July Release Countdown Teasers Day 1: Pop Up Plushies & Simply Said Birthday

27 June, 2019 9 comments Leave a comment

The countdown teasers for July start today with nine new stamp sets coming on the 1st of July.

We are super excited to have the fabulous Amy Tsuruta guest design for us this month.  Amy is on the Design Team of one of our favourite stamp companies, Reverse Confetti, and has a big following on instagram, we are very lucky to have her!

"I'm so excited to be guesting for Clearly Besotted Stamps!  I started ‘seriously’ crafting in 2003.  Although I started my blog in 2007, I didn’t start my IG account until April 2015. I was holding out because I didn’t think I could swing the time commitment. I still feel that way but try my best in keeping up with everything. I feel so fortunate to be a part of this awesome papercrafting community."

Amy has made some amazing cards for this release and we can't wait for you to see them!
