You’re A Star

Hi there peeps – hope you are all OK today.

I’ve not posted for a while as I’ve had all sorts of stuff going on – none of it good really – but we are all OK now and it’s back to crafting again.

Before I get to the card, I just have to tell you that I have set up a brand new blog which is specifically for my Tonic Studios makes ( I’ll still be using this one as well) . But everything ‘Tonic’ will be put on there and all in one place so it will hopefully make things a lot easier to find. You can check it all out right here.

So the card I made here is for the challenge over at Papertake Weekly and we have our

Anything Goes

theme with the option of making something summery.

And …

.. this is what I did.

I used beautiful Tonic Studios Star Layering die set which is available from Crafty Devils and I created lots of dimension by scoring the stars from the tip of each point, right the way across to the other side and I did this on all 5 points, then I simply valley and mountain folded the creases.

The beautiful papers are Lili of The Valley Sunny Side Up and they will be available from this Saturday 6th June.


The white star background was made using the dies from the set as well. 
I used the 2 smallest dies and cut several out and then glued them randomly down onto a piece of card.

Then I ran a Nuvo Glue Pen around the outside of each star and sprinkled it with  Nuvo Pure Sheen Diamond Glitter.

Do you like the little sparkler?
I nicked this idea from Jodie so I can't take the credit, but what a fabulous idea.

She used the new Tonic glue gun and just put a blob onto a glass craft mat then covered it with glitter.
A few minutes later, you have a gorgeous little embellishment that has cost you next to nothing to make and looks lovely.

So that’s my card and thank you for stopping by today.
I hope you like the new blog and  that it makes life easier if you are just looking for the Tonic stuff.

Have a great day and hugs to all xxx
