Trendy Bakers Twine -- Llama Tell You Something

Hello everyone!  I'm posting at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  Today I have a cute llama card to share with you using Pinkberry Sorbet Trendy Twine and some Pink Diamonds Sparkling Gems.


This was a super easy card to put together.  I used an edge die to cut my white base.  Next I glued my Pinkberry Sorbet Trendy Twine along the bottom.  


I stamped my sentiment in Pink and used foam tape to attach my llama and then added my Pink Diamonds Sparkling Gems

Have a great day!

Amazing Day!

You can get this fabulous twine for $8 and free shipping now through May 12.  I also used the Choose Happy Stamp set, and Chocolate Truffle and Twisted Lime Sequins

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Hello Sunshine Treats

Hello everyone! I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.  It's a new month and that means a fun new twine color--Pinkberry Sorbet Trendy Twine!  I also used the Small Treat Sacks, Pink Tag-Its, the Choose Happy Stamp Set, and some Raspberry Cupcake Sequins.


To make my tags, I cut out these adorable bees using Print then Cut on my Cricut.  I stamped my sentiment from the Choose Happy Stamp Set on my Pink Tag-Its.  Then I added the cute bees using dimensional tape, and added the Raspberry Cupcake Sequins.  


Finishing it off, I used my Pinkberry Sorbet Trendy Twine to the top for the tag topper.  I filled my Small Treat Sacks with the heart candy (yes, a brand new bag from valentine's day LOL), folded the top down twice and used some small, pink clothespins to add my tag.  It was a fun way to add the tag and the recipient can reuse the tag!

These were pretty easy to create and the bags hold a lot of candy. 
Have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Llama Celebrate You

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine sharing a card for you today using Pink Limeade Trendy Twine and Twisted Lime Sequins.  


I just love llamas so I print then cut this cute llama on my Cricut.  I changed part of the blanket on the llama to green.  It was supposed to more of a lime green but I guess my printed didn't like that LOL. Then I decided to die cut an oval for my llama to be pop dotted onto.  Before I did that, I glued down my Pink Limeade Trendy Twine to it.  The twine looks darker since it's next to the pink paper.

I added my sentiment to a die cut strip, added some more twine to the side and pop dotted it on the card.  To finish is all off, I added some Twisted Lime Sequins

Have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Happy Easter!

Happy Easter everyone!  Today the Trendy Gals have some Easter projects and here is mine.  You can head over to Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine to see the other projects.

I started with this adorable little chick in an egg from Miss Kate Cuttables. Instead of printing and cutting, I cut all the layers with the different colored cardstock, added some ink to some of the edges and some Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter to certain spots.


I cut a base layer and used some green ink to splatter it on.  Then I glued my Totally Limeade Trendy Twine along the bottom edge of the white base and added a bow. I stamped my sentiment and added some yellow sequins from the Yellow Tart Sequins.  I did use pop dots to add my chick.


I hope you have a very Happy Easter!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Twine & Tag

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up with Trendy Twine today.  Once a month, one of the DT will be focusing on Twine & Tags.  I just love these Large Tag-It's. So I picked the vibrant Lemon Tag-It and the Bumblebee Trendy Twine.  I also used the matching Bumblebee Sequins and a Black Polka Dot Trendy Page Dot.


The 3D bee stickers were my inspiration for this tag.  They were so cute so I grabbed my Lemon Large Tag-It to start.  Then I decided to die cut the hello three time and layer it for some dimension.  I used a Spectrum Noir clear glitter pen over the black paper to make it sparkle.


I arranged my die cut and bees and then added my Bumblebee Sequins to the tag along with my Black Polka Dot Trendy Page Dot.  Then I added my Bumblebee Trendy Twine for my tag 'tail'. 
It looked like it needed something more so I took my white gel pen and added white dots around the whole border.  Note:  this would be much easier to do before you add everything LOL!

