Teaser Time

Hi! Thanks for coming back to join me for another day of projects introducing you to the latest Clearly Besotted October Release. Full release will be shown on the 5th October and the sets are available to buy from 10pm BST that day.

Today, I’m showing you a little more Christmas stuff (c’mon, it’s October now, no groaning please!)

The Christmas Poinsettia has some bold images that are perfectly suited to colouring and outline stamping. Here, I wanted to create something that could be removed and used as a hanging decoration.

When I stamped and added white embossing powder, I found that the alcohol markers actually colour the white a player shade of whatever colour you’re using. This gave an unexpected effect, but one I really like.

These aren’t the main images- just some of the extras, but it said ‘Christmas jumper’ to me. Ok- the jumper outline isn’t a stamp, I’ve just sketched that freehand. I wanted a simple imperfect line (ha! That’s my line and I’m sticking to it!).

It makes for a different sort of Christmas card, and one suited for the men for sure.

Onto the final one today (sorry, if you’re bored already!) using a set called ‘Merry Kissmas’

This one comes with a matching die that’s very handy if you don’t like fussy cutting. As you might know, I find it soothing (haha!) so I simply stamped it once, added details and a feint light blue line to give dimension and then added the fussy cut image over the top.

It’s not a massive image, but I’ve made it the main thing by decreasing the size of the card blank. That’s an easy trick for your vertically challenged stamps at home!

Congratulations to have made it all the way to the bottom. I’m sure you’ll agree that the Clearly Besotted team of Stephanie and Jenny have done such a great job. Pop over to the blog to see what all the girls have created!

One more day to wait… and they’re available!

See you tomorrow with my final set of projects!

    That sound you hear is applause. Each time you post a card, or any paper project, I get a little giddy. These 3 are an excellent example…just the little details and design elements you choose, always seem a bit surprising and perfect. What I’m saying, badly, is that the cards, and all your cards, are FREAKING FABULOUS.
