My Inky Friends: Suite Designs Blog Hop: Share What You Love

Welcome to the Suite Designs Blog Hop! Each of the My Inky Friends Design team has chosen one suite from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog to showcase. At each stop, you'll see some amazing stamped images, papers, and accessories. Be sure to have a wish list handy!

A hop is a big loop of linked blog posts. You may have been hopping from Tanya's Tranquil Treasures projects, or you can start here and then hop to the next blog, which is Yapha's use of the Animal Expeditions Suite. Very cute critters!

This stop is all about the Share What You Love Suite. I've had my main project in mind for a while and am glad to finally be able to create it and share it. Thus, Sharing What I Love.

I wanted to decorate this painter's tray with the Share What You Love Suite so I could hang it up in my new stamp room. These flowers, the rich colors, especially the Rich Razzleberry are my kind of flowers. 

Here are close ups of each panel. 

For this panel, I used Stampin' Blends to color images stamped in Stazon. Since this was watercolor paper, the color are rich and saturated. I added a lot of Artisan pearls for accents as well as a small piece of Rich Razzleberry Velvet Ribbon. The silver rose element is from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit. The white, laser cut panel is from the Delightfully Detailed Designer Series Paper, which isn't officially a part of this suite, but I love how well it coordinates. 

For this panel, I used the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit's small label and a stamp from the Love What You Do Stamp Set. The flowers are fussy cut from the Delightfully Detailed Designer Series Paper. and embellished. 

This panel was started when I was playing around with no line watercoloring. I added the Stazon Black outline after I had colored with Rich Razzleberry, which created the off set look just like the paper. I added some thread from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit and some Rich Razzleberry Velvet Ribbon. 

I used a frame from the Delightfully Detailed Designer Series Paper over the Share What You love Designer Series Paper. I fussy cut some flowers and added some Artisan Pearls. This would make a fabulous card front. 

For this panel, I used the Make a Difference Stamp Set to stamp Lily's Ink Pad. I tried with my Stamparatus first, but found that me just stamping each letter with a clear block was better for me. The flowers are from the same stamp set and I never noticed them before! I think they are perfect for this larger label from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit. I used the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies to place halves above and below my tag. I added some fussy cut Delightfully Detailed flowers. 

For this last panel, I stamped Stampin' Up!'s Statement of the Heart, which is the credo which all Demonstrators live by in our work. I used a Mint Macaron Blend to shade the cursive words and a Rich Razzleberry one to color the heart. I used some layering for the Share What You Love Designer Series Paper. I made a fussy bow. The flowers were created the same as the other ones, but this time I washed the background. 

Well, what do you think? I hope you can see the possibilities withe Share What You Love Suite!
