Good morning everyone, what a beautiful day it is here in Cheshire today. Now I have two cards to share with you today from Tonic Studios Kit 10 what a fabulous kit and the colours are gorgeous with oranges ,yellows and the stunning green / blues reminds me of the beach the contents of the kit as always is fabulous and the free gift amazing and so very useful I have to say.

Tonic craft kit 10
Craft perfect jet black
Craft perfect Bright White
Craft perfect Kraft card
The first card was created with a 5"x7" tent fold card with a centre section removed so it looks like a chalk board this was marked with a pencil 1 1/2" in from each side and the same upwards and using a ruler and craft knife remove this section.
The frame die is die cut in Kraft card and white, making the frame you will need to die cut the centre die.then the frame was placed on a mat & layer cut on a paper trimmer allowing a border then placed onto the card with 3D foam pads.
Then you will need to die cut the never ending banner in the oranges and yellow card stock & making little banners stick together again with 3d foam pads and place onto the top of the card die cutting the letters son and adding those to the banners and to finish the card congrats was added to the centre black layer of the frame and the Nuvo drops were added.
Card no two is another 5"x7" card the card has a white layer added and this layer has been randomly stamped with Nuvo Hybrid ink - Languna Bay using the stamps that come in kit 10 this is then added to the card, now you will need to make two frames one is made using the orange and yellow craft perfect from the kit the centre of this frame has also been stamped with the Hybrid inks in -Carrot Stick & Rubber Duck.
Using the Birthday strip stamp in the kit.
The second frame was created using the fabulous Shimmer powder included in the kit- Atlantis Burst and also using the Nuvo spray bottle, you need to die cut the frame and lightly spray with a small amount of water then with gentle tapping add the shimmer powder you will see it slightly move on your card stock then add more water with the spray bottle you will now see the colours explode now heat with a heat gun if you want more colour then repeat until your happy with the result.
Now place the yellow frame on top using wet glue and add this to the card with 3mm foam pads to add depth & dimension to your card.
Now die cut a length of banner in orange and white craft perfect shape with your fingers this is placed across the centre with one end slightly tucked under the edge of the frame.
The letters were cut from the glitter Accents to do this you will need a craft sheet ,add a good amount to the craft sheet and spread with a palette knife leave this to dry over night when dry peel away carefully and you can now place your die on top and die cut the letters you wish be careful removing the letters from the die use a pokey tool and carefully tease the letters out.
Add a little glue to the back of each letter and add to the banner.
I hope you have lots of fun with kit 10 the products included are fabulous and like me you will just want to play and play with these products.
