Delightful Day - Clearly Besotted Guest Design

IMG_4219





My heart skipped a beat when Stephanie Wincott of Clearly Besotted emailed me and asked me if I would like to be a Guest Designer for the April release! I didn't have to think twice, of course I would be thrilled.  Stephanie is a sweet as can be and her stamps are so fabulous!

This month's release is amazing and as usual so unique.  Today I have the pleasure of introducing Design a Tree! There are so many options for all seasons and all occasions.  I used some distress ink and a cloud die to make a subtle sky background.

I used the solid tree top as a flower for this next card and a bit of layered stamping.

Another take on the first card, different colours and placement of the panels. This was actually the first card I designed.

All of the stamps that are being introduced during the teasers will be available for sale on the Clearly Besotted site April 5th.

Come back tomorrow for some more teasers!

Hi Tracey

You did a good job as guest designer for Clearly Besotted. All three cards are very beautiful and I like them all. Great idea to use the tree top as flower.
