Tonic Studios meets Mintay Papers "Happy Place"

Hello again my lovely's  I hope you are all well and keeping safe!!

I'm here today to share a card I made using various Tonic Studio dies, foamiran 
along with the beautiful Happy Place paper range from Mintay Papers available HERE 

I will add links when describing the products used in order for you to source them.

The largest with the four curved corners. I then cut out the 1st layer of paper 
using the next size down die.  The large rectange lacy die was cut using the 
Exquisite envelope insert die set, cutting the base first in pearlescent blue frost
card stock and then again using the inlay die in white card stock before
adhering them together.    The frame and cutapart and enjoy all came from
Mintay Papers.

For my flowers I used Tonic Studios White Foamiran  and coloured it using some oil pastels
I made the leaves from the foamiran too by using a leaf mould and colouring them when
dried with distress inks.  

Here is a close up of those pretty flowers.

Thank you so much for popping in to visit, I hope you enjoyed my project
and you'll come back to see me real soon.

Tonic Shadow Box Card

Hello my lovely's,  I hope you are all well and keeping safe.  I'm here today sharing 
a shadow box creation using the fabulous Tonic Studio Shadow Box Die set.
I am so in love with this amazingly verstile die.  If you saw my previous post you 
will have seen the easel card I created using just the largest die and one of the corner
accent dies.   Well here is what it actually makes.  I did use one other die from the Cherished
Sentiments shadow frame die set to cut out the aperture 
My base papers are from Tonic Studios and the floral papers are from Anna-Marie Designs
Flowers are from I Am Roses, sentiment is from Stempleglede. 

Thank you so much for popping in to visit.  I hope you'll come back and see me soon.

Take Care Easel card

Hello my dear friends,  I haven't been posting for a while due to giving up my Design 
Teams over the past month.  When Facebook took it upon themselves to ban my Blog
links due to someone reporting my post as spam out of sheer SPITE!! I lost my enthusiasm
and mojo for a while!! After 10 years of Blogging and sharing my love of craft it was
like someone punching me in the guts.

Unfortunately I still can't link back to my blog but the fight has come back and I'm
determined to keep sharing my love of crafting. I will continue to try and
find a solution to the FaceBook scenario!!!  I have opened up another blog
and will try to resolve the issues with this one but in the meantime I will
not be posting much here if you wish to follow my new blog it is 

I recently bought some fabulous Tonic Studio Shadow Box die sets and using just the basic
set I made this fabulous shaped easel card using the largest 2 dies and one of the many
corner accent dies.   I love the result.

The papers are Life Stories from Mintay.  I created the flowers from the same papers
but the leaves are all fussy cut from the new 6x8 floral book.

Here is a couple of close up pics of them 

Thank you so much for popping in to visit with me I hope you'll come 
back to visit again with me soon.
