Clearly Besotted Release Day

Well you’ve all been so patient waiting for this release! I’ve not managed to make cards with all the sets, but if you check out the Clearly Besotted blog and see Mona & Francine on Instagram, you’ll see some wonderful cards with the August release too. I’m hoping to get a chance to create with some of the August release, so keep your eye out for some extra Clearly Besotted posts.

The lure of gelato was too great. I had to make another card with the Ice Ice Plushies. Again, I’ve added a little melty part (see how they’re all stood in the melted strawberry and coconut icecream) as it needed to go with the sentiment. As a public service announcement in the strawberry and coconut vein- steer clear of the Starbucks new refreshing drink in that flavour. It’s not worth the money. I digress 😉

I love the no-line colouring technique, and whilst it’s not completely no line, it does give a softer look, which seems appropriate for soft-scoop!

These three bonded over frozen desserts, and meet up each week to try the latest flavours. The unicorn is regretting her choice of beetroot, peach and pistachio but it sure looks pretty. I partially die-cut a circle to create a cut out semicircle which looks more impactful in real life.

Kimono chose strawberry, bubblegum and Nutella. She likes to save her icecream but has waited too long and the strawberry is everywhere. Teddy is a little annoyed that he has sticky paws, but is consoling himself that his ice lolly is so tasty and refreshing. I added the little waffle and sprinkles details and then afterwards realised that the sprinkles are actually images in the set! Duh!

Well that’s all I have for this month; I didn’t cover all the sets, but if you have a look on the Clearly Besotted Blog, you’ll see all the sets plus on Facebook on their page you can enter to win the whole release.

There’s still Michelle to visit it today, so do go and say Hi. Do also go to see Alberto @loshakeratoalberto and Mona on Instagram and Francine Vuilleme  so there are lots of lovely blogs and Instagram to see today too.

As usual, the release goes live at 8pm GMT (BST). All sets are available tonight on the Clearly Besotted store and also from Simon Says Stamp , Art CreatiuCloud 9 Crafts and Card Nouveau too.

Thanks for being with me this month, and for all your lovely comments- they really do make my day!

    Oh this so cute, Keren! I love the semi circle aperture and your colouring on the critters is fantastic! Love the ice cream flavours you chose, maybe not beetroot but you never know, it could grow on me! xx

    These really are super cute – also I’ve noted your public service announcement and will avoid S’bucks coconut and strawberry! I’m so hot though. My ice lolly really did melt the other day! xx

      Oh I’m nearly ready to drink anything – except for the lemon and lime Starbucks drink too. Eughhh.

    Great minds, Keren. Ice Cream seems to be the order of the day. Although, mine isn’t as adorable and perfectly colored as yours. So much fun.

      Thankyou! Mine neither. Mine melted very very quickly and wasn’t as grand!
