I'm giving away the Jar Full of Spring stamp set, so I couldn't resist playing with the set again.
I'm also using Blue Sky crinkle ribbon and the new Fancy Edgers metal die, the grass shape.

I love the speckled eggs in this set, I hand cut the eggs leaving just a hint of a white edge, I like that look.  I also stamped hand hand cut out the cute chocolate bunny and tucked him in and egg that I cut in half using an old pair of zig-zag scissors. I tucked all the eggs into three layers of the grass.

The cloud shape is a metal die cut from My Favorite Things, the Die-namics Cloud Trio

Below is the inside of my card, I used the other half of the egg and added a chocolate bunny... uh-oh... someone got hungry and took a bite of the chocolate bunny. Really I used a tiny heart punch and punched a corner of his ear, looks like I took a bite huh?  Hee Hee.

Day 5 Big Sentiments -New release

Hello all my friends, I hope you have followed along this week for the fabulous Stamp Release Party for My Craft Spot, I know the design team and I have really enjoyed sharing many inspiring projects with you as today, day 5, the inspiration continues.
We are showing a sneak peek of the new Big Sentiments stamp set designed by Kimberly. 

I made three 3 1/2" square note cards for today's project using the new stamp set, I also included two of the new metal die sets Fancy Edgers, and the Small Bow.
The fancy edgers are so fun, there are 6 edges in that set, three various scallops, one grass shape, one notebook torn edge shape and the torn edge or deckle (which ever you would like to call it), this is the shape I used on my card below.
The Small Bow is such a fun die, I love how you can lay the tails horizontal or you can cut the tail in half and hang them down as I did in the photo below.
I wanted to add a simple look to the plain ivory background paper, so I headed to my sewing machine and removed the thread then sewed, I love the look of the simple poke holes with out thread. It was so fast and easy.

Thanks for joining me for day 5 of sneak peek, please join us tomorrow for the My Craft Spot blog hop where the design team will once again inspire you with more projects using one of the 5 new stamp sets and metal dies. Also each design team members (including myself) will be giving away one of the 5 stamp sets or metal dies, generously provided by Kimberly.
All 5 of the stamp sets including the 4 metal dies will be available for purchase tomorrow at My Craft Spot.
One last thing, remember to head over to My Craft Spot today to see the many other amazing projects made by Kimberly and her design team using the brand new Big Sentiments stamp set and leave a comment on Kimberly's blog (My Craft Spot) today for your chance to win the Feel Better Soon stamp set click -HERE for My Craft Spot.

Day 4 Stamping All Around Spring 2 & Small Bow Metal Die

I can hardly believe we are here at day 4 of the Stamp Release Party for My Craft Spot, I'm having so much fun with these stamps and dies, I hope you are enjoying the new stamps and dies and all the creative projects! 
Today we're sharing a sneak peek of the Stamping All Around Spring 2 stamp set that I had the privilege of designing. I'm also featuring one more of our metal dies, Small Bow, this is a 3 piece set and makes the cutest bow it measures approx. 2 3/4".
Remember all new stamp sets and metal dies will be available for purchase at My Craft Spot on Saturday.

If you are familiar with our Stamping All Around stamp sets, the Spring 2 is the 5th stamp set in that series, these stamp sets coordinate with the Tiny Doilies metal dies.

I hopped onto the Silhouette store and found this cute caldron pattern and thought it would make a great "Pot of Gold" I cut it out using my Silhouette Cameo, I love how it turned out.
I used Toadally Green crinkle ribbon around to pot, the added the new Small Bow metal die image. I hung my "you're my pot of gold" saying which was stamped on the images cut out using the Tiny Doilies metal dies.

Day 3 Banner Sentiments, Ribbon Banners Wavy & Heart Border Metal Dies

Hi everyone, welcome to day 3 of the Stamp Release Party for My Craft Spot!
Remember each day, there will be prizes at My Craft Spot, then on Saturday we'll have a design team Stamp Release Party Blog Hop with prizes at each blog along the way! 
Join us everyday this week!!

