My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party - Day 4


Welcome to Day 4 of the My Craft Spot stamp release party!  This week, we're showcasing FIVE new stamp sets and THREE new sets of metal dies - ending with the My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party blog hop - with prizes at EACH stop along the way!!

For those of you with some of the "Jar" line of products, you'll be delighted to know that My Craft Spot is releasing a NEW Jar Full of Flowers stamp set!  In fact, I had so much fun with this new set that I've got two projects to share today! 


To create my first card, I used three of the NEW Jar Full of Flowers stamps to create some patterned paper.  I then cut the paper into 1 inch squares.  I also created shadows for each of the squares using some black cardstock.  I layered these on a red mat which I adhered to my black card base.  I imported the stamp shapes into Silhouette and then created an offset, which I cut from white cardstock before stamping with red ink.


For the sentiment, I also used one of the NEW Jar Full of Flowers stamps.  I hand cut the banner and added it to the card.  I then popped the red flower on the top and added a double bow created with black jute string.


My second card is a quick and easy one - and I must admit that I completely lifted this idea from Stampin' Up.   I simply stamped the flowers, using the NEW Jar Full of Flowers stamps, in a variety of colours, leaving a blank space for my sentiment.  The sentiment is also from the NEW Jar Full of Flowers set.  I was so happy with how things turned out (and with how quick it was to make these cards) that I made three of them!  (Only two are pictured here.)

Please be sure to head over to My Craft Spot to see what the rest of the design team has created.  While you're there, be sure to leave a comment for Kimberly for your chance to win today's prize: Tiny Tags metal dies!
