Happy (or should that be, Hoppy?!) New Year! I hope that you've had a wonderful time over the festive season; I can't believe it's all over and now we're here ready to see what 2016 brings!
Well one thing that you can be sure of is that the start a new month means that it's time for another fantastic release of goodies from Clearly Besotted! We're kicking off the sneak peeks today of the January release and it's got something for everyone (I know, I say it every month but it's true!) The new release will be available to purchase from 10pm (GMT) on January 5th. :)
Today's punny card comes courtesy of the fabulous 'Jump for Joy' stamp set. My pun-loving heart skipped (or hopped!) a beat when I saw this wonderful mini set, and you just know that this little guy was destined for googly eyes, right?
- I blended Peacock Feather & Broken China Distress Ink onto the bottom of the white cardstock to represent water. To add a little more detail, I flicked water onto the ink to bleach it.
- I have a serious addiction to Glossy Accents and it's so fitting for the waxy lily pad and frog. I like to fussy-cut the images first, stick them onto cubes of blu-tac and then coat them in Glossy Accents. Then I can simply move them away from temptation to dry by holding the cubes.
- Confession: I mixed two sentiments from two different sets to create this customised sentiment. The word 'birthday' is actually from a set available in February (I didn't realise until I'd used it!) so you're getting a very early sneak peek of new set. Oops!
I really wanted to add some meaning to the 'hoppy' sentiment so I opted for an old-skool-stylee concertina-folded strip of card below the frog to add a wobbly dimension. So simple. And fun. :)
If you haven't already, then be sure to pop across to CB HQ (aka Stephanie!) to check out some more sneak peeks from the rest of the Design Team. I guarantee that it's the perfect way to get a serious mojo-boosting kick of inspiration. :)
I'll be back tomorrow with another sneak peek of the fabulous January release, I hope you can join me! Thank you so much for stopping by today!
