Prince of Peace Christmas Card Set

Wow! Christmas is coming up quick!  While I do love many things about Christmas (especially the real reason for the season), the abundance of red is just not my style. So, going with a completely non-traditional color scheme of blues, browns, and golds, I created this watercolor Christmas card set: Since I was creating a card set, I did everything assembly-line style. I started out by stamping the focal image on several pieces of watercolor paper. Next, I added a few highlights with some quick watercolor. I then hand placed a few small star-shaped sequins, […]

Fall Thank You

Hello: We had a wonderful time at Thanksgiving and I made this card for my son and daughter-in-law with whom we spent the holiday.  I used The Twinery twine in the place of a ribbon on my card.  This was a fun one to make.  Check out The Twinery store for all your twinetastic needs.     Here is a close of up the matching envelope.   Hugs, Anita

Handmade Holidays Blog Hop 2016

The Twinery is thrilled to once again be a sponsor of the Handmade Holidays blog hop! We’ve sponsored in the past and it has always been a great experience.

And everything is all tied up with twine, of course! The ombre effect is not as […]

Friendship Poppy Card

Hi there. It’s Tobi Crawford here with a beautiful and simple friendship card. On November 11th we celebrate Remembrance Day in Canada, so in honour of that day, I used a poppy stamp.      As a Canadian I will always think of a poppy as symbolic of Nov. 11 (Flanders Field etc…) but it is such a beautiful flower on it’s own. I added a pale wash of watercolours in the background, and coloured the poppies with Copics using the “no-line” technique. I think it really made the flowers stand out. The black twine […]

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 […]
