Welcome to the My Craft Spot Stamp Release Blog Hop! We've been celebrating all week and today is the big day! Kimberly's entire new release is revealed and available for purchase at the gorgeous My Craft Spot Shop! :o) You can see all of her new goodies at the end of my post!
Every DT member has one of the new stamp or metal die sets to give away, so be sure to comment along the way. You should have arrived here from the sweet and talented Heather! The hop order is listed below in case you get lost along the way. :o)
For my project, I created a 3D gate flower basket for my mom! I was inspired by Kimberly's new encouraging sentiments and springtime images. :o)
The journey to this creation began with the beautiful sentiment from the NEW Jar Full of Flowers stamp set! Like many, my mom is eager for this harsh winter to end so I made her a springy bouquet that will never fade. :o)
I cut out the sentiment as a banner and wrapped it around a Wild Orchid Crafts crown pearl stick pin, like the little greetings that are stuck inside real flower arrangements. The box cut file was filled with a foam block from JoAnns floral department and then I played florist with Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and pearl sprays. I wrapped MCS Petal Pink crinkle ribbon around the box and centered a double-bow with a WOC scalloped pearl.
One of our favorite things is when butterflies frolic around flowers, so I used the gorgeous butterflies from the Jar Full of Flowers stamp set! They are colored with Copics, layered, and sporadically placed around the bouquet and gate.
Two sunshiny yellow butterflies surround one of the lovely messages from the NEW Simply Sentiments stamp set. It rests atop an elegant doily from the NEW Tiny Doilies 2 metal die set. I love the delicacy of these doilies! :o)
The gate basket cut file is surrounded with portions of a Memory Box Spring Border. This project was such a joy to create. It's exciting to see inspiration blossom from Kimberly's products. :o)
