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!

My Craft Spot Christmas Release Party Day 1


Hi there! 

There is an exciting week ahead!

My Craft Spot is releasing FIVE new stamp sets this week! Not only that, Kimberly is opening an SVG shop, as well. 

The design team and a few guest designers will be sharing sneaks all week and on Saturday will be the Christmas Release Blog Hop.

Today we are sharing sneaks of My Craft Spot's Naughty or Nice stamp set.

Here is a fun project I made featuring this set.


I started with a cut file from My Scrap Chick called Mix & Match Tree Box Trio. I thought this Santa Tree Box was so fun and would match my sentiments perfectly.



I heat embossed my sentiments from My Craft Spot's Naughty or Nice stamp set in white embossing powder. I hand cut my tag to attach to the top of my box and added so new Solid Red Baker's Twine that is now available at My Craft Spot.

Make sure to head on over to My Craft Spot for more sneak peeks and for a chance to win a prize.

Every day this week Kimberly is giving away a gift certificate to My Craft Spot!


All you have to do is leave a comment!

I hope you enjoyed my sneak for today. Come back tomorrow for another!

Peachy Keen Stamps October Release!

Hi There! It's October Release Day at Peachy Keen Stamps!

Today Peachy Keen Stamps is releasing some fun new faces stamps and to celebrate we are having a  Facebook Hop!



For my project I used the fabulous new set PK-1433 Pumpkin Fun Face Parts.

I started with a pail from Target's dollar bin and painted it green. I then stamped my face parts with Stazon ink onto my pail and painted them in. Now I am not a great painter like our fabulous Peachy Queen but I thought it came out cute.

Of course, I filled my pail with some yummy treats and added a bow to finish it off.

For my next project I mad a super fast card featuring the new PK-1431 Squee Face Assortment.


This is not my best work but I decided to share it anyway. :P

My sentiment on my card is from PK-1340 Clearly Autumn Quart Jar Contents.

These new stamps are available for purchase today so head on over to Peachy Keen Stamps to purchase yours!


The Facebook Hop is going on right now and there are some awesome prizes to be won just for hopping along and leaving a comment.

You can get started by going to GiGi's Facebook Page!


Trendspotting with Peachy Keen Stamps!

Hi there! Today I am sharing a card on the Peachy Keen Stamps Blog.

As I perusing pictures for some inspiration for today's post I came upon a trend that I have seen lately and looks to be one of the trends for the upcoming holiday season.


I used these pictures as inspiration for my card today.


I started with a gold base and added my white background to it. To my background I add a sentiment from PK-1340 Clearly Autumn Quart Jar Contents.

I used the pine cone and branches that come with this same set and colored them with Copic marker and fussy cut them. Before adhering to the front of my card I added a little sparkle with my Pica pen. It's a little hard to see in the picture but I love the subtle sparkle it adds.

My Backer's Twine has a little gold thread that runs through it and I thought it went great with the design. I added a few gold sequins and called it finished.

I hope you found some inspiration on how you can add a little gold to your projects.

Please visit the Peachy Keen Stamps Blog for more inspiration!

Until next time,
Happy Stamping!

How About Some Pumpkin Juice!

Hi There! Today I am sharing a fun little project for the new challenge over at My Craft Spot.

The challenge this week is "Too Cute to Spook!"

I think this little pumpkin milk bottle falls right in line for the challenge.



I found this little milk bottle in Target's Dollar Spot and I knew right away what I was going to do with it. If I had saved one of the bottles from my daughter's coffee drinks I would not have bought these and just recycled her's. She now knows to save me a few! :)

To create my pumpkin juice I painted the outside of the bottle with my orange paint. I found some paint that is made for surfaces like glass and metal. I cut the pumpkins face out of vinyl and adhered it to the front of the bottle.

My lid was painted with green paint. After it dried, I wrapped some Peapod Baker's Twine around and added a tag. The tag was created with a die from My Craft Spot's Halloween Shapes dies and stamped with a sentiment from My Craft Spot's Halloween Potions stamp set.

I used 2 circle punches adhered together for the top of the lid and stamped them with a sentiment from My Craft Spot's Banner Sentiments - Fall set.

I hope you will take the time to play in the challenge over at My Craft Spot.

We would love to see your cute Halloween projects!

Head on over to My Craft Spot for more inspiration and all the challenge guidelines.

Frankly, You're Sweet!

Hi there!

Today I am sharing a quick and easy treat box that you can create for all the little goblins in your life!



This fun box is a cut file from My Scrap Chick called Frankenstein Treat Belly Box. I pretty much put him together as is except I created a layer for the front. I love the treat boxes that My Scrap Chick has to offer! There are so many to choose from. You can check some of them HERE.

I added some new Baker's Twine that will be available soon from My Craft Spot. I love me some Baker's Twine! Psst... Make sure you check out the clearance section in the Baker's Twine section for a sweet deal!  The button is from my stash. To finish off my treat box, I added a sentiment from My Craft Spot's Banner Sentiments - Fall set. I decided to stack the sentiment instead of stamping as is. There is so many fun products that can be found in the My Craft Spot Shop! Make sure you check it out!

I hope you enjoyed my project today! Let me know what you think. I'd love to hear from you!

Spooky Treats ~ My Craft Spot Challenge

Hi There!

It's time for a new Monday challenge over at My Craft Spot.

This week's challenge is Sweet Treats.

Here is what I made for the challenge:




To create this box, I started with the Sweet Nugget Matchboxes from My Scrap Chick. I used some older designer papers from My Mind's Eye that I have had in my stash for quite some time.

I added a sentiment from My Craft Spot's Banner Sentiments - Fall set and mimicked the spiders from my patterned card stock using the Halloween Shapes dies also from My Craft Spot. The eyes are some enamel dots from My Mind's Eye. I just used a permanent black marker for the center of the eyes.

If you would like to play along with us head on over to My Craft Spot to see all the guidelines for the challenge.

Thank you for joining me today!
