Anyway, I have a card today debuting a BRAND NEW stamp from Stamping Bella, this little chick's name is JASMINE and she is DARLING, is she not?! LOVE her. Today for the Bella-riffic Friday challenge we had a 'paper piercing' challenge so as you can see I had fun piercing :) Next week's challenge is to pull out those CUTE "huggabuggs" and use 'em! Check out the rest of my Bellariffic teammates too- links are on my left sidebar here!
So....my last trip to the Nashville Farmer's Market inspired me to think of how much I LOVE flowers and watermelon, in particular, during the summer. That may sound funny, but it's where my mind went while making this card, which is also featured today over on the TWINERY BLOG!. Also inspiring was a card I received for my birthday (another one of my favorite things about summer!) from a dear friend of mine who used Twinery Twine that she created into a handmade flower embellishment. I loved it SO much I had to try it and here's what I came up with:
I took some BLOSSOM twine snippets and glued them down to the back of a button, being careful to leave the button holes open until I achieved the desired look of this flower. Wrapping some HONEYDEW twine around my card (see the cute watermelon-inspired paper?) I pulled it through the button and tied it into a bow. This was SO EASY and so much fun to do!
Now, speaking of ALL this cute Twinery twine, have you seen the newest COLORS? Check them out:
As I am feeling UBER grateful for my friends in the stamping community (I'm hanging out with TWO of them TODAY, as a matter of fact...can you guess WHO they are? LOL!) and my family, I am GIVING AWAY a sampler pack of this new TWINE!
Leave me a comment here saying what YOUR favorite thing about summer is and I'll announce the winner on Monday at 12:01 AM CST so you have all through SUNDAY NIGHT to enter!
Good luck and thanks for sending-off SUMMER with me so sweetly! <3
