Poinsettia Gift Set with My Craft Spot and My Scrap Chick

Hi there! Today I am sharing this beautiful gift set over on the My Craft Spot Blog.

I made 3 of these sets for my niece. She wanted some pretty packaging for her teachers' gifts.

I used some cut files from My Scrap Chick called Poinsettia Christmas Card and Sunflower Greetings and combined the two. I used stamps from My Craft Spot to add the perfect touch.

My Tag was stamped with the Tiny Tags Christmas stamp set.

I used a stamp from Merry & Bright for the inside of my gift card.

I think everything came together beautifully and I know my niece was happy.

Christmas Gift Cards for PKS Face Day

Hi there!

Today it is my day to share a Peachy Keen Stamps Face Day Project on the Peachy Keen Stamps Blog!

I know many of you, like me, have probably bought a few gift cards to give as holiday gifts this season. Gift cards are an easy gift but don't seem to have the same impact as other gifts because there isn't much to unwrap. So, I like to create gift card holders for my gift cards.

Of course, if you add Peachy Keen Stamps you have really brought them up a few notches.

Check these cuties out!

The gift card holder itself is just a 6x8" piece of cardstock that I scored at 3" on the 6' side and 4" on the 8" sided and folded. I cut away a portion on the inside and glued it down the center to creat a pocket for the gift card.

Here is what it looks like on the inside:

The fun part was decorating the outside.

For my cute faces I used a cut file from My Scrap Chick called Sweet Winter Faces. Ech one has a different Peachy Keen Stamp Face.

I love PKS PK-1445 Happy Snow Couples Face Assortment. I colored the cute snowman's face in with Copic Markers and added a sentiment from PK-859 Christmas Greeting Words

My penguins face is from PK-1448 Happy Penguin Couples 1 1/8" Faces and the sentiment is from PKSC-31 July 2014.

This cute ginger's face is from an oldie but a goodie set. PK-560 Dolly Dumplins Face Assortment was perfect for this ginger! The sentiment is from PKSC-31 July 2014.

I had a lot of fun putting these guys together and hope I've provided a bit of inspiration to you, too!

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Blessed New Year!

Merry and Bright! ~ My Craft Spot Challenge

Hi there! I am back today to share a card I created for this week's challenge at My Craft Spot.

The challenge:
Create a Christmas Shaped Card

I used a cute file from Miss Kate Cuttables called Christmas Wreath. I created a shadow around to create the base of the card.  This is sized at 5.5".

For the ornaments I added some Stickles in Xmas Red, Lime Green, and Yellow and topped that with Glossy Accents for a bit of dimension.

My sentiment is from My Craft Spot's Merry Bright set. Love this beautiful stamp set!

You can find this set, as well as, many others in the My Craft Spot Shop.

Heart & Home ~ My Craft Spot Challenge

Hi There! It's Monday and time for a new challenge at My Craft Spot.

Challenge #159
Thanksgiving / Fall 

Here is the card I made for this challenge.

This card came together pretty quickly by just using My Craft Spot's stamps and dies.

My sentiment is from the Happy Thanksgiving stamp set. I heat embossed it with white embossing powder on a piece vellum.

I added some faux stitching to to my blue strip of cardstock using a die from the Fancy Edges - Halloween. A strip of burlap was added and a Petaloo flower. I added some leaves from the Flower - Daisy die to finish it off.

We would love to see you Thanksgiving or Fall creations using My Craft Spot products but it is not necessary to participate.

Head on over to My Craft Spot to see all the wonderful samples and for the challenge details.

Hi There! I am back today to sharing one last project using this month's Peachy Keen Stamps Release.

Isn't it just awesome! I used the new PK-1437 Square Cow Print and  PK-1438 Square Bandana Basic background stamps. My boot and holly come from PK-1442 Cowboy Christmas. I colored them with Copic markers and added a little bit of sparkle with my Spica pen.

My sentiment is from PK-1449 Holiday Sentiments. I added some twine and the card was complete.

These stamps are available for purchase today in the Peachy Keen Stamps Shop. Go grab yours!

Warm Winter Wishes ~ Peachy Keen Stamps Sneak Peek Day 2

Today I am sharing another penguin card. I just love these penguins!

This little penguin is from the new PK- 1452 Faceless Happy Snow Day Assortment. This set comes with a few characters and you can add different hats to them. I colored this cute penguin with my Copic markers and added some Stickles to her hat. Her darling face comes from PK-1447 Happy Penguins Couple Assortment. These faces are darling.

I decided that this cute penguin would be perfect on the Cup of Cocoa card. This card is an SVG from My Scrap Chick called Cup of Cocoa and Tea Set.

To finish off this card I chose a sentiment from the new PK-1449 Holiday Sentiments.

Let Us Give Thanks ~ PKS Face Day

Hi there! Today I am the featured designer on the Peachy Keen Stamps Blog.

