My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party - Day Five


Ciao from Rome, Italy!  My husband and I are halfway through our European holiday - and today we will visit the Vatican.  All posts this week have been pre-scheduled.

It's Day Five of the My Craft Spot stamp release party!  Hasn't Kimberly done an amazing job with all her new sets?!  Today's set is such a sweet one!



I recently found Twinkle Toes at our local Walmart for only $10.  I couldn't believe it!  When I brought it home, my daughter looked at the cartridge and then at me, saying, "It is a good deal, Mum, but when will you ever use this?"  Of course, I had to show her that I would indeed use the cartridge and created this darling little bear with Twinkle Toes! The sweet little face is a Peachy Keen stamp.  I also embossed the ears and tummy with my Cuttlebug.  I added some stickles to the bear's bow and slippers - and created a little tulle skirt for her too!


The frame behind the bear is from Elegant Edges.  I embossed the top layer with my Cuttlebug.  The bear is popped for a bit of added dimension. 


The little banner is also from Twinkle Toes.  I used one of the new My Craft Spot stamps for the sentiment, curling it slightly on my stamp block in order to fit the shape of the little banner.  I LOVE polymer stamps for that!!  The little heart buttons are from the same eBay seller that I mentioned yesterday.  The tiny buttons are perfect for a baby card!  


The inside of my card was stamped with one of the new My Craft Spot sentiments as well.  The little border was created using a Stampin' Up border punch.


Please head over to My Craft Spot to see what the rest of the design team has created and to leave a comment for Kimberly for your chance to win today's prize... the Tiny Tags stamp set!!  And remember to come back for the My Craft Spot blog hop tomorrow - with a chance to win one of the NEW stamp sets at each stop along the way!!

So cute, Kate. And what a deal. I paid much more for my cart. I had to have it for my granddaughter who is a ballerina, but I'ved used it for other things, too.
