Favourite Die Day

Hellooo, good morning and welcome!! There is a new challenge theme at

As You Like It Challenge

and it's Your favourite die (don't forget to tell us why)

A trawl through my posts revealed that my tonic dies have featured largely in the months that I have owned them. I can only attribute this to the fabulous range of sizes in the set, large enough for a card base (as demonstrated above) yet teeny ones for the centre of flowers too.
I chose to use my much loved, yet largely ignored, PB stamp and coloured it with Spectrum Noir pencils (it has to be said I am enjoying using these) and added some glamour dust for a bit of sparkle. The papers were the LOTV magazine freebies. Bow and flower from the stash.

I am joining in at these challenges

This is just too pretty, Sarah! Love those gorgeous pinks! Have to say I’m loving my SN pencils and my fabby Tonic dies too! I’ve never tried using them to make a card base though, I will now! xx

I am with you on the functionality of the Tonic circles Sarah, I had the original and much smaller Spellbinders for years but the size of the Tonic ones makes them far more versatile. And I like the little storage pouches as well.

On the your card and its so pretty with the soft pastel colours, thanks for sharing it with us at Stamping Sensations and Penny Black and More challenges.

I think I will have to get those dies Sarah. Your card is so beautiful. I coveted that penny black stamp ages ago but it was sold out every time I tried to purchase. I still love it though. Michelle x
