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 FIVE new stamp sets and FOUR 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 my teamies! The party will conclude with a blog hop celebration on Saturday, where the full release is revealed with prizes at every stop! Kimberly's new goodies will also be available for purchase beginning that day. :o)

This release is all about Fall, from harvest beauty to Halloween fun. Today we are featuring the new Halloween Potions stamp set! (Throughout the week we will also be incorporating the new metal die sets into our projects.)

I made a fun cauldron treat box for my mom, which also includes cuts from TWO of the new metal die sets! My mom already stole this for midnight chocolate emergencies. ;)
My treat box is a cut file from Treasure Box Designs' Treat Box Trio. Both sentiments are from the NEW Halloween Potions stamp set. The drippy cauldron concoction was made with one of the NEW dies in the Fancy Edges- Halloween set. The little bat is from the NEW Halloween Shapes metal die set.

Can you see the crackle? It was hard to photograph. I used Tim Holtz distress crackle paint on the cauldron (Black Soot) and sentiments (Clear Rock Candy). 
I love (and appreciate) how many of Kimberly's sentiments fit into existing metal dies! This one fits perfectly in the Tiny Doilies set. The stamped border is from the Build A Birthday set, which I use often. Her extras are always lovely. I wrapped the box in Parrot Green and Purple jute string
Upon discovering that my second sentiment nestled perfectly in the Tiny Tags metal dies, the witch's sparkly pointy shoe begged me to tie it there! :o)
Be sure to zip on over to My Craft Spot to see the marvelous creations from the team! Leave a comment on Kimberly's post for a chance to win today's daily prize: sequins in Perfectly Purple, Toadally Green, and Creamiscle Orange!
I'll see you tomorrow for Day 2... and my long-awaited return to Copics! Thank you for visiting and have a blessed day. :o)
