Old Meets New



Hello lovely crafty friends.

Today’s card is a mixture of old and new and this is just one of the many reasons I <3 using Tonic dies. They work together so well.

So …



… this is what I did.

I used the Tonic Studios - Dimensions - Window Box - Tangled Terrace set but rather than make a window box, I used the outside edge as a border die.

It’s such a pretty die and if you add a little drop of Tonic Studios Nuvo crystal drop collection - Gloss White, it looks like you’ve punched a hole along the scallops.

I really like how it looks : )

Look at that embossed detail on the border edges – that was just one pass and I didn’t even have to use the embossing mat.

So that’s the new and now for a walk down memory lane.

For the old I used Sew Pretty – Cherish The Moment Frame die set  - the largest outside edge – and I embossed it with the embossing folder from Tonic Studios - Idyllics Die & Emboss Set - Blossoms & Battens.

The sentiment is Tonic Studios Miniature Moments Die Thinking of You which I drop-shadowed using  Tonic Craft Perfect cardstock in white and Kraft

So that’s my card and I hope you like the mixture of old and new.

Thank you for stopping by today and crafty hugs to all xx

The Same But Different….


Hello my lovelies.

I’ve got 2 cards to share today, both made using the Tonic Pretty Piazza Window Box Die Set.

Both use the same smaller inside edge which I cut at the top and the bottom of a 6x6 card blank.

But for the centre bit - the blue bit - I used the larger outside edge for one and the smaller one for the other. I cut two of each and chopped them up and joined them together – the white strips hides the join!!

There’s a subtle difference between the cards.  I can't chose my fave as I like them both lol, and it just goes to show how VERSO-tile these dies really are : )

I also added one or two White Gloss  Nuvo Crystal Drops – so pretty.

I made these whilst I was demoing so I left the sentiments off, but you could scoot that bow along and add a sentiment on the white strip.

Happy crafting and hugs to all  xx
