Top Dog Dies and the Twinery Hop

Welcome to another team up blog hop with Top Dog Dies and the Twinery!  I am loving all these hops that Top Dog Dies are doing with other companies, it is so fun to use the various products and see how everyone is inspired.  Of course, I love have you all come by and check out my creations too, thank you! As you know of course there will be prizes, so keep reading!


I am sure you already know all about the Twinery, they are awesome and have some fun in store.  Did you know their twine is made from 100% cotton and made in the USA?!  Yep!  You can use it for baked goods, cards, you name it!  Baker's twine adds a fresh, yet nostalgic look to any project at hand! And they have so many colors!!!  EEEK! I just love it.  

Here are the two cards I made for this hop.  I used the same color scheme and DP for both.  This color combo is so fun.  For the first card i used the Top Dog Dies Pretty Petals Dies Set and strung them across the Charcoal twine.  It really stands out against the little bag (which is the perfect size for a gift card).  The stamps are from Reverse Confetti. 


 For the second card i used the Top Dog Dies Laurel Lace Border Die and stitched the Strawberry solid twine in between the flourishes.  It was fun to do a little hand sewing with the twine!!!!  I embossed the RC sentiment in pink on this card.  Both were easy and fun to make and I love that they each have a different feel.  



OK, on with the fun!  This is a three day hop and you need to check back on Tuesday and Wednesday for the the rest of the hop!  If you come back of course there are prizes!  The Twinery is giving away a $25 dollar gift certificate and Top Dog Dies is offering up a $50 gift certificate for wafer thin dies.  So be sure to hop all the way through, comment and hit the company blogs too to enter there be either commenting or using Rafflecopter.  Here is the full list for all the days.
