Clearly Besotted: Countdown Teaser, Day 5 - Release Day!

Hi Everyone,

Today is the Clearly Besotted April Release.  April New Products Coming on 1st April at 8pm (BST) UK Time.  What's on your list?

I loved working with these stamps so much!  I really enjoyed coloring up these cuties.  I used the sentiment form An Open Book and the images are from Bedtime Story.  I also think the images would be perfect for Halloween cards.

I used the Sunny Day Stencil as a soft background.  It is inked using Tattered Rose Distress Oxide ink, which is one of my all time favorite Distress Oxides.

I always like coloring ALL of the images in a new stamp set and piling them up on a card the best way I can.  I think of it as a challenge and I always like getting my monies worth, so I try to use every single stamp :)  I just paired the images as best I could and placed them around the book.  I used the sentiment "It's never too late to live happily ever after"  because I liked the uplifting message.

For the different fur colors I used the following copic markers
- YR0000, YR000, YR00, YR01, YR02
- E50, E51
- R00, R01

I truly enjoyed sharing the cards I made for this release.  Thank you so much Clearly Besotted for inviting me to play with these awesome stamps!  I loved seeing what the design team made, it is so fun to see everyones different take and style.  Please take a peek at their gorgeous creations:

Mama Elephant's #celebrating6years Anniversary Event

Happy Anniversary Mama Elephant!!
This release is super SPECTACULAR and I was so happy to work with the Cool Penguins stamp set!  The set comes with the most adorable penguins getting ready to wrap some holiday gifts.  I used the Basic Rectangles die set to create a window opening as these penguin friends are going to wrap their gifts together.  I also really adore the sentiment that comes with the stamp set.

I wanted to keep the coloring super simple on this card and used a few light colored Copic markers.  My favorite Copics are the ones that end in 0000 and 000 because I can achieve a light almost watercolor look.  
Here are the colors I used: B00, RV02, RV23, YR00, YR000

To finish off the card I wanted to add the star banner from the Sentiments from a Yeti stamp set, its one of my all time favorite stamps.  The set also comes with a banner that is oh so cute.  I love stars on a background and used the Lots of Stars Creative Cuts die.  I ink blended the background with Tattered Ros…

I Am Roses - Teresa Collins Christmas Home Layout

So I'm in LOVE with the new Teresa Collins Christmas Home paper....decided to get a jump start on the holidays and start my Christmas projects NOW!!!!  I had so much fun creating the Haunted Hallows layout that I decided to create another 12x12.  12x12's are challenging for me and I do not really do them, I decided to challenge myself and create a couple (...hope you follow my YouTube channel (scrapstress), because there are MORE to come!, hint hint) 

I also wanted to use some non traditional Christmas flowers to accent my layout.  I used Red, Black, White and Green flowers in different styles to match the colors in my layout. I LOVE the way this came out.  I love this time of year because Christmas and Halloween layouts are the best, the new paper coming out is so LUSCIOUS, I almost feel like doing these themey projects all year round...WHY wait!!!
