Clearly Besotted January Release Day!

How are you all today? Hope you’re excited about the new release, it’s really a fun one! If you’re anything like me, some days simply don’t go to plan. Things break, you fall over, bump your head and get cracking bruises.. or is that just me!! This little pussycat from ‘Purrfect Valentine’ is having one of those days….

Hahaha. I just adore his optimistically placed heart headband. Doesn’t the sentiment say it all?!!

I simply added some ‘stars’ that he’s seeing due to the bang on his head which was also due to slipping and falling thanks to the bottle that fell and broke when he swished his tail and it went flying. I love that the alcohol pens blended so perfectly and looked exactly like spilled wine!

The gold stars are from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards, and are just so dinky and cute (yes, I forgot to rub out the pencil lines but I didn’t want to smudge the glue on the stars!!)

We’re nearly at Release time! The release goes live at 8pm GMT. All sets are available tonight on the Clearly Besotted store and also from Simon Says Stamp and don’t forget the giveaway on Clearly Besotted’s page on Facebook.

There is still inspiration to come; do see Clearly Besotted’s blog and then Michelle for her usual round up and video inspiration!

Thanks for visiting this month- I’d love to know which set has been your favourite!

Clearly Besotted January Teasers Day 4

Well we’re nearly there, nearly at Release Day!

Today we’re taking a second look at the set ‘Gnome One Like You’. If you look at the scene, you could be forgiven for assuming there was a lovely, sweet old gnome couple…

These two gnomes might look sweetness and light.. and maybe they are! But look at the window of the mushroom house where there isn’t mush room… can you see the other gnome?

Is he in danger…is he lost, or is he hiding? He might look a little distressed..

Whether they’re creepy or cute, I did rather love the dried effect of the glitter glue; crackled and fun! It looks like my skin feels every morning!

The inspiration hasn’t ended -there’s still the Clearly Besotted blog plus Lisa and Michelle to visit yet.

Do come back tomorrow when I’ve got one last project for you before the Release is live!

Clearly Besotted January Teasers Day 3

Hi there… I love a fun card and this set I’m showcasing today has a high level of snark! It’s called ‘Purrfect Valentine’ but just like so many of Clearly Besotted’s sets, it ain’t just for one occasion!

I just love this set. My daughter calls our cat grumpy and it reminds me of him…

It’s not his fault, poor Kovu, his face was created that way!!

The backstory to this scene is two sibling cats. There’s one longsuffering one called Suki (the ginger one) and the sneaky misbehaving one who looks like butter wouldn’t melt in her mouth (she’s called Nori). Well Suki decided she’d have a little snooze. Whilst she was dozing, the owners best plant was delicately placed on her head, but not until Nori had swiped the bloom half off the top. She’d also balanced a valentine’s card next to it, temporarily stunned the friendly neighbourhood mouse and blamed it on Suki. You can understand why Suki is narked but why Nori?

Well her owner saw through the lies, and gave her a real tongue wagging. Suki wins the day! You can even see the glitter on the card. The sentiments are utterly brilliant in the set so I’ve used them but these would make a perfect Birthday card too!

Time to wander over to the Clearly Besotted Blog plus Michelle and Lisa.

See you again tomorrow,

Clearly Besotted January Teasers Day 2

Welcome back! It’s so nice having a little more time to visit blogs and see what everyone’s been up to on social media. Today we’re looking at the set ‘Gnome One Like You’. Great title for a stamp set, isn’t it!

I’ve gone for the world at the top of the Faraway Tree vibe!! You know those Enid Blyton books “The Magic Faraway Tree’, where the worlds at the top of the tree kept changing? Well it’s a magical one, and quite a nice one too.

He’s blue because he’s kind of a smurf, with a beard and he’s been collecting flowers for his friend who he’s missed dreadfully hence the sentiment! I think we all have been missing people this year and that sentiment is going to be so useful for so many people.

As usual, the images are coloured in with alcohol markers and arranged on some patterned paper. I’ve used the Raindrops from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards.

Then…. it’s time to visit the Clearly Besotted Blog plus lovely Lisa and magnificent Michelle

Clearly Besotted January Teasers Day 1

Helloooo!! I hope you’ve had a wonderful Christmas. Just like that, it’s just over for another year and we’re swinging into Teaser Time!

Today I’m using a set called ‘Creating Chemistry’ and it’s cute meets love meets nerd with a little ‘best teacher’ thrown in for good measure; i.e. the perfect all rounder set and great for teens and blokes too!

The story behind this is a little fantastical- so bear with me!! Yes, it is supposed to be a double helix, and no, I haven’t lost the plot (I lost that a long time ago!!). The double helix was drawn freehand to go with the idea I had in my head.

There were three cute scientists trying to solve the problem of unrequited love. They were getting closer to finding the magical ingredient that would make everyone fall in love with you. Despite warnings from other leading scientists that the world wasn’t ready for this discovery, they continued with their quest.

The formula had be calculated and the proofs were ready. They decided to create the formula and unfortunately it caused an explosion. The scientists shrunk to the microscopic size where a double helix was larger than them and it spun them around, creating a mini cyclone which split the helix and tiny shards flew across the room. Is there a happy ending? No, only a sage warning that no-one needs everyone to fall in love with them- it could get very complicated!

The scientists never regained their size, they live under the floorboards of a laboratory conducting experiments of their own!!

So now we’d love you to visit the Clearly Besotted blog, Michelle and Lisa! They’ll have wonderful cards and tags for you, and hopefully with a little more sanity in them!

See you tomorrow,

Keren xx
