Let it shine twinchies

Posted by

Twinchies to go with the coins that are swapped are such fun to make. I really enjoy making these little gifts for the participants. And I like doing them in small batches till I have enough for all the people taking part.

This first set I embossed into the thick cardstock one of the Tim Holtz dies. Then coated the whole piece with the pebeo fantasy moon paint.

Next I heat embossed the star (Craft Stamped magazine freebie) with white onto the Tissue wrap.

Then the sentiment is a Kim Dellow one which I stamped in white craft ink onto black shrink plastic and heat up.

This makes such a cute sentiment embellishment.

This time I took a patterned paper and cut it into panels and then heat embossed in glittery gold the patterns from an Emma Godfrey set. I then used the same Kim Dellow sentiment and heat embossed that in gold onto the cream card.

This was a mixed media heavy panel… Dylusions covered with Tim Holtz tissue wrap with copper paint and then heat embossed the Kim Dellow pattern. Then cut it into the panels and added the same shrink plastic sentiment embellishments along with a little bit of a sparkle pen in black… because it needed more shine!

All in all 18 twinchies (all mounted on black card) ready for the swap.

But then… another 9 swaps arrived… so another 9 twinchies were made!

This time I used a die cut scrap as a stencil for adding the background stars using white embossing powder onto twinchies I had added Black Soot distress oxide to. Then the edges I added the black sparks paint using a sponge. Then I chose a Darcy Paperartsy star and embossed it onto the tissue wrap and cut them out to adhere on top.

Then a scrap coloured with the black sparks paint and embossed the word shine using alpha stamps.

Simple but effective little twinchies to finish off the most popular swap so far!

Happy crafting!
