Congratulations to Beth!

Hello everyone!  The Trendy Twine Design Team (current and alumni) and some of this year's guest designers are posting today to send love to Beth to celebrate the birth of her baby girl Autumn! We created cards to send her with our best wishes.

I used Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine for my card.


The cute baby toy is an image from Cricut Design Space.  I flattened it so I could print it, then cut it out.  It makes it so easy! I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the antenna, eyes, mouth, and dots at the bottom.  Then on the eyes, I added dots of glossy accents.


 I glued my Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine around the oval cut out and added my bow. Then I pop dotted the oval and the baby toy onto my card base. 


Be sure to head over to Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine to see all the cards and congratulate Beth!  I hope she enjoys all the posts and the cards when she gets them 😊


Have a fabulous day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Sunshine Treats

Hello! I'm posting over at Twine it Up! with Trendy Twine. Today I made some quick treats to show you.  I used Orange Limeade Trendy TwineOrange and Green Chevron Treat BagsChoose Happy Stamp SetWhite Tag-Its and some Trendy Page Dots.


These Chevron Treat Bags would be great with some homemade cookies in them. I didn't have any of those so I put small Hershey Bars in them LOL! They really are good for any kind of treat. Next, I folded the top and punched two holes for my Orange Limeade Trendy Twine.


I used a die to cut out a sun and stamped the Hello Sunshine from the Choose Happy Stamp Set in the middle.  Then I used dimensional tape to put it on the White Tag It. I added my Trendy Page Dots and added to my bags tied with a bow.


Have a fabulous day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Sending You Sunshine!

Hello!  I'm posting over at Twine it Up with Trendy Twine using the Orange Limeade Trendy Twine and a few Twisted Lime Sequins.


This was an easy card to make.  I did a print then cut image on my Criut.  Then I just added a bit of Clear Wink of Stella to the sun rays. Then I picked a lime green cardstock and an orange pattern paper than I stamped my sentiment directly on with black ink.  


I wrapped my Orange Limeade Trendy Twine around the top base and added a bow.  The cute sun is on with foam tape for some dimension. Lastly, I added a few Twisted Lime Sequins.

Have a fabulous day!

MFT Summer School -- Complimentary Colors


I didn't have much in the way of MFT Stamps that would work well with this lesson.  So I used paper mostly to show my colors orange and blue.  I used MFT Musical Dies cut out in blue and a MFT Stamp to show my orange in the sentiment.  The scallop mat is from MFT Blueprints 1.

(not the best picture, but it's late)

This is has been a lot of fun!

MFT Stamps Summer School -- Repetition

Hello!  Here is my card for My Favorite Things Summer School -- Repetition.  I'm hopeful to get the last two days done too :)


I used MFT Full of Sunshine Stamp set, Hello Die-namics, and the Radiant Sun Die-Namic.  The ink is also MFT Pineapple Hybrid Ink.  

The sunshine die has foam tape to give the card some dimension.  For the hello, I added clear Wink of Stella and then covered it all with Glossy Accents.  I haven't used that in a while and love the way it turned out.

Have a great day!
Helen
