The Twinery Creates with Poppystamps Blog Hop



HELLO !!!

Yes indeed!  After a year-long break, I am baaaaack!
I am so happy to be sharing a wonderful event with you
and can't think of a better time to be sharing!


I have enjoyed being the Design Team Coordinator for The Twinery
for nearly 4 years now and love when we get together with other
creative teams to share projects with you.
Today is Day #3 of our blog hop with Poppystamps.
They provided beautiful dies to inspire us & here is what I came up with.


This beautiful die is called the 'Viva Tree' and as soon as I saw it,
I knew what I wanted to do.
Last year, I used the same 'knotting' method to create popcorn
for another fun project (which can be seen HERE)

I cut a dark brown & kraft brown tree and glued them
to my card base.  I thought it would give some dimension to create
a 'shadow' effect by layering one over the other.
To create the colorful leaves, I simply tied three knots for each color,
and glued them randomly to the tree.
The Twinery has so many beautiful shades of baker's twine, so you
can really get creative with this idea.  
For my tree, I chose the following colors:

Pink Sorbet
Lilac
Marigold
Mandarin
Honeydew
Cappuccino
