Seasons Givings Blog Hop Year 3!

Hello everyone!  It is the 3rd year of the Seasons Givings Blog Hop!  It's only my 2nd year doing this blog hop, but it is such an honor to be a part of.  Thank you to everyone who has followed my journey the past 4 years, and hopefully 2015 is a giant year for me!  If you're not subscribed to my blog, please do so!  I will be posting more this year - so expect more projects, videos, and products!
You probably just came from Avocado Arts

Today I'm featuring the Needle & Thread Die Set, which is super fun to use and so diverse!  And guess what?  You have a chance to win your own Needle & Thread Die Set!  Just enter using Rafflecopter and leave a comment on this post.




This first card is super cute - I used the small spools, and they actually emboss so that it looks like there is thread on there!  For the middle one, in Kraft paper, I used Airmail twine and wrapped it around the spool to create the same effect.  I do that often using this die set.
Recipe: 

  • Kraft cardstock
  • Red cardstock
  • Navy cardstock
  • Silver paper
  • Airmail Divine Twine
  • Ranger Archival Ink in Cobalt  






This next card is one of my favorites.  It's a shaker!  I absolutely love shaker cards because they're so much fun to make!  It really does look like a spool, doesn't it?  
Recipe:
  • Pink cardstock
  • Kraft cardstock
  • Silver paper
  • Acitate
  • Foam
  • Glitter/Sequins/anything sparkly!
  • Ranger Archival Ink in Jet Black


My final card is a slight variation of the first - I just used the bigger spool.  I love the color scheme for this one!  If you know me, you know I like darker colors (I'm pretty sure all my clothes are black), so doing a light card was fun.
Recipe:

  • White cardstock
  • Jillibean Soup paper
  • Green cardstock
  • Kraft cardstock
  • Silver paper
  • Pink Divine Twine
  • Archival Ink by Ranger (Wendy Vecchi collection) in leaf green
