Hello and welcome in to The Open Window today !
I always enjoy when The Twinery participates in fun events
and today, I am sharing projects with you as the
during the 2012 Handmade Holidays Blog Hop.
I am so happy to share projects using baker's twine from
The Twinery along with products from Fiskars, Tombow
and Hampton Arts.
My first card was created using paper from
Simple Stories & Fancy Pants Design.
I simply braided twine in Maraschino, Charcoal & Flax and used it
as a border for this extra-long card.
The snowflakes were punched using fabulous snowflake punches
provided by Fiskars and attached with mini-brads.
Teeny buttons were added to the tree.
This next card is more detailed, but quite easy.
This card is all about the layers starting with paper from My Mind's Eye.
I punched the extra-large 'Geometric Medallion' border by Martha Stewart
and created circular frames using Spellbinders dies.
After layering each piece, I embellished using baker's twine in
Marschino & Ocean and bling from Prima.
How about another holiday card . . .
This CAS card was created using super cool ornament single punches
and border punch. The baker's twine is Flax & Stone.
The sentiment is from Hampton Arts.
The ornament tops were created with Stickles and the hangers are tiny gems.
This sweet card was made using stamps from The Craft's Meow
called 'Warm Winter Wishes'. and paper from Recollections.
I loved making this card (and the next) using 'Stone' baker's twine
for the fringe and mitten ties.
And finally . . .
I used the very same set of stamps and papers, but switched up
the color scheme and used 'Honeydew' & 'Ocean' twine.
I recently shared this project on my blog.
