Hello Everyone!

Welcome to My Craft Spot's Winter Stamp Release Party Sneak Peak #1!

All week long, the My Craft Spot DT will be featuring Sneak Peeks from ONE of 5 NEW Stamp Sets and EIGHT NEW Twine Colors! Then on Saturday, November 5th, 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!

My Sneak Peek today uses a phrase from the NEW "Jingle All the Way" Stamp Set.

I LOVED the phrase and turned it into a SPRINKLED CHRISTMAS Gift Set.

As soon as I saw the sentiment I remembered a little gift set I had seen from a fellow Whimsie Doodles DT Member using a Salt and Pepper Shaker. I knew it would be the PERFECT play for this phrase from the "Jingle All the Way" Stamp Set.

I ran to my local Dollar Tree and purchased a set of pre-packaged glass Salt & Pepper Shakers. I created a small box holder out of a GORGEOUS Bo Bunny Blitzen paper(more info later in this post and tomorrow.  ;-)  ).  Created a bow using some My Craft Spots' NEW "Rusty Red" Seam Binding.

Tied a "To/From" Tag with "Peppermint" Bakers Twine - available at My Craft Spot. Like the Tag? Well, you'll have to come back tomorrow to find out where its from. ;)

Some "Peppermint" Bakers Twine was also tied around each individual Shaker. The shakers with filled with "LAUGHTER"(green M&M's) and "LOVE"(red M&M's).

The card was based on the Viva La Verve October Week 5 Sketch.

The are papers are from the Bo Bunny's Blitzen collection and Prima's North Country collection; just some of the papers included in the 'November' Artful Delight Kit. For more information on the kits contents, please come back tomorrow for a FULL post.

The scalloped oval(pg. 49) was cut from the Cricut Storybook Cartridge, the ovals(pg. 72) were cut from the Plantin SchoolBook Cartridge, and the sentiment frame is actually a tag(pg. 30) from the Winter Frolic Cartridge, as are vines underneath the rose. Unfortunately, I didn't write down what sizes I cut them at - Sorry.

The rose was sprinkled with some Pink Paislee "Coconut" Pixie Glitter to give it a more Christmas/Winter feel. It sits on top a bow made from "Rusty Red" Seam Binding and "Peppermint" Bakers Twine from the My Craft Spot Store.

To make this lovely sentiment from the "Jingle All the Way" Stamp Set stand out, I used my Homemade Dimensionals.

 The inside of the card is completed with a Simple Inside Layout.

I hope you  have enjoyed my project for My Craft Spot's Winter Release Party Sneak Peek #1. To see more "Sneak Peeks" of the "Jingle All the Way" Stamp Set - available for purchase on Saturday, November 5th, please visit My Craft Spot Blog. You don't want to miss it!
