It's Your Big Day Tonic September Craft Kit :D



A couple of quickish washy Nuvo mousse cards using the Tonic September Craft Kit :D I love this colour of Nuvo mousse, I don't have this one, so I've been thoroughly enjoying playing with it :D And I thought this little hat image paired with the 'it's your big day' sentiment would make quite a nice masculine wedding card, so I kept the colours simple, mixing in the gold mousse with some grey Nuvo Creative Pens for the hat :D I hope you liked this simple design :D This kit is such a fantastic way to try lots of different Tonic products too, as you get a wide variety of bits and pieces to play with :D :D :D

Merry Christmas - Tonic Christmas Special :D


I don't think I could have made two so completely different looking cards with this set of goodies lol, I suppose it shows just how different of a style you can achieve from this Special Editions mix of Tonic Freebies :D :D :D For the actual magazine, my feature was making kinetic or interactive cards, I love the way my spinner card turned out :D I created a back view to the carol singer so that when she spun your had the front a back views :D I also combined the free dies with some of the Tonic Christmas Buildables too, these sets are so adorable, and I will have some videos up using them nearer Christmas, as I'm only really posting Christmas cards at the moment if it's a Christmassy magazine freebie :D :D :D Anyway, I hope you liked the cards, I'm not that keen when I make two cards in the same video that look so different as they don't look that great together in a photo, but I think I do like them both when they're by themselves lol :D :D :D

Main products used in this video :D

Away in a Manger with Copic Markers :D


 I love this gorgeous Wild Rose Studio stamp in the Away In A Manger stamp set free with issue 48 of Creative Stamping :D For my feature in this issue, I was using watercolour pencils to colour in my stamped images, so I thought I would use alcohol markers in my video :D AND, I'm using COPICS!!!!! It's my 25th Birthday in November, and my Mum, Dad and Nan are getting me some Copic Markers as a special present, and they've let me pick out a selection to have early so I can practice with them :D So I thought why not test them out on this stunning image :D I love creating a background like this (I call it my faux bokeh) and it's fab with Copics, because you have some many similar light colours you can really get a good variation without having to use your blended too :D Hope you liked the card :D
