What's a Twinchie you ask??? Well, Twinchie Squares are made of museum quality matboard. They have a solid white core and are bright white which makes it well suited for many different mediums including rubber stamping, markers, colored pencil, watercolor paints, etc. It's really great for stamping on and gives a really neat dimensional look to the card. Inchies are 1" squares and Twinchies are 2" squares. Ok, so our Bellarific Friday challenge was to use Twinchies on a card. Well, I was STUMPED because I couldn't figure out what image to use since all of my Stamping Bella images were too big. Hmmmmm, what to do, what to do??? I finally decided on Stella has something to say (my all time favorite Stamping Bella image) and thought I could use the frame around her to my advantage. I masked the bottom edge of the Twinchie and stamped the image on top. Then I removed the mask and using a fine tipped waterproof pen, I finished the frame along the bottom edge to match the top and sides. Pretty clever huh?? See, sometimes my brain DOES work!! I colored Stella with my Copics and matted the Twinchie with some SU Chocolate Chip CS punched with my Marvy scalloped square. This DP is from My Minds Eye and I matted each piece with SU Chocolate Chip and stitched around the edges. The flower is from the punch outs in the DP collection and I added a button tied with twine on top. What, no ribbon??? OMG!! Yeah, I know, I was just about to go crazy not putting any on it but it was only because I couldn't find a place!! ROFL!! I added some brads to the right of the image and added a little punched tag to finish. Ain't she a cutie???
