Special Anniversary with Tonic Craft Kit #17 :D - Crafti Potential


The last of my videos using the January 2019 edition of the Tonic Craft Kit, Kit #17 :D For today's card I decided to use the two gorgeous mousses from the kit to blend my background, then I created my own foam stamp and used the Hybrid inks from the kit to stamp on top (the Hybrid nature of the inks makes them perfect for stamping on top of the mousse, as they dry permanent) :D For the sentiment, I stacked up multiple die-cuts to give a chipboard look, then I added sparkle pen a Nuvo Crystal Glaze over the top! :D Hope you liked this quick card, and I hope you had a wonderful Christmas too!! :D :D

Celebrate It's Birthday Time with Tonic Timepiece Media Dies :D - Crafti Potential



A fun kind of Art Journal style birthday card, this one is much bigger than my usual favourite size, it was for my mums birthday earlier this year and she said she wanted a really big card :D I was really in the mood to create an Art Journal style background when I made this card, but didn't want to actually create and art journal layout, so I thought why not do a super duper extravagant 8x8 card for mums birthday :D Hope you liked it! It'd work equally well as a canvas piece too for some home decor :D :D

Main products used :D
Watercolour Card

Feather Strip Die Set Samples - Edna Taylor


Hello and welcome to the blog today.
I have some samples from the launch of the Tonic Studios Strip Dies show to share today.
Here are three cards using the beautiful Feather set. Such a unique design and so versatile for many occasions.

I've used Craft Perfect in Jet Black and Bright White with a shadow of Silver Silk Speciality card stockThe Hello Strip sentiment dieBlack/white Nuvo TwineNuvo Vintage drops Earl Grey
For my second card I've used the beautiful Kaleidoscope Octagonal dies from the Sewing Forever die setOctagonal layering dies Floral FavourMica Mists - Fresh Pear, Nubula BlueNuvo Black Shadow hybrid inkCraft Perfect - Limelight Pearlescent, Teal Blue, Ocean Blue
The stamp is from a Marianne Design set 'Dreams' from my stash.


For my third card I used the main feather die to cut into the card stock across the panel three times.I've used Ultra Smooth white card stock spritzed with water and sprinkled with Nuvo Shimmer powders in Blue Blitz and Cherry Bomb.
The card base and layer was cut from the Bowscale layering die set and I've used the strip edger die for the front white panel. 
The stamp is from my stash.
