Clealy Besotted..Christmas..


So whilst perusing a few blogs the other night I stumbled across Clearly Besotted Stamps challenge blog.

As luck would have it, my first set of CB stamps had just arrived (thanks Lemon) and I decided I would play along with their current challenge - Christmas. Here is Stephanie's (the owner) card -


The whole challenge was very inspiring as I have been wrestling with Christmas card ideas this year. Thanks to the challenge I decide that I would use a variety of my Christmas stash and not just stick with one design for all of my cards.

It makes it more fun for me! card for the challenge is fun and random and is the first for my personal Christmas cards. I only have one set of CH stamps - Apple of my eye! So I decided to use one of the apple and leaf stamps over a Pink Petticoat Christmas sentiment. The sentiments are lovely and so easy to use.

I added some bling, but kept it simple - I LOVE who can I bear to give it to :)



  1. Aww this is really sweet Claire… the lovely sentiment is fab with the apple stamp. I love the little pearls and gems… this is perfect CAS! :-)
    Hope you have a lovely weekend!
    Big hugs

  2. Hi Claire - so glad you found the challenge (and thank you so much for the very sweet comments on my blog too). I hope you can play along again in the future.

    Your card is just gorgeous - the perfect amount of white space. Love how you used a non-Christmas stamp set and totally pulled it off!!

    Good luck in the challenge,

  3. Lol Claire, I knew I'd seen your card before, I repinned it on Pinterest last it, the majority of my Christmas cards are usually based around Pink Petticoat sentiments and often the apple stamp too, hugs and happy weekend, Carole Z XX

  4. I love this CAS design. I am really in love with your sentiment and layout of the text. Nailed it!

  5. Really love how you've used the apple stamp for your card Claire, fabulous!
