Clearly Besotted Teasers | Hello Friend

Hello there and welcome to day three of the Clearly Besotted June 2023 Teasers. The new sets release on 1st June 2023, so not too long to wait now! My card today uses the new Sunny Day Play set. This set has lots of hippos having fun at the beach. As much as I love the hippos, I fell in love with the seagulls and wanted to make a feature of them! 

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

I started off by stamping the seagulls from the Clearly Besotted Sunny Day Play Stamp Set on to white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I coloured them using Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies list) before fussy cutting them out with scissors. 

I die cut a few Hero Arts Hexagon Infinity Dies from white cardstock - two for the card base and another two for the waves. Using a wave die (I used a retired set from MFT) I cut three layers of waves and then blended Tim Holtz Peacock Feathers Distress Ink on top. On another of the panels, I placed the Clearly Besotted Cloudy Days Stencil on top and blended Tim Holtz Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink on top to create the sky. 

I scored the other hexagon piece at the top to make a hinge. I added adhesive to it and adhered it to the cloud one to make a card base. The waves were adhered to the card with tape runner adhesive, making sure to leave a gap at the top to add the seagulls under the waves. The seagulls were adhered with thin foam tape. 

I stamped the sentiment from the Clearly Besotted Tiny Type Stamp Set on to black cardstock using Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. They were cut into strips and adhered to the card with more thin foam tape. To finish off, I added Copic Marker and white gel pen dots to the water.

Although I already had the design for the card in my head, it end up being similar to a few cards I saw online using an MFT set - Anna Lorenzetto, Amy Yang and Angelica Conrad. Aren't they amazing!

  1. Those waves totally make that card. I love the unique shape- I'd never have thought of putting that shape with a seaside theme but it's perfect! Love this card SOO much! x
