Clearly Besotted April Teasers Day 4

Well Hi! How’s your day going? Today is all about love; sending love and being loved! We’re revisiting the set ‘Paper Play’ with the cutest little raccoon. I wanted to try and do another origami shape.

It’s not easy folding the paper and this shape ended up looking like something that had eaten too much! So I recreated the same shape but just used pieces that I folded in the same way so it ended up thinner.

I stamped the heart from patterned paper and trimmed out and I love how it changes the look of the image. The sentiment was stamped onto a strip of patterned paper too. The whole card came together really quickly.

Unless you looked really closely you’d never know- and who doesn’t love a good shortcut. I did want to recreate one of the characters with a boat shaped card blank- maybe I’ll try that next week!

I added them onto a piece of patterned paper and then another piece onto the base. It provides impact without having to do any colouring; result!!

Please pop over to the Clearly Besotted blog and Instagram too. Plus also my superb team mate Michelle Short.

Please also go and visit Francine Vuilleme, Adele Emery, Mona Toth and Alberto Gava to view their wonderful creations.

See you tomorrow as it’s release day!

Clearly Besotted April Teasers Day 2

We’re back again with a set that I absolutely adore! It’s called Paper Play and I’ve had fun creating two projects (one later this week) using this set.

Who doesn’t love a bit of origami?! My Mum used to make all sorts of origami animals and when I saw this set, I just knew I needed to have some origami as the base for the cute critters. Having done a little origami, I knew that ideally I needed to have thin origami paper but I really wanted to use the pretty paper so I persevered and had to squish some rather chunky folds. But I was delighted in the end result, albeit with less precise folds than I’d have liked. Isn’t the butterfly so dimensional!

The little fox seems rather proud of himself for having created such a wonderful piece of origami and is busy showing all of his friends. The sentiment seems entirely appropriate too.

You wouldn’t need to make an origami butterfly- you could simply use a die cut one, or cut out a shape yourself. It makes however a nice change from a flat matt and I’ll definitely try some more shapes. My kids were rather amused seeing me watch some 11 year old kid on YouTube whilst I learned how to construct the shape!!

It’s time now to visit the Clearly Besotted blog and on Instagram too. As usual, please go and visit my lovely team mate Michelle Short.

Then we have Francine Vuilleme, Adele Emery, Mona Toth and Alberto Gava to visit who always create wonderful things!

Hope to see you tomorrow,
