Clearly Besotted February Release Day!

Hello lovely people! It’s RELEASE DAY! Yay!!

Today is all about lurve!

This scrummy set is called ‘My Sweetheart’ and I absolutely love it! The first set is simply white heat embossed onto some blue textured card. Then coloured in with AquaFlow markers. Next cut out the middle and add a back layer of green and then finish off with a sentiment.

Next up- a really simple card using the same set- same treatment, just using white card!

Isn’t it a perfect set for a valentine or a birthday too- obviously changing up the sentiment! This is a smaller set but I can see you getting so much use from it!

The good news is that the waiting is over. From 8pm tonight (GMT) it’s available in the Clearly Besotted store and also at Simon Says Stamp

Do let me know which of the sets are your favourites and don’t forget to visit the Clearly Besotted Blog,

Michelle ( for a video) then pop over to Facebook because there’s a chance to win!!!

Thankyou so much for your encouragement this week- it does mean a lot to me!

See you soon!

Dazzling Diva Challenge #62

Hi! This week’s challenge is a colour challenge. We’ve all used Dark Chocolate and Scarlet Red metals

IMG_7175 the picture is very cute and I know it might be hard to see on the picture, but the dark chocolate ( apart from the little heart) is actually pleated on the right hand side of the card-this metal pleats so easily!

IMG_7170 I decided to use some Lawn Fawn dies and wanted to utilise two fonts and treat each font as a shaker element but with different shaker contents! After I cut out the sentiment, I carefully pushed some Scarlet red metal through the heart aperture and rubbed until the heart has dimension and stands a little proud of the cardstock aperture.
If you’re worried about the dimension being squished in transit, you can add in some embossing paste to fill it in.
Wonder if embossing paste would do wonders for my wrinkles too! 😉
The diecut section is backed with acetate, each area surrounded with foam pads/strips, the shaker element added and then encapsulated with some card on the reverse. Despite it looking gold, the stars and micro beads are actually silver.
Micro beads!! Remember them?!! I’ve a little stash from when we were all using them a few years ago!
If you’d like to join in- pop here, leave your photo of any project inspired by the photo – and you don’t need to use metal either!
Enjoy joining in!!

Dazzling Diva Challenge #59

Hi! Happy Wednesday to you all!
We’ve got a challenge to use ‘music’ somewhere in our projects and also kinda sneak in a Valentine Day theme if we can
I’ve done a 3D effort- similar to a card I did back with Gallery Idol- it was really quick to make and uses Scarlet Red metal for the tiny hearts
You can see more clearly how I’ve done it- spot the error in the photo!
Yes- I took the photo before completing it- I realised that it really needed a sentiment. All dies and stamps are Lawn Fawn.
Do join in- we’re getting some fabulous weekly entries- just join in here and you could win a voucher to spend on lovely Add A Little Dazzle goodies
See you tomorrow- with some more Winnie & Walter! xx

I will have plenty more to show you shortly though.
Have a demo at the Range (Southport) on Saturday 10:00-4:00pm. Come and say Hi!

I’ve updated my classes.
The first one is Feb 1st ( Friday) 7:30 in Old Swan, Liverpool.
