Happy hellos to all of you fellow Tonic and Nuvo lovers! Karen here again today to share several romantic projects I made with Nuvo’s fabulous new Glimmer Pastes and Tonic Studios Layering Die Sets. I love playing with new products trying different surfaces and ways to use dies for card making and gift giving. The new Traditional Hearts Layering Basic Die Set has 7 sizes of hearts and I used them all at the same time to cut out the layered red and silver heart on my card. I die cut them on Tonic’s red and silver mirror card and used every other colored heart on my white wedding cardbase. I die cut the romantic couple from Tonic’s Silhouette Scenes First Dance and applied Black Diamond Glimmer Paste. When dry, I attached the couple and the love arrow to the card front.
Glimmer paste is also lovely on specialty cardstock like Tonic’s mirror card. I applied red and silver glimmer paste to two hearts I die cut on the front and the inside of my wedding card.
I created my heart gift box with the Traditional Hearts Layering Dies and Garnet Red and Golden Crystal Glimmer Pastes and a paper mache’ heart box. For the top of the heart box, I die cut red and gold mirror card hearts. I applied Nuvo Garnet Red Glimmer Paste through a scalloped stencil on the gold heart and set that aside to dry. I also applied the red glimmer paste to the side of the top of the box, and when it was dry, I layered the red mirror card heart, the gold glimmer paste heart and a love arrow cut with the Sent with Love Miniature Moments die.
I discovered even more gorgeous color with the glimmer pastes by mixing two together! I mixed the Garnet Red and the Golden Crystal Glimmer pastes on a craft sheet and then applied the lovely mix to the side of the paper mache’ heart box with an inexpensive craft brush. I love how pretty that mix is!
