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.

Head over to the Clearly Besotted blog to check out what the Design Team has created! Don’t forget to check my Instagram feed for more inspiration!

This is so sweet, Francine! I love the scene you have created with the ink blended hills. Your masking is fantastic to remove the book (great idea!) and that sentiment is so fun! Love it! 💚

Oh that’s brilliant. The sentiment is so much fun and I love the rolling hills you’ve created to sit the fox on! Perfect x

Those hills look like velvet! And the subtle blue behind the sentiment is gorgeous. It's all so perfectly balanced. Stunning card Francine! Xx
