Clearly Besotted Release Day – Naughty or Mice !

October 1, 2020 at 8:00 am 7 comments

It’s Release Day! Yay!! Hasn’t it been an amazing release! So much fun and Christmassy goodness. Today is a bit of a fail. The idea had promise but never quite delivered. I do think it’s important to show the highs and lows- so maybe you can scrape an idea out of the germ of inspiration! The set is called Naughty or Mice. Originally I had visions of the mice bungee jumping off the top of the Christmas tree. It all went downhill from there 😉

You’ll forgive me for thinking that this card ended up looking like a 10 year old did it- although it took more time than any of the others did! I just cut out a Christmas tree shape and line with acetate. I coloured in a trunk and added it to the front with foam pads.

Don’t they look perfect all swinging from the tree…all except the snowman who can’t because he’s melting with all the central heating on at full blast! Is he a mouse or an interloper? Who knows until the snow melts!

Stuff a load of gold sequins to the back of the tree shape and add the foam pads. Seal with a piece of green cardstock and ta-daah, you have a card your kid would be proud of 😉

There’s still more to see over on the Clearly Besotted Blog and don’t forget about the Facebook giveaway where you could win the whole release! Michelle and Lisa have their release projects too.

We also have Keeway joining in again, so do visit her blog. Francine and Caly round off your daily dose of inspiration and hopefully give you a final clue about which sets to choose. Which have been your favourites so far?

The release goes live at 8pm GMT. All sets are available tonight on the Clearly Besotted store and also from Simon Says Stamp.

Thanks for all your lovely comments this release- it’s been a joy to share all my projects with you!

I’ll be with you again soon,

    You do yourself a disservice Ms Baker! This card is so much fun! Only you could come up with bungee jumping mice and I love that it turned into a shaker too. Highly impressive and even cutting of a tree shape. I would have gone with a triangle and even that would have gone pear shaped lol. xx

    This is absolutely not a fail! I love it! Such a great idea and those critters look like they are having a lot of fun bungee jumping from the tree! I bet that’s what all critters do when we have gone to bed! xx
