Trendy Twine ~ Valentine Treats

Hello all!  Today is my day to post on the Trendy Twine blog.  This month is all about Totally Red Trendy Twine.  It is perfect for me to get a head start on my Valentine's Day projects!
These treats are cherry sour candies in Skinny Candy Bags.  For the toppers, I used stitched circle dies and stamped sentiments from the APB You & Me Planner Stamps and APB Smile stamp set on the white circles.
Before adhering the sentiment to the glittery black circle, I wrapped Totally Red Trendy Twine around it and then added a double bow of Totally Red Trendy Twine and Totally White Trendy Twine on the side.

Here is what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:

Happy Birthday in Watercolor

Happy Tuesday!  Beth from the DCWV Social Media Design Team here.  Today I am bringing you a card that is so bright and cheery that it will be sure to chase away any winter blues!  
All of the papers come from the DCWV Watercolor stack.  It is so beautiful!  The gold foil accents really give it an elegant feel.  I used several manual dies to create the effect I wanted on this card.  a stitched rectangle, floral oval, and two stitched oval dies.  The sentiment stamp was colored with markers to match the colors in the paper.
The finishing touch was some green crinkled seam binding ribbon and little flowers.
Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Dinosaur Train Birthday Card

Good morning!  Today is my day to post on the SVG Attic blog.  I created this card for my dinosaur-loving nephew.  
His favorite show is Dinosaur Train and I knew the T-Rex and Pteradactyl from the JGW Dino Party kit were perfect to replicate the characters from that show.
The solid colored papers I used are Jewel Toned Textured Cardstock from DCWV and the Polka Dots is from Oriental Trading.  The embellishments are homemade enamel dots and Orange Limeade Trendy Twine.  The sentiment is from the APB Smile stamp set.
I even added pink tongues inside their mouths by shrinking the top portion of the mouth and cutting the excess eye parts off the top of the cut.  What 5 year old wouldn't love an interactive card?!

Here is a look at everything that is in that set:
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Thanks Snow Much Cards

Good morning!  I am sharing these thank you cards with you today that I made for presents that my boys received for their birthdays in December.  I was totally inspired by Shelly's card, so stop by her blog to see it too!
The papers I used are from DCWV's Frosted Spruce stack and the snowflake is from DCWV's 6x6 DIY Project Stack: Ornaments.  I used two sets of Gina Marie Designs dies for the mats...stitched rectangles and scalloped stitched nested rectangles.
A bow of In The Navy Trendy Twine on the snowflake added just the right pop of color.  The sentiment is from APB Let It Snow stamp set and was absolutely perfect for these cards!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
