My Craft Spot: Comment here & win a stamp set!

  I am guesting today at My Craft Spot.  Kimberly invited me to create a card using her "Tiny Banners and Toppers" dies.  YOU can win a My Craft Spot stamp set of your choosing by leaving a comment on my blog post below and type in your favorite My Craft Spot stamp set.

My card:  I chose my papers first and the "HB2U" stickers.  I cut all my layers; I cut the jumbo pennant by hand.  I added two black eyelets to my jumbo pennant and some twine.  Finally I  die cut my tiny banners and their shadows by laying a strip of kraft card stock and a strip of black card stock over the dies and using painter's tape to hold the paper strips in place before rolling through my Big Shot.  Yep, I made all of these little banners in just one trip through my Big Shot!


Look at all of these great little dies:
  The larger banners can be used on their own or as shadows behind the smaller banners.  The banners also have toppers...how cool is that?  I used the larger banners (black card stock) as shadows behind the smaller (kraft card stock):
  Look how beautiful they cut!

Supplies:
paper:  My Mind's Eye "Kraft Funday Everyday Fun"
banner dies:  My Craft Spot "Tiny Banners and Toppers"
twine:  My Mind's Eye "All Is Bright" twine (you could also use My Craft Spot "Strings and Things")
eyelets:  Making Memories
stickers:  Rebecca Sower Nostalgiques

  Now visit My Craft Spot and peruse the stamp sets and choose YOUR favorite set.  Leave a comment on my blog stating your favorite set by midnight EST on Friday, October 4th and I will choose one lucky winner on Saturday, October 5th.  I hope you win!

Happy Tuesday!

Very lovely card! The kraft colors seem to go perfectly with those little banners! I oowed and awed through the stamp sets at My Craft Spot and it was a very difficult choice, but i picked 'Joy To The World' as my favorite. All the sentiments are so beautifully-scripted! Thanks for the chance to win! :)

Great card - I love the dies you used and the colour scheme. My favorite stamp set would be With Deepest Sympathy. I seem to need a lot of sympathy cards lately. Thanks for the chance to win.

I like your blog - you've been blogging since 2007 - that's awesome! I just started my blog in June so I'm a newbie.

Have a great day!
