Clearly Besotted December Teasers Day 1!

Well hellooo! So glad to be back. I’m afraid my blog has been a little neglected, so it’s great posting some projects to whet your appetite for this month’s Clearly Besotted release!

Today I’ve used a really unique set called ‘Love Story’. It doesn’t have to be about love though- there’s plenty of little chipmunk (I think it’s a chipmunk…edited…it could also be a skunk. Lisa reckons it’s a skunk and I think she’s right!!) images to use for other occasions.

I wanted to create a kinetic card that could show my little friend Chip sliding through the scenery. It’s a super easy mechanism- just stamp and cut out the middle window sections of the film strip image. Next stamp, colour and cut your little guy ( or gal) and attach to a piece of acetate.

Next… DON’T do this…

As I was placing the ink pad back onto the desk, I dropped it back onto the card. Ughhh. I did remedy it with a small strip of the same cardstock and it doesn’t look out of place, so I got away with it!

You can see on the next picture, that I added foam pads along the reverse of the frame and slotted my chipmunk in before I stuck it onto the card. I added a piece of cardstock to act as the pulley and it was done!

The sentiments are really brilliant this month. Kinda nice-snarky. I loved the ‘Love Story Sentiments’ Set; wait until you read some of them. They’re bound to bring a smile!

Speaking of the sentiment, my youngest wasn’t impressed with it. He read the card whilst it was on my desk and told me he thought it was a bit cheeky to send to someone. I told him I’d have to be very careful who I sent it to, and thankfully have someone in mind that won’t be offended!!

 This card was a lot of fun to make ( minus the ink dropping incident) and I’ll be back tomorrow with a super cute card.

Obviously the next best thing to do, before tomorrow comes, is pop over to the Clearly Besotted blog then over to see Michelle & Lisa!!

See you soon,

Keren x

    Absolutely adorable and a fab idea to have Chip moving through the scenes. So cute and great cover up with the card too. Ink pads rarely fall so they don’t mark the card! Xx

    Aww this is fab! I absolutely love the sentiment. Definitely would know people I could send it to. Would make them laugh. I felt your pain on the ink pad drop….
