Clearly Besotted | June Release is 4 Days Away

Hello everyone! I’m so excited to join Clearly Besotted for the new June 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 June 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 Saturday June 5th at 8:00 am BST.


Here is my first inspiration card using critters and accessories from different new sets:

I created a scene on a top-folded card using red gingham paper at the top and the bottom of the front. The background was sponged using Distress inks and blending tools. The character on the left and the barrel are from the I Pick You stamp set. The bear on the right is from the I Pick You Additions stamp set, as well as the small strawberries. The small and SO ADORABLE bee (you’ll see it again in other inspiration cards lol) is from the Flower Friends set. The Hello sentiment is from the Colour My World set. 

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!


Thanks so much for visiting my blog today!
