Today’s The Day- Clearly Besotted Stamps Feb Release
Hi! Day 4-it’s release day already!
Welcome again (visitor or regular)- I’ve really enjoyed showing you the new Clearly Besotted stamp releases. They’re available tonight at 10pm -so set your alarms!
Today I have really surpassed myself in silliness.
This is how it sometimes goes.
I’m a little messy (ok, rather somewhat) and I often have little bits and pieces and die-cut parts lying on my desk. After I’d die cut some of the Round Roses and stamped them, I looked at one that was actually upside down.
It appeared to have hair. I thought immediately of the Cool Chick set- (the teeny chicks with the interchangeable faces!). I happened to stamp out another in green… and ta-daaah. The Brussel Sprout monster was born.
Now granted, there are possibly not 100’s of people you could send this to. I appreciate this a some-what niche market…
But..I’m guessing you could combine with other sets to make really fun cards. I wanted a good contrast which is why I added the sublime tulips in the ‘You Are Wonderful’ set I showed yesterday.
My last card is simple and gentle and using a set I’ve not shown yet; ‘Nesting’
You don’t need to mess about much with this mini set- just a little ink and a good chunk of white space! It’s a great all round set for congratulating new parents or birth announcements.
I stamped it twice in 2 colours, offsetting the second colour slightly. I wanted it to have a few eggs in (I’ve a fair few kids!!) and when it looked too plain, I added the twine to make it look like it were a basket that the stork might carry 😉
It’s easy to curve these stamps, so I made the sentiment match the curve of the nest. Add a little watercolour, a little patterned paper, and you’re done.
I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing all the new sets over the past couple of days and that your bank balance can cope!!
Do go and visit the Clearly Besotted blog for the full reveal and to see what the other designers have whipped up for your delectation..
