My Craft Spot Stamp Release Blog Hop!

Happy Saturday, sparkly friends! Welcome to the My Craft Spot Blog Hop, where we're celebrating the Fall release! All of the new goodies are now available for purchase HERE! Each stop on the hop is giving away a gift certificate to Kimberly's store to put toward the purchase of your choice! Yay! :o)

I'm your last stop on this celebratory blog hop! You should have arrived here from the sweet and talented Kate of Small Bits of Paper. If you've just stumbled upon my blog, flutter on over to Kimberly at My Craft Spot to start the beginning! You won't want to miss a single stop. :o)

I adore the harvest season and all it entails, from Autumn's foliage to the zip-zip of corduroy! :o) One of my favorite things is spending time with loved ones, sharing a sweet treat as we treasure precious moments together. Times of encouragement and building up of faith, being thankful for every blessing from above.

To accompany these beautiful moments, I made a sweet treat box that doubles as a pretty home decor accent. :o)
What a joy this was to create! I saw this tutorial at Stamp Artic for a tea box and instantly fell in love. I will be making more of these in various designs/sizes for tea, candles, hot cocoa, etc. Stamp Artic provides a wonderful base with which to begin. Naturally I began with chocolate. ;)
The fluttering leaves throughout the box are from the NEW Fall Border metal die set. The border itself is stunning and I am so happy Kimberly included layering dies for each part, enabling them to be used individually. I inked up my leaves to make them two-toned and painted them with Rock Candy Crackle Paint.  
The gorgeous sentiment is from the NEW Fall Leaves stamp set. This is one of my favorite sets, as it is filled with such beautiful greetings in varying sizes. It's perfect for any project expressing Autumn, harvest, or thankfulness.
For the front of my box, I created a sweet little scene with some of the new dies. The leaf and acorns are from the Fall Border set and the sweet pumpkins are from the Fall Wheelbarrow set.
Along with chocolates, the box contains a few tags to remind us to keep a thankful lifestyle and to enjoy this beautiful season. More will soon be added. :o) 
My papers are from Maja Design's Walking in the Forest. The decorative bottom of my box is a Spellbinders Romantic Rectangle. The top of my backing design is Marianne Design's Anja's Vintage Decoration. The frame I created for my sentiment is a Spellbinders Gold Labels Four, while my tags are Spellbinders Timeless Rectangles.

You can't have a blog hop without BLOG CANDY, right?! Kimberly is generously supplying each of us with a $10 Gift Certificate to the My Craft Spot Shop to give away! To be eligible to win mine, simply leave me a comment on this post. :o) (I will select and announce the winner on Monday morning!)
