National Chocolate Cupcake Day


Hi Everyone:

Anita here sharing an easel card that I made for National Chocolate Cupcake Day.  Who knew??  What a fun day to celebrate.  Wish that I was eating  real chocolate cupcake.  I used some yummy The Twinery twine to accent my cupcake wrapper and pull the whole project together.  This would be a fun pick me up card for a friend.






Fall Napkin Placecards

Ooooh…isn’t it getting beautiful outside?
The leaves are changing colors and the fall weather is finally starting to break through the heat.
When I think of fall…I think of food.
(Or maybe I just always think of food.)
And what is a good meal without some cute decor to spruce up the table? Today I wanted to share these cute napkin ties that double as placecards for a fall meal:
As I was walking through a craft store, those giant wooden buttons just screamed at me to make something with them, and I think they are the perfect way to tie up some cloth napkins (with the help of twine, of course).

On each of the punched tags, I added a name and some leafy branches with some of my stamps, then added just a touch of color with a colored pencil.fall-napkin-namecards-4-wm

So Very Grateful Fall Card

Woohoo! It’s finally Fall!! DoBea here sharing a very autumnal card with you.

We have finally reached jeans and sweater season here in Northeastern Wisconsin, my favorite time of all! Don’t get me wrong, I love the summer and I’ll take it as long as we can get it, but there is just something about that smell of October.

This card here shares my very sentiments of Autumn and it doesn’t hurt that it could very well be a Thanksgiving card too.

So Very Grateful Fall Card

I kept the color palette neutral with just a pop of orange, and MY does that Gold Shimmer twine top it all off.

So Very Grateful Fall Card

Just a quick note about the leaves on the card. Quite by happy accident, I was using some wax paper to help loosen that leaf punch up, and lo and behold! Beautiful ghosty leaf! DEFINITELY had to add that to the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I am so very grateful for YOU and the time you take to visit here!!

Happy Fall!!

happy-fall-sixHave you noticed?  Fall is in the air!  We’re celebrating the change of the season all week at The Twinery! We’ve got gorgeous shades of green. red, orange, yellow and brown twine (just like the foliage changing colors) for all your projects!   
happy-fallI started with a die cut background of colorful dots in fall colors.     Sometimes it gets tricky trying to decide what color twine to use when you have lots of other colors to compete with.  That’s when I’m reaching for the neutrals.  This time I used Gold Shimmer Twine to add lots of texture to my design.
happy-fall-fourI wrapped the twine around my hand several three times to make loops.  I secured them to my card base in the center.  When I adhered my flag cut sentiment the adhesive is hidden and the pretty twine peeks out above and below! 
happy-fall-fiveI adhered die cut leaves with adhesive foam tape and added a sprinkle of gold sequins to pick up on the metallic in the Gold Shimmer Twine.
So bright and colorful!  Have a great day!

Autumn Greetings

Hello there!!  This is Amy here with a card to celebrate Autumn!!  I love this time of the year.  I can’t decide if it is the cooler sweater weather or the changing of the leaves that is my favorite, but I just love everything about this season…..except that it seems too short sometimes.  I love to create projects for fall, too like this card…….
I used a background stamp to add texture to the card base and then cut out pumpkin images with my Cricut.  I then added some ink to the die cut images to hlep them pop a bit.  I tied some Cappuccino bakers twine around the pumpkin stems and then lined the top and bottom of the cream colored cardstock with two passes of the Cappuccino bakers twine as well.  Here is a closer look…..autumn-greetings-1b
Here is that yummy Cappuccino bakers twine:

I hope that you are enjoying the fall season, too!
