Poppy Hideaway

Good morning, Today we see the launch of Tonic's Double detail Die & Stencil Sets and 9 new coloured mousses ,join jodie at 12 noon today on create and craft for fabulous demonstrations and plenty of inspiration from the teams samples
The mousse is a dream to use with the stencils or using as a guiding wax ect it's texture is very soft and creamy and so very easy to apply I am in love with all the colours there are some lovely summer colours in this new collection , the dies are so pretty an absolutely adorable collection

Items used :-
Poppy Hideaway Die
Poppy Hideaway Stencil
Twisted Veranda Layering Set
Entwined Trellis -Delicate Daisies
Entwined Trellis - Bellus buttercup
Arboreal Dream Die set
Nuvo embellishment mousse- Aquamarine

The card is 8x8 with matting and layering I thought the hot pink and Aquamarine worked so well together and any excuse for adding gingham is good with me .
The poppy Hideaway die cut is very easy to stencil, once cut out i then align the stencil to the die cut and then I mask around the edges of the stencil and then apply the mousse with a pallet knife dragging the mousse from the top down to the bottom adding any extra mousse that's left over back to the pot .

I then remove the tape and lift the stencil carefully away from the die cut I found this method worked extremely well for me but you can also apply a temporary spray to the back of your stencil and then place over your die cut so there are no gaps between your die cut and stencil so when you apply the mousse it doesn't seep.
I finished the card by adding a few flowers and flourishes and nuvo drops

Thanks for taking a peek today be sure to visit again as I have many more cards to share with you from this collection

Admiral Arches

Good morning,  have been very busy here prepping for future shows & I forgot to post my last card to share with you, from Tonics 4 day deal sew pretty 2, absolutely beautiful sets of dies and so versatile easily changed by snipping bits out here and there, they look great just die cut but then a totally different look when faux stitched or hand stitched with embroidery thread or cotton, they look really nice with silk threads aswell.

Dies used:-
Admiral Arches
Scalloped square layering sets
Circle layering sets
Scalloped circle layering sets
Everyday stamps from the decorative mini stamp sets
Entwining trellis- Delicate Dasies

The card is 7"x7, I created the background for this card using the sew pretty Admiral Arches set I cut 8 of the corners out and glued them together slightly overlapping the edges together to create the square I then created a frame with the scalloped layering squares I added glue to the edge of the frame with a nuvo chisel pen and then applied the silver guiding flakes.
The centre of the card is created using the circle layering sets and I then heat embossed the sentiment with silver nuvo embossing powders heat embossed from the reverse of the stamped sentiment just to get a smoother finish and then mounted it with foam pads, the finishing touch was adding a grey silk bow & adding the delicate daisies to the centre of the bow and adding nuvo drops to the centre.

See you soon
