This is the Share What You Love Suite gift set I created for my Mum to celebrate today, using the gorgeous products from the Gotta Have It All Bundle...

Share What You Love Mother's Day Gift Set | Gotta Have It All Bundle

Bundles: Gotta Have It All (149812).  Ink: Rich Razzleberry (126950), Old Olive (126953).  Card/Paper: Whisper White (106549).  Accessories: Whisper White Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes (145583).  Tools: Big Shote Die-Cutting Machine (143263), Gift Bag Punch Board (135862), 1-1/4" Circle Punch (119861), 2-1/4" Circle Punch (143720), Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue (110755), Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430).

Gotta Have It All Bundle - THREE FREE ITEMS
Gotta Have It All Bundle (149823) - $268.25

First, the Whisper White Narrow Note Card, which I have embossed with the Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, and finished with some floral images from the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.  The 2-1/4" Circle Punch is the perfect size for adding a decorative liner inside the flap of the Narrow Envelopes...

Share What You Love Mother's Day Gift Set | Gotta Have It All Bundle

It is sometimes hard to find stamps with mum spelt as "Mum", rather than "Mom".  For custom sentiments, you can't go past the fabulous Make a Difference stamp set!

Share What You Love Mother's Day Gift Set | Gotta Have It All Bundle

I gave my Mum a Bee Blend Seed Bomb - wildflower seeds in biodegradable packets that you can either intentionally plant or "throw and grow"!  These were gift wrapped in a handmade Gift Bag using the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper, which is heavyweight (compared to other designer series paper), so nice and sturdy...

Gotta Have It All

Okay, I confess... I purchased the Gotta Have It All Bundle from the gorgeous Share What You Love Suite.

Just Getting Started Bundle - ONE FREE ITEM

This bundle is great value for money as I got three free products valued at $62.  Plus I love, love, love the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Why?

  • The Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper has a whopping 24 sheets of 12" x 12" paper, 4 each of 6-double-sided designs.  That's twice the size of standard packs!
  • It is printed on heavyweight sheets, which means you can use it for more than card fronts... it's great as a pre-printed card base, envelopes, bags, boxes, and more!
  • Some of the gorgeous hand painted designs are finished with a translucent, pearlised finished, which gives projects a lovely, shimmery finish.

I recently attended a demonstrator-only event, hosted by Stampin' Up!, where we were fortunate to create with products from the Gotta Have It All Bundle, including the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.  This is the friendship card we created, with beautiful hand painted flowers...

Share What You Love Friendship Card | Gotta Have It All Bundle

Bundles: Gotta Have It All (149812).  Ink: Tuxedo Black Memento (132708), VersaMark (102283).  Card/Paper: Whisper White (106549), Vellum (106584), Tools: 1/2" Circle Punch (119869), Mini Glue Dots (103683), Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430).

Just Getting Started

For the month of May, Stampin' Up! have released the gorgeous Share What You Love Suite, available in a selection of three amazing bundles that includes free products.  I have been playing around with the supplies that come in the Just Getting Started Bundle...

Just Getting Started Bundle - ONE FREE ITEM

This bundle is designed for the newer stamper in mind, and has everything a new crafter needs to start stamping and experiencing the joy of creativity.  The bonus is that the Just Getting Started Bundle also includes one free product to help you in your creativity... the Very Vanilla Note Cards & Envelopes, valued at $12.75.  I've used those handy note cards to create this sweet card...

A Little More, Please

I am really excited about the new Share What You Love Suite!  This gorgeous set of coordinating products was created for Stampin' Up!'s 30-year anniversary, to honour demonstrators for sharing what they love for the past 30-years.  That's so sweet!

The individual products in the Share What You Love Suite will be available in the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue from 1 June.  However, for the month of May, you can purchase them in an early release promotion.  There are three bundles to choose from...

Just Getting Started Bundle - ONE FREE ITEM

Share What You Love Embellishment Kit

You will never be short of pretty embellishments with this kit!  I used the large label from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit for stamping the sentiment, attached the silver paper clip with a length of pearlised thread tied in a bow, then finished it with a gorgeous silver adhesive-backed rose.

Share What You Love Friendship Card | A Little More, Please Bundle

You too can get the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit as a free gift if you purchase either the A Little More, Please or Gotta Have It All Bundles during May.

Black Ice Technique

Earlier this week I shared how to create a glamorous focal point for a paper crafting project using the Black Ice Technique.  Here's two more ideas, this feminine one is stunning with Copper Foil, and stamped using the Perennial Birthday stamp set...

Perennial Birthday Card

Stamps: Perennial Birthday (wood: 145757, clear: 145760).  Ink: Basic Black Archival (140931), VersaMark (102283).  Card/Paper: Whisper White Thick (140490), Basic Black (121688), Copper Foil Sheets (142020).  Accessories: Touches of Nature Elements (144216), 1/4" Copper Trim (144179), Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder (109130).  Tools: Heat Tool (129056), Embossing Buddy (103083), Mini Glue Dots (103683), Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430).

Perennial Birthday Card

I love how this birthday card turned out, especially the textural elements to compliment the texture in the Black Ice Technique: clear-embossed black background, wooden elements and Copper Trim.

Even though I've shown you the Black Ice Technique on a Mother's Day card and this floral birthday card, it definitely isn't limited to feminine projects.  Here's the same layout and technique on a masculine card using the Black Ice Technique and Colorful Seasons stamp set...

Colorful Seasons Birthday Card

Stamps: Colorful Seasons (photopolymer: 143726).  Ink: Basic Black Archival (140931), VersaMark (102283).  Card/Paper: Whisper White Thick (140490), Basic Black (121688), Gold Foil Sheets (132622), Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack (144177).  Accessories: Linen Thread (104199), Pick A Pattern Black Washi Tape (144166), Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder (109130).  Tools: Heat Tool (129056), Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430).

Colorful Seasons Birthday Card

This card is gorgeous in Gold Foil with black and natural accents.  I especially love the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper background, and I am so pleased that this product is continuing into the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue.  However, it's the only current Designer Series Paper that will be available after 31 May; all others are being retired.  Make sure you get your favourite while it's still available.

I was introduced to Stampin' Up! a few years ago and I quickly fell in love with their high-quality, coordinating products and, soon after, became an Independent Stampin' Up!

I enjoy sharing what I know with others and inspiring their stamping creativity.
