My Craft Spot Release Party - Day Five

Welcome to Day Five of the My Craft Spot stamp release party!!  It's the last day of sneak peeks - but not the last day of the party.  Tomorrow, we'll finish things off with a bang with the My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party Blog Hop - with prizes at EACH stop along the way! 

Out in blogland, I've seen lots of you using the little sentiments from My Craft Spot's Tiny Tags and Tiny Tags 2 stamp sets.  I'm sure you'll all be thrilled to learn that there is now a Tiny Tags 3!!  These wee sentiments are designed to fit perfectly with the My Craft Spot Tiny Tags metal dies.  They're also perfect for a little extra something on your creations!

We're also showcasing the NEW 4" Doily metal die today.  I gasped with excitement when I first saw the die!!  I LOVE it!  I barely had the die in my hands before I was whipping out my Cuttlebug to try it out!

For today's card, I started with the doily, using a pale blue cardstock which I inked with Tim Holtz Peacock Feathers distress ink.  (Thanks, Tammy from Beyond Measure!!) I then covered it with sparkly Mod Podge AND covered it with a generous helping of glitter!  Once dry, I layered a smaller doily from My Craft Spot's Tiny Doilies metal dies.  This smaller doily was stamped using the NEW My Craft Spot Pattern Blocks stamps.  I also traced a metal die from My Craft Spot's Lacy Banners set in order to create the circle inside the tiny doily.  The bird and branch are a Stampin' Up punch and were stamped with coordinating Stampin' Up stamps.  There's a bit of tulle layered behind the tiny doily as well.

Underneath the doily, I layered some My Craft Spot Vanilla Bean crinkle ribbon, some incredibly white lace which was "antiqued" with some Tim Holtz Antique Linen distress ink and a layer of tickets punched with the My Craft Spot Tickets metals dies.  The tickets were stamped with the NEW My Craft Spot Pattern Blocks stamps as well as an outline from the My Craft Spot Tickets stamp set.  The top layer of my border was created with some Ivory jute string, also available at My Craft Spot

The mat for my card was distressed using a paper distresser and some distress ink.  I also stitched around the outside of the mat.  I added a little blue crochet "nest" and three blue pearl "eggs" to go inside.  Finally, I finished things off with a little tag cut from the NEW My Craft Spot Tiny Banners and Toppers metals dies which had been stamped with a stamp from the NEW Pattern Blocks stamp set as well as a sentiment from the NEW Tiny Tags 3 set.

Please head over to My Craft Spot to check out the amazing projects created by the rest of the design team.  There's a fabulous assortment of sweet and fun to elegant and beautiful!  Plus, leave a comment there for Kimberly for your chance to win today's prize:  a set of Tiny Tags metal dies!! 

All items from this week's release will be available for purchase tomorrow!!

Come back tomorrow for the My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party Blog Hop - with prizes at EACH stop along the way!!

Kate, I'm fluttering back to leave you some extra bloggie love. I don't like to gush on blog hop projects (TOO much) in case you leave a snippet with the winner... just in case it's me. ;) But I wanted to tell you how many smiles you brought me this week! Your creations were all incredible and filled with such love and joy. And you know what? YOU decorate my spirit, too. :o) I am forever thankful to have crossed paths with you many moons ago. Always know you are in my heart and prayers. :o)

Hugs and blessings!
