Take A Hike

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 […]

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.

I stamped each stick with a single large letter (for example: ‘r’ for rosemary), but you could easily stamp a whole […]

Easter Treat Bags

Hi there! It’s Tifany here from Ink Blots by TRD. Easter is almost here and I just love to celebrate such a joy-filled holiday.    In our family we try to remember that Easter isn’t about eggs, bunnies, or candy, but about the fact that our Lord was raised to life and that He lives! (And we are certainly thankful that He gave us eggs, bunnies, and candy to enjoy.) These decorated bags are a simple reminder – and as a bonus they hold a little treat. Each treat bag is topped with a paper doily […]

Rainbow Fringe Birthday Card

Hello everyone!!  This is Amy here to share a fun rainbow fringe birthday card made with a beautiful assortment of solid bakers twine from The Twinery. My oldest daughter’s birthday falls on St. Patrick’s day and she loves to incorporate the holiday in with her birthday, so she welcomes anything that has rainbows and shamrocks as gifts and such.  I just love to indulge her and I think that she will love the rainbow pattern I created with the yummy solid bakers twine on this card for her this year.  Here is how I did it: […]
