My Craft Spot Spring 2013 Stamp Release Party Sneak Peak #1 - Postage Hello

Hello Everyone!
Welcome to the My Craft Spot Spring 2013 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, April 27th, 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 Postage Stamps and Postage Stamp Metal Dies!
My Craft Spot's very own Design Team Member Robin from Robin's Creative Cottage has been HARD at work, right along side Kimberly designing another WONDERFUL set of Metals Dies and coordinating Stamp Set.
All of the NEW Stamp Sets and Metal Dies will available for purchase on Saturday, April 27th.
For my Sneak Peek Project today, I've created a quick card using the Postage Stamps and Postage Stamp Metal Dies.
I based the card on the Mojo Monday #287 Sketch.
I replaced the circle embellishment with two POSTAGE STAMPS cut out with the NEW My Craft Spot Postage Stamp Metal Dies. Then, I stamped each Postage Stamp with several different images from the NEW My Craft Spot "Postage Stamps" Stamp Set.
I used some Memento "Tuxedo Black" Ink to stamp the rectangle outline onto the POSTAGE STAMPS Die-Cuts and for the value worth.
My Craft Spot Stamps are soo EASY and WONDERFUL to work with. You can use them with any stamping technique - Dye Ink Pads, Chalk Inks, and even Markers - like I did here. The "Blue Flowers" Stamps were inked with some Chalk Ink and the "Paid Postage" Stamps were inked with some Marvy Le PlumeII Markers. Both stamping techniques gave me a clear and crisp result - just LOVE it!
I finished off the card with a Black Button tied with ONE of My Craft Spot's NEWEST Baker's Twine Colors - "Lemon Tart" and a Pearl Stick Pin.
I hope you have enjoyed my project for My Craft Spot's Spring 2013 Stamp Release Party Sneak Peek #1. To see more "Sneak Peeks" of the "Postage Stamp" Stamp Set and Postage Stamps Metal Dies - available for purchase on Saturday, please visit My Craft Spot Blog. You don't want to miss it!
