rest of this years Christmas Countdown with you….

Make It Monday | Dashing Along Designer Series Paper…

Simple Christmas Card using Designer Series Paper and Timeless Tidings from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah Make It Monday | Dashing Along Designer Series Paper…

Make It Monday banner

So, today is Make It Monday, and I do have a video….. but I don’t actually have a card to make! I do have 3 cards to share with you though.

September sees a fun offer; Dashing Along Designer Series Paper is available for FREE when you place an order of £200. It is added automatically to your basket when you shop online. OR, you could also bag a pack of this stunning paper if you host a party which orders over the same amount.

Fun Christmas Card using Patterned Paper with Dashing Along DSP from Stampin' Up!

This pack of Designer Series Paper contains 12 sheets, 4 of each of 3 double sided designs. It is designed to coordinate with the Dashing Deer Stamp and Die Bundle…. but of course, I didn’t grab that one in my Autumn Winter order did I?! Silly me! So, instead, I thought I would share how easily this Designer Series Paper coordinates with some of the other Stamp Sets in the catalogue.

The red card uses the fun Timeless Tidings stamp set that matches the Timeless Tidings Card Kit (still need to have a go at putting those together!), while the card with the strips of Designer Series Paper uses the Feathers and Frost stamp set.

Merry Christmas card using Merry Die Cut from Stampin' Up!

This 3rd card, I think is my favourite, pairs the Dashing Along Designer Series Paper with the Merry Christmas To All Stamp and Die Bundle and a piece of that stunning Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper.

Cute Christmas Card using Peaceful Noel from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah Peaceful Noel Hand-stamped Christmas Card using Stampin’ Up! Products

 

Sorry this blog post is a little later then usual…. I prioritised having dinner with my extended family last night over writing my blog! I know, it’s shocking… but it turns out that my 18 year old Sister in law makes a mean Lasagne! So, today’s card….

Get the Stampin' Up! Autumn Winter 2018 Catalogue

I sent a sample of this card out with each of my first batch of the new Stampin’ Up! Autumn Winter Catalogue. I do have a few left so if you haven’t got a catalogue yet, get one ordered ASAP using THIS form!

Want to know how I created those corner details? Check the video for all the info…

I am a little bit in love with this stamp set; Peaceful Noel is the perfect Christmas stamp set with lots of winter-y images that layer beautifully and have a hint of that watercolour effect I love so much!

The other thing I love about this card is the colour combination; Sahara Sand, Merry Merlot, and Shaded Spruce with a hint of copper. So pretty…. especially with that stunning Merry Merlot/Copper Reversible Ribbon

StampinByHannah How to make a Twist Top Box using Stampin’ Up! products

I do love a fun box…. and I think this one is particularly good! There are loads of things that you could use if for; candles, a mini bath bomb, chocolate, jewellery…. and I’m sure you’ll think of something I haven’t!

4 sided twist top box video

I was inspired by a swap I received from the lovely Jillian probably about a year ago. Jillian’s version was a little smaller and was perfect for holding a trio of tealights, but I wanted something a little bigger…

Measurements:

Card stock: 8-1/4 x 6″ (21 x 15 cm)

Score on the long side at 2, 4, 6, and 8″ (5, 10, 15 and 20 cm)

Make It Monday | Blended Seasons and Watercolour Pencils

Make it monday Watercolour Pencils and Blended Seasons using Stampin' Up! products

StampinByHannah Make It Monday Blended Seasons and Watercolour Pencils

Make It Monday banner

I’ve been sharing a whole heap of projects using the fabulous August Exclusive Stamp Set; Blended Seasons this month…. you can find heaps of Blended Season Inspiration over on my dedicated Pinterest Board, as well as in my Facebook Live video from the beginning of the month.

How to use watercolour Pencils and Blended Seasons from Stampin' Up!

I’ve had masses of fun with this stamp set, particularly using the August Exclusive Watercolour Pencils… Today’s video shows several ways to use the Stampin’ Up! Watercolour Pencils and a couple of different effects you can create with them too!

I do have some top tips for using Watercolour Pencils:

  • add pencil to areas where shadows would naturally appear
  • blend out the pencil using a damp paint brush or aqua painter
  • use a Wink of Stella Brush Pen to complete the blending and add some sparkle!
  • You could also use a Blender Pen to blend out the colour

How to create a sparkly look with watercolour pencils from Stampin' Up!

The Watercolour Pencils Assortment 2 and Blended Seasons stamp and die bundle both retire on the 31st August… so grab them today before they go forever!

Make It Monday | Twisted Gate Fold Card using Garden Impressions from Stampin’ Up!

Pretty floral twisted gate fold video tutorial using Stampin' Up! products

StampinByHannah Make It Monday Twisted Gate Fold Card using Garden Impressions from Stampin’ Up!

Make It Monday banner

Do you have a list of projects you have to have a go at? I know I do… actually the notes section of my phone is full of project ideas, lists of videos to make, and creative musings! Today’s project is one that has been on that list for quite some time, but I think that it was worth the wait….

