My kinda stitches

For You

It's that time again. What time? Clearly Besotted Stamps Teaser Time of course! Yup, five new stamp sets are due to be released (with coordinating dies of course!)

Today I'm giving you a sneaky peek of an adorable set, 'In Stitches: Christmas'. Cue cute stitched-style images and sentiments galore. This here is my kinda stitching! For my sneaky peek, I've whipped up a simple gift envelope that will fit a gift card in.

I couldn't resist inking up that sweet reindeer, (I've decided that it's *the* Rudolph BTW) and giving his nose a good dollop of red sparkles. :)

I also used the star from the set to decorate the mini envelope and embellished it with a sweet paperclip that keeps with the Christmas theme with its candy cane-style stripes (Thanks, Emma!). Oh, and bells. I just loooooove bells at Christmas time! I don't actually think I could fit many more embellishments on such a tiny envelope! Ha!

tips and tricks
  •  I layed out the die-cut envelope flat when stamping the background. This allows the stamped design to continue on the back of the envelope too.
  • Don't be afraid to embellish embellishments. This sweet paperclip looked fine alone, but I love the added fun and festive feel the twine and bells give it!
Be sure to check out the rest of the sneaky peeks on the CBS blog where you'll see links to the rest of the CBS designers who have been sharing products over the past few teaser time days. There's pleny more to see, trust me!

I'll be back tomorrow (I know, right? You get nothing for a week here, and then the next week you can't get rid of me!) with not one, not two, but three cards using one fabulous new set that is quickly becoming my favourite....!*wink*

oh, my, Duchess! This would be the perfect card to give my Rudolph mug! He is just too cute and delightful and kind of acting like Prancer a bit! Can't wait to bring out the reindeer mug lineup again this year :) ox
