I created a funny little scene. The toilet paper rolls!!!! Oh my! They are my favorites! Clearly Besotted always has amazing accessories among the tiny stamps. This makes the stamp sets even more special. The speech bubble is from the Speaking Out stamp set.

Clearly Besotted | May Release is 1 Day Away

Hello everyone! This month, I’m guesting for Clearly Besotted and I’m showcasing products from their newest May release. Only 1 day until the new Clearly Besotted release will be available. The new release will officially be available on Wednesday May 5th at 8:00 am BST.

 

Here is another inspiration card using the newest Book Smart stamp set:



 
 

I started by making a white top-folded card base. I then sponged grassy hills to the bottom of the card front using the Freshly Cut stencil and green Ditress inks. I also lightly blended the sky with Distress inks and blending tools. I stamped the fox (did a little masking to use the critter without the books), the bird and the tree trunk, colored and cut them. I adhered them to the sponged scene using foam pads for more dimension. To finish off my card, I stamped the sentiment from the Laugh Out Loud Friends set, cut around and adhered the label using foam pads as shown to the card front.

Hello everyone! This month, I’m guesting for Clearly Besotted and I’m showcasing products from their newest May release. Only 2 days until the new Clearly Besotted release will be available. The new release will officially be available on Wednesday May 5th at 8:00 am BST.

 

Here is another inspiration card using the newest Crafty Characters stamp set:



 
 

I started by doing a white top-folded card base. I created a rainbow of paint strokes over the front panel using one of my all-time favorite stencils called Brush Strokes stencil that I blended with Distress inks. The jars with the scissors and paint brushes are from the Shelve It stamp set. The crafty sentiment is from the Laugh Out Loud Crafting stamp set. I’m so in LOVE with all the Laugh Out Loud sentiment collection. Check them out HERE!

Clearly Besotted | May Release is 4 Days Away

Hello everyone! I’m so excited to join Clearly Besotted for the new May release countdown teasers as a guest this month again. The new stamps are AMAZING and as always, I had so much fun playing with them. I can’t wait to share my cards with you.

 

Let’s begin the May release countdown teasers! During the countdown, the Clearly Besotted Design Team and special guests are sharing inspirations showcasing the new collection. Only 4 days until the new Clearly Besotted release will be available. The new release will officially be available on Wednesday May 5th at 8:00 am BST.

 

Here is my first inspiration card using products from the newest Spelling Bee stamp set:

  


 

I started by making a white top-folded card base. I created a yellow and black sponged background using the FANTASTIC Brush Strokes stencil that I blended with Distress inks to the front of the card base. I splattered some black ink over the panel for more interest. Next, I stamped, colored and cut the adorable bee. I then stamped the sentiment (also from the Spelling Bee stamp set) and cut around. I adhered both, image and sentiment label, with foam pads to the card base as shown. To finish off my card, I added two enamel dots.
