Trendy Bakers Twine -- Twine & Tag

Image
Hello all!  I'm Helen posting at Twine it Up! with Trendy Twine. Today I am sharing a Twine & Tag post today.  I used Black Licorice Trendy Twine, a Large Black Tag-ItsHappy Halloween Stamp Set,  Black Licorice Trendy Page Dots2x8 Zip Lock Bags, and some Lemon Tart Sequins--just the white/clear.

I found these cute Halloween pencils to use and searched Cricut Design Space for a skeleton.  This one was perfect to print then cut to put on my Large Black Tag-It. But first, I stamped the Boo! from the Happy Halloween Stamp set and heat embossed with white powder.

Then I added my skeleton, the Black Licorice Trendy Page Dot, the sequins from Lemon Tart, and a fun tail with my Black Licorice Trendy Twine.  I used some double sided tape to stick the tag to the top of the 2x8 Zip Bag.
Have a wonderful day!

Trendy Bakers Twine--Cute Witch!

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine. Can you believe it's October?!  Here in Georgia though, we still have 90 plus degree temperatures. I am so ready for fall temps!  Today, I have a cute Halloween Treat to share with you using Black Licorice Trendy Twine, a Candy TinBlack Licorice Trendy Page Dots, and the Cute Witch Printables.

I used some Hershey Nuggets to fill my Candy Tin. They fit pretty well in a single layer.  Then I doubled up my Black Licorice Trendy Twine and wrapped it both ways around the tin like you would do on a present.

The Cute Witch Printables come in a sheet of 11 tags. I printed out a page on cardstock and then used my paper cutter to cut one out.  Then I rounded the corners, punched a hole, and added a Black Licorice Trendy Page Dot.

To finish it off, I just added the tag to the Black Licorice Trendy Twine and tied a pretty bow.  This was a quick and easy treat to make. I did add some Clear Wink of Stella to the stars a…

Celebrate!

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over on the Action Wobble Blog today and I'm sharing a cute wobbling ant card.

I used this cute ant image as a print then cut.  Then I used Glossy Accents on the eyes, love to do that eyes, and I added Wink of Stella to the apple he's holding.  After stamping the sentiment, I wrapped the fun Cherry Licorice Trendy Twine around and added a bow.

After attaching the layers, I added my Action Wobble to the ant and then added some red and black gems.
Have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Hello Llama!

Image
Hello everyone! I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  Today I have a cute llama card for you using Aqua Licorice Trendy Twine.

I love all things llama so I was very happy to find this SVG in my Cricut Design Space that matched the Aqua Licorice Trendy Twine!  I glued my Trendy Twine around the edge of the oval die cut and added a bow at the bottom.  I love that look.

I took a small hello die and cut it out of black card stock three times to layer it.  Then I added some Clear Wink of Stellar to make it sparkle like the background paper. To adhere it, I found an old tube of dimensional glue in my stash.  Not sure how good it really is, but it worked.  I wanted the word to be over the twine but then not flat against the paper.

I did add a bit of Wink of Stella to the llama too.  It's just a fun card!
Have a great day!

Happy Stamptember!

Hello everyone!  It's Stamptember--a fun month-long stamping celebration by Simon Says Stamp with fun new stamps and dies, including some exclusives.

I was very fortunate to be one of 100 to be chosen to be sent a new Stamptember Stamp set.  I got the CZ Design Stamps My Zombie Boo Stamps.  As soon as I saw they had dies I could buy, I ordered them to use with the stamps.  I love what a clean die cut came out.


This is my first card right now.  I colored several images but just got the dies yesterday and threw this together last night.  I'll show more next week!  
Its a pretty basic card and very monochromatic.  But it fits the theme LOL! I used grays for the zombie and rocks and the sentiment is from the same set as well.  The paper is from my Halloween stash and I thought fit it pretty well. I made some black ink spatters with black Tim Holtz Distress ink pad.  Simple, but I liked it :)
I know I'll be seeing what other fun goodies I need from Simon Says Stamp this month!

Trendy Bakers Twine--Boo!

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine. It's September so there is a new color of the month Aqua Licorice Trendy Twine!  For my project today, I also used a 2x2 Candy Cube, Black Licorice Tag-ItsHappy Halloween Stamp Set, a Blue Berry Sequin, and a Aqua Midnight Trendy Page Dot.

I found the cute Monster Hershey Kisses this weekend and new I could use the teal colored ones with my Trendy Twine.  They are so cute!  I filled my 2x2 Candy Cube with pretty much all the blue ones in the bag.  Then I wrapped my Aqua Licorice Trendy Twine around the box one way. 

For the tag, I stamped the Boo! from the Happy Halloween Stamp Set three times with embossing ink and added white embossing powder.  It looks so good on the Black Tag-It that I trimmed down to 2 inches long so it would not hang over too much on the top of the box.

I added one Blue Berry Sequin and then the Aqua Midnight Trendy Page Dot to the top of the tag.  I attached it to the Trendy Twine a…
