Trendy Twine Post Day--Smile!

Hi everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! With Trendy Twine today.  I have a super quick and easy card to show you using the Orangesicle Trendy Twine today.  I LOVE this twist!


I really wasn't sure what I wanted to make today so this is what came out.  I do love making the twine a focal point and this turned out fun.  The twine wanted to slip down, so I did tape it a lot on the back to hold it in place.


The die and stamp are from My Creative Time.  I die cut the Smile three times to give it a bit more dimension.  That pattern paper is from Echo Park Dots 6x6 paper pad and the pearls are Doodlebug Tangerine Mini Pearls.



Don't forget that all 6 original Trendy Twine Colors are on sale this month and you can even get a six pack mini of those too.  You can see lots of inspiration over at the Twine It Up! Facebook Page.  I hope to see you posting over there :)


Have a fabulous day!

Smile!

Hello again!  Today I have one of my favorite cards I made to submit that didn't get picked up--I was a bit sad about this one.  I am really loving the shaped cards and have a few more in mind that I'd love to make.


Items used:

  • Wild Card 2 Cricut Cartridge -- Hot Air Balloon card cut at 11 inches
  • Bazzill paper--Brown, Blue and Yellow
  • American Crafts paper--Pink and white
  • Ranger Frosted Lace Stickles
  • The Paper Studio Gemstones
  • My Pink Stamper stamp
  • Close to My Heart Ink
I used the stickles all around the edges of the cloud.  The clouds are actually on the base of the card which did confuse me a bit when I first cut it out.   This card did make me smile :)

Have a Happy Day!

A Blue Birthday

Hi everyone!  There are several birthdays this month in my family and today I have one of the cards I made. I used some of my home-made enamel dots on this card.


Supplies used:

  • Blue Berry Trendy Twine
  • My Creative Time:
    • Happy Thoughts Stamp and die set
    • Stitched 3x4 Journal Die
  • Home-made enamel dots made from Perler Beads
  • Stampin' Up! Ink

This card was for  my mother-in-law and I threw it together the day before I needed to give it to her.  I really need to make a bunch of birthday cards one weekend and keep them on hand :)

My Creative Time Guest Designer

Hi everyone!  I am thrilled to be a guest designer today over at My Creative Time.  I LOVE all of Miss Emma's products and have the best time playing with them.

I used several products from My Creative Time--I just love how they all mix and match so well.


Products used:



I am really liking the circle cards so I used the largest die from the Bunch of Fun Circle Dies to make the base.  The next two circle layers are also from that set.  Then, I wanted to make the butterflies stand out, so I cut out two of each from Pretty Butterfly and Dragonfly Dies and pop dotted them together and pop dotted them to the card after stamping the sentiment.  I finished it off with the pearls around the scallops.


To be honest, there were several variations of this card. I really wanted to have something great to show you today, so I hope you like what I ended up with here :)  

Thank you Emma for letting me guest design for you!!

I hope everyone has a happy day!!
