My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party- Day 1!

Welcome to the My Craft Spot Stamp Release party! Each day this week we will be sharing projects to showcase FOUR new stamp sets and TWO new metal die sets! Kimberly will have a giveaway every day this week, so be sure to leave a comment at My Craft Spot to be eligible for the daily prize. You'll also be treated to an abundance of inspiration from the entire team! The party will end with a blog hop celebration on Saturday, where the full release is revealed and prizes will be given at every stop! Kimberly's new goodies will also be available for purchase beginning that day. :o)

Today we are featuring the new Clock Time stamp set and I love every single inch of it! The sentiments are fantastic, as are the images. (Throughout the week we will also be incorporating the new Fancy Edges 2 metal dies into some of our projects.)
The sentiment and clock face are from this gorgeous new set. I love the clocks so much that I used two of them to create a frame for my little scene. I stamped various times on the faces, as we never know God's timing... we just trust that it will be perfect, as Written. I used Rich Cocoa Memento ink to match the paper, stamping first on a spare sheet to lighten the shade.
Isn't the clock face stamp beautiful? I had it on my heart to create a vintage hanging clock, so I combined two cut files from the Silhouette Online Store to meet my vision: a vintage sign post and a vintage label frame. This stamp perfectly fits into the large circle of the Tiny Doilies metal die set.

A close-up of the sentiment, which is among my all-time favorites:
The lovely papers are from the My Mind's Eye Blush collection. I love the deep tones, but still wanted to incorporate a pop of color. I added two Cheery Lynn Mini Fanciful Flourishes for a pretty climbing vine and topped them with sweet Wild Orchid Crafts roses. I created my card base with a Lori Whitlock background shape.

This card is for the June recipient of the I Feel the Love Project. We are using our crafty passion to bring general encouragement, love, and birthday wishes to New Life Shops, an agency who offers shelter, clothing, food, etc. to those in need in their community. What a blessing to create for the families who utilize this agency!
