Hello Everyone!

Welcome to My Craft Spot's Spring Stamp Release Party Sneak Peek #5

All week long, the My Craft Spot DT has been featuring Sneak Peeks from ONE of 5 NEW Stamp Sets. Then on Saturday, March 31st, 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!

Today's stamp set is Butterfly Kisses!

ALL stamp sets will be available for purchase on Saturday, March 31st!

For my "Butterfly Kisses" Sneak Peek Project, I went with the "Like the Flower and the Bee great friends are we." sentiments.  The sentiment comes as one phrase, but to have it fit my card I split it into two phrases.

The "Butterfly Kisses" stamp set is FULL of great Spring Sentiments. I feel in love with this sentiment as soon as I set and knew exactly what I wanted to make.

The Tulip is from the Cricut Simply Charmed Cartridge and the Bee is from the Cricut Create-A-Critter Cartridge. I designed my card using the Cricut Craft Room and welded together the shadows of the Bee and Tulip.

I used a combination of the Peachy Keen "Critter Faces" for the Bee's Face.

I cut the wings from blue vellum I had in my stash.

The Tulip was stamped with the Peachy Keen "Everyday Faces".

I added a small double-looped bow made from the My Craft Spot "Vintage Vanilla" Crinkled Ribbon and topped it with the "Devine Valentine Twist" Devine Twine, available at My Craft Spot.

I designed the card to have several layers. So what else is new?

I stamped the remainder of the sentiment from the "Butterfly Kisses" Stamp Set to the inside of the card.

I hope you have enjoyed my project for My Craft Spot's Spring Release Party Sneak Peek #5. To see more "Sneak Peeks" of the "Butterfly Kisses" Stamp Set - available for purchase SATURDAY, please visit My Craft Spot Blog. You don't want to miss it!
