Love What You Do

Hello, Crafters.

Will I ever get bored with this Suite? I decided to make two cards 
yesterday that featured Designer Series Paper (DSP). For this
first card I used the Love What You Do Stamp Set, and
 the Share What You Love DSP. 

My colour combo is Crumb Cake and Rich Razzleberry, with a hint 
of Old  Olive! I started my card by stamping the flower stem
 twice on the left-hand side of my Whisper White Cardstock (CS) layer.

Next I used the Post It Note masks I found in the stamp set box,
 to mask the first three flowers. Then I was able to use the 
small branch of leaves stamp, which is from the Love What 
You Do Stamp Set, to stamp two branches on
 the first group of three flowers. 

Next I moved the masks to the lower two and a bit flowers, 
and stamped  two more branches. Adding the green
 branches made a   transformation to image. branches! I 
was really pleased with the effect! 

The fussy-cut flowers I used to decorate the inside of my card
 were from my first image that I'd managed to smudge. 
Fortunately by fussy-cutting the flowers, the smudge was cut away!
The silver pearls are from the pack of Metallic Pearls which
 includes 121 silver-coloured pearls and 121 gold-coloured pearls. 
These can be found on page 197 of the Annual Catalogue.

 These pearls, together with the Share What You Love Artisan
 Pearls, are two of my new favourites in basic gems! I'm 
pleased to be able to report I'm making good progress with
 the tasks I have on my to-do list before go to Alaska 
next Thursday - eek, it's so close!
 I've finished my 3D swaps forAlaska, as well as the accompanying
 video, and I have just three videos left to make! I had my hair 
done yesterday and today I having my nails and toes done! 
Over the weekend, I plan to work on my card swaps which we
 are requested to make complete cards. I have my card
 planned, so  I just need to knuckle down and get on with them. 
The card will also be video as well. So it's all coming together
 beautifully for me now! 

I hope you have a lovely weekend, and until, tomorrow, and happy crafting.



  1. You do make some beautiful projects with this suite Jan, so I am not surprised you like it so much. I think we do go for a particular favourite and create well with this. But as for us crafters we love it because we get to see plenty of variety from one stamp set so thank you for your creativity Jan. :O)

    1. Many thanks, Lorraine. I find this suite so easy to work with, and I'm very happy that you find my projects inspiring. Happy crafting, JanB.
