Happy 1st Birthday Clearly Besotted Stamps!




Hello and welcome to my stop on the Clearly Besotted Stamps 1st Birthday Blog Hop!!

It's no secret that I have become a big fan of Clearly Besotted Stamps and have added quite a few stamp sets and dies to my collection. They are just awesome, both in quality and design and I enjoy creating with them.

I have had the chance to get to know Stephanie (she owns Clearly Besotted Stamps) over the past couple of months and she is one of those people that you just immediately like love! She is super sweet and is so easy to get along with. I look forward to getting to know her better and I can't wait to see what's ahead for this stamp company!

I decided to use another new stamp and die set called Tasty Treats (part of the newest release) paired with some older stamps to create a birthday card to celebrate!!

Happy Birthday


Birthday

Birthday-2


Supplies:





I created the fun, textured cupcake on this card by using embossing paste on the top part rather than stamping it. It turned out really great and actually looks like a real cupcake! ;)

To see how I created the card, you can watch the video below:


 
 
GIVEAWAY!!!

What's a birthday without presents, right?!?
Stephanie has provided a stamp set for each designer on the hop to give away. I have decided to do my giveaway for the Tasty Treats stamp set, since it was the focal part of my card today. ;)
Just leave a comment on this post by October 8/13 and I'll draw a random winner! ;)

In addition to my giveaway for Tasty Treats, there will also be a grand prize giveaway from all comments left on all blogs in the hop. That winner will receive a $75 Simon Says Stamp gift certificate and a £100 Clearly Besotted Stamps gift certificate!! Yay!! ;)

Thanks so much for hopping along today and celebrating Clearly Besotted Stamps 1st birthday with us!
I am the last stop in the hop, but if you want to start again, or if you've encountered a broken link, you can head back to the start of the hop at the Clearly Besotted Stamps blog.

Steph ;)
