I want to quickly explain the different options, and then I have a few cards to share using the Just Getting Started Bundle. I'll be sharing samples using products from the other bundles throughout the month.
There are four options for pre-ordering this month. The first is called the "Just Getting Started" Bundle. It includes the following items:
Note that the Very Vanilla Note Cards & Envelopes are a free item in this bundle. While you will be able to purchase these items separately starting in June, you will not receive the free gift.
The next option is called the "A Little More, Please" Bundle. It includes these items:
Note that in this bundle, the Very Vanilla Medium Envelopes and the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit are free.
The third option with these products, called the "Gotta Have it All" Bundle, adds on the Share What You Love Specialty Paper, which includes 24 sheets of designer paper, and it has a pearlized finish on one side. This bundle also adds the Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Here is everything that is included:
You'll notice that the free items are the same as the "A Little More, Please" Bundle, with the addition of the Statement of My Heart stamp set. This stamp set is exclusive to this preorder and will not be offered in the upcoming catalog. It's a great reason to choose this bundle!
The final option is the 2018-2020 In Color Collection of ink pads. That's right, you can order our five brand new in colors now! Buying the five ink pads in a bundle saves you 10%. This bundle is the only one out of the four that will be available in the new catalog, but it's fun to get your hands on some of the new colors early!
Please note that if you order the In Color bundle along with one of the others, you will end up with two Grapefruit Grove ink pads. Also note that if you purchase the "Gotta Have it All" Bundle with the In Color bundle, you will have a large enough order to earn hostess rewards. Yay! If you are shopping and spending less than $150, please use this month's host code, RAHUEJ3J.
I hope you'll enjoy using some of these new products as much as I have already. Demonstrators were able to preorder these products during April, so it's been fun to try them out! I have a few cards to share with you today, and I used only the products from the "Just Getting Started" Bundle.
For the first one, I stamped off the Grapefruit Grove ink for the background of the flowers. "Stamping off" means inking up your stamp, stamping on a piece of scrap paper, and then stamping a second time on your project without re-inking. It gives you a lighter shade of the color.
For the second card, I used the same stamping off technique for the watercolor background stamp, and for some of the flowers on the envelope flap. I did add a few Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of the greeting piece, but the rest of the products you'll find in your bundle.
Love these new products so much that you want more? You can include these bundles in your starter kit, and then you'll be able to participate in the demonstrator preorder from the new Annual Catalog, which begins tomorrow! This preorder usually includes a selection of products from the new catalog, and I'm betting all the rest of our brand new colors! Plus, you'll get to purchase at a discount! Woohoo!
