The Twinery & Skipping Stones Design!

Welcome! 
Today The Twinery and Skipping Stone Design are teaming up to provide you lots of inspiration and fabulous prizes!


If this is your first stop, you will want to head back to The Twinery!
You should be arriving here from Stacy's Blog!



Today I am sharing a thank you card I created using 

and 


Don't they work beautifully together!?
 Supplies:
Cardstock: White (Recollections)
Ink: Embossing Distress Ink by Tim Holtz (The Twinery)
Embossing: Earthtone Nutmeg, Earthtone Olive, Earthtone Paprika, 
Regular by Suzy West (WOW Embossing Powders)
Chipboard: Stack-a-bellies birds (Basically Bare)
Sticker: Orchard Harvest by Samantha Walker (Creative Imaginations)
Adhesive: Adhesive Runner & 1/4" Square Zapdots (Helmar)

To create the twine wrapped bird, I placed adhesive over the front and edges of the chipboard bird and then began wrapping around the shape.  I taped the ends on the back of the bird and then used foam adhesive squares to adhere the bird to the card!
