Today's project was inspired by the JUST RELEASED My Craft Spot "Ornate Labels" Metal Dies. As soon as I saw them, I thought they would make GREAT labels for a Halloween Bottle - whether altered, upcycled or 3D Papercrafted.
 
 
I used the Toil and Trouble SVG Kit from SVG Cuts to cut out the PURE POISON BOTTLE using Bazzill Bling Cardstock and  papers from the My Mind's Eye Wicked Collection - I have no idea when this collection is from. I was unable to find it their site, but my local Michaels has the entire collection available, odd. If anyone knows, please let me know. - I cut it out at its originally size and measures about 5.25" tall without the Crystal Knob.
 
 
I'm actually suprised at how easy it was to put together - nothing went wrong, everything just fit together. I cut out the Lid's Liner from  My Mind's Eye  Patterned Paper and embossed two corner Spider Webs using the "Spider Web" Stamp from the JUST RELEASED My Craft Spot "Jar Full of Halloween" Stamp Set.
 
 
The green Crystal Handle is actually a Door Knob I found at the $1 section of my local Michaels. I tied some Black Tulle layered with Black Jute String - available at My Craft Spot - and centered with a small Pearl.
 
 
Around the Lid's rim, I added some Lace Ribbon which was distressed with some Black Ink to give it a worn and dirty look - but you can't really tell from these pictures. I also added some Silver Bow Wire I picked up from the Floral Department - I just LOVE the shiny bling-ish look it give the bottle.
 
 
As a finishing touch to the PURE POISON BOTTLE's Lid I added a glittered Black Spider from a Halloween Berry Pick I got from Michaels.
 
 
Some of My Craft Spot's "Smokey Black" Crinkle Ribbon around the bottle tied into a double bow layered with some more Bow Wire and an Echo Park Brad. I added two Maya Road Vintage Pearl Trinket Pins. To one of the pins I glued a small Banner made with the "Fishtail Banner" from the My Craft Spot "Tiny Banners & Toppers" Metal Dies stamped with the "Spells" Sentiment from JUST RELEASED My Craft Spot "Jar Full of Halloween" Stamp Set.
 
 
I found this amazing Skull Shaped Charm in the Jewlery Department at Michaels and knew it would make a great additional touch to my PURE POISON BOTTLE.
 
 
And lastly, I added the Main Focus of this project, the PURE POISON LABEL. I die cut the Small Label from the JUST RELEASED My Craft Spot Ornate Labels Metal Dies and stamped it with it's coordinating Ornate Label Stamp from the JUST RELEASED My Craft Spot "Ornate Labels" Stamp Set.  Here is a FUN trick using the NEW JUST RELEASED My Craft Spot Ornate Labels Metal Dies - the Ornate Label Dies ONLY cut out the portion you see stamped with its coordinating stamp set. To achieve a matted Ornate Lable look, like the one I have here, I simply traced the Metal Die on my desired Cardstock and gave it a quick fuzzy cut with my sharp scissors.
 
 
The PURE POISON BOTTLE opens up to reveal a nice space for a goodie bag or some other fun gift. Unfortunately, I focused on the embellishing and completely forgot to get something to fill it with.
 
 
I hope you have enjoyed my PURE POISON BOTTLE!
 
I'm your LAST stop on the My Craft Spot Fall 2013 Stamp Release Party BLOG HOP.

My Craft Spot's Fall 2013 Stamp Release Party Sneak Peek #2 - Halloween Magic Jar

Pin It Now!
 
Hello Everyone!

Welcome to the My Craft Spot FALL 2013 Stamp Release Party Sneak Peek #2!
 
All week long, the My Craft Spot DT will be featuring Sneak Peeks from ONE of 5 NEW Stamp Sets and 2 NEW Metal Dies! Then on Saturday, September 7th, 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, September 7th.

Today's Sets is A JAR FULL OF HALLOWEEN!
 
This set is FULL of great HALLOWEEN images and sentiments. Combine it with the NEW My Craft Spot "Jar Basics" Metal Dies and you have ENDLESS creative possibilities.
 
 
Today's card was inspired by last week's Seize the Sketch #2 - I flipped it -  and A CARD I found on Pinterest. I used paeprs from the Pebbles Inc Trick and Treat 6x6 Paper Pad.

 
I started by stamping the "Largest Jar" from the NEW My Craft Spot "Jar Basics" Stamp Set and cutting it out using the coordinating NEW My Craft Spot "Jar Basics" Metal Dies. I "Filled" the jar with Halloween Colored Stars and a Beautiful pair of Witch Shoes from the NEW My Craft Spot "A Jar Full of Halloween" Stamp Set. I randomly stamped each star image using different ink colors and colored them in with my PrismaColor Pencils.
 
 
I placed the "HALLOWEEN MAGIC JAR" at an angle so it would look like the "Magic" - Stars, Witch Shoes, Sequins - were spilling out of the jar. I used the My Craft Spot "Postage Stamps" Stamp Set for the dashed line slightly curved so it would give a bouncing effect. The Star die-cuts were made using the "Large Star Die" My Craft Spot "Small Alphabet" Metal Dies and stamped with the "Medium Star Stamp" from the NEW My Craft Spot "A Jar Full of Halloween" Stamp Set. I sprinkled some "Orange Creamsicle" and "Toadally Green" Sequins - available at My Craft Spot.
 
 
I tied some "Apple Green" Trendy Twine - available at My Craft Spot - around the "HALLOWEEN MAGIC JAR" and added a small tag from the NEW My Craft Spot "Jar Basics" Metal Dies stamped with the "Magic" Sentiment from the NEW My Craft Spot "A Jar Full of Halloween" Stamp Set.
 
