The Twinery & Market Street Stamps Blog Hop


Welcome to The Twinery & Market Street Stamps blog hop!  If you are following along in the hop you should have come here from Julie Day's Blog!

This is a 2-day hop and there are prizes up for grabs!

One Twinery Ultimate Sampler Pack (retail value $25)

One Market Street Stamps $25 Shopping Spree

To be eligible to win, you must visit each blog each day and leave a comment on each post no later than Friday, November 25th.  Prize winners will be drawn at random and will be announced Saturday, November 26th on both TheTwinery and Market Street Stamps Blogs.

For my project, I got to work with the fun & fabulous Market Street Stamps Home Grown set!


This set has this wonderful lawn mower in it that is perfect for masculine cards! I don't know about you, but I find it difficult to find images that I like for masculine cards!  Do you see that sun image behind the lawnmower?  That is from a Market Street Stamp background called Here Comes the Sun.  Another favorite of mine!



I had such a great time creating this grass for the lawn mower to mow with the Honeydew twine from The Twinery.  I placed my ATG adhesive on a strip of cardstock and then looped the twine on the cardstock.  I cut off the bottom loops to make the bottom of the grass.  For the top of the grass, I cut off the part that the mower "mowed" and then left the rest of the grass tall.  Most of the grass I left in loops, but some of it I cut the loops and left it as tall strands of grass which mixed up the look a little.


I hope you enjoyed my card!! Thank  you for visiting today! Your next stop on the blog hop is my Twinery team member Tifany DeGough who just also happens to be a design team member with Market Street Stamps too! 

Be sure to leave me a comment so that you will be eligible to win one of the two fabulous prizes!
