Give Thanks for Great Home Decor!

The Designer paper that Stampin' Up! creates is always amazing. However, it's hard to use it sometimes because I don't want to ruin it or cut it up. Today, I'm showing you how I used one of my favorite papers from the Autumn Spice Collection:


Stamps: Day of Gratitude
Paper: Autumn Spice Designer Series Paper, More Mustard Cardstock, Old Olive Cardstock, Naturals Ivory Cardstock
Ink: Cajun Craze, Old Olive, Early Espresso
Accessories: Hemp Twine, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border, 1/4" Early Espresso Ribbon, Paper Snips, Vintage Brads, Big Shot, Alphabet Simple Letters

I bought this plate/wall hanger at a local store on clearance (how else). I measured the inside and then added the paper. Fortunately, I was inspired by the Stampin' Addicts Technique Challenge last week to use the new Dotted Scallop Border Punch and weave my ribbon through it. I think it adds a cool texture to the frame. Give Thanks is one of my favorite saying for Fall decor and it fit nicely! Oh yeah, I also sponged more mustard over my stamping to give the paper a more mellow look.

Happy Stamping!
