Clearly Besotted November Release Day!

You’ve made it to Release Day! It’s been great hearing how much you like this release. So many lovely sets all ready for Christmas.

Today’s set is using ‘Pull The Other One’. I saw the little mouse in the new ‘Merry Mole’ set and just imagined what it would be to pull a cracker and find something really exciting inside.

Bang- oh look it’s a mouse !!! It got me thinking that cracker presents are really utterly useless most of the time. Making my own reusable crackers last year meant I could add in some fun gifts but adding a small rodent never really crossed my mind!!

I can just imagine the squeals of Michael Mouse as he’s catapulted into the air….wheeeeeeeeeeeee.

It’s time to go and see the rest of the team. First up is the Clearly Besotted’s Blog then onto Michelle, Lisa, plus Francine, Mona and Alberto

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.

Don’t forget to enter into the giant giveaway over on the Facebook page for Clearly Besotted. It’s always a major prize winning the whole release!

I’d love to hear about your favourite sets of this release. Which ones do you have your eye on?!

See you soon,

Clearly Besotted November Teasers Day 4

Hello again! Aren’t these teasers fun! The sets are so clever. I’m going back to ‘Tangled In Tinsel’ today with a more unusual card- using a half sized tent folded card.

I stamped the tree image three times and coloured it in with Copics. I trimmed one or two of the presents off the main image and rearranged them.

As for the sentiment, it’s never too late to be nice!! I love the little guy in the wreath. He’d look cute on top of the tree too. I wonder what ways you’ll use this set.

I’ve added more of the little stars which just give a little twinkle to the tree. Just a simple design and a bonus one if you enjoy colouring in.

Please don’t miss Clearly Besotted’s Blog then onto Lisa, Michelle plus Francine, Mona and Alberto . It’s sure to be something fun!

Hope to see you tomorrow for Release Day,

Clearly Besotted November Teasers Day 3

Hello! How’s all your organising going? Any Christmas cards made? Well I’m woefully behind, I could really do with a whole day spent batch making cards. Tags, I’m sorted, but these few cards from this month’s release is certainly helping the total!

Today I’m using ‘Tangled In Tinsel’. I used to hate tinsel, but its over the top charm and retro vibe certainly makes me smile. Whilst there’s no tinsel in this scene, there’s all the fun of those last minute preparations.

I wanted to have a complete room scene so used some Jen Hadfield ‘Reaching Out’ paper for the wallpaper. The set has a complete tree scene and you just add the characters helping decorate the tree. I used one of last month’s sets ‘Merry Mix ‘n’ Match Squeak‘ for the mouse in the window.

I love the way the fox is jumping up to put the angel on top of the tree and the other creatures rushing around decorating the lounge. You could create a scene outside in the woods or combine it with other sets you already own.

That little mouse is exactly where I’d love to be right now, having a little nap after watching the flakes fall softly down from a gentle blue sky. Ahh, almost makes you want to reach for a mince pie!

It’s time to go over to Clearly Besotted’s Blog then onto Michelle, Lisa, plus Francine, Mona and Alberto . I can’t wait to see what they’ve created.

Take care, until tomorrow,

Clearly Besotted November Teasers Day 2

Hello! How are you? Hope your day is sunny and bright – just like this card. Today’s set is called ‘Pull The Other One’. I’m not sure if the pile of presents was designed like a Christmas tree but I thought it looked just like one. I borrowed the star from the set ‘Tangled In Tinsel’.

I wanted to give the background some movement- as the two little friends are about to make a wish and snap the wishbone. I used the Sunny Day Stencil and the pile of present tree hides the ‘sun’ part of the stencil.

I added a glittered up star and lots of tiny stars from Lucy’s Cards. You can see where I messed up with a little dirty stamping but from a distance, you can’t tell.

Aren’t those two so cute? You can tell that one of them is about to fall over once it snaps. I wonder what they’re going to wish for? Currently I’m wishing for someone to purchase and wrap all of my gifts for Christmas!! 😉

It’s time to visit Clearly Besotted’s Blog then onto Lisa, Michelle plus our lovely guests this month Francine, Mona and Alberto . I can’t wait to see what they’ve designed!

Well I do hope you’ll pop back tomorrow,

Thanks, Keren x

Clearly Besotted November Teasers Day 1

Hello lovely people! How is your day today? We’re back to the Teasers for the Clearly Besotted November Release. Today I’m using the ‘Bee Merry’ set and it’s just a brilliantly fun scene making set.

The set has lots of festive bees busying themselves with seasonal activities. I had my Brenda bee hanging up more baubles making the Beemingham area look so pretty.

I stamped two beehives and trimmed the foliage off one so I could extend the branches to add more baubles onto.

The top of the beehive has lashings of sparkly snow and I love the stencil – the Honeycomb Crunch Stencil which gives some lovely texture to the background using Salvaged Patina Distress ink. The baubles and bees are all coloured with Copic Markers.

Aren’t Brenda’s wings cute all shimmering and sparkling. I coloured them in with blue Copic marker and then added translucent glitter over the top.

I would love to see festooned beehives and baubles hanging in the woods. Maybe Brenda needs to have a word with her fellow worker bees!

There’s plenty more to see still.

Do head over to Clearly Besotted’s Blog then onto Michelle, Lisa, plus Francine, Mona and Alberto . I can’t wait to see what they’ve designed!

See you tomorrow,
