Clearly Besotted Blog Hop!

2nd Anniversary Banner
Hey everybody,
Welcome to Clearly Besotted Stamps Blog Hop. It is Clearly Besotted Stamps second anniversary. I am so honoured Stephanie asked me to be part of this fabulous blog hop. Congrats Stephanie on the second anniversary and thank you so much for asking me to be part of the blog hop.
You should have come from the talented and gorgeousย Jennifer McGuire‘s blog. If not don’t worry, I will give you theย list of participant later in the hop.
This post is filled with lots and lots of photos as I loved this month’s release that I got carried away and made a whole lot of cards. So make yourself a cup of coffee and browse through the post ๐Ÿ™‚
I have made two set of cards using the new Sentiment Christmas stamp set called Most Wonderful. First set of cards is vintage collection and the second set of cards using chalkboard technique.
Here is the vintage collection of cards.

Here is all of them together.
Vintage chalkboard christmas cards
I have diecut the rectangle panel from Pretty Pink Posh’s Stitched Duo 2 die set and Optimist pattern paper pad from Prima Marketing. I combined three stamps from the Most Wonderful Stamp set to stamp using white pigment ink and white heat emboss. I then used the leaves stamp from Little Pudding stamp set to stamp and white heat emboss. I have used sequins from Classic Christmas mix from Pretty Pink Posh to add berries and accent. I then layered this sentiment panel with pattern papers. I glued this on the card base matted with vintage pattern paper. I recall the vintage pattern paper from Bella Boulevard Christmas collection from last year. I followed the similar procedure with different pattern paper from the same collection to make a set of vintage collection Christmas cards.
My next set of Christmas cards uses Chalkboard technique. I have used the sentiment stamp from the new Most Wonderful stamp set.

For this card, I have used the new Little Pudding Stamp set.
