The Twinery and Stampin' Sisterhood Co-Hop


I am so excited that the Stampin' Sisterhood is having a combined blog hop with The Twinery!  If you arrived from my talented friend, Carolyn King's blog, you're in the right place! 

 For my creation, I had so much fun making my Christmas card using The Twinery's beautiful twine in Peapod, Lemondrop, and Maraschino (don't you love those yummy names?) and Rubbernecker's cute Santa and tree images.



Both images were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers.  I added liquid applique to Santa's facial hair, and Fun Fluff to the fur on his coat hem, cuffs, and stocking cap.  As you can see, I applied the Peapod green twine to this funky Christmas tree image, as well as the outermost framed section.  I used the Lemonade twine for my punched star on top of the tree, and I sewed the Maraschino twine for the "Joy" sentiment banner that Santa is holding up.  I wrapped the Maraschino twine around the inner framed section.  My notched corner punch is the perfect tool for looping the twine around the two framed areas.

Now, here's important blog hop information...
