Glückwunsch – Tonic Studios

Hello lovelies and happy Saturday!! I hope your weekend is getting along really nicely. We recently celebrated my son´s graduation from high school and of course I had created a DIY gratulation card for that occation for him. Here is what I did:

Since he was wearing a grey suit and was about to receive presents in grey, silver and black colors, I chose to create the card in the same colors.

I first stenciled the background with a Tonic Studios stencil and a grey stamp ink. Next I die cut the „Congratulations“ (in German: Glückwunsch) sentiment background piece from silver mirror cardstock and the main sentiment piece from black cardstock (both by Tonic Studios). I adhered them on top of each other before adhering the layered sentiment onto the card base. For decoration I chose some wooden stars. Have been hoarding them in my stash from my Studio Calico Kit submission times from way back.

And I also created a matching envelope to go with the card by adding some stenciling and stamping onto the white envelope, just leaving a tiny area in the middle empty to be able to add his name there.

It was truly a very special day – not just for him – but also for us, his parents. One proud mom moment :).

Happy, crafty weekend, lovelies,

Für Dich – Tonic Studios

Hello everyone and happy Saturday! Today I´d like to share a Shimmer Powder background card (incl. a video) with you. This is a very colorful and bright card, so very different to the last one I posted :).
I´ve used three tones of Tonic Shimmer Powder on the background with some white embossed leaf patterns and also added a pink delicate German Tonic Sentiment to the card. For decoration, I could not resist to add some Nuvo Drops onto the flower centers. For a change, I´ve crated a video for you to watch, featuring all the steps. I hope you like it!!


Wishing you all a great weekend & happy crafting,

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!
Happy crafting,
xxx, Sanna
