Trendy Twine -- Thanks Snow Much!

Image
Hello!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.  I've used Frosted Cranberry Trendy Twine, the Let It Snow Stamp Set and a few Frosted Cranberry Sequins on my thank you card today.

I went with the Thanks Snow Much Sentiment from the Let It Snow Stamp Set.  There is absolutely no sign of snow down here in the south though, even though I would love it!  The mittens are cut from my Cricut. I decided to connect the mittens with my Frosted Cranberry Trendy Twine by gluing it along the edge of the white and then tying a bow to join them.  
I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the snowflakes on the mittens and finished it off with the Frosted Cranberry Sequins.
I hope you had a fabulous Christmas and wish you a Happy New Year!

Trendy Twine -- Love Joy Peace

Image
Hello!  It's my turn to post over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  I have a fun treat bag on the blog today using the Cotton Muslin Bags and some Frosted Cranberry Trendy Twine.


I have to admit that I was very nervous about stamping on these bags.  I really did not know if it would actually work.  But I decided to give it a try.  I used some Winnie and Walter border stamps.  I inked up the words in blue MFT Hybrid ink.  It worked so well!  I can't wait to make some more of these!!  Before I stamped, I did a quick iron of the bag to make sure it was a flat surface.


After stamping, I decided to thread my twine through the bag for my ties.  There is already a bag pull on here, but I thought it would be fun to add the matching Frosted Cranberry Trendy Twine.  I found a long plastic needle and started to go through while the other was still in there (in case this didn't work).  I did have to scrunch it up and just pull it through but it worked!  Next time, I woul…

Hello everyone and welcome to the Growing in Unity Blog Hop. We have all been Growing in Unity Gals this year. It was really fun week when I posted so I am very happy to participate in this hop!  You should have arrived from Teri Burson's blog. If not,be sure to check out the list below so you have a chance to win.

Today, I used the new Joy to Go kit for my card.  I stamped the cup and sentiment onto my card stock and used my Zig Clean Color Pens to color it in. I used an edge die from My Favorite things for the scalloped edges. 

To finish it off, I added some Totally Red Trend Twine and some Holly Berry Sequins from Annie's Paper Boutique.  I used some foam tape to pop up the top two layers. This would be a fun card to put a coffee gift card in!

Your next stop is Tammy Murphy.

Trendy Twine -- Happy Thanksgiving!

Image
Happy Thanksgiving!  The Trendy Gals wanted to wish you a happy day.

I made a pretty simple card using the Happy Thanksgiving Stamp Set and the cute pumpkin from the Happy Fall Stamp Set. Then I used the Spiced Pumpkin Trendy Twine and the Autumn Sequins.  I wet a paintbrush and used some orange watercolor to fling some splashes on the card.  
Please head over to Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine to see all the Thanksgiving wishes. I hope you have a wonderful day!

Trendy Twine -- Gobble then Wobble!

Image
Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.  I can't believe it's Thanksgiving tomorrow!  I do love all the Thanksgiving food so this card is perfect for tomorrow :)

I used the fabulous Spiced Pumpkin Trendy Twine to line the outside of the top card layer.  I really like the look of it glued down for a border. The bow is on the bottom side where the twine meets.

I did pop dot the top layer, and add some of the Autumn Sequins from Annie's Paper Boutique. You know I love my sequins :)  The turkey and sentiment are from Unity Stamp Company, and I think the paper is from DCWV.  I colored the turkey with my Zig Clean Color markers.
I hope you all have a fabulous Thanksgiving!!

Happy Birthday Lesley!

Image
Hello everyone!  The Trendy Gals are posting today for our leader's birthday!  Happy Birthday Lesley!!
We all made and sent her birthday cards.  I hope she opened them before now 😉 Lesley is a cat lover so I went with a cute card for her.  I just love this cat that I cut with my Cricut machine.

This cat came from the Create a Critter cartridge.  I always cut them bigger than I think they will be but I thought it was cute anyway.  I used the fabulous Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine along with Raspberry Cupcake Sequins from the store.
Make sure to head over to Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine to see all the fun birthday cards that were made for Lesley!


Happy, happy Birthday Lesley--have a wonderful day!!

Growing in Unity Day 5

Image
Hello! Well, today is my last day as the Growing in Unity Gal.  It's been so fun and I am very grateful that I had this opportunity -- thank you Unity Stamp Company!
Today, I inked up my new Owl I Want kit.  I think I own almost every owl stamp that Unity has ;) They are just so cute!

On this card, I used my Zig Clean Color Markers, Wink of Stella (again), The Paper Studio Christmas Basics, and some Holly Berry sequins from Annie's Paper Boutique. I did pop up the top layer which I cut out with a stitched rectangle die.  
I really do think that I have been getting better with my coloring and my Unity Stamps are the best one to practice with :)
