HoneyBee Showcase - Twine it up! March 23rd

Welcome to the hive!  We are all twisted up in twine this week!  Aren't you loving seeing twine all over the place?  It is so versatile and easy to use!  Court gave a great tutorial on Monday, sharing a number of fun ideas and tips.  Here is what a few of the HoneyBees have done, too!
I am so thankful for Court's video on how to do a spiral twist like she did on the button!  Here I have used the same technique on the sun, and it was really easy to do!  I have two cards to share with you today. The one above is nice to have on hand for someone who needs cheering up.  The little bunnies playing in the trees are from the Cricut "Give a Hoot" cartridge.  I hand wrote the sentiment.

This Tilda card is going out to a very special "Cupcake Designer" who is having a birthday next week!!!  I know she will see this before she gets it in the mail, but she won't know what is coming inside of it :)  Happy Birthday, Tori!  The embossing folder is from Sizzix, and the coloring is with Copics.  The round sentiment is from Stampin' Up!. 

On both of my cards I used gold flecked embroidery twine (or string) that comes on a short round tube.

Our challenge for you this week at Betty Bee's Buzz is to use twine on your card. I used mine to hold my pennants, but I cut my pennants so large, you can only see my ties. Yikes. The cute birthday girl and sentiment are a MFT Pure Innocence stamp set. I colored with Copics and layered Bella Blvd "Sweet Celebration" papers on a yellow-orange Bazzill card stock and SU whisper white card stock. The shape is a Spellbinders die and the border punch is by Martha Stewart. The glittery card base is by DCWV and the red gems are from Michael's. I popped my girl up on dimensionals. So cute!


Now it's your turn!  Show us your twine projects, and you could be the winner of this week's prize of a BRAND NEW BettyBee Design Heritage Page Kit!!!  Watch for the introduction of these, and other,  exciting new products coming soon!  You could be the first to have one!!  Just link below, or send to our email address, and we will link for you!

Happy creating!


and the HoneyBees

Betty, both of your cards are sweet! That little bunny behind the tree is cute and tour handwriting is so pretty. I always admire your copic coloring and the embossing folder you used really makes your card have pizzazz!

Great job Betty and June! :) Can't wait to see Betty's kit! How exciting is that and what a great prize!

I LOVE my twine! Thanks for a fun challenge! Adorable samples! That sun is sooooo cool! I like how the ends of the twine are spread out on the Tilda card, with the bow cinching the middle! And June, peek-a-boo, I still see your lovely twine, so no "yikes" there! (Thanks for the heads up on this challenge, too!)
