Nuvo Embellished Cascading Hearts :D


I love doing Nuvo Embellished cards where I fill different areas with different products from Nuvo, so I thought I'd do a version using the BRAND NEW Nuvo Expanding Mousse and Nuvo Vintage Drops :D :D :D The brand new Nuvo Vintage drops are a fabulous addition to the Nuvo range, not only do they come in some fab new packaging, based on a vintage perfume bottle, with a cute little hexagonal gem on the top and little label too, but they also have a new finish to them once they're dry, they have a gorgeous satin matte finish that takes 48 hours to completely develop :D :D Have a look at some of the up close photos below to see the difference in finish between the new vintage drops and the original gloss finish :D :D There will also be an up close video coming soon to my Know How channel too, giving you an in depth look at the brand new colours :D :D :D Hope you enjoyed the video!

Tonic Craft Kit #13 with Lawn Fawn Papers :D



Obviously, I just had to do some paper piecing with the gorgeous chevron detail die from this months Tonic craft kit!! and I thought why not use some of the new Lawn Fawn papers :D and if you go for a small pattern that is tone on tone, it doesn't matter if you put the pieces in a different order than they were cut as you can't tell :D :D and once you've filled in as much as you want, you can do my usual trick of adding on some Nuvo glitter, this is also great to fill in any gaps around the paper pieced pieces, as we were double cutting some sections and the die isn't completely uniformly repeating, it did change some of the areas slightly, but I think the extra bits of glitter that stuck to the exposed adhesive look really good, it's almost like a glitter drop shadow :D :D Hope you liked this extra bit of inspiration using the kit! I also stuck the inside of the gift card box on the inside so you can add a gift card into the little pocket too :D

Nuvo AquaFlows on Vellum Shaker Card :D


A bright vibrant subtle shaker card :D I was experimenting trying out my Nuvo AquaFlows on vellum, it does curl quite a lot, but you can easily flatten in out :D And I was very surprised that a water based product would dry so quickly on vellum too, so overall a fab experiment :D :D I also did a second card using this same stripey vellum, so that video should be up sometime in the next month too :D I really love getting to experiment :D Oh, and the subtle background for this card was done by cutting the stunning hello sentiment strip die from funky foam, snipping off the ends and heat embossing in shimmering pearl embossing powder :D :D :D
