Clearly Besotted July Release Teasers Day 1

Hello lovelies,

How are you all? We’ve got a wonderful line up of Clearly Besotted new stamps this July release, and I’m beginning with my favourite set. It’s one of my favourites in a while. I just love the gorgeous artistry and the potential for creativity.

Once I saw them, and after it reminded me of Penfold from Dangermouse, I imagined them burrowing down into a field of flowers, as these guys live to mine florals!

There’s no story today (there’s a story behind that one!) so instead I’ll just talk through the card.

I started off by stamping, colouring and cutting the mole guys out. Using a piece of black cardstock, I sketched and cut a tunnel and mole hole out.


Mole holes are never wanted in perfectly manicured gardens, but for these cute guys, I’d make an exception. I love the way they love their flowers. They just collect them!

I added some blended Distress Ink into the space behind the tunnel and trimmed out a small area at the top of the card. I added one mole behind the space. Add a little strip of acetate behind them and add a butterfly on it.

I popped some extra flowers in the mole’s hands and placed one so it looked like it was falling down into the tunnel. The set is called ‘Mischievous Mole’. They certainly are, and they’ll be available from the 1st July.

As usual there’s the lovely line-up;

Until tomorrow,

    What an absolutely fabulous card – they too remind me of Penfold in Danger Mouse and I am sorely tempted by them!!!

    This card is the whole reason I bought the set last year. So absolutely adorable!
