Clearly Besotted Teasers | Let's Celebrate!

Hello there and welcome to the Clearly Besotted November 2019 Teasers. I know I say this every month but seriously, where has the year gone?! The new sets release on the 1st November 2019 and from now until then, we are sharing teasers with you. My card today uses the new It's A Celebration set.

I first took 10 of the hamsters from the Clearly Besotted It's A Celebration Stamp Set and stamped them on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I coloured them using Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area) and then fussy cut them out using scissors.
I took a panel of white cardstock and cut it using the Mama Elephant Circle Grid Die. I placed this over an A2 white card base and drew faint pencil lines inside the circles, this is so that I knew where to ink blend. I then masked off each section separately, erased the pencil line and blended on Distress Inks in rainbow colours. The grid piece was adhered on top with foam tape and then the hamsters added to the windows with more foam tape.
I took the sentiments from the Clearly Besotted Tiny Type Stamp Set and stamped these on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. These were cut in to strips and added to the card across two of the windows. To finish off I added a few Lucy's Raindrops, as well as Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the balloons.

Aren't the hamsters adorable? I love them! I had hamsters as a child but I never remember any of them holding balloons, sadly!
