MTE: Guest Designer

Fall is here...well, not in CA exactly.  It's still hot but I'll just pretend we have east coast weather and changing leaves while I post this.  With fall comes the start of the holiday season.  Can you believe it!?  Since fall seems to be on everyone's minds lately I made a card that is quite fitting.  To tell you the truth I'm not exactly ready for summer to be over but oh well, guess no more beach cards for a few months.  Darn!

Awhile back I was invited to be a guest designer for My Thoughts Exactly which is an up and coming stamp company.  I have designed for them once so far back in July.  I made an ice cream cone waterfall card that you can see here.  For today's project I made a card as well.

I used the Sweet Thoughts stamp set from My Thoughts Exactly for the "give thanks" sentiment.  The best thing about these stamps is that you can mix and match words and phrases.  It gives you so many options!  You can even mix and match between the sets.  They stamp so clearly and sharp and clean up so easily.  I highly recommend trying a set out.  I think you'll fall in love!

The paper comes from DCWV's Ghost's and Goblins Stack and the Harvest Gathering Stack.  I used kraft paper for the base.    

I used two different twine colors from Trendy Twine, dark blue with light blue and white and also the Thanksgiving Bakers Twine, as a border or frame.  The colors came together quite well.

I finished of the card with two cute little buttons adorned with some hemp twine.

I hope you enjoyed this card.  Come back tomorrow for the SVG Attic Spook-tacular Blog Hop where you will get to see some great Halloween projects!

I love that blue shade placed in that pretty card:) I feel the same about summer, but for some reason I always associate shorter days with more sleep, yah fat chance huh? Anyways it's lovely and you did a great job with Alyssa's stamps:)


This card is absolutely beautiful! I love the big leaf and the twine.
