Want to win some more candy?

Blog candy that is... oh my friends, I have some nice goodies awaiting you in the next couple weeks.

For today, I'd like to show you what I made with some of The Twinery's beautiful twine's. Let me show you what I made for the Glue Arts blog this week.
I have been challenging myself to work more with white images, more white cards, because I have trouble photographing white. 


 I really wanted the Twinery's twine to stand out.So I used minimal colors and patterned paper. I did use my Cuttlebug folders and tried to show off the beautiful embossing on these cards. The folders I used were Polka Dots, Kassies' Brocade, and Script.


You can see I made my own twine flowers, simply by adding loops using Glue Arts Adhesive Squares to punches of white paper, then adding the white paper to a colorful glittered button ( buttons by American Crafts) as is that striped paper in the hello card.


 The foam thickers are all also American Crafts.


Do you like twine? Do you like Glue Arts adhesives? 
Leave me a comment to win a sampler assortment of twine from The Twinery. And a ring of fabulous ribbon adhesive from Glue Arts. I'll pick a winner on Monday!

Have a great day!
