Floral Bouquet with Nuvo Alcohol Markers

Hello Crafters!

I shared this card a few days ago over on the Tonic Studios Blog and wanted to make sure to share here too!

It's my first post as a design team member for Tonic so you know I had to represent those flowers haha!


I started by stamping all my flowers out with some products that were new to me. I used the Nuvo Hybrid Black Shadow Ink which is safe for alcohol markers and Craft Perfect White Cardstock. They worked really well together! I went to work with my Nuvo markers staying in shades of yellow, orange, and pink. I wanted them to be friends but not twins you know what I'm saying! 



After they were all colored up I outlined them because my love for a bold black outline will never die. Then I fussy cut them out to build my bouquet. I also die cut and stamped my banner. Since this is the frame for my flowers I needed it to build around. 

You can see the entire card from start to finish in the video below. 




Even though the stenciling is hard to see in the photos in real life it's much more visible. One of those tricks of the camera. This time not in my favor ha.


I recently acquired more colors of Nuvo markers so I'm excited to see incorporate those into my collection!
Thank you so much for visiting!

Happy National Tea Day!



Hello Crafters! 

Happy National Tea Day! 
Didn't know that was a thing? Me either. 
However I'll take any excuse to use a mug set :) 

You should have arrived from the wonderful  Bibi cameron's blog. If not head over to the Coffee Loving Card Maker's blog to start. 

Leave comments along the way for a chance to win one of TWO $30 Honey Bee Stamps Gift Cards.  Commenting will be open until Friday, April 26 at 11:59 pm pacific.  A winner will be announced on both the Coffee Loving Cardmaker’s and Honey Bee Stamps blogs on April 27th.  Winners will be picked from across all participating blogs, the more you comment, the more chances to win.


I really wanted to do a full scene card but unfortunately there wasn't time. Never enough time in the day ya'll. I settled for a counter top. 
I stamped and masked my images using my MISTI and just used a ruler to create my countertop. I opted for an angle to make it a bit more interesting. 


I wanted the counter to look like a cozy little place for two so I used the largest mug and turned it into a vase. I added the peony which I love but then I tried to make the cups and plates fancy. I should have stopped at the vase haha!  

Even though this ones not my favorite it's okay. Every card can't be :) I do hope it sparks an idea that you can carry on to another card. 


And that was originally the end of my blog post....But. 
I had to change it ya'll. This card had potential lol. 
I finished out my scene the night after. I'm so happy I did. 
This is what I saw in my head. 

You can watch the card in it's many stages in the video below. 


I know scenes aren't for everyone but they are definitely for me. I couldn't be happier with the way it came out even if I took the scenic route to get there :) 


Your next stop on the hop is Jo Ann Danchik who has an awesome tutorial for you! 
Thanks for stopping by! 
and Happy Easter!
