Oh hooray for Friday. If your week has been anything like my last couple, you’ll be as excited as I am to see the weekend approaching! :)
I've somehow managed to squeeze in a teeny tiny amount of inky time and managed to whip up a few samples to give you sneak peek of what’s coming your way from Clearly Besotted Stamps in a few days time (Oct 6th).
You may have seen on the CBS DTs blogs a peek at a gorgeous set (with a coordinating die) called Delightful Doilies. Well, I took one look at the doily die and thought Christmas (what else at the moment?!). Yup, that’s not just a doily die, but a wreath die too of course!
I added a sentiment from the new set, Modern Christmas (designed by myself – eek!), in the centre of the wreath. It fits perfectly. Score!
And you know that I was too lazy to separate the larger and smaller doily dies when I ran them through my Cuttlebug with green felt, right? So it made sense to make a mini version of the same card. The mini ‘Joy!’ sentiment from Modern Christmas fits perfectly in the mini doily-wreath. Double score! :D
- Decorate your doily-wreath with a variety of embellishments! Buttons, sequins, gems etc…. It’s the perfect way to use up any embellishments you may have lying on your desk.
- Don’t feel like you have to stick with the traditional colour combos either. I'm just a sucker for red and green, always have been, always will be!
- To add an extra Christmas/holiday vibe to the cards I stamped CBS's Basic Stripes at a 45 degree.
Must dash, got my final day of madness at work to get through before I can look forward to World Card Making Day tomorrow! I hope you can stick around/visit here tomorrow for it as we’re also celebrating Clearly Besotted Stamps’ 1st birthday. Cue amazing prizes, peeps and projects; you don’t wanna miss it!