It's Face Day and I just love using Peachy Keen Stamps faces!

Today I am sharing a fun project that would be perfect to give to your guests for Thanksgiving.

I made these cute treat boxes that I found at My Scrap Chick. I used the following files: 

These files come with face parts but I just had to Peachify them.

I resized that treat boxes to make them smaller and stamped them with PK-1321 In the Garden Faces 1 1/8. I colored in the eyes with my white gem pen and added a bit of color with Copic markers.

Once that boxes were put together I added a sentiment from PKSC-22 October 2013 that I added to the pretty scalloped tags I made using the Tiny Doilies dies from My Craft Spot.

These would look great at each person's place setting on Thanksgiving day.

Be sure to head on over to the Peachy Keen Stamps Blog for more inspiration!

I hope you enjoyed my Peachy project!

Thanks for stopping by!

So Very Thankful ~ My Craft Spot Inspiration

Hi there! Today I am sharing some inspiration on the My Craft Spot Blog.

With Thanksgiving just around the corner I have been thinking about how thankful I am for all that the Lord has given me. So today I thought I would share a little thankful gift card set I created using My Craft Spot products.

This little box and note cards are a cut file from My Scrap Chick called Sunflower Greetings. This is a great set as you can personalize it just the way you want. I  adjusted the size so that my note cards measured 3" x 3.25". I chose paper's from My Mind's Eye Collectable - Remarkable pad. The front of my box is decorated with the Flowers - Daisy dies from My Craft Spot. I added some Solid Red Baker's Twine ( available at My Craft Spot ) and tied a little bow.

My note cards also feature the Flowers - Daisy die and the sentiment is from My Craft Spot's Fall Leaves stamp set. I heat embossed the sentiment in opaque white embossing powder.

To wrap my gift set, I used a small brow lunch bag and stamped it with another sentiment from the Fall Leaves set. Lastly, I added a tag embossed with yet, another sentiment from that same set. The tag is tied on with some more Solid Red Baker's Twine.

Make sure to visit the My Craft Spot blog everyday for inspiration!

I hope you were inspired today to used your My Craft Spot products.

Thanks for joining me today!

Counting Blessings ~ My Craft Spot Monday Challenge

Hi There! I am here to share with you the card I created for My Craft Spot's Monday Challenge.

This week's challenge is Sequins!

I love sequins and think they are so fun!

I had this fun paper sitting on my craft desk for a few weeks now and finally used it. My designer paper is from Doodlebug's Friendly Forrest. It is so fun and I love the colors!

Since the challenge is sequins I knew I wanted to make a shaker card.

I used My Craft Spot's Scrapping Life Cards metal dies to create my shaker. I stamped the inside with My Craft Spot's Happy Thanksgiving stamp set using Momento Rick Cocoa ink and Color Box Purple pigment ink. I filled my shaker with My Craft Spot's Orange Creamsicle, Perfectly Purple, Chocolate Sundae, and Pumpkin sequins.

I added this cute little fox from the Create A Critter Cricut cartridge. The eyes were stamped from Peachy Keen Stamps PK-640 Princess Face Assortment. I finished the card off with some purple ribbon I had in my stash and a few more sequins.

We would love for you to join us in the challenge this week. Head on over to My Craft Spot to check out the guidelines and see what the other designer's have created.

Thanks for joining me today!

My Craft Spot Christmas Release Blog Hop

***Commenting for drawing now closed***

Hi There! After a week full of sneak peeks you are finally able to see the full My Craft Spot Christmas Release.

We are celebrating today with a Christmas Release Blog Hop!

You should have arrived here from Lisa's Blog. Wasn't here project amazing!

If you just happened upon my blog and would like to start from the beginning then head on over to the My Craft Spot Blog.

Today I am sharing a project using one of Kimberly's new SVG files and, of course, some of the new stamps are included.

For my project I used the Curvy Box SVG file. Kimberly made this so easy to put together. I enlarged it a bit, added a tag made from the Ornate Labels Die and stamped it with the new Christmas Chalkboard Sentiments. It was finished off with a bit of glitter around the window and a snowflake brad from my stash.

Here is a close up of my card.

My card was cut from a shape found on the Winter Woodland Cricut Cartridge. I glittered up the snowflake and popped it from the card. I added a sentiment from the new Tiny Tags Christmas Sentiments. The snowflakes are from the Christmas Chalkboard Sentiments. I cute my sentiment from the Tony Doilies Dies

Here's a look at the new stamps:

Naughty or Nice stamp set

O Holy Night stamp set

Merry & Bright stamp set

These are all the projects I made with the these wonderful stamps and SVGs so far:

The new stamps are available for purchase today in the My Craft Spot Store.

The SVG files can be found at SVG Cut Files!

Kimberly has so graciously given me a $10 gift certificate to give away to one lucky person that leaves a comment on this post.
