MCS - Christmas Release - Day 4

Good morning! Welcome to day 4 of the new release My Craft Spot - and this time it's all about Christmas! So many fun sets - today we are sharing sneak peeks of "Christmas Chalkboard Sentiments" stamp set.

Aside from using the chalkboard sets for the obvious chalkboard technique, I really love heat embossing them in white on vellum - and I love the color combo of white, kraft, and red for Christmas!


I started off by stamping each of the four tiny snowflakes included in this set several times on a panel of kraft cardstock, then heat embossed my sentiment on vellum and attached them with some machine stitching. I used some fun red polka dot paper from MME for my background, and cut some little doilies using Tiny Doilies 2 Metal Dies to tuck behind the front panel. Finished off with some snowflakes from the Snow Flurries sequin pack

MCS - Christmas Release - Day 3

Good morning! Welcome to day 3 of the new release My Craft Spot - and this time it's all about Christmas! So many fun sets - today we are sharing sneak peeks of "Tiny Tags - Christmas."

The first thing to catch my eye was this fun little star with the word "merry" under it - a perfect little rustic and fun image! Instead of stamping it on tags, I stamped it on a row of tickets cut with Tickets Metal Dies, then colored them in with my Copic markers.


I added some fun pattern paper from October Afternoon, a zig zag border cut with Fancy Edges 2 Metal Dies, and a wrap of some lovely May Arts ribbon that I think looks a little like burlap, but much softer with a more linen texture. Finished off with some Cherry Red Traditional Baker's Twine and a little red button.

Come What May Bunny Friends

Good afternoon! Just thought I would pop in with a card this afternoon, that I have actually had finished for a while, and just haven't sat down with time to blog it!






These were my first Mama Elephant goodies, and lets just say I am in love with them! SUPER darling! I used Femme Frames to cut out my front panels using some pattern paper by Crate Paper. I paper pieced the darling little bunnies from Honey Bunny, and die cut a banner from gray cardstock using Bold Banner, then stamped my sentiment from True Friend. Added a doily and a white cardstock circle, and a bit of foam adhesive between layers. Those bunnies just make me want to squeeze them!!!


Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful evening!

MCS - Christmas Release - Day 2

Good morning! Welcome to day 2 of the new release My Craft Spot - and this time it's all about Christmas! So many fun sets - today we are sharing sneak peeks of one of my favorites called "O Holy Night."

I still love watercolors so much - and these sentiments seemed perfect to pair up with a silhouette nativity scene, so I made a watercolor background for my card:


I started off stamping and heat embossing my sentiment, then created a background with watercolors - I went with non-traditional colors, since they reminded me of some of the beautiful Wyoming sunsets we have been enjoying and will miss very soon when we make our move! I cut the nativity scene with my Silhouette Cameo and glued it straight down. Also love that this is a one layer card!

MCS - Christmas Release - Day 1

Good morning! It's time for another release from My Craft Spot - and this time it's all about Christmas! So many fun sets - starting with today's called "Naughty or Nice." 

I used today's to make these fun little treats for Christmas - they are actually super yummy, although rather rich, more like a candy! You can find the recipe for my "coal" HERE - basically a recipe for Rice Crispy Treats, but substitute crushed Oreos for the Rice Crispy Cereal!


I actually packaged them up in clear bags that I have for holding my cards - they worked perfectly! I stamped each sentiment from this set on frames that I cut using Ornate Labels Metal Dies. I added some distress ink to the edges to soften them a little.


Next, I wrapped up my packages with some Cranberry Crinkle Ribbon, and added some Natural Jute String as well.

I was up on the Eyelet Outlet blog several days ago sharing a couple of cards using some of the adorable recently released brads from Eyelet Outlet, as well as some of the Heart Swirl Bling. Thought I would also share them here!

First up - these adorable Fawn Brads were love at first sight! I just adore the fact that they come facing both directions, and just had to make a card with them "kissing" each other! 


Supplies: 
Tim Holtz Distress Ink
My Favorite Things Dye Ink
May Arts Jute Twine


Next up, I used some the lovely Heart Swirls Bling - these are being sold in bulk packs, and make a great base for a simple and elegant card.

Newton's Nook Designs Holiday Release - Day 5

Good morning! I'm super excited this month to be guest designing for Newton's Nook Designs - and this week I have the privilege of joining in with the new release! I am in love with all the darling images - and have been super impressed with the great quality. They stamp crisp and perfect every time! And...it's release day! So now is a great time to go shopping! ;-)


For today's card, I got to play with the smaller new set called Christmas Delivery:


I decided to play a little more with was to use the images, other than just coloring them in, so I stamped it on dark gray cardstock from Simon Says Stamp and heat embossed it in white, then added the image heat embossed in red. The front panel was cut with a Lil' Inker's stitched die, and I added some wonky machine stitching across the top, also attaching some sequins with it. Tucked a doily and some October Afternoon pattern paper behind it to finish off!


Here is the entire stamp set - so many possibilities with this one:
