Clearly Besotted August Teasers Day 4

July 31, 2019 at 8:00 am 6 comments

Hey! Welcome to Day 4 for one more teaser before Release Day tomorrow!

I have loved the fullness of stamps; just one inking and you have a complete image for a card. No worrying whether you’ll mess up the second and third image and no ‘hiding’ the mistakes!!

This card is sorta odd. Don’t ask me why I wanted to frame the image. I think I was going for a picture on a wall vibe, hence the frame!

I have added one of the most beautiful stencils; Triangle Fade and just used some Distress Inks. It’s really impactful isn’t it. The stamp set I’ve used is called Shelve It and the sentiment is from the very funny ‘Laugh Out Loud Belated’ set. The arrangement of craft stuff looks like my Raskog Ikea cart (on that very rare day when it’s actually tidy!).

I could send this card over and over to a few friends who I’ve been late sending things to. Ironically it tends to be those that live locally and we’ve not seen each other for a while! You can see my slightly dodgy mitred corners; they definitely need some work!

I just thought I’d keep it real.. you can tell I didn’t add an anti-static powder so there are flecks of embossing powder. Truthfully this card is a hot mess, but hey, I’m far from perfect!

Do pop over to the Clearly Besotted blog to see some amazing projects. Don’t forget my lovely teamies Lisa & Michelle

I haven’t got a release post tomorrow, but I’ll be reminding you all via social media that the release is from 8pm GMT and available in the Clearly Besotted store or Simon Says Stamp

See you soon,

Keren xx

    I love it, Keren! Not a mess at all! I love that the image is in a frame, as you say, it looks like a picture on a wall and the stencilling is the wallpaper! Fabulous! xx

    This card is not a hot mess Keren! I immediately saw it was a picture on a wall and what better way to decorate our craft rooms. Love the triangle fade stencil too, it’s a wonderful backdrop.

    No way is this a hot mess, if you want to see a hot mess let me send you some of mine & they’ll be the better ones. Love the fade out as wallpaper & the hung picture x

    I love that frame around your little scene which, by the way, does remind me of an IKEA display. The gradient stencilling makes it perfect.
