Pawsitively Perfect!

Puppy-Love-FiveThanks 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! 
Puppy-Love-One

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.Puppy-Love-FourNow 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?Puppy-Love-ThreeI 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?

Hi.

Hi.
I’m so glad you are here!
 
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!

To Grow A Friend

Grow-A-Friend-One

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.

Grow-A-Friend-Three

It’s no secret I love working with floral images, and this set from Reverse Confetti is one of my favorites.

Grow-A-FriendNothing 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.Grow-A-Friend-Two

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. Grow-A-Friend-FourI’m sending this to a dear friend so she knows I’m thinking about her .. still after all these years! 

 

SRM Stickers and The Twinery

Hello!!  Today I have a wonderful project that features two of my favorite companies…..SRM Stickers and The Twinery

SRM-Container-1a

For the base of my project, I used the Medium Kraft Pillow Box from SRM Stickers.   I added a little bit of ink around the edges of it and then added the pretty White Lace Doily over the top of it.  The sentiment is from the We’ve Got Your Sticker/Thanks.  The bakers twine that I used today is Strawberry and Honeydew.  I wrapped it around the pillow box and then tied it in a bow on the left side. 

SRM-Container-1b

I cut the flower image on my Cricut Imagine.  I inked up the edges of the cuts a bit and then glued them onto the pillow box.

SRM-Container-1c

I think that this pillow box is a great way to give a treat to show some gratitude towards someone.  What would you fill it with?

Here is a look at the colors of bakers twine from The Twinery I used today….
