Clearly Besotted Stamps - September Release Teaser Time - Day 5

Hi there

Today is the final teaser day for the September release of Clearly Besotted Stamps' new stamps and dies collections.  Don't forget to pop over to Stephanie's blog today, owner of Clearly Besotted Stamps, as she will be revealing the whole release in its full fantastic glory.  The eight new stamp sets and seven new die collections will be available to purchase from the online store from midnight tonight.

Today I am once again showcasing the 'Autumn Flowers' stamps and co-ordinating dies collection, I love it so much I made two more cards :)


I love this pine needle stamp, the detail is fantastic and it stamps beautifully.  I created the background frame by stamping and embossing white on white.  I must have taken about 20 photos to try to capture the effect but hopefully it comes across in the pics.  I then used the same stamp to create the main focal image before cutting and layering on a square frame of dark brown to echo the dark brown die cut pine cones.  A small die cut oval for the sentiment and some grosgrain ribbon completed the card.
Materials used:
  • Stamps and Dies: Clearly Besotted Stamps - Autumn Flowers; Spellbinders Nestabilities - Classic Ovals Large
  • Ink: VersaMark; Versa Color - Evergreen and Pine Cone
  • Embossing Powder: Stampin' Up - White
  • Cardstock and ribbon from stash

For this second card I used a snippet of dark brown cardstock and embossed using a woodgrain embossing folder.  I then created a stamped background panel which is popped up on 3D foam.  I stamped the sentiment and framed in a simple oval die cut, then finished off with a die cut oak leaf and acorns.   I love the stamped leaf images and how the effect that they are starting to break down looks so realistic.
Materials used:
  • Stamps and Dies: Clearly Besotted Stamps - Autumn Flowers; Spellbinders Nestabilities - Classic Ovals Large
  • Ink: Versa Color - Khaki, Bamboo, Paprika, Pine Cone and Bark
  • Embossing Folder: Craft Concepts - Woodgrain

Thanks so much for visiting today and I hope you've enjoyed my teaser cards.  And judging by Steph's previous releases there will be a high demand for these products so get yourself over to the online store from midnight tonight.  Happy shopping! :)

Take care
