Guest Designer for My Craft Spot

Candace's Girly Girl Hop HERE

Hello Everyone! I have some fun cards to share with you today. (and some blog candy too) I was so thrilled to be contacted by the owner of My Craft Spot to create a project with her stamps. Here is a couple of cards made with the Down On the Farm Stamp set:



For the piggy bank card, I found the cutest piggy bank on Cricut's Playtime cartridge. I used my Gpysy to weld the base piece together to form a card. Then I cut the shapes out on my Cricut Expression. When I glued the top layer down, I left a "pocket". This way you can slip some cash into that piggy!

The fish bowl slider card was cut on my Cameo with the Designer Edition Software. I found this file at SVG Cutting Files. I inked the edges of the bowl with Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Broken China. I love the sparkly paper from Coredinations on this sweet fish. She is a perfect pet to cheer a person up,
"Just keep Swimming!"

My Craft Spot has donated a FREE stamp set to one of my followers!
Here is what you need to do:
1. Hop on over to My Craft Spot and pick out your favortie Stamp Set.
2. Come back here and leave a comment on this blog, telling me the name of your favorite stamp set.
How easy is that!

I will pick a random winner on Tuesday, September 24.

Thanks so much Kimberly! It was a pleasure to create with your unique stamps.

VERY cute card! I have been in love with Kimberly's sweet stamps and seam binding forever it seems, so it's hard to pick a favorite. I do really love Butterfly Kisses, but they're all SO sweet. Thanks for this chance to win, and for sharing your sweet project. Congrats on being a GDT for My Craft Spot...enjoy!

Both cards are super cute but my favorite stamp set is the jar full of fall. Maybe b/c I feel fall setting in and am ready for these hot humid days of summer to be gone.

Love both your adorable cards. The piggy bank card is so clever and the fish card is adorable. It is hard to pick a favorite of Kimberly's Stamps, but I have always loved "Candy Corn Kisses" and I love the "Happy Thanksgiving" set.

It is hard to choose a favorite stamp set from My Craft Spot, but I think I'd have to choose Tiny Tags because it's got something for every occasion.
