Share What You Love Suite


Today's card is yet another card created from the Share What You Love Suite, which I've fallen in love with.  You won't find this suite in the current catalog, so don't bother hunting for it.  Its from the upcoming Stampin' Up! annual catalog coming out June 1.  However, demonstrators already have early access to this set, and customers will be able to order this early release suite of products on May 1.   

In addition to the card ideas I've posted for you to CASE (Copy and Share Everything), Pinterest boards are already filled with creative cards giving you even more ways to use this suite.  

The Share What you Love Suite, is a stamp set, a very special 12 X 12 paper pack and a set of embellishments that coordinates with the new In Colors, and gives you a wonderful starting point for creating new cards with products from the annual catalog Stampin' Up! will release June 1.  There are bundles Stampin' Up! created for a new crafter, a bundle for a stamper who owns more supplies, and a bundle for those stampers who want it all.  Today, I'm using the Love What You Do stamp set, the new Grapefruit Grove ink pad along with Old Olives ink pad and other Stampin' Up! supplies to showcase another look with the Share What You Love Prerelease Suite.                









Today's card uses a basecard of thick Very Vanilla, then a banner is created from Grapefruit Grove and a piece of Very Vanilla stamped with images from this stamp set using Grapefruit Grove ink.  Then there is an image layer where I've stamped and fussy cut the Grapefruit Grove flowers.  The tiny flowers were stamped in Old Olive, fussy cut, and popped up on mini Dimensionals.  The sentiment was stamped in Old Olive and fussy cut before popping it up on Dimensionals.

The background for the image piece was created by lightly sponging a small piece of Very Vanilla with Grapefruit Grove.
    
    




I stamped the small leaves in Old Olive and fussy cut them out, but they could have just as easily been stamped directly on the Very Vanilla background to save time.    

I used an Aqua Painter to lightly color the triple flower heads  The stamp set includes an image that can be used to color the flower heads, but the Aqua Painter and an ink pad give me better control of how thick the ink is applies to the flowers.  You results may vary.  

The ribbon and bow are created from the 1/8" sheer Old Olive ribbon.  This is one of y favorite ribbons and I'm so happy to see it will be carried over to the new catalog.  A few small pearls were added to centers of the tiny flowers.

I've shown you several cards over the past couple of weeks using this Share What You Love Suite.  All of these cards have been created using minimal supplies.  This suite also includes printed papers, coordinating ribbons, and other embellishments that will help you make more sophisticated cards and will help you get the most from your investment in this suite.  We all love seeing how we can stretch our crafting purchases in as many ways as possible.  You'll love adding this beautiful suite to your collection when it becomes available May 1.  

 

    





Here's a quick look at what's in each bundle.  There are three bundles plus the 5 new In Color stamp pads that are part of this early release offer.

The first Share What you Love Bundle is for a crafter with limited supplies who is just beginning to experience the joy of creativity.




The second bundle is for crafters looking to hone their skills with a few more items to help you push your creative boundaries without pushing you over the edge.  This  bundle will include not only the Love What you Do Stamp set, but a unique alphabet stamp set as well as several other new catalog items.


  

The third bundle is for those who have to have it all. The Share What you Love Specialty Designer Series Paper in this bundle is a double set.  Normally our 12 X 12 Designer Series Paper include 12 sheets.  This set of Specialty paper contains 24 sheet!   Each bundle comes with one, two or three free items that coordinate with your bundle.  




You're going to want to get your hands on this bundle to update your stampin' stash with some of the latest colors, papers and stamp sets.  Watch for more ideas for using this suite in a few days.  Set you budget for next month to include one of these bundles and the 5 new In Color stamp pads.  The new In Color Stamp pads are available to order May 1-31, also, and you'll save 10% when you purchase these lovely new In Colors stamp pads between May 1-31.  These In Colors are packaged in the new style stamp cases, which are part of the Color Revamp in the new, June catalog.

