Twinchies

   My ATC group decided to exchange Twinchies this month- I had a blast making these!  I took out my Technique Junkies box of backgrounds and some collage sheets and went to town.........
   Twinchies are 2" x's 2"

This is for the 1-4-1 exchange in our group- I used a faux metallic background through the Cuttlebug

We made 20 Twinchies and exchanged 2 for each participant.  Here are a few of the styles I made:


 I used Ranger Distress Stains for the background and added some stained German Scrap and sewed it on.


 This is the Faux Washi technique (Technique Junkies), German Scrap and on the Rt- McMahon Five Designs Breast Cancer freebie digi image plus rhinestones.


 More Graphics on Metallic Parchment background (Technique Junkies).


Wax paper resist with a Cuttlebug Folder- German Scrap at the top. 



More scrap and Ranger Distress stain on the LT- On the Rt a tissue paper technique (TJ'S). I used Nestabilities to cut out a heart and an inner heart.  On the open area in between them, I added Crystal Effects and added micro-beads.  The top layer has a sentiment lightly stamped in pink.......


 On the Lt- a shimmery black background made with Opalite purple inks dabbed on and really shimmery purple with gold twinkling H2O's paper- I punched out hearts and added a sentiment. For the snowflake- I put Metallic tape thru the Cuttlebug and cut out a snowflake. I added it to a phonebook page that has Ranger Inks in blues and added foil tape around the edge.

These are the Twinchies I recieved in the trade:
Top Lt- my 1-4-1 trade from Mari ; Top Rt Lori
Bottom-Cindy (Rt bleach stamping)

Top Mari and bottom Carol (on the Lt- an Ikea bag, on the Rt- metallic slide nount)

Top Diane S. using fun new products- on the Rt- uses Tim Holtz border die
Bottom- Mary W.

 Top Debbie and Bottom Marcie

Top Diane M. and bottom Harriet.

Fun Fun- there is a Swap at Gingersnaps for Twinchies- I think I will keep making these- they are so much fun!  There are alot of ideas here too! 

Which one is your favorite???

Thanks for stopping by!
