Welcome to Day Two of the My Craft Spot stamp release party!! Today, we've got THREE new items to showcase: Pattern Blocks stamp set, Tiny Banners and Toppers metal dies AND Small Alphabet metal dies!! I am SO excited about today's release as I love the new stamps and dies - and have been having lots of fun with them already.
It will be my youngest son's last day of Grade 5 on Thursday so I created these cards for him to give his teachers. After creating my card base and mat, rounding the right corners, I used one of the 15 stamps from the the NEW Pattern Blocks stamp set to create the mesh border along the side, using my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line things up each time. I then created the banner by using a banner die and topper die from the NEW Tiny Banners and Toppers metal dies. I used different Pattern Blocks stamps on my cardstock to add some interest. Layered on each of the banner pennants are letters cut with the NEW Small Alphabet metal dies. I LOVE the way these cards turned out!
Each card also has a Create a Critter apple popped on the front. I stamped the leaves of each one with the NEW Pattern Blocks stamps as well. Under each apple is a sentiment from My Craft Spot's Thank You stamp set. I finished things off with a Die-namics Notebook Edge border and some Holly Green baker's twine from My Craft Spot.
