Nuvo Pure Sheen Glitter and Wood paper

We’re back! As promised, here is a fun project using Tonic Studios Nuvo Pure Sheen Glitter andNuvo Glue pen on our Cherry Wood Paper.

We are all about planners right now. Hopping onto the ‘planner’ movement, we created a 4″ x 8″ planner and covered it with our Cherry Wood paper. We punched a circle window in the middle of our planner cover to show a glimpse of the pages underneath. We decorated the perimeter of that window with a little Nuvo Pure Sheen Glitter. Next we added a small heart chipboard embellishment and gold ribbon to tie the planner closed. We intend on this planner getting fat with contents.

How did we get that glitter so exact?! First let me tell you how awesome these Nuvo Glue pens are! Totally cool. There are two widths and the glue comes out so smoothly. We used the medium pen to write directly onto our Cherry Wood paper. The pen glides so easily across the Wood paper, and you can’t say that for many of the glue pens out there. Plus, it dries clear! Next we applied a little of the Nuvo Pure Sheen Rose Gold Glitter. You get so much glitter in these bottles and a little goes a long way. We let the glue dry and voilà, the Glitter stuck.

We repeated the process to create a second ring of glitter using Nuvo Pure Sheen Diamond Glitter.

Second, if you look closely at the small chipboard heart embellishment you might see a little bit of Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Crystal Drops. Yes, the Nuvo Crystal drops come in glitter finishes too!

Lastly, check out that fabulous Cherry Wood grain! Every sheet of our wood paper is totally unique, giving you one of a kind results every time.

We have more inspiration to share later this week! Stop back to see a couple more projects using Tonic Studios Dies. See you soon.

Nuvo Crystal Drops and Cherry Wood paper

Hello! Today we are excited to share a card pairing our Wood paper and Tonic Studios Nuvo products. When when saw the line up of Tonic Studios new products, we had to get in touch with our friends over there to try them out with our Wood paper.

Tonic Studios has so many great lines of products perfect for any crafter. We got a chance to play around with some of the products from the Nuvo lines and Rococco Dies. Check out this gorgeous and super simple card we created!

The Rococco Dies have so much detail and are very intricate. As usual, our paper cuts beautifully with dies! We cut our Cherry Wood paper using the Dragonfly Brooch Die. Look at the result! This Cherry Wood Dragonfly is so beautiful.

We decided to embellish the Cherry Wood Dragonfly with a little Nuvo Crystal Drops. These Crystal drops are amazing and allow you to add three dimensional pearly beads quickly and easily in all sizes. Above we used Gloss White Nuvo Crystal Drops. With the sample below we paired the Cherry Wood Dragonfly with a little Crushed Grape Nuvo Crystal drops. A little bit of Wood paper and Crystal Drops can really make a statement, right?!

Double your Patriotic decor with this 2-sided banner

July 4th is just around the corner. We LOVE decorating for this holiday but our physical space for seasonal decor is limited this year. We wanted to show our red, white & blue pride and needed a small and simple solution. We made this mini double-sided patriotic banner using Birch wood paper and a few simple supplies. The entire banner assembled is 12″ x 5″, perfect for any small space. We decorated the flip side for variety. Happy 4th!

Tip: We wanted to added just a little texture and shimmer to our banner. We hand drew in the stripe shape with a NUVO Medium Tipped Glue Pen and sprinkled with a little NUVO Scarlet Red Pure Sheen Glitter. The glue pen draws easily and this amazing glitter stuck instantly to the Birch wood paper. So simple.
