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!

Clearly Besotted July/Aug Teasers Day 2

Hello again! How are you today? For any of you who missed the information yesterday, July and August are being released together due to some manufacturing delays that are now resolved and the September release teasers will begin on Sept 1st as usual.

This card is exactly how I felt yesterday…

The icecream is having a’s from the new set ‘Ice Ice Plushies’. As usual there are some fabulous sentiments and the cutest bunch of icecream friends. When I saw the cute icecream van, I knew I wanted to have it melting. It’s pretty easy- I just scribbled some blobs of pink using Copic markers. You can see the detail here- I added some waffle cone markings and some extra sprinkles. Imagine trying to lick an icecream THAT big!

The little guy holding onto his giant icecream, is sampling a Twister; I used to love those. My current childish favourite is Nobbly-Bobbly lollies. What’s your favourite?

So then, without further delay let me pass you over to the rest of the team and our lovely guests.

Do visit the Clearly Besotted Blog, then onto Lisa, Michelle and the lovely Francine Vuilleme plus visit Mona and Alberto over on Instagram

Thanks for visiting, I’ll see you tomorrow,
