Today's card is from Tonic Studios Corner die sets launched yesterday on Hochanda as a weekday wonder a few have sold out as single sets but the complete collection there are 5 sets and each set has two dies a detail die & the backing die,I absolutely  luv the verso plus edge dies gives you more versatility.

English picnic layering die set
Forever my fried - Flip Flop die sets
Black craft perfect
Bright White craft perfect
300gsm white base card stock
Red berry crystal drops
Gingham ribbon
Button embellishment
The card base is made using the English Picnic die set cutting 2 the same size and putting a score line across the back of the card this gives you a glue tab to adhere  the front of the card and then using the next size down in the dies for matting and layering , the back panel is cut from the top layer of the card you will be keeping the  top layer then you need to cut the detail out of the backing piece you have  , then adding the die cut detail back ito the card it gives you a slight border.then with red Berry Crystal drops add to the centre of the flowers. Add the sentiment from the Flip Flop die sets cut in silver Mirror card and red craft perfect and glue slightly off set to create a shadow effect and then place a black & white Gingham bow to the top right corner and with a hot glue gun add a small red button and then  drape the ribbon down and across the card.

Stamp the greeting with the  Nuvo red ink pad by applying the sentiment to the stamping platform and gently tapping the stamp with the ink pad once  stamped if you would prefer a stronger colour you can then apply more ink to the sentiment and stamp over the first image stamp this is the added bonus of using the stamping platform. Then glue the sentiment to the base layer with wet glue.
Now stamp festive friends and colour with Nuvo Alcohol pens  once these are coloured fix to the blue backing,add the mat & layers to the card attach a length of red ribbon before sticking to the card then add 3D foam pads to each frame and place on the card and then add the red Berry drops to the frames ,attach the bow with hot glue once the frames are dry I would always leave Nuvo drops to dry over night before posting just to be sure they are completely set.

Classic Roses

Good afternoon everyone ,well Tonic Studios have a brand new launch today Dots and drops frames on Hochanda, so I better show you what I have been up to.
Materials Used :-
Dots & Drops- Classic Rose
Xmas seasons greetings Stamp set -Festive friends
Ornate Frame-Layering die set
Bright White craft perfect card stock
Cherry Red craft perfect card stock
Bottle green nuvo pearl drops
Nuvo Black shadow ink pad
Stamping platform or block
Matching satin bows


The card base is a large card 10"x7" created from A3 card stock 300gsm
Then the mat layer is cut from cherry red craft perfect .
You need to cut the base of the Ornate frame out in white craft perfect and also the next layer down in the same card stock but you will be placing the classic rose detail Die into the centre  of this die  as  you want to cut into the card you  don't want to cut out of the card stock on this layer.
 Now in the next layer cut the plain panel in Cherry red and then cut the same die again in bright white and then cut the rose detail out of the white layer glue these together with wet glue leave to dry and once dry cut though both layers with the smaller middle die this will now give you a frame ,place 3D foam pads to the back of the frame and place onto the larger oval panel  this also needs 3D foam underneath to add depth and dimension to the card.
Now the small die cut for the centre will need to be stamped with the seasons greetings stamp from the festive friends set ,ink the stamp taking the ink pad to your stamp with gentle tapping cover the stamp with Nuvo Black Shadow ink and then press firmly on the card to get an even stamped image bearing in mind if you are lucky enough to have the Tim Holtz stamping platform if your first attempt isn't stamped out evenly you can go back ink the stamp once again and stamp over the first impression. If you haven't got the TH stamping platform I would highly recommend it  makes life so much easier and they are available all over the trade now at very good affordable prices.
 Once all the layers are place on the card it's now time to add the nuvo drops  bottle green has a beautiful pearl shimmer to it if your not confident in placing the drops next to each other do every other drop and when they are dry then fill in where you have missed, it stops them merging together if you are not confident. To finish the card add a saving & organza  ribbon and a little rose gem .

