Thank you card – Tonic Studios

Hello everyone and happy Saturday!!! Today I´d like to share another clean and simple card with you. This time I´ve again used Tonic Studios die cut dies – the German sentiment selection of them – on my card with Distress Inks.

I first inked the background of my card base with yellow, green and blue toned Distress Inks to create interest. Then I took the Tonic Studios Thank You Blossom die cut set and die cut some hybrid papers from my stash. The paper has a woodgrain type of pattern on it´s own and created a really nice look to the heart shapes thru that.

I adhered all pieces on place using the Nuvo Glue Pen. It works really well with delicate die cut pieces. For decoration, I added some faux stitching with a black pen around the edges and also took Atlantic Drift Glitter Accents and applied those as centers to the flower patterns. That´s it, a simple and easy to do card.

So what have you been upto recently, craft wise? Wish you a great, crafty weekend, lovelies!!!

Fall themed tags

Hi there everyone and happy Monday! I recently bought make-up blending brushes from SØSTRENE GRENE and found them very useful as blending brushes for crafting! So I experimented a little :).

I took some Indian Gold and Burnished Bronze Embellishment Mousse out to play and applied them with the blending brush onto a piece of white cardstock. And the results I got! So smooth, even application and the brush glides on paper like a dream.

Here is one of the results from that playtime –  a set of fall themed tags:

For this tag I die cut the Burnished Bronze tinted piece with an oval die cut die from Tonic Studios. Then I die cut a tag – die by STAMPlorations and inked that with the same brush, but this time using Ocean Blue Distress Ink. For decoration I dug deep into my older stash and added some lovely Basic Grey stickers, some golden sequins (Tonic Studios) and faux stitching with a white pen. For decoration I also added some Harvest Moon Nuvo Glitter Accents onto the rose design here and there. 

For the second tag I first die cut it (same die by STAMPlorations), then placed a stencil onto the tag (my Trees 1 stencil) and applied a heavy coat of the Brusnished Bronze Embellishment Mousse with the blending brush onto the tag. I let that layer dry before I went over the complete tag surface again, this time applying only a soft layer of the same mousse. Now you can see the Trees 1 pattern hues on the background, but the pattern is much softer and blends into the background. I really like how it looks! 

Next I again added a Basic Grey sticker from my very old stash on top for decoration. Then added some sequins (Tonic Studios) and some Harvest Moon Glitter Accents here and there. The tag got finished off with a October Afternoon (old stash) sticker that was outlined with a black pen.

Too bad you cannot see the amazing shimmer of the tags – but you get the idea from the very first photo. It´s gorgeous and looks quite noble.

This is it for today, do come by on Wednesday for another Christmas Card Wednesday!
Happy crafting,
