Diamond Survivor

Diamond Survivor

Hello my crafty friends,

It has been a couple months since I last posted time has flown by.

As a lot of you know Susan Tierney Cockburn has joined Tonic Studios and yesterday they had a launch of her 1st release of her beautiful flower dies  under the Tonic Studios Logo on Create & Craft.   I am so excited to once again be a member of Susan’s Design Team I feel honored to represent her.

My post today features a few of those dies.

As you know October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and so my card was designed for a friend that is a breast cancer survivor.

My card is 6″ X 6″ I used Tonic’s card base.

Embellishment Mousse (Spring Green) was used along with their Stencil Twisting Circles to create background in center.

Pink cardstock was cut 5-3/4″ square and Diamond was cut in center.  Next white cardstock was cut 5-1/2 square and Diamond was cut in center of it using next larger size.  These were layered over the background on card front.

Japanese Painted Fern was cut from green cardstock Copic E09 was used to color stems and white PanPastels was used to give it the dusty look.  Using tweezers pinch up on fronds.  Using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive adhere ferns to right side of diamond opening.

Beauty Berry Bush die was cut from green cardstock berries added by using Nuvo Crystal Drops Autumn Red.  These were added over ferns using adhesive.

Using the Helleborus die cut out 3 flowers from white cardstock colored with Copic Marker, shaped and put together.  Add to the berries and ferns.

Stamped sentiment on white cardstock then layered onto pink cardstock.  Dimensional tape was used to attach.

While Susan is in UK she is filming YouTube videos on creating these beautiful flowers.

Eventually I will try to get back to typing tutorials for my cards but at this time I will just try to get cards posted.

I do hope that you have enjoyed my creation today and hope that you will check back often to see other creations.

Below I have linked products used if you click on a picture it will take you to their site where you can purchase.

Unfortunately Susan’s dies are only available from Create & Craft for the next 30 days then they will be available from Tonic.

Thanks for stopping by today and until next time – Happy Crafting!
