My Thoughts Exactly May Stamp Release Blog Hop

Good morning everyone! I would like to welcome you to the May Stamp Release blog hop for My Thoughts Exactly. If you have arrived from Jen's blog you're on the right track. If not, hop on over to the Design Team blog to start from the beginning. Today we are showing all of our readers some inspiration using the newly released My Thoughts Exactly stamps. Now before I get to my projects, I have a little sale and giveaway to tell you about! If you spend $25 or more in the stamp store enter code GRAD12 for 12% off your entire order! How awesome is that?!? Make sure you pick up  the stamps you want before they are out of stock. Also one lucky commenter from all the stops along the way will win a $10 gift card to the  stamp store.

Just in case you get lost along the way here is the line up:

Ok now on to my projects. Both cards feature the Mustache On set but in VERY different ways. The first one is fun card that could fit any occasion for a man.

I created a little background paper with the mustache in the Mustache On set. Ugh my vellum tape is not being invisible in this lighting!!! GRRRRR, oh well pretend you can't see it :)

Now my second project is very different and a vert girly application of the Mustache On set, hee hee. Here goes...

I wanted a really fun way of asking my girls to be in my wedding so I created these cute little book boxes filled with 'survival' items for them. All I did to change the masculine stamp to a very feminine application is replace the mustache with the word wedding. I used my sing to write the word wedding in pink glittery gel pen. All the details gave the girls clues about the wedding. Besides the Mustache On set I also used the Interactive Card Phrases set for the little open me tag. So before I gave the girls the book box I gave them a cute little notebook made from coffee sleeves from their favorite coffee shops. The first pages had a personal message to each of them asking them to be apart of our big day. The next two pages had details on the colors and dresses of the wedding.

I just love how they came out! Now do you wanna see their survival items?

There's a little shot of liquor to help calm nerves, a little chocolate, a few re-hydration packets, a pen to takes notes with in the notebooks, and a little pick me up card to their favorite coffee shop. Each survival item has a little tag featuring the Interactive Card Phrases and several other sets. I'll list the other sets in the close up pictures.

The liquor bottle just features the Interactive Card Phrases set. The chocolate tag combines the Interactive Card Phrases set and the Sweet Thoughts set. The pen tag features the More Mini Thoughts set.

The re-hydration packets and notebook just feature the Interactive Card Phrases set. The coffee gift card features three sets; Interactive Card Phrases, Fright Night Phrases, and Sweet Thoughts.

I hope you enjoyed my inspiration today! Now hop on over to Kendra's blog.

Happy crafting!
