MCS Stamp Release Party~DAY 1

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion! 
Hello Everyone!!!
It's finally here~Welcome to My Craft Spot's Stamp Release Sneak Peeks!!!!
This is day 1 of a week long PARTY!! Each day we will be giving you sneak peeks of 5 new stamp sets PLUS 4 new metal die sets and then finish the week with a FUN blog hop on Saturday with prizes at each stop along the way!

Through out the week we will also be incorporating the Small Bow metal die, the Heart Border metal die and the Fancy Edges metal die set into our projects.

So, make sure you head to My Craft Spot to enter for the daily prize and for some fabulous inspiration from the amazing DT.

Today we will be showing you sneak peeks of the new Chalkboard Sentiments
You are gonna love this set! Oh my goodness, I can see so many possibilities!
Here is my project:
My card base is 4 x 4.  The base layer is 3 3/4 x 3 3/4  and then followed with a layer at
3 5/8 x 3 5/8. I added a fun border along the bottom using the new Fancy border  metal dies.
The pattern paper is from My Mind's Eye.
I then took a Paper Studio white blank tag and painted a layer of chalkboard paint to it. I let it dry and then repeated that step 3 times. I stamped the fun sentiment with the new Chalkboard Sentiments stamp set and then heat embossed with white embossing powder. Fun, ha?
I cut the cute balloons at 2 and 2 1/4" from the Create A Critter cartridge and stamped the adorable faces with PKSC 18 June stamp set. I tied on a little bow using Black Jute String for a fun look and finish with a bow using the new Small bow metal die.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Don't forget to stop over at My Craft Spot for more sneak peeks, awesome inspiration by the Design Team and for a chance at today's giveaway :)
Good luck and see you tomorrow for Day 2!!
