My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party - Blog Hop!


Welcome to the My Craft Spot stamp release party blog hop! Today is the day that Kimberly is revealing her FIVE new stamp sets and FOUR new sets of metal dies!!  Products are available for purchase today too.  Woo hoo!!  Be sure to check everything out over at My Craft Spot!


For my project today, I put together a little gift bag of chocolates.  I used a variety of tools to create my topper: my trimmer, my Creative Memories Oval Cutting System and a NEW My Craft Spot Fancy Edges border die.  Be sure to check out this new die set as there are a SIX different border dies!!  I also used the Fancy Edges border die to create the border at the bottom of my bag.


To dress up my topper, I stamped one of the NEW Banner Sentiments on a NEW Ribbon Banners - Wavy metal die cut.  I then used one of the NEW Heart Borders metal dies to cut out the heart from cowboy print paper.  (It's hard to read, but the cowboy's hat reads, "For my sweetie".)  The little heart on the bottom trim of my bag was also cut with one of the NEW Heart Borders metal dies.  I inked everything!


I used coordinating paper to individually wrap each of the mini chocolate bars inside my bag.  I also dressed up the back of the topper too - and added a couple of little hearts cut with the NEW Heart Borders metal dies.  I'm so happy with the way the bag turned out!



I'm so pleased that Kimberly is giving me a Ribbon Banners - Wavy metal die set to give away on my blog!!  For your chance to win, simply leave a comment on this post.  I will announce the winner on Monday.

Now it's time to head over to visit the newest My Craft Spot designer - the incredibly talented Tanya of Nonna's Craft Corner.  Haven't her projects been amazing this week?!  I'll also provide you with the entire blog hop list so you don't miss any chances to join in all the fun!


Kate me!
