Clearly Besotted

Featuring Clearly Besotted products

Just for you

Good morning everyone!

This week, I have the honour of being the Guest Designer over at one of my favourite challenges – the Color Throwdown Challenge.

The palette for this challenge is pale pink, brown, black and white, another fabulous combination, don’t you think?

I had an initial plan of a card for this combo and knew I wanted to play with Poppystamps’ Whittle Bird dies, but that’s the only thing that stayed the same! Once I stumbled across my old Simon Says Stamp Woodland rectangular frame, the card changed completely! I added another older SSS die – Fresh Daisies – and got to work. So amazing to see these dies were produced in 2013 and 2014! Time flies!

Anyway, I coloured the flowers and birds with Nuvo alcohol pens and added a bit of detail using a Prismacolor pencil before adhering the die cuts to my card base. I added a Clearly Besotted sentiment to complete my card.

There’s some amazing inspiration from the Color Throwdown DT over on the challenge blog – I do hope you can play along this week!

Thanks for stopping by!

More Easter Cuties

Hello everyone!

I just can’t get enough of the Simon Says Stamp Peeking Bunny and Peeking Chick dies!

Here’s another quick Easter card that I created using the dies with a Clearly Besotted sentiment stamp.

Thanks to Shari Carroll for the inspiration!

I’m entering this into the current Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge – die cutting.

Frangia Bouquet

Good morning friends!

Today I’m playing along with the March Memory Box challenge where the theme is ‘flower power’.

I pulled out one of my older dies – the Frangia Bouquet from 2013 which I coloured using blended distress inks.

I stencilled some glitter paste on my base card and adhered the die cut once the glitter was dry. The embossed sentiment is by Clearly Besotted.

Butterfly Bear

Hello!

Today I’m playing along with the February Penny Black & More challenge where the theme is ‘anything goes’ with the option of tags.

For my take, I pulled out another of my adorable bear stamps – ‘Butterfly Bear’ by Penny Black. After stamping and colouring the image, I cut it out using a Penny Black tag die and added a Clearly Besotted sentiment.

I wanted to add a little something to the background and was delighted to stumble across my old ‘Butterfly Edge’ stamp, also by Penny Black. Originally I was going to stamp this using some pink or purple ink but I kept it simple in the end and used Pumice Stone distress oxide. I’m glad I did, I really like the subtle image it created!

Magenta Flowers

Hello everyone!

I wanted to share my Day 15 colouring for the Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge using my 15th wood-mounted stamp! This one is by Magenta and I decided I would play along with the current Color Throwdown Challenge again as the dark pink/grey/black combo is so versatile!

Anyway, I coloured the images using my Twinkling H2Os and added a few Nuvo drops to the centre of the middle flower. To finish off my very CAS one-layer card, I added a Clearly Besotted sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!
