Trendy Twine: Guest Designer

Happy Friday!
It's Migdalia from Crafting with Creative M and I am Super Excited to be this month's guest designer. Yippee!!!

Today's project will feature this month's spotlight, which is the Orangesicle Trendy Twine and the Mini Take Out Kraft Boxes.

I decorated a Mini Take-Out Kraft Box from Annie's Paper Boutique with the 
Color Washed paper pad from Paper House.

I used a heating tool, Versamark emboss ink pad and gold embossing powder to stamp/emboss the "Thank you" sentiment on a stitched die cut tag.The sentiment is from the Happy Thanksgiving stamp set from APB. I adhered a pretty Orangesicle bow to the pumpkin sticker. Next, I made a bow with polka dot ribbon, adhered a super cute pom pom that I made with the Orangesicle Trendy Twine to the center and adhered it to the top of the Mini Take Out Kraft Box.

Here is a closer look at the pretty bow with the Orangesicle pom pom.

Here is a look at the fun products I used to complete my project:

Trendy Bakers Twine~Pumpkin Take-Out Box

Hello all and happy Tuesday!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here to share the fun fall treat box I made. This month we are showcasing Orangesicle Trendy Twine and Mini Take Out Boxes.
 I started with a Mini Take Out Box and covered the folded sides with paper using.  Then I added pumpkin die cuts to the front and back of the box.  They were cut at 3.25" tall so they were a bit taller than the sides.  For the front oval cut of the pumpkin, I added red-lined adhesive to it and then covered the whole thing with Orangesicle Trendy Twine, trimming around the oval when I was done and adhering it to the pumpkin base.  The stem of the pumpkin was wrapped with Twisted Lime Trendy Twine.  I stamped a sentiment from the APB Happy Thanksgiving stamp set in VersaFine Onyx Black ink and added it to the front of the pumpkin.  The finishing touch was to add Autumn Sequins.  All papers used were from DCWV's Pumpkin Patch stack.

Here's what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:

Trendy Baker's Twine - Boo!

Hi Trendy Fans!

This is Shelly from My Paper Love stopping in to share another fun Halloween treat. I am just loving all the fun Halloween treats that everyone has been posting this month. I have another fun treat that is great for a Halloween treat. I've seen many crafters make some similar "Mummy" treats and wanted to try using the Annie's Boutique Kraft mini Take out box.

I started with wrapping the  Annie's Boutique Kraft mini Take out box with gauze that I found at Target in the dollar bins. I just loved the cute way that the gauze was packaged so I kept the face of the packaging and adhered it to the box. I created a fun tag that I stamped with a sentiment from the Happy Halloween set. I tied the tag with Gray Licorice Trendy Twine.  

I filled the box with lots of Halloween candy!

...and there you have a treat fit for any little trick or treater!

Be sure to stop by the blog to see all the fun projects this month! We are sharing some awesome treats!

The Trendy Twine color of the month is Gray Licorice and it's a festive twist of black and gray.  This twist was originally created with Halloween in mind, but it's perfect enough to use all year long.

Our packaging for this month is the Skinny Candy Chutes. These clear boxes are great for M&Ms, jelly beans, and small gumballs.  They are 8" long so you can even slide a pen or pencil in if you are wanting a non-candy treat.

Trendy Baker's Twine - Winter Wonderland

Welcome back, everyone! Lisa from The Relativity of Paper sharing my last Guest Design post for October. Thank you for having me, it was an honor to be a part of the Trendy Twine community.
 Since we are heading into the holiday season I want to share a holiday/seasonal card. I'm using the Let It Snow Stamp Set along with Trendy Twine in the color Gray Licorice

This month has been a blast and I found myself reaching for products that I rarely use. I should use them but we sometimes find ourselves getting comfortable in our ways, even crafting. As I sit here writing this post what I want more than anything is to be in my craft room with a few stencils and shimmer paste. I love that stuff. And making this card reminded me of that.

To my surprise, I don't own a snowflake stencil, wha?! Okay, grab a stencil that looks like falling snow. YES! I have one of those. And that's how this whole card started. It's super easy to do. 
Using a heavyweight coverstock, you know that #110 stuff, add shimmer paste over a stencil and pretend you're icing a cake. Hey, it's what I do.  Set the card panel aside to dry and clean up stencil and spatula. Die-cut or stamp a snowman, put the snowman together or color if you stamped. Using patterned paper and the Let It Snow Stamp Set stamp sentiment using black ink, cut at an angle the patterned paper and a scrap piece of paper, want the angles to be exact? Cut the patterned paper and scrap on the angle together, then cut the length on the opposite ends. Use the scrap piece of paper to wrap twine around. Adhere patterned paper right below twine, add snowman with 3D mounting foam, finish the snowman off with enamel dots. Add 3D mounting foam to the back of the stenciled card panel adhere to a 4.25" x 5.5" top-fold card base. Add patterned paper/snowman to the bottom of card panel using 3D mounting foam.

