My Thoughts Exactly October release: Surprise Pumpkin
It's October 1st, which means it's time for another My Thoughts Exactly Stamps release, and this month 2 stamps sets are released just in time for your Halloween projects! :-)
I took a lot of pics and you'll be here for a while so settle down comfortably... ;-)
For my card today I used svg files from SVGs by Bee. This cute little pumpkin-cat combo is called Pumpkin has a surprise...
And here is the surprise! The card contains a little cat slider...
Here he is if you take him completely out... :-)
The card opens like a regular shaped card...
Now for the stamps, there are 2 sets released this month and I used both on my project. You won't believe the number of sayings those sets contain. They are perfect for scrapbook pages, cards, and all those little treat bags projects!... :-)
The sign on the front of my card comes from the Fright Night Phrases set.
This cute little tag attached to the cat's neck comes from the Ghostly Greetings set.
The inside sentiment comes from the Ghostly Greetings set also. And let's not forget the cute little bat smiley that comes from the Fright Night Phrases set.
I hand cut the little leaf out of felt and used some twisted Lime Trendy Twine to add some details and make little tendrils.
(To make the tendrils, simply wrap some wax paper around a pencil, drench some twine in glue and curl it around the pencil, let it dry, then fight with it to remove it from the damn wax paper, and voila!! :-D)
Each stamps set is $15 (shipping included) but if you buy both sets together as the Halloween Bundle, it's only $25! :-)
And to reward you for reading all the way till the bottom of this long post... My Thoughts Exactly is giving away a $5 gift certificate to one lucky commenter on this post! (that's like 33% off any one stamp set...). This time I ask that you either become a follower of my blog here, or that you follow me on Facebook. If you do both, post a 2nd comment for an extra chance to win... I usually don't ask for anything from you but I thought it would be nice for once to acknowledge the people that have been kindly following me! :-) (thanks for your support!)
