Hello Tonic Craft Kit #20 :D

 

Another pair of more masculine cards, this time using the little dragonfly die from the kit along with one of the stunning sentiment strip dies from Tonic and some Nuvo Pure Sheen Glitter too :D I couldn't wait to use the woodgrain paper from the kit, and I thought it'd work great to make little faux wooden frames, and then I thought why not pick out some glitters to create some interesting focal pieces with the tiny dragonfly die :D And I also threw in some of the brand new Champagne Shine sequins from the kit along with the two tones of Nuvo drops too to add the final embellishments :D Hope you enjoy the video! The final one using the kit will be up tomorrow, and it shows a couple of boxes :D

Happy Birthday with Tonic Craft Kit #20 :D



A pair of masculine Birthday Card using the 'waste' arrow pieces from the dragonfly box die that's exclusive to Kit #20 :D I used the brand new Woodland Walk Nuvo Shimmer Powder and Mica Mist along with cling film to create the background, then I used the Woodland Walk paper pad and card also from the kit for all the arrow elements :D As well as the two gorgeous brown tones of Nuvo drops too :D I pre-made my swirled Nuvo drops in the video because I wanted to have some of them overlapping the die-cut arrows and didn't want them to get mis-shaped from being on two different heights :D Hope you liked this way of using the kit, you could always wait until you've made few boxes, then just use the leftovers for a few cards :D

Clean and Simple Card with Tonic Keepsake Insert Creator Dies :D


A clean and simple card using the stunning patterned panel die from one of the brand new Keepsake Insert Creator dies from the Memory Book range from Tonic Studios :D I absolutely love this design and just had to make a card with it :D I did one of my favourite methods of cutting the intricate die and the solid backing piece, sticking them together (being careful that no glue squidges out), and then I add colour with alcohol pens :D For an extra special look, you can even spray on some spray glue and add glitter too :D I'm also in love with those little hole reinforcers, they look like the Tonic bubbles! So cute, and the greatest little accent for a card too :D :D Hope you liked the card, and to see the other cards and the memory books I made using this brand new die sets, check out my Up Close & Personal video linked below :D

Happy Birthday with Sparkle Pens :D


My final card making video using the Crafter's Inspiration #21 Magazine Box Kit with Sparkle Pens and Harmony Ink Pads :D There'll also be another video up later this evening showing all the cards I made for the magazine in a kind of 5 ways with one box kit sort of video :D Anyway, for this card I used the Floral Garden Sparkle Pens to create my background, then I was playing around with stamping with Sparkle Pens and the Harmony Ink Pads using the free stamps from the kit, and the free stencil to add on some subtle pattern with tone on tone ink blending too :D I then finished the card with the free 'Happy' word die, and one of the sentiments too, then finally a scattering of gems and white pen detail :D Hope you liked the card! :D