Sneak Peek Share What you Love from Stampin' Up! Preorder coming May 1

  • Share What You Love Preorder coming May 1-31
  • Join us for the April 22 Card Class
  • New items available on the Clearance Rack 

Share What You Love Prerelease


To continue the series over the past few days, I've created another card with the Share What You Love Suite.  You're probably already looking forward to May 1 when Stampin' Up! offers this Prerelease suite from the new catalog coming out in June.  The Share What you Love Suite, is a new stamp and embellishment suite coming out in June, with the release of the new annual Stampin' Up! catalog.   There are bundles Stampin' Up! created for new crafter, a bundle for a stamper who owns more supplies, and a bundles for those stampers who want it all.  Today, I'm using the Love What You Do stamp set, the new Grapefruit Grove ink pad along with Old Olives ink and other Stampin' Up! supplies to showcase another look with the Share What You Love Prerelease Suite.                









Today's card uses a basecard of Old Olive, then a layer of Very Vanilla dry embossed with the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder.  The image block is Very Vanilla with a mat of Old Olive.  

On the image block I created a green wash background by pressing ink into the cover of my Old Olive stamp pad, then adding water from the Aqua Painter to water it down a bit, and then used the Aqua Painter to brush the watercolor background onto the Very Vanilla oval.  The flowers are stamped in one of the new In Colors, Grapefruit Grove.  Then I used the Aqua Painter again and picked up a little color from the Grapefruit Grove stamp pad to add color to the heads of the flowers.
    
    




I stamped the sentiment in Old Olive and then punched it out with the Tailored Tag Punch from the Occasions catalog.  

I punched out two more elements with the Tailored Tag Punch from Old Olive and used it to frame the  sentiment.  The I used a die cut element from the Petals & More dies, cut it in half and glued the pieces so just the end pieces stuck out on each end of the sentiment block. 

The bow is created from the Peekaboo Peach 5/8" Crinkled Seam Binding.  A few small pearls were added.

You've seen addition cards I've made with this set in previous posts, but here is a collection of some of the cards I've created with this beautiful set and just a few simple products.

    





There are three bundles plus the 5 new In Color stamp pads that are part of this early release bundle.

Color Revamp Coming in June


When the new Stampin' Up! annual catalog is released in June, you'll see the Color Revamp with changes to stamp pads and reinkers, cardstock, and markers.  You'll want to know which colors are retiring, which colors will be added, and there are even a few retired colors that will return to the core colors.  Read about all the Color Revamp changes here.   





There is also news about updates to the Stampin' Up! stamp pads and stamp pad cases as well.  See the changes planned for products in the June catalog.  


Last-Chance Products Lists to help you reorganize your craft room before the new catalog release.


The release of the Last-Chance Product Lists is always filled with anticipation as well as sadness.  Start marking up your current catalogs so you know which items will retire so you can order your favorites before they're gone.  With the new Annual Catalog coming June 2, you'll want to know which current products will retire and which will carry over to the new catalog year.  

To view all of the retiring products, visit my online store.  This is your best source to see if the product you want is still available.  As items sell out, they will no longer be listed in my online store.  

To download the .pdf versions of the Last-Chance Lists, click the links below each image below.  


Most items are only available until they sell out.  Stamp sets will be available until May 25.  

Clarification:  Bundles that carry over to the new catalog are on the retired list because they will no longer receive special bundle pricing.  They will only be priced as individual items.  If you want a bundle listed in the current catalogs, purchase the bundles now from the current catalogs to ensure you receive the 10% bundle savings listed in the current catalog.

Clarification:  All of the ink pads are on the Last-Chance List. But don't worry, or panic like I did when I saw them on the Last-Chance List.  Not all the ink pad colors are retiring.  Stampin' Up! is improving its ink pad cases as the dies for making the ink pad cases are coming to their end-of-life. Stampin' Up! is using this as an opportunity to improve the design, and to do it at the same time as the Color Revamp to reduce the number of overall changes to the product line.   

The new ink pad cases will still fit your Stampin' Up! Color Caddy, although a bit more roomy, so don't spin it too fast.  The covers will fit tighter and they will open more easily with less chance of the cover separating for the pad while opening.   Stampin' Up! is also adding a defoamer to the ink to reduce bubbles and to give cleaner stamped images.  The new reinkers will include the defoamer.  You will only want to use the new reinkers with your new stamp pads.  The existing reinkers do not include a defoamer.
