My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party- Merry & Bright

Hello, my sparkly friends! Welcome to Day 5 of the My Craft Spot stamp release party! Be sure to come back tomorrow for the celebratory BLOG HOP, where inspiration and prizes will be in abundance! You'll also see the new goodies in their entirety, which will be available for purchase! Yay! You won't want to miss it! :o)

Today we are showcasing the Merry & Bright stamp set! This collection has a wonderful variety of festive greetings, large and small. This entire release is a delight!

My card today features two stamps from this set! This is another creation made in advance for the I Feel the Love Project to spread love to children (and their parents) spending Christmas in the hospital.
I love this set so much that I had to squeeze in multiple sentiments! :o) The cutie pie is Christmas Star from Lili of the Valley, which I colored with Copics. She seemed a perfect vessel to deliver holiday cheer! Polar White Flower Soft and Star Dust add magical touches.
How fun that Kimberly designed one in the shape of a tree! It was love at first sight with this sweet one. I used Memento ink in Cottage Ivy for the tree and Rich Cocoa for the trunk. A heavenly glow (Tim Holtz Scattered Straw) trims my tree, along with a sprinkling of pearls. (I just can't stop myself.) The middle panel is bordered with a die from the Fancy Edges 2 set, with Snow White crinkle ribbon lining the top. (My bow is centered with a Wild Orchid Crafts scalloped pearl.)
This delightful sentiment was stamped in Cottage Ivy and Ladybug Red inks for extra festivity.  I always appreciate Kimberly's varied sentiment sizes to fit so many different areas! There can never be too much joy tucked into a Christmas card. :o)

My image is layered upon Spellbinders Labels Four and Gold Labels Four dies and surrounded with my beloved Wild Orchid Crafts flowers. Flower Soft extends the snowy scene to my little bouquet, which I've accented with a WOC crown pearl stick pin and a pearly heart stick pin. The corner and top border detailing are coordinating Joy! Crafts dies: Frame and 3 Corners and Ornate Edge, respectively. The scattered snowflakes are from Cheery Lynn. My papers are from Kaisercraft's North Pole collection and I finished it off with machine stitching.

Flutter on over to the My Craft Spot blog to be inspired by my fabulous 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!
Thank you for visiting and have a blessed day! I'll see you tomorrow for the BLOG HOP! :o)
