A sweet Christmas...

sweet Christmas

Happy Monday and welcome back to day 2 of the sneak peeks of the Clearly Besotted Stamps November release! If you missed out on yesterday's sneak peek you can check it out here. :)

So today I'm moving from delicate, pretty snowdrops onto to fun, festive treats! I've whipped up a super-simple tag featuring the new set, Naughty or Nice?, and I've focused on the nice - well who can resist candy at Christmas, right? ;)
tips and tricks

  • The tag features an extremely simple form of masking. I simply stamped my sentiment first, popped a Post-it note across the centre and stamped the Christmas candy around it. 
  • The two sizes of Christmas candy stamps in the set make it easy to stamp patterns with. If you're using a dye-based ink as opposed to a chalk/pigment based ink, you can always lightly draw a grid in pencil to ensure the pattern spaces out evenly. Just don't try to erase over chalk/pigment ink as it has a tendency to smudge! 
  • If you can't be bothered with the masking technique, you can always stamp the candies all over the tag and trim the sentiment from a separate piece of cardstock to place over the top. 

Well that's all from me today but if you haven't already, please to pop across to Clearly Besotted HQ (aka Stephaine's) to check out even more sneaky peeks from the rest of the wonderful Design Team. It's an absolute pleasure to ink along with these talented ladies every month - so much fun, creativity and talent!

As always, thank you so very much for visiting today! I hope you can pop by tomorrow for yet more sneaky peeks - I dare say you'll have a 'whale' of a time if you visit...! ;)
