My Craft Spot's Stamp Release Blog Hop




Hello everyone! IT's FINALLY the day you get to see the full reveal of the new stamps! If you came from My Craft Spot, you're in the right place. If not you will want to start at the beginning at My Craft Spot so you won't miss a thing! You can also see all the new stamp sets there too!
For my project today, I made a set of 3 winter cards! These bears are so stinkin cute, I just LOVE them! I kept the design very simple to re-create several of these cards. 
Each card I started by embossing the background with a snowflake folder and used my sewing machine to sew around the mat. The bears were cut from Teddy Bear Parade. The blue bear I left the design as it is in the booklet. The other 2, I hid the bear on the sweater and stamped the designs using the NEW Stampin' Around Christmas stamp set. I also added twine poms and tassle's to their hats. I used Holly Berry, Christmas Candy Cane, and Chocolate Truffle Trendy Twine.I stamped each sentiment from the NEW Think Snow stamp set and used  a punch to punch them out. I added some more twine around the card and mounted the sentiments on pop dots. 
Now for the BEST part! Each one of us is giving away 1 one the new stamp sets! All you have to do is leave a comment on all the blogs through the hop, and that will give you a total of 9 chances! I am giving away the stamp set I used in these cards...Think Snow!
Just leave a comment and you will be entered to win. We will announce all the winners on Monday November 12.
Now you're off to the very talented Ally!
Here is the hop order in case you get lost
