Christmas Pines Stamp Set used in a recent Demonstrator Swap!!

Todays' post is a great idea from another Stray Ducklings Card Swap.
It was made by Roseanne U. from Peoria, IL
She used the "Christmas Pines" Stamp Set & "Pretty Pines Thinlits"

Just in case you have not caught this before......
I share my passion for stamps, ink, and paper with a special "flock"
of ladies in Central IL called the "Stray Ducklings".
Whenever we are together, feathers fly because of all the fun we have! (smile)
(this is a quote from another duckling- Kelly I.)
This is SO true Kelly!!

If you would like to join us in teaching and sharing our love
of stamps, ink, and paper- please contact me!
You can waddle along with us and have SO much fun doing it.... HaHa

I appreciate YOU visiting today and everyday!
Lori Helvick

Timeless Textures & Lift Me Up Stamp Sets together make Masuline Birthday Card

 Color Combo:  Wild Wasabi, Tangerine Tango, Sahara Sand, White

Here is a list of some StampinUP Products used:
-  Timeless Textures Stamp Set
-  Lift Me Up Stamp Set
-  Up & Away Thinlits
-  Wild Wasabi Bakers Twine (Retired)
-  White Bakers Twine

Tips:  1) Use a marker to highlight just the words "Happy Birthday" instead of the whole stamp.
2)  You can cut the sentiment out with that different shape above (part of the
balloon die in the Up & Away Thinlits)
3)  I laid those 6 pcs. of twine on the front layer (2 AT A TIME)& scotch taped them on the back.
4) Leave a tiny gap between those pairs of twine
5)  Take an extra little pc. of twine, and gather in the middle & tie a knot.

Your knot will be hidden under the sentiment and this little trick will give your twine a gathered in
the middle look!!  (please ask if you don't understand)

Once again, I truly appreciate you stopping by.
If you like what you see on my daily blog posts- please tell a friend!
Thank you- Lori
