Glitz and glamour

Good afternoon  and welcome to my blog today, I have a few cards to share with you from the launch of Tonic Studios Belle Boutique stamps and also the  sparkling Nuvo glitter Pens I had great fun playing with these products .hope you all have been enjoying the shows on Hochanda so many products and special offers to be had.

The stamp were coloured  with nuvo Alcohol pens for the skin tones and then I used the Nuvo glitter pens on my Tonic glass mat and picked up  the colour  with a water brush starting with a stronger tone at the top of the dress and dragging the colour down going over the image a few times until I was happy making sure where the pleats of the dress are darker she really does sparkle, the colours of the glitter pens are is the pink tone from the Northern light set of pens.
 The skin tones again are nuvo Alcohol pens and  the dress was coloured with the  spiced colour from the Ember glow glitter pens set.

 And for this card again the fresh tones were the nuvo Alcohol pens and  the dress was coloured using the purple glitter pens from the Northern lights pen set.
Again adding the glitter pens to the glass mat and picking the colour up with a water brush adding a stronger colour to the top of the dress and dragging the colour down she sure does shimmer up close.




Thank you for visiting my blog today
Please keep a look out as I have so much to share with you over the coming days, brand new launches something for everyone.

So Sweet

Good afternoon everyone, well not much longer to wait now until Tonic Studios first launch on Hochanda this evening at 8pm,fantastic Dimensions die sets. Today I am sharing the dimensions cupcake box sets.
The card is 7x7 and the layers are from Tonic's basic square and scalloped square layering die sets also the circle layering die sets and the cupcake and banner & heart are  from the cupcake dimensions die set


Loved making this, just using A3 card stock I made a box base big enough to place 4 cupcake boxes inside and the handle is the length of A3 and I die cut the detail of the handle with the dies from the cake slice box and then backed the handle with coral craft perfect card stock. The outer of the holder was decorated with panels from the cake slice box and matched with coral card.

And this is the cake slice box but so many other things you can do with this set the Design team have made amazing samples.





Thank you for joining me today

Until next time

Cupcake box / gift box

Good afternoon and welcome to my blog. Today I am sharing the first blog post for Tonic Studios Launch on Hochanda we are all so excited there is a real buzz about and we kick off on Hochanda tomorrow thur 30th at 8pm free view channel 85 also available on sky and online for those on Virgin .So first to be launched tomorrow is Cake boxes loved creating with these.
Cupcake box


The box is from the cupcake box but I thought it could be a lovely gift box with a candle inside.
To create this box you cut 2x of the cupcake boxes but you trim off the top flap on both glue together one on top of the other and then just cover both sides with extra card stock to the length of box you have made just to cover all the workings to leave a neat finish and then decorated with the decorative panels included in the set ,it would also look great with an acetate  sleeve.
Then decorate the top as you wish 





Please join me over the next week as I have so much to share with you all

With Love

Good afternoon everyone, welcome to my blog .Today I am sharing with you a new launch from Tonic Studios with the Rococo City Scenes and today's card features the Paris die Set. All available  on a 4 day deal from create and craft.
 
Dies used to create this are :-
Rococo  City Scenes- Paris
 Heart layering die set
Leaves from beautiful blooms
Ross made from a Tonic flower punch
Butterfly from  Flora frames die set
Large Layering Bow
Attraction upper case - Alphabet die set




The card was created making a large tag shaped blank using craft card and scoring on the back part of the card to create a hinge ,for decorative purposes I attached a large eyelet and threaded ribbon through  I distressed the background and used some decorative papers and also distressed and inked the edges and then attached some lace to the bottom of the topper. Then I placed the eiffel  tower  which I cut out 6 times and added silver nuvo mousse to make it look like a metal embellishment to the heart and highlighted the heart with a white gel pen and added nuvo sea shell drops . I then punched out 6 flowers from a Tonic punches and pinched each one to create roses glued together using a Tonic glue gun which makes putting them together so much easier.
I then used the tails from the large layering bows and used this for the Alphabet and to finished the card I added a couple of butterflies and a decorative bow.





Thank you for popping by today and hope to see you again very soon.
