Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Burlap Banner

This is my second post today.
Freshly Made Sketches is just a post away!

It's time for a new challenge at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Burlap Banner!

We have a new sponsor, The Twinery, for the Curtain Call Inspiration: Burlap Banner!  A randomly selected participant in the Burlap Banner challenge will receive a fabulous bundle from The Twinery, while the LEAD will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!

I definitely love twine - it is such a light look for a clean and simple card.  There is solid twine and striped twine - I tend toward the solid, but there are just some cards that cry out for the fun of the stripe!

Happy Happy Happy

I have used three colors of twine from The Twinery: Cappucino, Caribbean and Mandarin. They are perfect matches for the Stampin' Up colors that I used on my card: Soft Suede, Bermuda Bay and Tangerine Tango! I am a math geek at heart, and an organization freak and I love spreadsheets - so it shouldn't surprise you that every twine that I own is in a spreadsheet listed with an ink color that matches.  I also have spreadsheets for ribbons and Stampin' Up designer paper and buttons and more.  I'd say that even I worry about myself sometimes, but it really does speed up the card making process when you can do a quick look up and find matching embellies (at least if you are as matchy-matchy as I am!)
  • Stamps: My Favorite Things Bitty Banners and Birthday Greetings
  • Paper: Stampin' Up Bermuda Bay, Crumb Cake
  • Ink: Stampin' Up Tangerine Tango, Crumb Cake, Bermuda Bay, Soft Suede, Versamark
  • Accessories: The Twinery Striped Twine in Cappucino, Caribbean and Mandarin, My Favorite Things Bitty Banners dies, Hero Arts white embossing powder
