CardMaker & The Twinery BLOG HOP!

Well, hello, hello! Thanks for stopping by today! You might just be here Hopping along the CardMaker and The Twinery's Blog Hop! You should have just come from Tifany deGough's beautiful blog! If not, and you'd like to begin at the top of the Hop, you can go to CardMaker blog to begin. 


The Twinery is giving out a lovely assortment (4 spools!) of twine (a 60$ value) in the following colors to a lucky Hopper! That Copper Shimmer is so pretty!


The Twinery sent me some lovely autumnal twine to play with! I made two cards in an autumn theme. On the first one I used Solid Marigold, Solid Cappuccino, and Solid Mandarin.


I used a leaf die to cut out turkey's tail feathers and then wrapped them in the twine, I love the added texture it gave to his feathers. 

A simple stamped sentiment is all that's needed to accent this cute guy! I think I will give this to my Mom as she is hosting Thanksgiving this year. 
For my second card, I decided to make an autumn rainbow. It just seemed like a fun and creative way to showcase my love of the colors of autumn. On this card, I also used the 3 colors of twine on the first card, and I used Solid Maraschino,  Copper Shimmer, Gold Shimmer, Mandarin Stripe, and Solid Natural twine. 


A textured background and some die cut and punched pieces give this card some extra oomph, but the twine takes center stage on this fun card! 

Next on the Hop is dear Stacey Schaefer! I am sure she has something FANTASTIC to show you! Enjoy the Hop! :)
