Alles Gute – Tonic Studios

Hello lovelies, today I´d like to share a feminine birthday card with you. This one has some gorgeous papers on it, designed by Aga Baraniak. Also it features some new Tonic Studios die cut dies.

Since the background paper (by Aga Baraniak) is so very pretty on it´s own, I didn´t want to add anything to it, but just left it as it is. To add tot he beautiful look, I just die cut the Rainbow Rose die cut pattern from pink cardstock (both by Tonic Studios). This particular die is not available at the Tonic Store just yet, but if you look for Edge Dies, you will find a selection of similar ones, like this Ranbow Rose die.

For decorational elements I used some flowers from my older stash (boy, I still have so many of those..). Also a piece of twine decorates the flower border which I created by wripping some hydrangea flowers apart and adding the petals to the card as a „line“. Then I just die cut the German Tonic Sentiment „Alles Gute“ and cut it apart to adhere it in a linear manner. That´s it. A very romantic looking card was done in no time.

Wishing you a great Sunday and happy crafting,

16th Birthday Card for a boy

Helllo everyone, I shared a teen boy birthday card two days ago and while I was at it, I made a second card in a similar style.

This one is a little bigger in size, measuring 5,5 x 5,5 inches. For this card I´ve again used the Lattice stencil from my STAMPlorations stencil line, but this time applying the blue and green colour in a more random way and also fading the color towards the edges of the card.

Fior decoration I again used some older stash stickers to create the focal point and some banners on the upper right corner. I stamped the sentiment using hashtag stamps by Tim Holtz and added the number 16 (Thickers) into the middle. For additional decor there are again some Glimmer Glaze splatters as well as Nuvo Confetti Stars here and there.

I really enjoyed creating these simple cards a lot – haven´t been doing any masculine cards for a while..

Wishing you a lovely day and happy crafting,

Birthday card – Tonic Studios

Hello there everyone!!! Today I´ve got a very clean and simple birthday card idea to share. I´ve just used a striped patterend paper as my card background, then die cut a space for the sentiment with the negative die piece and then adhered the striped papers onto the card base.

After that I die cut the congratulations sentiment from blue patterend paper and adhered it in place with Nuvo Glue Pen. For additional detail I added some faux stitching around the edges and placed a fun sticker (Sassafrass) onto the bottom right corner for decoration. That´s a very easy-to-do and fast card idea for example for a childs birthday party.

This particular paper is from my older stash, so I linked similar looking papers for you into the supply list. Also the German sentiment featured here will be available at in April, so not yet listed in the supply list, but instead linked a similar die cut sentiment die.

That´s all from me today, see you soon with more card projects here on my blog!
Happy crafting,

Congratulations card – Tonic Studios

Hello everyone and happy Tuesday! I´ve got a different colored congratulations card prepared for you today. It´s for an orange-themed wedding reception. I´ve used mainly Tonic Studios products in combination with Distress Inks in yellow-orange-red range.

The centerpiece heart is one of the German sentiment die sets available at Tonic Studios UK online store as well as on I´ve first folded a piece of A4 sized paper into half to create my card base. I used white cardstock for this purpose.

I then inked the background with light yellow, yellow, light orange, orange and red Distress Ink tones gradually moving from a lighter tone to a darker one.

The centerpiece is die cut from white cardstock and adhered onto the piece with a Nuvo Glue Pen. The very middle piece is inked first in yellow then highlighted with some orange ink tone. Next I added some double sided adhesive onto a strip of red cardstock and die cut the words „Liebe“ (=Love) and „Glückwunsch“ (=Congratulations) form it using the new German Tonic Sentiment dies. These will be available at in April!!

For decoration I added some rose gold Nuvo Sequins around the heart. I really like how this card turned out, even though this is not my go-to color scheme.

This is it from me for today. Hope I could inspire you to create fun cards!!

Happy scrapping,

Christmas cards with glitter and colored images – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello everyone, it´s time for another Elizabeth Craft Designs guest design team post today. I really like using the Silk Microfine Glitter on Christmas cards and I´d like to share a set of Christmas cards with you today.

Here is another card I created:

Here is how I created the cards:

Step 1: Take two white Soft Finish Cardstock pieces which are cut into a card size and attach Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheets onto them.
Step 2: Die cut with Kaleidoscope and Geometric Background dies from the side where the double sided adhesive is on.
Step 3: Remove one layer of the protective sheet and apply one tone of Silk Microfine Glitter. Attach to the surface by rubbing the glitter with your finger.
Step 4: Now remove the protective sheet from the negative die cut parts and then apply the second glitter colour. Again attach to surface by rubbing with a finger.
Step 5: Stamp birds, bears, trees and stars from the Krista Schneider stamp set, colour with watercolour pencils and add glitter glue for detail. Let dry.
Step 6: Die cut the colored images with the matching die cut die sets.
Step 7: Create sentiment strips with stamping and heat embossing. Ink the paper strips to match the colours of the card backgrounds.
Step 8: Adhere all die cut pieces and the sentiment strip on place with liquid adhesive.

I also used some of the residue pieces to create two more cards. Here they are:

You can find the full start-to-finish tutorial to the above cards, as well as the glitter background cards on the following video:

This is it for this months tutorial, I hope you enjoyed it! Hope to see you next month for this years last tutorial.

Happy crafting,
