My Craft Spot Fall Stamp Release Party - Blog Hop!!

Today is the day of the My Craft Spot Fall Stamp Release Party blog hop!!  If you have not already been to My Craft Spot, I suggest you start there to begin the hop and see the full reveal of all the NEW stamp sets and metal dies.  Be sure to leave a comment at each blog along the way to increase your chances of winning one of the NEW stamp sets or metal die sets.  How fun!!


My children all returned to school on Tuesday and I made this card for my youngest son who just started grade six. The little boy at his desk is a Create a Friend cut with a Peachy Keen face.  


The sentiment next to him is a combination of "Have" from My Craft Spot's Cute Critters and "fun" from the NEW Jar Full of Fall stamp set. 


I cut the label at the top of my card using one of the NEW Ornate Labels metal dies.  The apple is from the NEW Jar Full of Fall stamp set and was stamped with a fun face from the same set.  Using the Tiny Doilies metal dies, I cut the green circle (the die cuts the middle out too!) and stamped it with the alphabet, a stamp that is part of the My Craft Spot Stamping All Around Fall set.  I added a strip of red cardstock behind the label and finished things off with two green enamel dots which came in a rainbow pack I received from my super talented and incredibly kind crafting friend Susie of Susie Craft Happy.  Thanks again, Susie!!


As I noted above, Kimberly has very generously donated a NEW product for each of the designers to give away during this hop.  I'm thrilled to be giving away the NEW Jar Basics set to one hopper who leaves a comment on this post. Woo hoo!  Please leave a comment by midnight Sunday as I will be announcing the winner on Monday.

To continue the hop, please head over to visit the wonderfully creative Heather at Houses Built of Cards.  Also, here's a list of the entire blog hop line up so you don't miss anything!!
