My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party Blog Hop


Salve from Rome, Italy! My husband and I are heading to Venice later today as we continue our travels through Europe.  

Welcome to the My Craft Spot stamp release party blog hop!! Today, we reveal the FULL line of new stamp sets and... metal dies!!  Kimberly is releasing the dies to correspond with her Tiny Tags sentiments - including Tiny Tags 2 which is part of this release!!  The incredibly talented Robin from Robin's Creative Cottage helped design the new Tiny Tags and dies - and they're amazing!!  I'm blown away by each of the new sets and I'm sure you are too!  Keep reading and you'll see each set below.


For my project today, I made a card using stamps from the new With Deepest Sympathy set.  In fact, by leaving a comment below, you will be entered to win this set!! 

To create my card, I used a 1-inch square punch to create "windows" in kraft cardstock.  I ran the cardstock through my Cuttlebug.  The red border is cut from a Martha Stewart punch.  The little flowers are stamped and punched with supplies from Stampin' Up, with Liquid Pearls added to each.  The little butterfly is a punch and it was also run through the Cuttlebug.  I also punched some corners with an EK Success punch.  


The gorgeous sentiments are from My Craft Spot's new With Deepest Sympathy set.  I am so delighted with this set.  I've been looking for years for something like this - and now Kimberly has put something together that is far, far better than anything I have ever come across.

Here's the list of the entire blog hop.  Remember, you can win one of the new My Craft Spot stamp sets at each and every stop along the way!!  If you are hopping in order, your next stop is a visit to see the incredibly sweet and marvellously creative Amber at My 3 E Scrapbooking.
*Remember to leave a comment below for your chance to win the With Deepest Sympathy set.  The rest of the design team will be announcing winners on July 16 but as I am still on holiday, I will announce the winner from my blog on July 23.

*The new stamp sets will be available for purchase on my blog starting Saturday during the blog hop.  You may post pictures of the stamp sets on your blog on Saturday.
  
Here are the new stamp sets!
All sets are available for purchase starting TODAY!

This set was designed by our very own Robin!  

Robin also designed a set of metal dies to go with both the Tiny Tags 1 and the new Tiny Tags 2 stamp sets!

Beautiful card!

Your card is quite elegant! The Deepest Sympathy set would come in handy, unfortunately, because we have had and will have several passings lately. This set would make it easeier to make a card saying the right thing.
