An Exciting Announcement:


Today's the day I can share my exciting news with you - I've been selected to join the 2012 design team for The Twinery!   If you have followed my designs for anytime you know how much I love The Twinery's twine, so for me it's match made in heaven to work for them!  In honor of my announcement, I thought I'd share a couple of cards with you from my collection that I created using my beloved twine and stamps.


One of my favorite ways to use twine is to wrap it around a card front panel like I did above - usually wrapping it three times.  I added a little double bow to the sentiment tag too.  Even though this is a rather 'elegant' card, the stone twine works well, I think!  (The stamp set I used is called God's Purpose from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.)


Here I used it by wrapping cappuccino twine three times around the kraft card stock and tying it in a bow.  I really like how 'flat' twine is - it makes it so easy to mail your projects out without having the added bulk of a regular ribbon bow.  (The stamp set I used on this card is Warm Winter Wishes from The Craft's Meow.)


My last card shows how fun it is to use twine to 'thread' buttons. I used mandarin orange twine - I how bright this orange is! - for this card.  (The stamp set on this card is called Rise and Shine with sentiments from Artful Endearments from Layers of Color.)

Here's a full list of all the new designers being announced today - I'm honored to be working with them this year!  Be sure to stop by The Twinery's blog as they are having an awesome give away in honor of the new team:

 Thanks for sharing in my excitement and be sure to check in as many of my fellow designers as you can - you're going to love their work, I'm sure of it!

Have a great day
Jessica
