Hello Gorgeous Fox Card by Heidi Blankenship

Hello everyone!  It’s Heidi here today and I have a cute and shimmery card to share with you using one of the new Woodland Buildables die set.  The Frankie Fox die is the first die set I have used in the Woodland Buildables collection.  I have to say I love how quick and easy it is to assemble these little critters.

To start die cut all of the different pieces for the fox.  I used a quartz and copper shimmer paper.  Be sure to save the packaging for the die template.  Tonic has images of the dies on the inside of the package to let you know what each die is for–eyes, ears, body.

HelloGorgeousFoxCardHMB042017-3

After all of the pieces were die cut then I started to assemble the fox.  I used Nuvo deluxe adhesive to adhere all of the pieces.  This is a fantastic glue, it has a quick grab and it dries clear.  As you can see in the picture I originally cut a pink bow that I was going to use with the fox but I decided to use a flower instead.

HelloGorgeousFoxCardHMB042017-4

For the card front I used the mixed edge rectangle layering basic die set.  I die cut a piece of white cardstock with a scalloped edge and then I die cut a second layer using the straight edge die and shimmer pink paper.  I wanted to add some texture and interest to the card front so I used the cascading pearls stencil and two colors of the Nuvo embellishment mousse, peony pink and pink flambe.  I used some painted tape to hold the stencil in place and I used a palette knife to spread the mousse.  The mousse is so nice and creamy and very easy to use with the stencils.

HelloGorgeousFoxCardHMB042017-5

I used the entwinning trellis plush peony die set along with pink cardstock to create the flower.  I used the Floral Crafters Tool Set to shape the flower and then I glued the layers together using the Nuvo deluxe adhesive.  Next, I used the Nuvo glue pen medium and Nuvo sparkle dust rose quartz to add just a touch of sparkle to the flower.  For the flower center I added a small drop of Nuvo crystal drops gloss dandelion yellow.  I used versamark ink to stamp the sentiment on to a piece of black shimmer paper and then I heat embossed it using Nuvo embossing powder glacier white.  I cut the ends of the paper to create a little banner.

HelloGorgeousFoxCardHMB042017-6

To finish of the card I adhered everything to a black A2 top folding card base.  I hope you enjoyed my card share and thanks so much for joining me today!  I just love this little fox die, it’s a cute little critter and fun for all ages.

Happy crafting!

Forever in Love Layered Wedding Card-Karen Hasheck

a tonic wedding

Summer weddings will be here before we know it and so today I am sharing how to make a gorgeous layered wedding card with new Tonic Studio dies, stamps and Nuvo products which will be available soon for purchase from your favorite retailer.

Supplies used to make this project:

Here are the directions how to make a layered wedding card like this one:

  1. Cut a white cardbase 6½” by 10½” and fold in half. Cut three more white pieces of cardstock 6½” by 5¼” and die cut rectangle openings in successive sizes with Tonic Studio’s Mixed Edge Rectangle Layering dies.
  2. Layer the pieces of white cardstock on the folded cardbase with the smallest rectangle hole first. Attach each with temporary tape to hold in place.
  3. On a glass mat such as Tonic’s 465 model or a craft mat, mix yellow color from the new Nuvo Lemon Zest Aqua Flow Pen and gold glitter from the Nuvo Gold Glitter Marker to form a golden yellow color. Wrinkle up a piece of cling wrap, pick up some of the golden yellow color and pat it on the 4 layers randomly.
  4. Take the layers apart and stamp “forever” on the bottom cardbase. Put pop dots on the three layered frames and attach each starting with the smallest rectangle opening to the largest.
  5. Die cut the First Dance couple and frames out of white and black cardstock. Glue together and attach on the side of the bottom layer.
  6. Die cut two leafy trellis pieces with the Buttercup Sunburst Window Box Die Set and attach with glue to the bottom and top of the layered cardfront. TIP: Try looking at your die cuts differently then the sample shown on the packaging. These dies are sold to make window box (or bendi fold) cards, but I used them to make the beautiful trellis top and bottom of the card front and also on the inside of the card.
  7. Cut several sizes of the Bellus Buttercup flowers out of yellow tissue paper. Crinkle the tissue paper for dimension and put a brad through them to hold the flower together. Sponge some gold glitter marker on the edges and color the brad with Dandelion Yellow Crystal Drops. Here’s a close up of the golden yellow color created with this combination of the Nuvo products:

8. For the inside of the card, die cut another leafy trellis and color it with the Lemon Zest Aqua Flow Pen. TIP: Adding soft color is so easy using Nuvo’s brand new Aqua Flow Pens. I suggest that you start pushing some color from the aqua pens out onto a glass mat or craft mat, then use the brush to pick up the color and paint on the piece directly. This will help prevent any unwanted blobs of color on your card or project.

9. Die cut the Congratulations sentiment and attach with Nuvo glue.
