Today it's time to begin sharing my Clearly Besotted Stamps teaser cards for January. This month's release is as cute, fun and pretty as ever, and my projects today feature my favourite set of the lot - Mini Bots.
It bugs me so much that all robot themed clothing and toys are aimed towards boys, as my daughters are obsessed with robots. And it's just the same with their other great loves: dinosaurs and trains. So, as it is my youngest's birthday coming up, I decided to make her a card that I could never find in the shops: a really girly, sparkly, interactive, robot card. :)
First up, I created a shaker pocket using Pebbles patterned paper and my Tinkerbell Shaker Selection. Next, I die cut a frame from white card, then used the older Clearly Besotted sets - Sentimental Type and Basic Alphabet - to create a custom message for my girl. I stamped my cute little robots on grey paper, then again on the same pink paper as the background, hand cut them out and paper pieced them together. I adhered them to the frame, then added a line of stitching to finish.
I adhered the frame to the card with foam tape.
And as I had all those robots on my desk, I decided to make her a little matching colouring book too. I simply stitched some sheets of paper inside a 4 x 4 folded card and stamped the pages with various images and messages from the set. They are so cute!!
I'll be back tomorrow with more peeks.
Bye for now.
