Happy Monday! It's not your typical Monday today, well not over at Clearly Besotted Stamps as today sees the launch of a new, fun monthly challenge! :D
The Clearly Besotted Challenge will run on every 10th of the month and will mean you get a chance to join in some fun, and maybe win yourself some CBS goodies too!
This month's challenge is an easy one. Anything goes! Yup, really, anything goes. Just use those CBS stamps and create something! And you're really not gonna want to miss out on this first challenge as one randomly selected peep will win five CBS stamp sets of their choice! You heard me right - F.I.V.E! :D
I've been itching to ink up Cute & Cuddly since it landed on my desk. Initially, I wanted to colour those cute animals, but I also wanted to show how you don't need to be a colouring expert to get the most from these stamps. And pairing this set up with Baby Love just seemed so right. I love the soft grey and pastel blue to celebrate a baby boy.
- I used a simple masking technique for this card. Whenever I get a set with images that I know I'll be using a masking technique with, the first thing I do is stamp them all on sticky-notes, trim them out, and keep them with the set. Then I can mask whenever I please with ease! :)
- This design could so easily be changed to suit a girl - just change the blue to pink. Or if you want to keep it gender neutral - I'm a real fan of crisp white or the traditional yellow.
- I used a cool border punch at the top of my ledger panel to create a note-book style focal point. If you punch before you stamp, you'll find it easy to keep the design evenly spaced across the top.
So, wanna win FIVE CBS stamp sets of your choice? To participate, your project must feature some CBS goodness on it somewhere - that's the only requirement. You've got until Sunday June 23rd to enter and if you'd like to be a guest designer then there's a chance for that too! So get those CBS stamps out, ink 'em up, and join us!
