Your day card – Tonic Studios

Helo lovelies, today I´m sharing yet another card, created using mainly Tonic Studios product in combination with Distress Inks. For this card I blended the background in various orange ink tones and added a die cut heart into the middle as my centerpiece.

This heart die is one of the Tonic Studios German sentiment dies. I die cut it from white cardstock and adhered it onto the inked background with the Nuvo Glue Pen. It workds really well on die cut elements. Also, you coud use double sided adhesive sheets for adhering. Those will guarantee really easy to adhere and clean results.

For decoration I added some Nvuo Glitter Accents dots here and there.

So all in all this is a very clean and simple card and really easy to make. The sentiment in the middle says: “Today is your day”.

That´s all from me for today. See you soon again with more projects! Hope you will drop by my blog and take a look.

Happy crafting,

All the best – Tonic Studios

Hello lovelies, today I`m again sharing another Tonic Studios product based card. I am totally in love with the very delicate German sentiment dies which will be available in April. Here I´ve again used the “All the best”-one, this time with blue paper. I love how it really jumps off the card against the pink and gold toned background.

I´ve created the background by first stamping the rose images onto white cardstock, then pouring white embossing powder on top and heat setting with a heat gun. Next I took a blending brush out and applied pink, green and golden Nuvo Embellishment Mousse tones on top of the embossed roses fairly randomly. The mousse blends really nicely with a blending brush and the embossing powder resists it really well.

That resulted in this resist technique background. After that I added the die cut sentiment which I adhered with the Nuvo Glue Pen again. Works really well!! For additional interest I cut the paper into strips leaving open areas in between the stripes, that way the white card base peeks thru those areas and creates a nice contrast to the card. For finishing touches I adhered some silver Nuvo sequins here and there.

That´s all from me for today. I hope you get inspired to try some of the techniques out yourself!!! See you soon with more projects, so hope you´ll drop by for more :).

Für Dich – Tonic Studios

Hi there, today I´m stopping by to share a die cut card with you. This time I´ve used the Tonic Studios German die cut dies. This set is called “Für Dich Layering Die Set” and it consists of 7 pieces that you can layer in various ways.

Here is what I created:
I die cut everyting from white cardstock, then applied some Nuvo Embellishment Mousse with a blending brush onto the “Für Dich” sentiment piece. I left the rest of the frames untreated. The green cardstock is from the Tonic Studio March 2018 Kit.  I adhered the frames on top of the green cardstock, added some faux stitching around the edges and then decorated with the die cut flowers.

The flowers are from the Dainty Daisies coordinating stamp and die cut die sets. I first stamped the images with red ink onto white cardstock, then die cut the the coordinating die and finally colored the flowers with pink Distress Ink.

Before adhering the flowers on place I formed them into dimensional flowers using the Floral Crafters Tool Set. For decoration I added some Nuvo Sequins in silver. I really like these dimentional flowers alot!

That´s all from me for today, hope your week is getting along nicely!

TAGplorations February Challenge Reveal – STAMPlorations

Hi there everyone and  Happy February!!! The beginning of a month always means that it is time for a new challenge share!! Today I´m sharing the TAGplorations February Challenge Theme and my take on it:

So this months theme is love and as an optional element you are asked to use cupcakes. There are plenty of lovely cupcake themed products at the STAMPlorations store, just in case you don´t own any ;-)…

Here is my take:

I used the stitched tag die to cut the pink misted paper (using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist Pink Poodle) with my Big Shot. Next I placed the Hidden Hearts stencil on top of the tag and brushed some Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide thru the stencil onto the background. I  really like to use this tone-in-tone look alot lately!

Next I stamped some flowers onto white cardstock and colored them with a water tank brush and Distress Oxides. Then I fussy cut the flowers and die cut the “happy” word and adhered everything on place.

A stamped sentiment on the bottom left corner, some Glimmer Glaze droplets and Nuvo Stars confetti finish off this tag. Now it´s again your turn to play – be sure to follow the rules, when submitting your projects (see the details here). Looking forward to seeing your projects!!

And as always, feel free to use my discount code at the STAMPlorations store to get 20% off your order!!

Happy stenciling,
