Day 4 Of My Craft Spots Release Party




Hello everyone! Day 4 of My Craft Spot's sneak peeks, and only 2 days until the full release and BLOG HOP!!! Are you getting excited yet? Make sure you go over to My Craft Spot everyday this week for a daily prize. And come back on Saturday for the Blog Hop where you could win a new stamp from each blog in the hop!
Today we are giving Sneak Peeks of the Bundle Of Joy stamp set. I have to admit that I actually cried when I read some of these sentiments! My only child is getting ready to head off to college and these stamps really touched my heart. Kimberly had created some beautiful stamps in this release!
For my card I created this beautiful scene. And the sentiment is SO true! There's nothing like holding your baby for the first time and realizing that you LOVE them more than anything else.
I cut the "mom" from Sweethearts. She's the girl being proposed too. I sized her really big so just her upper body would show in the frame. The crook of her arm was the perfect place to put a baby. The baby was cut from Winter Frolic (Baby Jesus). I re-sized him a little wider in my Gypsy and stamped the face. I also covered his whole body in twine to make it look like a baby blanket and added his head over the top. The heart mat and scallop frame I cut by hand so I could custom size it to the stamp. I used a pair of scallop scissors to get the scallops. To finish the front I added a punched border strip and some crinkle ribbon with a bow. The inside I stamped the sentiment and added a matching paper strip.

SUPPLIES:
My Craft Spot- Bundle Of Joy Stamp Set, Lemon Divine Twine and Buttercup Crinkle Ribbon
Cricut- Sweethearts and Winter Frolic
Peachy Keen- Happy Lashes ( I used the nose stamped twice, once upside down for the mouth on the baby)
Border Punch, Scallop Decorative Scissors, Sizzix Button Candy Texture Folder
Thanks for stopping in today and don't forget to head over to My Craft Spot for more sneak peeks and the daily prize! Have a great day!
