Clearly Besotted | Simply Cards & Papercraft 133

Now I know I'm probably very late to the party, but with my final set of my Masters exams spanning the past couple of months I haven't had any time for crafting and I have missed it dearly. However, I still picked up the issue of Simply Cards & Papercraft that had the free Clearly Besotted stamp set. As soon as I saw it, I simply knew I had to have it. 

So I made quite a few cards using this set (which you will also see in some upcoming posts) because I just found it so inspiring. It's got a nice mix of elements that all work so perfectly together.

I started off using the fuschia stamps. I stamped them onto white cardstock using Memento tuxedo black ink and then coloured them using distress markers. In would ordinarily use my spectrum noir pens but unfortunately I left them at home.

I then cut out some white panels using my new Mama Elephant Femme Frames and a panel of patterned paper with the same dies. I stamped the leafy vine using Avery Elle Lemon Grass pigment ink onto each white panel and then added the fushia flowers and buds using 3D foam pads. 

The sentiments were all from the same stamp set and stamped using Memento Tuxedo black ink once again. The panels were then all adhered together and then adhered onto an A6 Papermania kraft card blank, which I trimmed with my paper trimmer to make the panel fit nicely. 

The full stamp set:

I have noticed these stamps are included in some sets that you can currently purchase from the Clearly Besotted website. They are called Elegant Butterflies, Sweet Rose and Fabulous Fuchsias.
