Welcome to My Craft Spot's Spring Stamp Release Party Sneak Peek #1!
The day has FINALLY come! All week long, the My Craft Spot DT will be featuring Sneak Peeks from ONE of 5 NEW Stamp Sets. Then on Saturday, March 31st, we will have a Stamp Release Party Blog Hop! There will be TONS of prizes along the way, so you won't want to miss it!
Today's stamp set is Happy Birthday!
ALL stamp sets will be available for purchase on Saturday, March 31st!
For my Sneak Peek Project, I went with the "Happy Birthday to you!" sentiment.
I recently celebrated my birthday and it inspired me to make a Birthday Cake Shaped Card based on my favorite cake - Chocolate Strawberry Cake. Although it didn't quite turn out like that.
The cake is from the Cricut Simply Charmed Cartridge cut at 5.5". I used several pieces of My Mind's Eye patterned papers, all purchased from Paper Issues(see right sidebar for a discount).
I added a triple-loop bow made from My Craft Spot's "Vanilla Bean" Crinkled Ribbon. Topped it with some "Blossom" Baker's Twine, available at My Craft Spot, and a two-toned flower.
Each layer of the card is separated by my homemade dimensionals - I didn't forget this time.
Again, I kept the inside pretty simple. Give it a quick outline and stamped it with another sentiment from the My Craft Spot "Happy Birthday".
I hope you have enjoyed my project for My Craft Spot's Spring Release Party Sneak Peek #2. To see more "Sneak Peeks" of the "Happy Birthday" Stamp Set - available for purchase Saturday, March 31st, please visit My Craft Spot Blog. You don't want to miss it!
