It’s Clearly Besotted sneak peek time and I’m kicking off the August release with this gorgeous English Roses set! A good stamp layering set really packs a punch with little effort. I think the trickiest part to them is deciding the colors and after that it is so easy to create stunning blooms and leaves. All supplies are linked at the end of this post.

You know I love my dye inks, but one of the characteristics I love about them is that the colors smooth out as they dry. I find though that this can make them tricky for getting really crisp stamp layering. Now before I fell in love with dye inks I had a bunch of pigment inks so I dug around in the depths of my draws (hoarding tendency!) to find those for this card. Only thing is they are so old (back when American Crafts used to make pigment inks etc) that I can’t link to them anymore. Does anyone have any recommendations for inks which work really well with stamp layering?
Having stamped the three layers for the flowers and leaves I trimmed them out and foam mounted them on a Stitched Square blended with Broken China and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks. To ground the roses I added them to a white Chisholm Wreath and sprinkled some peach sequins around. For the sentiment I white heat embossed one from the very versatile new Message Me set on Black card and then mounted the finished panel on a Fog card base.
You will be able to check out all the new sets at Clearly Besotted and Simon Says Stamp at 10pm UK time, 5pm EST on 5th August. In the meantime please call by and see Stephanie for more inspiration and links to the team :D
