Clearly Besotted Teasers | Jungle Plushies

Hello there and welcome to day four of the Clearly Besotted February 2020 Release. The new sets release tomorrow. Today I am using the new Jungle Plushies set. As you can guess form the name, it is filed with adorable jungle critters plus fun sentiments. I am also using the new Picture It Jungle set too, perfect to use as a background/backdrop for all the critters.

For the card, I started off by taking a panel of white cardstock and stamping the hippo from the Clearly Besotted Jungle Plushies Stamp Set on to it using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then went old-skool and decided to cut an aperture around him with a craft knife and ruler. I cut the square window with the craft knife and then went around the hippo with scissors. This makes it so that the hippo remains part of the panel but if you didn't want to go to the effort, you could just cut a square in the panel with a die and add the hippo as a separate layer.

I then took another panel of white cardstock and stamped the Clearly Besotted Picture It Jungle Stamp Set on to it using more black ink (the stamp is bigger, I just used the right side of it). I coloured the background and the hippo using Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area). The background panel was added to the front of an A2 white card base and then the hippo panel added on top with foam tape.
I took the sentiment from the Clearly Besotted Jungle Plushies Stamp Set and stamped it on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied White Detail Embossing Powder and heat set. It was then cut in to a strip and added to the card with foam tape. To finish off, I added black glaze pen to the hippo's eyes.
I love the sloth in the set so much that I had to use him on a little tag too! I started off by stamping the sloth and two leaves from the Clearly Besotted Jungle Plushies Stamp Set on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then coloured them using Copic Markers and Polychromos Pencils (the colours I used are listed below the supplies area). I fussy cut them out and set them aside while I worked on the tag.
I took the rounded tag die from the Clearly Besotted Tag Along Die Collection and cut it from white cardstock and then a piece of paper from the Doodlebug Swiss Dot Rainbow Petite Prints Paper Pad. I cut the paper piece down and adhered it to the bottom of the tag, followed by a strip of black cardstock. I then stamped the sentiment using Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink. The leaves were added with tape runner and the sloth with foam tape. I added the hole reinforcer (cut from more patterned paper) and then added twine through the top and tied in a bow.
