Trendy Bakers Twine~Mother's Day Love Cards

Good morning! I am on the Trendy Twine blog today with two sweet Mother's Day cards. That holiday will be here before you know it, so I took the time to work ahead so I don't have to scramble when May comes. These cards feature Tickled Pink Trendy Twine, a beautiful twist of pink and white.
The patterned papers are from Doodlebug Design Lots of Love collection. I used a hole punch to take a bit of the card base off where the two patterned papers met to create and indentation for 3 lengths of Tickled Pink Trendy Twine. I tied those into a bow near the bottom of the card. 
For the focal point is a die cut heart stamped with Momenta stamps and Scrapbook.com inks ink Candy Shop Pink and Oasis. It was popped up with foam tape. To add a bit of sparkle, I used Bearly Art precision glue to adhere Raspberry Cupcake Sequins. Now these are ready to gift to make my mom and mother-in-law smile!


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



You can find our featured twist of April, Tickled Pink, in the following samplers if you don't need a whole spool.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Trendy Bakers Twine~Happy Easter!

Hello all, and happy Easter! I have a post on the Trendy Twine blog with a new set of Easter cards! I needed a few more cards to send out, and this was just the right amount.
The part that makes these cards so adorable are the new circle retro Easter tags. I just couldn't wait to use them! This first set has Happy Easter Ducky Retro Tags and blue 3" Paper Doilies
To add extra visual interest around the tag, I used Bearly Art precision glue to add a circle and bow of Lemon Tart Trendy Twine. Blue Berry Sequins were the final embellishment for this duo of cards.
The second set of cards feature Easter Egg Chick Retro Tags and green 3" Paper Doilies. They are embellished in a similar way with the Lemon Tart Trendy Twine, but have Grape Fizz sequins.
The patterned papers I used are from the Jillibean Soup Southern Chicken Dumpling Soup 6x6 pad. The sketch was from February 2024 SheetLoad of Cards
Wishing you all a very happy and blessed Easter!

2024 Seminarian Easter Cards

Hello all! Today I am sharing a large collection of Easter cards that I recently created. Several were sent off to seminarians from our diocese, and the rest will be given to family members. There are a total of 30!
The first thing I decided on was the patterned paper backgrounds. Most of the papers are from Echo Park's Homegrown collection, but I also used scraps from DCWV's Lilac Love stack to create 6 cards.
I used sections of DCWV's Paper Lace borders stack at the bottom of each background, then added two rows of matching Trendy Twine right above the lace. Those colors include Watermelon Taffy Trendy Twine, Grape Fizz Trendy Twine, and Lime Grapesicle Trendy Twine.
The front panel of the card was created with a background die cut from Cottage Cutz stitched rounded rectangle dies, lilies stamped from the Raisin Boat In Loving Memory set with Scrapbook.com Leather ink, and colored with Artify alcohol markers. The cross was a free SVG that was cut with my Silhouette Cameo. The large lily was die cut with my Brother Scan N Cut. The focal point was popped up with foam tape to the background of the card. Other adhesives used include ATG and Bearly Art glue.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Trendy Bakers Twine~Spring Celebrate Cards

Hello all! It is officially SPRING and I am so excited to share my latest creations with that theme on the Trendy Twine blog. They feature the beautiful Cotton Candy Trendy Twine.
I started by choosing springtime patterned paper, which is from Jillibean Soup's Coconut Lime 6x6 paper pad. I utilized the November 2023 SheetLoad of Cards sketch as a way to showcase several visually interesting techniques/supplies.
I really loved the diagonal strips of paper. It was something different than I usually do! The Cotton Candy Trendy Twine was a perfect accent to add between those paper strips. It adds great texture to the card! The vellum circle was die cut with a Cottage Cutz stitched scallop circle die and was adhered to the card front with foam tape. I die cut the GMD spring flower arrangement die out of white to allow the patterned papers and little punched out butterflies to shine!
The sentiment is from the Greetings stamp set and was stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black ink. The banner, tiny butterflies, and flower were all adhered with Bearly Art precision glue. Don't the bright and beautiful colors on these cards make you smile? These will be great for birthday cards or just to brighten someone's day.

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

Cotton Candy Trendy Twine

Greetings stamp set (currently on sale for $8)

You can also find Cotton Candy along with Posy and Sky in the Cotton Candy Sampler. Each color is ten yards in length, perfect for building a variety of Trendy Twine colors!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
