You're The Best

Hello there, so did you see that Clearly Besotted Stamps released some new dies? these are standalone dies that do not necessarily match any of the stamp sets but obviously will work well with them. Stephanie did not want to make a big deal of them and add them to the normal monthly releases as she thinks they are nothing special. They are the kind of shapes that can be bought from other manufacturers and Stephanie has acknowledged that but personally I love them! I think she has added her individual touch to them and I am sure you will love them too.
For my card today I have used the Geometric Rose Die in the large size (there is smaller one too). I first cut it from a panel of white cardstock and kept all the little insides (the negatives of the die shape) and then cut it from Bazzill Card Shoppe CS in Robin's Egg. I inlayed this in the centre of the white panel cut out followed by al the little negative pieces. This means that cardstock panel remain one layer. I have added clear Wink Of Stella over the Robin's Egg CS. I have then stamped the sentiment from the A Little Sentimental stamp set and cut it out using the banner die from the Tag Along die set. I added this on top of the die image with £D foam pads and popped on a couple of gems (coloured with a Copic Marker) to finish.


This card is winging it's way to a very special person who really is the best :0) Thank you for visiting me today and I hope you have a lovely weekend.


  1. this is such a stunning card Michelle, such a fabulous idea !

  2. Gorgeous as ever.
    I really like the inlay design & I wouldn't have thought of putting the 'waste' back in.
    I'm with you - these stand alone dies are fabby! I really needed to wait til payday after so many orders this month, but I managed to squirrel away the notebook die & the trellis die, heehee! X

    I hope you are having a great weekend.
