Oxide Glaze Backgrounds with Papercuts Silhouettes :D


A pair of bright eye catching Christmas cards using the brand new word orientated festive silhouette dies from Papercuts and Creative Expressions :D I've also teamed the 'A Child is Born' sentiment up with the 'Believe' word from Sue Wilson's Festive Release too as I thought it would go perfectly :D The background is an adaptation of a Tim Holtz technique, but using Vaseline instead of Distress Micro Glaze :D

Main products used :D

Happy 20th Birthday Tonic :D


I've decided to put both my 20th Birthday videos in the same blog post, as I kept them coordinating and used the same colour scheme :D The large exclusive birthday die set is so versatile with tonnes of different basic shapes inside as well as the ability to create 3 different variations of party bags/gift bags too :D But obviously the new stencil and Nuvo products have to be my favourites :D :D For the Nuvo there's 2 exclusive colours of Nuvo drops, which coordinate perfectly with the Blue Blossom colour trend (if you got any of that last year) and then there is a gorgeous pink icing Nuvo Glacier Paste too, a much subtler tone than the Mambo Melon from the Tropical Paradise colour trend :D I decided to use it thinly through the stencil to give a subtle effect, applying it with one of the the Nuvo sponges :D I hope you've been enjoying the 20th Birthday events for Tonic! I thought I'd leave my post till the end as you might have already gotten some of the items in the post if you ordered on Monday :D Have a fab day! Christine xxx

Here's my card making video, just using a few of the dies from the exclusive party bag set :D


And here's making one of the gorgeous party bags :D Both video use all the exclusive Nuvo products too :D


Main products from the Birthday Event :D

Northern Lights Sky with Designer Boutique Festive Silhouettes :D


These new Designer Boutique DL Rubber Stamps and so gorgeous! They are packed full of little details that you don't initially notice, and this woodland one has to be my favourite of the lot! That squirrel running up the tree and the tiny little rabbits are sooooo adorable!! And as soon as I saw this stamp set, I just knew I wanted to give a Northern lights kind of sky a go :D I decided to start with a base of Matt Chalk Polishes which I watercoloured on and then I added some Iridescent Cosmic Shimmer watercolours over the top and the tones from the Summer Garden set worked perfectly :D :D Hope you enjoyed the video :D :D xxx

Paper Panda Festive Stag Quartet :D


Have you seen these stunning new dies?!? They're called Paper Panda, and I got to work with some of the fab festive designs :D I am in love with this stag die and I think there's more in the collection too, and the word dies are just as gorgeous too, and so versatile too :D :D I had great fun making a whole A4 messy inky background with tonnes of Cosmic Shimmer for these cards, and adding salt into the metallic products I'd used gives such a marvelous result :D :D xxx

SSS Gorgeous Poppies Background with Scribble Sticks :D


I missed the crafty hugs release from Simon Says Stamp, so I thought I'd use the 'So Far So good' stamp set from that release along with the stunning Poppies Background stamp from the new Send Happiness release together to create some fun heat embossed and watercolour cards with some Dina Wakley Scribble Sticks :D Enjoy xxx

Layered Art Deco Die-Cuts with Tonic Craft Kit #34 :D


I'm trying to get my videos up super quick this month, so if you missed my Un-Boxing video I posted it on the day the kit officially launched :D :D In that video you will have seen my samples, so there'll be one more video to follow after this which I'll probably save for later in the month :D :D This video shows the intended way to use the dies, and in the other video I show you lots of ways to use the Nuvo products from the kit, so keep your eyes peeled for that :D :D :D Enjoy xxx
