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,th…

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 …
