Smile and Celebrate!

Hello – I have a couple of cards to share today featuring two of the brand new stamp sets from Clearly Besotted.  The first is another of the gorgeous outline floral sets that Stephanie is JUST.SO.GOOD.AT!  I just love this one and this daffodil is just the perfect image for welcoming Spring.

just darling

My second card uses a set called Sunburst and it’s SO useful for building up a fabulous and funky pattern using all the cool elements in the set.  Don’t you love the colours of the inks I’ve chosen?  They’re the new Ranger dye ink pads and I think I may actually be in love!


I made good use of my MISTI again on both of these cards.  On the first I was able to get a super-deep impression of the sentiment by stamping twice eliminating the blotchy image of the first generation.  On the second card I used the MISTI to accurately place the different images to build up the sunburst images.  This tool is just so darn useful!!

Thanks for stopping by – make sure you pop to the see the rest of DT for lots more inspiration.
