Happy New Year!


Teaser Time


So here I am with the last of my samples for the Clearly Besotted January release teasers.  I hope you’ve managed to get lots of inspiration from Stephanie and the design team – they are all so amazing!  If you’re itching to get your hands on some of the new products then your wait is almost over – the release goes live tonight (10pm BST) at Clearly Besotted, Simon Says Stamp and Ellen Hutson – woo hoo!

Today I am sharing a card using the new Bon Voyage stamp set which has three fabulous silhouette city skylines and some gorgeous fonts and sentiments.  I probably should’ve shared this card on day 1 with it being a Happy New Year card but hey ho!!  I’ve been at it again with the ink blending – getting quite addicted to it!  I also sprayed (perhaps a little heavy handedly) some Calico shine spray over the top of the blended ink.  The London skyline was stamped in black over the top and then I added some little fireworks from the Set The Scene stamp set.

  10. Refreshing choice of colours to the background. Stunning look!

  11. Love your ink blending Caryn, what a fabulous card. x

  12. Stunning card Caryn, I had the same sort of idea with the set for a New Year card but never made it! It wouldn’t have been as good as yours anyway. Your sky/background is beautiful! You are rocking the ink blending! xx