 
The "Fishtail Banner" in the upper right corner is from the My Craft Spot "Tiny Banners & Toppers" Metal Dies stamped with the "Oct. 31" Sentiment from the My Craft Spot "Ghostly Greetings" Stampe Set.
 
 
I finished off the front of the card by tying some of My Craft Spot's "Smokey Black" Crinkle Ribbon into a double loop bow and layering it with some Plum Purple Trendy Twine -available at My Craft Spot - and a button.
 
 
To the inside I stamped it with "Happy Halloween" Sentiment and an ADORABLE Witch Hat from the My Craft Spot "A Jar Full of Halloween" Stamp Set.
 
 
I hope you have enjoyed my Sneak Peek 2 "HALLOWEEN MAGIC JAR" for the My Craft Spot Fall 2013 Stamp Release Party.

My Craft Spot Fall 2013 Stamp Release Party Sneak Peak #1.1 - Garden Fresh

Pin It Now!
 
Hello Everyone!

Welcome to the My Craft Spot Fall 2013 Stamp Release Party Sneak Peek #1.1!
I've created TWO Sneak Peeks for today, for Sneak Peek 1.2 scroll down or click HERE.
 
Happy Labor Day to everyone in the US & Canada! 
 
Not only are we celebrating Labor Day today, but it is also the FIRST day of My Craft Spot's Fall 2013 Stamp Release Party! 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 2 NEW Metal Dies! Then on Saturday, September 7th, 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, September 7th.

Today's Sets  is Jar Basics and Jar Basics Metal Dies!
 
Today's Sets are PERFECT for the upcoming Harvest Season, as well as for ANY occassion. My card today was inspired by the "Garden Fresh" Sentiment from the SOON - TO - BE - RELEASED "Jar Basics" Stamp Set. It immediately reminded me of some FRESH and HOMEGROWN veggies.
 
 
I created a little "Vegetable Garden Scene" by first stamping Small Jar from the SOON - TO - BE - RELEASED "Jar Basics" Stamp Set. When inking the jar I didn't ink up the rim portion of the stamp, so I could use the "Jar Lid" Stamp - included in the set - making it look sealed. I colored the "Jar Lid" with my PrismaColor Pencils.
 
 
I left the "Large Jar" open as they orginally come in the Stamp Set. The Jars were filled with some YUMMY Vegetables from the Garden Veggies and Tomato & Garlic SVG Files from Miss Kate Cuttables.
 
 
I then tied some "Vintage Cherry" Baker's Twine - available at My Craft Spot - around the Jars and added a small tag using the "Tag Die" from the SOON - TO - BE - RELEASED "Jar Basics" Metal Dies and stamped with the "Sweet" and "Goodies" Sentiments - included in the Jar Basics Stamp Set.
 
 
Some of My Craft Spot's "Spring Moss" Crinkle Ribbon was tied around the card and layered wtih some "Natural" Jute String - available at My Craft Spot. I used the My Craft Spot "Tiny Tags" Metal Dies to create the Tiny Tag and stamped it with the "Garden Fresh" Sentiment from the SOON - TO - BE - RELEASED "Jar Basics" Stamp Set.
 
 
I hope you have enjoyed my Sneak Peek 1.1 "Garden Fresh" Vegetable Card for the My Craft Spot Fall 2013 Stamp Release Party.

My Craft Spot Fall 2013 Stamp Release Party Sneak Peak #1.2 - Sunflower Jar

Pin It Now!
 
Hello Everyone!

Welcome to the My Craft Spot Fall 2013 Stamp Release Party Sneak Peek #1.2!
I've created TWO Sneak Peeks for today, for Sneak Peek 1.1 scroll down or click HERE.
Happy Labor Day to everyone in the US & Canada!
Not only are we celebrating Labor Day today, but it is also the FIRST day of My Craft Spot's Fall 2013 Stamp Release Party! 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 of the NEW Stamp Sets and Metal Dies will available for purchase on Saturday, September 7th.

Today's Sets is Jar Basics Stamp Set and Jar Basics Metal Dies!
 
I'm just having SOOO much fun with the NEW Jar Basics Stamp Set and Jar Basics Metal Dies that I had to create a SECOND card. Click HERE for my first Sneak Peek.
 
 
My Craft Spot's Jar Basics Metal Dies are so versatile you can fill them with anything you can think of. For this card, I fill the Jar with some Sunflowers from Miss Kate Cuttables. I added some Brown Flocking to the centers by passing the center pieces thru my Xyron 1.5" Create - A - Sticker Machine.
 
 
I cut out the "Large Jar" twice - one for the white background and one using some Clear Craft Plastic. I lightly inked the white background with some blue ink to make it look as if the Jar was filled with water - although you can't really tell from this picture.
 
 
I then stamped the Clear Craft Plastic with the "Large Jar" Stamp using my VersaMark ink and embossed it in white. This is actually the FIRST time I use this embossing technique and I think it turned out ok. But next time I will be more careful and make sure ALL extra embossing powder is removed before using my heat gun.
 
 
Wrapped around the Jar is some Kraft Trendy Twine - available at My Craft Spot. I added the small tag from the SOON - TO - BE - RELEASED "Jar Basics" Metal Dies and stamped it with the "Friend" Sentiment from the Jar Basics Stamp Set.
 
 
My Craft Spot's "Vanilla Bean" Crinkle Ribbon was tied around the card and layered with some "Brown" Jute String - available at My Craft Spot - centered with a button.
 
 
I based the card on this week's My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch #139.

 
 
I hope you have enjoyed my Sneak Peek 1.2 "Sunflower Jar" Card for the My Craft Spot Fall 2013 Stamp Release Party.
