Day 4 of the My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party!

Hey Ya'll,
Welcome to DAY 4 of the My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party!  Today is a celebration of a VERY CLEVER stamp set!  It's called Tiny Tags!  This set has something for just about every occasion plus the cute little tag shape so you can double and triple stamp!  It's WONDERFUL!
 For the first project, I used several different sentiments from the set after cutting out these cute little label shapes from CTMH AP.  I also used pink baker's twine on each tag.  I simple cut some paper into little rectangles and wrapped fun sized chocolate bars.  Then added the little tags.  This is super easy and a great way to use these stamps!
 For this design, I used a bunch of different flower shapes from CTMH AP.  I cut a bunch of circles at 1 inch and then stamped away with the different versions of appreciation that are included in the set.  These are all used for the centers of the flowers!  Fun, huh?
 This is actually very easy to do once all of your prep work is out of the way.  Simply cut your shapes out first.  Circles at one inch, flowers at 1.80 and 1.40.  When the flower layers are cut, ink the edges.  Then using a stylus, roll the stylus around on the top of the flower shape on a piece of foam or an old mouse pad.  This will curve all of the petals up to make the flower.  Using paper glue, stick the layers together.  Then add a 3D adhesive in the center of each and add your stamped circles.  Using a marker, I added some stems to the base mat.  Starting at random, glue a few flowers directly to the mat with paper glue.  Then start adding more flowers with 3D foam tape until the bouquet is full and beautiful.  I used a piece of My Craft Spot seam binding ribbon to make the bow on the vase.  They key to making this turn out is to avoid making it perfect.  The more random you add your blossoms, the better it will turn out.
For the inside, I used the Cricut to make the Thanks a Bunch sentiment to go along with the "Bunch of flowers and thanks" on the front.  Get it?  Hee! Hee!
Well, we sure hope you love today's design.  We would love for you to comment and let us know what you think!  Be sure to hop over to My Craft Spot to see what the rest of the design team has to share with you today!  This set will be available to purchase on Saturday during our Stamp Release Party Blog Hop, so be sure to stop by for that.  We will all have prizes and goodies.  My Craft Spot has another special prize to giveaway today, so hop on over!  Thanks so much for visiting again today!
