Clearly Besotted January Teasers Day 1

Hello lovely Clearly Besotted fans and blog friends! Hope you had a lovely Christmas and are enjoying the space between Christmas and New Year where no one seems to know what day of the week it is and you yo-yo between eating leftovers, working and trying to enjoy the gifts you’ve received!

Today starts the monthly countdown for the Clearly Besotted release, and January’s set of stamps and dies are wonderful! I’ve chosen to use the ‘apples-pears’ set. I’ve gone with both!

First of all, stamp and white heat embossing onto a light moss green cardstock. Stamp in a random pattern, turning the stamps so it doesn’t look too uniform.

Next, using a craft knife, trim out the inside spaces of the apples and pears and also the larger portions of the branches.

Now you want to mount it on some vellum or matt DuraLar. Using some Prismacolor pencils, I added some details along the edges of leaf and fruit images.

Next add in some white gel pen detailing- using random dots. Then simply stamp and white heat emboss the sentiment onto grey cardstock and add to the card. I mounted it first onto white cardstock using foam pads and then onto the same colour cardstock I’d used for the sentiment.

I really love the different styles you can create using this set. It’s also perfect for the colourists amongst you!

Please pop over to the Clearly Besotted blog to see what Jenny and Stephanie have imagined up for you and then onto ..

    OMG ! These are fabulous, I can’t believe you cut these with a knife they are so crisp, I honestly thought they were die cut. Fantastic opening view of a set.
