Clearly Besotted Teasers | Ring Around Spring

Hello there and welcome to day two of the Clearly Besotted February 2021 Teasers. Today I am using the new Ring Around Spring Stamp Set. As with the others in the Ring Around series, this set features a beautiful wreath, along with cute critters that can be sitting on it or can be used separately. I just decided to use the wreath alone for my card today. 

I started off by stamping the wreath from the Clearly Besotted Ring Around Spring Stamp Set on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. It was coloured with Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area for reference) and then fussy cut out with scissors. 

I took a panel of white cardstock and blended Distress Inks on to it, fading to white at the bottom. I used Fossilized Amber and Squeezed Lemonade. I then splattered on Arteza White Gouache and set it aside to dry. Once dry, it was adhered flat to an A2 white card base with tape runner and the wreath added on top with foam tape. 

I took the sentiment from the same set and stamped it on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied WOW Bright White Embossing Powder and heat set. It was cut in to a strip and added to the card with more foam tape. To finish off, I added a few sequins (sadly now discontinued from Lucy's Cards).

It is very unlike me to use yellow for a background but I thought it worked well with the wreath. For more inspiration using the new sets, please head over to the Clearly Besotted Blog, Keren, Lisa and our wonderful guests Mindy and Rina. Thanks so much for stopping by today, I really appreciate it. I hope you have a fabulous day! 


  1. We have used the same set in the same way! And almost the same colours apart from the background! It's absolutely beautiful with the yellow fading out towards the bottom. And I love the yellow for a Spring card. Gorgeous! 💛 😍 😌

  2. Love that graduated colour! You and Lisa have been sharing colour combos!! Except yours is so different even though you’ve used similar colours. Gorgeous colouring! x

  3. Do love the graduated yellows, although very much like you I don't seem to use yellows on backgrounds much. The Easter wreath is such a cute idea. Off to view the rest of the teams x
