Prince of Peace Christmas Card Set

with-twine-6-wm

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, […]

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. This year, our designer Tifany is sharing some beautiful ornaments that she created using cut wood rounds as a base. These beautiful ornaments all use some form of paint technique (stencil, ombre, or both) and many have the addition of a little bit of bling in the form of sequins or buttons. And everything is all tied up with twine, of course! The ombre effect is not as […]

Hello! It’s Tifany here from Ink Blots by TRD. ‘Tis the season for homemade gifts and today I wanted to share with you this easy homemade whipped body butter, packaged in a cute little mason jar that is tucked inside a handmade box.

I gathered a few basic ingredients and went to […]

Deer Christmas Tags

Christmas-Deer-Tags-1a

Hello and welcome!!  This is Amy here to share some pretty tags with you today.  These would be great to add to neighbor gifts or even larger packages since these ones measure about 5 1/2 inches long.  The tags are cut with a banner die from Taylored Expressions and the deer and tree images are cut with my Silhouette Cameo.  I used the Coordinations Whitewash cardstock for the trees and sanded them a little bit for texture and the color core to come through.  I tied little scarves on the deer with some yummy Maraschino […]
