Clearly Besotted Teasers | Plushies In Wonderland

Hello there and welcome to the Clearly Besotted June 2022 Teasers. Release day is Wednesday 1st June 2022 and from now until then, us on the Design Team (and fabulous guests) will be sharing teasers with you using the new sets. For my card today, I am using the new Plushies In Wonderland set. This fun set is inspired by Alice In Wonderland and features lots of fun critters and sentiments. 

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.



I started off my card by stamping the koala/mad hatter image from the Clearly Besotted Plushies In Wonderland Stamp Set on to a panel of white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then made a mask for him and stamped the mushroom/toadstool image from the Clearly Besotted Sweet Floral Gnomes Stamp Set on top, so that he was sitting in front of the mushroom. 


I made a mask for this too and then added ink blending on top with Distress Inks. I used Mermaid Lagoon for the sky and a little Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn for the grass. I removed the masks and coloured the images with Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area for reference) and also added a little shadow in places with a black Polychromos Pencil. 


I took the sentiment from the Clearly besotted Sweet Floral Scenes Stamp Set and stamped it on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied White Detail Embossing Powder and heat set. It was cut in to a strip. I adhered the panel to an A2 white card base with thin foam tape and then the sentiment on top (with the same foam tape). To finish off, I added white gel pen highlights and black glaze pen to his eyes and nose.

VIDEO | MFT Fairy Special

Hello there, I am over on the My Favorite Things YouTube channel today, sharing a card with a simple night sky using the Fairy Special set. This is such a sweet set, the fairies are pretty small but there are other elements in the set to make lovely scenes with. I just decided to use one fairy and a sentiment on my card today, though. 

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.



I started off by stamping one of the fairies from the MFT Fairy Special Stamp Set on to white cardstock with MFT Extreme Black Ink. I coloured her with Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies section for reference) and die cut her out with the MFT Fairy Special Die-namics (watch the video to see a trick on how I lined it up!). 


I took a panel of white cardstock (eventual size being 3.75" x 5") and added ink blending to it with Ink Blending Brushes and Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks. I used Chipped Sapphire at the top, followed by Shaded Lilac in the middle and Kitsch Flamingo at the bottom. I then splattered it with water and Sparkle Sheer Shimmer Spritz before setting it aside to dry. 


The panel was adhered to an A2 white card base with thin foam tape. I then stamped the sentiment using Versamark Ink on to MFT Black Licorice Cardstock. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. It was cut in to a strip and added tot he card with more thin foam tape, along with the fairy. To finish off, I added Copic Lilac Spica Pen sots to the wings, followed by 05 white pen. I added Clear Glaze Pen to the wand and then 08 white gel pen highlights to the fairy. To embellish, I added a few Lucy's Cards Sprinkles: Wisteria Circles.

Your Heart Is So Big

Hello there, today I have a card to share with you using the beautiful Lily Frame from Pinkfresh Studio. I guest designed with them for the February release and although I used this set, I only used it for a sentiment, not the frame itself, so I wanted to use it on my card today. 

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.



I started off by stamping the Pinkfresh Lily Frame Stamp Set image on to MFT Heavyweight Translucent Vellum using Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. I also stamped two butterflies from the Pinkfresh Studio Botanicals & Butterflies Stamp Set and heat embossed those on vellum too. I added Altenew Double-Sided Adhesive Sheet on to the back of the Lily Frame and then die cut out using the coordinating die. 


When die cutting the butterflies, I also die cut them from solid colours of cardstock too. Speaking of cardstock, I took Concord & 9th Cardstock in Ballet Slippers, Honeysuckle, Sprout, Aqua Sky and Oceanside and cut them in to strips. They were added to a white card base in a diagonal. The lily frame was then adhered on top. 


I took the sentiment, from the Pinkfresh Studio Just A Hello Floral Set, and stamped it on to white cardstock with Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink. It was die cut with the coordinating die and added to the card with thin foam tape. The butterflies were adhered to the cardstock layers with vellum adhesive (just on the bodies) and then adhered to the card. To finish off, I added a few Pinkfresh Studio Glacier Jewels

The card did end up a little busier than I would usually go, but I like the colours and embossing on vellum is always pretty! Thank you so much for stopping by today, I really do appreciate it. Wishing you a wonderful day and a great weekend!

Hero Arts | Mixed Media Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello there, today is a super fun day as the new summer 2022 release from Hero Arts is out now! This release is focused on mixed media, but if you are not in to that, the products can be used in lots of different ways. 

