Black White and Red 75th Birthday Card :D



Another commission card :D This time I was given the brief he'll be 75, he's called John, he likes the red arrows, he likes cooking, is always playing solitaire, they used to have a caravan and he likes crime dramas :D I didn't quite manage the crime drama aspect, but other than that I think I managed to squeeze in a hint of everything else :D I also added some actual red arrows as a pun too hehehe :D :D Liz, who commissioned the card for her husband, really loved it, so I hope he did too :D There's such a mish mash of products on this card lol, but it's nice to have to think up a way of incorporating so many different themes into one card every once in a while :D :D :D

Winter Wishes with Tonic Craft Kit #11 :D


Another video using July's Tonic Craft Kit (Kit #11) :D You should be starting to receive your kits now, so I thought I'd put up a another nugget of inspiration :D I love that you get a selection of card in your kit, but once you've used all of that, you can pick other colours from your stash :D I really love the pale blue colours in the new Ocean Air Craft Perfect collection, and obviously that goes perfectly with snow flakes, so I have paired a couple of the new card colours with some Frosted Silver Satin Mirror Card (also from Craft Perfect :D) To give a pair of lovely frosty looking cards, I was also itching to use the stamp set, and the gorgeous bell die too (as I hadn't used them in my last video :D) so that's my excuse hehehe :D Hope you enjoyed the video and like the cards, have fun playing with your new Craft Kit! I can't wait to see what's in next months :D :D

Pretty Quick 90th Birthday Card :D


A birthday card commission for Alan's 90th :D I got the brief of he likes trains and model trains, walking, playing the church organ, is called Alan and is going to be 90, and I think I managed to kind of incorporate everything :D :D The landscape has a train in it (tick), it's full of countryside and he likes walking (tick) plus I added images of trainers in the background (double tick), I added 90th and Alan in the sentiment (tick) and finally I added in some musical notes to emulate that he likes music (kinda tick) hehehe :D :D :D Liz, who commissioned the card, was thrilled with the outcome, she even commissioned me another (which will be up next week :D) Hope you enjoyed a different way to use this Pretty Quick die :D

Birthday Love with Craft Perfect Festive Season :D


A stripy Birthday card using the fab Festive Season Craft Perfect Collection along with the new Swirl Flurry Tag Die Set :D This is a great card for using up and long scraps you have too :D Once I'd created my background, I used three rectangle dies to cut into my background, then I flipped the middle section by 180 degrees to switch up the order of the stripes :D This technique looks even more effective if you use square dies and only rotate the centre section by 90 degrees, it kind of gives a chevron look :D :D I'd probably work with circle dies too, but I haven't tried that lol :D You want to make sure you use double sided adhesive sheets, or wide double sided tape when doing this technique, otherwise you might get pieces dropping off once the panel has been die cut! :D Hope you liked the card! And of course, it'd make a great Christmas card too hehehe :D

So Proud of You Stylized Peacock :D


These are the stunning Bookmark and Tag dies from Tonic that have just been on Hochanda (links below) and why not look at them in a completely different way, and make a layered stylised peacock from the intricate tag die :D As soon as I saw the Swirl Flurry die I saw a peacock, and then I couldn't un-see it lol, so I just had to create one :D And I thought 'So proud of you' as a sentiment worked really well too :D Again I'm using the Arabian Nights colour collection from Craft Perfect (my favourite of the new 2018 colour trends :D) I love that all the Nuvo products for this year match perfectly, and so I've used the Spanish Sangria Nuvo Diamond Ink to stamp in the background, and I also used the Harvest Moon Glitter Accents as my embellishments too, but there are three stunning new colours of Nuvo drops that would have gone perfectly too :D :D :D Hope you liked the card :D

Tonic Craft Kit #11 Multiple Cards :D


A mammoth video today, creating eight cards with the Festive Wishes Tonic Craft Kit, Kit #11 for July :D :D I decided to leave in most of the footage for these cards (and I had more than 2 hours lol) that's why it's pretty much twice the length of my usual videos :D Pretty much every product in this kit is brand new, from the Festive Season colour trend for 2018, the cardstock only launched a couple of days ago on Hochanda! :D And the Nuvo Mousse and Aqua Flow haven't been released yet :D :D

I started off filming this video thinking I'd make two or three cards, but two and a half hours later I'd made eight cards lol :D It's nice to get a good stock of Christmas cards done early though :D I also used my Midas Touch Aqua Flow for the first time in this video, I couldn't leave the left over Red Matador pen on my mat, so I created an inky background and threw in the gold glitter (see card above :D) Hope you like this mix of cards, I tried to show a few ways to use the textured handmade papers with all the different Nuvo products included in the kit, because the Nuvo is always my favourite hehehehe :D I've filmed another video using the dies and stamps from the kit with blues and silvers that'll be up next week too :D
