Cards using Tonic Studios Craft Kit #15

Hi friends,
I hope today find you well! I am sharing a few cards made with my Tonic Studios Craft Kit #15. Let's just say I wanted to get my feet wet with this kit, and I decided to incorporate some of the lovely dies into some much needed cards.

Here is a peek at most of the items I used on this card! WOW!
It looks like a lot, but this is because I LOVE to use what I have. The image of the little nurse has been in my stash for YEARS! 

C.C Designs Nurse Nora,  Stampendous Daisy Thanks, AC Bible Journaling Stamps
There are several layers on the front and inside of this card. For the background, I selected a soft green and blue card that I distressed and inked on the edges. On top of that, I used Kraft card that I cut using the book cover die, and also inked to make sure it had the same look throughout.
Gelly Roll Pen, Nuvo Drops, Ranger Distress Crayons & Oxide Ink
I used some lovely stamps that I colored using Nuvo Alcohol markers, and even added some earrings with Nuvo Jewel Drops. This added a delicate shine to my stamped image. 
The sentiment is a partial Biblical verse from American Crafts, which I also love to incorporate into my gifts and cards. It was finished off with some glimmer, and a yarn bow for softness in a lovely bright blue.
The colors in this card set were all cohesive, and made it easy to keep incorporating different hues and textures. Watch my video for more pointers!

Thank you for reading, and of course, more importantly, 
Be Inspired, Be Blessed!

My Book of Special Memories Mini Album with Tonic Studios Dies

Hi friends,  I am here with a brand new set of dies from Tonic Studios and yet another adorable mini album! This one is perfect for a little girl, a mother of a little girl, or a cat lover, or all of the above! I am thrilled with this collection of dies, and how easily I am able to put paper on pages to assemble the perfect little personalized gift!

On the cover, and throughout, I have used the  CUTE GIRL collection from Crate Paper. As a cat-lover, I could not resist, and the floral designs were easy to repeat with the layered Tonic die-cut that I assembled and colored using Nuvo Pens and Nuvo Glitter pen. The little roses all have some sparkle!

The cluster of flowers is all handmade by yours truly, and I used Sizzix Dies by Tim Holtz, felt, and small pearls that I stitched together.  The cat, butterfly, and flower buttons helped me complete the look. Adorable!!

The spine of a book is equally as important as the front. So for this, I used all the little strips left over from my favor…

Hope Frame with Bible Verse

I was inspired to write this Bible verse to go along with this picture frame and Hope banner. It can be found in Psalm 31: 24, and it reads: "Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord." Suffering from any type of cancer is devastating, and the words of David in what is one of the most beautiful books of the  Old Testament can really shed some light into a relationship in which the only comfort that really made a difference was the one promised by our very maker. If you, or someone you know is suffering from this horrible disease, my hope is that you find comfort not only in your surroundings and those you know, but also in the love of our God, just as David did in the darkest moments of his life.
For this project I used the Cricut to make the banner and flowers. I hand-painted the Bible verse and background with watercolors, color pencils, and ink. TFL!
I'll also be sharing this over at Link up for Pink.

OMG Moment

So have you ever had one? You know, an OMG moment? I end that phrase with "gosh" by the way. And yes, we all have OMG moments, and for that occasion, here's a card! Interpret as you wish. I'd like to enter it into Crafty Creations Challenge #111- In Stitches, and into Scrappy Moms  Smiley Cards challenge. TFL!
