Good morning everyone,welcome to my blog ,This morning I am sharing a card with you from Tonic Studios launch this evening at 6pm on Hochanda Wills Hand, a beautiful collection from William Ash a designer for Tonic and it's a collection of sentiments in will's gorgeous  handwriting I would luv to have such a gorgeous handwriting.

Materials used:-
Wills Hand love & Cherish sentiment dies
Victorian layering die sets
Rococo Dove from the faith collection
Handmade  craft perfect speciality papers
Craft perfect silver  & white pearlescent  card stock
Craft perfect silver mirri card stock
Silver/ grey satin ribbon

The card base is 8x8  with mat & layering then layers created using the beautiful Victorian layering die set,  Will's hand is fabulous as you have an outer edge die so it allows you to add a different colour backing plate to your die cut sentiment just makes the sentiment pop so for this card the backing was cut in the silver pearlescent  card and then the fine detail sentiment was cut in silver mirri card and white pearlescent  card and slightly off set to create depth & dimension and then to finish add a beautiful bow.

Mr Hedgehog craft kit 1

Good morning everyone, welcome to my blog, Today I am sharing a card from Tonic Studios first craft kit with the ever so adorable Hedgehog  I must say he looks very dapper with his top hat.
Materials used:-

Dies used to create this card are from Tonic Studios craft kit 1
     Nuvo craft perfect copper pearlescent 
 Nuvo craft perfect brown card stock
Nuvo Craft perfect green card stock
      Nuvo craft perfect stamping card stock
Nuvo mousse copper & gold
Nuvo brown ink pad
Nuvo Aqua Flow Pens & water brush
7x7 cream card base
Length of chocolate gingham ribbon

The base card is 7"x 7" with a layer of nuvo copper pearlescent  card stock ,the outside edge of the die made the centre apature as the die has the verso edge. Then you will need to cut the detail and outer die again in the brown card stock this is then glued to the card inside the apature making sure the  copper layer is mounted on 3D foam pads .
Now cut the die again in green card stock and snip the leaves out  with scissors  these will be glued flat on top of the brown layer add a little Nuvo mousse in gold  & copper just to hilight them.
The Hedgehog was stamped with a Nuvo brown ink pad and coloured with the Nuvo Aqua Flow Pens and a water brush and then cut out freehand and then mount onto the card then add his top hat which makes him look rather dapper indeed and finally cut a leaf out and add the sentiment from the stamp in the same Nuvo brown ink pad and then  mount it to the Ribbon attached with hot glue .

Thank you for joining me today 

Until next time
