Share What You Love for PP390

Hello and Happy Sunday to you! I’ve been busy in my studio today working on a few different projects and wanted to share this card with you today. Usually when I am searching for inspiration to get started on a project, I usually look to an online challenge for a little “creative mojo”. This morning, I headed over to one of my favorite challenge sites, The Paper Players, to see what they were sharing this week. Jaydee created an awesome sketch this week and I couldn’t wait to play along.
I decided it was time to finally start using some brand new stamps, papers and embellishments from the Share What You Love Suite of products from Stampin’ Up! The collection is available to demonstrators now and customers can start purchasing different bundles from this suite starting May 1st. I’ll have more info on that later. 

The stamps and papers in this collection are gorgeous! For my focal floral image, I stamped the watercolored background first in Berry Burst ink, then stamped the flowers over the color in Momento ink. Then I fussy cut the flower trio and covered them in the Wink of Stella glitter brush. Then I inked up the watercolor wash again in Tranquil Tide ink. Using a piece of scrap paper, I stamped the image once, then once more before stamping it onto the Whisper White cardstock so that the ink was not so dark. I stamped the flowers over the color and then popped the sparkly Berry Burst flowers over the stamped flowers, using Mini Stampin Dimensionals. 
Here’s a close-up of the sparkly paper-pieced flowers. I added some pearl accents to dress them up a bit more, along with a little Silver Baker’s Twine bow. The little doily on the left of the main image has a cool “pearlized” effect and I just added a tiny peek of it for an accent.
Finally, here is a quick shot of the inside of the card. Just a little piece of DSP and one of the coordinating stamps. I stamped in Tranquil Tide ink, then colored the flowers in with a Berry Burst Stampin’ Write Marker. Of course, they weren’t complete without some Wink of Stella glitter. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Please leave a comment to say hello. I’ve listed all of the items used to create my card below. As a reminder, the Love What You Do stamp set, Share What You Love DSP, Share What You Love Artisan Pearls and Pearlized Doilies will NOT be available until the exclusive bundles are released on May 1st.

Also, be sure to stop by The Paper Players to join their sketch challenge this week! :)

Have a HAPPY day!
