Tonic craft kit 12 | Unboxing and Inspiration

Have you seen the new Tonic Craft kit 12? Another lovely kit, packed with gorgeous products. Today I am going to show you what’s included and then share 3 cards to inspire you.

The kit comes with an exclusive set of 39 dies and a little stamp set of 10 clear stamps. These are exclusive to the kit and you can’t get the separately.

Just the amount of dies can justify the price but you get so much more including specialty paper, gorgeous cardstock, sequins, nuvo drops, embossing powder, an aqua shimmer pen and even plastic pouches for your shaker cards! Oh and you get to play first with the new vintage drops, before they hit the stores!

And don’t forget your mystery gift that I am not gonna reveal (but you will love it!)

The obvious is to create stunning shaker cards with this kit, so I decided to share 3 different ways on how to use them.

card 1

My first card is a leaf shaped one. I combined different sizes of the leaf die and papers from the kit. My sentiment is mebossed with the embossing powder included and all I added in this card that wasn’t included in the kit is the ribbon.

The papers I combined from the kit are the Tonic WELSH GOLD Glitter Cardstock ( SSS | TNC ) and the Tonic Embossed Card Champagne Harlequin ( SBC | TNC | SSS ).

card 2

For my second card I used the left over cardstock I had from the first card. Love this combination as it creates such an elegant look. Again I used the same embossed sentiment and I embellished my front panel with leaf cut outs.

Quick and simple card but so sparkly!

card 3

For my third card I went with a watercolored look. I used one of my aqua flow pens (indigo dawn) from the Winter Skies set( TNC | SSS | SBC ) and then I dropped on top Aqua Shimmer – Midas Touch( SBC | SSS | TNC ). It adds so much shine!!!

The sentiment was white embossed in advance on the paper and it is readable since it resists the aqua flow pens. For the background panel I used Tonic Satin Card Copper Mine ( SBC | SSS | TNC ).

It is stunning in real life but so hard to take a photo of all that shine… check the video though as it shows better! To finish off my card I added a few hearts I cut out using the same cardstock as the base and I also added a few dots of Nuvo Crystal Drops Gloss – Auburn Pearl ( SBC | SSS | TNC ).

    I’m so sad—the kit is already sold out in the US 😢
    I loved your 2nd card with the little leaf dies—that’s when I decided to order. But then realized it was too late.

    I don’t think I could choose a favorite this time. They are all so beautiful in their own way. These kits are on my radar

    Stunning cards Vicky, it is hard to pick a favourite but I think it is the gorgeous purple and copper card, it is so beautiful! Thank you for the great tutorial, it was really inspiring, so much so that I signed up for the Tonic kit monthly and #12 is the first one I will receive, so excited to get it.

    Vicky: always a joy to watch you videos. I love how you used the dies to reveal the glitter card stock underneath. I am reluctant to use specialty card stock as a frame and you have shown a great way to show it off.
