My Craft Spot New Release, Hop, and Giveaway!

{{{If you're looking for my Shop Pumpkin Spice Hop post, click HERE or scroll down to the last post}}}

Good morning - and welcome to the new release hop for My Craft Spot! All the new dies and stamps are available for purchase - and you can view them over at My Craft Spot now! I'm particularly fond of the new Jar Basics stamp set and coordinating metal dies - LOVE!!! If you have just hopped over from Kate you are in the right spot, otherwise make sure and head over to My Craft Spot to start at the beginning - there is a giveaway of a new stamp or die set on each blog along the way! 

I love some of the adorable images, and really wanted to play with them a bit. I ended up making a Fall card with very non-traditional colors:


I got my acorn image and it's cute face from this new set:


And my sentiment came from this set:


I started by stamping and fussy cutting out the acorns with some Basic Grey Pattern paper. The rectangle and circle were cut using Lil' Inker's stitched circle and rectangle dies. I attached the acorns with foam adhesive, and added some Stickles to their "hats" and some Glossy Accents to their eyes. 


I rolled up the paper piecing on the top of them just a bit to make them look a bit more 3 dimensional. You can see it a little better in this picture:


The background paper of the card is from a Crate Paper 6x6 paper pad, and I added some May Arts lace trim, some Natural Jute Twine from My Craft Spot, and some of the new sequins that My Craft Spot carries from the Toadally Green and Tickled Pink packs.


I'm so glad you stopped by today! If you made it all the way to here, it's time for the giveaway info! Here is the set Kimberly has provided for this stop on the hop - make sure and leave a comment before you go for a chance to win it!
