Love What You Do

Hello, Crafters.

Stampin' Up! have annoumnced a special promotion for the month of May. 
There is going to be a pre-release of the forthcoming Share What
 You Love Suite, which will be available in the new Annual Catalogue
 when it goes live on 1st. June 2018. I'm really pleased that 
SU have chosen this Suite for the pre-release because I know it's
 going to be an easy suite to work with. ☺
Today's card has been made with products that will be available 
during the pre-release! The colours I have used for the two 
inks are two of the new 2018 - 202 InColours: Lovely Lipstick 
(dark pink) and Call Me Clover (green). This is my spin
on a card Stampin' Up! have produced to go with the early release.
I stamped the sentiment using me Call Me Clover Ink and die 
cut it using the no. 3 Stitched Shape Framelits circle die. When 
I was happy this was the right size, I drew a pencil circle on the 
Whisper White Cardstock (CS) layer so I knew the 
positioning of the stamp/flowers.
I stamped five sets of flowers at different angles to achieve a 
bouquet-looking effect, and coloured the centres of the flowers 
with the two different sized infill stamps, stamping off once each time. 
Next I stamped some leafy fronds in Call Me Clover, again 
stamping off once so the colour wasn't too dark.
I fussy cut four flowers from a sheet I'd stamped but wasn't happy 
with - it happens! ☺ - and adhered one to the bottom of the sentiment. 
I added a small Basic Rhieston on the base of each flower to add a 
bit of sparkle to my card.
I added a layer of Lovely Lipstick CS and a layer of Whisper White 
CS inside the card. Finally, I decorated the bottom right-hand 
corner with the other three flowers I'd fussy cut. 04.01.18_TH_SHAREABLE_SHAREWHATYOULOVE_UK_SP

That's about it from me today. Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