Trendy Baker's Twine - Black and White Cards

Hi and welcome, everyone! 

Guest Designer Lisa from The Relativity of Paper

Today I'm sharing black and white cards featuring one of October's Showcase Products, Gray Licorice Trendy Twine. Since I'm featuring Trendy Twine that is gray and black I thought black and white cards would be perfect and it gives me a chance to show you how easy these cards can be. 

The Happy Thanksgiving Stamp Set has a lot of thankful sentiments that can be used year round. 
I decided to work with the So Thankful sentiment. This is a great guy card and super simple.

I laid black in down on an embossing folder, inserted a 4.125" x 5.25" white cardstock, carefully close the folder and run through Big Kick. Tip: If you lay the cardstock on the opposite side of the ink and secure it with post-it tape you can re-ink the embossing folder and run it back through if you need to.
Die-cut a piece of black cardstock to fit the sentiment; lay down some anti-static powder on black cardstock, stamp sentiment using VersaMark and heat set white embossing powder. 
Add fun foam to the back if the embossed white cardstock, wrap Gray Licorice Trendy Twine and tie a knot, adhere to a 4.25"x5.5" card base, add the sentiment over twine using 3D mounting foam, finish off with a few clear sequins.


This next card is just die-cutting white cardstock, layering it over black cardstock, stamp the sentiment on the bottom right corner, offset the bottom half of the die-cut and add 3D mounting foam, wrap Gray Licorice Trendy Twine around securing in place on 3D mounting foam, adhere to card base. I just iridescent drops to finish off the card.  
The sentiment can be found on the Let It Snow Stamp Set. This set has a lot of great sentiments.


I did the same process of adding ink to an embossing folder and running it through the BigKick. 
I used white ink on black cardstock and ran it through several times each time adding more ink. I love the way the ink pulled giving it a crackled look.  I decided to add clear embossing all over the white ink and heat set to really bring out that crackled look. 

I wrapped the Gray Licorice Trendy Twine around the card base, added 3D mounting foam to the back of the embossed black cardstock, stamped the Happy Thanksgiving sentiment from the Happy Thanksgiving Stamp Set. So easy.

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Bewitched Halloween

Hello everyone!  I'm Helen from HTB Creations and  I'm sharing a bewitching Halloween card with you. I used the fabulous Gray Licorice Trendy Twine on it and some black sequins from the Grape Licorice Batty Sequins Mix.

I made this card way back in September because we moved October 5th.  And my room is still not unpacked so it was a good idea to have this ready LOL! (I did find my box of Trendy Twine though!)  The paper came from a Halloween stack and the spiders, tomb and stamp are from My Creative Time. I did add clear Wink of Stella to the spiders.

I carefully glued my Gray Licorice Trendy Twine around my tomb and added a bow.  I wanted to add the twine to the part of the web the spider is hanging from too, but it was too small and was not working for me. Then I added some black sequins from the Grape Licorice Batty Sequins to the middles of some of the webs.  

There are  more fun projects to come this month so keep checking back!

Trendy Baker's Twine - Boo!

Hello and welcome back, everyone! 

Guest Designer Lisa from The Relativity of Paper.

Today I'm sharing cards featuring the Happy Halloween Stamp Set and one of this month's feature products, Gray Licorice Trendy Twine

I'm sure we all find ourselves needing a quick card? I love sentiment stamps because you can create a quick background with very little effort and produce adorable cards. 

To create the cards above I stamped "BOO" along the bottom half of a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of cardstock, decided on the position of the cardstock and then cut it, the top half of the cardstock is cut down to fit the front of our card allowing for a reveal between the top and bottom pieces. Wrap Gray Licorice Trendy Twine around your card base where you plan on placing the reveal and stamp the sentiment across the trendy twine with white ink. It's transparent giving a ghostly effect. I decided to add a little interest by dry embossing cobwebs using my BigKick and scored a line between the cobwebs and BOO sentiment. Add 3D mounting foam to the back of the two pieces of cardstock and adhere to a 4.25" x 5.5" top-fold card base. I finished off the cards by including a die-cut ghost and a few clear iridescent sequins. 
For the second card, I used the same process and stamped Hello Boo-tiful alternating Distress Oxide Inks - Carved Pumpkin, Twisted Citron and Wilted Violet.
