MCS Feb Release - Day 1

Good morning! Can you believe that it is time again to start sharing sneak peeks of another new release at My Craft Spot? As always - I continue to think each new release is better and better - and this is no exception! Today we are sharing sneak peeks of the new stamp set called Big Sentiments 2, which as you might have guessed, is a follow-up to the original Big Sentiments. I am a sucker for a good sentiment set - and this one is so much fun! Here is what I made:

I had cut that white card out the day before with my Cameo for a different project and never used it, and when I woke up the next morning, this idea popped into my head and had to be made! I did some watercoloring on a panel of watercolor paper, then attached the heart/sunbeam card right over the top. I traced some very faint pencil lines to follow with my watercolors so everything lined up how I wanted.

Once I attached that, I used some Wink of Stella on the yellow portions (which is always so hard to get a good picture of!) - then added glossy accents over just the heart portion.

Stamped my sentiment, then finished off with some of the clear sequins from the Snow Flurries sequin mix. The best part about this card? It is a perfect mail-able card! YAY!!!

Now the fun stuff! This week is a party - and a party is so much more fun when you have gifts, right? So hop on over to My Craft Spot and let Kimberly know what you think of the first day of sneak peeks for a chance to win this stamp set:

See you back here again tomorrow for more sneak peeks! Have a great day!!!
