What better way to start a NEW crafting year than with some NEW Stamp Sets and Metal Dies?! 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 4 NEW Metal Dies! Then on Saturday, January 11th, 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, January 11th at the NEW My Craft Spot Store!!
Today's Set is Jar Full of Spring!
In addition, we will also be featuring the NEW Small Bow Metal Die, NEW Heart Border Die Set, and the NEW Fancy Edges Metal Dies on various of our projects throughout the week.
Design Team Member Robin has designed another Jar Full Stamp Set to coordinate with the My Craft Spot Jar Basics Stamp Set and My Craft Spot Jar Basics Metal Dies - already available for purchase at the My Craft Spot Store. This set is filled with WONDERFUL Valentine and Easter images and sentiments.
I fell in love with the ADORABLE "Valentine Heart Cookies" which reminded me of the Valentine Heart Shaped Cookies I do with my kids for teachers on Valentine. The "Valentine Heart Cookies" were individually stamped onto white cardstock and colored in with my PrismaColor Pencils. The "sprinkles" are part of the stamp's design, I used my white gel pen to turn them into white confetti sprinkles.
I opted not to use the My Craft Spot Jar Basics Stamp Set or Metal Dies with my SOON - TO - BE - RELEASED My Craft Spot "Jar Full of Spring" Stamp Set, instead I created a quick band for a Glassine Bag.
I embossed the glassine bag with my Sizzix Valentine Set 2 Embossing Folder and wrapped around a piece of paper from Echo Park Paper Love Story. Underneath the paper band, I tucked in the "Double Scalloped" Border - 1 of 8 Borders - from the SOON - TO - BE - RELEASED My Craft Spot "Fancy Edges" Metal Dies.
I tied some of My Craft Spot's "Scarlet Red" Crinkle Ribbon and added the "Small Tag" from the My Craft Spot Jar Basics Metal Dies stamped with the "February" Sentiment from the SOON - TO - BE - RELEASED My Craft Spot "Jar Full of Spring" Stamp Set. A white button tied with some Pink Jute String - available at the My Craft Spot Store - was layered on top of the "Small Tag".
To keep the glassine bag closed, I embellished a mini clothespin with the "Medium Heart" from the SOON - TO - BE - RELEASED My Craft Spot Heart Border Die Set layered with a small Pink Jute String Bow and rhinestone center. I also added a cut down "Fishtail Tag" from the My Craft Spot Ribbon Banners - Straight Metal Dies stamped with the "Be Mine" Sentiment from the SOON - TO - BE - RELEASED My Craft Spot "Jar Full of Spring" Stamp Set.
