Adding finishing touches to cards with Tonic Nuvo products

Hi, friends. If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know I’m a big fan of adding finishing sparkly touches to my cards. Sequins are my favorite embellishments out there since they’re available in many different colors and sizes. However, lately I see so many crafters using – and praising, Nuvo Drops. I purchased a couple of these a while ago and this time I finally got around to using them along with other Tonic products. ⭐️✨

Make sure to watch the video tutorial below. Check the supply list at the end of this blog post for links to all the products I used to make this card.

Patterned paper and punches were the first card making products I ever purchased along with stamps and ink. Because die cuts are more popular than punches lately, I haven’t used my punches in a couple of years. I own a lot of patterned paper but rarely use it. Since I’m still trying to get my creative mojo flowing again, I decided to challenge myself. 💡🤔 Jusin Timberlake has brought sexy back but now I’m bringing punches and patterned paper back. Hahah. 😂 Anyway, I used a Fiskars circle squeeze punch and some pretty patterned paper from Pinkfresh Studio. Don’t you just love the patterned paper I used? It has this collage and airy feel to it which I think is really great.

The Bitty Bears stamp set from My Favorite Things is one of my favorite stamp sets out there. There are so many options with these cute little fellas. I actually colored more bears than just this one. I think I’ll be using those on future cards. To add some dimension to the cupcake I used a Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen and a coat of Nuvo Crystal Glaze. I also used Tonic’s Gold Dust glitter card stock to add more interest and sparkle to the sentiment banner. The sparkle on this card stock is so vibrant and the glitter doesn’t rub off. To finish everything off I used Nuvo Drops to ‘pimp’ some clear sequins. This is a fun way to cover up the little hole and to bring your sequins to the next level.

That’s it for now. I hope you enjoyed this card making video. Let me know in the comments if there’s any type of product you haven’t used in a while. Go ahead and set yourself a little challenge. Big hugs! ❤️

For my project, I’m featuring festive products from Sunny Studio Stamps. I made an interactive slider card that I think you will love! Unfortunately, I don’t have a video tutorial this time. I made this card in bits and pieces in between studying and working on college assignments. So next time I’ll have a video for you! 🙂

I started out by masking off a snow hill with masking paper. Then I used Tumbled Glass ( HLM | AMZUS | ELH | SSS ), Broken China ( HLM | AMZUS | ELH | SSS )and Faded Jeans Distres Ink ( HLM | AMZUS | ELH | SSS ) to create a winter sky. To add some texture, I used Texture Paste  HLM | AMZUS | AMZUS | ELH ) and a stencil for a snow effect. I sprinkled on some glitter from Tonic ( HLM | AMZUS | SSS ). I’m in love with this glitter! It’s so sparkly and has a very fine texture. However, it’s SUPER messy and it gets everywhere. But it’s really worth it.

After creating my circle base, I stamped a cute penguin from the Snow Kissed stamp set from Sunny Studio Stamps ( HLM | SNN | SSS ). I colored this little guy with Copic markers and then used the coordinating die to cut him out. Next it was time to create my slider piece! I used the Slider dies from Lawn Fawn ( HLM | SSS | ELH | AMZUS ) for that. Finally, I used a sparkle pen from Spectrum Noir ( HLM | AMZUS | ELH | SSS ) and the Clear Glaze from Tonic ( TNCUK | AMZUS | SSS ). You know how much I like to finish a card with some shimmer and shine! 🙂

Happy Saturday, friends! Today I’m part of Heffy Doodle’s blog hop in honor of their brand new Winter release. This new release is simply adorable and I think you’ll love this products as much as I do.

In this video, I’m showcasing the new Elfish Antics set ( HFF | SSS ) to make an elf-tasctic – lol, sequin shaker card! 🙂

I had a lot of fun making this sequin shaker! I created my own patterned paper with the Peppermint Zone stencil from Winnie & Walter ( WNN ) and Festive Berries Distress Ink ( ELH | AMZUS | SSS ). These inks blend like butter! Because I haven’t used them in a while, I really noticed how amazing these inks are. 🙂

I colored the sweet elf from the Elfish Antics set from Heffy Doodle ( HFF | SSS ). I used Copic Markers to color the image. I mentioned all of the colors in my video. This time I didn’t link to each marker since that’s very time-consuming and since I don’t have a lot of time nowadays, I couldn’t do that. 🙂 I hope that’s okay!

I filled up my sequin shaker with a variety of sequins from The Ton. That’s my favorite part of making a shaker! Picking different colors and shapes of sequins. So much fun.

BLOG HOP

Like I mentioned before, this blog post is part of the Heffy Doodle Winter Release Blog Hop. In total there are 13 talented ladies showcasing their cards made with the new release. Here’s a list of hoppers. Enjoy the hop!
