Hi, friends! I hope you all had a wonderful, sunny Easter weekend. 🐣🐰 The past couple of days I’ve made a lot of cards with Tonic’s 21st Craft Kit – Distress Details. Guess what? I didn’t use a single stamp to create all five of these!

Make sure to watch the video below for lots of tips and tricks. If you’re new to my channel, subscribe and click the bell to receive notifications whenever I upload a new video.

For the first two cards, I used the Distressed Stencil that comes with the kit along with the Boatyard Blue Expanding Mousse and Soft Truffle Embellishment Mousse. Applying these mousses with a Nuvo Blending Sponge is so easy and fun to do!

Next, I decided to get create with some of the dies from the Distressed Edge & Tag Die Cut Set. I made my own stencil with masking paper and added a fun pop of color with the tiny flower dies. To finish off these little flowers, I applied Dirty Bronze Crystal Drops, Belgium Bluestone and Fiery Volcano Stone Drops.

Finally, I made an elegant gold card with the big rose die from the Distressed Edge & Tag Die Cut Set. I used one of the beautiful specialty papers that comes with the kit and combined it with White Blizzard Glitter Drops.

Hey crafty friends! This month I am the Designer in the Spotlight at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog. Yay! 😄

Are you ready for a new challenge? I sure am! This week’s challenge is Cute. I decided to create a card using the Simon Says Stamp Dog & Cat Dress Up Stamp Set from their brand new Fresh Bloom Collection. Since I don’t own the dies of this stamp set, I decided to get creative with some masking, ink blending AND stenciling! 💛

Make sure to watch the video below to see how I made this cute card.

First, I used Simon Says Stamp Masking Paper Sheets and a circle die from Lawn Fawn to create my mask. Then, I created an ombré effect with the Squeezed Lemonade and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Inks. I love how smooth and easy it is to create blended backgrounds with these ink pads.

I grabbed the Falling Stars Stencil from Simon Says Stamp and created green stars with Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Ink. Afterwards, I added sparkle using Tonic Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer Paste.

Since I didn’t have the dies of the Simon Says Stamp Dog & Cat Dress Up Stamp Set, I had to get creative with masking paper. I stamped the bow tie and party hat first, covered it up with masking paper and then stamped the dog. When masking, always stamp the images you want on the front first.

After coloring the images, I finished up the card with a bit of sparkle here and there. Like always, I used a Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Pen and a coat of Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze. Finally, I adhered Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins using the Tonic Nuvo Smooth Precision Glue Pen. 😄

Hello, friends! Today I’m sharing a card made with Tonic’s 18th Craft Kit called ‘Dream in Color’. With shades of lilac, fuchsia, turquoise and apricot, this kit is simply gorgeous. 😍 For more information about this Tonic Craft Kit, click HERE.

When I first opened this kit, I instantly fell in love with the beautiful papers and intricate die cuts. I decided to use one of the Secret Garden dies and Neenah Solar White card stock to create my own stencil.

DIY Stencil + Ombré Glitter (Tonic Craft Kit Issue 18 - Dream in Color)

The color scheme of this Craft Kit inspired me to create an ombre lilac background. I smeared the Spring Heather ink pad on my craft mat and mixed it with Moonstone Glimmer Paste to create my own color. I applied the Moonstone paste on the top and then used my spatula to create a nice blend between the two colors.

After letting the Glimmer Paste dry overnight, I trimmed down the piece to 4″ by 5 1/4 ” and adhered it on one of the patterned papers from the Dream In Colour 6×6 Paper Pad. Next, I stamped a sentiment from the Secret Garden stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. To finish off this card, I applied Tonic Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops and Nuvo Supernova Dream Drops.

That’s it for now. Thank you so much for stopping by. I’ll see you soon. 💜💌

Happy Wednesday, friends! I’m enjoying my second week of my internship at Kindergarten and I’m having so much fun. I also love the fact that I’m finally able to have some crafty time in the weekends. This weekend I played some more with the Nuvo Embellishment Mousse from Tonic. In this video, I’ll be showing you how to create an emboss resist background with Nuvo Embellishment Mousse. Super fun! 💛

First I embossed an adorable heart background using the Seeing Hearts stamp set from Winnie & Walter. I used my favorite white embossing powder from Wow. After applying masking paper to my card, it was time to create the background. I simply took a small amount of paste from the jar and started working it around until it softened enough. I also added a tiny bit of water to make the ink blending smoother. Make sure to use a small amount of water since we’re not using watercolor card stock here! The colors I used are called Spring Green and Aquamarine. They’re gorgeous!

Create Emboss Resist Backgrounds with Tonic Nuvo Embellishment Paste

I let this background dry for about 15 minutes. There was a little bit of paste left on the embossed hearts so I took a baby wipe and wiped that away. Easy! I colored the bunny and cat from the Welcome to the Family set from Winnie & Walter with Copic Markers and used the coordinating dies to cut the images out.

To finish off this card, I die cut a speech bubble from the Sketchy Thoughts die cut set from Winnie & Walter. I embossed a sentiment and then put everything together with foam squares. I also stamped a sentiment from the Sending You set from Winnie & Walter and adhered a tiny die cut heart next to it. Finally, I used my Nuvo Shimmer Pen and Crystal Glaze to add extra dimension and shine to the heart. ⭐

I’m loving this product and I can’t get enough of it. Have you tried out this product? I’ll be back soon. Thanks for stopping by. Big hugs. 💌
