Hello Everyone ~ my Love What You Do Idea is perfect for any occasion.
I think something is wrong with my rechargeable vacuum. I did not get the floors finished last night so I let it charge all night and this morning after my appointment I started on them to finish up. I managed to use it about 15 minutes and died. I plugged it back in and let it charge all day. I checked on it several times to see if it was still charging. I am hoping that I just did not plug it in correctly and that it was not fully charged again. I will not be happy if there is problem with it and I have to replace the battery. Time will tell.
One of the stamp sets I had tried to use for the One Sheet Wonder with a twist idea was the Love What You Do. That one did not work out like I had hoped it would. I decided to cut the sheet into 4 panels and do each panel separately. Today’s card was one of those panels. I used 2 of the sprigs from the stamp set to create a border in the middle of the panel. The one sprig was stamped using Shaded Spruce and I also did some second generation stamping with it. I figured out the approximate middle of the panel and stamped the sprig across the middle of the panel then rotated the card stock 180 degrees and stamped the same sprig across the middle again. Using the second sprig from the set I stamped it across the middle using Pacific Point. The panel was rotated 180 degrees and the sprig was stamped again. The cluster of little flowers were stamped using Merry Merlot above the row of sprigs using first, second, and third generation stamping. Panel was rotated and the same technique for stamping the cluster of flowers were used again. This panel was then mounted onto a Shaded Spruce card base. My sentiment was stamped using Shaded Spruce and mounted onto a piece of Shaded Spruce card stock. Strips of Stampin’ Dimensionals were added to the back. Using Linen thread loops were created and added to the back of the sentiment layer. One set of loops were added on the left hand side of the layer and another set was added on the right hand side of the layer. The layer was then added across the center of the card front. To finish off the card some rhinestones were added to the sentiment panel. Here is the completed Love What You Do Idea creation.

The Love What You Do stamp set has some great images. One of the images is a “blob” shape. I sometimes struggle with using these shapes. I used the shape for some water and the fish from Jar Of Love. This idea uses some washi tape with the flower image for a quick card. This set can even be used for a masculine card.
