My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party Blog Hop

Hello Everyone and welcome to the My Craft Spot Blog Hop!  Kimberly is releasing 4 new stamps sets to her store at My Craft Spot today and they are all so much fun!  I feel so fortunate to have the opportunity to work with a talented papercrafter like Kimberly as well as the rest of the creative Design Team!  If you have come from Kimberly's blog then you are heading in the right direction!  If you are stopping by to see me today (thanks), then you will not want to miss out on this!  Head back to My Craft Spot to start at the beginning!  There are so many creative projects along the way, not to mention Kimberly has given each of us on the Design Team a new stamp set to give away...YAY!  There are only 9 stops, so please join us and hop!

We have been sharing our sneak peeks of the four new Stamp Sets all week and now we are ending the week with our best projects!  I have made two fun holiday party projects for you today!  Would you like to see what I have made for your inspiration?

My first project is a Halloween project using Candy Corn Kisses!  

I have been working on sets of these invitations for weeks!  I started back in July when Kimberly first told me there would be new stamps coming out!  

 I didn't know at the time that she would have these perfect party invitation stamps, but I knew there would be something adorable to stamp on them!  You can imagine my excitement when I saw the Candy Corn Kisses stamp set!

Here is a close up of these great stamps!

I made these Criss Cross style invitations and covered them with a homemade pattern paper (Click HERE to see my little tutorial on how to get this effect).  I added matching strands of Crinkle Ribbon to the invitation and adhered these fun googly eyes to the band!

The glitter on the bands is Martha Stewart's Glow in the Dark!   I still have another dozen or so to make, and I think I am more excited to send these out to everyone than I am to have the Halloween party!  These stamps couldn't have been any more perfect! 

My second project is a Thanksgiving project using the Happy Fall Stamp Set! 

I made little Thanksgiving treat boxes.  You know how there is always that period of time before dinner where there are people sitting at the table just waiting for the BIG dinner to be served.  I thought this could be a cute, tasty little snack before hand or it can be saved for afterwards (if there is room)! 

I filled a cello bag with these chocolate & yogurt flavored nuts and raisins then tied it closed with Chocolate Truffle Bakers Twine (that almost sound good enough to eat)!  I stamped the "Gobble Gobble!" stamp on a vanilla card stock and punched it out to make a tag.  I was thinking these could also double as name plates for dinner too by writing every one's names on the back side!

The "Turkey Time!" is another one of the fun stamps from the new Happy Fall set.  The papers are a retired Stampin' Up! DSP and the colors are beautiful.  Notice how the gorgeous Crinkle Ribbon matches perfectly!  I cut the turkey from Animal Kingdom and colored it with Stampin' Write Markers.  

The scalloped squares are from Plantin Schoolbook.  Everything is popped up and layered with either SU dimensionals or Helmar Zapdots.  Since Thanksgiving is still 3 months away, I only filled one bag for now.  I'll be munching on the rest of these until it is time to stuff the boxes and the bird...mmmmm!

Ok, so who wants some blog candy?  Kimberly has given me my favorite stamp set to give away to one lucky winner today,
Happy Fall!

Wow, Amber, I have had company all week long (they left yesterday), and I have sadly been away from visiting my bloggy friends. AND look what I missed! Your mojo is red hot!!! My jaw just won't stay closed, even when I manually shut it, my jaw drops right open again. I love autumn colors, and your treat cup leaf card is darling. The fright night haunted house…I have no words…awesome, amazing, unbelievable. The witch card with its fab colors and fun sewing and excellent shadow inking? Lovely! And the criss-cross invite with faboo embossing…can I CASE you??? That belly band is phenomenal too. BEST post of the summer.

Thank you for this inspiration, Sweetie!!!!

Amazing projects. My fav stamp set is Happy Fall. I like the googly eyes on the Halloween project & the coloring of the turkey (did not know there was a turkey on the Animal Kingdom cartridge and I just made a Lion card using it) on the Fall project.

An'Jenic Scrapbooking and Cards said...

Okay I didn’t think I would have to choose a favorite stamp set. LOL I love the all. So with that said I like the Halloween stamp set. No I like Thanksgiving Okay that settled.

Love your take on the stamp. Love the invitation. So cute and the googly eye are a very nice touch. I would love and invite to your party just for the card. And the Thanksgiving treat box is a great ideal. Can you PLEASE post a tutorial of how you put it together?

Thanks

These are fantastic projects! I remember when I was little, my sisters who are 13 & 11 years older than me used to get invited to "Come As You Are" parties on Saturday afternoons in the 1950's where they would suddenly have to go to a party with no makeup and their hair in curlers. It was always a bunch of their screaming girlfriends at the party! lol!
