Tonic Studios Index Dies to create shaped card base ...

Another post sharing a card created using the Tonic Studios Index Dies, Family Sentiment dies and the Banner dies & stamp sets. I have used the 'Vines & Moments Index Card' set to create my shaped card base, utilising the decorative tab die.


Circular acetate card - using Tonic Studios Sentiment dies

The first project I am going to share is one where I have used the Craft perfect project acetate. If you haven't had the chance to use the acetate before, I can heartily recommend it as the well known phrase goes "it does what is says on the tin" - well packet in this instance 😏

Through the Letter Box from Bubblyfunk - Star adorned notebook ...

I was really chuffed to bits to be asked to join the Bubbly Funk team which means I get to play with the "Through the Letterbox" kits .... oh yes! Decembers kit, called 'seeing stars' is full of sparkle, metallic colours, glittery stars along with  a fabulous mixtures of embellishments, materials, trims and oodles more. Pop over to the shop to check out the December kit yourself ...

When I opened my box, I was first impressed with the wonderful paper bags that some of the contents are placed inside and also the beautiful metallic gold material. These two 'spoke to me' and that was the starting point for my project ...

Tonic Studios Sentiment dies - Happy Birthday Nephew ...

Strangely, I never really thought of personalisation on my cards other than occasionally using the recipients name, so when I was sent the Family Sentiment dies I was not sure where to begin. Suddenly I realised that I could still make the cards I wanted by now I could always add that little bit extra with using the Family Sentiments. It was one of the 'waking up moments' 😁...!

Below is one of my cards that I made for the launch, which also incorporates the Banner Dies ...

A little bit of Bubbly Funk ...

A little while back I was approached and asked if I would like to play with a Bubbly Funk "Through the letterbox" kit and curiosity got the better of me and I simply had to say "yes". Just like magic ... well posted through my letter box ... the new December kit sent for me to rummage through and see what inspired me.



As the kit does not go officially on sale until today (1st December), I can only share a sneak peak of my project but will be back next week with the full 'blow by blow account' ...

What's new on my blog this week ...

I'm tuned in to you - Tonic Studios NEW musix dies