Make It Monday Twisted Gate Fold Card using Abstract Impressions from Stampin' Up!

I am loving this Designer Series Paper… its the Garden Impressions 6 x 6″ paper stack, which I will admit I really wasn’t taken with on first viewing, but I have used it SO much! I think I’m going to have to grab another pack soon! It coordinates with the Abstract Impressions Stamp and Die Bundle which includes a heap of really pretty sentiments and gorgeous flower stamps… and then there are the dies! Check out the images at the bottom of this post to see them in detail.

While I’m on a coordination kick, its also worth noting that the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper also coordinates with a whole HEAP of Stampin’ Up! colours: Calypso Coral, Mango Melody, Melon Mambo, Night of Navy, Pacific Point, Petal Pink, Powder Pink, Shaded Spruce, Soft Seafoam, So Saffron and Whisper White! All of which are available in ink and card stock, for fully coordinating projects. AND there are ribbons, and embellishments available too! Isn’t that awesome?!

Measurements:

Card Base: Soft Seafoam Card Stock; 21 x 14.8 cm

Scored on the long side at 7 and 14 cm. Then, score the end panels from top right to bottom left.

Whisper White: 6.5 x 14.3 cm. Cut 3 pieces, cut one piece from top right to bottom left, and one from top left to bottom right.

Designer Series Paper: 6 x 13.8 cm. Cut 2 pieces, and cut one piece from top right to bottom left, and one from top left to bottom right.

How to make a twisted gate fold card using Garden Impressions from Stampin' Up!

Cutting the Designer Series Paper the right way is important… unless you want different patterns on the front and back of your card, then you could cut them both the same.

Make It Monday | Stitched Around All Pocket Card

Make It Monday Video Tutorial How to make a Pocket Card using Stitched All Around from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah Make It Monday Stitched Around All Pocket Card

Make It Monday banner

Today’s project is a fun one… we all send cards all the time, but why does a card have to be card stock folded in half?! I think today’s project would make a super cute invitation, or a fun ‘just because’ card, or a great way to dress up a gift card!

Making a fun fancy fold Pocket Card using Gorgeous Grape and Stitched All Around from Stampin' Up!

Firstly, lets just talk about those colours! Oh my goodness I am in LOVE with this colour combination: Coastal Cabana, Gorgeous Grape and Petal Pink. One of the best things about Stampin’ Up! products is the coordination. The Card stock is the same colour as the Ink, is the same colour as the Embellishments, is the same colour as the ribbon, Designer Series Paper and more! I would LOVE you to try Stampin’ Up! inks…. we have SO many fabulous colours. You can check them all out HERE

This is simple project…. really it’s just an envelope with a fun insert! But there are SO many ways to dress this up… I would LOVE to see your versions! Share them with me over on my Facebook Group!

Measurements:

Card stock: 7-7/8x 7-7/8″

Punch and score using the Envelope Punch Board at 3-3/8″

Insert:

Gorgeous Grape: 4 x 5-1/2″

Whisper White: 3-3/4 x 5-1/4″

Belly Band:

Petal Pink: 1-1/2 x 11″

How to make a fun Pocket Card using the Envelope Punch Board

My other love at the moment is the fabulous Stitched All Around Bundle! That label die is finding it’s way onto a heap of projects at the moment. Did you see my Notecards and Envelopes Project last week… it used the same die, but it looks so different!

Memories and More Desk Storage Box with Pen Holder

How to make a storage box for your Memories and More cards using Stampin' Up! card stock and Designer Series Paper

StampinByHannah Memories and More Desk Storage Box with Pen Holder

I’m on a bit of a storage making kick at the moment… I think it’s because I keep looking at furniture I can’t buy (yet!), and so making my own crafty storage is a reasonable alternative! I have told the story before about how I was led to card making from scrapbooking, but I don’t think I’ve ever said anything about how much I LOVE pocket scrapbooking! It’s just so quick, and you can whip up and album in just a few hours. My Wedding Album (still under development… and currently at the bottom of a large storage box, because you know; moving!) is mostly made up of Pockets, with some 12 x 12 pages thrown in!

Fun storage for Project Life or Memories and More Cards Video Tutorial

These are some of the new Memories and More cards too… so pretty! I am planning on using these to catch up with my One Little Word Album for 2018, which I am slightly (read: 4 months!) behind with.

Measurements:

Box 1: 10 x 3-1/2″ (25 x 9 cm)

Score on the long side at 4-1/4, 4-3/4, 9, and 9-1/2″ (10.5, 12, 22.5 and 24 cm)

Score on the short side at 1/2″ (1.5 cm)

Box 2: 9 x 3″ (22 x 7.5 cm)

Score on the long side at 3-1/4, 4-1/4, 7-1/2 and 8-1/2″ (8, 10.5, 18.5 and 21 cm)

Score on the short side at 1″ (2.5 cm)

Box 3: 4-1/2 x 3″ (11 x 7.5 cm)

Score on the long side at 1, 2, 3, and 4″ (2.5, 5, 7.5 and 10 cm)

Score on the short side at 1″ (2.5 cm)
