VIDEO | Birthday Bunny

Hello there, today I have the pleasure of Guest Designing for Gerda Steiner Designs. If you haven't already heard of the company, they have a great range of cute clear stamps, as well as digi ones too. For my card today I am using the cute Happy Hoppy set.
 

For my card, I first took some white cardstock and cut this using the rectangle ME Femme Frames die to make a panel. On to this I stamped the sentiment, bunny and balloon from the set. I masked off the bunny before stamping the balloon. I then drew in the balloon string with a Copic Multiliner pen.
 
 
I took the cloud dies from the CB Sky's The Limit die collection and cut these from masking paper. These were added to panel. I then used my Copic Airbrush to colour in the sky using three shades of blue Copic marker. The bunny, balloon and clouds were then coloured using Copic markers. To finish off I added the panel to a white A2 card base with foam tape, followed by a coating of Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents to the balloon and then the bunny's nose.

CB Teasers | Happy Anniversary & Mum To Be

Hello there, today is THE day! All the new products from Clearly Besotted will be releasing tonight at 10pm. I will have more info on that later but first, I wanted to share my last two teaser cards with you. First up is a beautiful mini set called Round Roses. This is a great layering set to make some beautiful roses.
 

I started off by stamping the roses in pink ink on to some white cardstock (you can layer them up but I decided to use just the top later today). I then stamped the leaves (this time I decided to use just the bottom layer). These were then cut out using the matching dies. I also die cut the CB Trellis die from light grey cardstock.
 
 
I took a panel of white cardstock (cut using the ME rectangle Femme Frames die) and added the trellis on to it. I then added the flowers and leaves in the bottom left corner, layered up. The sentiment, from the same Round Roses set, was stamped with black ink and then cut out. This was added on to the panel with foam tape. I added the panel to a grey A2 card base with foam sheet and then to finish off, I added a little clear Wink of Stella to the roses.

Next up is the super cute Nesting mini stamp set. Great for new to be parents!
 

I started off by die cutting the CB Rounded tag die from white cardstock and then stamped the sentiment, birds nest and egg on to this. I took a piece of paper from the MFT Homespun Gingham paper and cut this using the ME rectangle Femme Frames die. This was added to a white A2 card base with ATG.
 
 
 
The tag was added to this with foam tape. I then made a felt bow using the MFT Dainty Bows die and added this on to the top of the tag. I think this set is such a cute way to congratulate new parents :)

I then coloured the whole panel using Copic Markers. I added Glossy Accents to the sword and also the skull and cross-bones on the hat. I also added a little Wink of Stella to the coins and treasure in the chest. The panel was added to a white A2 card base using foam sheet.

CB Teasers | Easter Chicks

Hello there and welcome to more Clearly Besotted Teasers. Today I am sharing a card and a little gift using two new sets. They both contain super cute chick images. The first, Chirpy Chicks is an outline set and the second, Cool Chick is a smaller solid image set. First up is the card I made using the Chirpy Chicks set.


I started off by stamping the chicks on to some white cardstock and then coloured them in using Copic Markers. They were then cut out using the matching die collection. I then applied Glossy Accents to the egg shells and left aside to dry.
 

I took a panel of white cardstock (cut using the SSS Stitched Rectangle dies) and blended over some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. I then took another of the panels, cut this a second time using the ME Grassy Trio die and added Distress Ink on to this also. For the grass I used Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn inks. These were layered up on to a white A2 card base, along with the chicks, to make a little scene. The sentiment is from the Cool Chick set.

COPIC MARKERS: Y17, Y15, Y13, Y11. E51, E50.

Next up, I wanted to create a little gift bag type thing to accompany the card. I first took a sheet of Doodlebug paper and cut this on my Cricut Explore using the Popcorn Box cut file. This was assembled and mini ester eggs added inside. I then wrapped this with a cellophane bag.

 
I cut a WPlus9 Timeless Tag from white cardstock and added some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to it for the sky. I then cut a little grass strip from MFT paper and added this to the bottom. The sentiment, from the Cool Chick set was stamped at the bottom.
 

I then took the Cool Chick set and stamped one of the little chicks on to it using yellow inks. I then stamped the eyes and beak using black ink. The chick was cut out using the matching die from the die collection. He was then added to the tag with foam tape. To finish off, I wrapped the bag up using ribbon and then added the tag with some twine.
