Wrapping my World in Baker's Twine!



Sometimes all it takes is little color and
a little embellishment to make a card
complete.

That's what I LoVe about using my
baker's twine from The Twinery!


I loved using the 'Funky Foliage' set from
Wplus9 Designs and thought I
would enter this card in the current
Color Cue Challenge over there....



I used Cappucino and Lilac
and I love the affect with
the rest of the colors used
on this card.




I am sure you know by now, I think that
the baker's twine from
The Twinery
is the best quality and the
saturation of color is out of this world!


There are LOTS of twines out there that
are low-quality and one available in 2 or 3
'faded' colors.  For my money, it's
The Twinery all the way!!!


Ya know, they have a terrific
Sampler Pack for only 20 bucks!!!


All 11 colors (including the 3 newest colors)
15 yards of each!  It's a terrific deal!

I am really glad you stopped by!
I'd love to know if you've gotten your
baker's twine from The Twinery yet?
 Leave me a comment.......YAY!!

Wow! This is scrumdiliuptious! Yum-O! LOVE the way you used our Color Cue! And I'm so jealous that you have that set! Sooo one I've had my eye on for the longest time, as it came out before I joined the team. And your Baker's Twine is the perfect finishing touch... well, I love the pearls, too! I've had Capuccino Baker's Twine for the longest time and have never used it. I'm just not drawn to the color, but you've inspired me to tap into it. Thanks! And thanks for playing along with our Color Cue!

I've gotten my twine but haven't quite figured out how to use it..... I'm hoping that I can use your blog for inspiration!

Julie Ranae,
I love this card!! I haven't been able to follow my favorite blogs recently (I've fallen in love! - no kidding!) but today was an exception! I'm saving this idea in my special Julie Ranae folder!

You make the twine look scrumptious, Julie! I never would've thought to pair those two colours together but they really draw out the kraft and lilac in your card.

You are getting good mileage out of your Funky Foliage set, Julie! Congrats on your mention at PaperCraft Planet on this, too.

Dawn said...

Absolutely FANTASTIC Julie. One of the things I really love is how the embossing in the back repeats in the shape of the leaves!

Thanks for playing along with us!
