Secret stuff

Good afternoon everyone, today I would like to share a creation I made using parts of three craft kits used together I know what your all thinking  I am a rebel heehee Tonic Studios Craft kits are just amazing not only do you receive a die set in a beautiful binder to keep them safe with a stamp set but you also receive a surprise and a collection of everything you need inc cards sock ,papers embossing powders ,ink pads glitters, tools you name it these kits are very good value and are so well putt together everything colour co- ordinated so if your not great at putting colours together its made easier.

I decided to create a beautiful set of draws on legs with a card attached

You will need kit 5 - flowers
Kit 7- topper
Kit 8 for the draws
Raspberry craft perfect
Ivory craft perfect
Blossom Pink craft perfect
Craft perfect fern green
Craft perfect Gold speciality card 
Cream 300gsm base card
Nuvo clear embossing ink pad
Nuvo gold embossing poder

The card bas is just under 6x6 square in cream 300gsm you will need to make 4 matchboxes with kit 8 and then place the boxes as i have done here were 1 draw opens per side and then decorate with all the decorative dies each draw front has a little gold handle and you just shape this with your fingers and place wet glue each end of the handle then add the ivory layer  you could write on this little tab if you were keeping buttons or paperclips inside ect.

As you can see a draw opens to each side once the match boxes are glued down with wet glue just to the base of each draw you need to place another piece of card on top the same size as your base then you can place an easel card on top.
The easel card has a raspberry layer and then cut into the centre using the stunning square die from kit 7 and place the die back in so the cream just pops through .
Now you need to cut the same die again base in raspberry and detail in ivory craft perfect this is then placed on the card with 3D foam pads.
The centre of the card was cut in gold speciality and then a top layer in ivory this was also added to the card with 3D foam pads, the  sentiment was inked up with Nuvo Clear hybrid ink pad and stapmed on to smooth cream card stock then heat embossed using Nuvo gold embossing powder then added to the card.

The card was then decorated with the flowers from kit 5 in blossom pink each flower has 3 layers and shaped with Tonics flower forming kit and glued to the card with hot glue.
The stopper of the card was using the round  detail die from kit 7 and foam pads were added to form the stopper

I hope you enjoyed my creation any questions just leave me a comment and i will get back to you as soon as i can.
The set of draws has legs you need 4 strips of paper each the full length of A4 card and 1/2" wide these are curled up with a quilling tool or tweezers if you don't have a quilling tool and then hot glue was placed to each one placing them to each corner.

Have a great weekend everyone xx

The first album I would like to share with you  is Christmas themed I know Christmas, but thinking ahead what a fantastic way of keeping those treasured memories past or present for gifts or yourself to pass down through the family.

All the album is decorated with craft perfect card stock apart from the red base card which is fill a box and is 3oogs…
