Trendy Bakers Twine~Thanksgiving Treat Boxes

Good morning!  Today I am on the Trendy Twine blog with Thanksgiving/fall treat boxes that feature our twine of the month, Totally Chocolate.
The first box is a Mini Kraft Take Out Box, covered with patterned paper from DCWV's Fall Gathering stack.  I then wrapped Totally Chocolate Trendy Twine around the middle of the box three times, tying it in a bow on the side.  The focal point was a Round Crow & Pumkin Vintage Inspired Tag, which was popped up with foam tape, and was embellished with Chocolate Truffle sequins adhered with Bearly Art precision tip glue.  The Thankful sentiment was from APB Hello Fall stamps and was stamped with SB.com Leather ink.
The second box is also a Mini Kraft Take Out Box, covered with patterned paper from DCWV's Fall Gathering stack and wrapped Totally Chocolate Trendy Twine around the middle of the box three times, tying it in a bow on the side. The focal point for this one was a Round Scarecrow No. 2 Vintage Inspired Tag, which was popped up with foam tape, and was embellished with Autumn Sequins adhered with Bearly Art precision tip glue.  The Happy Harvest sentiments were from APB Hello Fall stamps and was stamped with SB.com Leather ink.

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

Happy Birthday Lesley!

Hello all! Today is an extra special day as we celebrate Lesley's birthday!  She is the owner of Annie's Paper Boutique and a great friend too!  Stop by the Trendy Twine blog to see the cards that are heading her way.
Here is the card I created for her:
Lesley loves Disney themes, so I took out my EK Success Frozen paper pad and got to work!  I used a fun fold card tutorial which was quite simple to create, but makes an interesting card for sure.  The focal point has a die cut white doily layered with a Pink Tag-It.  I punched a hole in the opposite end of the Tag-It so it looks like more of a banner than a tag.  I stamped sentiments from the APB Smile stamp set in black and tied bits of Tickled Pink Trendy Twine and Grape Fizz Trendy Twine in each hole.
The finishing touch was Grape Fizz Sequins sporadically added with Bearly Art precision glue.  below you can see how the card sits up.  I loved creating this style of card and I hope Lesley loves it too!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Annie's Paper Boutique~Very Merry Sequin Release

Hello everyone! Today is a very exciting day at Annie's Paper Boutique as we share a Very Merry sequin release! Christmas is just right around the corner and with our four brand new sequin blends, you'll be sure to find just the right one for your projects. We know you are excited to see what the Design Team has created, but let's take a peek at the new sequins -- Jolly MedleyDelightfulMerry, and O Christmas Tree.

For my project, I created a frameless shaker card.  I decided it was the perfect way to showcase those gorgeous Delightful sequins!  When I first looked at those sequins, it made me think of a warm, vintage Christmas, so that is the "feel" I went with for my card.
The base cardstock was from DCWV's Gold Foil 6x6 stack and I covered that with a page protector, securing it on the back side of the cardstock on 3 sides before adding a generous amount of Delightful sequins.  I then secured the fourth side of the page protector sheet to the back.  The tree was a free SVG from Hello SVG and I inked around the outside with SB.com Olive ink to make it more vintage feeling.  For the trunk, I added Bearly Art glue and a few short strips of Totally Chocolate Trendy Twine.  To decorate the tree, I added garlands of Krafty Red Trendy Twine and Delightful sequins, all of which were also adhered with Bearly Art glue.  The whole tree was adhered to the plastic with red lined tape.
For an extra bit of elegance and warmth, I stamped a sentiment and star from APB Merry Christmas stamp set with VersaMark ink and heat embossed them with Wow! Metallic Gold Rich powder.  Once again, I adhered them with red lined tape to make sure they stuck well to the plastic.  Just like that, one more Christmas card completed!
Be sure to stop by the Trendy Twine blog to see what other very merry projects were made with these new sequins!

