"Faith, Trust and Fairy Dust" tag card ...

Here is another of the samples I made for the recent Tonic Studios Fairy Reflections release and this time I decided to make a tag shaped card. To create the card I folded a piece of A4 in half and then cut this in half at the fold. This created a tent shaped card which I then trimmed to look as if it was a tag.

Using different papers, I aged them with my Nuvo Creative Pens (449 and 461) and cut and dry foam. I also randomly added Nuvo gold embossing powder to enhance this look.

Next I layered up my larger die cut shape,(frame from Love/Believe topper set) ageing it as described above. I stamped a postcard on to the DP and again aged it. Using Grace, I stamped her on to the DP and embossed the image with Nuvo white embossing powder. She has been cut using the outside edge die. I then placed her on top of my first layers.

Next I added my embellies using Piano Melody and Petit Musical Notes dies (ageing as before) and the sentiment, (placed on top of inner die from Spring set). Some Nuvo crystal drops and a flower, were my final touches. At the top of the card, I punched two holes and tied a bow.

A great "messy play" card to make which actually came together really quickly.

Have a great weekend everyone and thanks for popping over and don't forget to enter my "half century blog candy draw" HERE,

Underwater Artist Art Journal Page using Marlene's World Collection from Studio Light

I treated myself a long while ago to the fabulous Marlene's World Collection from Studio Light and sadly have to report that it has stayed hidden in a folder since then. Finally, I had some precious "me time" and decided to get the collection and have a play around with a few of the stamps plus collage/paper piece s. It was the sentiment that really "sang to me" 😍 but not like a Sea Siren does ...! A full "how I did it" is below & also a full list of supplies at the bottom of the post.

Legacy Keep Dies from Tonic Studios to make an album page.

Hi everyone. Have you been enjoying Tonic Studios 17th birthday celebrations on Hochanda? Oh my goodness, so many wonderful die collections and Nuvo products to choose from, each as much fun to 'play' with ... oh yes they are, trust me 😏😍😉 This weekend, Jodie is launching a set of dies called 'Legacy Keeper' which are part of the Memory Book range. For my first project share using these dies, I have used them to create an album page for this album - made using Memory Book 2  ...   The front is decorated with the new Treasured Tome A4 embossing folder creating an embossed acetate layer on top. Gotta go off topic here and say did you see Jodie & Janice trying to pronounce the embossing folders name? So very funny ...! Okay, back to the album ... I often create an acetate layer to act as a protective cover to the front of my albums especially if you have a photograph on the front.
