Clearly Besotted Teasers | Hug In A Mug

Hello there and welcome to day three of the Clearly Besotted Teasers. Not long to go until the release. The sets release on Friday :) For my cards today, I am using the super cute Spilling Tea set. I know that coffee and tea sets are really popular in the crafting world, so I hope you like these adorable critters drinking their favourite beverages!

For both cards, I started off by taking A2 white card bases and scoring horizontal lines on the front using a scoring board and bone folder. I apologise that they are difficult to see in the photos, white texture is not easy to capture, but they do add an extra detail to clean and simple cards in real life! I then took the rounded tag die from the Clearly Besotted Tag Along Die Collection and die cut it twice from white cardstock.
Taking the Clearly Besotted Freshly Cut Grass Stencil, I placed the landscape side towards the bottom of the tag. I then blended Distress Inks on top. For the sloth, I used Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio inks. For the penguin, I used Seedless Preserves and Wilted Violet inks. I then splattered on some water droplets and set aside to dry.
I took the sloth and penguin images from the Clearly Besotted Spilling Tea 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 area) and then fussy cut out with scissors. The sentiments were stamped on to the tags and then the images added on with foam tape. I tied twine through the top of the tags and then they were added to the cards with tape runner. To finish off, I added white gel pen details to the images.

  1. Hi Michelle.
    These are adorable and on my wish list immediately. Can I ask what paper/card you use when stamping for cutting out as I always have difficulty with this. Its either too thick or too thin. Or perhaps its the scissors or me and I just need more practice.lol. Looking forward to seeing what you do with the pigs!
    Stay safe and keep crafting.

  2. Honestly- these are so gorgeous! I love the spotty cupped sloth and love how you’ve matched the cups with the backgrounds! x
