Beautiful birch trees...

thinking of you
Hey!

Happy Wednesday, happy Guy Fawkes Day/Bonfire Night and happy Clearly Besotted Stamps release day! That's right, the November release is available to view now and for you to purchase from 10pm tonight (UK time)!

For my final project of the release I've inked up the new set, Birch Trees. This mini set is fabulous and so versatile for so many occasions. I'm thinking birthdays, Christmas an even sympathy cards using this super little set.

tips and tricks

  • I embossed the trees onto vellum to achieve a softer effect. You could always layer vellum over stamped trees to soften their appearance too. 
  • Avoid adhesive showing through the vellum by adding tiny dots of Glossy Accents to the reverse side of the embossed trees.
  • This design works for so many occasions - don't be limited by using only the sentiments from one stamp set. Experiment and use a range of sentiments! 

If you haven't checked out the full release, then what are you waiting for? Pop across to Stephanie's to check it out, make your shopping list and get a ton more inspiration from the rest of the Design Team.

Before I dash, let me wish those of you who are celebrating Bonfire Night a very happy and safe evening. Fingers crossed the weather holds out for the fireworks!

Thanks so much for sticking around with me over the past few days - I'm thankful for every visit and your company. Thank you! :)
