Clearly Besotted 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop...



I am SO excited to be joining in for the Clearly Besotted 2nd Anniversary Blog hop!  There is going to be lots of fun stuff to see for sure!  If you are following along on the hop, you should have made it here from my friend Amy's blog.   I kinda got all excited and went a little overboard and made up 3 projects for today!  :)

Here is my first card....

IMG_0456

I stamped the Clearly Besotted Basic Strips on a sheet of card stock in Provincial Gray.  the I layered it with a piece of white.  I stamped the daisies from the new set called Celebrating You, onto a piece of Vellum.  I added a sentiment from that same set to the front by heat embossing with white powder. Then I attached it all the front with a little piece of gray ribbon and a staple.  

IMG_0459

The next tag uses a sentiment from Most Wonderful.  

IMG_0464

It was super easy to mask off and stamp using the different colors.  I added this one to a little gift bag and what a super simple little gift!

IMG_0465

This last card uses the new wreath from Joy to the World.

IMG_0460

I stamped this one about 4 times in a circle to make the wreath.  I added in the little berry stamp too, for some color.  Last, I stamped in the larger berries and colored them with stickles.  I heat embossed the word joy in the center using Gold Embossing Powder.

There are prizes..... :)

One lucky winner will get a £20 (approx. $30 USD) e-giftcard to Clearly Besotted! For your chance, leave a comment by 11:59pm ESTon 10/7/14. There will also be a grand prize of a £100 Clearly Besotted e-giftcard, give to one of the commenters on the hop.
