Hello Everyone!

Welcome to My Craft Spot's Stamp Release Party Sneak Peek #5!

Today is the LAST day of Sneak Peeks for the My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party. All week long, the My Craft Spot DT has been featuring Sneak Peeks from ONE of 5 NEW Stamp Sets. Then on Saturday, July 14th, 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!

If you just happen to join me today and would like to join in on the celebration, you can view all my Sneak Peek Projects HERE.

Today's stamp set is New Arrival!

ALL stamp sets will be available for purchase on Saturday, July 14th!


This stamp set is PERFECT for Baby Shower Invitations or Announcement Cards! I used the "Its a Baby Shower" Sentiment from the NEW My Craft Spot "New Arrival" Stamp Set.

The sentiment inspired me to create an Umbrella Shaped Baby Shower Invitation. I used the umbrella from the Cricut Create A Critter Cartridge cut at 5-1/2".

I used the Bella Blvd Baby Boy - Heaven Sent Paper, I purchased  from the Paper Issues Etsy Store - remember to get your 20% off discount code on the right sidebar. The bright yellow and cloud pattern combination make it a PERFECT pick for a Neutral Themed Baby Shower Invitation.

I added some of the My Craft Spot "Vintage Vanilla" Crinkle Ribbon around the bottom edge of the umbrella.

The same "Vintage Vanilla" Crinkle Ribbon was used to create a double-loop bow. I added some "Buttercup" Twinery Twine - available at My Craft Spot - and centered it with a Yellow Rose from my stash and two smaller 3/8" Open Roses from Wild Orchid Crafts.

The Baby Shower Umbrella Invitation opens on the top portion only to reveal all the information needed for the Baby Shower. To have the Baby Shower Umbrella Invitation open like this, I simply cut off the "Handle" from the Shadow Feature after welding two of them together to create the shaped card.

The inside uses the "Date, Time, Place" Sentiments included in the NEW My Craft Spot "New Arrival" Stamp Set.

I hope you have enjoyed my LAST Sneak Peek project for My Craft Spot's Stamp Release Party. To see more "Sneak Peeks" of the "New Arrival" Stamp Set- available for purchase on Saturday, please visit the My Craft Spot Blog. You don't want to miss it!
