Twinery Embellishments

Hi there!

I was over on The Twinery blog yesterday sharing some fun cards I've made recently using my favorite Twinery twines along with some fun stamp images from PaperTrey Ink.  Since I had my Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps July release post yesterday, I thought I'd share my projects with you today here on my blog.  

I love how many colors we have in The Twinery shop - it makes it so easy to find matches to so many colors of patterned papers!

On my first card, I used buttercream twine for the centers of the flowers.  Such a quick and simple embellishment that really pops!

On my second card, I used denim twine for a bow on the lightning bug jar with a pearl for the center.  This is one of my favorite ways to use twine - along with wrapping it two or three times around a card base and then tying a bow.  I love how flat twine bows are too - makes very little bulk for mailing!

My last card uses another double bow on the jelly jar as well. I also wrapped the lemondrop twine four times for a bit of embellishment behind the label on the jar.

I hope I've given you some ideas on how to use your favorite colors of twine on your stamped images and cards!  I'm sure you'll agree that our twine adds the perfect finishing touches to your projects!  I've linked all the stamp sets for your reference in my detailed list below.

Have a great rest of your day!
