Hello Friend

Hello everyone, I'm sharing a fun card with you using three metal die sets available from My Craft Spot. This is being featured over at My Craft Spot today.
The metal dies I used are the Tiny Banners & Toppers, Small Alphabet and the brand new Word Quotes as well as Posy Baker Twine, all are available in the My Craft Spot shop -HERE.

I love the new Word Quote die and have already made several cards using this die. I have made a few photo tutorials on my blog of ideas on how to use this 4 piece metal die set, view the tutorials -HERE.

The banner was fun to make, I just cut 5 of the banners to use from the Tiny Banner metal die set, added a flower on each banner using the Small Alphabet metal die set, the letters were cut from that set as well.
I strung each banner on a piece of Posy Baker Twine.  The bows I tied individually then hot glued them the end of each banner.
I used one die from the Word Quotes die set ... the word "friend" (remember to save the dot for the "i") I cut it directly on a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of patterned paper.
Close up of the banner.
And even closer.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, have a wonderfully creative day!

Here is a quick and easy card using the new Word Quotes metal die set as well as the new Fancy Edges 2 metal die set.
I have photo tutorials of how to use the Word Quotes on this post -HERE. check it out, you'll be glad you did.
 The phone shape was cut using my Silhouette Cameo, I found the shape by just doing a google search.  I added a few lines and dots to the phone and also made a few faint score lines on each end of the phone as well.
I love the loopy phone cord, it's one of the metal dies from the Fancy Edges 2, there are 7 dies in this set, two of which are this loopy border shape, this is the smaller of the two. I did have to bend the loopy border a bit so I could get it to curve where I wanted before gluing it down.

I used the word die "hello" from the Word Quotes metal die set and cut it directly out of the printed patterned paper that was a 4" x 5 1/4" size, layered it directly on black cardstock measuring 4 1/8" x 5 3/8".  The card base was ivory cardstock size 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" folded.
Inside of the card, I added the same loopy border.
And now I'm so excited to give one of the new metal die sets away that I had the privilege of designing, this was donated by Kimberly -thank you Kimberly! Word Quotes metal die set (set of 4) will go to one fantabulous winner, for your chance to win, follow the steps below......

Day 5 -Build A Birthday ~New Release

Hello all my friends, I hope you have followed along this week for the fabulous Stamp Release Party for My Craft Spot, I know the design team and I have really enjoyed sharing many inspiring projects with and today, day 5, the inspiration continues.
We are showing a sneak peek of the new Build a Birthday stamp set designed by Kimberly.
I also used the new Word Quotes and the new Fancy Edges 2 metal die sets for my card as well as Vintage Chocolate Bakers Twine.
All brand new stamp sets and metal dies from this weeks release will be available to purchase tomorrow.
This stamp set is fun to put together different birthday word fonts, the phrases are also cute whimsical phrases as well.
I cut two quote bubbles from the solid Word Quote metal die and layer one over the other, just off setting it to create a shadow effect. I stamped one of the super cute phrases from the Build A Birthday on the bubble.
The star border is perfect on birthday cards, it is from the Fancy Edges 2 metal die set that I designed for My Craft Spot, there are 7 great images in this set. All the little stars that are die cut can be used as confetti, or as I used it places them all over my card.... it just screams "celebration"!!
The "happy" & "birthday" words are two separate stamps from the Build A Birthday stamp set, there are other words to mix and match too... fun stamp set!
I added a bit of Vintage Chocolate bakers twine around my card.
