Trendy Bakers Twine~End Of School Year Treats

Hello all!  'Tis the season for end of school year/start of summer projects, and that is just what I created for my latest Trendy Twine blog project.
These were super simple to make and absolutely can be made last minute if needed!  All of the supplies I used to make these were from Annie's Paper Boutique besides the mini glue dots for the sequins.  I started by putting fun size Kit Kat bars into Yellow Chevron Treat Bags and folded over the tops.
To embellish them, I made "thread nests" of Lemon Tart Trendy TwineYellow Chevron Treat BagsFun in the Sun PrintablesMini Wooden Clothespins, and Autumn Sequins.  The last thing I did was a bow of Totally Lemon Trendy Twine tied to the clothespins.  Yes, it really was that simple!
The sayings and images in the Fun in the Sun Printable are so cute for summer!  You'll definitely want to check that out for any and all of your summer projects.

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

Trendy Bakers Twine~Mother's Day Card

Hello all!  Today I am on the Trendy Twine blog with a Mother's Day card.  It features one of our bright and cheerful twines of the month, Totally Lemon Trendy Twine.
I started by stamping a Unity stamp onto watercolor paper with Scrapbook.com hybrid black ink.  Once that was fully dry, I watercolored the image with Distress Inks then die cut around the image with a GMD Eyelet Elegance rectangle die.  That die has the perfect holes to weave the Totally Lemon Trendy Twine through!  I love how it added texture and created another visual frame around the image.  I added a sentiment from the APB Friendship stamp set onto a kraft banner and glued a die cut "mom" above it to make it a little more personalized.  The sequins on the card are from the Grape Fizz SequinRaspberry Cupcake Sequin and Sky Sequin mixes and were adhered with Bearly Art precision tip glue. The whole front panel was then glued to a kraft card base that I had distressed with brown ink along the edges.  I think this will be the perfect card to give my mom for Mother's Day!

Trendy Bakers Twine~Spring Thanks Card

Good morning!  Today I am on the Trendy Twine blog with this spring themed card.  It features our Trendy Twine twists of the month, Chocolate Cupcake, and Chocolate Sprinkles.
I started with a kraft card base and added Jillibean Soup patterned papers with Chocolate Cupcake Trendy Twine and Chocolate Sprinkles Trendy Twine wrapped around.  I then proceeded to add a GMD eyelet elegance square die cut at an angle, with the excess trimmed off.  The Kraft Tag-It and flower die cuts were all distressed with Memento Desert Sand ink.  The tag was finished off with a Spiced Pumpkin Trendy Page Dot and Chocolate Cupcake and Chocolate Sprinkles Trendy Twines, then popped up with foam tape to the card.  The sentiment was stamped from the Greetings stamp set using SB.com Dark Chocolate ink.  Cotton Candy sequins added a finishing touch to the whole card.

Seminarian Easter Cards 2022

Hello all!  I know Easter is past, but I wanted to share the Easter cards I created for the Seminarians from our Diocese that are studying to become priests.  

All the cardstock besides the white was from Kingston Crafts paper pads.  I followed the September 2021 SheetLoad of Cards sketch.  The stamps were from Diamond Press.  The sentiment was stamped with VersaFine Clair Warm breeze ink and the cross was stamped with VersaMark, heat embossed with gold powder and die cut with the included die.  I kept the cards pretty simple and flat as I was making them in quantity to mail, so the only embellishments I added were a strip of ribbon behind the cross and gold pearl pen dots.  I love the richness of that embossed cross!
Here is a look at all the cards I made in this style...22 in all!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Trendy Bakers Twine~Happy Easter!

Happy Easter morning!  On the Trendy Twine blog, we have sweet projects to share with you, so hop over there to take a peek.  I created these Easter treats to place in my kids' Easter baskets.
First of all, I filled Square Glassine Envelopes with M&M peanut butter eggs and sealed them shut with double sided tape.  I then die cut an Easter banner, adding double sided tape to the back of the paper before die cutting to make the banner be a large sticker.  The carrots were colored orange with a marker and I left the bunnies white.  I then added bow ties of Cotton Candy Trendy Twine to the bunnies and carrot tops of Twisted Lime Trendy Twine with Bearly Art precision glue.  
I decided to add a Kraft Metal Rim Tag with a strand of Cotton Candy Trendy Twine.  The sentiments on the tags were stamped from the Smile stamp set using VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink.  To finish off the project, I added Cotton Candy Sequins with Mini Glue Dots. 

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

I started by stamping the Ruler Background stamp set with VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink onto various scrap carstocks that coordinated with the background paper.  I trimmed the stamped papers and arranged them in a way I liked onto the background, glueing them in place with Bearly Art Precision Glue. To add visual interest by the sentiment, I wrapped In The Navy and Stormy Trendy Twine next to it.  The final embellishment was a trio of enamel dots.