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.

There are new stamps and lots of different mediums in this release - pearlescent paste, waxes, liquid pearls plus new tools like a beautiful palette knife and scrubber block to clean stamps whilst in the MISTI (so helpful!) plus more! There are also new colours of cardstock and we have revamped some of our inks too as part of the new Hero Arts Color System. These will be released on 20th June, but there are some sneaky peeks over on the website now, as well as the full photo in the catalogue.

We are celebrating the release with a fun, inspiration filled blog hop, along with prizes. More details on that below. Apologies for the long blog post but I hope you enjoy the inspiration!

I am starting off by sharing two projects featuring three of the new stamp sets - Floral Silhouettes, Critter Silhouettes and Art Journal Messages. The messages set is perfect for art journaling, as the name suggests, but also good for cards and other papercraft projects too. 

I started off my taking a panel of Hero Arts Deluxe Smooth White Cardstock and blended Reactive Inks on top using Hero Arts Extra Large Ink Blending Brushes. I used (bottom to top) Pool Party, Blue Raspberry, Blue Hawaii and Purple Galaxy. I then took the Hero Arts Floral Silhouettes Stamp Set and stamped four of the flowers towards of the bottom of the panel, using Hero Arts Intensified Black Ink

I did stamp them a few times, to get a nice dark impression. I then splattered on a little Hero Arts Rose Gold & White Glimmer Metallic Inks (the white), before setting aside to dry. Once dry, it was adhered to an A2 white card base with thin foam tape. The dragonfly, from the Hero Arts Critter Silhouettes Stamp Set, was stamped on to Hero Arts Vellum Layering Paper with Hero Arts Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink

I applied Hero Arts Black Detail Embossing Powder and heat set. It was fussy cut out with scissors and added to the card with black foam tape. I then stamped the sentiment, from the Hero Arts Art Journal Messages Stamp Set, with Hero Arts Intensified Black Ink onto white cardstock, fussy cut it out and adhered it to the card with more thin foam tape. 

For my tag, I started off by die cutting the Hero Arts Tag Infinity Dies from Hero Arts Deluxe Smooth White Cardstock. Using Hero Arts Extra Large Ink Blending Brushes, I blended on Reactive Inks. I used (bottom to top) Creamsicle, Taffy, Berry Smoothie and Blue Hawaii. I took the leaf image from the Hero Arts Floral Silhouette Stamp Set and stamped it multiple times using Hero Arts Intensified Black Ink

I added more Glimmer Ink splatters and then set it aside to dry. Once dry, I adhered it back to back with another white tag. I also added the hole reinforcer cut from Hero Arts Pitch Black Cardstock. The sentiment, from the Hero Arts Art Journal Messages Stamp Set, was stamped on to black cardstock with Hero Arts Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink. I applied Hero Arts White Embossing Powder and heat set.

It was cut in to two strips using the dies in the Hero Arts Message Strips Stamp & Cut XL set and adhered to the tag with thin foam tape. I die cut small butterflies from the Hero Arts Butterfly Confetti Fancy Die from vellum and adhere them to the tag with vellum adhesive. To finish off, I added a black enamel dot to each (from the Hero Arts Neutrals Enamel Dots pack) and then twine through the top of the tag.

I also wanted to share with you two projects that I made for the catalogue using older products that work well for mixed media. Now, I have to admit, mixed media has never really been my thing, but I did enjoy creating these! First up is a little wood slice ...

It uses the Hero Floral Poppy embossed on to vellum. I prepped a small wood slice with clear gesso and then added Hero Paste through a stencil that I made by die cutting the Hero Arts Honeycomb Fancy Die from cardstock. Once dry, I added ink blending on top using Hero Hues Onyx Pigment Ink; wiping off the excess ink from the embossing paste. I then splattered with Gold Glimmer Metallic Ink

I die cut the Hero Arts Hexagon Infinity Dies from Hero Arts Glitter Paper Holiday Sparkle (gold) and adhered them on top, followed by the poppy. I did add a sentiment from the Hero Arts Congrats Happy Stamp & Cut set but we decided for the catalogue to take it off. I prefer it without the sentiment, but I didn't get a photo before sending it to Hero HQ. You can see it in the Hero Arts 2022 Mixed Media Catalog (and the graphic below) without the sentiment though! 

