My Craft Spot Mini Release Day 1: Daisy Dies!

Hello, my sweet friends! It's time for the surprise My Craft Spot mini release! :o)

Kimberly was just too excited to wait for the next full release to share TWO of her new metal die sets! Join us today and tomorrow as we showcase these new goodies! Kimberly is offering an amazing prize each day, with the winners randomly chosen from comments left on the My Craft Spot and Design Team blogs. The more blogs you leave a little love, the more chances you have to win. :o) She is also picking a winner from customer orders! (Prize details below!)

Today we are showcasing the new Flowers- Daisy metal dies! For my project, I made a friendship card for someone I hold near and dear to my heart. She has helped me through some trying times lately. :o)
These daisy dies are already one of my favorite of all the amazing My Craft Spot goodies! There are so many options and are such fun to use.
Each layer of my flowers is popped up with foam tape for dimension, inked with Victorian Velvet distress ink, and was given a coating of elegant shimmer with the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush (clear). The sparkle is stunning in person... just not so easy to photograph. The beautiful leaf dies are inked with Forest Moss and embossed with the Victoria Cuttlebug folder. The scalloped pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts, while the others are from Recollections.

When I saw the new dies, my heart instantly went to friendship. The sweet sentiment is from the Clock Time stamp set. I stamped around it with an Ornate Labels- Christmas frame and cut it out with the coordinating Ornate Labels metal dies.
The beautiful papers are from Authentique's Classique: Pretty collection. My base is created with Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles. The center popped-up frame was made with Floral Ovals and Classic Ovals- Large. I sprinkled several little sections of pearls nestled within the frame and flowers. (It's hard to be intentionally 'sporadic' in placement!)

Here are both new sets of metal dies! :o)

Kimberly is giving away a $15 gift certificate EACH DAY of this mini release, randomly chosen from comments left on our blogs!
Gift Certificate - $15
Additionally, since these new goodies are available for purchase right now, Kimberly is picking a winner from customer orders for a $20 gift certificate!
