Hello Everyone!

Welcome to My Craft Spot's Stamp Release Party Sneak Peak #1!
All week long, the My Craft Spot DT will be featuring Sneak Peeks from ONE of 4 NEW Stamp Sets and SEVEN NEW Twine Colors! Then on Friday, August 26th, we will have being a Stamp Release Party Blog Hop! There will be TONS of prizes along the way, so you won't want to miss it!

My Sneak Peek today uses a phrase from the NEW "Candy Corn Kisses" Stamp Set.

I LOVED the phrase and had a whole different project in mind for it. But it not being fully Halloween Season, I had to resort to Plan B - a Candy Corn Shaped Card.

The Candy Corn(pg. 122) was cut from the Doodlecharms Cartridge in several different sizes. See, the problem is I don't think this image was very well planned out. The base of the card was cut from the shadow feature at 18" . Using Design Studio, I welded the two shadows together and hid the remaining pieces.  The actual Candy Corn was cut at 19-3/4". I noticed that the bigger you went in size with this image, the more unproportional it was, which caused some issues when layering it all together.

For my three-loop bow, I used the Pumpkin Spice Crinkled Ribbon from the Colors of Autumn Set. Centered it off with an "Orange Licorice" - ONE of 7 NEW colors - Baker's Twined button.

No card of mine would be complete without some dimension! I simply cut out an extra Candy Corn layer at 19-3/4" and used some orange foam to create my homemade dimensionals before placing my final patterned paper layer.

Now, what is a Stamp Release Party without some giveways?
