Enjoy Your Day

Hello there, I am somewhat back to being in my craft room after my time off (thank you so much to everyone that has sent me well wishes, I really do appreciate it) and looking forward to sharing the Clearly Besotted September teasers with you. Before that, I have one last card to share from the August release that I shared in my release video, but never managed to do the blog post for (sorry!).

For my card, I started off by stamping one of the penguins from the Clearly Besotted All Four Seasons Stamp Set on to a panel of white cardstock, using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then stamped the sand castle from the same set beside her. I made a mask for her from mask paper and then stamped the summer image from the Clearly Besotted Scene It Seasons Stamp Set on top.

The mask was removed and then I die cut the panel using a Hero Arts Nesting Circle Infinity Die. The images were coloured using Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area). I took an A2 white card base and embossed the next largest die from the circle die set on to the front. The image panel was added on top with tape runner.
I took the sentiment from the Clearly Besotted Full Of Sentiment Stamp Set and stamped this on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied Detail White Embossing Powder and heat set. This was then cut in to a strip and added to the card with foam tape. To finish off, I added a few Lucy's Ice Cube Jewels around the sentiment.
