Clearly Besotted September Teasers Day 3

It’s been great to hear that you’re loving the sets. They are fun and quirky as you’d expect from Clearly Besotted but they also do wonderfully cute as you well know.

I’ve combined two sets; ‘Mythical Monsters’ and ‘Sweet Dreamzzz’. The Sweet Dreamzzz set is full of clouds, rainbows, stars and unicorns

He’s just adorable and just dragon’y colours. I imagined the stars like falling stars which is why I’ve added all the gel pen to add movement to the design too.

Choosing the rainbow colours was fun too. So many choices. The teal background was a great contrast to the pastel colours of the dragon.

It’s time to visit the other team to get some more inspiration. First up is the Clearly Besotted Blog. Then onto Lisa, Michelle and our lovely guests Adelle, Francine, Keeway and Alberto (on Instagram).

Please drop by again tomorrow for a look at another new set,

‘Special Delivery’ From Spellbinders

Hello ! Hope you’re having an amazing day.

Spellbinders kindly sent me some gorgeous stamp and matching die sets. One of these is called ‘New Arrival’ (SDS-122), and is perfect for all baby congratulations cards and handmade gifts.

This set is available from Simon Says Stamp. The set is designed by Debi Adams and every time I use red rubber sets (these are red rubber cling stamps) I remember just how good and crisp the images are and how much I should use them more!

I’ve made a very simple shaker card and added some confetti bits from Nuvo Confetti and glitter collection. I’ve coloured the images using alcohol markers plus a blender pen. Adding a little watercolour using Nuvo AquaFlow pens adds some detailing around the clouds and stops it looking too stark. After all, babies are sweet and cuddly so cards should exude warmth!

Do look out for more Spellbinders products, I am really loving using them!

See you soon with another blog post using another Spellbinders set

Baby Card & Busy Days!

20121019-085334.jpg
It’s a day off! So glad for no morning rush. The kids have a inset day ahead of their half term.
Here’s a baby card I made a while back and despite looking ridiculously simple- it took a long time to make. I had to use a stamping aid to line up every single duck.
Lining your ducks up in a row is one of those funny phrases although is really indicative of the process. Not sure if anyone has ever tried to physically line little ducks up- but I reckon I go with the theory about the mummy duck who often does get her babies in a line before travelling over water or ground. I’ve been doing a lot of that this week. So much prep to deliver what seems quick or simple.
This week I’ve been doing mag work and video prep for the Paper Crafters Library. Doing videoing with really harsh sunlight has been so challenging- can’t change the weather huh?!

Haven’t any time for a funny story-
Too busy scraping cornflour off the floor after a ‘science experiment’ , negotiating between who was stealing money from the bank during kid monopoly, managing to retrieve my phone from a ‘Moshi monster’ video creation, sorting a territory dispute in a landowners game ( ‘get off my land’ being shouted ad nauseum’) and wrestling with over done hot cross buns that are determined to stay in the toaster. Add into this a slow computer and you have the recipe for a stress free day (!). Not.

See you when I’ve come out of hiding!! xx
