Do you get bored with the same embellishments?
An embellishment that I enjoy using is twine. Here are some examples of ways to use twine, all used with Serendipity Stamps and twine from The Twinery.
When I was asked to take part in this blog hop, I could not resist!
I love nautical themes, lighthouses and die so what is not to love about the new Serendipity Stamps
lighthouse die and stamps set? It is so simple to cut a backing for the lighthouse with whatever color you want your stripes to be.
Below, you can see that I have used twine as edging and as an embellishment (netting that I made with the solid natural twine) on this side step card.
Here is another nautical themed card where I used twine as edging, as an embellishment for a stamped image (on the sailboat) and as a closure.
Another theme that I think works very well with twine is sewing. Here the edging is a blanket stitch around the card. I also embellished the stamped images such as the spool of thread, quilted heart as well as adding twine to the die cut "Hello" and actual buttons used on the heart.
While you can use twine on most any card or scrapbook layout, I think it works great with the nautical and sewing themes.
In addition to the Lighthouse set from Serendipity Stamps, I used Whelk Shell Small, Joy is a Net, Hello die, Sewing and Quilted Hearts Set. In addition to the natural solid twine, I used Midnight blue stripe, Maraschino Solid, Honeydew Stripe, Blossom Stripe and Lilac Stripe.
