Spooky Treats ~ My Craft Spot Challenge

Hi There!

It's time for a new Monday challenge over at My Craft Spot.

This week's challenge is Sweet Treats.

Here is what I made for the challenge:

To create this box, I started with the Sweet Nugget Matchboxes from My Scrap Chick. I used some older designer papers from My Mind's Eye that I have had in my stash for quite some time.

I added a sentiment from My Craft Spot's Banner Sentiments - Fall set and mimicked the spiders from my patterned card stock using the Halloween Shapes dies also from My Craft Spot. The eyes are some enamel dots from My Mind's Eye. I just used a permanent black marker for the center of the eyes.

If you would like to play along with us head on over to My Craft Spot to see all the guidelines for the challenge.

Thank you for joining me today!

Happy Little Moments ~ My Craft Spot and My Scrap Chick

Hi There!

Today I have a fun little camera box to share with you.

I made this fun box using a the Camera Trio file from My Scrap Chick and used My Craft Spot products to give it just the right touch.

The front of my camera is stamped with a sentiment from the Scrapping Life Everyday stamp set and embellished the camera with a rolled flower and leaves from  Flowers - Daisy dies. Some Natural Jute Twine was added, as well as, a few pearls and brads from my stash.

This box could be filled with some treats or some fun insta-gram photos.

Head on over to My Craft Spot to see all the wonderful inspiration featuring My Craft Spot products!

Thanks for joining me today!

Spooky Treats featuring Peachy Keen Stamps

Hi there! 

Today I am sharing some fun little treats featuring Peachy faces over on the Peachy Keen Stamps Blog.

I made these fun lollipop covers using my Silhouette Cameo and some SVG files from My Scrap Chick called Halloween Treat Toppers and Bags.

The files come with cute faces but I love using Peachy Keen Faces for more character.

For Dracula I used PK-695 The Uglies 1 1/8 and Phrases for the eyes.

For both of the "scary" monsters I first stamped the eyes on some Xpress-it card stock and colored then with my Copic markers. I, then, fussy cut them out and added them to the faces. Frankies mouth was also stamped with PK-694. To give the eyes shine I added some Ranger Glossy Accents.

The sentiment is part of the The Uglies Face assortment.

These were really fun to put together and would be great for some little goblins that came to your door.

I hope I've inspired you to get these stamps out and play!

Fabulous Birthday ~ My Craft Spot Design Post

Hi There! It's my day to post on the My Craft Spot Blog and this what I am sharing.

I made a super quick card for my sister's birthday. I wanted to make her a card but I didn't have a lot of time to get it together.  That's what I love about using stamps and dies from My Craft Spot. They make it so easy to put something fabulous together!

To create this card you will need the following:

Pretty patterned paper - I used Echo Parks For the Record 2
My Craft Spot Washi Tape Dies
My Craft Spot Build A Birthday stamp set
My Craft Spot Natural Jute String

This is a pretty easy card to put together. I used the Washi Tape dies to cut some strips from my patterned paper. The tag was created by tracing a Kraft tag I had on hand on some of my patterned paper. I stamped the tag with my sentiment and adhered it to the front of my card. I then layered my washi tape papers on top of the tag. I added a jute bow and button. 

My Craft Spot is have a guest designer call! You can view all the details HERE.

Thanks so much for visiting me today!

Halloween Chalk Art ~ My Craft Spot Challenge

Hi there! I am back with another card today. If you would like to see my PKS post just scroll down.

My card featured here is for My Crafts Spot's Monday challenge.

This week's challenge is to make something using Chalk Art.

This was a fun card to make and all I used were My Craft Spot stamps and dies.

To get the chalkboard look I stamped the middle panel with Chalkboard Sentiments - Fall in Versa Mark ink and then heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I added some chalk smudges with some Hero Arts ink. The faux stitching on the top and bottom edge was created by using a die from My Craft Spot's Fancy Edges - Halloween and from the same set I made my spider web border. My spider web border is actually wax paper. I was using the wax paper with my die so that it would help remove all the little paper tags from the die but I loved the look so much that I used it.

The skull and cross bones, ghost, and potion bottle are all from the Halloween Shapes dies. I added a sentiment from Halloween Potions to my potion bottle.

 I added some Black Jute and Trick or Treat Sequins.

This was a fun card to put together!

To find all the details for this challenge please head on over to My Craft Spot.

Batty For You ~ My Craft Spot September Release Party Day 5

Scroll down or click HERE for my PKS Day 2 sneak peek.

Welcome to Day 5 of My Craft Spot's September Release Party!

This week has been filled with some fun projects featuring fall and Halloween stamps and dies. Today we are focusing on the last of 5 stamp sets, Batty For You.

When I saw this skeleton from Miss Kate Cuttables I knew I wanted to use him on my card. The skeleton and tombstone were cut with my Silhouette. 

My background was created by stamping my gray paper with the Cloudy Day Background stamp from Peachy Keen Stamps.

I placed the background piece on a black mat. I used the My Craft Spot Fancy Edges - Halloween dies to cut the edge of my mat. To my scene I added a small tombstone and black cat which is part of the Halloween Shapes dies.

I used 3 different sentiments from the new Batty For You set. I heat embossed them in black embossing powder.

These new stamps and dies will be available for purchase Saturday from My Craft Spot.

Now what's a party with a prize?

Welcome back creative friends!

How about that first day of sneak peeks? Pretty amazing, right? Well we have more!!
Welcome to Day #2 of sneak peeks for the PKS September 2014 Release!

