Clearly Besotted Teasers | Piggy Mail

Hello there and welcome to day one of the Clearly Besotted Teasers for the December 2019 release. I cannot believe that we are on the December release already, this year has flown by! Anyway, the new products release on the 1st December 2019 at 8pm GMT. From now until then, we will be sharing teasers with you using the new sets. My card and tag today use the new Love Letters set.

I started off by creating my card. I took a panel of white cardstock and stamped the letter/envelope outline image from the Clearly Besotted Love Letters Stamp Set on to my panel using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I masked off the first one and then stamped it again on the right hand side. This set is geared towards love letters (as the name suggests), but I thought it would be fun to use the set to resemble a post card.

For the front of the postcard, I took one of the pigs from the set (there are a few different ones) and stamped this in the left hand side outline. I made a mask for him and then stamped the beach scene image from the Clearly Besotted Scene It More Stamp Set on top. The mask was then removed to reveal the pig sitting on the beach. I then stamped the sentiment above. I took the postage stamp from the Love Letters set and stamped this on to what is the back of the postcard.
I stamped the pig face inside and then the lines to represent the franking of the postage stamp. The postcards were then coloured using Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area). The panel was adhered to an A2 black card base with foam tape.

I couldn't resist creating a little tag with this set too. I took one of the other pig images from the Clearly Besotted Love Letters Stamp Set and stamped this on to white cardstock with black ink. He was coloured with Copic Markers and fussy cut out with scissors. I took the Reverse Confetti Dashed Line Tag Die and cut this from white cardstock twice (for the front and back). I took the front piece and cut an aperture from it using the Hero Arts Nesting Circle Infinity Dies.
I placed a piece of MFT Black & White Dots Paper Pad behind and then added the other tag on to the back to finish it off. The pig was added to the centre of the window with foam tape. I white heat embossed the sentiments from the Love Letters set on to black cardstock, cut in to strips and added to the tag with more foam tape. To finish off, I added a twine bow and a mini clothes pin.

  1. I love how you used this set for a postcard! Great idea and beautifully coloured xx
