Clearly Besotted Release! 

May 5, 2017 at 11:55 am 4 comments

They’re back! It’s been a wait- but hopefully after you’ve seen the release, you’ll see it’s been worth the wait!

All sets are available for purchase tonight about 6pm at the Clearly Besotted store plus Simon Says Stamp too.

Today I’m going to just show you one set. This set speaks to my music loving heart. I have had to play in similar situations to this guy, and he looks so at home with the concert performance- obviously a seasoned pro!

It originally didn’t have sequins.

I wasn’t originally eating cake.

You can guess why it ended up needing sequins then 😂

The set has lots of orchestral performers with some great sentiments too. This next card is an inside out one really. Truth be told, I’ve not even designed the front- but when I do, it’ll have a belly band around it, to keep the little performers from popping up too early!


I’ve attached them to the base with acetate hinges. I’ve adhered the hinges to the reverse of the music.

Creating the centre was easy. Firstly I folded a piece of card, drew a curve mimicking an open book on one side and then cut the folded piece so it was cut both sides at once.
Then use this cut off piece as the template for the bottom edge. Trace the template onto the middle to make perfectly curved music paper and trace over with black pen when it’s all done. Stamp out the music so it looks a proper piece and then finish adding the characters and a sentiment.

Do visit the Clearly Besotted blog plus check out the other DT’s projects- they’ll have posts at some point today. Michelle has done a release video which is live now.

    My chin is very damp from my mouth hanging open and the subsequent drooling. You, my girl, have totally outdone yourself. The stamps are adorable but you have made them soar to an entirely different level. I am humbled by your extraordinary talent.

    Well, you made me get them of course. How could I not having seen your amazing design this morning and then watching Michelle’s video just sealed the deal. Love that they are now quarterly. Means I can get time to use them before the next one! Xx
