Clearsnap and The Twinery Product Showcase + A Giveaway!

***Although The Twinery team is posting their projects today......Please be sure to visit the Clearsnap blog tomorrow, Saturday, May 5, to see what their designers created with our products.***

 Hello! Today Clearsnap and The Twinery are partnering up and you can see the results on The Twinery blog and Clearsnap blog today. 

The Twinery is offering up a Colorful Bunch Sampler pack ($20 value) to one commenter on the blogs.  Increase your chances of winning by commenting on all the blogs!  You can find a complete list of participating designers on The Twinery blog.  To be eligible to win prizes from The Twinery, comments must be left on each participating blog Deadline for comments is 11:59pm EDT, Sunday, May 6th.

Here are my cards:
 Both cards feature stamps from My First ColorBox mini stamps- Flutters.  For the first card I used  Colorbox Classic Pigment Cat's eyes in Lettuce, Banana Custard, Plum Berry.  I tied some coordinating baker's twine by The Twinery- Honeydew, Cantaloupe and Orchid,  around the bottom of the card:

For the second card, I used ColorBox Pigment Stamp Pad Playground and hit the pad directly to paper.  I stamped the butterfly on vellum and used some Pink Sorbet baker's twine (The Twinery) to create the butterfly trail:
 
Don't forget to head on over to The Twinery to check out what the other designers did with the same stamp sets.  Special thanks to Clearsnap for the beautiful stamps/inks to play with. 

Thanks for stopping by!

As always, Cammie, your projects make me want to drop everything and run to my desk to create! Both are so much fun! Love your use of the twine - you are so clever! And Clearsnap makes the very BEST inks! I just stamped with Prussian Blue last night. I wish I could afford every color :) Have a great day!

Beautiful card, love the one with the butterflies on kraft-so cute! Had to laugh at your second card-visit my blog for the Clearsnap/The {Stamps} of Life blog hop today and you'll know why. Guess great minds think alike? LOL

Perfectly lovely cards! The techniques you used in your second card make for a lovely card. I'll have to try stamping on vellum myself now.

I'm a fan of the kraft paper look and I love the bright colors on the second card as well. Love how the twine on the first one matches with the colors of the butterflies. :)

Very pretty! I love the clear, bright colors- I always gravitate towards those over pastels. The twine 'trail' is perfect for the 'flutterbyes' :)