Today we're featuring a stamp set titled Banner Sentiments designed by Kimberly, this stamp set goes perfectly with two metal die sets that were release in October, the Ribbon Banners Straight and Ribbon Banner Arched metal die set. Today we are introducing the Ribbon Banners Wavy metal die, you will love adding these items to your collection of crafting supplies.  

Sentiments in this stamp set include Valentine's, Easter, Birthdays and everyday phrases.  I went with the "Happy Valentine's Day" phrase for my card. These clear stamps make it very easy to maneuver and shape the phrase onto your clear blocks so they fit perfectly onto the wavy banner.

I love this banner!  I'm also featuring another one of the new metal die sets, Heart Border, this set includes 9 images, the heart border that you see on my card, as well as three heart shapes (the same hearts as in the border), two keys and two locks and a small swirl design. 
I've used the heart border, with the three heart shapes (cut two of them twice) placed behind my heart border, one of the keys and one lock on the outside of my card.
Side view of my card, the banner lays flat so it can easily be placed inside an envelope.
Inside of my card I added another lock and key die cut, I cut out a small piece on the lock to make it look like it was "unlocked" hee hee. 
Thanks for visiting my blog today, there are more great projects made by Kimberly and the design team using the brand new Banner Sentiments stamp set and Ribbon Banner Wavy metal die, so head over to My Craft Spot, and while you're there remember to leave a comment on Kimberly's blog (My Craft Spot) today for your chance to win a few pack of fun Sequins. click -HERE for My Craft Spot.

Day 2 Jar Full of Spring, Fancy Edgers Metal Dies -New Release

I am loving this stamp release party and hope you are to! Today is day 2 of the party for My Craft Spot and we are giving you a sneak peek at another stamp set... Jar Full of Spring stamp set

This stamp set coordinates perfectly with the Jar Basics stamp set and metal dies that was released in September 2013.  You are going to love all the fun Valentine, Spring and Easter images in this stamp set. Once again Kimberly has given me the opportunity to design this set, thanks Kimberly!
We have 4 new metal dies for this release all will be randomly shown throughout the week. Small Bow, Heart Border and Fancy Edgers metal dies, I'm featuring the Fancy Edgers with today's project (the 4th metal die will be featured tomorrow).  

All of the new stamps and metal dies will be available to purchase on Saturday

The Jar Full of Spring stamp set features several images that are great to place inside of the jar from the Jar Basics stamp set, or the images can be stamped without the jar as well.
I used the egg image; there is a solid egg, as well as a speckled egg that can be stamped over the top of the solid egg as I have done on my card below.
This stamp set also has several phrases for Valentine's Day and Easter, or this phrase that I used can be used everyday "you're Eggcellent" I hand cut around the two eggs that I added to my card.
I stamped the jar on cream cardstock and jar lid on light blue patterned paper, cut them both out using the Jar Basic metal die... these dies are so easy to use, I have a video -HERE showing how it's done. I then colored the lid using my copic markers, C3 and C5.
I tied the jar with Pink Jute String the used my foam tape to pop the jar as well as the egg off the card.
As mentioned above I use the new Fancy Edger metal die for my card, you are going to love the variety of edges in this die set, there are 6 images, I used two on my card below. 
I also added Blue Sky crinkle ribbon on my card behind the jar.
I added the Fancy Edges to the inside of my card as well.

Thanks so much for visiting!

Today we are featuring the Chalkboard Sentiments stamp set that Kimberly has designed, I also used the oldie but goodie Tiny Banners metal die set as well as some Ivory jute string for my project.

The banners are popped up along the string line using pop dots.
I used kraft cardstock for the base of my card, and embossed using white embossing powder onto black cardstock. To give the white smudges look like you would see on a chalkboard I used white chalk.
After adhering the black cardstock I used a thin black sharpie for the corner lines on the kraft cardstock.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today, I hope you enjoyed my card.
