STAMPtember Clearly Besotted!

Hi there! I’m delighted to be showcasing a new stamp set…all especially designed forexclusive_clearly-besotted-01

I can’t imagine many of you haven’t heard about #Stamptember, but it’s the monthly long celebration from Simon Says Stamp where lots of your favourite stamping companies release new sets especially for the event.

Clearly Besotted are no different, and they’ve designed a wonderful new set called Layered Chrysanthemumssss101661

What a beautiful set! I decided to go with a pink colour way but instead of keeping it as a 2d image, I snipped into some of the petals and glued the overlap so it ended up like this!

I loved creating this acetate based card. This next photo will give you a better idea of how I snipped into the card to create the effect. Aren’t the blooms just gorgeous!img_7572

To stamp them, it’s  a 3 step system. If you call the largest solid flower stamp No.1 and then the next biggest No.2 and the smallest No.3, I found it was easy to stamp if you stamped No.1, then No.3 and lining up No.2 stamp was pretty easy. Start with the solid stamp in the lighter colour and the smallest in the darkest shade.

I actually only stamped two of the leaf stamps rather than the three so it kept the leaves looking lighter.


The sentiment is heat embossed into Dura Lar matt and then attached to the stripes and adding a few sequins to finish.

I hope you love this set as much as I do.

Check out all the releases so far this month for the Stamptember celebration here.

    WOW! This is stunning, Keren. I love the 3d flowers and the card base is just as stunning too. I love what you have done with the acetate xx

    Absolutely gorgeous – and I love the extra dimension you get from snipping the petals. I love the acetate card – how well does it stand up? It looks amazing! xx

    Look at you announcing the release of this lovely set. Snipping into these pretty flowers to make them mor dimensional is just part of your genius. As is the background for them. Graphic looking with the accent of soft, femininity. Another Baker Beauty.
