Black and Gold Cards with Tonic Craft Kit #28 :D

Who got Kit #21 of the Tonic Craft Kit? I'm pretty sure it was called Distress Edges... Because I think this months kit goes stunningly with the rose die from that kit, combine it with the intricate rose heart design for some really quick and easy cards for all sorts of occasions :D And to go underneath the Distressed Edges panel die, I spread some Black Diamond Glimmer Paste onto a piece of the Satin Black card and sprinkled on some of the Treasure chest glitter (all included in the kit) in the areas where the roses would be, just for some extra interest :D And I also made a couple of really quick cards utilising the gorgeous foiled kraft card from the Black and Gold 6x6 Pad included in the kit :D hope you enjoyed my last video using this months kit :D :D

Main products used :D

Spring Coloured Cards with Tonic Craft Kit #28 :D

The first of 3 videos using Kit #28 of the Tonic Craft Kit :D In this video I took the stamps and a few of the dies and combined them with a different colour scheme for a completely different look :D I love creating really simple, quick and easy backgrounds by brayering on some ink, then either over stamping in the same colours, or stenciling in the same colours, it gives a nice soft background to your card :D I also decided to use the rose heart design as a stencil and use Gold Luxe and Dragon Scales Nuvo Dream Drops for a tone on tone look :D Then I simply finish the cards with a few die-cuts, a sentiment and of course a scattering of the same Dream Drop colours :D Hope you liked it! I have 2 more filmed, and I'll try and get them up over the next couple of days :D :D

Simple Christmas Cards with Susan's Garden Club Dies from Tonic :D

If you haven't already seen Susan's floral creations, make sure to check out her Facebook page where she does live videos showing exactly how easy it is to use all her flower dies and products to create the most gorgeous realistic flowers!

However, you can also use her gorgeous dies to create simpler and quicker cards and even re-purpose the dies from her sets too :D For example in todays video, I used the Painted Fern die set to create a Christmas Tree, and used the stamen from the Christmas Rose and Columbine die sets to make snowflakes too :D I love how versatile her dies are and how easy it makes it to create those gorgeous realistic flowers, but I love that you can still use them for simple quick cards too :D I've got plenty more ideas for these gorgeous die sets, so keep your eyes peeled :D :D

Also, if you haven't got the pollen and Prills that Nuvo sell, you can use the Nuvo Sunflower Yellow Embossing Powder, and tiny gold microbeads for a similar pollen like effect :D All the products I used are in the list below as well as links to the rest of Susan's collection too :D :D

Main products used, followed by the rest of Susan's collection with Tonic :D