Next up is a large (Tim Holtz Etcetera 5.5" x 10") wooden tag. I primed it with white gesso and then  added Dina Wakley Stickyback Canvas Tape on top. I messily stamped Hero Arts Script Bold Prints on top using Hero Arts Intensified Black Inkbefore adding colour with Hero Arts Liquid Watercolor in Dark Teal and Black. I also splatted on the same white metallic ink used above, as well as some white acrylic paint.

I stamped the butterfly from Hero Arts Color Layering Monarch Butterfly with Intensified Black Ink and coloured with the watercolours before fussy cutting out. I die cut the Hero Arts Looking Glass Ornate Frame from Pitch Black Cardstock three times, layered them up and then added them to the tag, with the butterfly in the middle. The sentiment is from the Hero Arts Empowerment Stamp Set. I finished off with Hero Arts EarthSafe Glitter and black enamel dots. 

I did create two cards using the same design as my mixed media projects, but I will share them another day!

VIDEO | Vellum Butterflies

Hello there, I am over on the My Favorite Things YouTube Channel today, sharing a card using the Winged Wonders set. This set is so pretty! I love butterflies and thought that this set was perfect for colouring, ink blending and embossing on vellum, which is what I am doing today. 

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.



I started off my card by stamping two of the MFT Winged Wonders butterflies on to MFT Heavyweight Translucent Vellum using Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. They were then die cut out using the MFT Winged Wonders Die-namics


I took a panel of white cardstock and added strips of cardstock to the bottom right hand corner. I used Spellbinders Chamomile, MFT Lemon Drop, MFT Grapesicle, MFT Grape Jelly and MFT Boysenberry. I adhered the strips with MFT On-Point Precision Glue and then cut off the excess using my guillotine. The panel was adhered to a white A2 card base with thin foam tape. 


The sentiment, from the MFT Winged Wonders Stamp Set, was heat embossed in white on to MFT Black Licorice Cardstock. It was then cut in to a strip. it was adhered to the larger butterfly and then using tape runner, I added adhesive behind the sentiment strip and added it to the card. The smaller butterfly was adhered with Vellum Adhesive Tape Runner. To finish off, I added a few Lucy's Cards Bubbles.

Spellbinders | Stitched Alphabet

Hello there, today I have a card to share with you using the new Stitched Alphabet Collection from Spellbinders. This collection features the letters from the alphabet with holes in so that you can stitch patterns on them. You can use them without too, if you wanted to! The dies also feature the shadow too, so lots of different ways you can use them! 

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.


I chose which letters to use before I had seen this month's Large Die of the Month Club Kit, which funnily enough, also features a stitched you! The shadow die on that one is all one piece, whereas these ones are singular. The size of the letters is the same though, so you can mix and match! You can see my card using that set here


I started off my card by die cutting the Spellbinders Stitched Y, O and U Etched Dies from white cardstock. I then stitched them using aqua embroidery floss. You can do the stitching in different ways, I decided to keep mine very simple! I then die cut the shadow pieces from Spellbinders Waterfall Cardstock. I cut these twice. 


I adhered the two shadow layers one on top of another and then the stitched letters on top, with small pieces of foam tape. The letters were adhered to an A2 white card base with Bearly Art Glue. I stamped the sentiment, from the Clearly Besotted A Little Sentimental Stamp Set, on to white cardstock with Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink. It was cut in to a strip and added to the card with foam tape. 


I die cut the Spellbinders Mini Blooms and Sprigs Etched Dies from Spellbinders Cardstock - the flowers from Teal Topaz, the centres from Chamomile and the leaves and sprigs from Peridot and Rainforest. They were adhered to the card with Bearly Art Glue and foam squares. To finish off, I added teeny gems from the Spellbinders Silver Mix Color Essentials Gems to the centres of the stitching flowers.

Simon Says Stamp | Arched Borders

Hello there, today I have a card and tag to share with you using the new Arched Borders stamp set from Simon Says Stamp as part of their new Yay You release, which is out today. This is a really fun set with sentiments, a few images (flowers, hearts, leaves) and some arched borders. 

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.



I started off my card by stamping the leaf border from the Simon Says Stamp Arched Borders Stamp Set on to Tim Holtz Watercolor Paper using Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. I then took it to my splat box and sprayed Distress Ink Spray Stains on top. I used Twisted Citron, Salvaged Patina, Peacock Feathers and Mermaid Lagoon. I also added a little water here are there. 


I set the panel aside to dry and once dry, wiped off any excess ink off of the embossing powder with a dry cloth. It was then die cut using a Hero Arts Nesting Rectangle Infinity Dies and adhered to an A2 white card base with foam tape. I took the Simon Says Stamp Sending Die and die cut it three times from white cardstock. 


