Trendy Twine - Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!  Today the Trendy Twine has joined together to share some amazing Thanksgiving projects.  For my card, I used the DCWV Autumn Splendor stack for the base of my card.  I loved all of the different patterns on the paper so I kept the background fairly simple.
I created a simple rosette using some coordinating polka dotted paper. The rosette was layered with a die cut tag which was stamped with a sentiment from the APB Happy Thanksgiving stamp set.  A wooden button and a twine bow in Orange Truffle Trendy Twine was the finishing accent on my card.
Head on over to the Trendy Twine blog to check out the amazing projects created by the design team.  The crafty products used on my cared are available over at Annie's Paper Boutique.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day!

So Thankful for You

Hello! Today I have a card to share for the upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday.   The focal point of my card was created with the Momenta (Art-C) Feathers Stamp & Die set.  I opted to emboss my feathers and not use the stamps.  Each of the feathers were cut out in a different color, embossed and inked on the edges.
Next, I added a button and twine bow in Orange Truffle Trendy Twine on top of the feathers.  The sentiment is from the Pink and Main Thankful stamp set.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderfully crafty day!

Thanks So Much

Hello!  Today I'm sharing this Thanksgiving treat box which was created with the Momenta (Art-C) Stamp & Die Cut Gable Box.  I think I'm addicted to cutting out these adorable gable boxes with holiday themed papers. They are the perfect size for tucking in some treats.  I cut out my box using the Momenta 12x12 "All Through the Year" paper pad. The fall themed paper was perfect for my project.
Next, I used some Glue Dots adhesive tape on the edges to adhere the two pieces together to form my box.  A simple belly band was cut from coordinating papers.  I stamped a sentiment from the stamp set included in the Gable Box kit and secured it to my box with some jute.  More jute was adhered to the handle along with a coordinating button and a couple of fussy cut leaves.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a spectacular day!

Trendy Twine - Send Coffee Now

Hello!  Today I have coffee themed project to share over on the Trendy Twine blog.  With it being a nice cool fall I have coffee on the brain which inspired this fun tag.  I used the adorable APB Need Coffee stamp set and lots of Distress Inks to create my tag.  I used a die to cut out my tag and then used a smoothing technique using ink and water to create the background of my tag.  The tag was also splattered with some paint.
Next, I stamped the images and sentiments on my tag, watercoloring each image.  I added some Wink of Stella to each of the images for a sparkly effect.  A few sparkly enamel dots complimented the images.  Some Creamy Pumpkin Trendy Twine was used to accent my tag.  A small wooden button was threaded with the twine as a fun embellishment.
The products used on my tag are available over at Annie's Paper Boutique. Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a fabulous day!

Many Thanks

Hello! Today I'm sharing a project created with the Momenta Gift Tag Kit.  This kit contains many of the items used on my project including the kraft envelope, doily and jute cording.  I punched out a tag using the Art-C "Love, Hello, Thanks" stamp and die set, it's the perfect sized tag for a hand written note.
I embellished my envelope with some ribbon and a couple of leaves from my stash.  The flower was created with the Momenta "Flower Punch and Stamp Set".  I added a wood button from my stash in the center of the flower.  The finishing accent was the "many thanks" sentiment from the Momenta "Thank You Words" metal stickers.
Thank you so much for stopping by!  Have a fantastic day!
