DT Post by Karen - Bear Hugs!

Happy Saturday, crafty friends! This is Karen from Kaleidoscopic Sparkles with a sweet little card to share with you!

Most of my projects are for charitable purposes and I can always count on Kimberly to have the perfect sentiments, regardless of the recipient's age or difficult circumstance. This one is for a very sick little girl who loves purple. I wanted to send her some teddy bear hugs. :o)

The precious sentiment is from Tiny Tags 3, which is cut out with the coordinating Tiny Tags metal dies. I love the bear(y) greetings on that set! :o) I tucked it beneath Buttercup crinkle ribbon, chosen to reflect ruffles of sunshiny love.

The scalloped bases for the teddy bear stamps are from the Tiny Doilies 2 metal die set. I used the new Fancy Edges- Halloween metal die set to add the stitched design to the top of the middle panel. The beautiful borders were made with the floral die in the Fancy Edges 2 set.

For more information on my card, flutter on over to my blog! Thank you for visiting My Craft Spot and have a blessed weekend! :o)

Guest Designer - Sherrie - Drippy goo treat box!

Hi Everyone!

This is Sherrie from Sherrie Scraps with Passion and I am super excited to be Guest Designing today here at My Craft Spot!

If you follow my blog, you know I am a HUGE fan of My Craft Spot! I have always loved how easy it is to create with her stamps and dies!

Today, I am sharing a fun Halloween treat box idea using some fun new products from

I found this fun 3D Ghost treat box at the Silhouette Store~Design #64969 and cut it on my Cameo. The pattern papers are from Bo Bunny and the solid colored papers are from my scrap bin.

The black panel was embossed with the skeleton scroll folder and adhered in place. I added a drippy gooey border and then added glossy accents for a fun look. 

The cute ghost was inked around the edges with black memento and then spritzed with perfect pearl mist by Ranger.

The face is stamped with PK-691 Make a Monster Face set. I colored the eyes in using copics and added glossy accents. I stamped "boo" using My Craft Spot's new Batty For You stamp set.  The little bats are from the new Halloween Shapes metal die set.
Cute ha?

I filled a cello bag with yummy Halloween candy. I tied on a bow using Trendy Twine's Halloween Grape Licorice and Orange Licorice twine along with a small tag.
The tag is My Craft Spot's Speech Bubbles metal die and I stamped the sentiments using again the new Batty For You stamp set.

Thanks so much for having me Kimberly!
Have a wonderful day!

DT Post by Kate - Hot chocolate warms the heart!

Hello friends! This is Kate from Small Bits of Paper. Today I am sharing a fun little gift idea. Here in Central Ontario (Canada), the temperatures are certainly getting cooler and leaves are beginning to turn their glorious array of colours. Hot chocolate season is on its way!!

I started my project with the K-Cup cutting file from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons and then added a layered frame for my sentiment.

I chose to use the White Christmas stamp set for my treat box - both for the sentiment and for the snowflakes stamped with Versa Mark on my sentiment frame.

Once my box was assembled, I embellished it with some natural jute string and some little pearls.

Of course, I couldn't forget the hot chocolate itself for the inside, and tucked in a couple of cups of mint hot chocolate. Yum!

Thanks so much for visiting My Craft Spot today. Have a wonderful day!!

Halloween Tags

I like to take Halloween treats to a few of my friends during October.  These fun little tags will be perfect attached to treat bags!

MCS Supplies
Metal DiesHalloween Shapes (ghost), Fancy Edges - Halloween (spider web border), Ornate Labels

Don't you just love that spider web border?!

For the chalk effect, I first used Versamark watermark ink to stamp the sentiment.  Then, I sprinkled a fine white embossing powder over the sentiment and heat embossed.  You can see that I didn't get all of the embossing powder off, which is a fun effect.  I used a white ink pad that is a little older (less juicy) to ink the edges and then got some white ink on my finger to rub around here and there.

Have a great day!
