Clearly Besotted Teasers | Prickly Plushies

Hello there and welcome to day three of the Clearly Besotted March 2020 Teasers. Not long to wait until the new release now, the new products release on Sunday.

Today I am using the new Prickly Plushies set. It is an adorable set consisting of lots of cacti and fun sentiments. I thought I would create a card and tag using the set, along with the new Says It All Again and Saying Stuff sentiment sets.
For the card, I took three of the cacti from the Clearly Besotted Prickly Plushies Stamp Set and stamped them on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. They were coloured using Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies section) and fussy cut out with scissors.
I took a panel of white cardstock and cut it using the largest of the dies from the WPlus9 Gift Card Layers Dies Set. I then placed a homemade circle stencil/mask over the top. The stencil is simply a circle die cut from a sheet of mylar. Using an ink blending brush, I blended on Broken China Distress Ink. I then took the sentiment from the Clearly Besotted Says It All Again Stamp Set and stamped it on to black cardstock using Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set.
It was cut in to a strip and added to the card with tape runner adhesive. The panel was added to a white A2 card base with tape runner and then the cacti added on top with foam tape. To finish off, I added white gel pen highlights to the cacti and a small gemstone to the girl cacti's flower.
I thought it would be fun to create a little tag too. It didn't quite go to plan as I couldn't find my speech bubble dies that I wanted to use, but thought I would share it anyway! I started off by stamping, colouring and cutting out another of the cacti images from the Clearly Besotted Prickly Plushies Stamp Set. I then cut a tag from the Clearly Besotted Tag Along Die Collection using Yupo Paper.
I applied a layer of Isopropyl Alcohol to the tag first, then added drops of Patina and Mermaid Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks. I spritzed the piece using an air spritzer tool and then splattered on some more Isopropyl Alcohol and set aside to dry. I die cut a Hero Arts Nesting Circle Infinity Die from vellum and then placed the cacti image on top with foam tape. I applied tape runner adhesive to the back and then added it to the tag.
I die cut another tag from white cardstock and stamped the sentiment from the Clearly Besotted Saying Stuff Stamp Set on to it using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. The two tags were adhered back to back with tape runner and then twine was added through the top. To finish off, I added black glaze pen to the cacti's eyes, as well as white gel pen highlights. I also added a few green enamel dots around the image.
There is a sentiment in the Prickly Plushies set that reads 'you can't touch this' and I thought it would be funny to have this in a speech bubble so that the cacti was saying it. As mentioned, I cannot find my speech bubble dies sadly, but once I find them, I will add it to the front of the tag!
