What's a Tonic Tuesday Takeover?

Yep, it's Tonic Tuesday Takeover on my blog as I have noticed there are simply oodles of projects I have made for a new launch on Hochanda or alternatively, projects I simply was just inspired to do. So thought a as it was Tuesday a bit of alliteration was in order ... .well, why not.

I'm going to kick start the day with a project I made using the alphabet & frame stamp sets which Paula launched on Hochanda a wee while ago. This project uses the Cursive Capitals & Initial frame stamp sets ...

I began by making a doily using the Celtic Circle dies and then layering a tag on top. The tag was embossed with the Diamond Trellis folder and edges inked with Nuvo Poppy Red Hybrid ink. I die cut an oval and stamped the 'FOR'. Next I stamped the large frame from the Initial Frames set in Metro Grey and added the 'YOU' inside, (in Poppy Red). I cut out the frame and layered it on to my tag.

I began sticking my elements down on to my card base adding layers of ribbon pennents. Once happy, I stamped the 'JUST' - again in Poppy Red - and added some Red Berry crystal drops.

As a finishing touch, I added some stamped leaves - from Bunched Bouquet stamp set - and flowers made from the waste of the Curved Crosses framed screen die; finished off with Poppy Red crystal drops.

Still struggling here with the headache/eye ache. My Dr believes I have an infection and given me a full MOT ... literally! That means I can sit back and let my secretary take over typing my posts and if I'm honest, quite enjoying the whole process!

Thanks for popping over and don't forget to check out my other 'Tonic Tuesday Takeover' posts,
