Clearly Besotted Stamps Guest Designer!

 

Logo

Good morning, friends!  I have a very special post today.  Stephanie Wincott contacted me in the summer to see if I would like to be a Guest Designer for her new stamp company, Clearly Besotted Stamps.  Now, I have been a fan of Stephanie’s ever since discovering her blog, Stamping & Sharing, on the Papertrey Ink Forum so I really wanted to be a part of her new adventure.  She sent me some stamps and “OH MY GOODNESS,” it was love at first stamp.  When I first get stamp sets, I lay them out on the counter and get a little “zen” going…hmmm, which stamp gets inky first?  This gorgeous flower image spoke to me the loudest and then I inked it up.

The line on this flower was so sharp and crisp and stamped perfectly the first time with my Rose Romance Stampin’ Up ink.  I’m in LOVE!  Then I wondered how the little butterflies would look on some of my Studio Calico wood veneer butterflies.  EEK!  Cool!  If you haven’t been over to the Clearly Besotted Store yet, head right over…AND ‘cause I know you Canadians want to know…it took FOUR days for these stamps to get to me from the UK!  Now THAT is something to cheer about!  I’m hoping to get a little more inky with more sets today…you may even see a Christmas card soon! ACK!  Thanks for stopping by and big thanks to Stephanie for letting me celebrate this wonderful adventure with her :)

How cool that you're a guest designer for her! That flower looks great, I love how you chose to have the lines in pink, but leave the center blank, looks awesome!

Oh, this card is just gorgeous, Maureen! I can see why you fell in love with this stamp set. I headed over to the Stephanie's shop and blog right away and also fell in love with the Signature Christmas set. I've also entered a comment for a chance to win the Happy Everything set. Keeping my fingers crossed...

You know I love flowers and butterflies so this card is speaking to me :) Love the white bow on the white, subtle but give it some punch. Congrats on the DT stint :) Look forward to seeing more of your creations with their stamps.
