My Craft Spot Blog Hop!


It's the My Craft Spot Stamp and Metal Die Release Party Blog Hop!! Today, Kimberly is making the  FULL reveal of all her fabulous NEW products - and they are all available for purchase today too!  Yay! Be sure to hop along as there are prizes up for grabs at EACH stop along the way. Another yay!


For my project, I created a card for a friend and colleague who is retiring and used a sketch from Basic Grey for the layout. The NEW Time Clock stamp set was just the thing to create a card to mark this special occasion. When I first saw the sentiment used on this card, I was so excited for one of Debbie's courses is called Pursuit of Happiness. Too perfect!


The fancy little stamp next to my sentiment is one from the NEW Build a Birthday set. 


I also stamped a clock face using one of the NEW Time Clock stamps and cut it out with a die from the original Tiny Doilies metal dies set. The pretty black doily behind it is from the Tiny Doilies 2 metal dies set.  Between the clock face and black doily, I layered a ribbon banner which I cut using the Ribbon Banners - Straight metal dies.  (I did have to cut it in the middle to shorten it.)  I also added two pretty  flourishes cut from the Heart Border metal dies set.  The lovely rounded border was created using the original Fancy Edges metal die set.


The sentiment inside my card is computer-generated and then fancied up a bit with a little stamp design from the NEW Build a Birthday set.  As with the front of the card, I did some inking for a bit of a vintage look.  This card came together quite quickly and I'm so pleased with how it turned out.


I'm delighted to be giving away one of the NEW Build a Birthday stamp sets here at Small Bits of Paper.  (Thanks, Kimberly!) All you need to do is leave a comment on this post and I will announce the random winner on Monday.

Now it's time for you to hop on over to see the sweet, sparkly and wonderfully talented Karen at Kaleidoscopic Sparkles. And, if you missed something along the way, here's the full blog hop order for you:
Kate (me!)

Thanks so much for popping by!  Have a ridiculously amazing weekend!
