I can’t believe Clearly Besotted Stamps is two years old! And what better way to celebrate than with a hop filled with awesome Clearly Besotted friends! I think it’s a testament to Stephanie‘s success that this hop has some of the best in the industry joining us today :D
So lets jump in with my card. I love the loopy elegance of this new Christmas Tree die! The tree is cut from some silver glitter card, accented with tiny pearls at the cross points of the loops and adhered to a Rounded Tag cut from Marshmallow card. To ground the tree I used a couple of pieces of my favourite washi – love the mint and black together with the silver. There are some sequins sewed over the washi with silver thread and a couple of gems added too. The sentiment is part of a longer one from the Most Wonderful set that I stamped on Slate card and white heat embossed before cutting out just the piece I wanted to nestle into the last loop of the tree. The tag is foam mounted on a patterned paper panel with a little silver glitter card to tie it in and then that in turn is foam mounted on a top folding, 4 bar, Marshmallow card base.
Stephanie is giving away a Clearly Besotted £20 (approx. $30 USD) e-giftcard to one comment left on each of the stops on the hop! The giveaway closes at 11.59pm UK time (6.59pm EST). There will also be a grand prize of a £100 Clearly Besotted e-giftcard, the winner will be picked randomly from all comments left on all blogs :D
