Clearly Besotted January Teasers Day 4

We’re nearly there. Have you loved the new sets?

I haven’t managed to ink up all of mine, but I did want to use the ‘Heart & Home’ set as it’s perfect for my Mum and Dad, who’ve just moved house! This first photo might seem a bit strange..

It was nearly impossible to make the front cover look good- but that’s what it is- a Duralar Matt sheet heat embossed with white so you can see a glimpse at what’s underneath. I did have ‘dolls house’ in my head which is where the house shape plus the dividing lines came from.

I quite enjoyed choosing where the rooms would go and which colours to pick for each house. My Mum and Dad have just done exactly that so this would be perfect for them!

It’s really simply done. Just two strips of thin cardstock, adhered over one another with a roof shape at the top. Trace over the shape with the Duralar matt (or vellum, but this stands up to heat embossing perfectly) and add an extra bit onto the left of the Duralar so you can secure it behind the card layer.

Wondering where to write? On the back. Why have a standard card, when you can create something unique! It’s time to head off ..nearly, but first a couple of notices!!

Please go to the Clearly Besotted blog, then onto Michelle and then Mona Toth ( @mona.toth on Instagram ) and Candice Fisher our guest designers for this month.

I’d normally be back with another project for Release Day but the busyness of the Christmas period caught up with me. I know Michelle has got her round up video for you tomorrow so do visit her YouTube channel to see all the new sets.

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

Thanks so much for visiting and encouraging me!

      Autocorrect changed the spelling of your name. Sorry, Keren.

        Aww thanks for changing it, but I’m so used to it!! Autocorrect always does that. I’m very chillled about it; if you have a more unusual name you need to be or you’d get frustrated all the time! Your name is beautiful, does it have any special meaning? x

    Oh I love this idea! Perfect for your mum and dad. I love that it does look like a dolls house and the Duralar at the front looks perfect! I keep meaning to get some myself! So cute with the different scenes for the rooms. Love it! xx

    Such a clever, shaped house warming card. Love all your coloring, but the star of the show is that Duralar door. Brilliant idea.

    Hola, Keren! I just saw your reply above. I’m a month late. I apologize! 💜 I totally understand about unusual names. Well, not unusual, but uncommon. With a name like Marisela, we’re in the same boat together. When I was a child, it was extremely uncommon, but now there are more. Thank you. I like my name. It’s original and how I see myself. My mother is from Mexico and my grandmother came when I was going to be born. She named me and said for that very reason she was naming me Marisela: it wasn’t common. As for a meaning, I have seen a couple of meanings, but I have my doubts. One said that my name means BOLD. I am bold, but I think it was fake. 😂😂😂 In Mexico, they don’t really name babies because of any meaning, but just that it sounds nice. haha haha I’m in Texas and there are millions of Mexican-Americans here and my name still gets slaughtered. 😂😂😂 It’s great to chat with you. Your cards are always so beautiful! Sending you warm hugs! 💜💜💜
