Hello Everyone!

Welcome to My Craft Spot's Stamp Release Party Sneak Peek #3!

All week long, the My Craft Spot DT will be 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!

Today's stamp set is With Deepest Sympathy!

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


This stamp set is filled great sentiments to help create a something beautiful and special for someone who is going through a hard time. I decided to use the beautiful "Memories" sentiment from the NEW "With Deepest Sympathy" Stamp Set for my Sneak Peek Card today.

I based the card on the Deconstructed Sketch #57.

I stamped the sentiment onto the "Accent" Label from the Cricut Craft Room Basics cut at 2-1/2".

I used the My Craft Spot "Vanilla Bean" Crinkle Ribbon to make a double-loop bow and added some "Chocolate Truffle" Twinery Twine - also available at My Craft Spot. I inked the edges of a Yellow Rose and then centered it on the bow.

In the inside, I used another sentiment - "With Deepest Sympathy" - from the NEW "With Deepest Sympathy Stamp Set.

I hope you have enjoyed my project for My Craft Spot's Release Party Sneak Peek #3. To see more "Sneak Peeks" of the "With Deepest Sympathy" Stamp Set- available for purchase on Saturday, please visit My Craft Spot Blog. You don't want to miss it!
