Happy Anniversary

Today is the day… all the new Clearly Besotted products are now available at Simon Says Stamp, and will be released at 10pm GMT tonight in the UK at Clearly Besotted.
So I have a final card to share with you, and it's made with the Mr and Mrs set. This set is truly elegant - lovely curly branches and leaves, and stylish mixed font sentiments.
I stamped everything on some Allison Kreft patterned paper, added some sequins, then stitched it to a card covered in some paper from Pebbles' Homemade pad

Such a simple card, but I love the look of crisp black stamping on patterned paper. The sequins are layered - black underneath and clear on top.

My favourite black inks are Simon Says Stamp's Premium Black Dye Ink and Hero Arts Black Dye Ink. I know lots of people like Versafine for sentiments etc, but I often struggle to get a clean impression with it. Both Simon's and Hero Arts' black inks work for me every time. I love them. Oh, and this card was stamped with Simon's ink
So that's it - my guest design time is over… boo hoo.
Thanks so much to Stephanie for having me. I've loved playing along with teaser time this month. Stephanie - you ROCK.
And be sure to check out the full release tonight at 10pm GMT over at Clearly Besotted.
Bye for now.
