Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah today… usually at this time on a Wednesday evening (19:30 UK time) I am going Live either on YouTube or Facebook. However, this week I am right at the end of a course I’ve been studying for for the past 3 years, and I’m spending all my spare moments getting my portfolio ready for submission. So, rather than do a Live this week, I have a pre-recorded video instead. I will be back next Wednesday, Live on my Facebook page with some fun ideas using some of the Sale-a-bration goodies…. but for now, here is my first look at the Abigail Rose suite…
When I first pull out brand new products, I will quite often turn to the Stampin’ Up! catalogue for inspiration. This card is inspired by one of the cards on the suite page in the catalogue. BUT I have made it my own by changing some of the layers and colours. This isn’t my usual style of card, but I really love it!
Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah this evening, for a very quick blog post…
I went Live on YouTube on Wednesday, and so the replay is now available. But before I get to that, I want to let you know about the Stampin’ Up! Last Chance Sale which is now on and includes a bunch of bargains from the January-June Mini Catalogue. You can find all the items in the Online Store until the end of the month.
This week’s YouTube Live featured the Perfectly Pencilled Designer Series Paper which is also part of this months Card Club Kit!
Card Club is a fabulous monthly inspiration kit, which includes all the pre-cut pieces to make 3 fabulous cards. All you need to do is add the sentiments, inks and adhesives… but you can also add these to your kit if you like! Club costs £12.50 per month, plus postage. Just drop me an email at stampinbyhannah[at]outlook.com to join in!
Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah this week for my YouTube Live replay. This week I have had the Sun Prints suite out on my desk following last weekends blog hop, and I have had so much fun playing with it that I thought I would share it again on YouTube Live this week.
Seeing as its Jubilee Weekend, I thought it only right that I use Red, Blue and White… or Night of Navy, Sweet Sorbet, Basic White (and Sahara Sand).
I absolutely LOVE a wreath on a card, and so I couldn’t not get this set of dies… which then led to the stamp set, and the whole suite! The wreath die on its own is really pretty, however, I like to step things up a little, and these flowers also form a perfectly sized wreath on the front of a card.
Hello! Did you catch my YouTube Live this week? If not, don’t panic the reply is linked later in this blog post. We had heaps of fun this week making a couple of cards using Masking techniques, and the Rainbows of Happiness stamp and die bundle. I absolutely LOVE this stamp and die set, it’s just got very happy vibes!
This card is so bright and happy. I couldn’t not make a rainbow card in rainbow colours; Poppy Parade, Mango melody, Granny Apple Green and Pacific Point. But the part of this card I really love is the background, those dimensional, sparkly, Embossing Paste Rainbows! To create those rainbows, I made a mask by die cutting the rainbow from a piece of Window Sheet, and then added the embossing paste over the top.
This weeks YouTube Live used the fabulous Artfully Layered suite from the January-June Mini Catalogue. I have been having great fun with these products, and this month’s Card Club uses the same Designer Series Paper.
The first card we made was inspired by this week’s Global Design Project Sketch Challenge. I don’t make many slim line cards, but I thought it was an interesting idea.
This card is 21 x 15.8 cm, scored at 7.4 cm on the short side…. and it fits in the Stampin’ Up! Slimline Envelopes too! The card base is Mint Macaron, and the circle die cut from the Artfully Composed Designer Series Paper.
I tried something with this card I hadn’t done before, and added Adhesive sheet to the back of some Vellum before using the coordinating dies to cut these fun leaves. It works really well… and you cannot tell there is any adhesive there at all. I finished this one with a stamped sentiment a trio of the Faux Sea glass Shapes.
This week’s second card was inspired by a card from one of the Stampin’ Up! Artisans. While she used a slightly different technique, I really liked the general feel of this card, and had to have a go! The leaves were both stamped in Soft Seafoam onto Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper, and then watercoloured with a combination of Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive and Mossy Meadow. I LOVE the final look!
If you have enjoyed today’s project, I have a Card Club for April that uses the Artfully Composed Designer Series Paper (and you can always add the Artfully Layered stamp set too!). Club is just £12.50 per month, for 5 months. Sign up by dropping me an email HERE.
