Retirement card for a music lover

Hello everyone, I´m again stopping by to share another retirement card created for a colleague. The recipient of this card is a music lover, thus the music theme.

I´ve used mainly Tonic Studios products for this card – only the stamped sentiment is by Stampin´Up! and some of the cardstock is from my older stash.

The card is bigger in size than a regular card, so I folded the base myself from a piece of blue cardstock. Then I dry embossed the white paper and added a layer of Nuvo Mousse in gold onto the music notes. After that all I did was die cut the violine and the lace as well as the German sentiment. I adhered all pieces on place using the Nuvo Glue Pen.

For additional decór I added a few Nuvo Drops here and ther and stamped the sentiment in black. I sure hope the recipient likes his card.

Wishing you all a great start into the new week. I have been now working for two weeks again and starting from Monday there additional easing procedures will get active – like some school classes will again go back to schools and restaurants are open (with restrictions and new regulations, but anyways). Also at my work, people will return to the office (with mask obligation) instead of working in home-offices. Lot´s of changes after 63 days. It´s to be seen, how all this affects the infection curve – hoping there will be no further lockdown needed.

Xxx, Sanna


3 easy ways to use Nuvo Embellishment Mousse – Tonic Studios

Hello there, lovelies!! I have been busy creating for the upcoming QVC show, featuring the German Tonic Studios sentiments and lots of lovely other products on the 30th of May, 2018. So if you have been looking for the German sentiments, this is your chance!!!

While I was creating samples, I also recorded a short video about how to easily use Nuvo Embellishment Mousse (by Tonic Studios) on your card projects. On this video I share just three simple ideas, but there are so many more, however that will have to wait for another video later :).

So here is the video:

And then to the cards, since there are so many, I will first just share pictures of, say 3 of them today. The next ones will follow tomorrow and the day after, so if you are interested seeing them, do come back for more :).

So that was the first 3, I have used the backgrounds I created, in various ways, by cutting them in half or using just tiny die cut pieces or a full piece as a background. Also I´ve added plenty of other Nuvo and Tonic Product to the originally created background pieces. This way a few backgrounds go a long way and besides, it was so much fun to add other bits and bobs to the cards.

I ADORE the golden cardstock, it is sooo pretty!!! Check the full product list at the end of this post for more details on the used product. I love, love, love the gold, silver and pearl lines!! I think I need to stock some golden cardstock and the Mother of Pearl mousse for the future, I am aftraid to run out of it too fast 🙂 …

The ribbons and flowers as well as the brads are from my older stash, but they work really great with the new product. Also, the chipboard is by Wycinanka, from the time I was on their Design Team – still love using their fragile, delicate chipboard on my projects!!!!

I hope you get inspired to create your own card backgrounds and give the Nuvo Mousse a go youself. See you tomorrow for more cards!!!

Happy crafting,
xxx, Sanna
