{Two Many Cards Video Series} featuring Clearly Besotted + Giveaway!


Hi, everyone! Kalyn and I are back with our video series, Two Many Cards. If you missed our other videos in this series, check out the original post HERE, which explains how and why we're sharing our own unique take on the same products. 


Today, we're featuring the That's Genius and Bookworm stamp sets and coordinating dies from Clearly Besotted. These cats and dogs are so adorable, and I really love the clever and hilarious sentiments! These sets will definitely come in handy for friends and teachers.


I stamped several images from both sets and coloured them with Copic markers. All of the colours I used are listed in the supply links below.


I inset the bookshelf to create a shaker element and filled it with super sparkly crystal stars.


I used a woodgrain embossing folder to create texture on the bottom third of the second card, providing an anchor for my little scene.


I just love the expressions on these cute cats and dogs! The grey kitty is extremely curious about what the dog is reading. LOL


I just love the way this particular kitty looks nestled amongst all those books on the shelf, especially with its tail curled around her own book.


When colouring all these images, I stuck with primary colours and added a few extras when necessary. This makes it easy to mix and match, and keeps the elements from looking too cluttered.


When I use clean and simple layouts, I love it when the cardstock stands out and this white linen cardstock has been a long-time favourite.


Originally, I wanted to place the kitty right next to the dog, as if she were peeking while they were writing. I was going to pair them up with the "Good Luck in Your Exams" sentiment but I don't condone cheating. It would've been funny though! 😹


Clearly, the dog is not doing what the kitty wants him do be doing, which is read first, eat second and then sleep! I guess the book he's reading isn't very good. LOL
