Guest Designer - Cheryl from Shestamps!

Hello and Happy Friday!   This is Cheryl from Shestamps.    I was so excited to be asked to be a Guest Designer for My Craft Spot.    I purchased some of my favorite crinkle ribbon and baker’s twine from My Craft Spot so I jumped at the opportunity to play with some stamps.   Not only that, but Kimberly has generously offered 1 stamp set (of the winner’s choice) to one of my blog readers.  Now how fun is that?
I decided to try my hand at some Christmas cards using the Christmas-themed sentiment set, Mistletoe.  I paired the stamp set up with some of my favorite Christmas papers, some paint and a Starbucks coffee sleeve to make a set of 4 Christmas cards.

Here is a look at all the cards together.  I created a triangle template to use to cut the triangles.  Each tree is 3 layered triangles all stitched together.   I love the dimension created by the trees and the texture from the star border cut from the coffee sleeve. 

Give away information!
Now for the fun part,  one lucky winner will win 1 stamp set of their choice from My Craft Spot.   So what do you have to do?    Simple!  Take a look at all the clear stamps at My Craft Spot.  Then, stop by the My Craft Spot DT post on my blog and leave your contact information in the linky tool including the name of your favorite My Craft Spot stamp set by Monday, October 1st .   (For example:  Cheryl – Mistletoe or Crafter Jane – Happy Fall)   I will use to pick the winner and post it on my blog on Tuesday, October 2nd.    Kimberly from My Craft Spot will send the stamp set to the winner.

So what are you waiting for?   Go check out all the great stamps at My Craft Spot.
