Well it's hard to believe that it's March already. The weather certainly doesn't feel like spring as I've had to commute through snow this morning!
Nevertheless it's a new month which means it's time for a new release of goodies from Clearly Besotted! So cue a few days of sneaky peeks before the new release is available for you to purchase from 5th March 10pm (UK time!).
I was torn on what to play with first from the release, but I thought we could kick things off with a little celebrating. Celebrating with the new set, Sunburst, which features fabulous burst-style images for you to layer and create custom patterns with. Did I mention that it also contains two sentiments in an extremely versatile font? I love it!
I stamped my circles off the side of the card front to create layered semi-circle pattern. It kinda has a Cinqo de Mayo/Mexican vibe to it. Maybe it's those colorus! Anyways here's an example of extremely simple stamping from a crafter with limited time LOL!
- Swap the colours to create a different feel to the card. Soft pretty colours would work just as well for a more feminine feel.
- The tiny pattern stamped by the sentiment helps to balance the design – I just couldn't resist adding a gem too.
- The 'oomph' factor for this card is the bright-coloured card base. It really does make the stamped panel 'pop'!
- I stamped this pattern by marking the midpoint of the cardstock first and stamping around it to ensure the pattern was equal. You can always stamp more than you need in length then trim the ends for an easier option.
I'll be back tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by today!
