MHKD August Release: Thankful Thoughts

Hello, friends! Welcome to Day 3 of MHKDesigns' August Release Party. Head on over to the MHK Designs ETSY Store for lots of lovely vintage designs that suit all crafting styles.

This month, MHKDesigns is releasing FIVE new digital stamp sets. Mynn has also added more Digital Paper Bundles that coordinate perfectly with her digi stamps. These are available for purchase NOW at the MHK Designs ETSY Store. 

As a special treat to celebrate the MHK Designs August 2016 Release, Mynn is giving away sets from this release. More on how to win at the end of this post.

Today we have this a fun and fruity set called Thankful Thoughts.

I wanted to make a card with a home-spun feel and a patchwork background does the job. So I used scraps from Glorious Garden and Autumnal Accents and pulle it together with some twine and faux stitching and inked edges.

Here's a closer look at the bountiful cornucopia. I coloured the image with alcohol markers and added a dollop of Glossy Accents on each of the red fruits in the foreground.

  5. Such a lovely patchwork background, Asha!! I must use this idea to use some of my scraps!! Love how you distressed any piece! And the faux ege is a perfect touch! Also in the layer with the image there is a great idea: leave the space for the sentiment in the frame, with a so unusual shape, this adds interest!! The cornucopia looks great with your colouring. Beautiful autumnal card!
