Double Detail Dies and Stencils from Tonic Studios

Hello Crafters

I just want to share a card I made using the newly released Double Detail Dies and Stencils from Tonic Studios.  As many of you know these were a Pick Of The Day on Create and Craft last week so a lot of you will be getting these delivered soon, if not already.

Along with the Aztec Alium Double Detail Die Set I used the sentiment from the If Friends Were Flowers Sentiment Frame Die Set and the Keepsake Royal Frame.  I simply cut the die twice into the pink backing card and inked through the stencil with Walnut Stain Distress Ink using a latex sponge.  I backed this with a piece of cream card for stability.  I added the frame on foam pads, shadowed the wording and die cut some extra flowers from the border die.  I finished the card off with a pretty bow and added lots of Bright Gold Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Happy Crafting

Tonic Studios Simply Screens Pick Of The Week

Morning All

I hope the weather is holding out for you all as it's beautiful here in sunny South Wales :).  Today I'd like to show you a few of the cards I made using the Simply Screens dies from Tonic Studios in preparation for the Pick of The Week shows on Create and Craft this week.  These dies are so versatile because they can be repeatedly cut over and over to give you perfect backgrounds along with single strip cuts.  Here's what I came up with.

Here I used the Clematis Vine set both as a background and as a strip and cut the flowers out of the second die.  I also used the Art Deco Ovals and the Retro Happy Birthday dies along with The Essentials card packs which is the most fabulous card for die cutting and with contrasting colours that go together like a dream.

A Wedding/Anniversary/Engagement card next using the same dies, the Clematis Vine set as doors on the front of a tent fold A5 card along with the Love sentiment from the Believe/Love Frames and the Silhouette dies.

Completely different this time, using the Honeycomb set which was cut into the black layer of my card mat with some of the black waste placed back in to make a kind of football pattern to match the beautiful topper.  It only needed some wording so one of the family sentiments worked really well in this case.

I hope you'll join Jodie for the launch show at 11am instead of midday as originally scheduled and throughout the coming week xx
