Clearly Besotted | September Release is 4 Days Away

Hello everyone! I’m so excited to join Clearly Besotted for the new September 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 September 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 Thursday September 1st at 8:00 pm BST.


Here is my first inspiration card using Mischievous Plushies stamp set:


OMG, I’m SO IN LOVE with this castle. It’s beautiful and magical! I went for a birthday card as we don’t celebrate Halloween in Switzerland. Kids sometimes do but it’s absolutely not as in the USA, where streets are decorated. If you don’t remember, you even don’t know that it’s Halloween LOL. The sweet bats are from an older set called Balloon Bunch Halloween. They match perfectly with the castle. The white heat embossed sentiment is from the Simply Spellbound set. I colored the scene with Copic markers. The background was sponged with Distress inks and blending tools. I used a stencil for the clouds.

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!

Wow! This is amazing, Francine! I love the atmosphere you have created. Your colouring is stunning and I love that sky background. Beautiful colours! We don’t really celebrate Halloween that much here in the UK either, although it is becoming more popular recently. Mainly children dressing up to collect sweets from neighbours! 💜
