Well, hello peaches! Welcome to the Stampin' Up! Love What You Do Suite Early Release Hop Part 2, held, once again, by our very talented and creative team of Artisan designers. As mentioned in the first hop, this suite was designed to cater to and celebrate each and every crafter. There is something for everyone in this amazing suite.

Now let's check out some projects made with the "Gotta Have It All Bundle (149526)". This bundle is packed full of gorgeous coordinating products. You can see from my samples below, that there are endless possibilities for mixing and matching them. These samples are designed with the "avid crafter" in mind. They have all been created using only products included in the "Gotta Have It All Bundle" (along with a few other ink colors), so you will be able to recreate these projects on your own or with friends and you'll have lots of ideas to work with when you order your own. For all of my cards today I'm using the Love What You Do Stamp Set (148042) and the Make A Difference Stamp Set (146676) from the "Gotta Have It All Bundle".     


For my first sample, I started with a Very Vanilla Cardstock card base and then embossed my first Very Vanilla panel with the Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (148048). I love the subtle texture it adds to my background. Next I took the largest textured stamp from the Love What You Do Stamp Set and inked it up in Tranquil Tide Ink. I stamped off once and then onto some Very Vanilla Cardstock for a softer tone. I cut this image in a rectangle shape and planned to matte it onto a piece of patterned paper from the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) (146926). However, first I wanted to add a cluster of floral images in between these two layers. To achieve this look, I took one of the floral sheets from the DSP and fussy cut out a few of the floral images. Now you may think this is a lot of fussy cutting and work, but I usually just do it while watching a movie/show or waiting for my daughter during her dance class. I truly enjoy it and it offers me so many more options and ways to use my DSP. You'll notice the baker's twine also ties around my panel. That beautiful twine comes from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit (146928) which is FREE when you buy this bundle! I stamped and cut out the main floral image from the set and stamped my sentiment as well. To finish it off, I added a few of the STUNNING Share What You Love Artisan Pearls (146927). Oh my goodness, you guys, these little pearls are to die for!  



For my next card I did a lot of layering of that gorgeous DSP. I looks so good together, that I just could't resist. This time I added one of the beautiful Pearlized Doilies (146936) behind my layers. If you're wondering how I created the bottom banner layer, I just simply took a piece of Very Vanila Cardstock and stamped one of the sentiments from the set repeatedly in Rich Razzleberry Ink. I just love the artistic font of that stamp set. It's so great to see the perfect beautiful mix of floral with artistic stamps. That just makes this set so versatile! You just can't go wrong with this set!


 For the third card I started with Grapefruit Grove Cardstock for my base. I used one of the floral image stamps from the set to stamp along the left side of my panel in Grapefruit Grove Ink (147142). Then, before adhering it down to my panel, I took some of the lovely white thread from the embellishment kit and wrapped it in a zigzag pattern. I embossed a piece of Mint Macaron with the floral embossing folder and cut the embossed image out. I also fussy a few more floral images out to add around my sentiment. Funnily enough, I hadn't planned the wreath formation and didn't even see it until my friend Susan Wong pointed it out, haha.

As you can see these bundles have so much to offer! Whether you are just beginning your crafting journey with limited supplies or you are an avid crafter who loves a challenge, there's something for everyone!
