The Twinery Meets Rubbernecker Stamps Blog Hop

Hello! Welcome to another fun filled blog hop with The Twinery!  Today we are hopping along with Rubbernecker Stamp Company for another showcase of fabulous projects!  If you are following along with the hop, you should have arrived from Juliana Swanson's blog.  If you would like to start at the beginning, visit The Twinery's blog for a full list of participating designers.


As always, there are prizes available, so be sure to read to the end of my post to find out how to be eligible to win!


I have two cards to share with you using the Rubbernecker set "Fall Trilogy" and Twinery twine.


First up is this card inspired by some patterned paper I recently saw.  I started by impressing stripes on to the white background.  I love how a little texture adds so much to a simple card.


I stamped several of the leaf images from the rubbernecker Fall Trilogy set on die cut flags (from Lil' Inker Designs) in various colors.  Then I stamped text from one of the sentiments on top of the leaves in gray ink.  I then used the sentiment "friend" from the set and stamped it in green ink. I attached a butterfly with glue dots that I made with Maraschino & Charcoal twine (you can find directions on how to do this here) to finish it off.  

The next card I have for you today is another clean & simple one.


I die cut three square panels from chipboard and then stamped them with two of the leaf images from the stamp set. 


I then poked holes in the chipboard and used Charcoal twine to sew a border around each piece.  The twine adds a strong pop of color and visual interest.

So are you ready to hear about the prizes?  


The Twinery is giving away a "I Dream in Twine" Sampler pack, a retail value of $32!

and 


Rubbernecker Stamp Company is giving away a $25 gift certificate to their store!

To be eligible to win, we ask that a comment be left on each blog on the hop.
Deadline to leave comments to win is 11:59pm EDT, Friday, June 8th.

To continue on with the blog hop, make your way to Karen Hunsaker's blog!  Thank you for coming by!
