Classic Cameos and Thinking of You – Tonic Studios Newest Release


Hi Everyone

Snow has been and gone with us and was replaced with lots of thunder and flashing lights but at least it’s not snow..phew!!

MJ has been wrapped up all warm and cosy in her craft hovel creating a quick little project for you with a couple of the fabulous new releases from Tonic Studios launched this week live from California (lucky them we say!).

MJ has worked with elements of the ‘Thinking of You’ Die Set together with the ‘Cameo Creative Classic Cameos Set 1.  She says it each time but this is a fantastic collection with such value built into the sets with the amount of dies you get in one set!

To start this card she took a 6” square card base.  Embossed a piece of Co-ordinations card and inked over lightly using a Distress Ink to pick up detail and soften the colour.  Then MJ took some vintage pink toned ribbon, tied it in the centre to create the dip, and then wrapped it across the front of the embossed card before gluing to front.


Cameo 1 - Jan 15


Next she die cut the border from the ‘Thinking of You ‘ set together with a matching corner.  Also cut 3 sprigs from the ‘Royal Fern’ die set and 2 ovals using the basic set.  Layered the ovals together, added sprigs. 


Cameo 1 - Jan 15


MJ had to alter the colour of the cameo from it’s rich tan colour to a burgundy tone to match her card stock.  She did this by painting with some acrylic paint.  When dry it was added to oval plaque.  Using glue gel the cameo panel was added on top of the ribbon and left to dry.

To finish the card MJ added the border, corners and pearls.  Voila! Done.
