Hi everyone! Welcome back to Weekender with Wanda here on the Simon Says Stamp Blog! It’s the long Thanksgiving weekend and I hope you’ve been having a wonderful time with your friends and family! Are you still eating leftovers? We are at our house (gladly!) And, we’ve already shopped until we dropped. I love this time of year! Looking forward to the next few weeks as we get ready for Christmas to arrive.

Today’s post is a company spotlight feature on Clearly Besotted stamps. Their stamps are so clean and pretty and sweet. Beautiful images that bring a smile to your face. Today I want to talk about using all the stamps in the package….and also talk about seeing your stamps in a new way. I took some trees stamps and turned them sideways to make a greenery swag for part of my card. Take a look!

1 Clearly Besotted WWW card

I used two stamp sets to make this card and that is something I love to do – mix and match stamp sets. I found that the Tiny Trees Set and the Stitched Mittens Set made for a winning combination for a sweet Christmas card. I used one of the trees from the Tiny Trees set and turned it sideways and stamped it four times to make a greenery swag! Then I used the star and the tiny dot stamps to add bits of color around it. I love finding new ways to think of how to use my stamps.

I kept the color combination traditional red and green, but then popped it with a bit of icy winter blue on the mittens. I used pretty striped paper from Lawn Fawn to add just a bit of an accent on my red card base. The top layer of my card is cream cardstock instead of bright white.

I stamped my images and then cut them out using matching dies. Then I used foam tape to raise the pieces up off the card. I love the Lawn Fawn Cord as a string for the mittens! And, you’re probably learning how much I love Doodlebug Sprinkles Enamel Dots used as accents!
