Happy Monday, friends! 😄 There are only 198 days left until Christmas, lol. So that means now is the perfect time to get a head start on those Christmas and Holiday cards.

Tonic Studios released their 23rd Craft Kit: Merry & Bright and it’s a good one! So many options. I’m a big fan of the color scheme in this kit and that Glacier Paste intrigued me right away! Make sure to watch the video below to see how I made these sparkly, clean and simple Christmas cards.

First, I created my own glitter paper. I’m not a big fan of glittery messes so I wanted to keep everything nice and clean. The Double Sided Adhesive Sheets from Tonic Studios are nice and sticky! Simply pour the glitter over the adhesive sheets and use a Dual Ended Blender Brush to burnish that glitter and remove all of the excess.

I also used the Sea Sprite Glacier Paste to create beautiful glossy card stock! This was so easy and simply to do. I simply used a Blending Sponge to apply and smear the paste on a piece of white card stock. This stuff dries SUPER fast so no need to let it dry overnight.

The bottle of Silver Crystals Glitter Drop, is perfect to finish off these Christmas projects. I also used Crystal Glaze and a few clear sequins here and there to add more shine and dimension.

That’s it for now! Thank you so much for stopping by. Sending big hugs! ❤️

Good morning, friends! A while ago, I posted a picture on my Instagram account of Craft Kit 20 from Tonic Studios. Yesterday, I finally had the chance to play with these goodies! I decided to use the Exclusive Dragonfly Box Die Cut Set to create an elegant Easter Egg Treat Box. 😄

First, I die cut the shape to create the gift box twice out of the Green Leaves Specialty Card. I wanted to create some windows so you could see what’s inside the box. To do that, I used three of the gorgeous swirling pattern dies. I adhered acetate squares to the back of each panel for extra support.

Next, I stamped and die cut six ladybugs from the Exclusive Dragonfly Box Stamp Set. I stamped each ladybug on Craft Perfect Ultra Smooth Card in Nuvo Black Shadow Ink. 🐞

After coloring the ladybugs with Copic Sketch Markers, I added some sparkle with a Nuvo Glitter Gloss Shimmer Pen. Finally, I adhered a couple of the Champagne Shine Sequins with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. To finish this box off, I applied a tiny dot of White Blizzard Glitter Drops to some of the sequins. 😄

That’s it for now. I hope you enjoyed this blog post and video! 💛 Thanks for stopping by. Sending big hugs.

Hello, friends! I’m stoked to be back with a new card making video tutorial. Last week I had a week off work/school (Fall Holiday), but sadly enough I was sick for the entire week. 😔 I was suffering from a sinus infection. Thankfully, I’m finally feeling better and I’m back to card making, blogging and teaching at kindergarten.

In this video I’ll be showing you how to make an ombre sequin shaker and how to create a quick and easy watercolor background with Distress Oxide ink pads.

I started out with a piece of Canson Watercolor paper that I had already cut to 4 1/4 inch x 5 1/2 inch. Using the Trio of Trees stamp set from My Favorite Things, I heat embossed snowflakes all over the paper.

Next, I used Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide ink to create a blended background. I randomly applied the ink to the card stock and blended everything together. Then, I used a Ranger Mister to spray water all over the card stock. Finally, I applied some water droplets and picked those up with a tissue. I absolutely LOVE how it turned out! ❄️💙

After making sure my Distress Oxide background was dry, I used the Fa La La die for my shaker. I adhered a piece of acetate to the back of the card stock and created a frame for the shaker using Fun Foam and Tonic Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. Next, I filled up the shaker with a bunch of blue and clear sequins. To finish off the card, I embossed a simple sentiment banner. 

That’s it for now! Thank you so much for stopping by. I’ll see you soon. 💙😘
