Twine-a-licious!

Hello there friends! Hope your week is going well!!

I miss posting my own creations on here as I haven't been doing much of that lately. So much behind the scenes going on. I have been really swamped with family stuff, DT work, Challenge stuff, PC, CARDS and Cardmaker Submissions and my job. But good things are to come and I cant wait to share with you!

Right now I would like to share with you a couple of cards I did tonight playing around with my Twine from The Twinery. I love the twine ... and all the variety of colors are awesome!! Isn't the twine gorgeous? Be sure to check out all the twine over at The Twinery!


First one I did is using the twine to make the main image. Here I used the Peapod twine to make a Shamrock. I just freehanded it with some Glossy Accents to make the shape to stick the twine to. I never cut the twine, just used the beginning to the end, just keep turning and overlapping the twine. For the sentiment, I made it myself using Harold's ABC from Lawn Fawn. And finished it off adding more of the Peapod twine to my button. Our family is part Irish and I just LOVE shamrocks, green and March!


Next card I did is for the new Hero Arts challenge - Birthdays and Stamped Envelopes. So on this card I used the Hero Arts Envelop Pattern stamp for my yellow background, it makes such a cute background as well as a great liner for an envelope using the HA Envelope Line Templete, I just ordered one along with the HA Envelop Templete. For my images I used the HA Happy Day Animals, love this set ... its so cute. To finish it off I framed it with the Peapod twine from The Twinery (I love framing scenes with my twine), stamped my sentiment and added a button with more Peapod twine and added a Cloud using my MFT flat bottom cloud die and grass die. I LOVE dies and MFT has the best and lots of them!


Thanks for stopping in and letting me share my creations with you today.
I hope I can inspire you to break out your twine and get creating with it! Its allot of fun and so many things you can do with it especially with all the colors The Twinery offers to you. Be sure to check it out!

Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and Blessings,
:) :) :) Jenny
Happy Everything
