Take A Hike

stag-three

Did you know it’s National “Take A Hike” day?  This time of year a walk in the woods is a feast for the eyes.  The colorful foliage in every shade you can imagine looks amazing!  If you’re lucky you might just catch a glimpse of some wildlife too! This Graceful Stag die surrounded by all the beautiful colors of nature seemed like just the thing for Take A Hike day!   I started with a panel of cardstock that was just a little bit bigger than the window opening of the die cut.   I […]

Halloween Banner

Are you gearing up for Halloween?  It’s just a week away!  We’re loading up the blog with fun ways to celebrate!  I was originally going to make a bunch of Halloween tags for treat bags to share today, but decided they were too cute to part with.  I mean… the kiddos are only focused on the candy right?  So I decided to string them on a banner to hang in my crafty room!  I used three strands of twine  – two Charcoal, one Solid Charcoal.  I  wanted the hanger to be strong because I know […]

Pawsitively Perfect!

Puppy-Love-Five

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 […]

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 […]

Quick & Easy Garden Markers

Hello!  It’s Tifany here from Ink Blots by TRD and today I wanted to share these quick & easy (& cute!) garden markers with you.  I started by taking some craft sticks and snipping one end to a point with some heavy duty scissors. (Please don’t try this with your standard pair – it will surely throw them out of whack.) Once I had the points completed,  I got out my stamps and ink. I stamped each stick with a single large letter (for example: ‘r’ for rosemary), but you could easily stamp a whole […]
