My Craft Spot Spring Stamp Release Blog Hop

Goodmorning and welcome to the My Craft Spot Spring Stamp Release Blog Hop!  I hope you have been enjoying the beautiful sneak peeks Kimberly and the Design Team have been showcasing this week!  What do you think of those stamps!?!  I'm loving each and every one of them! 

You should have arrived from the talented Ally at Rock Paper Cricut.  If not, make sure you hop on over to My Craft Spot to start at the begining of the hop because you are not going to want to miss a stop!  There are gorgeous projects and a set of stamps to be won at each stop...WooHoo! 

My first project uses both Happily Ever After and Tiny Tags

It is a baby boy card and I made it to show you how versatile the Happily Ever After Stamp Set can be!  The little toy is cut from B is For Boy Cartridge.

I added a Tiny Tag with some Vintage Blue Bakers Twine.  It is all layered onto MME Portobello Road pattern paper and Stampin' Up cardstock.

Across the bottom I used the "So happy for you" sentiment off of Happily Ever After and tied some Stormy Day Crinkle Ribbon.

Next I have a little spring card to share with you. 

I absolutely LOVE the  new Butterfly Kisses Stamp Set.  I couldn't resist using this sentiment this week!  I paired it with the cute little HG Rain, Rain Digi from The Greeting Farm and MME Jack & Jill pattern paper.

I layered the pp panels, sentiment, digi with dimensionals and added some Gold Seam Binding to finish it off!

My last card didn't turn out so nicely. 
I saw a card like this at my Stampin' Up Demo's house and thought I could make it.  Well, it turned out to be a lot harder to scraplift than I thought it would!

I LOVE the sweet treat cups, but have a hard time bringing myself to use them.  It took me a while to figure out how to make it stand like a regular card but still get the M&Ms out!

A slider on a 3x3 attached to the card is what I ended up coming up with.

I thought after all the hard work, I would turn this into a Mother's Day Card.  I used the "Happy Mother's Day" sentiment from the new Happy Easter set.

Ok, so what do you think so far?  As promised I have a special stamp set to give away today.  One LUCKY winner will win the Happy Easter Stamp Set!  Please leave me a comment letting me know which is your favorite new stamp set!   I'll draw the winner next week so stop back to see if you've won!

Well, thank you for hopping by today!  There is a copy of the Blog Hop line-up below in case you get lost along the way.  I also added my sneak peeks for the week in case you missed them!  It is time for you to hop on to your next stop to see the amazing work from my talented friend

Your cards are fabulous! I LOVE the baby boy sailboat. What a clever idea and it looks terrific. And that M&M card looks super to me too. I really like the way you have an opening for the candies. I've only used my treat cups once but there was no way to get at the sweets without cutting the card apart. I wish I'd seen this first!
Amber, your projects have been super all week and you've done a wonderful job showcasing Kimberly's new stamps. I especially like your darling little gnome! I want to give him a cuddle!!
(I'm not here for the prize - just to compliment you on your wonderful work!)

These are great! I've never seen a card with a treat cup in it before. It looks like it would be tricky to set up, but the end result is awesome!
