I have a cutie card for you today using Clearly Besotted Stamps super adorable Special Delivery set (available Wednesday 10pm GMT). I started this card by cutting some clouds from Post-it notes using the previously released Sky’s the Limit dies and then used these to mask a panel of Khaki card from Simon Says Stamp. I then gave a really heavy coating of Heidi Swapp color shine in white and splattered some diluted white acrylic paint too. You need to remove masks made from Post-it notes quickly so that any mist and paint doesn’t soak through :) This panel was now pretty drenched in misty, painty goodness, so I set it to one side while I stamped and coloured the stork before die cutting with the matching dies. Then I added the sweet baby blanket which I’d stamped, die cut and paper pieced :) At this point the panel was still pretty wet, so I dried it with my heat gun and as it was a bit warped I set it under a book to flatten out for a while. And then I had to walk away – very difficult for this impatient crafter LOL. When the panel was at least sort of flat, I stamped the sentiment and added the cutie elements with foam adhesive.
The new Clearly Besotted Stamps go live tomorrow but not until the evening UK time, so I will be back tomorrow morning with another peek to keep you going until the 10pm GMT release! In the meantime check by and see Stephanie for more inspiration.
