Another Card for the I Am Roses DT

Hello dear friends!

I am here with one more card that I made for the I Am Roses design team.


I like how a card (or any other creative projects) gets alive once you add flowers to it! I also like how versatile the colors of the I Am Roses flowers are - so easy to match any possible color scheme.



Here are the flowers that I used for completing this card:
R22-00
S3-148
LY3-99
LY3-158
R4-400
R4-50
S10-148
S10-161


The stamp that I used is by My Favorite Things, from the set called "Somebunny". The dies are a mix of Spellbinders, Magnolia, Fantasy, La-La Land Crafts and a few unbranded ones from AliExpress.

Please do join our monthly Anything Goes Challenge and see you soon!

September Kit from La-La Land Crafts + Recipe Box Tutorial

Hello dear friends!

I have two projects to share with you today and one of them will be followed by a tutorial. Both of the projects are featuring a super adorable September Club Kit from La-La Land Crafts.


You can find all the details concerning Club Kit subscriptions here.


So, first, I have made a card using all the dies from the kit and "From My Kitchen Marci" stamp.


I fell in love with the little doilies, and the cute little jars!! 




Besides the kit dies, I have also used the following:
Nested Frames Large
Nested Frames Small

Marci was colored with Copic markers:
Skin: E04, E11, E01, E000
Hair: E29, E27, E25, E23
Dress: W3 + E53, E51, E50 + R24
Apron: N3, N1, N0 + R24, YG99, YG95
Shoes: T4, EY19, Y15

The second project is using the "Beary Special" stamp set from the kit.


I made a recipe box, which has magnets on the back and can be attached to a kitchen fridge door.

**The recipe of the baguettes was taken from You Tube.


The bears were colored with Copics:
T7, E77, E74, E71, E70
E55, E53, E51
E04, E11, E01
E09, R24

Besides the kit dies I've used a few additional dies to complete the recipe box:
Pierced Scalloped Circles
Double Stitched Circles

Below you can find a video tutorial for creating the recipe box and to have a closer look at the contents of the September 2018 Club Kit.



Thanks for stopping by!

Two Projects with the Tonic Craft Kit 13

Hello!

My today's post will be dedicated to the Tonic Craft Kit 13 which I had a chance to try and work with. I need to mention that I until now I did not have  any of the Tonic Studios dies, and I was pleasantly surprised with their quality. 


On You Tube you can find numerous videos of un-boxing this kit, as well as various inspirational tutorials which give you an idea about using the kit in many different ways.

Tonic Craft Kit 13 contained:
Gift Card Box Die Set
Gift Card Holder Die Set
Gift Card Stamp Set
Classic Card - French Blue
Pearlescent Card - Navy Dazzle 
Speciality Papers - Crushed Metal 
6x6 Card Pack - December Skies
Mini Glitter Drop - Dazzling Blue 
Mini Crystal Drop - Liquid Mercury 
Mini Glimmer Paste - Moonstone
Glitter Pot - Silver Tinsel
Mica Mist - Nebula Blue
Surprise Gift (this time these were the Glitter Markers)
Craft Kit Sticker

The dies in this kit were designed to let you create a gift card holder in the shape of a box. I used it as planned, but added a shaker feature to the box.






My second project features mostly the dies from the Tonic Craft Kit 13, other than the rest of the goodies which were in the kit. I made a little vintage style notebook and you can have a look at it here:





There is a lot of stamping in the notebook, as well as using the die cut shapes as masks and creating interesting patterns with them.










You can view the process of putting both of the project together in the video below. I hope it will give you some ideas about using the kit #13 (if you already own one), inspiration for making something with other kits or just encourage you to subscribe for the next kits, which are always a surprise :)

Have a great day!
