The Twinery :: Imaginisce Blog Hop :: If Friends Were Flowers

Good Morning Everyone! I know it’s been quiet around here lately, but I’m here today to share some fun inspiration featuring The Twinery and Imaginisce! There’s a wonderful hop going on all week long where you’ll have SIX chances to win prizes along the way. All you have to do is leave comments each day of the hop and you’re automatically entered. Easy, right!?

If you just stopped over from

Shellye McDaniel’s blog

then you’re on the right track and hopping along just fine!

If not, head back over to The Twinery’s blog or Imaginisce’s Blog so you don’t miss a stop (or a chance to win)!

Each of the Twinery’s Designers received “Sole Sisters”, a fun, whimsical collection from Imaginisce that features colors I personally LOVE.

The embellishments, and patterns were super inspiring, and I had so much fun pairing them up with my Maraschino and Blossom twine from The Twinery.

  • For the card above, I simply cut strips of some of the smaller patterns in the collection and adhered them on a diagonal across a 4″ x 5.25″ sheet of white cardstock.
  • I added Maraschino twine to the edges for texture, and snipped the upper right and lower left corner so I’d still have some of the kraft base showing through.
  • After a quick addition of some pearls for accents, I added my fun little die cut to create both a focal point and a sentiment.

The matching and coordinating elements and chipboard shapes made this card fun and easy to whip up! Think of how many you could create just like this in an afternoon. They’re perfect to keep in your stash for a last minute occasion.

This card was probably my favorite of the three because of the funky, earthy feel. Using one of the strips from the pattern paper, I created a border and tied in my Maraschino and Blossom twine. Love how The Twinery’s colors seem to match perfectly with any collection!

I hope you enjoyed the inspiration today, there’s still much more to see so don’t forget to visit all the blogs in the hop this week!
