Trendy Bakers Twine~Guest Designer Thanksgiving Card

Hello all! Happy Thanksgiving! I have a special guest who helped create today's project...my 4 year old daughter!  She absolutely LOVES all of the Annie's Paper Boutique image stamps and wanted to make a card for her Grandma using the Hello Fall Planner Stamps.  Of course I obliged!
The stamps from Hello Fall set were stamped with VersaFine Clair inks in Charming Pink, Warm Breeze, Twilight, and Green Oasis.  The stamped panel was then wrapped with Twisted Teal and Raspberry Cupcake Trendy Twines.  She wanted curly twine as well, so I saturated some with spray starch, wrapped them around a pen, and let them air dry.  Once dry, I tied them around the straight pieces of Trendy Twine.
The patterned paper is from LilyBee Designs Victoria Park 6x6 paper pad.  Navy blue cardstock worked well to mat layers with.  The finishing touch was bling, of course!  Pink Diamonds Sparkling Gems are easily adhered with Bearly Art Precision Tip glue.  That completed our simple card!

Here's what we used from Annie's Paper Boutique:

Trendy Bakers Twine~Autumn Tag

Hello all!  It is Thanksgiving week and before fall projects are in the past, I wanted to share one more quick project with you for the Trendy Twine blog.  It is an autumn themed tag.
I started with a Mango Chunky Tag-It, added washi tape, and glued strips of Spiced Pumpkin Trendy Twine at an angle on the bottom half.  I then added the stamped sentiment banner using APB Hello Fall planner stamps and Scrapbook.com Leather ink.  That adorable scarecrow focal point is simply a Round Scarecrow Vintage Inspired Tag matted onto a brown scalloped circle die cut, then popped up with foam tape.  At the top of the tag, I used champagne chevron ribbon from the Chevron Ribbon set and tied a bow of Spiced Pumpkin Trendy Twine around it.  I simply LOVE how the ribbon fit perfectly in the top of the Chunky Tag-It! The finishing touch was a trio of Chocolate Truffle Sequins.  Bearly Art precision tip glue was the adhesive I used for the Trendy Twine and sequins.

Happy Birthday, Lesley!

Today the Trendy Gals wanted to show our appreciation for Lesley, the owner of Annie's Paper Boutique because it is her BIRTHDAY!  Happy birthday Lesley!  This is the card I made for her.
The patterned papers are from DCWV's Unicorns & Rainbows stack.  The card is a fun fold card featuring a "Drapery Fold Technique".  Of course, a card for Lesley wouldn't be complete without Trendy Twine, so I used Paper Smooches Balloons dies and made Raspberry Cupcake Trendy Twine strings for the balloons.  A sentiment stamp from the Annie's Paper Boutique Smile stamp set made the card complete.  I used Bearly Art precision tip glue as the adhesive for the card.
Be sure to stop by the Trendy Twine blog to leave Lesley some birthday love!!

Deck the Halls with Annie's Paper Boutique!

 Hello Trendy Twine fans!  Today on the Trendy Twine blog we are super excited to jump start the Christmas season with a group post featuring Christmas ornaments.  Now is the time to get working on those fun seasonal projects that you may not have time to complete later on in the season.  Not only would these ornaments be beautiful gracing your own home, they would make fantastic handmade gifts!  Without further ado, here is the project I made to share with you today:

I started with a 2.64" clear acrylic Christmas ornament.  The insert was cut from acetate.  To make the stable design, I stamped the image from the APB Merry Christmas stamps onto white paper, scanned it into my computer, and traced the image in my SCAL4 software to cut out of permanent black vinyl with my Silhouette Cameo.  I did enlarge the image by about 1/2" from what the original stamp was.  Once I rolled the acetate and got it inside the ornament, I added fake snow and lots of Delightful sequins.

For the top of the ornament, I knotted red chevron ribbon from the Chevron Ribbon Sampler first, then made a double bow using Holly Trendy Twine and Totally Kraft Trendy Twine and glued it to the front of the ribbon.  The hanger for the ornament was simply Holly Trendy Twine and I added a small tag to it with a sentiment from the APB Merry Christmas stamp set that was stamped with VersaMark and embossed with Gold powder.

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

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!  Be sure to stop by the Trendy Twine blog to see what the other Trendy Gals created!
