My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party- O Holy Night

Hello, my sweet friends! I hope you're having a sparkly day! Welcome to Day 2 of the My Craft Spot stamp release party! :o)

Today we are featuring the NEW O Holy Night stamp set! This collection has a variety of beautiful sentiments that work perfectly for any Christmastime project. They just warm the heart. (All of the new stamps and SVG files will be available for purchase on Saturday!)

To celebrate the true meaning of the season, I made an elegant cross that can be used as a large tree ornament or a sweet wall hanging.
A little closer in on the cross, which is a layered cut file from the Silhouette Online Store:
It is backed in burgundy for a rich representation of His love, with a snowy flourish of joy. And I could not resist adding a complete border of pearls. :o) (Yes, it took quite a while.)
This is one of the simpler sentiments on this set, which nestled in so perfectly. The script is gorgeous and stands so beautifully on its own! My wintry paper is from Pion Design's Silent Night collection. The Fancy Flourish is from My Favorite Things, which is covered in Glamour Dust. The snowflakes are from Cheery Lynn Designs.
The precious dangling snowflake was made with the Flowers- Daisy dies, which is covered in Glamour Dust and centered with a Wild Orchid Crafts rose. Love truly blossomed into life on that holy day. :o) The simple hanger on top is made with Chocolate twine.

Flutter on over to the My Craft Spot blog to see the lovely creations from my inspiring teamies! While there, leave a comment on Kimberly's post for a chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate to the My Craft Spot store!