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

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Sheetload of Fall Sympathy Cards

Hello everyone!  Today I am back with another SheetLoad of Cards.  This time is a a group of sympathy cards with a fall theme.  The SheetLoad of Card sketch I used was November 2020.
The patterned papers were from DCWV's Farmstead Harvest 6x6" stack.  The sentiment was stamped with Unity's I Consider You Special set with SB.com Leather ink.  That was die cut with CC stitched circle dies and popped up with foam tape.  I also used ATG and Bearly Art precision tipped glue on these cards.
Behind the sentiment was the perfect place for a bit of visual interest with GMD Twiggy Branches die cuts.  To embellish, I added score lines around the center panel and also went over those score lines with white gel pen.  I also added gold Pearl Pen dots in the upper right corner.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Trendy Bakers Twine~Sunflower Box Card

Good morning!  Today I am on the Trendy Twine blog with a delightful fall box card.  Sunflowers are such a beautiful sign of fall and they always make me smile.  This one features our Trendy Twine of the month, Totally Chocolate.
I started with the Sunflower Envelope Box Card file from My Scrap Chick and cut it all out with my Silhouette Cameo.  For the center of the sunflower, I really wanted a lot of visual interest, so I wrapped the whole thing in a spiral of Totally Chocolate Trendy Twine.  To do that, I started with red lined tape in the center, then towards the outside I glued it down with Bearly Art precision tip glue.  I also glued Chocolate Truffle sequins to the center of the flower and the card front.  The sentiment was from the APB Happy Thanksgiving stamp set and was stamped in SB.com Leather Ink.  That same color of ink was used on the edges of most of the die cuts before assembly to make the card look a bit more rustic.

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

Neutral Colors Sympathy Card

Hello friends!  Today I am sharing a single sympathy card with you.  It was a quick one due to the fact that I used a sketch with it.  The sketch I used was MFT sketch #49.  If you aren't familiar with MFT sketches, they have pages and pages of them you can print out and use to create with!
The patterned papers are from Craft Smith Natural Luxury paper pad (my favorite for sympathy cards!).  The sentiment stamp is retired from My Craft Spot's Deepest Sympathy set.  I die cut around the sentiment with GMD scalloped stitched rectangle die, matted it and popped it up with foam tape.  I used a gold thread nest under the sentiment for extra visual interest.  I did chop the upper right corner off, exposing the white card base and added a trio of pearl pen dots in bronze.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

A Bunch of Girl Cards

Good morning!  Yesterday I shared a group of boy birthday cards I created from the 6x6 Echo Park All Boy paper pad.  Today I am sharing the group of girl cards I created with the 6x6 Echo Park All Girl paper pad!
The first style of card is made using the SheetLoad of Cards May 2020 sketch.  Embellishments include a button die cut, Totally White Trendy Twine and sequins.  The setiment was created on my computer and printed off.
The second style of card was made with the SheetLoad of Cards August 2019 sketch.  The stamp is from APB Smile set and stamped with black ink.  I added a die cut flower and a single pink brad to embellish.
The next cards were made using the SheetLoad of Cards April 2020 sketch.  Embellishments include enamel dots.  The setiment was created on my computer and printed off then die cut with Pink Fresh Studio fancy label frames dies.
Here is the unicorn version of the same sketch.
To be honest, I wasn't 100% LOVING the girl cards, partly because I was having troubles matching solid color cardstocks with the prints.  I stopped after 8 cards even though the boy set I made was 10 cards.  Which one do you prefer?  The boy set or the girl set?  You can see all the details on the boy cards HERE if you missed that post.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

A Bunch of Boy Cards

Hello all!  Today I am sharing a group of boy birthday cards that I created earlier this year.  All the patterned papers are from the 6x6 Echo Park All Boy paper pad.

The first style of card is made using the SheetLoad of Cards May 2020 sketch.  Embellishments include In The Navy Trendy Twine and GMD enamel dots.  The setiment was created on my computer and printed off.
The second style of card was made with the SheetLoad of Cards August 2019 sketch.  The stamp is from APB Smile set and stamped with SB.com Midnight Blue ink.  The only embellishments were a pair of colored staples by the sentiment.
The next cards were made using the SheetLoad of Cards April 2020 sketch.  Embellishments include enamel dots.  The setiment was created on my computer and printed off.

