Clearly Besotted October Teasers Day 3

Hi everyone! We’re half way there! Today I’m showing one of the 3 special mix’n’match sets; Merry Mix & Match Meow! They’re a way of creating a larger Christmas tree image and it’s been so cleverly designed. Here’s the front of the card.

It’s a very minimal card- I first set out by stamping and colouring then fussy cutting the window then Stamping the same window image onto some acetate with Stazon. Then I stamped the window onto the front of the white card blank and trimmed around the outer line of the window.

Then just line the window up with the acetate and glue together. Glue the window onto the reverse of the front and add some lovely glitter. Also add a bauble so it shows through the window.

The inside (that you can see peeking through the window) looks like this..

..an utterly pawfect scene. The stamped image is split into 3 stamps- but the clever thing about it is that the other two sets – the Merry Mix & Match Squeak (mice) and Merry Mix & Match Woof (dogs) can be used in any of the three positions- so you could have a tree of 3 sets of animals or just one type like in the card above.

So many possibilities- don’t you just love it!

If you want a smaller tree- you can actually just stamp the two top images, add a rectangle of brown for the tree and you’ve got a smaller scale.

There’s still lots more inspiration. Pop over to the Clearly Besotted blog then onto Lisa, Michelle and lovely Francine and Alberto (@loshakeratoalberto on Instagram).

We’re over half way through the teasers- that release day is getting ever closer!

Clearly Besotted October Teasers – Eat, Snooze & Be Merry

Hi! I’m so glad that you’re loving the teasers; the sets really are lots of fun. Today’s set is no exception and right now, I could do with a long snooze! I have a slow party. Or what is properly described as a sloth party. Nothing much happens here fast. They just hang around slow dancing 🙄😂.

I used one of the circles and made it into lots of hanging baubles by drawing a bauble ‘top’ and then a straight line to connect it to the other lights. The party sadly was too exciting for one little sloth. He’s taken refuge on top of the Christmas tree, worn out by all the merriment.

I’m not sure Christmas trees are really comfortable places to snooze, but he’s managing it fine! I simply stamped the sloth multiple times, not even having to mask it. Pretty simple really. The set is called Eat, Snooze and Be Merry, which often describes a Christmas Day, minus the snooze and the merry for many of us. Maybe it should be retitled, Cook, Tidy, Eat and Cook some more!

You can see the little baubles. Aren’t they fabulous. This set will being a smile to any card it’s featured on. We’ll leave this raucous gathering as they play a very long version of musical chairs!

I can’t wait to see everyone’s inspiration today. With Clearly Besotted’s blog, then Michelle, Lisa, Francine and Caly!

Until tomorrow, when we are meeting some very unsheepish sheep,
