MCS Feb Release Hop and GIVEAWAY!!!

Good morning! It's finally time to share all the fun new release from My Craft Spot! You can check out the entire new release HERE, and shop to your hearts content! If you just hopped here from Robin - you are in the right spot! Other wise, hop on over to My Craft Spot to start at the beginning. Kimberly has provided a prize for each of us along the hop to giveaway - more on that at the bottom of this post! Here is what I made today:


I used a few of the fun new releases for this card. First up - those fabulous Big Words Metal Dies! I cut the white cardstock using the Scrapping Life metal die - the die cut the words in the center of it. I popped out the words, die cut them again in colored cardstock, then puzzle pieced them all together. I also left the inside parts open so the pattern paper shows through. I think it gives such a fun effect!


Next, I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment from Big Sentiments 2 on some brown cardstock that I cut with the Straight Banner Metal Dies. Attached that with foam adhesive, then attached the entire panel with foam adhesive to my cardbase. 


My pattern paper is from an October Afternoon Christmas paper pad (love versatile papers!). I added a couple of MME enamel dots to finish it off - then I mailed it to my brother for his birthday...a week late (oops!)


And...I get to give away a set of these fabulous Big Words Metal Dies today! Make sure and leave me a comment before you head to your next stop - Karen


Here is the entire hop lineup in case you get lost along the way:

Great creative job!!
