My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party - Fabulous Shoes & Autumn Leaf




Hello Everyone!

Welcome to the My Craft Spot "Stamp Release Party" Blog Hop!

The My Craft Spot DT Members have been cooking up lots of fun new projects and ideas featuring the 4 NEW Stamps Sets and 7 NEW Twine Colors. Each Design Team Member will be featuring an original "Stamp Release Party" project.

If you've come from Jenny's Blog, then you're heading in the right direction. If you just happened to come across my blog and would like to play along with our STAMP RELEASE PARTY Blog Hop, start HERE at the My Craft Spot Blog.

Make sure to check out each DT member's blog for some awesome inspiration! Don't forget to leave comments along the way because there are TONS of prizes along the way!

I don't have ONE, but TWO Stamp Release Projects for you today!

The first is a FABULOUS Witch Shoe.


As soon as I saw the "Witch Shoes" sentiment from the "Candy Corn Kisses" Stamp Set, I thought about the Ellen Hutson Shoe Template I had seen before.


The shoe measures approx. 6" wide x 4" high.


I gathered some "Smokey Black" Crinkled Ribbon - available at My Craft Spot - around the edges of the shoe.


For the front of the shoe, I made a small paper rosette topped with some "Vintage Black" Baker's Twine from My Craft Spot and "bones" from the Create-A-Critter Cartridge.


The inside of the shoe was lined with some Spider patterned paper from the $1 Spot at Target.


I tied a small goodie bag with some "Vintage Black" Baker's Twine - availabe at My Craft Spot - and placed it inside the shoe.


Here is a quick look at the back.


On to Stamp Release Party Project #2.



For my second Stamp Release Party project, I used the "Autumn Leaf" sentiment from the "Happy Fall" Stamp Set.


I fell in love with it immediately and knew I had to make some colorful autumn leaves. The leaves are from the Cricut Doodlecharms Cartridge cut at 1-3/8" using Design Studio. The acorn is from the same cartridge, and was resized using DS.


I gathered some of the "Pumpkin Spice" Crinkled Ribbon and made two small bows out of the NEW "Blue Berry Blue" Baker's Twine available at My Craft Spot.


Here is a quick look at the inside of the card.



If your still with me - which I hope you are - your next stop is Ally's Blog! If you should happen to get lost along the way, you can find the Blog Hop list over at the My Craft Spot Blog.

  5. Thanks for the fun giveaway! I absolutely loved all of your projects... the flowers on your Fall card were perfect and the candy corn card was oh so sweet! My favorite though is definitely your witch shoe! I don't know what I like about it the best... the spider web lining, the bones, or the ribbon trim. I LOVE all of it. Can't wait to come back and see your second project!
    Having so much fun on the blog hop!

  24. Wow Wow Wow! We are new followers and were sent by Southern Belle. That shoe is fantastic, but I really love your design with the autumn card as well. My favorite thing is probably unexpected, but I love how you distressed the sentiment mat inside the card. I have never thought of doing that before and it just adds that extra unexpected element that makes perfect cards! Can't wait to see more things pop up in google reader! TFS! http://cricutcouple.blogspot.com
