Twinchies are all the Rage

Hello there bloggers,

Well it seems Twinchies are all the rage at the moment.  This week Show Us Your Twinchies are asking for "Summer" and the theme at Out of a Hat Creations is "Twinchies".

These are the first ones I made



La Blanche stamp, stamped with Archival black then inked with Squeezed Lemonade, Shaded Lilac and Peacock Feathers DI, then coloured with a touch of Barn Door. A touch of stickles and some Stampin Up Butterflies.

I was half way through making these when I remembered that I'd intended to try Paula Whittaker's highlighter pen technique (see this month's Craft Stamper), so I made a couple more ...



These images are Stampin Up, stamped with StazOn (it definitely is a blacker black than the Archival and I love the smell of StazOn)




This one is a PaperArtsy stamp. Stamped onto plain card and again onto the twinchie.  Sentiment is Stampin Up and I coloured the linen thread with a black Promarker.

So that's me "twinchied out" for this week.

Thanks for paying me a wee visit.

TTFN

So many twinchies!!! I want to have a go at that highlighter technique as well... couldn't believe the stunning results! I especially love the top two twinchies in the gorgeous new DIs.

Twinchielicious!! These certainly are wonderful Suze. I really like the last one with the yellow highlighter - been meaning to try that myself! I think you explained to me - ages ago - what a twinchie was and I still haven't made one. . . . Juliaxx
