Thanks for stopping by! We’re sharing a little Puppy Love here at the Twinery over the next few days and I’ve got a sweet little card to share! I love incorporating twine into my projects as a way to add color and texture. This one has lots of different colors – a treat for your eyes!
I started by stamping a tag with a punny sentiment and some cute little paw prints. Next I got out my ruler and drew a pencil dot ever 1/4″ to help me punch holes in a nice straight row down the side of the tag.Now the fun part… attaching lengths of colorful twine along the edge of the card. There’s so many colors to choose from.. why pick only one?I didn’t want to distract from the bright twine colors, so I threaded the tag with charcoal twine and colored my puppies in neutral shades (Copic W’s).
Aren’t these little guys the sweetest?

It’s Tifany here and today I wanted to share this card featuring a few of my favorite things – mason jars and twine…and (stamped) flowers.
I love using The Twinery’s twine to jazz up real mason jars, and I wanted to give the same feel to this mason jar stamp. Rather than wrapping my twine around the entire card as I often do, I just pierced holes in the card around the rim of the stamped mason jar and threaded some Solid Lilac twine through the holes. I love how the colored flowers and pop of color with the twine play off of each other!
We’re celebrating summer with garden themed projects this week at The Twinery! I love gardening and I love this time of year because the garden is in full bloom. Small seedlings that were planted in May have matured and are producing an abundance of flowers (and veggies!) and the yard is a riot of color.
It’s no secret I love working with floral images, and this set from Reverse Confetti is one of my favorites.
Nothing makes colors pop more than a neutral background. I layered on soft grey papers and wrapped Charcoal twine around my card. I took a two foot length, folded it in half to make a loop on one end. As I wrapped it around the card I feed the two loose ends through the loop, threaded a button with the two ends and finished with a bow to secure it in place.
The Charcoal Twine adds some drama to the bright colors of the flowers, and anchors all the die cut images. Have you ever noticed sometimes it looks like your image is “floating” ? Running a bit of twine behind the design gives the appearance that it’s holding everything in place. I wrap the twine around the cover of the card. The cotton is thin enough that the card still lays flat and adds to that “home made” look and appeal that I love. I’m sending this to a dear friend so she knows I’m thinking about her .. still after all these years!
