Morning everyone....

We have Tattered Lace and Tonic coming together on today's card

I love this shade of blue and it's from the 6"x 6" paper pad I showed you yesterday as part of Tonic's Craft Kit 13

The die set on the card front is by Tattered Lace (details shown below)

I removed part of the card front to create an 'off-set' fold

The two border dies are part of the TL set and the centre die is, again, from Tonic's Craft Kit 13

Also from the kit was the NUVO Mica Mist in 'Nebula Blue' which I used to lightly spray the envelope

The above die set is from a set of 4 by TL.  It actually belongs to a friend of mine and she's loaned me the full set to see what I can make with the dies

Now onto the card winner:

Morning all....

Another colour combo I really love is black and gold, I think it looks so decadent

This is a 5"x7" black card base and I used a gold paint pen to create the splatters

The 'leaping deer' was die cut 4 times on gold card, 3 die cuts were adhered together and the fourth had its head, part of its body and a little of its bum removed as I wanted to show the leaping deer with 4 legs as the die only gives it 2

The sentiment was stamped and embossed

I die cut 2 ovals in the same gold card and 2 smaller ovals in black card

The sentiment was also stamped and embossed using the same powder that is on the card front

As this week's stamp is only small I've also added the toppers to the give-away

Leave a comment by 6pm Saturday if you wish your name to be added to the draw and the winner will be announced on Sunday's blog post

  • leaping deer - Memory Box No 98390
  • both sentiments - unknown
  • light gold pearl embossing powder - WOW
  • oval dies - Creative Expressions
Until tomorrow....

Unboxing Tonic Craft Kit 13

Morning all....

For today's post I'm showing all the goodies in this month's Tonic Craft Kit.  In my opinion this is one of the best, if not the best kit on the UK market! 


Back tomorrow with Festive Friday 33!

Until then....

Morning all....

One of my favourite colour combos today, aqua and white

This is a 7" white card base with a matt of aqua card then the top panel of white card

I've used 2 dies from Tattered Lace to die cut the aqua card.  The largest die was die cut a further twice then every other strip was cut and adhered to the original panel

A stamped sentiment was applied using a 'black onyx' ink pad

The dies used are part of a 'Cut, Craft, Create Set 1 by Tattered Lace, I've used the 'pleated panel' and 'ornate baroque corner'

The packaging is without a code

I used the two spare smallest die cuts to add on the inside of the card 

All the names from today's post will be entered into the draw, it closes at 6pm Friday, and the winner will be announced on Saturday's blog

Until tomorrow....

Morning all....

Faux leather technique today.  The one showing below is on the video and you may remember the second one I made for the 'texture' challenge at MAWTT

The latest one is half the size of the original one and is so cute in the 'flesh'

Good morning all....

A very floral offering for you today!

I started with a 7" white card base and added a panel of deep purple card then lilac card and, finally, the pretty floral paper

A strip of purple card was cut to size and embossed then a smaller piece of the floral paper was cut and adhered to the purple card prior to adhering both onto the side of the  base card

 I then die cut one of the die sets in white card, from Heartfelt Creations, and adhered that onto the card

The flower was die cut and coloured after the die cutting as I wanted several shades of colour to it, then glued into the centre of the white card.  Presenting flowers this way gives a different dimension to the finished item

Two tag dies were used, the larger one die cut from the purple card.  It had a piece of double sided adhesive sheet on the card prior to cutting then the backing paper was removed and glitter jewels sprinkled over the card

A Memento ink pad was used to stamp the sentiment onto the lilac card then it was die cut using the smallest tag die from the set

I continued the colour theme inside the card with oval die cuts in purple and lilac and will add a verse at a later date

  • floral paper, from a 12"x12" paper pad 'Flowers Blooming' by Craft Sensations - The Range.  Check this out if you can as the pad only cost £4!
  • Arianna Lace Die Set - Heartfelt Creations HCD747
  • gerbera flower - Elizabeth Craft Designs
  • tag dies/Multi Tag Die Set - Tonic
  • glitter jewels - Creative Expressions
  • sweet plum Memento Ink Pad - Tsukineko 
  • oval dies - Creative Expressions

  Until tomorrow....

Morning bloggers....  

This is such an economical way to make your own clear pockets for storing dies, stamps etc

You can customise them to your own requirements, A4 is the largest size unless you have a bigger laminator that can take A3

All you need is a laminator and laminator sheets!

I've been making quite a few!

Good morning crafting friends I don't think you can go wrong with the odd butterfly or two on a card.  Although there are more than...
