Clearly Besotted – The Graduate.

Back again today with another little peek at the one of the new stamp sets being released at Clearly Besotted Stamps this month.  The release has been slightly delayed by a few days so all the new products will be available to purchase on 10th May at 10pm.

The set I’m highlighting today is called The Graduate and features two main text block images and some accessory images to compliment them.  I think you’re going to love it!  Here’s my card:

the graduate


I immediately thought of the chalkboard effect when I saw this set so I have heat embossed one of the text stamps in white and rubbed a bit of white pigment ink around it to add to the look.  I’ve also used the new Diagonal Stripes stamp set (such a brilliant set – have been itching to get my hands on this!).  Of course there is an accompanying die collection for The Graduate to make cutting out those images easy peasy.

Make sure you head on over to Steph’s blog and to the rest of the design team for more inspiration.
