Something a Bit Different... - Claire Rhodes-Brandon

This is a Christmas wreath I made using the fabulous new dies from Tonic Studios. The Build a Wreath collection consists of a three pack of grey-board wreaths in different sizes, which can be decorated using the eleven Rococo dies also in the bundle. 

I went for a bit of a vintage theme for the largest of the wreaths. There’s a lot of die cutting involved but once you’ve done all of that the fun of decorating can begin! I think this is something kids would love to help out with too.

Simply Just For You - Victoria Dalziel

Good afternoon, A card I want to share with you from Tonic Studios Basic Layering Die Sets, I think as a crafter you definitely need your core basic shapes and then build on your collection from there I have to say I would be lost without the basic shapes as that's usually where I start from when planning a card

Dies Used -: 
Essentials - mixed Edge Rectangles Layering Die Sets
A4 Embossing folder Martha 
12x12 forever moment papers & sentiment topper pack
Tonic - scalloped Arc Border Punch
Tonic - Flower Head Punch

The card is 8"x 8" with the front of the card scored in half again back on its self I created a frame with the basic Rectangle layering set and then placed the sentiment Topper from the Forever moments paper pack in side so it looked like a little picture frame and then a added a little bow for decoration and I also made a hand made rose in cream card stock using the tonic flower head punch, the inside of the card I added an embossed background then punched out a border with the scalloped Arc and then put a length of ribbon down one edge I finished the card using the light gold pearl nuvo drops down the border.

Thank you for taking the time to visit today
Hope to see you again soon

Marquee Box - Edna

My goodness it's a busy Tonic day that's for sure.
I hope you managed to catch the 10.00 am show with Emily this morning. She was demoing the lovely Marquee Box die set.
This is one I made for the show using the template as is with no alterations.
I loved the zingy colours and as luck would have it I had the exact ribbon to match. How often does that happen? LOL

Royal Fern foliage
Heated Hues Essentials card stock

Thank you for calling in!

I'll be back later with another card to share - hope you can contain your excitement. LOL

Season's Greetings - Edna

Hello and welcome to the blog today.
I am sharing one of the fabulous 'Oh Christmas Tree' Simply Screen dies today.

Tonic Products used - 
Oh Christmas Tree Simply Screen die
Rococo Stag
Mini Moments Christmas greeting
Metallic card - gold mirror
Bowscale layering die (card base)
Sew Pretty Circle frame
Bright gold Crystal drops

I just love the tiny leaping deer that is part of the 'waste' from the strip die so I've used him to add as an embellishment on the sentiment strip.
The card base measures 7 1/2 x 8 1/2" to give you an idea of scale. 
I love the large layering dies, in this case the Bowscale set for making my base cards.
Cut two pieces of card stock exactly the same. Score one at 1" from the top and adhere the card front.
It makes a beautiful base to work on. :) 

Thank you for popping in today.
Don't forget the shows on Create & Craft with Paula and Emily today. There is lots more inspiration from the team and great demos too.
