Clearly Besotted October Challenge – Christmas

ChallengeHello – I know I’m VERY late with this (been chasing my tail and then spent the whole weekend nursing a horrible head cold) but I’m finally here with my post for the Clearly Besotted October Challenge.

The theme is Christmas – yay – my favourite!  I used the brilliant new set Ornamental Style in some not-so-traditional Christmas colours (love this combo).

Halloween Spirit – a new Clearly Besotted Challenge!


Hello – today sees a new challenge over at the Clearly Besotted Stamps blog and this time the theme is Autumn/Halloween.  I’ve used the fabulous new Halloween Spirit stamp set to create these two little Halloween cards.

Spirit of Halloween 1

I used distress inks for the backgrounds – LOVE the effect you get with these inks – it’s such a therapeutic process too (I literally spend AGES just adding MORE and MORE ink!!!).  I masked off an area and then used a fine-liner pen to draw a sketchy line as a border.  All of the images are from the Halloween Spirit set and I finished off with a few touches of clear Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents.

As always there’s a Clearly Besotted store voucher up for grabs for one lucky winner so get crafting!!



Hello – RUSHING in with my card for the new Clearly Besotted Stamps monthly challenge!  I’ve been having some “issues” with my computer (hubby has a new one and has fiddled with this one which means I can’t get my photos to upload at the moment!!).  SO – the card I’m sharing ISN”T actually the card I made for the challenge!!  It’s one I made a while back but never got round to sharing – thank goodness for the “Anything Goes” theme this month!!!

gold thanks