Growing In Unity Day 4

Thanks for sticking with me through my week of Growing in Unity!  From Monday through Friday I will post a new creation daily that feature stamps from Unity Stamp Co.  Be sure to stop by and comment each day because there will be 2 random winners from my blog comments who will each win a $20 gift credit to Unity!

On to project #4...

The stamps from the focal panel are from Unity's Everything More stamp set.  I stamped it with Scrapbook.com Orange Spice and Midnight Blue inks and cut around it with my Brother Scan N Cut, then also cut the shadow layer with the Scan N Cut.  The butterfly was from a Unity grab bag and worked perfectly to accent the card.  The style of card is a fun fold called Diagonal Double Fold Card.  You can find the tutorial I somewhat followed to create this card HERE.  The patterned papers I used were from The Paper Studio's Orange Envy mat paper pad.  I don't usually use orange in my cards, but these papers were too pretty to pass up!  Adhesives used include Bearly Art precision glue and foam tape.
This is how the card looks when it is all opened up.  I really liked the addition of the butterfly peeking out from the inside.

Growing In Unity Day 3

Thanks for coming to my week of Growing in Unity!  From Monday through Friday I will post a new creation daily that feature stamps from Unity Stamp Co.  Be sure to stop by and comment each day because there will be 2 random winners from my blog comments who will each win a $20 gift credit to Unity!

On to project #3...

The stamps I used were from Unity's Unexpected Places (KOM 2/17) stamp set.  I inked them with Scrapbook.com hybrid black ink and stamped them onto watercolor paper.  I used my stamp platform and re-inked three times to achieve the rich black lines you see on the card.  Once dry, I used various Distress Ink colors and watercolored the coffee cups.  I also made a faux "coffee cup" circle at the top and splatters with Distress Ink as well.  I kept this card simple, which is hard for me to do!!  I simply matted the stamped panel onto a dark brown cardstock layer, then onto a corrugated embossed kraft cardstock.  The card was complete!

I created a graduation card using Unity's Totally & Utterly Amazing (KOM 5/13) stamp set.  The hats were stamped using VersaFine Clair Tulip Red and the sentiment was stamped using VersaFine Clair Nocturne.  The sentiment strip was embellished with Berry Trendy Twine and then popped up with foam tape.  The only other embellishment was silver Pearl Pen dots on the hats.  Additional adhesives used include Bearly Art precision glue and ATG.

I used Unity's I Consider You Special stamp set for this card.  It is probably one of my all time favorite Unity sets because of it's versatility!  The inks I used were from Scrapbook.com and the colors were Pink Lemonade, Camel, and Dark Chocolate.  I then used my Brother Scan N Cut to cut out the stamped panel.  I popped that up with foam tape onto a die cut tag that was embellished with Posy Trendy Twine and a Krazy for Kraft Trendy Page Dot.  The patterned papers were from DCWV's Meet Me In Paris stack.  The final embellishment was gold foil enamel dots.  Adhesives used include Bearly Art precision glue and foam tape.

Hello all!  I am on the Trendy Twine blog today with a duo of Easter treats that feature our twists of the month, Chocolate Cupcake Trendy Twine and Chocolate Sprinkles Trendy Twine.

Trendy Bakers Twine~Bunny Treat Holder

Hello all!  Welcome back from a bit of a break.  Spring is in the air, and with it, I have a cute Easter project for the Trendy Twine blog to share featuring Watermelon Taffy and Pink Limeade Trendy Twines.
When I saw the Bunny Candy Wrap file from My Scrap Chick, I knew I had to make it.  It was perfect to dress up with Trendy Twine, of course!  I added Watermelon Taffy Trendy Twine to the center of the bow and also three lines of it around the whole bow tie band.
On the egg, I used Pink Limeade Trendy Twine to create decorative lines, and Raspberry Cupcake Sequins all adhered with Bearly Art precision glue.  A Hershey's candy bar fits perfectly inside and can either be taken out from the top or by removing the bow tie band.  Isn't it an adorable Easter treat?
Here's what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:

Blue and Lime Nurse Card

Hello all!  I needed some crafting therapy time, so I decided to play along with the current My Favorite Things Challenges: Color #184 and Sketch #582.  This card was the result!
Products used include: MFT Call The Shots, MFT Superhero In Scrubs, Scrapbook.com hybrid black ink, VeraMark ink, white embossing powder, Artify Markers, Echo Park Paradise Beach 6x6 paper, Cottage Cutz stitched rounded rectangle die, corner chomper, GMD Sophisticated enamel dots, ATG, Bearly Art glue, and foam tape.  
P.S. I just realized this is the very first project I have posted to my blog all year so far that didn't have pink in it!  I love pink, but maybe I should be broadening my color palette a bit LOL!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
