Clearly Besotted's New Releases (& Giveaway!)

GIVEAWAY CLOSED: WINNER - LEIGH (TO THE FULL)

There are 12 new releases this month at Clearly Besotted Stamps & you can see them all below!  If you fancy a closer look, the wonderful Michelle at Card Grotto (DT Member) has made a little video which you can take a peek at here.




Here are a few cards I've made using Ahoy Matey....



Supplies: Stamps - Clearly Besotted 'Ahoy Matey' & 'Framed Sentiments' / Pattern Paper - Papertrey Ink Pattern Pack 'Classic Kraft' & 'Blueberry Sky' / Tools - Spellbinder Edgeabilities 'Classic Scallop'; Papertrey Ink Impression Plate 'Simple Stripes'; Stampin' Up! Embossing Folder 'Chevron' We R Memory Keepers 'Corner Chomper'

I am absolutely delighted that last months Guest Designer Maureen at Buttons & Bling has agreed to join us as a permanent DT member....what a fabulous asset she is!

I am also incredibly excited that the super talented Ted at Happily Ever Crafter (who is also a valued friend) will be Guest Designing for us this release!  I am a huge admirer of Ted's work & cannot wait to see what he comes up with :)

Before I go, what about a little giveway to celebrate the new release?  Just leave a comment here (open to everyone worldwide) & I will randomly select a winner who will receive a prize of  FOUR Clearly Besotted stamp sets of their choice!

Thanks for joining me today, I hope you all have a great week :) xxx