Bunnies,babies,bunting & balloons

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog ,today I am sharing a couple of cards created for Tonic Studios  using the Silhouette  die sets - Babies,Bunting,,Balloons & Bunnies such a  cute die .
Materials used :-
Silhouette  Babies,Bunting,Balloons & Bunnies  die set
Base card stock 280gsm
Basic scalloped and straight edge oval layering dies
Rococo Petite- layered cloud die set
 Fuschia Pink craft perfect
Blossom pink craft perfect
Oyster grey craft perfect
Bright White craft perfect
New Baby sentiment
 Cloud dies from 
Organza pink ribbon

This card is created from a card stock 280gsm and it's just a matter of score lines really then a little mat and layering you will need a score board or a scoring tool on a paper trimmer and you will be scoring on the short side mark with a pencil at 1 1/2" score at 3" ,4 1/2",7 1/2", 9" and mark at 10 1/2" then down each side mark at 3 1/2" then with a ruler mark from the 3 1/2" at the side to the 1 1/2" mark at the top do this on each corner and trim the corners off  you will also need to put some extra score lines in as can be seen bin the photos  below to show.
This is what it should look like with all the score lines in place you just need to trim the corners off.
Score lines go across at an angle from top 1 1/2" down to 4 1/2" and again back the other way and repeat at the oposite end.

You can have the card fold this way or the opposite it's up to you

This just gives you another style of card


The card then has some mats added in pinks glued flat to so the card will fold up I wouldn't use anything more than a 280gm card as it will have a tenancy of cracking along the fold lines, once all the score lines are in place you need to go over all the folds with a bone folder to achieve a lovely clean crisp finish.
The baby outfit is cut in Blossom pink craft perfect for the base layer and then the detail Die is cut with bright white craft perfect card then cut the detail out in the fuchsia pink craft perfect card stock and snip the detail  out and layer on top of the white detail layer you will then need to die cut the bunny with Grey card stock snip out and back the bunny on a darker  grey card and cut free hand with scissors this is then added to the white detail layer.
Then add the New Baby sentiment to one side and the clouds and balloons to the opposite  side and finish the card with a pink Organza bow and pink and white  craft perfect striped bakers twine and add the little dummy I am sure that this card would stand out on the mantlepiece  and be a true keepsake.

Materials to create this card :-
Silhouette  die set Babies,Bunting,Balloons & Bunnies
Bowscale layering die sets
Basic oval layering die sets
Sew pretty two die set- Cherish the moment
Will's hand Cherish sentiment
Craft perfect Bright White card stock
Craft perfect kraft card
Craft perfect chocolate brown 
Polka dot papers
Blue fine liner pen



The card was created cutting two the same size from the Bowscale die set and then scoring about 1" deep across this will be the back of the card this is forming a hinge for the front panel to adhere  to then it's just a matter of cutting different sizes in different co-ordinating colours.
The sew pretty die is cut in white craft perfect and with a blue fine liner pen add the faux  stitching around the edge , next cut the next layer in Kraft card these are added to the card with 3D foam pads now cut the babygrow  using the outer edge die in white craft perfect and then with the detail Die you need to draw around the die with a pencil on polka dot paper and cut out free hand then by eye you need to chop off the bottom part of the babygrow to look like a T shirt but make sure the white base is slightly longer than the polka dot layer so you have a fine border and also trim off the baby's feet each side then cut a small scallop oval for the centre of the T,shirt

Now you will need to die cut the detail part of the die and snip with the scissors to cut out the bunny and the balloons  the bunny is then glued to a piece of chocolate brown card stock and trimmed with scissors you need to cut two Balloons with Kraft card and back on white card and again trim with scissors this is then glued to the oval then with the balloons you trimmed off earlier they need to be backed with blue card stock and trimmed free hand and placed at the top of the card and then adding the cherish sentiment to the bottom of the card in cornflower blue Craft perfect and bright white craft perfect.
