Glückwunsch – Tonic Studios

So I have been creating with the Tonic Craft Kit 07 abit during Easter and today I´m sharing a card that resulted from my playtime.

For this card I used a white card base and a raspberry pink cardstock from Tonic Studios. The lovely stamp image is from the Tonic Craft Kit 07 and I´ve stamped it with embossing ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. After heat embossing I colored the image with the Nuvo Watercolour pens (blue tones) and Nuvo Alcohol Markes (in pink tones) and also with the Shimmer Powder (green tones). Finally I die cut this image with the die cut dies that came with the Kit 07. Also the German sentiment is by Tonic Studios (available at QVC) and it is also colored with the Shimmer Powder. In the end I just added a faux stitching around the edges to highlight the card a little bit more.

I am not much of a colorer, but I still liked playing around with the different pens, I am thinking, the more I practise, the better the results will get in time. Oh, I also sneaked some Nuvo Glitter Drops to the flowers to add a slight sparckle here and there.

That´s it from me for today, see you around with more projects soon,
happy crafting,

Clean and simple birthday card – Tonic Studios

Hi there, everyone, today I´d like to share a pinkish clean and simple birthday card with you. For this card I used plenty of Tonic Studios product.

Here is what I did:
1. Take a stencil of your choice and place it onto a white card base.
2. Apply Nuvo Embellishment Mousse Pink Flambé thru the stencil, using a palette knife, onto the card base.
3. Remove the stencil and clean under running water. Let the paste air dry.
4. Adhere a pink polka dot banner to the card. Decorate the banner with Sherbert Shimmer Nuvo Crystal Drops. Let air dry.
5. Add faux stitching with a black pen around the edges.
6. Decorate with a pink paper flower and silver glitter paper dots.
7. Add black Glimmer Glaze droplets on three areas to create a visual triangle onto the card (this makes the card more interesting to look at).
8. Finish the card off with a sticker sentiment.   This is what the finished card looks like. By changing the colors of the card you can create several similar once while you are at it and use them for various purposes, depending on the occation.

Wishing you all a lovely Sunday and a great new week!

Clean and simple teen boy birthday card – Tonic Studios

Hello lovelies, today I´d like to share a teen boy birthday card with a video tutorial  with you. For this card I´ve used mainly Tonic Studios product – starting from the paper cutter until the decorational elements, created with Nuvo Mousse.

Here is the card I created:

I used the Tonic Studios Verso Striped Number dies to create the focal point of this card and added a Tonic Studios German die cut sentiment to go with the card. There are now plenty of sentiments available also in German at Tonic Studios which is really great.

For decoration I added some Nuvo Mousse Teal droplets onto the background and finished the card off with some cork stars. All in all this Card is really easy (and quite fast) to make. I kept to a very clean and simple style, since the card IS created for a boy´s birthday.

To give you a better idea of the card creating process, I again recorded a video for you to watch – hope you like it:

There is a full set of number dies available, so you can basically create a card for any occation with them! I really enjoyed creating this card – I am going to need one for a 18th birthday very soon too and I already have the tools for that at home :).

Have a lovely, creative weekend, everyone!

Congrats card – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello there lovelies and happy 1st of May!!! I hope you have all found some time for creating on this long weekend? I had planned on creating plenty, but then somehow I/we ended doing everythig else, but that. But it has still been a nice, relaxing weekend, so it is all good!

Today I´m quickly sharing a birthday card I created with Elizabeth Craft Desings products. This one went to my husbands gradma with flowers. She just celebrated her birthday recently.

I´ve first misted the background with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, then die cut the speech bubble form and used an embossing folder to create the pattern to it. Then I die cut several pieces of the word „Congrats“, adhered those on top of each other to create more depth and then decorated the card with some liquid pearls, twine, flowers and finished the sentiment with a layer of Glossy Accents for more dimension.

Wishing you all a lovely evening and a creative week!

Wishing you… – SST, round 4

Hello lovelies! Today I´d like to share with you my take on the SST round 4 challenge „Hide and Seek“. Like the name of the round says, the challenge is all about hidden elements on a card.

These are the requirements:
Theme, colour, size and type: free

To be used:
– Make hidden elements on the card: minimum of two.
– The hidden part of the elements should not be visible at first sight! It needs opening before one can see what is hidden inside.
– Size of the elements is free
– Type of the elements is free
– One element has to be on the top of the card, the other(s) can be on top or on the inside.
– Think of elements that needs to be moved or turned in order to read the title or quote of the card. Like a hidden note under a flap, a wheel that can be turned, popup etc.
– It is ok if a pulling mechanism is visible. Such as a piece of paper, a fiber or ribbon, a brad used for turning a wheel.

Not to be used:
– All kinds of ink (including spray ink and misting ink)
– No paint of any sort
– No stamps
– No gesso
– No chalk

And here is my take – a interactive camera card with elements to be opened on the front and on the inside of the card.

So what did I do? I first cut a camera out of black cardstock, glued it down on the front and then added a zoom on top of the camera which can be opened and inside the zoom there is a sentiment.

And when you open the card, inside it there is a film strip with a film roll in there. The film strip has flaps which can again be flipped open to be able to see the rest of the birthday sentiment.

All the sentiments and the few decorational elements are stickers. The rest is just white, black and foil cardstock.

So this is my take on the round 4 challenge. This was not the easiest task for me to do, as I usually do not make that many interactive cards, but it sure was a fun one to make and gave me lots of ideas for the future, too.

Thanks for stopping by! Wish me luck..I am crossing my fingers, as there are so many talented girls in the competition, that I probably will not make it to round 5, but I have truly enjoyed the challenges so far and it has been really so much fun ♥. Wishing good luck everyone who is still in the game!!!

xoxo, Sanna
