Early Release Share What You Love Bundles

Share What You Love Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Does Stampin' Up! Early Release Products get you revved up?   Yay, me too!  The 2018-2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog starts June 1, 2018, but.... there a few sweet deals that you can pick up in May!  See the Share What You Love Bundles and the In Color Ink Bundle in this Brochure.

Everything from the Early Release Share What You Love Bundles are so gorgeous, it's hard to know where to begin.  So I made a couple of cards, a Thank You Gift and a Share What You Love Sampler.  Beginner Card Makers, you'll find detailed instructions just below on how to make the pretty card in the center.

Just Getting Started Card Making

How to Make this Just Getting Started Card

This simple, simple card can be made by anyone.   I only used the Just Getting Started Bundle plus my Stampin' Trimmer to make this simple elegant card.  Everything you need is included in this bundle including Very Vanilla Note Cards and Envelopes, Inks and stamps.  The flowers and greenery were stamped directly on the card and envelope.  To lightly color in the flower, I used the small wash stamp, inked it up with Grapefruit Grove Ink, then stamp it twice on a scrap paper and finally stamped within my flower.  This stamping technique is called stamping off.  Then, I cut two pieces of Very Vanilla Card Stock for my sentiment.  I used the larger one as a mat and the smaller one to stamp my sentiment with Old Olive ink.  Card Stock sizes are 2" x 2-1/4" and 2-1/8" x 2-3/8".

Share What You Love Handmade Gift

Ever wish for an inexpensive, but pretty gift to say thanks.  I made this simple Thank You Gift with the Clear Mini Boxes and some of my pretties from my Got to Have it All Bundle.

Share What You Love Sampler

A sampler is a great way to display your pretties.  And as an added bonus, you can use it as an accent piece for your home decor.
