Teasing - CBS Stylee! :)


Happy weekend - well, what's left of it anyway! It's a super-duper-happy weekend at Clearly Besotted Stamps as the teaser time of August's release is still in full flow. I'm here today to tease (in a nice way of course!) with a glimpse two sets to be released on August 5th (tomorrow!). 

Fancy florals (with coordinating dies might I add - *squeal*!) is a fabulous, versatile flower set that feature many different flowers and sweet button centres. I can totally see myself inking up the buttons of this set without the flowers too! And I'm telling you now, those dies are great with the stamp set and even without - I have a future project for that little tidbit later though....:)

Many Messages is a set that I know will live on my desk as it features so many sentiments, in so many fabulous styles that I'll probably hardly reach for another sentiment set again!

I think today's card is pretty self explanatory in what I've done. I simply stamped and die cut the sweet flower, leaves and button centre first and added a fun 'HELLO' sentiment from Many Messages. Simple.

tips and tricks
  • I've added a little more interest to the flower on my card by gently coaxing the petals towards me. It helps if you find something round, like a pen, to mould the petals around to avoid any big crease marks.
  • The centre of the flower is a button, but don't be deceived in thinking that's the sole purpose of a button stamp from a flower set. The button stamps can be used as sweet embellishments on their own.  
And as you should know by now, I'm a sucker for Glossy Accents so I smothered that sweet button/flower centre in the good stuff!
