As soon as I saw the NEW My Craft Spot "Tasty Treats" Stamp Set, I fell in LOVE with it! It has such GREAT sentiments, but overall ONE of its sentiments has my FAVORITE punny word - BERRY! I LOVE coming up with "BERRY" ideas and the "You're BERRY Sweet!" Sentiment from the NEW My Craft Spot "Tasty Treats" Stamp Set is PERFECT for me.
 
 
I immediately remembered I had one more plastic BERRY container I picked up last year at my local Target and got to work. I filled the BERRY basket with STRAWBERRY scented Body Wash and Lotion, a Pink Shower Puff, a Hand Towel, Mani/Pedi Test Tube Kit, STRAWBERRY scented Voltive Candle and two 3D STRAWBERRIES.
 
 
Each item was embellished to fit the "You're BERRY Sweet" theme. I wrapped a piece of My Mind's Eye Fine and Dany Girl patterned paper around the Body Wash and Lotion, as well as the Hand Towel.
 
 
To the STRAWBERRY Voltive Candle Holder, I wrapped around some XOXO Washi Tape and a small strip of patterned paper.
 
 
Each item was them adorned with a Postage Stamp and STRAWBERRY. I cut out several strips of the My Craft Spot "Postage Stamp" Die and cut them into individual pieces. To them, I stamped the "Grid" Background from the NEW My Craft Spot "Pattern Blocks" Stamp Set. The STRAWBERRY was cut from the Cricut Simply Charmed Cartridge ran thru my Xryon 1.5" Machine and embellished with some Green Jute - available at My Craft Spot - and a small green rhinestone.
 
 
Inside the Test Tube, I added some Cotton Balls, Nail File, Nail Clipper, and Cuticle Stick. The Toe Spacers, Foot Sander and Nail Brush were tied together with some "Pink Lemonade" Trendy Twine - available at My Craft Spot.
 
 
Some of My Craft Spot's "Hot Pink" Crinkle Ribbon was tied around the Test Tube. I made a small tag with the My Craft Spot "Tiny Tags" Metal Dies and stamped it with the "Grid" Background from the NEW My Craft Spot "Pattern Blocks" Stamp Set. On top, I stamped the "Relax" Sentiment from the NEW My Craft Spot "Tiny Tags 3" Stamp Set and attached it to the Test Tube with some "Pink Lemonade" Trendy Twine - available at My Craft Spot.
 
 
I cut out two 3D STRAWBERRIES from the Cricut Spring Cottage Cartridge, filled them up with some STRAWBERRY candy and tied them closed with some "Honeydew" Trendy Twine - available at My Craft Spot.
 
 
I finished off the BERRY Basket with some My Craft Spot's "Hot Pink" Crinkle Ribbon and "Pink Lemonade" Trendy Twine centered with a Cricut STRAWBERRY  die cut.
 
 
I hope you have enjoyed my "You're BERRY Sweet" Gift Basket.
 
I'm your LAST stop on the My Craft Spot Summer 2013 Stamp Release Party BLOG HOP.
 
BUT WAIT!!

Today's Sets are TINY TAGS 3 and a 4" DOILY Metal Die!

ALL Stamp Sets and Metal Dies will be available for purchase on Saturday, June 29th!
 
~*~
 
Today's card was inspired by the BEAUTIFUL NEW 4" Doily Metal Die. As soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to make a wedding card with that beautiful doily. I ran the 4" Doily Metal Die thru my Cuttlebug Machine and it cut out so crisp and clear - no rips, tears, or jammed paper. I then gave it a quick splash of glimmer mist, but unfortunately you can't really tell in this picture.
 
 
I stamped the "Real Love Stroies never have endings." Sentiment from the My Craft Spot "Happily Ever After" Stamp Set onto a smaller circle from the Nestablities Lg. Circles which lined-up PERFECTLY inside the 4" Doily Metal Die.
 
 
I wrapped some of My Craft Spot's "Aqua Mist" Crinkle Ribbon around the card and used the My Craft Spot "Smokey Black" Crinkle Ribbon  to tie a double-loop bow.
 
 
Underneath the Aqua Roses and Ivory Jute - available at My Craft Spot - I tucked in a small tag cut out from the My Craft Spot "Tiny Tags" Metal Dies. To it I stamped the "Love" Sentiment from the NEW My Craft Spot "TINY TAGS 3" Stamp Set. This NEW "TINY TAGS 3" Stamp Set has over 40 WONDERFUL sentiments!! Its a MUST HAVE!
 
