Dies used :-

Sweet nothings -Delicate Embrace

The card is  8"x8"  and I just stayed with white and lilac for this card I added a matching  lilac card stock and then the white top layer I cut into the card stock with the   delicate Embrace  die and added that to the card on foam pads I took a strip of card stock in silver mirri and then a layer of white slightly smaller to leave a silver border then wrapped a pale co- ordinating ribbon around the strip and placed that on the card with foam pads I then cut the delicate embrace                   die out again in white card stock and with scissors cut one of the larger flowers that are in the design stuck that down onto the matching lilac card stock and cut around each petal  with scissors then added a bow to the centre of the strip and placed the flower to the centre of the bow with a hot glue gun and added a sparkle gem to the centre of the flower.
I then cut out the corners in silver mirri and lilac and glued slightly off set to create a shadow effect and I placed one of these on each corner to frame the  centre die cut
 To finish I added mum to the centre of the card  and not forgetting nuvo drops to the flowers, but this could be for any occasion you wish.

Budding vine pattern panel

Good afternoon crafters, as promised another card to share with you from Tonic's  Pattern panel dies available on create and craft
Dies used:
Tonic studios pattern panel - Budding Vine Die Set
Birthday Wishes Sentiment Die

Card size 10"x 7"

I thoroughly enjoyed making this card as I got to play with the gorgeous nuvo mousse in a spritzer bottle oh it leaves such a gorgeous finish on your card stock with the lovely shimmer from the pigment in the mousse , I sprayed my card stock and just left it to dry naturally and then placed a book on top just to flatten it out until I was ready for it ,as you can see I spritzed the backing card to the panel die and then everything was kept plain and simple in the cream card stock I edged the outer frame with the nuvo chisel glue pen and then added the nuvo gold guiding  flake  I then added the banner with the gorgeous birthday wishes sentiment and gave that the shadow effect and finished with gold and cream bows and not forgetting the light gold nuvo drops

Until next time

Patterned Panel - Vibrant Damask

Good afternoon crafters, I seem to be in a pastel mode at the moment mint and pale blue being my favourite  colours  maybe I'm thinking about summer and warmer days to come so today yep you guessed correctly pale blue it is from Tonic Studios Patterned Panel launch over on create and craft
Dies used:
Vibrant Damask - Patterned Panel Die Set
Beautiful  Blooms- Woodland Aster
Ornate Frame - Layering Die Set
Everyday Mini Decorative Stamp Set

The card was very simple to put together it's A5 in size which is A4 card stock scored and folded in half with a light blue layer at the back to show through the Damask die cut which I just cut twice I didn't actually pattern match this one there is a very fine line down the centre if you look carefully but as I was covering the centre with a larger topper you wouldn't notice the join in the card  but if it was to be a plain card I would have pattern matched the design which just takes a little time to line up if you havn't done it before but once you have your away,
I then cut the oval and detail Die in the centre from the ornate frame die set and stamped the sentiment with clear versa mark and sprinkled with silver nuvo embossing powder over the stamped sentiment and heat embossed from the back to leave a smoother finish but this is personal choice.
I then put the card together in the centre with foam pads to add a little depth and dimension
I  cut the Beautiful Blooms Woodland Aster I absolutely luv this bloom I cut the base in blue and then cut the detail in white and shaped the Aster with Tonics ball tool and sponge mat it's a fabulous flower forming kit and I don't know what I did before I bought it, it's an essential piece of kit if you are wanting to make flowers for your cards and projects and why not make life easier with the correct tools.
To finish the card I added the satin bow and glued the Aster to the centre of the bow with a hot glue gun and added nuvo drops.
