Sparkly Shaker Cards - Tonic Studios November 2018

Sunday, November 25, 2018

Hello crafty friends!  Happy Thanksgiving weekend, for those in the U.S.!
Today, I am going to share a couple cards I created for Tonic Studios using loads of their products and one very anticipated just released one!

I wanted to create two cards that was similar in the overall design but with two very different color schemes.  I planned to center each card around the Circle Die & Shaker Set from Tonic that is such a great idea and easy way to create shaker cards.

Tonic Studios provided me with products but the ideas and opinions are totally my own.

I used the Nuvo Hybrid Inks and the Nuvo stencil brushes to blend a background from pale turquoise to lavender on my base piece of cardstock.  I used a stencil from The Crafter's Workshop and the Fine Detail Embossing Powder to add the snowflakes onto my blended background.  I used several types of the 'Let It Snow' confetti inside the shaker. 

I finished up the card by adding a heat embossed sentiment in silver and some of the Nuvo Crystal Drops.

The next card had the same basic setup.  I created a patterned background to accent the circle shaker as an ornament.  I used the just released Expanding Mousse from Nuvo in Bramley Green over a holly leaf stencil from The Crafter's Workshop.  It is a really innovative product that has lots of uses.  Check out the video for the details about it!


I die cut a sentiment from this Mirror Card in red from Tonic and mounted it onto the vellum border piece of the same "Merry Christmas" sentiment die.

Using the circle die from the shaker set, I used it to be the background of my ornament.  I again used several of the Nuvo confetti in the 'Jingle Bells' set.  I added a piece of twine to my ornament and some Nuvo Crystal Drops in Gold where the holly berries would be.  Lastly, I mounted the entire piece onto Pistachio Green cardstock and then onto my card base.

I really love how festive this second card turned out!  These Die &  Shaker sets come in other shapes too...think I may need to get my hands on some of those!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I appreciate all the support and hope you check out the video as well.  Have an amazing week!

SNUGGLE (&video**) - TONIC Studios USA - November 2018

Wednesday, November 7, 2018

Hello everyone!!  I am excited to share a traditional scrapbook layout for my second project for Tonic Studios!  I played with so many of the lovely Nuvo Shimmer Powders.  All of the tools and supplies I used are linked at the end of this post.

You can click on the video below to watch my process creating the project or click HERE to go to my YouTube Channel.

I wanted to create my own 'patterned paper.'  I started by heat embossing a large stencil onto white cardstock using the Nuvo Fine Detail Embossing Powder in Glacier White.

I wanted the hearts to act as a resist to the Shimmer Powder technique that I imagined as a colorful contrast to my black & white photo.  I used the Green Parade, Atlantis Burst, Catherine Wheel, Solar Flare and Cherry Bomb colors of Shimmer Powder in multiple layers to achieve the pastel colors I wanted.

I added some patterned paper and tags behind my photo and some light turquoise alphas with a gold accent as well.  All of the embellishments and papers are at least a year old, but are among my favorites that couldn't be "purged" from my latest clean out!

I adhered my painted cardstock background onto another piece of navy patterned paper and tried to use several other accents in Blue...our puppy's name. :)

You can find the links to all the products I used below.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you check out the video as well!
Have an amazing day!
