Twinery & Nikki Sivils blog hop!


Welcome!

I'm honored to be joining some amazing designers in showcasing two great products -

twine from The Twinery 


and some beautiful papers, stickers, and punch outs from Nikki Sivils!


I was thrilled to receive the Exit Here paper collection pack.  This was my first experience with the Nikki Sivils line and I have to save I am impressed with the colors and quality of her card stock!  I really liked the variety of the punch outs and the full sheet of several sized ABC stickers... lots of variety to play with, that's for sure!

On my first card, I decided to edge the 'smile' punch out with a strand of twine and then embellished it a bit with a double 'star' bow.  I like to use Tombow Mono Multi adhesive when I work with twine - it dries quicky and keeps the twine in place wonderfully!

Card Details
Stamps: Star Quality (TCM)
Ink: PTI
Card stock: SU; Nikki Sivils Exit Here (patterned paper & punch outs)
Other: Zig Zag ribbon; MFT label die; Twinery Twine; Making Memories brads; Corner rounder

Twinery Twine Used: Shore

My next card uses the camera punch out that I embellished with some twine and glitter -


This time, I went 'all out' and embellished the camera punch out.  After I finished with the twine, I added some glitter, which I wish I would have left off... but, sometimes I don't know when to say enough is enough, I guess... lol!  I finished off the card with the red ABC sticker letters to spell 'cheese' and tucked it just a bit behind the ribbon.

Card Details
Stamps: Little Freida's Daisy (TCM)
Ink: Versafine

Card stock: SU; Nikki Sivils Exit Here punch out and paper collection
Other: Sewing machine; Twinery twine; glitter; MFT ticket die cut; SU ribbon


Twinery Twine Used: Denim, Flax, and Buttercup

Let me encourage you to hop over to The Twinery and Nikki Silvils' blogs to find out more information and project links for this two day blog hop event!  There's a giveaway going on that you are not going to want to miss out on too!  If you are following along on today's hop, your next stop is Lauren!


Happy Hopping!
