Clearly Besotted Teasers | Bee Merry

Hello there, today kicks off the start of the Clearly Besotted November 2021 release teasers. Release day is 1st November 2021 at 8pm GMT. From now until then, we will be sharing teasers with you using the new release. For my card today, I am using the new Bee Merry set. Such a cute set filled with festive bees! 

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.

I started off by creating my background. I took a panel of white cardstock and placed the Clearly Besotted Cloudy Day Stencil on top. I then blended above using Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink and an ink blending brush. With the stencil still in place, I then placed over the Newton's Nook Snowfall Stencil to add in some snowflakes. I just added random ones in to the sky. As I moved down the panel I lightened the colour and brought in Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink

The panel was splattered with Sparkle Sheer Shimmer Spritz and set aside to dry. I took the bees from the Clearly Besotted Bee Merry Stamp Set and stamped them on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. They were coloured with Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area) and then fussy cut out with scissors. 

I adhered the background panel to an A2 white card base with thin foam tape, followed by the bees. I took the sentiment from the set and stamped it on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. It was cut in to a strip and added to the card with more thin foam tape. To finish off, I added black glaze pen to the bee's eyes.
