Sweet Nothings

Do you have any parties planned in the near future? Then you need to look at Tonics new die set - Sweet Nothings.  They are a range of 3 envelopes,  but they are so much more
The large envelope, Delicate Embrace,  will make the perfect  size invitation.

The middle  sized envelope, Treasured Token,   is perfect for a gift card for that special  someone.  It could also be an RSVP  to send out with your  party invitation  or a mini photo album holding photos of that special  occasion.

The mini envelope,  Secret Whisper,  is perfect for notes for the special person  in your life. It could be used to write messages for the bride & groom or even extra special tombola tickets at your fundraising event.

There is certainly  lots of fun to be had with this set of dies.

Catch  up  with  you  soon

A Mahusive Welcome to the 1st Win & Tonic Challenge

Thank you for joining us today on the very special  occasion,  this is the launch of the Win & Tonic Challenge.  We know there are a huge amount of crafters who love Tonic products.  So we thought we'd  give you another reason to get your dies  out and create.

The Challenge will start on 15th of every  month  and the winner will be announced on the 14th. So this month's winner will be announced on 14th June. So you have a whole month to create your wonderful projects.  The rule is you have to use a Tonic product  in your project.

This month's  theme is
Anything Goes 

If there's  a winner,  there must be a prize  and this month's prize  which has been donated by Tonic Studios  (thank you so much for your support )

This month's  amazing prize is 

Two fabulous  Layering Die sets 



                 Nuvo Crystal drops


Nuvo Glitter Drops

As we are having the Twisting Veranda set as part of our prize I thought
I would use this to make my card.  I've kept it plain & simple by using just 2 colours. I had to add a ribbon as a finishing touch  and of course some flowers  and the wonderful  Nuvo Crystal drops.

I hope you enjoy looking at the wonderful  cards made by the team. I look forward to seeing your wonderful projects

Patterned Panels to Delight

Summer has finally arrived in  Bridgend  today, I really  hope it stays, at least for a while, lol.
Today I've  got some cards to share with you using the new Tonic Patterned  Panel  die  sets. There are 6 sets of dies, the outer edges will all interchange with the inner patterned die. All the geometric  dies can be extended  to make a bigger pattern.
This card is made using the Damask  Patterned Panel.  I love the elegance of this design.

This has to be my favourite  of the Panels.  I think it's  a very modern  design that could easily be  paper pieced or possibly  glittered.

Hope you like  today's shares.
Thanks for visiting
