Tonic Christmas Dove and Peace :D

I love this stunning elegant Dove die from Tonic FREE with issue 28 of Die-Cutting Essentials which comes out today!! :D I got quite a wacky colour scheme for my magazine cards, but when I think of doves at Christmas I always think blues and silvers, so I just had to use that colour combo in my video :D :D You can see my Funky Christmas cards on the cover of this issue and inside too :D Tonic always make such fabulous dies, and this one is no exception!! It's still super top quality even though its a free gift, and I'd easily pay full price for it, in my opinion, I'm buying the die and getting the magazine free lol :D :D :D Hope you liked the card :D

Many Thanks Tonic Harvest Themed Card :D

A cute harvest themed card using a mix of Distress Oxide, Nuvo Embellishment Mousse and Nuvo Glimmer Paste to make a washy inky background :D I then used an older die set from Tonic for the ears of corn and of course I had to add in the adorable scarecrow from the Lawn Fawn Happy Harvest stamp set too :D I used my Tim Holtz Stamp Platform and my Nuvo Creative Pens for my main images, and added a scattering of Nuvo drops across the background to finish the card :D Hope you enjoy the video :D See you on Thursday for another Blog Tonic post using the stunning Dove die free with issue 28 of Die-Cutting Essentials :D :D :D

Spellbinders Untamed Scrolls Paper Piecing :D


A pair of fun paper pieced cards using some quite feminine Spellbinders dies, but giving them a masculine almost geometric feel :D I REALLY like how this weeks Spellbloggers cards came out! I had the idea of using the Label 33 dies as a filigree frame and adding the paper pieced Untamed Scrolls in the centre, but I didn't expect it to turn out this nice :D :D :D I've also used some of the leftover pieces of the different colours to create another background, and hopefully I'll get round to making that into two more cards like these, but I might switch up the greeting :D Hope you liked today's cards :D More Spellbinders inspiration next Monday :D :D :D
