Trendy Twine -- Happy Halloween

Hello everyone! I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today, and I have a shaker card to share using Grape Licorice Trendy Twine and some Grape Licorice Batty - Halloween Sequins.  This is now my 2nd shaker card ever!

After cutting out the circle for the shaker window, I decided that the Grape Licorice Trendy Twine would look good around the outside.  Then, after adding the sequin mix and the cutout bats to the card, I lined the outside of the top base with the twine too.  I think it made it look a bit better.  

After it was done, the cutout bats were still a bit plain.  so I pulled out my silver Wink of Stella pen and sparkled them.  I like how that look and you can see it in the picture above that I took when the card was lying flat.  I also added a few sequins to the card and the banner at the bottom.

Be sure to pick up the fun Halloween twists while they are on special at the store.  You don't have to just use them for the holiday :)

Have a fabulous day!

Hello Fall with the new APB Stamps

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today using the fun, new Annie's Paper Boutique Hello Fall Planner Stamp Set.  They are so super cute!

These are perfect for Fall and Thanksgiving and you don't just have to use them in your planner!  So I made a Happy Thanksgiving card to show you.

I stamped all four image stamps along the row of my paper and colored them in with my Zig Watercolor markers.  Then I lined up the Happy and Thanksgiving along the top. I also used some of the yummy new Spiced Pumpkin Trendy Twine and a few sequins from the Autumn Sequin mix you can find in the store.

The pattern paper is from DCWV that matched one of the stamps pretty well so I just had to use it on this card.  The top layer is mounted with some foam tape.  

Make sure to get a set of these fun stamps from Annie's Paper Boutique in time for Thanksgiving!!

Have a fabulous Day!

Tinsel Tangle

Hello everyone!

I'm just posting a quick card so that I can Hop with Unity tonight.  I used the cute Tinsel in a Tangle set.   I love penguins so I just had to get this cutie.

I used a silver Wink of Stella Pen for the silver stars on the tinsel.  I thought the silver glitter paper wet well with this and helped tie it together along with the red and silver stars.

Have a great day!

On My Mind

Hello everyone!  Today I have a quick card for you that I made last night for the Unity Blog Hop.  This really was a pretty quick card to make.

I used the adorable Penguin Pals stamp set from Unity.  I really love this penguin with the glasses :)  To get the pink splatter, I covered up my penguin (learned from experience with that) and used a wet paintbrush with a bit of ink and tapped it from above so the water/ink landed on the card base.  I think I learned that from a Unity Quick Tip video :)

To finish it off, I added some sequins and fun Pink Licorice Trendy Twine

Have a great day!!

Trendy Twine - Spooktacular Treats

Hello everyone!  It's my turn to post over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.  We are featuring the Skinny Candy Bags this month along with a few of the Halloween Trendy Twine twists.  I am using Grape Licorice Trendy Twine today.

I decided to use some cute Halloween pencils in my Skinny Candy Bags.   They were in a pack of 10 for $1 in the Target Dollar Spot.  I picked the pencils that had black and purple to go along with my Grape Licorice Trendy Twine.

The tags are cut from my Cricut and I stamped them with some Unity Stamps.  I colored in the wings and ears in black, and the teeth in white.  The I used my Wink of Stella clear pen to add glitter to the ears, wings and eyes.  Lastly, I tied the Grape Licorice Trendy Twine around several times, added the tag, and tied a bow.

Be sure to visit Annie's Paper Boutique to get these fun bags and twine twists while they are on special this month!

Pretty Darn Awesome!

Hello!  I just have a quick card I made today.  I used an adorable penguin stamp and sentiment from Unity Stamps Penguin Pals set.  I can't wait to play with the other penguins in the set!

I added the fabulous Black Licorice Trendy Twine to the top and a bit of gray shading with my Zig Clean Color markers.  It was a pretty fast card to put together.

I'm entering this in the Unity Be Inspired challenge.  I based it off the sketch but stood the card up and put the sentiment at the top.

Have a great day!

Holly Jolly Christmas

Hello everyone!  Today I have a card that I made for the current Unity Be Inspired Challenge.  I loved the sentiment kit this month so had to have it :)  This is the only card I made on World Card Making Day yesterday.  I hope to make some today though.

The kit is Believe in the Magic.  I followed the card sketch for the challenge but flipped it around.  I also used Gold and Clear Wink of Stella pens and used my Zig markers to color in. Here's a close up of the ornaments where I used the Wink of Stella--You still can't see it all but I think there's a bit of sparkle on the green ball ornament on the left.  The gold toppers sparkle too.

I'll probably make a few more of these -- they were easy to do once I figured out what I wanted to do.

Have a great day!

Trendy Twine and Batty Sequins

Hello everyone!  The Trendy Twine Design Team is introducing the new Batty Sequins today!! Sequins, along with Trendy Twine, are something I use all the time.  And I just love having some fun Halloween sequins to use.

I got to use the Grape Licorice Batty Sequins along with the fabulous Grape Licorice Trendy Twine. I also made my first ever shaker card.

The sequins are in the star shapes and then I also used some on the card and sentiment tag.  I learned a lot about making a shaker card and the number one thing is to get different foam.  I used some clear pop up dots which seemed like a great idea, but foam tape that I can cut down will be much better next time.

Now, be sure to head over to Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine and make sure to visit everyone's blogs--they have some amazing projects to show you today!!  Plus, there are two other sequin mixes that you just need to have. 

Visit Annie's Paper Boutique to get these fun sequins!!
