Trendy Twine ~ Happy 5!

Happy Friday!  Today on the Trendy Twine blog we are celebrating Helen and Sukie being with the TT DT for 5 years.  That is such an awesome milestone.  Congrats ladies!! 
Here are the cards that I created for them.  
This card went to Helen.  I wanted to make extra special cards for these awesome ladies, so I went to YouTube and followed THIS tutorial for Helen's card.  The papers I used are from DCWV's Peri & Peach stack.
I embellished the card front with Tickled Pink Trendy Twine and Frosty sequins.
The stamped sentiments are from Pink and Main's Wishes set.  I stamped them with Versafine Onyx Black ink and my Hampton Art Stamp Perfect.
This card opens up in such a fun way!  I added flower die cuts from GMD Spring Flower Arrangements die set.
Here is a view with it all opened up.
Next up is Sukie's card!  This one I created using THIS YouTube tutorial.  It is created with a 10 5/8"x10 5/8" square of paper.
The Lemon Peppermint Trendy Twine matched the DCWV Flower Shop stack so well!  That stack also included all the sentiments you will see on this card.  You can see a close up of the belly band in this picture.  The yellow layer is a die cut from GMD Crochet Oval set.
When you take off the belly band and pull the front triangles out, this is the view you get!  I used an unbranded square lace die from eBay for the light green layer.
The card opens up even further to reveal the inside where the message is written.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing these cards!  Make sure to stop by the Trendy Twine blog to congratulate Helen and Sukie on this amazing accomplishment.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Violet Pinwheels Card

Hello all!  This is one of those cards that just comes together so well by itself that you card hardly believe it!  
I started with GMD Violet Pinwheels Flowers dies and papers from Recollections' Modern Bouquet stack.  I pieced them within a black cardstock negative of the die cut.  They were adhered onto a die cut of a GMD Scalloped Stitched Rectangle using more of the patterned paper stack.  Yellow enamel dots from GMD Succulents colors set were used as the flower centers.
The sentiment is from Verve Stamps' Faith Medley set.  I used Versafine Onyx Black ink and my Hampton Art Stamp Perfect to stamp it.  I added three enamel dots from the GMD Purple Trio colors to finish off the card.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Winter Village Card

I am still in the Christmas in July mode so I am sharing this winter village card today.
I absolutely love the Winter Village Border die from Gina Marie Designs.  I cut it twice, once with a gray print and once with a light blue.  I distressed the edges of the gray layer with Weathered Wood Distress Ink then I offset the light blue layer behind the gray.  A layer of torn white cardstock at the bottom created the illusion of snow.  The sentiment stamp is from Annie's Paper Boutique.
To create the dark blue frame, I used the largest size of the GMD Scalloped Stitched Rectangle and cut the center out of the die cut with a GMD Stitched Rectangle die.  I embellished with a bow of In The Navy Trendy Twine, silver stickles and Liquid Pearls.  The papers I used are from DCWV's Frosted Spruce stack.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Stockings Trio Card

Hello all!  I am back with another Christmas card to share with you today.  This one features GMD stockings dies and GMD stitched rectangle dies.
The patterned papers are from DCWV's Hand Painted Christmas stack.  The white panels with stockings on them are popped up with Scotch foam tape.
I used VersaMagic Cloud White ink and WOW white embossing powder to emboss the sentiment from APB Merry & Bright stamp set.  The only embellishments I added were tiny red pearls.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