They were stacked up one on top of another and adhered to the card. I then took the hugs sentiment from the Arched Borders set and stamped it on to black cardstock and heat embossed in white. It was cut in to a strip and added to the card with foam tape. To finish off, I added a few Lucy's Cards Bubbles


I couldn't resist creating a tag too! So I took a panel of cardstock that I had made previously while making these cards and die cut it using a Hero Arts Tag Infinity Die. I took the leaf image from the Simon Says Stamp Arched Borders Stamp Set and stamped it on to vellum using Versamark Ink


I applied white embossing powder and heat set. It was then fussy cut out with scissors. I heat embossed another sentiment from the set on to black cardstock and cut it in to a strip. It was added to the leaf using foam tape and then in turn to the tag using tape runner. To finish off, I added twine through the top and tied in a bow.

Reverse Confetti | 9th Birthday Release Blog Hop

Hello there and welcome as we celebrate the May 2022 release from Reverse Confetti. It is extra exciting because it is Reverse Confetti's 9th Birthday too! I have loved Reverse Confetti's style from the beginning and I am so happy and honoured that I work with them for their releases. Every release just puts a smile on my face! :) We are celebrating the release with a fun, inspirational blog hop. More details on that below. 

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.

For my first two cards, I am using the super cure Birthday Buddies set, along with the Birthday Buddies Banter set which features really fun sentiments to go along with the images. 


I started off my first card by stamping the bee from the Reverse Confetti Birthday Buddies Stamp Set on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I also stamped the heart trail from the Reverse Confetti Love Bugs Set. The bee was coloured using Copic Markers. It was die cut out using the Reverse Confetti Birthday Buddies Confetti Cuts and set aside. 


I die cut the Reverse Confetti Big Sun Confetti Cuts from white and yellow cardstock. On the yellow layers, I added ink blending with Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Mustard Seed and Wild Honey. They were then adhered to white layers for some added dimension. I also die cut three clouds from the Reverse Confetti Over the Rainbow Confetti Cuts from white cardstock. 


The sun was added to an A2 white card base with liquid glue and then the bee, trail and clouds added with a combination of thin foam tape and glue. I took the sentiment from the Reverse Confetti Birthday Buddies Banter Stamp Set and stamped it on to black cardstock with Versamark ink. I applied White Detail Embossing Powder and heat set. It was cut in to a strip and added to the card with more thin foam tape. To finish off, I added a few Lucy's Cards Raindrops. 


For my next card, I started off by stamping the turtle and balloons from the Reverse Confetti Birthday Buddies Stamp Set on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I coloured them with Copic Markers and die cut them with the Reverse Confetti Birthday Buddies Confetti Cuts


I took a panel of white cardstock and added ink blending to it with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks and blending brushes. I used Chipped Sapphire, Blueprint Sketch, Prize Ribbon and Shaded Lilac. I then splattered on Dr. Ph. Martin's Bleed Proof White Paint and set it aside to dry. 


Once dry, it was adhered to an A2 white card base and then the balloons added on top with another two layers of white die cuts. The turtle was added with foam tape. The sentiment, from the Reverse Confetti Birthday Buddies Banter Stamp Set, was heat embossed in white on to black cardstock, cut out and added to the card with foam tape. To finish off, I added a few Lucy's Cards Raindrops. 


For my last card, I couldn't resist inking up the beautiful Wildflowers set. This set is so pretty and perfect for colouring but can be used without too, like I have done today. I started off by creating my ink blended background using Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks on Heavystock Cardstock. I used Ink Blending Tools and Domed Foams with Chipped Sapphire, Shaded Lilac and Kitsch Flamingo Oxide Inks. 


I then spritzed on some water before setting it aside to dry. Once dry, It was die cut using the frame in the Reverse Confetti Layered Mom with Frame Confetti Cuts. I also die cut the frame separately from white cardstock twice. On the inside piece of the ink blended one, I stamped the Reverse Confetti Wildflowers Stamp Set image using Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink. 


I then stamped the sentiment from the set above the flowers. The piece, along with the frame were then splattered with Dr. Ph. Martin's Bleed Proof White Paint and Sparkle Sheer Shimmer Spritz. It was set aside to dry and once dry, I layered up the frame and adhered it to a 4" x 5.25" white card base. The stamped piece was then popped inside.
