Happy Easter – Tonic Studios

Happy Easter Sunday everyone! Yesterday evening I was still creating this little Easter present – nothing like last minute pressure, eh? Well, I finished it in time, so all is good. What would you give a friend for Easter, who is trying to avoid sugar? A chocolate egg will not be appreciated by such a person, so I thought I´d just decorate a chocolate egg packaging and fill it with something else than chocolate eggs. Hope she likes it!
Here is what I did: First take a Indian Gold Nuvo Embellishment Mousse and apply it thru a stencil (this one happens to be one of my designs) with a palette knife/credit card onto the lid of a chocolage egg packaging.
Next add Nuvo Crushed Grape Crystal Drops and Sherbet Shimmer Drops randomly onto the cover.
While those layers on the lid are drying, take a piece of chipboard and Nuvo Glitter Pens (Northern Lights and Morning Moss) and color the chipboard with the pens. Then add some Nuvo Drops onto the „berry“ parts of the chipboard.
Next arrange the chipboard pieces onto the lid, then add a butterfly and some paper roses for additional decoration. Adhere everything with a strong paper glue.
Finally, add a stamped sentiment banner on top of the roses and decorate the rose petals with a pink Nuvo Gitter Marker. This is what the finished piece looks like:

I simply replaced the chocolate eggs with egg candles 🙂 – no sugar added 🙂

The chocolates in the photo are just for decoration – I might have eaten them myself, since my friend will not appreciate receiving them ;-).

Hope you have a lovely day with your loved ones,
Happy crafting,

Congrats – Tonic Studios

Hello there, everyone and happy Easter!! I recently received the Tonic Studios Craft Kit 07 and did a little play with the Shimmer Powder that was in the kit. I recorded a short video with some ideas, how this product can be used, so I am sharing it here with you today:

Also, after editing the video, I used some of the bits and pieces of paper I had created during testing the product, and created a set of cards. I really, really adore the green tones of this powder! And the best part, it comes with lots of shimmer too! If you haven´t tried the kits and the powders yet, you are missing out in my opinion :). Besides, this green toned powder works sooo well in combination with pink. It creates a perfect spring color tone combo:

I´ve also used some delicate butterflies on some of the cards – these are from the Tonic Craft Kit 06. I love how the stencil image turned out with the powder!

On this card I used the negative stencil image (from the video) and added some color to that piece using the pink Nuvo Glitter Marker from the Northern Lights Glitter Marker set. This also came with the Tonic Craft Kit 06, but is also available separately at the Tonic Studios store, if you are interested. I´ve added all the links to the used product at the end of this post, if you are interested on a particular product.

Here I used the powder with the stencil and embossing powder to create a fun resist background with it.

Finally, on my last card I used the light green background piece from the video and applied some Pink Opal Glimmer Paste thru the same stencil onto the surface for more interest and texture. There are also tiny dots here and there to decorate each card. I just cannot get enough of the Nuvo Drops  – <3 them!!!

Wishing you all a lovely Easter time with you loved ones!!!

Easel Butterfly cards – Tonic Craft Kit 06, project 02

Hello there, lovelies! Time for another Tonic Craft Kit 06 project share today. This is my very first ever easel card. I was a little scared to make an easel card (too many pieces to fold and adhere together and I thought I would for sure end with a big fail :-)…) BUT, I didn´t!

So while I was at it, I made two cards, the first one with the papers that were in the kit and a second card with cardstock from my stash. I love these butterflies! They are so very pretty and once I figured how to combine the dies to create the easel, it was really so much fun.

So this is the first card I created using the kit number 06. Everything, except the Antique Rose Novo Drops and the sentiment stickers are from the kit. I went a little overboard with the sparkliness of this card, but I really had a lot of fun playing and experimenting. And in the process I alse recorded a video for you to watch. It will give you a start-to-finish tutorial on how to build the single pieces together. So never mind the extremely over-colored and over-sprakled details on this card, it´s the building process I wanted to share with you.

And then for my second card – which in my opinon, is more me. I could not resist adding some glitter pen details on this one too, but I didn´t do as much as on the first one. Besides, adding the glitter pen detail onto a darker background creates a TOTALLY different look. I love how the glitter pen reacts with the darker paper!

I also stamped some mini butterflies onto the die cut pieces. The stamps also come in the kit, by the way.

I again added a motivational sticker sentiment to finish off this card. That and the cardstock papers I used, are not from this kit. I hope you enjoy watching the video. There will be more projects coming up soon again!

I think I am going to send the first, extremely sparkly card to my goddaughter – she loves sparkle and butterflies, so I am hoping that card will make her day :).

Happy crafting,
