My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party- Day 4!

Hello, my treasured friends! Are you ready for more fun?! :o)

Welcome to Day 4 of the My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party! All week long we're sharing sneak peek projects using FIVE new stamp sets and THREE new metal die sets! The celebration ends with a fantastic blog hop on Saturday, with prizes at every stop! :o) Kimberly is also offering daily giveaways at the My Craft Spot blog!

Today we are showcasing the new Jar Full of Flowers stamp set, which coordinates with Kimberly's amazing Jar Basics stamp set and metal dies. I was so excited to see a new addition to her popular 'Jar' series... and let me tell you, this one is gorgeous!

My card is for this month's I Feel the Love Project, where we are making projects for the Pediatric Floor at UCLA Hospital in Santa Monica. Not only does this stamp set have sweet flowers, but it also has butterflies!
Color me sparkly! You know my adoration of butterflies. After coloring them with Copics, I layered the two sizes of 'overhead' views and also doubled up the side-view stamp... I wanted it to look like they're in flight, fluttering off of the card. :o)
They are covered in Star Dust for a sparkling rainbow of healing love. The twinkly patterned paper is from Kaisercraft's Magic Happens collection. Isn't the flower beautiful? I doubled it up for extra dimension, with foam tape between the layers. The sweet sentiment is also from this new set. My jar is from Jar Basics, which is heat-embossed in silver. Zva Creative flourishes burst forth in delight, encouraging the butterflies (and recipient) to rise up, look up, and believe their rainbow is coming.
The lovely shape for my card base is an accent element from a St. Patrick's Day card cut file. I knew I'd want to enlarge it to use as a base shape, as the eyelet trim is just so pretty. I replaced the tiny holes in the design with crystals, which I colored with Copics to match the butterflies. A delicate rainbow trim seemed appropriate. :o) The stunning lace is from The Ribbon Girl.

It was hard to use a completely white card base, but I wanted these new butterfly stamps to pop. I pray this brings hope and joy to the battling child, enticing a smile amidst the pain. There's nothing sweeter than a child's smile and I'll do all I can to encourage one. :o)

Pirouette on over to My Craft Spot to see the incredible work by the entire Design Team! Leave a comment on Kimberly's post to be entered to win today's daily prize: Tiny Tags Metal Dies! (One of my favorite MCS products!)
