Baby Boy - Tonic Studios - Ruth Hamilton

 Good afternoon :) It has all dried up here today and is even feeling a bit more like summer. All the heavy rain over the last days seems to have made the grass grow more quickly so I'll have to get the lawnmower out once the ground is dry enough.
Anyhow, I had a couple of cards to make this morning for my own use and I just realised that I actually don't make many at all for that so I scratched my head for a while before I came up with something.This one is for a good friend who has just become a granny to a gorgeous little boy.

I used some of Tonic Studios' Indulgence Affections dies along with the Adorable Elephants and Baby Balloons dies. I've also used the Congrats Miniature Moments die at the bottom.

Candy Cane Frame Die Set - Edna

Hello and good morning.

I have the last of my Christmas Frame samples to share today using the beautiful Candy Cane Frame die set.


Tonic products used - 
Jasmine Sunset layering dies for the card base
'Tis the Season' Christmas die set
Candy Cane Christmas Frame die set
Ice White Nuvo glitter
Nuvo alcohol pens 377, 413
Woodland green, Red Berry and gloss white Crystal Drops


I added ice white glitter to the edges of the decorative background from 'Tis the Season using the large Nuvo pen. There is no need to glitter the whole piece and it's actually better to leave the centre free to be able to adhere the frame topper without having to worry about gluing it to glitter. 

A few Nuvo Crystal drops in the corners just finished off the card.

As with yesterday's card, when you have a circle, oval or any shape that is likely to tilt when the card is standing, just snip off a tiny piece from the back and leave the front intact. Your card will then stand perfectly. :)

Thank you for joining me today.

ooooh my giddy aunt..... - Jo Austin

I can remember that phrase from a long time ago..... and I haven't said it in quite a while!! However... it came to mind this morning when I looked at how long it was since I managed to get on the ol' blog and do a post... 
Life has been a bit busy - what with gardening, work, furbabies and other family things, time just seems to fly. But in a good way, the garden is looking like an abundance of leafy goodness, work is steady and coming together, the furbabies are contented, spoiled and all the rest of it, and family are as bonkers as ever.
Perfect!
So... today, I thought I would finish this post for you that I started a while ago, and share this project with you.
I created it using the envelope dies that came out a while ago now (listed at the end of the post) and I kept it quite simple with a stamped sentiment and a bit of a drop shadow. 

Firstly, you will need to use the larger central die from the set, and cut it from white and also from your darker shade of pink.
Layer these together, sightly offset to create a drop shadow effect. Trim around the edges to make them nice and even. Take a lighter shade of pink and attach the top lacey layer using foam pads for dimension. Trim the edges so they are nice and even. You can do this with scissors.
Cut out a slightly larger base of mirror card, leaving around a 2mm bor
der all the way around. Stick underneath your panel. 

Mount this onto your card blank using 3d foam pads. Nsxt you will need to stamp your sentiment, or whatever it is that you choose to include onto the front. You can also add some paper flowers or just a bow to keep it simple - it will look classy and beautiful just as it is.
I hope you like the quick and easy project today... these dies are just amazing and as you can see, are not just for envelopes.
Here are your dies you need... have a fantastic day everyone!!