 
To finish off the front of the card, I added two small hearts made from the NEW My Craft Spot "Small Alphabet Dies" stamped with the NEW My Craft Spot "Pattern Blocks" Stamp Set - both sets were sneak peeked on Day #2.  
 
 
To the inside of the card, I added a Fishtail Tiny Banner from the  NEW My Craft Spot "Tiny Banners and Toppers" Metal Dies - sneak peeked on Day #2. The two intertwined hearts image is from the NEW My Craft Spot "Stampin Around Summer" Stamp Set - sneak peeked on Day #4.
 
 
The "Congratulations...." Sentiment is from the My Craft Spot "Happily Ever After" Stamp Set. I had the brillant idea of adding glitter to my little hearts, but of course didn't wait until they dried before stitching the TINY BANNER from the NEW My Craft Spot "Tiny Banners and Toppers" Metal Dies and it smudged.
Note to self: allow drying time.
 
 
I hope you have enjoyed my LAST Sneak Peek project for My Craft Spot's Summer 2013 Stamp Release Party. To see more "Sneak Peeks" of the "TINY TAGS 3" Stamp Set and 4" Doily Metal Die - available for purchase on Saturday, please visit the My Craft Spot Blog. You don't want to miss it!

My Craft Spot Summer 2013 Stamp Release Party Sneak Peak #1 - A Cup Full...

 
 
Hello Everyone!

Welcome to the My Craft Spot Summer 2013 Stamp Release Party Sneak Peek #1!

The day has FINALLY come! Kimberly and My Craft Spot's very own Design Team Member Robin from Robin's Creative Cottage have been HARD at work designing WONDERFUL Stamp Sets and Metal Dies.
 
All week long, the My Craft Spot DT will be featuring Sneak Peeks from ONE of 5 NEW Stamp Sets and 3 NEW Metal DiesThen on Saturday, June 29th, 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!
 
All of the NEW Stamp Sets and Metal Dies will available for purchase on Saturday, June 29th.

Today's stamp set is TASTY TREATS!
 
I'm absolutely LOVING this NEW Stamp Set. The sentiments are all so YUMMY that I had an EXTREMELY hard time deciding which one to use. I finally choose to use the "Sending you a CUP FULL of get well wishes" Sentiment.
 
 
I found a clear glass cup at my local Dollar Tree Store and knew it would be PERFECT to fill up with some "Get Well" remedies to go along with the sentiment from the NEW My Craft Spot "Tasty Treats" Stamp Set.
 
 
I started with a Chicken Noodle Soup packet and embellished it with a Chicken from the Cricut Animal Kingdom Cartridge on a scalloped circle from the My Craft Spot "Tiny Doilies" Metal Dies.
 
 
I filled up a clear Test Tube with some Acetaminophen Tablets for those days of body pain, fever and headaches. I tied some of My Craft Spot's "Pine Cone" Crinkle Ribbon around the Test Tube and attached a My Craft Spot "Tiny Doilies" Scalloped Circle with "Ivory Jute" - available at My Craft Spot. 
 
 
I embellished the Test Tube with a thermometer and Rx Pill Bottle cut from the Cricut Dr. CheckUp Cartridges. I stamped the "Rx" Sentiment from the My Craft Spot "Feel Better Soon" Stamp Set.
 
 
I tucked in a travel size pack of tissues and embellished it with the Tissue Box cut from the Cricut Dr. CheckUp Cartridge with a piece of real tissue tucked in.
 
 
A small bottle of Hand Sanitizer to help keep those horrible germs from spreading. To the Sanitizer's phrase I added some Dew Drops(Skittles) for some soapy bubbles.   
 
 
I also included some Lemon Tea to help soothe the sore throat after coughing all day and a little lip balm stick. I used my Xryon 1.5" Sticker Machine to adhere all of the Cricut Die-Cuts together - it makes adhering small cuts soo much easier.
 
 
I added them all to my clear glass cup and wrapped around some of My Craft Spot's "Pine Cone" Crinkled Ribbon and a button with "Ivory Jute" - available at My Craft Spot - for a "CUP FULL of get well wishes".
 
 
I hope you have enjoyed my "CUP FULL of get well wishes" project for the My Craft Spot Summer 2013 Stamp Release Party.
