The card shape is from the Large layering die sets Ribbon & Bow and I have cut 2 the same size and scored roughly 1" in depth across the card to form a hinge for the card blank i then trimmed off the bottom edge so it sits nicely  the panels I added some silver sparkle dust to the flowers using a fine tip glue pen just for a little sparkle I made a sparkle gem to add to the centre of my bow .

Rose Garden

Good afternoon everyone, well it's cold and gloomy here in Cheshire today definitely coat weather flip flops packed away .
                                                   Today  we see a brand new launch from Tonic Studios with the invite die sets I have to say I really like these sets so very useful and versatile as there are sentiment stamps included in these sets with wedding invitation ,party invitations ,evening invitations so if you like to do invites order of service  this would be such a useful set to have in your stash each die set has a verso edge and each set has a different die cut edge that mix and match with one another.
Dies used:-
Harrop layering die set
Tonic flower punch
Frond Finesse
Framed screens - zig zag and floral screens die set
Pattern panel - Sunflower array die set
Wedding invite insert die set
Rose garden invite die set

The card was made using the Harrop large layering dies I cut 2x the same size and added a score line roughly 1 inch deep right across the card and then used red liner tape to stick the two pieces together to create the base shape ,I then die cut the outer frames  from the framed screens zig zag and Floral screens sets then  to frame the Rose garden invite set which I cut out 3 times i cut the outer edge using the pattern panel- sunflower array outer edge die.
 I cut the beautiful wedding insert into cream card stock and then cut the outer shape again and backed on gold pearl card stock I then drew around the outer edge with a pencil and cut out free had with scissors a gold mirri edge, I then added the Frond Finesse and cream flowers from a tonic punch in my stash and finished with gold nuvo glitter drops, and not forgetting a matching bow as many of you know me now I can not resist  a bow I'm addicted.

Thank you for visiting me today

Until next time

Traditional Wreath

Good morning everyone, what are we all up to today? Well for me it's prepping all day in my little craft room bliss hahaha ,some absolutely gorgeous things coming from Tonic but lips are sealed until launch, however I was going through my blog and realised I didn't share the large build a wreath I made for Tonic a little while ago . I know it wasent show on create and craft as it went missing so couldn't be shown so here goes

Build a wreath die collection

This was made using the largest wreath in the pack and firstly I painted it with green Acrylic paint both sides 2x coats then I cut the fern  out i couldn't honestly say how many but alot then I glued these 2x at a time until the wreath was covered I did glue everything with my Tonic hot glue gun.
I then started to add different die cuts trying to shape the baubles ect to get a bit of depth and dimension once the wreath was finished I added a little gold nuvo mousse on bits of leaves just to highlight certain areas,the berries were coloured with the nuvo pens and then I added some clear glaze to make them shine & I also added white gloss nuvo drops to the mistletoe  sprig just a lovely finishing touch.   

Until next time

A Wee bit of Tartan

Good afternoon, well time to share a sneek peek  of the gorgeous Kings cross Case from Tonic Studios, I think this case is so cute it's so versatile that you can decorate it  feminine  or masculine or for children with little treats  inside, they are a fabulous gift to give.
Materials used :-
Kings cross Case Die Set
Gold mirri card
Bottle green card stock 240gsm
Tartan card stock 240gsm

The case  is so simple to put together once you have made your first one you will be away .
I have glued all the cases & bags together using Tonic's PVA- funky glue I don't use any other wet glue this glue gives you a little  time to stick  but once it's bonded it's glued forever and you want a strong bond as who ever you gift this to they will be showing it off and playing with it so you don't want it falling apart.
In the die set you get everything you need the buckle, handle, tag, label, and the lovely corners to finish them off with style.

Thank you for taking the time to visit today, I have lot's to share with you over the weekend so keep an eye open for my blog posts.
