VIDEO | Clearly Besotted May 2015 Release

Hello there, I am back to share with you my Clearly Besotted release video. If you have never seen one of these before, it is where I show all the products (I have been told it helps people see the sizing etc.) as well as a re-cap of how I used the sets.
 
The new products will be available to purchase this evening from 10pm BST. You can purchase them from the Clearly Besotted Shop, Simon Says Stamp and Ellen Hutson.
 


I hope you like the new sets? Which ones have caught your eye? There are another two standalone die sets that I did not show in the video, coming out tonight. They are the beautiful flower builder collection, as well as the ribbon bobbins collection. As always, I have had a great time using these products, making cards to share with you. Thank you Stephanie and Jenny! Thanks so much for visiting me today and happy shopping! ;)

CB Teasers | Introducing Ribbon Flowers & Everything Changes

Hello there, today is THE day! All the new Clearly Besotted products will be released this evening and I have another two teasers today to share with you. The first one uses the new Ribbon Flowers stamp set.


I first took a cardstock square which had been cut using one of the squares from the SSS Stitched Squares Die Collection. This was stamped with one of the stem images, as well as one of the flower head images from the set. I love this set because you can mix and match them all to make whatever flowers you want.


I then took the sentiment from the set and stamped this using black ink. The panel was added to a purple card base with the top layer cut using the Lil' Inker Designs Quilted Stitched Pattern die. I finished off by adding a little clear Wink of Stella to the flower.

My next card uses the new Everything Changes stamp set, along with one of the sentiment from the Ribbon Flowers set.


As you can see, my card is super simple! I first took an A2 card base and stamped the butterflies from the Everything Changes set on to it using Hero Arts Red to Pink Ombre Ink. The sentiment is simply stamped on top using black ink.


I thought about adding sequins or rhinestones to the card but decided I really like the simplicity of it like it is :)

That's it! You have seen all my teasers using the new sets. I hope you have enjoyed seeing them? Stephanie will be sharing the full reveal shortly, along with links to the rest of the DT also sharing today. I would also just like to thank our Guest Designer Rebecca, for being fab again this month! I will be back this afternoon with my release video and sample re-cap. I hope you can join me for that.

CB Teasers | Introducing Scribbled Flowers & Delightful Day

Hello there and welcome back to another day of Clearly Besotted Teasers. Not long to wait now until the new release. The new products will be on sale tomorrow evening from 10pm. Today I have two summery cards to share with you. The first one uses the new Scribbled Flowers set.


I first took a piece of white cardstock and cut this using the second largest square in the SSS Stitched Squares Die Collection. I then took two of the scribbled flowers from the stamp set, along with the two sizes of leaves and stamped these in random pattern over the panel. This was then adhered to a 3.5x3.5" notecard made from PTI Raspberry Fizz cardstock.


I took the sentiment from the set and stamped this on the same Raspberry Fizz cardstock, using Versmark. I applied WOW Bright White embossing powder and then heat set. This was cut out using the banner die from the Tag Along Collection (previously released). I cut the right end off and added it to the card base with foam tape. I finished off by adding a few Doodlebug Sprinkles.

My next card uses the new Delightful day stamp set. I first took the flower stems image, as well as the glass vase and stamped these on to some white cardstock. These were coloured using Copic Markers. I think the flowers could be a number of different varieties but I coloured them to look a bit like Sunflowers. These were then fussy cut out.


I took a white card base (4.25x4.25") and added a strip of paper from the Lawn Fawn Let's Polka pad down the right side. I then took another piece of white cardstock and added this to the left. This piece was stamped with one of the sentiments' from the set (isn't that font beautiful?) and then the flower image was added with foam tape.

 
I added a little clear Wink of Stella to the flower centres and then a few Doodlebug Sprinkles around the image to finish.

CB Teasers | Introducing My Hero & Shaker Dies

Hello there and welcome back to another day of Clearly Besotted Teasers. Have you seen that the Clearly Besotted shop are now selling lots of other goodies to go along with stamps and dies? They are now selling paper pads, stencils, tools, lots of inks and plenty more. One product they are also selling are the beautiful Sequin Shaker Mixes by Lucy Abrams. I wanted to combine some of these with my cards today.

For my first card, I am using the new My Hero set. It is a great set that is tailored towards the males in our lives. For today's card though, I have used one of the accompanying sentiments that can be used for any occasion and combined it with one of the sequin mixes, for a shaker card.


I first took a piece of white cardstock and ran this through my Cuttlebug to make an aperture using the largest star from the Superstar die collection (previously released). I added a piece of transparency to the back and then a ton of foam tape. I added some of the Gold Dust Sequin Shaker Mix inside and the applied a piece of white cardstock behind.


The panel was then adhered to a white 4-Bar size card. I took the 'you're a star' sentiment from the My Hero set and stamped this on to a separate piece of cardstock, cut this out and added this overlapping the star with more foam tape. I finished off by adding a few gold DB Sprinkles around the sentiment piece.

My next card uses one of the new shaker dies, also designed by the amazing Lucy Abrams.


I took the thanks shaker die and cut this from a panel of white cardstock. Like the card above, I added some transparency behind and then this time I used foam sheet to make the shaker window.


I applied Sequin Shaker Mixes in Glacier and Iridescent White to this and then applied another piece of white cardstock to the back. The panel was then adhered to a white card base. I love that these dies make such quick and simple cards. You do not need to add anything else to it (of course you could though!). Although simple to make, I did make a video showing how I did it.
