Hi Everyone! 

Its been awhile, I know! 
Life has just been busy with the kids and life 
but I am still crafting but not blogging as much.

Today, I am back though sharing a card I made to let Helen from the Trendy Twine Design Team know she is loved and appreciated.

Helen and I were on the Trendy Twine Design Team for a few years and she is still a current team member! That's dedication!! 

Thank you Helen for all you inspiration, 
time and hard work!

Now for the card I made for Helen:

For the card, I used Pinkberry Sorbet Trendy Twine. I love the two pinks and the white together. I made a template with a heart die cut and just used the center as the focal point of the Twine heart. 

Then I added the panel with the heart to a pink floral card base. Then I die cut a 'hello' from an Impression Obsession die, several time and adhered them together for some dimension. Next, I added that to the bottom of the card and put some sparkle on the hello with some stardust stickles. 
Finally, I finished the card with a few enamel hearts.

Thanks for stopping by and make sure to check out the Trendy Twine blog for all the projects featured today to celebrate Helen!

Have a wonderful day! 

Hi Everyone!!
Today I am sharing a project as a Guest Designer for Die Cuttin Divas.

I decided to make a box card using the Box Card Die from Pink & Main Stamps, some stamp sets and dies from My Favorite Things- the Magical Dragons, Make a Wish, and Beary Special Birthday stamp and coordinating dies.
My husband loves dragons and his birthday is this month so this challenge was just perfect. Besides, I don't know about you but I can always use Birthday cards. 

I started out with green cardstock from Bazzill for the card base, then I used the Dragon Tails 6x6 patterned paper from Doodlebug Designs to decorate the panels. Next, I stamped and copic colored the Dragons, presents and balloons then I was able to assemble the card. Finally, when I had everything in place for the box card, I added the sentiment from Make a Wish and framed it with some blue cardstock. 

I hope you like my card and are able to join the fun Die Cutting Divas Challenge.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!

Hi Everyone!!
Today, a few Trendy Twine Design Team Alumni, Guest Designers and the current Design Team members are wishing Lesley, the fearless leader of Annie's Paper Boutique and Trendy Twine, a Happy, Happy Birthday!!!

For my card, I made a Trendy Twine rainbow 
for Lesley's card.

To start my Trendy Twine stitched rainbow, I took several Circle dies and lightly traced them in pencil about a quarter of an inch apart on a white cardstock stitched rectangle. Then pierced the holes with my paper piercer and just eyeballed this. Then I went ahead and hand stitched each line with an embroidery needle. Then I took a white card base and added some of the rainbow hearts from the Fairy Tales collection by Doodlebug Design. I foam mounted the rectangle panel then added the sentiment from the paper stack. I used a die cut heart and cloud from the collection, as well. Then I finished the card off with some epoxy hearts from Doodlebug that matched.

Birthday cards and projects.
Don't forget to wish LESLEY a Happy Birthday!!

Hi Everyone!!
Happy National Cardmaking Day!!
 Today, I am sharing a card that I made as a 
swap with my Crafty BFF, Stacey.
Make sure to visit her blog!
We used the same sketch and stamp company, 
Gerda Steiner Designs for this swap.

Here is the sketch:

Here is the card I made with the sketch.

I used the "You're Koalafied" stamp set from Gerda Steiner Designs. The image is colored with Copic markers and I added some white gel pen accents. The card base is Neenah Solar white 100# cardstock and the patterned paper is Fun and Frolic 6x6 from My Favorite Things. I added some various enamel dots. The sentiment is stamped in Versafine Onyx black ink and heat embossed in clear. 

Thanks for stopping by!
I hope you have a wonderfully Crafty day!

Hi Everyone!! 
I hope you are having a great week so far.
Today the current Trendy Twine design team along with a few Trendy Twine Alumni are sharing some cards and projects for Beth, who just had her baby girl, Autumn.
So we are congratulating her and showering her with lots of Trendy Twine love!

For my project, I made a card using 

I used a new to me die from My Favorite Things, Cross Stitch tag die and a pattern from their website. I used the three colors of twine for the bib, then die cut the panel and layered it with a scalloped rectangle die cut from the Kraft in Color 6x6 from Doodlebug. I also cut the words "Baby" from the same paper using the Bright Lights alphabet dies (MFT). Next, I die cut the "Hello" from some dark pink cardstock from Impression Obsession and added some shimmer and glossy accents to it. These are layered on the card front then I added some silver glitter hearts to finish the card.

Congrats again Beth!! 
What a wonderful blessing for your family.

How cute are these turtles? 
They are just perfect for some masculine/boy cards which I am always in need of!
For this card, I made a distress ink background. Next, I stamped and colored the turtles and a few gift packages. I fussy cut them out and popped them on the panel after I stamped the sentiment from the set in black ink. Then, I added the panel to a top folding white card base with some craft foam.

Hi Everyone!
I am back with my last card for the My Favorite Things Summer Camp 2018.
The last day was to use Symmetry on your card or project.
Boy, let me tell you I struggled on this one, 
so I just used the supplies that I had out already 
and went with something simple.

 I also used two more Complementary Colors: Purple/Yellow.
I used the Make A Wish stamp set and dies, 
the candles are the symmetrical part of the card.

Woo-Hoo!! So thankful to play along 
and have some fun crafty time, FINALLY!!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have an amazing day!!

Hi Again!!
I am back with my Day 4 cards for the 
My Favorite Things Summer Camp 2018.
Day Four was to use Complementary Colors, 
these are colors that are opposite on the color wheel.

I can always use Birthday cards, especially for my students at school. So I made 3 cards with complementary colors: Pink/Green, Teal/Orange and Blue/Orange (for all the Broncos Fans!).

For these cards, I used the My Favorite Things Make a Wish stamp set and dies. I used the patterned papers from Sugar Peas designs again to coordinate the colors and a Hero Arts Ombre ink pad for the flames. I kept them simple because you know, boys don't care for sparkle or sequins usually! :)

Have an amazing day!

Hi Everyone!
Here I am again, sharing my card for day 3 of the My Favorite Things Summer Camp.
Day 3 was about using repetition on your card or project.
I decided to use word repetition on my card.

For this card, I used the Simply Fabulous Sayings stamp set and wanted to go with Purple, my favorite color. For the inks, I used different Altenew ink pads in purple. They create a wonderful Ombre effect. I stamped the "Awesome" sentiment six times then stamped and heat embossed the coordinating sentiment in silver on vellum. I added the panel to a purple card base then finished with some wink of Stella glitter pen and some iridescent sequins.
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day!
