Simon Says STAMPtember with Clearly Besotted!

September 21, 2019 at 5:00 am 8 comments

Hello everyone!

I was really thrilled to get the special STAMPtember Clearly Besotted set from Simon Says Stamp. It’s called ‘Celebrate The Season’ (SSS102057) and is perfect for Christmas papercrafting. For some reason I decided to do a No-line Alcohol marker colouring technique. Not sure why, as my last attempt was only passable, but these beautiful images seemed to warrant this treatment.

Isn’t it a completely stunning set!! There is a matching die set which, (although I do love fussy cutting), makes it so much quicker and actually cuts pretty close which I really like.

To colour in, I used Nuvo Alcohol markers and the cardstock was completely awesome but it was a random sheet given to me by a friend so I can’t tell even you what it was 😂!

Once I’d finished shading with the alcohol colours, I used my Prismacolors on top for a greater depth of colour. I have to say I found it really absorbing and whiled away an hour or two! The patterned paper on the base card is from Reverse Confetti ‘Pattern Play‘ and the woodgrain paper is some I had in my stash -but it’s pretty easy to get hold of!

I added a few dots of white gel pen and then a little sparkle from Nuvo Drops White Blizzard. It came together pretty quickly and I love the combo of flowers and foliage. I added some Dandelion Yellow Nuvo Drops to the centre of the poinsettia flowers for some dimension.

Do check out the set as there are extra flowers, a bow and some chunkier sentiments in a gorgeous scripty font.

I’d love to know what STAMPtember sets you’ve been eyeing up and I might go and peek too. You’ll be able to see some amazing inspiration on the Simon Says Stamp blog, which I’ll be heading over for a nosey too!

Thanks for joining me today!

I’ll see you soon

    Keren your colouring is fabulous – you do no line colouring so well. The design is beautiful with the overhang at the top, I love the double banner and the patterned paper is the perfect backdrop. Stunning card xx

    Keren, I’m so happy you gave no-line coloring another try – it’s amazing!! Am I picking up a bit of Kathy Racoosin influence? A really gorgeous collaboration set! xx

    Gorgeously colored swag…this is anything but passable. It’s glorious. The fact that you even attempted no-line coloring makes me admire you more. And the detail you’ve added with your pencils is fabulous. Wish I could make me windows and doors look like this for Christmas.