Tonight the Peachy Keen Stamps design team is sharing creations using four new stamp sets that were originally designed and created to go with various other stamp sets or themes that have been previously released. Each month as Kathy begins her creative process, she takes sketches and ideas from a specific theme and runs with it. There's no way she could possibly include each and EVERY sketch or idea in every release, but some of them are just too darned cute NOT to make the cut at some point. This is where this release comes in. This evening you will see creations using the Haunted A2 Background, Birch Frame Background, Ballet Bears, and Smile Eagle.

For my card tonight I chose to use stamps from the new Ballet Bears set.

I colored this cute little bear with my Copic markers and add a little bit on Diamond Stickles to her wand. You can't see it in the picture but I also added some touches of glitter to her tu-tu.

The bear and sentiment are both from the Ballet Bear set, which will be available for purchase tomorrow night.

Friends, be sure to drop by the designers' blogs to see what each on has created and don't forget to leave your comments for a chance to win ALL of the stamp sets being featured tonight! Winners will be announced on Monday, September 8th.

Hi There! I am back with Day 4's sneak peek of the My Craft Spot September Release!

Today we are sharing peeks of another new stamp set called Chalkboard Sentiments - Fall.

I decided to cover a movie-sized box of candy with a not so spooky wrapper. :)

The wrapper was created with patterned paper and edged with the spider web border from the new Fancy Edges - Halloween die. I trimmed it in some ribbon.

My cute little ghost is a silhouette file that you can find HERE. I stamped his face with a Peachy Keen Stamps face from PK-1320 In the Garden Face Assortment. I colored the eyes with Copic markers and added Glossy Accents for some shine.

My little ghost is peeking from behind a tombstone that I made from the Ornate Labels Die. I inked around the edge and heat embossed my sentiment with black embossing powder. The sentiment is from the brand new Chalkboard Sentiments - Fall stamp set. I finished the front of my wrapper with a few Trick or Treat sequins and Toadally Green sequins.

All of the new stamps and dies will be available for purchase on Saturday.

Candy Corn Cutie ~ My Craft Spot September Release Party Day 3

Hi there! I'm back with another peek of My Craft Spot's September release!

What do you think so far? Are you loving the new stamps and dies? I know I am !

Each day this week the My Craft Spot designers are featuring projects using the new stamps and dies from My Craft Spot. Kimberly is releasing 5 new stamp sets and 4 new dies.

Today we are featuring the new Banners Sentiments - Fall stamp set.

Here is my project for today.

Isn't this candy corn box cute! I found the cut file in the Silhouette store. It came together quick easily. My sentiment is from My Craft Spot's Banner Sentiments - Fall set. I curved the sentiment on my acrylic block a little to match the curve of the designer paper.

This sentiment called for a cute face to go with it so I chose a Peachy Keen Stamps face from PK-293 The Cornies Face Assortment. I colored in the eyes and tooth with my white gel pen. To finish off this cutie I added a bow from my stash. Super easy!

Each day Kimberly is giving away a prize to one lucky person who comments on the My Craft Spot Blog.

Today she is giving away Jute String ( 10 yards of each color ).

Make sure you head on over to the My Craft Spot Blog to leave a comment and to see all the amazing projects the design team has created!

The Elements of Autumn ~ My Craft Spot September Sneak Peek Day 2

Hi there! Welcome back for Day 2 of My Craft Spot sneak peeks!

Didn't you love all the fun peeks yesterday! Well today we bring you more.

We are focusing on the new Fall Leaves stamp set.

Here is a fun project that I made featuring this set along with a sneak peek at one of the new dies that My Craft Spot will be releasing this month.

My project was inspired by the new stamp I chose. This mug is an SVG file from My Scrap Chick called Full Cup Treat Holders. I used DCWV Autumn Splendor for the sides of my mug.

My sentiment is from My Craft Spot's Fall Leaves stamp set. I stamped it by layering 3 different ink pads to give it a gradient look. I added my sentiment to a tag and tied it to my treat bag with Paper Cord (available at My Craft Spot).

I decorated the front of the mug using the Tiny Doilies dies and elements from the new Fall Border die that will be released later this week.

I love this little mug it came together quickly and you can fill it with some many fun treat. The My Craft Spot stamps and dies really help you to make it extra special!

We can't have a release party without some prizes, right?

Today Kimberly is giving away...

All you have to do is leave a comment on the My Craft Spot Blog.

I hope you are enjoying the sneak peeks so far! Come back tomorrow for Day 3!

Until next time...
Happy Crafting!

Why Yes Actually... ~ My Craft Spot Sneak Peek Day 1

Hi there! It's a big week!

This week I will be sharing some sneak peeks of the My Craft Spot September Release.

You are in for a real treat! Kimberly has so great stamp and die sets that you are going to love.

Today is day one and we are featuring the first set of stamps called Halloween Potions.

Check this card I created:

When I saw this sentiment on this set I just couldn't wait to use it.

The silhouette is from the Chic and Scary Cricut cartridge. I cut it our 4 times and layered each cut on top of one another to give it a more chipboard look. I then layered that on my orange background. I covered the cut in some Black Diamond Stickles but I think the next time I will run my cut upside down through my Zyron sticker maker and add the glitter that way. It was a little hard to get an even coverage with the Stickles. I still like this card though.

My sentiment was stamped in Versa Mark Ink and then heat embossed with white embossing powder. I added a bat in the corner that is from a new die set called Halloween Shapes and covered it in Black Diamond Stickles.

I finished the card off with some Midnight Black Crinkle Ribbon (available at My Craft Spot) and a flower from my stash.

Make sure you head on over to My Craft Spot to see what all of the designers have created. While you are there make sure to leave a comment. 

Today Kimberly will be giving away these fun sequins to one lucky person but you must leave a comment!

The colors shown here are: Perfectly Purple, Toadally Green, Creamsicle Orange

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think about today's sneak peek! I'd love to hear from you!

Come back tomorrow for Day 2 of My Craft Spot's September Sneak Peeks!
