Well, the Stampin' Up! Artisan Team has something special for you today. While Stampin' Up! is preparing to release it's new annual catalog on June 1st, they are releasing a very small piece early called Share What you Love.  #soexciting

Stampin' Up! is releasing this Share What You Love Suite in bundles in the following ways:

          1. JUST GETTING STARTED (149524): a bundle for the stamper just getting their toes wet
          2. A LITTLE MORE, PLEASE (149525): a bundle for the stamping ninja
          3. GOTTA HAVE IT ALL (149526): enough said

The Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team is showing you ways in which to use these products without using anything outside of the bundles. Today I'll be showing you projects for the JUST GETTING STARTED bundle. Included in this bundle is the following but keep in mind these bundles will not be available subsequent to May 31st so be sure to snag them as soon as your order period begins!

· Love What You Do Stamp Set
· Grapefruit Grove Ink Pad
· Very Vanilla 8-1/2 X 11” Cardstock
· Old Olive Ink Pad
· Clear Block E
· Very Vanilla Note Cards & Envelopes

Note: Demonstrators are able to pre-purchase products from April 9th to April 30th. Customers are able to purchase these bundles beginning May 1st to May 31st.

Stamping Off: // It doesn't get much easier than this. The floral image is first stamped using Old Olive Ink on a scrap piece of paper and then stamped onto a piece of card stock 4" x 5.25". This technique is called "stamping off". The sentiment is stamped directly onto the Very Vanilla Cardstock. 

Distressing:// Each of my three cards have a little distressing on the edges. To make this a little easier, rub water onto the edges of the card. Then roll the paper around with your fingers allowing the paper to roll and wrinkle.

Repeat Stamping: // Repeat stamping is when you stamp the same image over and over to create a background. In the card above you can see that I used several floral images over and over again without any clear pattern. However, on the card below I used the 'splat' in a vertical direction.

Thank you so much for dropping by today! But don't stop here - be sure to keep hopping to check out my amazing friend Charlet Mallet!
