Nuvo Tonic Shimmer Backgrounds Made Into Cards

Here are the backgrounds I made recently turned into cards. I’ve enjoyed making the backgrounds but I’m going to use up a few of my kits next. I’ve separated the die cuts out and sorted according to colour so I can just pick out what I want to use quickly. Hope you like them, just easy matting and layering to make these up. The second one down is actually a whole sheet from a Debbi Moore kit, I didn’t make that background. 💙

Dawn Bibby Fantasy Flowers – a selection

I have made a few more cards from Dawn Bibby’s Fantasy Flowers kit. I haven’t added sentiments yet as I haven’t decided which to use. The two easel cards were made by cutting just the top layer, the pink one on both sides and the mauve one just on one side. I then stuck the small cut pieces to the base, scored the part that was left and folded it over to make the easel. The blue card has another card facing the other way inside it. I’m going to put something like WISHING YOU … on the front, A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY … on the inside white page, then TO A SPECIAL FRIEND ….. on the final inside page.

Dawn Bibby Fantasy Flowers Kit card 1

My first card made from my @dawnbibbycreations Fantasy Flowers kit from @createandcrafttv. Beautiful colours and great quality. As usual finished it off with highlights of @tonicstudios #nuvodrops in the same colour to match

Rapunzel

This is my Rapunzel card made up into an easel card. I keep saying it but I’ve fallen in love with @tonicstudios drops – they dry so quickly and keep their shape perfectly. Rapunzel topper from my Hunkydory kit. #cardmaking #papercraft #handmadecards #cardmaker #papercrafting #handmade #cards #cardmakinghobby #papercrafts #card #crafting #handmadecard #cardmakingideas #craft #crafts #greetingcards #hunkydorycreations

Mauve Birthday Magnificence

I think this is the nicest card making kit I’ve ever bought – beautiful colours, quality card stock. The base card was a plain mauve from @createandcrafttv with a darker piece of mauve I already had. The rest is all from a @kanban_crafts kit Magnificence. It’s all so pretty it’s the sort of card, paper and toppers you don’t want to use you just want to look at! Well I’m starting to use it and can look at the photos 😃. I’ve made a black, gold and silver card from the same kit but can’t post till the weekend as it’s for a friend’s anniversary. I added two peel off butterflies, the dirt where they are only sticky in the middle, added some large gold and clear corners accented with @nuvobytonic drops. I love it 💙 #cardmaking #papercraft #handmadecards #cardmaker #papercrafting #handmade #cards #cardmakinghobby #papercrafts #card #crafting #handmadecard #cardmakingideas #craft #crafts #greetingcards #butterflies #purple #mauve #gold
