Your... Special Day

A few weeks ago I happened to be online at just the right time to see a demonstration by Ronda Wade on how to create a fun, tri-fold card.  I love the simple design of this project!  For my tri-fold card (which fits a C6 Envelope), the card base is 12" x 6", then scored at 1-3/4", 4-3/4", and 7-3/4".  The Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper is perfect for the card base as the hand-painted designs are printed on heavy-weight sheets.  Here's the front of the card, stamped with gorgeous images from the Love What You Do stamp set...

Love What You Do Tri-Fold Card

Bundles: Gotta Have It All (149812).  Ink: Rich Razzleberry (126950), Old Olive (126953).  Card/Paper: Basic Black (121688), Whisper White (106549).  Tools:  1-1/2" Circle Punch (138299), 2-1/4" Circle Punch (143720), Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430).

I wanted a custom sentiment for this card, so I opted to stamp the individual letters from the Make A Difference stamp set.  The thing about the hand-written letters in this set is that they are so forgiving to stamp, and look great even if you've stamped a little off!  Here's the next layer of my tri-fold card...

Ohhh, those Pearlized Doilies really do shimmer and give a luxurious feel to any project.  And finally, the inside of the card...

Love What You Do Tri-Fold Card

This style of card is simple, yet it has a lot of wow-factor.  Plus, it's a great way to show off the fabulous Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.

The products used to create this card can be found in the Gotta Have It All Bundle, which is everything from the gorgeous Share What You Love Suite, including three free products!

Thank You Flowers

Florals are definitely the theme of this sweet thank you card.  You can see them in the background from the Lovely Floral embossing folder, the stamping on the card base, and the hand painted designs in the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Speaking of the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper, the colours I've chosen for this sweet thank you card were pulled from paper:  Mint Macaron, Old Olive and Tranquil Tide...

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

Bundles: Gotta Have It All (149812).  Ink: Tranquil Tide (144085), Old Olive (126953).  Card/Paper: Whisper White (106549).  Accessories: Pearls Basic Jewels ()144219.  Tools:  Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430).

What this photo doesn't really show is that lovely shine on the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Some of the gorgeous hand painted designs in this paper pack are finished with a translucent, pearlised finished, which gives projects a lovely, shimmery finish.  Here it is from another angle so you can see it...

You will notice this pearl-theme run through the whole Share What You Love Suite.  That's because this suite was created for Stampin' Up!'s 30-year anniversary... pearl anniversary!

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).

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 have a translucent, pearlised finish, which gives projects a lovely shimmer.

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).

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