Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop - Design Sketch Challenge

Welcome to the 21st Edition of the
Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop, featuring a Design Sketch Challenge! You'll see projects from stampers from around the world--I'm in Colorado Springs, Colorado. (Note: I can only sell to customers in the US, so any prices are in USD)

We hop the first Friday of each month, and my project features the Share What You Love Early Release products, which will be in the upcoming Stampin' Up! 2018-19 Annual Catalog, but are available to order NOW!

GSFBH May 2018 Design Sketch

The Share What You Love Early Release features 3 Bundles of products from the upcoming Share What You Love Suite that you can order right NOW. You can browse the products in My Online Store, or click the image or link to view/download the PDF flyer below:


You can also order the set of (5) 2018-2020 In Color ink pads right now. You can see each of those In Colors in an earlier blog post HERE.

I used the Gotta Have It All Bundle for my project--it's the only bundle that includes the GORGEOUS Pearlized Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper. For me, the paper pulls the entire suite of products together, and makes it super easy to create fabulous projects with virtually no effort. You really have to see it in person to catch the subtle beauty, but you can at least see all the versatile designs depicted below:

The Gotta Have It All Bundle is also the only bundle that includes the Statement of My Heart stamp, which I did not use on my project today, but it is actually printed on the lid of the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit box (which you can see peeking out behind the card in my first picture). It also includes two more stamp sets, one of which has a whopping 143 STAMPS in it -- called Make a Difference. The other stamp set is called Love What You Do, which I used to stamp my card today.

The Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper is a bit unique, in that it contains (24) 12"x12" sheets, 4 each of 6 double-sided designs (rather than only 12 sheets). There are a ton of Stampin' Up! colors that coordinate with this beautiful paper, one of which is Tranquil Tide, which I used to stamp the greeting, and the tiny flowers in the background. In my opinion, Pool Party also coordinates, although it's not listed as a coordinating color in the product description. I used a little strip of Pool Party card stock as a layer on the card, and also stamped both the Pool Party card stock strip, and a shadow of the greeting, with Pool Party ink.

The Share What You Love Artisan Pearls also come in the Gotta Have It All Bundle, and I used a few of those on my card. The laser cut greeting label, mini silver paper clip, and the pearlized thread are all from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit, the full contents of which you can see below. The box itself is stunning and sturdy, and is big enough to hold a handful of standard sized cards and envelopes for gifting!

Stampin' Supplies: Share What You Love Gotta Have It All Bundle, Crumb Cake Card Stock, Pool Party Card Stock and Ink Pad, Tranquil Tide Card Stock and Ink Pad, Mini Stampin' Dimensionals, 2-1/4" Circle Punch, Triple Banner Punch, SNAIL Adhesive, Paper Snips, Stampin' Trimmer (to cut and score card stock), Grid Paper.

If you are in the US and you want to get a hard copy of the upcoming Stampin' Up! 2018-19 Annual Catalog, drop me an email with your mailing address, and we can get that coordinated!
