My Craft Spot Christmas Release Blog Hop

***Commenting for drawing now closed***

Hi There! After a week full of sneak peeks you are finally able to see the full My Craft Spot Christmas Release.

We are celebrating today with a Christmas Release Blog Hop!

You should have arrived here from Lisa's Blog. Wasn't here project amazing!

If you just happened upon my blog and would like to start from the beginning then head on over to the My Craft Spot Blog.

Today I am sharing a project using one of Kimberly's new SVG files and, of course, some of the new stamps are included.


For my project I used the Curvy Box SVG file. Kimberly made this so easy to put together. I enlarged it a bit, added a tag made from the Ornate Labels Die and stamped it with the new Christmas Chalkboard Sentiments. It was finished off with a bit of glitter around the window and a snowflake brad from my stash.

Here is a close up of my card.


My card was cut from a shape found on the Winter Woodland Cricut Cartridge. I glittered up the snowflake and popped it from the card. I added a sentiment from the new Tiny Tags Christmas Sentiments. The snowflakes are from the Christmas Chalkboard Sentiments. I cute my sentiment from the Tony Doilies Dies

Here's a look at the new stamps:


Naughty or Nice stamp set




O Holy Night stamp set



Merry & Bright stamp set


These are all the projects I made with the these wonderful stamps and SVGs so far:


The new stamps are available for purchase today in the My Craft Spot Store.

The SVG files can be found at SVG Cut Files!

Kimberly has so graciously given me a $10 gift certificate to give away to one lucky person that leaves a comment on this post.

I used the brand new Present Box svg along with a sentiment from My Craft Spot's Merry and Bright set. I stamped it on the new Shaker Ornament 3 svg that will be available for purchase on Saturday.

I love the vintage look of this paper. It from a very old My Mind's Eye paper stack that I have had for years!

My Craft Spot Christmas Release Party Day 4

Hi there! I am back with another My Craft Spot's Christmas Release sneak peek.

Today we are featuring sneak peeks of My Craft Spot's Christmas Chalkboard Sentiments.


For my card, I started with a cut file from My Scrap Chick called Poinsettia Christmas Card. It really is hard to mess this card up. The Poinsettia is so pretty.

I chose to cut out the flower in patterned paper from an old K&Company Christmas paper pad. The layers were inked and rolled to create some dimension.

My sentiment is from the new Christmas Chalkboard Sentiments. I added a few gems and the card was finished.

The new stamps and SVGs will be available for purchase on Saturday from the My Craft Spot Store.

Kimberly is giving away a $10 Gift Certificate each day of the release party to one lucky person who leaves a comment on the My Craft Spot Blog. So head on over for your chance to win and to see all the wonderful projects featuring today's stamps.

I'll be back tomorrow with one more sneak peek!

Hope to see you then!

My Craft Spot Christmas Release Party Day 3

Hi There! I am back with Day 3 of  My Craft Spot's sneak peek!

Today we are giving you a peek at MCS Tiny Tags Christmas stamp set.

I have a really cute project to share!


I first started with this cute Reindeer Belly Box from My Scrap Chick

I cut it too size and assembled it as is except that I didn't use the feet that is included in the file not did I use the eyes. Instead, I created a layer for the front and side of the box and I used Peachy Keen Stamps  PK-1202 The Moodies 2 1/4 inch faces for the reindeer's eyes. I colored them in with my white jelly roll pen and Copic markers. For his nose I added some Xmas Red Stickles.


For a fun touch I added a string of lights to his antlers. I added tags made from My Craft Spot's Tiny Tags dies and stamped them with My Craft Spot's Tiny Tags Christmas stamp set. My Craft Spot has some new twine colors that are now available for purchase. I used the new Solid Green, Red Twist, and Green Twist Baker's Twine.

All the new stamps and SVG's will be available for purchase on Saturday. 

Now be sure to head on over to the My Craft Spot blog to see more projects featuring this set and while you are there leave a comment to win a $10 Gift Certificate to the My Craft Spot Store!

I hope you enjoyed my project today! Come back tomorrow for Day 4 of our sneak peeks!

My Craft Spot Christmas Release Party Day 2

Hi there! I am back with another sneak peek of My Craft Spot's Christmas Release.

Today we are featuring the new stamp set called O Holy Night.


I love the way this card came out!

I started with with a blue background in which I cut my star using a file I found in the Silhouette store. This created a window.

Next I took a piece of yellow cardstock and cut it the same size of my blue background paper and filled in the shape of my star with some sequins from My Craft Spot's Trick or Treat sequin mix.

Before adhering my background to my yellow I used the Fancy Edges - Halloween dies to create some faux stitching. It is subtle but it is there! I still felt that my card needed something so I ran my blue cardstock through my Big Shot with the Sizzix Stars and Swirls embossing folder. It was just the right touch I was looking for!

I heat embossed my sentiment from the new O Holy Night stamp set to a piece of vellum. I tied some Solid Yellow Baker's Twine ( Now available at My Craft Spot) around my vellum and added a bow and button.

Kimberly is giving away a $10.00 gift certificate everyday this week so make sure to head on over to the My Craft Spot blog and leave a comment.

I hope you enjoyed my card today.

Come back tomorrow for another sneak peek. I cannot wait to show you what I've created!
