In The Spotlight: Happy Everything (& a chance to win!)

GIVEAWAY CLOSED: WINNER - KERRY ( A LOAD OF OLD PICKLE)

As the title would suggest, I am placing a spotlight on the Clearly Besotted Stamp Set 'Happy Everything'....


Let's start off with some paper piecing....

Additional Supplies: MFT Die-namincs 'Mini Scallop Edging Border'; Echo Park 6x6 Paper Pad 'Victoria Garden'

Keeping it black & white....


& finally, something a little bit bold & striking....

Additional Supplies: Papertrey Ink Impression Plate 'Woodgrain'

Not all about the colouring right? ;)  More inspiration for this stamp set can be found on Clearly Besotted's 'Happy Everything' Pinterest Board.

As a part of this regular feature, there will be a chance to win the 'In The Spotlight' stamp set, so if you fancy having a play with 'Happy Everything' then simply leave a comment & a winner will be randomly drawn on Monday.

In case you missed my earlier post, I have announced my Blog Candy winner below - have a fabulous weekend everyone :) x
