My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party - Day One

Hello from Paris, France!  My husband and I are on a European tour so my posts are all pre-scheduled this week.  

Welcome to Day One of the My Craft Spot stamp release party!  I am so excited about this week - and especially about today's release.  Not only is Kimberly releasing some fabulous stamp sets this week, but she is also releasing a set of AMAZING dies to go with her Tiny Tags sentiments!!  I've had such fun creating little tags with the dies and stamps!

As those of you who have been following me for a while know, I like to make a card for my son's crossing guard at Christmas and end-of-year.  This year was no exception.  I used Go Canada for the sweet little beaver and Going Places and George and Basic Shapes for the stop sign.  I also used Going Places for the card base.

The little flowers are cut from a Martha Stewart punch and I also used an EK Success punch for the grass.  The white mat was embossed with a Crafts-Too folder. 

The little sentiment is from today's new stamp release - and it's been cut out with one of the new co-ordinating dies!!  The little red shadow is also from one of the new tag dies!  I added a little red eyelet to the tag and then used some Cherry Red baker's twine from My Craft Spot to finish things off with a bow.

*As this post is pre-scheduled, I am not sure which colours of baker's twine Kimberly is giving away.  This is just a sample of some of her fabulous product.

Head on over to My Craft Spot where there are LOTS of great projects showcasing today's release.  The full reveal will be made on Saturday - and all the new releases will be available for purchase then!  How exciting!!  And don't forget to leave a comment for Kimberly at My Craft Spot.  Each day, she'll be giving away fabulous prizes - and today, you have a chance to win some of her fabulous baker's twine!  And on Saturday, EACH of the design team members will be giving away one of the new releases - thanks to Kimberly!  Woo hoo!

Have a wonderful day - and I'll see you tomorrow for Day Two of the My Craft Spot stamp release party!

Like the whimsy crossing guard card.
Crossing Guards are important people.
The elementary school here in our neighborhood had a Summer Camp that ended this past Thurs and they had reduced speed limits posted & a crossing guard for this.