I hope you enjoyed my tag. Have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Happy Day Treats

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.  It's a new month and our Twine this month is Pink Limeade.  I just love this twist.  I also used 2x8 Zip BagsSpring Green Large Tag-It, and Raspberry Cupcake and Twisted Lime Sequins for a fun treat!


I filled my 2x8 Zip Bag with chocolate eggs. These bags can hold a lot of treats!  Next I picked out my Spring Green Tag-It so I could fit the cute Miss Kate Cuttable Easter egg file I cut from my Cricut using print then cut. I stamped my sentiment and then used a Spectrum Noir Glitter Pen over the die cut eggs and the stamped message. Then I added my sequins from both mixes to match with the Twine colors.


To attach the tag to the bag, I punched a small hole at the top and thread my Pink Limeade Trendy Twine through the tag and the bag.  It did turn out well!

I hope you have a fabulous day!!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Have a Sunny Day!

Hello!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  Today I have a sunny card to share with you.  I used Dark Citrus Trendy Twine, the Smile Stamp Set, and some Lemon Tart Sequins.

I found this cute sun and cloud image in my Cricut Design Space. I know it would be perfect with my Dark Citrus Trendy Twine.  Next I cut a tag shape with a die and made the topper a cute yellow to contrast with my blue and white paper.  


Then I stamped my sentiment from the Smile Stamp set on the bottom of the tag and wrapped my Twine around the bottom with a bow and added it to the top.  I pop dotted my image to the tag and pop dotted the tag to the card base and added my sequins.


I hope you have a wonderful day!!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Ready for Spring!

Hello everyone! I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  I'm showing you some cards I made a few weeks ago and haven't posted.  I used Totally White Trendy Twine on one and Limeade Trendy Twine on the other. I don't know about you, but I'm ready for some pretty weather!  These cards make me think of the nice days that Spring can have and I'm dreaming of 😊


On this card I used the Unity Stamp Wreath Builder set and kept it simple.  Since you need a square piece of cardstock, I knew my Totally White Trendy Twine would be perfect for the bottom part of the card with a bow in the middle.


This card used Limeade Trendy Twine and Lemon Tart Sequins.  I love the yellow and green together and this paper had both.  So I used my Limeade Trendy Twine on the curve of the card stock and my Lemon Tart Sequins as accents.

I hope you have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Much Love

Hello all!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today and sharing a card that could be a valentine, but it doesn't have to be!  I used Cherry Licorice Trendy Twine and two different sequin mixes from Annie's Paper Boutique.


The heart tree is from MFT stamps.  I thought it would be perfect for my Cherry Licorice Trendy Twine.  I made the red base, and the white top layer.  Then I wrapped my twine around the card and tied the bow at the tree base in the middle.  


I then cut out a small tag and embossed my sentiment onto it.  Then I took a black sequin from the Lemon Midnight Sequin Mix and a red one from the Candy Cane Sequins.  It's good to own them all from the store so that I can mix and match LOL!

Have a wonderful day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- XO OX Treats

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.  It's finally February!  January really did seem like a very long month.  It didn't help that it rained a lot where I live.  This month, the Trendy Gals are showcasing Cherry Licorice Trendy Twine.  I also used Candy Cubes 2x2 Boxes and the Smile Stamp Set.


I have these cute buffalo plaid SVG files that I just got last week.  They go perfectly with our Cherry Licorice Trendy Twine!  The original plan was to just put them on the box, but I wanted them to pop.  So I wrapped a 1 1/2 inch piece of white card stock around the box after wrapping my Twine around the box a few times.


Next, I put foam tape on all the pieces.  Even the tiny heart.  It was thing pieces of tape! There's an XO and OX on each box.


To finish it off, I cut a small tag from a die I have and stamped the Smile from the Smile Stamp Set onto it and punched a hole.  Then I slipped it through one of the pieces of twine and finished it off with a box.  I also added a small red enamel dot that I just picked up this weekend.  I love craft shopping for February!
Hope you have a great day!!
