Clearly Besotted October Release Day

Well it’s finally here! Release Day!

I was going to post another project that I’d prepared but I couldn’t resist creating a project using this fabulous mini set- ‘Merry Mouse’. The little characters are completely captivating. When I saw the stocking it reminded me of a boot. I imagined a table with the mouse offloading the cookies left for Santa. I was delighted that the mouse was facing exactly the right way to dangle a string tied with cookies to the waiting collector!

The biscuit on the plate is easy to trim off, so that meant I could add them to dangle down the embroidery thread.  I only bothered tying one on, hoping that your brain would replicate it subconsciously!!

The table couldn’t have been simpler- just two pieces of brown cardstock rounded slightly at the edges. I didn’t add detail as I wanted the focus to be on the mice rather than other elements. I then coloured in the elements with Nuvo Alcohol pens.

Sometimes simple ideas turn out just right! I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing a selection of this bumper release and would love to know which sets are your favourites!

Tonight (at 8pm GMT) all the new products become available in our store and at Simon Says Stamp.

There are still some inspiring projects from Michelle & Lisa. I think Michelle also has a video posting later today, so do check out her blog later. Of course Stephanie and Jenny have some amazing inspiration on the Clearly Besotted blog too!

Do have a lovely day, and hope to see you tomorrow with an extra Clearly Besotted project involving a precariously balanced unicorn!

    Keren you are so creative, the way you take a stamp set and do something completely different with it astounds me. Every time! I adore this fabulous card and those naughty little mice stealing the cookies. You are a genius! ❤️

    Oh dear heaven, this makes me smile so wide I’m in danger of splitting a lip. What an adorable card and, once again, you’re the genius that pulled off this little miracle.