The dinosaur card was made in the same manner as the shark card.
The last style of card was just to use leftovers of the first sports card. Embellishments include GMD enamel dots.  The setiment was created on my computer and printed off.
I really loved how this collection of cards turned out!  I decided to make a set of girl cards with the same sketches and will be sharing those later this week.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Trendy Bakers Twine~SheetLoad of Halloween Cards

Hello and happy Wednesday!  I am back with a SheetLoad of Halloween cards for the Trendy Twine blog.  I always send out Halloween cards to family, so this was the perfect way to get those made in assembly line fashion!   

The June 2019 SheetLoad of Cards sketch was a perfect one to use because the sentiment strips were perfect for the Happy Halloween stamp set!  That made my decision to make these cards very easy because I love the sentiments in that set!  I used patterned papers (and stickers) from DCWV's Spooky Halloween stack to create the cards.  Do you send out Halloween cards?
The sentiment strips were varying lengths to accomodate several stamps from the Happy Halloween stamp set.  It was fun matching the stickers to the words!  Above and below the sentiment I wrapped Spooktacular Taffy Trendy Twine three times to add a border and really make that strip pop.
To add a little sparkle, I glued sequins from the new Hocus Pocus Shaker Medley onto all of the cards.  The layers were all adhered with ATG with the exception of the character print paper panel, which was popped up with foam tape.  Now the cards are ready to send out to my family!  Do you send out Halloween cards?

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

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

SheetLoad of Feminine Birthday Cards

Hello all!  Today I am sharing yet another SheetLoad of Cards made with papers from the Echo Park's Just Be You kit.  So far, I have made 27 cards from that kit, which I am super happy with!  If you want to see the other posts with these papers, click HERE and HERE.
The SheetLoad sketch that I followed was from June 2020.  The stamp is retired from My Craft Spot's Chalkboard Sentiments and I inked it with Scrapbook.com's Midnight Blue hybrid ink.  I colored bits of the sentiment with Artify markers and also punched three holes in the top of the sentiment strip before matting it with the navy cardstock for a little extra visual interest.  To embellish, I added a trio of adhesive gems to the bottom right corner.  Adhesives used were ATG and Bearly Art precision glue.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

SheetLoad of Thank You, Baby, & Misc. Cards

Hello all and happy Friday!  Today I am sharing a grouping of cards that I created with prompting from Call Me Crafty Al.  She gave a challenge to use a scrapbooking kit you previously purchased and create with it!  Well, create I did, and I also used her January 2020 SheetLoad of Cards sketch to use multiple sheets of the 12x12" papers from the kit.  The kit I used was Echo Park's Just Be You kit.
This is the first set of cards I made using the sketch...thank you cards!  You can see they differ a bit from each other, but are basically the same. Products used on these include: wavy edge die, GMD Slash Stitched Round Square die, Corner Chomper, enamel dots, Unity I Consider You Special stamp, SB.com Midnight Blue ink, stickers from the kit, ATG, Bearly Art glue and foam tape.  There were 6 cards made in this way.
I made 3 baby girl cards next using the following supplies: wavy edge die, Cloud 9 Design Simple Thoughts-Baby stamp, SB.com Midnight Blue ink, Pink Fresh Studio fancy label frame die, corner chomper, stickers from the kit, ribbon, ATG, Bearly Art glue and foam tape. 
These final 3 cards didn't follow the sketch exactly, but the patterned papers were still cut the same way.  Supplies for these include: GMD Fishtail Banner die, GMD banner border die, Annie's Paper Boutique Choose Happy stampSB.com Midnight Blue ink stickers from the kit, ATG, foam tape, and Bearly Art glue.
As a bonus card, I saw this 4x6 panel in the paper kit and knew I had to make it into a card for my niece!  I simply cut around the panel with a GMD wonky stitched rectangle die, matted it with cadstock and added a piece of patterned cardstock behind it.  The two cacti in the front were stickers from the kit that I popped up with foam tape.  I kept the card simple, only adding an enamel dot in the top right corner.
There you have it!  A total of 13 cards made with the Echo Park Just Be You kit!  I'll let you in on a secret, while I had the papers out, there were two more papers that were really calling my name, so I had to make those into a sheetload of cards as well, so you will be seeing more cards from this kit very soon!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
