Twinchies Set feat CC Designs and Nuvo Shimmer Powders


Hi everyone! Today I am back with post and a video showing you how I created a cute set of four Twinchies for the challenge on the CC Designs Facebook Group!
Twinchies are simply mini cards sized at 2x2”. It was the first time for me making them, and they are super fun and quick to make. They would be great as a quick thinking about you project or to accompany a small size present. They also just look great as a decoration for your crafty space! 
For these ones I created some fun backgrounds with my new Nuvo Shimmer Powders, and I am in love with the texture and the shimmer I obtained!


I have two sets of backgrounds: for two of them I used Solar Flare and Cherry Bomb, and for the other two I used Blue Blitz and Violet Brocade. I sprinkled the powders on some Windsor and Newton Cotman Watercolor cardstock, spritzed it with water, and left it to dry.


The images I used today are from the CC Designs Roberto’s Rascals Viking Kids set. I stamped them on Neenah Solar White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with Spectrum Noir markers.
In the graphics below you will find a list of all the markers I used, I also show the coloring for one of the kids in the video tutorial I created for this project. This color chart is a new feature on my blog, and it was inspired by what I saw on Koren Wiskman's and Mindy Eggen's blogs. Let me know what you think about it and if you'd like me to keep making charts like this one :)


I used the smallest die in the Reverse Confetti Scalloped Squares Set to die cut my backgrounds and then I moved on and created the card bases. I obtained them out of white heavyweight cardstock and stamped the sentiments on the inside. I picked two of the sentiments in the Heffy Doodle Interactively Yours stamp set. I stamped one with Memento Dew Drops in Danube Blue on the inside of the Twinchies with the blue/purple background,


and the other with Memento Dew Drops in Rose Buds on the inside of the Twinchies with the pink/yellow background. 



I adhered the background and the images on the card bases and my twichies are done! Aren't they adorable?!

I also created a video tutorial for this project, you can click here to watch it on my YouTube channel!

And that's it for today! I really hope you guys enjoyed this post and liked my mini cards! I will be back soon with another fun project, and, in the meantime, I wish you all a great day!
